It's about time Gen X got into action. We're just sitting back watching this crap go down.
We're allowing the damn old ass Democratic Baby Boomers continue to screw everyone over with their B.S., and they've spoiled the crap out of these "ME" first punks who don't know jack about respect for others, let alone the rule of law.
They're not babies anymore. I feel obligated to do one of two things at this point. If properly planned, their safe space will be back in their little apartment rooms studying again. Or it might be a jail cell for disrupting the peace for others.
We're getting screwed over by both groups, and personally, I'm sick and damn tired of both!
Spot on Apple Bite!!!!! Thank you for pointing that out Gen X better wake up because we are being squeezed on both ends.
Millennials have succumbed to the pampered ideology of their parents who were too busy to teach.
So they made sure the children were well supplied with their iPad and cell phones and to drink the liberal idea that everyone should be protected from any possible harm.

I think it is sad to think a person would accept that cat as a alternative to the real thing.
What have we done to ourselves?
Some oldsters will think this is a dead animal because it doesn’t respond. They will have nightmares thinking they killed it!
Why not spend some time and money on seniors and arrange their facilities to care for therapy animals as well as for the seniors at the end of their lives?
Oops – sorry for that stupid idea. Too difficult, too costly, not cost-effective, nothing gained for all the time and money spent. We can’t even care for our seniors properly. Imagine adding dependent living animals to the equation? Our solution to caring for the sickest least responsive seniors who need the most love and warmth for their remaining time on Earth is to give them a lifeless unresponsive animal substitute to occupy their time with.
Elder abuse is rampant and unreported in our nation’s finest elder care facilities. Can’t we imagine the heath code violations if live animals were allowed in “nursing” homes? Face it – a country that decides 6 Alzheimer’s residents per 1 CNA is an acceptable ratio is not going to do anything to ADD costs to the storage facilities currently licensed to care for these people.
Time to face reality people. We too will one day be one of these old people who will depend on the goodness and intentions of those who will be paid to “care” for us.according to state regulations. Wouldn’t it be nice if old people were treated as if they were honored and appreciated in their final days instead of like impossible burdens?

If you show a respectful attitude toward police, they will return the favor.
And if you behave in public, they will be nice.

They will have to learn the rules of life the hard way.
When I was a kid in church, they passed the plate and my Dad had only a twenty dollar bill and that was more than he could afford. So, to not make a spectacle he put the twenty in the plate…………
then he took out change ! Hahahah!

Something is strange here, and it seems mysterious that they want to make it such a spectacle.

The Israelites were encouraged to do what was righteous time and time again, but as you know, they were a stiff necked people and disobeyed God’s laws and principles at every turn. Don’t even think about blaming Jehovah God for the actions of their own sins.

I assure everyone, that chart is not to be taken as fact.
God’s Word tells us that God created humans to engage in sex only within the arrangement of marriage between a male and a female. (Genesis 1:27, 28; Leviticus 18:22; Proverbs 5:18, 19)
The Bible condemns sexual activity that is not between a husband and wife, whether it is homosexual or heterosexual conduct. (1 Corinthians 6:18)
While the Bible disapproves of homosexual acts, it does not condone hatred of homosexuals or homophobia.
There is no way that 18% of JW's are "accepting" of homosexuality.
The survey asks what religious group that a person most closely identifies with which is not a valid way to form this statistic.
Many people have been contacted by Jehovah's Witnesses and may state that they most closely identify with that faith.
That does not make a person one of Jehovah's witnesses.
Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the bible as is alcoholism.
These practices displease God, but he offers love and support to overcome such harmful courses.
“God’s Word tells us that God created humans to engage in sex only within the arrangement of marriage between a male and a female. (Genesis 1:27, 28; Leviticus 18:22; Proverbs 5:18, 19) ”
So what do you make of the old time Israelites having multiple wives (polygamy) and concubines?
noun: concubine; plural noun: concubines
(in polygamous societies) a woman who lives with a man but has lower status than his wife or wives.
Where does the bible condemn polygamy and concubines? For that matter, how about incest? We are all the products of incest if Adam and Eve are real, and Noah's flood.
The Israelites were encouraged to do what was righteous time and time again, but as you know, they were a stiff necked people and disobeyed God's laws and principles at every turn. Don't even think about blaming Jehovah God for the actions of their own sins.
1. The survey answers are skewed from the questions. For instance, “Should homosexuality be accepted or discouraged by society.” Sense Jehovah Witnesses try to remain neutral in many societal issues, this should be a non-issue. (http://www.pewforum.org/files/2015/11/201.11.03_RLS_II_questionnaire.pdf Question B2-a)
2. The survey shows about 10 to 20 % of Jehovah Witnesses answering opposite to certain beliefs, you need to remember according to “secular statistics” Jehovah Witnesses would be the 10th largest religious group in the world today at around 20 million people , between Sikhism and Judaism. ( Taken from passed studies by the Pew Research Center) Those numbers are basses on maximum attendance at the annual observance of the memorial of Christ Jesus death. The actual number of practicing Jehovah Witnesses today is closer to 8.5 million people. Therefore there are many more inclined to be associated with than those who strictly adhere to their faiths, therefor it is expected to get answers that don’t firmly follow beliefs.
Because there was ample weather report warnings and satellite imagery showing speed and direction to easily avoid it. Instead of 'easily' avoiding it they sailed right into it.
It wasn't until they were close to the eye that they lost power and shortly afterwards losing (battery backup) communication abilities.

Without engine power, the waves and wind will make the ships position go parallel to the waves and then roll over.
Hey it's God posting on the Blaze! How are you God???

The ark (Heb., te·vahʹ; Gr., ki·bo·tosʹ) was a rectangular chestlike vessel presumably having square corners and a flat bottom. It needed no rounded bottom or sharp bow to cut rapidly through the water; it required no steering; its only functions were to be watertight and to stay afloat. A vessel so shaped is very stable, cannot be easily capsized, and contains about one third more storage space than ships of conventional design. There was a door provided in the side of the ark for loading and unloading the cargo.

The Ark was big. In size the ark was 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits high. Conservatively calculating the cubit as 44.5 cm (17.5 in.) (some think the ancient cubit was nearer 56 or 61 cm), the ark measured 133.5 m by 22.3 m by 13.4 m (437 ft 6 in. × 72 ft 11 in. × 43 ft 9 in.), less than half the length of the ocean liner Queen Elizabeth 2. This proportion of length to width (6 to 1) is used by modern naval architects. This gave the ark approximately 40,000 cu m (1,400,000 cu ft) in gross volume. No known cargo vessel of ancient times even slightly resembled the ark in its colossal size. Internally strengthened by adding two floors, the three decks thus provided gave a total of about 8,900 sq m (96,000 sq ft) of space.
