    I think it should match their chromosomes… XX use girl’s bathroom, XY use boy’s bathroom. XXY can pick one and stay with it.

    Some is not synonymous with all.

    I have many friends that don’t agree with me religiously. We get along because we don’t criticize each others’ beliefs. We have other things in common though.

    I was thinking of that Numbers verse too.

    We all have some problems. Some are more socially unacceptable than others.

    They almost put me into a nursing home in my 20s. After a while, it got to the point where I would forget the names of people I saw every day. I avoid them too. Been over 500 days since I had any soda at all though.

    Yeah I would have contacted the gym once… and if they didn’t fix it immediately, I would have made a dispute.

    A little judgemental, are you?

    I’m also a Coke addict. It’s been more than 500 days since my last soda though.

    I’m not sure what my not drinking soda has to do with your belief that I happen to now be a terrible person…

    I was thinking the same thing. He’s known all over the world for his… less than moral behavior… including possibly getting away with an actual murder… and then he thinks they’re pulling him over because he’s black? I think not.

    Not to mention, if he acts IRL anything like he portrays himself in the media, could it be possible that he was less than respectful to the police that pulled him over?

    I highly doubt that if my husband and I were to visit Sweden, we would have the same problems.

    He’s talking about a paper journal. I have one on my desk that I’ve been using for the last 5 years. To see it, the government would have to physically break into my house. It can’t be accessed remotely or electronically.

    I saw the headline about the baby body parts video when I was at Disneyland. My first thought was “well, duh…”

    Does it really take a genius to figure out that they sell body parts? Where do we think that the stem cell lines that were originally used for the MRC-5 vaccine line came from (which is why my kids don’t get certain vaccines)? Where do the stem cell lines for research come from? Where did Pepsi get the aborted cells that they used for flavor research come from?

    It’s disgusting, yes. Am I against it? Of course. Surprised? Not in the least bit. I think I read of one place where they were using aborted babies for heating. Even more disgusting, IMO.

    But the author is right. Society as a whole has grown to accept the devaluation of life, at a wide range of ages.

    I had something similar happen to me. My car hit a guard rail and caught on fire. The only thing that didn’t burn was the Bible. It was all covered in oil though, so I didn’t really use it after that.

    When our house caught on fire, the Bibles didn’t burn either. Although they were covered in soot.

    I have a lot of friends that post stuff on Facebook about all these animals that need to be adopted. This is certainly a way to discourage that. You tax things that you want less of, right? Animal taxes mean that more of them will die.

    My guess is that the same people that are crying over all the animals that need to be adopted are the same ones that want them to be taxed.

    Sorry if I don’t invite my neighbor over for dinner. Nothing against them, they seem very delightful when I see them, but extroversion is not a talent that God has given me. More like extreme introversion.

    I agree with you that name calling and hateful comments are not appropriate. However, not everything is going to be beautiful. When Nero was burning Christians in his garden as candles, was that beautiful?

    Maybe to God it was, because they didn’t back down, and loved the Lord, even to the death.

    Which is a goal that all of us should strive for. Not to hurt others, but to do God’s will, even if it means extreme fines, or even the death penalty.

    Martin Luther King was not always beautiful. People shouted a lot of vile things at him. Did he roll over and say “oh, you’re right.” No. He stood his ground, even when some of his followers were beaten to death. Even though it ended in his assassination.

    I don’t hate anybody. I try not to purposely antagonize anybody. There are some times that I stay silent when I want to speak.

    However, I will not back down on my beliefs. If people think that they can cow me into complying, I will remind them of the thousands of years of Christian history where Christians have been thrown to lions or were burned at the stake for their beliefs.

    It’s not beautiful. It’s not hateful. It’s just the truth.

    In reply to the contribution Dear Christian: Are You Being Beautiful?

    I don’t even have a phone and I want one…

    If a cop wants to shoot me because I have something sticking out of my pocket… that’s his problem. I’m not threatening, and I’m also not afraid of being murdered. I know I’m going to a better place.

    Yep. If you work in a hotel, you’ll find that bed bugs are very common. In a hotel that size, there is probably about one or two rooms at all times being quarantined against them. When I worked at a hotel, if there were bed bugs, the removal people would come in and get rid of them, then the room had to be closed off for maybe two weeks. We’d have to take the adjacent rooms off the market until they could be verified BB free as well.

    Excellent. I turned that into a pool sign.

    I have to agree with Integrity. I would have never thought that an event like this one would end up in a trip to the doctor. Not any more than me going for a walk to the park or sitting at my computer would end up in a trip to the doctor.

    On the other hand, I do believe that the insurance system is screwed up. Why should it cover every little scratch? In the past five years, I’ve gone to the doctor maybe three times. Twice for bronchitis, another time because I fell and sprained my pinky. Insurance shouldn’t have covered any of that. My kids have been the same. They go once a year for a checkup, and they’re perfectly fine the rest of the year.

    But it’s important to have for the freak accidents that happen. It’s just overpriced because it covers every little thing, when it shouldn’t.

    She died, so she didn’t get it back in her lifetime. Hopefully the family will be able to get that money back though.

    The family needs to press criminal charges, and the estate needs to sue the caregiver to get that large chunk of change back.

    Bananas at Wal-Mart never seem to be ripe enough for me… they don’t seem to be ready to eat when I get them.

    My kids will have a bunch and a half of bananas gone in a day or two though. They don’t hang around for long at my house.

    I agree. I’m currently brushing up on my Spanish and German, and learning Irish. I have a couple of books that I’m reading. There’s plenty of interesting things to do that don’t involve watching immoral television shows.
