Learning a new language is hard and takes many years to master, especially when the two languages are so different. The guy obviously does have working knowledge of English. He just isn’t completely fluent in it. At least he is putting some effort in it as lord knows there are plenty of people who don’t.

what are you talking about? he wants a job so he is doing everything he can to get said job. or is spending every day going “hey you have an opening? i would really like to apply for the opening… hey, just wanted to let you know i am still interested in getting a shot…”
he should be commended for his determination as he is taking his free time and using it to attempt to get his dream job (even if the chances of him getting it are slim).

I only use it to keep in touch with my friends, but if there was a better way to do it I wouldn’t be on Facebook at all
email, sms, phones... there are better ways. leave now Dave. Dave... (2001 a space odyssey flashback sorry)
Be stronger than FB, life it too short. Free yourself...There's REALLY no better way???
1) actually call your friends and family (not a text or tweet)
2) if they truly are your friends and family, invest a little time and write a letter, not an email, it's more personal and a pleasant letter in the mail will brighten someone's day amid all the bills and bs one usually gets in their PO box.
3) the techniques listed above aren't sorcery or dark magic so don't be afraid to give them a try.
fb is for people that truly despise the relativs but likes to keep track of their stupid moves and ugly kids.
There are. E-mail and telephones.
I too use it to keep in touch with friends and family - all over the world. Those morons who say things like use emails (same thing as FB isn't it), sms (simple text messaging, which I do), and telephones (which are OK when PEOPLE ARE AVAILABLE TO TALK you idiot), are the ones who are too stupid to realize the value FB adds. It's better than SMS, more convenient than phone calls in the middle of the night, better than simple emailing, etc. JUST DON'T USE IT FOR POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS. My family is spread all over the planet (Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey, Florida, California, the Philippines, England, etc). FB keeps us all linked together - for family matters, photos, videos, etc. But then again, we use it the was it was originally intended to be used!
Dave, I use the telephone.
how about using the phone? Worked for years.
Dave...you don't have to justify to anyone why you use facebook. I get a bit annoyed at the people who act like they're superior to everyone who do use if. They sound like the atheists who do the same thing.

ya, the blaze is really slipping. they didn’t even make an article about how the sun rose in the east and set in the west.

there were 2 divers. one was sucked up and is now suing the power plant, the other is the one that went back to the boat saying his friend was dead (because he saw him get sucked into the tube and thought he was done for).

i can’t speak for others but i personally have no problems with atheists and have respect for plenty of them. the problem i have is with the anti-theists.

That’s some typo the writer made. That or she is the youngest elderly person I’ve ever heard of.
The statement is correct??
"The 24 year old (the ball player) inferred (guessed) that she (the lady) was going to bake Christmas cookies for her Grandchildren. "
It is not proper English if we are going to turn into the language police today...LOL... While the above definition is technically correct, the one who infers is also the one who is expressing something. You cannot silently, or take no action and infer something. Example:
Hey, I never told you I have been in jail......yes, but you inferred that. IOW.....it was something you did or said that caused be to logically deduce that you you were in jail.
So it was the grandmother who inferred something through her actions, and the football player who deduced a conclusion from the grandmother's inference....The football player inferred nothing at all...he deduced.
Whew....glad that's settled....Now we can go back to fighting over Trump vs. Cruz......
sorry @jerrydon10 the sentence is correct as it was written. Inferred does mean deduce. They are synonyms.
It was a clunky sentence, but correct. The author could have said: The 24 year old DEDUCED that she was going to bake Christmas cookies for her Grandchildren...
Same sentence, but clearer.
But anyway, you are right. Back to what matters...

zappa: “Just what is America reaping and just what as it sown?”
well lets see, for the last few years society (especially in california) has been constantly rejecting God and embracing sin. heck just look at the OT of the bible Israel was constantly going through cycles of:
being in God’s favor > doing evil > losing God’s favor > getting conquered > turning to god > gaining God’s favor and independence again > etc.

Dirt, you are right… you can’t get rid of those passages. however it is worth noting that when the laws are/were practiced it wasn’t some vigilante type system. for someone to even be sentenced to death for breaking those laws you would first have to find a court with the authority to sentence to death and that views the law in question. then you have to get 2 witnesses to testify in the court. it should also be noted that during the time of ancient Israel that with how they limited possible witnesses (someone known to hate you for example couldn’t testify against you), and how closely the cross examined the witnesses made it so the death penalty was very rarely given.

Jesus was not saying that it was “okay to break the sabbath to help the ox” he was saying that it wasn’t breaking the sabbath to do “good”. you see the pharisees were putting too much emphasis on the traditions around the sabbath instead of focusing on the purpose of the sabbath, to the point of even doing good (like in this case healing a person’s hand) was considered breaking the sabbath.
and i would argue that if something violates it then it shouldn’t be done. then again i don’t know of a single instance in the US’s history where a politician would of had to choose between the bible and the law.

Pub, no one is suggestin that they can’t protest racism. However when you sign a contract saying that you will play football in turn for your tuition being payed (what a football scholarship essential is) and then refuse to play football then should the school stop paying for their school?

there is a small problem with that theory though. and that is in Gen. 2:18-23. lets look at what is talked about in these verses:
1.) God said “man should not be alone” and should have a helper
2.) God showed Adam all the living creatures (which would have included other humans if you were right).
3.) Adam found no suitable helper and so God made eve.
4.) Adam calls eve “woman” as she came out of ‘man’.
5.) if eve wasn’t the first woman than he would have already given a name to what she was and so wouldn’t be called woman.
the only logical conclusion is that the “man” and “woman” mentioned in Gen. 1 is the same “man” and “woman” in Gen. 2. the reason their creation is mentioned twice is because Gen. 1 is “the creation story” while Gen. 2 is “the creation of man”.
as for where cain’s wife came from? it would have been a sister. it leaves out how much time passed between able’s death and when he married and it is also entirely possible that at that time of able’s death they had sisters.

If he was getting hit by players he should have just kicked them off the field and if more of them did it then disqualify the team.
No, it would be far more interesting if he shot them.
Its one of those sports where the whole crowd could rush off the field and beat him silly. Not with a gun in his hand though. Not justifying it just understanding it.
Shoot them in the arm; they don't use them anyway.
Only a good, abused referee with a gun can stop bad, abusive soccer players.
Players and refs alike should have loaded guns when they play. It's the only think I can think of that might make Soccer interesting.
Witness your children's future if "we" do not get control of illegal immigration, A.K.A., invasion of our sovereign nation.
He was getting slapped and kicked? He was manhandled? LOL
These guys wouldn't make very good hockey players.
Don't they kill refs there?
Where are all these that say
"he's an off duty cop....you just don't get it".
I'd carry a gun too - You don't want to end up like this referee... http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ab6_1372968263
If he’s a cop, what about putting the offending players up on assault charges? Don’t they have laws against assault in Brazil? Call your buddies, the cops, and have them arrested for assault and battery. Simple. Plenty of video footage I’m sure to bolster you case.
Oh, I forgot……it’s Brazil.
Third worlders. Sheesh. Can’t live with them, and, can’t live with them.

Blink: if it is the minority viewpoint then why did attempts to have states add amendments to their constitutions have to be beat in the courts instead of the ballots?
 September 17, 2015 at 1:52pm
Not to mention that through a good amount of the OT many of the nearby nations practiced things like infant sacrifice… not the greatest cultures you would want your people mingling with…

Um… you do know adulterers aremail by definition already married right? And why wouldn’t she marry fornicators? There sin is having sexual relations outside of marriage, so by marrying they would no longer be “living in sin”. And what about athiests? Just because a person doesn’t believe in God doesn’t mean their relationship is sinful
An adulterer is someone who has committed adultery. They would have to be divorced in order to get remarried, but again, they sinned and that's a big one. As for fornicators, I personally don't care, but it is a sexual/moral sin according to the bible, and she should at least have tried to make sure they had sought forgiveness/repented of the sin. An atheist does not in any way believe in 'holy matrimony' so why would she allow an atheist couple to have a license?

“this is practically the same as Christians saying that others getting gay married somehow violates their own rights.”
there are a couple bakers and a florist that has shown it to be true…

It’s been a while since I’ve been in school but when I was most buses were kinda old and I assume maintaining seatbelts could get expensive for something that wasn’t even used on buses that had them
Dave......the interior of that bus looks fairly new. The seat belt law has been in effect for YEARS. I just don't understand why they don't put them in the buses being built now.
Many newer buses have seat belt and some school systems require every student use one,others just say they are available.
In most states seat belts are not required on any buses, school or otherwise.

It is more of they don’t want history in the wrong context. Just like I am sure you would be against Hitler being there (if it wasn’t limited to Americans) as while we shouldn’t bury the history about him we also shouldn’t put him anywhere that could be viewed as honoring his achievements even though he did some good things.
