Had the same thought. I have used that expression (dot not feather) to differentiate between the two MANY times. Have never even thought of it as offensive. Didn't mean it as a slight. Good grief. It is though now days even the obvious physical characteristics of a group of people who claim to be proud of those characteristics get all offended if you use one of those characteristics to describe who you are referring to. Makes you want to scream.
Call center not Casino is the one I use.

Already pre-ordered earlier this week. Can’t wait to continue the Harveth series. These books read like an full season of 24. But I’m a Thor fan……even have the carry conceal Alpha jacket he designed.

My original comment was removed from this thread. Not sure why…..I sent a message to Blaze asking why.

I’ve noticed in other stories that the commies at AP refer to it as the former “Jewish Shrine”….. It’s the Muslim 3rd holiest site yet they turn their a$$ to it when they pray.
So what do you know and who could have guessed, the AP is the first media outlet to lockstep go along with the new terminology by "dutifully following PLO marching orders." Hmm.

You’re confused on what it says. We will be “caught up” and meet Jesus in the clouds not on earth.

Maybe they patent the “twerk” and sue the pants off anyone caught doing it?

Monk, In situations when the available channels are at peak capacity or signals are intermittent, text will go through when call will not. A direct call requires immediate access to an available channel and a text is a data package that will wait for the channel to open and shoot across.

Just looks like she was trying to review his “briefs” as any good lawyer would do. He should have introduced her to the case of foot vs ass. Foot won an astounding victory!!!

Am I the only one having problems with the “expand conversations” function? I’m having to expand each conversation individually.

To catch a polar bear: Cut a hole in the ice. Drop peas around the hole. When the bear bends over to take a pea, you kick him in the ice hole…..
Hey tutti fruiti, It’s called Racketeering. Like in the late 70′s as a high school student, I was FORCED to join the meat cutters union to bag groceries and be a cashier at Krogers. Same thing applied when my garage band wanted to play anywhere but local talent shows. Had to join the musicians union and only play where they told us.

This happened to my wife in a Target parking lot and he made sure parked exactly right where she would see him. She called and asked what she should do since the guy didn’t leave. I told her to call the Huntersville police dept and tell them she just witnessed a Car Jacking……

One Second After had an impact on me for months after reading. The location he used was Black Mountain, only an hour away form me. It gave it a more personal touch. Great read!

Joel Rosenberg wrote a scenario in his book Dead Heat where rockets were launched from cargo ships off the coast of several major cities. Had not made it to ports for inspections yet and it happened too fast for jets to scramble and intercept.

Cary NC is actually an acronym for Containment Area for Relocated Yankees
