    The only human being that never misspoke and never had to apologized was crucified.
    Carson’s apology is not the end of the world. Judge the person on their character. Did this one comment and apology totally erase all the fine qualities many of us find in Carson. I think that all the negative postings fall into the category of : Those without sin cast the first stone. How many of you have never had to apologize because your mouth got ahead of your brain?

    While I think he could have given a better more thought out answer or have stated the question was ridiculous, I am not ready to dump him.

    What to do? What to do?

    How about precision and carpet bombing. The best of both worlds.

    As a person who lost an older brother to polio, I fall on the side of getting vaccinated. Further, as an Army brat, I got the full series plus country specific vaccines.

    I agree that he had some real accomplishments during his service. Why he claimed Special Forces when he served in the 82nd and qualified on these advanced skills is beyond me. He did not have to steal valor.

    The ROE should be simple capture officers for interrogation and kill every soldier.

    As a Catholic, I directly support Catholic Relief Services because of the good works that it does.

    Let’s not forget our Protestant brothers and sisters who also contribute time and money for relief of these stricken Christians.

    Back in 1965, Father Daly would measure the distance between couples during a slow dance. If you were closer than 6 inches, you got kicked out of the dance.

    Try the Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area in Minnesota. No motors allowed, no planes can fly over and only canoes allowed. Only the sounds of nature. All camp sites are out of sight of each other and not very close to one another. Portaging can be difficult with distance measured in rods. You can hear the loons call. The fishing is great.

    As a good NCO, you must have known part of your job was to take that butter bar and make him a commander. Many of us were fortunate to have such a NCO. I think I lucked out because my dad was a mustang.

    Thanks CC

    Our beagle is not a guard dog. She is a watch dog. Whenever a stranger approaches our yard, she goes on point, growls and bays. Other than that, she is not a barker. I count on her warning me but not on being an attack dog. Beagles are breed to be hunting pack dogs. As such, they warn their pack.

    At the time of your dog’s death, it is your turn to show unconditional love. Hold them one last time. Speak the words of love.

    We held our Malamute, Sam, before she passed.

    We held our Lab, Maggie, before she passed. The day I had my heart attack, Maggie jumped on my lap and smelled my chest six times. I think she was warning me.

    I held the because I loved them and I hadn’t held my dachshund when she passed. That was an act of cowardice for me.

    If McDonald is not a vet, then he must be a FNG or DUFUS.

    Whenever I see a bumper sticker for Obama, I am amazed that a person so stupid could pass the drivers test. I would never key a car like this. I figure the sticker is key enough.

    Now Fiddler’s Green is a place I’ve heard tell
    Where the sailors go if they don’t go to hell
    Where the skies are all clear and the dolphins do play
    And the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away

    Now when you’re in dock and the long trip is through
    There’s pubs and there’s clubs and there’s lassies there too
    Where the girls are all pretty and the beer is all free
    And there’s bottles of rum growing from every tree.

    Where the skies are all clear and there’s never a gale
    And the fish jump on board with one swish on their tail
    Where you lie at your leisure, there’s no work to do
    And the skipper’s below making tea for the crew

    Now I don’t want a harp nor a halo, not me
    Just give me a breeze and a good rolling sea
    I’ll play me old squeeze-box as we sail along
    With the wind in the riggin to sing me a song

    Your shipmates are waiting.

    Pace et requiem est

    I am convinced my beagle smelled my impending heart attack. She kept jumping on the chair, which she has been trained not to do, and smelled my chest. She did this about 6 times. Then came my heart attack. Fortunately, I only needed one stent. I now pay very close attention to what she does.

    Dogs do rule.

    We should make the words “American Military is coming” the stuff of nightmares in the Mideast. Mothers will use those words to make children obey. Fathers will hold their manhood cheap.

    Many Christian denominations have religious laws that can be enforced. Examples include breaking dress codes (Amish), living a gentile life leads to shunning. Failure to meet the Easter Obligation can lead to excommunication in the Catholic, Anglican and Episcopalian Churches. The Catholic curia hears testimony in cases of civil divorce and rule if an annulment under church law should or should not be granted.

    The big differences between all the Christian religious legal actions and Sharia law is that Christian religious law in voluntary and does not impose Constitutional or civil law and Christians don’t cut off hands or heads.
