    They should take a poll in MA asking, “What is your favorite holiday?” Now, what percent do you think would actually choose one over Christmas? Then again, Salem is just 25 miles from Norwood. Seems like the crazies have been around that area for a while.

    I remember one Thanksgiving day years ago… we had just finished our prayer before the meal and all was quiet when my niece (who was around 3 at the time) blurted out, “Grandpa… do you have penis?”

    Um… it doesn’t seem to matter if you want to give something to a Russian or not. They just take it anyway. Certainly don’t have to worry about our president doing anything about it.

    I’ve come to decide that Pro-Life is ALSO Pro-choice. It is: A) the choice to have the child; or B) the choice to allow that child to have the chance of being adopted by a loving family.

    To those who argue it’s not your place to judge someone’s decision: You make far less significant judgments re: others every day. There are some absolutes (wrongs), and murdering unborn children is one of those. We love to excuse the practice with “what if” thinking and obscure it with PC logic. It helps us feel less badly about the horrible things around us that we don’t believe we can change. If you don’t agree that abortion is an absolute wrong, be aware that conditions that have been mentioned by others can be written into the law so abortion is NOT an illegal “absolute.” For example, the law can be written to say abortion is illegal, EXCEPT in cases of rape, incest, or the mother’s life being in jeopardy…. or whatever condition you want to add. It does not have to be an ‘all or nothing’ law.

    Anyone who defines themselves as “Pro-choice,” and not “Pro-life” w/ the above suggested exceptions, is simply a supporter of abortion on demand. Ultimately, the reason doesn’t matter to them. They need to cease calling themselves Pro-choice and refer to themselves as what they really are: Pro-murder.

    With the birth control we have available today, there’s no excuse – other than being sexually assaulted – for having an unwanted pregnancy. One cause: ir

    For all of our sakes, I hope your optimism is realized.

    I enjoyed reading your post. Just a couple things I’d like to say to you. You said you were raised a Christian but was never able to follow it. I certainly don’t believe you’re alone here. No one said living a Christian life was easy. However, I also think there are examples of “religion” distorting what it means to live a Christian life and has making it even harder than it needs to be. Not sure what has caused your questioning of Christ being divine, but there are few, if any Christians without questions. Remember that disciple Thomas questioned quite a bit, and Christ was right in front of him performing miracles. It is man’s nature to question. It is also man’s inability to know everything that makes having faith necessary. When we meet our creator in person, then we will “know.” May God bless you and yours in your life’s journey.

    You said earlier that you learned about Christ on the History Channel. I would encourage you to seek other sources. However, I’m sure even the History Channel spoke of the “supernatural” nature of Christ. The miracles he performed that thousands witnessed would meet the definition of supernatural. Also, after death, he appeared to many witnesses on 3 separate occasions. Even among those to whom he appeared, some did not want to accept what they were seeing. God can only direct us and make sure we “hear” His word. He can’t make us accept it and follow. May God bless you and yours.

    I refuse to make a comment of any kind. Hey…. wait a minute….

    Definitely broadcast on American soil because if they broadcasted from Russia, this footage would have never been seen by anyone except the film crew.

    These kind of trips and parties will only escalate in the remaining years of his presidency. Get used to it. There’s only so much time left to enjoy the royal treatment and waste our money.

    @ Nabuqudriuzhur,

    Maybe her parents aren’t bored as much as they are depressed and ashamed that their daughter would behave this way. Also, this GenX mom’s husband is a former police chief… usually not the ‘bad character’ type. Plus, I think her father would likely be a pretty good judge of character based on his profession.

    An ignorant, self-absorbed, yet impressionable teen having her twisted logic validated and enhanced by opportunistic vulture lawyers… what could go wrong? Not sure a judge’s verdict in favor of the parents will alter her current mentality. One can only hope that if she lives long enough, some day she will “get it.”

    Not convinced. It will be no surprise when she is determined to be a faker. If she were truly psychotic and delusional, it would seem that she would have been irate and likely combative when law enforcement tried to arrest her. Remember, part of her delusion was supposedly that she was doing the world a favor. When she was viewed as a criminal and not a martyr, I think she would have gone ballistic.

    Let me guess…. you work for a company that sells oil lamps or battery operated lights. Hahaha.

    I thought kindergarteners were closer to 6 years old. Regardless, NO ONE throughout life gives a card without addressing it to the person. God forbid the parent might have to help them do it with a list from the teacher. I know… why don’t they just put all the valentines in a basket and then pass the basket around? Each child could take out their share of the valentines, e.g., if there are 20 kids in the class, each kid can take out 20 valentines, then pass it on. That would make it even “easier” for the teacher. She did say this process would make it “easier” (for the kids supposedly ~ wink wink). Well, as we all know, “easier” isn’t always better, especially when your job is to teach someone something. I still say it’s also important for the RECIPIENT to see their name on the card, not only for the GIVER to hand it out. A valentine is supposed to be something heartfelt and special. No name = not special.

    I can see both sides of this issue, but why are the children directed to not put their classmates’ names on the cards? This makes no sense to me. If the goal is to include everyone and promote their value, why would you leave the names off the cards? That makes the whole process very impersonal. The only argument I see for this is that the children may not know who the cards go to when they are passing them out and it would avoid a potentially awkward situation. However, if that is the case, this exercise would serve as a good opportunity for them to get to know their classmates better!

    Skippy is right. You must be the one Zappa sang about in “He’s So Gay.”

    Maybe you’ll get a chance to borrow (borrow)

    Can you say, “Manic Episode?”

  • January 22, 2014 at 4:18pm

    Glad you brought this up, Nabuquduriuzhur. Before I read your comment, I was going to do the same. Besides saying that the family belonged to a “right wing group sympathetic to the Nazis,” Oliver never says the name of the group! What kind of editor does that? A poor one, my friends.

    If they’re that offended, why can’t the atheist just ask that the bible be removed from their room during their stay? Oh, but yes…. just seeing it there is SOOOO appalling…. they just can’t stand it… nor can they stand missing out on an opportunity to get attention and create further animosity.
