And yet Coke is not as strong as stomach digestive juices that are already in our stomachs. Digestive juices would also clean toilets, car battery terminals, etc. even better. So Coke doesn’t hurt our stomachs. They’re used to the tough stuff.
Ok. You go ahead and use your stomach acid for cleaning and I'll use Coke. The carbonation irritates the stomach. The stomach cures the irritation the only way it knows how. It adds the only antacid it has. Calcium. Which it gets from the blood. Blood low on calcium replenishes itself from the bones. If it did not do this, muscular and brain function would be impaired. So it does affect the stomach. Stomachs are tough. Bones, not so much.

I LOVE our flag. I think it’s the most beautiful flag I’ve ever seen. I still get teary when I look at it when I say the pledge with my students.

Silly barber – that one has Obama’s face on it!

On the other hand, no animal ever voted for O, so sometimes I like animals better than some humans, too.
In the Bible there is a verse, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him." This tells us that we can ask God for wisdom, and he will give it to us. Is is possible that God will tell us something that is not written in the Bible?

Handle on what level though? Right now, they are with God – I could handle that. Being with God is the ultimate joy and the end of pain and sorrow.
Dying is easy. It’s living here on earth that’s difficult – and it’s here where we remain that God will not give us more than we can handle.
I've often wondered myself, if once saved always saved is true, why wouldn't one that has been "saved" commit suicide as to attain the beatific vision sooner? Not advocating it, but would only seem logical to enter heaven ASAP if one is so certain that is where they are going.
I was thinking almost the same thing…take up a dangerous sport…get a job as a crab fisherman in the Aleutians….start chain smoking….hasten death, don’t postpone it if the after life is so great. Also I wonder why christian funerals are so sad. Seems like they ought to be partys celebrating the one who has passed going to Heaven.
@Huff: Not all Christian funerals are sad. There are many Christian families who bury their loved ones with a "celebration of life" "Opening of Heaven's gates" approach.

That’s the same thing kids say – leave us alone, what you say is old fashioned. This is a new time and we’ll find our way.
Parents try so hard to save their children from heartache – if only our children could learn from our experience. I think God feels the same way about His children, all of whom He loves. If we’ll follow His word, we’ll find joy (maybe not momentary happiness but true long-term joy). But if we have to go off and learn it the hard way, if we’re stubborn, there’s a lot of hard times, pain and/or heartache in store. The Bible was given to us to make each of our lives better, but if we refuse to follow, then we have to go through the consequences of learning for ourselves, too.

I agree. Many, many kids I know at school have been straightened out and given a new chance at self discipline, self respect, respect for others, and goals in life from ROTC.

Nah, that was 2 presidents ago.

We can give you a list of local churches of different kinds and their times of worship.
I can walk to a church in less than two minutes but there will be zero need because what I stated cannot be refuted.

Not to take from this amazingly Texas brave heroine or Kia, but cops do this all the time, and they get attacked and lied about and mocked. I think cops should be paid $35,000 every time they commit a bold and courageous act like this, too. Their lives are on the line every single day.
When they go along with homeland security and violate the Constitution, Yes.
Road checkpoints and the border patrol doing checkpoints. TSA checking for limb balls.

Then I would definitely support you writing your title that way when you open your own news site online.

I would think that if she didn’t know she could “do this,” she shouldn’t have taken the job.

I can’t figure out where in FW that is. Most places I am, I’d be scared out of my mind to stop and open my door because traffic is either so heavy or moving so quickly. Our police are the best – and bravest! My pastor’s son was a FW police officer who pulled over to help protect a woman and her children in their vehicle which had a flat tire. A drunk driver came from behind, hit his vehicle, it erupted in flames, and he was trapped and killed. We’re all positive by his actions, she and her children were saved from that fate. “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” – or a stranger in need.

I’m guessing no – and we’ll not be privy to the party at the bar with all the other libs, congratulating him on what he tweeted. They all think it’s ok to say anything as long you throw a fake apology at us.

My son at 5-years-old was smarter than that! And he makes an amazing Marine.

Hell just froze over. (The occupants appreciate it.) For the very first time, I’m proud of this first lady. I give her, her due.
