    I LOVE that video!!!

    “Everybody knows if the police have to come get you, they’re bringing an @$$-kicking with them!”

    Ruh, roh. It sounds like that mom needed to have a little chat with her son about how to handle police confrontations. Chris Rock even produced a very helpful PSA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uj0mtxXEGE8

    Another reason I miss Utah – if I were there, I’d be voting for her in a heartbeat! Go Mia!!!

    And to protect the couch.

    My mom and I love going to the local country bar to learn country dancing, and we aren’t butch or fat! We don’t drink either, but that’s beside the point.

    Yep – my sister went on Study Abroad to Paris. She said she could tell when winter was coming on because there were fewer boobs in all the advertisements on the subway. On the other hand, Europeans this Americans are horridly violent. It amuses me to no end how differently we see things on either side of the Atlantic!

    Yeah, I know, Eastinfection. I’m married to a guy. I get glimpses every so often into how boys think (it’s generally disturbing). I’m actually not a fan of bikinis. I think they show a wee bit too much skin. I’m still scarred from my 17th birthday when this really fat drunk chick jumped her way out of her lime green bikini during a Journey concert and DIDN’T REALIZE IT because she was so wasted. All of the rest of us realized it (my dad was torn between looking away in horror and giggling hysterically). And that was 15 years ago.

    My suggestion was a softening of what she was wanting to do. Naked on purpose? Not great. Want to show kids that women come in all shapes and sizes, and that’s okay too? Have a nice day at the beach and everyone have fun and smile and don’t fret about what you look like constantly – yay!

    Neither. Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon is a record of God’s dealings with His children. It is a record of the love and the tragedy of families. It is a history of the rise and fall of nations. It is a recounting of wars. It is a warning against pride, greed, envy, and rebellion against God. It is one of the most sophisticated arguments against moral relativism and “survival of the fittest” that can be read today. It contains parable, allegory, middle eastern poetry, imagery, and repeated symbolism. It stands as the second witness of Jesus Christ, as the Savior Himself commanded, when He said that “out of the mouths of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.” It is a demonstration of the love of a God for His other sheep, those on the other side of the world from Jerusalem. It is proof that the heavens are not closed and that God’s work of salvation is not yet finished.

    Like the Bible, the Book of Mormon is often mocked and considered “fiction,” “fantasy,” or the ramblings of a deranged mind. But the Savior Himself was likewise judged to be a Man of no worth, so why should testaments of Him be received any differently? But when I first read this book – which was different than any other – I discovered that it was indeed the word of God, and I couldn’t deny it.

    StevenRichards, you need to stop fixating on other people’s underwear. Most of us got out of that habit by first grade.

    I’m a Christian; a Catholic by birth, raising, and much practice (I even went to church every Sunday and was an altar server growing up), and I have to disagree with you. I’ve read the Book of Mormon many times.

    I’m also a scripture reading, hymn-singing, fasting, praying, Gospel-sharing, Bible-believing, Book-of-Mormon-believing Mormon!

    Uncle Remus Tales – I’m not sure I’ve ever read those. But those DO make me think of the “Uncle Wiggly” stories my mom read to me and my sister when we were little girls. Oh, those were so fun!

    Mewnani – have you read the Bible? Christ spoke through prophets before His birth and after. Prophets have spoken to the earth in every age. (See Amos 3:7). That’s how God has always communicated with His children. He’s not changeable.

    In the Old Testament, the prophet Elijah was given power by God to raise the son of the widow of Zarephath from the dead (Kings Chapter 17:17-23). And in Matthew 10:8, Christ gave His 12 Apostles the power to raise the dead – HIS power.

    The Book of Mormon is #1 the most important and most influential book I have ever read or ever will read. And this coming from a Catholic girl! (Who is now a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.)

    Did you know that Orson Scott Card is a religious guy? One of my best friends in high school was somewhat of a “searcher of truth” but really disliked Christians – especially Mormons – but one of his favorite books was “Ender’s Game.” I always wondered if he knew Orson Scott Card was a Mormon.

    Okay, you TOTALLY just made me think of “Good Naked” vs “Bad Naked” – that was such a funny “Seinfeld” episode!!!

    While I am more prudish that I was as a child, I don’t think it is a hugely big deal if a little kid accidentally sees his mom naked once or twice. I see where she’s coming from on this one. Maybe I’d be more apt to say “Hey, why not all wash the car together and you can wear a bikini!”, but still – it would be nice if boys didn’t grow up thinking photoshopped models were the definition of female beauty and perfection.

    64FNORD, your comment had me laughing out loud!

    Me, too! My little niece would watch that show (her Pop Pop found it and bought her the DVD) and I think the adults were even more fascinated than the children. My favorite episode was when the sheep decided to fool the farmer out of his hot bath. Great stuff!

    How terribly sad for their families. It was hard enough serving a mission, hoping that I would be safely home in 18 months, and for my family having me away and only getting letters once a week. But hugging goodbye and not realizing it was going to be for the last time? I can’t imagine the sorrow those moms, dads, brothers/sisters, and friends must be feeling. Faith in Jesus Christ certainly helps, but the heart hurts even so.

  • [1] August 20, 2014 at 9:28pm

    Oops. It’s her second! But it’s anything but “opossum-like.”

    I’m calling BS on this one. This woman met the standards to become an officer of the law, and she wants to work. She pulled her own weight (no pun intended) until she physically could not, with only one month to go until she gave birth! And instead of lolling about, she wants to continue to contribute to her company. She already has to use every scrap of time off/vacation to make ends meet during her maternity leave – FMLA is a nice suggestion, but it isn’t right when light duty is what should be offered.

    I shared this with my husband, who is a law enforcement officer. He was shocked that she wasn’t given light duty. At his place of employment, men are routinely given light duty for accidents incurred on their ATVs, snow mobiles, motorcycles, and other toys when off work. They are also given light duty for any type of injury incurred because they are overweight! She is being discriminated against and no two ways about it.
