Not as hard as it sounds and is quite possible given the same dimensions on older city main gates. That saying goes way back, probably biblical times as it is quoted in the New Testament. Anyways, what was meant here was that for a camel to enter a guarded city`s main gate the camel (riderless of course, duh,lol) would have to crawl through the arch on its knees to get through to other side. This was an advantage to the walled city and to slow down possible marauders who would have had their camels come in on bended knees if they would even dare attempt this. Don`t ask me where I heard this as its been a long time but it is true , that I can vouch for!
I apologize in advance, in case someone finds out that this was meant to slow down marauders at the side gates and NOT the main gates as they would have needed these to be accessable for merchandise to enter the city. If Iam correct then so be it, it has been a long time since I heard this , from an Arabian friend btw, and just weren't sure which gate it could have been after giving it some thought. HO HUM. PAX my friends
I thought I saw a camel walking north towards El Paso.

I suffered with migraines for 30 years. Went to dr. after dr. to no avail. I got a stiff neck one day and went to a chiropractor who took xrays and found my neck all arthritic and instead of the bones curving in the were curving out. He realigned my neck bones and have not had a migraine sense. He said it was from a car accident. I said I was never in a car accident. When I got home I remembered I totaled my car when I was 16. Best wishes to all who suffer. The pain is unbearable.

Heck, when I was growing up black was beautiful. I guess I didn’t get the memo.

This article should be submitted to every small town newspaper in America.
Not that they'd print it. My small town had a pretty good, conservative newspaper, but sadly, it's been infiltrated by lib/progs and ruined. Reading the opinion page used to be the highlight of my day. Now I wouldn't use it for toilet paper.

I for one can not read hearts. With that being said I find Ted’s faith to be genuine based on his actions. You have to have faith to stand up and fight for righteousness against the odds.
Huckabee, I’ll just say for me, his wanting to rename common core is to deceive all of us. Also his Wife thinks she’s pretty special now, I can’t imagine what she will think of herself in the Whitehouse. Google her traffic stop and seeing for yourself. Huckabee is a progressive/communist and that just doesn’t jive with everyonel being created equal.
Actually, the mayor is a Republican and refusing to apologize.
Guess it's time for a new theory. ; )
This definitely isn't the last we are going to hear about this lady because she can't admit that she's a poor parent who made some bad decisions trying to protect her son at a party he shouldn't have been at.
That was hilarious! Open mouth, insert foot and you got served! Maybe do a little research before spouting off next time dummy
I didn't assume the apology was by memo alone.
She left with a letter of apology (much more formal than a "memo"), but wouldn't you assume that they apologized to her personally and then put their apology in writing so she would have the evidence that she was both wrongfully arrested and that they had apologized?

No she’s been trolling right wing radio. They are talking about how Bill would reach across the aisle and she isn’t politically savvy enough and never accomplished a thing in her political career. Here she talks about those 2 very points.

My thoughts exactly.

The thug left the situation vertically.
How does that make for a satisfying video?

From the White house to the old house. Hopefully the next stop is the big house.
