I certainly don’t know better; I trust in the work done by those who actually do. Of which, Bialik is not one of them.
I’m critical because she doesn’t study vaccines, disagrees with all published studies on them, and has the star power to convince less educated people to take the risk of not vaccinating their kids.
So, why are you an anti-vaxxer?
Agreed 100%. Couldn't say it better

Jeff needs a good catechism class and a stiff shot of proper spiritual direction. Where’s Padre Pio when we need him? (I say we because frankly, I could use the same!)

Your ignorance is laughable.
A real, genuine argument is too much to ask? I mean, really. First the ‘only one way and that’s through Jesus’ (to Whom do you suppose the Blessed Mother intercedes? Joe the Plumber? Her Son. (I certainly hope you remember that you are forbidden to pray for anyone, nor may you ask for their prayers, lest you behave hypocritically.)
Further, the Church Fathers, the apostles, and the earliest writings of the Church, the historical record of Christianity, shows just how very wrong you are.
No doubt your esteemed pastor learned that Osiris bit at seminary, and you parrot it back at every opportunity like a trained monkey, regardless of the logic of the matter. I suppose Christ fell from Heaven, somewhat like the KJV?
You couldn’t accurately elaborate on one teaching of the Church, and yet you feel secure mocking, judging, and denigrating.
And they mock Catholics for not thinking for themselves… Lol.
'First the 'only one way and that’s through Jesus'
John 14:6 Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'
1 Timothy 2:5 'For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.'
'You are forbidden to pray for anyone, nor may you ask for their prayers'
The living are to pray for the living...not to or for the dead...
"Afflictions to Idolaters"
Isaiah 8:19 'When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?'
@theg So your interpretation is infallible? Why can't a protestant answer that one simple question? Any takers? I have a pretty good guess as to why not.
@Gita -- is yours?

Amen Dudley. We’ve done that on several occasions, should do it again. We’ll be a month behind, but we’ll stand with you.

If the morning after pill prevents implantation of a fertilized egg, it absolutely causes abortion. Abortion is the death of unborn offspring, be it human, bovine, equine, intentional, accidental (though accidental/unintentional has been termed differently in recent years to differentiate) or anything else. A fertilized egg has spontaneous growth and requires only the nutrition and oxygen provided by the placenta. Its blood supply, etc. develops separately from the mother.
It is absolutely abortifacient. Any argument to the contrary is in spite of the facts.

I’m in a similar situation, RO issued yesterday, and I don’t leave the house without my ‘noisy cricket’ on my person. How does it happen? ‘Men’ lie. Not that women don’t, but women rarely stalk/threaten/kill their ex boyfriends. It starts great, grand, and wonderful, (in my case, I knew him from small town high school, was a clean cut, hardworking kid) and about the time you let your guard down, **** gets real and you’re in hiding,wondering when, where, how, and at what price, you’ll ‘pay’ for ‘this’. Not all scumbags have rap sheets.
Most men rarely stalk/threaten/kill their ex-girlfriends, sociopaths and control freaks do regardless of gender. Stay safe and definitely keep that hog leg on your person and accessible. Your in my Prayers for peace and safety.
Rockapine- I am praying for your safety and Gods mighty protection over you.

Seriously!? Yes, your body makes milk every couple hours-provided it’s removed on a regular basis. When it’s not removed, production slows. Some are very sensitive to interruption and every drop is precious.
It’s one thing to BE that incredibly ignorant about basic anatomical function, but to advertise it to the world is an entirely new level of ‘stoopid’.

Silly IP. Christians don’t get to claim religious persecution.
Haven’t you been paying attention?

Now, in the the spirit of defending the defenseless, Simmental are good cows. Crossed with a red angus, you’ll get one of the best beef steers you can get your mitts on.
Please don’t besmirch their reputation with a comparison to the Hilldebeast!

You’ve never been close to a woman whose husband had a porn addiction, obviously.
And you've never been married to a woman that refuses to put out regularly, but still expects you to stay faithful...this cuts both ways.
Luckily, my wife still puts out at least 5 times a week, so my browser history is clear...if that ever changes, though, I make no promises
You're both wrong she shouldn't refuse to put out but you shouldn't turn to porn either
Please explain porn addiction because my copy of the latest DSM doesn't have any references to it.

Bull. I would use a stronger term but no doubt the asterisks would negate it anyway.
It’s prejudice. Plain and simple. Unless you are really going to argue that only whites are capable of prejudice?
Reverse prejudice is favoritism.

Oh, Snowleopard, you and I both know he has no idea what’s going on. He’ll read about it the paper, just like everybody else.

He's not as incomcompetent as he looks:he's a traitor whose fundamental transformation of the country means losing wars to cowardly barbarians-not frying their raggedy rusty butts in the summer sun.

The dog was on HIS turf.
HIS people-his GIRL- were nearby.
A strange man-Officer *******-was approaching, likely with defensive (read:threatening, to a dog) posture.
Dog did what HE perceived as his HISjob: protecting his family.
Mom was trying to get dog in the house.
Do you not know how to read? Or are you just desperate to be right that, damn the facts, you’ll make up your own?
 July 16, 2014 at 2:06pm
I’m inclined to agree with you, although I think you’re not *quite* giving credit where it’s due-hitting a target offhand at 200 yards isn’t a cakewalk. But, your general sentiment is why I much prefer black powder (muzzle loaders) and archery, above all.
It’s pretty much impossible to be cavalier about sneaking up on a bull elk at 25 yards, know he’s pissed about an intruder sneaking in on his girls, and still be collected enough to make an accurate shot. (And no, I’ve never been in a blind or a tree stand, ever.)
All that aside, I’d still prefer a nice hunk of steer over an elk, but budgets being what they are, beef is d@mned expensive. May as well enjoy the process of obtaining food as not, right?

Hey Wagman, your ignorance is showing.
A little research on the difference between canon law and tradition, and then YOU won’t sound like a wacko,
 June 23, 2014 at 9:53pm
Really? I guess I’m doing it wrong then, because my Max student loan amount will cover about six months of rent at $300 a month, and my wifi (cheaper to do distance than on-campus classes) after I pay for books.
Groceries, utilities, and gas money/insurance come out of my measly child support of $300 a month, and oh, yeah, there ARE no jobs available here if you don’t have a degree, so I’m borrowing-with interest- from my sainted mother to cover the rest.
And I *dare* you to accuse me of being a typical welfare mom. I lost my house and my substantial savings when Cargill bought out my company two years ago. I’m driving a 20 year old car and living in a house with no insulation, in north Idaho, where -20 is common, and I’m pursuing a BS in accounting, because 16 years of experience in the field means nothing if you don’t have a piece of paper saying you can add 2+2 and pay bills on time.
You’re running your mouth about something you know nothing about. Better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove the point.
I hope it works out for you. I am proof that even if you do have the "piece of paper" in accounting, it doesn't necessarily mean anything.
I dare to call you a typical welfare mom. "Welfare mothers make better lovers."
Now that's done. I get it from your point of view, you are doing everything you can. The reality is you are justifying taking out money you dont really need.
Will it be harder to live without it? Sure. But think about this, when did you act when you had no strength left to act? When you needed to survive or have your kids survive. I'm calling your bluff. Term Limits For College is right. I can pick 50-100 people in my area who cry boo hoo and take out 3-5k loans for their petty Bachelors degree and foam at the mouth the moment someone asks how their going to pay it back. But I can count on one hand, the ones who reluctantly take out a grant and/or work study to pay and then earn their money for the rest. No extra cash in their pocket, and they cant WAIT to have it paid off ASAP.
Yes, even if you had 25 years experience, a piece of paper is required mostly UNLESS you have a reputation within the area then usually there is exceptions IF you are exceptional. Perhaps its time to stop being less defensive and more wowing people over your calmness in stressful enviorments and a across the board customer service attitude that leaves people maybe not remembering your name but remembering how you feel.
I understand you had hardships, I understand you had loss and disappointments. Maybe its time to brush off, say :"well, that sucked" and move on. Become an inspiration and not a f
Respectfully, MachIV, if you can't do anything with your degree, that says more about you than it does your degree. Either you didn't get a worthwhile degree or you're not good at your job. Regardless of which, it's your fault. No amount of college guarantees you anything. It's what you do with it. It seems you've failed.
Don't listen to these guys, Rockapine. By the time you're done with your degree and have paid off your loans, they'll still be per-hour tyrants at some retail establishment or services company. Keep it going, stay focused, and I promise you one day, you're going to look back and laugh at what you had to go through to get there. Most important of all, you're being a remarkable example to your kids.
Rockapine, on your next loan application, indicate that you were born in Kenya or that you are Native American Indian.
If that doesn't work, move to North Dakota or Texas.
@zorro: Perhaps if you would pay attention to what your reading, you would see I mentioned my background was also in Accounting, and specificially pointed that out elsewhere in this same thread. Having said that, Accounting isn't exactly in theory useless like African Studies, underwater basket weaving, and a host of other useless degrees that people foolishly waste money on. For your information, @asshole, I did not screw off in college. I studied my rear end off and managed to complete the degree under difficult circumstances(medical problem), but in spite of my best efforts it did not pay off. I did the best I could under the circumstances. PERIOD. If you have a problem with that, then shove it up a dark place.
I was right then. Your degree is not the issue, it's you.
Precisely the kind of response I expected.............no substance.

In this instance, ‘Francis’ does not need excommunicate anyone. Biden HAS excommunicated himself, as has Pelosi, et al., by offering continued support for abortion, among other things.
You don’t get a signed piece of paper in the mail saying congratulations, you’re excommunicated. Anyone who separates themselves from the Church via support of abortion is excommunicated a jure, latae sententiae (by law, by reason of the offense itself).
It would be nice of the bishops in each of the respective diocese would come out and clarify, but with all the willful ignorance that surrounds the Church, I doubt it would do much good.
There are other circumstances in which excommunication is the consequence, but for this particular case, that is the easiest example.

Alky, I’m curious. What, exactly, is this “assault” rifle you speak of? What sort of action does it have? How, exactly, does it “assault”?
What characteristic does it have that makes it uniquely different and capable of such assault? Does it have an irrational fear of certain classes of people, or inanimate objects?
