    As for me: Lived with PC all my life, changed to Mac this year, will never go back to PC.

    Why does everyone have to assume that what everyone else does is done in malice and with intent to send a specific message?

    My wife is amazed at how much I listen to music on the radio and don’t know the words to most of the songs. I like the music and don’t pay attention to the words. Why must we assume that Apple picked this song because of its lyrics and not because the music was perfect for the effect they desired?

    Lighten up people!

    Santa is what YOU make him. Santa will only replace Christ in Christmas if YOU let him. Christ will reign during Christmas and any other day of the year if YOU choose to let Him. I have had 30+ years of Christmas in which Christ was the focus and Santa with his gifts was a fun side show. I think in this case, you can have your cake and eat it too!!! Not everything has to a fight between religion and secularism, they can co-exist.

    Makes sense to me, criticize and infuriate the people you are going to call if you are in trouble. If I was white and a cop in predominantly black neighborhoods, I would fear for my life, re-locate and let them fend for themselves. This is the real life story of chicken little: No one wants to participate in making something good, they want someone else to do it and then let them share in the end product. This country could progress in it’s racial inequality if the black community could just accept more leaders like Ben Carson who teach how to break out of the oppression and make a life for yourself. Get away from the Al Sharptons who only want to teach hate and distrust, thus continuing to enslave the oppressed and not allow them to progress.

    “Even children know churches spew absurdity, which is why they don’t want to attend services.”

    They forgot: Even children know parents and doctors spew absurdity, which is why they don’t want to eat vegetables and exercise.

    Just because a kid doesn’t want to do something, it doesn’t mean they are more enlightened than anyone else. What a lame claim.

    RAPTURE- you don’t need to be a Hebrew wedding scholar to understand the meaning of “nobody knows the day or hour?”. When I was in elementary school, they taught me to read and I learned how understand the context of what I was reading. All you have to do is read the verses in Matthew or one of the other Gospels leading up to this phrase and you will understand that Jesus is answering their question of when will all these things he has spoken of happen. And He is telling them to always live the commandments, because no one knows when the end will come.
    I know you will have some deep understanding of Hebrew weddings consist of a certain fabric woven within the gown and it has a specific number of stitches representing the family status within the socioeconomic structure of the region within the bride’s great grandmas first child’s birth rite. But it will add nothing to the meaning and understanding of the scripture as it is written.

    I hate to say it, but America’s racial divide is getting bigger because of the black leaders like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Eric Holder, Barak Obama who incite hate towards whites. Which is the complete opposite of what they should be doing. I always taught my kids to treat people like you would want to be treated.

    There is usually a solution for everything. It may sound crude and unsympathetic, but if the sole complaint was pain from being unable to express the milk, she had options. I know they do not prohibit one from using the bathroom. While in the privacy of the bathroom stall, a mother could express her own milk into the toilet to relieve the pressure until the next break. I believe we are just not getting the full story. Sometimes we have to make tough decisions in life. Most of the time, no one else can or should be blamed for the decisions you make. We don’t have the right to demand that everyone else accommodate our lifestyle to make our life easier, then cry racism or sexism or suppression of my freedom to do whatever I think I should be able to do if they don’t.

    My feeling is, we are not getting the full story. I bet accommodations would have been made, had there been a discussion before the test and not during the test.

    I get tired of people that knew of problems ahead of time, still going ahead with their plans to encounter these problems, then cry VICTIM. Working in pediatrics, I am an avid supporter of breast feeding. My wife breast fed until each of my kids were 18 months old. I support this woman’s right to breast feed. I also support the rules of the test that are set to make sure every candidate has the same testing environment. If the rules do not allow you to be alone or leave the testing center floor during the 10 minute break to reduce the risk of cheating, then she has no claim to cry Victim. If individuals are allowed to use the bathroom stall privately during these breaks, there is no reason she should not have been able to pump. Too much of a distraction to bring a baby in for feeding, but should be able to pump quickly in the bathroom. As a breast feeding mother and Doctor, she should have had a storage supply at home that could have been used for that 10 hours.

    I just Googled “foremost scholar on Hebraic studies and understanding of THE scriptures” and a pic of THERAPTURCOMES popped up. This guy is legit ; )

    I find it ironic that he states you have to be knowledgeable in Hebrew studies to understand THE scriptures, but then says he takes THE scriptures literally. If THE scriptures can be taken literally, there is no need to understand Hebrew, as the meaning is what is written there and no further understanding is required. So I guess the Holy Ghost is a dove. After-all, THE scriptures say He descended as a dove. I guess Eve actually turned into a person from a rib removed from Adams rib cage.

    Let’s face it, THERAPTURECOMES is a little out there.

    I have to agree. ATHEISM has become the government sponsored religion. The government has sided with forcing people to not practice or preach their religion in favor of having a God free society, which in itself is a religious stance.

    I think more appropriate is: Imagine ruining your life over this career. An NFL career is almost guaranteed to end with a poor life satisfaction.

    You are wrong about them having to stay after work. You are wrong about now seeing 6 less patients. I can tell you do not run a business. Ask those that do run businesses.
    Finally, that was my exact point- the initial claims are that people will not lose jobs, that is wrong!!! The question we should really be answering is do we want 6 working at the current wage, or do we want 5 working at a better wage and one unemployed? This is what the politicians should be asking and should be accountable for. But they are wanting to get away with the claim that we will get all 6 the better wage, which in reality will not likely happen.

    If you think the 5 employed better and one unemployed is the lesser of the evils, that is your choice. As for me, I would like to help 6 people some, but if I had to pay more, I would be content helping 5 more and one unemployed as well. I don’t think there is a wrong side to be on, I just don’t agree with the lie that no one will lose a job and everyone will benefit!!!

  • November 14, 2014 at 2:55pm

    So I guess the honest question here is: Are you better off having 6 people earning some money, or 5 people earning a little more money and one without a job?

    No one goes into overtime in this scenario, because once the office is closed, their work is done. When economic times are good and income is good, companies do hire additional workers to help alleviate some burden on other workers, but when pennies are tight, they are willing to get rid of the additional help and go back to the bare bones. If you don’t believe that, you are fooling yourself.

    Case in point: In a medical office of about 20-25 employees. At any given time, there are 2 receptionists, 3 medical providers, 4 medical assistants (one helping each provider and one answering phone calls), 1 office manager, 1 billing coordinator on the clock. Let’s assume the receptionists make minimum wage, the medical assistants make $3/hr more than minimum wage and the rest are earning well above minimum wage. The office is open 13 hours a day (regular clinic til 5pm, then walk-in clinic til 10pm) for 6 days out of the week. As minimum wage increases by $3/hr, I now have to pay the receptionists about $500 more every 2 weeks ($250 per receptionist). As the medical assistants now realize the receptionists are making the same or more than them, they now ask for a raise as this position has required some additional education and should be paid better than a receptionist that does not. Now I have to pay $3/hr more to the 4 medical assistants. That’s an additional $1000 per pay period (up to $1500 more from my profits, that’s about $40,000/year). What do I do? I fire one of the medical assistants (MA) that is making $1600 a pay period to preserve my $1500 added expenses and actually end up pocketing $100 more per pay period. Can the office survive with one less MA? Yes. I now have the 3 other medical assistants now handle the providers and answer phone calls. If they want the job, they take on the added responsibility, otherwise I put out an ad for someone else.

    Now as for God CONDEMNING Adam and Eve for partaking of the fruit, that is not accurate. Yes, the request by God and the request by Lucifer were basically on equal terms as at that point there was no good or evil. God knew this was the case and knew that at some point they would partake. The whole reason Adam and Eve were sent to the earth was to start God’s great plan that would allow all of us to come to earth, receive a body and if we lived as God wanted, we would return to him. A test of sorts, where only the faithful can return home. When Eve partook of the fruit, they were not condemned, rather they were cut off from God’s presence and therefore, the test began. Now knowing good and evil, they had to make their own choices (to which they were now held accountable) to prove to God they were on His team and worthy of returning to Him. It’s not illogical at all. The “fall” had to happen. God knew it. Lucifer helped set it in motion because his greed and jealousy would not let him sit aside and watch someone follow every one of God’s commandments. This is why in my religion, we do not believe Adam and Eve sinned when they partook, there is no “original sin”. Because you cannot sin if you do not know right from wrong. That is why I can say they were not CONDEMNED, because at that point, they still had not sinned. But the partaking did change the rules of the game, God could no longer walk side by side with them.

    Now, unfortunately, you have man interpreting scriptures in any way they please and some are taking these verses out of context, thus claiming a sexist slant. They do not understand, or choose to not understand the true meaning of those verses. If Adam is doing the will of God and Eve is doing the will of Adam, which is the will of God, then there really is no supremacy. At any time that Adam fails to do the will of God, Eve no longer has any obligation to follow Adams counsel.
