Next book should be: “A Christian Brain Trapped in an Atheist Body”. Do you think they would read that one?

She was so grossed out by it that she was retching in the bathroom, yet picked the thing up and out of the sink, carried it to the table where she had her BigMac box and placed it on the box to take a picture of it? The story does not fully add up.
My son got a fly in a Subway sandwich once. These things happen all the time. He swore to never eat at Subway again. Guess where he ate last week? Subway!!!!
No ill intent, no one injured or dead. Suck up the disgust, share an interesting story and move on with your life.
Focus on the importance of Marriage, eating together as a family, No sex out of wedlock…

ckozzy: you can only shed a “Live” vaccine, which there are not many of anymore (measles and rotavirus are the only current childhood ones). A non-live vaccine cannot be shed.
scarletworm: For your information, there are only some of the influenza vaccines (not all) and one brand of Dtap that have “Trace” thimerasol. No other childhood vaccines have this preservative anymore. And if you look at the history of the vaccines, a majority never even had it in there to begin with. FYI to all, thimerasol and mercury are not the same thing.
Oldmantex: Your theory of vaccinated children spread the disease as much as unvaccinated children if severely flawed. Yes we all have potential to spread disease, but a vaccinated child has a pre built army to fight it off if they come in contact with it, therefore, they are less likely to spread the disease as it is already being fought. An un-vaccinated child does not have this army, therefore will spread more of the disease, even if they do not develop symptoms.

Mastice: “stop fear mongering. If your child is vaccinated against a disease then their risk of catching that disease is exponentially lower than the child who is not vaccinated.”
You have said that vaccines are not 100% effective. Studies show that the Pertussis vaccine is 98% effective and decreases to 70% effective after 5 years, thus the need for boostering.
So, you are telling me to stop the fear mongering, when I can have my child 98% protected, but then admit that by having others not vaccinated and around my child it will only increase my childs vulnerability to the illness.
Answer this, If your child can ride in the car with you and you are 98% sure that your child will not die, but I offer to take your child in my car, given that I can only guarantee that they will only have a 80% chance that they will not die, because I never did get my license. Will you let them ride with me?

Mastice: “Worry about yourself and your kids. Let others do the same.”
That sounds wonderful when you say it, but reality does not always work that simply, as we live in communities. If I am to only worry about my kids, then I have to worry about what yours can do to them as well. If your kids are not vaccinated (I know they are, because you posted that they are) and attend the same school as mine, how do I protect my kids without involving your kids un-vaccinated status in the equation? I can’t. The real question here is, how do we protect a parents right to refuse vaccines at the same time we protect the right of a parent to send their child into a safe school environment? There must be a compromise of both parents rights, or there must be segregation (a school for vaccinated and a school for un-vaccinated) which will allow each parents to have their rights fully protected.

“Malia Obama has not had to carry an inhaler since before the family moved to the White House.”
If this is true, than Climate Change has improved!!! The fact that Malia has not had to use her inhaler like she did years ago is proof that what we are doing is already working and we do not need to push for further regulations. Well, unless we need to regulate the amount of pollen plants are releasing, so Malia doesn’t have to monitor her allergies any more.

Isn’t it ironic that we fled Britain to obtain religious freedom, now Britain supports religious freedom more than us?

They just need to move it to the neighbors yard for 14 days, then the next neighbor and keep rotating it around the neighborhood.
Love this idea! Someone should also talk to the city council...one man's trash another man's castle!
Took my thunder, rx4nv!
They might want to paint or lacquer it to maintain it's integrity to make sure it stays around longer than the gubment dweebs would prefer, and like one said, even add to it for more fun and "screw you" impact. Good way to thumb the nose at those idiots when the whole neighborhood's individual households take their 14 day turn at displaying it in their front yards.
Kids used to build three story wooden forts with new home construction scrap.
Play "cowboys or war" with cap guns Play dodge-ball at school. Walk to school[both ways]
Eat an edible school lunch that contained more than 600 calories. And be able to read and write the English language and do arithmetic before leaving the sixth grade.
Then Marxists took over the schools, city government, and homeowners associations.
We used to shoot arrows straight up, stand there and watch them until they tipped over and then run like hell to get out from under them.
I guess they'd send out the swat team if we tried that today.
They should paint it to look like a plastic one from a store, the idiots wouldn't know the difference.

Tango: I totally agree. You do not need the baker to put the cheesy figurines on top of a cake. I didn’t go into the bakery for my wedding cake and say “I need a cake for my heterosexual wedding”. I simply ordered a wedding cake. No one asked if it was for a gay or straight wedding. Sometimes people offer more information than needed (this is not having to hide) just to get a reaction.

If I own a gun shop and someone comes in to get a gun and mentions that the purpose of purchasing the gun is to intimidate/threaten his daughter’s boyfriend, I have a right to refuse to sell that gun. Now, if the guy comes in and simply wants to buy a gun and fills out all the proper paperwork and passes the background check, I sell him the gun. If he uses it to threaten the boyfriend, I am not involved, because I knew nothing. Why don’t these gay couples simply order the cake or pizza, not touting that it is for a gay marriage? I know, after having worked in a bakery, that you do not have to have the name of the bride and groom on the order before anyone will make the cake. They just need someones name that is responsible for paying and a name so the delivery driver can ask “Is this the Hansen wedding?” I’ll tell you why they don’t do this: They are looking for conflict, a fight, a reason to stick it to the Christians and their fight to follow their God’s commandments!!! This is a controversy, because they want it to be.

So the White House is upset that Netanyahu backed away from previous agreements? Is this not what the Republicans are trying to prevent in their letter to Iran? If Obama agrees to a deal, but then the next president doesn’t want to follow, he can back out just as easily as Netanyahu has. Now, if congress approves the deal and signs off, then the next president cannot back off without going through congress as well. You can’t have it both ways. Then again, it doesn’t surprise me how hypocritical this administration is.

I’m sorry you live in such a paranoid world. Am I missing something? or should I be wearing body mounted camera when I use my credit card at the grocery store to document it, just in case my identity is stolen? I mean, when I use it, they ask for ID, isn’t that harassment? I’m not doing anything illegal.
100% Nothing illegal. 100% No harassment. 100% this guy is a jerk.

I would love to see one post where I have not shown my support for open carry. I support it 100%. I have friends that open carry. I don’t know what posts you have been reading. I agree with you 100% that this guy did nothing illegal.
Now read carefully: I do not agree that this man was harassed by the cops. We can disagree on this and still agree on the right to open carry. What I disagree with as well is that this guy is a punk. But we can still agree on the right to open carry. Our last exchange was when the gentleman entered the police station with cameras rolling and looking for a confrontation. This guy is doing the same thing. I would feel totally different if the guy had been walking along with out a body mounted camera and as things unfolded, he pulled out his phone and recorded them. The body mounted camera while out for a “stroll” is a little hard to believe he was not hoping for a confrontation, which he initiated in the school parking lot because he didn’t get the fireworks when the first cop stopped.

I never said someone’s right to feel safe trumped anyone’s right to own a gun. You are right, some people feel unsafe with a mouse in a cage. I get that. But some laws do protect feelings. If I feel my life is in danger, I have the right to protect it. I get that the man did nothing illegal. We agree on those points. Were the issue seems to be is that as a citizen of the community, I have the right to ask myself “why is he walking toward a school with a rifle?” I also have the right to feel that a man walking toward a school, where my kid is, with a rifle might not be a good idea. As legal as it is for the man to do this, I still have the right to feel this way. I have the right to call my local police department and say “hey look, there is a man walking toward the school with a rifle. I don’t know if he is up to no good or not, but you may want to check it out”. The police have the right to investigate and make sure everything is good. The man has the right to carry his gun. The man has the right to walk along the street if he desires. The man has the right to decline answering the officers. The officers have the right to monitor the man. You see everyone has rights, not just this man. No ones rights have been violated in this video. The man and you may think the cops were harassing him, that is your right to think that. I don’t think they were, that is my right to believe that. But just because you think that, does not mean you are right.

I agree that you enter a contract when you buy a ticket to a movie, that is my point. When you purchase a gun, you also enter into an unwritten contract. That contract is that you will use wisdom and common sense while owning this gun in order to protect the safety of those around you. People fail to understand that just because you have the RIGHT to do something (own a gun), does not mean it doesn’t come with responsibility. If one of your rights infringes on one of my rights, who wins? You have the right to say what you want, but I also have the right to not be slandered. You see sometimes rights have to compromise. Your right to own a gun and my right to feel safe in the streets. You act responsibly with your gun, I feel safe.

Your attitude seems to be “I can do whatever I want, because I have the right to do whatever I want whenever I want”. And I’m the progressive? President Obama thinks like you do. Conservatives respect others rights. I have the right to own and carry a gun. I also understand the right you have to feel safe. If a cop approaches me about my gun because someone else’s right to feel safe is taken away because of the presence of my gun. I now understand that two peoples rights are now in conflict. I don’t get defensive and force the other person to have to abandon their right to feel safe. No, you engage in a dialogue. As you COMMUNICATE, the other person’s fear subsides and their rights are no longer violated. And I still maintain my right to carry my gun. You see both people can maintain their rights. You just can’t be a jerk, you live in a society where you are not the only one, you have to be civil. That is what a conservative would do!!!

First of all, you cannot extend my defense of the officers to anyone, because my plumber down the street has not been given the same training nor authority the police officers have. Similarly, I would not hire the police officers to come fix my toilet.
If I was a cop or a citizen and was in a location that anyone put their hand on a fire arm, I would have every right to heighten my awareness that danger may be approaching. Anyone well trained in firearms would be foolish to think otherwise, however, they are also less likely to initiate the drawing and firing of the weapon. As you noticed, the cop had his hand on his gun. Did he ever undo the clip? NO. Did he remove it? NO. Was he ready if need be? YES. Did he have a right to be ready to protect himself? YES. Did the guy with the rifle and yourself make many ASSUMPTIONS about getting shot if he did it? YES. Does he have the right to do that? Sure. The cop did, that’s why he had his hand ready if needed. We all make assumptions every day.
I say “cop hating” because there is no better term to explain why someone would be so offended that an officer would have the nerve to ask what the guy was up to. If you did not hate cops and their authority, you would have no reason to not engage in a friendly conversation.
