    Plenty – Do you advocate following the lead of the ISIS terrorists and blowing up all artwork, both ancient and modern that are images of “pagan gods”? This kind of rant is what turns people away from “religion”. I would also remind you that our founding fathers were given “classical” educations and were very knowledgeable about ancient religions and ideas. They did not fear classical artwork or mythology and they managed to establish our nation on Judeo-Christian principles which have served us well for all these years. Don’t step over the line into the extreme. We see what the end result of that is every day in news from the Middle East.

    fatpolice – Oops! See my reply above! Really need that cup of coffee!

    Fatpolice – Thanks. . You are correct. And Satan is the great deceiver. My favorite verse is “I am come so that you might have LIFE, and that in abundance”.
    Now for some sunshine, coffee, and hugs and kisses from my grandbabies!

    4truth – If my comments have been in error in my response to you, I humbly apologize and ask your forgiveness. I am having a very hard time dealing with some of the comments here that glorify suffering and death as being Gods will. This point of view is easy when you do not feel personally threatened. It is MUCH harder when your innocent family members are living in harms way. No one is going to convince me that a loving God wants innocent children to suffer or die. I know that this does happen, but it’s because MEN commit murder and folly and God lets us roast in the fires we set ourselves.
    Again, I apologize if I misinterpreted your statement. I’m going to go have a cup of coffee and sit in the sunshine for a few minutes. God bless….

    Emmy917 – How very smug of you. I’ll be sure to tell my dying children that their suffering is “for Christs sake”. I don’t worship a God that wants innocents to die so that one man can “receive the greater portion”.
    It’s really hard not to give in to anger at folks like you who stand far away and condemn those who will suffer. Your platitudes are of no comfort.

    4truth – this verse speaks of laying down your own life, not taking others lives with you! Sacrifice your own life for your beliefs if you will. Causing harm to innocents by ones actions is not in this verse.
    If people die from this, it will not fall under the realm of losing your life for Christ, which is the intent of the second verse you quoted. I don’t believe that our deaths from this awful disease would advance the cause of Christianity at all. Quite the contrary this may turn many against missionaries working in such places at all. Many unexpected consequences of these decisions…..

    Patriot-Momma – Thank you. I wholeheartedly agree.

    4truth2all – Why is that? Would you refuse to treat him? Something worse? Are you sure that’s what your God would want you to do?

    I think the relevant point in this whole debate is not whether this man is a saint or a sinner. The sticking point is that he has allowed himself to bring a terrible threat to his home country. We can all understand that his wife and family love him, of course they do! I don’t fault them for wanting him to be close and to get the best medical care possible. But, the consequences of ONE mistake by staff at this hospital can bring death and horror to millions. As someone who lives close to ground zero, I have been looking into my grandchildren’s faces and wondering how I could bear to see them vomiting blood and wracked with pain. Having spent a number of years in the medical world, I KNOW that doctors and “specialists” are not invincible and can make catastrophic errors. The potential of a mistake here is terrifying.
    It’s easy to ridicule and scorn people who are fearful when you yourself are far from the situation. If you feel called by god to risk your life, then by all means do so! But, I do not believe that anyone is called by god to risk the lives of others this way. Man’s technology often fails. So, go ahead, and call me a coward, question my sanity, infer that I don’t have enough faith, Whatever… but please also look at your family and put yourself in my shoes for a minute. Thanks.

    Did anybody notice the person in the contagion suit to the left in the video? The Dr is getting out of the ambulance and the first thing the guy on the left does is back away from the ambulance. Of course there is the supremely confident person who helps the Dr out and walks with him into the hospital (nerves of steel), but I find it telling that at least one person involved in this lunacy was worried about being too close. All it would take is ONE SMALL TEAR in those suits……

    Sarge – I worked for years in the medical world and you are exactly correct in understanding how the “medical experts” think. They do not admit they can be wrong. I remember an old saying from my mothers time, “Doctors bury their mistakes”. It’s no less true today than in her time.
    Just saw a report on CNN that said that the sick doctor, now a patient at Emory Hospital has been allowed to see his family. I desperately hope it was through a thick glass window.

    I wrote to Samaritans Purse begging them to not expose all of us here to this awful disease. They didn’t even bother to reply to my message. I live 85 miles from Atlanta and have many friends there. I won’t be going to Atlanta at all for a while. Of course, many hundreds of people from my area commute to Atlanta every day for work. And school is starting soon.
    I don’t believe this dr is a hero. The arrogance of these doctors and the CDC is insane. They seem to believe that technology will save them and us from this hideous disease. The most insane quote I have heard is from one of the TV docs who said that in the event of an outbreak, we could quickly contain it. He didn’t seem to care that there would still be dead and suffering people who would not be sick if not for them allowing this disease to come here in the first place.
    Hubris indeed.

    Okay, THIS is another reason why we should not be bringing infected people to this country…

    But, we shouldn’t be worried because it’s actually not easy to catch… right?

  • August 1, 2014 at 10:13am

    Oh we questioned it all right…. just didn’t get any answers. The zombie thing was all in fun, right?
    Never underestimate the arrogance of the CDC. They have it “all under control”.

    Is anybody else worried about the “health officials” who are assuring us that we will be perfectly safe and that this terror is “not very contagious” and all the bull s&%t being spewed as they bring this deadly disease here? They are lying through their teeth about this! Why!!! If Mr. Graham is so anxious to get his people “home” why don’t they take them to North Carolina! Preferably to his house!
    I live 85 miles from Atlanta. Hundreds of people commute from here to jobs there. I have three grandchildren who will be in public schools in a few weeks (not by my choice) and I admit this scares me. I have worked in hospitals and I am telling you, there is NO WAY everyone keeps medical protocols. In my opinion, this is the equivalent of a ‘dirty bomb’ coming to the city of Atlanta. The arrogance of the ‘medical professionals’ about this is simply breathtaking.

    JohnofTexas – When I was a child in school we learned the differences between the U.S. and communist China and Russia. I remember clearly the pride on my teachers face when she told us that in America, we do not raid people’s homes in the middle of the night and take them away for ‘crimes’. Everyone is assumed to be innocent until they have been proven guilty. My…. how things have changed
    Our country has been “fundamentally transformed”. And almost half of the population is just fine with it. A good part of the other half is too busy working to pay bills and taxes to be able to do anything about it.

    I’ve watched and listened to Glenn since his CNN days. He was fired up, and seemed to have inside information. He also had the will and bravery to get that information out to the people. It seemed to me that Glenn believed that if he could only let people know what was coming, and what was happening to cause it, that Americans would stand up and defend their country. However, that hasn’t happened. Just under half of the people here WANT big government and don’t mind tyranny and corruption as long as it doesn’t directly affect them personally. I think Glenn is losing hope and has turned to religion for comfort. I know how he feels. Whether we like it or not, this country will never be the same again. And that’s a damn shame.

    Hi RJJ , I also remember being a kid and having free reign to wander the neighborhood with my friends, and also walking a mile to school every day. But back then there weren’t predators watching and waiting the chance to snatch us up to use as victims for Youtube videos. Pedophiles and murderers have rights these days, victims do not. I have three precious grandchildren. Someone has to be standing outside waiting for them to board or get off their school bus every day, school board rules. There are literally hundreds of registered sex offenders in our area. HUNDREDS! When society decides to stop tolerating sexual predators, specifically those that prey on children, and puts them away for life, then maybe we can give our grandchildren the right to be outside and safe. As I write this, law enforcement is searching for a predator that attempted to snatch a young child less than a mile away from where my grandchildren live. She got away and gave a good description of him.

    Okay, I guess I’m having a ‘senior day’ today, but I just can’t figure out how you can get on a DHS list from using cash unless the store owner already knows you personally and turns you in. I hate to let my ignorance become public, but somebody please enlighten me!

  • [5] June 28, 2014 at 9:59am

    Use the “shopper” cards to purchase meat and veggies. Pay cash for everything else. You still save money and Big Brother doesn’t know jack about your real eating habits.
    The scheme at the grocery store where I shop is getting a % off the total cost AND then getting 10 to 20 cents off each gallon of gas if you fill up in their gas station. The % off the food is enticing, but the money saved on the gas is irresistible.
