The most likely reason for an ‘Apocalyptic Disaster’ was not given as poll selection. The most likely reason for this disaster would be a global economic and financial meltdown originating from the collapse of the U.S. economy. And yes, this collapse is coming due to the insurmountable amount of U.S. debt.
My thoughts exactly!
I would not expect myself and my husband to survive very long as he is disabled and we are both diabetic on many meds that I presume we would no longer be able to get. I'm no longer able to do the things I used to so hunting, etc would be almost impossible. I don't really spend time worrying about that though I do think it is probable. It will be miserable but that's that way things go. Strong survive, weak and sick don't.
Bevmac there are those of us who know how our ancestors survived without modern medicine. We also have a respect for the elders in the clan that still have support to add to the family unit of it be just cooking and cleaning and nursing.
There are those of us who know how to live off the land who along with our preps may survive the mass exodus of zombies from the concrete jungles.

How dare the police arrest them! The pigs! People should be able to anything and everything they want.

If I was the shift supervisor, I’d find out how fast Rich was traveling and initiate discipline against him. I’d then immediately file a citation against Lewis for that very same speed. He got his video of the sheriff, but it would cost him a stiff fine and points.

Sure Dishevel, let’s get rid of the police. This country would turn into the “Purge” from coast to coast within 24 hours. Except it would be a never ending purge.

The Rams are now in a terrible conundrum. Even if they want to cut Sam, they’ll almost have to keep him. If they cut him outright before the season, they’ll be lambasted by the mainstream as bigots.
Sorry. That was meant for Cataclysm as a joke of course
@Time... yep, he will be the oldest linebacker in the NFL when he retires at the age of 55 because they can't cut the guy no matter how bad he is. Ok to destroy Tim Tebow for his faith(though I do question his skills) while we elevate and celebrate the lifestyle of the 3%... I wonder if the league has mandatory AIDS testing given the amount of blood that gets left on the field.
How DARE Dungy not bow down and offer head to each of the gay communities' demands? Does he not realize he will be cooked alive if he disagrees???
I think Dungy is just a racist.
Oh ... wait ....
OMG, NOT “Jim Crow-era awful.”... What will happen
if they decide to cut him.......OMG,“Jim Crow-era awful.”
Tony Dungy is a GREAT Man and Coach..
What is Sam ?? HUH ????????? Good Grief....
Rush was on this one today.... This is a PR nightmare for the RAMS and the Media sharks know when there's blood in the water.... it's just a matter of time.
Someone of public notoriety makes an honest statement about not drafting an openly gay man due to the circus that follows......que the militant homosexual response.........thank you for proving his point valid. I wouldn't draft him either, he isn't a pro level football player. He won't last 2 seasons unless the now PC NFL keeps him around as a token gay, he'll never contribute anything on the field though.
Nothing wrong with what the coach said. It's an honest concern. It's not personal or judgemental, no condemnation, good for him.
Dungy is nothing but class. His problem is the social elite who do not like it when black men go off of their plantation by telling the unauthorized truth.
He could have been more clear. Something like:
"I wouldn't have picked him partly because of the legal liability. If we cut him because he isn't playing well he could sue claiming we cut him for other reasons. Being gay is no assurance of his skills on the field; any young and relatively untried player is something of a risk. There is no reason to add to that risk; why hire a lawsuit magnet?
Second, there is the fact that the press will spend a lot of time on his personal life and private habits which will take attention away from the action on the field. Lots of players get attention on them as people and personalities... it can be a problem and has been with some other players. He wasn't an obviously great player, and even if he was the downside has to be considered as part of the package. I wouldn't have wanted the hassle he represents.
Being gay shouldn't be that big a deal. Why make a 3 ring circus about it? It should be private, right? A 3 ring circus is not good for the team or the game, especially when it is focused on things not part of the game. I have to consider what's good for the team, and I don't think he is."
Bingo. What a PR nightmare if he doesn't really help the team, and they cut him. Sam's got a roster spot as long as he's healthy. It's the first fully-guaranteed contract in the NFL.
Tony, that statement is 100% true, but a white guy could never have said that. Even you are being treated like garbage for telling the truth.
I for one would like to thank you Tony for your dedication to the game, you are, were and ALWAYS will be one of the best class acts the NFL has had the luck of having.
He would have passed on him because of the pitiful performance at the Combine.
He had a smart Agent that told him to come out the closet, because he would not have been drafted with the performance he turned in, unless he came out and publicly stated he was gay.
He literally forced the hand of the NFL. If he was not drafted then NFL is anti-gay. Now if he is cut, the NFL is Anti-Gay. If he does not Start, the NFL is Anti Gay.
Now, the NFL is not about performance but sexual orientation.
45 roid rage macho types being thrown in a shower with a gay.
They won't be politically correct.
Can somebody explain to me how what he said was even remotely controversial or incorrect. He was asked a question about the player and gave his honest answer. A good part of which relative to what he views the situation and what he would have done. Good for him that his honesty trumps caring what the media thinks.
Tony, never apologize. Now they know they have you on the run, and they'll never stop until you're fired from NBC.
Take a stand, stick with it, let them move on to an easier target.
By the way, you are right, it will be a distraction, and the other players may not take kindly to being shoved into a media circus.
Sams may wish he was never drafted.
But, now the NFL will have to name him MVP even if he warms the bench. It's over in America.

The fact that the Palestinians have representation in the U.N. as a nation, even though there isn’t a Palestinian nation, nor has there ever been one, tells one all they need to know about the U.N.’s position.

Sorry, but there just aren’t any Christians around the world starting wars in the name of Christianity.
TIME, but the US amerikan war machine has started many a war around the world and the US "Christians" goose step to the beat.
I honestly can't believe people are moronic enough to believe religion is the root cause of wars and violence. Hmm, guess all those gang bangers are shooting each other up over their differing religious beliefs.
While religion may be used as a way to demonize those you are at war with, it is very rarely, if ever, the actual cause.
"the US amerikan war machine has started many a war around the world and the US “Christians” goose step to the beat."
Do you include Jews, Muslims, and all other religions in America as "goose steppers?" Or just the Christians?
808, "Do you include Jews, Muslims, and all other religions in America as “goose steppers?” Or just the Christians?"
Not too many muslims agreeing with the US amerikan war machine invading muslim countries so they do not seem to be doing much goose stepping.
Now here comes the "anti-semite" rants by the anti-anti-semite zealots but I am not aware of any synagogues having their veterans stand during services to be thanked for serving the machine.
But so many of the "Christian" churches have a blood lust for worshiping their veterans who "fight for our freedoms".
What do you think the crusades were?
What do you think the crusades were? More wars have been fought in the name of God than anything else combined.
The crusades were centuries ago. I agree with squid. The minute an old belief or viewpoint starts to change, Christianity gets blamed. It's the old Christian white guy's fault. Well then, all of the good things and technological advancements belong to the old Christian white guys too. Blame is an easy thing to pass around. New ideas take time and hard work. The blame resides on the individual priests. Bill Clinton committed a grievous sin. Millions found a way to accept it. Make it ok. Should the church have had their own Nuremberg hearings and strung them up? I didn't know the American war machine is now hanging on Christians too. If so then the Christians get full credit for ridding the world of hitler, Irohito, Mussolini, and the fall of soviet Russia. The crusade argument is like blaming John Boehner for slavery. That's a left wing tactic. My father in law read a dan brown book and stopped going to church. So now we leave the table to go to mass on Christmas Eve without them. He allowed a book and some retards that he worked with at General Motors to convince him to give up time spent celebrating faith with his own grand kids. I think he's just lazy and feeble minded.
Atheists have murdered and imprisoned more people in the 20th century than 1000 years of religious wars.
However, if public school teachers have molested more children than Catholic Priests, and they are often shuffled from one district to another due to Union negotiations. Maybe Tom should also advocate for the dissolution of the Dept of Education, or at least the NEA? No? Hypocrite.
Yes, after several hundred years of Christians being murdered by muslims and muslims taking over entire regions, some christians began fighting back. People should be thankful they finally fought back. Otherwise, we would all be muslims right now. Fighting muslims who kill or force convert is not starting a war, it is called self defense
"Not too many muslims agreeing with the US amerikan war machine invading muslim countries so they do not seem to be doing much goose stepping."
"But so many of the “Christian” churches have a blood lust for worshiping their veterans who “fight for our freedoms”."
Thank you for your clarification and for voicing your opinion that only the Christians are blood thirsty though we certainly don't "worship" our military. We, like many Americans, are grateful that they sacrifice for the freedoms that exist in our country. God Bless you.
They were/are not atheist. They believe and fear.
The biggest misinterpretation here is the assumption that Catholicism equates to Christianity, which it does not.
Gee, the onslaught of persecution comes out of the dark.
Who didn't see it coming?
Not all, but very many wars have been fought for religious reasons.
Those who continue to donate to the catholic church are complicit in their cover up efforts and bare a not so insignificant share of the blame for the ongoing issue.
Many american politicians made speeches alluding to converting Iraqis to christianity to drum up support for the war among vulnerable low information voters.
No atheist leader has ever murdered to further the cause of atheism; they murdered to remain in power.
Hundreds of religious leaders have executed citizens or warred with other groups to further the cause of their religion.
It is absurd to claim Christianity should have more power in our modern world since history has proven time and time again when you give a religion political power it's followers will use that power to torture those who don't believe in it.
Religion is dying out in first world countries.

This issue of shared public space (restrooms, locker rooms, etc) will be the LGBT’s undoing, especially if they continue to push the issue. Could you imagine if the administrators of every shared public space had to create space for straight men, straight women, lesbians, gays, and trannies? The costs would be astronomical, especially for already existing public spaces.

Sommerville says HE’s a Christian. Well, if HE were a bible believing Christian, HE’d know that HIS gender identity issue is born from sin. Just like an alcoholic’s desire to drink more. As a Christian, HE is called to turn from HIS sin, not embrace it like HE’s doing.
Yep, in addition to the gender disorder, it seams he has truth, anatomy and reality disorders.
Where does the bible call what she is doing a sin?
CAM--Deuteronomy 22:5. A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this.
I know some of you will jump on this saying, "Well, what about women wearing pants or jeans?" I'm pretty sure this refers to the deliberate intent of deceiving others as to true gender. A woman in slacks still looks like a woman unless she intentionally disguises her feminine attributes.
His intent is for everyone to think he is a woman, and specifically for men to think he is a woman and be attracted sexually. That is homosexuality. He is no more a Christian than he is a woman. It's sad that our culture has degraded to the point of indulging with perverse individuals in their confused fantasies rather than holding the truth as precious and beyond compromise.
It's like listening to the liberals referring to Obama as a Christian. What a joke!

Maybe the decrease in violent crime statistics in Detroit is simply due to the rapidly decreasing population there. There’s no doubt that their decreasing population is a direct result of their progressive policies.
Actually if you think about it if good citizens were leaving and criminals were staying you would probably see an increase in crime because criminals would know they have easier prey. It's possible.
DLV is right. As the law-abiding population decreases, the percentage of thugs and muggers increases, and the crime rate (crimes per thousand) would go up.
I see a direct correlation to the increase in gun ownership and the reduction in crime.
If this were the only city or geographical location where this relationship were seen, then perhaps you'd have a point, time-to-tea-party. However, because this statistic is repeated regularly in various location, it's safe to say that the causation of gun ownership to reduced crime holds true.
Criminals fleeing Detroit? Could be.

The Israelis show this restraint. Meanwhile, the Palestinians launch their 6 foot Qassam Rockets indiscriminately into Israel looking to kill anyone and everyone.
A few quick points:
A few simple truths for folks to consider ...
- Saul Alinsky, Obama’s primary ideological influence, was a Russian Jew.
- David Axelrod, the media mind behind Obama, is a Russian Jew
- As Derzhavin noted, the Jews are nothing but a band of clever robbers.
- San Juan La Laguna, a town in Guatemala, is asking all Jews to leave
What's a truth if it contains a lie.
Alinsky was born in Chicago and has never lived in Russia. Axelrod was born in New York and never lived in Russia.
"San Juan La Laguna, a town in Guatemala, is asking all Jews to leave"
And in Lebanon there are Muslims who burn churches. Doesn't prove anything.

Too bad that the burglar got away unscathed. It would’ve been nice if he’d have taken a round, or two.
I am glad it didn't happen in Tennessee because the police would have abused the home owner and arrested him and the thief would have gotten a free cup of coffee from the police at the waffle house.my opinion

What? He’s tithing only 0.003% to his church! “Tithing” is giving money to your church, not overall charitable giving. If the Obamas were tithing 10% to their church, they’d have given St. John’s over $48,000.

Because of political correctness run amok, no one in the media will dare report the race of these “thugs”. My guess is that their silence is deafening, and as one would expect they are black or hispanic.

The top 25% (this includes an individual making $60K or more) pay roughly 88% of all the personal federal income taxes.
That means that of the roughly 90 million working individuals that file tax returns, only 22.5 million people are paying almost 90% of all federal personal income tax. Then there are the remaining roughly 150 million adults in this country that file no return.
Just 22.5 million people (a little more than 7% of the U.S. population) pay almost 90% of all federal personal income tax.
