Re: Military service

Byblos - I'm not taking sides, nor do I want to debate whatever atrocities. And it's not to say there hasn't been justification for going to war. My only point is that a lot of people calling themselves Christians are not necessarily ones / or have had dirty hands in various atrocities - as is like...

Re: Military service

Blessed: But if you can't tell if they are truly Christians or not you have to go by what they declare right ? I don't! And in Serbia and that war, there were many atrocities on both sides. It matters not one whit to me that some of those committing such considered themselves Christians. Very simil...

I needed to cut back even more on my drinking, which im proud to say has been a doddle.
Just from using the word 'doddle' I think you're gonna be fine. :ewink:

Re: blackface

Granted, hypocrisy of the left is undeniable. But Meghan Kelly should have known better, or anyone else for that matter. Just a cursory search on the history of 'blackface' reveals that its sole purpose was to denigrate an entire race. It was historically (and still is) institutional racism at its ...

Re: Being a New England sports fan in the 21st century...

I remember the frustration of the 1986 Red Sox. And how bad the Patriots were for a while. The Pats were always tough, and they usually lost - the 2-6 team nobody wanted to play, or at least that's how they spun it. I remember one season, way back when I was a kid, when I swear they lost like their...

Re: HELP!!! Need urgent PC advice!

Laptops have big drawbacks for comfort, use, and quick access and transfer of files and documents. I DETEST laptops. If I need portability, I use an ipad - or iphone. And even if you get top of line laptop, you will never match the speed, capacity for expansion, or cost of a decent desktop. On the ...

Re: HELP!!! Need urgent PC advice!

Guys, my PC's motherboard died - and at the worst possible time. So I must get another PC tower ASAP! My computer guy thinks he can save and transfer the files to another machine. Any recommendations on a brand? I'd like to find a used / but fairly new tower - or a refurbished one. My repair guy li...

Re: Brother ill

If he has type 2 diabetes tell him to google "Dr. Jason Fung." It can be reversed. Not all type II's are reversible. It depends on whether or not the pancreas is still capable of producing enough insulin on its own. My wife and I are both diabetic (T2). When I was diagnosed over a decade ago I was ...

Re: Have we crossed the line yet?

I don't really think of people as being extremists until they start violently pushing their beliefs onto their neighbors. ISIS and the KKK (at least before they had their fangs pulled) are extremists in that their views are extreme and they're willing to harm people who disagree with them. I don't ...
