  1. Thanks Barb, for being balanced and not in denial that both sides can be militant and crazy. We need to be careful that "we the people" do not enable them.
  2. Sometimes, there IS more to the story than just blindly rejecting some things because Israel is mentioned. Iran gets blamed for everything now, but the details are out there if one dares to search, and those details come from Israel themselves, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot in their own words they supported the groups in Syria, which logically could be more broad...but I guess whatever one wants to believe...but we should be careful not to deny the facts...for the sake of either politics or religious beliefs... https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-01-14/israels-top-commander-finally-admits-role-syrias-invisible-war The interview constitutes the first time that any current top Israeli military or government official has fully acknowledged sending anything beyond "humanitarian supplies," such as medical aid to Syrian militants seeking to topple the Assad government; and yet it still appears the country's military chief is slow playing the confirmation, only acknowledging the IDF provided "light weapons" — even after years of reporting has definitively uncovered an expansive Israeli program to arm dozens of insurgent groups and pay their salaries, including known affiliates of al-Qaeda in Syria. This comes after the Syrian government has for years accused Israel of partnering with the west and gulf countries, such as the US, UK, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of funding and weaponizing an al-Qaeda/ISIS insurgency as part of covert regime change operations aimed at Damascus and its allies Iran and Hezbollah. Since then, countries like Qatar have come forward to reveal just how vast their covert role in fueling the Syrian war really was, which we covered in our story, In Shocking, Viral Interview, Qatar Confesses Secrets Behind Syrian War.

    Happy Valentine Everybody

    Thanks my friend...the very same to you Umbert and to all here, Happy Valentines Day! Hope you have been well and life is treating you good :D
  4. What a great story Shabs! Love it, that boy has a great collection that will likely only grow larger. Thanks my friend, hope you have been well!
  5. My simple thoughts after spending many years inside the church and observing... Beliefs require faith, with little to no evidence. Beliefs often require constant validation form others, approval so to speak, based upon a certain framework, ideology, etc. Perhaps a better description of what many call "truth" would be "hopeful speculation" when it comes to religious matters, no matter the label. Truth never needs defended, it stands on its own, it is evident. What does need defended are beliefs and various ideologies that need constant validation, but cannot be "proven" due to lack of evidence. The truth is many of these matters have resulted throughout history in violence, forced conversions, and always appears to have a large element within for control and power over others by organized religion that is often more concerned about what wealth a person has rather than the love and peace of god. What happens too often is folks trying to protect their beliefs while hearing things that may challenge them. What matters most to me is a person's character, integrity, and the bottom line universal message of most religions...treat others as you would have them treat you. Love your neighbor as yourself, in which we humans have still not understood that...and would rather fight about what we want to be true. If we fail in that, treating others how we desire to be treated, we fail in all of it, and it becomes little more than empty noise and pounding of chests as to who has "truth". Not a single person if they are honest, can with 100% certainty claim what they believe is "truth". The best any of us can do is learn how to treat fellow humans with dignity and respect from the heart. The rest is noise and a bunch of threats people use against each other. Spirituality is personal, no validation needed while seeking peace and unity. Unity never comes from "doctrinal purity" which usually divides, true unity is of the heart. We all know what is most powerful out of faith, hope and love...if the church wants unity, they better get back to love or it all falls apart. Love is patient, love is kind...it never torments nor treats another with contempt.
  6. I agree Pitcher, and have always stated such about both parties being corrupt and their histories certainly support that. To claim one is better than the other when we have seen both do the same things over and over would be cognitive dissonance. True patriots are what we need more of, those whose loyalties are NOT to any political party, but rather to their country and 'we the people'. Thomas Paine once said "A true patriot is one who protects the people from the government". He never mentioned anything about party loyalty nor personality cults which both parties tend to create, along with the resulting division. Thanks Pitcher, hope you are doing well

    Indictments

    I think much of the information being spread is based upon this "Q" anonymous character. It started in October of 2017, and claimed then that Hill Clinton would be indicted by end of October that year. Of course that did not happen as well as everything else that has been claimed. As much as we all want to see corruption dealt with and all responsible held accountable, we need to be careful of believing claims just because it is what we want to hear. https://trumptube.tv/donald-trump-rally-speech-video/video/video-q-anon-a-hoax-9-4-18/
  8. Very wise information, simple and to the point. Most folks do not get adequate sun exposure, and those that do wear too much sun blocker which is worse for them than the sun. It is pretty sad when the RDA of vitamin D is 400 IU., when in reality we need so much more than that, his 10,000 iu. base is quite accurate for those who do not get out much. Much disease can occur when vit. D and magnesium levels are deficient, but pharma provides a myriad of drugs to hide the symptoms of our bodies telling us what we need.

    Transgender wins Miss Spain - Insane World

    Must be a reason why aliens fly by and decide NOT to stay. Why would they?
  10. So sorry to hear this about Brandy and her children. Just tragic but I am grateful they are still alive. Please tell her we are thinking of her and hoping her and her kids heal quickly. Thank you Bridget for informing all of us.

    Creating "Fakeness"

    Thank you CL. A good reminder for us all that just because something may be what we want to hear, it never means it is "truth". So many sites making claims that have zero evidence, yet many believe the claim. This is most prevalent within political and religious topics.

    John is a funny guy. Just one of those fellows that are fun to listen to. He died in 2014, very talented fellow, and just a nice person. Thanks B/A for the laugh! :)

    Slip of the tongue is no fault to the mind

    Thanks Pitcher. I really think anyone who puts party above their country is extremely shortsighted and pays little attention to history. In my opinion, a true patriot's loyalty should rest in two places, but actually they are one..."we the people" and their country. If a person is a "party loyalist", and I know more than a few, I find they are blind to anything that does not reflect positive on their parties, and that is very shortsighted. They are the first to argue and bicker which solves nothing. In addition, most do not realize that party politics are dirty, corrupt and with an underlying motive to keep "we the people" divided. I have seen the games played by both parties, over many decades, and the root of all of it is division. If we are loyal to our country and the people that give it life, and if we learn to work together rather than against each other, we would strip party politics of its influence in how we conduct ourselves toward our fellow citizens. No one needs political ideologies and the division that comes with it...we the people only need to first see each other as citizens, treat each other as we desire to be treated and work together to do the right thing for our country, not for a political party. Political parties are and always will be all about the money, and history proves they value that much more than they do "we the people" who they swore to serve. Party loyalty usually has only one fruit...maybe two...division and lack of critical thinking. Most folks DO want what is best for the republic. Unfortunately, we too often only hear from those who are more interested in power and control rather than doing what is best for everyone regardless of their party. If we are truly for liberty and freedom and the pursuit of happiness and decency, being a party loyalist will only distract us from reaching those ideals. This is clearly seen in how many folks supported bills that have slowly stripped those ideals from us, because they were more loyal to their political party than they were for the good of their country.
  14. Graham pledges to 'sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia' over missing journalist Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday said he would "sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia" while blaming Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the disappearance of a U.S.-based journalist. "It's up to the president," Graham said on Fox News's "Fox & Friends" when asked what President Trump should do about the situation. "I know what I'm going to do: I'm going to sanction the hell out of Saudi Arabia." Graham added that he was "personally offended" by the disappearance of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi, who has been missing since Oct. 2, when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get paperwork needed for his marriage. He went on to say that he has been a staunch defender of Saudi Arabia, but warned that he cannot "do business" with the country until Salman is ousted. "This guy is a wrecking ball. He had this guy murdered," Graham said. "To expect me to ignore it, I feel used and abused." LINK: https://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/411590-graham-pledges-to-sanction-to-hell-out-of-saudi-arabia-over-missing --- My opinion is simple: This should not go away or be swept under a rug. We need to follow up against their barbarism and tyrannical ways and it sounds like the President and others are prepared to do so. It will not change their ways nor how they treat people, but it will at least let them know we will not cover for them, "ally" or not. I would also void the 110 Billion dollar arms deal cut with them last year.
  15. Well said cranman, quite right my friend. I think we forget that aspect, 'we the people' are part of the business, we want what we want, and it is too easy to overlook the human aspects of the originating country where we do business. If it were not for the oil products, likely it would be a different relationship. To me, The Sauds are oppressive and tyrannical...it is very much a part of their culture, but...they have what we want, perhaps the US can change that if we were self sufficient in oil...and we could be I think. Thanks :)
