Eternal Life...

A guy is walking along a Florida beach when he comes across a lamp
partially buried in the sand.

He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub.

A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish.

The guy thinks for a moment and says, "I want to live forever."

"Sorry," said the genie, "I'm not allowed to grant eternal life."

"OK, then, I want to die after the Congress balances the budget and
eliminates the debt.

"You crafty little XXXXXXX," said the genie.

Surviving as parasites in a country not your own is nothing to envy.

You didn't know that Jews and Christians have same belief against race-mixing?
Sorry, dude. I am a protestant Irish Christian. Can't help it, if Jews are also correct in my thinking.
Doesn't make me a Jew, no more than it makes you a rapist.
Where did Jesus say not to race mix? He didn't. He even granted salvation to people who were not of the Jewish race. If it wasn't for race mixing you wouldn't even be allowed to be a Christian. I think rape is a crime against humanity and you think people should rape women crossing the border illegally. You're a sicko white guy who picks and chooses his biblical laws(the Jewish ones). This is fubar.

The simple way to describe the Dave Duerson tragedy is this: A smart, talented, driven young man grew up in a Midwestern town, became a football star, graduated from a prestigious college, won two Super Bowls (one with the Bears, one with the Giants), earned his master’s in business from Harvard, raised a family, became a business millionaire, earned great political and ­community respect, saw it all crumble to dust and killed himself.
That may be factual, but in so many ways, it’s not the truth.
Dave Duerson was far too complicated to sum up in a mere run-on sentence of incidents. Indeed, his rise and fall has the earmarks of a Shakespearean tragedy — a complex protagonist displaying the great virtues and frailties of will, resolution, pride, stubbornness, genius, hubris, vanity and then, of course, the foreshadowed and frightful descent into darkness.
On Feb. 17, Duerson shot himself in the chest with a .38 special at his condo north of Miami.
He was 50. As far as anyone knows, he was not in ill health. More precisely, his body — being those organs, bones and tissues ­exclusive of the brain — was in decent shape. On his bankruptcy statement, interestingly, he had listed under yearly medical ­expenses:“$0.”
He had recently made a list of three new goals in his life: One — get a new job (“He was going to get back into the meat business down there, and he had a satellite-radio show that he was doing,’’ says best friend Harold Rice, the chief executive officer of the Albany Park Community Center on Chicago’s Northwest Side);
His business problems — a meat-packing plant that went under, personal financial ruin — were manifest, and he and his wife Alicia had divorced several years before.(That they were still best friends before his suicide hints at the complexity of his relationships with the world.) His four teenage and older children loved him, and he traveled up from Florida from time to time to see them at sporting events and to see Alicia. This was despite the fact he had angrily thrown Alicia against a wall, in a sudden and irrational burst of anger, while the couple were visiting Notre Dame in 2005 to attend a board of trustees meeting and to watch son Tregg play football. And despite the fact he had a new girlfriend in Washington, D.C., whom he had said he intended to marry.
Dave had been down, yes. And life was seemingly crumbling about him, if it wasn’t already demolished. And his price was such that the move to Florida was almost as much an escape from his adopted hometown of Chicago and its judgment as it was a place to start over. But as Alicia says,“The financial situation and all that — he had dealt withit.’’
“He came to me back in 2006 when it was all falling apart,’’ Rice says.“And he said,‘You know what a phoenix is?’ I said,‘Yes. A bird that rises from the ashes.’ He said,‘Well, that’s me. That’s what I’m going to be — a phoenix.
At the death scene — as tidy and clean a suicide venue as the investigating Dade County police had ever seen — Duerson even had new business cards laid out, ones that ­designated him as an executive of a Florida meat distributor.
In the condo, which Alicia and close family friend Otis Wilson and Rice would visit after the police investigation concluded, there was a bizarre, illogical ­normalcy to the place.
There was a Bible, and books in proper places, towels folded, the carpet vacuumed. His Cadillac Escalade in the downstairs parking lot was freshly cleaned and detailed.
“You would have thought that any second he was going to walk back in,’’ Rice says.
Indeed, Rice was so disturbed by the rationality of the scene — all except the large blood stain on the mattress — that he told Alicia,“This stuff doesn’t add up.’’ He was certain it must have been a murder.
But the security cameras showed that no one had come or gone from Duerson’s apartment in two days. There were long, typed letters from Duerson, but they were not about suicide, and Rice thought they could have been forged

It was at the temple.. He saw that everyone spoke the same language and, he scatterd them.
Yeah, I think we should rape illegal female trespassers. Can you think of any other country under invasion, who didn't think the same?
If they don't want to be raped, they will stay home.
Are you talking about the tower of Babel , my Jewish friend? All Jesus scattered at the Temple were the money changers and folks selling sacrifices. Karma may dictate that someone close to you might get raped ,you should be careful what you wish for. The only American women raped in Iraq were by other Americans. At least two of them worked for Brown &Root and were raped by their fellow employees. Justice would dictate that if you are ever arrested a giant black man might make you permanently incontinent. This is fubar.
