Whatís theirs? what was stolen and handed to them. Not content with what they were given they chose to take more and created settlements on the best bits of land that was not given to them.

Then to stop any reprisals they chose to impoverish the inhabitants of the land they stole by preventing economic, humanitarian and medical aid by blockading them for 8 years.

considering how much a proffesional athlete gets for being good with a stupid ball or how much a rap 'artist'(smirk) gets for a 'song'(smirk), a good preacher should pull-down at least 7 figures for every sermon if people weren't such idolators and morons!!!;-)
When I was young preachers were supposed to be poor. They lived by the grace of God and the congregation. It was a "holy" calling. Any money surplus went to church work, not the pastor's pocket.

Then I read in the late 70's or so where the average preacher's salary was $44,000. That wad very good money at that time. Was such a profitable profession seminaries sprang up and cranked out lots of preachers. Baptist, anyhow. They taught the hair style and magic words to lead the faithful.

Religion turned into showbiz.

Nothin wrong with the religion, just the kind of people that flock to where the money is.

You ain't listening to God's word in those big churches that pay preachers that much.

Right, it is illegal to sell wild meat without USDA inspection. You cant even have wild game processed in the same facility as meat that will be sold. Or even your own hand raised beef, pork or chicken. Must be totally separate.
You can have private dinners and eat any or all of it, but as far as a restaurant serving it full time, I am not sure how they would handle that.
In pennsylvania hunters just give their game away. We donate deer and bear legally culled to homeless shelters, etc. As long as you give it away big brother doesn't bother you.

It seems they all think they do, thus all the finger pointing and saying "they are not REAL Christians". I am. My church has everything right.

And the animal didn't die for no reason. I very much like the fact that people can donate the food to be eaten. Killing just to get a trophy to hang over the fireplace is just sick to me. Hunters need to know exactly where to donate unwanted meat. It should be on their hunting license. A phone number or web address so someone can come pick up the meat.

Uh, Auralie, supply and demand. Cows are easier to catch. In fact there is a whole industry built around that. However they are getring much more expensive. This is the smallest cattle herd since 1951. BTW, John Deere took a big hit to profits because sales of farm machinery were way down. But the prices for food won't. Malthusian economics.
Free range beef and chicken are more expensive. Game animals will be, too. Called economics.
I just love the intellectual power Topix atheists can bring to bear on a subject. Doesn't interfere with listening to the crickets.

I'm a loser but you called America a terrorist nation, and I support that terrorist nation.
You want the post of yours? Okay:
"LOL... good job I read your post last night before I went home otherwise I would have sprayed my coffee.
Not fascist? Not a dictatorship? Your pretty pink and fluffy dream of the light hearted and gentle nature of the US is so touching.
You will toe the line, you will proceed as we want, you will form your government in our image, you will not do anything to upset the delicate senilities of the American public - You will allow extradition of your citizens who break US law to the US as US demand but we will never reciprocate for US citizens who break your laws.
The CIA are the most dictatorial organisation on this planet and ask any of the inmates of Guantanamo bay just how fascist the US military can be.
And you forgot the Israeli terrorist killing innocent women and children under the protection of the UN (and killing an 8 year old girl under the protection of cease fire) But I suppose you consider that sort of terrorism to be ok because you help finance it.
Seems you are always OK with terrorism that you help finance. Hypocrite."
Glad you admit that you are a loser. You may have multiple socks but that will never change your personality. You really are letting your side down by appearing on topix when the pinnacle of redneck social networking is dragging their couch, TV and a 6 pack of cheap bear the front lawn (or better still getting there slave wife to do it) so itís easier to yell at their neighbours.

Now show me where in my post that I called America a terrorist nation.

You canít therefore you are a liar

I made fun of the delicate sensibilities (senilities) of the US public (donít get me wrong here, only about 70% are raving godbots of little intelligence and there are even fewer rednecks of even less intelligence) and I told a truth or two about US extradition policy. I said the CIA is dictatorial, the US military is fascist and the US taxpayers fund ďIsraeli terrorismĒ committed against innocent women and children under UN protection.

But nowhere Ė NOWHERE did I suggest the US was a terrorist nation... N O W H E R E. It is not Americas fault that Israel uses terrorism to puppy whip those it stole homes and land from despite the fact that the US has supplied the many of weapons and technical expertise for Israel to be able to do this.

So in conclusion it turns out that your are either a ignorant lying moron who gets his sexual kicks by lying in public or a deliberately ignorant lying moron who has great difficulty reading and interpreting English and sees no discredit in lying... see what I mean about the American public? How many more of the American public are born in your image?

Anyway, which is it? Are you a lie from choice or is it just natural?

So which terrorism do I help finance... come one, out with it... put your money where your big fat lying mouth is. Or are you just lying again because that thick redneck brain of yours canít invent anything remotely truthful to say?

Itís not a one itís a jar of yeast extract spread (or goo depending on your tastes). I will try here not to be prejudiced... honest.

See http://www.ilovemarmite.com/default.asp

It is banned in Denmark, is illegal in Canada

There is a similar Australian product called Vegemite, there are serious verbal battles (even on TV) over which is best that are completely lost on me (no more comment on that). It seems that Vegemite is banned in the US, chances are Marmite will not be too far behind... Just looked it up...the US will not ban Marmite because the British government have threatened to revoke Ruby Waxís visa if they do. Oh yeah... please ban it.

Really, itís just a hoax but I believe Marmite is available on US Amazon as well as some specialist shops (no not that sort of specialist)... specialist British food product shops. I have a friend who told me that he found a cafe in California that imports and sells Richmond sausages and proper smoked back bacon ... Good old English breakfast rules OK...

Denmark has banned all food with added vitamins, and since Marmite is made out of B12, it got screwed.

Didn't know about Canada, I will sneak a pot in next year.

Marmite in New Zealand has sugar added. Now I really didn't like that.
