Religious people are suffering from dementia and Jesus Christ the Nazarene was a schizophrenic according to you? Can't blame J.C. being 'old' since he died at 33.

Yet another fundie whose god apparently forbids use of the "reply" button, so as to insure that his posts will remain incomprehensible. Or, anti's sock drawer is one short of the normal tally.

I didn't say that all religious people are demented, but the bell curve is wide enough for loonies to fit right in without a second glance.
I never refer to Jesus as a Nazarene and I don't think he was crazy, but I do think that Paul had issues and there is even better evidence that John of Patmos was nuttier than a pecan grove.

Try taking a walk. But make it fast, that way your neighbors have less of a chance of hitting you with rocks.
you are the one cyber stalking someone....not me. You have issues

I dunno. Doesn't sound like much fun for the unfortunate Asian girl. Some of those Nail Salons seem like modern day sweat shops full of chemical fumes and exploited workers. My sympathies tend towards the exploited workers, perhaps because I count myself amongst their numbers (at some level). Why can't people groom themselves? I can see cutting your own hair is a problem, but the rest of it? There's a gulf that exists between the pampered and the pamperers that needs filling. Harkens back to the slave days and the "I'm better'n you, Holier than thou" ways that is the REAL root of all evil.

You most certainly have the right to be a working class pessimist in today's USA, But most Asian businesses like you're talking about are family operated and they are working as a family.They work and live in small packs for the betterment of the entire family, It is their way of life as they know it. Their family ties are so much strong they are willing to set aside their own selfish desires to do what's in their families best interest as a whole. It is their way of achieving their American Dream.

They are more dedicated to the cause than most modern day American Families. I can understand how you feel like you do because of your way of life, but when I look at them I admire them for their dedication to their cause. If you knew what they have left behind you would be more understanding I'm sure.

God must like killing, starvation, poverty, and so forth because this earth has an abundance of ignorant people who think their god approves of their stupid.

Go god fearing people, kill your neighbor for the shade of his skin or his broken English or because he believes a little bit different from you.

It is not the Asians I am ashamed of. But ... Thank you for the nice demonstration on How to Rationalize an Injustice.

LOL! Working for a living is an injustice? They wouldn't be here if they didn't want to be. Why don't you go to Laos and see how they have to live vs. here. You sound like a Liberal, Liberal.

He seems to think that judging posts (including his own) makes him correct. Nothing else has worked.

Of course, but isn't it blatantly obvious that aa judges his OWN posts? I haven't seen any other participants regarding him as "brilliant, agreeable and helpful." Personally, I find displaying that level of insecurity is rather pitiful, don't you?
