I don't trust the medications out there today, but I know what weed does. I could use some every once in a while.

I keep waiting for something from you that indicates there is some real depth, personality, intellect, or something of value about you.

I see why you need to cling to whatever is close to you in this current of life, and call them friends.

<quoted text> From your link: "The information we have regarding the provenance of the Papyrus Ipuwer is that it was copied by 19th Dynasty scribes and constitutes a part of what is known as the Papyrus Leiden 334."
Notice, that it says it was >copied< in the 19th Dynasty.
More about the 19th Dynasty and timeline.
"The Pharaohs of the 19th dynasty ruled for approximately one hundred and ten years: from ca 1292 to 1187 BCE." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteenth_Dynas...
As I said before, the dates do not match. Some more information.
"An Egyptian named Ipuwer wrote it at the end of the Middle Kingdom, around 1650 B.C.E.; scribes copied it in the 19th Dynasty, in the 1200s B.C.E" - Roger Isaacs, Author,'Talking With God'
Ipuwer Papyrus info @wikipedia.
"The dating of the original composition of the poem is disputed, but several scholars have suggested a date between the late 6th dynasty and the Second Intermediate Period (ca. 1850 BCE-1600 BCE),[4] and appears to describe how the Hyksos took over Egypt.

I can agree with that somewhat. The larger cities, populated areas, and College towns can and are pretty progressive.

But, some(not all) of the rural areas are just as racist, misogynistic and bigoted as they ever were.

Can anybody spell Larry Craig?

Broun is a political conservative; his fundamentalist religious views inform his politics. In May 2009, Broun proposed failed legislation that would have proclaimed 2010 "The Year Of The Bible".[23] He also introduced a bill to ban the sale or rental of sexually explicit materials on U.S military installations.[24]
In 2008, Broun and 91 co-sponsors introduced H.J.Res.89, a proposition for the Federal Marriage Amendment. The proposed amendment to the United States Constitution would define marriage as "as consisting only of the union of a man and a woman.

He protesteth too much methinks.

No, I'm pointing out that one need not be "intelligent" in order to be educated. You appear to believe otherwise.

I'm not the least bit "upset". I'm just pointing out that he has an irrational belief, and an especially irrational belief for someone in his position.

Why don't you go hit on him and see how he responds? You say you are fit, drive snazzy cars, and have money. Catch him in a john somewhere. Expose him. It's your civic duty.

You might enjoy it.

I'd be all for celebrating - "Because" - if there was a festive time called - "Because" - I'd be there.

It would be for everyone.
