Well the article said it was a state law not a federal law they going by. I can say for one liberal anyway being progressived isnt synonymous with wanting pre-op trans-sexuals in lockerrooms with children. But politics aside..how in the world does a law say a guy who still has male genitalia should be considered female? By that logic any guy could put a wig on and demand to be allowed in a women's locker-room. They need to change the law. If my nieces were 6 when that happened that guy would be on post-op life-support.

Yep. Its ugly and has been for some time. In fact just before I was let go (2009) and was working in Ca. one Sunday morning I was in San Diego. San Diego has a huge homeless problem. Most of accounts I went to was rooftop work and the access was in the back. Just about every stop had someone living in the back. Sad. This one Sunday I got some food and shared it with 2 people that were there. They started fighting over it! It breaks my heart.

I hear ya. Personally I think in part because the problems seem so overwhelming these days it can almost be discouarging in and of itself. It is like trying to blot up the ocean with a roll of paper towel.. It is why the burnout rate is so high in social work professions. That must have been a sad thing to see. But you gave some hungry people some food to eat..Jesus will remind us of this (Matthew 25:38-46..going from memory). Imagine if everybody just did something as simple as that? What a world it could be.(T) PEACE

Dear God, There is nothing like the feeling of being loved! You created us to love and be loved...and I thank you for all the love you have given me and shown me throughout all my days. Thank you for all the special touches and blessings that let me know you care about even the smallest details of my life and that you love me no matter what. Thank you for friends who are there for me...and that I can be there for...through the seasons of life. Thank you for the love of parents and children and extended family. I am grateful for the love in my life. I pray that every person will experience love...especially your unending, far-reaching, peace-bringing, merciful and unconditional love. I love you. In the name of Jesus I pray and offer my whole-hearted love and thankfulness. Amen.

I have learned not to carry any money because I was going broke fast. I live on a very tight budget and there is not a lot left over at the end of the month.

Last week a woman stuck her cup out at me and asked for money...happens all the time around here. If I take my walk through the market and then downtown I will be asked 4 or 5 times before I get back home.

I had my debit card with me and we were standing close to a Subway shop and I thought that I could feed her for 6-7 dollars...you know...6 inch sub/chips/drink. I took her in and told her to order her sandwhich...she did. The most expensive 12 inch that they sold and the largest drink that they had. Before I got out of there I had spent 13 dollars! More than I would have ever spent on my own lunch.

I was so disappointed that she took advantage. I tried to do something kind for her and...well...I was upset with her...then I became upset with myself. I knew...it wasn't about what she did...it was however all about that I wanted to help someone else. I just need to be a little smarter about how I do it!

I read most of the conversations that have gone on here about people on government assistance. I chose not to respond while it was so heated. I did do some research though.

During the campaign the figure got thrown about that around 49% of Americans were on some type of assistance. I was shocked...until I read further. That figure included people on Social Security...Medicare...etc. When you back those people out the figure was closer to 33%. Still too high but IMO more accurate.

I guess that we have to ask ourselves...does the solution lie with the government...with us as individuals...or a combination of the two.

Saturday as I came home from my walk I passed by an private agency that feeds those in need. There were literally hundreds of people wrapped around the block...some homeless...some just in need. I don't know what was going on that day because normally they are not open on weekends. I had a few spare minutes that I could have helped but this agency screens it's volunteers making it impossible to just drop in to help.

This same agency (funded totally by donations) also acts as an employment agency for the homeless. If you need someone to do some odd job for you such as yard work...help with moving...cleaning...you can call and they will send one of their clients out. They not only screen volunteers but also their clients that are on this work program.

I mention this agency because it is not federally funded.

Okay...I had more to say...you know me...never at a loss for words...but I am almost out of that 4000 character allotment! I am sure that you understand! LOL Maybe that is a sign that...I have said enough...

Just to let you know BTJ, I've been married 20 years so far so I do know what that is like... and you can tell me all you want that "20 years mariage doesn't cause any divisions or hates to each other" all you want but no matter how long one is married, if one doesn't stay up on that marriage, maintain it and complement one another's needs then that marriage could desolve even if they were married 37 years.

If you don't accept tolls then I'll just give alms:

Yep...I feel his pain, could have wrote that myself, I've found past a certain age education be damned, either you have to become very entrepreneurial or work a few low skill(read low pay) jobs that you can grab to sustain. I do both.

Employers have pick of the litter now with so many out of work vying for the same positions. Makes it so much more difficult, can't tell you how many resumes I farmed out the last few years, had interviews, 2nd interviews...and come up empty handed.

Years ago I used to poo-poo the older fellows who I worked with complain of age discrimination, but now in their age bracket myself can report it is real. Done very subtly. One must be very creative in these times.

So, see you're not here as often either, I'll check in occasionally myself. Hope all is well, always be prepared for the future, take time to enjoy the Creation....

Hey Quin, how ya be:)

I remember in the '80s when it was UPC symbols, commonly known as "bar codes" :

http://www.av1611.org/666/barcode.html

I actually worked on systems (design and production) that applied at that time (early 1980's) and was a young believer at the time. Had well meaning brethren inform me I was "assisting the Anti-Christ..." that "..the Lord would return .." before the end of the decade and I should leave my employment or be damned. Well, I did eventually leave, but not for those reasons. It seems as a particular eschatological view has gained foothold beginning in the dawn of the 20th century, new technology seems to be scrutinized to how it may "fit in" to the letter of Revelation. I found this on Snopes:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/microc...

What do you think?

I'm in the process of reading the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" ,aka "Obamacare", daunting task but believe all should try, to know first hand what is being thrust on us.

Well, got to be about my day, hope yours is a great one bro...

I believe there is a lot of coincidental truth at work there. The creator of the bar code admitted that the 666 was strangely in there but that it wasn't his intention to code that in. I believe him... it reminds me of the "stone that was rejected has become a capstone" situation... in the same prophetic fashion, not even wicked Judas planned to work himself into the former prophecy that he would betray Jesus.

I think, like most of us, your well-meaning brethren had a glimpse of what would occur (we see in part... I Cor 13). But didn't have all the pieces. The pieces are starting to come together more now. Like when you start a jigsaw puzzle.. you can't make out the image... but the more it comes together, the more you see it happening unless one wants to just be wilfully ignorant. Let the ignorant stay ignorant, let the the filthy stay filthy still (from Rev) if that the route that one chooses to stay on.
