“These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):
1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put thngs back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first workd you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.”

HA! That's a cute list.

Unfortunately, I don't remember Kindergarten. I was drunk the whole year.

People are free to believe what they want, no one will know if there is "truely" a "god" or not until they die, whether you believe in God or not is not going to effect the way you lived and will live your life.. Personally I don't believe there is a god and I have my own reasons, but whether you don't believe or are startin to believe do you really think you would have lived your life any differently? No.
If you just start to believe when you are old, probably you won't make many changes, but the requirements of many religions are very restrictive of various behaviors, so assuming that some of those behaviors are yours, and you are following a belief that you will suffer for those behaviors, if you truly start to believe, wouldn't you be contradicting yourself by not following the teachings (I don't believe the teachings myself though)?

Violence more often than not begets MORE violence.
Why are you Christians such a VIOLENT bunch of people? Why do you embrace violence which goes against the teaching of your Jesus?
In other words, why do so many Christians here make it a POINT to spit on and SH*T on your Jesus?
I disagree.

Look at the very positive outcome after America stopped the bullying of Japan & Germany. They are now two of our strongest allies.

True it wasn't an immediate pay off. But the rewards now are worth the cost of fighting back.

<quoted text>
"Caucasian" does not denote a skin color OR a region where one come from.
Then why your post of last evening about the origin of Caucasians and where they are FROM?

Or like UIF, are you going to deny that post just as she tried to deny that Nano's insulting post to me was here?

Am I going to have to waste MORE time to re-post what you posted last evening about Caucasian being about where one is FROM??

And you are WRONG- Caucasian most certainly DOES denote skin color, and if you are "white", your RACE is Caucasian- not American since American is NOT in any way, shape of form a RACE, but is one thing only- a NATIONALITY.

Definition of CAUCASIAN
1
: of or relating to the Caucasus or its inhabitants
2
: of, constituting, or characteristic of a race of humankind native to Europe, North Africa, and southwest Asia and classified according to physical features —used especially in referring to persons of European descent having usually light skin pigmentation

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cau...

Cau·ca·sian (kô-kzhn,-kzhn)
adj.
1.
a. Anthropology Of or being a human racial classification distinguished especially by very light to brown skin pigmentation and straight to wavy or curly hair, and including peoples indigenous to Europe, northern Africa, western Asia, and India. See Usage Note at race1.
b. Of or relating to a racial group having white skin, especially one of European origin; white.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Caucasian

Now- just because you are an American does not mean you are not Caucasian, because you see, the majority of Americans have their ancestry, descent and roots from countries other than the USA- such as EUROPE.

You are a FOOL to find it "offensive" to be classified as a Caucasian. That IS what you are, unless you are Asian or of African descent.

And have you never filled out a form where you are asked your race and there are the races to choose from?

What do you do, RR- cross out "Caucasian" or "white" and write in "American"???

ROFLMAO!

Matthew 5:22 - But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister,‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says,‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.

Matthew 18:9 - And if your eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

Matthew 23:15 -“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are.

Acts 9:29 - He talked and debated with the Hellenistic Jews, but they tried to kill him.

James 3:6 - The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

2 Peter 2:4 - For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment

As usual, you are wrong AGAIN and you are wrong on BOTH counts.

Too bad you can't bottle and sell your ignorance, RR. Given your incredible surplus of it and that you always have plenty on tap, you could rake in a FORTUNE.

Hi everyone.
I have some sad news to report.
Roadrunner, that used to post on this thread, apparently died during a minor surgery on Monday.
Those of us who knew her, would remember her for being a smart, intelligent and considerate poster. For those of you lucky enough to know her beyond Topix, you would know the bravery she has shown in face of the medical problems she had. She was a great lady.
RIP RR
I am SO very sorry to hear this, DF. I posted with RoadRunner on an abortion thread for quite a long time, though I stopped posting on that thread some time ago other than a couple of quick posts a few weeks ago.

This is very sad news indeed; despite RoadRunner's very long and ongoing battle with cancer, she always maintained a positive spirit and was determine to let nothing get her down- she fought her cancer like the real trouper she was and in addition, her posts were always well thought out, intelligent and informative.

And she was an overall lovely, warm and kind person.

She will be missed.

But does God "exist," or does he just exist? It sounds pretty dull being a god.

There's nothing to discover, nothing to do, nowhere to go, no novelty, and no surprises.

Being perfect means you can never change or improve anything that is already perfect, since the perfect becomes imperfect with change.

And how about time? How slow does that pass when you already know everything?

And space. If you're ubiquitous, you can't even move.

And all those prayers. They never stop. God no, not the prayers!

I like my life better.

Yes, I busted through the back window with a chain & it wrapped around the sumbitch's face. Then he got pistol whipped...
It was not an "over-stated reaction to what he did to me". He deserved it. What makes you defend the asshole that chooses to break into someones vehicle & steal it? Ever happen to you? What if it did, what would you do if you accidentally caught the asshole?
YOU might walk away & call someone stronger than you (cops), I'm not that kind of person. I stand & defend myself, my family, my friends and my belongings.
Here if I had a pistol with me, I would got to jail, so that wouldn't happen, but I most certainly would not pull a gun on someone, other than maybe to make him stay put, until the cops arrived.

I told a story on one thread about kicking a bunch of hunters off our farm property when we were hunting deer, and they were too, and I left my gun with my hunting partners before approaching 3 big men, several hundred yards away, all carrying big rifles. In no way was I going to give them the idea that I had any intention of doing them any harm. Written permission was required from landowners to hunt, and I owned the land and my group was hunting there.

My brother, who started farming with me, when he was still in his late teens, and I was married (5-6 years older) was often out at night cruising the roads and drinking with his buddies. One night he was in the local town, and some kids from another community started harassing him. One threw a beer bottle and took the outside mirror off our farm truck. Then they chased him around the little town, and prevented him from escaping to go home. At one point he came on one of their vehicles which they were not in at that moment, and because he was angry, he grabbed a loose chain saw chain that happened to be laying in the back of the truck, and whacked it across one of the car windows, breaking it. He then being pursued again, drove to my uncle's home, who at the time, was either the mayor of the town or the regional provincial member of government (depends on which year it was because it was in about 1971 or 1972 that he was first elected to provincial government) to seek help, as at that point he was scared.

My uncle was a bit ticked that he had been dragged into it because of his political standing in the area, which he thought would not go over too well if news got out that he had been involved in the situation. However, I think he called the cops, and eventually both my brother and the other guys who had harassed him were charged with minor crimes, which they later had to appear in court for. I don't recall the outcome of that, but likely a small fine.

Fortunately he damaged only property, and they damaged only property, but it could have ended much differently although not likely anyone would have been killed as pretty well everyone involved knew the families of the others, and they were not enemies in general. It was more a case of young guys goofing around which got carried too far.

Uh-oh....before you moronically accuse me of thinking Europe is a country, I'd better edit the following from a prior post of mine to you:

Now- just because you are an American does not mean you are not Caucasian, because you see, the majority of Americans have their ancestry, descent and roots from countries other than the USA- such as *COUNTRIES IN* EUROPE.

But do feel free to once again show your ridiculous anal-retentiveness, RR.

However, I was NOT in ANY way saying that Europe is a COUNTRY, for of course, I KNOW it is NOT.

Too bad though that YOU don't know that Caucasian most certainly DOES denote race and one's origins.
