<quoted text>I can give you a great recipe for drop biscuits. Easy, quick and good. I can also give you a good recipe for dumplings that is equally easy if you like. Always glad to share and have others share their recipes with me. Never know when you're going to find something that you really like and never heard of or never tried to make.
Oh, a little advice on shooting your range/laptop. Take them outside first.:)
I never turn down recipes, still working on my kitchen skills so easy is best at the moment. I am truly loving the new range! I think its safe for now, but thank you for the advice as well as any recipes you send my way.

Good evening everyone.I haven't been here in some time but HEAH AH IZ AGIN,LOL.
I stopped in to tell you guys if there be any Christians here that since we just had a day celebrating M L KING Jr's birthday that he was a heretic and did not believe in the resurrection of Christ nor did he believe that Christ was the son of God nor did he believe in the virgin birth.It's in some of the papers he wrote.

Any Christain that learns this about King should have a really big problem with this man that called himself a Baptist minister.He was nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing. Read the link I posted above to learn the truth about ML KING.
I'm not worried about his theology, but I am impressed with what Martin Luther King DID. There's a mural paying tribute to him in the city here called 'I Have a Dream'.

The sad thing is they've had a "no guns" policy up until a year or so ago that did nothing to curb gun violence. The bad guys still brought guns into D.C. and used them.

You play and pay in the here and now. If we get another try, it will be based on how we lived this life and how much we learned. That is the only justice that can truly be justice.
There is no justice with a maniacal God-being that just kills people off or tortures them for eternity for something so small as a thought but allows serial killers into paradise because he says,'Ooops! I made a mistake and I'm sorry.' to the God being instead of all those he hurt while in this life.
The idea of substitutional atonement is abhorrent and any book that teaches that it is not only acceptable, but desirable is horrific.
the choice is yours, like everyone else but the LAW is ONE; whether you only accept it's feminine aspects, or masculine.

justice is always personofied by the feminine.

Electric blankets are a Godsend. They use little electricity and provide direct heat. Makes it a little tough getting out of bed in the morning. In the hot summer I have to get up early because it gets too hot. I would just as soon hibernate for the winter and save my energy for all the good things under the Son. Or sun. Unfortunately, I don't have that option.
Cats love electric blankets, too.

They did see it. He was crucified, the Temple was destroyed and the Jews were scattered to the four winds and Rabbinical, sacrificeless Judaism was born.
They didn't like the ending so they invented a new one.
No Messiah = no End of Days, therefore Jesus failed as a prophet. Real Messianic prophecies state quite clearly that the blood sacrifices will continue for all time.

let's cut to the chase: what exactly is your "cause"?

Yet you do nothing here that Christ tells you to do. You never quote Jesus, but instead quote Paul. Your behavior here is in direct opposition to the teachings of Jesus in every post. So how do you think you are continuing the cause that Jesus began? He had a ministry that taught you to love, not preach. In fact, he said 'do not go unto the gentiles'. You're here every day breaking that instruction. He told you to dust off your sandals and go elsewhere if people did not believe you, yet you obsess over being in the very places he told you to leave.

You denigrate women at every turn. You have shown no mercy for widows, much less kindness.

You are the very antithesis of everything Jesus taught. So no, you're not continuing a single darn thing that Jesus taught.

<quoted text>Your question was vague and ridiculous. Why wouldn't every American be concerned about our gun problems? You can take it however you like. Your opinion is worthless to me, sockpuppy.
OK...you asked...
"If guns don't kill, why do they issue them to the military?"

I answered...
You are correct, your utopia is impossible.
Weapons, not guns, are issued to Soldiers who use them in the event they are fired upon by opposing soldiers.
Why are you so concerned about this?

Then you proceeded to answer a question with a silly question...
"Why aren't you?"

So far ALL of your questions have been vauge and ridiculous....and your answers also.
I gave you a straight forward answer...your question had NOTHING to do with the rampent gun violence in our Country but you still try to elude the facts.

If you wish to continue please respond to my original response to your original ridiculous question.

I'll help you with the guns vs weapons issue if you wish.

Too true. All of my Jewish friends absolutely HATE that term, or any other suggestion that their believes are in any way linked to christianity. They do get quite a laugh out of the term Judo-christianity...

I am not against anyone having a gun for protection. I am not against any person having guns to hunt. I am not against anyone having guns with which to shoot clay pigeons though I don't really see the necessity to kill small disks of clay. What I am against is having guns that shoot 30 rounds, rapid fire. I have never heard of a home invasion that took 30 rounds to stop the intruder or even intruders. You'd have to be an extremely lousy shot and shouldn't be trusted with a gun if you couldn't do it in 6.

There is a big bruhaha about guns for two reasons: The NRA is rolling out the scare tactics that always work on gun nuts and Congress is making a point of making the NRA happy so they can continue to have their pockets lined.

We need some restraints, but not a total ban on guns. That would be as stupid as allowing any type of weapon, including missile launchers and grenades in the hands of people like the guy who is threatening to kill the President if any gun bans are enacted. Crazy fools. If you have to show your license to get a pack of cigarettes or a beer, you should have to show your license to buy any type of firearms. What's so hard about that? I personally think you should have to have a background check to buy firearms. Those with nothing to hide won't mind and those who do will probably buy them on the black market, but it might stop someone in a fit of anger from killing someone right then. Now, I know I'm going to catch hell for my views, but I'm good with that.

And, to go further. Having armed officers in schools is the beginning of a police state. Make changes in the school buildings so that people can't just walk in, walk down a hall and start shooting. Safer buildings is the answer. Guns in schools are not. One crazy janitor or teacher armed is as dangerous as someone walking in off the street. Really, moreso. They're already there and armed with permission.
