Spending the rest of your life with one person does sound a bit suffocating, doesn't it. It's not so bad really...one gets used to it. It is better than the alternative though of spending the rest your life just with yourself, cuz after a while you get really sick of yourself and you can't really do anything about it.

  some post Halloween thoughts...

It seems with each passing year the number of trick or treaters dwindles around here. I can only conclude from this that either more parents are not allowing their children out, or that we have a psycho living in our neighborhood and he's eating a lot of children.

Also I have a really difficult time with fundamentalist parents out there that are told by their ministers how pagan and evil Halloween is, so these sheep refuse to participate in any activities related to Halloween. Case in point...I work in a smallish branch office here and we had our office Halloween party yesterday. Two of the employees stayed home because of the "evil" nature of the holiday. They think if they dress up in any type of costume and participate in the party that they're in league with the devil.

I find it difficult to verbalize my distain for this silly mentality.

Mesh, the thought has crossed my mind, but I have to work with these people in close quarters. The immediate pleasure of telling both what I think would be offset with the tension it causes in the long run.

Christophe...you made a common error in your response (but it was a great come back). You assume reason and logic can be used to point out the ignorance of their belief. I could come up with 10 very sound facts to demonstrate the error/hypocrisy in their views, and it would go in one ear and out the other.

Too often in matters of faith and religion reason is given the boot. Reason leads to questions.
Questions lead to doubt.
Doubt leads to losing faith.

Since we were talking about the logic in faith, and what happens when reasoning enters into the picture, is making anyone else nauseous? Not so much that they are being sued (it's a private event- a funeral is a private event, like a wedding or a bar mitzvah, even if the guest of honor is/was a veteran), but just the nature of it. That someone think it's okay to do this.
Cancer, they should only get cancer. (i love that movie)

Hmmm, worth a guess for my enimagic Belgian bud (was taking you seriously untill the comment about Bambi's mom)

Does it involve muslims?
How about Socialists?
Or maybe a good friend just told you he's engaged to be married.
No?
How 'bout that girl you nailed last month giving you a STD?

so don't be shy. you're among friends here. If it's really sad P may even send you a hug.

No...I do not dress like that normally.
No 'stache (I shaved it off for Halloween back in the early '80's when I dressed up as Adam Ant and never grew it back).
No dewrag on my head (it really messes up the hair).
No huge gold bling hanging around the neck (sucker weighed a ton).
No open shirt with an italian wife beater undershirt showing (the ladies get too excited)

If you lived here you'd see me in faded blue Levi's, a white cotton shirt, and my black boots 95% of the time...except at bedtime when I like to wear my Winnie the Pooh pjs.

  and speaking of friday night margaritaville...

my neighbors asked me to come over last night for a visit. After some laughs and small talk he wanted to show me his vaporizor. I literally thought to myself "Why would I be interested in seeing a vaporizor?", but out of politeness and curiousity said yes.
He brought it out and needless to say it was NOT what I thought it was. I really am behind the times on some things.
I got a personal demonstration of how it works and.....well...it works real good to say the least.

Something to add to my christmas list : )

Great minds think alike

illegal? yes
Dirty? no..at least not inherently dirty..although i suppose it could lead to "dirty" things : )

This should clear up your curiosity:

*side note: I have not been, nor plan to ever become a pot head. I've seen what it does to too many friends using it daily. However on occasion it's fun and laughing stupidly over silly things untill you tear up has to be good for your soul.
I've heard rumors that it makes sex better too, but I wouldn't know about that since having sex for any reason other than procreation is against my religious beliefs.

Weisenheimer said:

AH, the verbal lashing begins:

for me, doubting is a part of having a religion. because if Christians are supposed to be all about finding the truth and God being that truth... well, leads to a lot of places to doubt. and i think anyone who claims a religion would be lying to themselves if they say they've never doubted.

if i'm liable to doubt a boyfriend's fidelity despite the fact that nothing indicates he would be anything but, why would i not doubt God?

as for doubt making my faith stronger... i dunno. in a way, it has. not directly. but every time i've doubted God, He's shown up in a mighty way. in ways i can't explain by reason or psychology or even science. and maybe that's because i don't know ALL there is to know about reason/ logic or psychology or science so that I can make up a firm argument against God... but i think i know enough that I could make a fair argument should a fair argument even be plausible. and even if i DID know everything in those fields that there is to know... i doubt that some of the events i've seen or been a part of can be satisfactorily explained by science or reason or psychology. they'd seem like excuses in comparison.

but if a solid argument should come up, i would definitely look into it.

but maybe that belief that there's no satisfactory explanation out there is the "need for religion" that's present in some but not in others. but personally i think that's full of crock because i could lead a perfectly "fine" life without believing in God... well, "fine" by most standards. i don't doubt i could be "moral" or "upstanding" or what have you. but believing in Christ isn't about the morals.

anyway, that's a whole bunch of introspection and speculation to follow. mostly just sharing my life than trying to preach-- promise. : )

and i love discussing religion so if anyone wants to get into it, feel free to write me at innocence_with_onus@yahoo.com. otherwise, taking up all the bandwidth is not a nice thing to do.

as a side note... i have nothing against Halloween and dressing up and getting candy. though i do have a slight something against the slutbag costume...

sorry if anyone dressed up as one for halloween...

i mean, CLEARLY addi did... but anyone else just in case.

tonight, going to Halloween Party II [first one was last weekend... didn't go but apparently the first one was so great, the kids are throwing another] tonight...

dressing as GRUNGE... [green and blue flannel, white long-sleeve shirt, blue genes... but sadly, no Doc Martins... just gonna have to go with the khaki-plaid converses...]

Of course you don't believe that, no liberal does.
The mainstream media is basically the "old media", such as ABC, CBS, NBC, BBC, and the like. The ones that had pretty much free reign before the advent of the internet.

Now even if I go with hif's definition of the "old media" being mainstream I still wouldn't agree that they have an agenda against christians (I know he'd include an agenda against the right wing too). I think it just is perceived by christian neo-cons that these news stations are out to get them because they see and hear reports about republicans and Bush and fanatical christians showing up at military funerals, or republican congressmen soliciting sex in men's airport restrooms, or reporting Bush's "god told me to invade Iraq" admission...and they look in disgust and point at the the tv and yell, "You see?!

How quickly and convieniently they forget that not long ago a liberal dem was in the office being racked across the coals daily for sex in the oval office by the same mainstream media.

Actually Fox has only a tiny percentage of the audience as they are a cable outlet and not a broadcast network.
They rule the cable airwaves but if you add a weeks worth of viewers for Bill O'Reilly they don't even come close to one thirty minute show of last place Katie Couric on CBS.

You say it was for sex in the oval office, but it was actually for lying to a grand jury. Big difference !

You are comparing a man who is a convicted felon, a disbarred lawyer, and an impeached president to a man that has been vilifed, compared to the worst demogogues in history and called every name in the book, but never seriously accused of any crime.

Still, the press was a helluva lot nice to Clinton than they have ever been to Bush.
And even now they are embracing his return to the Whitehouse with Shrillary. God forbid !

It's not been that great for my team either, but still, if only we had scheduled the 'Huskers for our homecoming . . . .

"Newsbusters.org Exposing Liberal Media Bias"

at least they let people know right in the title of their page what their agenda is for the site. I don't really need to say anymore.

I was including the sex scandal in its entirety, mr. literal. The monica stuff led to and included his grand jury testimony.

I will never be able to equate the stupidity of Clinton's sex scandal with Bush's incompetence. I don't really give a rat's ass if Bush has never been officially convicted of a crime yet. In my eyes (and in the eyes of millions of Americans and even more foreigners) what Bush has done is far more serious than anything Clinton did. I could actually start listing specifics here but the post would go on too long. OJ was never convicted of murder either hif...that doesn't mean his hands (gloves) don't have blood on them.

>Still, the press was a helluva lot nice to Clinton than they have ever been to Bush.

Perhaps your beloved and often defended president has brought this all on himself for his incompetance the past 7 years. Ya think?

If Louisville had played the Huskers this year it would have done wonders for their confidence. They would have left the field thinking "We are Gods!"

Will have to suffer in the present and hope that better days are in the future.

Are you saying the fact that their mission to expose liberal bias negates the fact that it exists ? Or negates any accuracies posted on their site ?
Even that bastion of liberalness, Harvard University agrees that liberal bias exists in the media. They don't really try to hide it anymore.
The New York Time admitted to liberal bias just recently on it's editorial pages.
Are you saying the links on my post are not accurate because they appear on Newsbusters ?

to clarify what I'm saying : )

I am not saying if a site has a liberal or conservative bias then anything included in said site is automatically false.
I am saying that if you rely on sites like that for unquestionable "facts" on political issues then you're not being real diligent in learning the truth about political issues. That goes for liberal as well as right wing sites.
So if your link brought me to a site titled "newsbuster.org Exposing Liberal and Conservative Media Bias" I'd put a little more stock in the validity of it's content.
When I visit left-wing sites I always keep in mind the political slant given. So I don't take every written word for gospel truth necessarily..I try to balance it with information from all other media outlets and come to a conclusion about how accurate it is based on the totality of information available.
My main gripe with many neo-cons is that I don't think (my opinion) that they have a habit of doing this. They'll read an article on some right-wing site and take it in hook, line, and sinker...because it's in print, or it's online, or it's on tv, so it must be true because I agree with them.

I understand this is setting me up once again for having an "eleitist" attitude (I'll have to bear that cross), but generally speaking, I find that the more educated one is the more that person can see through the falsehoods presented by this administration. The gullible weaker minded people tend to take everything this prez and his cronies say as truth, with little to no analysis of the bullshit they present as factual.

I saw throught the BS coming from Clinton when he was in office. I see no reason you and others can't see through the BS Bush has been feeding the world.

But conservative media bias, such as it is, does not need exposing. They pretty much lay their cards on the table, unlike say, NBC or CBS who claim no bias exists.

  Lol hif


Seriously, you know I'm not a socialist (which is what liberals in america are, I don't get how they are entitled to the name of liberals at all) but addi has a point when he says that the problem is not that that specific site exposes "liberal" media bias, the problem is that if you expand on that it does not at the same time expose republican bias and that if you only get your information from sites like that you see through the liberal bias but not through the conservative.

To say that there is socialist media bias is true (you should see how it is over here), but to say that there is no conservative media bias to be spotted on the vast plains of media land is flat out bullshit as well.

I'm not saying it doesn't exist, what I said was that those that are skewed towards the right don't try to pass it off as unbiased reporting as the BBC or CBS will do.
You will never see Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity try to say they don't lean right. But you will certainly see Katie Couric and her ilk try to pass themselves off as unbiased as they deliver their liberal agenda.
That's all I'm saying.

  I thought I would use an inactive thread for this question rather than creating a new one... excuse my extreme disversion from the topic at hand.
Meshomania, do you still have my email address or anything? If not may I have your's, or your MSN, yahoo, AIM, or ICQ if you have any of them that you currently use? Haven't talked to you in a long time and I actually have a question for ya.

And just so I'm a little on topic, I was Zorro. But I didn't go anywhere exciting.
