  1. This explains all the ghost hunting shows on television. It's obviously training for census takers.
  2. Part 2 - the whole thing was a hoax and hopefully both parents will get some jail time. This is ridiculous!
  3. 1. Even if the question was asked, I'd be interested to see how successful they are at getting people to admit they're illegal.2. I'm surprised that the Republicans would want to know how many illegals are here since that would show how abysmal the border protection has been under Bush.3. Scratch that, since the illegals will surely be undercounted, perhaps they'll use it to show how good the border protection has been under Bush Okay I'm officially confused which is my usual state,lol.
  4. Elk is pretty close to beef. Not as gamey as venison can sometimes be. With venison it depends a great deal on the deer's diet. Elk tend to be grazers and therefore taste more like beef. Deer tend to be browsers which accounts for venison sometimes being gamey if their diet is mostly trees & brush. Beer is greasy in my opinion. I don't care for it. Only reason my hubby would shoot a bear is if it were heading his way to attack him or was attacking him. There are some that like bear meat. Just isn't our thing so he doesn't hunt it. We eat what he kills (whenever he kills anything,l
  5. My husband and his dad are out hunting elk this week. And they do practice target shooting before they go. But he also carries a handgun in the woods as well. 1. you never know when you might be faced with a situation where a rifle isn't the best option to use in order to save your life (thinking bears which seem to have higher populations this year) and 2. if you wound an animal, you want to be able to put it out of it's misery quickly and humanely. And yes we do eat the meat. I won't say that he hunts for only for meat because anyone who tells you that is a liar. If I were to figure ou
  6. So there will be a whole new generation of Nascar fans in Canada,lol?
  7. Bringing the subject back to the original subject, I find it funny that right after Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize, we attacked the moon and suffered 0 casualties.
  8. I think Cain was referring to the claim by BG that the Republicans would behave with more class than the Democrats did. Surprise surprise, they haven't. I think both of them were more than a bit naive to think that it would be otherwise.
  9. Trust BG to come up with a brand new description of Brvheart,lol. I assume it's a combo between bore and bother. Makes perfect sense to me . (jk Brvheart but couldn't resist)
  10. You all can pray that what comes out of the Finance Committee will be a better bill than what went in. It might even be okay. Not great mind you but okay. Max Baucus has gotten an earful from the people of Montana. And if there's one thing he's good at it's keeping the people of Montana happy.
  11. Not going to happen with me Spademan. I've seen God move in my life too much to doubt His existence. And I've seen what would have been the result of some of my desires had He given them to me and I wouldn't have wanted it that way once I got sight of the bigger picture. Having seen that in my past, I can trust Him with my future. Again it doesn't mean I just sit back and let God do it. I do what I can within my human ability. But if I find myself blocked at every juncture from something that I desire then I know there's something wrong with it and try moving in another direction. But s
  12. I've seen in my life too many times where my will would have been the wrong choice to discount God's will in all this. I still pray and it could well be that the only way that Glenn will come to believe in Jesus is for him to have to go through this. And I'd rather he go through this and become a believer than healed and remain a non-believer. God knows when it's time for him to die just as He does with all of us. And that time won't come any sooner or later than it's appointed time. Does this mean I don't want him to fight the disease with every tool available to us? Hell, no! He's act
  13. I wish I could take comfort in that brvheart but sadly he's not a believer so I guess my prayer would be that he'd become one before God takes him. But God is far wiser than I am so I'll trust in His will regardless. As for Suited's comment, I considered the source and dismissed it as coming from one who couldn't concieve of walking a mile in my shoes.
  14. Trip went well. We'll not know the results of the tests for probably close to 2 weeks. If those meet the criteria of the study then he will go in for a left heart catheter (I'm not sure what this is supposed to show) which if that's good he'll be enrolled the following day. So 2 to 3 weeks from now we'll know if he's going to be accepted. Then he has a 2 in 3 chance of getting the actual medication. Thank you all for your prayers, good wishes and blessings. They're much appreciated.
  15. You don't have enough current fodder on Obama to discuss that you have to dig out a year old thread and revive it? Com'on 85, you're better than that.
  16. I find Henry to be one of the more intelligent posters on this forum. I've learned a great deal from him and he's willing to learn from others which makes him a wise man in my opinion. Sorry Henry if that's an insult to you,lol.
  17. Thank you Sal. This is what I've been trying to say for some time. Every time either side tilts at windmills and people discover they're really just windmills it makes it less likely that they'll be able to rally people to their cause when they have to fight a real dragon. It's a concept that seems to be foreign to the more partisan members of the Republican Party and many people on this forum.
  18. My husband and I are making a trip to Seattle for him to be tested to get into clinical trials for a new drug to treat his Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Not all of you probably know but the condition is terminal so we are hoping that 1. He gets into the trial. 2. He is one of the lucky ones to get the drug. 3. That it will do what it's supposed to do which is slow down the progression of this horrid disease. Anyway, I know that there are people on here that pray and I'd appreciate your prayers. The rest of you, well you don't believe in prayer anyway so my asking won't do you any harm.P.S.
  19. I wouldn't have any problem with the President of the United States addressing school children. And as for keeping politics out of schools, I'd like to see more IN schools. But probably not the way you all would think. For one thing, I'd like to see a requirement to take a speech/debate class for every student. Maybe they wouldn't all come out as public speakers but they might at least be able to get up in front of a group of people and not make fools of themselves. I don't know how many times, my kid's speech/debate background gave them a leg up on the competition in the job market. And
  20. Honey, this is the finest looking American car around:
  21. Not exactly what I was trying to say though in some respects yeah I guess. What I was trying to say was at the elementary age level, parents have a great deal more influence than Presidents or teachers. When I first became a Christian, there was a group in one of the churches in the area that went around looking for EVERY nitpicking thing they could find that could possibly be construed as evil particularly in the schools. There was never any innocent activity that they didn't find some way to twist into something that was subverting Christianity. I got sick of it and of them. So what I'm
  22. I'm sorry but at the elementary school age, parents have a great deal more to do with shaping children's world views than the President or the teachers to regardless of how pretty a speech they make or what exercises they do in school. To believe that somehow doing a educational exercise related to a Presidential speech is somehow going to radically change a child's viewpoint is bordering on the ridiculous. Com'on people, think about it. Do you even remember any Presidential speeches you heard in elementary school? Do you actually even remember any of the questions your teachers asked afte
  23. I'm surprised that religious private schools don't have some interest in this case. Seems to me that the same criteria would apply wouldn't it? I'd say that their reasoning is pretty far from constitutional if you look at it from that perspective.
  24. No for some reason that's totally inexplicable to me, GM decided to keep Buick (which I've not seen a car I want yet) and dispose of the only American car that I actually considered buying - the Pontiac Grand Prix and the Pontiac Grand AM. Both were classy cars that had great lines and were very comfortable (Grand AM not so much in the back seat). Sadly Pontiac turned from the Grand AM to the really sucky G-6 which hurt. Only other American car that I've seen that I still want now is the Shelby Mustang GT.
  25. Sounds almost as convoluted as some of the insurance policies. So tell me MK, Cainbrain or whoever what I'm getting wrong from this. No new insurance enrollments once the public option is in place? No changes in any thing in the insurance policy allowed (doesn't exactly say that you'll have to go with the public option but where else do you go?)? Wondering why even if you agree to the changes, you don't have a say in it if this is the case? Now as to the premium increases, what I get from it is that the insurance company can't increase the premiums for one company without increasing them f
