I'm glad my parents stop forcing church on us by the age of 10. When they realized there were more sinners in church than out, and most everyone was fornicating with someone husband or wife. And that was only when they weren't chasing the young fresh female meat around in the church basement. Isn't fornication a sin in the eyes of the Christian bible?
Sounds like envy, riverman. LOL
Coincidental, how much cops and criminals have in common these days, LaughingBoy?
Cops beat schizophrenic homeless man, Kelly Thomas, to death as he pleads for his life and call out to his father for help. July 5, 2011, Fullerton, California. Like art imitates life? Crooks imitating cops or is it cops imitating crooks? :/
Ken and soakya, No thanks to either of you. You're offer is facetious and lacks sincerity. You're like the ones who volunteer at those places yet hold the homeless in much disdain. I already belong to a group that buy in bulk and use our purchases to take out to the homeless. We've even been able to find housing, jobs and other needs to help stabilize them. We have also helped those who need, to get transportation, pay off court fines, and pay at least 6 months for car insurance on the transportation we've purchased for them.
Ken, would any of those shelters you named include the one where food was being withheld, even from homeless children, until at lease one person came forward to be saved?
I went with a family member to donate some items to a local place that caters to the homeless. They were so hateful to the homeless people coming in to their store where the homeless presented some kind of ticket to get free items. Such as underwear, hygiene products and items of other clothing. It got me to thinking about considering opening my own place, where I know I would treat the homeless with kindness and respect.
jt63Rhm said: What about the 3 Oklahoma teens that shot a college baseball player in the back while jogging? without reading the details can you imagine the most significant detail of the crime?
What detail, jt? The fact that at least one of the teens is white(your favorite color)? The college baseball player is from Australia?
Take gentrification off the table and these troubling communities will start to heal on their own. It took over 20 years, where plans to gentrify first began and arrive at this point. Therefore, it ill likely take a while to see any improvements, but the seeds for improvement will be take root and begin to sprout. No additional police, no special prosecutors, no longer jail sentences. All which are part of the cause/effect of everything that's taken place. Just re-investing and believing in the spirit and potential of the human experience. All humans.
While the public is looking for safety in hiring more police, the police are looking for job security, promotions, hefty retirements. That is not the solution. That's gravely a part of the problem. As problems begin to be manufactured to keep the funding rolling in.
Unfortunately Mr. Bernard, far too many southerners are still angry over the loss of the Civil War. That's really the backbone and driving force behind racial hatred.
Fast 'n Furious, Benghazi, IRS targeting conservative groups, which turns out IRS was targeting everyone, and the one long org. denied tax exempt status was actually a liberal org.
You are tragically late, Mr. Smith. All your accusations have already been debunked. Fast 'n Furious was OPERATION WIDE RECEIVE, started under Bush, with a name change. When Holder was made aware it was still ongoing, he actually took steps to end it.
The fact that right wing conservatives have said Benghazi was worst than Watergate prove their ignorance on national and world issues. It is seriously doubtful if many of them could even find Benghazi on the map. I think they just like saying the name. They think it makes them appear intelligent.
The thing that's both tragically funny but ignorant about the right is they know very little to nothing about Watergate when trying to compare it to Benghazi. Such obvious ignorance, especially in the wrong hands, is quite disturbing. Watergate was about much much more than a break-in at Democratic headquarters.
See prospect . org, title: No, Conservatives, Benghazi Is Not Watergate
P. Waldman, seim-quote: "Watergate wasn't just a break-in. It was a panoply of government malfeance and outright criminality the likes of which America has never before witnessed, and hopefully will never again have to witness."
^5 Ike. It's the understanding that in exchange for being allowed to build on and develop what's considered wetlands or marshland where nature and wildlife have always inhabited, a portion of that land was suppose to be set aside for just that purpose. Allowing the natural inhabitants to remain there or migrate back and forth as they always have. That means, Chattanooga State are the trespassers who illegally killed off the natural inhabitants. Sort of like what settlers did to the original Native-American peoples.
Why do civilize man still seek to destroy and kill that which he feels he can't control, or must control? It would be interesting to know what methods were used to euthanize those helpless birds.
