T'would seem Scotty is a student of Lincoln, and would rather"...remain silent and be thought of as a fool...." (or chicken), as the case may be..unlike some here, who would much rather, "...open their mouths and remove all doubt...."
There are always two sides to every story and I am sure Scotty's will come out eventually and will become clear to one and all, one way or the other..Woody
First..given Scottys background and business acumen, I would have thought he'd have 'shown up' better than he has to this point..still I am big fan.
Secondly..it should have dawned on me a while ago that Andrew is not only a Bible scholar but "as pure as the driven snow" as well. It says right there in "The Good Book", "...he that is without sin cast the first stone...." I've never met a sin-less person before Andrew, excuse me if I stand and gawk a little..Woody
Sorry folks, and with all due respect to Clay, but Tennessee isn't all that special..in fact, you could insert almost any other state capitol and our nation's capitol legislative bodies and still use the "Murphy's Law" logo.
Face it..conservatives nationwide have made it their goal in life to undo any laws considered to be liberal in nature and liberals have countered with their own brand of obstinance, so much so that only bills of a weakened or weird nature have been able to survive.
All that is left to be said at this point is I feel sorry for those who truly believe in an 'afterlife' as well as those that should, because I honestly believe they are all in for a good 'butt whoopin' if they should ever encounter any of ""The Framers" face-to-face..Woody
If Romney will support the rights of women as well as men..fine. If he can see his way clear to represent those of without too much means in addition to those with more than enough..this will be good.
However, if he really wants to win the election, not to mention set aside a place for himself in the history books, Romney will see that it is his, and this country's, best interest to be a president to "The Left" as well as "The Right". Of course, bringing them closer together is likely an impossibility but would be the 'cherry' on top..Woody
Finally..something to 'sneeze at'..Woody
Ahh yes..The Tennessee Legislature..otherwise known as the "Road Kill Legislature" or even "The Just when I think I've Heard it All Legislature." I know there have been some who thought 'they' should be randomly drug-tested, as well as some others who partake of tax dollars, but I have long been an advocate of occasional legislature intelligence testing.
The reason being..it would appear as though the 'air in there' is so stagnant that legislators must losing active brains the longer they stay in office. My apologies to Clay for not staying 'on topic' today, but at least I got it off my chest..Happy Easter..Woody
God don't make no junk..now having said that it is entirely possible He did create a few people here and there who have decidedly gone off on pathways of their own choosing.
Don't get me wrong, I have to believe in dinosaurs and the evolution of certain species of humanoids..there is too much evidence to ignore. However, if there are truly people out there who can look around them, and I mean really look with an open mind, and still honestly confess they believe all of this "just happened", they need a keeper.
Believe in whatever deity you wish (Atheists, you're on your own)but this world of endless wonders, not to mention the universe(s) beyond,did not "just happen."..Woody
I can't wait to find out what the other three senses (touch, taste and hear) have been up to.
Actually, I can empathize with your Moccasin Bend problem..we had a similar problem where I live quite a while back..and even after it was rectified it haunted local officials for quite some time.
This would be a great time for someone to step up and be a hero by solving this problem..instead of the usual deflecting blame onto someone else..Woody
Shifarobe..you are proof positive Abe Lincoln was right.."You can remain silent and be thought a fool, or open your mouth and remove all doubt."
I would ask..when will people like you learn..but then I remember who and what I am talking to and about..Woody
Let me see..oh yeah..it is clearly spelled out..and I believe in RED letters, "...render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar's and unto GOD that which is God's...." It would seem not even Santorum, nor any of the rest, could question that..Woody
