PT, I will just ignore the nasty remark's. Al knows I care and that is all that is important. Just because they don't believe doesn't mean I can't.
Al, As I told my mother in law when she was upset over her prayers not being answered when her daughter was dying, " Your prayer was answered, just not what you wanted." Your prayer was answered for the better, Your life on earth is not finished. All you atheist , leave this one alone, this is between Alprova and me. Praying for you Al.
schizka, You know nothing about me, I was raised in the north and was in my 20's in the 60's. I remember all that went on with Dr. King and his death. those of us in the north agreed with his actions because he was peaceful and truly believed change could come from peaceful means. So no I would not say the same about Dr. King. You assume and you know what that means.
I am well aware Mandela was in prison in the 80's but the group he was head of was responsible for the acts of the 80's. Mandela also refused to condemn the violence. I do not deny he was a great man, but a stretch to compare him to Gandhi or for that matter Dr Martin Luther King.
Nucanuck, Mandela started out non violent then turned terrorist . He was the head of the terrorist side of the ANC. He was also part of the communist party of South Africa. He plead guilty to 156 terrorist acts in the 80's. Women and children were killed in those acts.
I have to agree with you, Starting Oct 1st is totally ridiculous. Same goes for all the other dates started 3 months ahead of time, valentines day, Halloween, and Easter.
Ike, so MT is right, It is all about $$$$$$ for some not Christ birth. Just a reason to get and give presents. I agree that Christmas has become commercial and the meaning of Christmas has been lost. Also I agree Dec. 25 is not the actual date, It is just the date picked to celebrate the birth.
So Ike, I take it you don't object to Christmas trees and Christmas music like some atheist do.
I really get a chuckle out of some atheist, as they get a chuckle out of us Christians.
Ike, do you by presents for family and friends, this time of the year? If so , why?
Bennett's war on Christmas or should I say war on Christians. I still don't understand why you atheist are so against Christians. I don't care that you don't believe so why should you care that I do. I guess it is just something to argue about.
SS recipients pay a part from their checks for medicare. Would welfare recipients have to pay from their checks also in a single payer form of health care? Just wondering what you libs think. I know some SS recipient that only get700 or 800 amonth and have to pay at least 104 out of that check for their medicare.
Ike, we were in Carrabelle and stayed at the moorings Friday. Looked for your boat at different marinas but didn;t see it. Where is your boat?
