"I have a license to carry and military training, but even with both there is little training that can prepare you for an ambush. In effect these attacks are ambushes, which by their very nature are meant to be surprising and unknown."

CASTING STONES IN GLASS HOUSES

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?-- Matthew 7:1-3King James Version (KJV)“Let Him Who is Without Sin Cast the First Stone,” is a well-known quotation from the Bible. In many neighborhoods, the equivalent advice was “people who live in glass houses should not…See More

"I'd agree as long as police were also required to disarm. I was thinking about this in a local store with a 'no weapons' sign posted, but a cop (not on call) walking around fully armed. "

"I was amazed that Cruz liked Trump's speech regarding Mexicans. I guess his Cuban heritage removes him from being a Latino. Still, he is a dufus of the highest order. Between Perry and Cruz they could generate enough brain power to light match."

When the behavior and belief of Christians in the United States, an economic theory developed by Italian economist Vilfredo Paretto may hold the answer as to why in a majority Christian nation adherence basic dogma of their philosophy seem unrecognizable.

Transformer, Transition—Transgender

Posted on July 9, 2015 at 12:32am 13 Comments

Growing up in a medical household certainly had its advantages as my brother, sisters and I had opportunities many kids never had chance to do. We were up to date, well educated and consciously modest because of those things. Yes, coming from that medical household also…

OH, Grow Up! Marriage Hypocrites

Posted on June 30, 2015 at 4:00pm 3 Comments

It is past time for American religionist to grow up. For decades, Christians used the  Bible to force their religion on others to conform to their beliefs while egregiously failing to follow their own beliefs, which they want to force on others. The US Supreme Court's decision to approve gay marriage across the…

Thanks, Donald, for the link to the music. I like the way you phrased the music appreciation via education. I always seek out your posts.

Thanks, Donald.  Needless to say, I'm the guy with the Brooklyn accent.  Rev Jones is the cowboy and the pompous bombastic asshole is the imam.

Hi Don,

You said you would be interested in seeing what I come up with in reading about delayed food allergies.  I just posted a blog post on the likely mechanism of my kind of delayed food allergies.  With tons of references!
