Great column, Linda.
Yeah, I'm back. It's been a long while since I've posted. I can't even remember when that was.
The main reason I was gone so long - and this will make sense only to the few people who have read my comments - is that I discovered that I will be leavin on my mission a lot sooner than I thought. It will actually be sometime in February or January, it depends on a few things.
This means that I will not likely be posting again for even longer. I have many things to do between now and next year. I just won't have much time.
And when return, I may not stay here. As much as I've loved this state, it's a little too hot for me. At least in the summer. Winter is just perfect because I'm used to cold weather, and even though 50 degrees may seem cold here, it's nothing compared to Idaho. That's where I was born, in case you were wondering. I miss the winter snow a little too much. I may move back there.
Until I return, God bless you all! (And yes, that includes even you, Engaged Voter.) [smile]9 months ago
Enraged Voter is actually a better name, or perhaps "Enraged-Voter/Atheist-who-hates-it- when-people-mention-religion-on-newspaper-websites."
Though that second one might be a tad too long . . . . [wink]
I know, I know, I'm only ASSUMING that you're an atheist, but you've yet to deny it, and you HAVE said that God is a myth. I'm only using your own comments to back me up. The way I see it, only an atheist would ever say that God is a myth.
God is NOT a myth. He is very real, EV. Someday you will admit it. Not today, perhaps. But someday, you will (No, that is not a threat. It is merely a fact.).
And I've forgiven you for your hatemongering, EV. God bless you.10 months ago
"Unfortunately" I'm not too good at noticing my own mistakes when I type them up here; until it's too late, that is. But I'm pretty good at spotting mistakes in published books.10 months ago
Tell me something, Engaged Voter, if we really do "go back to what we were before we were born" why does it matter what we do in real life? Putting someone to death for an evil act (Timothy McVeigh comes to mind) would, according to you, "put him back into the nothingness from whence he came".
You have zero evidence, by the way, to back up this claim. I know you've said that I've yet to provide you with any evidence that God is real. But actually, I have. And so has mrconsrevative, for that matter. We may be two different people, but we sure do think alike.
"unfortunalte"? How'd I miss that goof? The word is supposed to be "unfortunately".

Yes, chuckles, unfortunalte, evil exists. People like Engaged Voter might deny it - because to deny that someone good, like God, does not exist, that's like saying that we do not exist, because we CAN'T exist without God.
As for this terrible shooting, I hope this Holmes lunatic spends the rest of his life in prsion. Solitary confinement might be a good idea. For his own safety as well as for others. I'm sure that even some of the inmates want to tear him apart for what he's done. Or we could just put him to death and be quick about it. He's spending an eternity in hell anyway - we might as well send him there now.10 months ago
"Wow! Comments from the future! (July 11 is tomorrow).
How do you guys do it? "
I think they decide ahead of time which vents get printed. It's easy enough to do.

"That's what faith is for."
For once, you've said something I agree with.
I hope it happens within Al McCoy's lifetime.10 months ago

Take your pick - we will (hopefully) have a new president.

What's wrong with Romney jetskiing? Obama has gone on more vacations in three years than Bush did in eight!
On most of Bush's "vacations" he spent his time at his ranch in Texas. He did a lot of ranch work. I don't consider that to be a real vacation. Obama has now done at least 100 rounds of golf while he's been president. That's definitely more, by far, than the number of golf rounds that Bush did.10 months ago
"EngagedVoter, who won't even consider the possibility that God exists."
You claim this is a lie? You're an atheist. You do not accept my word that God really does exist. So, that being said, what I said is 100% accurate. Unless you can say otherwise?10 months ago
