Talking about Target stores

  1. I think you are confusing those who hide behind a bible they don't
    believe in, just to get tax exempt status, to pull their con jobs and
    spread hatred, with people who truly believe what they have read.

    Groups like this one, run by Fred Phelps:
    http://www.godhatesfags.com/ that was disrupting funerals of soldiers
    killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and claiming that the soldiers deserved
    to die because they should have been at home rounding up all the
    homosexuals. The last I heard, 18 states had passed laws making it
    illegal to disrupt a military funeral.

    This is a cult, or mob, hiding behind religious freedom to spread
    their hatred.

    OTOH, the people at a small church near me almost lost their building
    by over extending themselves financially to help Katrina victims to
    relocate to our area. It was so bad that several members took out
    second mortgages on their homes to save their church. These people had
    some of the Katrina victims as house guests, and helped others find
    apartments, or mobile homes to rent, and spent weeks making sure they
    found jobs. They also claim the tittle of Fundamentalist. All
    "Fundamentalist" really means is that you take the entire bible, not
    just what fits your needs.

    The four tornados that tore through the Central Florida area
    yesterday? Two churches opened their doors as free public shelters
    within hours.

    Today, the Red Cross has stepped in and are taking full credit for
    all of the aid the more than 400 people are receiving, even though the
    churches are footing the bills to house them. Mobile homes, apartment
    buildings and site built homes were all damaged or destroyed, to the
    extent they are talking federal aid. The area was already hard to find
    homes for sale or any place to rent, so it will be a while before things
    will be anything close to normal for these people. The miracle is that
    not one person died.

    Somehow, that doesn't surprise me that the "RED CROSS" is "trying" to take
    credit. They can be a pushy bunch. I've been close enough to them - in
    training and so on - but after getting a good taste of what they really
    wanted - I said to hell with it. They couldn't pay me enough to take their
    bull shit.

    They're not "all that" - as they would like to think. I don't care if I was
    burned out - I can do better off without their charity. They don't offer
    crap - so far as I am concerned.
     

  3. They had a food truck near here a couple years ago, after one of the
    hurricanes. The hot meals they promised were usually several hours late,
    and there was no gasoline availible, so you couldn't afford multiple
    trips. I spent up to four hours waiting for a singfle hot meal each day.
    The rest of the time I lived on Peanut butter and crackers, or cans of
    SPAM. Prior to that, I spent close to 10 days in an emergency county
    shelter for the disabled at a local high school. The food was better,
    but it was all high in calories from sugar and high in fats. I'm
    diabetic, and have high blood pressure, so between the two of them had
    me quite ill for months as I readjusted to my normal diet, and air
    condtioning. Its time to use up all my emergency rations, and start
    restocking for next hurricane season. :(

    Yea, they are profiteering scum. Even back in WWII they got people in
    the states to make gloves to give to the troops, which they then SOLD to
    the troops.

    Learn your world history. The Muslims preserved ancient
    knowledge while the Christians were burning and destroying
    everything. Question their moral authority if you want,
    but not their literacy.
     

  6. Learn current events: They don't teach their kids about the world,
    they teach hatred. Hatred grows best with illiteracy.

    Their literacy IS teaching HATRED. Wake up and smell the Holly Berries!
    BINGO!
     

  8. Yes, DAV #85 does play bingo, Saturday mornings and Monday evenings.

    OK - so to keep in the theme - you Michael - are a real card! :)

    Our Fire Department has bingo one night a week. I don't know HOW - anyone
    can sit for that length of time! Man oh man - my butt would be sore as hell.
    I work it and I sit in a leather chair and even at that - I have a time of
    it sitting that long. I have to get up several times just to keep my butt
    from going numb.

  10. Lou, my sense of humor is real, and it has served me well over the
    last six years as my job disappeared, my health failed, and I was
    declared 100% disabled. Without it, I probably wouldn't still be here.

    As far as working the Bingo games, I haven't been well enough, but I
    do some other things for the group. I know what you mean about sitting.
    I have circulation problems in my legs I can't stand very long, and I
    can't sit very long. It drives other people crazy, but what can you do?

    I was called up for Jury duty recently. The summons state that they
    required a letter from your doctor to be excused, or that you are 65 or
    older. My VA doctor refused to sign, because I wasn't scheduled to be in
    the hospital on that day.

    I dragged myself to the courthouse before daylight, where the clerk
    told me, "Oh, you only need to show us papers that you are 100% disabled
    before the day you are to appear, and you are excused for life!" I was
    excused about lunchtime, after countless trips around the waiting room,
    and trips to the rest room, because of the high blood pressure medicine,
    and diuretics. What a strange day. :(

    Man, that had to suck!
     
  12. Explains the fundies and their enthusiasm for home-schooling.
     

  13. I used to climb two way radio towers, work on 60 foot ladders wile
    installing commercial sound systems, and in a work basket over high lift
    forklifts. When I was young, I delivered those '60s and '70s console
    color TVs by myself, sometimes to a third floor, without an elevator. I
    worked about 12 hours a day, 8 for pay, and 4 or more in my home shop.
    I never planned to retire. Instead, I was planning to keep working in my
    1200square foot home shop by repairing antique electronics, and doing
    contract assembly work building prototypes for a number of small
    companies. That ended with the long term illness, and having most of my
    shop equipment destroyed by two years of hurricanes doing damage to the
    shop building.

    Then, almost two years ago I got that letter from the VA, awarding my
    100% disability. Let me tell you that it was a real blow to read the
    line, "It is obvious that due the the list of medical problems, and his
    age, this person will never be able to work again." Talk about mixed
    blessings. Even though it would pay most of the bills, it was one of the
    worst days of my life. That's why I crack all of the bad jokes, and
    some days I have almost zero tolerance for the idiots and trolls.

    Totally understandable. Well, I wish you all the best - and keep doing what
    ever it is you're doing.

  15. Thanks. You do the same. :)
