Good morning sweet soo!
I rarely do this but since a new pope takes over I will disclose a small bit of my frustration with the catholic denomination. I tried to make it work I really tried. Studied the bible till I was blue in the faith and (no my boomerang never came back) focused on the new testament. you know the opening line "I have come to show you a better way" My criticism is not with the teachings of the "man christ" but how the Vatican applies those teachings to themselves. They don't - They have both feet planted firmly in this world and operate based on increasing the three "P's" Power, Possession and Prestige." The exact opposite of the teachings, of the christ. So if I was ever to go back they would have cleaned house of all the damage thru sexual abuse thats been perpetrated on our children made amends. Sell off all their priceless palace riches and the palace itself. Take the proceeds and feed the poor. Treat all as equals, no exclusions (especially women). Throw out celibacy. If you want to know why your churches are empty in the north america, people now think for themselves and the catholic church is so unplugged and irrelevant to the ordinary lay person it does not meet their spiritual needs.
Look at your new young priests! Social misfits who can't make it anywhere else. give me a call when you get that straightened out.

Skipper the Church (any denomination) is simply like man himself (herself) full of flaws and also sin. I don't suggest anyone ignore that part of it but there is good in everything. One has to have faith and do the best they can in the alloted time. Be aware of the sin and do ones best to avoid being dragged down by it. If we let the sinfull side of things that happen in and around the Church break us away from all the good then we are the losers. I'm likely the last guy to preach but that's the way I see it. Have a great day all

I'm with Trudeau to a certain extent on that point. If I were in the position and wanted to destroy/abolish the Senate, I would choose a bunch of imbeciles to sit on said board, like Harper did. I would then just sit back and watch it implode. Public opinion has now hit a new low with the shenanigans of Senators. It would be a simple achievement for the PM to eradicate, if not just reform the senate now.
The question is this: is Harper smart enough to set the stage the way he has. There is no shortage of imbeciles surrounding him, mostly conservative, but not all. Was it premeditated or did he just by chance choose scoundrels.
Like Rick Mercer said. 'I guess there are no honest people left in PEI who Harper could find to take the position. Bur blaming Mike Duffy for abusing the senate is like blaming a horse for taking a whiz in the street.'

I mean really...are you an idiot or just an idiot.

Yes Americans by a majority want stricter gun laws, (you know like the ones in Chicago - murder capital of the U.S.) but they do not support bans of weapons.
Locks only keep the honest people out.

As you have said I'm here to *iss off righties but it really is far too easy. Also are you telling me that it isn't so much fun getting it as it is dishing it out? Wow what a surprise and here I thought you would be having a great time.

Dutch Touch...when I first read that post about degrees I thought - oh crap. Who cares?
Like most of us I have learned to listen to the person not the CV.
As my dad said - just because you're educated doesn't mean you're smart.
One of my heroes is Eric Hoffer - a longshoreman and a philosopher.
You and your husband are delightful lovely people and it was wonderful to see you both again.
Sitting down at my end of the table I was overwhelmed by the wit, wisdom and life experiences of the folks there.
I look forward to seeing you both at the Summit Cruise. SQ is going to wear his bikini and sing Don Ho tunes.

hmmmmmm, well now, if you hadn't gone and gotten every one all p'sd off, and acting like a bunch of bully brats.
I don't think either one you would have such a fear that someone would want to seriously hurt either one of you ........ do you ?
What happened to have to arm yourself to the teeth and have a fear of something bad happening ?

Pretty ridiculous huh ! About as stupid as the comments you've been making today.
As far as a ccw permit......I'm thinking you must attend at the Rod and Gun Club and that permit allows you to transport that gun for an hour , to the club, and you get an hour after you leave the club to get it home.
Unless, you are ssmps, opp, you wouldn't be able to take that gun anywhere with you.

you say I am wrong. This merely proves your igniorance of a subject you should be on top of.
Here is a quote from the University of Florida:
"Designed for working pharmacists, the flexible Working Professional Doctor of Pharmacy program will allow you to complete your Pharm.D. requirements in as few as three years while you work so you can maintain your work, family, and personal obligations."
You , of course, had been talking about 4 years after some Mickey Mouse 2 year diploma.
I had said 3 years after a Bph or whatever the Bachelor of Pharmacy is. You see, In Canada we don't have Associate degrees ..only real ones.
Do you demand that those about you call you Doctor? I know what I would call you.
Voiceofreason 3/14/2013 9:35:19 PM Report
I actually have a BSc in chemistry as well redranger, but what's your point?

Also, as far as the "mickey mouse" degree goes, why don't you look up the prerequisites for any Pharmacy program in the States. I'm sure there's nothing Disney-ish about it.
The University of Toronto TRIED to get certified for a 4 year Pharm.D program. They failed several times. The USA leads Pharmacy for a reason. Globally, Canadian degrees are about as good as an A+ on a finger painting in JK.

From Grump to V o R;
"Then again you are likely one of those boys who just wants to sleep with your big gun."
Actually, sleeping with your big gun is a really effective hunting technique. I bagged two moose from my stand that way. My brothers still refer to the 'incidents' as the hunting accidents of '89 and '91. Pure jealousy as they are are the ones that taught me their entirely, time tested and successful 'technique'. :)

It's my guess that that your stomach does not produce moose scaring noises while you are sleeping.

I cave Sparks. My gut gurgling that day certainly delayed our success by about seven days in '88 by my recollection. Crap. But we all still enjoyed many naps, reading westerns, whilst in the company of our respective big gun on our respective stands in the interim. Success again, and so much fun.
