They say Donald Trump is a Racist and a Sexist. Anyone who voted for or supports Donald Trump has voted for or is supporting Racism and Sexism. Is Donald Trump actually a Racist and a Sexist, no one has the right to judge. Who is actually the sexist and the racist and who is actually spreading the hate? I’ll tell you a truth, you can choose to listen or disregard, but what you say about others is the truth about yourself.
The Duggar Family – I haven’t read all the stories nor watched any videos and I’m not going to. This is what happens when you make your private life public. But just because this happens and what do you expect from reality tv. I think its bull shit.
If 19 and counting were all atheists and we found out about this, it would be hush hush, their getting counseling, its none of our business, etc, etc. But because they are religious, and very religious. Believing that homosexuality is a sin and a man is a man and a woman is a woman. We’re going to rip them a new one. We’re judging them because of what they believe not for what they do. Tell me I’m wrong. I’ve had things done to me when I was kid by other kids, because kids are naturally curious. I don’t need to talk about it, I don’t need counseling. Things happen, it’s not a perfect world, we go on. I want to know how many of you out there had a perfect life, trust me, you’re a rare person.
18 and counting are really suffering because of one person and that’s just wrong, and it’s the public that’s making that happen.
Everyone get off your high horses and stop being so judgmental. There are far worse problems in this world. Much much worse problems we can all be talking about.
All I got to say is, there is nothing to see here, go on. But if you can’t, it’s because we just kick em when their up, kick em when their down.
Most people think they know what they want and believe that they dislike this or that. But the truth is many are surprised by their own feelings and sometimes even ashamed when they should be celebrating. Because we have allowed what we have been taught to be a mask that sometimes we can’t even see through much less others. Know truth and let your heart be your guide.
Grace is a feeling a person feels when they are forgiven.
Why do we all need grace, because we all feel shame.
You may not realize this because you were born that way and may have never thought of it.
Animals don’t need grace because they don’t feel shame like we do.
We are a strange animal. The book of Genesis explains why we are a strange animal. Some take this book literally, I do not.
I do not understand the science behind our creation and do not pretend to know. Genesis is simply an attempt to explain.
First God breathed into us the breath of life and he did not do this with any other animal which set us apart from other animals which could explain why it is we managed to subdue the whole earth.
Second, we are ashamed of our nakedness. The only animal on this earth who acts like this. Who hides them self from each other out of shame. Not just our nakedness, but even our compassion we are ashamed of. For instance. We will pet a strange dog or cat but we dare not pet a strange person. You may not have thought about this because you have been like this most of your life and it may not seem odd to you. But if you think about it, it is strange behavior.
Because we carry this shame around with us, we require grace in order to be saved from it.
This is the Grace that Jesus offers us freely if we choose to accept. Before he died, his last words, “forgive them for they know what they do.” and “it is finished.” Because of this we are offered grace. I don’t exactly know how it works and don’t claim to know. There are those who claim they understand, but I don’t think they do because they certainly don’t act like they understand.
So there you have it, the meaning of grace
Yesterday I had my colonoscopy and it really isn’t that bad. They put you to sleep, you don’t know nothing and coming to my wife said I was really funny, I kept making her laugh. Seeing I’m not really a funny person, I find that interesting. They were playing rock n roll music in the surgery room and I was explaining that this was do to my long hair.
But anyways, they found a large polyp that they could not remove without surgery which will be scheduled next week and everyone is so scared that it is cancer.
My wife gave me a big hug before I went to bed and her daughters and my sisters are concerned.
Now this is the weird part, if they told me I had cancer I would die soon, I would be so happy. I remember before I was born, I was in heaven and I didn’t want to leave, but was told I had to and I so badly want to go back there. But my wife, though this has not yet been foretold is already worked up over the possibility. I don’t want anybody to be hurt. She is older than me, she should go before me, that’s the way it should be.
But if anybody tells you that heaven is boring. Let me try to explain, when you get high you are trying to experience heaven. When you fall in love you are experiencing heaven. Most people have been there, I just seem to be the only one who remembers. All of our life on this earth is trying to get back there. That’s what we do.
Heaven is real. Don’t believe anything else and keep reaching for it.
|Dear Mr. Harkness,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts about net neutrality. I appreciate the time you took to contact me.
“Net neutrality” refers to the concept that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all data traveling over their network equally in terms of hosting rates and speeds of service. In 2005, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced that broadband Internet service is not a “telecommunications service,” and therefore not subject to existing FCC rules that prohibit variations in rates and services.
Despite ruling that ISPs are not telecom companies, the FCC adopted rules to regulate how ISPs handle Internet traffic. These “open internet” rules banned broadband providers from blocking or discriminating against online content based on user, source, or application. In Verizon v. FCC, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down these FCC rules that regulate ISPs’ data. Verizon successfully claimed that the FCC lacked jurisdiction over broadband service.
The FCC continues to fight to make the Internet a public utility and subject to government regulation. On Feb. 26, 2015, the full commission will vote on a new proposal to reclassify the Internet as a telecommunication service, which would allow FCC oversight, instead of an information service. The FCC is proposing to regulate ISPs under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. Title II authorizes the FCC to regulate telecommunications carriers, despite prior rulings stating that ISPs are not “telecommunication services.”
I believe that regulating the Internet is no different than regulating the press; both are protected by the First Amendment. The First Amendment is a means to limit government power and shield citizens from government intrusion. This regulation is explicitly unconstitutional, and it sets a dangerous precedent for future government overreaches.
So-called “net neutrality” also inhibits the Internet service market from functioning freely. I believe that ISPs like Comcast and Verizon should be permitted to innovate and adjust prices as the market fluctuates. Businesses are already laden with government-inflicted overregulation, and I will not contribute to further overreach through imposing net neutrality by regulating ISPs under the FCC’s Title II authority. As legislation regarding Internet regulation and telecommunications policy comes before the House for a vote, I will continue to keep your thoughts in mind.
Thank you again for taking the time to share your opinions and concerns with me. Please visit my website to send another message, read my positions on major issues, and sign up for my E-Newsletter. I look forward to hearing from you again soon. It is an honor to be your voice in Congress.
It is official, Steve Russell is against Net Neutrality.
I’m sure Steve understands this, so I don’t have to explain it to him, but if you’re confused, let me explain it to you.
What Steve is proposing here is that the government should not medal in the business of the internet and allow corporations their freedom of free speech while restricting our freedom of free speech.
Let me explain. It is proposed that internet service providers are allowed to have two or more lanes. Fast lanes are the lanes for corporations who can pay more and slower lanes are for the rest of us who can’t pay so much. So corporate sites will load so much faster while our lanes will not load so fast.
Its like politics. Corporations can afford to buy politicians for us to vote for. We can’t pay so much, so we just get to vote for the politicians they prop up for us.
This is only because corporations have rights. We care about the rights of corporations because corporations pay those big campaign contributions. We don’t care so much about non corporation people like you and I, because we can’t pay so much, so we’re not so important.
So in other words money talks and the rest of us who don’t have a lot of money, we don’t have a lot of free speech.
Steve – I know you are a veteran like myself. We both took an oath to protect the constitution and I’m sorry you decided to break that oath and sell out to the corporations.
