I didn’t know your great, great, great-grandfather or his position in life and you didn’t know mine (who came here from Minnesota after the Civil War), and you only see my blues eyes as Malcolm X’s devil. I’m sorry about your sadness. But don’t worry, if you want to spend your life picking sides think about the up coming minority-majority. I married one because he is sane, a hard worker, obeys the law and an excellent father to our son (mine from a failed marriage and father figure). Awesome .

Here’s the way it is about feeling guilty for what you did 50 years ago. If you are liberal and you wronged a conservative, they probably deserved it anyway, so thanks for being there. If however, you are conservative, you will never be forgiven by liberals no matter if it was 50 years ago or 500 years. If they find out the date of your transgression, they will bring it up every anniversary perpetually.

Trying to push someones buttons calling them a liberal or conservative is so primitive. Try actually engaging someone in a dialogue. Dia…as in a back and forth. Don’t be focused on trying to win an imaginary joust. Life is so much more rewarding when one doesn’t just focus on unwinable wins.

So, philosophically speaking, or I should say logically speaking, does that mean the people in the Amazon jungle and other places that haven’t had contact with the outside world and Christians that condemn or want to convert them are evil, bad or not good people?

Guilt is only helpful if you just see it as a learning experience. You don’t have the same ‘mental tools’ in youth as you do when you mature. Stop beating yourself up. Guilt should be kicked off like the dust on your sandals. Wear your life like a loosely worn cloak. Don’t let it weigh you down. Life is to be lived.

And I bet you would help the poor, visit the disenfranchised and visit prisoners even if you were not religious. Because you are just basically a nice person. Would you be any different if you had never heard of Jesus?

Emory students spitting on wounded veterans. A conservative believes that it is disgusting; and a form of assault. A liberal goes on the defensive, and calls it “free speech expression.” And THAT sums up the difference in our current political spectrum.

I do not believe Bill truly wants Hillary (Ms Clinton) to win, because he has nothing to gain from living in the WH. He would be under much more scrutiny, and he would have to appear with her at events. He’s got it pretty good right now, jetting around solo, making millions, staying out of the harsh spotlight.

I’ve been trying to vary my daily walk by walking in the neighborhood instead of my usual walking trail, but after nearly getting run over by the speeders in the neighborhood, I think I’ll go back to the trail.

Muslim Religion flies people into buildings And they are going to be shocked when they arrive for judgment and there is no paradise. Allah doesn’t exist like they believe. There is only one God and his son was Jesus. Mohammad was just a smooth talking human, now mummified.

Which part offended you? That he was jewish, wanted people to care about each other and not seek revenge or he had nothing to say? Or maybe it was where the elements we are made of came from.
