  1. I saw my dog in the mirror, the other day. I’m pretty sure I saw god.
  2. Just last weekend, flying to Boise, as I brought my support snake on, someone rudely proclaimed “I have had it with these mother fucking support snakes on this mother fucking plane.” I sat down and put my headphones on and just ignored him. Lucky for him I had my support snake to keep me calm.
  3. I thought you were the joke! You always make me laugh. Most folks know me as a jokester. Us Christians make fun of a lot of stuff. Proverbs 17:22 New King James Version (NKJV) A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. Progressive liberalism tends to break one's spirit. Yes, you so called friends of Jesus do make fun of a lot of stuff. Mostly people not like yourself. You are far from what the book you hold up preach. So is Putin and Trump. Putin is a killer and a brutal dictator. Trump is a liar, cheater and, a wannabe dictator. Hardly that what your book preach. You can toss out all of the Proverbs you can find to paste. They do not define you. Your words do and, they define you well. It is clear where your heart and beliefs lie. You idolize the likes of Trump. That is clear. There could be no God of peace and love that would approve of Trump, Putin and, Kim Jong Un. How can you?

  4. Ahhh... just like Chump, you know words, you have the best words! "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young

  6. Haven't been on DZ for quite awhile. Still jumping and working. Besides that, I have been recording some of the stuff in my head Thought I would post a couple of links to my stuff for constructive feedback. I am the sole player on both pieces. Two tracks, one rhythm and one for lead. I do make use of pedals to create the tones. In the future I will be adding drum tracks as I just ordered an Alesis Nitro electronic drum set. Hope you enjoy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AZtDfFQvKU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwpkjRqOqaw "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black."

  7. Interesting. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonkblog/wp/2015/06/18/11-essential-facts-about-guns-and-mass-shootings-in-the-united-states/ "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  8. It has been this way for over 200 years in this country. It is glamorized. We are raised on it. We watch it in movies, play it on video games and deny it is our culture. Shootings are everywhere and they impact each and everyone of us. We all pay the price directly or indirectly. I really do not know what to think. On one hand, I despise guns. On the other, I enjoy shooting targets and deer hunting. I bought a 9mm sub-compact for my wife due to the increase in break ins around the area. She does have a conceal carry permit. I would not be able to live should I not allow a weapon in the house and she was killed by an intruder. This is a case of protection in the house. We do not carry a gun when we go out. Maybe we should. The last family member who was killed by a gun happened more than 50 years ago outside of Las Vegas. Mother's uncle was a mobster and met a bitter end in the desert. That is somewhat understandable. You deal in bad shit, you will be dealt bad shit. I cannot, however, wrap my head around Lexi's murder or the murder of others who are merely there. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  9. No, nor is that a realistic expectation. Generally you would look for ways to reduce, not prevent gun crime. As long as there are guns there will always be such pain. I am a gun owner. I am at a loss for words. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  10. Really do not have much to say as this incident takes a back seat to what happened to my brother's granddaughter (at least, in my family.) http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/eureka-police-retrace-final-hours-before-murder-suicide-of-woman/article_629c8738-120c-5e06-b4c2-f930f7cae500.html My sister, Kim, raised my brother's daughter, Tabitha (the mother of Lexi,) after his wife left with and then abandoned their children. Kevin fought to get them back but, the court felt otherwise. Kevin continued to support his children and saw them on a regular basis. I cannot fathom the reason why the grandmother, Colleen, would do such a thing to Lexi. Lexi's mother, Tabitha, has not been in her life for a couple of years (heroin addiction.) Kim's daughter, Amber, had hoped to adopt Lexi. I do not blame it on the gun. I blame the mental health system and the availability of the gun to mentally ill people. I have no idea where or how Colleen got the gun. She may have owned it for years. She has been in and out of mental healthcare for years. Being that is the case, she easily slipped through the crack that is apparent in the system. I am just sick to my stomach and heart broken. My feelings are this kind of behavior will only get worst and there are no answers in sight. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  11. Dived here years ago while in the Navy http://www.divebuddy.com/divesite/1849/grande-island-philippines/ "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  12. Fly Free in Festus. Mark Cook is the owner. Good people. Say hello to Terry Wendt. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  13. I thought I was being pretty clear. You do realize that the "Dead Cop" chant was faked by Fox News, do you not? These two officers were off duty and in street clothes at the time of the shooting. Very good chance that the shooters did not know of their occupation. Never the less, the shooter will be charged more harshly than if it was just an "ordinary" citizen. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black."

  14. http://www.nationalmemo.com/only-43-8-percent-of-military-identify-as-republican-down-from-56-percent-in-2005/ Your statement is asinine. For the record, 80-84, Navy, HT 2nd Class, USS Okinawa LPH-3, Democrat at time of discharge. I know quite a number more who have served and who are serving now. The military is made up of people from all parties. I would suspect that some change parties while serving. I suspect that most identified with no party whatsoever when joining as a teenager. I didn't. Basically, the poll in the link is flawed. The only question asked should had been "Party affiliation at time of enlistment."

  15. God, so atrocious in the Old Testament, so attractive in the New--the Jekyll and Hyde of sacred romance. - Mark Twain, Notebook, 1904 "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  16. And this is different tan any other day how? and this is different from any other religion how? As I stated " (as other religions do)." "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  17. http://www.newsweek.com/2015/01/02/thats-not-what-bible-says-294018.html I do not believe in the bible as the word of some god and his kid yet, I have read it. I have understood that the whole book is flawed as it contradicts itself throughout. As the article points out, Christians have a tendency to cherry pick and leave the rest out. They tend (as other religions do) to use their personal interpretation other than, what they claim to be, the inerrant word of the god they worship. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  18. So, we can assume, from your perspective, morality is determined by the basic fear of going to Hell. That is religion. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  19. So, Jeebus is against a free market? Likes to maintain a monopoly? Gets so enraged that he goes about, physically, beating the crap out of the competition. How christ-like. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  20. China: 55 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_offences_in_China May drop 9 http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/10/28/359553334/china-may-drop-9-crimes-from-list-of-death-penalty-offenses USA: 41 http://deathpenalty.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=004927 Our list is relating to murder, except for a few. Their list covers everything from treason to surrendering. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  21. (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT) If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her. Does this give him the right to beat her after marriage? Hell, he already paid the price for raping her. Your God is insane. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  22. I think you left out the part about giving a fat lip to women who offer an opinion on anything, or are slow to produce a sammich. Don Or, a beer. You forgot the beer. That's a real mans drink! Well, that and bourbon. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  23. Weekend challenge. Try waterboarding and report back on your thoughts. You might just change your thought on whether it is torture or not. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  24. Anyone who believes waterboarding is not so bad, should try it. I tried it. Didn't last one minute. I cannot imagine being strapped down and forced to endure hours of such treatment. I agree that some of those in detention deserve what is coming to them. I also believe that many had no connection, other than being an enemy combatant on the wrong side. Much like German or Japanese soldiers. This country prosecuted those who waterboard our own soldiers in WW2 and called it torture. We vowed to never act in such a manner and to conduct ourselves in the manner we wish to be treated if captured. We should never lower ourselves just because they do it. We are far better than our enemy. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
  25. Crock of shit. Most were Diest. This country in no way was founded on the delusion of Christianity. You people should get a grip on reality. "...And once you're gone, you can't come back When you're out of the blue and into the black." Neil Young
