About Me

Live Your Life - so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh

Fess up DUers, who here has hit a deer with their vehicle?

You swerved, but still hit the deer. Now you may face a raise in your car insurance rates for something you feel you could not avoid. Even if you have never had this experience several insurance companies are raising rates in states with high or rapidly increasing rates of deer strikes.

Currently West Virginia has the highest rate of deer strikes, where your odds of hitting a deer are one in 39, followed by Michigan, where insurance rate increases are directly correlated with an increase in deer strikes. So, unless you plan to move to Hawaii, where your chances of hitting a deer are only one in 10,000, you may want to take some precautions.

Accidents with deer occur most frequently between October and December which is mating season. Collisions with deer are increasing due to deforestation and building in rural areas forcing deer out of their natural habitats and into more highly populated areas.

The collision rates have increased the most in New Jersey and Nebraska where statistics show a 54% increase in the number of car versus deer accidents in the past two years.

Since he is the one running/holding public office, I would think he would want his actions to be

so far above suspect where his children are concerned that there would be no reason for this thread because there would be nothing to question about his sincerity.

An Imperial Affliction (AIA from TFIOS)

There's a certain Slant of light
By: Emily Dickinson

There's a certain Slant of light,
Winter Afternoons
That oppresses, like the Heft
Of Cathedral Tunes

Heavenly Hurt, it gives us
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the Meanings, are

None may teach it Any
'Tis the seal Despair
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the Air

When it comes, the Landscape listens
Shadows hold their breath
When it goes, 'tis like the Distance
On the look of Death

I have asked to be blocked from this group. I am deleting it from my Subscriptions.

My last four hides have all been in this group.

Seems jurors can anonymously call me all kinds of names and, say all kinds of things about me yet somehow I called out Juror #4 (really?) in my OP. Anyone interested in the Alert Message and Juror Comments I will send them via PM.

If you are interested in staying in touch with me please contact me via PM and we can Facebook.
Thank you all for understanding.

yes, this is what has happened. Men used religion to sell a bill of goods that the gods are men -

father figures. All the major religions have a male dominance at the head. Throughout history man went into places and sold the pagans and wiccans on these Father dominated religions and placed man above woman.

There is a reason that the science fields through out history have been studied, written and slanted toward the male.

It goes hand and hand with the religion/power structure.

Therefore all science places the importance of the male health and the maintaining of keeping the male the head of the power structure.

But, as technology advances the need for physical/brute force has lessened and women/brain/deduction and reasoning are now traits brought to the fore front and needed/desired and the whole religion/male dominance is caving in on itself.

very scary for the man who does not trust anything but the status quo.

To my way of thinking this phrase =


In banning the offending forums, Reddit CEO Yishan Wong suggested the delayed response was a freedom of speech issue, despite the invasions of privacy being lamented as criminal.


is the fundamental philosophy of a Libertarian ...

One has the the right to commit a crime.


I think the basic component of Libertarian Philosophy is To Take the Idea of Free Will to the Fullest Extreme.

Individualism without the construct of Living Peacefully Within Society.

They seem to simply Not Care about others and they think it is Their Right To Not Care.

I don't get it. at all.
