Bio not provided
Once again Tennessee proves it is hostile to anyone who takes their God-given liberties seriously.
On May 30, 2001 Haslam, after getting a near unanimous majority up vote from both the House and Senate, signed the law making offensive speech illegal. Now, my home state refuses to stand up to the fed-headed bullies who are training and arming the Department of Motherland Scrutiny for war.I've all but given up on us all.

@Randy Thomas I'd answer but this would just turn into the same outstandingly common repast thing that it did on facebook. I'm not having it either.
In reading between your lines, I have to agree that we have been forcing ourselves to settle for the lowest common denominator we can find. We're afraid of excellence, because it holds it's own flame. I'm reminded that I repeatedly hear that if I don't vote for the best of bad choices, i'm voting for the current perceived enemy. It doesn't matter that my own God-given conscience tells me otherwise. So long as I vote for the best perceived incompetent, it's seemingly okay. And we program each successive generation that electing bad choices is okay because nothing changes because we refused to change it so it's okay that nothing changes, an then settle again in the next round for something even less outstanding. Welcome to Bill and Ted's Who's Most Mediocre Misadventure. I dream of a national election where "None of the above" wins by a write-in landslide. ['tween you and me though, I'd need to look Newt in the eye long and hard and have a private little conversation with him. I'd start by saying, "character outweighs smart. Tell me about your character. Obama's smart in a really badly, horribly stupid sort of way. You have to do better, but I'm not so sure you have better character." I have a thousand other questions, too. ]

Yep, the windows were slightly cracked. :-)Isn't it amazing, the emotions we can feel at the same time and all at once? It's like being deeply joyful that an acquaintance's mom went Home 2 days ago after a very long battle with age and illness, but it being so overwhelming in loss at the same time. Imagining what their close-knit family is going through right now is a pointless exercise.I've often wondered what our emotions would be like, had the Fall in the garden not happened. We were designed in the image and in the mind of Yahweh, who obviously has some pretty strong emotions, Himself. But we weren't designed to be able to handle our own emotions without Him being there to guide us through them.FWIW
Maybe you could learn something from the evil Apostrophe in your quest for global benevolent dominion.

What is worse? Being raped by someone you trusted, or knowing people who should have and cold have cared enough to say something didn't do the right thing either and looked the other way?Imagine being a 10 year old boy and knowing you can't trust anyone.

That's exactly what I meant, but I just didn't say it that way. ;-)

(Even if it doesn't hit my spot, I can still almost hear the Daft Punk boys sampling that and turning it into something that switches my gears.)
Personally, this isn't quite hitting my entertainment spot.
BUT, I'm stricken at the creativity of people and what comes out of their depths. And I wonder what it would be like to see all that creativity expressed upwards toward Home and Father.All that creativity in ourselves, and so many doubt a more creative Creator. FWIW.

@Randy Thomas Wow. I guess we shut this one down.
I'll mail you some bright red security tape that means business. You can't miss it on the conveyor and it will be VERY obvious when cut open for inspection...It's for taping packages with radioactive material. Great stuff. The TSA would love it.
@Randy Thomas ROFL!!! YOU PROMISED you wouldn't tell! Now you can't be GWP without buying an indulgence.

@Randy Thomas I'll check in a bit. Gimme a sec and I can at least tell you the cookies being payed out...
@Randy Thomas@Dhara Mistry I just saw that too. If I did more serious blogging, I'd demand this comment system.
@Dhara Mistry Y'all got a good thing going here. (Pardon my southern accent)
@Randy Thomas So, you don't have to approve comments? Or did I misread you?

@Randy Thomas Ah! Post editing. You~your.
Yup. Def post editing.
@Randy Thomas This is pretty cool, and still allows some semblance of anonymity, too.
@Randy Thomas I don't allow trackers. Disqus used a tracker that forced you to take it or you couldn't comment. If I'da thunkaboutit I could have told you whether it was from you local machine or from the intersoopswebs.
Oh thank God Disqussthing is gone!
