Ranch Greeting's Mr.Infidel!

I real nice round up you have here this morning and several other read's that I havent finished, but I wanted to comment on a couple thing's here.

The post of Mr.Evil basatrd concerning the online scam of TTJ Property Mngmt is an informative piece for those job shopping, there is so much employment scam's right now across the board because of folk's and desperate job searches ... be sharp! And the other posting by him as well, was a great piece as far as the length's and route's that the catholic diocese may take, which everyone should expect, they may have gave it lyin down, but their not going to take this lyin down themselves, good job from Mr.Evil Bastard!

As far as stories and theories just for read ... the one about Ms.Earhart from Discovery News was quite a good read too. A first for me.

Interesting post on the Republican Party and Sen.Graham's(SC) view's too. At least for me .... because I have been very confused over the last few year's of exactly what the Republican Party of today is? It just seem's so out of whack to me ... not even sure if they have a platform actually or who is running it, or just about anything else .... even what the definition of conservatism is any more, I actually consider a few of my view's as conservative even, but it is very difficult to identify with today's GOP even if you have conservative business view's. Just found it interesting because I have had a difficult time understanding today's GOP, almost seem's like several parties instead of one party.

The Bee thing for me that I sent.... is just one of them thing's that concern's me, mainly because of the pollination and eco factor's ... kind of look at some of our insect's and such as the first horticulture and agricuture work force I reckon .... before human's/ animal's.

Have a nice 4th of July weekend Guy ....

Another thing that caught me, was the story in Atheist Haven on the "Hillbilly Preacher's". But made me think of an incident I'd like to share. Back sometime early 1970's (I was 18/19 or so I reckon) I was in an old piece of shit car in southern Tennessee round Chattanooga .... very rural town, just passing thru to go to the Atlanta area. I stopped on this rural road to drop in a store, struck up a conversation with a women probably late 30's with her teen daughter, she was talkative, friendly, welcoming type, I was buying some junk munchies, but she suggested and invited me to come home and eat a homecooked meal with her and her familia or daughter. Very rural way out home in a wooded area, modest, very clean (not really hillbillies, but very rural type's).It was only her and her daughter there who looked a couple year's younger than I, maybe 15 top's. There was all this religious plaque's and book's, picture's of Jesus and other stuff all over the house, they just smiled and welcomed and were very, very friendly, but didnt talk really much religious even though the home was saturated with this religion stuff. But the girl halfway finished eating, and left the table, and didnt return and said nothing. I then finished eating, and the mom took me in the living room and was showing me family picture's etc, then walked me down the hall to a bedroom door, and signalled me to go in (open the door,etc)I did and the teen girl was naked on her back leg's open an arm's stretched out on a bed, mom smiled and said ..."go ahead" ... as odd as this may sound, my instinct's made me paranoid, something wasnt right, and this girl was staring at the ceiling with no life almost as in a coma, mom kept smiling at me and telling me to go in with the girl .... I tripped out and started to tell her I need to go, she even tried to hold me back, that is when I insisted I need to go, something wasnt right and I didnt trust this at all, I got the Hell out quick though. Just in short.

Later ......

I see Dr. de Grey' point as far as access to info and sharing ... I feel the same. Only been on live a lil over 2 year's but loved all the info I can access the most and what it has to offer. Kind of like another dimension for me.

RC: Thanks for the comments. I think that the platform of today's Republican party can be summed up in two quotes: "Whatever it is, I'm against it" (Groucho Marx), and "God hates fags" (Fred Phelps).

I too would have been highly suspicious in the situation you describe in your second comment. Tempting as the situation might appear, that's not normal female behavior, and one would have to be very naïve to take it at face value.
