Quiz! Are You Low, Middle Or High Class?

You're at the bottom of the barrel...the last one picked. You live a simple life without many frills, but that's exactly the way you like it.

What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?

This is a question that has vexed me most of my life.
I would like to be proficient at lots of things.
As a result, I am a jack of all trades, and a master of none.

What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?

Building. I plan to buy a small bandsaw sawmill to mill out my own lumber, and I have this compulsive need to build my own "Thoreau" tiny house on my land down near the back side in the woods by the river. I know pretty much how I will build it, but being rock solid on all areas of the build would be a plus.

That sounds pretty cool! Sounds difficult too.

Singleness: What the Bible says about being single?

One of the first things God did was to make a partner for Man.

Genesis 2:18 - And the LORD God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an helper suitable for him.

That kind of makes me think that God's favors marriage.

However in Corinthians the Apostle Paul says that marriage can be a distraction. Marriage necessitates devotion to our mates. Married people must meet the daily demands of life. Their concerns are more divided about those issues than the single person.

1 Corinthians 7:32-35 - But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord.

There's a lot of instruction in the Bible about how husband and wife should be with one another and with God. Single people should view their singleness as a special opportunity to serve the Lord.

Do companies actual pay advertising firms money for stupid stuff like this?

Part of the article reads - "Burger King promises $50,000 and lifetime whopper supply for Russian women able to get pregnant from any football celebrity (to transfer good genes to Russia)

To be clear, in other places in the article it specifies 'Burger King Russia'.

So Burger King Russia is pimping out Russian women. Not cool.

Wonderman - I am a Christian.

I'm not into adjusting my beliefs to fit into some kind of universal belief system.

Supreme consciousness sounds pretty cool, but I've never seen it in the Bible to describe God.

I agree that Science will never be satisfied of God's existence. The eyes of science are closed to the obvious existence of God.

I have respect for your beliefs Wonderman.

Remember when people here screamed that Shariah Law would take over the Constitution? Today several top US officials used the Bible to justify traumatizing children by tearing them away from their parents. That my friends is hypocrisy at its finest. Theocracy is theocracy whether Muslim or Christian. This must not go unchallenged.

I call BS.
This post is BS.

It is based on lies to support the OP's progressive agenda.

Let me get this straight, the separation of families seeking asylum, depending on which official is speaking is: the law, a deterrent, the democrats fault, is biblically sanctioned, does not exist, and will go away if we all agree to pay for a wall.

What do you think of the new Domino's Pizza promotion Paving Streets To Save Pizzas?

I feel like Domino's has come up with an a clever marketing idea, that's kinda completely pointless to me.

First was the Pizza Take Out Insurance... if your pizza gets damaged before you get home, you can bring it back in for a new one. Which is completely pointless, because really how often do pizza's get damaged on the way home? I've had it happen maybe once... and I was a kid and the pizza just flipped upside down in the box but still good.

Now the fix roads... which in theory I could love... others than in the state I'm in, there is so much red tape about fixing roads it basically it happens extremely slowly... and I doubt they're going to fix roads, but basically fill in some pot holes.

I think it's a great marketing idea... I'm not sure if it's more than that (yet), though it could be.

Kim is a dictator that uses prison camps, summary executions, torture, mass starvation, and state run media to control his people. Kim is as bad as Stalin, Pol Pot, or Idi Amin ever were. We elected someone to turn the corrupt US government around. Instead he breaks bread with Kim. Trump taking lessons, so he too can be "revered". All government is corrupt.

Would you ever consider reconciliation with your ex if she called you every day and told you that she loves you?

I left her because of her drinking and verbal abuse. Now that she has pancreatitis? She hasn't had a drink in months and I think that woke her up to reality.

In response to “I left her because of her drinking and verbal...

Let me say Rooster, I'm kind of a hard **** on such topics. I know alcoholism is considered a disease, but unlike pancreatitis, alcoholism affects everyone around the alcoholic. You know that all too well.

Stopping the drinking may allow the pancreatitis to subside. But it does nothing to heal the emotional damage to the alcoholic or the people the alcoholic hurt along the way. THAT requires some lifestyle changes.

Has she joined AA? How long? Talk to her about it. If all you hear is stuff about quitting drinking - she's not done. Significant breakthroughs revealing inner emotional stresses and learning to cope and change are the kinds of things you want to hear.

Consider an AA offshoot for yourself. ACOA comes to mind, but there maybe another group more directly for spouse of alcoholics. Living with an alcoholic long term can have effects on YOU - emotional ones. Things that change the way you react and respond to situations. I would encourage you to look into this whether you get back with the ex or not.

I'm sure the situation feels like it needs to be responded to right away. Rooster, I'm suggesting that you move slowly. You need to take care of YOU first, or you won't be good for any relationship.

You've got some rough water ahead my friend.
I will pray for you.

At what point does disobeying the law/orders from your superiors become a moral obligation?

If the order is unlawful.

An example in current events might be helpful.

Separating family members of families crossing the border illegally isn't illegal. It's sad and even painful, but so many extenuating circumstances are involved and the only way to keep the children safe during adjudication is to separate them from the adults.

Now, if I were ordered to drag these family members to the side and kill them - that is clearly unlawful and I would disobey.

Glad to be of help.

There's an awful lot we don't know and probably shouldn't know about your particular situation. That makes it difficult to respond.

I understand the emotion pulling you back toward the ex. She is a known quantity. I also understand the emotion pulling you to your new love interest. She helped you heal.

If my ex had left me - I don't see how I could ever trust her again. She calls every day and says she loves me? Where was that devotion when she left?

There's stuff going on in the old relationship that enabled the break up. You need to identify what that is / was and what if anything has changed. In the meantime keep the new love interest hanging. And oh yeah, tending to your own emotional damage.

For me, it would be difficult to go back with the ex.

Now, if it was me that left the ex - I'm afraid I can't offer insight.

Responsible parents teach their kids never to point a gun at something you don't intend to fire at or kill because that's its function, to kill. Responsible citizens should never point the "law" at someone or an act that isn't worth taking a life because ultimately, people with guns must enforce that law and it could result in the taking of a life. Responsible citizens must ask: "Is it worth this?"

"I watched it, he was floating guilt by association... Poorly, at that. "

The asinine suggestion Gowdy made was that the investigation was biased because two agents seemed biased. Two agents being biased isn't not itself evidence of a biased investigation, much less biased findings.

"By Gowdy's estimation all of govt. and any of their efforts are biased because a few are biased. It's a fallacy [guilt by association] for a reason, it's illogical."

I simply followed Gowdy's fallacy to its illogical end. Gowdy suggesting investigation findings were biased because of the apparent bias of two agents is as illogical as suggesting the entire govt. is corrupt because a few officials have been caught in corruption.

The IG requires more than guilt by association to deem an entire investigation biased. Gowdy knows that, he simply ignored it to play politics; e.g. he's "bitching and moaning."

OK, let me be more clear -
FLOATING guilt? What does FLOATING mean in this context?

If the agents performing the investigation were biased, the investigation WAS biased. Seems clear to me.

It's not about my image of success. It's about her success. She is currently successful. That doesn't mean she always will be. Her fame will die out eventually, I'm sure. But right now because of her famous name, strip clubs want her and she is being hired left and right while still making media appearances. She has been anything but forgotten in her line of work.

Do You Remember Stormy Daniels?

So your only evidence is the outward appearance of that particular strip club? Are strip clubs ever in fashionable parts of town?

Here's some more information:

"[The Memphis Pony Club] is one of the five among Westlund's [the club's owner] 19 that contracted for appearances by Stormy Daniels, the adult film star whose alleged affair with President Donald Trump made her a mainstream name. She's doing the shows as part of her "Make America **** Again" tour of clubs nationwide that capitalizes on the fame, or notoriety, of being associated with Trump." From a USA Today article published today.

She is making the rounds of various clubs (Pony Club is a chain and there are several locations, all owned by the same person) and capitalizing on her media attention. That's all.

The image of her having fallen on hard times is false.
