Hey thanks, Bassago. I think I'll skip on the drink. My understanding is that they're a depressant, and I don't need that. Maybe a Pepsi with real sugar (I'm a wild man when I'm on a roll.)

Do we have to pay? Your contribution is your payment. Notice how we've had some people just disappear? They had the bar tabs closed, and when they found they couldn't get a drink or a meal here, they just faded away. You're covered for a good long while.

Hallucination? I'll take your word for it. I don't even know what a hallucination is like. (Remember my sheltered life? Never drunk, no illegal substance of any kind, ever.)

Well, on the Mexico article, I think it can be discussed if we back away a little. Here's what I mean:

Is it possible the United States is looking for a strong North American Union with Canada and Mexico, and sees this as a way of cementing relationships? Turning the two countries into one? Would that be a good thing? Can we come up with any reason for thinking it might be a good thing? Do we need more and more cheap labor?

Now, I don't believe a word of it, but if we work it through we can come to a reasonable conclusion instead of an emotional one. Honestly, I can't think of any way we're better off with open borders. But the President seems to. Or is that a misinterpretation? Is he returning a higher percentage of illegals to Mexico? I haven't seen that. Is he trying to be charitable close to home? Hoping to solve poverty in the area, combined with the hope that they'll go back after they've made a good amount of money?

Again, I don't believe a word of it. But at least the issues have been considered. Now, what do we do? Give California to Mexico and install tight borders after that? Put the army there, call it an invasion and start shooting? Put pressure on Mexico to stop the flow? Although Mexico's president seems happy that Mexicans are taking over the South West.

I think if you bury yourself in thinking about it, you can leave the rage behind. Should we vote? Of course, but I don't see this becoming a campaign issue, there aren't too many candidates shouting "Stop it, right now!"

You're right, Hernando's is low stress, but I react a little differently than most. But I'll hang around for a while and try to breathe again. Thanks, Bassago.

I'm sure we all have an opinion on the Mexico thing but I skip that for now because this other thing seems a bit more important. If you don't want to discuss it I'll understand.

I don't even know what a hallucination is like. (Remember my sheltered life? Never drunk, no illegal substance of any kind, ever.)

What you described in the coffee shop sounds like one to me.

Sheltered lives have nothing to do with it, I wasn't suggesting drink or illegal things. Hallucinations can be caused by a number of things, they're simply what happens when the mind processes something in a way that isn't accurate to reality (if there is such a thing.) A voice or sound when nothing is there, a wall or object that moves when you know darn well that can't happen. Too much coffee can do it, not enough sleep or just stress.

As I don't know what is happening in your life I can't say. Like I said, just tell me to butt out if you don't wish to talk about it.

OK now,

Put the army there, call it an invasion and start shooting?

I vote for this idea, heartless I know but at this point I don't care anymore. Maybe tomorrow I will. Don't forget we also need to finish that stupid fence. Also all the illegals should be rounded up and sent home. Congress can hash out the legal immigration specifics but I'd as soon they stay as they are.

Good afternoon .. was out till club closed .. then went to park practiced taiji for awhile before wander back to hotel ..

@ guahua nope am bad catch too many "bad " habits .. drink .. smoke .. treat them as equals .. refuse to get caught up in the drama / petty bickering over nothing .. dont give a rats arse about money theres far more important things in life than damn money .. better at cleaning house and cooking than most are as well ..

@ charles .. good to see you took time to visit your mum .. hope the visit went well .. family one of the most valuable things we have in this world next to life which is the most valuable .. theres times you need to take time for yourself treat yourself to a good meal .. a night in relaxing and listening to music .. go enjoy the beauty of nature .. otherwise the world will wear you down ..

Can relate to your coffee shop observation .. been many times that felt different and apart from those around me .. never have fit in with the crowd anywhere even with the ability to go native in the places been and go to ..

@ Bassago .. yep tech has advanced humans have not theyre still little very much primitive and barbaric under the thin veneer of "civilization" ..

@ Thurisaz good to see you got rid the uninvited guest /visitor .. ex's are ex's for good reason and best left that way .. aside from one that on very rare occasions talk to have no idea where my ex's are and could care less am well rid of the lot of them and better off without them around .

Think time for tea and mochi as usually just eat big meal in evening ..

Well it's good to see the Gang was here today having drinks and discussing Very Little Politics,,,,, Not Much!
My, OH, My what a day I've had, Just as I finished my last post here, I get a knock at our door.

I normally don't answer my door, my husband does, but he's having a drink and chilling out after being Really sick.
So I go to the door.
Never again!

Two females at my door and their Mormons, very well dressed and looking all wide eyed and Perky

Of-Course I didn't know they were Mormons at first, I thought they were just going door to door looking for donations or something.
It didn't take long before I found out they wanted to Preach to me and they said some thing about it was Acceptably to be Chinese in the Church of Mormon or something to that effect and I said, I don't Believe in any GOD and Slammed the door shut!
That was the only way I could get rid of them, I tried to be mice and I tired to be kind and I tired to explain I'm Not interested!
They would not shut up

I was shocked, in this neighborhood, it's all, Baptist and Catholic, there are only three Caucasian families on the street the rest are Hispanic and African American.
I'm sure they didn't get in anyone home in this neighborhood today.
I told her my husband did care one way or the other, I was agnostic and our daughter is a Buddhist, they both acted like they didn't hear a word I said.

That's OK, I really did feel bad for about five minutes.

Next, the Vampire that has been sucking my husbands Che out of him came by our home today.
The moment I opened the door I felt it, I also noticed my husband just stared at him and told him we were busy.
This neighbor wanted to talk and barrow our lawn mower, I told him to the mower was out back and we didn't have time for company.
He left and my room felt lighter. My husband came out and said that guy is sick some how, he's not right.
I agree, I think he'll no longer be welcome in our home.

Charles, I'm very Happy you visited your Mother and I hope the next time you see her, you remember to tell her Hello from all of us.

Every one else at our Hang Out
I'd shake you hand and give ya a Hug or Kiss if your were here,,,,, BUT, your not, so,,,,, Off I Take My Tired Old Butt,,,, Good Night My Friends,,,
I hope your Spirits are Content and Your Mind is Healthy, For That's The Closest Most of us Well Every Get To Being Wealthy!!

Try messing with them.
It's always a bit of innocent fun.

Pretending to be a Satanist tends to bother them.

LMAO. I pretty sure any entity or being omnipotent enough to be god of the universe isn't sitting up in heaven with a checklist of which country each of us hails from so he/she/it can disqualify the humans unworthy of mormon attentions. It's amazing they don't even realize how ridiculous that sounds.

@All - Sorry, totally forgot my manners. Good morning/evening everyone!

@ all

Hi, sorry I disappeared, but we had family up to visit yesterday, and then my husband pulled the most irresponsible stunt I think I've ever seen out of him since ... almost ever last night, and I'm in an absolutely foul mood today.

So, whoever is tending bar better make whatever they chuck my way strong.

And don't ask me what I think about the border because today my opinions might be a little ... intemperate.

As far as hallucinations, I've had some all from legit sources, including one "bad trip." I did not intend to have any of them, and I absolutely refuse to touch ergotamines because of the bad trip, but my doctors know that. So, I can talk a little about what a hallucination is like on several levels. What does anyone want to know?

Welcome back Ketsuko.

Now you know you can't just lead of with "my husband pulled the most irresponsible stunt I think I've ever seen out of him since ... almost ever" and not elaborate just a little.

One double coffee and Tequila coming up!

He went out to a friend's house which I fully approved of. The projected time period was 6 hours. I knew the activity in question and fully expected that it would spill over maybe an hour or two. So, from 3 to 9 pm, with a projected spillover to maybe 11pm. He knows that Sundays are my weekend day to get up with the kiddo who does not get the concept of sleeping in, and he should have known that I do not sleep well when I am expecting someone home "at any minute."

10 pm rolls around and he sends me a text saying he's going to be "a little late." To me, a little late means minutes. 11 rolls around and he's still not home, so I text back with "a LITTLE?" He replied with "Sorry, almost done." At this point, I am now expecting him to be more or less on his way. At 1 am I have not heard anything more, so I am on the phone demanding to know where he is thinking he may be stranded on the side of the road somewhere. After all, he's in my car which has clutch issues and doesn't go in reverse. Oh, no, he's on his way this time at which point I am inform him that this is unacceptable and hang up.

When he gets home, all he says is "sorry."

Today, I am not sure if he can still tell just exactly how mad I still am. He more or less behaved like a teenager, not an adult.

I can understand the worry. Wonder what he would say if the situation was reversed and it was you who didn't show up until hours later?

Maybe time for a girls night out. Back by 11pm of course, *wink, wink*.

Sounds like you handled it pretty well.

Francis Chan has discovered the secret to getting rid of Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses.

Do what he does and they will NEVER come back again.

How do Jehovah's Witnesses react when they meet someone really excited about God and the Bible and they want to talk about it? Often times they can't run away fast enough. Are they really looking for people who love God and love the Bible -or- are they just looking for people who will blindly submit themselves to their doctrine?

Francis Chan told about the time two Jehovah's Witnesses came to his house. He listened for a minute and then asked if he could tell him about the things that God was doing in his life and how God was answering his prayers. One of them responded that God doesn't listen to everyone. He agreed that she was James 1 it says that if we don't have faith he won't listen, or if we have selfish motives he won't listen...he doesn't listen to everyone but he listens to me.

He told them that the week before he was preparing for a conference where they go and care for the poor and make 10,000 hot meals but they didn't have any meat or any money. They have been praying all week...and an hour after the announcement was made that they didn't have anything to give...Trader Joe's called and said that all of their freezers had broken down...and could they use all of the meat. Then a giant U-haul pulled up loaded down with chicken and pork chops and steaks. Isn't God awesome!? The lady looked at her friend and said lets get out of here. They started walking away...and he went and walked with them! He cared about those ladies...he wanted to tell them about what God has done...story after story...asking them how they could explain that God answered prayer after prayer.

One of them said "What are you...a Pentecostal?" He responded with "It doesn't matter, all you need to know is that I'm a human just like you and I read the Bible for it and then I pray to God and that God listens to me." She responded "Well that's your read it for yourself. You can't understand it unless one of our leaders explains it for you." But that is the real problem. They didn't believe that the Holy Spirit is real...and there is power in the book...he can speak to you. You put your faith in people to tell you what it says...but you can't trust people to tell you the Bible, you have to read it for yourself. God will tell you what it says when you open the book for yourself. Taking God At His Word

On the Jehovah's Witnesses topic, my dad used to say that when they came by to proselytize back in his dorm days, he would always invite them in for a hand of cards. He said that since they considered cards to be evil, this always got rid of them in a pretty civil manner ... at least as far as everyone except maybe the JWs were concerned.

posted on Sep, 7 2014 @ 05:18 PM
In a way I feel sorry for the JW's. I remember quite a few years back working with a guy who was a JW. All he could talk about was the upcoming date rapture that the Watchtower people had prophesied. One Friday he told us all good-bye as it was happening that weekend and all the JW's were going to heaven. He really believed it.

Needless to say Monday morning came and he showed up at work as the saddest guy I think I ever saw. Nobody made fun of him, it was pretty tragic.

I wonder if the mormon's feel that way when their magic undergarments fail to protect them from injury? You'd think they'd have learned by now.

I always feel pretty sorry for the Mormons and JWs too. Since I absolutely hate going to door to door, I'd make a pretty poor member of either religion.

Time to drop a Nickle in the Jukebox. This was one of the featured songs from the movie Zombieland and as I'm in the US it seemed totally appropriate eh? If anyone hasn't seen the movie it's great, highly recommended.
