spot on my friend only we should abolish wars forever leaving our troops purely as a defensive force in case of likely attack. or imminent. or actual attack .
And stop meddling and interfering with other countries problems there we truly become fools in wars we cannot afford and rely on borrowing money to execute.Alistair

I’m guessing we don’t do good at getting along because the majority of the membership are just like their parents and their parents before them…religious, conservative, republican who do not like change and only a few of us are of the enlightened.

Part of the celebration would include spending the day with a group of people that for whatever reason we look down on or despise or hate or have no consideration for or… The next day we resume our normal evil, deceitful, uncaring lives that we so cherish.

Sounds like Christmas…

Scotsman, one sure fire way to end war is to have a worldwide law that states the person or group of persons that declare war on another country must always be in the vanguard of the attack. No leader(s) leading, no war. The military would be free to not fight if not led…

I’m thinking comments like that is why YOU might not get along too well with others DKV. Not me, as I haven’t even commented on anything of yours before I don’t believe, but I noticed you like to polarize the membership and label them as belonging to certain groups. Practice what you are preaching please and maybe everyone really can get along.

Oops. By your thinking I should have waited until April 1st to talk to you. Hahaha.

seems to me, groups polarize each other, due to the fact they all too often talk about the things they know little about so if the big dreamy world of make believe was beside me, what it would it think?

If “it” was alive today, and the event called Easter, April Fools, or Christmas, and every religious and political view was enacted, we would be faced towards a long history of wars lost

Daniel/Craftsman on the Lake. No fish here. I know what his intent is and don’t get reeled in by it and have already said I haven’t commented on his posts before. My comment was actually meant to be slightly humorous, but I can see I failed in that. I don’t get upset by his posts because I know he doesn’t mean almost any of what he says. It’s the posts of those who say dumb crap and mean it (cough cough HM cough cough) that I get upset about.

Dale, not to get anyone riled but I mean everything I say…I think. I would like it if you joined in. Contrary to what HMike and some others say I am not a “causer of trouble”. I consider myself a “speaker of truth”. Neither am I a troll that gets enjoyment out of pissing people off by intentionally posting incendiary topics. I enjoy woodworking, speaking my mind and trying to help the closed minded. That’s me in the proverbial nutshell.

I spent 3 years worth of holidays in Iraq with people that professed they wanted to kill Ameircans, reasons were varied end result was the same. Having done my time in Hell I am none to intersted in sharing a meal and putting on a happy face about it while they plot. I would rather endure a circumcision via chainsaw with a rusty blade.

#28 posted 03-31-2013 03:10 AM

DKV, juniorjock, others, you are welcome. Allow me to give you a glimpse of what those that endure such actions feel.

I have walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death,
Past the twin pillars of fire at the Gates of Hell, and descended into the depths of that Abyss.
There we have done battle with the Furies. Many of those comrades have fallen at my side.

Words cannot express what it is like to hold a fallen comrade in your arms, hear him call for his Mother, pray with him that God will take away the pain, and listen as he begs you to take him home because he is cold.

Nor can mere words do justice to the emotions you experience as you watch the last breath of life leave the body, see the eyes go cold and grey, then feel the gentle whisper of the wind as the spirit departs the body.

I have avenged my fallen comrades, tenfold as Honor demands. The enemy has known true fear, and experienced the vicious taste of my wrath. They have learned I will show no mercy. But it did not bring them back.

My experience has taught me two lessons; the first is that life is short and should be enjoyed; the second is that Freedom is not free. It is paid for with blood and the sacrifice of those who stand on the line and say nothing crosses me on my watch. If you want past me you must go through me and I will not go quietly into the night.

Today I enjoy the beauty of a soft rain on a lazy afternoon. I am grateful that God allowed me to come home to be one of the “Returned”.

As you go your ways thank those who have served and if you have a moment take time to “Remember the Fallen”.

Here’s one I hope turns out to be a bad April Fools joke. A teacher in Idaho is being investigated by the state standards board for using the word vagina in a biology sex education class. According to state officials the proper term for those nether regions is “lady parts”. Personally, I prefer the term “virginia”.

I’ve done more research. Four families complained about the v word. According to the Spokane Spokesman no one in the four families has a virginia nor did anyone in the four families pass through virginia when they were born. We’re either talking magic or miracle…go figure. I was under the impression that that kind of stuff only happened in ancient books.

DKV,

I am not the moderator. However your postings are not allowed by the rules I’ve read – I think its important for you to read the “view the posting rules” link before you post. It can be found at the top of the posting window in red with a ”+” sign in front of it.

Excerpt Citation –
3. Non-shop Talk

In order to keep the Projects, Blogs and Forums as “woodworking-related only” as well as to provide a place for members to socialize about things other than woodworking, we have introduced a “Non-shop Talk” section, located here. The rules are the same as above. The “Non-shop Talk”, although not about woodworking, is still a component of the site and the same rules and expectations apply. “Play nice” sums it up nicely. Because of their divisive nature, political and religious debates, and thus postings, are prohibited at LumberJocks.com. Please refrain from starting or taking part in such discussions.


I signed up on this site to learn from and enjoy the work of others (and maybe avoid the news we hear every day) and to be “enlightened” in other ways.

- Please read the rules -

Note to moderator – this is a time to step in, I feel, with a reminder to all of the posting rules.

Happy Easter everyone.

Matt
