“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”—King Solomon (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)
Nobody has been at the top of their game! (including Tom Brady)
"The New England Patriots offense has struggled mightily all season and on the eve of their game against the Cincinnati Bengals have released one of the underachievers from the unit as Kenbrell Thompkins was waived." (Fansided)
I do not like this move at all! Skeptical it will help us against the Bengals tomorrow…
“In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.”—King Solomon (Ecclesiastes 7:14)
How do you feel about Hobby Lobby denying their employees the right to buy birth control? Their reasoning is opposing it on religious grounds even though birth control is used for more than just preventing pregnancy.
Hey, there’s a lot of misinformation going around. Here’s a few facts that often get missed.
1) Hobby Lobby is ok with paying for 16 out of the 20 required types of birth control under Obamacare.
2) They have a religious objection to 4 of them, specifically the morning-after pills. The types that stop a baby from surviving after conception. Abortion inducing drugs. The birth control they are talking about isn’t used for anything except preventing pregnancy after conception.
3) They aren’t denying their employees the right to buy birth control. They can buy those 4 drugs themselves if they wish. They pay their employees well, and they have stated again and again that they aren’t trying to control anyone’s decisions. In fact, this whole discussion is about the right to make decisions, and whether or not you can force someone to pay for something they have a religious objection to.
Here’s a nice video of a spokeslady that blinks a lot. She does a nice job of explaining it.
"Genetically Modified Wheat - A constant issue arises with genetically modified foods, as people fear which will be the health issues that they could face by consuming them. Now, On Sept. 26th, this last Friday, unregulated modified wheat popped up in Montana and has raised worry once again."
"The main problem with genetically modified wheat is that it is not approved for USA farming, because it stops exports with other countries that are not interested in genetically modified wheat, as it is consumed directly by people."
I personally do not care if the US sells genetically modified food.
However I prefer that all genetically modified food be labeled as such since a large population (myself included) prefer to consume food that was not altered in a lab!
Sitting here watching people who think they can call the Scotland vote based on results from three electorates. Guys. That’d be like the US calling an election based on the results from Rhode Island, and only Rhode Island.
You all just started counting.
Great answer to those wondering if the Scottish Independence movement has a chance!
