"If our country was invaded by an entity that wanted to destroy it, I might throw off my pacifist ways.  I don't know.  If someone attacked my family, my children, I wouldn't run.  But that is just a passing fancy.  It…"

"I'm pretty confident I am on their watch-list. Although, I have to tell you, if it would come down to the defense of my family, particularly my children, I think I could kill someone. The thought of I would rather own a gun and no use it, than…"

Robert Karp commented on Janet Richter's blog post 'Acts of Violence Against Women'
"I think you will find, like religion, the mentality of many men when dealing with women in general is very 1st century. I'm all for mandatory castration for rapists. I think rape would stop. I'm sorry this happened to you."

About Me:
I live in a small town in Northeastern Oregon that is primarily inhabited by Catholics and Mormons. It is a very conservative community which is okay most of the time. However, if I were very vocal about my beliefs or lack there of, the end result would be something akin to a witch hunt where I would end up hanging from a light pole with seagulls pecking the eyeballs out of my lifeless body as mothers point and whisper to their children cautionary tales about sin.

Why are you here?
I literally Stumbled on this site (thank you Stumbleupon) and found many posts that I could relate to. Intelligent and well written. So I am here for more of the same.

Pissing off God

Posted on May 12, 2011 at 10:23am 2 Comments

Several years ago my Mom called me, very upset.  She was stopped at an intersection in the road and started to pull out when a truck blew through the intersection and almost hit her.   A couple of blocks down the road the truck had, indeed, caused an accident that she drove by.  She told me God was really looking out for her that day.

Without even thinking I blurted out, "I wonder what those people in the accident did to piss God off so much that he wasn't looking after…

10 Year Old Kills His Father

Posted on May 12, 2011 at 1:32am 6 Comments

This happened on May 1st so I don't know if it is common knowledge or not.  I just found out about it today and have been reading what articles I could find.  Oh, boy, I wish I could figure out how to put links in so you will have to forgive me.  Just Google Jeffrey Hall and you will get links to the New York Times, ABC News, Slate News, etc.

Jeffrey Hall, the victim, was a White Supremacist who regularly held meetings in his home.  Apparently he was a ranking member of the Southern…

Bin Laden's Burial at Sea

Posted on May 2, 2011 at 3:25pm 9 Comments

There are a couple of really good blogs already on the death of Bin Laden, so I am not going to go there.  I just have one question.  Do you think the United States government really buried Bin Laden at sea within 24 hours?

I have never thought of myself as a conspiracy theorist and I'm not saying that this couldn't happen or didn't happen.

How many documentaries and news stories have I seen that clearly state "This is not a CSI TV show, you don't get DNA results by the end of…

What is my moral obligation on my lost child?

Posted on May 1, 2011 at 3:00am 5 Comments

I like to think that in spite of my lack of belief in a god or religion that I am a moral person.  Not perfect by any means but I try.  (Check out my blog on licensing my dogs.  Better late than never.)

I have 5 children and the odds are that not all of them are going to be perfect.   One high powered accountant, one serving his third tour in Afghanistan, one struggling but surviving in a downtrodden economy, one finishing his first year in college.  If you are counting that is four. …
