      Good morning Chrissy, I have noticed that a while ago. I check out a lot of conspiracy stuff, some of it is believable some of it is way to far out there. For instance noone truly knows what's behind area51 but maybe aliens is just a cover story because everyone knows you don't need thousands of machine guns to guard a weather ballon.

    Good morning to you also @ hamsta. Yea some of it is believable, but not the wierd twists he puts on things. Im rather certain they are NOT guarding NAZIs or a BAYER manufacturing facility!

      Thanks for your consideration. It just seems like one thing after another, we can't seem to get a break. You can't fully recover from one situation before the next pops up. I'm just glad I have been more fortunate than some others. Maybe it's that thing about bad things coming in threes, I don't know. Then again maybe its just some bad voodoo my evil ex girlfriend put on us. I don't know the reason, but I won't ever give up.

    Now my comments are awaiting moderation? Must have struck a nerve telling CNN to get their info right, huh? I haven't said anything offensive, but some other people have said some pretty offensive things about me, my state and the way of life here, including CNN. Once again Pearl River is nowhere near Nola, most people don't even know what a lock is, and I can show you how far Pearl River lock no.2 is from New Orleans on a map of the entire United States or even a globe. Are you really that offended that I pointed out that you can't get your info right? I have a good solution, hire better journalists.

    Hymn #365
    A southern Baptist minister was completing a temperance sermon.

    With great emphasis he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

    And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

    Sermon complete, he then sat down.

    The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, Shall We Gather at the River."

      And, good morning to all.

  10. LDS @ Kenney

    4 times this has been posted: LDS leaders, like Mitt Romney, teach that the old jewish temple will be rebuilt in N. America. The "name and location" are those given by LDS leaders: N. America.
    As far as I know, they don't name a state or city. They'll probably have to feel around to find it like they did for Salt Lake City since their leaders are still only guessing.
    and is your google broken or what?

  11. "Good Morning" @1:08PM

    Good one. Like Good Morning Viet Nam with morning breath.
    Why is it that native Asians had to be buried right away, but US soldiers killed in Viet Nam didn't? (hint: has to do with diet)

      I was eight minutes off on the "good morning" scale.

So where else would god and christ reside?
