            Very good! I enjoyed that. I saw a church sign that really hit the nail on the head. Something to the effect that 50 years ago people would have died if you read their diary. Now they publish it for all the world to see. I know I am old school, but I see no value in Social Media.
            The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

            Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you are stupid, and make bad decisions.

              Social media has promoted all the wrong values, and what is so creepy is that an entire generation is growing up in a world of false friends, narcissism, and unrestrained brutality. Whoa... I think I will just stay in the woods on my mountain, thank you.

                Grizzly, I am with you 100% on that. The Values in this country have gone down the toilet. We have a generation of hatred on so many sides now. Which I had some woods on a mountain to go to. It's creepy where I live.

                  I have to strongly disagree with much of what is said above.

                  Social media is a good thing, the problem is its being used poorly.. instead of being used as an auxiliary or alternative source of socialization, its turned into the mainstay. Social media was a great idea that is simply being misused.. any resource that is misused can take on the same negative views..

                  I also strongly disagree with the statement that the values in this country are going down.. I think our values are actually far better today than they were at any time in the past. We have more freedoms of expression, less discrimination, and stronger (and almost equal) women's rights.. People who are victims are less afraid to come forward, disabled people have more freedoms and opportunity, and those who were once considered freaks are more free to live their lives the way they want.

                  Our moral values are far better today then they have ever been by a long shot.. The illusion that morality and values are taking a hit is just that, an illusion, its due to the victims coming forward and the instant spread of information bringing such atrocious behavior to light instead of sweeping it under the rug and hiding it.

                  Our divorce rate has gone way up, but not because morality has gone down.. the divorce rate is up because women are free to leave abusive relationships without being shunned or shamed by their own social circles.

                  Our police are no longer free to just violate civil rights and get a way with it so easily, men can no longer rape women and then shame the woman if she tells her story (although some slow learners still try).. Child molestation is prosecuted to its fullest potential regardless of the societal position the perpetrator holds.. Children and people with special needs are no longer treated like undesirable filth or teased or tormented.

                  We still have a long way to go and certain segments of our society seem to need some special attention to keep up, but I argue we are far better off today than at anytime in history.

                  And I should note, we are improving all the while facing challenges like over-population, global interactions, and new technologies we are not accustomed to yet.

                  The information age (internet) has pulled back the sheets which have hidden the truths of society for so long and some folks interpret the new information as being something new (IE: fallen morality).. when in fact, while the information is new, the issues at hand are not even remotely new.
                  The fire was always there, its the smoke that was being hidden.

                      And we wonder why Judgement day is coming: Our moral values have been trashed in more ways than I can count. How about this for moral values: Since Roe verses Wade in 1973 there have been more than 60 million babies murdered through abortions, Now compare that to how many of our american solders who fought for our freedom and lost their lives and how they are treated today
                      Revolutionary war 4,435
                      Civil War both sides 498,332
                      WW2 407,316
                      Korean war 25,604
                      Vietnam 58,168
                      Now compare that to the 60 million babies that were murdered in an abortion clinic for the sake of socialism. That's not to mention LBGT and a whole lot of other things. And yes the divorce rate is up because there is no morality in this country.
                      We are living in the days of Noah and just like then Judgement day is coming for the acts of what this country has become. Our freedoms as we once knew them are being stripped away by the crap you just posted.
                      Sourdough I agree with you also 100%. Murphy does have one good quality. He knows about electrical stuff.

                        The ugly truth is that we do have a population problem on this planet.. The fact is, because of over-population, our planet is slowly dying.. Keep adding more people and our children won't be able to live on this planet.. so unless you have another suitable planet for us to suck dry and pollute, there really isn't any other option.

                        Now I don't advocate for abortion, I think its wrong.. But what I think doesn't really matter because its not my body.. I'm not a woman nor am I the type to be a dictator and tell other people what they can or can't do with their own body's.

                        I'm also a strong supporter of our constitution and I believe the 13th amendment covers a woman's right to abortion. (that whole thing about servitude for the benefit of another).

                        How in the heck you tie abortion to socialism is beyond me.. And why would you give two hoots about LBGT people? They're not hurting anyone...

                        The divorce rate isn't up because of no morality, its up because women are empowered to leave bad relationships without fear of social consequences.. The bad relationships have always be there.. its just that now, women can abandon them.

                        Our freedoms as we once knew them are being stripped away by the crap you just posted.
                        I'm confused.. what part of what I said in post #9 are you referring to as crap that you don't agree with?

                          Fortunately, we all have the option to agree to disagree...

                          No matter how hard we try, we will probably won't convince anyone to give up what they believe in, and only end up feeling like we are banging our heads against the wall... so why bother? We are almost certain to either get a massive headache or lose weight, or both, lol

                            Since the Pledge of Allegiance And The Lord's Prayer are not allowed in public schools anymore because the word "God" is mentioned...
                            A 15 year old kid in Arizona wrote the attached:
                            New Pledge of Allegiance
                            Now I sit me down in school
                            Where praying is against the rule
                            For this great nation under God
                            Finds mention of Him very odd.

                            If scripture now the class recites,
                            It violates the Bill of Rights
                            And anytime my head I bow
                            Becomes a Federal matter now,

                            Our hair can be purple, orange or green, That's no offense; it's a freedom scene..
                            The law is specific, the law is precis.

                            Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
                            For praying in a public hall
                            Might offend someone with no faith at all..
                            In silence alone we must meditate,
                            God's name is prohibited by the state.

                            We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
                            and pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...
                            They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
                            To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
                            We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
                            and the "unwed daddy", our Senior King.
                            It's "inappropriate" to teach right from wrong,
                            we're taught that such "judgments" do not belong..

                            We can get our condoms and birth controls,
                            Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles..
                            But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
                            No word of God must reach this crowd

                            It's scary here I must confess
                            When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
                            So Lord, this silent plea I make:
                            Should I be shot; My soul please take!
                            Amen

                            Murphy I have nothing against you. You have a right to believe what you what. But please don't knock others for what they stand for. We just might be right. I am not a liberal as you seem to be. That is your choice. But as you can or cannot see our moral values in this country are gone. This country is decaying from the inside because we are teaching our children that right is wrong and wrong is right.
                            And yes I know you will disagree with what that child wrote but he is so right.
                            So PLEASE lets just get on with what this forum is for and stop knocking people. War is coming rather we like it or not and we need to get on with our prepping. The idea of this forum is to learn skills, and learn those skills from each other.

                              The single most important and cherished right our country has is also the very first one on the list.. Its #1..Numero Uno.. reigns grand supreme above all others... we know it as the First Amendment. In fact, its so important, they saw fit to establish the potential for violence to protect it within the very next (2nd) amendment..

                              Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

                              I would fight and die for YOUR RIGHT to freely practice your religion.. and I have served my country to that end. Who else can say the same?

                              If we are going to allow one religion into public tax payer funded establishments (schools, courts, etc), we must allow all religions equally.. Do you know how many religions there are? There are 4200 of them with Christianity making up about 35%. Think about that for a moment.. Would you really want your own kids going to school and having to sit through whatever time allotment there is for each religion to be given its equal time? Would you really want the courthouses dressed up with religious paraphernalia from so many different religions?

                              There is only one science, and for good reason.

                              Regardless of my personal opinions of religion, I have absolutely no problems with people wanting to practice their version of it... just so long as our government doesn't support one over the others and so long as my money isn't being used for such support.

                              Patriotism is protecting what our country stands for and its constitution, all of it, equally for everyone regardless of their differences. That is what makes our country strong, that is why some of the best minds in the world come here. It is America's secret weapon.


                              So PLEASE lets just get on with what this forum is for and stop knocking people. War is coming rather we like it or not and we need to get on with our prepping. The idea of this forum is to learn skills, and learn those skills from each other.
                              Once again, I haven't knocked anyone.. It is you who has now knocked me and once again (that's three times now in two different threads) and brought religion into the conversation.
