    Good morning RPF family. I haven't posted in quite a long time. After my wife's battle with leukemia, I sorta just stopped posting anywhere, and then twitter became a thing... Anyway, my wife is doing well... so well. We are almost at the 5+ year mark from beating this thing. Life has certainly changed for us. Had to sell our house and move to pay for all this madness, but we are doing ok. Ended up moving to middle of nowhere north texas (Oklahoma border) and have a few acres to play around on with animals and gardens. This whole experience has been surreal. My wife found her faith again. She was a lapsed Catholic, but through her whole ordeal, she kept doing the sign of the cross, praying, and found the strength to beat this thing... we've been going to a very traditional Catholic Church that still does the Latin Mass (against the Pope's demands to cease and desist)... I became very good friends with our priest. We hang out a couple times a week and share a beer and talk about God. Suffice it to say that I, too, am now Catholic. I will try and post more often here. To those of you who donated to us when we needed it... from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU. Not a single penny was wasted and every bit went to taking care of my wife and children.

    While I do love me some Massie, this is all theater. The Intel community/FBI us so far beyond the reach of what anyone would call "accountable" it's laughable.

    Yeah. Wilson paved the way for FDR, just as Lincoln paved the way for Wilson.

    Cool.

    Humility is a virtue, and I embrace anyone that strives for it, no matter which path they take.

    Actions speak louder than words.

    Watch my feet, not my mouth.

    That's why I love Ron Paul!!!!!



    And Lord knows I'm far from perfect, too!

    Well... like I say - It's not meant to be a quote

    I like the Old Testament for the history of that part of the world, particularly the history of the Jews.

    I like the New Testament for the teachings of Jesus. Don't care much for the teachings of Paul.

    I think we (the West) can learn a lot from the spirituality of India regarding killing, vegetarianism, and karma.

    I consider myself 'spiritual', rather than 'religious'.

    My favorite church in town is a Hare Krishna temple

    nah... I don't think so ("don't kill" vs "don't murder")

    I like the King James Version "don't kill". He assembled the greatest biblical scholars in Europe at the time - arguably the most intensely researched translation in history.

    Plus, 'murder' implies (by definition) that we shouldn't kill humans, while 'kill' implies we shouldn't kill anything - if we don't have to. I feel the same way. Bad karma.
