apologies

You are right, and I am wrong. I never should have used the name of any religion, nor used religion as a battering ram. All of you who DO walk the walk have my sincere apologies. But why can't I invoke the teachings of a great man to make the point that we really ARE our brothers' keepers and that w...

to LexMom

Thanks very much for your insightful comments. As you suggest, perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the facts. As all this whirls around us, we do seem to be losing the entire point. Maybe I'm being simplistic, but the point seems to be that the council knew the dam was dangerous, did nothin...

Re: After the Dam

LexMom and 10thFO what defines a Christian is NOT how many times one attends church on ANY day, never mind Sunday. A REAL "Christian" tends to be charitable, kind, forgiving, understanding and all those other standards for behavior that a young Jew in Palestine talked about......oh, YES!! ...

Re: After the Dam

And RenegadeMom, from me to you, your reporting of the Pickral tragedy bears NO similarity to this one. A dumbass with a gun shot a child....accidentally or not...and should be required to pay for that. FORGIVENESS?? NO WAY! And accepting an apology doesn't bring back the child, either. A VMI instru...

Re: After the Dam

Ah, it's good to be back among the truly cruel and decidedly UN-Christian of this county. Thank goodness it's not as rampant a disease as say....bubonic plague, but hang in there...you're getting there. At the end of the day, it does not matter one tinker's that Charles SHOULD have known better; wha...

Apologies to Stonewall.......DOH!

Apologies to the Moderator, STONEWALL, and to Wise One, too, BUT let's face it.....a Wise One would make a great moderator, while a STONEWALL sounds a bit rigid..........or not. Back to the MANY devils..... :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: needler :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

HANG IN THERE, AMY!!

Would that MORE made up their own minds, while evaluating evidence. I said I wouldn't argue politics, and I'm not going to start now. I know what I believe and the traits I value; good sense is at the top of the valuable list. I do NOT value someone who says it's a FACT, just to bolster an argument....

While Wise One has welcomed posts from all by creating this forum, I'm not sure posts that are completely unintelligible are exactly what he meant. Perhaps Wise...

Raise taxes? WHERE, exactly, was that said in Chuck's post, LEXmom. Chuck actually said the San Marcos water park cost $1 million to build, but did NOT say taxes had to be raised.

Taxpayer? You're worried about the cost to the residents of the town or the county or whomever? The cost can never be measured in dollars, but that's the only thing that councils and boards and committees understand. The city of Lexington chose NOT to spend a few bucks to prevent an accident like th...

Nah, I don't miss the list of pseudonyms at all; nonova and his ilk are like the proverbial bad penny.....they'll just keep turning up under different names to make normal people think they outnumber the rest.

Thanks for the kind words, beckonwood. You made the point perfectly. When something like this happens, you look for revenge. I do, you did, we all feel the need for revenge even if we don't act directly on the feelings of helpless rage. And whether or not some will admit it, revenge is a natural fee...

Let's see...the city is NOT liable for allowing a dangerous situation at the dam to exist. The city knew it owned the dam, the city knew that water levels rise and fall incredibly fast behind the dam, the city knew that high water made the area around the dam dangerous (and if the council did NOT, i...

Chuck is right. This party is OVER. nonova can go about his tasks, and we can get on with putting the finishing touches to the soon to be EX-dam! By the way, we have ignored Mr Blatter but not on purpose; I think we all got sucked into trying to keep things on target, and missed the opportunity to t...
