Counting our blessings today

November 28, 2013

Almost always, it sometimes seems, we Americans find ourselves striving to overcome some sort of challenge. Too often it is war, bringing with it terrible loss and heartache....

especially for cronig who accuses everyone of missing things. thanksgiving was pushed as a national holiday by guess who folks , you are not going to believe it, a woman. Sarah Josepha Hale. She was a self taught genius. she pressured Lincoln and he accepted her desire for a national holiday for thanksgiving. Cronig ,missed a big one again. Sarah was forgotten as she was not a suffragette. just a very smart self taught person. No teacher union for sarah. cronig goofs again.

While we are enjoying our blessings a 85 year veteran is being forced to read statements by the North Koreans. Where is out CinC that he is allowing this?? Why is this country allowing that to happen to that man?

hey icono, all of nature is not what it should be, again the philosophers like goethe noticed this. something is amiss they insist. And they are correct. In religion it is known as the fall. Ancient far east stories have man and woman falling descending from just above the air glow layer, where the lightning arises down to the surface. pretty good for superstitious people eh icino ? So when you libs get past all the mocks and realize there is great truth in the ancient writings you will make progress. Hint for you, the phrase god created heavens and earth is not the literal heavens and earth, but the wave particle medium upon which all matter, thats true icono runs on or derives from. We know it as the 2 slit experiment.Even philosophers knew the bible is written in a dialectic, uhoh, a big word for the stupid libs here. they would never take it so literal. It makes the story easy to remember , but the actual truth is different from what is written. all of this is beyond the libs.

hey icono, your first post of kids dying. How quaint. we could say the same thing about abortions, but , choice is the liberals mantra. from philosophy, we find that the mind of man is evolving from the group mind of race, family or tribe to the individual. thats what the philosophers say folks and the historical record verifies it. Early people did not have an appreciation for the I or individual. What better way to get the point across than having a child day in front of your eyes.that you did not build it is a key premise of liberalism means that the libs have retarded timing.Like the days of autos when you could turn the distributor CCW to advance spark. Performance improves. The libs are retarding the spark of civilization and you libs support it.You libs are just ignorant and stupid,laughable, but you keep issuing mandates. Thats the non laughable part. ACA is the worst one since the income tax.

you libs do not know how to debate. You would not last the probation period in industry. Libs like icono and cronig, etc start by erupting into a post of great indignation, false righteousness about how bad america is and how wonderful liberals are. Then throw in some assorted name calling, they think it makes them look smart and they are finished. No facts, ignoring posted historical facts and the libs think they are smart. Libs its the other way. you libs post continual nonsense. All you got to do is read history and you will see. i am still waiting for the list of govt projects libs, you know,how the govt invented the world we live in. Where is it learned liberals ?

hey commentor and rumblefish, you certainly are ignorant of how the global economy works. the large chemical companies have very expensive equipment. Many times they helped invent it, uhoh, they did not build that. If, for any reason, some customers want independent labs, many colleges have great analytical labs too. all staffed by learned people Something i do not see here. One can live anywhere, do some travel , use e-mail etc and the world wil unlock its secrets. All of this is unknown to the envirowackos here. They cry end of the world, ban fracking etc. thanksgiving was done in the 1620s by religious people. America was founded on religious people. How the libs hate that.

we find it curious we mention Joe, and rebuttal comes from other user name, it been suggested in the past by Christopher and others that commenters have many aliases for comment posting this may be evidence of this practice

Tell me rumblefish since you know me so well what it is I could have criticized about what Judeye posted? It was a very nice post and it was in keeping with our day of giving thanks. The first three posts were obnoxious to say the least!

Joe flip/flops so much between praise and criticism of posts and posters, we almost swear he was or is an elected official, if he flipped a coin it would end up on it's edge

Judeye thank you for not joining the first three idiots commenting on this day of thanksgiving thus creating a tsunami of stupid and blasphemous remarks. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

And while we often disagree about political, economic and social issues, we are reminded in times of need, including disaster, that those with whom we have disputes today rush to help us when the chips are down. That is simply who we Americans are.

WELL SAID..VERY WELL SAID

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL

the debate of is or isn't is not answered on this mortal plane, but one does not have to be preacher to practice G.O.D.(Good Orderly Direction) just because you can't explain or haven't experienced the unexplainable, doesn't mean it will or won't happen,

Steinernut.....I quote you...." I work with the best, smartest people in the world ! We have access to the best, most expensive analytical machines available. it is like the TV series Bones and all the science stuff they have." If this is true you would have to work in a very big city and state because there sure as h ell isn't any industry like that around this area. That brings up the question....what in God's name are you doing reading the Observer and engaging in comments with the posters here???? Steinernut me thinks you are living in a pretend world. You are only this great scientist in your own mind!!! You probably live in a shack in the boonies and shovel manure and raise pigs.

In Pascal’s Pensées, one of his large religious papers, Pascal made a famous statement known as Pascal’s Wager: "If God does not exist, one will lose nothing by believing in him, while if he does exist, one will lose everything by not believing." His conclusion was that "...we are compelled to gamble..."

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

I see we have a gambler here and it's their right to do so. But, all of us will all close our eyes one last time and then we will know for certain if God does exist.

Steiner we have pondered all your lists of accomplished and inventions to rain blessings on mankind, we feel that you should have your own special holiday to celebrate the magnitude of you, how about we change Thanksgiving to Steingiving you know exchange one turkey day for another

And on the eighth day... And after he rested He sat for a while And looked down on the earth With a cruel hateful smile An omnipotent being Always was, always will With endless millennia To slaughter and kill These creations he’s made The creatures called man Are flawed and imperfect All part of his plan Twill be entertaining Watching them grow Into vile worthless beings As he already knows Then kill them with pestilence Firestorms and plague Drown all his creations And smile as they beg Warmongering butcher Please ask yourself why People worship this monster And not let him die ----------------- And now we's gonna pass around the collection plate... y'all dig deep now ; )

Dcronlg, You are right, there is no mention of God in the constitution but a rational read would reveal that God is implicit in the preamble since it is there you will find the word "blessings". So who is the Blesser if not God?

here is another dialectic for icono and cronig. How are you libs going to know how ignorant you are if there was no learned guy like steiner to show you ? from his steinertron machines, to 10,000 lives saved , to around the world chemical sales and reknown, all for the dumb liberals here. yes. all done without a govt program or employee, funding etc. or even a woman for the basic or groundbreaking ideas. So who is the clueless church lady gaggle ? why its cronig, icono and the rest here. I just love liberals so much.

herre is another great opposite thing, like god watching a child die. the libs and co2 and climate change. Over and over they say co2 is bad. Hmm, I guess they dont know you get water vapor from burning hydrocarbons or even wood. water holds heat much, much more than co2. Your hot water tank uses 18 % of the US energy. So here we have the best simplest dialectic, two opposites and the liberals get even that wrong. You gotta give the libs credit, for like ahriman, they keep doing the same stupid things over and over and never learning. Cronig where are you ? thats strong retarded force in operation, outside the boundaries of the 3d world , newtons world we live in. Try living in heisenberg world libs, you might learn something. all based on science, not blather like cronig and his gaggles.

some commenters would like Steiner to sit on a pole, then explain the scientific valve of the experiment, maybe make it a Thanksgiving tradition

rumor has it some commenters would like Steiner to sit on a pole, then explain it scienific value

so who has the worst record in posts here, why its the libs like cronig no science just blather. criticizing but no facts. Who would the ancients say is driving him. Why the man himself, ahriman, who always accuses. Thoughts for sure are ethereal and cronig has a mindful of dumb ones.No science ,philosophy etc. Hey cronig, that list i keep asking for ?
