    No she is not, I worked at HP on many initiatives and she knows it takes brains and ideas not cheap labor. The entrenched HP bureaucracy which I ran into as well created a big mess, Meg Whitman is doing a lot of what Carly wanted but the board opposed.

    OK, it depends on if you only want to change the font in a current document or so it will use that Font as the standard for all new docs you create...

    The quick one for a document you are working on goes like this...

    To slect a word or part of a sentence double click on the word or click down and select the text, it will highlight showing what you chose
    go to the menu at the top and locate the fonts tb, slelect the font you want and it will change

    If you want to make it forever let me know and I will walk you through that, not too hard at all

    Glad I could help,

  • Trump Life. The Hostile Takeover of Donald Trump

    100American to Don Corleone

    OK, I will try and follow your tortured logic...

    True, the US Government has been unmanageable for decades as its Bureaucracies and replication are protected fiefdoms of Patronage. I grew up in Chicago and it is a way of life there. All of them are for some long past imaginary reason and I understand and applaud someone with that sensibility stepping in. I wiorked at HP when Carly was CEO and I was involved in very high level projects as part of the merger. You have no idea how entrenched and stupid the workforce had become. Changing jobs was an annual ritual, and different divisions would not collaborate on deals.
    Business Silos, the bane of the Corporate world and Donald knows how to make companies work. Call him a takeover bandit or whatever you like, anyone with more that minimum brain function knows Government has become a hungry tiger with a lot of Political influence. Jobs are handed out as favors.

    I know Trump, Carly and others who have been in the real world have the guts and the brains to do so.

    The question is will weak kneed girly men who whine takeover when the next guy regardless of party affiliation is from the same “elitist clique”

    I have been out in the business world for over 40 years and your position is to me one of ignorance and innuendo, more liking something you read someone else say and now you are joining the Yeah Yeah crowd testing the direction of the Populist winds.

    In closing I would easily estimate that 50-60 % of the Current infrastructure and workforce employed by the US Government is redundant, unneeded or has failed to provide any real tangible or measurable positive impact to this Country and US, the Citizens

    This is what I do, help companies become better organized, collaborative and positive working environments and there is a lot of business

    Good Day...

    As an Ordained Minister I do not claim a Religion as to me they are constructions of Men mirroring what existed before Christ.

    The codes of conduct and everything else in the Bible are meant to educate people on the true nature of their Soul and the need to follow the ways of our Creator. As even exemplified when Christ was on earth others went around imitating him and altering the Gospel (Gods illumination of His Truths) to put them as the source.

    As to the “Feel Good” Messengers who are at the end of the day my Brothers (so stated) in Christ who alter the message to suit the crowd I give you Ezekiel 13

    Lets say God is not pleased...

    False Prophets Condemned

    1 The word of the LORD came to me:
    2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying, and say to those who prophesy from their own hearts: ‘Hear the word of the LORD!’
    3 Thus says the Lord GOD, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!
    4 Your prophets have been like jackals among ruins, O Israel.
    5 You have not gone up into the breaches, or built up a wall for the house of Israel, that it might stand in battle in the day of the LORD.
    6 They have seen false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘Declares the LORD,’when the LORD has not sent them, and yet they expect him to fulfill their word.
    7 Have you not seen a false vision and uttered a lying divination, whenever you have said, ‘Declares the LORD,’ although I have not spoken?”
    8 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Because you have uttered falsehood and seen lying visions, therefore behold, I am against you, declares the Lord GOD.
    9 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and who give lying divinations. They shall not be in the council of my people, nor be enrolled in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 10 Precisely because they have misled my people, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear it with whitewash,
    11 say to those who smear it with whitewash that it shall fall! There will be a deluge of rain, and you, O great hailstones, will fall, and a stormy wind break out.
    12 And when the wall falls, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the coating with which you smeared it?’
    13 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: I will make a stormy wind break out in my wrath, and there shall be a deluge of rain in my anger, and great hailstones in wrath to make a full end.
    14 And I will break down the wall that you have smeared with whitewash, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you shall perish in the midst of it, and you shall know that I am the LORD. 15 Thus will I spend my wrath upon the wall and upon those who have smeared it with whitewash, and I will say to you, The wall is no more, nor those who smeared it,
    16 the prophets of Israel who prophesied concerning Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her, when there was no peace, declares the Lord GOD.
    17 “And you, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people, who prophesy out of their own minds. Prophesy against them
    18 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Woe to the women who sew magic bands upon all wrists, and make veils for the heads of persons of every stature, in the hunt for souls! Will you hunt down souls belonging to my people and keep your own souls alive?
    19 You have profaned me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, putting to death souls who should not die and keeping alive souls who should not live, by your lying to my people, who listen to lies.
    20 “Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against your magic bands with which you hunt the souls like birds, and I will tear them from your arms, and I will let the souls whom you hunt go free, the souls like birds.
    21 Your veils also I will tear off and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand as prey, and you shall know that I am the LORD.
    22 Because you have disheartened the righteous falsely, although I have not grieved him, and you have encouraged the wicked, that he should not turn from his evil way to save his life,
    23 therefore you shall no more see false visions nor practice divination. I will deliver my people out of your hand. And you shall know that I am the LORD.”

    No, there is no fee it is an in place upgrade and I see it as a smart move...

    Lower the support load caused by Win 7/8/8.1 users and move them to a stable platform that mitigates the negatives and moves the whole environment forward.

    As to the subscription model it makes sense in a more mobile world to redistribute the computing power and allow the functions. Could you really imagine loading MS Office on your phone??

    Interesting for the Leader of a major “religion” (the root of the problem where people at the top like to make things up they think God will like or say he told them something and they were lying

    Just take a look at Ezekiel Chapter 13, probably less than 500 words. written almost 2000 years ago

    If he keeps this up he will have cooked his own goose, so let it go, God has this cover TIGHT

    I am having a great day because the sewer is about to be drained totally, once and for all and it will NEVER appear again

    BTW, Religions were created by Man not God, so in most ways practitioners in these structures who “modify” Gods words to tickle peoples ears so they will fill the seats and their pockets. I am a Spiritual and Ordained Minister, I will never again visit one of these houses of ill repute

    I talk to God everyday and I have not attended Church in many years

    Grow up and take responsibility and for Gods sake NEVER take ANYTHING ANY Media outlet is saying

    You know deep inside it is true but you “compromise” because it takes too much effort and there are fun things that are more important

    The Pope if he continues will be gone soon, Gods patience with all of us has RUN OUT!!

    100American to spokeshave

    How soon we forget.........

    What you have just seen is a newer version of the recent “rash” of shootings, whether Connecticut or wherever.

    Here is the deal -
    1. Find a Patsy, someone weak that under the “guidance” of a “Doctor” they are veiled legally from what they are doing
    2. The “Doctor” supposedly discovers the root cause of his malady and prescribes a heavy dosage of Head Meds to keep him in the clouds and pliable and malleable to accept what they want him to do. He is mentally helpless now and that is what they wanted, break him down and then build a new “him” reprogrammed to kill
    3. He goes on his mission, but the real purpose of this one in particular is to incite and fan the flames of “racial hatred”, justifying black anger against whites and all the follows. The recent data released about Blacks running from Obama virtually killed any chances of a Democratic president getting elected. So you get this going, most likely in other cities to show the “depth and extent” of White hatred for Blacks. People do not think much (MOB Mentality) and he will come out like the “Great Healer” and everybody will love him again and forget what an imbecile he really is, just an empty suit who does what he is told. In truth, Obama is the latest attempt at the Manchurian Candidate ploy with all this leadup needed for him to “pull us all together.

    Then the media will be all over this as they have been told to do and people will run to it as they want something and he is gonna give it to them

    If their plan sails along the end zone is Obama Leading the world against the real “Bad Guys” which means ANYONE not a Muslim

    This is the exact prelude to Armageddon

    This is a good thing, as we elected this guy and when the crap hits the fan all you can really do between now and then is get yourself right with God and fast. If you think that there is plenty of time, they have favored all of the aspects of the spoiled and lazy American populace. If this were tried closer to the actual signing and use of the Constitution we would not be having this discussion

    He and ALL of his confederates would STILL be hanging from a gallows this day

    Why you say

    Sit down and drink your kool-aid

    This country, like it or not was primarily formed for free will and exercise of what all the members of this new country wanted. Shortly after it’s signing Great Britain came over even stronger for round 2, and if not for the grace of God for dedicating this country to him we would not be here where we are today

    The Obamas hate Christians and so does Satan. HE has been crushed repeatedly trying to take over. So he will eventually fail and pas from existence, in that time and forever more there will never ever again be death, sickness, disease....

    Nothing

    Here is the catch...

    If you think that you are slip by God and sneak in, he already has you covered. You nay make to round 2, but from start to finish where all evil is gone there are a total of 9 wars and conflagrations. When God has cleared away all of this and peace and Love are eternal, only the absolutely committed and pure will be there, all others are gone forever. Then all who God has gathered as his children, His Family what happens from then forward is too marvelous to even contemplate

    And all of the fence riders?

    There is NO SALVATION for YOU once this starts, you will be blown about without anything to say or do but hope

    So at the end of it all, The entire Obama ( or whatever his actual bloodline is and everyone who has been involved in even the slightest way will be vaporized with no trial, wait till you see the players and the number of them your blood will boil, but worry about your own butt versus singing ding dong the “xxxx” is dead

    The God takes the next, and the next until it is all cleaned up and those who tarried are gone, no retries

    God will win but Satan and his followers are liars so he will not tell them so. He really wants to bloody gods nose so everyone will cry out Make Him God

    Note to Lucifer the Dense : God made you and he knows youthrough and Through. You were his most beloved angel, and when you started to destroy the earth around Adam and Eve it was to prevent the birth of the Messiah and thwart Gods plan. He is so blinded by his greed and lust for power God easily started his son safely and he defeated Satan’s plan by taking our sins upon himself to pay for our lives. So by accepting, embracing and living your life as he wants (God} Gets you a totally safe ringside seat to see the greatest event this Universe has ever seen

    I made my choice for God 52 years ago and I have never ever regretted it

    So now it is in your court

    CHOOSE which side you are on and stick with it, God despises fence riders and they will NEVER see Heaven

    God Bless and Keep you all

    Love and Light, I pray you make the right choice, the result is Eternal either way, no other chance will ever be provided

    Doubt, read the bible

    Dont care...See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya

    I am in with God to the very end, and it will NEVER change as I have experienced his love and protection for far to long to betray him

    So now. look into your heart and when you are ready....

    CHOOSE!!!!!!!!!

    And you only get 1 chance, the same for everyone

    God Bless and keep you eternally, or have mercy on your soul

    100American to Smittie

    I am an ordained minister and your words display an apalling lack of understanding of who Jesus Christ was and what he gave us

    The Christian faith is about The Spirit, not the Laws. You sound like a disgruntled Pharisee or Saducee whining because Jesus gave us an individual path to God, not through them. Take a walk in the word and open your eyes. Just because a form of body relaxation was integrated into a non Christian practice does not make it UNHOLY. If I follow this idiotic premise then if a Pagan wore silk to his church and then a Christian did you all would be here self righteously saying it is a pagan thing so you are guilty. Rinse and repeat. Just to open your eyes wide look in the Bible for the passage about NOT PUTTING A STONE IN YOUR BROTHERS PATH.

    Simply put, if you do not eat pork and are invited by a friend to a BBQ and all he is serving is pork and he knows you will not eat it, he is in a way saying eat pork or go hungry. He has placed a condition on you forcing you to make a choice that in truth he has sinned. God says he made everything holy and so any attempt to leverage people with this kind of malarkey is outright shameful

    If you or the Pope (False God = NEVER MENTIONED in the New Testament as a function even contemplated. But then if you go back in the history of the Catholic “religion” it is a combination of Spiritual and Pagan churches blended together under Constantine. The Christmas Tree gambit versus The Day of Jesus Birth is a repackaged Roman Festival....

    Many many more cloaked as “religious” (read Made up by men) to backward acknowledge the root of the practice.

    What a waste, shouting about a speck in your brothers eye while your eye sockets are boarded over in self righteousness so deep you at time think you know better than God

    Read the Bible and decide for yourself, this group think ritualistic stand up, kneel, sit, talk, you talk, on and on I experienced in Catholic Church in Phoenix on Easter Sunday

    I was already a regular attendee of a non denominational church, Christ was my savior and I accepted communion during Sunday services I attended regulary. My family traveled to see relatives in Phoenix and we went to the Easter service at their church. To me as a young man it was more like a choreographed group think than the loving atmoshere i knew. When they talked abot Communion I stood up and was ready to accept.
    The told me I could NOT as I was not a “MEMBER” of the “Catholic Church”

    I was DENIED the free and open profession of my faith in a house of God on a day celebrating his resurrection and it did not matter.

    So you, If ANY of you find justification for all of these rules in the Bible and pointing at others about such nonsense is to me nothing more than a guilt trip from the Leader for his OWN purposes which are NOT OF GOD.

    Fire away but YOU MUST USE SCRIPTURE, no opinions. Your walk with God and the Spirit within and I with mine and we will seek edification and direction. I will warn you I have had this very same argument with a fellow Minister and she backed down

    Save you time

    Read about what God does to those who modify or make up what we purport he said

    God Bless, I pray he opens Your eyes and Your heart to His way, not your Popes. You have the Holy Spirit, direct link to god. Pick it up and see what he tells u

    Christ has given us the authority to heal the sick, raise the dead and all the things he did here and more.

    Matthew 10
    1. And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.
    2. Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
    3. Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
    4. Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
    5. These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans.
    6. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    7. And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
    8. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

    What I am saying is prayer is great and we call upon the Lord for his intervention, but we can heal Spencer ourselves if we have “faith the size of a mustard seed” when we ask for his healing and lay hands upon him, it is the Power of Gods words that do the work, we only speak them with faith and conviction.

    God Bless, I hope the Holy Spirit comes to you and helps you to exercise this authority

    Carly was the head of HP when I worked there, she had to fight to get things done with an entrenched bureaucracy stuck on bad habits and a lot of backbiting and diffusing her core message. When she brought in Compaq it shook things up, I am a tough sell but she was trying to do the right thing and get the company Mojo back to where it needed to be.

    I will be investigating her platform but if she is following her usual due diligence she is quite capable of telling it like it is and where she wants us to go.

    Matthew 10:8 - Heal the sick , cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received , freely give

    Each person who has accepted Christ as their savior has been given the Authority to act as Christ did and do all that he did while here on earth in his name. This is where the parable about Faith the size of a mustard seed comes in, we can heal the sick as well if we do so in unshakable faith and conviction they will be healed and they must also believe they can be and want to be

    Answer below...

    God speaks directly to their devious plans, and when he says “cut off” he means buh bye!

    Psalm 37 (King James Version)

    1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers , neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
    2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
    3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed .
    4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
    5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass .
    6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
    7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass .
    8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil .
    9 For evildoers shall be cut off : but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
    10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
    11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
    12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
    13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming .
    14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
    15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken .
    16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
    17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken : but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
    18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
    19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied .
    20 But the wicked shall perish , and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume ; into smoke shall they consume away .
    21 The wicked borroweth , and payeth not again : but the righteous sheweth mercy , and giveth .
    22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off .
    23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
    24 Though he fall , he shall not be utterly cast down : for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
    25 I have been young, and now am old ; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken , nor his seed begging bread.
    26 He is ever merciful , and lendeth ; and his seed is blessed.
    27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
    28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off .
    29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
    30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
    31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide .
    32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
    33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged .
    34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off , thou shalt see it.
    35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
    36 Yet he passed away , and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found .

    Exodus 20:12 - From the 10 Commandments

    12 Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

    Wesley explanation

    20:12 We have here the laws of the second table, as they are commonly called; the six last commandments which concern our duty to ourselves, and one another, and are a comment upon the second great commandment, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. As religion towards God is, an essential branch of universal righteousness, so righteousness towards men is an essential branch of true religion: godliness and honesty must go together. The fifth commandment is concerning the duties we owe to our relations; that of children to their parents is only instanced in, honor thy father and thy mother, which includes,
    an inward esteem of them, outwardly expressed upon all occasions in our carriage towards them; fear them, Leviticus 19:3 , give them reverence, Hebrews 12:9 .The contrary to this is mocking at them or despising them,
    Obedience to their lawful commands; so it is expounded, Ephesians 6:1 - 3.Children obey your parents; come when they call you, go where they send you, do what they bid you, do not what they forbid you; and this cheerfully, and from a principle of love. Though you have said you will not, yet afterwards repent and obey.
    Submission to their rebukes, instructions and corrections, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
    Disposing of themselves with the advice, direction and consent of parents, not alienating their property, but with their approbation.
    Endeavoring in every thing to be the comfort of their parents, and to make their old age easy to them; maintaining them if they stand in need of support. That thy days may be long in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee - This promise, (which is often literally fulfilled) is expounded in a more general sense Ephesians 6:3 .That it may be well with thee, and thou mayst live long on the earth - Those that in conscience towards God keep this and other of God’s commandments, may be sure it shall be well with them, and they shall live as long on the earth as infinite wisdom sees good for, them, and what they may seem to be cut short of on earth, shall be abundantly made up in eternal life, the heavenly Canaan which God will give them.

    Just more evidence that the Godless Progressive agenda spits in the face of God Almighty and he has taken notice!

    Matthew 10:16-28

    16 Behold , I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
    17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
    18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
    19 But when they deliver you up , take no thought how or what ye shall speak : for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak .
    20 For it is not ye that speak , but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
    21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death .
    22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved .
    23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come .
    24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.
    25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
    26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered , that shall not be revealed ; and hid, that shall not be known .
    27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
    28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able

    Imagine the pain as a something that appears on a highway as you are driving along, it seems to be blocking your way and you get off the highway trying to avoid it and take another route.

    In your mind are visions of massive accidents, tragedy and other reasons that your mind gives you to justify “avoiding” the pain and getting back on the road you were on safely

    You may find yourself driving totally off course looking for alternate routes, and while doing so either get a glimpse of the “cloud” on the freeway or hear of it on the radio. It was a very small bank of fog, it may slow you down which is in itself a message but the real learning is one of faith. Cars that kept going may have slowed but they were still heading in the right direction while you are wandering looking for alternate paths.

    Trials in our lives are Gods way of tempering us like steel to serve him and show us our need to depend on him and whatever is put in our path as a necessary part of our spiritual growth.

    In a word - FAITH

    In HIM or our perception of what might be, which is of the flesh

    Choose!

    Drive into the cloud and take appropriate precautions but stay on the road going forward. Scripture says look neither to the left or the right, and never back but a;ways forward with your heart and mind fixed on where God is leading you. Keep the eyes of your heart firmly fixed on Jesus and he will never lead you astray, he is the Good Shepherd and cares for all of his flock.

    After all, if you are on the wrong road he would give you a real detour which is again a loving way of showing (coaching) you and never beyond what you can handle

    So do not try to avoid the “pain Cloud”, it is for your benefit and in Gods time you will see if was perfect and just what you needed!

    God Bless

Claim his authority and command your body to return to normal function and be healed, do so in complete and utter faith and it shall be done

    In the Business world College is known as the new “High School” meaning that what you used to get educationally at that level now takes college to attain. I is by no means a guarantee of a job, meaningless and non focused degree tracks yield debt and no employment in the chosen dicipline.

    Trade schools and associated “blue collar” skill sets are in high and continuous demand but the perception of many is they are not as good as a degree. Look up the term “guild” and it’s provenance, the whole model is built on competency in a given discipline or trade. Colleges are good in some cases providing “theoretical” knowledge but few if any courses are taught by individuals who have ever used their knowledge in an actual work environment. Many if not most in the Edutocracy feel that there is no real difference between the two (theoretical versus practical application) and they could really care less as long as they get paid.

    Companies are looking for people now with experience using knowledge (called wisdom) and are not anxious to hire newbies looking to have them be a proving ground only to have the newly trained employee (think investment) fly off to another company. This is also a false model as company culture, systems and methods vary widely and it can be very hard to take someone who is deeply acculturated and have them adapt to a new one especially if they do not have all the right elements in place to help in the process and reinforce their way of doing things.

    Just my 2c as I have researched this subject extensively and I am no fan at all of the current college/university model as anything more than a way for them to soak up Student Loan dollars and turn out graduates who still have no clue what they can do with their degree and what they purportedly “learned”

    So then are you making the huge assumption that it was Syrian forces under Assads control that used the gas and you are upset because he telegraphed his response??

    Personally I do not believe that it was Assad’s forces at all who used the gas, what did he have to gain by doing so? The rebels, especially those aligned with Al Quaida had everything to gain as the US and others would then come in on their side and help overthrow Assad and clear the way for a Muslim Brotherhood friendly Government to be installed which to me is what the President is really shooting for.

    I spoke to a guy named “Todd” who told me they were following guidelines of not using religion to promote sales of Alcoholic beverages and besides the commercial is only “30 seconds long and they had to trim something”

    I informed him that God is Spiritual and not associated to any one religion and endowment spoken of in this key document did not specify anything more than the acknowledgement of God. Also told him it was curious that this was the part “trimmed” and he got defensive and went back to Advertising guidelines. Obviously a thinly veiled attempt to play the 4th of July message link while being PC.

    He got squishy and kept trying to dodge the question and as I let him go I said “We all make decisions and you have helped me make one”

    Sorry to burst your balloon but I am an Ordained minister, like it or not

    I do not call evil good or the other way around as you infer. sin is sin but Christ paid the price to allow us to find salvation by our belief in him

    Try John 3:16 for reference, lots more where that came from. Everlasting life, sounds like salvation and forgiveness to me. But if you are waiting for him to come to you personally and ask your forgiveness that is not something you are entitled to, God owns that

    Enough, you obviously to me have your mind made up of what others are and think, good luck standing in front of God and Jesus and explaining your actions

    It is NOT ok nor did I ever say it was, but Christ came to take on the payment for our sins and each of us is forgiven if we repent and accept him as our savior

    So are you going to say he has not repented to God (not you) and asked for forgiveness?

    You place yourself above God almighty and his rules

    By your words shall you be known

    God through his son forgave a man who crucified Jews for a living and made him a disciple. and you dare to equate Sanfords sin as greater than that and deign to judge him in place of God??

    All of them dropped their rocks and walked away rebuked...

    Her sins were washed away and in the eyes of God Almighty they existed no more

    100American to vladimir998

    The Church is one of spirit and not of structures, deacons, bishops and the like. He never organized a “Church” as we know today, read the Bible and you will find he did not proclaim the creation of buildings and structure but of acceptance.

    I challenge you to show where in scripture he lays out the “Organization” of the current churches with the layers and all of the titles and such. Christ came to free all of us from the intermediaries, not to reinforce that which had been part of the Judaic culture before he came.

    No one before his Life, Death and Resurrection but a very select few had been given the gift of the Holy Spirit which was given to ALL believers in Christ as our direct personal connection to God our Father. Hence the name the Holy SPIRIT (note not church) Christ refers to the church in the sense of a common acceptance and faith in him being the Son of God, a body of people not a building or anything needed to be “managed” by layers of folks.

    My spiritual mentor who is well known in faiths around the world was a minister in church for over 27 years and burned out trying to follow the “rules” of the religion he was ordained in. He brought me into the awareness of “home fellowship” which to me is far more in line with what Christ wanted versus overly legalistic theocrats who seem to think they can “interpret” what Christ was saying to provide cover for themselves to belong to the “structure”

    BTW I am an ordained minister in a non denominational “church” and I use no pulpit, have no buildings and no others who need to have a title such as Deacon, Bishop or the like. I hold no ill will towards them, I follow what Christ teaches in the Bible and have I will continue down this path.

    And last, spirituality is where many have gone, I see beauty of God each morning during my prayers and meditations (conversations really) with God when the sky changes colors. It like us is HIS creation and far too many “religions” try to lay claim to knowing what is and is not acceptable and even denigrate people of other beliefs (Pentacost Vs insert other church here)as we are right and you are wrong

    God Bless and keep us, all of us, we are all his Children and not separate families.
