And in my defense.......
NONE of you could possibly have been through what I have.
Don't even try to go there.......it's a nasty place and I'd rather not revisit it today. Don't make me go there. Not today, please.


I have enough to deal with knowing that those who I once counted as friends have mostly dismissed me.


Listen Mark
We all have problems, so don't dismiss everyone else's as trivial when compared to yours.
Hell, you aren't the only alcoholic depressive in the world but I think you'll find that most of whatever is bothering you will go away if you lay off the booze.

To complain that "friends" have dismissed you is to minimize the confrontational positions you take with people in here.
Give up on the megalomania and your overestimation of your position as a member of the project and you may find people somewhat more receptive to your musings.

You seem to have invested too much of your self image and identity into being Mr. Big Crunch while ignoring basic human decency.

Notice that I've said all of this without dropping F bombs.

NO, church and state are NOT separate in my view........they are one and the same.


How would this work in your mind?
Who's beliefs represent this blended state you seem to want?
Does the president get to decide which version of faith is the truth, or is it congress or the senate?

If an Odin worshipper becomes president will you switch over?
What if a satanist were president?
Where's the cut-off if there's no seperation between church and state?

Think fast because there's a Mormon in the race.
If he wins, will you put on some magic underwear and join him?

Maybe it's best that America sticks to it's constitutional government and leaves religion out of the mix.

This is Paul Harvey... Good day!


Yep, that's what happens to Mark's trials and tribulations threads when they're moved out of the Cafe over to Politics. The thread dies quickly.
Good day.

I thought your first post was a channeling of Randy Travis

Well, then, it must be political. I mean, so many country songs are political. Just look at Toby Keith and The Dixie Chicks!

I don't follow the lives of country music stars much since the mid-80s. But, boy, we sure are discussing politics, aren't we, just as Mark intended when he started this thread, right?
