    The well being of someone's soul will be in jeopardy if they stop a person from fulfilling their abilities.

    I have no problem if a woman wants to be a stay-at-home Mom. But to force women to do so is simply wrong.

    What one CAN or WANT to do is of no importance compared to what one SHOULD do. That’s basic Morality/Values. Too bad we no longer acknowledge such things in most of society.

    Exactly.
    It's painfully clear that the extent of the "Resistance" from the Right will be nothing more than voting...and even that's not to be taken for granted.

    If you like Socialism and fascism....I think you're in the right place. It's definitely on the horizon.
    Even though the vast majority are in denial that it could evr happen again. They are so wrong.

    I remember you saying that life is meant to be about suffering. How does a cruise fit that philosophy?

    One thing you must know. Soccer is not the same here as it is in Europe. The real money and the better caliber of play for both male and female US Players is in Europe. US Soccer Leagues have the retreads from Europe and players that can not make it in Europe. Unlike the rest of the world, soccer is not our national sport. Baseball, Football, Basket Ball and Hockey generate the most fans. Soccer does not. Therefore, I don't believe US Soccer will go much further than it is. A High School Graduate had to decide whether to take a 4 year tuition free Soccer Scholarship or play in a European Country with a six figure salary. She chose to play in Europe.

    What the fuck are you talking about.

    The US Women just won the World Title.

    Theyre crowned as the best. Did you fall asleep?

    At first I thought you were talking about men's soccer. But then the last line, "She chose to play in Europe" popped up.

    But you are probably right. Women's soccer will probably not go any further than it is. Back to back World Cup Championships is about all it will do. Well, maybe back to back to back.

    You think a cruise is a pleasure for a self-professed Isolationist and Nationalist? I’m stuck on a ship for 7 days with thousands of people who are almost all foreigners!!! I’ve found one other American couple. Everyone else seems to be from England, Ireland, Canada or New Zealand. Of course the staff are all Asian or Central/South American as well. Do you really think that’s fun for me?
