The big ag companies fight with millions of dollars to say GMO products are OK. If so, be proud and Read Morelabel your product as GMO. They don' because they don't know the outcome of eating it. It has never been scientifically proved. They tell you that cross pollinating is comparable to GMO. It is. But with this caveat. It is cross pollinated with its own naturally occurring genes. The GMO that big ag does is manipulate the genetic structure artificially. Now no insects or birds populate farm fields. Especially those that pollinate all our other crops. And one of the biggest sins of GMO is to try to create a bigger yield so we can run our engines. Food for fuel. FFF.even the farmers I know think that is wrong.

I want to apologize for my unbecoming comments. There is no way I can tell you what is happening in Read Moremy life. Thing is when I see a post start off as yours did, the hares on the back of my neck raise. No introduction, just ranting about something non Jolietan. Am not sure why you believe the things you do, but the things I believe are because I believe Americans should help other Americans. I hear people say"get a job". Where are they? In India or China. The jobs left here will not support a family even if they worked 24 hours a day. Other than that you know nothing about me. 65 is not old. The education I have I still use on a daily basis. I am very tech savy. About as cutting edge as I can be. All I want to do is say I am sorry for the not so nice things I said, because I know nothing of you. Tim

Anyone thinking that voting straight Democrat or Republican is going to fix what's wrong with thisRead Morec ountry is crazy. We have become a country of the haves (government employees) and the have not's (everyone else). We need to stop voting party line and vote for the individual. We need term limits! We need to take our country back from the DC idiots!

Herc... I agree! I do vote Democrat at times. Well, particularly in Joliet and Will County.Read MoreDependin g on the candidate.

The point is that one has to first acknowledge exactly what the bible actually says beforeRead Moreinjecting their interpretation. That is why there are so many different interpretations now, people put what they think it says ahead of what it actually says. You agree that the bible does clearly say that satan did tempt Jesus? Now, do you also agree that the bible clearly says that G'd cannot be tempted?

As for my error in saying "in heaven" I will acknowledge that. Some years ago I read a Read Moretranslation that said it that way but it is much easier, and more beneficial to our dialogue, to acknowledge my error and your correctness.

Is that the one you say was buried in the earth for THREE DAYS and THREE NIGHTS—but can onlyRead Morec ount two nights and one day because he was buried FRIDAY NIGHT and rose on SUNDAY MORNING which is only two nights and one day?

Is that the same one who celebrate by LYING TO CHILDREN about a rabbit bringing dyed chicken eggs?Read MoreA nd is the day you talking about called EASTER which is the name of a pagan goddess condemned in the Old Testament?
Amin Falaq April 17, 2014 at 10:24 PM
This Easter you refer to, the one that comes on a different date of each year because of itsRead Moreconnect ion with the pagan spring rituals that were calculated to occur on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox….yes I am quite familiar with it.

He means some blacks, that is true for some but not all. We must be careful with how we word andRead Moreper ceive things. If everything you speak about talks about dividing among races then the agenda is racism. We were not made different colors to dominate over one another but to celebrate and bring uniqueness to the table. Every awareness isn't beneficial awareness some can cause strife with each other.

Of course there are no absolutes in creation. But black people have an annual income of more thanRead Morea trillion dollars. And since the evolution of integration black people have failed to spend in their own community to build communities like Rosewood and Black Wall Street were. I grew up on the tail end of segregation and I can remember when South Chicago street was lined with black businesses. Right now black people spend over 6 billion dollars a year on beauty products (most of it to less black looking) outside of their own community. Many of them will spend 2, 3 hundred dollars or a pair of shoes, but won't even have 20 or 30 dollars worth of book in their homes. To tell black people what their problem is, is not about dividing the races, it is about identifying our weaknesses. The same with my son. If he is falling short of his potential in taking advantage of opportunity--I will bring it to his attention. Don't you think that is the right thing to do?
