Dang, guess I'm so bad I can even PO a jehova witness! I don't know whether to be embarassed or proud.

Most of these posts need to be removed.

Mr Hopkins politely answered the question. No proselytizing in his statement either.

According to Witnesses, the scriptures do not call for the celebration of the birth but of the death of jesus.

Why does the JW allow for this disparagement of a member of a religion when it comes to Witnesses?

Autie, Basement Boy is a Jehova's Witness. Whatever he witnessed, he is severely traumatized. He keeps calling me from a pay phone at 2am. He just giggles and screams a lot, then he hangs up.

More of course.Seems like there's a new grandbaby every year.

We voted not to purchase gifts this year. We are 23 to 57 in age and can afford to buy whatever we want. If we had little kids it would be different. My son did talk us into buying a Wii on sale --he gets an employee discount also--which we have had fun with and will break it out when the family gets together. And yes the wine and beer have been replenished for the festivities.

I wonder if Danny was at Southwind to see Burlesque?

No Christmas at Danny's house. Wow that must really suck. I always wondered, what did they all witness anyway? Is the Watchtower printed on re-cycled paper? Why has it been the end of times for so many years now? Hollis, can you help me out here?

Definitely more. I have been hunting down poor unfortunate folks who are not yet allowed to become citizens and buying them all the lovely things they deserve so they will see that this country is great and they will be inspired to become the most productive members of society and then joy will snowball until everyone is living in a land of eutopia where everything is free. It's a wonderful life.

The same, they have not raised the prices at the Free State Brewery this year.


autie 3 years, 4 months ago

More or less, but considerably less of more than more of less.

Being the devout person I am, I like to buy spiritual gifts for those on my list...

This one is my favorite. Just fill it with water and ask for a miracle.

That is what I have a wife for.
