Favorite Quotes

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?”

    Well, Mr. Mark we have another wild one in the polls getting all irate over a harmless comment. I'm getting tired of this now. These kinds of people need to relax.
    I just found out that this hot-headed "Sharon" is a friend of a lady who gave me a hard time on a poll last week. I figured they knew each other.
    I don't think this is over, I just commented to her that I wasn't meaning to offend and she probably won't accept it. I always seem to go to the wrong polls. =/

    There is this "Winner" named "Jay" and has a chopper as an avatar and he has me blocked, still! It's from way back but he is a jerk when it comes to replies.
    One time he was being obnoxious and insulting our state of Ca. over some post question. I don't look for fights on here and I know you don't either. I gave him lip right back that time and he blocked me for it. I had to block one other guy a long time ago because he was being degrading and wouldn't quit replying to me.
    that's a good time to cut someone off at the knees! =D
    If you don't already know this "Jay" clown you will see him around sooner or later.
    He isn't always commenting on things, just now and then. "Balladeer" is another "Winner!" =D

    That "poster" is weird doing that. I figured maybe she was doing that before and prolly to others as well since you mentioned she did that on a reply of yours before. I won't reply to any of her crap anymore!!! She is nonsense and whacko!!
  • jules 2014/03/02 23:40:27
    Oh yeh, I saw the blocking post this morning and giving it some thought first. =)
  • jules 2014/03/02 23:34:27
    What in the "H" was that remark about??? Oh, does she own the site?
    This is the first time I've seen this reply come from someone posting a question.
    Excuse us for living!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D
