I hope you understand what prison means in that q

It makes me estatic to see my students dig into the Bible.
Yes pawian, that is Matthew 5:25. Very good. (puts gold star on pawians forehead)
Now take it to the next step.
And when you stand to pray, if you hold anything against another, forgive it, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your trespasses as well".

Luke 6:37. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.
What better way to spend a Sunday in quarantine then debating what really matters in your life.
We just had church today. Hoot !
Thanks for your time Buddy. :-)))))))))

forgive it,

Forgiveness is selfishness as it is meant to make you (editorial) feel better. Vengeance is more natural as it eliminates repeaters.

Right JiMMY?

I was just quoting scripture.
Does scripture rattle you that bad ?

Forgiveness is selfishness as it is meant to make you feel better.

Taking a good healthy crap makes you feel better too but I wouldn't categorize it as selfishness.

Vengeance is more natural as it eliminates repeaters.

Not always as it sometimes make things a lot worse.

I went for a tour into town awhile ago.
My gosh you could shoot your gun down main street and not worry about hitting anyone.
It is a damn ghost town with just a few cars on the road out getting some fresh air like I was.
All I could think of is where are the people going to get money to buy food next week as they are all out of work.

This is a resort area and the ski resorts, restaurants, motels, Casino all are shut down.
This is going to be getting very interesting real soon.

Luke 6:37. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.

Yes, this is a good excuse for all kinds of heinous acts committed by morally corrupt people. Yes, I did him in cold blood coz he was a useless weed for the society. Don`t judge me, though, if you are true Christians.

That is your kind of thinking. :):)

The illustration shows the situation in Poland right now. Probably similar in other places:
newsweek.pl/koronawirus-w-polsce-opowiesci-z-domowej-kwarantanny-jak-sobie-radzimy-zamknieci-w/z4dyd5b

Today I have to go out and do our weekly shopping. Ooops. :)

America, despite its many fautls and the undoubted greed of many, also has an amazing spirit of community and generosity. Volunteering and community activism is huge in America so nobody will starve because people will take care of each other. Big businesses will also see the oppotunity for PR and you'll find that places like MacDonalds will probably come to the rescue by donating some of their raw ingredients and stock in the form of food parcels. Something will definitely be done.

In Ireland we have loads of local initiatives going on from small businesses and private citizens, where the elderly and other vulnerable groups are being checked on and taken care of. It won't be any different in the USA.

Funnily enough, I was just reading that McDonalds are closing all their outlets in Ireland for the time being as they can't maintain social distancing at the drive-thru takeaways and they will be distributing their stock to local community groups over the next few days.

Atch you being from Ireland know how valuable potato's can be in hard times.
I live not far from one of the biggest potato farms in the world.
Check out this video of them harvesting 24 tons of potato's per acre.
kitchenfarms.com/
I have a connection there to buy the culls for $10 for all I can load in my pick-up truck. (1000 pounds)
They may have some blight on them which peels of with the skin, no big deal.
When things get tuff I will go get a truck load and take them to my church to give away free.
When they get picked through and the good ones are gone I give the rest away for animal feed.
We are so blessed where I live.

farms in the world

We have more than 1.4 million farms smaller than 10ha in Poland , food no problem around these parts.

I'm just rotating my spuds in the cellar (well wife is) in with the new and out with the old to make seed potatoes for planting.

Yeah

Life is Good and God is Great.

Can I brag a tad here please.
This one farm up the road from me grew over 60 million pounds of potato's in one season.

I went to the shopping centre today. Alone to reduce the risk. I thought there would be hardly any people but no, a few dozen of them were shopping too.. Only one or two were wearing masks. No shortages, a lot of chicken. But - funny thing - nuts, almonds, pistachios etc vanished from bulk sale shelves. Checkouts had plexiglass screens. I was lucky to choose a talkative cashier. An elderly lady, completely relaxed, not afraid of the virus at all. But she told me a lot of her colleagues took time off work. And the business has definitely slowed down after initial panic last week.

One more thing - I read about it and saw in reality - DIY stores are sieged - driving past one I saw hundreds of parked cars. Poles, taking advantage of free time, are doing their homes.

Screens in front of checkouts.

The bad part of it that is going to hurt Poland is that people live in such close quarters.
I know a guy that caught it flying back from California to Detroit Michigan on a commercial flight.
Two days after he got back he noticed a dry cough and scratchy throat and the next day a very soar throat and a runny nose.

The third day he got a headache from hell that even after taking several Vicodin, that didn't even touch it, he knew that he was in trouble.

He was suffering in pure hell with this violent headache (24 hours) that he called to get tested to see if he had it.
He was told to stay home and self quarantine to see if the symptoms would get better. (he was refused testing at that point)
His doctors office did call him back the next morning to find out the poor guy had improved considerable with the headache dissipating even though he was very weak and had muscle and joint pains.

He was told to stay in lock down quarantine for two weeks from the day he first noticed the first symptoms.
The sixth day he was almost back to normal again.
The best case scenario is that you don't show any symptoms at all and the worst case (short of dying) is what I just described of what my friend experienced.

I pray for the best for everyone in Poland.

Thanks man :) hope you are all safe there too.

You able to go fishing still ?

johnny reb
24 Mar 2020  #137

Yes, I go way before daylight so no one knows I am even there.
Fish quit running up the river though as the wind blew the ice from Lake Michigan back into the bay the river runs into.
Once we get a good East wind the ice will blow out of the bay again and it will be fish on. (pun intended)
They are calling for six inches of snow and nasty weather this week which will make the fish run up the river and the week - end warrior fishermen home.

I should clean up.

I went to the shopping centre today.

Finally, old people in Poland appear to have got the hint and they're now distancing themselves from others. When I went out on Monday, I had to shout at an old woman to back off and give me space, because she was trying to push behind me so she could get her stuff onto the conveyor belt at the till.

See they have over head cameras here delph so you have to be clever because for yelling at someone here in the U.S. (especially a female) you can be arrested for verbal assault which is up to a $500 fine and 90 days in jail.

Those neo feminist know how to play that card very well.
Next time just turn around and start coughing all over them and watch how fast they back off.

This is why you should ALWAYS keep your trolley behind you this way you will always have distance between you and the burak behind you, once you get to the till just step forward and move the trolley to the front , or if in Lidl to its assigned spot at the side of the till.

I'm an expert in defensive shopping and burak distancing, so feel free to ask questions during this crisis

Put your pork chop package at the back and on top of the trolley while it is behind you and take it off very last if it is a burka and a cheap pair of woman's underwear there if it is a long beard.

This will keep them from pushing your trolley at you.

Man these English teachers love to correct you,just like in real life.some of my lawyer friends who would tell you about law even driving and how to beat it.

She is a very short person Cargo and I am sure it went over her head that I spelled it that way intentionally.
I think it would be hilarious if all the women in Europe started wearing them as a new fad.
You would see them walking their dogs, buying pork in the stores and sitting out on the side walk café having a beer.
The poor Muslim men wouldn't know who was who and who was sinning. lol

I see on the news that Chicago is not listening to the shelter in order.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot threatened to shut down public areas on Wednesday after becoming increasingly frustrated with people disobeying the Chinavirus stay-at-home order.
The mayor's warning also made clear that anyone breaking the new measure would be fined or even possibly arrested, reported CBS Chicago.
The best thing that could happen is to just start shooting these people on sight.
After one day the mush heads would get the point
