Flirts? or Perverts?!?

You know, I love Yahoo's instant messenger. It helps me keep in touch with members of my company team, meet new prospects, and chat with friends.

But lately, this week especially, I can't get much done for all the men (I guess they're men) wanting to talk, men I don't know, men who haven't even bothered to complete their profile, and men who within the first couple of lines want you to view their webcam!

I even created my own line to show by my name when I'm available which says...

"NO ROMANCE PLEASE!"

But it doesn't work.

So, now I just click ignore if there is no profile.

I could use the stealth mode, but some of my new business friends need a little help now and then, and so I want to be available to them.

Honestly, what is the world becoming?

What happened to integrity, character, dignity, and ethics?

What happened to the sacrament of sanctified intimacy?

Is there no shame - no conscience - no spiritual beings within these perverted human shells?

Stem Cell Research

This latest propaganda on stem cell research is just too much. Why do Americans, for the most part, believe everything they hear on TV?

Facts - there are now nearly 400,000 frozen embryos available for research.

Problem - many of these aren't considered to be primo because of some experimentation with mice, etc, etc.

Fact - stem cells can be harvested from many sources, not just embryos.

Fact - the embryo must be living in order to retrieve the stem cells which then KILLS the embryo.

Picture this - your child has a fatal disease which can only be cured by harvesting the stem cells from a sibling embryo. Will you get pregnant just to harvest these cells? Will you kill one child to save another?

It's that simple.

It's wrong.

Stem cell research is good, but it's been going on since the 1980s with no conclusive results, and no advancements made that can help anyone.

We are putting the cart lightyears ahead of the horse.

This is not even a topic worth debating - yet.

Never Argue with a Woman

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, "Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?"

"Reading a book," she replies, (thinking, "Isn't that obvious?")
"You're in a Restricted Fishing Area," he informs her.
"I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading."
"Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."

"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.

"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.…
