Since Nov 30, 2011
My current Christian/Catholic library at home is nearly some 250 books, maybe half of them read. With a greater part of those read, reviewed up on Amazon. Currently have formally read/studied the Bible(OT/NT)front to back 4 times on my 5th. Became a “Conservative” through Rush in his early days on national radio/TVearly 90s. Happened when I noticed that conservative/republican ideals aligned with my personal values and religious upbringing.
Education -- raised by wolves, disciplined & educated by nuns. -Two University degrees :: only rarely interested in communication,debate or a back and forth with others on this venue, but occasionally express myself in these forums although usually not directly to others. i.e. I rarely include or ping others with my comments.
In other words its important enough to me that I say it at times, but its not important that you read it, or that it gets delivered to you personally. Everything I say does not need a recipient. Unlike others(the boxtrolls), I am not looking for an internet soapbox to trumpet my purported wisdom, enlightenment, opinion, corrections, insults or just plain wrong-headedness to complete strangers, some 10-20+ times a day, delivered directly to their ping/box. A mere etiquette, not being full of myself, which seems to be lacking in many these days especially on this forum. In a nutshell, I try to practice my Christianity instead of just walloping others over the head about it or over various other sundry subjects.
Other than the above, where dull cacophony drowns out intelligent conversation, FR is a great news resource. One that I havent’ found to be out-topped.
