    Helping People

    Where is the line between helping someone, and having to let go and just allow them the chance to stand on there own two feet? I think good people, people who care so much struggle with this, they care so much about another person, that they are afraid to let go. How do you know...

    Could The Holocaust Have Been Prevented?

    I am "anti" evil, corruption, greed, murder, robbery, rape, etc. I believe in teaching people to be totally self sustainable and to defend themselves! If the faithful Jewish people targeted by the cowardly, spineless, nazi devil regime were taught by their religion how to...

    Let's Have One...

    Stormynightsky and I had one the other day, and I'm feeling quite philosophical.  I asked her if she was up for one, but she's gone now.  Anyway, this is mainly for her, but anyone is invited to join!  Lets have a philosophical discussion.  Topics anybody?
