    Default Where it the World is Ballvalve ?

    What has happened to Ballvalve ?

    I have not seen him post for awhile.

    Does anyone have a clue ?


    Maybe Ian and Ballvalve went on a Carnival Cruse or something.

    Ian and I got burned out, took that cruise, jumped ship and are sipping tequila and young nubile island girls, in a far off land.

    We'll be shooting off some roman candles while enjoying the coconut milk.

    Beats all hell out of pipe dope and corroded valves, and how many turds a Drake can swallow versus a Kohler. If you eat more fruit and less prime rib, any damn toilet will suffice.

    And we will have Large Turds for the Drake tomorrow.

    T-Bone here, and corn on the cob.


    Have a safe 4th.

    I'm so glad Don..................

    I try to keep this family friendly. So I hope everyone has fun with the family today. And if that's not possible, at least get together with friends.
    One this one day, we are a very large family. It's hard to believe that something new was started in 1776.
    That was still many generations later then when Europeans stated coming here in boats. It had already been settled using the land bridge on the West, but it was the folks that arrived on the East Coast that set up a new government that we call the United States today. I had parts of my family that landed in 1620 in Plymouth. And here we are almost 400 years later. Wow!

    Sue's friend from Egypt wished her a happy 4th on her Facebook.
    Even in the Middle East they are happy for our 4th.

    He was enjoying what happened there yesterday. (in Egypt)

    That is amazing what happened in Egypt.

    I just hope we (as in the USA) don't stick our nose in their business.

    The Gov seems to want to rescue the World.

    I heard there was some excitement in your neck of the woods yesterday. In California also.


    Have a Great day.

    I just looked that up the Seattle news. Man arrested with a stolen truck and weapons.

    I was a little worried being at a big 4th with my son's band playing. By the time of the fireworks there was barely standing room in the park.

    Here is the US; we try to keep religion out of politics, hoping that everyone can practice theirs peacefully and with respect for others.
    I come from seven kids, all thinking differently, and it can be loud when we get together, but we also enjoy the differences.

    No.
    The US has always believed in the freedom to practice your religion. There is no State religion here.
    We also have freedom of speech.

    There are those that would like to impose a religion though. Not by law, but by their opinon. Like somehow they know "best" for others.

    Where were you raised?

    But that's very different than keeping it out of politics. Talk to a devote republican and some religion will spring its ugly head sooner or later ever time.
    Have you looked at the writing on a dollar bill? "In God We Trust" ??? And they call that a separation of church and state??? Huh?

    We also have freedom of speech.
    Sort of.. A lot more than others that's for sure.. but its not complete freedom anymore..

    There are those that would like to impose a religion though. Not by law, but by their opinon. Like somehow they know "best" for others.
    Again, go talk to a republican and watch how fast they try to pass laws based on their religions.

    Where were you raised?
    I was born and raised in a distant and strange land far far away.. Most folks call it Detroit..

    You guys in Detroilt are taking a beating.
    It would be nice start up that place, what with all the housing and stuctures in place already. In the Seattle area, we are way short on roads, and the commute is extending both ways now. Even staggering work hours isn't helping much.
    Seattle has the sound on the West, Lake Washington on the East, then you have Bellevue, with Lake Sammamish on the East of that. Add to all of that, a pretty hilly area, and we can barely drive around it anymore.

    I think it's strange that religion is used in politics at all. Somebody somewhere, showhow, figured it was a way to sway a vote.
    I would like to see votes based more on jobs and living quality. I don't see how religion would figure into that, but somebody always finds a way to stick it in there.

    I visited India this Winter, home to many world religions. And they add a few more for good measure. They seem to be pretty easy going about it. Like in the US, there seems to be a temple, church or gathering place on every corner. It was one of my favorite trips I've done.

    On the money, I always prefered

    E pluribus unum

    "
    Out of many, one"

    I'm not actually in Detroit.. On the very rare occasion I have to go there, I take a friend and we both take guns.
    I'm actually about 90 minutes north of Detroit in farm country.

    My vote isn't swayed by religion or jobs or even living quality. My vote goes to the candidate who is most in line with science and logic. Unfortunately, that usually means I have to go with a democrat.. I say it is unfortunate because every time I go to vote, I don't feel like I'm voting for someone I want, I feel like I'm voting against someone I don't want. This is the state of our union now. Republicans and Democrats are so polarized these days they have poisoned everything. The problem is that the media won't give equal coverage to an independent candidate and so they have no chance of winning.

    American's think they are voting for the person they want but in fact, your just being given a narrow choice between two candidates the media wants.
