    I have taken testosterone all of my life because I do not produce it. I am wanting to join the national guard but i am not sure if this will disqualify me. If you have prior military experience those answers would be preferred but any help would be great..

    Just a quick note to mention how great I think it is that this is inoorpcrated into the website. As Youth Leader at St G's I rarely get to hear Rev CJ's sermons as I'm involved with our youth group. I have really enjoyed taking time out of my Monday to hear the Word. Thanks CJ Scott Currie

    Just guessing here but...maybe if we could end and outlaw warfare... I'm sure that some would miss the good old day of "war profiteering", but this is for the greater good...right?

    It doesn't really seem right, that the new education idea you are pushing here, the BLUE SCHOOL, is actually a private school, yes they say it is not for profit, but they ask for an admission fee, and for full time K-4th it is more than $ 31,000 per year. And even though I am a fan of Sir Ken Richards, I don't see him doing anything for public education, no he gets on the board of a private school which costs more than some universities. Seems rather elitist and not really a new idea.

      *rolls eyes* ...and everyone has learned exactly what? That you're so able to point out the faults of a better person's writing skills? You use your obviously superior literary skills in an effort to make yourself appear smarter at another's small you seem. Sleep well and dream large, giant.

        Criticizing someone for pointing out a news editor's mistakes? Since when was being unintelligent honorable and desirable? Are you a supporter of Rick Santorum? Seems so.

      March Forth has now moved from preprcutodion phase to prcutodion phase. This process will take 3-4 weeks. Following this phase, it will enter review for two weeks. If no corrections needed, publication will begin which will take another two weeks. Hopefully the book will be available by August 1st if all goes according. Of course we don't live in a perfect world so I will keep you all posted.

    Why Jacque Fresco is not mentioned on this list is offensive.
