How do you gauge the
character of a man?

Bear with me on this one. We are all flawed individuals. We´re all sinners. So let´s get that part out of the way. But there should still exist a means by which the measure of a man can be taken, whether or not he is someone you´d want to hang with, someone you´d want your children to look up to, someone you´d want your daughter or niece to marry. A few of them come to mind quickly.

A man has integrity if he realizes we are not evolving as a society, if he values and follows morality, if he knows that god, wife and family are paramount. If he keeps his promises, and never, NEVER betrays.

By what should we judge a person if not by their actions?
How they smell? Their favorite color of underpants?
Their parallel parking acumen? A person´s actions are
the ONLY accurate means by which to judge them.

I´ll take Tim Tebow over John Elway any day - I saw how he treated Tim when Tim was with the Broncos.

I´ll take Tim Tebow over just about anybody and not just in football.

People who hate religion find any excuse to belittle someone of faith. They proclaim that they are atheists and then go out of their way to trash believers. Looks like they would just ignore the church people but they can´t for some reason.

Tebow had the patience of a saint all year being benched. He finally got tired of the humiliation and now he´s being called a crybaby. Jerks

Saw an interesting penalty in the Steelers game Sunday. A guy just made a sack,went to his knee and did some sort of bow and arrow thing and was slapped with a 15 yard penalty. It´s called something like going to the ground celebration.I wonder if this penalty was passed with Tebow´s name on it.

I know nothing of football or Tim Tebow.

I heard a great measure of a person´s character a few years back. A person´s character can be judged on what they do when they think they will not get caught.

FTA: ~~The sort of hate they have for Tim Tebow is based in my view for their own hatred of religion in general, christianity in particular and Mr. Tebow specifically. It seems more than obvious to me.~~

Quite obvious to many.

Folks, this is a football matter. Tebow is not a sinner, but he committed a huge sin in the football world.

It doesn´t matter what Tebow was willing to do on gameday. If he told Ryan that he would not go in the game for the Wildcat, that is the same as quitting on your team. Tebow has to live with this now. I suspect Tim Tebow will be just fine.

Acording to the article, #10, Tebow did no such thing. The attacks were all based upon a lie.

#10, etc. Check out "Tebow Fires Back" on Drudge. Apparently the liars even lie about what Tebow didn´t say. Tebow DOES have the right to be frustrated; nothing UN-Christian about that. He may not be a great QB in the purest sense...BUT he IS a great football player.

How quickly they forget the run Tebow had with Denver. With a team that knows how to use him, he will have another great "run" and the talking heads will, yet again, eat crow.

How to gauge a man´s character, if he gathers his humility, leaves the stink of the elitist New York press wallowing in the sewage of their self-importance, and lets his actions speak louder than their trivial words.

A good indicator of a person´s character is how they treat and behave towards those who are less powerful than themselves.

Whoopi Goldberg — an admitted medical marijuana user who smokes from a vaporizing pen to relieve the pain of glaucoma — is going to be putting her pot knowledge to good use, taking on regular columnist duties for The Denver Post as its cannabis expert. Her first column, including the pros of smoking from a “tape pen,” made its debt on Thursday, the New York Post reported. In it, she explained how marijuana actually helps with the pressure and pain of glaucoma and that using a vaporizing pen — rather than rolling a joint or breathing from a bong —

Mystery Plane In Tehran Belongs

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

   

 



 
Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money
Washington Examiner, by Shikha Dalmia    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:26:59 AM     Post Reply
In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
