Seven Deadly Sins

Be Honest!
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

At one point or another in my life I have been guilty of all.
GOD Bless America, have mercy upon this country and stop the evil that has a stranglehold on our Republic from prevailing.

   Only Lust for me and when that ends I hope the woman next to me calls the Funeral Home.
No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

'Fear' is the root of all seven.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

1, I'm pleading the fifth.

2, if there is any deadly sin of which I am more guilty of than any, it's the eighth deadly sin of despair, or acedia as they used to call it.

That has never been my thing. I have been beat up all the way along, and been so low as to be living in the sticks under a 10x10 tarp for months. The trick is to find beauty in everything.

I will recommend something that will jack your mind over. The only book by a shrink  that I put any store in:


Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl


Chew on that and see what happens.  :beer:

Probably all of them at one point or another in my life, but never pride. I can’t think of one time in my life I have been proud of anything I’ve accomplished.


As for despair, it’s despair that makes us appreciate the good. I know I’m going through a mega depressive state right now, where I’m almost.  ahenodonic  but I know it probably will get better. Past experiences say it usually does, even if it takes a year or two


It would also be interesting to see what of the 7 heavenly virtues we’ve done,
