that is pretty cool. anyway, it's cool to see the site is not condemning just saying there are two sides, but we are here for everyone. If at all interested, check out the site. if not, scroll to different post or the random pics. ha

if only the people in this video were all from her district, well then things would bound to be changed. but who knows..............
I'd be interested to know if this was some political deal, or some church deal. I think its wrong when people try to back up biggotry and hatred behind a religious "sin" card. It's no surprise that a religious speaking engagement would mention a stance against homosexual behaviour, but it's quite another to come up with crazy ideas that one group of people is a threat or to blame as a force wanting to change the US. And indeed it's not any one group or sin that is driving man away from God. That is no secret agenda of any one group, a Christian would say it's the quite obvious agenda of satan in the world of men. sin nature has been alive in man since the fall of Adam. We've been seperated from God by Sin ever since. (which is why Christians believe in Jesus as the reconnect) Whether you believe that to be sexual sin, (adultery for some, homosexuality for others) or lying, or cheating, or ignoring the starving and poor, gluttony, pride, gambling, drugs, alcohol, etc etc etc , it's nothing new under the sun. None are excluded from God's love and mercy.
I'm embarrassed for Oklahoma that once again biggotry and hatred shows its ugly face in the state congress of my home state.... dang it all!
This woman has hopefully just lost any re-election in OK, I believe that much, and her stance has only strengthened the opposing voices. I'm glad I'm not in OKC to see the liberal rag "OK Gazzete"'s awful dissection of this one.... good job whoever had the tape recorder. excellent display of ignorance!

I am a few days from my vacation here. next monday I fly out to dubai.
I have already packed, ha. Today i am going to the embassy to get my passport looked at, my 6 month visa says single entry so I want to make sure I can get back in the country when i return.
last night at the mess hall while i was in line, this guy came up from behind and shook my hand and said hello, he was getting seconds on his plate. anyway that was random but of course I looked him over and will be keep my radar on. no big deal.
work is going well. I'm getting a nice afghan carpet next week designed by one of the students. I'll post a pic when I get it. the same student also gave me a small painting he made last week with "to my kind brother" signed on the back. ahhhh

we found out another teacher is arriving but not sure when.
I have a new class again and will be working hard until vacation to catch them up. There was a great seaman kid here teaching them English for a while, doing a great job and all, but this class is really behind.
There are a lot of interesting new guys on base. the one belgian guy I mentioned was right in front of my treadmill the other day, doing all sorts of ab stuff. It will take a while getting into routine on base before getting know people. like the last 3 months.
I forget if I mentioned my roomie and the other teacher getting back at 2:30am in the morning the other day. Well I here from this guy on my hall that the base police were looking for him at lunch yesterday, something about being drunk at the base gate the other night... WOW something tells me they somehow got off base or something? who knows. but I'm waiting to see if anything comes of it all or not. I didn't mention it to either of them.
Oh yeah I heard that from a new friend I have on base, this major from Connecticut. very cool dude I end up sitting with at dinner a lot.
