Re: ILG - Vaccine Hysteria

Immunizations are definitely a factor in some cases of autism. But, if the government admitted that then people would stop getting them. So, the government feels the greater good is for everyone to...

Re: ILG - Vaccine Hysteria

Re: ILG - Vaccine Hysteria

I give the CDC no credibility whatsoever. They completely messed up on Ebola. They're wrong on vaccines. They came out in favor of circumcision when there is no medical reason for it. The CDC is...

Re: ILG - Vaccine Hysteria

Re: This Makes #2 on the List, REALLY???

Really, they're just saying they support traditional marriage. They don't mention homosexuality at all. They might be firmly supporting the idea that people should get married and not just live...

Re: Prayer and help for marriage

Dichotomy Girl gave great advice.

When I had my first baby it was HARD. Really, really, really hard. I say her first 3 months were the longest 3 months of my life. My DH was not the most...

Re: Respect as Women

I think respect for women varies among churches.

I've been to some churches where women were definitely treated as second class. It was fairly shocking to me, because that wasn't how it was in...

Re: Do you carry your gun in church? Should you?

I know there are people in the church we attend that carry. I am glad they do, because churches are sometimes a target for the crazies and I want to be defended.

We used them for a couple years. It's great as an emergency phone or if you don't use a cell phone very often.

Re: Extreme Parenting -according to TIME

Well, it really is a personal decision for each mother-child pair to determine. If it were up to my daughter she would probably still be nursing now, at 5. I decided I was done when she was 3 1/2....

Re: Extreme Parenting -according to TIME

Once again, Miss B. is the voice of wisdom.

I breastfed my daughter until she was 3 1/2, never once while we were both standing with her on a stool, though. :heeheehee
