Local News / Re: Look Out !!!!!!!!!!
« on: July 24, 2008, 03:58:03 PM »
I saw a 4 wheeler on a trailer on the down ramp by hwy 28 this morning.
My husband just called me and let me know to make sure I lock up our 4 wheelers and Dirtbike because someone along Hwy 133 going to Richland from Swedeborg had there 4 wheeler stolen during the daylight hours yesterday (like 8am to 11am). He said they even had to move the peoples boat in order to get to the 4 wheeler. What is wrong with all these freaken people doing this crap? Takes alot of balls for someone to steal something right out of someones yard next to the main road.

Let's now break down the word proposal.
Pro Meaning Professional, Pose meaning to Pose in a manner to attract another, and Al short for altogether mad sexy.
So, that would mean JB Professionally Posed in a manner that might attract you to his altogether mad sexy bod.. Right..

Word it how you like but it sounded like a proposal to me..
I might add that erection is what they call it when they vote for politicians in Japan. Erection Day..

LMAO!!!   How did a political conversation turn into Rick telling us about his erection problems and JB proposing to me?!?!?! (OK, so JB DIDN'T propose to me, but he did ask me to "go steady"!!)

Oldcowpoke, I knew exactly what you were going to point out when I looked up the definitions.  I understand your point of view, and hopefully I have expressed mine in such a manner that you can understand why I don't consider anything written here as "Testimony".  Difference of opinion; we'll just leave it at that.

Rick, you REALLY have to share some of whatever it is you are smoking!!  LMAO

Let's break down the word testimony. Teste Meaning Testicles, and Mony meaning money.. So maybe it means you either have the balls, or the money to back up your statement.. LOL
Then again, maybe that's just my Opinion.. ^&*&^
  I believe we look at the words "Testimony" and "Opinion" differently.
Main Entry: tes·ti·mo·ny 
Pronunciation: ˈtes-tə-ˌmō-nē
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural tes·ti·mo·nies
Etymology: Middle English testimonie, from Anglo-French, from Late Latin & Latin; Late Latin testimonium Decalogue, from Latin, evidence, witness, from testis witness — more at testament
Date: 14th century
1 a (1): the tablets inscribed with the Mosaic law (2): the ark containing the tablets b: a divine decree attested in the Scriptures
2 a: firsthand authentication of a fact : evidence b: an outward sign c: a solemn declaration usually made orally by a witness under oath in response to interrogation by a lawyer or authorized public official
3 a: an open acknowledgment b: a public profession of religious experience

Main Entry: opin·ion 
Pronunciation: ə-ˈpin-yən
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Latin opinion-, opinio, from opinari
Date: 14th century
1 a: a view, judgment, or appraisal formed in the mind about a particular matter b: approval, esteem
2 a: belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge b: a generally held view
3 a: a formal expression of judgment or advice by an expert b: the formal expression (as by a judge, court, or referee) of the legal reasons and principles upon which a legal decision is based
So, I guess you could say that we have a "Difference of opinion" on what is considered "Testimony".  Since JB is not "under oath" here, I do not believe his words can be taken as testimony, but I'm not a lawyer, so I couldn't say for absolute certianty.  What I do know is that IF anything (speaking of a legal issue) were to ever come of this JB would have plausable deniability.  He could very easily claim that someone else posted something here (or anywhere for that matter) using his user name.  I don't believe an internet site, whether it be a chat room or a message board, exactly fits into the pervue of "testimony"...  And NO, I'm not calling JB a liar, OR saying that he would ever do that, just pointing out the obvious.

No more than he contacted me about his concerns.. He trashed this site, the people on it, and I felt the need to set the record straight.
My opinion on his reasoning for making the claim that the people on this site are bashing the military was his way of trying to gain retirees votes, due to the fact that he is losing much popularity amongst the locals, as witnessed in the Daily Guide site.. It wasn't this site that was bashing him, in my opinion the bashing of Ransdall was on the Daily Guide site before they made people sign up, people were calling him names left and right. Maybe he has us confused, he is an internet novice at best, he has proven that time and time again.

I understand.  Now, as a local businessman and a supporter, have you talked with him about your concerns?

News Release Arrest: Forcible rape & Armed Criminal Action Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King July 21, 2008 Shortly before 4:00am on July 20, 2008, the Waynesville City Police notified the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department that one of their Officers was in contact with a 21 year old female who stated she had been forcibly raped at a location in rural Pulaski County. Members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Detective unit were called out to investigate this crime. The investigation took most of the day on 7-20-08 and ended with the service of a search warrant at the suspect’s residence on Sunday evening. Items of interest in the case were recovered including a firearm. At this time the suspect, David Hall Lee, age 59, of 25968 Hwy. H, Waynesville, Mo. has been charged with forcible rape, armed criminal action, forcible sodomy and felonious restraint. His bond was set at $100,000.00 cash only.

Decision '08 / Fox: Jackson used N-word in crude off-air remarks

Fox: Jackson used N-word in crude off-air remarks

The plant earlier in it's evolution cycle may not have needed the Bee..
Most of those are myths some of them even outright frauds. THERE ARE NO TRANSISIONAL FOSSILS. pithdown man=fraud   Lucy=fraud  birds=dinosaurs=fraud  There are however examples of speciation, and adaptation but one animal has NEVER evolved into another.  And armyguy you wrote that science deals in truth?  (yes unless theres a dollar to be made or a grant to be had) Rick, if a flower needs a Bee and a Bee needs a flower. wouldn't they have to have evolved at exactly the same time? That's just one of many examples that makes Evolution implausible.

By the way I am not siding with anyone, just got my curiosity up.. I assumed there had to be something to things evolving, considering what man has done in dog breeding alone.

  • There are many transitional fossils. The only way that the claim of their absence may be remotely justified, aside from ignoring the evidence completely, is to redefine "transitional" as referring to a fossil that is a direct ancestor of one organism and a direct descendant of another. However, direct lineages are not required; they could not be verified even if found. What a transitional fossil is, in keeping with what the theory of evolution predicts, is a fossil that shows a mosaic of features from an older and more recent organism.

     Transitional fossils may coexist with gaps. We do not expect to find finely detailed sequences of fossils lasting for millions of years. Nevertheless, we do find several fine gradations of fossils between species and genera, and we find many other sequences between higher taxa that are still very well filled out.

    The following are fossil transitions between species and genera:

      Human ancestry. There are many fossils of human ancestors, and the differences between species are so gradual that it is not always clear where to draw the lines between them.

     The horns of titanotheres (extinct Cenozoic mammals) appear in progressively larger sizes, from nothing to prominence. Other head and neck features also evolved. These features are adaptations for head-on ramming analogous to sheep behavior (Stanley 1974).

     A gradual transitional fossil sequence connects the foraminifera Globigerinoides trilobus and Orbulina universa (Pearson et al. 1997). O. universa, the later fossil, features a spherical test surrounding a "Globigerinoides-like" shell, showing that a feature was added, not lost. The evidence is seen in all major tropical ocean basins. Several intermediate morphospecies connect the two species, as may be seen in the figure included in Lindsay (1997).

     The fossil record shows transitions between species of Phacops (a trilobite; Phacops rana is the Pennsylvania state fossil; Eldredge 1972; 1974; Strapple 1978).

     Planktonic forminifera (Malmgren et al. 1984). This is an example of punctuated gradualism. A ten-million-year foraminifera fossil record shows long periods of stasis and other periods of relatively rapid but still gradual morphologic change.

     Fossils of the diatom Rhizosolenia are very common (they are mined as diatomaceous earth), and they show a continuous record of almost two million years which includes a record of a speciation event (Miller 1999, 44-45).

     Lake Turkana mollusc species (Lewin 1981).

     Cenozoic marine ostracodes (Cronin 1985).

     The Eocene primate genus Cantius (Gingerich 1976, 1980, 1983).

     Scallops of the genus Chesapecten show gradual change in one "ear" of their hinge over about 13 million years. The ribs also change (Pojeta and Springer 2001; Ward and Blackwelder 1975).

     Gryphaea (coiled oysters) become larger and broader but thinner and flatter during the Early Jurassic (Hallam 1968).
The following are fossil transitionals between families, orders, and classes:
  • Human ancestry. Australopithecus, though its leg and pelvis bones show it walked upright, had a bony ridge on the forearm, probably vestigial, indicative of knuckle walking (Richmond and Strait 2000).

     Dinosaur-bird transitions.

     Haasiophis terrasanctus is a primitive marine snake with well-developed hind limbs. Although other limbless snakes might be more ancestral, this fossil shows a relationship of snakes with limbed ancestors (Tchernov et al. 2000). Pachyrhachis is another snake with legs that is related to Haasiophis (Caldwell and Lee 1997).

     The jaws of mososaurs are also intermediate between snakes and lizards. Like the snake's stretchable jaws, they have highly flexible lower jaws, but unlike snakes, they do not have highly flexible upper jaws. Some other skull features of mososaurs are intermediate between snakes and primitive lizards (Caldwell and Lee 1997; Lee et al. 1999; Tchernov et al. 2000).

     Transitions between mesonychids and whales.

     Transitions between fish and tetrapods.

     Transitions from condylarths (a kind of land mammal) to fully aquatic modern manatees. In particular, Pezosiren portelli is clearly a sirenian, but its hind limbs and pelvis are unreduced (Domning 2001a, 2001b).

     Runcaria, a Middle Devonian plant, was a precursor to seed plants. It had all the qualities of seeds except a solid seed coat and a system to guide pollen to the seed (Gerrienne et al. 2004).

     A bee, Melittosphex burmensis, from Early Cretaceous amber, has primitive characteristics expected from a transition between crabronid wasps and extant bees (Poinar and Danforth 2006).
The following are fossil transitionals between kingdoms and phyla:

  • The Cambrian fossils Halkiera and Wiwaxia have features that connect them with each other and with the modern phyla of Mollusca, Brachiopoda, and Annelida. In particular, one species of halkieriid has brachiopod-like shells on the dorsal side at each end. This is seen also in an immature stage of the living brachiopod species Neocrania. It has setae identical in structure to polychaetes, a group of annelids. Wiwaxia and Halkiera have the same basic arrangement of hollow sclerites, an arrangement that is similar to the chaetae arrangement of polychaetes. The undersurface of Wiwaxia has a soft sole like a mollusk's foot, and its jaw looks like a mollusk's mouth. Aplacophorans, which are a group of primitive mollusks, have a soft body covered with spicules similar to the sclerites of Wiwaxia (Conway Morris 1998, 185-195).

     Cambrian and Precambrain fossils Anomalocaris and Opabinia are transitional between arthropods and lobopods.

     An ancestral echinoderm has been found that is intermediate between modern echinoderms and other deuterostomes (Shu et al. 2004).
Your confusing adaptation with evolution. We are not Gods robots, we are humans with (free will) and we are designed by God to adapt to our environment and make choices. Living things DO NOT EVOLVE they die. Every experiment ever done trying to cross breed or clone has resulted in disaster. I think "DOLLY" only lived for one year. There have NEVER been any transitional fossils found anywhere in the world. We were created by God, Paco, life is otherwise impossible. If you slap a mosquito against the window, will it ever assemble itself and become alive ( all parts needed in close proximity) It won't happen even in billions of years. So what makes you think this happend in primordial soup that did not have all the parts in close proximity?

Wow, y'all been fighting about this for almost 2000 years now.. It isn't going to end this year I assure you..

He doesn't mention his stint as a St. Robert Police officer after the Highway Patrol job..  This shows he went straight from Highway Patrol to Sheriff..
He was also in the military while a Highway Patrolman? You can do that?
Is he 63 years old? If he was 18 when he was a police officer in Springfield he would be 63 now..

If you have any doubts about the existence of evolution, take a look at this picture and try denying it now..
