  1. I know it’s horrible and painful that hundreds of innocent citizens died in that incident. A true Muslim condemns such type of act.

    I think that it was an inside job done by George Bush to make an excuse to invade Muslim oil rich countries.

    Well, besides that, what do you think and feel for thousands of Muslims in Afghanistan who were killed in carpet bombings? Is it appropriate to use this technique to kill one’s target?

    So if your are in the business let me know if I can be realistically hirable. I am 26, male, I can live/move anywhere in America or internationally. I am getting my Associates Degree in English from my local community college. I am 5’11 and I weigh 168 lbs. about. I have job experience working as a Lab Technician, waiter, cruise lines, retail, and I want to make this carrer. I know it doesn’t pay well, but if I am going to be middle class anyway, then I might as well travel and do something different everyday. I tried applying when I was 21, but I wasn’t qualified. Am I now?

    I am US citizen and I hold a clinical lab science degree and I have 50,000 saved up to travel in many countries. I want to live in each country for two years and learn the language and move on to a new country. Is it hard finding jobs? Can I still work at hospitals? What about work visa and buying a used car? How hard is each of those?

    I have a 6 month old Black lab named Saghani Takoda. My dream has always been to have a therapy dog. I have started obviously with the basic training in obediance. What I am looking for now is what kind of specific training will she need other than obidiance in order to fill her roll as a therapy dog! There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a smile that a dog brings to a sick child’s or person’s face! Any ideas for a web site to go to or organization would be greatly appreciated!

    If illegals are dipping into the welfare monies, shouldn’t the people that are legal be feeling the pinch? I don’t see or hear any complaining from the large numbers of people already on wefare in this country!
    Your right bmwr, But why is it that I never see a post on here where someone on welfare is complaining about what they have lost because of the illegals?
