    You know, there is one common denominator in all religions. It is not the religion that is corrupt; it is the humans that corrupt the religion. They twist what is good into something that encourages murder. Mankind is not very nice when it comes to money, land, etc. Men, over the ages, have used whatever means, be it war, religion, deception, murder; to take what they want. Land, gold, women, slaves, etc. Yes, there are some women who have done it too, but far and away, more war, murder, theft, rape, has been committed by men, in the name of country, God/religion, or plain old greed. (And don’t spout Old Testament at me, that was forsaken for the New Testament, try reading that for more current information.) To my knowledge, Islam IS the only method of governing it is NOT a religion that encourages killing of “infidels”, stones rape victims to death and promotes honor killings without trial or investigation. Islam, radical Islam is a scourge on this earth.

    It is the religion of Greed and Power (control) that is driving most violence/wars. Islam is NOT a religion, it is a system of government.

    How is it not sexist and what makes it okay to have a “Guy Code”? Would you keep the closure a secret from your son? And what justifies a guy code when it is wrong to assume women should be shielded from business decisions that affect their livelihood? Great way to prepare someone for the fact that their passion, or for some just a job, is about to end, leaving them at loose ends. That makes a whole lot of sense in today’s world, where women make up the greater part of the workforce. Its called “survival mode” and a great many women operate at this level everyday, because for many, they themselves ARE the only source of income and support they can count on. Shutting out the very people these kinds of decisions affect is a great way to end a marriage and a family relationship, not to mention partner- and friendships.

    If all you “husbands” who think your comments and attitudes are all right, then, when your wives give just what you like, the silent treatment, why does that bother you? If I treat my hubby the same way, with no answer or monosyllabic answers, he gets defensive and accuses me of being angry. In all actuality, I get tired of all the “favors” he asks of me, when I get nothing in return. Isn’t it supposed to be give and take? Isn’t it supposed to be a partnership? What, really, does a woman get out of marriage? And don’t give me security and income. I already got that covered. Companionship? HA! Please, enlighten me, enlighten all of us poor women, so we don’t make the same mistake twice, or save some poor woman before she signs that license the first time.

    Just wait until they hit their 60s & 70s, and their skin loses its elasticity, the tats will really enhance the saggy skin, and look like a skin disease. Can you imagine the cost to remove a sleeve tattoo???

    Not only that, but if they were the Jurassic Park movie raptors, those bones would be scattered everywhere.

    Let’s talk about the proliferation of the drugs used to “control” mental disease and the horrible side effects they contain. EVERY single one of the mass murderers was on a psychiatric drug.

    “Psychiatrists can’t predict what adverse side effects you might experience because not one of them knows how their drugs work.
    Psychotropic drugs are increasingly being exposed as chemical toxins with the power to kill. Psychiatrists claim their drugs save lives, but according to their own studies, psychotropic drugs can double the risk of suicide. And long-term use has been proven to create a lifetime of physical and mental damage, a fact ignored by psychiatrists.
    Common and well-documented side effects of psychiatric drugs include mania, psychosis, hallucinations, depersonalization, suicidal ideation, heart attack, stroke and sudden death.
    Not only that, but The US Food and Drug Administration admits that probably one to ten percent of all the adverse drug effects are actually reported by patients or physicians.” http://www.cchr.org/quick-facts/psychiatric-drugs-side-effects.html
    “Authors Richard Hughes and Robert Brewin, in their book, The Tranquilizing of America, warned that although psychotropic drugs may appear “to ‘take the edge off’ anxiety, pain, and stress, they also take the edge off life itself…these pills not only numb the pain but numb the whole mind.” In fact, close study reveals that none of them can cure, all have horrific side effects, and due to their addictive and psychotropic (mind-altering) properties, all are capable of ruining a person’s life.
    Consider also the fact that terrorists have used psychotropic drugs to brainwash young men to become suicide bombers. At least 250,000 children worldwide, some as young as seven, are being used for terrorist and revolutionary activities and given amphetamines and tranquilizers to go on “murderous binges” for days. Yet these are the same drugs that psychiatrists are prescribing children for “learning” or “behavioral” problems."
