    I need everyone's help and imput on making one decision to change my life in the most positive way.



    1). Quit drinking Diet Pepsi for good.

    2). Quit worrying about things I can't change.

    3). Quit reading and posting on GT's Religious Issues.

    I think you should go with number 1 and quit drinking Diet Pepsi Tilley.

    1). Couldn't hurt, even diet soda is crap.

    2). Another good idea, stress sucks the life out of you/personal experience/.

    3). Thats up to you to decide, no ones opinion here should matter in the least.

    1) Soft drinks are not good for you. It can never hurt by giving them up. I haven't had one since my Freshman year in college('96), and I don't miss them one bit.

    2) My boss always says, worry about what you can control, and don't stress out about the rest.

    3) Now why would you go and do something crazy like that?

    I'd go with number two. But most things in life take a back seat to a nice number two.

    God has already decided your future. nothing you can do will change that, and if you did, God knew that before hand too.

    just live your life as a good person.

    If you have to pick only one, then make it to quit the Diet Pepsi.

    1). A doctor told me that drinking diet soda of any kind is the same as drinking diluted rat poison. It's known to contribute to irregular heartbeat, erosion of tooth enamel, kidney and bladder problems and even some forms of cancer.

    2). A little worry is a sign of an engaged mind. Only idiots go through life without a care in the world.

    3). Jerking the chains of the so-called atheists on this forum is one of life's little pleasures.

    I stole this from another thread because it took the words right out of my mouth:


    I have gone almost a week without caffeine and it has been a long week.

    I still worry about things I can't change.

    I guess I get frustrated with how I see the world now, and when I look at this forum, I see the same nonsense here.

    I see a leader who had no qualifications lead this country to the brink of all-out socialism.

    I see a group of people demand acceptance, and if you don't accept them then you are a bigoted hateful person.

    I see a lack of respect for human life. The murder of an unborn child is never ever acceptable or justified.

    I see genocide happening everyday, and we do nothing to stop it.

    Children dying of hunger and disease by the thousands everyday, yet Joel Olsteen paid over 100 million dollars for a stadium so people can come and see him and hear his opinions about life and God, and how we should help him pay for his 100 million dollar stadium instead of sending money to help the thousands of children dying of hunger and disease.

    A dip**** with orange hair goes into a show and kills and injures many at the new Batman movie.

    I am tired of the pseudo-intellectuals, gay is the new racers, anti-christians, "pay for my condoms" or "pay for my abortion" Georgetown coeds, picket Chick-o-Fil idiots!

    Enough people. Grow the hell up and be responsible for yourselves and your kids. Take an interest in others (besides yourself). Keep your sexuality private. If you don't believe in God, then go off and live your life as you will and don't berate someone who does.

    Stand up for those who can't. Respect authority. We as a people wrote societal rules and laws. If you don't like it, then start a campaign to change them. If you find out only a few agree with you, deal with it...or move to France.

    When Andy Griffith died, did Mayberry die as well?








    anyone got a diet pepsi they can spare?

    Then just leave them alone to marry as they please and I'm sure they will leave you alone as well.

    Use a definition for life that does not depend on your religion and I will agree with you whole heartedly.

    I do agree with this. I feel we have a duty to intervene on behalf of those that can not defend themselves. So, you are in favor of intervening in Syria, correct?

    Very much agreed, I can't stand that SOB.

    Crazies aren't new, what's new is crazies getting national headlines.

    Ok, you're losing me here... :dunno:

    Or... If you believe in god then go off and live your life as you think he wants you too and and stop berating others that don't.

    Yes.

    Only if it is worthy of respect.

    Make up your mind, is it ok for gays to campaign to change the marriage laws or not?

    Mayberry is (and always was) an illusion. It never existed.

    You should definitely go with #2. Enjoy your Pepsi and chill out dude.

    A woman is having sex.

    The sex is not with either you (I assume you are a male) or me.

    Is whether or not she is using contraception any business of yours or mine?

    If she conceives a child, is it any business of yours or mine?

    If she chooses to abort the child, what is your authority to prevent her from doing so?

    I only see my being involved if she insists on using my tax dollars for either her contraception or her abortion as the case may be, as I do not want my tax money used for either.

    But if she pays for them herself, it is none of my business.

    And they are not any of your business either.

    You can condemn her choices all you want.

    But they remain her choices. :upeyes:

    If God wants to punish her for her choices, that is up to God.

    But it is not up to me. And it is not up to you either.

    Mayberry never existed, neighbor. Anyhow, sounds like you should go with 2 . . . you can't control any of those things worrying you. Things change, not always for the better, but not always for the worse either.

    Maybe you should have added 4: Stop watching/reading the news.

    Oh the sweet, sweet "pseudo-intellectual" irony.

    I'm doing all three above: you don't know my sexuality, since most gays wouldn't come near a place like this I'm standing up for them and I'm taking an interest in others, in response to this comment, I'm taking an interest in gay rights.

    It's obvious you are straight: have you ever walked with your significant other hand-in-hand in public and had foul things said to you from complete strangers? I doubt it.

    Have you ever kissed your significant other in public? I bet you have.

    If you're married to somebody you love with all your heart, will they get your benefits if you die? I bet they will.

    Why are you so offended that gays want equal rights? They are doing what you said... Starting a campaign.

    All I have to say to you is Waaah, Waaaah, Waaah... If you can't handle life, and it's just too tough for you, I assume you have options to make it all go away and save us your whining, this is a gun forum after all.

    Take your own medicine already, and "Grow the hell up" and "take an interest in others (besides yourself)".

    As a matter of fact I have. And that is while I was a young many with open carry. A couple of guys came along and declared what they would like to do to me and my girlfriend. Stupid people. Not the best thing to do to a guy strapped with a .357 magnum.

    As a matter of fact I have. For some 13 years of marriage now.

    A responsible father wouldn't have it any other way.

    You are really putting the "Petty" in Petty Officer with that one.

    Really? From a guy that just told another man to commit suicide? What interest are you taking in Tilley on this one? You demand that an small statistically anomally of the population be elevated above everyone else, yet you tell another man to kill himself? I suggest you take a breath and then take your own advice on the issue of tolerance on differences.

    I think the majority of the population is tired of being bullied by the vocal miniscule minority that throw glitter bombs and attack business owners for having a different opinion.

    If you want to be taken more seriously perhaps you should try a little more Martin Luther King and little less Malcom X?:dunno:

    A) I never said they should be above, only to have the exact same rights you and I enjoy.
    B) if you can't take the heat stay out of the kitchen... That post was so full of whining, I did not say they should kill themselves, only that they have the option.

    Yeah, the chic fil a thing was annoying, from both sides. However, who's being bullied? Those who are treated as second class citizens and are standing up for their rights (like women during the suffrage movement or blacks during civil rights) or the vocal minority that accosts them and slurs insults and curses and expects them to sit at the back of the bus and shut up (just as they did at women during suffrage and at blacks during civil rights)?

    My head just exploded.. And that's not a compliment regarding the level of intelligence in your retort.

    You're a homosexual.

    Who a whining little girl now?

    Equal to what, heterosexuals? There is nothing normal or natural about homosexuality. And because a practicing gay is sinful, that is why they turn from God. They are in a state of sin as everyone else is, except gays want it to sanctioned the same way sex between a husband and wife is. It's not and it will never be.

    Spoken like a true unrepentant sinner. I'm a gentleman...so lady's first...:wavey:
