      The Compassion Forum or whatever it is called is a show on CNN.

    LOL

    It was some TV debate. CP even wrote a hub about it:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Thecompassionforum

    "On Sunday night Messiah College hosted The Compassion Forum for the presidential candidates. While all the candidates were invited only Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama accepted their invitations. As the name, and the name of the host, suggests the forum dealt with faith driven issues from human rights to global warming to abortion."

    LOL

    Glad I missed it. Nothing worse than an evangelical conservative trying to be compassionate.

    My pleasure CP, - that should start a few arguments. big_smile

      The Messiah College???  OMG!

      Humans have no rights, global warming is a myth, and abortion is an abomination of God will even though miscariages are because the babies were bad to begin with. 

      LOL.  Hello I am a representitive from the Messiah College, and I can attest to the truth, that no man was created equal, God doesn't play favorites unless you eat a dead man and worship him as God.  You must disobey the 10 commandments and have faith that we will be saved for our inability to establish what the truth really  is because God put us here 6 thousand years ago and anyone who comes to knowledge about Jesus and does not eat his flesh will be condemed to Hell, because we are the holy messiahs of the world telling you the truth. 

      puke...

      Glad I missed it too.

        Actually, though I missed the compassion forum on CNN, I did just listen to the YouTube cuts on CP's hub, I though from what I watched, that the middle ground, which is my favorite answer to most "problems", came out in the Q&A with each democratic candidate. Only Hillary and Barack attended the forum, no other candidate did. A bipartisan audience in attendance got to ask those two some personal questions on abortion, war, euthanasia, personal faith and decision making in office of the president, etc...and it was great to hear how focused they were on making decisions that were middle ground based.
        If they can maintain that if elected to office, I won't loose total hope for US security, morals and ethics.
        I believe if I keep a vision, others will tune in to it, as I have from others, and it will proliferate. Prayer in action...positive consciousness is a must. People can change.

          History teaches us otherwise SJ. We haven't changed in thousands of years, and I think you are wasting your time externally. Internally, I can't argue. How you choose to see things is up to you, but realistically this is not going to work. Maybe people do change, but governments, churches and other such power hungry organizations do not. What did the US learn from Korea? Nothing. They went to Vietnam. Now Iraq. Next Iran. Mark my words.

          You must believe what you must, but you must also be realistic. Five million people took to the streets of London before we invaded Iraq to protest the plan. What happened? Who knows how many dead innocent Iraqi civilians. Praying will not change a thing, other than to make you feel as though you are doing something. 

          And no, I am not being negative. I wish for things to change all day every day. Will my wishing it make it happen. Not a hope in hell.

      That would be it. Time to spend a little time off line.

      I went to the Top Marques show in Monaco this weekend though.

      Spent the afternoon looking at cars I will never be able to afford.

        You never know Mark.

        If TS becomes a millionaire posting on Hubpages, they might as well buy you one of those just as a gratitude for your time spent showing them the ropes big_smile

    Damn right. I want the Lamborghini then big_smile

    You ever been to that show?

  8. Misha profile image76
    Mishaposted 9 years ago

    Nope. And never been to Monaco, too. I would love to tour Europe for a year or two, but I need to solve the income stream problem and to convince my wife to quit her daily job - the later seems to be more difficult big_smile

    It's very different to the US.

    This show is a good example of the crap though. The cheapest car there was a very boring Lexus. Most of the other cars were handmade German and Italian sports cars and insanely expensive saloons like this:

      Though I don't really care about cars, if I had to pick a car, which some would probabaly call crap, I would chose 64 futura, falcon, red, convertable short body, boxed front, white wheels and tan interior.   oohh la la.

    That's a nasty site - it resizes the window to full screen. Having a special setup with monitors, I don't like sites that mess up with windows size hmm

    And I always maintained that Mercedes is Toyota for rich guys, so Maybach should be a Toyota for super rich - still Corolla, though wink

    LOl

    Having owned a variety of cars, a good Mercedes (and there are plenty of bad ones) beats a good Toyota any day. These things are insanely expensive though.
