creative51 comments on Apr 7, 2019:
Words have meanings. Different people assign meanings to words. Some words, their meanings are more or less widely agreed upon. Some words lend themselves to multiple meanings. Religion and spirituality are words with multiple meanings to different people. So the answer to your question will vary greatly based on the meanings that any particular person gives to these words. You have quoted some definitions of these words, but that does not mean, that I as the read accept these definitions. So my answer may contain a different chain of thought which is meaningful to me, but in conflict with the definitions of these words which you are using.

It is true much of the western world is insensitive to what is happening in the third (non-white) world. Yet this article is from 2015, so why comparing it to an event which happened now? Also I do believe that there was international condemnation of this event at that time. People of all religions do some pretty terrible things to other religions. Ever read much about the Crusades? Not a very nice event and it went on for several hundred years.

Bring back memories of protesting the Vietnam War?
creative51 comments on Apr 6, 2019:
I was deeply involved in the anti war movement. I was never arrested but was tear gassed several times and was once chased by an out of control cop who wanted to beat me with his riot stick. I was able to out run him. The Michigan State Police had a "Red" file on me as I was considered an enemy of the state at that time. Due to an ACLU class action lawsuit, I was given a copy of my file in 1981.

creative51 comments on Apr 6, 2019:
If the number of people gathering is around 16 or less, I will offer my house in Paw Paw. I have the room to have a group of that size. I have a yard to move around in and if it rains we can get everyone inside. We can get deli food and fresh fruit / veggies from the local store about 7 minutes. from my house. There is an inland lake across the street as well. It is not really set up for swimming, but a lot of fishing goes on in it. I have rights to a deeded access people could fish from. If the group is much bigger than that, then it would be a tad bit crowded. Also if people wish to meet in another part of the state, well I would attend that as also.

Ray Charles. - You Dont Know Me. [youtu.be]
creative51 comments on Apr 6, 2019:
Ray was talented in very broad way. One of the very first bands he played in as a teenager was a country band down in Florida. Ray invented mid-20th century soul music, but in interviews when asked he would say he also liked and enjoyed country music.When he put out this country album in 1962, he was told not to make this record, that it would flop. But it was a hit. Everyone but Ray was surprised that it sold so well. Ray knew it would.

Growing up in the 1950's-1960's in a factory town just outside of Detroit, Motown music was every where. By the mid 1960's Motown would release their songs on local radio stations one to two weeks prior to releasing them nationally. We in SE Michigan were in effect Motown's test market.

There are likely some areas more suited for a large grow operation then other areas. I really doubt the crazed meth head has any thing to do with a grow operation. Crazed meth heads can be any where.

creative51 comments on Feb 18, 2019:
Freedom of speech means you have to listen to ideas which you may not agree. As long as someone is not threatening the physical safety of others, spreading libelous - slanderous comments or hate speech, they have freedom to say what they want to. He is expressing an opinion of the type of social interaction he perceives on the site. If you disagree, you should have responded to his comment expressing this disagreement. Not allowing the expression of diverse opinion defeats the underlying reason for a site like this to exist. I have had a number of interactions with this commenter. Some we have very much disagreed with each other and some we have been in agreement. Disagreeing with one comment a person makes, does not necessarily mean you will disagree with all of their comments. Yet I sense that for many on this site, one disagreement means that you will always disagree with that person. Not an open minded approach for people on a site which came in to existence to offer a platform for those whose views are not in wide acceptance in the larger society.

No. Some things can be forgiven, some circumstances deserve a second chance. Association with ISIS deserves none of these. In fact, she should be put to death and any children be put up for adoption. ISIS has no redeeming aspects and should be given no quarter what so ever. If one is so stupid as to follow ISIS, they are too stupid to be part of my world. I know if I were to encounter ISIS soldiers, they would kill me in a split second. I offer the same to them. ISIS exhibits the absolute worst traits of humans. She has chosen to be with them. Let her die. All people who are associated with ISIS should be put to death. No prison for them. They are undeserving for anything but death.

creative51 comments on Feb 17, 2019:
Back in christimas 1960, I got a transistor radio from my parents similar to the photo I posted. My father said to me that he would take it away from me if he caught me listening to it at night when I should be sleeping. Wow, it had never occurred to me to listen to it at night when I should be sleeping! So later that night, when I was supposed to be sleeping, I put the small earphone in it, pulled up the covers and started turning the dial. I came across a Red Wings Hockey game. I kept listening to it. The announcer said, Howe scores again and now has a hat Trick! (which is scoring three goals in one game). Listened some more to various stations. My Dad never did catch me listening to it. I could always here him walking down the hall and would turn it off before he got to my room. In 1963, my Dad took me to a father - son banquet in town. The featured speaker that night was Gordie Howe. He told us stories about his hockey career (his was still playing) and offered tips to us kids on skating and playing hockey. Quite the night. Of course I did not mention to my father that I had heard on the radio when Gordie scored a hat trick a couple of years before.
9/17/61 - Detroit Tiger Pitching Ace Jim Bunning strikes out Roger Maris of the New York Yankees in ...
creative51 comments on Feb 17, 2019:
The day before, on Sept 16,1961. My mom took my older brother and I to Tiger Stadium. We saw Frank Lary (aka the Yankee Killer), pitch a complete game win 10-4 over the Yankees. Norm Cash and Dick Brown had homers for Detroit and Al Kaline went 4 for 4. Roger Maris hit his 57th HR of the year off the third deck facing in the third inning. When it bounced back in to the field, Al Kaline retrieved it and tossed it to the Yankee dugout for Roger to have. Somewhere around my house, I have the scorecard of that game which my older brother had kept using all the correct official score keeping notation. I will have to post that someday when I dig it up and find it. The game you posted a photo of above, the Yankees won 6-4 over the Tigers, Bunning pitched 8 innings, it went in to extra innings and Roger Maris hit his 58th HR with one man on, to win the game for the Yankees in the 12th inning. Terry Fox, was the losing pitcher for Detroit. Of all the great Tiger teams, the 1961 Tigers were my favorite. They won 101 games and finished in second place behind the Yankees who won 109 games.
