Mike M. replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"For some future event, you should try bringing him a bottle of Zacapa rum.  I don't ordinarily want to sip rum straight, but I like sipping that one."

Mike M. replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"Car bombs are delicious... But it's a rare occasion when I'm looking to chug anything, and on those occasions, I'd probably prefer it not be too heavy."

Mike M. replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"One of my regular drinks involves mixing Guinness.  You basically mix Guinness with a black russian and then add a splash of Coke. "

Mike M. replied to Ivan S's discussion Traits in young men people look up to
"To me, the situation is also relevant.  Part of what you (should) learn as you grow up, which, it seems to me, is decreasingly appreciated in our culture these days, is that different situations have different standards of behavior. When I get…"

Mike M. replied to Will's discussion Millenials and the Church in the group Christian Men
"I think that there's some truth to the essay, but I think that overthinking ways to reform that aspect of things can exacerbate that very problem.  Trying to contrive artificial ways to get people to bond is exactly the kind of thing that…"

Mike M. replied to Will's discussion Millenials and the Church in the group Christian Men
"I see the change as less an elevation of political issues and more a lowering of traditional religious ones.  If you look back to "the old days" when churches, to a large extent, were the communities in which people lived, communities…"

Mike M. replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)
"I have a handgun and a concealed carry permit.  I don't ordinarily carry a gun.  I've never been in a situation where I would have used it if I had had it, and the odds of such a situation arising are, for me, usually…"

Mike M. replied to Todd Behrend's discussion How do you use diplomacy in telling a good friend he's with the wrong girl?
"I'm in more or less the same situation with a friend.  My approach was to tell him exactly what I thought, once.  That time, while being as polite as possible, I bluntly told him exactly what I thought.  And I'm not going to…"

Mike M. replied to Dakota's discussion This might be a different one...
"It's hard for people to grasp that marriage ages, child bearing patterns, etc., have been in constant flux.  People think that we wait a long time to get married now... Who knows what they would think if they were dropped into England in…"

Mike M. replied to Douglas Aldrich's discussion Help keeping a relationship strong -- But hey, at least it's not a woman this time!
"You might be looking for a deeper response than this, but do you have a car?  If so, offer to give him rides places, even if it's just to hand out with his friends.  On the way home, ask him if he wants to get ice cream, or a…"

Mike M. replied to Steve Fine's discussion Affordable Care and Being a Christian in the group Christian Men
"I wouldn't count this as any sort of mandatory Christian belief, but I believe that the state should be a small and limited part of a more robust society.  I think that those Christians who are on my side in this need to reassert our…"

Mike M. replied to Neil Griffin's discussion Tattoos in the group Catholic Men
"I don't, personally, think that tattoos are a good idea, but I don't buy that anything in Scripture actually prohibits tattoos, and even if Leviticus did, that wouldn't be binding on Christians."
Oct 4, 2013
Mike M. replied to Paul_of_TX's discussion Christie??? in the group Republican Men
"I like Christie as governor of New Jersey.  I'd probably like him as governor of my state, too.  But, I don't think that he's the savior of the GOP.  Christie's not as conservative as I am, but he's in…"

Vytautas replied to Mike M.'s discussion He is risen! in the group Catholic Men
"Χρίστος Ανέστη!"

Mike M. replied to William James's discussion The Legalisation of Gay Marriage in the group The Great Debate
"I see the push for gay marriage as part of a broader push to mandate stupidity.  No one actually thinks that the union of a man and a woman and the union of two people of the same sex are the same.  They don't function the same way,…"

Nathan DeParis replied to Mike M.'s discussion He is risen! in the group Catholic Men
"A very happy Easter to you as well Mike M. It's like the world series, the Superbowl, memorial day , independence day all wrapped into one day. The greatest day."

"If you pay taxes, it's neither Right or wrong to not pay the full amount. The debt is written off on the company's taxes as a full deduction, so they already got their money, then they sell the debt to a collection agency for pennies on…"
