"JD. It's really a non-issue and I should not have brought it up. If you like the goatee, or if you like facial hair, grow it. You don't need to come up with an excuse such as vision. Just do it because you like it. If others have an issue…"

Mongoose commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"JD, yea, I didn't mean to imply you were blind. I was just giving the hyper-version of low vision. I presumed you were just VI, not Blind. I do know some dudes who are blind who shave their heads rather than grow worried over if their hair is…"

J. D. commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"First off, I am not totally blind.  I am a low-parcial, which means I have some usable vision.  Second, I only had my goatee all those years ago for a few weeks, and what trimming there was during that time was not hard for me to do on my…"

Mongoose commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"Note:  most men who are completely blind shave daily rather than attempt a beard. As a professional in the field, I will say that it was quite a surprise when we had a keynote speaker, who was totally blind, who sported a beard. When I inquired…"

Mongoose commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"As said, I am sorry the people in your life are so hung up on culture rather than doctrine. I can assure you that many leaders here have beards and no one says a word. JD, I find it interesting that you claim you grew a goatee due to vision loss.…"

J. D. commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"John Z:  I agree with you 100% about the whole beard thing within the church.  I don't know why it is such a big deal.  Some years ago, I decided to try growing a goatee, largely because, as someone with a significant vision…"

Geordn commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"Beards are fine if they are well kept and maintained, trimmed etc.  I think people should commit to either or, commit to the beard or facial hair look or commit to shaving daily and keep it off the face.  I think the culture extends from…"

Tyler Jacobs commented on Robert Disque's group LDS Men
"The beard thing is a huge thing that dismays me about LDS CULTURE (not doctrine!!). I think it's a byproduct from the baby-boomer generation when facial hair was viewed as "counter culture". I know it sounds bad, but I'm kinda…"

I am an Evil Bastard!

Conservatives have been demonized by the media. The demeaning pejorative “Tea Baggers” was used to characterize the Tea Party protestors. If you don’t agree with the liberal politicians’ health care proposals, you’re “cold hearted” and “cruel”. If you disagree with Obama’s policies and political stances, you’re labeled a racist. There are radical extremists in the White House such as:

ART AND THE WARRIOR

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 10:00pm 2 Comments

Symbols of power and spirituality have always been important to warriors. From the beginning of time warriors have sought power. Symbols are/were used to internalize spiritual beliefs to harness or summon power. Some believe(d) that symbols summon spiritual beings be they gods, demons, spirit guides, ancestral spirits, or the power of nature. Those symbols were the sources of power and works of ancient and modern art.

I have a friend that just earned a DMA in Theatrical Music. She’s very attractive and we’ve dated off and on for a few years. We went out for dinner then dancing. On the way home I asked her out to dinner for next Wednesday. She declined and said she was going to the musical Wicked. I told her I was jealous, I’ve wanted to see wicked but can’t afford the time or money to travel to see it. She looked at me like aliens had taken over my body. Then she called me a liar! She accused me of having… Continue

Hello there! I noticed on one of your previous thread posts that you carry a gun with you either concealed or unconcealed. I thought you might be interested in joining my new group called the Concealed Carry Club. Here is a link to the club:

I would like to say that students today simply aren't as disciplined as people used to be. However, I tried taekwondo three times in years gone by and never got past the first month or so on any of the attemps---the first in college at age 20, the next about 5 years later, and again in my late 30s. Finally, at age 44 I tried one more time and stuck with it, earning my first-dan black belt four years later. Now, going on 53, I'm in the best shape of my life and run my own school. So I learned discipline a little late.
