Yes, and unfortunately even idiots have this freedom too...
It's called freedom of speech!
I kind of agree with Jen Allen... I know it's got to be painful and by all means, vent... but divorce the man....
I cannot believe this idiocy gets posted.
Of course it must be the "locals" driving in the left lane, right scantrell? Cuz we all's be ignant, unlike all the geniuses living in whatever town you fled, right? And you wonder why we say "feel free to go the fuck back". You can even use the left lane the whole way out of town.
WELL! GOD BLESS AMERICA!! Where we ALL have religious freedoms, even if you choose NOT to believe.
If you weren't driving the green Lexus, don't sweat it and don't take it personally!
This driver was coming or going to church as do many on Sunday, and his utter disregard for others is a prime example of the hypocrisy displayed by more than enough church goers.
Hypocrisy that is so prevalent on so many fronts in our culture it would seem that reading scripture is for most, little more than mental masturbation and yes rhetoric.
As for confrontation, we were literally cut off in the turn, my riding partner was within a couple if inches of being hit and his attitude was quite simply, "you're wasting my time white boy". His arrogance, his racism, his bad behavior, his hatred.
I didn't even cuss at the guy, I simply asked what he thought he was doing nearly running us over and he didn't give a damn!
He displayed the dangerous behavior, he nearly ran over two people minding their own business and by the way, we were going the posted speed limit of 20 mph which based on his driving, didn't seem an issue that not only was he recklessly endangering human life, he was breaking the law.
Furthermore, I have read scripture, was raised in a church going family and in over half a century on this planet the one thing I see religion doing over and over and over is giving safe haven for pricks to justify their pathetically bad behavior because, they're saved!
My question is this, who is going to save the rest of us from these "saved" nuts who use Jesus' blessing as justification for any and all bad behavior?
If they would just be honest, be the jerks that they are and not try and hide behind scripture, I could at least give them credit for being honest. They live in a quagmire of denial and obnoxious behavior and all the while trying to hide the stench of who they really are with evermore applications of religious perfume.
Unfortunately, the rest of us have to deal with the damage they leave behind. Need proof? Look at world history. It speaks volumes on the devastation and discord your wonderful scriptures teachings have left in their wake.
I read and study the Scriptures daily, i do not pat myself on the back for doing so, nor am I self-righteous or arrogant for doing so. The letter writer seems to think it is a mindless pursuit to go to church and worship Jesus Christ and that God's Word (The Holy Bible)is religious rhetoric.
Maybe the writer needs to read some of the scriptures on how to talk about those who they are at odds with . Using that kind of language is not helping to releive the hate that society uses to express their displeasure of others.
Most states (including South Carolina) do have some sort of varying laws about slower traffic keeping right to allow faster traffic to pass on the left. So all of you "locals" that feel it is everyone else who are bad drivers, take a look in the mirror. If there are cars behind you have some courtesy and move to the right, like the laws says.
Simply put..... IF I AM PASSING YOU ON THE RIGHT, "YOU" ARE IN THE WRONG LANE.......
JBOAT...THAT is damn funny!
You should take a course in elementary English. I think Trident Tech has some 100-Level courses that will teach you the basics of sentence structure, grammar and punctuation.
Then, maybe you could take a course in World Politics or something and compare governments on a much larger scale than your small, Fox News-riddled-brain will allow.
Notice my use of punctuation and the absence of annoying run-on sentences.
Good luck to you, my friend. While I'm no fan of the Tea Party, I'm also no fan of the Democratic Party. Think for yourself, you mindless sheep.
You chose to move here. All yall chose to move here. there are VERY FEW LOCALS here anymore. The one that are here avoid the bad roads. So it's YOU that is the bad driver not everyone else!!!
100% of all divorces start with marriage!
I grew up in Denver and didn't appreciate the mountains until I left. I need to get downtown more often. Thanks for the reminder.
Monogamy causes a lot of problems....
It's good to vent - now maybe you can move on and start looking at the positives in your marriage. Forget the past, the anger and the hatred. Just look forward and make yourselves happy.
Counseling should help, but I also agree that a bit of internet venting can help to get the pent-up rage out. It is difficult to forgive an unrepentant interloper but you don't want to burden yourself with a grudge forever.
Also, this is maybe the first legitimate "hate" column I've seen on here.
haha, that jesus shit just puts this over the top on the rediculous scale
Still Hurting- I can only recommend the Perfect Man to you. He lived as an example and died that we may have forgiveness, for ourselves and for others. The hate you are harboring effects those in your life, in spite of your best efforts to conceal it. Jesus offers a peace that passes all understanding. He came that we may have life abundantly. Softly and tenderly, Jesus is calling. Let you answer be yes.
