    Working as a social worker/ counselor for many years I have seen God at work in peoples lives. God does help people to find hope and change their lives. Inspired by all I have experienced in social services over the years. I wrote this book to show that God is there fir you and to provide hope to hurting people in times of crisis. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1467933562?ie=UTF8&force-full-site=1

    At least they're lowering tuition all the other "nonprofit" colleges and universitys just raise theirs and turn double digit profits every year.

    I get a kick out of captainamerica hating on all the Canadians on this board. I would think he'd feel right at home in our country with our nimrod fundamentalist Steven Harper at the helm. I would trade leadership representatives in a heartbeat. But then again I wouldn't want to inflict our butthead prime minister on my American friends.

      I get a kick out of the fact that Canada is part of America, and captainamerica doesn't seem to realize that.

      We are part of North America, just like Mexico – though our relationship is far more symbiotic.
      Our economies are inextricably linked as we are each other's largest trading partners.
      TruthPrevails, AtheistSteve and I should form a Coalition of Concerned Canadian Partners – though the acronym CCCP may meet with some resistance in the States....

      Stephen Harper has a lot in common with that fictional American character called Satan, but unfortunately Harper is real.

      I'm married to a Canadian, so I can assist with things like:

      Stopping the abuse of sled dogs you all use for transportation.
      Teaching you that the word "cheque" is "check" here in America.
      Teaching you the letter is pronounced "zee" not "zed"
      Teaching you that the word is "abOUT" not "Aboot"
      And other such stuff so you guys fit in. 🙂

      Just kidding. Canada's awesome. I just had to rib ya'll about it. 🙂

      "Your own kind"? Cappie, there IS no one of "your own kind", so Damian's one up on ya.

      Ah, Tom Tom, your humor amuses me routinely.

      I especially liked, "If you were any dumber, we'd have to water you."

      Well played, sir.

      Well, thanks, DK! (Actually, I'm a "ma'am", rather than a "sir", but no matter-I appreciate the compliment.)

      Full disclosure: I stole the "we'd have to water you" from some poster on another blog.

      Definition of a Canadian? NOT American! Why does every non-American understand this joke without any explanation required?

      When I moved to Germany, the first phrase I learned in the language was "I am not an American, I am Canadian".
      The second was "one dark beer, please".
      Sled dogs are so twentieth century. We all snowmobile to work these days.
      Has you spouse managed to inject all the missing "u" and "gh"s back into your spelling? Remember – it's spelled "humour" and "doughnut"...

      The most Canadian phrase of which I can think is "pass me a serviette, eh – I got poutine on the chesterfield".

      As an American I can confidently say that our dear captain is a typical specimen of this "great" country of ours.

      An ignorant, angry fool.
