    I guess what always mystifies me is why so many of the anti-TK moralists are so dad-gummed foamin' at the mouth hysterical about their hatred

    Some greedy investor thought that 18% return sounded pretty good; they thought they would make a killing and the only villain is the seller?

    There are about three gajillion other people that have done worse, but we get some perverse "holier-than-thou" attitude that always seems to be directly proportional to how much more successful than we.

    Why does anyone give a rip what happens to TK or his art (or Martha Stewart or LaMarche or Craig Ponzio or Krispy Kreme)unless you personally were affected by a decision that was made by you

    We carried his stuff during the boom, made some money, didn't care much for his requirements and policies (and I would add Somerset and Greenwich and P. Buckley Moss and so many more), saw the decline and like Maryanne-got out

    We're all adults-we ought to act like it

    PS to Maryanne-Are you just leaving or just returning form your trip to Greece? Yasu!

    My husband won't wear Levi's because they moved the "made in the USA" factory to India, or somewhere not USA. 'That why, Betty?

    Oh yeah, thanks for calling me the "voice of reason" once again [​IMG] But, I think I am only the voice of reason if you agree with what I say...otherwise I am just another wild eyed radical. :eek:

    Have to remember that we are ALL just people... no matter what size, shape, color, affiliation, or preference.

    Treat people as you wish to be treated and good things will come around - usually in more abundence. It's not our job to judge.

    First: sit down some day with the LL BEan catalogue and count the number of items made n the US. You'll find ONE: their original boots. Everything else in that catalogue--imported. So for you that rfuse to buy from Levis, check the labels of everything else available in any store.

    You'll be naked in no time.

    I LOVE Disney for their stance on partner benefits. About time someone had the guts to offer such benefits to people of all orientations.

    Came across this fabulous quote from one of my fave authors, Bishop John Spong:

    "The Christianity I profess is radically inclusive. Ther are no barriers, no boundaries. It is a journey into the mystery of God without a road map"

    You do have him mixed up with other preachers who have fallen. He's a good guy who takes alot of critisium for standing up for what he beleives.
    Mainly because it goes against what others view as tolerence and exceptance.
    He doesn't do anything mean he just says outloud things that aren't very popular with the world in general.

    He actually has a great message just like Billy Graham, he just goes a little further and speaks out on issues. Billy Graham does not. I think God called both men to different ministries, Same message. The Gospel.

    Hope this clears it up.

    Thanks, for clearing things up, I guess my memory got rusty on this.

    I would say that if Bishop John Spong's profession is Christian, he would also have to say that Christ's wasn't! Christ's book (The Bible) divides the truth from the lie, sin from good, etc etc, it defines boundaries throughout!

    But... back to framing!

    Paul, to refresh your memory.............

    Our buddy Jerry Falwell.......

    “Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them.

    “I had a student ask me, "Could the savior you believe in save Osama bin Laden?" Of course, we know the blood of Jesus Christ can save him, and then he must be executed”

    "If you are not a born again Christian you have failed as a human being"

    “Billy Graham is the chief servant of Satan in America”

    “It appears that America's anti-Biblical feminist movement is at last dying, thank God, and is possibly being replaced by a Christ-centered men's movement which may become the foundation for a desperately needed national spiritual awakening”

    “The ACLU is to Christians what the American Nazi party is to Jews

    "homosexuals are brute beasts...part of a vile and satanic system [that] will be utterly annihilated, and there will be a celebration in heaven. "

    "AIDS is not just God's punishment for homosexuals; it is God's punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals."

    Now Emibub, give old Jerry a break. I'm sure all those quotes were taken out of context and he meant something entirely different.

    You just have to ask yourself how Christian someone like Jerry, Pat Robertson or Fred Phelps is when they rail on with hatred for hours against someone, yet never mention the love of God. Seriously, listen to them sometime and compare how much of their message of negative compared with any positive message.
