Is there such a thing as luck?

This is an interesting question and I also studied and discovered the answer of this question earlier. But thank you for asking this question again so that I can make it in the form an answer so that many can read and understand it. I do believe that my answer for this question is very interesting. Understanding and accepting the answer of this question will surely help all readers to remove a great misbelieve. So read on with the heart to know its answer.

All human beings are familiar with the term called luck. People of different religion, caste, tribe, belief, ethnicity and country believe in the term called luck. But according to me, Luck is something that does not exist for real or it is a word used by human being to replace the presence of something else, which they do not understand. Beyond that if we study and understand more about luck, we can see and realize that luck is a non-beneficial thing for human being which affects human beings only in bad ways. I know it is difficult to grasp and to accept my opinion in this moment, but I’ll make it clear for you.

I stole this, not about me, but I wish it were....HA

My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts (Obama bumper stickers, gung-ho socialized medicine, "guns should be banned", etc.). So last week I put this sign up in my yard after one of his anti-gun rants at a neighborhood cocktail party.

The sign wasn't up more than an hour before he called the police and wanted them to make me take down the sign. Fortunately, the officer politely informed him that it was not their job to take such action without a court order and that he had to file a complaint "downtown" first, which would be reviewed by the city attorney to see if it violated any city, county, or state ordinances, which if there was a violation a court order would be sent to the offending party (me) to "remove the sign in seven days".

After several weeks he was informed that the sign was legal (by a quarter of an inch) and there was nothing the city could do, which obviously made him madder. I tried to smooth things over by inviting him to go shooting with me and my friends at the hunt club but that seemed to make him even more angry. I then asked him if he wanted to go to a Tea Party rally but again he declined my outreach efforts to bring about a better understanding between political and social opponents.

I am at a loss how to reconcile our long relationship (notice I did not say friendship), any suggestions would be welcome.

Anyway, that's life in our neck of the woods, how's about yours?

Why I am ZERO fan of Political Correctness

The Cardinal for the City of Chicago HONORS the crackpot Louie Farrakhan. Whats up with that.

I guess there's no telling.

At the heart of the controversy over the radical Fr. Michael Pfleger’s selection for a “racial justice” honor by the Chicago Catholic archdiocese was the white Pfleger surrounding himself with a black mob and threatening a legally constituted white shopkeeper with hate language and death (“we’ll snuff you out! Come out or we’ll drag you out like the rat you are!”)…but even more significant, the priest’s determinedly close support of Minister Louis Farrakhan who has taunted Jews, lauded Hitler and swims up to his neck in anti-Semitism—while a Catholic priest applauds…uncritical.

But all this we know. My question now is this:

Why have the Jews been so silent in all this…while conservative Catholics and evangelical Protestants have been so aghast at the black preacher’s hated of Jews and Pfleger’s patronizing of him? . Why haven’t Jews been outraged at the white preacher’s evident tolerance of it—and at the Archdiocese for rewarding him?. Moreover, why aren’t the so-called “mainstream media” aroused by this evident transference of a bigot’s number one fan to the role of defender of social and racial justice?

Cows absolved of causing global warming with nitrous oxide

Livestock could actually be good for the environment according to a new study that found grazing cows or sheep can cut emissions of a powerful greenhouse gas.

In the past environmentalists, from Lord Stern to Sir Paul McCartney, have urged people to stop eating meat because the methane produced by cattle causes global warming.

However a new study found that cattle grazed on the grasslands of China actually reduce another greenhouse gas, nitrous oxide.

Worst Kind of Racism....

They've been called Oreos, traitors and Uncle Toms, and are used to having to defend their values. Now black conservatives are really taking heat for their involvement in the mostly white tea party movement—and for having the audacity to oppose the policies of the nation's first black president.

"I've been told I hate myself. I've been called an Uncle Tom. I've been told I'm a spook at the door," said Timothy F. Johnson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, a group of black conservatives who support free market principles and limited government.

"Black Republicans find themselves always having to prove who they are. Because the assumption is the Republican Party is for whites and the Democratic Party is for blacks," he said.

Why electing an acedemic to become President was such a mistake

Even Ed Koch, former NYC mayor (D) regrets voting for and supporting Obama.

He is a catastrophe.

Victor David Hansen writes of this:

A Postmodern Presidency - A Pretentious Word for a World Without Rules

Given thirty years of postmodern relativism in our universities, we were bound to get a postmodern president at some point.

Postmodernism is a fancy word — in terms of culture, nihilist; in terms of politics, an equality of result and the ends justifying the means — that a lot of people throw around to describe the present world of presumed wisdom that evolved in the last part of the 20th century.
