    Everyone was raised differently. We all were not raised up with the same religions, values, clothes that we like to wear, food that we like to eat, cars that we like to drive, who is attractive,etc. We all went to […]

    • if you give respect then you earn respect, but some people some people still go through racial discrimination because of judgemental personality other people have.respect is the fundamental value we need to give to other people regardless of the race, age, weight and even skin color. kudos to your article my friend!

    • Why bother categoring humans based on races! We are all the same species not different species. Race is just additional category that human create and race is not even necessary because we are the same species. Because of this race thing, human start to stereotype each race and treat different race unfairly. Wasn’t it is better that human treat everyone as one race not multiple races?

    In today’s society, many people feel that is ok to have a friend that is the opposite sex when you are in a relationship or married. I am one of those believers that do not agree on this matter. Some of our […]

    • Of course, if you love your partner and you trust each other, it’s okay to have friends no matter the sex whether it’s same sex or opposite.

    • That is true why make it a problem when friendship feeling is different from love to the one you love.

    • There are two relationships in this world that matter. Family and friends.

      Your spouse is in the “family”. I take it you know who your friends are. Sometimes family can also be friends. A spouse is usually a BFF (best friend forever). But sometimes not. Nevertheless, just because you get married, that doesn’t mean you can no longer have friends. However, if you have a friend of the opposite sex and YOU don’t know where to draw the line? Then for the sake of your family, YOU need to steer clear of that “friend”. Unless you want a broken marriage and an unhappy home.

      I think Prince Charles is an example of a man who thought his “friend” was more important than his “wife”, who he probably never loved or never even considered a friend. Yes. I speak of the late Princess Diana, a woman who would probably still be alive today, if only her husband (that jerk they call a prince) had truly loved her.

    • For me, it is okey to have friends either you are married or in a relationship as long as you know your limitations. Remember, no man is an island we need to talk with someone in every aspect of our life lets say its like interacting with other people for the sake of solidarity and social meaning. Even if you already committed you still have the chance to enjoy the company of your so called friends like going out once in a while having some cup of coffee while talking anything under the sun, watching movies together just to have fun and spend quality time together. Having our circle of friends is a part of our social life but what most importantly is your family and you’re so called significant other to have the best of time to spend your precious time with them, have some good time, and loving them in every minute of your life.

    • Me I don’t see anything wrong with having friends when your in a relationship or in a marriage. I mean let me ask this question can we really survive without friends? I don’t think so. For me its quite okay for people to have friends of the opposite sex even in marriages. When people get married they have made a bow and have made a promise to stick to their partners till death. But the thing is we are living in a world where people don’t value marriage anymore. It has actually become a material venture for people who are looking forward to becoming rich in a short time. Anyway when you are making that bow to your spouse you know that you are there to stay and to be faithful. You cannot think of even going astray. And anyway you are a grown up you know what’s right and what’s wrong, if a fri3nd of yours approached you and asked for friendship, you better than anyone else knows that that is a very wrong thing to do. You should have self control and avoid situations that will get you into trouble. You cannot live without friends in the name of being faithful.what if something happened to you or your spouse God forbid who will you run to, wouldn’t you run to your friend first? Think about it.

    It is true, some people do not think of consequences behind their actions on what they are doing. Some people get too caught up in what ever is going on at the time. When ever the thing that you are doing, comes into the light or someone else finds out, of what you are doing…most of the time, it doesn’t always end well.

    I observed something on the news this morning. It seems that the government is inventing a chip, that is going to be eventually required for everyone to have this chip. This chip is going to be placed in you in […]

    • No person would like to be tracked in everything and wherever he is going.

      The chip can make your life comfortable because with it you can buy things you need and want and even open the door for you.

      However, all your actions can be tracked by the government. Should you want solitude and privacy, it is not possible anymore.

      Your life isn’t yours anymore but by the government who placed it inside your body.

      Never will I want a chip inside my body.

    • There are people who have devices planted in their bodies for health reasons. For example, a pacemaker for the heart.

      But if I’m healthy, don’t invade my brain and my body with an external device that serves no purpose FOR ME!

      If you’re – whoever YOU are – are so keen on planting something inside of me, it must be that you have EVIL AGENDA!

      Oh yeah! I said EVIL. You’ll have a heard time trying to convince me that you mean it FOR MY GOOD.

      By the way, I don’t believe such a thing can not be removed. If somebody put it in there, somebody can take it out! It’s just as many good smart people in this world as there are evil smart people. 🙂
