That's what the prez tells me just about every time he speaks.  Islam is a religion of peace and Christians have been killing in the name of Jesus for centuries! 

And while both comments are true -- to a point, the fact is, there are Muslims who corrupt the teachings of Mohammed and wage holy wars  in the name of Allah and Christianity is and always has been a religion of peace.

And despite what many politicians say  these people are just a much a part of Islam as the Westboro Baptist Church is to Christianity. 

The ranting of Westboro are largely kept in check by the saner voices within Christianity.   The sane voices within Islam need to speak up and start taking care of the insanity within their religion.

Unfortunately politicians and other narcissistic sociopaths love to use religion (any religion) to gain power and wage wars.  And you are not going to stop them from waging their war without recognizing them for what they are and if they are hi-jacking your religion, taking it back from them.  The bottom line, unfortunately is there are way too many Muslim leaders who flat out hate Jews and Christians and don't have a problem with groups like ISIS, as long as they aren't threatening their power.  Come to think of it there are plenty of non Muslims leaders who also hate Jews and Christians and feel about the same way.

Ah yes, "peace-loving" how did I forget!

Comment by Tobias Gibson on Tuesday

It's okay, Steve.  ISIS is composed of peace loving people trying to rid the world of infidels and war mongering Christians.  You need to relax and sip more kool-aid!

Comment by Steve Hanner on Tuesday

Numerous sources confirm ISIS now chasing people into the mountain areas of Iraq. Committing attrocities along the way.

Comment by Steve Hanner on Tuesday

Yep, just another hurdle for us to go through. It's a complete intrusion into privacy, brought about by politicians who are trying to institute a form of Communist rule.

Yet another government intrusion.  There is nothing fine about Feinstein!

OK, so not too long ago we talked about the fact that some states WANT you to collect rain water and others send you to jail.  The FDA wants to regulate your back yard BBQ and now your soap???

Lawmakers want FDA to crack down on soap makers

People who are trying to do good for their families and the planet by living a simple life based on traditional skills are facing yet another assault. Artisanal soap makers say new regulations, proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) and Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), will put them out of business. Many soap makers are rural “kitchen table” operations that rely on the income to fund their simple living lifestyle.  Some use milk from goats they raise and ingredients they harvest from the land.

The Handmade Cosmetic Alliance posted this form on its website that...

That is what I was thinking.  Yes it is a viable option and it has worked for a very long time to power items.  But even the simplest project I can find are not for someone that doesnt know a good deal about this type of power

Jan, You may be interested in reading about the Stanley Motor Carriage Company.  Their automobiles were often referred to as "Stanley Steamers" and were indeed powered by steam.  They were expensive cars, I believe competing in price with the Cord.

Even today steam is used to generate electricity. 

And yes Jan, if one were to consider using steam to power mechanical devices or generate electricity, they would need a considerable amount of training.  The building of steam engines is not a DIY project.

Comment by Jan Carter on April 14, 2015 at 19:37

I have a question, is this even practical? http://survivalblog.com/the-power-of-steam-part-1-by-a-y/

I can see the practical side of it but it seems rather dangerous unless you have an engineer in your survival group
