You will know them by their fruits. Never listen to what a man says; watch what he does. His actions speak more about his faith than a billion words.

Oh, and I'm tired of "judge not, lest ye be judged" being used over and over out of context. Read the whole book and learn what it really means.

Comment GPS is just an aid (Score 4, Insightful) 528

I'm old enough to have learned how to navigate without GPS or even maps. I use GPS nowadays, but only as an aid (ETA is fairly accurate). I've seen it make enough mistakes to not ever trust it 100%.

Learn the basics: the "sun rises in the east and sets in the west" type of stuff. Learn how roads are numbered: north/south are generally odd numbered, etc.. Learn which way the mountains in your area are oriented. Buy a map and get acquainted with the area and which way the main roads are laid out.

It ain't that hard to find your way around. I've spent nearly forty years going to places I've never been to before and I haven't been lost once.

And worst of all, they typically vote Democrat.

You can mod this down if you want, but seriously, conservative kids aren't like that at all. They may get offended, but they don't pitch a fit about it like a two year old. Home-schooled kids are even better behaved. And both groups of kids have valid reasons to be offended by the way the culture has gone in this country. They just don't cry and whine about it, and they damned sure don't try to silence people they disagree with (like some on college campuses do).
