    If you do think we are childish, that's ok. No, really. It's ok. If it bothered us what other people thought, would be be puttin' around at all the parades like this?



    Nobody makes as much fun of us as we make of ourselves. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, in our "secret" moments, , if your child is barely clinging to life, and needs our help, just call. I won't matter that you laughed at us. We'll be there for you anyways.
    Hey the Shriners are a great group. You have my support there Cap.

    The Shriners Hospitals are an asset to the communities they are in and to the U.S. as a whole.

    I always considered the superbomber tech to be like a nuke especially if you used it as a strategic bomber in that it would bankrupt the target country.

    All Shriner's were Master Mason's first. It's required. (They don't look too "secretive" to me. )

    Thanks for the kudo's but it's not necessary. It is our obligation. "Pat's on the back" are always nice but we try to avoid the notoriety. I can understand how those in the dark feel the need to "fill-in-the-blank" when it comes to things they can't understand. Half of me wants to spank them outright and the other half feels bad for them in their self induced-embarassment.

    But it does kinda feel rotten when some internet blowhard comes online and tries to poo-poo on something you know for a fact to be rightous. But, then again, we are educated to know that it serves no purpose to argue with a zealot. Sometimes, ya just gotta shake your head and walk away. Y'know?

    I know what I know. And I know that when you tell someone else everything you know, they will know twice as much as you. So, I guess I will go quietly about my work satisfied in that.

    Well, I have had a close family member spend about 2 months in the Shriners hospital in SC.

    They were treated extremely well and the Shriners covered the cost.
    In my book Shriners are #1 and if I'm around there will be no poo pooing allowed.

    #2 for me is The Ronald McDonald House. I can't say enough good things about these 2 groups.

    Re: Presidents and secret clubs?

    Well, I hope all's well with your family member and the rest of your family as well.


    But, back to topic, as much as I would hate to see a Klansman or Black Panther sit in the Oval Office, if the majority voted for them, what could we really do about it?

    But it's really a non-issue. The masses are not THAT stupid.

    There are "secret" organizations and there are "secret organizations," I suppose. Can't paint 'em all with the same brush.
