    I agree. If you look at Southeast Christian's prime membership growth, it was back when Southern Bapist Churches and the Archdiocese of Louisville were both lead by (in many people's opinion) very wishy-washy, don't offend anyone with the truth type of leaders. When the Southern Baptist Convention had it's revolution and later when Archbishop Kelly retired and Archbishop Kurtz assumed the leadership role of the Archdiocese, the growth of...

    Not necessarily. In the past 40-50 years, the church's who have had the most loss in membership are the mainline Protestant faiths (Presbyterians, Methodists, Lutherans and especially Episcopalians) and until recently, those gaining the most members where the more orthodox Protestant faiths (Southern Baptist and Evangelical Churches such as Louisville's Southeast Christian). In the Catholic Faith, it is your churches lead by a more...

    Have you read the Vatican's annual financial statements? I'm assuming no, the Vatican doesn't have anywhere near the wealth to do a tenth of what you are suggesting they should be doing. However, on a side note, charitable giving is one of the largest expenses of the Vatican. As far as bailing out parishes operating in the negative (such as my parish unfortunately), that is the parishioners responsibility first or foremost. If the...

    And you would know this how? Have you ever managed the finances and accounting of a "Big school like Trinity" before?

    So a little bit of both I believe. Would love to see your take on Pleasure Ridge Park. Their schedules in 15 and 16 were brutal but I think they are a consistent 6A Top 10 team despite their number of losses.

    Is your grading based upon how a team did compared to expectations going into the season or soley how the season went? IE Team A was expected to have the best season ever with a state championship but lost 1 in the reg season and was state runner up. According to expectations that would probably be a C or D but not considering expectations that would probably be B+ or A-.

    And the fact that this goof ball is supposedly a professional makes him even more liable for damages. If this was Billy Bob's Taxes and Book Keeping, legal action would be more of a challenge but a CPA should be easier to seek damages from.

    Have any of the major rating places rated him yet? Ie is he 4 star or better? If so, is he rated high enough that he can feel confident that he would start a few years at Ohio State or Alabama? There is nothing I hate more than to see good players go to big time schools and rarely ever see the field when had they gone to a level lower and would have gotten much more playing time.

    How could it? The worse that could happen is the attorney would say you have no case. If you and your attorney do sue and you lose, the whole "We don't get paid until you do" part comes into place. While it may cost you a little time, no money will come out of your pocket.

    Why are you so against seeking FREE legal advice on whether you can sue this tax preparer for negligence? Isn't it worth saving your home for?? It has been a while since I have done anything with taxes but I have to assume fees and interest levied by the IRS ARE NOT deductible so it is not like you will be able to recover some of this on your 2017 return either. I cannot stress enough how much you need legal advice right now.

    My choice also Swamprat. These beers are cheap for a reason, way too much water. I would just go Bourbon and wine.

    If an away game, would be a nice long weekend trip. Taking a football team that distance would be rather expensive, surprised they are doing this.

    Congrats to him. Not crazy about Jay Z or Beyonce's music but will never talk down someone's success whether such wealth is earned in the recording studio, playing field/court or the executive suite.

    I guess a little but the US is so far from being a theocracy that this bill/law is the equivalent of one step in a one mile race. The US doesn't even have a state religion such as England = Anglican; Ireland, Italy, Spain, Monaco and many other Southern European countries = Roman Catholicism. The only first world country I can think of that could labeled a theocracy would be Vatican City, all 104 acres of it.
