J.'S 94 FIREBIRD BEING JUDGED... JR. AT J.'S BIRD... AQUACAR--I FORGET THE NAME OF THESE... J. BEING JUDGED J. AND JR. LEAD DOG AT BUDDAMAN'S ARTESIAN WELL IN WARSAW (EARTHCACHE)...It is 7:13 a.m. and 70 degrees. Another HOT summer night. Patrick and Junior are downstairs sleeping like the little angels they are. Boarder is in Room Four.
We went to the Car Show in Warsaw yesterday and Junior won another trophy.
Gators are 45 point favorites over Hawaii--that's a bit much, don't you think????
Joe Biden has started lying, from Day One. Why do they feel they have to do this?
This pick is a gift for the republicans. Biden has already said Obama is not a prime time player and is "clean"--He supported the war and is an OLD guy...WTF?
As we have long said, if he had picked Hillary, he'd be a shoo-in--but alas the ego of THE ONE who can lower the level of the Oceans and expects a shaft of light to shine down from "Somewhere" and enlighten people to vote for him, probably couldn't support that idea.
Gosh, ZUMA! has won! I deleted his found log on GC1EQRD because he did not complete the ALR's, and he has responded with this "Should be Archived" log:

This cache needs to be archived or modified to remove the right wing political rhetoric. Especially troubling is this sentence from the cache page:
"Please pray for our Patriot Armed Forces standing in harm’s way around the world, and for their families, especially those of our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, who have died in defense of American liberty while prosecuting the war with Jihadistan."
Please note that Groundspeak guidelines say this: "Solicitations are off-limits. For example, caches perceived to be posted for religious, political, charitable or social agendas are not permitted. Geocaching is supposed to be a light, fun activity, not a platform for an agenda."
Any paragraph that includes a made up right wing word like "Jihadistan" and urges folks to pray is in violation of Groundspeak rules. Please archive or modify.
Our local reviewer told me to honor his request, so I did; It's their site, not mine. They are probably right about that word not belonging on the cache page, but I can't agree that asking people to pray for our troops is troublesome. Here is my log and the modified paragraph--I hope this satisfies them.

WE HAVE REMOVED THE OFFENSIVE WORD "JIHADISTAN" AND REMOVED THE TROUBLING EXHORTATION TO PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS.
[view/edit logs/images on a separate page]
We thank our Patriot Armed Forces standing in harm’s way around the world, and their families, especially those of our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, who have died in defense of American liberty while prosecuting the Global War on Terror.
To me what's "troubling" is that in our society asking people to pray is somehow a bad thing, and that Groundspeak is buying into that. Most all Religions on Earth have some sort of praying or chanting as part of their ritual, so this is not an attack on a specific religion, but ALL religion. Yes, I call it an attack, and an attack on our country's founding principles as well. But if Groundspeak feels it needs to bend over backwards to please the Atheists, that's their prerogative and their right and I will certainly comply. Any company of mine, however, would proudly Support Our Troops...
So it goes.
