So what's everyone's views on the Covington Catholic kids and the issue there? I think to be honest, everyone was in the wrong.

And now he is the one getting locked up.

I do not believe a huge proportion of people are for abortion except  to cover up infidelity, which several "pro lifers" would do in a heartbeat. I think it is more of an issue that women object to having their bodies controlled by politicians, judges etc. I believe the goal of pro lifers is to force women to stay at home like it was 100 years ago and have ten children since they want contraceptives banned while the men work. I will always believe the pro life movement is a racket to keep dividing people over stuff that generally is no issue out of the ordinary.

I blame the kids more than the others, there were over 30 of threm and about a handful of other haters and native Americans and those are kids around 15-18 years old and they are a bunch of tough guys and bullies in that group, why adults want to undersestimate their abilities and proclaim them "victims" is beyond me. That group caused the problems as well as the chaperones who were not taking control of the group. My feeling is they provoked the situation and a few witnesses came out saying the same thing.

Acrually, the whole thing got blown out of proportion and was started by a different  group. According to some news sources, Mr. Phillips thought he was trying to protect the kids and there has been talks that though he is a veteran he is not a Vietnam veteran and that he is known for causing controversy.  I will say for a kid to stand there and not to say anything was different. I don't think we will ever find out the truth on any of it.
I will say that when chaperoning high school kids that you give them some freedoms with a guideline on where and when to meet you because they are high school kids not elementary or middle school kids.

Yep, it is one thing to go on a field trip  but it is something else to wear something that one knows will cause trouble. They could have worn shirts or hats that just had the school  ame on them and not the hats they had.

True on  some of that but as someone who is married to a veteran and knows veterans many who have served during conflicts they don't make the claims of being a veteran of a war or conflict unless they were in it.

They were calling the kids names, even the black kids they called the Uncle Tom's
I think the whole thing was sad and I do agree that the teachers or adults there should have removed the kids from the conflict.
I heard they were waiting on a bus, but still.

Yes, I had heard that also but not many news reports show that part or has that changed now? I can tell that as someone who has chaperoned high school kids you give them some freedoms and arrange to meet them at a certain location. I think they should have worn something else instead of those hats if they wanted to be recognized as a group.

Personally, I like the hats. nothing wrong with making America great again BUT, I agree with you .... any smart adult should have seen that this would poke the political bear.  Kids shouldn't be used that way.

They have not rid us of any private health insurance, even Trump and the republicans that control him were trying to get rid of government healthcare. Obama didn’t get rid of them as he should have because they have been the problem all along and still continue to control even government healthcare.

So in summary, it is private healthcare that is NOT cost effective and does nothing to contribute to our lives. Or why would they try and sell you carp that will kill you at top dollar?

On another note we have the Cheeto man who’s now trying to conjure up a bullshh story for his wall and some in the media are calling him out on his bull.

They have needed to call him out on his bull a long time ago.
On a different note, the Diocese of  Covington admits that they jumped to the wrong conclusions about the kids in that situation and that they feel the kids didn't cause any of the problems.  I think the biggest problem they had was the chaperones should have been around them but as I said when it comes to high school kids you give them freedoms.

I think all political positions should have term limits. Further and more importantly, there should NEVER be a Government Shutdown that didn't include the President, his/her cabinet, Senators, and all members of Congress. A "State of Emergency" should only be called when there's an actual true emergency and our country is in imminent danger. Yes, I fully understand the need to control the influx of drugs, human slavery, and disease. However, as bad as those situations are, they do not put our country in imminent danger.

The second part of the verse you seem to be quoting from saying (paraphrased) "women be subservient to your husband" says, "Husbands do not be bitter with your wife".

Usually that last part is left out to push the Anti-Christian/Male narrative, that men have no responsibility to the woman.  I'm not saying some false "Christians" don't use the Bible like everyone else to push their corrupt agenda's too. That seems to becoming more and more of a problem these days, as it was foretold.  But then again, that's why we're told to be savvy in the Lords word to discern such wolfs in sheep's clothing. Not to be fooled. But I'd be careful not to go so far as to lump all Christians into that category.


Also, it seems you are trying to compare biblical law, that is a guide to how to live spiritually obedient to Gods will on Earth with a document (Constitution) that is to establish how the US Government is to be governed - it's limit of power, responsibilities etc etc, as if it were a competing guide to the same thing. So, I understand your confusion.

I agree.  Whether or not they instigated the altercation, they were being little shits the whole time they were there.  They're teenagers.  It's what they do.  There was another video shot while they were in Washington, one that hasn't really made the media rounds, which proves IMO that most of those kids were just there to get a rise out of whomever they could.

https://twitter.com/roflinds/status/1087486166939680768?lang=en

Also, this school has a long history of inappropriate racist behavior, as evidenced by these photos taken during school events.  I am not sure why the adults involved would expect these kids to behave any differently in public if this is the way that they are allowed to behave at school functions.

First video- you can't definitively recognize anyone in it. So your statement it "proves" anything is laughable at best.

Second, the Snopes article states -

"Based on comments in the BluegrassPreps message board, the intent of the black body paint was not racial but was instead a school tradition related to “black out” games, during which fans wore black to support the team. That being said, at least one person in the thread posited a connection to racist minstrel shows from the 19th century that used blackface on white actors to depict African Americans unfavorably. “That guy on the right looks like he might have been researching minstrelsy before the game,” one post read."


.....So, one person "supposedly" making a "racist" gesture, posting a blackface minstrel show, is grounds to blanket the whole school as racist, because of a school tradition that has nothing to do with "racist blackface" and dismissively ignore anyone else's incidents as racist too because they came from said school.

A school located in a state that is 87% white, 3% Hispanic, 1% Multiracial, 7% African American,  >1% Asian, >1% Pacific Islander and >1% Native American.
Park Hills, the city Covington Catholic Highschool is located in has @ the same demographic makeup.


By your logic, the State of Kentucky is now considered racist cause it has more white people.  But you're correct, the "math", when taken in context as the racial makeup of the state and city as a whole, does speak for itself. As we can see they closely match the demographic of the school. Hard to fill every school in the US with "equal" amounts of blacks/whites when they only make up 15% of the US population, but that don't make something 'racist'.

Also, I don't think most blacks send their kids to a private Catholic School to begin with, so there is that 'cultural' metric to consider.  Can we now label blacks 'religious intolerant', since we're making huge leaps in logic in our anti-white propaganda?

It would only be "racial equality" doing so, right?

Also, I don't think most blacks send their kids to a private Catholic School to begin with, so there is that 'cultural' metric to consider.  Can we now label blacks 'religious intolerant', since we're making huge leaps in logic in our anti-white propaganda?

It would only be "racial equality" doing so, right?
First of all, let's understand one thing. I never said Covington Catholic was or is racist.

Now, based on your facts let's look at the reality. If CCHS was compatable to Kentucky as a whole in racial equality wouldn't the overall figures also be comparable? There's a huge difference between 95.4% and 87% and there's an even larger difference between 7% and 0.2%. If the equality ratio were more in line with the overall Kentucky ratio, rather than 1 African American student, there would be 42.

However, let's look at a couple of other notable private male Catholic schools in Kentucky for a comparison. St. Xavier has an overall student population of 1346. The breakdown is as follows:

White - 90.6%
Hispanic - 2.4%
Multiracial - 2.3%
African American - 1.7%
Asian - 1.5%
Native American - 1.1%
Pacific Islander - 0.4%
^^^ That's probably more in line with the population figures for Kentucky.

For comparison sake, let's look at another all male private Catholic school in Kentucky. The breakdown for Trinity High School is as follows:

Student Diversity
White - 86.5%
African American - 6.5%
Hispanic - 2.6%
Multiracial - 2.1%
Asian - 2%
Native American - 0.3%
Pacific Islander - 0.1%
Unknown - 0%
^^^ That's right in line with Kentucky statistics.

Just for comparison sake, I'll also note the tuition figures for all 3 schools are drastically different. While both St.X and Trinity have a tuition of $13,000+, CCHS only has a tuition of $8,060.

Now, let's be realistic. Blackout games and whiteout games have been around a long time. People dress in the corresponding colors, they wear wigs, and in some situations, they also use paint. It's not in any way intended to be racial oriented. It's merely a motivational tool to boost team spirit and designed to be fun, not critical of any particular race. However, painting one's face black has always been considered a racial or derogatory act towards people of color. You can flip that coin however you want but the fact remains, if any action can be interpretated as offensive it should not be done. That's true for CCHS and every school in the United States. If schools are going to have blackout games, they need to restrict the code so that face painting in that manner is excluded.

Personally, I don't know if CCHS is racist or not and to be perfectly honest, I really don't care.

Further, I don't care how you or anyone else looks at it, I feel those kids were acting disrespectful at that protest. That's my opinion. You'll not change it and I doubt anything I say will change your opinion. I happen to believe a difference of opinion gives us the opportunity to be individuals. Have a nice read.  :)

I don't understand your point in mentioning other schools racial demographics, unless it's to prove my point that a place with less blacks will have less racial diversity within it's schools. Since both those schools you mentioned are in Louisville, Ky, a city that has a 32% black population. More blacks within an area would naturally equate to the probability that more blacks would be enrolled in a private Catholic school.

If we drop the percentages and look at the raw numbers (estimated 2016) Park Hills, Ky Has 238 blacks, compared with Louisville's 140,000.  Finding more blacks who are/would send their kids to a private Catholic School in Louisville raises by order of magnitude given the population. And explains why there is a little more variance, but still in line, with the states racial demographic in Park Hills.





"However, painting one's face black has always been considered a racial or derogatory act towards people of color." --ICNO


You mean only when white people do it, right?  That seems to be the ongoing MO of all the anti-white rhetoric. Saying whites shouldn't put black on their face for school colors and calling them racists- sorry, "offensive" if they do, amounts to nothing more than a grandstanding witch-hunt to fuel the radical left wing political base into a frenzy. We already see how dangerous this is with the kids being threatened physically... over wearing school colors.  Talk about unhinged.   




"if any action can be interpretated as offensive it should not be done." --ICNO



So, if a group of people come up to you and tells you that your breathing is "offending" them, are you going to stop, or does common sense and logic kick in that you are doing nothing wrong and continue to breathe?  Just the same, those kids are doing nothing wrong.

Now that I pointed out the absurdity in your 'logic' with a little bit of humor, let's go one step further and see how much you really believe in what you say, or is it all just a bunch of virtue signaling. Can you hold yourself to the same standard as you want others to be held?  I find you posting on this forum to be offensive, can you please stop?    I'm going to make a guess and say you won't, and this just highlights the hypocrisy of it all. The old "Do as I say, not as I do" Jedi mind trick.





"Personally, I don't know if CCHS is racist or not and to be perfectly honest, I really don't care." --ICNO


Going to have to call this into question. Why else would you make a comment on CCHS subject, and say they shouldn't do it cause it's view as "racist", sorry, "offfensive" if you really didn't care? It's obvious you have some concern and cared enough to voice your opinion. No need to be shy - I don't bite.



To your last few comments. I'm not here to change anyone's opinions.That's on them, out of ignorance or knowledge they can come to their own conclusions. It's all in good fun and I've enjoyed everyone's opinions, posts, views, subject matter and cognitive dissonance! :)

Thank you or your response, ICNO.

If we are going to call out racism due to a political event than maybe we should quit having Revolutionary and Civil War reenactments. I mean everyone gets so easily offended over something so stupid as painting a black face which has been around forever. Whether the kids acted disrespectful at a political event or not, whether there school is all white or not, the fact is racism exists because of the narrow mindedness of people. I don't know whether the kids acted disrespectful or not but I do believe the blame should go on all sides. It takes 2 to start an argument so there is plenty of blame to go along.
Oh and as far as a lot of minorities don't send their kids to private schools in Kentucky,  I think it depends on the area. Owensboro has 3% of the school population is minority. Louisville has about 8% and Lexington has about 8% also. Now, it is has always been public high schools have a considerable higher rate of minorities.

First video- you can't definitively recognize anyone in it. So your statement it "proves" anything is laughable at best.

Second, the Snopes article states -

"Based on comments in the BluegrassPreps message board, the intent of the black body paint was not racial but was instead a school tradition related to “black out” games, during which fans wore black to support the team. That being said, at least one person in the thread posited a connection to racist minstrel shows from the 19th century that used blackface on white actors to depict African Americans unfavorably. “That guy on the right looks like he might have been researching minstrelsy before the game,” one post read."


.....So, one person "supposedly" making a "racist" gesture, posting a blackface minstrel show, is grounds to blanket the whole school as racist, because of a school tradition that has nothing to do with "racist blackface" and dismissively ignore anyone else's incidents as racist too because they came from said school.




Real legit logic, Der.

One is too many.  Whether it was one or more, the school allowed that kid to attend the event, stand on the sidelines in traditional blackface, and scream threateningly at black players.  Inappropriate.   Adults should know better

P.S.  Sorry for the late reply.  Saturdays are busy for me.

I'm still trying to figure out why we need to stop Revolutionary and Civil War reenactments due to dangerous anti-white rhetoric (racism) at a politic event? 

 Unless you are implying that white's created the 'anti-white' racism with their 'white' racism, because in no way non-whites are racists until they experience 'white' racism.  So, it's all 'whitey's' fault again?  Can you please elaborate more?


Also, I'd like to ask why do you think people are "narrow-minded" if they are racists?  Specifically, what makes them wrong being "narrow-minded". Do you believe there is no evolutionary (biological), or even Biblical grounds (if you want to go this way) of why the races will never coexist in one big happy utopia? 


I'm asking because "narrow mindedness" is a really vague term to use, that really means nothing in terms of right or wrong.  I mean, I can make the statement that you are 'narrow minded' because you won't let a child molester babysit your kids.  So, as we can see with the example, "narrow mindedness" doesn't  necessarily mean somebody is wrong for being the way they are with their so called "narrow mindedness".

I personally see nothing wrong with the reenactments but seeing as how many feel that having a black face at an event is being racist  that is why I mentioned it. People who tend to be racists tend to narrow minded if they think that their race is the only race in the world. I tend to look at it that God made the human race and didn't say that the wihite, black, red, pink or purple is better than any other race. And no, I wouldn't let some child pervert babysit my kids and if that makes me narrow minded than so be it. I prefer to call it caring for my kids.

No worries. I'm sure you are busy virtue signaling your stance on identify politics on the Native American forums that they are racist for wearing "traditional blackface" when they dress up to cheer their culture (team). That's what I like about you, stamping out all racism everywhere, not just 'whitey's'!  /s

Thank you, Mrs. Webster.


Narrow mindedness "Not willing to listen or tolerate other people view, prejudiced"


Prejudice(d) -"Prejudice is prejudgment, or forming an opinion before becoming aware of the relevant facts of a case. The word is often used to refer to preconceived, usually unfavorable, judgments toward people or a person because of gender, political opinion, social class, age, disability, religion, sexuality, race/ethnicity, language, nationality, or other personal characteristics."



This is probably why I asked her if she believed there wasn't any evolutionary or Biblical bases (facts) for racism. And according to her answer of which one she subscribes to, if any, would determine my reply to her.

Yes, my last example was somewhat loose on the direct definition, but most people don't use it verbatim in it's meaning. With you around to keep me on my toe's, I'll make sure I'm more careful in the future.


But her answer tells me she is not stupid, and is not wrong in her answer. No more than you can say people who subscribe to evolutionary racism are wrong (It's basis is taught in school , you know). Biblically speaking, since that was her answer, I'm still deciding if I want to engage her now or wait till I've slept and be mentally prepared. Hopefully this reply isn't too scattered brained.

I would say that most people do have a degree of prejudicism or racism in them. Do I? Possibly but considering I have 2 children adopted from foreign countries, family members who are mixed, neighbors who are of different races, religious beliefs and even family members and friends who are of different sexual orientations than I would say I probably have more tolerance towards those. I try to treat all people how I want to be treated with respect regardless what they believe, don't believe or where they are in life.

I think anyone who is abusive in any form lacks self control and self esteem, instead of being ok with themselves with all the human fallacies and imperfections they take their fears and insecurities out on others, very cowardly and exhibits a extreme amount of poor moral fiber, as WLU would say off to the FEMA camp with them

Why either or?  Can you think of any other competing theories? We are either divinely made to serve a purpose or just a bunch of random meatbags brought out of the nothingness. I think that covers just about everything, don't you?

Have you asked an animal if they are racists? What did it say? ... I do understand some animals are highly tribal/territorial and kill other like animals or refuse to breed outside their packs. So one can draw conclusions that some of them can exhibit 'racist' like behaviors/Instincts. I think it would be somewhat hard to draw an exact human comparison if that's what you're looking for.  Early man was no difference, bound together in tight-knit like communities to survive - Tribalism.  Not much has changed in the last 10,000+ years. Blacks still self segregate, whites, Jews, gays etc. etc.  I believe this is why FORCED integration will always fail and causes more problems than it solves. It needs to happen organically, if at all.


Of course you will always have the outliers, but I'd take a well educated guess that most of it happens more do to social pressures. Women are not tribal (a good read is how French women who were sexual partners with the Germans, and then how they were treated after WWII ended) they will always migrate to what they perceive, even wrongly, to a more dominant mating partner. nor do they want to be seen as social pariahs.  The black culture has been made to look "cool" and "strong" in today's society. How many commercials do we see where the strapping young, built black guy is paired with a hot white woman and a wimpy acing white male? How about NEWS on TV- black male, white woman (usually blonde with ghetto booty). Have you seen the new Gillette commercial where all the black guys are saving the young white women from "toxic" white males?    Stop and pay attention sometime to watch what your actually being shown.


This is social engineering at it's best (worst), and dangerous. IMHO.




I can't either and it seems these days people have more compassion for someone who abuses animals than they do someone who abuses a child. I don't like people who abuse anyone.


Agreed.  Those dumb animal commercials with sad music make me sick.


Instead of quoting you on your other posts, I'll just go ahead an answer here. And this is really anti-climatic. I have to save all my climatic posts for Joanna, she's been known to take a 4 hour long bus ride to Ohio and dump women off bridges onto the creek bank out of jealousy. (inside joke)


Biblically speaking, there is no basis for racism.  Every human is a descendant from Adam and Eve. Although the wording in Genesis, probably due to the English translation, reads like Satan and Eve had offspring. Then you have the curse of Cain, some people think this "mark" is the dark skin color for blacks. Then there is the Curse of Ham (Canaan) is where blacks came from.

Now it isn't all towards blacks either. I've known blacks to try and use verses that describe Jesus to claim he was Negro , or that Blacks are the 'real' Jews and that all whites are Edomites bound straight for hell... so, there's that.


Truthfully, the description of Jesus sounds more like something you'd see on a Acid trip while listening to the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. IMHO.

Have you seen the new Gillette commercial where all the black guys are saving the young white women from "toxic" white males?    Stop and pay attention sometime to watch what your actually being shown.


This is social engineering at it's best (worst), and dangerous. IMHO.





Agreed.  Those dumb animal commercials with sad music make me sick.


Instead of quoting you on your other posts, I'll just go ahead an answer here. And this is really anti-climatic. I have to save all my climatic posts for Joanna, she's been known to take a 4 hour long bus ride to Ohio and dump women off bridges onto the creek bank out of jealousy. (inside joke)


Biblically speaking, there is no basis for racism.  Every human is a descendant from Adam and Eve. Although the wording in Genesis, probably due to the English translation, reads like Satan and Eve had offspring. Then you have the curse of Cain, some people think this "mark" is the dark skin color for blacks. Then there is the Curse of Ham (Canaan) is where blacks came from.

Now it isn't all towards blacks either. I've known blacks to try and use verses that describe Jesus to claim he was Negro , or that Blacks are the 'real' Jews and that all whites are Edomites bound straight for hell... so, there's that.


Truthfully, the description of Jesus sounds more like something you'd see on a Acid trip while listening to the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. IMHO.
I do not hate white, Christian males, males, or whites thought I would just cover all the bases in order to avoid being accused of being a hairy legged feminist. What I have difficulty with is the self entitlement that all seem to have. As far as back in the day when we as humans first started I don't recall reading about any racism or seeing it anywhere on the discovery channel, racism is born out of fear and lack of self esteem, it is a society issue as we are taught it by our parents/care giver. I have never traveled to Ohio to dump women off of bridges, did you start that?, that was 1 thing that was said that really annoyed me. If I were to be a killer it would be of white, Christian males, those I would feed to lions. How do you know we descended from Adam and Eve, did they commit incest cause according to the bible there were only the 2 boys, where did everybody else come from? The bible is not based on any fact and that is why Christians are so annoying they base their morals on a fairytale

Animals are territorial because they are animals incapable of rational thought and logic, they don't breed outside their pack because it is against their nature, only with humans do you find a zebra breeding with a tiger, we also have to meddle in things. I wouldn't say nor is it logical to say they exhibit racial tendencies, racism is a human malady based out of fear and lack of self esteem, I also miss WhiteyBlackman hope he can find his way here.

I think anyone who is abusive in any form lacks self control and self esteem, instead of being ok with themselves with all the human fallacies and imperfections they take their fears and insecurities out on others, very cowardly and exhibits a extreme amount of poor moral fiber, as WLU would say off to the FEMA camp with them

You have people like Joanna who believe in killing an unborn child is a 'right', but rages against somebody who abuses an animal/child.  You can't make this level of insanity up. I tried to tell her, draw pictures and sent a video link on how children are made, and that if "pro-choice" people don't want kids they should stop doing the very ONE thing causing it. I don't think it has sunk in yet....

But as we see, it isn't about really having a 'choice' cause 'my body', it's really about not wanting to pay the consequences for our actions.

Funny.

You didn't seem to have a problem with those self entitled Gays when they sued and tried to force the christian baker to bake them a wedding cake.  Weird. Luckily the Supreme Court understands that somebody else's right to be gay stops when it infringes on someone else's right to practice their religion.. Just like I'm more than sure you want somebody else's religion to stop when it infringes on their right to be gay.  This is how our republic is suppose to work.  Can you imagine the tears that you would shed if that christian baker sued to make that gay (man) marry a woman!!!!!

One of these thing isn't quite like the other. Hmmm. And No I didn't start that "Joanna's the killer', I just have a good enough memory to remember it being said.


You didn't see racism on the discovery channel? Are you being serious right now?   First off, like the History Channel, The Discovery Channel has pretty much lost all it's credibility of being an actual educational program. Second, the Discovery Channel don't show a lot of things, so saying it doesn't exist just because some TV show doesn't acknowledge it is absolutely preposterous.


To answer your question on Adam and Eve. I said "Biblically speaking", so in no way did I make that claim. I'm stating from the biblical view point that it says Adam and Eve. Eve was the mother of all man. I'd recall the verses, but since you think it's just "fairytales", I'd just be wasting my time.

The Bible don't tell us a lot of things in great detail, (Like Discovery Channel) but there is no time frame given between Cain,  Abel, Seth and their wives. Since Cain went and dwelt within the city of Nod with his wife after killing Abel, one can assume a great amount of time had passed. Since the Bible is told in a (evil) Patriarchal fashion, I'm not really surprised "faceless" women are not mentioned.

To the incest question. You're not the first one to ask this. I've asked this along with a great many others. I'd have to look it up, but I don't think we should view history through a modern lens. I do believe it was in Leviticus that God condemned sexual relations of close relatives. And such relations was then considered incest. Sorry I can't answer this one more thoroughly. Maybe somebody on here is a Biblical Scholar and chime in.




 Also, try reading the Bible once in your lifetime instead of misquoting it and failing to understand what it says. Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.

If your freedom of choice isn't under threat do you really think your views have any merit?, its not like I advocate killing of unborn kids but **** happens as they say and who am I to pass judgment on someone who makes a choice I don't necessarily think is right, consequences of a persons actions generally fall upon the person committing those actions, not so funny when your freedom of choice is on the line

Instead of ranting like a loon about stuff you obvious know nothing about, why don't you try reading the Bible just once.

Also, your lack of reading comprehension is making you incapable of understanding the simplest of idea's. Seth is Eve's 3rd male child btw. The rest you can read on your own. Maybe that will clear up some of your own ignorance.

So in what version of the bible are you referring cause I sure didn't read it in the King James version but that still didn't answer the question of where did the wife come from.

Again, the Bible is not a step by step history book. It's not going to mention everything all the time. God told Adam and Eve to multiply and fill the earth (Gen 1:4) Just because the Bible only mentions the names of Adam and Eve's first 3 male children, doesn't mean they didn't have more kids. If you of read the Bible, you would know why Seth is specifically mentioned after Abel died.  Seth's descendant's are the first mentioned  to "call upon the lord", his descendant's became the Patriarchs, the nation of Israel and eventually Christ.

Seth is mentioned being born in Gen 4:25 "And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew." And it is in the KJV.



Maybe you should read it again.

I often wondered where the other kids came from but never really cared or thought much about it. I figured not everything was written in it.

You are correct. I didn't remember it, but there it is.

Genesis 5:3-4

"When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters."


All I can find about the incest thing is, arguing if it was forbidden because it was a sin or a law to protect for genetic defects since enough generations had passed from Adam and Eve and they would begin to manifest themselves. I know it can seem "gross" to view this act from today's moral standpoint, but if we our all descendant's from Adam and Eve, then we're all family members to begin with. So there is that to think about.


And before someone from the evolutionary camp comes in here saying something. Ya, you are pretty much in the same boat of doing your kin also - if you think about it.

Joanna, you should probably close your mouth a little more often and listen.  You do nothing but jump to conclusion and berate anything you don't understand, while not even trying to even attempt to learn yourself. I don't have all the answers, I doubt no man does. I also haven't picked up a Bible in over 20 years. So even my knowledge is rusty. I've told you this before.

Look, the six O'clock news doesn't explain how the gas man delivered the gas to the gas station, but you can infer he did because you are able to put gas in your tank. right?
Oh, and it didn't mention all the women in town who had nothing to do with said delivery, must be sexist  ....right?  Dear God, seriously?

I tried to explain to Joanna equality under the law does not equate to equal biologically. Clearly men and women are made different to do different things.

I agree that women gave up so much more than they realize. Women, for the most part were always honored in western society. They may of not been able to do everything a man did, but that didn't make them unequal. They (Joanna) say they celebrate "feminism",but all the  while trying to be masculine as men. We see this insecurity play out as Joanna rages everything patriarchal. Boogieman under the bed with everything with these types of people, just like Der and others seeing racism in every non-event scenario. Sad.

Very interesting.  Thank you.


I guess Cleopatra really did have herself smuggled into Julius Caesar's chambers due to her and her brother feuding. We see the scene play out in Elizabeth Taylor's movie "Cleopatra".

She also killed herself after her lover Mark Anthony killed himself after learning falsely she was dead.  I wonder if this is where Shakespeare got the ending to Romeo and Juliet from.

"When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters."


All I can find about the incest thing is, arguing if it was forbidden because it was a sin or a law to protect for genetic defects since enough generations had passed from Adam and Eve and they would begin to manifest themselves. I know it can seem "gross" to view this act from today's moral standpoint, but if we our all descendant's from Adam and Eve, then we're all family members to begin with. So there is that to think about.


And before someone from the evolutionary camp comes in here saying something. Ya, you are pretty much in the same boat of doing your kin also - if you think about it.
Yep, I thought I remembered the Biblical.teachings of it but wasn't sure. I could have gotten my Bible down and looked it up but I guess I was being lazy. Lol.
Actually, your posts about incest isn't too far iff in some ways. My late father in law's family moved into town for hin to date girls because it was going to.be that he was almost dating cousins.  Some in his family ended up marrying cousins but they were so far down the line that it didn't matter.

And of course I had to google it.
Hawaiian royalty in the 1800 encouraged it.
King Tut had massive health issues due to inbreeding.
King Charles II, the last of Spain’s Hapsburg rulers. The result of 200 years of intermarriage (copy paste)
Cleopatra was married to both of her brothers. In fact, only six individuals filled the 16 great-grandparent roles on Cleopatra’s family tree.  (copy paste)

Interesting
Yes, royalty often married within the family. I also believe they did in Biblical times also.

Very interesting.  Thank you.


I guess Cleopatra really did have herself smuggled into Julius Caesar's chambers due to her and her brother feuding. We see the scene play out in Elizabeth Taylor's movie "Cleopatra".

She also killed herself after her lover Mark Anthony killed himself after learning falsely she was dead.  I wonder if this is where Shakespeare got the ending to Romeo and Juliet from.
I believe it was and doesn't art often imitate history?

Joanna, you should probably close your mouth a little more often and listen.  You do nothing but jump to conclusion and berate anything you don't understand, while not even trying to even attempt to learn yourself. I don't have all the answers, I doubt no man does. I also haven't picked up a Bible in over 20 years. So even my knowledge is rusty. I've told you this before.

Look, the six O'clock news doesn't explain how the gas man delivered the gas to the gas station, but you can infer he did because you are able to put gas in your tank. right?
Oh, and it didn't mention all the women in town who had nothing to do with said delivery, must be sexist  ....right?  Dear God, seriously?



For the love of everything that is good. Settle the fuq down and go get laid. lol.


Well your example isn't really applicable but for the sake of argument I will settle the fuq down but I cant speak about the second part

I tried to explain to Joanna equality under the law does not equate to equal biologically. Clearly men and women are made different to do different things.

I agree that women gave up so much more than they realize. Women, for the most part were always honored in western society. They may of not been able to do everything a man did, but that didn't make them unequal. They (Joanna) say they celebrate "feminism",but all the  while trying to be masculine as men. We see this insecurity play out as Joanna rages everything patriarchal. Boogieman under the bed with everything with these types of people, just like Der and others seeing racism in every non-event scenario. Sad.



I believe so. For the life of me I can't recall any specifics. Here I am up all night with no sleep again.

It is very applicable. And the absurdity you put on it, is the same absurdity other see you when you make such nonsensical claims that the Bible is "sexist" because it didn't mention women in one instance that didn't need to be mentioned to further the story line. For something to be not "sexist", that it needs to mention women or insert women in everything is beyond ludacris and shows how delusional and disconnected you fanatical liberal feminist are from reality.

You may deny you're a feminist all you want, but given the above intensity of your "sexist" rant you just displayed to everybody- Your actions speak louder than words.

No it isn't applicable just because its logical doesn't mean it applies, and its not how many times women are mentioned in the bible its in the content of how they are mentioned, ie: women should obey their husbands that crap is even in wedding vows, I am not fanatical perhaps a bit to passionate about how women should be equal but we aren't and I don't think we will ever be, I am also not a feminists so by painting me as such fills some need within you but its not the reality, sometimes its not what you say but how you say it and sometimes a cigar is just a cigar

Women are mentioned in the Bible all the time. In good context and bad, just as much as men are. And to finish your half-assed quote to push your anti-christian/male agenda, the second half of that verse says (paraphrased) Husbands don't be bitter to your wives.   There are rules for the husband just as much to the wife. I'm sorry if you draw false conclusions out of your own willful ignorance and loathing.


You can be passionate all you want, but let's temper some of that with knowledge before you go off half-cocked on a satanic rampage thru Christiandom, shall we? I think we both can agree on that.



Your fears of women never being equal are not unfounded. If you were equal to men, you'd be called a man. And if men were equal to women, they'd be called women. Even "equality" under the law will never happen 100%. Humans are flawed creature's, somebody will always want what somebody else has and more. The type of parity you are looking for doesn't exist - fiction. And the people promising it to you are liars, high-jacking your emotions.

You have people like Joanna who believe in killing an unborn child is a 'right', but rages against somebody who abuses an animal/child.  You can't make this level of insanity up. I tried to tell her, draw pictures and sent a video link on how children are made, and that if "pro-choice" people don't want kids they should stop doing the very ONE thing causing it. I don't think it has sunk in yet....

But as we see, it isn't about really having a 'choice' cause 'my body', it's really about not wanting to pay the consequences for our actions.

Ten biblical episodes and prophecies provide an unequivocal expression of God's attitude toward human life, especially the ontological status of "unborn children" and their pregnant mothers-to-be. Brief summaries:

• A pregnant woman who is injured and aborts the fetus warrants financial compensation only (to her husband), suggesting that the fetus is property, not a person (Exodus 21:22-25).

• The gruesome priestly purity test to which a wife accused of adultery must submit will cause her to abort the fetus if she is guilty, indicating that the fetus does not possess a right to life (Numbers 5:11-31).

• God enumerated his punishments for disobedience, including "cursed shall be the fruit of your womb" and "you will eat the fruit of your womb," directly contradicting sanctity-of-life claims (Deuteronomy 28:18,53).

• Elisha's prophecy for soon-to-be King Hazael said he would attack the Israelites, burn their cities, crush the heads of their babies and rip open their pregnant women (2 Kings 8:12).

• King Menahem of Israel destroyed Tiphsah (also called Tappuah) and the surrounding towns, killing all residents and ripping open pregnant women with the sword (2 Kings 15:16).

• Isaiah prophesied doom for Babylon, including the murder of unborn children: "They will have no pity on the fruit of the womb" (Isaiah 13:18).

• For worshiping idols, God declared that not one of his people would live, not a man, woman or child (not even babies in arms), again confuting assertions about the sanctity of life (Jeremiah 44:7-8).

• God will punish the Israelites by destroying their unborn children, who will die at birth, or perish in the womb, or never even be conceived (Hosea 9:10-16).

• For rebelling against God, Samaria's people will be killed, their babies will be dashed to death against the ground, and their pregnant women will be ripped open with a sword (Hosea 13:16).

• Jesus did not express any special concern for unborn children during the anticipated end times: "Woe to pregnant women and those who are nursing" (Matthew 24:19).

The second part of the verse you seem to be quoting from saying (paraphrased) "women be subservient to your husband" says, "Husbands do not be bitter with your wife".

Usually that last part is left out to push the Anti-Christian/Male narrative, that men have no responsibility to the woman.  I'm not saying some false "Christians" don't use the Bible like everyone else to push their corrupt agenda's too. That seems to becoming more and more of a problem these days, as it was foretold.  But then again, that's why we're told to be savvy in the Lords word to discern such wolfs in sheep's clothing. Not to be fooled. But I'd be careful not to go so far as to lump all Christians into that category.


Also, it seems you are trying to compare biblical law, that is a guide to how to live spiritually obedient to Gods will on Earth with a document (Constitution) that is to establish how the US Government is to be governed - it's limit of power, responsibilities etc etc, as if it were a competing guide to the same thing. So, I understand your confusion.

1 Timothy 2:12 - But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

That look like the wife is your equal, or owned as property?

So there’s your context.

His point was moot from the beginning. And I for one do not believe in Santa.

I believe he was trying for the goal of teaching you a lesson by way of conservatism.
Did it work?

He forgot how much even Liberals (that dirty word) too are just as concerned with their mates and offspring as much as any “holier than thou” Christian conservative.

Abraham was told to kill his son for a sacrfice. And yep, the Bible was written by men, women did have a voice. Had Joseph not agreed to marry Mary, she would have and could have been  stoned to death for being pregnant outside of wedlock. Lots of women, I imagine were in those days for that.
I agree with you.

There are more rules for women than the good old boy network as the Bible was written by men.

Do you have any proof of that?  I'd settle for a well thought out speculative reason as why you think this than your obvious anti-male, "man wrote it" excuse.
You seem to be implying men are incapable of writing "pro-female" works.   My, My, you're just the little sexist hypocrite.  Cute.



Please re-read for context because you’re bias is showing.

Men owned women.


 What does this have to do with anything I said that involves women being (paraphrased) "mentioned all the time" and "rules for the husband towards the wife" in the Bible?


1 Timothy 2:12 - But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

That look like the wife is your equal, or owned as property?

So there’s your context.



Can you please quote where I said men and women are equal?   Matter of fact, here is a quote of me saying the exact opposite.

Post #103
"Your fears of women never being equal are not unfounded. If you were equal to men, you'd be called a man. And if men were equal to women, they'd be called women. Even "equality" under the law will never happen 100%. Humans are flawed creature's, somebody will always want what somebody else has and more. The type of parity you are looking for doesn't exist - fiction. And the people promising it to you are liars high-jacking your emotions" -WLU



The question should read as, “why is he peddling the conservative Christian nonsense that we’ve all heard before?”

His point was moot from the beginning. And I for one do not believe in Santa.

I believe he was trying for the goal of teaching you a lesson by way of conservatism.
Did it work?

He forgot how much even Liberals (that dirty word) too are just as concerned with their mates and offspring as much as any “holier than thou” Christian conservative.

Hope this helps.

Why?   Probably because of the same reason your peddling your anti-christian, anti-male nonsense we've all heard before. This is a forum to voice divergent views. Surprising, right?

I also don't believe is Santa.  So don't expect a stocking stuffer from me this Christmas.

"I believe...."  Well, I guess it's nice to know you believe in something.

Don't remember saying or even implying Liberals don't care for their children or mates.  Quote please.

Considering all these spammed replies you did are "moot", I doubt it helped anyone reading them.




What type of point are you trying to make?


Looks like it's try to make a point in hysterics of how not to debate.   Nothing but spammed replies as you can see that have nothing to do with anything actually said.

As a known (maybe not here yet) person who can play the Devils advocate on just about any topic, I'm surprised you keep repeating this.  I think getting people to look in the mirror at their hypocrisy and flawed logical/critical thinking has noting to do with "trying" for knee jerk reactions .regardless if they're white, black, secular, religious, male, female, adult or child. If there is a knee jerk reaction, that is more of the natural reaction of someone coming to terms with reality than you (others) falsely thinking I'm goading you (others) on for it.


I could of just as easily throw out verse about how the Bible condones racism and/or sexism and have in the past (on Topix), just as well as said I don't believe it does. As seen in a few other topics on this section of the forum, there is a overwhelming liberal slant on everyone's comments. So if you (others) wrongly think I'm a "right wing, Christian entitled white male" it's only because it's a product of the environment of these forums. If this was a right leaning forum, I'd probably be called a liberal fanatic. I know, just imagine that one....right?

People who stop questioning the world are intellectually dead.  Those people are unable to cope outside their 'Plato's cave'.  They would rather keep watching the shadows on the walls, fearful of what they might see if they were able to look away.  Those types of people have threads removed, have uncontrolled emotional outbursts towards different views, as seen already here on this forum. It's quite sad to think these types of people fancy themselves as "intellectuals".


I suppose if everyone wants to bury their head in the sand, circle jerk each other off whilst patting each other on the back in their delusions, I could leave (don't worry, I'm not).  But I suppose this forum section would get pretty boring just being a reverberation of the status quo. Imagine me if you will, as the harbinger of the truth of reality. The slave of old, who whispered in the ears of triumphant roman generals that he was "only human", to keep him grounded in reality and humbled.


It's a public service, and someone has to do it. And I do it quite well.


Love, WLU

You have been known and admitted yourself that you have tried to get me to become an emotionally enraged, I think you do this to lead the discussion away from when its been noted that you were wrong, which is more than you think. A truth you have spoken is yes you do this quite well but sometimes your perception of reality tends to be flavored with just a taste of narcissism, its ok I find it compelling enough

I don't like discussing politics really because I believe everyone has the right to choose as with their religion or lack of.
I'm a Pagan, female, Trumpet Republican, and I'm fine with that.

You can quote the bible all day long but I highly doubt it's the word of God, more like a man made script.
The past cannot be changed, what happened in ancient times is dust.
 
What I see going on in this country is division, and that is quite sad.

I was never an Obama fan but I never bashed him. I did my duty by voting for my choice.
I think all this bashing and investigating is a big waste of time and money.

Yes yes .... I am slightly off topic here but I have opinions, a voice, and a mind that works.

I’m fine with whatever suits other’s, so as long as they are not trying to shove their religious bull down everyone’s throats. And that’s where I draw the line.

And most political leaders are professional narcissistic liars. And we have one of those in our White House as we speak. However, if some people prefer to bury their heads in the sand when they should have a look at the evidence is of great importance to all of us that live in this nation.
We deserve better than this and need to change our political landscape that is only improving the wealth of the upperclassmen, or “good old boy network” of traitors instead of implementing good changes for all that live therein.

The past cannot be changed, but we can currently learn from our past to change our future for the better of all on this planet Earth we call home.

I am an Atheist who sees the rights of others as well as my own. However, I believe we have a far right political issue that seems to love dictators, theft or our treasury that’s been converted into corporate welfare, a huge military and industrial complex that needs to be ousted because this too is sending us into bankruptcy, as many can attest that it is a walloping 80% of our budget notwithstanding the perks and professional jobs given to the crooks in our government while “in service to we the people”, yet are only serving themselves at our expense.
And we need to put all of this to and end by having representation for all people. This is not just a nation of the privileged when we all live here.

So I strongly disagree with your belief because we need to investigate all of them to include but not limited to one Donald J. Trumpet.

Have a happy day and peace be with you 🙂

 Not everyone’s paycheck is bigger, I know many who wound up shorter than the year before. And what did Trump keep his promises on? Oh yes. I believe he was asking his Daddy Putin to get dirt on Hillary. So as for he being so “innocent” and all, well, let’s just say your blindness is bliss. lol

Yes we will continue to see his obvious blatant lies and obfuscations while you just cover your eyes or look the other way.
Sad reality, but nevertheless it’s the truth.

And do you think that Trump is not any kind of political scam artist? If not, why not? lol
No. I can tell you’ve been itching just to yank a chain where only your chine lies.

Would you like to see Trumps lies and other amusements for yourself?
Didn’t think so.
Keep covering you eyes and follow like a good little puppy. I’m sure if you were with him he’d put the blame squarely on you to make himself look clean.
I can accommodate if you wish for the proof of his bullshat. lol

So as for not “throwing yourself into complicated issues” and all, I’d say you thrive on it as much as we do.

I too live a simple life and bother no one, I make a good salary and earn every penny. However, when it comes to the political atmosphere, I know much more than the lines of republican jargon you’re playing here. lol

So yes, opinions very. However, if you want the truth to even your Trumpet then I would suggest that you stick the the facts and you’ll do better than the party lies. As an informed opinion will take you much further than the lines the Trumpet and both conservative parties will ever give.

As I stated, I think all politicians lie and there is the whole problem in a nutshell.
I can honestly state that I'm glad I voted for Trump as the other choice was a bigger liar. Would you really want Hillary in office?
Sometimes it the choice between 2 evils.
If you dig deep enough, you can always find dirt on any President we've elected.

So instead of slinging insults, I will take my puppy on a blind walk.

As I stated, I think all politicians lie and there is the whole problem in a nutshell.
I can honestly state that I'm glad I voted for Trump as the other choice was a bigger liar. Would you really want Hillary in office?
Sometimes it the choice between 2 evils.
If you dig deep enough, you can always find dirt on any President we've elected.

So instead of slinging insults, I will take my puppy on a blind walk.
Try not to get so worked up over my post, it's just my humble opinion.
So why did you vote for another lying politician? That’s what Trump dose all the time. Here, let me show you so you can have a better perspective on this particular issue. 🙂

Please. The guy is an idiot. 😂
You really should find better news sources than Faux ‘cause, and put blunt, he’s a snake oil salesmen.

And as far as Hillary goes, no. I would not want her in any more than I want your precious Trumpet. But not even she lies as much as Trumpet.
She even won the popular vote that republicans gave to Trumpet. 😆

And we as a nation should be cleaning house so there are no choices of those two evils.

Dirt is always to be found; however, how much dirt we have here with this sitting, and I mean sitting President is by far more than any we’ve had in the past.

If everyone would step back and take a breath. Let the man do the job at hand instead of digging up past discrepancy, which any past President certainly has.

Hockey pucks ..... never seen Obama swing at a ball, lol.
He does work and he puts up with haters constantly, almost every President does.
Apparently he works very hard or we wouldn't hear about everything wrong he does on CNN .... phffft!

Being the President has to be the hardest most ungrateful job in the world.
His famous quote is to make America great again, what on earth is wrong with that? Why are people so opposed to that statement, because he said it? That's silly!

What is a waste of time and money, our money, is 2 year investigation that came up with squat.
Just think where else money could be spent instead on frivolous carp that the politicians keep dragging up.
I remember Obama going through the same, they wanted to see his tax returns, questioned his being American or not. All this that these people bring up is no better than a bait and switch game .....   hogwash.
Career politicians are a joke and Trump doesn't play by their rules. And that is exactly why I like him.
He is not the problem.
People ought to rethink who they re-elect in positions of power.

That is just my opinion. I don't follow the crowd and I don't put much stock in the media anymore. Movie stars involving themselves, good grief. How many people said Trump would never be elected? I imagine there are a lot of people like me who wanted something different this go around. He may lack political tact, and have a big mouth but I like his bluntness.

I like that he tweets. He's up front.
You don't have to like him, but he was voted in. Imagine if the slander would stop. maybe, just maybe, he could get a lot more done.

Again, I'm not really big on politic talk. These are just my thoughts. I don't put anything about politics on my FB simply because I have Dems and Libs as friends. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and I don't step on those.

Because it's not relevant. They don't need the funding.
The federal government gives about 11 million (10%) and they raise plenty through donations, about 111 million on their own.
The only reason it's an "outrage" is because Trump is doing it, lol ..... it has been voted down before because it's been put up by past politicians. LOL! This isn't new!
What? They might have to make some administrative cuts?

I did answer that in another post.

But if people would dig deeper on the ideas and not who is proposing them, have an unbiased look at the solutions he puts out for problems.
Look .... Obamacare was almost a good idea, but look what happened. Some peoples insurance became outrageously high.  And because they couldn't afford it, they were penalized on their tax refunds ..... JUST WOW!

I just bring that as an example.

1st off, he didn't rob the money from SS, previous government did that and now it's broke, yes?
It's going to be a hard fix and because he didn't address it in his state of the union speech, everyone concludes the worst. The media ran with it, of course.
Now think about this .... his bloody wall. How about the money we save from housing and medical for illegals, go to give back to SS and medicare?
SS as it stands right now will not be able to pay all benefit in 2032. There is no quick fix here.
Trumps idea?  Faster economic growth.
Copy/paste
Mnuchin says tax cuts, fewer regulations, and better trade deals will boost growth and thus enough revenues to keep the programs going as they are—and avoiding the need for painful cuts or tax hikes.
None of that has panned out yet. The White House is now fighting a four-front trade war with America’s biggest trading partners—Canada, Mexico, China and the European Union—but so far, no new trade deals. As for economic growth, Trump’s own Commerce Department says the U.S. grew at a 2.2% annual pace in the first quarter of 2018, down from 2.9% in the fourth quarter of 2017.

There is a whole article about it if you choose to dig deeper

"NATIONAL VIETNAM VETERANS DAY"

"Welcome home Vietnam Veterans!

Two years ago, President Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act into law. This Act designates every March 29 as National Vietnam War Veterans Day. It was March 29, 1973, when the last of our combat troops left Vietnam.  It was on that day that the last American prisoners of war held in North Vietnam came home.

Honor Flight Bluegrass honors the nine million American men and women who served on active duty from November 1, 1955, to May 7, 1975.  We remember the sacrifices of more than 58,000 whose names are etched into the Vietnam Memorial.  God Bless those who have served....and, please know we appreciate you."

That ^^^^ is the only thing that Mr. Trump; holding office as President, has done thus far, for which I am appreciative and grateful. My father was a Vietnam Veteran. He served proudly and obediently. He loved his country. He taught us to love our country. He instilled in us the knowledge that this was a great country then, it's a great country now, and at no time has it ever ceased to be a great country. Unfortunately, Mr. Trump will not consider my father a war hero under his premise of what constitutes a war hero. However, in my eyes and in my heart, my father was a hero just as John McCain was a hero and no coward with "bad feet" and a big mouth is going to convince me otherwise.

God Bless America!

As someone who has professed to being a Democrat most of his life, does he really 'hate' Obama or is Trump smart enough to know he had a good chance of  winning  the Presidency by running on the GOP's 'hate' for Obama?   There is a bit of a difference in the two. Personally, I don't think Trump hates Obama one Iota.

Is he a plant to destroy the GOP as Weepy pointed out? 
Possible -Yes.
Probable - I'd never bet against it ever happening.


True or not, between Trump's NPD of wanting to be seen as a "winner" with all the attention that comes along with it and the Media's constant demonization. I think it has had the unintended consequences of making Trump to be far more popular and far more bold in his policies than he otherwise could of been.  Good possibility Trump himself has been caught up in his own rhetoric while the Democrats have constantly overplayed their hand, exasperating the situation by galvanizing the right while polarizing the political landscape even further.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Remember that one socially awkward Jr High student that never fit in because the only thing they could ever talk about was Dungeon's and Dragons in every conversation no matter what? That is Cygnus.

If you scroll back through most of Cygnus "political" posts, you will see some form of "Faux News" uttered Ad Nueseam. If you take notice, Cygnus fails to actually engage in political debate at any depth beyond the usual outdated rhetoric because it's all they can do. He tries and hide this fact by stating  "Republican talking points that have no value for consideration." as an excuse as to why he refuses to. 

Cygnus just mimics (repeats) over and over what they feel is the "cool" thing to say, so they feel like they fit in and are accepted to the dominant (largest) group in here.  To a point this isn't necessarily a harmful thing to do, mimicking is an evolutionary safety mechanism that has been used to show social conformity and that you're a non-threat to the group. These are the rank-and-file "Beta's" of the world that play it safe and are not risk takers.


I wouldn't take his rhetoric personal or even as a serious debater in these matters, it's just his way of fitting in.

This is the closest place I could find to vent, so I hope Im in the right place LoL! I'm not here to debate, or argue, or even listen to the other side because minds won't change, and people think they're always an expert on this subject.

After all the media hype around Georgia, and their Heartbeat Bill, Ohio went and signed it into law, along with 4 other states following suit. I can't even begin to describe how infuriated I am about this. Most women do not take abortion lightly. It will weight on their minds for a lifetime. It's a heavy subject. I get it. What I don't get is young women, (many low income), scared teenagers, battered women, and so on will not know they are pregnant, before the time is up to terminate a pregnancy which can be 5/6 weeks!

A bunch of suits are making laws, and I'm not seeing a panel of doctors in these Chambers. This law gives no exception to ****, or incest. I also haven't heard if the budget was raised for foster parents, child abuse prevention, sexual education for young teens, or help for women that are delivering severely handicapped kids that will never have a chance to raise from poverty.

I'm all for your beliefs, politics, religion, but everyone wants to make abortion illegal, and say it's wrong, or murder, or demonize a woman for making a life changing mistake, or say it's not God's way, but no one offers to help these teens/women when the baby is here! Does anyone realize that if every church in the USA adopted a child, we would not have any in foster care? That's how many churches we have that preach goodness, and yet we have children that are abused, beaten, not wanted, and term out of the foster system at 18. Now we are now adding to that.

This should of never been a political issue. Abortion should of always been between a female, and her doctor, and this bill just made it harder for doctors in these 5 states to properly give medical care without worrying about losing their license. Medicine does not belong in the category of politics, or religion.

That they now seem to dislike Donald Trump is because they actually do__with good reason, and they actually know Donald Trump.

I watch it on occasion for their take on Donald Trump and I do like some of the guests they bring to the table, but during the Bush administration they were driven more by lies than trying to get to the bottom of things, so I stopped watching.
What would be the point when Joe would talk as if he’s a Christian and swearing every other word.

Then he acted as if the clouds parted and it was some kind of miracle when he pointed out some places stared playing Christian music and, again, he’d be swearing every other word.

Joe was a Republican US House member from my state (FLA) with one of the highest ratings from the Conservative Union. He took money from the NRA and all other RW causes and voted that way each and every time. If he were still a R US House member he'd still be doing that because that is how politicians roll.

Mika, the daughter of Zbig Brezinski was born into left leaning politics and has never strayed.

Clearly, today they are both disgusted by Donald Trump and they actually know the guy, hung out with him a little prior to his capturing the nations top spot.

Leaders in the past were no different, so it’s not surprising. Even Adolf Hitler had a double even before the end of WW2, so it’s not surprising at all given they are both disliked more as time marches on.

All of them who were afraid to serve their country are sniveling cowards. Bolton, Orange Painted face orangutan man, Trump, Bolton and Bush were all kept out of the war to be safe at home. I even remember how Bush with his “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED” sign was bragging how he flew fighter jets, yet he was awol for most of his stay says all I need to know about he and his spoiled family of cowards.

He must really own Twitz to blow all the money that came his way, his businesses made  like 400 million last year and probably has nothi g to show for it, that is why he does not want anyone seeing his taxes..

I lost all respect for the GOP on that day he gave that speech while the crawl at the bottom of the TV screen was describing fighting and deaths at the same time. I have issues with Chris Matthews on that day gushing with mAnn Colter about dubs flying that plane on that ship, which had the camera pointed at the open sea and the San Diego skyline behind them, pretending to be 100 miles out when they are just  couple miles out. You gotta go far out to get the SD skyline out of the picture...
I fully agree, Weepy, all he was doing was trying to make himself look big when the accomplishment was actually as stupid as Bushy Boy.

I remember him giving the order (you know he did as all that came from the top) to bunch up Iraqis men together in prison on some kind of gay thing. Did you notice how much Bushy liked taking bad about gays, yet he surrounded himself with them? 🤣

The only one’s that hate gays as he supposedly did are gay themselves. You could tell it.

RxUSH is an actor playing a character while popping oxy pills like they were M&Ms. He was busted for gay solicitation in the 70s when he was in his 20s while he was a DJ floating across the country.

His handlers are doing their best to keep that info off the internet but plenty of it still exists. There was tons of info on him 20 years ago..

Ann Colter has been rumored to be a man in drag, cannot confirm that but I have seen compelling evidence that is true.

Almost every modern right wing mouthpiece has skeletons in their closet, these people replaced the old school conservatives like Paul Harvey etc, after the lifting of the fairness doctrine the konservative movement decided to go the shock jock route thus the pollution on the airwaves today...

I’m very much in agreement with you buddy. This administration is full of crooks and Trump is not above the law and needs to be impeached now! Talk to your senators and your representatives in congress to have his ass impeached for constant lies and obstruction of justice. Because in the end, if he had nothing to hide then he would share his tax returns to vindicate himself and not providing those tax returns says he has a lot to hide.

After all, he did promise to release them while Obama was in office, so his **** poor excuses don’t work anymore, not with the republicans here in my area who are finally taking notice for the first time.

Pelosi is correct, the GOP  senators are in lockstep and would never vote yes so impeachment is a waste of time, he has to resign like Nixon did and that is a possibility  and would force the GOP politicians to grow a spine. Something they never had in years..

I would be patient, stuff will come out that the lemmings will not be able to defend. Trump is going to jail unless he is pardoned and even if he is NY will indict him on state  crimes, his only hope is to have his gullible base support him and hope a strong third party candidate would allow Twitler to win 2020 with 37% of the vote...

Very well put. However, the last time Pelosi was in charge she was saying the whole time that she was waiting on Bush to be out of office when she should’ve been investigating that imbecile of tyranny and everyone knows it. I am hoping that she does get his tax returns and show the country just how corrupt this administration really is because no one is buying his lies anymore and a prime example of this is, Fox News?

Same instance, impeachment would be for show only. At that time Dems has a narrow majority in both chambers and the truth is several Dems voted yes for his made up war in Iraq and was stupid for doing so, that was why Hillary Clinton was rejected over Obama for the 2008 nomination and several Dems were culpable..

What pissed me off during that episode aside is the GOP and their minions at Fox News threw many soldiers under the bus after they gotten injured or forced into homelessness while honorably serving in that manufactured war and called them drug addicts and other things while hiding behind the flag and 95% of these neocon supporters were pzzys when it came time for them to serve their country and kept their children from serving and lusted at watching other people fight their wars while many of them profited off it and suckered many idiots into believing them.

In the recording, Schiff can be heard repeatedly asking for specifics about the nature of the meetings.

“I’ll be in touch with the FBI about this. And we’ll make arrangements with your staff. I think it probably would be best to provide these materials both to our committee and to the FBI,” Schiff says.

Hey, Realtime! Nope, not duped. You still can't read. Trump also said he would go to the FBI if the info was bad. The point was you don't know it's bad until you give it a listen like Schiff was going to do.  It's not illegal or a thing of value until you use it like the dossier.

I mean this Tweet blames Trump. Don't people remember Obama (the Democrats) let millions of Illegal Immigrants in.
Illegal entries during Obama were at a decades long low while deportations were high.

Here are some "accurate" articles on the subject

Schiff gets punked by two Russian comedians who claimed to have dirt, naked photos of Trump. How do you know if you should call the FBI if you don't give them a listen first? I suppose it is right or wrong depending on who you are when dealing or thinking you were dealing with Russian dirt

https://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/report-schiff-fell-for-russian-prank-call   

I like the part when Schiff says material should also go to his committee.
Aww, that’s nothing in comparison to this:

From the article you linked

In the recording, Schiff can be heard repeatedly asking for specifics about the nature of the meetings.

“I’ll be in touch with the FBI about this. And we’ll make arrangements with your staff. I think it probably would be best to provide these materials both to our committee and to the FBI,” Schiff says.

So__duped?  LMAO

Trump orders strike against Iran and then abruptly backs off.

Was he bluffing? Who knows, the afternoon meeting with the congressional leaders could have brought him to his senses. More likely it was the Pentagon's assessment that the US would suffer 150 or so KIA's.
Someone must’ve told the little orange baby that he can’t order such strikes because only our congress can declare war, as they hold the pursestrings that he had no control over.

How far did Clinton and Bush get when it came to government secrecy?
They can’t and won’t know everything that’s going on especially when it comes to our government conducting secret experiments on the general public to JFK and the like? How far did they get, eh?
_______

And wasn’t it during the Bush administration that not even the media can no longer talk about government weather experiments?
Why is that? Why did Shrub have something to do with hiding the truth when it came to his clan wanting to wage a war on his own US citizenry through weather experiments to do several things?

One, his Klan wants a nation subservient to their will and not by the people.

Two, he wanted to wage war on the people in the states that did not agree with his bs.

Three, he and his ilk wanted to say that the reality of Global Warming was all made up and he did this also through those big corporations he had chosen to be in his administration, and through FAKE NEWS OUTLETS that they paid for.

Four, who do you think was really responsible for 9/11/01?

Five, his father wanted more control over the government to thus make up the story that there was a wall between the FBI, CIA and our Military when in fact his father wanted more control over them to totally answer to the president instead of the congress and citizenry that actually pay for it.

Six, he was attacking anyone that was against his administration by whatever means possible. And this included anyone in the government, but I guess it’s always okay for he and his ilk to be as corrupt as they want, but don’t anyone else lie, right? Right.

And, his family of criminals wants the US to be a Theocracy, but they too are to be submissive to the state.

That’s why we have just another joke in office that the republicans want him to walk at all costs.

The same presidential power exists. He has 48 hrs. to notify Congress and 60 days to complete whatever action he is taking before he needs congressional approval to continue. I didn't say I agreed with it. These things shouldn't get started without a congressional declaration.

Just so you know, I'm happy Trump called off the strike. I thought we were going to have another Gulf of Tonkin moment. Bolton being the new McNamara. Cooler heads prevailed. That's a good thing.

Tell me, why wasn't everyone all upset when Obama involved the American military in Lybia without Congressional approval?

Trump has trashed the Bush family a long time, Ronald Reagan did not like him either..


I remember in 2016 that when his daughter Ivanka gave a speech at the RNC in Cleveland, she espoused clearly liberal views, I was astounded she was not booed off stage.

I will always believe Trump's goal was to destroy the GOP's reputation and it was personal, the Democrats wanted no part of it and is related to 9/11. There was no major or minor conservative newspaper that endorsed Trump for president, including our local newspaper, which never endorsed a democrat until 2016. Roger Ailes joined Trump's campaign and they nearly came to blows. Hannity and those stooges are scared they will lose their audience if he stood by his principles, which Trump never shared. Several of these people are being blackmailed and will not fight Trump.

Ever notice how the GOP had been eating their own since Trump been president? Jeff Sessions was a popular Senator on that side until he served for Trump, MCConnell and gang threw him under the bus. Trump knew damn well he had to recuse himself. I remember seeing the look on Chris Christie's face when he endorsed Trump, Christie put Kushner's dad in prison.


Trump does not care about his reputation in history nor does he care about prison, he will not serve in the general population and will be treated like a King, no different than Bill Cosby and others. He wants this country to burn down in anarchy and motivates childen in schools to bully others, etc..

I can go on and on but it will take a couple decades for the full picture to develope from this adventure...

I'm a fan of liberty, freedom, limited federal government, free market, the constitution. I lean conservative Libertarian. I have some problems with Trump, but overall he seems to be working out. Keeping his campaign promises anyway.   I also have problems with the stupid party as you do. I liked some Democrats, not many. I just don't like the New Left and a central power accumulating power and control.

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!

How do you explain all of the det cord to the employees?  The towers weren't your normal type of building, open floor about an acre big with a central tower with stairs and elevators. You would have to open a lot of ceiling to place some sizable charges on the floor beams and stairwells.

You are reading but you are not comprehending, I am not gonna spend all night explaining to you you that things can be done by as few as three sets of teams who does not know how the other two sets of operations work. Look up the Manhattan Project, which built the atomic bomb, no one person knew how to build the entire freaking bomb and they had no clue that was what they were  working on until the bomb was dropped in Japan. It is to prevent full plans from falling into the hands of an enemy by one or two spys, etc...

Many manufacturing jobs are operated similarly, you know your role in installing a piece of material but you do not know how that piece was made, by another operation.


It is obviously over your head. Go back to doing what your thpe does best, parrot platitudes and cliches you copy from a TV mannequin or go play the word games and let those who knows what they are talking about explain these things...

So, you're saying the employees were either in on it or didn't know what det cord or explosive charges are?   They weren't curious about people walking around an open floor plan with all of that cord?

There was an interesting show on the History Channel about Area 51 years ago if anyone can find it.

The military men that worked there were interviewed about their positions in the making of the first Spy planes against Russia. They were housed in Pods on the base, and were given orders to never speak of their jobs. Each had one specific job to do (Engineers) without knowing what the other men were working on. They understood it was something to do with planes, but did not know the extent of the project till completed. It was to keep the full plans out of enemy hands, which eventually failed because Russia shot the Spy plane down, and made their own after our plans.
It was very interesting. Try to find it, and watch it.

I saw that. The same with the stealth fighter. 911 Was simply blowing up a building. That was a number of people in a single place opposed to a number of people in numerous places.

No idea Teaman. I just brought up my story to tell how military secrets work from everyones past conversation. How everyone has a job, but do not always know the details of that job to prevent leaks.

On 911, that was a horrible loss with many still suffering, and for me to speculate on anything other than the Intel was missed, and terrorist accomplished what they set out to do would be minimizing the deaths of so manys. That day changed things forever for all of us.

I know. Homeland Security was created after the missed intelligence that could have stopped 911.

You're right about Clinton. I recall a program that had a CIA operative say he had the opportunity to assassinate Bin Laden and requested permission to do so. Not only was he refused, but he also faced disciplinary actions for wanting to assassinate him.

Your party never cared anyway, they overdramatized an embassy bombing that killed four people for political puposes caused by a GOP controled congress who refused to pay for their security after being requested. 10 times more people died in embassy bombings in the GWB and Reagan admins but "those were didferent blah blah blah" according to teabaggers..,

No, I didn't like Gadaffi. I was wondering why no congressional approval was needed then but you want it now when Trump wants to do something. It appears hypocritical. 

The other embassies weren't denied requested additional security.

I disagree. It was planned the day of the Press dinner that Trump was humiliated and there was footage of him, Hillary Clinton etc there discussing it.  It is hatred over that man being president that he will never be given credit for anything he did and history will look at him in a favorable light unlike the last tnree GOP presidents, heck even Reagan's credibility has dropped since he was there...

I never said I had all the answers but I am not naive enough to take the word of a TV mannequin (ie Hannity) nor parrot it and I am a thoughful person and very opinionated.

After he gave the approval he did not know precisely when the raid would occur, nor for that matter did the guy who actually pulled the trigger on OBL.

Obama went to the golf course earlier that day to add a sense of normalcy to his own activities and then was in the situation room during the raid__so I'm gonna say that he had a pretty good idea of what was happening.

If you will notice in the link I provided that he didn't announce it until later in the night after confirmation that it was bin Laden. I actually know someone who could have taken bin Laden out when Clinton was president and wasn't allowed to do so. He never liked Clinton after that. Lol.

I can when Obama was the one who got the DNA confirmation that it was Osama and I believe it was confirmed by many that it was him. It is not in a seal team person to lie past or present. It goes against their training.
This tells why it was a burial at sea.

Obama had UN approval, France rightly lead the way.

And this      Two days after the U.N. acted, the United States and other NATO countries, including Britain and France, enforced a no-fly zone over Libya by Gadhafi’s air force while starting to bomb his assets. Seven months later, in October 2011, after a military offensive backed by a group of Western powers, rebel forces conquered the North African country, located Gadhafi and killed him.

According to Alan J. Kuperman, writing in the March-April 2015 issue of Foreign Affairs: “Not only did Gadhafi endanger the momentum of the nascent Arab Spring, which had recently swept away authoritarian regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, but he also was poised to commit a bloodbath in the Libyan city where the uprising had started.”

Obama declared: “We knew that if we waited one more day, Benghazi—a city nearly the size of Charlotte—could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world.” In the Rose Garden speech after Gadhafi’s death, Obama noted, “Without putting a single U.S. service member on the ground, we achieved our objectives.”

Kuperman, writing in the March-April 2015 issue of Foreign Affairs: “Not only did Gadhafi endanger the momentum of the nascent Arab Spring, which had recently swept away authoritarian regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, but he also was poised to commit a bloodbath in the Libyan city where the uprising had started.”

Obama declared: “We knew that if we waited one more day, Benghazi—a city nearly the size of Charlotte—could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world.” In the Rose Garden speech after Gadhafi’s death, Obama noted, “Without putting a single U.S. service member on the ground, we achieved our objectives.”

That's right. The problem is the UN doesn't run this country.

Stevens asked for funds? What are you smoking?
Did he?

A. Stevens should never have been in Benghazi that week but having been there many times before he felt comfortable, as though he was among old friends.

B. Benghazi was not an embassy but an embassy outpost aka an annex and what little security did exist there was in no way trustworthy.

C. Two State Department personnel died as a result of the attack on the annex, the ambassador and Sean Smith a data specialist. The two others that were killed were military contractors who died defending a nearby CIA base.

D. Special agent Scott Strickland, who was Ambassador Stevens security guard on that day and the only eyewitness within the annex to the initial attack was never called to testify during the Benghazi public or behind closed door hearings.

E. It was eventually learned that Paula Broadwell of David Petraeus fame shared that the Benghazi CIA base was being used as a jail setting up the likely theory that it was the actual target of the attacks and was a black ops facility.

France lead the way, we, the Brits and others merely assisted__that makes a huge difference.

You may recall that years earlier, Bush I set out to kill Gaddafi and almost succeeded on no more than a whim.

WiKi   The 1986 United States bombing of Libya, code-named Operation El Dorado Canyon, comprised air strikes by the United States against Libya on Tuesday, the 15 April 1986. The attack was carried out by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps via air strikes, in retaliation for the 1986 West Berlin discotheque bombing. There were 40 reported Libyan casualties, and one U.S. plane was shot down.

I am not in the Navy nor have I served but was there with an ROTC group. They allowed our school group to have a tour on an active ship which is unusual but it was fun or was until a storm came up and we had to wait for it to blow over on the ship.

Sorry that I don’t buy into all the stories our government says is true, or were you ever aware that this same government is responsible for more than one tragedy to include but not limited to Iraq being blamed by Bush for the 9/11/01 attack when that was actually done by the Shrub administration itself and not by any outsider. That’s a fact.

Ask yourself this: why was Bush 1 so into Obama when the rest of the republican congress wasn’t? Why was Obama’s polices very much the same as Bush’s? Why did the Bush administration allow the Saudi family leave the country without being questioned by the FBI?

France lead the way, we, the Brits and others merely assisted__that makes a huge difference.

You may recall that years earlier, Bush I set out to kill Gaddafi and almost succeeded on no more than a whim.

WiKi   The 1986 United States bombing of Libya, code-named Operation El Dorado Canyon, comprised air strikes by the United States against Libya on Tuesday, the 15 April 1986. The attack was carried out by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps via air strikes, in retaliation for the 1986 West Berlin discotheque bombing. There were 40 reported Libyan casualties, and one U.S. plane was shot down.

The subject was congressional approval. I don't know if there was an approval or notification in the 1986 bombing. It's ironic France denied air space for that raid.

Than what are they afraid to show? I don’t buy into this not unless I have verification as well as many more Americans want the same. We need proof and not something from someone who says they have a friend that heard it from a friend who intern heard it from a friend, as that is all hearsay.

I am not in the Navy nor have I served but was there with an ROTC group. They allowed our school group to have a tour on an active ship which is unusual but it was fun or was until a storm came up and we had to wait for it to blow over on the ship. Thanks for the compliment and many women do serve but I wouldn't have been eligible as I am too flat footed.

Same. Sorry that I don’t buy into all the stories our government says is true, or were you ever aware that this same government is responsible for more than one tragedy to include but not limited to Iraq being blamed by Bush for the 9/11/01 attack when that was actually done by the Shrub administration itself and not by any outsider. That’s a fact.

Ask yourself this: why was Bush 1 so into Obama when the rest of the republican congress wasn’t? Why was Obama’s polices very much the same as Bush’s? Why did the Bush administration allow the Saudi family leave the country without being questioned by the FBI?

Because they are all guilty as hell and most Americans knows it. That’s why.

Lol!! You sound like Trump.

Weepy says he did.

I don't disagree it was a viable target. Jail setting? Anything is possible I guess. I know the contractors were there to recover Gaddafi's shoulder fired surface to air missiles.
So the story goes. Woods was  SEAL qualified medic working at the CIA base as a contractor, Doherty was a SEAL qualified member of the CIA's global response team stationed in Tripoli who hopped a plane to Benghazi and was killed shortly after arriving at the CIA base. Neither man had anything to do with the State Department or Hillary Clinton.

Scott Strickland was never called to testify in Trey Gowdy's bogus hearings but he did testify at the trial of Abu Khattala the so called mastermind of the Benghazi attacks. Interesting stuff although Rush/FOX skipped it as it didn't fit into their Benghazi playbook.

Khattala was acquitted on the murder charges but convicted of terrorism and sentenced to 22 years.

That is true. It's expensive. It became expensive when the government started to monkey with it starting with Medicare. It was still pretty reasonable when I left the service. I'm not sure, but it became more expensive with the government's involvement with HMOs.

Personally, I don't have a problem with a government option kept at a state level and left to the states to modify plans as needed. Simply expand Medicaid.

Well not exactly because it wasn't exactly Stevens doing the requesting and it wasn't exactly Hillary Clinton handling the requests. So while Politifact rates that "requests were made" as true, it explained that many of the requests were made before Stevens was ambassador some even before Hillary was secretary of state.

Left out of the Trey Gowdy hearings were these facts.

The facts of what happened and why were clearly established by the Accountability Review Board:

Ambassador Chris Stevens was responsible for the decision to travel to Benghazi. In-country travel is solely at the discretion of the ambassador, and he did not need to seek Department of State approval.

He traveled to Benghazi knowing full well that his physical and personnel security concerns had not been adequately addressed by the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security. Despite the security concerns, he traveled nonetheless due to personnel rotation in Benghazi and to re-establish contacts in Benghazi.

He left Benghazi on November 17, 2011, and returned as ambassador to Libya on September 10, 2012. In that intervening time, and in the six months prior to September 11, there had been 20 security incidents. Despite a CIA presence in Benghazi, Stevens was unaware of the evolution of the militias that subsequently killed him and his colleagues.

  Government Health Insurance System (GKV) Most German residents (approx. 70 million people) are members of the government health system. If your gross salary is less than 60,750 Euros per year, or 5,063 Euros per month in 2019 then membership in the GKV is mandatory.

I think you're right. I believe there are some options other than income for private insurance.

However, so we don't go off on a KFC marathon, Germany is different from other countries in the EU like Texas is different from Massachusetts in the US. My position is it should be kept at a state level leaving the states to develop better care through their own devices.

Medicaid Funding. Medicaid is funded by the federal government and each state. The federal government pays states for a share of program expenditures, called the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP). Each state has its own FMAP based on per capita income and other criteria.
So medicaid is funded by both.

Trump's racism on TV is intentional, to get the news channels off the other news, such as Epstein, Mueller, etc. Everyone  already knew he was racist awhile back, that is no shock but that was Trump's strategy and uses it to create anarchy.

Only debacle I see is Trump and the GOP spinning out of control trying to defend a racist statement made by Trump and pretend to be "victims" of it all, many conspiricies are being floated..

Maybe Twitler did it to take news off Epstein and Mueller, I dunno. Kinda makes him look like he is out of it., esp mentally.. **** Licker makes more sense than him and he makes no sense at all either...

You remind me of a poster named "Earl" on Topix. He would repeat the talking points pretending to know what he was talking about, he was a sheeple, just like you showed here and elsewhere. We got along in common ground issues but he was quite a character and you meet that criteria on here. You and he are around similar age too....
Earl was a troll and liar as were his sidekicks on the Tennessee/Southern forums and finally on the thread myself and Teaman posted on, the largest thread on topix and perhaps the history of the internet with over one and a half million posts and around a half million more that were deleted.

I suspect that Earl, Julia and more were all the same person.

Earl did use women names but his giveaway is he posted as a gray box with a Charlottesville, Va IP most of the time. Is this the same one you encountered? Claimed to be in his 70s and his behavior is exactly how you described...He hung around WV boards as if he lived in the area...

Be nice if it could be explained away in that manner however there are also a number of more educated trumpanzees.
What we have here is a cult. This cult primed it's members with 30 years of right wing propaganda via fox news and AM radio.

I know a former mayor of my town and his wife, a respected older couple with a disabled son who is dependent on the social safety net. They have always been moderate republicans up until about 10 years ago when they both took a hard right turn into la-la land. This coincided with their retirements and their new habit of watching fox news near every waking hour of the day.

Not long ago my elderly mother, a stanch Democrat and retired professional, spent a day at their home and phoned me that evening to ask if she should be fortifying her doors against the migrant caravan. --We live in WV.  Just six hours of fox news playing in the back round did that, made her worry that a tidal wave of Central Americans was going to sweep over the USA like a zombie horde.

It's a cult, it programs it's victims just as any other evil cult does.

The Villages began as a doublewide park called Orange Blossom Gardens, it was located on beautiful pastureland
 in the Lady Lake FL area just to the SE of Ocala Fl. It was purchased by the Morse family and began to take off during the early 80's after the original plaza was completed and the golfing operation expanded. It was always political but the present fervor has its roots in cable TV, talk radio and the Morse family's devotion to Republican politics. It was Gary Morse's Cayman registered yacht that caused grief for Mitt Romney during the 2012 election season.

Since Obama was elected the political tone at The Villages and nearby retirement developments has become almost unbearable, nowhere is free from one way political discussion, right leaning to far right politics permeates the air. the Villagers have become known as haters.

A second Morse Family community has been started to the South of The Villages near the FL Turnpike and Clermont FL. It's being said that this one will attempt to be apolitical__the locals aren't buying that.

That awkward moment when thoughtful readers come to the realization that it was the supreme court that allowed the passage of this law (5-4), that all the more liberal leaning judges (Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan) voted for the current  iteration that this article is condemning.

A law supposedly so bad, that according to this article there was a collective "sigh" that drowned out "that one part of the courts decision". So the writer of this articles clearly indicates  nobody supporting it really cared what was in the law or what was feasibly passable that they pushed long as they (democrats)  got a "victory" for, you know .... that one president (the black one).

But somehow, it's those (dirty racist) Republican Governors that were not bought and paid for, and I do quote; these governors violated one of the fundamental tenets of state government that date back to the dawn of human greed: they refused FREE MONEY! The writer of this article, Charles P. Pierce, actually writes out in full disclosure that these Governors are not bought and paid for (as quoted above), that they were beholden to their constituents wishes that put them in office and not to the misrepresented "FREE MONEY!" ACA.

 ...If only we had more politicians like that.





Also,

You state this article is a "pretty well researched article". So well infact that they hide the information supporting it behind what looks to be a pay-wall (subscription).  I usually don't mind looking further into what somebody claims, but there is a limit to my searching for information when it's the claimants position to do so -Which so far hasn't been supported. All we have so far is an excerpt of  data  that could be very easily shown out of context to push an agenda.

What is your take on Lakeland? I read about that place and seen pictures and most reviews and various forum comments put the city in a good light and a nice place to visit but I had been there on three occasions in 1989-90 and around 2000 but my 1989 expierience with that place was it was the most ghetto looking of cities of its size in Florida and looked heavy industrial in that day. I guess cities can change but that place was no tourist destination back in that day...

Eustis is in Lake County FL and the Lake commissioners just voted 3/2 to accept a controversial confederate statue of a guy who likely never set foot in Lake County.  The county's mayors are real pizzed off about the decision.

Lake has a long history of racism at it's finest.  https://psmag.com/social-justice/the-most-dangerous-place-to-be-black-64206

Lakeland (Polk County) remains commercial/industrial, that area is epicenter to Florida's vast agricultural shipping and inbound warehousing operations. There are some very nice areas though, plenty of lakes, golf and Joker Marchant Stadium where every day is a good day win or lose.

I have been to Eustis but that was 30 years ago, I am sure it is a different place today as well. Been to Leesburg, Ocala and those places as well.. The Villages existed back then but it was nothing. Deltona seems to be a similar place and it was very little back 30 years ago and it blew up big time in population...
Deltona has never become more than a bedroom community and while it's population is approaching 100,000 there is very little commercial in that town which by the way has a lot of problems with it's government/utilities. Deltona is over 30% Hispanic, mostly Puerto Ricans.

4 out of 5 people in that picture are smiling. Only Trump and Melania are targeted, however, the 2 non-white's that are smiling don't have any "anger" levied against them.

Seems biased and racially motivated towards whites, considering the man standing next to Trump is the baby's uncle and is also smiling. From the article; The baby’s uncle, standing next to Donald Trump...

And everyone still wonder's why these shooters believe their is an anti-white agenda.

The logical answer here is, they are smiling because they're having their picture taken, and they aren't in the public eye as Trump is. Give me a starting point on their beliefs, or polical affiliation then I have a target to work with.

Trump says students returning to school have 'nothing to worry about' after the recent mass shootings

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Friday assured students going back to school that they “have nothing to worry about,” as the nation continues to reel after numerous mass shootings over the weekend and increased false alarms and paranoia of the next shooting.

While speaking with reporters outside the White House, Trump was asked what his message is to students who are nervous about going back to school as the new school year starts.

“Go and really study hard and someday you’ll grow up and maybe be president of the United States or do something else that’s fantastic,” Trump said. “They have nothing to fear, they have nothing to worry about.”

Geez, the first liar in the How "Trump Met Melania Saga" doesn't stand a chance.

Trump was still very much married to Marla Maples (they didn’t divorce until 1999).

“But if you’ll recall, Melania arrives (in the U.S.) in 1995 and around the end of that year, or early ’96, is when she poses for the infamous lesbian soft core **** photographs that were leaked to the New York Post,” Burleigh explained. “But the photographer for that shoot, Ale de Basseville, a French guy, is on the record with a 100% backing that he and everyone at that shoot knew (of a relationship between the two in 1996) because she told them that her boyfriend was Donald Trump and he remembers it specifically. He thought that it would increase the value of his photoshoot to this French magazine that was going to print them. And he wanted to tell the editor, you know, this is Donald’s girlfriend and it was ’96. He says that Paolo Zampolli said to him, ‘you can’t do that because he’s still not untethered from his wife.'”

Paolo Zampolli claims to have introduced Melania to Donald at a Victoria Secret fashion show in NYC.  Epstein was also in attendance.

I have been to Winter Haven and Haines City, which also once had spring training facilities nearby back when I lived down there. Very familiar with Polk County, at least the Polk of 1989.  I was in Kissimmee, next to Disney World, even worked there briefly in 1989. I could not really handle life down there at the time with no vehicle of my own, the lightning was scary. One time caddied with my brother and lightning would fly and we had no shelter nearby...

Is 4 corners where the four counties touch? There was nothing there in 1989.

So, speaking of baseball, I'm sitting here watching the Little League World Series teams from Mexico and Venezuela face off in Willimsport PA. Yes, that Venezuela, which this year won it's regional title and represents Latin America.

Amazing eh?  That a bunch of little kids and their parents could slip out of Venezuela and find their way all the way to

I went to Niagara Falls once and the PA portion of the trip was like traveling to a funeral, WV looked much prettier in comparison, WV takes better care of the scenery around the interstates, vast majority of overpasses in PA was rusty and youhad to go a couple miles off the interstate to get to food and gas etc with one or two exceptions..

NY has similar landscape in the areas near PA...

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the August jobs report (all times local):

 Today 8:30 a.m.

U.S. employers added a modest 130,000 jobs in August, a sign that global economic weakness and President Donald Trump’s trade war with China may have begun to slow hiring.

The job gains were lifted by the temporary hiring of 25,000 government workers for the 2020 Census. Excluding all government hiring, businesses added 96,000 jobs, the fewest since May.

The Labor Department says the unemployment rate remained 3.7%, near the lowest level in five decades, for the third straight month. The rate was flat for a positive reason: Americans surged into the workforce, lifting the proportion of adults working or looking for work to its highest level since February.

They are indeed scared of Trump looking like a buffoon, he already is one. I bet Trump will avoid debating the Democrat in the general as well, for same reason.

What's dumb is only being able to say a post is dumb while wholly lacking the ability to point out why.  If you think it's in America's interest and its citizens interests (.regardless is their race) to function as a giant refugee camp for never-ending Latin American poverty hordes fleeing the ever expanding slums they make, you should be able to explain why, shouldn't you?

I'm pretty sure Latin American nations wouldn't appreciate it america was constantly sending them never-ending hordes of homeless people by the millions annually to care and provide for.  Actually Mexicans don't appreciate all the folks from Central America flooding their country.  People are usually generous until that generosity gets taken advantage of.  Almost none of these people qualify for asylum and they know it, but they don't care.  The system is so backlogged for legitimate asylum seekers that this arrangement is unfair to them.  It's also unfair to all the people who come to America legally. It's also unfair to Americans who are stuck paying for poverty hordes to continuously flood America in violation of our laws.

If one feels otherwise and feels they are informed, use your words like a big boy or girl and explain why.  It's okay.  I might be brutally honest and speak uncomfortable truths, but I don't bite.

Rules for asylum:

First, an asylum applicant must establish that he or she fears persecution from their Government in their home country. Second, the applicant must prove that he or she would be persecuted on account of one of five protected grounds: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or particular social group

Seeming out better economic opportunities doesn't qualify.

Fleeing gang violence doesn't qualify.

Your husband beating you, doesn't qualify.

These people are abusing the system and they know it.  They are coached on what to say and they have known for a long time that if they come they will not be granted asylum, but will still be released into America where they place massive burdens on American society because they are so impoverished and uneducated .. they will also never go back.  America isn't a giant refugee camp for them and this isn't the 1800s where we needed cheap labor to flood America, had a lot of land that needed to be settle and could be bought cheaply, had railroads to build, factors to build and man, and basically a huge land mass that needed to be developed.

We have much less of a need for masses of poverty to flood our nation and its to our detriment to do so.  To the extent we need cheap labor we, Americans, should decide exactly how much we need and it should be controlled and regulated, not a free for all where Latin Americans control it.

These are all common sense things I share.

That's still probably not good enough for the left.  As soon as folks give them an inch and give up some gun rights, they'll demand a mile.  We went from them demanding gay marriage and right after that was granted the next day overnight they demanded dudes who wish they were girls to play in girls sports and to shower with them.  Now if you don't support that you are just as much of a bigot as people who didn't used to support gay marriage according to liberals. 

Remember when it used to be LBG, then as they got more rights that wasn't good enough and more "oppressed" "victims" started crawling out of the woodwork demand tonget their way and it became LBGQT and as transsexuals got their way now it's LGBTQQIAAP and who the eff knows when the letter ending will stop.


L - lesbian: a woman who is attracted to other women
G - gay: a man who is attracted to other men or broadly people who identify as homosexual
B - bisexual: a person who is attracted to both men and women
T - transgender: a person whose gender identity is different from the sex the doctor put down on their birth certificate
Q - queer: originally used as a hate term, some people want to reclaim the word, while others find it offensive. It can be a political statement, suggest that someone doesn't want to identify with "binaries" (e.g. male v female, homosexual v straight) or that they don't want to label themselves only by their sexual activity
Q - questioning: a person who is still exploring their sexuality or gender identity
I - intersex: a person whose body is not definitively male or female. This may be because they have chromosomes which are not XX or XY or because their genitals or reproductive organs are not considered "standard"
A - allies: a person who identifies as straight but supports people in the LGBTQQIAAP community
A - asexual: a person who is not attracted in a sexual way to people of any gender
P - pansexual: a person whose sexual attraction is not based on gender and may themselves be fluid when it comes to gender or sexual identity

This has been going around a lot:

National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order. The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.
Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms. One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.” Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange. Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, anrmed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large. And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.

I like this O'Rourke much better than the fake Mexican wannabe Robert O'Rourke:

"At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats."

P.J. O'Rourke

Like a spoiled child, liberals are never happy even when they get their way.  They immediately start thinking of what they can ask for next.  Give them an inch and they immediately demand a mile.  Don't give them an inch.  It still won't make them satisfied.  It still won't make them tolerate you.  The only thing that will make them tolerate you is if you keep giving in to their increasing demands.  It happens in so many contexts.  It's not just guns. 

Civil rights ... gay rights ... guns ... welfare programs ... every single time you agree with them it's just used as a launch pad by liberals to demand even more.  Civics rights movement ... we made a lot of progress and now they complain about "micro-aggressions" and having gifted programs in NYC that minorities can't get into ... so now they want to get rid of it in NYC so that everyone gets dumbed down to the lowest common denominator,

The wannabe fake Mexican O'Rourke is all for confiscation of guns but  his little chicken shyte azz isn't gonna be the one doing the actual confiscation.  Nope fake Mexican O'Rourke will hide behind people with guns and use them to forcibly take  peoples guns.  Liberals seek complete control of the government ... its wby after hundreds of years the electoral college is such a problem for them now ... and they seek to have it so once they control the government they are the only ones with guns and they will use them if people don't comply with their ever increasing demands to shrink individual liberty.  That's what this is all about.  They can't do what they want to ultimately do to America with an armed citizenry.  They know it doesn't end well for them cause people will not tolerate their increasing tyranny and they will pay dearly for this and this scares them, because more and more control and more and more demands is the only thing that will satiate their desires and such satiation is only temporary and lasts a split second until they think of a new list of demands.

Logistically, how do they confiscated guns?  They are gonna knock on someone's door and say we want your AR-15.  I would just say oh, I lost that. As one guy on yahoo posted it fell in a lake and so did my 10,000 rounds of ammunition, lol..  What are they gonna do go get search warrants and start tearing apart people's homes.  Fake Mexican O'Rourke is too dopey to think of such practicalities.  Are they gonna dig up my yard? 

If it ever gets close to banning AR-15s I'm gonna buy a bunch of them before the ban kicks in and a bunch of ammo and a bunch of other guns ... cause I know it won't stop there and that's just the beginning ... and I don't even own any guns.  So  practical effect of banning guns will be just to make more people buy them and become even more radical. 

Remember every single patriot in the revolutionary war and all the founding fathers would be right wing extremists by the standards of liberals today.  They absolutely despise the principals of our nation's founding fathers.  They don't like freedom because freedom allows other people to make different choices than them and doesn't allow them to use other people for their purposes and there is nothing more they can't stand more than that.  They would have all fought for the crown.  After the war a lot of them were kicked out of the country.  Lost all their land and all their possessions.

Like I said if we give an inch, it's just a launch pad for liberals to demand a mile.  What's worse if you then don't agree to give them the mile, you are just as awful according to liberals as you were before you agreed to give them an inch.  I could give you example after example after example of this in many different contexts until the cows come home.  When it comes to something as fundamental as the right to self defense and bear arms, I'm not willing to give an inch only for that not to be good enough as soon as I agree to it..  I know where it leads to.  If you don't like it blame all the liberal activists.  I am on to them.  They don't StFU once they get their way.  They scream louder and for more and more. 

What's the point of agreeing to it when you will just immediately turn around and demand more.  Also additional laws called for would have prevented almost none of the mass shootings.  So it's not gonna have much of an effect and will just lead to ever increasing demands.

You know it will play out like this and what I am saying is not without merit.

If it ever gets close to banning AR-15s I'm gonna buy a bunch of them before the ban kicks in and a bunch of ammo and a bunch of other guns ... cause I know it won't stop there and that's just the beginning ... and I don't even own any guns.  So  practical effect of banning guns will be just to make more people buy them and become even more radical. 

I mentioned the cobra effect the other day.  ^^ this is it in action.  Democrats are too knee jerk to think that far ahead, tho.

Like I said if we give an inch, it's just a launch pad for liberals to demand a mile.  What's worse if you then don't agree to give them the mile, you are just as awful according to liberals as you were before you agreed to give them an inch.  I could give you example after example after example of this in many different contexts until the cows come home.  When it comes to something as fundamental as the right to self defense and bear arms, I'm not willing to give an inch only for that not to be good enough as soon as I agree to it..  I know where it leads to.  If you don't like it blame all the liberal activists.  I am on to them.  They don't StFU once they get their way.  They scream louder and for more and more. 

What's the point of agreeing to it when you will just immediately turn around and demand more.  Also additional laws called for would have prevented almost none of the mass shootings.  So it's not gonna have much of an effect and will just lead to ever increasing demands.

No one has defined what a loophole is.

If we agree to ban AR-15s, they will demand other guns be banned ... next thing you know they will demand to ban a glock 19 handgun cause it holds 10 bullets and a person with one or a couple of those and a few extra clips can do a lot of damage.  Then once they ban that and people start using handguns with less bullets, they will demand those are banned.  Also just like they say the only purpose of an AR 15 is to kill people ... the only purpose of a handgun is to shoot people if need be.  You don't go hunting with a handgun.  What else you gonna use it for but to shoot someone if you have to?

Then once they ban all guns, you'd think they would be happy and say yay we won the good fight and have a beer to celebrate and then retire from whining about the need to ban things, but I have bad news for you, that still won't be good enough.  In England stores have banned the sale of knives because of stabbings.  It never ends I tell you.

But if this proposed social credit system on purchasing guns goes through,, if they check any of my posts (opinions) about certain issues around the world, they might say I can't get one.

I would support it too if I didn't know that ultimately it will just be used as a launchpad for more and more restrictions, like this:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonald_v._City_of_Chicago

Was only over turned because of the Supreme Court, and trust me they will keep pushing the envelope to see how close they can get to a complete ban.  I highly doubt many people in that poll of yours who believe in the right to bear arms have thought this far ahead.

I'd be for better mental health screening.  I am for red flag laws connected to mental health and provided it isn't based on one's views and whether liberals think you are an extremist or not.  I don't see such a slippery slope there if we do a better job keeping guns out of certified mentally unstable people. 

I personally don't think a lot of people should own guns ... I feel a lot more shouldn't than would be screened out by mental health reasons, but to me it's an important enough right that this trumps my feelings about this.  I don't really like guns.  That's why I don't own any.  To me the risks aren't worth ownership and I don't really feel I need one for self defense.

I even told my brother he shouldn't own a gun cause he's not very good at controlling his temper  when he gets angry.  I will vent verbally when I am really angry.  He starts breaking and throwing **** and  has done worse than that.  I told my whole family he shouldn't have his gun at my parents house and I told him that and said I don't want to be around him with a gun.   If you have self control issues, you shouldn't own a gun, IMO.  I don't know how you legislate that though without it going too far.

There are adverse costs to the right to bear arms, for sure, but it's a very important right I feel.  A lack of an ability of folks to defend themselves has caused more genocide and death than all mass shootings ever by a factor of a hundreds of thousands.  Who knows what kind of government we will have in 200 years and how it will behave.  Who knows what the world will look like.  I think people should have the right to overthrow their government when it goes too far ... that may not be possible without the right to bear arms.

I'm okay with holding people liable for not securing their weapons and taking reasonable precautions to keep them out of the hands of people who should not have them.  I think the mother of the Sandy Hook shooter should have been charged had she not been killed too.  To me it's not reasonable to allow an child like that free access to guns. She should have had a secured combination lock so he couldn't get ahold of them.  She would still be alive and so would all those kids.

I am also okay with closing any loop holes that allow private sales without a background check.  Again that is mental health and a violent felon and such shouldn't own guns.

There are things we can do that may help, but bans are a slippery slope that will ultimately imperil the right to bear arms.

We all know that politicians will NEVER enact anything on their own to impose term limits.

The only way we may ever get term limits is for the citizenry to rally en mass for term limits and vote on them...
Until that happens, the whole notion of term limits is nothing more than a talking point....
We won't ever get term limits in order to have that happen, we would have to be allowed to vote on it and the politicians won't let that happen.

Dewey was expected to win by a landslide over Truman in 1948 but the final polling was done in September that year Dewey sat on his ass while Truman went cross country to the end. Anytime before 1952 needs an asterisk beside it...

The president threatened to “override” governors who defy him, but it was unclear what authority he has to do so...."

First off, this buffoon has no authority what so ever to "override" governors. Secondly, Trump claiming to be a Christian is as laughable as when Saddam Hussein pretended to be a devout muslim. Both are dim-witted despots, both appointed their creepy retard sons to high positions even though they were imbeciles. The difference is, Saddam actually had the ability to run his country.

Old Topix could have been the best social media site ever.

But it was non-stop trolling, sock puppets, spoofing other people's screen names.  It ruined it for everyone. I will never understand what motivates a person to be a troll. It's not like they are children. They are grown  men (usually).

I don't know who's reporting who. There's a lot of stuff that is posted that we sometimes have to wade through. I think the block function is great. I used it for a while and it helped. Whoever is being offended should block the posts. We all have to exist amongst objectionable stuff. Right now I'm dealing with this IRL. I know 3 people that were killed at King Soopers. We have to live our lives knowing there are insane people out there that can have access to guns that go in and shoot innocent people in a grocery store. When we come to this forum we know there's going to be stuff we don't agree with - just how it is.

Ultimately, it's your forum Pete and you get to do what you want to do.

I don't know who's reporting who. There's a lot of stuff that is posted that we sometimes have to wade through. I think the block function is great. I used it for a while and it helped. Whoever is being offended should block the posts. We all have to exist amongst objectionable stuff. Right now I'm dealing with this IRL. I know 3 people that were killed at King Soopers. We have to live our lives knowing there are insane people out there that can have access to guns that go in and shoot innocent people in a grocery store. When we come to this forum we know there's going to be stuff we don't agree with - just how it is.

Ultimately, it's your forum Pete and you get to do what you want to do.

Or, just don't read and/or respond to posters that you find to be objectionable. I am too lazy to block, I just skip over the post when I see the name.

I didn't notice any posts today that necessitated locking the thread down. But that's over my pay grade.

No sense in wasting my time with fools.  You can't teach them, can't reach them, and can't shame them.  I tried for years and all that does is feed them.
