I am not a fan of the 2 year presidential election cycle, it should be contained in the same year as the election. I do not care about the next election yet, maybe this time a year from now. Still kinda weary from the two year 2016 cycle...

Get ready for the Starbucks Man!

Ironic the Shultz name is associated with peanuts, but his coffee can't be paid with peanuts.

Can't be any worse than what's in office at the moment.

He would be an improvement over the Harris lady who wants to do away with all private health insurance supposedly and have government control everything. The same problem that Venezuela is having with their country they want to force on U.S.

That don't sound good, I guess anything is better than that, I will agree with you on that.

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.

I agree with you. Totally agree!
Biblical men want women as incubators and subservient, or “slaves” to men.
Despicable.

It’s as if they think that women are lesser beings than men when they are equals.
We all have personal freedoms that are granted under the constitution of the United States.
To include women.

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.

BEHOLD !!!

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.

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.

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.




Real legit logic, Der.

The school also has its share of different minorities in it and not just an all white school.
