Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Lord Acton


Quote II

Power does not corrupt. Fear corrupts... perhaps the fear of a loss of power. John Steinbeck


Quote III

Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Oscar Wilde


Quote IV

Democratic socialism means that we must reform a political system that is corrupt, that we must create an economy that works for all, not just the very wealthy. Bernie Sanders

Sanders translation = Tax, Tax & Tax. Spend, spend & spend.

Is it time for Conservatives to create an alternate culture?

The left, of course, dismisses complaints of blacklisting and bias as paranoid whining, but they are very real indeed.

The publishing world is not exempt from this state of affairs. When conservative author Dinesh D’Souza’s new book The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left appeared at Number seven on The New York Times bestseller list, despite actually having outsold all fourteen of its competitors on the list, D’Souza called out the Times on Twitter: “In what alternative universe do Jeff Flake’s 7,383 book sales for this week (BookScan data) top mine at 11,651? Thanks @nytimes fake list!”

But it is for the Children!!! Forced blood/urine testing for a fucking beer.

Randolf, NJ — Parents of high school teenagers were outraged this weekend after dozens of their children were ordered to undergo forced blood and alcohol tests because officials found a beer can under the stadium during a football game. As parents tried to refuse the tests, they were told their children would be suspended for noncompliance.

Naturally, school officials are claiming that the forced blood and urine samples, taken under the threat of suspension, were done in the name of child safety.

According to a letter from Randolph Superintendent Jennifer Fano, the school is charged with enforcing the policy of mass drug tests for suspicion of drug or alcohol use among students.

The law requires that we send students out to be tested when it appears that they may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Given the events in question, the students in this area of the stadium were brought in to the school, separated into classrooms, and parents were contacted to pick their child up and have them screened. District policy and regulation states that failure to comply with a screening is deemed a positive test result and will result in a suspension from school.

Key sentence, .....when it appears that they may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.


Kind of reminds me of Operation Intercept.

The real spouse can take half your shit. The artificial one can kill you. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

A cybersecurity scientist has issued a bizarre warning that sex robots could one day rise up and kill their owners if hackers can get inside their heads.

Last month, tech billionaire Elon Musk claimed that artificial intelligence could take over the planet, and he’s not the only one concerned about the dangers of killer tech.

Fischer Black.

The effects of noise on the world, and on our views of the world, are profound. Noise in the sense of a large number of small events is often a causal factor much more powerful than a small number of large events can be. Noise makes trading in financial markets possible, and thus allows us to observe prices for financial assets. Noise causes markets to be somewhat inefficient, but often prevents us from taking advantage of inefficiencies. Noise in the form of uncertainty about future tastes and technology by sector causes business cycles, and makes them highly resistant to improvement through government intervention. Noise in the form of expectations that need not follow rational rules causes inflation to be what it is, at least in the absence of a gold standard or fixed exchange rates. Noise in the form of uncertainty about what relative prices would be with other exchange rates makes us think incorrectly that changes in exchange rates or inflation rates cause changes in trade or investment flows or economic activity. Most generally, noise makes it very difficult to test either practical or academic theories about the way that financial or economic markets work. We are forced to act largely in the dark. Fischer Black "Noise"

78 Peaches! We finally got power back last night, otherwise we would have stayed to keep the generator running.

I've been cooking for several nights on a Coleman camp stove in our kitchen in the dark, wearing a headlamp.

So sick of it. Can't wait to get back and be free of all the house guests.

Island got slammed with flood water, we just got extremely heavy rain and high winds. Saw something in the back yard I've never seen before: egrets wading after the storm passed.

Exhausted, and dealing with the ATL in-laws tonight.

I liked last season overall but I thought it was odd that absolutely every character was horrified that Mr. Garrison won, even though presumably half of them voted for him. I'm guessing Matt and Trey expected Clinton to win like everyone else and they didn't know how to write a Clinton loss. I don't know if I'll follow this season as closely.

110 Peaches, we have to go back to Savannah in the morning, and driving up I-75 heading south was literally a parking lot from ATL to Macon. Hoping it's thinned out.

It's cool and pleasant here, and my MiL's retirement community didn't suffer any damage at all.

My Tampa, FL family are okay, as are my Tallahassee family. We're all so very, very blessed.

River St. in Savannah was flooded, which didn't happen with Matthew, and Tybee Island as well. Several friends of ours on our island had neighbors flooded.

I'm about done with hurricanes/tropical storms less than two years apart. God bless those who have suffered horribly.

177 WASHINGTON -- The federal government moved on Wednesday to wipe from its computer systems any software made by a prominent Russian cybersecurity firm, Kaspersky Lab, that is being investigated by the F.B.I. for possible links to Russian security services.

The concerns surrounding Kaspersky, whose software is sold throughout the United States, are longstanding. The F.B.I., aided by American spies, has for years been trying to determine whether Kaspersky's senior executives are working with Russian military and intelligence, according to current and former American officials. The F.B.I. has also been investigating whether Kaspersky software, including its well-regarded antivirus programs, contain back doors that could allow Russian intelligence access into computers on which it is running. The company denies the allegations.

199 Despite repeated statements by Republican political leaders that American elections are rife with illegal voting, credible reports of fraud have been hard to find and convictions rarer still.

That may help explain the unusually heavy penalty imposed on Rosa Maria Ortega, 37, a permanent resident and a mother of four who lives outside Dallas. On Thursday, a Fort Worth judge sentenced her to eight years in prison -- and almost certainly deportation later -- after she voted illegally in elections in 2012 and 2014.

The sentence for Ms. Ortega, who was brought to this country by her mother as an infant, "shows how serious Texas is about keeping its elections secure," Ken Paxton, the Texas attorney general, said in a statement. Her lawyer called it an egregious overreaction, made to score political points, against someone who wrongly believed she was eligible to vote.

I expected him to make deals with the Dems, although I expected the GOP to show a little more conservative backbone (not out of actual belief, but because this is the time to play to their base and build up political capital). The Congressional leadership on the GOP side has fucked things up and forced Trump to look for support from Schumer and Pelosi, because he's now in a power struggle with McConnell and Ryan.

If Trump signs a DACA bill but gets significant concessions that begin *immediately*, I'll be willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

266 Outback, no, I don't think that Trump got one damn thing from the Dems for Dreamers. Because Trump is not going to go after the Dreamers he said so.

There are how many illegals here? 12M? 20M? The
Dreamers are maybe 5% of the illegal population. Why go after the people who are not actually problematic? Who are the most sympathetic?

Trump always said about the wall that it would have a big door in it.

283 noise does not drive business cycles, business cycles are driven by malinvestment due to misinterpreting future demands. This condition is exacerbated by central bank fiscal policy which both hides actual market conditions and encouraging plunging due to easy money.

This causes the "dreaded" (scare quotes intentional) "overheated" (scare quotes intentional) economy which is dealt with by tightening money supply, which cascades down through those malinvestments.

Don't get me started on the various bail outs that have been done to save favored donors, by the way, since that just creates "no loss" situtation and ensures that next business cycle can be larger and the collapse larger.

Noise is actually small fluctuations in the market that allow the savvy trader to buy and sell at profit where no-one else sees and advantage. Smaller traders have an advantage since they tend to be faster in reaction to small fluctuations. Someone who wants to take the guesswork out of the market also wants to take the small competitors out as well.

I'm not the biggest fan of Trump in the world, but he won A LOT of brownie points with me due to his reaction to the Charlottesville riots (he was the only national politician I know of to denounce the efforts to take down Confederate monuments), I'm inclined to give him the benefit of a doubt on this for the time being, especially after that breaking White House statement.

We should have been expecting the current impasse as one of the possibilities. After all, from 2010 to 2016 we marveled at how Republicans kept getting more seats ... and yet everything remained the same. We finally elected an outsider president. Obviously, there was always the possibility that that would not be enough, although the treachery, the gall, the outright backstabbing of the RINO faction is amazing in and of itself. They need to be primaried. Then we'll see what happens.

From 1870 through 1895. This was the time when the very rich were seduced by Marxism, the occult, and Bayer heroin. It's sort of like history did a vault jump over this period into the 20th century.

Hear, hear!

I can't believe Thomas came down on this side. At best, the school should be allowed to ask the parents for permission to drug test them (as the students are, after all, the ultimate responsibility of their parents and it is their parents who have the power to make decisions for their children) but the idea that the school has any sort of right to test any and all (basically) is insane.

Eh ... we see all this drug testing insanity from sports filtering down (and spilling out beyond sports).

Kids would be better served to join non-school teams and be able to dispense with this bullshit.

Let me break this down for you. I've been writing checks to NumbersUSA for 25 years or so. Word up...

Illegals are hard to count-- like trying to measure a live snake, yes?

Most people estimate somewhere north of 15 million wets among us now. How many are so-called Dreamers? Maybe 500000-1 million, tops.

So... PDT "sold us out on DACA," huh?

Well, serious students of the immigration catastrophe are a little more concerned about the 14 mill who ARE NOT Dreamers than the less-than-one-million wets who ARE Dreamers. Questions?

Maybe those of us who are serious-as-metastasizing-lung-cancer about the existential threat posed by illegals are a bit MORE concerned about 1) stopping the continuing influx of this scum, & 2) deporting the 90% of illegals who ARE NOT Dreamers.

Exactly. If you don't like dogs or cats, then don't start a relationship with someone who has a dog or cat. The whole purpose of dating is to find out if you can deal with the person.

If I were dating someone who wanted me to not own a dog, I'd give him the heave ho. The boyfriend, not the dog.

426 Trump has never said he'd deport the DACA folks. The opposite, in fact.
Posted by: Country Boy - official AmbASSador to the CenTexMoMee - Molson labe! at September 13, 2017 10:57 PM (D2vc1)

Trump said specifically in his campaign rallies that he would end DACA(because it is unconstitutional and was going to be struck down by the courts) He also said that the Dreamers were low on his list of priorities to deport, and also said numerous times that he had a "heart " about their situation.

I'm amazed at the number of people who either didn't listen or decided to transpose his comments into their own thinking on the Dreamers.

As of right now, Trump has ended DACA , said he wouldn't enforce deportations regarding dreamers for six months to give Congress time to come up with a workable plan for these people.

The people who have registered with the government under DACA have provided more information as to their status, relatives, arrival, education etc. than the typical green card holder we have in the country today. They are either in school, working or about 900 of them are in the military. Unlike the millions of others who have been allowed to come in as refugees, etc. and are living on welfare, food stamps, etc. with 20 other relatives in public housing such as Somalis.
They are the least of my concerns as far as being here illegally. They also are looking at only getting permanent residency , people screaming about this act like these people are going to be turned into citizens tomorrow.

486 It was a press meme that Trump said he was deporting all immigrants and stopping the immigration of all people from the ME. They made that strawman and then/now yell that he's not doing what they claimed he said he'd do.

He did say he would deport and keep out the "bad guys."

I've been noticing this for quite awhile.

Someday we will really fight against illegal immigration, but not these illegals.

We will cut a really great deal on this later, but right now we have to give the open border Democrats what they want.

Trump was always pro-Dreamer, when he said he wanted to end DACA, he meant he wanted it signed into a real law and not just an Executive Order.

When we defeated Eric Cantor, it was so someday we could have a Republican President take the credit for granting Amnesty to the DREAMERS.

Does that about cover it?

There is nothing as much of a slam-dunk as being able to undo DACA. And the benefits of undoing it and starting strict enforcement on those in it is that illegals will think three times before they start jumpiing at chances to get licenses and other gifts from traitors in the various governments. That benefit, by itself, makes it worth doing all the more.

529 mnw, leaving the merits and substance of the DACA dust-up aside, and focusing on exactly the large immigration items you mention, there is every reason to be very concerned that the WH has not *linked* these issues.

You talk about winnable issues. I'll give you a winnable issue set. Even better, one that exploits the massive political vulnerability of your opponents, indulges the unimpressive humanitarian impulses of the president, and - here's the magic - makes indulging those impulses other than disastrous, as a policy matter.

As a few of us have been saying for quite a while, you "trade" DACA (oh - not a sh***y one, as the usual idiots are crafting, but a very restrictive one, with tricks to compel actual enforcement of said restrictions) for the whole buffet: RAISE, full life-cycle border barrier $, mandatory E-verify, binding appropriations law making "sanctuary" lawlessness unbearable for the insurrectionists, Kate's, AND a fix for the 14th amendment "legislation" by the courts.

Last one might be bargained away, as it's more complicated. First four are essential - without them, DACA - because of context and history - will be even more disastrous than Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty.

So - tactical, but also substantive. And not a hint - even with wide-open opportunities like the Hill liaison's public appearance yesterday - that anything at all is in the works. He didn't want to "bind" the WH. Fundamental misunderstanding of the political dynamics, at the least, in evidence there. Non-public info on WH body language on this is even more discouraging.

Nothing is done, yet. So, no hair on fire. But the lighter fluid can, and matches, are arranged on the table. Close to impossible to believe Trump would squander the unbelievable leverage and potential that circumstances have gifted him here. We'll see.

No, but stating that "I'll revisit it if Congress doesn't pass a DACA law in 6 months" very much is the same as saying "I'll renew DACA in 6 months if they don't get amnesty".

If Trump were smart (he's not), he'd have used DACA as a negotiation asset. Instead he bluffed, then immediately announced that he's bluffing.

Like it or not, some form of DACA will stay. The vast majority of Republican voters are in favor of it. The real question is what we'll get in exchange. Trump's answer? Better media coverage for Trump.

It would be better than the deal Reagan got suckeedr into amnesty now and enforcement in the future-which never happened. Prpblem is if such a deal is struck, our end of the of the bargain will be implemented immediately. The Dems may allow funding and implementation for say a border wall or mandatory e-verify. However, once the amnesty takes place they will have swarms of lawyers and activists descend like a plague and find judges to put a stop to their end of the bargain. But there will be no way to take back the citizenship of the Dreamers. Desm cannot be trusted in any way.

Any deal must have the enforcement mechanism fully in place, functioning and shown to be effective before any sort of amnesty is given. If Trump agrees to anything less he he will get suckered like Reagan.

561 I don't think Trump made a deal with the Dems to poke a stick in Ryan's eye. He did it to save him from himself. Read Schlichters latest. How awesome would spending September arguing about the debt ceiling while holding up relief for Texas be? Especially when the Republicans would cave in the end anyway?

He got the loser headlines off the table for now. Loser headlines Ryan thought would be good to have.

And he made the Dems acknowledge that he's the President. Because you can't make a budget deal with someone who is not the President.

You think I'm a Moby or a troll?

LOL.

If you don't understand the significance of this and what it means then that's your problem. Trump ran on restoring the Rule of Law and defending our sovereignty. This deal is opposite to both and goes further to enshrine in law, eventually, the illegal, un-Constitutional power-grab by Barky (that Barky should have been impeached and convicted for - one of many, for sure).

To call opposition to this "trolling" is really ridiculous. This is a very serious matter and it goes right to the heart of Trump's campaign and what he was elected to do (or not do, in this case).

567 No, but stating that "I'll revisit it if Congress doesn't pass a DACA law in 6 months" very much is the same as saying "I'll renew DACA in 6 months if they don't get amnesty".



If Trump were smart (he's not), he'd have used DACA as a negotiation
asset. Instead he bluffed, then immediately announced that he's
bluffing.



Like it or not, some form of DACA will stay. The vast majority of
Republican voters are in favor of it. The real question is what we'll
get in exchange. Trump's answer? Better media coverage for Trump.

That's how feckless and dishonest they are. In light of that, please explain exactly how Trump is supposed to win on any conservative policy issue?

597 Tammy (and one other above) touch on a key issue - timing and linkage. Even if - currently not a hint it is even a possibility - key immigration action is linked to DACA, this problem will still bedevil us. Amnesty will be pocketed instantly, whereas border barriers, E-verify implementation, fiscal coercion to end "sanctuary" rebellion, etc. by nature will take years. Any limits to amnesty, even to "path to citizenship" provisions, will probably be vulnerable to court challenge (possibly even *reasonable* court challenge, something we're not accustomed to lately, but does exist).

RAISE would be a bit better, as once it's passed, it's the new statutory baseline for immigration policy, no delays (chances for repudiation/non-enforcement).

I raised the concern about no linkage with DACA before the DACA announcement. Nothing is yet done. Just puzzled that said linkage wasn't at least strongly hinted at, up front. Trump tweet the night of announcement could be nothing, but could be very bad. Now, Hill liaison dances to avoid any linkage.

Time will tell. But dismissing concern over this is ignorant, and/or unserious.

Inside waiting was a large, undecorated room with about 40 dudes ahead of us waiting in line. I commented that it would be a good idea idea to arrive at like 6 in the morning, to beat the crowd. My coworker chuckled. I woke up after that. (By the way, I've never had sex in a dream. I always wake up before something happens).

640 Actually, I had dream the other night where a coworker took me to a brothel someplace, I think Nevada. It was in a nondescript building where you had to push on a hidden door to enter, no doorknob. Inside waiting was a large, undecorated room with about 40 dudes ahead of us waiting in line. I commented that it would be a good idea idea to arrive at like 6 in the morning, to beat the crowd. My coworker chuckled. I woke up after that. (By the way, I've never had sex in a dream. I always wake up before something happens).

Man, talk about weird dreams; I rarely remember mine. But this morning I awoke from a dream in which I was attending a car show somewhere, and traveling in a motorhome. And my clothes were in the washing machine, which was on the roof of the motorhome. The washing machine caught fire. I said to myself, "Oh no, can't let my clothes get burned up." So I jumped in the motorhome, accelerated fast in reverse, and then slammed on the brakes. The washing machine tumbled off the roof, and burst open on the ground, extinguishing the fire, and saving my load of laundry.

And some jerk in a Mopar muscle car was ragging on me for coming too close to his car.

644 3rd day post eye surgery today. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Both eyes are healing beautifully, and the visual clarity THIS EARLY is astonishing.

The hash is based on the IP address. The IP address on mobile phones changes all the time. Hell, I think many of those ISP do a form of NAT, too.

Now me, on the cable modem, my IP address stays the same, unless I disconnect for more than an hour.

IP6 should solve all the address exhaustion problems. Charter is supposed to be going native with IP6, but they haven't done it locally yet. But they do have a tunnel, and I've been using that to get IP6 connectivity just to play for a while now.

653 Posted this on a dead thread:

217 My BIL died at 1 pm today. It was peaceful - he just stopped breathing - there was no death rattle or gurgling or anything like that (which I have witnessed with other deaths).

So I was a complete and total mess at work and my boss let me leave. For some reason, I went to the cemetery my parents are buried in and said prayers by their graves, although they never knew him. I wanted to tell Mom and Dad that he, unlike husband #1, had treated their daughter - actually, both daughters, really well.

Then I went to the park. It was an absolutely beautiful day here in SE Wisconsin and so I wanted to be outside, but I didn't want to blubber in public in front of the world. Parks - especially when school is in session - are good places to go when you are heartbroken but don't want to cry on your bed. So I cried all afternoon on a bench overlooking Lake Michigan.

Then I came home and watched baseball. The Crew won tonight. That would have made my BIL very happy.

I already miss him so much. There is a hole in my heart.

From the late 70's to mid 80's my brother had so many encounters with the county sheriffs that eventually he and they knew each other on a first name basis.

Fortunately he finally cleaned up his act. And to this day if he crosses paths with one while out and about, they remember him and exchange pleasantries.

It'd be a little different now, with so many outsiders in the area,
but he came from a family that not only had the majority of the
deputies, and the circuit judge, but also owned one of only two banks in
town, which means they held half the loans/mortgages.



That particular family had amazing people in it, very well loved,
but also big time assholes... and back there, blood is thicker than
water, and they all stuck together.

why?

because the stupid motherfucking idiot who was driving it came into the alley, on a blind corner, at speed, taking his half out of the middle.

then he had the arrogance to yell at me for scaring the crap out of his dumb ass.

678 Hola y'all. Have I missed anything good on the thread 2night? I'm in for a minute, just to see what's up.

And speaking of up, what do I find but this subthread:

Serious Cat #623: (By the way, I've never had sex in a dream. I always wake up before something happens).

Oboy! A topic I can relate to. Orrrrr can I?

About a half-century ago, when I was hardly past puberty, I had a nocturnalgasm. Just once. Don't remember any dream associated with it, just woke up startled... and messy. I think the experience was unsettling enough that my mind decided never to do that again. No matter how I tried!

I have had a dream in the past year or so where I was at a college for some unfathomable reason, in what I guess was my dorm room, and this lovely barely-dressed young lady enters and starts coming on to me, no question. I had to tell her, you're cute, but I'm married.

Proper and moral even in my dreams where opportunities have no real-world consequences. That's a good thing, I guess.

Posted by: Hollowpoint at September 14, 2017 12:51 AM (pX+Iv)

No experience. I wanted to have Lasik for nearsightedness, which has plagued me since childhood, but the doctor at the eye clinic said my corneas were too thin to permit the degree of correction needed.

Of course, I have the age-related problem with close-up vision, now, too. But I apparently have incipient cataracts, so I will be able to get "free" Alberta Health Care cataract surgery, and hopefully have a result similar to Irongrampa. A local friend just had his second eye done, and is well-pleased with the result.

I think the age related loss of close vision is due to loss of motion in the eye muscles, so using Lasik to fix that might result in loss of some distance vision.

They are getting pissy about ad blockers now. That was what prompted me to install a script blocker. Something in Drudge's code started giving me some error screen that connection couldn't be made. It was sneaky, and it was some ad script.

In many cases, you can defeat the ad block detection by selectively blocking the right scripts. It's war of move and counter move.

If the damn ad people wouldn't be so intrusive, taking over the damn system and writing these bloating CPU hogging scripts with their damn ads, I wouldn't care, but when the ads bog down a modern multi core, high GHz machine, it's just getting ridiculous.

700 My own brush with small town corruption isn't anywhere near as dire as what Tammy described, but years ago I had to argue a motion in front of a small town judge in FL. The guy basically threw the rules of civil procedure and established case law out the window to rule in favor of the other side. I found out much later the judge was a client of the firm whose motion he granted and IIRC was buddies with the founding partner. So there you go.

They have to be battered before they're fried.

Seriously, I don't exactly know what motivates people to beat on people just because they can. Parents do it to kids, school bullies do it to smaller kids, spouses/domestic partners do it to each other.

Look, if you want to serve ads to your readers, just insert them into the page as HTML, same as the content. Maybe with a hyperlink to advertiser's site. No flashing gifs, or annoying sounds, just a print ad, like in the funny papers. If you have something to sell that I need, and you support this site, why would I not give you my business?

Do kindly take note of where I'd mentioned that I'd read that series of books in the mid '70s.

My memory may, by now, be faulty.

Should I blame that on the peyote?

Of which, I never partook. Smoked some toke before age 17. Snorted some coke right around the same time.

Quickly realized "fuck this shit", never touched it since.

I'm quite content to sip some bourbon, after the late news and before snooze o' clock.

Yeah, I'm hard core. Uh huh.

Yeah they're all pissy about the ad blockers but its like they're clueless as to why people use them.

Search Amazon for "reading glasses". The first result will be a pair that's very, very thin. I have them- not terribly comfortable, cheap or durable, but they're small enough that you can pocket them without noticing.

I have an older machine. It's a single core x64 thing I built from spare parts, and still have it and use it occasionally. At the time I built it, it was faster than my main machine (which I upgraded twice since, and I'll likely do it again soon. New mo/bo and CPU )

Anyway, without an ad blocker, the browser will slow the thing to a crawl with 100% CPU usage. It will run Win7 x64, but just barely. Even running XP x64, the damn browser would bog it down, all because of the ads.

Your sis's late hubby, was a very, very lucky man. And a very, very GOOD man.

That's a rare confluence, these days.

I hate the cliché's around life and death, these days. But this is one of those rare moments where one "celebrates his life", and SHOULD.

And so, let's do exactly that.

Doesn't have to be within this particular ONT. But please DO write up, the best couple of paragraphs you can, of him, about him and in tribute to him.

And share them with US, on this or the next ONT or two.

Let us together, celebrate his life and times.

I'll go further. Copy the whole celebration thread, and send it on to his widow. I'll predict that she'll be awed by teh ONT love, and freaked out by the ONT's ONT!

But, we're all worth it, here together as one.

about 2 weeks ago, i could read the site and comment with 4 scripts allowed out of (iirc) ~16.

then, suddenly, with the stupid new "re-design" i couldn't comment. out of curiosity, i *temporarily* allowed the other 11, which resulted in a message that i had allowed 15 out of 20mumble... and still couldn't comment.

i temp allowed those, and got ANOTHER message that said i had allowed 20ish out of 30 something, and STILL couldn't comment.

at that point i said "FTS" and went back to 4 scripts. i can comment when i'm dead.

JIm, it would be really hard to sum up his life in a couple of paragraphs. When he was a kid, he didn't like school much and got into a lot of fights.

His parents didn't know what to do with him so they sent him to a very strict Catholic all boys boarding school in Illinois. He said later he dropped out of college after freshmen year because they were repeating the stuff he learned in high school.

My sister says she doesn't know how word got out, but she's been getting messages all day long from old hs classmates of his (from places like Australia and Panama) who say, "When I drove my car into a ditch at 3 in the morning during a snowstorm, he was the one i called because I knew he'd come through for me...."

779 Donna,

Hopefully you're asleep by now, but perhaps you will see this later. I'm sorry about your brother, who loved you and your sister and other family, and who took you to baseball games and who you watched sadly decline and who suffered. This is a prayer we have in our Book of Worship. If we knew each other IRL,r I would pry spontaneously with you over the phone or in person, but this Will have to do right now. I like this prayer so I share it with you:

Eternal God, you shared with his family and friends the life of Donna's brother in law ( Sorry; Don't know his first name) Before he was theirs, he was yours. For all that he has given to them to make them who they are,, and for that of him which lives and grows in each of them, and for his life that in your love will never end, we give you thanks. They will offer him back into your arms. Comfort them in their loneliness, strengthen them in their weakness, and give them courage to face the future unafraid. Draw those who remain in this life closer to one another, make them faithful to serve one another, and give them to know the peace and joy which is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I'm glad he's praying. In the past I've been concerned he's sort of nominally Christian, but I know that he was raised in the faith and at his inauguration used a Bible given to him by his mother at his Confirmation. We are instructed in either 1st or 2nd Timothy (I think it's 2nd Timothy, but I'm having a memory lapse at the moment) to pray for our leaders so that we might live in all peace. Given all the people against him, President Trump and his family as well as that of Micael Pence need all the prayers they can get. I believe in prayer.

As opposed to voting for a losing candidate and getting a Barry Soetoro who disappointed me 100% of the time.

I keep telling people disappointed with Trump to think back to the election. The choice was starkly binary: Trump or Bill Clinton's wife. The People made the right choice, now it's up to us to get Congress to get off their lazy never-Trump asses and actually do the job we sent them to Congress to do. Or we need to primary or vote them out of office and replace them with someone who will do the job we hired them to do.

About the only real thing I'm disappointed with is Jeff Sessions. I expected better from him. It looks like Sessions was a better senator than AG and maybe should resign and go back to the Senate.

She's not a demon. A demon is a fallen angel. Now whether she practices worshipping of the devi or is possessed l I don't know. She might be a sociopath or a malignant narcissist in which case you can indeed pray for her although those conditions are very difficult to treat, but with God all things are possible. God does and has coverted sinners-witness Paul who imprisoned Christians and watched Stephen being stoned, and we are told to pray for our enemies. (I'm approaching this from a Christian perspective. I'f you're not Christian would have to apply your own religious perspective) If anyone needs conversion and healing it would be Hillary. That doesn't mean you can't pray for justice or that she should be held accountable for her actions, but Scripture's pretty clear in my mind that we are to pray for people don't like-that they would have the same thing we want for ourselves-that we would become closer to God and more like Jesus Christ.

Jesus said "wipe the dust off you feet if they won't hear you." You haven't gone to Hillary and shared the Good news with her, have you? Listen, if you do0n't want to pray for her, that is, of course up to you,. I am just saying that this is what Scripture says aWe are supposed to pray for our enemies and bless those who curse us. That's even more intimate that any relationship any of us probably have with Hiillary. since she isn't our enemy directly unless we know her personally and she has personally. Enemies include people around us who drive us crazy and whom we don't like very much in the next house or in our own family Because if we don't pray for our enemies who will? It's very hard to pray for people we don't like. I don't like it myself and that's why we ned to Holy Spirit to help us

However through the course of her career I have witnessed her campaigning in AA churches, I've seen her rapist husband conspicuously brandishing a Bible and recently she trotted out her good buddy the plagiarist Methodist minister. She may have heard the Good News from one of those sources. And surely the congregations she visits to gain votes are praying for their girl. Her actions demonstrate that she has rejected the word of the Lord. I'll stick to praying for her many victims, including the families mourning their Benghazi dead.

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Matthew 5;44

Just telling what Jesus said about praying for enemies. Take it up with Jesus. :^)

Have a good day!

857 Um, yes, he was. We wanted him to make deals with
the scum sucking RINOs who most decidedly are our enemies. Drag 'em
kicking and screaming to the deal-making table, if need be.

No, he was elected to see them driven before us and to cause the lamentations of their women.

858 856 . So then why didn't Jesus just fall to His knees and pray for the moneychangers rather than overturning their tables and whipping them? If the Christian rulers of Europe had simply prayed for their Muslim enemies rather than go to war we'd be wearing burkas now. I will accept your suggestion and take it up with the Lord. He knows I have nothing to hide and nothing to prove. I trust Him implicitly.

859 You're conflating saying "Praying for your enemies" to mean that I was suggesting that we should not call out wrongdoing-which i didn't,,or that i was suggesting pacifism-which i wasn't or saying that people should face justice for wrongdoing-which I didn't say. I said Jesus said "Pray for your enemies" Matthew 5;44. Are you saying he didn't say that, or didn't mean what he said,or that we should only pray for them when they act in ways we like or accept? Respectfully, I don't think that's what Jesus said

860 I'm not conflating anything. I brought up two occasions by which Our Lord demonstrated ,,in word and action, that praying for our enemies isn't always required. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to taking this up with Jesus. ;^)

861 Wait; God tell you that you should not pray for certain people whom you consider your enemies? Please help me; I'm trying to understand this. I can accept that you have only limited amount of time to pray or don't want to pray for certain people and I suppose Hillary is one of them, but is God telling not to pray for them because they're beyond redemption?

862 Are we not supposed to pray for people who have rejected the Lord?
