How To Live Under An Unqualified President by John Piper

#2411

I joined FaceBook a couple of weeks ago, just for the purpose of having access to ONE friend - MavPhil.
Now this is a true story - a week after I joined - and I had written nothing political or controversial on my page - I mentioned that I hoped ‘Zuck and the boyz’ wouldn’t shut me down if I mentioned my conservative leanings.
Later that night, my FB account was eliminated. I have been unable to find out why.
I THINK it’s because the MavPhil site is very political (pro-American), and I linked to it and mentioned FB censorship.
In any case, quite a coincidence in timing - or not.

They do have a complaint department, Dave. You just need to take a number.

#2413

Been there, done that. No joy!!
I’m thinking of hiring a couple of Z mercenaries to raid the joint and take hostages. Would give me some leverage. :slight_smile:

Vote with your feet (or fingers) and use something else.

#2415

Yep the only solution, I reckon.
I’ll probably use my fingers…

“I’m a capitalist. I don’t see how we’re able to meet any of the fundamental challenges that we have as a country without, in part, harnessing the power of the market,” ~~ Beto O’Rourke

#2417

The thing with the Dems is they are whatever gets them elected. They were for a barrier on the border when it suited them politically, Gillebrand supported the 2nd amendment when it suited her, & if Beto has to change to a socialist to get elected, he will be a socialist. In Texas Beto had to be a capitalist, we will see how long this sticks on the national stage running against Dem Socialists?

#2418

Whatever, Beto has always been a Capitalist and has worked with Republicans. He even receive a large donation from a Republican organization. His voting has always been moderate as well. People think he’s a hidden republican. The sociopathic Trump followers lie to support their Social Darwinism.

My twin passions in life have been the American free enterprise system and the U.S. Constitution. ~~ Texas Sen. Ted Cruz

Randy,

It’s not the same as the Social Credit of China. It’s kind of like the Universal Basic Income of the Democratic presidential candidate Yang. They both speak of how machines and robots are taking over jobs. This is why malls, bookstores, etc. are shutting down. It’s because of computers and companies like Amazon who rely on machines or robots to do the work. In social credit everybody has a beneficial ownership in the real capital (machines and equipment) and are paid a national dividend on that capital. There’s a distribution that involves the beneficial ownership of real capital. The national dividend has a financing where a national credit office through monetary policy adjustments create the money and distribute it to everybody. The national dividend is a function of the economy’s productivity. Debt free credit is produced by filling the gap with state creations of debt free credit sufficient to fill the gap to avoid inflation. Since the gap can’t be filled unless the goods and services are being distributed to consumers the money needs to be injected to consumers directly or on their behalf.

NZ is banning assault rifles. I wish American politicians responded to mass shootings with more than prayers.

#2422

“At publishing time, the nation had continued to blame gun owners for any shooting that occurs in the United States, while absolving Planned Parenthood of killing millions upon millions of babies.”

#2423

Firearms are only a problem when in the hands of crazy people. The American way of an armed people, is the very vehicle that stops the spread of socialism, and or communism/Marxism.

Europeans don’t like it, but the fact remains that we here in the USA are so much more FREE than the rest of the world. And the fact is, is that we, the public, are a force to recon with. It is a good thing.:wink:

Cool! Music, Maestro!

Part of the problem is that people are presumed to not be crazy when they purchase guns. So often it’s not known who is crazy until there are dead bodies on the ground. It’s not a risk worth taking IMO.

#2426

That’s not the point qaz. The bad guys who have the guns don’t go through screening AT ALL. Do YOU want to be at their mercy - say, MS-13?

How To Live Under A Vindicated President?

“A cry is heard in Ramah–deep anguish and bitter weeping” (Jer 31 15).

The crying of Democrats can be heard all the way up here in Canada now that the US President has been exonerated from the crime of plotting with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

Now we need to hear the anguish of Liberals up here when Prime Minister Trudeau is charged and found guilty of real collusion.

Don’t worry, Norm - I’ve already heard rumors of Mueller being in cahoots with the Russian!!.
They will stop at nothing.

Schiff and those boys - haters. Just haters.
I hope Barr goes after the real lawbreakers.
I’m encouraged, but there will be a lot of made-up dirt yet to come.

They also will not admit ONE thing Trump has done right.

#2429

I think my confidence that Robert Mueller has integrity and would reach a fair conclusion has been vindicated. He deserves our gratitude.

From Motus Mentis:
Well! The Mueller report’s in, and has confirmed that this whole Russia business was nothing but a frame-up all along. Thanks so very much, news media and Democrat saboteurs (but I repeat myself) for hijacking the nation’s public affairs for two long years of round-the-clock bile, slander, and lies.

This will end nothing, of course: Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler will continue to abuse the awesome power of the State in hope of finding something — anything — they can use to hamper and attack the President. Rest assured they will use their subpoena power to browbeat and intimidate scores of American citizens as they search in desperation for a crime. Maxine Waters and her lynch mob in Congress will continue to slaver for impeachment.

There will be no apology forthcoming from the media; no contrition at all for their years of false accusations, or for creating a toxic atmosphere in Washington that made impossible any hope of diplomacy with Russia. In doing this they have caused incalculable damage to American foreign policy and to global strategic security.

Will there be punishment for those who mounted this fraud in the first place? For the people who abused the nation’s most powerful intelligence and law-enforcement agencies in the hope of overturning an election, and destroying a Presidency? For those who obtained multiple secret-court surveillance orders on false pretenses in order to spy on political opponents? For those conspirators who put their thumbs on the scale of justice to keep their own party’s candidate out of jail? Don’t hold your breath.

The insanity of the American Left will only intensify now, in their rage and frustration.

It’s going to be a long, hot, summer.
