How To Live Under An Unqualified President by John Piper

As I posted elsewhere - “Elsewhere, I posted an article describing the on-the-record racist statements of Joe Biden, throughout his career. The response I got was like this: “Well Joe has apologized for his latest gaffe. What the REAL issue is - when has Trump EVER apologized for anything?” So - we will overlook what should be a huge issue, an eye-opener, an OMG moment of a man running for a powerful position - and ask an irrelevant question about Trump instead.”

It’s a very relevant question. Biden did something “allegedly” bad. He apologized. Trump did something “allegedly” bad. - many times. Did he apologize? It’s a fair question. Of course, an apology doesn’t erase the original action. :wink:

Exactly, all politicians say and do foolish things, but having an ego that’s unusually unable to ever acknowledge that he has erred, or done anything needing forgiveness, seems the biggest risk.

P.S. And what Bidden said was awful! I’m just glad that he can at least recognize that.

In the midst of a head to head political contest between Biden and Trump, when you lodge a partisan criticism of one side’s awful words, it seems naïve to demand no comparison be raised between these opponents, and how they handle their own crazy statements or deeds, as if comparisons are irrelevant.

My perception is that most participants here acknowledge faults in the Dem candidate’s statements, but when Trump says something abysmal, and never even apologizes for it, the majority here totally fails to acknowledge he does it, and most typically defend whatever he says. I suspect most Americans, just like Randy, are not blind to that double standard.

I second that motion. Americans are not stupid, for the most part. The main problem with Biden (other than he’s NOT Mike Bloomberg), is his age. Folks will be looking to whom, he picks as a female VP. It is very possible, if Biden wins - the VP might have to take over. So far, Trump (for all his faults) - is the better choice in Nov. But that could change if he screws up on either COVID-19 or the economy. :wink:

And I dedicate this AARP video, to President Trump. :crazy_face:

And from Patheos’ Evangelical newsletter. :crazy_face:

I’m basically just trying to point out the following:
Democrats MADE UP ‘crimes’ against Trump , with NO evidence, and we have that on record. This went on for 3 years, and they are threatening another impeachment effort.

Biden has a long record of racist, condescending dissing of black folk. Does your BBC, CNN or other alphabets report that for 3 years? This imo disqualifies the man from running - but he’s the front runner.

Just sayin’ - something’s rotten here.

You’re basically just repeating your three year mantra asserting that no one can dispute that Democrats do everything wrong, and are unusually racist toward black folk, but every critique of Trump is only imaginary. I agree, “Something’s rotten here.”

Bob talking to Dave. Or to summarize this, in simple terms.

“Democrats no good. Republicans good. Trump super good.”

Watch Frankenstein now. He can teach us, how to do this. :crazy_face:

“Leftists deem liquor stores, lottery vendors, and abortion providers “essential services.” They are indeed essential to the destructive leftist agenda: to keep people drunk and stupefied, economically illiterate, and addicted to sex so that they may be more easily controlled. The Orange Man punches back effectively, which is one of a hundred reasons why we support him and will vote for him over Biden, the Dementocrats’ flim-flam man. “Come on, maaan, you ain’t no black dude if you be votin’ for Trump!” (That’s a sense-preserving paraphrase, not a quotation.”
I forgot to mention marijuana dispensaries as “essential services.” Absolutely! Essential to keep people stoned and unaware of the “fundamental transformation of the U. S.” (Obama) into a totalitarian state. If they are ‘essential,’ how did people live without them a few years ago?" - Bill Vallicella

And there are “righties” that view gun shops and cannabis shops - as essential services. Whether left or right, the bottom line is this. :crazy_face:

See, for example: :crazy_face:

And President Trump mentioned he wants to open churches ASAP, as essential services. But did you know that the Uniao Do Vegetal from Brazil, won a supreme court case - to practice Ayahuasca in the US, as a church? And Native Americans won a supreme court case, to practice peyote as a religion. (i.e. American Indian religious freedom act)? And churches like ONAC, Peaceful Mountain Way and Soul Quest, are piggybacking on these decisions. And they also will be classified as essential services.

LOL, At 73, to maintain my faithfulness to the Orange Man, I’ve been resisting overdoing sex :wink:

I had a really bad day, too.

My psychiatrist told me I was going crazy.

I demanded, “I want a second opinion!”

She said, “Okay, you’re ugly, too.”
