Or maybe we are progressing and evolving to take us to new area’s… it is worth a consideration!


#1764

Yes, of course. Like your friend that believes the ideal world, is represented by Andy Griffith show.

So if we lived around, near or with…Barney File, Goober Pyle, Gomer Pyle, Ernest T. Bass, and Otis Campbell…We might be living, in an ideal world…It’s all a matter of perspective!

I’m not sure what you are getting at. But you seem to be convinced.

Good Luck. :grinning:

TIMOTHY 2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 v for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.

Here’s an interesting story, in today’s BBC news:

Let me quote this statement:

Finns have been baffled by US President Donald Trump’s comments praising the country for managing its vast forests by raking.

I hope President Trump, didn’t get this news about raking - from the world’s new media! Or even worse, one of the world’s supermarket tabloids!


#1768

Let’s see - 10,000 homes, a city, burnt; 80 lives lost (and many more to be discovered),untold thousands of people’s livelihood destroyed, and them misplaced, billions of dollars of environment and structure destroyed and -
California is responsible for misuse of funds and resources because of idiotic environmental policies, so:
obviously, when the Pres is trying to help, if he uses one wrong word, THAT’s the news.

Yeah he is such a terrible man.

(Randy - not aimed at you, bro. It’s the good ol’ “completely neutral” msm)

Let’s ALL reflect, on these words of wisdom - for today:

“I’d give up chocolate, but I’m no quitter!”-- Author Unknown

I finally got it. As the GDP grows, money is created to match that growth whether printed or by the magic of software! I’m not certain that the USA doesn’t create money beyond debt creation right now? If that is the case i don’t think it’s directly tied to GDP growth but some connection to inflation increases.


#1771

Well, everyone made a big stink about Hillary’s email stuff. And rightfully so, I might add. But this article from the BBC today, is very interesting.

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”-- John Wooden


#1772

One thing can be guaranteed… you won’t hear the same vitriol from the Hilary hater hypocrites.


#1773

Right! And so many - hundreds!! And as soon as Ivanka personally removes 33,000 emails while under investigation - oh wait, that’s been done, but Fox made a stink out of it. I guess BBC did as well?
You guys are a riot, I tell ya, a riot…and you do great baiting…:slight_smile:


#1774

And why should I listen to you when I have great minds as resources, such as, say…


#1775

…… Me. It’s simple. 1) I think Ivanka looks great, far better-looking than the other lady. 2) Surely fair-minded people would acknowledge a vast difference existed between a woman who was new to political life and one who had spent over 20 years in government and politics. But MSM exists on making mountains out of molehills.


#1776

I apologize for posting this DEMOCRATIC attorney’s analysis of the big email flap over Ivanka - not for what he says, but for the audacity of saying it to fox news, who are known for their acerbic vitriol and hatred of everything except the very rich, and for eating babies, for being a cancer, and for loving white Christian folk. :wink:


I can bait too - gonna bite?


#1777

…and right on cue


#1778

I know - it’s good you’re predictable!! :rofl:


#1779

No. But I have some friends, who can bite! They’re knocking on your door right now, Dave!

From Babylon Bee.
In yet another disaster caused by President Trump’s winning just far too much, whole caravans of people are trying to enter the US so they too can experience the flawless presidenting of Donald Trump.
“We don’t know what to do,” said ICE official Brett Kelley. “Trump is just too successful as president. Everyone from all over has heard how great he is, and we can’t stop them from trying to get here.”
The Democrats have begun condemning Trump for being far too good at everything. “Trump needs to reduce the quality of his presidenting,” demanded Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. “The only way to end this crisis is for him to stop being the greatest president of all time.”
Trump has stubbornly refused, though. “I can’t be anything less than the greatest ever,” Trump announced. “It’s impossible. I know you’re getting tired of hearing everyone everywhere talk about what a tremendous job I’m doing, but there’s nothing I can do to stop that. The only thing I can fail at is failure.”
Officials now fear that the U.S. could collapse under the weight of all the people trying to get into the country—though they say none of us will be around to experience that, since we’ll have already suffocated under the piles of money from the great jobs Trump has created.

Following the tear-gas HORROR and FEROCIOUS ATTACK ON POOR CARAVAN PEOPLE BY THAT GIANT STUPID MAN TRUMP -

I thought the BBC - the paragon of transparent, non-biased news, would point out that under OBAMA, TEAR GAS WAS USED OVER 65 TIMES AT THE BORDER BUT NO - BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THEY DID NOT MENTION THAT FACT BUT WERE HAPPY TO VILLIFY TRUMP. WHY WHY WHY?

Oops - I forgot the ‘caps’ was on :slight_smile:
I used the BBC ‘search’ function for any mention of Obama’s use of the gas and could not find one. Maybe I missed it.

John Piper should have written about how to live under an unqualified, biased, agenda-driven socialist media and educational system. But no. Trump is the least of our problems.
Ok, ok, I’ll get back on the meds…:sunglasses:


#1782

Could be, that the Obama news…has “run out of gas”, for the BBC…and the rest of the world’s new media. But rest assured, Trump does supply an endless assortment of material…for them to report on. :smile:

And maybe…they needed someone like you, back then…to bring this to their attention! :wink:
