What's missing in Ms Warren's impeachment call is anything remotely like a strategy toward 67 Senate votes after the House acts.
While she and others may have a strategy, it'd be heartwarming to know that even w.o details, because the single event that could warp-speed us into fascism and move us far beyond the current tips of the hat to fascism we see weekly now, would be an impeachment vote in…Continue
There is Religious understanding from the Gospels, and there are Religious - Catholic and Protestant - scholars alike, research professors, who, many also reverends and priests, have long striven to find any evidence for such a 'Joseph' and in well over 100 research years have found none, nor a trace of one. And no archeologist has found a barest trace of a Judean town with a name like "Aramathea"...Christian religious archeologists have, then,…Continue
ROME was the most routinely and casually brutal regime in the West until the Nazis.
Crucifixion was used all over the empire but in Palestine, Romans knew it "hurt" more (in Israel and in Judea) bc Jewish Law (Halacha) forbade a body to remain in the open after sundown; a desecration...and the grieving family simply had to suffer that insult atop injury.…Continue
The moment Dems announce they're ready to run on socialism in any form the game's bloody over, and that despite the hundreds of excellent existing programs that are iterations of democratic socialism here.
Just a few:…Continue
Upon leaving the pool, and as I do each morning, I turned toward the guard, waved across the water, "Have a good day; thanks very much..." ...to which my I-Phone half a minute on as I walked through the locker room answered, "No problem!".
FRIENDS: 50 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK IOWA’S MARY BETH TINKER AND HER BROTHER, JOHN, WON AT THE COURT. THEY'D WORN BLACK ARMBANDS TO SCHOOL TO RAISE AWARENESS ABT WHAT THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN WAR, THE VIETNAM WAR, WAS DOING TO ASIA AND TO US HERE AT HOME.
THEY WERE SANCTIONED BY THEIR SCHOOL AND SO AN ULTIMATELY SUCCESSFUL BLOW FOR STUDENTS’ FIRST AMENDMENT…Continue
With dismay I cannot ignore the latest pedophile scandal in the Pennsylvania dioceses. Pennsylvania’s my home state…Philadelphia (and in every Pennsylvania diocese) so this is particularly galling, not only to my friends who are Catholic but to all there I know who care about justice for kids.
300 and more priests are caught up on this latest series of violations and cover-ups…Continue
WILL WAIT TO RECORD NEXT EPISODE IN CASE BY END OF SPEECH PUTIN'S FED UP w HIM & LOBS MISSILES.
Should he bypass Congress and the law and appropriate funds for this barbaric and bound-to-be ineffective wall, you will see a nation in constitutional crisis unseen in the life of the republic. The current tip of the American hat to fascism will then have become a full-bodied embrace.
Nail the month and day, in 2019, on which he will no longer, for any reason, be President of the United States...tho pls state your reason he will not be president on the date you've chosen.
Person closest to the date will win a 6-pack of your favorite beer, ale, or soda. And eternal kudos.
If you think this will…Continue
I WISH YOU, SINCERELY, A DEEPLY SPIRITUAL RETURN-CRUMMY-GIFTS-DAY.
From jump let me say that what I believe about the man is not devotional. No remotely Jewish notion of God--and we do know that he emerges, in Christian texts themselves, wholly sprung from Judaism--can sustain the idea of human blood atonement for sin (or for anything else). Judaism quite early and decisively rejects human sacrifice for any reason when God's messenger explicitly forbids Abraham, wholly prepared to show obedience by slaughtering his son, from wielding the…
All one must know of the two are their Character Signatures -- one, his painstaking persuasion for health care systemic betterment, accomplished, whose core is inclusion and dignity for the least among us; the other, his rabid fiscal/militaristic threats over a stalled wall, whose core is exclusion born of toxic cultural and racial bigotry.
