Guilty until proven innocent is another "new normal" being introduced while we "stay safe." Amazing how much can be done in a short while by simply creating an emergency. Ah, longing for the good old days of 15 days to flatten the curve. I wonder how flat it has to be? It's horizontal in NY, but Cuomo is still issuing emergency derived executive orders. It's so hard to let go when you're liberal and obsessed with your own messianic importance.

True, QC, which is why we shouldn't allow them to establish the groundwork for any interchange. The problem we have seen over the years, is they say something untrue, and we argue not about the truth, but about secondary issues. They revise history, and we talk about their reality as if it were reality. The Revolution gave a bit of freedom. These revisionist counterrevolutionary clowns want to take it away. Plain enough they aren't revolutionary, but reactionary. We should call them that, quit playing their game. We need be as assertive with truth as they are with lies. At least that's how I see it. IMO, It's the liars and deceivers that need to defend their lies and deceptions.

Even as the leftist mobs burn the cities, you do your usual ignoring of the thread and attempt to change its direction. Just say "white" a couple times. If that's too weak, add "supremacy." It's like talking about a piggy bank theft after several commercial banks have been robbed. You're so predictable, Jim. How sad you don't really have a mind of your own, the independent mind you claim to have. Your automated responses are evidence enough.

Personally I wish he'd respond less to accusations than he does. Ignore the cranks. After all, some time does have to be spent doing other things, like breathing.
I still would like to know if it's a sin to have Mason jars.
Homosexuality, which by its nature is self extinguishing, because it cannot reproduce itself, is supported by the same people who believe in evolution, which teaches survival of the fittest. A moment of reflection could bring light to the issue. But reflection doesn't seem to be a strong point of the promoters of either.

Christians should never take risks. Jesus came to make us safe from risk. Pray for a vaccine? How about pray for discernment? You try it and let us know if it works. Do you realize that 1% of the US population has already been affected by Covid19, Jim? And 97- 99% of that 1% will be fine? Aren't you glad our world has shut down in terror? Oh by the way, according to CDC data, the death rate is still dropping. Why isn't the media talking about this good news? Stay safe, Jim. Wear your particulate mask in security. You never know when a dust devil might stir up out there in Nebraska.

Hexagon, not hex- best most efficient shape for honeycomb built by honeybees. Land of milk and honey, provided by God, included hexagon shape. Wouldn't be right to say devil made God do it. Hex(spell) and hexagon( six sides) not related. We should be careful not to mislead self. Heart can be deceitful.
Hopefully this will be seen somewhat humorously, but in this day of continual offendedness, who knows? Anyway I was thinking about color, and how in science class we learned about the light/color spectrum. One thing we learned was, black is the absence of color. Does that mean white people must be people of color?
John UK wrote: Hi Mike, I don't disagree bro. But I have thought back over my entire life, and have never (because I believed it to be wrong, call it conscience or whatever) used that word or any similar word when talking about black people. It seemed disrespectful to me then (going back several decades) and even more so now. And I think if you ask people who do actually use that particular word, what they think of blacks, you would find that most if not all of them despise black people. Oh, I found the article. See for yourself. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-53436447
I never used the name either, if it's the one I think was meant. What is strange is, how easily we now use the term "black" considering it was once considered racist and offensive.
John UK wrote: The BBC early on this morning were running a story about a memorial dedicated to a black labrador which was unfortunately killed by a car on the same day that its owner, Wing Commander Gibson, was leading the Dambusters raid on three German dams during the second world war. The story of the dog appears in the film Dambusters, and inoffensively was given the name often given to black people, which name now appears offensive to most all people. The RAF have decided the memorial has become inappropriate, and will be taking the name of the dog off the plaque. I remember thinking that the selfsame word is found once in the New Testament, and wondered if this will cause a problem in the future. I've just looked around the site for the story and it seems to have been taken down by the BBC.
Black Labs Matter, John. Seriously though, those who are perpetually offended will find offense, or if there are none immediately available, create one. Fallen man is such a happy fellow, no? Everything is someone else's fault.
