19. âDo not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21. for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22. âThe eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. 23. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! 24. âNo one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. ---- https://tinyurl.com/has82mk (NASB)
Let's see, it appears that the County had a month-to-month lease with the MacArthur organization
The lessee made themselves obnoxious to the lessor. As such the lessor terminated their agreement. I assume a 30 days notice was all that was required. If the lease can be terminated for any reason just for the fact that the property owners want it back there's no reason not to be able to get it back.
Perhaps, Grace Community Church can bus people in. Of course it would be another good way of people getting the virus, but they don't seem to care much about that.
Since I didn't watch the NRC, I assume that they were actually strong on law and order--But they might as well been completely hypocritical about it and say that they supported Christianity also.The rogues gallery mentioned in the article are not noted for religious piety

Quantum computers will have some uses in the future, Mike. Just like anything else, they still can be improved upon. It was like saying what good are automobiles in 1896.
Andreas Baumhoff wrote: .... Google and NASA have just announced that they have achieved 'quantum supremacy'. That is the ability of quantum computers to perform certain tasks that a classical computer simply cannot do in a reasonable timeframe. Their quantum computer solved a problem in 200 seconds that would take the worldâs fastest supercomputer 10,000 years.
The problem that was solved is without any practical merits or implications, yet it demonstrates the huge potential quantum computers have and the ability to unlock that potential in the coming years.
This opens up a completely new era where we can now focus on building quantum computers with practical benefits and while this will still be many years away, it will be the new frontier in computation.

That place in the GOP coalition strengthened over the next few decades, with Republicans delivering on agenda items like conservative judges, restrictions on abortion and defense of religious institutions.
But social conservatives and evangelical leaders maintained a conditional relationship with the Republican Party. At a closed-door meeting in 1998, the New York Times reported at the time, Focus On the Family founder James Dobson told his fellow social conservatives that if the GOP continued to "betray" evangelical voters on social issues like homosexuality and sex education funding that he would leave the party and "do everything I can to take as many people with me as possible."...

Now, a lot of law and order talk is code word for racism. There's no question about that. But I think a lot of it is not.
And I think Democrats would be making a mistake if they just said, oh, you're all just a bunch of cryptoracists. I think people have legitimate concerns about expressing their opinion safely, about living safely.
And so I think Biden really would do well by himself to somehow address this issue and say, no, we're for policing, we want to reform policing, but we will keep you safe.
