Well, one solution is to stop allowing comments to be added to all news stories here. That would save time for the posters that they can use to sleep and the readers, too. re: famous people not sleeping much 1. President Donald Trump sleeps less than 5 hours a night and seems to be doing well. 2. Winston Churchill slept little
Japan's NHK channel reports that Chinese tourists use their smartphones in Japan. This has made many Japanese stores install new 'cash registers' to handle the phones. I've also heard many govt transit systems in the US are now accepting smartphone payment. Many US cities also accept smartphone payment for parking. I think this is the Wave of the Future, with everything being done on your smartphone.
It would be good to hear from more SA posters that use these types of medical plans, esp. older ones who have Medicare. I think a lot depends on a person's health situation. A friend told me he attended many meetings at work for pre-retirees and they used to talk about how many more years they would live, once they reached age 65, so they needed to plan financially for that. Well, as he looked around the room, he could see many obese people, and during breaks, saw a few head outdoors for a smoke. He said he doubted those people needed to plan on a long retirement! Nor the ones with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, and many other common diseases.
Parents and grandparents should look at the history books their kids are studying--if they are written by Howard Zinn, they are in for a Big Surprise. Check out the article about him at the website, lawliberty.org
Wow! I didn't know Carl McIntyre had his own website! I thought he was the wacko preacher who bought a boat and broadcast off the East Coast of the USA years ago. I thought he went the way of Harold Camping! By the way, when I tried the link, the C Post website said, 'article not found' But I have heard of this story from the NY Times. It is funny how people will buy something thinking it is something house, like getting a pig in a poke.
A perfect example of what some call 'brains full of mush' and of what scientists say--that the human brain does not mature until age 25, esp. the area where decision making occurs. This reminds me of the interviews of college students in Minnesota done before Thanksgiving, asking them about it, and they all mouthed off what their leftist college profs had been feeding them (and yes, even their high school history books, written by leftists Howard Zinn). It also makes the case for home schooling, using history books not written by Zinn, and even the influence of mothers and grandmothers, which leads me to a favorite chapter, 1 Timothy 5, which could be subtitled, 'Lifestyles of the Older Christian Woman.' It tells us that older women should stay at home to raise their children, in church guide young mothers and do good works, etc.
Despite all the glowing reports of Israel given by so many evangelicals (promoting their guided tours of the area), Israel is not a Christian country, nor one that is populated by people who love the Bible, live according to Jewish laws, etc. Even in the good ol' USA, a good third of Jews do not believe in God (hey, maybe that's why they also find it easy to vote for Democrats!). I'm still waiting for someone to answer this question: if the modern country of Israel only came into existence after the end of World War Two, how did God bless the USA and allow us and the Allied Powers victory in that war, since we had not prayed for the peace of Jerusalem ever before (or during) and even the great and wonderful US President Franklin Roosevelt diverted aid from this country's own War in the Pacific to the Soviets.
True enough Carl, the mainstream media cannot publish any positive news if in any way, Republicans or President Donald Trump might use it for their credit. I think the left's academics are looking for ways to explain away this news, like saying that it means only that more rich people are living in cities, and poor people are being forced out (gentrification).
Interesting that this comes from the National Review's website. Of course, few people are buying or subscribing to their magazine, though they still have to pay nearly 2 million bucks each year in salaries for their top honchos.
I don't see too many women driving tow trucks either, nor are they working as roofers or construction workers. Anyone complaining about that? Same thing happens with the crime problem: if you use the facts--crime statistics-that show mostly blacks are killing whites and others in states like Virginia, you will be asked to leave the room and called a bad word---'racist' All you did was add 2 plus 2 to get 4. Baltimore is just an example of what happens when lots of blacks have guns and use them, mostly on each other. But ask the YMCA there about their young white employee who was shot and killed by blacks at his front door. Don't stop at Baltimore, though, you can go south to Coral Gables, Florida and ask about a jewelry robbery there, commmitted by 2 armed black felons, who hijacked a UPS truck and had the driver take them north until traffic (on a busy Friday afternoon before Christmas)jammed up and a shoot-out ensued with result-2 blacks dead by police and unfortunately, the UPS driver and a bystander.
Here's a good New Year's Tradition that is easy to follow: get out your monthly calendar and mark every second Tuesday of each month as "MS Update" That way, you will be prepared for it and not plan on doing any complicated work using your computer on those days, or shortly after. A friend tells me that in his govt sector job, they would not update their computers on that day, but wait a couple weeks to make sure all the bugs have been worked out.
'Welcome to My World' where wrong is right and right is wrong (and penalized, as in the case of the 16-yr prison sentence meted out to the guy who took down a 'rainbow' flag and burned it). But black women in Brooklyn who assault Orthodox Jewish women are let free.
Imagine the amount of carbon dioxide and other gasses being added to the environment! Philippines should be fined by the UN for allowing such pollution to occur. What will Alexandria Occasional Cortex say?
Another movement in govt is to reduce or eliminate enforcement of 'petty' crimes, like jumping the gates at subway stations. Politicians are now saying all transit should be free because the reality is that the few bucks each fare costs does not make up much of the transit system's budget.
But he is on the wrong side of the immigration issue, siding with Open Borders advocates. Check out Ann Corcoran's website, Refugee Resettlement Watch for more info (click on little house above this post).
One thing that is not complicated is that Muslims Mission Statement--Conquer the World--by sword, if necessary, by any means necessary. Christians have a Mission Statement--to spread the gospel to all men everywhere, so no one has the excuse--I wasn't told! But that's it. It's not our job to convert anyone to Christianity; we let the Holy Spirit do that work. Anyone who watches Dr. Michael Yousseff from Atlanta knows that Muslims also have the Corollary to their Mission Statement: that everyone is their enemy, unless they are Muslim (and even then, there are fights over who is a True Muslim, and part of the Middle East mess is due to this). The govt TV network PBS aired a special about how Wonderful Spain was when Muslims, Jews and Christians lived peacefully together. Really? Were Christians and Jews free to do artwork that depicted a human or animal form, like Michaelangelo's David sculpture? Didn't they have to pay the 'dhimmi' tax to Muslims for not being Muslims?
This shows you the importance of our President Donald Trump's work on appointing new judges, and 'The Turtle' Sen. McConnell holding up Obama's judicial appointments, so that lots of spaces would be available for the next president.
