Biden wouldnât have to fake illness. The reason is he displayed it many times in his inability to speak intelligible sentences. At times he was lucid, which might lead one to conclude heâs on some kind of drug during those lucid times. But his usefulness to the left would likely cease on Inauguration Day.

Thatâs hardly specific, Jim. What did Trump actually do (or not do, in case you shuffle off in that direction) regarding the virus that you disagree with? What did he do in the world of the environment that you disagree with? Surely you have formulated some of your own thoughts on these things. And to quote Ben Shapiro, facts donât care about your feelings.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Samuel Bess and Gang Zhou, had what I think some of the best comments to the article on the article page. Just how are you going to straighten out the sins of the fathers? Of course some whiners say to pray for this and that, which absolves them of any action. it is good that a lot of people are thinking about this problem in Minnesota anyway. Lily white churches as well as complete black ones have a certain blindness to racism. They often forget, Galatians 3:26-28 26. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. -- https://tinyurl.com/has82mk (NASB)
But Jim, Itâs obvious you donât believe those verses. Evidence? You continually define things by color. As in âlily white churchesâ and âcomplete black ones.â It seems to fly over your head that when you do this, when you see the churchâs role as needing color adjustment in order to prove its righteousness in Christ, that you are blind to your very own personal racism.
John Lee wrote: What a waste of a God-given life, to devote oneself to attacking God and God's people. Not only that, it is stupidity also, for what is the reward for doing such? Spending eternity in a lake of fire, being continually punished for sin.
A quote from George Orwell seems to fit your comment, John:
âSo much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who donât even know that fire is hot.â

Aside from what psycobabblers say, could you be more specific? Which of his policies do you disagree with?
Neil wrote: Summa Theologica, Secunda SecundĂŚ Partis, Q 66, Art. 7: "...if the need be so manifest and urgent, that it is evident that the present need must be remedied by whatever means be at hand..., then it is lawful for a man to succor his own need by means of another's property, by taking it either openly or secretly: nor is this properly speaking theft or robbery." With 13th-Century casuistry like this, little wonder the pope can so readily endorse universal income. Besides, clerical benefices are almost the same thing.
I wonder if thereâs a exception clause in there forbidding robbery of the Vatican?
Jim Lincoln wrote: Luther on plagues: "Martin Lutherâs pandemic advice goes viral â 500 years later" https://tinyurl.com/y3ohjdft Actually I doubt a few of the peddlers of the Word in California are going to follow Luther's example.

Two questions. 1. Do you also follow Lutherâs position and believe in Purgatory? 2. Why are you opposed to the Supreme Court ruling according to the obvious meaning of the first Amendment?

Wake up, Jim. Is there a difference? Should we care whether the socialism is national socialism or some other form of idiocy? All lunatics are crazy.

Yes, governments love to make gifts back to the people of some of the money they took from them, and pretend itâs a benefit. Then again, governments could let the people keep their money, and let them benefit from not having an expensive redistribution program run by overpaid 2 legged leeches.

Needless to say, it's getting to be about 7 million people extra over the majority we're not happy with him. But as you see even Joe Biden has other things to do than to worry about Trump. I will be glad when January 20th comes along, and then New York State can start worrying about him.
Dead people and made up people and computer changed voter people donât count, if honor meant anything. But you go ahead and celebrate corruption, Jim. Youâre getting good at it.
Lurker wrote: Ha! Barr's exact words: "the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election." Any idea why he said that, Jim? Because the constitution makes the fraud allegations a matter for the courts. He hasn't seen or uncovered any evidence because it's not being presented to him nor is the DOJ investigating it. But you prefer the spin of the liberal media.
On top of that, it wouldnât take widespread voter fraud anyway, but concentrated fraud in select areas, such as swing States.
The police apologized, which suggests they were wrong. Looks like they didnât understand the rules they were thinking to enforce. People really need to be careful how much power you allow fleshly, worldly men to have.
