    I don’t believe disrespect for authorities is a given here in this nation, nor codified. What the Freemason Deist founding fathers of America did (note their spiritual affiliation and philosophical and theological understanding of the nature of God, which is completely antithetical and foreign to the apostolic Christian understanding) was replace one primal authority with another, namely the Crown was replaced by a Constitution. Respect for the Constitution and the laws of this nation are what is now codified. Respect for these institutions and the civil authorities in this republic are a given and necessary, if we are ‘to keep the Republic’ as Benjamin Franklin said. So your point that “by respecting the civil authorities here you are disrespecting the primal authority by which they got into power” does not make sense to me. They did not destroy civil or state power, they simply replaced it, and while they did demonstrate disrespect to the ordained authorities by their revolution, what they insisted upon and expected was respect and allegiance to the Constitution and other charters of the early Republic. Now we can argue the merits of the Constitution and a democratically elected Constitutional Republic versus other forms of governments (all have their own advantageous and disadvantages, and most definitely some are better at producing lasting peace and justice than others), but as a Christian, our main goal as I know you would agree is seeking and entering the Kingdom of Heaven, even as we struggle in this fallen world, in whatever circumstance we find ourselves, freeman or slave. No one should believe for a second that an American citizen living with many civil freedoms and liberties and living a prosperous American dream has an advantage in getting into Heaven over, say, a persecuted, poor citizen suffering under a tyrannical authoritative regime. Indeed, I would say it will be much easier for the latter than the former before the judgment seat of God. (this is probably straying from our topic however). What no Church Father ever taught however was anarchy, which is antithetical to the will of God. Nor constant rebellion cause of muh’ rights, as if the state is what will lead us to the fulfillment of life which is found not in this world but in a much higher realm. That doesn’t mean we should necessarily be passive sheep and silently take unjustified abuse (even though that is in fact the divine way as demonstrated by the Suffering Servant and Innocent Lamb of God Jesus Christ). But it is not easy being a Saint and to follow this higher path, especially when our egos and pride constantly seeks self-serving satisfaction and human justice. But God knows we are weak, and, thankfully, He is merciful, and oppossing tyrannical regimes and occupiers can of course blessed by God when done for righteous and selfless reasons, such as protecting the faithful and the innocent. Government is a force, a tool, which can be used for good or for bad. It is not de facto an enemy of the people nor the Church, and can very well be an ally in the protection of the faithful and in fulfilling the admonition of Christ to spread the gospel and baptize the world in the Name of the Holy Trinity. We pray every Divine Liturgy that God enlightens our civil authorities to make good use of such worldly power and authority, for peaceful and just purposes. All the Church Fathers exalted the good aspects of civil governing forces, while castigating the particular bad aspects, especially those which were unjust or idolatrous.

    Sadly I do agree with you about Putin. His people love him mostly. Russia is not what I would call a Free Country. What we can do is try to observe them as objectively as possible and see whether or not we see the outcome as being either "good" or "bad" for what we have here. What worries me is that we have become almost just as Statist, maybe not in our form of government, but definitely in our Application and Culture. All these damn Snowflakes claiming "should not have a right to hurt my feelings", like the ass mongers that get all butt hurt when they cross dress and the person talking to them literally does not know wheter to call them Sir or Ma'am or whatever their bullshit words are to describe in between.

    When the founding fathers actively engaged in rebellion against their rightfully ordained civil authorities, they established that a foundational principle in the United States would be altering or abolishing civil authority at will. This is a land where disrespect for authorities is a given, and even codified. If I respect civil authorities here I am disrespecting the primal authority by which they got into power.

    If you want quality, then I suggest staying away from Lowes, Home Depot, Walmarx, and all the big box stores. I stay away from them more and more. I examine things I buy when it's visible. The specs on many, many of their items are reduced. They use thinner metal, plastic where there should be metal, etc. Just some examples: I was foolish enough to buy a Toro from Home Depot 10 years ago. The self-propel went out a few years later. I was foolish enough to buy a water heater from Lowes around 2010. I changed the anode rod 2015 with a rod from an independent hardware store. The factory anode rod had 14 inches left out of 42 inches. I checked the rod again Jan. 2019. Do you know how many inches were lost on that independent hardware store anode rod? None. All 42 inches were still there.

    Why? Because being gay has more impact on history than... oh, say, something like FREEDOM, or Taxation Without Representation, Marxism, yeah, being gay is so much more important. Whats important here is that it should be blatantly obvious that schools of ANY kind are no longer about Education, but obedience and thinking what students are told to think, thus, what is important is not Fiat Currencies or the significance of the Magna Carta, but wanting to go for a ride on the Baloney Pony. Think only about what you are told to think about, and nothing else. There is only one point of view, and that is the point of view of Authority. We now return you to your regularly scheduled Nightly Fear Report so you get all hysterical if Trump says something about "dont ask dont tell dont hump my leg" or some such nonsensory bullshit.

    Yes they do. They have their own personalities and quirks and so many things that we can not even begin to understand because we cant "just ask" them. I think one learned leaving a bit of food a lot thru my interactions with them. I free-feed both of them in order to build Food Confidence. They eat dog food until they are full, and have learned to stop and control their own eating habits. I have done my best to make sure that neither one of my dogs ever had a fear of not knowing where the next meal is coming from. At dinner, I leave something on my plate and put some food down for both of them equally and fairly. They are both older dogs, and I think they may have learned to share with each other as a lot of dog behavioral problems come from food. They are brother and sister, so I couldnt breed them. They came from different litters so I dont really know if they know they are brother and sister, but one thing is for sure, they have bonded with each other.

    HAHA! I just saw your post in another thread (I was catching up on forum drama) about Mr A putting me on a leash. I don't think he would do that to me if he could. Even though he complains about my oversharing sometimes (not on the forum but IRL. I'm not good at filtering), he knows I'm a good girl and despite my outward personality, I'm a surprisingly solid and committed person underneath. We've been together since I was 23 (24 years/married 20), he knows everything - even stuff he'd rather not know.
