    Failing to acknowledge God's living power to do New Testament miracles is possibly the single biggest failure in the faith of the modern church. I grew up in churches where God can "technically" do a miracle but, for all practical intents and purposes, never does. Scriptural stories of miracles were historical aberrations that God permitted for salvation or other reasons known only to him. Later in life, I came to realize that this is completely backwards. God works miracles constantly. Not comfortable sharing my stories in this context but I'll just say this: God does miracles every single day, all around the world and I don't mean that in the poetic "my baby is a miracle"-sense, I mean it in the good old-fashioned raising-the-dead-and-casting-out-demons sense. That's not a statement about how I feel about the world, I know that in the same sense that I know the sky is blue. Anyone who says "God doesn't / can't do miracles" is just arrogant and trapped in adolescent know-it-allism. If you haven't seen a miracle, just be patient. In fact, no matter who you are, you have seen many miracles and you just don't realize it. If you don't believe or refuse to believe then you won't see a miracle, until it's too late. That's Gospel 101.

    Logical: Concerning truth and the relations between true things Moral: Concerning right behavior and treatment of people and resources Strategic: Concerning the best methods to achieve a given goal "Ultimate" things are the great enemy of strategy, because any ultimate commitment is just a free lever that you give to your enemy. Suppose you believe it is a great sin to strike someone in the face and you get into a fight with a man who knows this about you. For him, this knowledge makes the fight a thousand times easier since he does not need to cover his face, while he can still strike yours. This is the same mistake as choosing "ultimate" values in your political strategy. The R/D-swamp are not fighting by any rules at all, they are fighting as dirty as it is possible to fight. The conservative wing of the R-swamp has a huge PR push along the lines that they stand for "God, family and tradition" and this might even be true for those in that wing, but it is certainly not true of the R-swamp itself (quite the opposite!) Those true conservatives in the GOP who are naively working for the R-swamp do not understand that they are actively sabotaging their own goals in pretty much the most effective way possible. If they did, they would leave. The only thing of real value that a political party offers is its election/canvassing machinery (messaging + voting registration). The LP has a 80+% functioning political machine. It's not yet 100.0% functional and spit-shined like the R/D-swamp machinery. But it's mostly functioning and mostly ready-to-go. If the LP can breathe new life through the MC and become a fully-functioning political apparatus, it could become the vehicle for completing the movement that MAGA started. Instead of aiming for 50%+1 vote, why not start aiming for super-majorities? Yes, that sounds like wishful thinking at this point in time but every dream starts that way. Which is closest to the vision of the founding Fathers -- R, D or MC? Obviously, it's the MC. Both R and D are today a bunch of warmongering, Woke CCP zombies, with few exceptions. MC wins by a country mile.

    :facepalming: If you're conservative, then you should know the world does need another savior, it already has One, and that's the only Savior that anybody needs. For all I know, Musk could be the most evil person to have ever lived. It's really beside the point. The point is that Twitter is part of another evil system that is certainly the most evil system to have ever existed... it easily fulfills 90+% of the prophecies of the Beast System of Daniel and Revelation. They're sincerely furious with Musk (and Trump) -- so it's at least a hellhound-versus-hellhound fight. And if Satan does indeed begin to oppose Satan, that is a sign of the dawning of Revelation and true deliverance from this evil world. Or, perhaps Musk and Trump are misunderstood, or working undercover on God's behalf (yes, that's a real thing), and so on. We just don't know. But all of this Orange Man Bad, Space Man Bad crap is just transparent rah-rah-GOP fearmongering....

    I don't really care that much about some motorcycles. It could be somebody's livelihood in some cases, which is sad, but they'll probably overcome. The balls-out, dick-wagging bullying, however, will end. It will stop or it will be put to a stop, bullies' choice.

    Yes. But the MC's position is slightly more nuanced that just this. The GOP platform is pro-life, but at State not Federal level. It seems like a good plank but the problem is that it still divides the country. While it may be worthwhile to divide over certain issues, the whole purpose of a political party is to unite a sub-community to make effective political action possible. It doesn't benefit the LP (doesn't advance its broader political objectives) to have an abortion plank but, instead, to leave the issue to individual candidates to run on whichever side of the issue they hold to, and leave it to voters to decide. It's a fresh take and I think they have gotten it exactly right.

    All of these issues are really tactical in nature, not strategic. The abortion issue is a great example of this in action. The MC controversially removed the pro-abortion plank of the LP. Dave Smith explained it well in his interview with Gillespie -- it's an issue that is dividing the LP due to personal beliefs, just like it divides the whole country, when it's not something that actually sets the LP apart from the other two parties. The MC will not be putting a pro-life plank in the platform, either. That's not because the MC or its members are pro-choice (DS is pro-life) but because it doesn't make sense to have a plank that divides your party. DS explained in that interview that individual candidates are free to run pro-life campaigns within the umbrella of the LP, and they could even make that run at the national level, so this isn't even about saying "State but not Federal". It's about saying that the party has to have a platform that unites libertarians without opposing the principles of liberty. Which is obvious. From a philosophical/theological perspective, pro-life can't really be separated from liberty. But there are lots of things that can't be separated from liberty in that way, but which don't make sense to be a part of the LP platform, or any political party's platform, for the simple reason that that's not what political parties are for. Getting dressed in the morning before you leave your house is a logical precondition of liberty, but anti-nudity doesn't need to be a plank in the LP platform. It just doesn't make sense. So the philosophical/theological can be separated from the political without becoming an outright pragmatist. It's a question of what sorts of things make sense to be addressed at the civil level. And that's partly a function of the views of the people, you can't just treat it as some kind of abstraction handed down from On High.

    If the door was, indeed, a steel/steel-framed door as reported and it was locked and the police did not, indeed, have a key (for whatever reason) just kicking the door or even smashing it with a hand-held battering ram would have been either completely ineffective or would have required an outrageously long time (15-20 minutes or longer) to actually beat the door down. Flailing away at a steel door while the perp potentially has living victims inside would be an act of reckless incompetence because the futile pounding would almost certainly motivate him to continue shooting remaining hostages. I am not making any comment in respect to the overall competency/liability of the Uvalde police or other local agencies for their response to the situation. I am only pointing out that many of the criticisms of the local police response that are getting huge traction in the media are blatantly absurd, and obvious agitprop. The political purpose of this event is transparently obvious. The kid caught with his hand in the cookie jar was not "checking to make sure the humidity of the jar is correct so the cookies don't mold." Regardless of the actual body-count, and regardless of the competence or incompetence of the local police response, this was a PSYOP, that is, a staged event. The DS/Dems have calculated that ACAB is a political wedge-issue that they can use to rally their own base while fragmenting the conservative base between the Thin Blue Liners and those of us who are automatically skeptical of government power and vocally critical of the post-911 militarization of local police. If you don't understand that, you don't understand anything about this news story. You are the dog being wagged.
