    This was the headline on twitter earlier: They're already saying Elliot because "deadnaming" someone is a great crime against the trans gods. This headline is completely incoherent unless you already knew the story. Someone who didn't know about Ellen Page would have no fucking idea what this even means.

    The Week That Perished https://www.takimag.com/article/the-week-that-perished-115/ The Week’s Chunkiest, Clunkiest, and Slam-Dunkiest Headlines WAIT, TRUMP FAILED TO LOCK SOMEONE UP? NO! If there’s a single story that encapsulates the unrealized promise of the Trump administration and the dashed dreams of its supporters, it’s the odd saga of Mexico’s former defense minister Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos. In October, El General was arrested at LAX by the DEA. Cienfuegos had come to L.A. for a family vacation (hard to believe that a Mexican would consider L.A. to be a “vacation,” as the city has more Mexicans than Mexico), and the DEA was waiting for him. As explained by The Sunday Times, “after years of painstaking investigation the DEA had established that he was a shadowy figure drug traffickers referred to as El Padrino (the Godfather).”

    The Cars We Could Have Bought… https://www.ericpetersautos.com/2020/12/01/the-cars-we-could-have-bought/ By eric - December 1, 2020 The cars you’re allowed to buy today are the cars government allows to be manufactured. But what kinds of cars might we be able to buy if the government (which, always keep in mind, is just a relative handful of other people who have somehow acquired the power to tell you what you’re allowed to buy) got out of the car business and left the designing of cars to the car manufacturers and the buying of cars to customers . . . who could buy what they wanted and not buy what they didn’t want to buy? There would certainly be more variety – including very basic cars priced around $8,000 or even less that would be marketed at teens/first-time buyers or the frugal of all ages. Because there is a market for inexpensive cars – currently being filled, artificially, by used cars. Because new cars are too expensive for teens/first-time buyers – and of little interest to the frugal.

    Nah, not really. The world and it's natural laws are still in place and fully functional. This creature is a genetic dead end and will never reproduce naturally.

    Ha, so I guess I'm the resident gun nut now. Drake is mostly right here: I'd only say that the courts could easily rule on an "accessory" as opposed to a vital part. A bump stock is not required for a well made rifle to function. A magazine is. I think a bigger question here is not why is Trump weak on guns, but rather why was Obama so weak on gun control when he had the upper hand on many occasions?

    You probably did jump in at the wrong time. :) I was initially arguing against the idea that a regressive income tax is somehow better than a tariff for...reasons. That said, there is a hidden cost to your ability to trade with someone across the ocean. That's the cost of the U.S. Navy. If the U.S. Navy quit protecting shipping lanes, either other countries would step up (and charge THEIR citizens the cost which would raise the cost of whatever it is you want to import), or merchant ships would have to arm themselves which would also raise the cost. And...it would probably become cheaper. Remember that Tom Hanks movie about the captain that hijacked by Somali pirates because all he had was a flare gun? I wonder how much his rescue by Navy SEALS cost? One merchant machine armed with a 50 cal and with the proper training could have avoided the whole thing.

    Bingo! For the life of me I don't get why some people would support an even more onerous income tax over broad tariffs. Let's tax the hell out of the U.S. economy to avoid taxing the foreigners? And sorry that "It hurts consumers" argument is nonsense. The idea of the "consumer economy" is nonsense. At some point if you aren't producing as a nation you are going under.

    I am not a time traveler, but maybe you and I are from alternative universes because I cannot think of a year in recent memory where somebody wasn't pushing for gun control. Or have you forgotten Sandy Hook or the Parkland Massacre? And Trump threw the NRA under the bus and hinted at supporting an assault weapons ban. So your point is...? By the way, this is the SECOND time Trump went on record supporting an assault weapons ban. The first time was in 2002 in his book "The America You Deserve." Trump thinks you "deserve" a for your assault weapons to be taken away. And here is the danger. A Biden will go full bore supporting gun control and pretty much the entire GOP will be reflexively against him. Trump got RAND PAUL to go a long (temporarily) with red flag laws! Why do you not understand how that is a bigger threat? The dems are expected to be for gun control. You just need a handful of republicans to go along with it and its game over. You know why we have a machine gun ban? It wasn't because of Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. It was because of Ronald Wilson Reagan.

    Let me get this straight. You quote Ron Paul for the idea of tariffs being bad but you support a tax for just being alive and making over the poverty level? That...that's your argument? A capitation tax is still an income tax. Ron Paul on user fees and tariffs versus the income tax. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6bAVJ6ZdnI That doesn't stop international merchants from pushing for war. It's not just the short term gains that some definitely make. It's the long term gains. The banana wars profited Dole long after the war was over.

    Is Mexico on the other side of the ocean? Is Canada? For your "free trade across the ocean" the rest of us pay for the U.S. Navy. Now I would complain about disbanding the Navy in place of a really good coast guard. Maybe a sub fleet. But none of this "protect the shipping lanes" nonsense. If you want all that done then you, not me, should have to pay for it.

    Only the U.S. citizens who choose to consume slave labor goods from overseas. And they only have to pay it if they buy through the cartel. You want to go to Mexico and buy something and come back, no tariff. If you are for open borders then you have a right to complain about a tariff. If you are for closed borders then tariffs are the user fee for the tyranny you want.

    Obama served two terms and didn't ban assault weapons or bump fire stocks. (Trump banned bump fire stocks). Obama in his two terms signed executive orders reversing bans on guns in federal parks and on Amtrak. A) That makes Trumps anti gun moves even more baffling. B) Compare apples to apples. Biden to Obama. If a Biden administration is like the Obama administration then it will be better on guns than Trump was.

    You're free to reject that the earth is round too. Cartels are typically led by groups of individuals. Still corporations fought for the right to be treated as a collective. But I'm all for doing away with corporate personhood. I reject ^that as absolutely false. If you don't want to pay a tariff, then don't. I already explained to you how to trade across borders without paying tariffs. The biggest barrier to tariff free cross border trade is "border security" and not the tariffs themselves. I'm curious. Are you for open borders? Anyway you can avoid tariffs the way people doing yard sales avoid sales tax. Technically a city or state could charge a sales tax for someone doing a yard sale. It's just impractical to do that because the returns on small sales tax enforcement would just be too small. The same goes for tariffs.

    Yeah. Who gave us the bump stock ban? Was it Obama? Nope. It was Trump. Who floated "red flag" laws? Was it Obama? Nope. It was Trump. Trump even got Rand Paul buying into that red flag garbage for a hot second. Still I thank Matt Collins for bringing this up. The key is to keep the GOP's feet to the fire.

    I'm 100% certain that Bush stole the election for Gore in 2000. I got over it. I'm fairly certain that he stole in from Kerry in 2004. I got over it. There is most certainly fraud in this election. No honest person can say the Dominion voting machines are solid when democrats like Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobachar were raising red flags about them in 2019. Was it enough to tip the balance against Trump? Hard to say. But if he doesn't pull out an actual certified victory than come January he needs to move out and move on and everyone else needs to get over it. That doesn't mean don't keep working to expose the fraud. But we need to quit acting like this is the first time something like this ever happened. It's pretty much zero chance the democrats get the Senate. The republicans in charge of Georgia's election may hate Trump, but I doubt they hate the entire GOP enough to allow a second round of cheating. Then again the evidence suggests that these republicans cheated the democrats back in 2018 and the dems might be holding that evidence over their heads. Regardless, life goes on.

    music director at the Catholic Church I went to removed all references to God as he and used gender neutral terms instead. Two priest did nothing about it. In the Orthodox Churches that I've gone to not just the priest and bishops would not have put up with that, but neither would the congregation. The reason the Orthodox is Orthodox world wide despite separation by land, language and nationalities is that the congregation wants to be Orthodox.

    BTW, these are some generalities. I've been to some good Catholic Churches and luke warm Orthodox Churches but I've found Orthodoxy a lot more consistent but oddly, less rigid at the same time.

    I found there is less of a tendency for people to ask favors in prayer and more to accept God's will and his mercies.

    From my understanding, the roots of the schism go back to Augustine. He was a Latin speaking lawyer who didn’t read the Greek of the Desert Fathers. Luther and many other reformers were heavily influenced by his writings as well as Thomas Aquinas.

    Also when refering to the teachings of The Church, Catholics tend to see them as coming from the Pope and Cardinals. The Orthodox see The Church as a consensus of everyone from the Fathers to all the Orthodox today led by the Holy Spirit of course. One thing that led me away from the RCC was the

    2 Peter 1:1-11 is our view of Salvation. Yes we are predestined and were are also told to make every effort to confirm our election, so I see it as a mix of Calvinism and RCC. After the schism the Western Churches got hung up on different on bits and pieces of scripture and couldn’t focus on the whole of it. Hell’s Unicorn described Orthodoxy view on soteriology as “primitive.” I couldn’t argue with that. The icons are our family album. The Orthodox way of venerating them is no different than the way we greet each other at Church because we are made in His image. Sometimes I think Orthodox tend to argue too much like Catholics, IMO.

    Here's a quick rundown: This is my understanding of the differences between RCs and EOCs. The EOC’s interpretations of scripture takes its roots from the Desert Fathers from the 1st few centuries. There is less of a legalistic and more mystical take. God is not narrowed down to judge, brother, creator etc. He is all that at once. John the Evangelist who reclined his head on Jesus’ chest at the Last Supper, fell to his face in awe and worship in his vision in the Book of Revelation.

    Fasting and works are not to fulfil a penance, it is to be closer to God (Actually your questioning about fasting led me to Orthodoxy from the RCC) My understanding of salvation is that I am saved, and my works are to unite me with God-- more to bend my will towards God's.

    I was an atheist, then RC, and now EOC. The discussions here helped lead me to the EOC. My first intro to Faith Alone was fellow Marines who had sex with anything and said they were save by FA. That's how I argued it. I think what finally got to me was when some RCs were trying to say the good thief was saved by an act of faith because they didn't want to say he was saved by faith. It wasgrace through faith, and that would have saved me hundred of argumentative posts.

I'm Done

by Christian Liberty on 07-27-2013 at 06:53 PM
I'm so sick of seeing "Support our troops" or even worse "Fighting for our freedoms."

During a trip to Word of Life for a week of camp I saw a bumper sticker that said "God bless our troops, especially our snipers."

Usually, when trying to prove a point about war, I don't discuss the troops. I'll probably continue to do this. One teacher I had was open minded to listening to what I had to say about war, but had a father who had served in
