    Everyone has bias; do Christian historiographers lie? I think you're equivocating, because you know what's coming. I've been there too.

    I liked his shows for his stories, accent, and the shit he gives other conservatives. None of the Neocons like him, yet he likes Neocons? I think its because he's the purest Trotskyist in radio, which means they must break a sweat performing mental gymnastics to avoid him. Being a Neocon is soooo awkward.

    Miami Beach wants to fire employees for not going to work two days after Hurricane Irma Two days after Hurricane Irma swept over South Florida, triggering the largest evacuation effort in Florida’s history and leaving behind a morass of debris in the streets and widespread power outages, Miami Beach City Hall expected some of its employees to come to work. When some of those government workers couldn’t make it back to the island on time, the city’s response was simple: Threaten to fire them. About 100 employees have received letters outlining the city’s intent to fire them after they didn’t report to work Sept. 12, less than 48 hours after Irma’s outer bands hit the Beach. The letters are rattling the city’s rank and file employees and even supervisors who were under the impression employees simply needed to stay in touch with their bosses as city operations returned to normal.

    The victors do write the history books but sometimes we get to hear the losers side as well, and sometimes the victors were right, and even biased history can give us some truth to be gleaned. In any case it is clear that sometimes things go better and sometimes things go worse, that is the way of everything in the universe.

    It does have ups and downs, right and wrong exist as objective standards, but those who recorded history did not necessarily view or record it accurately.

    Pakistan refuses to be a "scapegoat" for Afghanistan's bloodshed or to fight wars for others, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi told the United Nations on Thursday. Addressing the UN General Assembly, Abbasi did not explicitly criticize US President Donald Trump's new strategy on Afghanistan but made clear his displeasure with the renewed onus on Pakistan. "Having suffered and sacrificed so much due to our role in the global counter terrorism campaign, it is especially galling for Pakistan to be blamed for the military or political stalemate in Afghanistan," Abbasi said. "We are not prepared to be anyone's scapegoat," he said. "What Pakistan is not prepared to do is to fight the Afghan war on Pakistan's soil. Nor can we endorse any failed strategy that will prolong and intensify the suffering of the people of Afghanistan and Pakistan and other regional countries," he said. Abbasi said that 27,000 Pakistanis have been killed by extremists since the launch of the US war on terror after the September 11, 2001 attacks. He called for a priority on eliminating extremists, including from the Islamic State group and Al-Qaeda, in Afghanistan but ultimately a political solution with the Taliban. https://www.yahoo.com/news/pakistan-tells-un-wont-scapegoat-afghan-war-014406807.html

    As Trump campaigns for Strange in Alabama, he expresses some doubtsPresident Trump campaigned on Friday night for Alabama Senate candidate Luther Strange, in a race that has pitted him against his most loyal supporters and that holds the potential to upend the political dynamics for Republicans facing election in 2018. The endorsement of ‘Big Luther’ could prove to be a big boost for the interim Alabama senator, who is trailing his opponent, former state judge Roy Moore, in some public polls. But even Trump seemed unsure that the endorsement was the right move. “I’ll be honest, I might have made a mistake,” Trump told the crowd at one point during his more than 30 minutes of remarks. “If Luther doesn’t win they’re not going to say, we picked up 25 points in a short period of time,” he added, referring to the media. “If his opponent wins, I’m going to be here campaigning like hell for him.” After some musing, he seemed to catch himself. “Luther will definitely win,” Trump said. It may not have been exactly the ringing endorsement Strange’s campaign had hoped for, but it would have to do. “We have to be loyal in life,” Trump said. “He never went quid pro quo, he just treated me great. “And I’m calling him. He was down like quite a bit and I said I’m going to endorse you,” Trump continued. “I shouldn’t be doing it … The last thing I want to do is be involved in a primary.”

    OK. The burden of proof lies on the accused, those barbarians, to prove they weren't bloodthirsty savages. Wee, peace-loving Christianity dindu nuffin, they're just de facto superior. Unfortunately, there's nobody to speak for the accused now, because their religion is concealed under Christian revisionism and only survives in syncretic verse. This Cadaver Synod is hereby adjourned.

    The latest report from the American Action Forum (AAF), which has been tracking President Trump’s promise to deregulate American businesses, continues to be upbeat. In April it had found that the repeal or delay of regulations imposed during the Obama administration could lead to $86 billion “in net fiscal effects” for taxpayers as a result. The latest from AAF said that the trend downward in regulations and upward in freedom from them continues apace. In July the Washington Post counted 860 regulations that the Trump administration was either pulling or suspending, and then included commentary from anti-Trump liberals that these rollbacks “will leave American workers, consumers and children vulnerable on a daily basis,” quoting Amit Narang with the pro-regulatory group Public Citizen’s Congress Watch Division. But it will also leave them with more jobs and more money in their pockets. During the Obama administration, more than 22,700 regulations were imposed on Americans, costing them “more than $120 billion each and every year,” according to Heritage Foundation Fellow Diane Katz. Executive Order 13771, issued by the President Trump in April, was explicit: “Whenever an executive department or agency … promulgates a new regulation, it shall identify at least two existing regulations to be repealed,” adding, “The heads of all agencies are directed that the total incremental cost of all new regulations … shall be no greater than zero.” The effect, even before implementation, was felt almost immediately. In August the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) noted that its Small-Business Optimism Index reached 105.3, the highest since 2006 and an 11-percent jump since the week before Trump was elected. The NFIB called it a “relief rally” because businesses “did not get another four years of costly federal regulations which increased the hold of government on the private sector. The Congressional Record is nearly empty compared to years of record new and changed regulations posted for the past eight years.” The Obama administration shouldn’t get all the blame. Although it imposed 685 “major” rules — rules that cost at least $100 million to implement — under the George W. Bush administration there were 505 similar rules implemented by the regulatory state. For all of 2016, federal regulations, according to the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), burdened the economy to the tune of $2 trillion or about 10 percent of the country’s total economic output. That burden is placed squarely on the backs of taxpayers, even if they don’t know it, in the form of higher prices. Per family, those regulations cost $15,000 every year. There’s another cost of the regulatory state: It slows the economy by nearly one percent every year. That doesn’t sound like much, but when the economy struggles to grow by two percent, the regulatory state has cut growth by 50 percent. Put another way, the economy, and paychecks, would be significantly larger without the heavy hand of the regulatory state slowing it down. The Mercatus Center said that, without those regulations, the economy would be 25 percent larger than it currently is, and that paychecks would be $13,000 a year higher on average.

    Europeans reached their highest point of civilization (nowhere near perfection) under Christianity, their fall into depravity has exactly coincided with their snowballing rejection of it. And yes the pagans were barbaric bloodthirsty savages. I will not respond further than this because I don't want to have a fight with you about religion, I obviously disagree with you but that is between you and whichever powers of heaven are real. (It is obvious which I believe in)

    Didn't ask for your sympathy. Barbaric? And you've got 1600 years of civilization, that shows me Europe's better for Christianity? "A hindrance to civilization" yet I see Christian civilization has no idea where it's going nor what Christianity even means. A Tower of Babel indeed.
