Re: What sort of Ist are you?
LBJ and the Democrats are responsible for the breakup
of the black family. Black women could have all the kids
they wanted and the government would compensate
them. The only requirement was there not be a man
(husband, father) living in the home.
LBJ said at that time that this action would keep those
negroes voting Democrat for decades.
The number one predictor for poverty in a family is the
absence of the father.
Democrats claim to be the party for blacks, but evidence
doesn't bear this out.
Look at many of our major Democrat controlled cities.
I'm talking about cities that have been controlled by
Democrats for decades, without a Republican anywhere
in sight.
I'm talking about cities like Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland,
St. Louis, etc....
They resemble the old slave plantations.
What we see is broken families; run-down dilapidated
housing; and, a great deal of violence.
We also see blacks receiving stipends, which keeps
them dependent on the government (Democrats). But
they are never allowed to get ahead, which leads to
despair. These Democratic leaders made sure that
there is an absence of opportunity.
Trillions of dollars have allocated to these cities, but
they are worse off now than they were in the 60's.
The same thing can be said about Native Americans
living on reservations.
Democrat blame everything on racism. It serves their
purpose.
According to Democrats a white person who lives in
poverty is a result of his owns actions, or lack thereof.
A black who lives in poverty is always the result of
racism.
This craps comes froma political party that is too
ignorant to determine their own gender. And, from
a political party that fights for a doctor's right to
crush a helpless little baby's head as soon as it
is born.

Re: What sort of Ist are you?
You like Trump, don't you?
Of course, he is dedicated to The Beast. The same as so many of his fellow "true Christians".
And I'm certain that he is also enraged that Trump had lost the election, because that constitutes yet another failed "biblical prophesy." In order for the Beast to perform his evil tasks, he needs to be in a position of power. So by losing the election (and subsequently demonstrating what a really bigly loser he is) Trump has caused that prophesy to fail. And that really grinds at the craw of those "true Christians" who worship The Beast, as wickless obviously does.

Re: What sort of Ist are you?
Ever watch The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)? Charles Durning plays the Texas Governor whose big number is "The Sidestep":
With that little sidestep you just performed, you too could qualify as Governor of Texas. Though that would come with a very big down-side: you'd have to move to Texas.
To commiserate with you on that horrific prospect, within a few years I'll have to move to Florida. The extremely bizarre political landscape in Texas that we have all been observing (unless you're locked into the FOX bubble) is that Texas is desperately trying to out-Florida Florida.
 
My close friend of 14 years whom we lost two years ago, hailed from Texas, kind of. An Air Force brat all her life, her father retired to San Antonio while she was in high school, so she ran away to Southern California (well, during her childhood he was based at Norton AFB).
Over dinner one day, she told me about Gov. Rick Perry for the first that I had ever heard of him. Perry was Governor of Texas after G. Dubya Bush. We all know what the country though of Dubya's mental capacity ("dummy" comes to mind, though his facial expression of befuddlement is dwarfed by Tucker Carlson's just about all the time). She told me that, compared to Rick Perry, Texans took to referring to Bush as "the smart one."

Re: What sort of Ist are you?
Dwise 1, I am not enraged over anything. God commands
His follower to develop patience, self-discipline, and
self-control.
I have never said anything about Trump and prophecy.
I will say that under Trump our borders were much more
controlled than they are now. Gasoline cost half of what
it does now. And, countries that walk all over Biden did
not want to risk it with Trump.
Where were you when Democratic presidential candidates
Tried to outdo each other on who would get rid of fossil
fuel the quickest?
On the first day of Biden's presidency, he closed the
pipeline. It costs two to three times more to ship petroleum
by trucks than via the pipeline.
Also, he refused to renew oil leases; then he placed severe
restriction on those companies that still had leases. It
became unprofitable for them to drill.
When the price of petroleum began to skyrocket, he begged
Saudi Arabia to sell us more.
They laughed at him. Drill your own oil they said; you have
plenty.
Democrats say they want to get rid of fossil fuel to protect
the climate. But, get this: large oil tankers use 2000+ gallons
of fuel per hour. And, they take days to get here.
Biden didn't care. He merely wanted a way to lower prices
before the mid-term elections.
When the Saudis rejected his pleading, he starting releasing
our strategic reserves. This is theonly reason that prices
are coming down. He even sold a million barrels of our
SR to the Chinese.
If America ends up in a war we won't have any fuel to run
military weapons.
But, what does Biden care about military weapons. He
tucked his tail and ran dfrom Afghanistan, leaving these
terrorists with roughly 100 billion dollars of sophisticated
military weaponry.
God commands His followers to show respect to our
leaders, but sometimes it can be very difficult, especially
when they bring great harm to our nation.
Let me ask you something: do you think that it is okay
to slaughter our innocent little babies, even as they are
being born?
Do you think it is acceptable for teachers to talk to 4
and 5 years olds about gender. Their young minds are
very malleable. The DP believes it is acceptable to
give these little ones hormone therapy and puberty
blocking drugs.
But far worse is that doctors are allowed and even
encouraged to mutilate their little bodies.
Answer me, if you will. Do you think that this is
acceptable?
Texas and several border states are overwhelmed
by millions of illegal immigrants over the past
several years. If they complain they are called
racists or bigots.
When Democratic controlled cities receive just a
few hundreds of them they become furious.
Talk about hypocrites.
California wants to banish all fossil fueled car.
They want everyone to buy electric cars, even
though they are now experiencing power
outages.
The governor wants everyone to set summer
thermostats to 78 degrees. Also, he is asking
citizens to not use major appliances after
four p.m.
Many California residents are now using gas
powered generators to charge their car batteries.
Because of open border policies much of
California and several other Democratic
controlled states resemble third world countries.
These mentally challenged Democrats could not
care less about fentynal and other illegal drugs
entering through our porous border.
Democrats want to take away our guns, while
simultaneously getting rid of our police forces.
We will be left to the whims of the criminals.
Women are the most vulnerable among us. They
will increasingly become victims. I believe that
women should both purchase, practice, and
carry firearms.
I believe that all Democrats that want to outlaw
guns should have signs on their homes that
states "This is a gun free home."
Democrats claim that they want diversity, but not
when it comes to personal opinions. To them
everyone must become puppets and think how
Hollywood, the media, educational system, and
the Democrats demand we think.
It is becoming increasingly worse month after
month.

I agree with that. The United States is in big trouble. Our politicians are seeking short-term solutions to long-range problems. I never did like Trump and don't want him in power again. That being said, I think that Biden is a puppet. If Dems want to remain in power, they need to do much better than old Joe and two harpy women. (Kamala and AOC)

Re: What sort of Ist are you?
If you want to use biblical analogies, try this one:
1 John 2:18 writes:
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.
Now as to whether it is the "last hour" or not, a case can be argued either way. I would argue that antichrists can arise in both political parties and often do.

Re: What sort of Ist are you?
Tanyptery, I am happy to see that you agree there were racist,
Democratic _ _ _ holes. Byrd didn't switch. Thurmond did
not switch until the mid sixties.
There is much talk about reparations for blacks, regardless
of their ancestry.
If this comes to fruition, shouldn't Democrats be burdened
with an extra tax since they were the party of slavery.
If you are a Democrat let's see you apologize for the all
horrors of the Democratic Party.
The Democrats (especially the leaders) don't believe
that racism exists in modern America. They know it doesn't,
except for the media's loathing for white people, especially
against white males.
If you think that white privileges exists, or that systemic
racism exists, show us where.
The Democrats tell blacks that Republicans are the reason
that they lag behind. Without the black vote the DP would
cease to be. They would also fall into oblivion if the media
was fair and balanced.
The Docratic Party has always had victims and scapegoats.
That distinction now goes to whites.

Imagine you stay on topic and stop.posting your wackaloon financial ideas.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: What sort of Ist are you?
Phat, you mention the last days. The Bible teaches that
we are in the last days. And I'm not just talking about
prophetic signs.
Gen 2:2-3 "And on the seventh day God ended His work
which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day
from all the work which He had made.
"And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it He had rested from all His work..."
The Word "sanctified" in this case means that it was
sat aside as/with a purpose. The purpose is both for
this present age and the age to come.
Notice carefully that no work (God allows for certain
exceptions, depending on one's motives) was to be
done on the seventh day Sabbath.
Also notice that all seven days of creation week are
exactly the same length of time, down to the last
The Apostle Peter makes an important statement in
2 Peter 3:8 "But beloved, be not ignorant of this one
thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as on day.
Can this verse have several meanings? Absolutely.
And, they can be true at the same time.
Read also Psalms 90:4.
Revelations 20:2 states that at the ti.e God set up His
Kingdom that Satan will then be bound for !thousand
Years.
Revelations 20: 4 says that those whom God called out
down through the ages would then be resurrected as
members of the God family. They will rule with Christ in
His Kingdom for one thousand years.
The rest of the dead (everyone others than those who
were elected to a position in God's Kingdom) remain
dead during this 1000 years.
Hebrews 4: 9 "There remains therefore a rest to the
people of God.
"Rest" is from 4520 Strong's. The word is Sabbath.
A correct wording of Hebrews 4:9 is "There remains
therefore a rest to the people of God.
While it is true that we don't know the day nor the
hour of Christ's return, we can know when it in nigh.
Hebrews 10:25 "Not forsaking thr assembling of
ourselves together,...but exhorting one another: and
so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
If the seventh day Sabbath is a 1000 years long, then
so are the other six days. It would make absolutely no
sense to assume differently.
God's allowing humans 6000 years to try every form of
government that we can dream up. At the same time
Satan is still the God of this world/age.
At the end of these 6000 years God will have to intervene
or we will destroy ourselves completely.
He will then show us His way in His Kingdom.
He gave us a glimpse of what it would be like in His
Kingdom when he healed the sick; raised the dead;
and fed the hungry.
Those humans who are still alive when Christ sets up
His Kingdom will then receive God's Holy Spirit, and be
taught God's ways by the elect/firstfruit.
At the end of the 1000 years the elect, plus all those
who became members of the family of God during
that time will then teach those in the second
resurrection.
In the second resurrection the book of life will be opened
to them.
Remember this is a resurrection to judgement, not a
resurrection to sentencing. They will be judged from
that point forward. Christ's death for our sins buys
them this resurrection.
All who has ever lived from day one of creation will
then receive their opportunity to become a member
of the family of God.
God is no respecter of person. We will all receive
equal opportunity.

Yes - but an exact mathematical equivalence is not one of them. For example, if the six days of creation was exactly six thousand years, then that really messes up Bishop Ussher's calculations.

It's all wrong, I'm feeling lost like I just don't belong.
Give me back, give me back my Leningrad."
-- Leningrad Cowboys
