Im guessing about a third of the countries in this world we would not even be able to voice our opinions argue or discuss like we do on this site. We need to be thankful find some common ground with the center and not the far right or left or things will never get straight.

The elected officials may only save you if your too big to fail. Might stand a better chance with a go fund me account, lol.
I remember Willie Nelson trying to save as many homes he could, but the problem was too big for even him. The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming, and they came. Not to buy food, but the soul of the country.

The poor people are not the cause, just the noise. God must like them or he wouldn't have made so many. The church used to be the welfare system and with that they had alot of power. You either agreed to their ways or you would be excommunicated. Which today may seem no big deal, but then you was basically cut off from the living. If you was old and broken, or young and deserted you was in dire straits. Welfare has always been a hot political item. Stephen got stoned to death over that very thing. Even after all this time the poor are still with us.

I heard a story about a rich guy out driving one Saturday looking all his holdings over. He admired his big fields full of the best herd of cows in the county, and that timber was the best ever, those oil wells that didn't hardly need pumps for they flowed on their own. He thought, oh how rich I am. Then just before he got back to his mansion and passed by a little 10 acre patch where a crazy old religious fanatic lived. There was the old man sitting at a make do table praying. He thought he would stop and be friendly. He had been wanting that 10 acres for years, to make his many sections all complete. He interuped the old man and asked him what he was doing, he said he was just asking a blessing over his meager meal. Then in conversation the old man said he had a dream last night that the richest man in the county would die tonight. After the short conversation the rich guy sped off in his cadilac, thinking the old man was crazy but he had made predictions before and some had come true. Just to be safe he invited his doctor friend to come and spend the night with him. They played cards all night and as the sun come up the doctor left. The rich guy thought to himself the crazy old man was just that and that he was a fool just listening to him. In a few minutes the doctor returned and told the rich guy that his neighbor had died last night and he just found him dead on the porch. If you have God for a friend to trust in the good times and bad then you truely are rich!

How many times do we witness the stone throwing and the truth fallen in the streets, then go on our merry way to where the dog returns to the vomit and the sow to the mire?

I agree that we are fortunate to live in a country such as ours,but as far as the ability to voice conservative thought,that type of free speech is waning.Throughout social media conservative thought is being edited out of the vernacular. Algorithms being used to squelch any arguments contrary to the lefts positions.Bots being used to deceive a viewer as to how many (likes) a progressive liberal has attained. And then there is this. Why wasn't this guy arrested on disorderly conduct ?

And I'm just as guilty . I hear a Democrat and immediately see Antifa, socialists, PETA, and others.



No

Democrats and Republicans still get along. I have a bunch of Democrat friends. They don't vote Democrat anymore because the Democratic party has been hijacked by communist! Can't have a rational discussion With an ideology that contradicts everything you believe in and stand for.

The truth has little to do with the outcome in a courtroom, if you have a lawyer that works on the truth most folks would be screwed!

We're not losing our country. We've lost it.
Rant over.



Didn't their income allow them to buy at least some kind of healthcare?
This happens more often than Americans want to believe but asking for something to be done about it labels one as a socialist. I guess a "good" conservative takes the position: Pay up, don't get sick, or die-it's all free choice.

No, asking the goverment to pay for everything labels one as a socialist. There are plenty of other options.

Isn't getting sick or accident then asking for help a little different than expecting it up front. If someone prays a silent prayer for help with something and someone shows up on their door step with the answer should he refuse it.
The people may have refused to get hooked up on the "program" simply because they didn't want Obumer care. Hind sight is 20/20.

A guy was in a flood and was on top of his porch and a boat came by, but he refused help and said God was going to save him. Then the water rose and the guy went to the housetop and another boat came by, but again he refused and said God was going to save him, the water rose more and the guy went up the tv tower and still another boat came by and he refused. Then he drowned and went to heaven and asked God why he let him drown and he said " fool I sent 3 guys after you"

I'm thinking charity has a different meaning when we refuse to work and expect the gov to school, feed, clothe, house, free phones, and on and on.
Charity in the church can get complicated too may be why its in the governments hands.

Personally I had the chance to give to a mother and two teenagers at the counter at a grocery store but I saw all three put their cigarettes out before going in. I don't know Gods feelings on that, maybe I shorted myself a blessing. Had I gave it to them and they misused it, it would have been on them not me.

Some of us was taught that charity begins at home. St. Paul taught that if you don't work , you don't eat.
