"Then Jesus said to them, 'Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.' And they were amazed at him." -- Mark 12:17 (NIV) I take this as an implied command to keep politics and religion separate. Nothing good can happen when the two are mixed. Yup. In three of the gospe...

Still want to be in this precarious position at age 42? 45? 49? 53? I'd seriously start working on improving your situation. Either for a higher position in Home Depot, or gain more knowledge about the tools, or truck and fork lift tickets, or something in another industry. If not, this will be the ...

You've got broke pensioners who were convinced to give their last coin to multi-millionaire televangelists who own their own jets and mansions. You have women who are convinced by their pastors to side with the political Right who want to strip women of bodily autonomy. The plot of the movie 'The Bo...

Not surprising. On the one hand you have prosperity churches that are all about money. But on the other hand, you've got a cultural shift resulting in the decline of church attendance. So if your church attendance drops from a hundred tithe payers down to three broke pensioners, then yes, you'll con...

Nobody born in another country, eg Thailand, even if they are a citizen, will be put forward as a candidate. Think of the effort put in to discredit Obama, and he was born in America. At this stage in the game, they can't afford to go through that again, but with a citizen who actually was born in a...

What it comes down to me isn't the extra years, but how I'll live them. Assume I'd normally live to one hundred years old. Somebody says, 'Castrate now and live to be one hundred and twenty'. That's great, if I'm as fit and mobile as, and have the mental acuity of a sixty-five year old. But not much...

There are ancient monuments in Celtic Europe, that have inscriptions along the lines of 'Biggus Dickus erects this statue in fulfillment of a vow for the healing of his wife Cavernious Vag...' (the last bit tragically broken off, so we'll never know her full name). The point being, they accepted the...

I help others. I do the scout working be and I'm their cleaner. I help others in various little ways. I quite like helping others. But I just feel powerless at helping or advancing myself, and I kinda resent that.

Thankyou. Those are both good ideas. Part time will add to the pot without risking the benefits, and cash in hand could do the same.

I'm a middle aged male who adopted a liking for pink. It started when I applied for a debit card and was given an option on which color it would be. I figured white could get too dirty, and didn't like the few other options for various reasons. Pink was the least problematic. Then I had to get a new...

I have several interests that are almost lifelong. And one that I'm only just now starting to think of in that way. I'm several months off turning 57, living in a small town of 2000, on disability (ASD), haven't worked in a decade, and I can't turn off thinking about working again. The sane thing to...

Exactly. MTG also started impeachment efforts on day one of Biden's term, before he ever had a chance to do anything impeachable.
QMAGAnon are a joke. Unfortunately they are very dark humour.

Trump's probably upset that he can't plant hecklers in the audience again, and upset that the microphones will be cut at the end of allotted speaking times. In other words, they'll be real debates, with real debate formats. Trump has never done well under those conditions. Biden has.

It might not be a bad move for Trump. At the moment you have extreme ends and a lot of fuzzy people in the middle. I'm sure that a lot of moderate Republicans will vote for Trump because they've always voted Republican. But I think Trump knows that this situation is changing. As the election cycle a...
