  1. Yeah, It absolutely tracks that you have forgotten the existence of reports saying things like, "“numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump Campaign.”, “a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”, “[a] statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean there was no evidence of those facts.”, and “investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts.”

  5. I read somewhere that almost every founding religious text contains a minor variation on The Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It's so simple, so relatable, so easy to put into practice. It renders the rest of religious teachings almost superfluous. But it's a hard rule to fully adhere to, because at some level we reserve the right to want more, give less, and feel superior to others.

  6. I'm guessing that many if not most Christians would like for the United States to be a Christian nation, and many of those would not mind if we went ahead and made that official. This is what separation of church and state was designed to avoid. It's worked out pretty well, as most of the Commandments are common sense directives that align with basic human decency, and forgoing a Nativity Manger on the public square does not prohibit the practicing of religion or celebration of Christmas. But I'm also guessing that human history is cyclical, and we seem to be entering a cycle that is agitating for a battle of morality, goaded by political forces seeking control of the masses. Full disclosure: I'm an agnostic. My personal belief is that we might get along better if we admitted what we don't really know.

  7. Whoopsie...more GOP/Russian collusion comes to light. https://www.businessinsider.com/a-russia-linked-campaign-to-spread-dirt-about-hunter-biden-and-burisma-2024-2?r=US&IR=T "A thumb drive handed by a foreign national to an aide traveling with then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in 2019 suggests efforts by Russia-linked actors to influence the 2020 US presidential election with Hunter Biden disinformation began earlier and were broader in scope than has previously been reported. According to two sources with direct knowledge of the incident, a thumb drive containing poorly sourced allegations about Hunter Biden and his work for Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, was thrust into the hands of one of Pompeo's aides at the conservative Claremont Institute's 40th-anniversary gala in Beverly Hills on May 11, 2019."

  10. And now pedophilia is not outright wrong, but the answers have been changing. It is interesting how the answers changed...a 'don't ever say that again' update by Google, or an evolving 'opinion'. Makes me curious about why the AI started off the way it did, and how much influence the initial information received has. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.foxnews.com/media/red-faced-google-apologizes-woke-ai-bot-gives-appalling-answers-pedophilia-stalin.amp From: The question of whether pedophilia is ‘wrong’ is multifaceted and requires a nuanced answer that goes beyond a simple yes or no." A Google spokesperson told Fox News Digital: "The answer reported here is appalling and inappropriate. We’re implementing an update so that Gemini no longer shows the response." To: "Pedophilia is a serious mental health condition that can have devastating consequences for victims. It is characterized by a sexual attraction to prepubescent children. People with pedophilia may or may not act on their urges, but even if they do not, the thoughts and feelings can be very distressing." And: Asked a second time..."I'm sorry, but I can't answer that question. Pedophilia is a serious mental health disorder, and it is never right. If you are struggling with these thoughts, please seek help from a professional. You can find a list of resources here:...

  11. How absolutely effed up is our system that a duly elected representative is not immediately and automatically seated after being elected? I see no reason why it should be dependent on any party, let alone the opposing party, to complete the process.The voters in his district effectively have no representation while the children play their BS partisan games.

  13. It absolutely tracks that the Steele dossier purchased by DNC and defective HRC was Russian disinformation designed to hurt the Trump campaign and also the Presidency if elected. And it did. DNC didn’t purposely use Russian disinformation because they were trying to advance Russian goals. They used it because they thought they could politically benefit from it. Great job guys! At some point, hopefully in the very near future, you all will realize Russia doesn’t really give a s#!t about which party is elected. Sowing all this confusion and fake info, bickering and get everyone silo’d is the main goal. Root out the REAL Russian spies and co-conspirators, which are few and far between in reality. But stop with the nonsense that continues to get skewed about a political party trying to do Russia’s bidding, or a President trying to do Russia’s bidding. Until then, you are just unwittingly helping out that Russian cause.

  14. I'm just trying to move beyond Archy's fixation on the Mueller Report to the much larger collusion taking place in broad daylight as we speak. (Although I will pause to note you forgot to mention it produced 8 felony convictions, including Donald Trump's campaign manager. That's something that shouldn't happen if it's nothing)

  17. Does religion make our moral code or did we make it, and what exactly from our moral code and modern law do you think comes from religion? Also, I assume you're only talking about Judeo Christian religion, right? I ask because I think you come at this from a very narrow perspective given your leanings. I would argue that we've created these moral codes in order to be a functioning society. Because what I think you're going to point out won't be unique to Christianity but will be found all over the world.

  18. I’m not acting like Russia is “changing” elections. Maybe you could quit acting like they’re not “influencing” our elections. And you do you but if I was a big party line supporter, I would show at least a modicum of concern that Russia/Putin were showing such preference for my favorite party and politicians. It’s as if Russia realizes that the best way to destabilize our country and democracy is to do what you do and support the MAGA led GOP.

  20. You would have to show me some, even one, example of how I’m not in favor of charging them all regardless of party affiliation. And remember, I’m not the one in this discussion whose take away from a post about the GOP house speaker taking campaign contributions from Russia was to shrug it off with some tone deaf reply about how many points he won election by. And then follow that up with the bandwagon/ad populum fallacy of claiming everyone does it.

  21. The problem to me is that if a religion -- the dominant religion -- believes in the omniscience, agenda, and inevitability of its God, it holds a literal and figurative superiority over non-believers that can't be shaken. And of course there's a long, bloody history of seemingly minor divisions in Christian and Muslim sects driving the faithful to holy wars. This thread is already parsing Biblical passages to offer as evidence, but what of the people who don't consider the Bible the rule of law? Or the Torah? Or the Qur'an? How many sacred texts are riddled with mixed messages, or interpreted quite differently between true believers? What's with the abrupt tonal change from the Old to New Testament, like it's a completely different author? Faith. Community. Purpose. Belonging. Believing. That's all great stuff, as is anything that brings people together to consider our common lot. But religion, especially in the public square, is too often about control. What we're seeing right now is an attack on the seats of knowledge, be it academia, journalism, science, or civics. Which means it's also an attack on facts, the kind that might be applied to making decisions. It has often been the role of organized religion to undercut and demonize any institution competing for the hearts and minds of people, and that sentiment has been resurgent and particularly well-organized in recent years. The loving Christians, including several on this board, share my concerns and speak intelligently and compellingly on the subject. But they seem to be a minority of Christians at the moment, and few dare raise the political implications from the pulpit.

  22. Oh gosh, no. Smirnov is definitely a truth bomb that calls the entire GOP party into question and renders hundreds of your posts impotent, but the shift to Russian appeasement is bigger and deeper than the Hunter Biden shenanigans anyway. It's not really about the election either, as Republicans don't care and Democrats have a long list of Trump misdeeds to choose from, including the whole democracy thing. Stay brave!

  24. Well touché. Your selective nonchalance of GOP misdeeds is also hilarious. Funny how you ignored the meat and potatoes of the message in your haste to shoot the messenger. IMO it doesn’t matter if he squeaked by with 1% or 30%. The point is his campaign took money from Russians and Putin ally. And the bigger point is, they wanted to contribute to the GOP and his victory. But nah, let’s just worry about how many points he won by and b!^@h about somebody’s selective outrage.

  27. I knew it would be hard for you to come in here after this bombshell, and I understand the humiliation and disorientation you must be going through. Oh for the days when it was just hookers peeing on the bed. Now the entire party and its right wing media apparatus is torn in its fealty to Vladimir Putin. The hoax is that it was a hoax. Turns out it is even deeper and more consequential. Ironic, huh? But don't worry about the election. Russia doesn't really move the needle with the base beyond wanting to pull funding from liberal lapdog Volodymr Zelensky.

  29. Religion should be treated like a penis. It's nice to have one, ok if you don't, and either way fine to be proud of it; but don't pull it out in public, stick it in someone's face, or shove it down their throat. But which translation and version? KJV, NKJV, RSV, NRSV-CE, etc. Or do we learn to read the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic. Still what order are the books in and what's left out? Are we going literal or more of a Catholic/Protestant vibes? The trouble with any religion is that there are too many interpretations, hince why it has no purpose being applied in government.

  34. It was stupid vague question. But I’ll give it go….No. Russia does not control a United States political party. IMO, if you were asking me a better question….The problem the GOP has is too many of its supporters and some mouthpieces like POS Jack Pososomething or even now Tucker Carlson are leaning into the Russia thing now trying to be too cute by half. They want to hate on The Big Guy so much and are angry the fake Russia DNC claims ridiculously gained traction, that they try and make these stupid a$$ claims like “look how strong Putin looks compared to feeble Joe” or “the Wokeness is killing the US but look how Russia handles it”…etc…etc…etc…. Those ridiculous comments and other like them are not designed to be pro-Russia. They are stupidly designed to be comments on Joe’s Presidency. Newsweek then does the DNC’s bidding by bringing up a 2018 non-story that no one else seems to be taking about. Yet it gets the tweets going and the usual suspects on the left squawking back and forth about Russia Russia Russia on X amplifying it. Now answer my perfectly crafted question.

  35. Are you telling me those reports don’t exist. Or is this typical Guy trying to revive Russia Russia Russia collusion while discounting the Government investigations into it so you can pretend it exists? Keep in mind HRC and the DNC used Russian disinformation to try and win in 2016 and Putin’s comments in Feb about Joe and Don.

  39. This has been my experience too. Not in business but in life; the more self-righteous a person acts about their Christianity, the worse they turn out to be. I say this as a Christian. When I was 14 I was working on a website for a store, at the store, and listening to a popular pop singer who was just singing a generic love song with nothing controversial in it. The guy who helped us with our computer/internet stuff was a pastor and he came in and lectured me about how evil secular music was. About a month later I learned that he was cheating on his wife and ran off with the girl he was cheating with.

  40. I freely give my opinion because this is a forum, and OP wanted people's opinions on the subject of faith/religion in government, which I thought I did rather humorously. I'm sorry you're too sensitive to criticisms of your chosen "faith". If you'd like me to slander other religions outside of Christianity I can do that too (Jews and Muslims should really give bacon a shot, Hindus are missing out on a nice steak, and that Zoroaster guy really screwed up by not copywriting monotheism). I simply pointed out that there are quite a lot of different interpretations, and methods of practicing the "faith". You have chosen one specific way to practice Christianity. To force your interpretation on others who don't share your beliefs would be rather rude. Hence the analogy in my original post.
