TexTech Free

First off, my screen name. I am a Texan working in a technical field. I did NOT attend Texas Tech. I went to a real university in Texas. Born and grew up in Houston, then spent about 24 years in Austin, back to Houston, and then in Indiana, first time to live outside of Texas. Back to Austin ten years and now 26 months (as of late August, 2021) in Miami, FL. Work keeps me moving around. I am now on my way to North Carolina. While only living in three states, I have passed through or visited 35-40 of the lower 48 states. I have missed the Big Sky country (Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana) and upper New England states. As should be obvious from my comments, I am a yellow dog Democrat with views on social justice based on the teachings of all the great religious teachers. I love music of most types. Not opera. I can tolerate some C&W. Have heard very little rap I can tolerate. My music is traditional Blues and 60s-70s rock. Also like classical and easy listening.

    As a matter of fact, I have read the Bible through cover to cover (even those long boring genealogies) five times and in four different translations. Plus I have taken one year courses in both the Hebrew and Christian scriptures.

    But what does my knowledge of the Bible have to do with hearing Trump compared to some divine “saving” figure? This is happening even if I don’t know what a Bible is. Meanwhile, please point me at some LWNJ posts that claim Biden as some kind of divinity. Is Biden helping the country? Yes. Does this somehow make him worthy of worship? No! But it sure makes me appreciate his constructive work more than the destruction wrought by his predecessor.

    The shallowness of your response shows your lack of understanding. Always remember that traitors always stand, recite the pledge, sing The National Anthem, and join in any prayers. So do these external actions prove the traitor in his heart is in fact a patriot? Going through the motions proves nothing. Failing to go through the motions likewise means nothing.

    As for respect, I respect our justice system, especially when it it working. Right now I am going through chemotherapy and if I had to be in court a couple of days after treatment, I might very well not be able to stand due to the side effects of the treatment. Does this mean I don’t respect the court? Of course not. External factors you cannot begin to know about are the reason why and has nothing to do with how much respect I have for the courts.

    It must feel good to stand in your world and pass judgement on others and decide who is partiotic and who is not. You hardly have the wisdom of Solomon much less the total knowledge of God. Remember, judge not lest ye be judged!

    Interesting that you should suggest anyone worships Biden. I do not recall ever hearing anyone refer to him as a Saviour or the incarnation of God on Earth. I have however heard such blasphemous terms used of Trump. We “ignorant rubes” have a respect for and knowledge of our Christian faith that prevents us from doing such a thing. Replacing Jesus with Trump is a gross distortion of anything and everything The Bible and Christianity is about.

    Weatherford must not read the news. At least not credible news. President Biden has made it abundantly clear that he is taking no interest and has no involvement with what the DOJ is doing in the investigation of his son. The President has stated it is completely hands off as regards his son’s investigation. Too bad Weatherford failed to pick that up somewhere along the way.

    Polls don’t vote. People do. And just as some people say they do not favor abortion bans in a poll, they still pull the R lever when they get in the voting booth. Thus they vote against what they tell pollsters. Disapproval of Biden does not equate to not voting for him.

    That is what I would like to ask some of these people? What is your ultimate endgame here? It seems to be absolute power even if they don’t have a clue what they want to do with it if they ever get it (and God help us if they do).

    Could you point me to anything to back up your assertion that Biden has guaranteed Iran nuclear weapons? And please, I would prefer a reference to a somewhat mainstream source rather than some right-wing think tank.

    You would think after numerous previous Republican caused government shutdowns that the Republicans would know there is no political gain from the shutdown. In fact, it has usually hurt them at the polls at the next election. Why? Because it screws up the economy and takes some time (and maybe pain) to straighten out.

    Somehow it seems James Comer and/or Jim Jordan are still looking for those receipts. So far all they have is a bunch of paperwork that proves a lot of money moved around but nothing says it came or went illegally to any member of the Biden family. Please try to stick to the proven facts please instead of the talking points intended to distract from the actual crimes of TFG.

    You may need to read what you wrote. The operative word in there is “opportunities” which is very different from the absolute bans being passed in red-state legislatures. No one is forced to have a surgery if they don’t want it. However, getting an abortion, even one to save the life of the mother is prohibited in some states. They are not the same thing by a country mile.
