PSSST: Only some of the money actually goes to farmers. Most of it goes to people who own land and won't farm it anyway. AKA, the rich.

No, I don't read sensational articles. I don't bother looking for links in said articles. Why? They are trash.

If someone wants to present an article to me, then present it as is, without the sensationalism.

I'm sorry I've been completely desensitized to sensational reporting and news. No, I'm not sorry, I'm just saying that to make you feel better.

Because I have stopped reading sensationalist media a LONG time ago. Try your indoctrination and propaganda somewhere else.

You're comparing Orthodox Christianity with the Puritan and Protestant religion that consumed the hearts of the American people. That's like comparing Tai-Chi with battle-hardened MMA warriors.

The puritans and protestants were burned at the stake, hunted and slaughtered. Western Europe fought a brutal, bloody war that made WWI look like a picnic, as entire towns were wiped off the map. Why? All because protestants decided they knew better than the pope.

Here in the US, the Christians have been persecuted non-stop for nearly a hundred years. Quietly they have persisted, much like the Christians who practiced their religion under the radar of the Roman persecutors, and they have forged strength you can't imagine.

It will be like a lion tearing through a forest full of lambs.

If you don't fear the military might and capacity to govern from the Christians in the US, you haven't been paying attention. We've already defeated the USSR and we're just about done defeating the CCP. We won WWI and WWII as well.

Satan himself will emerge from the pits of hell during the democratic party convention. As the delegates are slaughtered by his minions, he will announce "ORANGE MAN BAD!" and "FREE ABORTIONS FOR ALL!" To make his point he will tear a baby from the womb of one of the delegates and squash it on stage.

The delegates will all cheer and nominate him as their presidential candidate.

WAIT A MINUTE.. are you trying to tell me the reason why we have the right to bear arms is to overthrow the government should it exceed its stated purpose of defending individual rights?

Someone should write a document DECLARING their INDEPENDENCE from government or something!

Not for God-fearing Bible-thumping Americans.

We did it once, we'll do it again.

The lawless people, the ones who need to be governed, might have a difficult time during the transition, especially those who have a hard time with Jesus' commandment, "don't feed people who don't work." But when Christians band together, they are unstoppable. The Roman Empire couldn't survive them, neither will feudal warlords with shotguns.

Where the plates emerge there must also be plates going under. Unless you believe the earth is getting bigger over time.

Too many Christians think they are atheists.

Remember, God doesn't run around telling you to tell everyone how much you believe in him. He just wants you to trust in him and live your life rightly no matter what is happening around you. If you make a mistake, confess and forsake, and ask for forgiveness from God. What more can you do?

Prayer doesn't have to be real to be effective. We watch movies and read stories that we know are fake but they move our soul anyway. Prayers can do the same.

Honestly, buy what you think is most important to you. The economy will adapt.

  • If you need house work done, hire contractors.
  • If you need a new car, buy a car.
  • If your emergency funds are empty, just keep it in the bank.
  • If you don't know what to buy, put your money in the market, buy an index fund.

No matter what you do, it is going to end up creating jobs for everyone, and helping everyone get along a little better.

After slavery was banned and the Civil War won by the republicans (democrats lost, BTW), democrat women were wondering how they would take baths or do their hair without slaves to do it for them.

It was truly a tragic era to be alive.

I don't think the democrats have truly recovered yet.

Never forget. 6 millions is just for the Jews. The other 6 or so million were not Jews, but we're not supposed to count them.

Or the 100+ million who died due to socialism.

A bit of history...

The Founding Fathers tied votes to LAND. Each parcel of land = 1 vote, with families who owned more than one parcel of land getting only 1 vote.

Note: FAMILIES got votes, not individuals. Indeed, if you dig into the concept of "individualism" in the Founding Father's minds, it didn't mean anything like what we think of it today. What they called "individuals" we call "families."

The reason why Wyoming gave the women the right to vote was because they wanted to double the votes of the sheepherders. See, the sheep herders owned land, married and raised families, made fences, and their sheep would roam small areas. The cattle ranchers, however, were mostly single men who roamed around the plains and didn't like fences going up everywhere and were concerned they wouldn't be able to run as many cattle. The nature of the cattle business meant they had to move their herds, annually, all the way up to the nearest rail station and back, so fences were just bad for business.

Well, the sheepherders (my ancestors) decided that granting women the right to vote would make the sheepherders outvote the cattle ranchers, and they were right.

In hindsight, it introduced a new and wholly destructive philosophy contrary to the most basic teachings of Christianity, which says that neither the woman or man is complete without the other, and when the two join, nothing can separate them.

Indeed, I would recommend ANY of the following rather than our current system:

  1. Only married couples can vote. One ballot per couple. They must agree and both must sign the ballot.
  2. Only property owners can vote. One vote per owner, but they must own the property outright, not as part of a corporation. The effect would be married couples, which in most states are considered as an individual, would get 1 vote, but single people who are able to buy property would also get to vote. Renters would be out of luck, but there would be an incentive, at least, to own some land.
  3. Only net taxpayers can vote. Both the Romans and the Greeks had a system where people could only vote once they've produced a certain amount of wealth, and the more wealth you made, the more meaningful your vote was.
  4. Only people who do not collect government benefits or work for the government can vote.

Anyway, I think it's high time we started considering revisiting our suffrage system.

I'm sick of seeing all the women suffraging! How long can we idly stand by while we make women suffrage!

As time goes on, the number of Coronavirus deaths will DROP as each case is investigated and the cause of death is fully analyzed.

In Italy, only 12% of those who died with COVID-19 had no other pre-morbidity.

Yep. There's a lot of reason behind the idea keeping mercy and justice completely separate.
