Re: The Green New Deal

“The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all. Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” - Saikat Chakrabarti link I think of it as how can we most quickly turn America...

John 6:28 Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.”

Re: Figuring Out Religion

Do you try to justify yourself? https://www.lhm.org/dailydevotions/default.asp?date=20190711 Did you ever ask a question so messed up it not only wasn't right, it wasn't even wrong? That's what I see happening with the lawyer who decided to test Jesus. "Teacher," he asks, "What shall I do to inherit...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Nike pulls ‘Betsy Ross flag’ sneaker after Colin Kaepernick says it was offensive I guess the American Flag is now a symbol of racism among the woke crowd. ??? Oh, even the modern flag is considered a fascist symbol by them. This is 2018, but I was linked back to it when I was looking at kriegs' po...

Re: Tech Help Needed

Darn. The two posts above illustrate while I’ll never have a linux or bsd box as my primary computer. A tinkerer can. A mechanic can have a British car at home. I can do neither. That made me laugh ... and fondly remember driving a 1958 MGA - when I was a young tinkerer, way before Linux. O0 I only...

I have been using Opera for several years. Faster, lighter weight and based on Chromium so it feels similar to Chrome. You can even install Chrome extensions after installing an add-on. Also has a built-in, free VPN.
I've had quite good success with Firefox, Safari and Nord VPN.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I didn't mean it personally or towards you as a whole, but merely towards that assertion. Apology accepted? :) I see where you are coming from, for the record I'm not a big Trump fan either. To be more precise in my comment, the standard narrative thing drives me nuts and shapes perceptions sometim...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I'll jump in too. I do not think of the "great divide" in our country so much as left vs. right, but of those focused on self vs. those at least somewhat focused on helping others - but offering the help as a "hand up" not a "hand out". I pretty much could care less who is in political power positio...
