    My daughter is very conservative and very interested in politics and this election will be her first chance to vote. I told her I may not vote for Trump and she asked if that meant I was going to vote for Clinton.

    I said “Candidate A is evil. Candidate B is more evil. Now go vote for a candidate who is not evil.”

    She wasn’t sure what I meant and I said if you choose the lesser of two evils, you are still choosing evil.

    Thank you, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.

    Maybe you’re being facetious. But there are lots of people who call themselves Christians (I know you’re not one) who were taught in Sunday school that Galileo was killed by the Catholic Church. I see it every time Galileo’s name is mentioned.

    blinknight, I don’t know if you are just being ornery because you want to argue, or if you have a real reading comprehension issue.

    You provided a link that says Galileo was found guilty of heresy for saying the heliocentric theory was a fact. That’s exactly what I said in my original post.

    Maybe you misunderstood my point.

    I disagreed with the part in parentheses that says Galileo turned out to be correct. He wasn’t correct, because the heliocentric theory at that time said that the sun was the center of the universe. We all know that not to be true and Galileo couldn’t prove it for obvious reasons.

    There is nothing in my post that is incorrect.

    No, but I’d wear a chip in a ring to replace my keys and credit cards. Just as long as I could remove it when I wanted.

    Do you know why its call the theory of evolution?

    Because its a theory.

    Let me guess, you have greater spiritual insight than the apostles, disciples, Apostolic fathers, the Church and the magesterium because you have a bible that they wrote, compiled and gave to you.

    There are letters on your screen (under my name) arranged in such a manner that they say “…he was found guilty of heresy and sentenced to house arrest.”

    If you think you have facts that are different you should probably keep them to yourself. Because they are actually opinions.

    “…Galielo Galilei, who was jailed by church leaders for defending his heliocentric theory (which turned out to be correct).”

    Not really. Galileo didn’t couldn’t prove the heliocentric theory but instead of saying it was a theory, he said it was a fact. Theologians didn’t want a layman telling them the bible wasn’t true. He was good friends with Pope Urban VIII who told him he could study and write papers on the subject as arguments for and against his theory, but not as fact.

    For some reason, Galileo publicly mocked his friend by writing a satirical paper implying it was written by the pope. If he had stuck to science he wouldn’t have had a problem, but because he mocked the Pope and claimed a theory as fact (Galileo was wrong by the way, the Sun is not the center of the universe) he was found guilty of heresy and sentenced to house arrest.

    Now bring on the people who say Galileo was tortured and killed.

    He’s lucky they punch like girls.

    That doesn’t make any sense. Can you explain that?

    The dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord. (1 Thess. 4:16–17)

    Poll not “polls.” Only Rasmussen shows Trump in the lead by 2 points. When you average in the other six polls Clinton beats Trump by 10 points.

  • [3] May 2, 2016 at 8:15pm

    Trump can’t beat Hillary. All the polls say so.

    The only way Trump wins is if Clinton’s past catches up to her before the election.

    Germany has at least one major memorial that I know of, a U-boat memorial for WWI and WWII vets. Small towns in Germany have their own small memorials to their war dead. They honor all dead, civilian and military, since unlike the US, virtually everyone in Germany was involved in the war. All Germans dodged bombs and gunfire. The war came directly to their doorsteps.

    The South seceded from the Union which was outlined in the Declaration of Independence as a right. Lincoln is the one who drafted an army and started the war, not the South.

    Lincoln burdened the South with unfair taxes to help pay for the North’s industrialization. See the Morrill Tariff Act of 1861. It was a tariff of 40% on imports to the Southern States. No president would dream of trying to get away with that today.

    Lincoln never said the war was to free slaves. It was to rejoin the Union so he could collect taxes from the richer South.

    I spent the first half of 5th grade in Indiana, where I learned that the war was over slavery. I spent the second half of the 5th grade in another state where I learned it was all over states rights.

    The truth is that it was both. Only simple minded people are going to choose a simple solution.

    And this is how you rewrite history to fit your agenda.

    LOL, maggiesway, you’re entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts.

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    Here’s where you can download a copy of the Constitution. Please use it, because you seem one of those people who think the Constitution means whatever you want it to mean.

    You have friends?

    I spent my “gap year” in the Air Force earning my college tuition. That was back when the GI Bill was the Veteran’s Educational Assistance Program and you put in a maximum of $2700 and the govt. put in $5400. There was no “all expenses paid” like today. (I’m starting to sound like an old man. Now get off my lawn!)

    If Bernie Sanders wants “free education” for his whiny delinquents I have the perfect person they can ask. Their recruiter.

    My brother is on the faculty of Mizzou.

    He didn’t come to the family Thanksgiving dinner this past year, which would have been right after the Melissa Click incident. I come from a big family, and we split about 80-20 conservative to liberal. Obviously he’s a big liberal. He defended Click as a person on Facebook, but not her actions. Now he has to attend a class where he’s called a white supremacist.

    I really wish he would get out of that environment and join the real world.
