Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

I don't know why you and DB are so sensitive to CNN being called out. I have no problem calling out CNN when they are propagating misinformation. ... think Kavanaugh... CNN was not what my post was about. My post was about the real danger that the alt-right poses. I was simply pointing out that com...

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

I place Q in the same bin as CNN. After thinking about this, it’s actually a pretty good comparison. Neither is reliable, nor accurate. Ok, this is getting a little silly. It is more accurate to compare CNN with Fox News. Both organizations are biased and have perpetuated agenda based misinformatio...

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

This morning, my 10th grader, who has been home for about 10 days - and whom has been strictly told to stay home until told otherwise - got up very early and went to the GYM!!! He swears I told him last week he'd be able to go (that was before I laid down much more drastic rules. Thankfully, the gy...

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

I am aware of the racial composition of Mexico, Rick. I lived in Michoacán for about a year. I've also lived in the US long enough to know what stereotypes Trump is invoking. So have you. And I know that Trump's cynical use of longstanding racial animus has [love] to do with the actual racial compo...

In the last few years the out groups have been Mexicans... And this just shows your bias and/or ignorance. Mexicans consist o...

I resort to simple minded jokes, because It’s difficult to have an intelligent conversation with leftists that don’t know that “Chinese”, and “Mexican” are not races.

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

I didn't take you for a CCP supporter Ed? Maybe you should move. Didn't say I was a CCP supporter, K. Didn't imply it, either. I actually said that if the President wants to take shots at the CCP in general or Xi in particular that's just fine and dandy, but that it's irresponsible and dangerous to...

When Biden is President, he should make that young Chinese guy, Yang, vice President. That would be fun.
But if he’s Chinese, won’t he be responsible for the China virus?

Also, this needs to stop: https://dynaimage.cdn.cnn.com/cnn/digital-images/org/e791a32c-3698-427b-b415-9a3b512251fc.jpg The virus has a name.

Re: You guys ready for the coronavirus?

I work at a hospital, so you can imagine the paranoia caution, around here. We’ve already seen states that the governor has closed all public and private schools, all restaurants are closed, and any gatherings of 50 or more people, have been canceled. This is getting ridiculous. Next step, I’m guess...

What’s weird is that when I trust in Christ, I really don’t get “horrified” by all of this.
Funny how that works.

Re: Merely Believe in Christ? Why Don't Atheists Believe?

There are rising of atheism is on the raise so will Christianity be decline? I mean people my age are don’t really believing in it. This has a lot to do with abusive and the fact of why so why do we need to suffer. Some of it also has to deal with how we do worship now. This is incoherent. You may ...
