56, Pastor in a small upstate New York church. Love to watch & play hockey.
I guess it does make me feel a little buzzed.
I can see you’ve drunk the Kool Ade. He was given $200 million. When you have that much, it should be a piece of cake to increase it exponentially. The more you have, the more you can make with less risk. Give me that much, and I guarantee I can do more with fewer bankruptcies and fewer lawsuits. Remember, over the course of his career, he has had more lawsuits (and lost them) than any other developer in the history of New York. He has been sued for non-payment more times than any other. In other words, he’s a thief. He gets away with it because he’s rich. Now, since gas prices are skyrocketing, since jobs are now starting to go south again (remember Carrier and all those jobs he “saved”? All gone now.), since our allies no longer think we are relevant and are doing deals without us, since health insurance premiums are shooting upward …. what exactly is so great?
I’m richer, too.
It is challenging and requires work to get, but it’s not “bad.” It is socially important because it’s a commentary on living as a black person in America. It’s challenging because he uses so many references from history, from current news, and from scripture. Not easy listening. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth understanding.
Yeah, I never got what’s up with all the vegan hate. I’m not vegan or vegetarian but have friends who are. They never make a fuss or judgement about it. Ever. Just do their thing. The only people judging are defensive meat eaters. Go figure.
Just as a point of information, refraining from eating red meat does not make a person a vegan. It doesn’t even make them vegetarian.
Well, she’s 3 or 4 (since she’s in nursery school), so I’d guess it’ll be a few years before she really learns.
Actually, Mona never said that. And while I don’t bother with the royals, I do like this couple because they know what they’ve been given, and they both have a strong sense of compassion and justice. While other royals jet around, Harry had a real conversion experience and spends much more of his time with the disenfranchised. It may not change much, but I like the guy. And as a study in cultural paradigm shifts, this couple’s wedding was fascinating.
I need airplane mode for my brain.
This whole arc reminds me of the original Batman movie from the 60s when the entire UN Security Council (or its fictional equivalent) was dehydrated, turning them to dust, and somebody sneezed.
