I don’t see a civil war, but I expect more violence. It won’t be war, but it won’t be pretty.
The most important problem facing us is the climate. It’s hard to believe that there are people who don’t recognize that there’s a climate crisis. It must take a lot of effort to be so wrong in the face of such compelling evidence. The second problem facing the US is the threat against democracy.
I never bothered to keep track.
There used to be someone who posted under the name Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy); the name has disappeared, but the poster may have returned under different names.
I can’t see a single justification for advertising prescription medications. The function of advertising, in the best (and exceptional) case, is to let people know about something they might not have heard about; in the worst (and usual) case, it’s to make you think you need something you don’t need. I trust my doctor to keep up with relevant medical advances; I’m not going to run to my doctor to say “I just saw a great ad for such-and-such, can you give me some?”
I hear some people saying. “Well, okay, they found some documents, but we don’t know what was in them.” No, and we will never know, most likely, because they are highly classified. So don’t look for that. Let’s say they were incorrectly classified. None the less, if the FBI learns that there’s a document floating around that’s marked “Top Secret”, surely they are justified in doing everything in their legal power to get it back. There’s an obvious presumption that it could be and most likely is what it says it is, that is, highly classified.
I haven’t read any of the Hebrew Bible in Hebrew, so I can’t judge that. I have read a lot of the Bible in Latin and Greek (and English—mostly I read the King James version), and I can say that much of it is very well written. I won’t recommend Leviticus for light reading. But much of Genesis and Exodus is great, and Job is just mind-boggling. In the New Testament the Gospels and Acts are great; the letters of Paul are interesting, but again, probably not so much for general readers, and Revelations is quite fascinating. I’m neither Jewish nor Christian (or anything else, for that matter), so I’m not promoting the Bible as true. Overall I find it more fun to read than the Upanishads or the Rig Veda.
A cartoon this stupid is just an embarrassment.
I do recommend it. I don’t hold by any religion, but I do think it’s important to know something about religion, since it has been and continues to be such a powerful force. In addition, the Bible is mostly quite fascinating, full of great stories, which have been the basis for a lot of literature. By all means, read it.
It’s likely we won’t see the affidavit until there are charges. That’s partly to protect the investigation, and partly to protect the rights of the person being investigated.
