Living in Iowa
Defense contracts? Those companies that manufacture the fighter planes the government orders several dozen at a time at a few million dollars each have been in business for years. Even when it seems every plane has a fatal or near-fatal flaw in the design. (Yet the company never seems to have to return the money.)
I tried explaining to a relative that in a court for “regular” folk, a juror would be dismissed. And if a juror was found to have predetermined their “vote” prior to the trial, and taken the “oath of impartiality”, they would be subject to fine and/or imprisonment for perjury. But, members of Congress are given an absolute privilege to lie with impunity in the House or Senate, if they so desire, by the Speech or Debate Clause in Article I, Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution. Yes. They are “above the law”, even though they keep screaming that no one is.
I have relatives that put sugar on sliced tomatoes. (I still flinch when I give my sister tomatoes from my garden, knowing how she’ll “spoil” the flavor.) I’ll just use salt please, preferably garlic or onion.
I like my oatmeal with out any additions. No milk, no sugar, no salt, nothing.
Does your figure of “bills not passed” include the ones Moscow Mitch has been keeping stuffed up his ass so he can claim the Democrat-controlled House members are “do nothings” because not one bill has been introduced to the Senate floor (and of course not mentioning he’s responsible for introducing said bills and can’t be bothered to do so). Republicrap logic.
Depends on the news of the day. There are several candidates in various elected positions around the world. Maybe “he” is a group.
A former co-worker was born on Halloween, as were his twin sisters. He use to joke his parents then quit because they were afraid they’d end up with a coven. Of course I pointed out to him that according to a wiccan friend of mine the minimum number for a coven is three.
Wormwood, mentioned in Revelation 8:10-11. The Anti-Christ has already been “annoited” (elected).
Yes, I’ve noticed this. But I’ve also met quite a few people who, after spending some time around their families, are polar opposites on almost every opinion and belief. I’ve wondered what key event(s) in their childhood set them on a different path. Something they read? Someone they associated with (probably contrary to their parent[s] desires)? It’s the people who behave in ways that apparently have no parallel in their childhood home environment that really fascinate me.
