    Well, if a dude has hips like that, he can literally play any part.

    I remember reading the comment in question. In most respects, I see Kellyann as a PR person anyway and thus she would tout the belief of whoever she is working for. I hope no one’s freedom of expression will be cut from these pages as it does offer a great forum for many and varied ideas.

    The disparity is due to the large difference in population of S.Dakota and New York, one of our largest population states. S.Dakota gets 2 electoral votes due to their getting 2 senators which every state gets. The other vote is due to population. Had the senate number of 2 been removed, S.Dakota would only have 1 electoral vote. You’re right, there is a 2 power disparity of electoral voting power in favor of S.Dakota, but the electoral college does have some advantages.

    I was in favor of abolishing the college until I watched an ad explaining it. The electoral college forces candidates to campaign all over the USA, not just in the most populous areas. Thus, our elected candidates will represent city as well as rural populations.

    I preach each Sunday at a preaching station created as a location to teach just starting out ministers in worship . The 4 PM service was open and they asked me to fill in. Though they are Ecumenical Church of Christ and I am Baptist, we get along well. I like to think that I impart knowledge about the running themes presented by the Bible. We are now in the time of Lent and this weeks message will have to do with the concept of suffering as an opportunity or obligation in life. This will be a challenge as to suffer is not something we often promote. But, I find that the wrestling with a theme found in scriptures and in one’s life experience helps to broaden and inspire my thinking. I hope that I am able to impart that to those that hear. My message in my attempt to “rightly divide the word of truth.”

    In the seminary, I took a course on Job. The professor was know as “the sleeping prophet” not because he slept, but because his students did. He spoke with a low pitched, monotone voice that drolled on and on and on. I managed to get much from his teaching but with great difficulty.

    You’re correct, of course. I see the Bible as an anthology of statements about one’s experience with God. This would apply to the noncanonical texts as well. The question of the structure of the early church is an interesting one. Take Phoebe. She seems to act as a director of missions in that she is distributing monies to the various church workers. As for an overseer or bishop, James, Peter and Paul fit that role somewhat. But with Paul, he makes it plain he’d rather leaders remain single than marry.

    I don’t think for a minute that Putin likes Dump and I’m sure that Jerry feels the same. The Russian bear would’ve rather had Dump in office than Clinton who would have kept a more watchful eye on the bear. Dump still hopes to be able to do some business in Russia, as he does with N.Korea, and is trying desperately to maintain his Russian ties. He’ll dismiss a few diplomats, and raise a few sanctions but deep down his real desire is for the business. Just as investigators have often said, “Follow the money”, Dump is all about the money.

    The toon is accurate, but the problem I see is that while ISIS may be reduced to a pickup truck, that makes it more deadly in that its a mobile army. Just like stepping on a mud puddle, now you have many little puddles that are scattered about. ISIS isn’t destroyed yet, like Al Kaida, just its base of operations.

    You cite a Timothy text. This is one reason many of today’s scholars don’t except Timothy as a Pauline text. In fact, one of the most glaring reasons is that bishops didn’t exist in the early church until well after Paul’s death. So Paul could not have written an instruction on the marital status of a bishop that didn’t exist.

    I would have kept the laser printer, and put on headphones.
