    Actually – yeah the girlie man came out again.

    Just having fun – nobody in real life calls themselves a macho man except maybe Steve Segal.

    As for girlie man – I really loved the old Hans und Franz SNL skit, and of course I love Arnold.

    No, take that back. Since he’s turned against Trump he’s become such a girlie man loser.

    He just keeps whining and I wish he’d just get to the chopper and go back to Austria.

    btw, did you see the Kathy Griffin thing? Disgusting.

    Oh, but the macho comments came up because Wazza ran out of sane arguments and tried to say I was afraid. Just pointing out that I’m not afraid of Muslims. And, yes, because Wazza seems to have an EXTREME pacifist Amish type position, I made the point that I am willing to physically defend people.

    And I also think it was valid biblically to use weapons to defend against the Germans and the Japanese.

    etc etc

    But I certainly do need a couch.

  2. You have a strong tendency toward language that presents you as an alpha man (autocorrect wanted to say ‘aloha’ man! Lol) Q. ‘Man up’ , ‘girlie man’ ‘beat up 3 Muslims’ ‘being inbuff shape to be able to protect your family if ever a Muslim (or anyone I imagine) crosses into their personal space’. Why the need to defend your masculinity? You even thought telling me you took back all the ‘girlie man’ comments was some sort of masculine compliment for me admitting I was wrong. What’s the issue behind all of this Q…go on, the couch is open and I’m listening.

    The secretive court also notes a change for the better under President Trump’s team.”

    Prediction. Just like I predicted Trump’s victory, I predict that Trump will NOT be impeached and that the Russian thing will backfire.

    Trump did nothing wrong and will be exonerated.

    Not a prophecy , just a clear prediction.

    Wazza- wait. I’ll be prove not right.,

  4. “The Los Angeles Times devoted precious space on its front page on Memorial Day to a story about how anxious anti-Trump activists are finding ways to relax.
    Apparently, knitting “pussyhats,” conjuring conspiracy theories, painting offensive signs, disrupting town halls in other people’s congressional districts, tweeting “#Resistance,” and scouring the media for signs of President Donald Trump’s imminent impeachment is bad for mental and physical health.”

    “So, in need of relief themselves, they go to a longtime community organizer for help.

    In his workshops and webinars, Victor Narro tells them to unplug, garden, hike, dance, volunteer, build altars at their cubicles and look at photos that bring them joy. They’re in it for the long haul, after all. President Trump still has nearly 200 more weeks in office.”

    So Wazza, I know that pink pussy hat you are knitting would look so good on Greg …

    Trump has great intel. You want to parse and criticize every statement?

    Did you do the same with Biden, Hillary and Obama? Do a search for Obama and his gaffes, for Biden and his gaffes.
    But because you only read liberal news you’d hardly see them.

    Re the latest attack, if you weren’t an idiot,
    You’d be asking why it isn’t a problem that “unnamed officials” passed on so called “classified information” to journalists.

    Name these officials. What exactly was this info?

    Nothing there Greg.

    But we are nearing the end of democracy in the US.
    When you lose an election, the media in cohorts with those who oppose the President can die d everyday trying to get rid of him.
    This is an incredible dangerous precedent.
    If they did get Trump, then they’d start on Pence. Then …..

    So, the next election when the Dems win, the people who lost can start all over again and just form another “resistance”

    Except it will be hard next time because of the media.

    Basically now it’s the same as if Brian Houston were President and Margot and the churvgwatchers contrilled the media.,
    Just daily attacks .

    If you had daily media attention on Newcastle Anglicans and every word was analyzed you’d understand.

    The problem with you is hypocrisy and lack of empathy.

    To try to make you understand , I simply try to give you an idea of what it feels like.

    Here – you guys do the attacking – on churches, Christians , and Trump. You’re allowed to call them idiots , and tut tut at every wrongdoing – even going back to decades old private conversations.

  17. First – I’ll address the chicken -egg thing.

    I’m not interested in the distant past sexual sins or statements of a President.

    There was a choice of Hillary or Trump.
    Comparing them morally I’d still pick Trump.
    You don’t seem to have any idea of Hillary’s lies, cover-ups and corruption.

    Trump was a vulgar promiscuous man.

    Now he’s the President . I wish him well.

    And when it comes to private language, I don’t see a difference between a President and a garbage collector.
    And as a person who wants to be an Anglican priest – I’m really mad that you seem to want to make fun of different occupations.

    I’ll remember this quote and others if you ever go into politics or apply for a higher job in the Anglican Church.

    As for echo chamber – you are the one. You quote articles without knowing the details. Wazza gets a quote wrong about Trump below.
    Why because you both have no original thought and even less original research.
    The piece of ass thing was from a Howard Stern interview.
    Now….. have you ever listened to Stern?
    Do I have to explain who he is?

    I have to check everything because your knowledge of America is as shallow as the sexual morality of Newcastle Anglican clergy.

    Btw , what an cesspool you’ve been spending your time in. Groupsects could spend the next three years just on Newcastle. – let alone the rest of the Anglican Church.

  30. I watch Colbert on YouTube every night. He’s the best comedian out there and the only one saying sane things in a mad world.

    Big deal if the audience cheered… In my view the guy should be sacked, just not right now. Why would Trump now be suddenly worried that the Clinton email investigation had not been conducted fairly for her? Another clue is that in his firing letter, Trump thanks Comey for telling him personally on three occasions that he was not under investigation. Strangely in a firing that wasn’t about Trump’s situation at all, he inserts a little thank-you about an unrelated investigation. One of the little courtesies and considerations that’s so like Trump.

    If Comey did personally inform a suspect that he wasn’t under investigation or any details about an ongoing investigation it would be collusion – something that your local plod down the station would never think about doing. Yet Trump thinks he can convince the world that the head of the FBI did it. And then he goes on Twitter and threatens him to keep quiet about the whole thing.

    People put him in to wreck the place and shake it up a bit. Instead he is wrecking the rule of law and the constitution and threatening national security. They put a child in to a job that has to be done by a great man. He’s got no idea what he’s doing and he’s got to be stopped before it’s too late.

  38. True, but Q will never admit it.

    Because Q is in a sense a little like Trump. Various people on the blog have admitted doubts or weaknesses from time to time. But not Q. No, if you listen to Q he looks like a Vogue model and he did it just by being a sensible eater. When he became a Christian he sensibly researched all the alternative theologies and came to a reasoned and completely rational decision. There was no period of searching, no crisis of faith or of the psyche, no dark night of the soul. Just a few hours presumably spent in a library researching.

    People like this love quick and simple answers to complex questions. If they think they have been saved from sin it is only in a very abstract sense and the attraction is that it is again a simple, quick and final answer to a sticky problem.

    He looks up to and identifies with great and successful figures who have done all the right things and hopes to ride on their coattails, whether they be Pastors or Presidents. Then comes the disrespect and disgust at all the lowly beings he sees who either have icky problems (and therefore made the wrong choices) or have the audacity to question some of the stories of his gods. In fact the low lifes must be belittled and derided in order to maintain the gods’ place on the pedestals.

    Yes there is something wrong with Trump, but Q must keep pretending that there is something wrong with his critics. Otherwise his whole world will come tumbling down and he will just be another mortal sinner like everyone else.

    Treasury Nominee Steve Mnuchin’s Bank Accused of “Widespread Misconduct” in Leaked Memo
    David Dayen
    January 4 2017, 7:22 a.m.
    Photo: Jewel Samad/AFP/Getty Images
    ONEWEST BANK, WHICH Donald Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, ran from 2009 to 2015, repeatedly broke California’s foreclosure laws during that period, according to a previously undisclosed 2013 memo from top prosecutors in the state attorney general’s office.

    The memo obtained by The Intercept alleges that OneWest rushed delinquent homeowners out of their homes by violating notice and waiting period statutes, illegally backdated key documents, and effectively gamed foreclosure auctions.

    In the memo, the leaders of the state attorney general’s Consumer Law Section said they had “uncovered evidence suggestive of widespread misconduct” in a yearlong investigation. In a detailed 22-page request, they identified over a thousand legal violations in the small subsection of OneWest loans they were able to examine, and they recommended that Attorney General Kamala Harris file a civil enforcement action against the Pasadena-based bank. They even wrote up a sample legal complaint, seeking injunctive relief and millions of dollars in penalties.

    But Harris’s office, without any explanation, declined to prosecute the case.

    Mnuchin, the former CEO of OneWest, was already facing challenges in his upcoming Senate confirmation hearings on account of his bank’s ruthless foreclosure practices, ranging from locking out one homeowner during a Minneapolis blizzard to foreclosing on another over a 27-cent payment shortfall.

    “After years peddling the kind of dangerous mortgage-backed securities that eventually blew up the economy, Mnuchin swooped in after the crash to take a second bite out of families by aggressively — and sometimes illegally — foreclosing on their homes,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren said in a statement last month. Sen. Ron Wyden, the top Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee, warned: “Given Mr. Mnuchin’s history of profiting off the victims of predatory lending, I look forward to asking him how his Treasury Department would work for Americans who are still waiting for the economic recovery to show up in their communities.”

    The consistent violations of California foreclosure processes outlined in the memo would indicate that Mnuchin’s bank didn’t merely act callously, but did so with blatant disregard for the law.

    According to the memo, OneWest also obstructed the investigation by ordering third parties to refuse to comply with state subpoenas.

    Whether Mnuchin directed efforts to prevent scrutiny of his bank’s practices could be a focus of the confirmation hearings.

    The memo also raises questions about then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris, who was sworn in as a U.S. senator on Tuesday, and who will soon have to vote on Mnuchin’s appointment.

    Why did her office close the case, deciding not to “conduct a full investigation of a national bank’s misconduct and provide a public accounting of what happened,” as her own investigators had urged?

    State and federal law enforcement have been severely criticized for failing to hold accountable those responsible for the financial crisis and its aftermath. The OneWest case provides another example, and this time, the failure to prosecute could help the nation’s next treasury secretary get confirmed.

    TO UNDERSTAND THE importance of these revelations, one needs to know a bit about California’s nonjudicial foreclosure process. If a homeowner misses mortgage payments and no resolution can be worked out, the lender files a notice of default, starting a 90-day clock where the homeowner can either repay the debt or face a sale of their property.

    In the original deed of trust that establishes the mortgage, the lender designates a third-party trustee to handle the sale process in case of foreclosure. Lenders can change trustees at any time, memorializing this with a “substitution of trustee” document (SOT).

    After the 90 days expire, if the homeowner is still in default, the trustee can record a notice of sale, setting a date for the auction at least 21 days thereafter. The winner of the auction gets the home, and can proceed to evict the homeowner.

    Because no judge oversees this process, adherence to the rules is paramount.

    “Compliance with the law gives us confidence in the outcome,” said Katherine Porter, a law professor at the University of California, Irvine, and an expert on foreclosures. “The whole scheme is a gift from the legislature to the mortgage industry. If the state is giving the industry benefits to take shortcuts, it’s reasonable to expect the industry to comply strictly with that process.”

    And according to the state investigation, OneWest wasn’t following the rules.

  47. Reverse mortgages are advertised as a way for elderly homeowners to get the cash they need and stay in their homes for the rest of their lives.
    They don’t have to make payments as long as they live in the home, so few ever worry about foreclosure.

    But a bank formerly run by Steven Mnuchin, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for treasury secretary, has a record of aggressively foreclosing on these homeowners, according to some borrowers and fair housing advocates.

  48. After the 2008 housing crash, Steve Mnuchin swooped in to purchase a failed bank with mountains of bad mortgages on its books. He rebranded the bank as OneWest, and led the bank as it raked in billions in profits by aggressively – and sometimes illegally – foreclosing on people’s homes. OneWest also ran a reverse-mortgage subsidiary called Financial Freedom, which serviced 17% of the reverse-mortgage market but was responsible for 39% for foreclosures. Steve Mnuchin got rich off the backs of working families who were hit hardest by the financial crisis.

    Donald Trump now wants to hand Steve Mnuchin the keys to the Treasury Department, where he can make big banks even richer at the expense of America’s families. Were you or someone you know hurt by Steve Mnuchin and OneWest Bank’s predatory business practices? The Senate Democrats are asking people to come forward and share their stories.
    Steven Mnuchin’s OneWest filed to take a 90-year-old woman’s house after a 27-cent payment error!

I personally have Aboriginal nieces, nephews and cousins, and there is some suggestion from a 1st cousin that we actually have Aboriginal heritage ourselves (if that’s true, and in any case, it’s hilarious that your carrying on with me about racism). One last point, in two weeks time I am presenting a short paper at the Australian Liturgy Association Conference on the incorporation of ‘Dadirri’; Aboriginal deep contemplative listening into our church services.

    So Q, I like to think that I am, perhaps only in a very small way, doing something to address personal and institutional racism in the Anglican Church and in our community at large.

    Is Donald Trump Racist? Here’s What the Record Shows
    Michael D’Antonio
    Updated: Aug 25, 2016 7:34 AM AEST | Originally published: Jun 08, 2016
    Is Donald Trump racist? That question has hung over the presumptive Republican nominee for president as he has called Mexicans “rapists” and proposed a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. Lately, though, the question has taken on more urgency as Trump has repeatedly publicly attacked the judge who presides over Trump University class-action lawsuits. Calling the American-born Gonzalo Curiel a “Mexican,” he said Curiel was therefore biased against him, and he added to the flurry of objections by suggesting that a Muslim judge might also be incapable of hearing a lawsuit involving any Trump entity.
    In between these remarks he managed to offend by singling out a black man at one of his rallies, calling him “my African American” as if the fellow’s presence proved Trump was on the right side of the race issue.
    For the long followers of Trump’s career, however, none of these incendiary remarks are especially surprising. Trump has a long record as a provocateur on matters of race and ethnicity.

    It starts in 1973, when the United States Department of Justice went to court with a discrimination complaint against the Trump family business, which rented apartments across Brooklyn and Queens. Coming from the administration of Richard Nixon, who was hardly a civil rights agitator, the complaint was based on an investigation that found four different Trump employees confirming that applicants for leases were screened by race. One rental agent said Trump’s father had told him not to rent to blacks and that he actually wanted to reduce the number of African Americans in his buildings. Three doormen said they had been instructed to deflect blacks who came to Trump buildings to apply for apartments.

    Though just 26 years old at the time, Donald Trump was already president of the Trump Organization. Rather than work with the government to bring the company into compliance with the law, as the New York apartment king Sam LeFrak had done, Trump retained one of the most notorious lawyers in the country, Roy Cohn, and commence an all-out legal war. Cohn, who had been Joe McCarthy’s chief inquisitor during the senator’s witch hunt for communists in the government, filed a $410 million lawsuit against the federal government and smeared the justice department attorneys with terms such as “storm troopers” and “Gestapo.” Trump complained in the press of “reverse discrimination” and alleged a “nationwide drive” to force landlords to “rent to welfare recipients.”

    In the early 1970s, “African American” and “welfare” were used interchangeably and it was a well-established hallmark of dog-whistle politics, which allowed speakers to appeal to racist beliefs without using openly racist terms. More whites used welfare assistance than blacks, but welfare was regarded by some as a special benefit for minorities. In 1980 the coded language that matched welfare with undeserving minorities was revealed as Ronald Reagan spoke of “welfare queens” and “strapping young bucks.”
    Trump’s countersuit in the fair housing case brought against his company was dismissed by a judge who considered it a “waste of paper.” The Trump organization eventually accommodated the feds, agreeing to a protocol intended to address the mistakes of the past.

When vacancies opened up in buildings where fewer than 10 percent of the tenants were black or Hispanic, the center would then have three days to submit applications from minority clients who wanted those apartments. If qualified, they were to get preference by agreeing to advertise vacancies in newspapers that served the black community. Trump was also required to advertise vacancies in press outlets serving minority communities.
    Although he wound up complying with federal regulators on his rental policies, Trump had successfully staked out his position on race. He was on the side of those whites who resented civil rights laws intended to redress racism.

    Trump questioned Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Trump University ruling because of his Mexican heritage.
    “A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage”
    In 1989, he told Bryant Gumbel in an interview, “A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market…if I was starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I really do believe they have the actual advantage today. “ In fact, all the serious studies refuted that. However his statement did serve as a kind of shout-out to those who were ignorant about the racial dynamics in the U.S. economy.

    Earlier in that same year Trump helped fan the flames of racial resentment when black and Latino teens were arrested in the infamous “Central Park jogger” attack. Trump alone chose to pay for $85,000 worth of full-page newspaper ads trumpeting, in capital letters, “BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY. BRING BACK OUR POLICE!” In the text Trump objected to then-Mayor Ed Koch’s plea for peace: Mayor Koch stated that “hate and rancor should be removed from our hearts. I do not think so.”

    As Trump and other New Yorkers indulged in hate and rancor, the five accused were subjected to intense interrogation, most without their parents present, and gave false confessions. After years in prison, they were exonerated by DNA evidence. A book and a documentary film on the case showed how fear and race played substantial roles in the wrongful convictions but Trump, who fanned the flames, remained steadfast in his views. When the men received compensation for their imprisonment, Trump denounced the payments and smeared the men by saying, “These young men do not exactly have the past of angels.”

    “Black guys counting my money! I hate it”
    Next in the Trump record on race came a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, who had been president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. O’Donnell quoted Trump saying,“ Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys wearing yarmulkes… Those are the only kind of people I want counting my money. Nobody else…Besides that, I tell you something else. I think that’s guy’s lazy. And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks.”
    O’Donnell’s report was shocking, but Trump did not contest it at the time. In 1997 he was interviewed for Playboy by author Mark Bowden and he confirmed that the O’Donnell book was “probably true.”
    Two years later, when he was seeking the reform party nomination for president, Trump changed his tune. “I’ve never said anything like that,” he told Tim Russert on Meet The Press.
    The flip-flop that saw Trump affirm John O’Donnell’s reporting and then deny it, must be weighed against Trump’s clear tendency to see things in racial terms and then say what he thinks.

    A telling moment arose during a 1993 Congressional committee hearing on gambling casino operated by Indian tribes. Trump, who considered the tribes competitors, offered a flourish of insensitivity during his testimony when he said, “They don’t look like Indians to me and they don’t look like Indians to Indians.”
    Trump also said that tribal gaming operators were somehow tied to organized crime and a scandal was about to erupt. “In the 19 years I have been on this committee, I have never seen such irresponsible remarks,” Rep. George Miller (D., Calif.) shouted back to Trump. (Decades later, the industry is still waiting for the scandal that Trump predicted.)

    In his businesses, which are private entities not subject to affirmative action policies, Trump did not establish an impressive record for diversity in the executive suite. He has spoken often about providing employment to minority workers, but in 2015 The New Yorker quoted a former Trump casino worker who said that in the 1980s black employees were hidden from view when Trump and his wife Ivana were around.
    No black or Hispanic executive has ever played a prominent public role in the Trump business organization. However the foundation run by Eric Trump includes one African American vice president, Lynn Patton, who is described on the foundation website as “senior assistant” to Donald Trump’s three older adult children.
    See also: Why Does Ivanka Trump Always Get a Free Pass?
    Last year Trump defended himself against complaints about his attitudes by claiming that he’s the “least racist person on earth.” Except for Patton, the Trump team has not presented to the press the name of a single key executive who is either Hispanic or African American.
    Trump did manage to avoid race-related controversies for more than a decade—between the mid-1990s and 2010. Then, in 2011, Trump seized upon the conspiracy theory that suggested that Barack Obama was not an American citizen. This so-called “birther” idea had been discredited as false, and it was widely seen as a racially charged insult and had been abandoned by other leading Republicans including Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama and Rep. Roy Blount of Missouri.
    Trump took up the cause with relish. He also delivered innuendo about the president’s academic record and admission to Columbia University and Harvard Law School, implying that he was academically unworthy but benefitted from affirmative action.

    Which brings us to the current presidential campaign and a candidate who is being criticized by leaders of his own party for the racial tone of his remarks on the stump and in press interviews. Trump said his statements about Judge Curiel have been “misconstrued.”
    Whether he’s mocking Chinese businesspeople with broken English, contorting his body to make fun of a disabled reporter, or calling out to “my African American,” again and again, Trump has provoked anxiety and played to racial divisions. Earlier this week, Joe Scarborough, a lifelong Republican and host of the Morning Joe TV show called Trump’s remarks about Judge Curiel “completely racist.” He didn’t pass the same judgment on the man himself, but from what I see, the record would support him if he did.

    Michael D’Antonio is the author of the book, The Truth about Trump.

    Reuters
    Islamic State (ISIS) militants have destroyed several areas in Mosul and are driving Christians away to refugee camps. Those who fail to escape and are captured by the jihadists face a terrifying ordeal.

    One refugee in Jordan said he was captured by ISIS militants back in 2014 after they took over the house where he and his parents were staying. They forced them to convert to Islam or pay the jizya, a tax on non-Muslims worth $300 per person. The man, who chose to be called Carlos, refused to convert and pay the tax, forcing the ISIS militants to torture him.

    He was taken to an unknown location and was hung upside down on one leg. “They tortured me by electric shock, beat me with sticks, stuck with nails, and bound me with barbed wire,” Carlos told Christian Aid. “They put salt on my wounds. I was shouting from the intense pain.”

    They tortured him until he was dragged in court, where a judge told him to convert to Islam or else face death. “I refused and said, ‘If I die, I will die proud, because I am a Christian,'” said Carlos. “The judge responded, ‘You will be shot and executed on Sept. 26.”

    Carlos was taken to the outskirts of Mosul during that date, but before they could execute him, the militant in charge received a call from a superior, ordering him to leave the Christian there. So they kicked and hit Carlos, then threw him from a car.

    Advertisement
    He could not believe his luck, but Carlos was so worn out from all the beatings that it seemed impossible to survive. “I tried to walk, but after a while, my bleeding wounds caused me to fall down and pass out,” he said.

    Thankfully, when he regained consciousness, he found himself in a hospital in Kirkuk. Indigenous Christian missionaries even went one step further by taking Carlos to Spain where his leg injuries were treated.

    “In Iraq, they could not treat my leg and told me it needed to be amputated,” he said. “But then I went to Spain, and my leg was treated in the Spanish hospital through an organisation. Thank God I can walk now, but I have nothing to live on here in Jordan.”

    He said it was rigged – and every day we got examples of how DNC operatives were underhand. And we know there was voter fraud – AGAINST Trump. But he’s right – why worry about that now. He wants to run the country. On the other hand…….lol everyone attacked him for not saying he would accept the results and demonized him. So…he wins? Jill Stein, HIllary you whining crying babies couldn’t accept it. That’s the real hypocricy.

    “And then there are the “Lock her up” chants that were prevalent at Trump rallies leading up to the election, referring to Hillary Clinton. “Truth Trump” dropped a bomb on supporters when this “thank you” tour stopped in Michigan.As the “Lock her up” chants started, Trump told the crowd, “That plays great before the election. Now we don’t care.”

    Many people thought she should be locked up. I still think the Clinton FOundation should be investigated and so should she. But…..there are precedents for pardoning people and also forgoing an investigation so you can get on with running the country.

    “The Daily Show.”
    In the last few weeks President-elect Donald Trump has been traveling the country on a “thank you” tour, hosting rallies in areas that helped him win the presidential election.

    And on Wednesday’s episode of “The Daily Show,” host Trevor Noah pointed out something he found in these speeches: the emergence of “Truth Trump.”

    “The Donald voices some political opinion and then Truth Trump slips in and tells you the real deal,” Noah said.

    Noah pointed out a few examples.

    At a Wisconsin rally, Trump called House Speaker Paul Ryan “a fine wine – every day goes by, I get to appreciate his genius more and more.” But then he quickly added, “Now if he ever goes against me I’m not going to say that.”

    In West Virginia, Trump said he doesn’t call the system “rigged” anymore, a comment he made often during the campaign, because he won.

    “I don’t care,” he said.

    “It throws everyone off because politicians aren’t supposed to be honest about their lying,” Noah said.

    And then there are the “Lock her up” chants that were prevalent at Trump rallies leading up to the election, referring to Hillary Clinton. “Truth Trump” dropped a bomb on supporters when this “thank you” tour stopped in Michigan.

    As the “Lock her up” chants started, Trump told the crowd, “That plays great before the election. Now we don’t care.”

    “He’s like a magician telling everyone how he did the trick and still some people are like, ‘Wow, it’s magic,'” Noah said.

We only have three official balls. We have two that are like the official balls, and then we have a third—it’s a tradition President Bush started in 2005 with the Commander-in-Chief ball, President Obama continued it and President Trump is also continuing it but expanding it. This ball, the general public can’t get a ticket. Historically, it’s only been active duty members of the military—specifically enlisted members. This year, we’ve expanded it to include military families, wounded warriors, veterans, and first responders as well. So you’ll have police, firemen, who will all be there.

    Economists say Donald Trump is right to credit himself for sending consumer confidence to a 15-year high this month as Americans reported a rosy outlook for job creation, business growth and the stock market.

    The news broke Tuesday, when the Conference Board said its Consumer Confidence Index soared to 113.7 in December, the highest level since 2001. The jump surprised economists, who say the economy has been slowing down.

    Trump’s election put the country in a good mood, economists say.

    “There’s a lot of hope that things are going to change and get better,” said Mark Vitner, a senior economist at Wells Fargo. “Let’s see what happens.”

  85. Sure Q – you go ahead and gloat at the election of an avowed racist and bigot. Yeah – the times are a changing alright.

    <blockquote<On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, a sizeable minority of the U.S. electorate chose to send billionaire Donald Trump, an avowed sexist and an unrepentant racist, who has spent nearly forty years antagonizing vulnerable people, to the White House. Spewing hatred at women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, and those with disabilities is Trump’s most consistent, and well-documented form of public engagement. Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women because, as he quipped, his celebrity made it easy for him to do so. We can only assume that the hostile climate and anxiety about what is to come were contributing factors. The political shift we are witnessing, including the appointment of open bigots to the president-elect’s cabinet, reaffirms the structural disposability and systemic disregard for every person who is not white, male, straight, cisgender, able-bodied, and middle or upper class.

It has been growing for the last 10 years, the issue is that the profits are not flowing to the people who work in it. 70% of US workers effectively haven’t had a pay rise since 1979. And Trump has brought in all the billionaires who got rich under this system to his cabinet. If you think they are going to change it to help the little guys, then I have a bridge going cheap that I would like to sell to you.

    “Tens of thousands of jobs promised” . Sure, Trump is great at promises. He promised to pay his creditors, promised to love one woman and forsake all others, promised to build an artistic wall higher than the Great wall of China and get Mexico to pay for it, use torture even if it doesnt work, renegotiate and cut the entire US budget by 20%. He has done this before, for example promising to create 6000 jobs at his new golf course in Scotland – when less than 200 were created.

    October 1, 2016

    “It’s an uncontested truth that Trump remains historically unpopular among black voters. And there are no signs of this changing, even with Trump’s recent attempts at African American outreach. In one poll this summer, he achieved the remarkable feat of getting zero percent of the black vote in two key swing states, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Though there have been outliers, his unfavorability rating among blacks is bleak—close to 90 percent of black respondents in one recent survey had “very” or “somewhat” unfavorable feelings toward him—and Trump is currently polling between 2 percent and 6 percent with black voters nationally.”

  103. Greg,
    You think your post applies re abortion in the 9th month?

    Does your post apply re abortion in the 7th month?

    You ever seen premature babies – babies at the same age that are aborted.

    For many people it’s not just a matter of a medical procedure but it’s murder.

    Would you post that exact post if people said you could kill a baby the day after its born?

    Would that still be between the person and God?

    Most people think some acts are not just between the person and God.
    Someone kills a baby after its born – you would call that murder.
    But if the same baby a few weeks or months before is killed (and we are talking about killing – ask a doctor) , you then say it’s a matter between God and the person?
    Why?

    If a woman says to a doctor “abort my baby” at 8 months , the doctor will first kill the baby then extract it. You say that’s something nobody else can make any judgement about. If someone kicks a woman in the stomach at 8 months killing the baby, what crime are they guilty of.

    You still think a woman then can kill a baby as long as it is physically located inside her body and it’s between her and God.

    I disagree.

Whether an abortion is sin or not is only for God to determine.
