commented on Russia Is Invading Ukraine and Nobody Seems Able or Willing to Do Anything About It
This is what the U.S. looks like to the rest of the world whenever we do one of our little military adventures. In Geopolitics, might makes right, it's just as simple as that. I don't like it, but the stronger countries can make laws to justify anything they want.
What if Russia said, " we had our top lawyers check to make sure this was legal, and they said it was, so that is the end of that".
America, meet mirror.
commented on Slog Bible Study: Luke 12:48
This is one of those that is only a metaphor, or only refers to its specific time period, or the true meaning has been lost to history, or it is so symbolic in fact that for somebody to try to make it sound like this says anything about the poor or the rich or taking care of the poor, is simply blasphemy--BLASPHEMY I SAY!

commented on Everyone Is Telling Me to Eat Chia Seeds
I've had lemonade with chia for about 20 years now. It thickens up the lemonade a bit, and I happen to like the little floaty crunchy seeds. I think it is a Central America thing.

commented on Slog Bible Study: Isaiah 17:1
This is why you move out of the ghetto your parents mistakenly bought a home in. You don't stick around and hope the gangsters will start making murals, and the drug dealers will recognize that children aren't proper customers. And you certainly don't stay if your city has been doomed for literally thousands of years. Move. Good for you, good for me.
