    Says the guy that can't just be himself to tell a story. Is it because if you were to simply be yourself...others may find you boring?

    You've responded to every single of my posts, you have boatloads of time to waste but you are still stalling. No excuses.

    Makes me think it would fun to tell a story about your story telling. I'd probably just have to make a long expressionless blank face to be you... [​IMG]

    Yes, I suppose YOU would find that fun.

    Your frustration shows in the form of puerile insults. It's funny how fast the pseudo academic demeanor fades when you get outmaneuvered inside of your own jokes like you have here and the anger surfaces. Be yourself Benjamin, practice in front of the mirror. Use your words and forget the emojis.

    No frustration, I just simply understand there is no use in using reason and logic with you and I am just fine giving you a little tit for your tat. [​IMG] When in Rome... [​IMG]

    Oh you sure showed me.

    Your logic and reason seems to ebb and flow concerning Trump. I think you learned logic and reason from Trump University.

    Anyone can look back and find my communicated disgust at President Elect Trump's coarse and boorish behavior.

    Being a veteran I was especially offended by his remarks concerning John McCain's heroism.

    In the passage of time however I decided to tolerate his uncouth behavior and support/vote for him and/or support what things were supportable.

    OK Trump is a flawed human being.

    So I make no excuse except to say that the Trump/Pence promise of conservative pro-life SCOTUS justices in my estimation overrides all of his/their moral defects.

    Although I do appreciate Ben's exercise of his freedom of speech.

    Another factor in my consideration was the ideology of what I consider the lawlessness of the alternative candidate and the blatant and admitted mistakes she made with her mishandling of our national secrets.

    Also, her dedication to "a woman's choice" to IMO, commit murder.

    Her alleged scandalous behavior concerning the Clinton Foundation.

    Enough said.

    That's right. They're done with simpering "civility" that lets pc run rampant.

    That's what it says. ;)

    Being civil and courteous doesn't equate to political correctness although some like to blur that line around here. I've found that the people that whine the most about political correctness are just upset because they want to be a jerk without being called out.

    I shouldn't have to explain this to a Christian but yet here we are. I guess I'm just curious why Christians would cheer on such boorish behavior.

    It's hilarious with you. You hate civility but add a drum to a worship service and you lose your mind.

    Lol. Civility is in quotes. But civility won't take the nation back from Socialists.

    Mr. Worldly-wiseman is an alien, and Mr. Legality
    is a cheat; and for his son Civility, notwithstanding his
    simpering looks, he is but a hypocrite, and cannot help thee.
    Believe me, there is nothing in all this noise, that thou hast
    heard of these sottish men, but a design to beguile thee of
    thy salvation . . .

    Thank...it is exactly his uncouth behavior you must refuse to tolerate. Trump being President gives the guy absolutely no licence to be a base individual. How dare he say what he said about John McCain and his experiences as a POW....did trump take a wooden stool to the face or even serve? And I could go on and on...but why do so? This guy's got diarrhea of the mouth and he needs to stop it for the good of the nation.

    This is your opinion and there is a chance you may be correct. But IMO he won't stop his "logorrhea" and in his own mind I am sure he believes he does it for the protection of the nation and the protection of innocent blood.

    To me he is reminiscent of Harry Truman. Yes I remember him and I remember pledging Allegiance to the Flag in school with his picture next to the flag.

    He had a coarse personality, he was outspoken and had a similar attitude as Trump :

    "If we see that Germany is winning we ought to help Russia, and if Russia is winning we ought to help Germany, and that way let them kill as many as possible although I don't want to see Hitler victorious under any circumstances."

    He ordered the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    He was known as "giv' um heck Harry" :

    "I never did give anybody hell. I just told the truth and they thought it was hell".

    FWIW
    I am a small "i" independent.
    I was once a JFK Democrat.
    After Roe vs. Wade and the DNC acceptance of the Abortion platform : Goodbye forever.
    After the RINO administrations and the attendant disappointments of the Bush dynasty: Goodbye.

    Admittedly, I am not a true conservative - Or so my wife tells me, but I am Pro-life above all else.

    No problem at all with the drums or cymbals or e. guitar.

    Or our millennial pastor who is perhaps one of the best I have sat under :)

    All I’m hearing here is a bunch of Do-Nothing-Head in the Sand critics criticizing Trump’s reaction to the Bully Media.

    It’s like telling Trump, “Don’t dare talk back to the Bully Media Pulpit or else their minions will come and gang up on you for every statement you’ve made.”

    As if Trump doesn’t realize the threat of the “consequences” which these “wise” minions are trying to use against him in an attempt to censor his rebuttals to the constant attacks he faces.

    No, instead Trump leveled the playing field on the media for the first time in decades and they can do nothing to stop the publicity he gets which he uses to his advantage.

    But the “righteous” Mousy Minions who stood back with their heads in the sand and wouldn’t vote for him even in the face of the consequences Hillary would have brought upon this country choose now to stand up and reiterate the Leftist Bully Media’s rhetoric and criticize the very man who “had”, no, better said, “invented” the way and means to defeat the media system which was keeping the Progressive Globalist Left in power.

    Yep, and now, the very same people who wouldn’t stand up to take away the power from the Leftist Progressive Globalists think their opinions should stand and be worth something to the change that is taking place DESPITE their inaction to help to stop what was upon us while they now only pull their heads out of the sand to attack the champion who DID stop it.

    Can you imagine if Trump were to take the advice of these “righteous do-nothing geniuses” who can’t help themselves but to continually offer their negativity as a sort of sheepish Media Bully Minions? Does anyone think any of these MBMs would have the guts to take the scrutiny that Trump has faced in order to create a means to overtake the traditional media and defeat it? I sure don’t!

    It makes me think of sheep that would criticize the sheepdog for not showing enough mercy to the wolves and suggesting he should file down his teeth.

    I realize Mr. Trump (although he claims it) is not bound by Christian teaching on much of anything. But it is strange to me that so-called Christians relish his attacks on people and approve of his thin-skinned overreaction to any criticism.

    Even if you think Trump is exactly what the world needs right now, his actions run contrary to Christian ideals. While we may not have the ability to discourage him from doing what he is doing, we CERTAINLY have no business cheering him on and attacking people who point out the problem with it.

    1 Peter 3:8-12
    To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted, and humble in spirit; not returning evil for evil or insult for insult, but giving a blessing instead; for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing. For,

    “The one who desires life, to love and see good days,
    Must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit.
    “He must turn away from evil and do good;
    He must seek peace and pursue it.

    “For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
    And His ears attend to their prayer,
    But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

    Is there now or has there been in anyone's lifetime a president whose actions fulfilled the concept of "Christian ideals" (whatever they are in the first place).

    “For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
    And His ears attend to their prayer,
    But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”

    America as a nation has thrown God, prayer and the Bible out of our schools and social places.
    America as a nation has legalized the murder of babies.
    America as a nation has recognized homosexual marriage as normal.

    Why should God hear our prayers?

    Would it not be befitting to send us an "ungodly" man as our president?
    Would it not be befitting to send us an "ungodly" man perhaps even to turn this nation back to God and completely overthrow these national sins since NONE OF US have done it?

    Luke 17:26 "And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

    Genesis 6
    10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
    11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
    12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

    60 MILLION ABORTIONS IN AMERICA SINCE ROE vs. WADE -
    The violent days of Noah are here.
    Sixty million lives sacrificed upon the altar of SATAN. Sixty million innocent lives violently chopped up, ground up, strangled, poisoned, murdered in very very cruel ways, etc... I don't feel bad at all for my vote for this "ungodly" man who has promised to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

    28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; (BUSINESS AS USUAL)
    29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
    30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

    No Comments - except to say Trump is far from perfect in this area of proposed legislation.
