Richard Dawkins Interviews Creationist Wendy Wright (Complete) - YouTube
DenoPenno comments on Feb 16, 2020:
It is a planned interview and you can tell instantly where she is going when her first words are about explaining **"how human beings were created.**" I don't happen to believe human beings were created. She does and makes it all so very plain from the beginning.
Makes so much sense now.

Kirk Douglas Dead at 103 | |
DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
I remember many of his movies and he was fantastic. My ex heard him speaking one day and told me he needed to learn how to talk. He was long retired and had a stroke, then had taught himself to speak again on his own. She did not know this. Kirk Douglas was a remarkable man.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
Having some sort of prejudice or bias is one thing. Believing garbage or acting on it falsely is another thing entirely. Let's just take the issue of whites not wanting blacks (or any non-whites) to live close to them or next door to them. The motivation here is political and used for gain by making the whites believe that** someone is going to take something away from them.** It's garbage and bullshit. This same thing is going on at our border with Mexico right now today.
republican health care....
DenoPenno comments on Feb 15, 2020:
This has to be the true plan because there never has been a Republican health care plan. In my state you find now that Trump and his GOP have extended Medicare options for you and this new plan is listed as an HMO. Check into it and you find new benefits that you have to pay half of to get. Many of them are free on my current plan.

Politics Question. How will you vote...and WHY?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 14, 2020:
I'm a card carrying Libertarian but never vote for or with them. This is because I am a progressive these days I will vote for anyone who can get us out of this current Fascist regime. Libertarians bought into the GOP and made this current nightmare possible. I'm for anyone who can get us out. Trump needs to leave by any means possible and as soon as possible. I would imagine that if this happens the person elected will have enough supporters to have a majority in both the House and the Senate. I would not vote for Trump even if somebody paid me. BTW, I did not take your quiz. Are you mining for information?

DenoPenno comments on Feb 14, 2020:
I have read the book and Dawkins is correct. A major belief of modern Christians today is that their one god is so far advanced from belief in many gods, and they believe this even though their one god is really three gods in one. I'm with them if they ever get to no gods.

Yes, Trump and his group think I am one of them or they just send this out to everyone.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
I'm not so sure that all the other groups want to "see white America erased." What I am sure of is that this mindset is the rallying cry for white supremacist Americans. There is no doubt about it. In Europe mask wearing by Antifa and a few others was so they would not be recognized and arrested later because they were in a protest march. In America today mask wearing is to hide the fact that the wearers support our current regime. This in itself is scary and I believe it threatens us all.
I need this hat in my life

Why some believe in God
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
People feel they really need something to believe in and they need to have all the answers. Where am I going in life and what is this all about. The religious find that in the end your life is just a test that gets you ready for death. They keep making it up to give it more meaning.
Being intelligent , unfortunately , does not mean a person is moral .
DenoPenno comments on Feb 13, 2020:
Yes, define morality. It seems to me that morality is in the eyes and mind of the beholder, set from within by whomever it is that currently molds society. In this way "morality" is ever changing.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
I don't like any bitter truth about anybody. It seems that the Dems want to run on "business as usual" and this cost them the election last time. It more than likely will this time also. Trump asked the Ukrainian president what he did because he already knew in advance that Biden would be his main opposition. Both sides take money from our controllers and top money interests. It's really all a matter of whether you think we need better healthcare and wages or not. It can never happen with the current regime.

How many of you have lied or decieved a potential employer about your being agnostic or atheist.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
I don't use the word atheist at work because my corporation has a religious base. If it comes up I claim I used to be religious and studied for the ministry but today I am no longer religious. If asked "what happened" I give them a stern look and reply "I am no longer religious." That usually ends it.
Can sex overcome religion? You know what I mean!
DenoPenno comments on Feb 12, 2020:
Sex can usually overcome religion until the religious one gets in so deeply that they are almost brought to tears over prospects of some invisible part of you burning in an imaginary place forever. Paul said in the buybull that the believer might eventually convert the non-believer so this was all a good thing. The truth usually is that some zealous minister hears stories of what the couple thinks is happening in the relationship (and they are one sided stories) then that minister takes action to at least be able to keep one out of the two in his flock.
Incredibly, it seems to be so... There are Atheists who fear hell! []

What happened when you came out of the closet as an atheist?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
My stepfather told me I was "going to split hell wide open" but otherwise we remained friends. My 2 daughters claimed they saw my viewpoint once I explained it to them but they each claimed they "still believe in their own way." That same belief they share is what made Christianity the muddled mess it is today.
I wish Christians would just be honest and say they have NO idea what happens when a person dies?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
The only thing Pascal's Wager does is claim you have lost nothing if you live your life and follow teachings of a god even if you doubt the existence of such god. Believers in this concept forget or lay aside the fact that your all knowing god would know you were not totally sincere. They think this is an exercise of faith. Instead it is absolute stupidity. NO, Christians and atheists are not the same as to what happens when a person dies. If you die you are dead.
Is TV getting preachy again.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
It all stands out to me. The preachiness is trying to sell to a market. Everything today is Reality TV and we know this has nothing to do with reality. This trend is why films like "God Is Not Dead" have made the movies. Some people eat this stuff up. Media today is in the "reality" market and that is sad. I watch TV shows like "Batwoman" for example because her lesbian character is not having numerous affairs all over the screen, so I can accept it that Batwoman is a lesbian. This does not bother me. It would if she was also some super religious freak at the same time. I do make fun of TV shows often and "Chicago PD" is one. I'm sure it is a good show but in jest I write sometimes that I am watching "Chcago Petey" re-runs.
I feel being raised heavily Christian made me afraid of intimacy. Anyone relate? : atheism
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
Maybe I understand this and maybe not. I'm not afraid of intimacy but I am not likely to share all my inner feelings on that subject with people I am intimate with. For one thing, intimacy is different than sex to me, but it may include sex - or it may not. I cannot look at sex as "making love." Sex is simply sex. While having sex you might be "making love" but it does not mean that I am. My mind has sex with the pinup model or the woman in Playboy that I can never have or hold. I'm not "making love" to them so I have a strange detachment of sex and love. They may go together, but for me they do not. I'm not sure if religion has made me this way but it is how I am. These beliefs might explain why my ex and I only lasted 12 years. They might also (if understood) explain to the haters why I do not "hate" her.
If you ever find yourself have to explain your entire belief system to someone that has no ...
DenoPenno comments on Feb 11, 2020:
I'm an agnostic atheist. If you like, or want to quibble with words and their meanings, you may simply call me atheist. I'm not going to argue with you on what words mean or what someone else said they mean when the said meaning may not even apply to the writer. Years ago I met a man with a bad heart that told me his condition did not allow him much more time to live. He thanked god that he had learned the truth and was no longer in control of the "isms." It was the isms that blocked our senses from reality and really knowing god. This man cam out of Catholicism and he would tell you all about Mormonism, Hinduism, and all the other "isms." You simply could not be saved if you were connected to an ism. The irony is that I'm sure this man believed in baptism and he came out of Pentecostalism in his new found wisdom and belief. Yes, this is a true story! BTW, when you take the book definition of "agnostic" as the right approach you will always have believers trying to sway you to their side because they simply believe that you did not have enough right information. You also end up with things like "Agnostic Christians" which seems more than odd. "Well, I just do not know." OK, believer. How did you get this far? This reminds me of a child who does not want to eat his carrots.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 10, 2020:
I'm not sure I understand all your talking points. Maybe you should try understanding how things were in the Eisenhower years and then try again. Nobody is wanting anything "for free" or talking about pie in the sky. Slipping in the names of other politicians to discuss Bernie (or anyone) is an apples and oranges type distraction. I simply cannot be for any person that wants to cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. Why? It is because we need these services and most of us have someone in our families that gets their basic support from these services. No, it is not free. We pay in a tax on these in our working lifetime. Can we afford to pay $6000 per month to keep a family member in a nursing home? I can't. Cuts to the system are already affecting lots of families. To believe that these continued cuts will not affect you and your loved ones is a bit lame. Setting up a 401K for such people at any age is a pipe dream. An honest person cannot declare that they want to see these services cut or taken away. The above is just ONE of my many objections to the the current regime and the powers that be. See! I have accurately discussed politics without naming those who are running for POTUS. Those who do not see my talking point are either rich or they are lying.
Years ago in Waller, Texas I discovered our indoor/outdoor cat dead one evening.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 10, 2020:
What I am attempting to tackle here is that when you see an apparition it is not because of energy that came from the deceased apparition. Existing evidence seems to show that the visual scene has instead come from within your own mind in some way. I have written this because on another site we had members who claimed the dead (animals and humans) do have spirits that hang around for a short time after their deaths. Some believe that a twinkly came and got them later like in the movie "Ghost" or that they just found "the light" and entered into it and went away. Leave spiritualism to the movies, but I find that many Christians believe this same thing. In the case of my one deceased wife, both my daughter and myself heard her moving around the house for days. She was cleaning, cooking, and doing the laundry. You could hear her but never could see her. We thought we were both going crazy but when you research this you find it quite normal. It was our minds that were not ready to let go. The dead are dead but this experience happens to many people who are not ready to let go of the loved one. This is why we have many spirit and ghost stories, mostly told by religious believers, but the phenomenon affects everyone. In the case offered here it was me myself that saw her beloved cat some 2 days after the cat was killed. In explaining my post I have now offered a second experience as well as my first.
Facebook Is Free For A Reason!
DenoPenno comments on Feb 10, 2020:
I'm still on Facebook and I notice such things also. I have started to complain by dong a post called "Dear Facebook." I've done this several times now and they lighten up on me for a while. One example is that I tell them I did look at a car, some property, and items on Marketplace. I am no more going to buy any of those than I am those pretty young girls I looked at from India, so knock it off please! It isn't just Facebook. We are the product now. If I visit Lowe's or Home Depot online my main e-mail comes up to show me what I was looking at. Usually the best way to deal with that is to mark it as spam. This happens in Yahoo mail all the time.

Most of them don't even know that I care.

Interstate cross check, that handed him (Donald Trump) the election more than anything.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 9, 2020:
Amazing reporting into our fractured system of voting and the powers that be, currently and before. Hillary did not want help where she needed it because she thought she had it all sewed up. "Business as usual" backfired and today even Obama says the Dems should not go progressive. Sorry, folks. You cannot beat Donald Trump by trying to keep the DNC within its ranks. This is a part of wishful thinking that allows Trump and his GOP to remain ahead. Steve Bannon recently said that we are actually a Republic (not a Democracy) and that Trump and the current GOP are "the salvation of the Democratic Party." I can't go that far with it but I think he means the Dems are also going to have to change. Hillary and Trump trade barbs as to which one was a "Russian puppet" when current facts show Trump had (and still has) the defunct Cambridge Analytica on his side. The info they had did not vanish and the tactics are still around. Many of them are still working for Trump. Then Koch Industries, the Mercers, and others come along to "purify" the voting roles and make the votes all white. The reason is that brown skinned people are mostly for Democracy and not the white demagogues in power. Yes, my polling place locally also has equal people of both parties running it and an officer of the law there also. I'm in a GOP locale where many of the officials still rant against illegal voting. Apparently they think we have bus loads of illegals coming in. Sorry, folks. Impossible in my area for the way things are set up. Those that argue otherwise know it and they still argue with you about it. They would rather have dictatorship than Democratic Socialism.
Belief is back: why the world is putting its faith in religion
DenoPenno comments on Feb 9, 2020:
What I get out of this is that the world as we thought we knew it is being ripped apart. Leaders know this and they cause this. "We tell us stories in order to live" is the more than famous words of Joan Didion,- it seems to be an ongoing truth. Everyone has faith and religion one way or another. Even your dog has religion. In the confusion people feel that they have to have something. Many will fight you to say that a thing must be true because it is on You Tube. (My apologies to You Tube because I do like them and view their content.) In order to get every dime out of us leaders play with our belief and this also helps us to twist their lies into distorted visions of them as our savoirs. They become part of our religion just like that dog. It all brings me back to something I have only become aware of since retirement age. I'm on the wrong world. This is not my world any longer. No, I have not got religion and think I am going to heaven. It's just a fact. Not pushing forward making a strong way for myself or my family it is all just easier to see today. What is going on is nothing I want to be a part of. The irony here is that for those who have faith, current world events might even make that faith stronger.

Exclusive: Netflix reveals its 9 government takedown requests []
DenoPenno comments on Feb 8, 2020:
I can see a lot of this but if it continues the current American regime will soon be asking for take downs as well. I am a paying member of Netflix and have been for a few years now. This is strange because I watch everything else free and am a pirate. I hate that the movie and music industry cries over all the lost sales it thinks it has. This is not the case at all and piracy might even help sales in the long run. Imagine rain that comes down and you catch some of it in buckets. All of the rain cannot be caught that way. The fact that a signal in the air is caught, viewed, and enjoyed by people is not proof that these same people would have paid for the signal. I have watched many movies and TV shows simply because I could and because they were there. It does not mean I would have paid for them but if I talk about them other people might pay for them. Back to Netflix again, it appears that my ex has given out our password to people she knows in Kenya and they are watching my Netflix free. I get notice of another sign-on constantly in my e-mail. When I tell the story to others they have fits and say "change that password because they are stealing." .I don't care. my view is that some of these poor people might enjoy what they watch and build a good mental idea of Netflix that might allow them and others to pay and view later. The fate of any good thing is passed on by mouth. I don't give a damn about the buckets full of signal that the industry cries about and says they have lost.
The retribution has begun.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 8, 2020:
I agree with your every word. The problem is that what you are writing did not appear so much to the general public, and if it did Trump supporters would just say it was "Trump being Trump." I look at the many times this man is on video claiming he will not leave and that an election is false and invalid if he does not win as expected and it makes me feel Trump would refuse to leave the White House. Many people think this is a false alarm and invalid but I find Trump to be a real alarm and with very valid intent. He needs to be removed by any means possible and as soon as possible.
What can be done about the inactive members problem on this site?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 8, 2020:
I came here from another site and have since then found others here who also come from that site. This site and the other one have lots of members who joined but continue to say nothing or not post anything. I find this to be normal. People move about because they want to get away from the same old posts. Others join and do nothing. This is much like having a Baptist friend who belongs to your baptist Church but he never goes there anymore and doesn't want to hear sermons. I get it. He just wants to belong. When I look back at the last time I was involved in a church I recall a man there who was pointing out that you have to be a productive member of society. His example was that even bees will kill a non-productive bee member. WTF was he trying to say? This sounds a little extreme.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 7, 2020:
We are all different. I hear my words in my brain as words said but I do not hear them in a voice or my own voice. They are just thoughts that are there in sentence form. This is how I think. I have another mode that I call survival mode. No thoughts just actions and more animalistic. I prefer the thinking mode.
Why are newscasters hedging their statements?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 7, 2020:

A convoluted argument hard to grasp for agnostics, but if it were to succeed...? []
DenoPenno comments on Feb 7, 2020:
"Creation care." WTF is creation care? What is hard to grasp here with environment and issues of our environment involves the Christians. The reason is that our environment does not matter because god is taking care of that and why should we worry because we are not going to remain on the Earth for that much longer. That's right. This last bunch of believers are **so special** that god is going to remove them so they do not have to go through what all before them have endured. They believe their bible says that. Then you have people like Bill O'Reilly who says of god "he's still up there, he's still in control." This goes over Fox Noise and is absorbed by so many not to smart people. It means that Koch Industries and those of like mind are setting you up to rape your environment without a single care about you or your healthcare. They are also setting up political action groups to change everything in their favor so as to do this. It is trickery backed up by religion and every bit of it is used against us. This is what is behind Trump and his new Executive Order on our environment. In fact, this is also the major group that is behind Trump. Believers do not care about tomorrow if the world is ready to end. In fact, they will do anything to make it hurry up and happen. Look at the rants of Michelle Bachmann and others on this. Look at the many idiotic rants of popular Evangelical preachers today in Trumpland. Koch, Mercer, DeVos, et al. They all want to trick the farmer into leaving the hen house door open. This is what it is all about.

It is late enough at this point that Donald Trump needs to be removed by any means possible.

The newest on this is that Jay Z and Beyonce remained seated during the National Anthem for the Superbowl. So what? Show me where you have to stand and place a right right hand where some idiot thought your heart was. Where is it written? I spent 3 years in the US Army and none of it was about what Bone Spurs calls patriotism. Patriot he is NOT. So they remained seated. So what? Now the magic flag will not wave anymore.
So I guess it was all about a pic of an American flag with no comment.
DenoPenno comments on Feb 3, 2020:
It's hard for me to believe that Trump ordered this strike. What I think really happened is that those in our war room came up with the idea and said Trump could look tough for re-election if they said it was all his idea. It's hard for me to imagine Trump ordering more than a hooker or a sandwich.
It never fails to amaze me that people can believe that an invisible sky fairy turned a woman into a...

School children would have given that one away from the beginning. It would have to have started with them being adopted or maybe they were picked up at "rent a child." In a short time the kids would know the truth and it would be all over their schools. What frigging morons we have today and they have no thinking skills.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 3, 2020:
I agree totally. The first thing about Michelle being a man is that it is the ultimate racial slap in the face against the entire family, blacks, and Obama in particular. They want to discredit a gracious lady and all around her because a black first family should have never of been. OK, let's pretend a moment that it is true. We have to bring in 2 young daughters who would certainly know at some point what is going on and these girls go to school and have friends, etc. How could they keep the secret? Only a total moron would believe such nonsense and it would take more of a team to hide this if it were fact than it ever would to create it. This is more than believing Obama is homosexual. This is total insanity supported by bogus social media and all to do some shaming. BTW, Joan Rivers was a comedian.
The phrase "gay republican" makes about as much sense as "pregnant virgin.

The GOP thinks you can deal with gays by pointing out "sin" and then pretending they do not exist as real people. They think this will make everyone happy.

DenoPenno comments on Feb 2, 2020:
The comments that you are showing here seem about as lame as all the nonsense of Trump supporters. If you could investigate the background of these people you might find they are not active Christians but they do have the religion somewhere in their background. It reminds me of the real case where a believer ended up killing his atheist friend over a god argument. Some will take it differently but this would be about the angst of someone denying you the belief in an invisible man in the sky. It's anger. It is not about proving your point by sending your friend to god. Your thoughts may be correct here but let me explain "us vs. them" in another way. It is a basic belief of the bible according to the preacher. (Good vs. bad, etc.) This is also the theme of many successful movies and TV shows. You might even go to work daily looking at your job this way - "us" against the world. We come to see that our survival depends on this type of thinking. As to a future where we live in harmony with those who are believers I'm not thinking it is more likely to be any more peaceful than it is right now. In fact, it could get worse and become just like your Reddit post. A lot of this depends on who the national leaders are and what drum they are beating.
What are everyone’s thoughts on the ACA?
DenoPenno comments on Feb 2, 2020:
Recently the ACA had a big shakeup and several people are not there any longer. Jen and Traci among them and I liked both of them. I watch the Atheist Experience every Sunday. Some of this shakeup had to do with the LGBTQ people and where this show was going. I can accept that many of them do not believe also, so I do not understand this and I like and support Stephen Woodford. He did nothing wrong and it appears they threw him under a bus. It stirred up a big storm. Imagine the outcome here for a moment - the ACA supports LGBTQ people and community but now none of this is discussed in any light whatsoever. As for Matt, my logic is very similar to his and I'm with him on most things, but he is currently the president and I'm sure he wants to stay there and also protect himself as well. Matt has his divorce and a lawsuit with Silverman going, and info on that can be looked up and should not be discussed on the show. I agree with Matt about 98% of the time on most issues. I was also into the ACA Facebook page and then they threw me under the bus also. I'm on a desktop computer and nothing handheld where you can get instant messages. I made a remark that someone's logic on a certain subject was "sort of lame" and that did it. Suddenly I am making fun of people who cannot walk or have difficulty walking, etc. This is not what was said or what I meant. "Lame thinking" has nothing to do with crippled people or a 1611 translation KJV bible. I do not know any "lame" people. Horses go lame but in modern times not people. Anyone could see that I am not making fun of crippled people but the board of the ACA had spoken and I was banned from that Facebook page for not correcting my statement in time. My best thought here is that it makes you wonder who is on the ACA Board of Directors and what have they been smoking?

If any of this returns to bother me today my shots will be free unless Trump screws it all up. His new "plan" calls things an HMO but you do have to pay for a lot of things.

DenoPenno comments on Jan 31, 2020:
I'm not sure when Jesus died and I'm also not sure he was "the Christ." It is certain that he did not spend 3 days dead if we assume he did live and died by crucifixion. Somebody cannot count time and "days" very well. At best, I agree with those who say he had a bad weekend. Consider now that god hates sin and all the sins of the world were put upon Jesus. Some claim this is why he died so quickly and they forget that god allows him to "sit at his right hand." This is like a having a kid who fell in crap and you keep him beside you without cleaning him up. WTF? As for America as a Christian Nation, believers of this nonsense forget that many types of people came to America and not everyone came here wanting freedom of religious practice. Dive into it all and it's a lame claim. If the myth is made "true" by government process your government has more control of you.

DenoPenno comments on Jan 30, 2020:
I don't see the flaws but I understand what you might be feeling. My recent experience over a week period is in trying to make Kodi 18 play on both my computers. It only works on one of them. It works on Windows 10 but not on Windows 7. I tried every bell and whistle and every trick in the book. New and different codecs, etc. In the end I gave up and put Kodi 17 back on the Windows 7 computer. The rendering process is the same in both Kodi versions so version 18 should have worked. None of their fixes (or mine) seemed to work so I'm going to quit while I am ahead. The most I got out of this was better colors.

I understand you, but don't worry. America is fast becoming a third world country and we have in office the right people for that job. I just read that Trump has raised another 45 million in the last quarter for his re-election campaign. Put the quarters together and you have a tremendous amount of money raised by this man who "only wants to help us." He really wants to help us bad, and so do the powers behind him. We are not in good hands and this is not Allstate.

DenoPenno comments on Jan 30, 2020:
I think this might be totally possible. If we achieve this and life is greatly extended life for us in the future should include an understanding of people who choose their own exit. I say this because many believers are into god simply because they want to live forever. This is an idea that most of us outgrow in time.
Long ago I was with a group at a get-together after a funeral.
DenoPenno comments on Jan 29, 2020:
Believers do not know that what they believe is a delusion. Not knowing it to be false, this is why they believe. Years ago we would discuss in detail how Moses may have parted the Red Sea and what really happened that day. Many other things as well. How angels fly and do all of them have wings? Can they eat food as we do. (The bible said so.) The bottom line is that you stop believing the nonsense when you finally realize that it is all made up.
The hypocrisy of those church pastors.

DenoPenno comments on Jan 29, 2020:
I agree with you. They don't get it because if they did they would have to admit they were wrong. After all, they are believers because they want to know where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. Evangelical belief seems to have all of that. My religious friend from childhood often compares world events today to things in that crazy book of Revelation. It's nonsense and bullshit. I'm finding out now that groups of Evangelicals are comparing Trump to Cyrus of Persia. I think the world has gone mad.

DenoPenno comments on Jan 29, 2020:
Over the years as I got away from church I found that I was swearing like a sailor. (No offense to any sailors. It's just a remark.) Of course, I don't do this in public. It's a private thing. My younger daughter is just like me and I was not always around as she was growing up. Do you think swearing is genetic?
I might have fucked up on Facebook, ya’ll.
DenoPenno comments on Jan 29, 2020:
I agree with you. Your last sentence nailed it all. The basic idea is that Christians think they are oppressed because their book says they will be oppressed, and we all know that book is correct. LOL They tell you that school shootings happen because we no longer let god in our schools and it is absurd. I'm 73 years old and I do not remember god in our schools. At one time teachers said those that want to can have one minute of silent prayer as the classes started. O'Hair's lawsuits stopped that. This leads me to conclude that the disgruntled student who shoots and kills others in public schools today is very pissed off about that missing minute of prayer. On closer look the whole idea of this is ridiculous. As far as your bible beliefs being taught in public schools, it never happened. Never ever! Regardless of what they try it is not likely to happen, or at least not the way they want it to happen. This is what religious institutions are for. Don't worry a lot about Facebook. I'm there too and I see Jesus arm wrestling a red Devil sometimes. What is that about? We need a lot of likes here. My Trumper relative tells me that the current impeachment is all about Joe Biden and what his son did. Taking those billions of dollars illegally and he was not qualified for that job. I point out that Biden was not a president asking for someone to investigate his rival. As for siblings and job qualifications, how about Ivanka and Jerad Kushner. Two overpaid NY Democrats who haven't got a clue what they are doing. On top of that nobody cares and it all shows so badly. Facebook plays games and they want you to play also. They want all your information. They already have way too much information. If all of this goes bad on you just change your FB identity and be your alter ego. Play that game right back at them.
The founders feared a man like this becoming President.
DenoPenno comments on Jan 28, 2020:
Everyone will think this is over once Trump is not removed. It will be believed that Trump can do anything he wants to. They forget that John Bolton's new book will be a hot topic between now and election time. :)
