Nations have to be governed by Law, to keep the peace by restraining crime, and Law is found in the Old Testament.


Jesus did speak to individuals about capital punishment. He said that the individuals who were without sin should carry out the punishment.

Trump is reportedly accepting $1 per year.

Re: The Week That Was

How about when he tweeted that if Chicago didn't fix their crime problem he wold send in the Feds.

That statement deeply disturbed me. Later someone on his staff said he meant he would send federal help, but that is certainly not the tone of his tweet. His statement was threatening and suggestive of a police state solution. *shivers*


Remember Eliot Ness?

Not looking good for Trump and his dream team.


In the next four years, he may have to go through everybody who voted for him to keep his dream team filled.

Trump is great he is doing everything he said he would. That's why I voted for him, along with 79.6% of the people in Sublette County Wyoming where I live.


You voted for him before he did anything. You've got your "because" before the horse.

Thanks for demonstrating the "mind" of a Trump voter.

The bright spot in all this is that the rest of the world can get along just fine without the US and in fact will be happy to see the US bow out as a developed Nation and remain on the sidelines.

How is that a bright spot?

Re: When does all the winning begin?
Percy writes:

What we have is an incompetent and autocratic White House unfamiliar with handling the reins of government.


He was elected BECAUSE he was an outsider.

His campaign slogan might as well have been, "Let's hire a pilot who doesn't know how to fly the plane." And the American electorate chanted, "Good answer! Good answer!"

You don't. He will lie that he changed it and all the Republicans will sit in the dark and agree.


And the darkness will be the brightest light in the history of the world.
