    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Republicans are for states rights and against Federal over-reach...unless it means more money in the pockets of rich people.
  2. Wouldn't it be funny if we pushed nuclear energy?

    Where is the Outrage over Boeing 737-MAX?

    Interesting complaint that the shareholders have against Boeing, no? "Deceived" is a strong word...and yet

    So here's the worst part about this, when a satire site posts an article and it's absurdity is indistinguishable from the reality.

    Looks like Boeing shareholders are now holding the company accountable for deceiving about the flaws. Just heard it on the news. Strange, how many lawsuits against the pilots at this point?

    2018-19 NCAA Basketball Thread

    Bear in mind the difference between the two programs at this point: 1) UK...zero accusations against Cal at UK. Lots of "oh we know he's dirty because he's dirty." 2) Duke...actual accusations from an attorney known for having what hecsays he has.

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    Just a heads up, trying to understand Christianity by reading the Bible without a guide is insanely difficult. Bare knuckling it like that is commendable but not advisable for the purpose of understanding what you're reading. The gap between us and when the texts were written is so vast that you miss so much. Context clues are missing, cultural clues, historical clues, literary clues all of it gone. It's why there are so many uneducated preachers filling pulpits weekly that just scream about sex, abortion, and going to hell.

    Massie needs to be put out of his misery, no one this ****ing stupid should be forced to suffer like this. At this point it's about mercy. This is the Republican party. https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2019/04/09/john-kerry-fires-back-at-climate-change-degree-question-sot-vpx.cnn

    Enes Kanter was under investigation at the beginning of the season which is why Cal sat him. As for the rest of your post I'll just point out that you didn't offer ANYTHING that might prove your accusations. Just conspiracy theories.

    The Liquor Thread

    I personally know the owners, and that distillery is in my town. I haven't had their rye yet, but the 4 year is a personal favorite of mine, but then I like wheated bourbons and to me the taste test is like a young Weller with a thinner mouth feel.

    Rich Barnhardt UK A.D. told Cal he wanted a clean program when he hired. It was one of the main reasons Cal sat Enes Cantor. Some people get so annoyed by facts. That said name a SINGLE fact (not speculation or wet dreams) that shows Calipari's involvement in EITHER case at UMass or Memphis. I'll wait....

    Coach K definitely under performed given his Nike recruits. Cal's boys started the year sketchy and had inconsistency at times so I wasn't hopeful about our run this year. Getting to the Sweet 16 was a good run for that group considering the year they had, even if the talking heads were building them up, I didn't agree with any of that silliness. Duke however should have ran the table, it shouldn't have even been close.

    AND FOR THE RECORD: I'm not trying to start an argument or debate anyone here, I'm talking about what I believe and my experience, it's just that what I believe falls in that strange place that exists and has experiences in both sides of this discussion.

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    Oh, I completely agree you see all the time about charitable giving with too much going to overhead, but churches get a pass because most givers are locally part of that community and see their giving as maintaining the programming of that church rather than giving to a non-profit help organization which is why the giving number studies between believers and non are skewed. As to your question, most churches run on a yearly budget based on previous years numbers so when giving drops everything drops at the same rate, but missional giving for the vast majority of churches is treated like the cable bill, a luxury for when everything else is paid. It was one of the things that constantly pissed me off. I mean even from a pure business perspective you gotta spend money on lead generation if your numbers are dropping. When we tried to start our mission to Guatemala we spent a year traveling all over trying to gain support and only ended up paying for our gas. A couple other missions groups we were connected with found the same results, and that was 2013-14ish.

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    Those stats are a bit skewed in my opinion because the religious people in those studies are tithing which more often than not goes to paying a pastor's salary, and funding the church budget, which is in most cases heavily focused on paying overhead costs (facilities etc), normally less than 10% of church budgets are dedicated to charitable work and or missions. That is coming from 20 years worth of experience working with numerous churches in a system who's books are open within the denomination.
  19. When the guilty speak openly it's always interesting to see who tries to silence them. What are the odds that those at Nike who decided to press charges against Avanatti 1) didn't know the full story 2) didn't think he had what he said he had 3) didn't think he's air it all 4) decided they had less to lose

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Still better than Hillary...because no matter how bad ANY of this is, no matter how many laws he breaks, no matter how many people he hurts it is all better than if that cleft-crotch had been elected...because emails, and socialism, and cigars, and gunz, and the abortions our daughters receive when they get knocked up by the black kid from the wrong side of the tracks...oh wait...
  21. My personal feelings about what happens to Duke with various hand/powertools is irrelevant to the facts germane to the case...they may drive my interest in the case tho.
  22. Yep, it's pretty difficult to be successful at it if you don't.

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    Christians love to quote how CS Lewis was an athiest who sought to prove the Bible wrong and ended up converting. I suppose I'm a bit the opposite, but I won't sell nearly as many books. ....oh and he built the pool that he pushed you into where you are now drowning...and placed you next to it where he could push you in. That said I tend to favor Jesus' ethic and philosophy even if I have found serious fault with the spiritual aspects of the religion.

    What do you Believe??? (Religion)

    The difficulty that we have is that the church has decided that the reason those insects exist is because of the humans that were created to live in this world who weren't afforded but a single mistake. So whenever people in the church raise these issues the best they can do is blame themselves or "Adam" for ****ing up so long ago for which everyone else must suffer the consequences. The ENTIRE system of theology is predicated on the idea that the first man sinned and now EVERYONE else has to suffer while God waits in his mysterious timing to resolve the system that he created, but only for a certain few who repent of the sin they were born with, through no fault of their own, and praise the god who created a system through which they could be damned to eternal punishment through no fault of their own. It's a bit like getting pushed into a pool by god and while you're drowning having god offer to pull you out, but ONLY if you admit how awesome he is and that he's the only one who can save you.
