  1. Trading Puig and then 25 min later Puig going out like that is the most Reds thing ever. Seriously, their FO is as bad as the Skins.

    Puig was traded mid-game, then he's banging heads in a fight to defend teammates who won't be his teammates by the end of the game. That's honor.

    Cleveland probably not happy they're trading for a guy who will start his Indian stint with a suspension.

    Please, we get the toddler who had a tantrum and threw the ball into the stands. Cincy-land is not happy this morning.

    But why should they stop? They never face any real world repercussions for all of the lying and shifting stories. This admin is such a non-stop train wreck that there's almost not enough time for actual outrage to seep in whenever Trump does or says something offensive/stupid/dangerous. 

    Oh, you're 100% right, why should they stop? There's literally zero motivation for Trump to stop anything he's been doing. The House can vote to impeach him with 100% yes votes and since Mitch is leading the Senate it simply won't matter. There's simply NO ONE to hold Trump accountable for anything. He knows that he can do and say whatever he wants and it won't cost him a single ****ing vote. All the while the Dems run around in a total **** show like a monkey ****ing a football slashing their wrists over every word Trump says, and yeah I get don't accept and don't normalize, but hell it already is. Until the accountability structures change then Trump can scream the N-word from the roof of the White House skull ****ing a prostitute as he hands the keys to the NSA over to Putin and none of those ****ers will even flinch in their support. We've watched it for 3+ years now. 

    They don't care, and Trump knows that he has loyalists in all the key places.

    I was driving home from work and turned on Larry Elder's show for as long as I could take it, and he was yelling into the microphone about how even if Trump is a racist, it's not an impeachable offense.   FFS...........

    Same story for 4 years...

    He didn't say that!

    Well, he didn't mean that!

    He said it, but is playing 4D chess

    Ok, he meant it, but so what.

    Let's see...you were quick to pull the "blacks kill more blacks" card while completely misunderstanding @AsburySkinsFan's point.  You not understanding the context behind the statistics is something you should probably do a little more research in.  It's a different topic for another day, so I'm not going to derail the thread.  However, it would serve you well if you read up a little on systemic racism and why it's such a problem in many urban communities. 

    White people by in large do not believe in systemic racism. They cannot fathom that the social structures in which they live and thrive might not treat all people equitably regardless of race. It also means that they shoulder some of the responsibility, and they aren't racists....they have a black friend....he came over once.

    And yeah, to your point, I pretty much always ignore the 'second shooter,' reports, as they're basically always untrue. (Honestly I can't remember a single occasion where there was a 2nd shooter).

    Columbine

    But that was a game changer and really hasn't been repeated since. Especially since it's so much easier and as effective to just get an AR with 30 round mags and a bunch of ammo to do as much or more damage than Dylan and Eric did. And you're not breaking the law until you start firing. Heck, if we listen to the Right you won't even be breaking the law by carrying all of that onto school grounds.

    ****ing bunch of morons.

    I don’t see the point in separating mass shootings for shootings, at the end of the day dead is dead.

    I hope you're not in law enforcement, because if you are so simple that you cannot figure out that a drug related murder, a trailer park domestic murder, and a MASS ****ing SHOOTING are different crimes that have to be dealt with and prevented in different ways then just give up now.

    I like to focus on this life, as its the only one I'm sure I'll have

    Yup.

    I spent too many years denying myself the joys and pleasures of life. I watch those around me living afraid of disappointing the sky ghost, and I see myself in them. Looking down in judgment upon those things they could enjoy, all to do what? Sorry, but attending Promise Keepers and men's study groups just ain't doing it for me. You have but one life to live and you will only regret those things you didn't do.

    Live life to the fullest!

    If you’re a devout Christian isn’t death what you’ve been waiting for all your life?? Heaven sounds pretty sweet to me.   And shouldn’t everyone be happy you are there now??

    That's the point I've been trying to make the whole time. What you describe is escapism, and not part of what the Bible seems to teach. Not only that but nearly everything you've been taught about Heaven does not come from the Bible. A devout Christian understands that LIFE is the gift of god, which is why the sting of death has been removed because the resurrection is there to undo death. 

    See that's the whole point of all of it, according to the Bible god is working to restore creation back to its original state, Eden, not in "heaven" but here on earth, with the faithful rewarded with eternal.....wait for it.....

    LIFE.

    Once heaven is seen as the goal escapism begins and death is viewed as the doorway, and not the negative consequence of sin.

    You can’t value their/her life. You made it clear she/you valued her death (and freedom from pain) over her life.

     

    Are you ****ing serious? I didn't value my step mother's life if I see her death as a positive!

    Sorry for you, but one exception the rule doesn’t make the exception a rule. 

     

     

    One exception doesn't make a rule but it is sufficient to disprove the absolute statement you wrote below. You said I "can't", I proved to you that I can, and do. Therefore you absolute statement is false.

    If you value people you must value their life. You can’t see their death as “a good thing” or “neutral” if you value ones life.

    It would be like saying you value your car but are OK with the fact that someone stole it and drove it into a river.

     

    You are super defensive about it.... maybe your more like manson? :D

     

     

    Well, yeah, but lots of things are miracles though....

    To your first point:

    My step mother's life was torn apart by crippling anxiety and depression. She took her life to end the pain she endured daily. **** you if you don't think an end to her pain was a good thing.

     

    To your second...name some miracles then, let's see if they hold up to scrutiny. The previous poster (who ran away)  claimed that miracles are to convince an unbelieving people of the power of god. So surely these miracles will be so plentiful and unexplainable as to drop the scales from my blinded eyes.

  11. So you're gonna proof text one sentence Jesus said from the cross?

     Ok, two can play that game;

    2 Peter 3:8
    "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 

     

    See, more ****ing Rorschach blots.

     

    Going to prepare a place for you gives ZERO indication about when you'll take possession of your new condo.

     

    And I don't focus on the suffering because that's a given. You were the one who said theists don't see death negatively, even while death goes hand in hand with sin. To not see it negatively is to divorce what shares DNA.

    When you're in a car for 19 hours with someone, all kinds of weird conversations come up.  They told me even though I believed Christ died for our sins to be forgiven and hes the son of God that's not good enough, Satan did too, that's why he was messing with him so hard when he was in the desert by himself.  I'm still processing that.

    So what more do they think you need?

  13. Never said that suffering wasn't connected to sin, you are saying that I said that. 

     

    The timetable of what happens immediately after we die is ambiguous at best. You want to attribute a timeline to a god who obviously rejects timelines (considering he transcends time). In your mind Jesus goes to prepare you a place so you have a place to hang out after you die while you wait for his return. At best the clearest image is the throne-room in Revelation but lets not pretend we can do much with literal interpretations in Revelation. However, you have Abraham who believed he would go to the place of the dead, Sheol, where ALL the dead went.

     

    What do I believe happens when you die? Your relatives will spend an inordinate amount of money on a funeral so your body will be preserved in a VERY comfortable box that you will never enjoy all because they feel guilty. They'll exchange casseroles and hugs and try to think of something profound to before they all start fighting over the ****ing will. Meanwhile, you'll be rotting...slowly because of the juice they pump into your corpse because our culture cannot accept death as a natural part of life. Or you'll be on a mantle in a jar. 

     

    What did I believe before? At first I believed in heaven because, that's what my preacher believed, and I believed in Hell because God needs to damn people who aren't me. Then I dropped that **** because it doesn't make any sense. Then I settled in on basic resurrection because that's what the book actually says. Then I woke up one day and never looked back.

  14. Yup, typical Evangelical dichotomy between sin/death as if the two aren't intimately connected. 

     

    Oh, and don't think I ever said Paul fears death, I said that he's accepted his imminent death. This might be difficult but those are two different things. And just because Paul has accepted his upcoming death does NOT mean he no longer views death as a consequence of sin. You are sterilizing death which is common in Evangelical circles because you ignore what the resurrection ACTUALLY is and you reinterpret "resurrection" to mean Heaven because you don't get that actual bodily resurrection of the faithful is the promise of the Bible...not an eternity in "heaven". So you're fine to believe what you choose, it's just not Christianity. It's another religion with Jesus as a hood ornament.

    i think people are talking past each other when they talk about death here.... 

     

    for a TRUE believer, death is no big thing, because you just move on to the afterlife after death ... so life is just the staging ground before the actual big and important stuff happens.   

     

    that is a really big difference ...if you believe it.     in that scenario, allowing death and suffering is more akin to a parent allowing their kids to get beat-up and bruised in a game, and then allowing the kids to stay in a the game knowing there is a good chance that they are going to get really disappointed by losing the game in a really humiliating way (if they behave in the game like you know they MIGHT).

     

    again... IF you completely and 100% believe the story of the afterlife.    (and that is a YUGE "if")

     

    And what I'm saying is that what you have described is NOT what the Bible teaches. Life is not the prepwork, life is the point of it all. God creates life, sin ****s it up, God sends his son to restore life. Death is the enemy. What is being taught in modern Evangelical churches is FAR from that. Which is my whole point, and to push the point further it's what makes the whole thing even MORE unconvincing. That after thousands of years they STILL can't get it right. Oh I'm sure they will say they have, but a brief reflection of their stated beliefs about things like death and what their Bible actually says about death will reveal two very different ways of thinking. 

    But hey no biggie it's just about Jezus the rest don't matter...all you got to do is tell the ghost in the sky you're sorry for the **** you do each day and when you die he'll treat you like the champion you know you are!

    When I was in between jobs, I would spend about $25 dollars on a 10lb bag of chicken breast and just cook the ever loving hell out of it. I would grill it, fry it, bake plain with garlic salt and Italian season or use one of the many marinades that I had. If you're ever short on money, buy some chicken and marinades. You're still poor, but you don't have to eat like it.

    Facts!!

    Whole chickens man! $5-$6 each feed a family of four off one, two if they're big eaters. Learn to break it down on your own and the possibilities are wide open. Right now poultry producers are making a killing off pre-cut packaged individual chicken parts. It's easy to break them down and a youtube vid will teach you how. Try buying ANY other protein as cheap and versatile.

    Do you salt prep your egg plant first? I've heard that if you salt them and let them rest then they will shed a lot of their water.

    No kidding, every time I think about Ayn's Objectivism I think of Guatemala, those who have have, those who do not don't, those who steal are rewarded.

    After all wasn't it Ayn who described a woman being raped as thanking her rapist for showing her the way the world should work?

    That Christians would follow that is ****ing laughable.

    I have no idea why Rand Paul would hate Somalia and use that as a stick to beat Congresswoman Omar with. 

     

    Somalia hasn't had a centralized government in over 30 years. The citizens pay no taxes, except to gangs. 

     

    It sounds like a Libertarian state. He should visit and see his Libertarian views in action.

    Oh, Rand's wetdream would be for all of the USA to be turned into a libertarian third world country.

    Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is out there trying to go after Antifa because going after these ****ers shooting up Churches, and Synagogues, and Schools, and Concerts are also the people that are more likely to vote for him. 

     

     

    Ted Cruz is like every other white Republican Evangelical gunporn loving jackass, white people out there ACTUALLY killing people in ACTUAL mass shootings are not NEARLY as much of a threat as a black person holding a gun promising to defend himself.

    BTW, if you are white, Republican,  Evangelical, or gun lover, and feel this doesn't reflect accurately, I don't give a ****. You are the company you keep.
