    Handyman-turned-squatter hunter outlines ‘nightmare scenario’ when illegal migrants catch on to housing laws

    Federal Government is asleep. I saw foreclosed HUD homes in a couple of states that were auctioned off with tenants inside. Quite a discount too if someone wanted to deal with them. I would propose the police make the owner and renter sign an affidavit. The affidavit would clearly state that if...

    Our Military Is Weak. That Should Scare You

    On the bright side the US Navy looks pretty good. China has more ships but half the tonnage of the USA, Russia has about a fourth of the USA tonnage. The USA Air Force is similar. (Some figures are shown below) The question is what will a WWIII look like and is the USA prepared for cyber...

    Why it's better to strategically not go to church especially when you're young and introverted see 1 Cor 1-10

    You are right it is better if everyone could walk in harmony toward each other. Unfortunately, that will rarely happen. The pastor over generalized but what if in the past there were church goers that barely knew anything? Rather than preach though it is better to listen. Maybe he had other...

    Why it's better to strategically not go to church especially when you're young and introverted see 1 Cor 1-10

    Yes those two experiences are awful but rather than dwell on them I would forgive and move on. Also, think about the good things that occurred from going to church or the college group. There must have been something to keep you interested. Of course not all pastors, or churches are alike. As...

    (Rant) I'm beginning to lose faith...

    I am sorry you struggle so but God is your answer, not your problem. In your heart you know that is true. We all blame him sometimes for things we do not like but the reality is that if we follow and trust God things are going to be good. Your mixed up in your identity, and rightly so but lucky...

    This is aimed at republicans...Why Trump

    IF we make it through biden and no war I will feel better. I do think if re-elected Trump with be emboldened and that is not a good thing, though still likely better than biden/harris. Crazy times ahead coming for sure no matter who is elected.

    This is aimed at republicans...Why Trump

    Thanks that was informative. It still takes a 2/3rds vote and the need to wait a year, so in reality other than some hard feelings Trump's own personal preference means no policy change. Let's hope though that Trump is asked about N. Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Israel and other potential hot...

    This is aimed at republicans...Why Trump

    He has no policy aspirations with NATO other than to have the other members pay their 2% of GDP to their own military preparedness. It actually is working and he is right on that. Besides, Trump alone could not pull us out of NATO it requires a 2/3rds vote.

    Feeling hopeless

    You are sealed with the Holy Spirit when saved. What Does It Mean to Be Sealed with the Holy Spirit? I do not think God rips the Holy Spirit out at age 18. You could have murdered several and still been forgiven. Only you can judge if you sere saved. It is a matter of your faith but if you asked...

    This is aimed at republicans...Why Trump

    I agree that Trump is a tough one to vote for as far as character goes. However, when it comes to policies he is a better choice than whoever the democrats run (Biden seems doubtful). What policies? He is tougher on China, stands up for USA trade, Stands up for Israel, Stands up for the unborn...

    Feeling hopeless

    I am not Baptist either but I do believe in the Southern Baptist doctrine "once saved, always saved." I have listened to the late Pastor Dr. Charles Stanley on this and he and others make good sense. Some specifics you can look at in the bible is the "sin unto death." It is found in I john...

    Which was your favorite car?

    It ran good. Amazing those cheap prices back then. I made 2.00 an hour while in school but always had gas. Cruising was still real too in the midwest anyway.

    Which was your favorite car?

    I had a 66 lemans but only a 326. Yes, not as reliable as the electronic cars today but fun to work on. Might be easier to replace the points or coils after an EMP though than what you would need for a modern car.

    Jesus Did Not Baptize

    Thanks, As I more fully read that link I sent I do disagree with the latter thoughts of the author about baptism not being needed at all. Next time I will make sure I read the entire article. There are other mainstream Christians that think Rom 6 is the baptism into the body of Christ and not...

    "Changing weather patterns have increased the frequency and severity of catastrophic weather events," says Church Mutual about dropping coverage in TX

    Yes, you are right. If the churches were all near each other they could not self insure. If they were random in many states, it is unlikely that claims would be too catastrophic all at once. If mortgages are involved it is more complicated too. I imagine there will be a shift in how they build...

    Jesus Did Not Baptize

    Romans 6 I think is about being baptized into Christ, which is different from water baptism. Does Romans 6:3-4 Teach Water Baptism? I think the answer might be that Jesus could not baptize in his own name. By making others do it there always was a witness. Perhaps he could not bear witness...

    "Changing weather patterns have increased the frequency and severity of catastrophic weather events," says Church Mutual about dropping coverage in TX

    Seems it would be easy with so many church to just pool the insurance funds and pay out for any damages each year. Could be they will save money anyway. Lots of churches all in different locations seems like it could work. Also, reinsurers might be willing to provide a policy where if x amount...

    Red State Holdouts Feeling Pressure to Expand Medicaid

    Seems like a no brainer to expand. Yes, you save the Federal budget and spend some state money but the returns to the medical community and those that need health care aid are better than not expanding. The GOP has had years for their alternative but I never hear too much about their reforms.

    Persecuted for the Gospel.

    I am glad that you are caring enough to share the gospel. I used to do that when I was younger and trying to start back up again. The devil pulls out all kinds of tricks and distractions. If you are not doing this already, keep praying and ask others for God to show you who is most fruitful and...

    Which was your favorite car?

    1966 GTO. I had a chance to pick one up for 500 dollars in the early 80s but I was too young to scrape together the cash. So sad but at least I got to experience all the great muscle cars of the 60's early 70s. If you think there is a better era for cars, maybe? But everyone with these cars had...
