    Isn't that an oxymoron and doesn't that say something about the participants? 
  2. ThePilgrim added a post in a topic: Senators Open letter To Iran   

    I could be wrong not looking up all the pertinent facts before I post this, but, What are they authorized to do by the Constitution of the United States?  I do not believe they are authorized to do things that only the Executive branch is authorized to do, such as dealing with foreign governments.  They have the right to veto treaties I believe, not negotiate or interfere in those negotiations directly.  They can sit in Washington and shout to the world how bad the negotiations are just like any other citizen can then if it doesn't go their way, veto the treaty.  If the president does something unconstitutional they can impeach him.  Something which none of them seem to have the guts for.  Congress seems to like to make a lot of noise about this and that but really do nothing about anything important.  
    This Iran negotiation stuff is a prime example of that.  Make noise and impress the voters back home, but really do nothing.
  3. ThePilgrim added a post in a topic: A big get-together   

    Things seem to be getting even more interesting in the Middle East.  They say blood is thicker than water so is it possible the sons of Ishmael and their co-religionists are finally having a big get-together?  What does this all portend for Israel?

    I ran across this site that previously didn't know about because I have not followed prophecy sites in the last dozen years.  Walid Shoebat it seems has a site with something to say about the issue:   http://shoebat.com/2015/03/27/is-the-ten-muslim-nation-confederacy-we-see-forming-to-fight-irans-expansion-is-the-same-ten-nation-confederacy-spoken-by-daniel/

    ​God put the mosquito on the earth for some reason.  I don't know the reason, but I just accept the fact that it is a good reason.
    God gave me a beard which I can let grow and itch or shave and bleed.  But you are right, He must have a better purpose for it and I accept that their is a good reason for me having it.  I just don't know what it is yet.

    I thought it was time to post some scientific information on this issue:

  6. ThePilgrim added a post in a topic: Bad news for IMF   

    The International Monetary Fund, which is controlled by U.S. seems to be loosing some of it's power.  The future for the dollar may be in jeopardy because of this development.

    And included among the dependent on the government are the oligarchs and their cronies who control the government in one fashion or another. 
    This cartoon is not funny so I thought I would put it in this thread instead of Humor.

    ​Slaves!

    We know we can trust them to do things for our own good.  So what's the big deal anyway?

    Been there.  Done that.  I agree so many of us tend to just let things pass and say: "aw well what can I do about it."  It seems like when we talk about such things though, we are just called fanatics at best or communists at worst.  Kinda' like screamin' into the wind. . . . no one seems to hear.  Just shut our ears and go on with living. 
  11. ThePilgrim added a post in a topic: Holding wages overnight   

    ​Yes indeed, I think you did.  But then everybody seems to do it . . . . don't we?
  12. ThePilgrim added a post in a topic: Presbyterian Minister Doesn’t Believe in God Yet Defends His Christianity   

    What puzzles me is how do they justify themselves being in the position they are in.  All reason seems to have left their minds.  Rom 1:22-25

    ​I believe Rahab was the mother of Boaz and therefore in Jesus' genealogy.

    ​Thanks, I couldn't think of her name.
    Who was the woman who hammered home the point to the king?

    ​I think that would be the gal who lived in Jericho and helped the spies.
