13The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers at their business. 15And making a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; you shall not make my Father’s house a house of trade.” 17His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for thy house will consume me.” 18The Jews then said to him, “What sign have you to show us for doing this?” 19Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21But he spoke of the temple of his body. 22When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.

Thank you for this Thursday post, De Pat!

TheseTruths

Here’s the full text of this tweet from the open. May it be so.

Everytime Trump is asked about how the 2024 election will be different in terms of stopping the cheating, he deflects and doesn’t answer the question.

However, earlier today he was asked the question again. In the midst of deflecting (lol) he said something I think is important:

“We did great against him (Biden) and I believe we won by a tremendous amount. And we have proof of it and we’re releasing the proof. It’ll come up a lot over the next period of a few months.”

Think about that. If hard evidence showing what they did in 2020 is revealed to the masses shortly before the next election, it’s gonna be a lot harder for them to do it again.

Timing is everything.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

You know, this evidence coming would explain the bogus prosecutions of Trump by EVERYBODY. If they have to attack Trump’s credibility directly to defend their own, it would make sense.

Brave and Free

In all honesty every AG going after PDJT was probably “elected” in a rigged system. A deep dive into their past would be interesting am sure.

Four Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Employees Found Dead by Suicide in 24 Hours

Three members and one retired employee of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department were found dead by suicide within a 24-hour period, police said.

Police discovered the first suicide victim on Monday around 10:30 a.m. in Valencia, officials said in a statement to CBS News. The second suicide was reported just a bit over two hours later, when detectives discovered another body in Lancaster. At 5:40 p.m., they were called to a home in Stevenson Ranch where they found yet another suicide.

At around 7:30 the next morning, homicide detectives arrived at a Pomona hospital, where a department employee was declared dead. 

Investigators have yet to publicize further details as to the nature of the four deaths, or if they were at all connected. 

The names of the deceased sheriff’s employees will not immediately be released… 

One of the deceased employees was a captain, two worked in the county’s jail system, and one was a retired deputy, NBC News reported.

I doubt that we’ll ever know the full story.

scott467

“Investigators have yet to publicize further details as to the nature of the four deaths, or if they were at all connected.”

____________

Well, you know… what are the odds that four members of the L.A. County Sheriffs’ Dept. all killed themselves the same day, and they’re not connected?

One in a bazillion quadrillion?

The only way it would be even more unbelievable is if all four died of died suddenly.

kalbokalbs

Well, likely they all DID died suddenly. (But I know your intent.)

Hopefully not a double tap to back of the head, kind of, died suddenly.

Druggies rampant, along with low life’s. Yea, repetitive, i am.

mollypitcher5

this seems way over the top…like a cartel would do. “We” would space the suicides out, not them.

Diversity is their strength and OBiden’s administration is their protection.

scott467

Unless they were members of a doomsday cult — which seems pretty unlikely, but… it is Los Angeles — I’d guess they were all killed by some drug cartel over some deal gone wrong.

If that’s the case, I doubt the cartel went to the trouble to make them look like suicides. But the Department might say it was four suicides, because as ridiculous as that is on its face, it’s less humiliating than admitting your Sheriff’s department is so corrupt that four of your people were murdered in one night by drug dealers.

Barb Meier

Four of your people were murdered in one night and in four different locations. Drug cartels get around.

We got you beat up here in WA state.

A convict that got early release by Governor Huckabee moved to WA state. He’d been here for awhile and then one day decided to walk into a Forza coffee shop and assassinate four sheriff’s deputies siting at a booth having morning coffee before going to work.

Whacks FOUR cops, all in uniform, sitting together in a coffee shop. Not a word in the press about them being targeted other than to say this ex-con hated cops so much he just decided to kill four of them.

The local scuttlebutt was that those four cops were dirty. Could have been drugs, could have been a protection racket gone bad – who knows? Maybe it was only one bad cop but he wanted to make sure there were no witnesses so he murdered the others. Funny how he didn’t even try to hurt the baristas who scooted out the back door after the first shot was fired. They surely could ID him.

This is Pierce County WA. We have some dirty cops around here.

They used to have a seatbelt buzzer. There was a brisk business in removing that buzzer. I am sure the same will happen.

Two are diesels and still going strong. The oldest (1987) is a southern truck I picked up for $1,500 and runs just fine too.

I do not begrudge them a shot of cash every few years.

One customer swapped a brake job for a birthday party. (I think he was itching to get the truck onto a lift and have a look.) Well the next day I came back and he said, I went all thru that truck and it is in DARN FINE mechanical shape. It surprised me. 🤓

kalbokalbs

Relative perspective on repairs. Older truck.

So long as the engine and trans are working well, repair it.

Engine or trans goes, likely get another vehicle.

Can’t say i disagree with him.

Gail Combs

Actually I am on transmission #3 for one diesel and #2 for the other. My mechanic is well known for rebuilding them. And he is actually not that expensive. (At ~ a million miles of towing I am NOT complaining)

On the way home, I just passed a used truck for $26K. I can do a LOT of repairs for that money and I KNOW if I get a used vehicle it is an automatic couple thousand or more right off the bat.

kalbokalbs

Trustworthy mechanic and reasonable rates, it can work.

‘enemy astern’ is LoL funny.

Around the DC beltway is 66 miles. I used to live there. Any crazy driving on the beltway back in ’86 would get you pulled over in about one mile or less. No chance to go ‘crazy driving’ around the beltway. Bet it’s worse now.

Chutkan Refuses Trump’s Requested Deadline Delay Because It Would Hamper Her Election Interference

Washington D.C. District Judge Tanya Chutkan refused on Tuesday to accommodate former President Donald Trump’s request for a pretrial delay because it would keep her from hosting his trial the day before Super Tuesday, right as voters head to the polls to vote in the 2024 presidential primary election. 

Trump and his legal team requested that motions for subpoenas in the case, in which the Republican is being prosecuted for his speech about the 2020 election, be due Feb. 9, 2024 instead of Nov. 9, 2023. The Trump team’s request claimed the millions of communications included in the government’s discovery, which “continues to be provided on a rolling basis,” were “not well organized” and would take months to properly examine.

The lawyers insisted that granting Trump additional time to build his case is pertinent to preserving his due process rights. Chutkan, however, who has shown a blatant disregard for Trump’s constitutional rights in the past, claimed “those arguments are unpersuasive.”

…“What the defendant is currently doing — the fact that he’s running a political campaign has to yield to the orderly administration of justice. If that means he can’t say exactly what he wants to say about witnesses in this case, that’s how it has to be,” Chutkan said.

I’d like to know if Trump has any recourse.

cthulhu

Mostly on appeal.

para59r

Is this the case where his lawyers had to get security clearances which were only recently granted and have to review the information in Skiffs where they are only allowed hand written notes?

And yes, expected the evidence to be examined would be disorderly, by order of Jack the Thug. We talked about it months ago. No shame with these demons. 😠

pgroup2

No, but he doesn’t need any. His attorneys have to protect their Bar cards so they must file the motions that would normally be filed in any other case.

TradeBait2

I have been literally watching the slow physical decline of a neighbor friend who works in sales for a company that sells products to hospitals around the region. She is falling apart physically.

Most hospitals are still requiring vendors to show their proof of current jabs to be permitted to enter. The average worker who needs the job either has to quit or get the jabs. She is trading living healthy for making good money and killing herself. 🤪 She is a very nice person whose husband is disabled and overly controlling, who is riding his cash cow wife into any early grave.

There is a culling in progress.

She works for a contractor, for VA. Correct?

Contractor could be requiring their employees be jabbed, again and again.

Not a defense to get jabbed. Walk the hell away.

I understand your situation. My guy took the first jab and another despite hours of talking about the problems with it…had a stroke in Jan this year..and asked me the other day if I thought he should get a flu shot. A flu shot from those ghouls ?? I can’t fix the stupid going on in his head.

Rasmussen poll: A stunning 42% of Americans would likely join a class action lawsuit against COVID vax makers if it was permitted by law
[QUOTE]
Wow. 42% of Americans were vaccine injured! The poll also implies that 500,000 Americans were killed by the jab.
…Their latest survey, released at 10:30am EST on November 2, confirms (yet again) that the COVID vaccine is a train wreck, the biggest healthcare disaster in our lifetime.
The key conclusions:

47% personally know someone who was killed by the COVID virus24% personally know someone who was killed by the COVID vaccine.42% said it was somewhat likely or very likely they would join a major class-action lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies for vaccine side effects. That would make it the largest class action in US history by a long shot.The implications are stunning:

56% of people who got vaccinated are or were vaccine injured in some way. This is because 42% want to sue but only 75% were vaccinated. So 42/75=56%. That is is unprecedented; a complete train wreck for a vaccine that was touted as “safe and effective.”If you believe over 1M people died from COVID, then this poll suggests that at least 500K people died from the COVID vaccine (computed as 24/47×1.1M killed from COVID virus using the two numbers above from the survey)….[UNQUOTE[

Gregory Yetman manhunt: FBI SWAT teams and cops search for Jan 6 riot suspect after he fled through New Jersey woods – as schools are warned to shelter-in-place

• Gregory Yetman, 46, is wanted in connection to the Jan 6 Capitol riots where he was seen wearing a face gaiter and clutching a canister of pepper spray

•Yetman fled into a wooded area in Helmetta, New Jersey when FBI and cops tried to arrest him at 9 am on Wednesday  

• Schools have been issued a shelter-in-place order as they were told that Yetman may be armed 

…He insisted in an interview with USA TODAY in March that he ‘did nothing wrong’ at the Capitol and ‘didn’t pepper-spray anyone.’

You’d think he was wanted for murder. I don’t blame him for not wanting to get locked up like the others, but he is in grave danger because I wouldn’t put it past them to want a scalp to show how unruly the J6 (Trump) people are. I pray for his safety. If they catch him, it’s going to be a lot worse than if he had just gone with them in the first place.

I-81 perchance?

If so it has a reputation for lots and lots of trucks. Hell for a car.

Gail Combs

Yes, I-81. Trucks do not bother me, Idiots in cars do. I have driven that route thru the night more times than I can count.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I’ve been on it once or twice. I don’t remember lots of trucks, but it was a long time ago.

Trucks irritate me especially on hils, you get trapped behind a pack of them and can’t get through because they’re constantly shifting around and using the left lane to do it. I call any group of more than two semis a “truck party.” (“You must stay for a while, we insist!”)

OK more seriously I realize that’s not their intent but dang it can be frustrating some times.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

There has been at least some talk of adding a third lane to each side of substantial parts of I-81.

Gail Combs

They need the third lane.

Happy go lucky

I drive 81 all the time, and I’m convinced some trucks clog up the passing lane on hills intentionally. But crazy people in cars are still the worst.

Gail Combs

“… I’m convinced some trucks clog up the passing lane on hills intentionally….”

It has to do with losing momentum and having NO acceleration. Going up a hill you want to keep every bit of speed you can. It is not as bad as it used to be when the engines were a lot more under powered.

Gail Combs

Since I am driving a diesel usually hauling a trailer, I just get behind a truck and stay there.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Another much more recent aspect of it is that since they started passing those “move over” laws…with apparently HUGE fines for truckers violating them, I’ve seen two people nearly get run off the road as a truck starts to lane change without regard for whether someone’s starting to pass them. And I myself have been cut off (fortunately my brakes and tires are good enough to make your eyeballs touch the windshield).

That law has in my admittedly small experience probably caused more accidents than it has prevented.

Gail Combs

More unthinking idioticracy. I think here the law is you must move IF YOU CAN DO SO SAFELY.

mollypitcher5

Car drivers sometimes don’t understand how long it can take a fully loaded truck/trailer to change a lane especially on a grade.

There’s a lot of impatient jackasses.

Barb Meier

Agree, Molly. Plus slowing down and stopping takes time too. Just like a train can’t stop quickly.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yes…but if you can’t, you’re expected to slow down.

Many truckers would rather shoot their mother in the forehead than do that.

And I am not just talking climbing hills. They’re like that on flat ground too.

I commuted from here (Shenandoah County) north on I-81 and east on I-66 to Chantilly near DC for 11 years. 2 to 3 hours each way depending on traffic.

I remember the year a trucker drove off the highway at night to save a woman who cut in too close in front of him in heavy rain. Where he went off the highway was a steep ravine. He died rather than hit her in her little car. She probably couldn’t see how close she was in the dark.

That happened on I-66 near Front Royal. Truckers bring so much of the stuff we need to survive. I do my best to be careful driving and not make it harder for them.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

On the other side of that balance, a coworker of mine once was forced into a spinout by a trucker making a lane change. The trucker bumped the rear of his car in exactly the way a cop will induce a spinout of a car he is pursuing.

He ended up at an angle against a guard rail and another truck T-boned him but fortunately struck his car at the rear door.

Neither truck stopped. They both fled what could easily have been a fatal accident.

Barb Meier

I live near I-81 and think it is a little better than I-95, but not much. We get lots of wrecks on I-81 and locals often stay on Hwy-11 to avoid I-81. Though if there is a wreck on I-81, we get rerouted onto Hwy-11.

Happy go lucky

I love the sideshow aspects of this, because it makes the FBI look like goons and idiots, and will hopefully push back on DOJ and put an end to this nonsense.

Think about it. The guy “clutched pepper spray”. Is that it? Is that his crime?

Sure, if he maced a cop, I get it. But if he just held a can of pepper spray, I’m sorry, this is becoming IDIOCY. Women carry pepper spray on their keyrings in DC because it’s a freaking jungle. And they sent SWAT and FIB after him?

SOVIET CRAP STATE. FIB should be ashamed of fronting for the sickos at DODGE.

This is an interesting commentary about a current 2nd Amendment case that the Left thinks will be good for them if the S.C. rules in their favor, and this Constitutional attorney says the S.C. probably will rule in their favor.

But he says if the S.C. rules the way the Left hopes, it will actually be great for 2nd Amendment supporters. The MSM won’t report it that way though, so this is a preemptive dose of Gaslight-Be-Gone… 😁

Wolf says: “Vivek is also taking no prisoners with Nikki Zelensky!

>>>>>>>>

I think there is a bit more to it than just the surface. BOTH are First Generation Americans WITH STRONG TIES TO INDIA AND IT’s CULTURE.

Nikki was raised a Sikh and Vivek was raised a Brahmin, of the HIGHEST CASTE as can be seen by the high education levels of both his parents.

What the inter-Indian Politics are between the 2 groups, I have zero idea, but it could certainly play into the animosity between those two.

….

Nikki Haley’s South Asian heritage is historic part of her presidential campaign – ABC News

Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa to Punjabi Sikh parents who emigrated from India in the 1960s. She has said that early on she adopted her middle name, which means “little one” in Punjabi, as her first name and later took on her husband’s last name as her own. Haley was raised Sikh 

….

For those wondering, “where is Vivek Ramaswamy parents from?”, the answer lies in the picturesque state of Kerala in India. The Ramaswamys migrated to the U.S. from Kerala, bringing with them a rich heritage and culture, which played a significant role in shaping Vivek’s life and perspectives…  His father, known for his double roles as an engineer and a patent lawyer, and his mother, a dedicated geriatric psychiatrist, provided an environment of hard work, values, and dedication for Vivek….Vivek’s connection to Kerala, a state in India known for its rich culture, traditions, and landscapes, is a significant aspect of his identity. His visits to the state and his strong ties to its roots have played a pivotal role in shaping his perspectives and values…. https://coopwb.in/info/where-is-vivek-ramaswamy-parents-from/

….

amilNadu on Reddit: The interesting cas(t)e of Vivek Ramaswamy
reddit.com

April 25, 2023 – I also mentioned that Vivek is from Palakkad in Kerala. That’s when it hit him. Apparently, Palakkad has a settlement of Tamil Brahmins and Vivek is from there. I googled Vivek’s caste after the call and, voila, he IS a Brahmin.

The C.E.O. of Anti-Woke, Inc.newyorker.com

December 12, 2022 – A conservatism that puts its faith in unfettered markets would come to inform even Ramaswamy’s understanding of caste relations in the Indian state of Kerala, where he spent summers with his family. Ramaswamy’s family is Brahmin, the highest caste in the Hindu hierarchy…

….

Brahmins and Sikh History

Sikhism attracted people from different demography and caste system and over time these families are part of a melting pot where the caste has no meaning. I am quoting a line from Sri Guru Granth Sahib:

ਰਾਜੁ ਮਾਲੁ ਰੂਪੁ ਜਾਤਿ ਜੋਬਨੁ ਪੰਜੇ ਠਗ ॥

The persuit of dominance, the desire for materials, the lust of beauty, pride of caste & joys of youth; are the deceivers. In the journey of a spiritual life one must rise beyond the deception of these deceivers.

Brahmins are the highest caste and Sikhs have no caste. That could certainly lead to a bit of friction.

Barb Meier

Work experience with a Brahmin lady raised in India – A lady was hired as a programmer for our 8-person graph analysis software dev team. She was very nice and even bought me a piece of jewelry for Christmas. I liked her personally and would bring in fresh dark cherries when they were in season primarily because she enjoyed them so much.

Sadly, she exhausted each of the programmers, one after another with questions. The team lead started and was visibly exhausted. Another programmer volunteered and took over the ramp-up task. After a time, another programmer took over the task. After exhausting all the programmers, she wore out the lone test engineer who knew programming. Finally, she hoped I could answer coder-level questions to fix a bug I’d reported. I can help with GUI workflows but don’t code.

She had taught programming at a college but did not have the mind of any programmer I’ve ever worked with. She would ask so many questions that her colleague would want to do the coding to get her to hush. When she tried to code a procedure by herself, it meandered and had unnecessary stuff that made no sense to me or others.

She went home to India for a month and when she got back, she told me it was such a change because there were servants to do everything for her in India. I believe that was how she was raised. She said she was part of the Priest caste (Brahmins). I don’t know her citizenship status. This was a GOTS program inside FedGov.

She came to the US with her brother and lived with him and his wife. Her parents still lived in India. The tidbit about her growing up surrounded by servants made the light go on for me about her behavior as one of our team’s programmers. Perhaps if I was raised with servants, it would be natural to try to lead others to do my job too. I can’t say all Brahmins are like this lady or if her behaviors were unique.

How we are raised affects how well we fit into various job roles. My dad and uncles were all doers who were curious about how things work. Once I got out on my own, I expected all people to be this way. Not so. Why should they be?

Barb Meier

Perhaps this summarizes the failure of “diversity.” Individuals are not one-size-fits-all cogs, nor should they be. The caste system seems a failure too.

As a chemist I also worked with a high caste Indian — Book Smart, but an absolute walking DISASTER when it came to the lab. I hate to think of the amount of high price equipment that guy managed to destroy.

Gail Combs

That is this guy. He literally destroyed most of the Lab.

In Albert’s case he probably would have simply put his own eye out with the screwdriver.

I managed to break an expensive part one time in school. Fortunately I had bought lab insurance just that one semester.

Gail Combs

This guy confused degree F with degree C on the oven thermometer. He managed to decompose PVC over night releasing HCl gas. Every bit of metal in the lab was corroded. Not to mention you could not go into the lab until it had the gas removed.
It was a real surprise when I tried to open the Lab in the morning.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yeah a lungful of that will definitely not be a pleasant surprise!

It took months before she left for a different job. One person can slow down or destroy high-price equipment in months. The teams who did the work probably figured it out in days.

And figure out how to live and provide for a family with no income.

The lofty people never mention that part, when they preach against materialism.

Food costs money.

Roof over your head costs money.

Taxes cost money.

Debasement of the currency means whatever money you might have is worth less tomorrow than it is today.

But the lofty ones, the ones with NO answers to the practical realities of life, want to keep their heads in the clouds.

What I want to know is who’s paying their bills, so they can afford to be so lofty.

Show me.

Show me how to be so lofty, eschewing income, with debasement of the currency bleeding you dry of whatever pittance you might possess.

If I understand correctly, this is breaking news, the ATF’s bogus “pistol brace” rule trying to outlaw pistol braces was just declared invalid nationwide 😁

At 12:35, after preliminary comments, he says:

“This is a nationwide injunction. You do not need to be in the (jurisdiction) of the 5th circuit; you do not need to be a member of any particular group or donor to any particular organization; in their view, and I’m the messenger in this, I’m not giving you my legal pronouncement on this, I’m passing on their legal pronouncement on this, this is an immediate nationwide injunction… period… for now. Because this will almost certainly be appealed.”

Then he goes on to say that if (when) it is appealed, it will be appealed to the same 5th circuit which has been handing down pro-2nd Amendment after pro-2nd Amendment decisions, and that’s the last court the ATF wants the appeal to be heard by.

Great news!

I’ve been noticing how nothing seems to ever be settled. It seems as if there’s always an appeal or an injunction that has to be decided later, or someone else who has to look at a case. Of course I’m not really correct about this and these things will finally get resolved, but the process seems to be so long. In the meantime, a nationwide injuction is a good thing.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

And then they just pass the law again with slightly different phrasing, so the whole process has to start again.

scott467

That’s lawfare.

It’s like Borg. Their entire eco-system is based on relentless pressure and being well paid to do it, while the people they attack have to earn a living and use their own savings to defend themselves.

No decision is ever final until it gets to the (not)Supreme Court, and when that became the obstacle, they set about taking over the court.

It never stops, not until they are PUBLICLY IDENTIFIED and physically STOPPED.

Good place to briefly report the public school’s response to Grandson #1’s departure to be homeschooled.

Red faced and apologetic would be an apt description. The local admin and teachers knew we were right, the school district did not care unless we pushed buttons legally. They have nobody available to fulfill the needs. We are not interested in confrontation with a failed education system that could not teach our grandson effectively for years. Let them crumble from within while millions of other families across the country take control of their own situations.

Life cycle. Public education was seeded, grew, entered maturity and became corrupted, is now in the dying stage.

His teacher loves him and is having a party for him in the class as it is his last day. He has been doing some homeschooling work each day for several weeks to catch him up anyway. Excited for his future now.

ATF attempts to silence Gun Owners of America.

Apparently GOA finally obtained admissions from the ATF that the ATF had been unlawfully surveilling gun owners, and referenced lots of redactions, but there were no actual redactions in the information released.

When the ATF realized they sent unredacted copies to GOA, they demanded that GOA destroy all the unredacted documents… 😂🤣😂

Unfortunately the NRA is still dominated by Fudds.

And they still brag about the NICS background check bill.

Most people assume they are just bragging about how they prevented it from being a two week waiting period, but read what they actually write: They are glad the check exists because it keeps guns out of the hands of the “wrong kind” of people.

scott467

GOA and at least one other similar organization received a massive inflow of money via brand new memberships, when the ATF’s bogus pistol brace ban rule was decreed from on low.

On account of the interpretation of a judge’s stay against the ATF’s bogus rule applying to anyone who was a member of the organizations who were appealing the ATF’s bogus rule.

Apparently there are somewhere between 5 and 20 million pistol braces ‘out there’ in America.

This caused a stampede of pistol brace owners to join PDQ for around $15 to $30 each, rather than get rid of their pistol braces or risk being suddenly turned into a felon by the rogue and lawless ATF.

Those groups (GOA and at least one other one) probably saw more memberships (and therefore money) in the space of about 3 days than in the entire history of their organizations 😁

Great song 👍

I have listened to Johnny Cash’s cover of this song many times, from his 1994 album American Recordings. The whole album is great, if you like stripped down songs with mostly just Johnny and his guitar.

When I was trying to figure who sang the song Johnny Cash was my first thought but upon hearing Kristofferson I knew that was the version I remember. But it definitely is a Johnny Cash genre.

scott467

Johnny was no spring chicken by the time he recorded it in 1994, but I found videos of him performing Why Me, Lord live from many years earlier.

He played with Kris Kristofferson as part of the group The Highwaymen (1985-1995, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash), so I’m sure they knew and could play most of each other’s best songs.

American Jews on the Left Are Just Shocked by Their Fellow Leftists
“…Left-wing American Jews feel betrayed by the Left. A Left that remains anti-Israel even after the greatest single-day massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, and even though most Palestinians and their supporters explicitly call for the destruction of the Jewish state: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” …”

….

Why are they ‘SHOCKED’ I saw this coming several years ago under OH!Bummer’s immigration policies.

It is quite simple:

In 2020 Pew Research said — “…5.8 million adults (2.4% of all U.S. adults) as Jewish and an additional 2.8 million adults (1.1% of U.S. adults) have a Jewish background. These adults all had at least one Jewish parent or a Jewish upbringing, but most people in this category, 1.9 million, identify with another religion, such as Christianity…”  — LINK

In 2017 Pew Research said —“…Muslims are the fastest-growing religious group in the world. – roughly 24% of the global population… there are about 3.45 million Muslims of all ages in the U.S., or about 1.1% of the U.S. population…  there are 2.15 million Muslim adults in the country, and that a majority of them (58%) are immigrants.
Our demographic projections estimate that Muslims will make up 2.1% of the U.S. population by the year 2050, surpassing people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion as the second-largest faith group in the country…” LINK

 How many Muslims are there in the United States? – Gordon Conwell

October 8, 2019 – Muslims in the USA are a particularly tricky population to count. Unlike many other Western nations, the United States does not ask a religion question on its population census, making it hard to estimate how many people belong to each religious group….

Yet, we estimate that in 2015 there were 4.4 million Muslims in the United States (1.4% of the US population) projected to more than double to 10 million by 2050 (2.6% of the US population). Our figure is higher than Pew’s because we utilize an assessment of the size of ethnic communities in the United States to generate our estimate, whereas Pew’s estimate is based on self-identification in surveys in combination with US census data …

I would be very surprised if 1.4% of the population is correct today. I would estimate, with illegals you are closer to 2.0% or more, fast overtaking the Jewish population.

To put it bluntly the Muslims are out breeding and out immigrating Jews so the DemonRats were ALWAYS going to choose the Muslims over the Jews once push cane to shove.

Not all Charities or Charitable Donors are CharitableAs a non-profit veteran, don’t be fooled. It’s all about the profits.

…………

Agreed. the real difference between ‘For Profit’ and ‘nonprofit’, is in For profit the excess money after ‘expenses’ is called ‘earnings’ and in a nonprofit the ‘excess’ money is called ‘SALARIES’

For example, when I was a teen the highest paid exec in the USA was the president of the Red Cross.

Most charities give SOME money to actual charity but most is skimmed off in various ways since there is ZERO incentive to be ‘lean and mean’ as there is in the for profit world.

When I ran a lab, I spent LOTS of money in Dec. Generally that meant I got a 10% discount over what the cost would be the next year for non-perishables.

It was fun watching the light bulb go on in the head of the Top Accountant. We also got to do ZERO-BASED budget where you had to defend all money spent. Since I had taken accounting courses and I kept very good records, it was a breeze for me.

I sure wish the US bureaucracy had ZERO-BASED budget!!! We would cut the budget IN HALF OR MORE!

Moar than true. Saw this at the user end. Go into a company level staff meeting and the Commander says “we have X dollars to spend and if we don’t spend them by the end of the fiscal year they won’t be there next year so what do we want to buy?”

Then as you travel about to other units offering services you can see the radical updates to new furniture modules, tv’s, and a whole assortment of new office equipment. Commanders got real smart on how to spend their monies each and every year.

He is very correct too. You have to be able to define what the actual problem IS before you can solve it. In many cases it is not nearly as easy as it sounds. Just ask your car mechanic. 🤓

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I have little patience for the mentality that hates people for complaining. “Don’t complain unless you have a solution” means problems don’t get addressed because no one will point them out.

And yes, that’s the implicit first step. You must acknowledge that there IS a problem, or there is nothing to define…much less solve it.

Gail Combs

“Don’t complain unless you have a solution”  DOES NOT COMPUTE. It just does not.

On the other hand, if someone complains my automatic reaction is to try and figure out a way to solve the problem. The whiners hate that.

In the software dev world, problems are called bugs or issues. We see them all the time. We rank them in order by degree of the problem to users. Cosmetic is low, functional is higher, especially if an issue prevents users from doing their job. Some problems are high on the list but the fix requires software updates that either are not available or would conflict with another team’s requirements. Then one has to determine the fix maintenance schedule that all the software users can agree to losing access to their software. It can get very interesting in a complex infrastructure that requires so many different programs on both the back end and front end. LOL
