Indeed fact checkers should always be fact checked. See what they say about the NY Times, CBS, Snopes, or mainstream media in general, and you'll be able to determine if they are reliable fact checkers.
The most important reason Raul is against home schooling is because he's a Communist, Jim. He met with your former Caesar because they are kindred spirits. So is Francis for that matter. That there are others opposed to homeschooling is not relevant to Cuba, as you know.

No problem if the fedgov wants to maintain fed roads, Jim. State and local roads and bridges are a different matter. And as you know, the fedgov is flat broke. That reminds, there should soon be fake threats of govt shutdown if we don't spend lots more. Can't wait for NY times fake version of events.

Don't give the NKs too much credit. The grid is old and isn't being kept up as it should be. Kind of like roads and bridges (at least in NYS)
Communism doesn't rise to the level of ideology. It is an evil criminal enterprise, and should be held as such and treated accordingly. What its supposed theory is, is irrelevant in light of its practice. We modern folk have such a hard time defining things rightly. We can't even see ISIS as Islam played out to its logical conclusion, because we don't like the idea that false God-hating, people-hating religion actually exists. Political correctness runs amok and all things good and bad are held to be equally valid.

They passed wisdom to me to trust in God for help and not to rely on the government. There is no shame in preparing for disasters. Even the Bible has several accounts and proverbs about preparing for disasters. I will feel sorry for people who think that the government will respond in a timely manner to rescue them. It does not matter whether the SA story is true or not. What matters is whether people can survive through disasters.
Jim doesn't worry about such things. He thinks food comes from the grocery store, and when it doesn't, Caesar will deliver. Funny thing is, it was only a few decades ago that it was typical for people to can and otherwise put up food, not just for hard times, but because it was wise and economical to do so. Still is for those who have eyes to see.
Come on, Jim. You often post links and make no comment. That way you can always say you didn't comment on it. Except the fact is, you let the link comment for you. Though as you say you "could have" posted it if Hillary had won, odds are very great you wouldn't have.
By the way, why on Earth would Putin want Trump to win? Your link says they thought he would take a softer approach to Russia. How's that phony stuff working out?
Also from your link: "The current and former U.S. officials spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the Russian documentsâ€™ classified status. They declined to discuss how the United States obtained them. U.S. intelligence agencies also declined to comment on them."
Don't you love anonymous sources? And made up revelations? Says it all, doesn't it?
So the fashion designers refuse to provide product or service to Melania based on their "closely held beliefs." I wonder where the ACLU and the courts will fall out on this, and how much the fines will be, or how long before they are fined out of business? The usual bankrupt left wing hypocrisy says nothing at all will happen.
From the news: "Four decades ago, in the mid-1970s, young American adults--in the 18-to-34 age bracket--were far more likely to be married and living with a spouse than living in their parentsâ€™ home."
Jim Lincoln wrote: May, I point out the only thing this woman in the SA article has admitted guilt to, is the improper disposal of a body. So, far there has not been a trial of her or any verdict rendered about her having abortion, I don't think I am mistaken about that. ---
The medical examiner's office said the child was aborted during the third trimester, and that he died of "penetrating injuries to the head." Maybe the medical definition isn't a trial verdict, but the trial verdict can't change the medical definition.
btw, if the child so disposed of were not human, there could not even be a charge of improper disposal of the body.

If Luther was guided by the Holy Spirit to retain the scriptural parts of the Mass, and drop the unscriptural parts, why didn't the Holy Spirit guide Luther into dropping his belief in Purgatory? Is Purgatory scriptural?

Maybe the officials have been following SA and don't like man-made hymns or songs.
