How can he support such an idiotic, immoral, self-serving individual simply because he's against abortion; as if abortion is the only issue we're dealing with. What about the Constitution? What about our system of governance? Graham apparently has his own righteousness and it is blinding him. So much for this southerner.
Anti-Trumpers do have one thing in common, Cora. They name-call and personal attack a lot, but provide little if anything on which of his policies they disagree with, and the reasons for their position. Why is that?
One wonders what percentage of fires are started by downed power lines? I would think a very low one. Shutting power off is a cover your butt move, which won't do anything to prevent personal carelessness. But it is California.

Rendering to Caesar has a qualification- the things that are Caesar's. Who decides what those things are? Caesar? Caesar has his authority, and it is limited. Read Romans 13, not just verses 1 and 2, but 3 and 4 as well. There is no God-given authority beyond that. In any case, is there something in Scripture that says we shouldn't say uncomfortable words to the antichrist world?

But Jim, don't you remember what your Dem friends said? There were no weapons of mass destruction? Bush lied, people died, etc? Maybe 5000 civilians isn't mass enough?

War is attractive mostly to those who profit from it, or glory in it. Naturally, the people must be convinced that their menfolk are fighting for freedom. Anyone freed lately? Remember, Jim, the last war we had part in winning was WW2. Ending a war by winning isn't a goal anymore, and I might cynically suggest it's because continuing fighting is more profitable than winning. The wars are getting longer, and no goals are set. Don't you ever wonder why?
Again, the issue with Jim's approach to things is that it seems to depend on who is in the White House. When a Repub is president, Christians shouldn't be involved in politics; when a Dem is there, it's render to Caesar time, and we shouldn't be criticizing a sitting president.
Jim is one-sided political, while imagining himself an independent.

You're concerned with morals, yet invariably defend Democrats. Interesting.

What does that have to do with Bernie? He's just another "some pigs are more equal than others" socialist. Maybe he'll sell one or two of his 3 expensive Vermont properties. You know, as a rich guy, just to show how humble he really is.
Andrew Marantz's book named "Antisocial..." would be more properly named Antisocialist. Socialist wackos hate the idea of free speech. Freedom itself is repugnant to them, so it follows. Blaming speech for the actions of lunatic murderers is typical of the left. That is if they aren't blaming the gun they used. Might as well disarm the people while stifling their talk. It's for public safety, don't you know.
One thing true about math, beyond its practical use, is that it helps one to think in an orderly fashion. But thinking is anti-leftist, so leftist control freaks are opposed to it. Like Neil said, the dependent and ignorant are easier to control and manipulate. Calling math racist is a lie, put forth by the real racists who want to keep their base on today's version of the plantation.
