    My daughter figured it out for herself, about age 7, that the trail of Easter eggs leading down stairs and into the garden could not have been left by a rabbit who came in through the locked patio door, ergo, Daddy was the Easter Bunny. 😀

    Young children believe in magic. It is a charmed life. Let them live it while they can, they will be disillusioned soon enough without you pushing them into it.

    Don’t celebrate too soon: Congress is under no obligation to make the information public. Still, it is a major victory for the principal that presidents are subject to oversight, control, and accountability.

    Interesting. I have Capricorn rising with Saturn just below the Ascendant.

    Which I suppose might provide a helpful throttle re: the conjunction of the Sun and Mars squared with Uranus in my natal chart.

    I’m not an angry man, but if you ever do that again, I’ll poke your eye out.

    on second reading of the article: I’m all in favor of abstruse theological speculation published in abstruse theological journals. Preaching abstruse pc to ten-yr olds from the pulpit as if it were canonical doctrine is way off base.

    It is time to talk about it. Enough famous people have been murdered for bringing it up in public.

    The article to which you linked makes no reference to anyone’s being murdered for calling attention to the sexualization of children. As usual, you’re making things up to sensationalize some personal gripe about America. America has enough real problems without you inventing more surreal ones.

    Well, that is your problem with the Word of God, you pick what you like and leave
    the rest as meaningless, no small wonder you question the scriptures' reliability.
    The picking and choosing was done at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325 by a cadre of Roman Catholic bishops. That was when the canon was established. Prior to that, there were many more scrolls in circulation, held by various Christian churches (each of which could claim to have been founded by one of the Apostles) to have been equally the Word of God. So why do you accept what a cadre of Roman Catholics held to be Scripture and ignore what other bishops, each of whom could trace his lineage back to one of the Apostles, held to be Scripture? The Bible you know did not exist when Jesus walked this Earth; it was invented three hundred years later, redacted from a much larger corpus of writings.

    Renaissance paintings prove doodly squat. This is post-modernist people bending over backwards to make Jesus 'inclusive.' Weird. Strained weird.

    Reagan pretty much ruined the middle class, was a racist corporate puppet and he did nothing about the AIDS epidemic which he treated as a joke but at least he was presidential?
    Reagan was great at acting presidential, but was not a great president. He deregulated the banks early in his tenure, which triggered the greatest bank swindle of all time. His successor, Bush, yes the “read my lips, no new taxes Bush”, had to raise a new tax to bail out all the people who lost their life savings. The bank managers made made off with billions and were never caught. Then there was the Iran-Contra affair. And finally, he cut a deal with the Sauds: the CIA would provide weapons, intel, and money to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan if the Sauds would provide manpower. That manpower morphed into the Taliban, whom the USA later futilely tried for 20 years to drive out of Afghanistan, at horrendous loss of blood and treasure. All Reagan‘s doing. Pfui.

    We gave them the power. What should they do with it?

    1) enact legislation to fight inflation?
    2) pass immigration legislation that is more in line with US economic needs?
    3) crime bill?
    4) find ways to cut government spending?

    I am willing to go on the record and say that none of those things will even be attempted by Republican leadership over the next two years. ...[text shortened]... - maybe Hunter Biden again? Benghazi for the 40th time?

    - Impeach Biden. That'll fix immigration.

    @Kewpie

    Thanks.

    I might just add that most Americans did not want Trump in office the first time, and even more did not want him in office the second time. There is no reason to think that a two-time loser of the public vote is going to fare any better the third time around. The Democrats ran Adlai Stevenson twice; I think they at least learned from that mistake: don't re-run a loser.

    I didn't have the time to read through all 26 pages of that thread, but I did read a good portion.

    Based on your final post in that thread, it seems you got 2 things:

    1) Abuse

    2) Being told that the Bible is all factual and God inspired, because it's the Bible.

    Doubting the Bible seems unpopular.
    It’s unpopular with people who worship the Bible, principally Protestants and Evangelicals.

    @shavixmir

    The pertinent question here is: is @Metal-Brain innocent of self-character assassination ?

    Long past time, actually, but now...

    That's three straight elections where Trump has either lost or watched as his hand-picked candidates have gone down in flames.

    Republicans will probably take the House and can steal the Senate if they somehow draw an inside straight on the river, but in the context of a President with a 42% approval rating in a midterm, it was a histori ...[text shortened]...
    I don't know exactly how, but the GOP must find a way to convince Trump to retire or just go away.
    The lower 48 could take a lesson from AK right now and see how to make bi-partisanship work while dumping Trump.

    https://us.cnn.com/2022/11/23/politics/peltola-palin-alaska-election-results/index.html

    Most Americans want sensible gun control, most Americans want women to have control over their own bodies and reproductive rights, most Americans don’t want Genesis passed off as a scientific theory in public schools, most Americans don’t care whether homosexuals get married but don’t want to see them persecuted either, etc. Most Americans are moderate, but where moderate politicians speak out, they are shouted down by extremists. Wake up, America ! The enemy is not Republicans. The enemy is not Democrats. The enemy is polarization, the enemy is demonizing the other side. The enemy is yourselves when you collectively succumb to a demagogue.
