Mr Hart ignores the physical condition of DDE, LBJ and the mental incapacitation of Ronnie that allowed Nancy to run the country in absentia, to r ecall some recent presidents who had a few infirmities.
kkemerait, I think you may want to go back and read up on recent cosmological literature.
kkemerait, the universe may be 35.8 billion light years across but the observable universe to us is only 17.8 billion light years. everything else is outside our time horizon. (Of course this depends on multidimensional universes not existing)
Even at that, the size of the universe has nothing to do with the probability of life existing elsewhere, I don't think we have a way to develop a rigorous method to do that estimate. It might well exist, but if it is 20 billion light years away, we will never know it exists. I vote we worry about our sensible universe, mainly the more or less 120 light years of space volume. Our progeny can wait to see if someone sends back and answer to the Pioneer experiment.
Fairmon, actually the behavior of this discussion group favors reverse de-evolution back towards that hairy hand in clay's cartoon!
PT - thanks for the reminder (burnt palm leaves) but watch out for signs that do not always reveal the heart.
Ms. Smith is known by her writing on the editorial page for talking without thinking and spouting unconstitutional ideas. This is another example of Ms. Smith's fractured thinking:
The quote by President Obama (that I will take as accurate):
"So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that's what I'm going to do."
The statement by Ms Smith:
"The unconstitutional statement was met with many rising to their feet in support of an imperial president."
What is unconstitutional about exercising whatever Presidential authority one has? I see nothing in there about breaking the law or taking constitutional authority from one of the other two branches of government. If there is a concern the President has overstepped his authority, we have the court for redress.
I think Ms. Smith needs to step back and breathe into a paper sack a few times, she is too worked up hyperventilating over the fact the President might do something within his authority she does not like.
I guess like her friends who have invaded Alton Park and Chris Anderson's district, she could start a recall petition.
ORRMEANSLIGHT "God" is not mentioned in Easter, not one time.
orlight, You give us a good example of the limitation of the latin basis for the KJV. KJV makes a faulty translation of a Greek word oikomonia (economy). The word it translates as "dispensation" actually more accurately means stewardship of a household, extended by who ever wrote Ephesians to mean a plan of salvation, or responsibility for it, as in a "commission."
and by the way, you should back up and read the whole "judgment of the nations" passage in Matthew, remember the part about not having done it to the least of these?, the conversation was about stewardship and gracious use of ones assets. It's the ones who don't that have to sweat a bit.
an ort for the poor boys he normally picks on, but are you guys on the right side of that cartoon?
zab the racism you find "up north" is almost always caused by de facto effects, you will find a few rednecks. You can go out west and hear the same narrow minded thinking only expressed towards Mexican or Philipinos or Vietnamese. You come down south to places like this and you find people who may be a bit more educated than they were in the 1850's but they haven't let go of the idea that some how they are the privileged class, and some how all those folks who have color to their skin end up being the cause of the discrimination they experience. You seldom escape the racism of your parents and your kids cant escape yours. The bottom line is racism is as real down here as it is up north but it has taken on an economic cast. It is much easier to talk about it usin economic terms because it does not sound as "bad."
It's the Ukraine, let them work it our how they may. It is their business, not ours.
