A Life Nuanced

A Life Nuanced


By: Perrie Halpern R.A.  •  327 comments  •  56 minutes ago
I realize that I am not the easiest person to understand. It might look to some that my positions are all over the map, and they are. Even within a position, I might sit down in a spot that is somewhat surprising, even to those who thought they knew me. I live in that dangerous place in the twilight zone known as independent. The unicorn of rational thought. It has taken a big part of my life...
Apr 17 10:53pm @20.2.13 I am not partisan per se. What I am is decided! I speak truth to all the good guys and the 'knuckeheads' besides. What I have never been able to stomach in life is manipulative, gross, abusive...
Apr 17 5:30pm @10.2.12 May I add: Japanese white-collar workers are already being replaced by artificial intelligence By Dave Gershgorn January 2, 2017 Most of the attention around automation focuses on how...
Apr 16 9:35pm @11.2.12 Well, opposition research might stir up something surprising about "pee-wee's." So better to establish "the Gay" transparency up front! On the other hand, republicans are "OKAY!" with not knowing...
Apr 16 9:06pm @21.2.14 I am good with Biden in any kind of setting.
Apr 16 8:52pm @21.2.13 Frankly, I don't mine admitting that change and diversity is breaking out across different hemispheres of our political landscape. It is a "buttiful" thing to experience. Same-sex marriage...
Apr 16 8:14pm @21.2.12 Out of all that you stated, you will probably think it odd that I single out this part by means of posing another question: In 2016, did you vote for Hillary Clinton? This specific question is...
Apr 16 7:55pm @21.1.11 Well, since for you the question is settled. Lies, lies, and lies on top of that simply don't matter to you. Let's hope Trump in a second term does not lie about administration plans to use/not use...

Apr 16 3:36pm @21.1.7 Trout G', my question to Perrie may have been a bit forward and I admit I felt I had nowhere else to go with it. It would not bother me in the least if she did not deal with it on its face. I...
Apr 16 2:46pm @21.1.1 I just got to ask. If push came to shove, would you vote for Donald J. Trump knowing what you do now about this man? He has turned government on it head in three years time! He lies profusely. He...
Apr 16 2:37pm @21.2.1 I do not know you well enough to question your sincerity on this. That is, you speak about someone who in no way, shape, or fashion is attempting to enter the race. So, why waste hope? I will have...
Apr 16 2:05pm @20.2.4 You're do fine, my dear. For the record, I am not opposed to republicanism, per se. I simply must detest and protest when 'the whole head is sick' and the body is absent from rushing aid and...

If Ilhan Omar Is Killed , Will President* Trump Be Held Responsible?

If Ilhan Omar Is Killed , Will President* Trump Be Held Responsible?


By: JohnRussell  •  200 comments  •  15 hours ago
The president* tweeted out a video interspersing comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar with footage of the terrorist planes hitting the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11.  Trump immediately presents his followers with a belief that Omar condoned the attack or maybe even was part of it.  This is the president of the United States acting in a way that could very well lead one of his...
Apr 16 10:58pm @15.2.6 Jasper! I looked in to CAIR's founding (1994) and it LA Chapter (1996), so far I can agree with you that Ms. Omar is off on her founding date and its relationship to 9-11. However, I wish to take...
Apr 16 9:44pm @15.3.1 Where is your evidential count of dead Jews and "infidels" by Ms. Omar' hand, authorization, or conspiracy? Greg, I'll wait. . . . She did run in a campaign for Congress against a republican, I...
Apr 16 9:41pm @15.2.5 Who the heaven are you and since I don't know you, let me ask you have you done your 'homework' on me? And, how do you get "backtrack as much" from one or two 'rushed' comments? Huh, Dennis?
Apr 15 10:51pm @4.2.12 I am sorry if the brush got you if you do not deserve this. My sincere apologies. I write sometime at a fast 'clip' and lately I have just been 'sending them up'! Know this, I try to remember to...
Apr 15 10:37pm @1.4.2 We ought not forget our honored dead. Now speaking of apologists, care to explain what you, conservatives, and republicans did in protest or outcry over the dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School?...
Apr 15 10:28pm @1.2.4 "Bro" fish, President Donald Trump is a talking and tweeting ass. I say this, because sometimes it is good to have a president slash leader who understands the meaning of "give it a rest." Oh, but...
Apr 15 10:22pm @18.1.4 "Good" fish, it would depend on many factors—including how much influence you held sway over someone. Degrees matter.
Apr 15 6:24pm @15.2.3 Okay, my friend Jasper. I simply have not had the time to look into CAIR's beginning. I am busy these days. However, when I glance it, I won't mind fully supporting your statement! However, I do...
Apr 15 2:20pm @15.2.1 Okay, another good catch - if so. I really didn't mean in every specific detail, just that she is appears to be steeped in the topic of Islam 'causes' and politics in America. This is me flying...
Apr 15 2:15pm @15.1.1 OMG! I just noticed that. I type (these days and move on). It is a typo. I meant to state, "fear-less." (Tee-hee.) Great catch!
Apr 14 2:18pm @15 Okay, so I finally got some time free to do my 'homework' of listening to the full speech to CAIR by Rep. Ilhan Omar. You can listen to it at normal speed or speed it up on the settings wheel (I...
Apr 14 12:13pm @5.1.18 I "heart" listening to all-sides, even when it frustrating, bizarre, and heart-wrenching. You should listen to right-wing radio commentators (the "heavyweights") tear republican/conservative...
Apr 14 2:53am @5.1.14 Sadly, I have to agree. You should hear them on AM radio. They speak of themselves as tied to the land and all that is good in it. It's infuriating. It's propaganda. It's twenty four seven. Some...
Apr 14 2:28am @7.1.12 We do not stand for any man who lies to us, this nations citizens, and says any combination of words which he chooses to string together to us. Conservatives you can have Donald Trump's tired, old...
Apr 14 2:09am @4.2.8 Yeah see if you conservatives can keep up with him the next so many months, you 'guy' is gearing up to go all 'punch-drunk' on this nation. Question is: How will you like him then?
Apr 14 2:05am @4.2.7 Yeah, some sentences to not hold up to close scrutiny without dissolving into a puddle. I am glad you tried it all the same. It makes clear that you are not interested in fixing what ails this...

Apr 13 2:32pm @8.1.5 My "heroine" she is not. Indeed, I loosely hear of her—usually through these 'red-hot signal flares' conservatives set off - hoping to go viral against her. Honestly, I wish she would assess that...
Apr 13 1:46pm @8.1.3 Hi friend Jasper! I don't defend Omar's comments, per se. I just do not like people piling on a "nothing burger." 911 is honorable. But, it is not unmentionable in the context of whatever she was...
Apr 13 1:35pm @5.1.9 Well "America" will just have to see about that, eh? (Like the Overton Window point-out.)  So the Right has 'found' its voice for the times? Well, you do know what they say about "evolving" - it...

Apr 15 6:05pm @3.3.5 Well, a 'pat answer' won't cut it here, Gordy. That you are not interested in the slightest of a being who won't commit to be examined by human 'tools' and hands does not mean there is no evidence...

Apr 15 11:47am @3.1.9 The operative word is, "pass." (Smile.)
Apr 15 11:45am @3.3.1 However, after reflection, how likely is Science to be 'god' since its adherents only see it usage as a mere human tool to use and at other times to discard?
Apr 15 11:39am @9.1 I loved her and you just now provided me her real name: Gillian Anderson is rich in this role and I want to see more of her too. Her Marilyn Monroe portrayal is 'to die' for! Especially when she...
Apr 14 2:34pm @8 The 'gods' of industry can't get no love, from their adherents!
Apr 12 4:15pm @3.1.6 No, I don't think that is it. President D. Trump is rocking the presidency, tilting it farther and farther over to the conservative vision of the United States. Of course, as a liberal I find a...
Apr 12 2:51pm @3.1.4 BTW, if President D. Trump is able to hold on to the office of president, if it is even close in fall 2020 election, I am seriously going to have to rethink 'hanging out' with the Democratic Party....

Apr 11 7:01pm @5.1.6 Earth is an Eden paradise and a paradox besides. For now, it appears humanity is Earth's steward; treasures and woes. Will this be the case forever?  Not in my opinion. And Nerm_L, you and I can...
Apr 11 6:43pm @3.2.8 Krishna, do you have any remark on what the "modern" opium for the masses is?
Apr 11 4:59pm @3.2.6 If you are here to argue and do 'combat', miss me with that. Not interested. If you want to engage in that which moves us both forward, let's try it!
Apr 11 3:18pm @3.2.4 The logic question has a connection to your comment. The question you ask me is clouded in your own behavior in our discussions. That being you 'probe' others with (religious) views which are...
Apr 11 3:13pm @5.1.4 On these points, I will partially add - okay. As, I do not know your background in religion (or Christianity), Nerm. (Smile.)
Apr 11 2:48pm @5.1.3 Did you quote yourself? Curious. Anyway, it is human life that terminates. Therefore, it is fleshly life which is corruptible. (Remember for us, life is in the blood.) Thus, spiritual life is...
Apr 11 12:40pm @3.2.2 The question is this: Is all of life, logic?  Is the sum total of your life, logical?
Apr 11 12:34pm @5.1 Very enlightening. However, the theme of Jesus is that God took on the form of man in order to absolve humanity of a 'function' it could not accomplish on its own behalf. You get the...
Apr 11 12:09pm @3.2 It is a theory and activity of some humans to replace the "old" God of faith with the 'new' gods of human achievement in the age of science, medicine, and technology. There is this newly discovered...
Apr 11 11:57am @4.1.4 "Loved it!" Waiting. . . .
Apr 11 11:52am @4.1.3 It is a bit indulgent of getting to its point. Mr. Wednesday ("ODIN") is long on his dialogue, but he is one "heaven" of a performer! Moreover, the cast is 'spot-on' in trying to flesh out...

Scientists added human brain genes to monkeys. Yes, it’s as scary as it sounds.

Scientists added human brain genes to monkeys. Yes, it’s as scary as it sounds.

Scientists in China have created a new kind of monkey . It’s got a human brain gene. And that just might make its intelligence a little bit more like ours. That, in turn, makes its fate — and its very existence — very ethically fraught. In a study published last month in Beijing’s National Science Review journal, researchers took human copies of the MCPH1 gene, which is...
Apr 12 11:54pm @8.1.1 I should have emphasized the human gene aspect more, Freefaller. Thanks for the info, nevertheless! So what if the 'coding' does not happen in these experimental monkeys, but they grow up and...
Apr 12 7:02pm @8 Actually, what I am really thinking (all along) is WHY?! What kind of human being is this scientist and his cohorts to infect a creature with a human virus, literally?
Apr 12 2:56pm @5.1.1 Nope. I never got the anime 'bug.'  Seriously, I bypass the stuff. Though, I have heard it is a powerful 'drug.'
Apr 12 2:30pm @5 Is China the new 'front' on government-sponsored, "mad-scientism"? Will China be that rogue nation for gene research which shall not be spoken?
Apr 12 2:27pm @4.1.1 HA! I had to look that one up! Seriously, what is China after with all these shared gene experiments? Better humans? Different humans? Advances in the Chinese brain?
Apr 12 2:01pm @4 I wish to know what you all think on this question: Will these monkeys have identity crises? And how can they be psych analyzed to determine it?

Apr 03 10:42am @7.2.161 You don't have to be interested in what I have to say. I did not seek you out for this or anything else, or figuratively 'gaslight' you.  It is not right. In fact, you are in the wrong. If you are...
Apr 03 12:53am @7.2.153 "..." I never mentioned YOU. But, I know why you mentioned ME. And, it does not matter to me. You are welcome to your opinions and I certainly am welcome to mine. No he is not going to answer...
Apr 02 11:56pm @7.2.147 I know, I know, I get it for 'coming and going.' /s But it is alright, and its okay, I will make it anyway.
Apr 02 10:37pm @7.2.144 Riiiight. Nice. Dodge. Expected. Delivered.
Apr 02 10:30pm @7.2.142 What the heaven are you writing about now? You, above anyone else, know what I write about. So don't even try it. In fact, you could have answered the question: Do you believe in the...
Apr 02 10:12pm @7.2.140 Hi Raven Wing, I have been "in discussions" with Tig and nearly each of these individuals, since NewsVine 201—. I take no liberties with this. Ask them if they believe in spirits. I know how they...
Apr 02 8:18pm @7.2.137 Back from your respite. Fired up and ready to go! I see now.
Apr 02 8:15pm @7.2.136 You are not neutral. Evidentially, some of your are atheist activists. Case in point, last week Perrie and I were discussing a point on Abraham and the offering up of his son Isaac to God, a...
Apr 02 8:01pm @7.2.133 Tig, you are not opposed to feelings are you? Curious. I won't bother offering supporting biblical evidence, because you are compelled to ignore it anyway. Back to feelings. . . .
Apr 02 7:52pm @7.2.131 You're being biased again. . . . Yes, it is DS's seed and one could easily not remember this because of writing back and forth to you so regularly. You have been writing comments for nearly...
Apr 02 7:49pm @7.2.130 Ditto, Sandy. Ditto. Ditto.
Apr 02 7:25pm @7.2.126 It is surprising that Tig has not assisted you on the proper manner of declaring "Impasse." Because he pulls my chain on nearly every 'misstep' in process. Moreover, as I stated already, none of...
Apr 02 4:52pm @7.2.122 "..." Challenged and contradicted about what exactly? That my "anecdotal" occurrence didn't happen. That the anecdotal stories in the the New Testament did not happen? Why not? Because they did...
Apr 02 4:35pm @7.2.121 "..." Please, I'm bored, not angry.
Apr 02 3:20pm @7.2.119 Well Tig, maybe it is reasonable to move on. You may have heard the one about the definition of insanity . . . .
Apr 02 1:49pm @7.2.117 Your 'argument' is so much nonsense. If you can not figure out what is going on after all this time in these many, many discussions maybe you should consider moving on to other issues on the site....
Apr 02 12:59pm @7.2.115 "..." You are a SKEPTIC. Hello? Since God is God, then God can find you anytime God wishes. So sit. wait. or. go. about. your. business. You've probably heard all the "sharings" you need, so...
Apr 02 12:48pm @7.2.114 "..." You don't really want to know what you sound like here. Let's just call it biased and leave it at that.  The nerve you have got to tell me who I should discuss matters with and what I...
Apr 02 12:44pm @7.2.113 "..." I find it ironic, laughable even, that you care what spiritual people believe. Although, you may say your 'role' is to better society for which religion is a public enemy; that is a cover...
Apr 02 2:35am @7.2.109 I am defending what I believe in. That you can not separate the defense of the faith from evangelism is not any problem of mine. It is not as if atheists are not here attempting to destroy world...
Apr 01 10:41pm @7.2.102 You're welcome.
Apr 01 10:40pm @7.2.101 Okay. Thanks for sharing.
Apr 01 9:56pm @7.2.96 According to the Oxford English dictionary, a skeptic is someone who doubts the truth of Christianity and other religions. An atheist.
Apr 01 9:21pm @7.2.94 Whatever Gordy. *Yawn. One would think to hear it stated by atheists that you are emotionless, spirit-less creatures. But that would be a lie straight out of hell, because you do have...
Apr 01 9:08pm @7.2.93 Why won't you respond to him on my behalf?
Apr 01 9:07pm @7.2.92 What you do not understand is I am not TRYING to persuade a skeptic. For that matter, being a skeptic is NO BIG DEAL.  Why not? Because a skeptic is only such a person until they are persuaded by...
Apr 01 8:27pm @7.2.88 See @8. Maybe stop spinning your time?  I no longer am interest in rank scoffing!
Apr 01 8:21pm @7.2.87 I am not missing the mark. You are making a separate point about the natural order of life. Thus, you are missing the spiritual case I am making: Christians believe in God after this manner: "..."...
Apr 01 7:26pm @7.2.84 At some point, Apostle Paul realized that he was not going to be able to inform believers' answers to every question they could come up with about the "heavenly father."  Even Jesus cautioned John...
Apr 01 6:42pm @7.2.82 Actually, it is equivalent to an atheist scientific profession of, "I don't know, will await new information." Don't you think so? Moreover, the atheist thinks believers are a 'variety' of...
Apr 01 3:51pm @7.2.77 "..." The egg. Why?
Apr 01 3:26pm @7.2.75 I take exception to your calling me intellectually lazy, when I take the time to look at all sides of an issue on a recurring basis. Which you know from all the board discussions we have...
Apr 01 3:22pm @7.2.74 What could/would you know about my 'societal pressure' which does not affect you, or my 'upbringing' which has nothing to do with returning to a life of faith. I was done and away from my past...
Apr 01 1:48am @7.2.60 The beauty is in the words in the first part of the package and at its end.  In the third section trying to reduce everything he has prior uttered about the being called us into a 'dust bal' of no...
Apr 01 1:35am @8.1.2 [delete]
Apr 01 12:14am @7.2.56 You might as well ask what does "infinite perfection" mean if it means what we see in this 'dingy,' bitchified world on a daily basis. Dig, this is not God's perfection. God is perfect in God-self....
Apr 01 12:11am @7.2.54 'Dying' media death Step 2! (Gasping.)
Apr 01 12:09am @7.2.53 We're dying here a slow, tedious media figurative death. (Last gasps.)
‘I cut people,’ a megachurch pastor threatened as she preached. Her target? The local newspaper.

Hope Carpenter was met with resounding applause before her monologue at Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., on Sunday. The crowd was excited about their guest pastor — after all, she’d led the congregation with her husband for nearly three decades before they moved their show to a church in San Jose last year. In her return, Carpenter delivered a fervent lecture on the importance of...
Apr 02 5:07pm @3.2.7 HA! You better know what you talking 'bout!! (Smile.)
Apr 02 4:02pm @3.2.3 I consider a great many things in this world to be light-hearted and flying under the banner of "free-speech" Veronica. What is it I hear my fellow liberals exclaim, 'say what one will as long as...
Apr 02 3:44pm @3.2.1 Okay, she was in a church 'sanctuary,' which means something spiritual to people in the building. But your point is well made, she really did not need the direct comment. But, context does matters....
Apr 02 3:38pm @3.1.1 Not a big deal, ignore it.
Apr 02 2:43pm @3 I do not particularly like Pastor John Gray's approach to ministry. I do not especially know much about him/wife/ministry. I have loosely observed that he associates himself with some...
Apr 02 2:34pm @2.2 JR, Jesus did not carry a weapon during his ministry days according to the Bible. That was not what Jesus' mission.
Biden on 'awkward kiss' allegation: 'Not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately'

Biden on 'awkward kiss' allegation: 'Not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately'

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Sunday addressed an allegation that he inappropriately kissed a Nevada candidate for statewide office in 2014, saying in a statement that "not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately." “In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort," Biden...
Apr 01 12:18am @7.1 Speaking of good old Brett. The democratic House is supposed to re-investigate what did not happen in his case. So fancy a conservative bringing that up!
