Well, you certainly did a thorough job of refuting each of the true facts described in the post by RIckW66. I'm sure your detailed and referenced reply will be convincing??

" Obama was by far the worst president next to jimmy Carter"

 

It's interestsing to watch people who ignore facts and believe all the lies and propaganda put out by right wing media. Under President Obama,

  • 14 million jobs were added
  • Corporate Profits were booming, setting all-time records
  • The Stock Market more than tripled in value 
  • GM and Chrysler, who were saved by the Bush/Obama bailouts, also set all time sales records.
  • Unemployment went down to 4.9%
  • Housing Sales rose nationally as we had a thriving home market
  • The U.S. was the number one global economic powerhouse. Every major country invests in the U.S.
  • Bin Laden was killed along with a couple hundred of Al Qaeda leaders
  • ISIS lost 30,000 out of 45,000 troops plus much of their territory
  • Median household income rose to $56,516 in 2015, up 5.2% from a year earlier, according to data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Not sure what you mean when you say :

 

"If you had lived in the times you  were quoting from you would lose the comparison to our leaders today. They have problems but not like in the Bible times."

 

We have as many, if not more problems with leaders today. If you travel a great deal as I do, you can see first-hand how corruption is turning the USA into a third-world country where a few of the wealthiest individuals own and control the vast majority of resources and, ultimately, the people. It has become a place where religion is used to control the population, rather than guide policy.

Are you perhaps saying that because we live in "modern times," the Bible is irrelevant?
Which parts of the Bible should we not read or compare our situation to?

Which parts should we ignor:

 

 "Love thy neighbor as thyself?"  

or

"And again I say to you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."

or

"Be kind and tender-hearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you."

or

from Leviticus 6:2

"When a person sins and acts unfaithfully against the LORD,and deceives his companion in regard to a deposit or a security entrusted to him, or through robbery, or if he has extorted from his companion, or has found what was lost and lied about it and sworn falsely, so that he sins in regard to any one of the things a man may do;…"

or

Romans 16:18
For such as these are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.

 

Since people don't seem to change, the Bible has many lessons from which to learn -- even today.

For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

I hope your reply was intended satire.... I do research for a living.

 

When I heard White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer say: ‘Our Intention Is Never to Lie to You’, I could only hear Conway's explanation: Alternate Facts.

 

We now live in an Alternate Reality.

  • A reality in which Trump wants to end endowments for the arts, for PBS or anything involved in culture, education, raising awareness or critical thinking.
  • A reality in which critical thinking and questions will no longer be allowed and "Alternate Facts" will be foisted upon us to be accepted as truth.
  • A reality in which many his cabinet picks are either inexperienced in their areas or have the backgrounds showing they are unethical. Almost all share a place in the top 1/10th of a percent. 
  • A reality in which forbidding the use of the words "climate change" is supposed to negate the changes we see in nature around us. 

Did you know: Sales of George Orwell's 1984 surge after Kellyanne Conway's 'alternative facts'

 

 

Despite all the religious leaders who spoke and prayed at the inauguration, I couldn't help but think of 2 Timothy 3: 2-5 which seems to describe our new president & would-be cabinet members perfectly.  

For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

All who have been duped probably are listening too much to the press and other web sources. Americans need to just watch and  listen to the white house and Sean Spicer to get the truth and updates. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer: ‘Our Intention Is Never to Lie to You’

Listening to Obama's speech and Trump's speech, I could not help but be remind of a quote by H.L. Mencken:


“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright **bleep**.”

He should have added the adjectives bombastic, vulgar, hot-tempered, narcissistic... I can think of a few others.  His need to go after anyone who disagrees with his ideas or his behavior shows he does not have the temperament to be president of a democractic country. I fear for the consequences of his "reign."

 

His and his staff's complete disregard of 2 laws in contacting Russian officials while sanctions are in place, show that they commit treasonous acts as though they are above the law. Fear leaders such as these... money trumps all.


Der Trumper will enter office in 100% violation of the Constitution and his staff has already committed treason under the Logan Act. But Trumpettes and Republicans don't care because they now have total control of the Governemnt, so who's going to prosecutethem?

 

I see their attack on ACA is complete - they made it a budget issue, so no filibuster can stop them, and in addition to eliminating funding for the program, they eliminate the penality for not having insurance.

 

Why do Republicans so hate the American people that they work so hard to deny them Health Insurance?
