re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Wouldn't an all powerful god who wanted a particular person to be president of the USA not try to give that person more votes than their opponent? I do love that even half of trump voters are living in reality enough to think nah god probably wasn't in on this one.

It's trying to pay off the house by 40, retire by 55 and all of these ridiculous financial goals utilizing finances as security, when in the grand scheme, the feeling of security is fleeting. It is very interesting, that I felt richer in college, with a negative net worth, and no money whatsoever than I do now.
You may want to study the concept of Tanhā:

Taṇhā appears in the Four Noble Truths, wherein taṇhā is the cause of dukkha (suffering, pain, unsatisfactoriness) and the cycle of repeated birth, becoming and death (Saṃsāra).[1][2][4]

Who cares if foreign policy is being dictated by the Kremlin? That the relationship and trust we've built with our traditional allies over decades has been completely eroded?

Totally worth it so he and his deplorable brethren have a few extra dollars in their retirement fund.

The key is you get them young and teach them about a higher power with books of fiction. Slowly you wean them off Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny but keep telling them they will go to an evil place forever unless they worship and give 10%. Worked on me for 40 years.

Imagine if you could not teach religion till a person was an adult?

A lot of people are sociopaths to some extent. I think you underestimate how many people read this and smirk and say "yup, pretty much!" while trying to think of how to respond to make themselves appear like a normal person with empathy.

It’s been widely reported that Trump knows how to use a TiVo.

My son's march towards atheism was unguided by my hands. Any time he would bring up things like hell, or heaven, or god and the devil etc, I would respond with something like "Well what do you think about that." And he would tell me what his friends had been saying and I would say "Thats a really interesting way to look at it, does that make sense to you?" And he would most times say "Im not sure" or "I dont know." And I would say "Some of the coolest things about the world around us is that very often, we dont know how or why something is, so we look for answers."

Hes eleven now, and on the fast track to getting deep into the sciences. He wants to be an astrophysicist. We are taking our first trip to LA in a couple months and he might be more excited for the Griffith Planetarium than he is for Disneyland (maybe, they are probably a toss up right now.)

Watching him discover and explore and want to know more about the world HAS to be more rewarding than filling your kid's head with a bunch of garbage and watching them repeat it back to you with no congitive thought.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Back to the dog thing for a moment, I would bet some dollars that Trump has never had a pet. If I lost that bet, it would be because he begrudgingly let one of his wives have a pet, but he never wanted to have anything to do with it.
