Catholic Church doesn’t pay taxes, duh. Their only major expenses are related to their multigenerational kiddie rape sex cult.

I see where you’re coming from but I don’t think so.

Lent, to me and I think a lot of other semi-secular (barely practicing) Catholics (this describes a lot of Catholics in NY and Europe) is just a time of reflection. I even know guys that timed their cut cycles to coincide with lent then give up something like peanut butter.

Yeah, the people are generally less and less interested in religion (with small exceptions, like Catholicism getting a small revival due to an influx of workers from eastern europe). The latter has, as you know, been tried and obviously failed spectacularly.

People sure do love trying to exploit loopholes in the system, seems kinda risky to do it with God though.

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

Gotta love the double standards being employed here. Republicans endlessly challenge the veracity and thoroughness of their own investigations of HRC, which are fully released and scrutinized.

Yet they also go through mental gymnastics to argue that the mere fact that Republicans have said they will release a redacted version of an independent investigation means that Trump must be 100% innocent, and that Dems are off base even questioning that this is true. Destroying the norms of political process in the US, unreasonable to the point they cannot be worked with, etc.

If the press had a shred of dignity not a single reporter would show up for this “press conference” with Barr.

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

North Korea Tests New Weapon, State News Agency Says
President Trump has considered the North’s self-imposed moratorium his administration’s biggest achievement in its dealings with North Korea.

The United States has been attempting to negotiate with the North for months to end its increasingly sophisticated nuclear weapons and missile programs. But the last summit meeting in February between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim abruptly ended without a deal.

Equally serious question: Why might one think it is offensive?

This went way over my head. I know next to nothing about Catholicism.

Can the 25th be invoked if there's only a total of 3 cabinet members?

Yeah

As he runs low on them, it takes less people to do it

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

The initial Barr summary has the Administration in a bad spot now. He was getting the benefit of the doubt and now no one believes a word he says. It sounds like Mueller and his team are pissed off and may be willing to talk/testify.

Federal District Judge Reggie Walton is saying he wants to review Mueller report and could potentially release it if it's overly redacted.

So now Barr has to worry about the report details coming out right after he tries to cover it up. This is likely why it's been reported it's going to be lightly redacted and instead they are going to go the "Witch Hunt!" route.

There must be some very damning stuff in the report. The stuff that made Rudy say it would be "horrific".
