Listen to the wording. He didn't say Russia killed them.

"Allowing Russia to devastate Ukrane, killing hundreds of thousands..."

I heard a slight pause in his speech, it could easily be a comma, implying they didn't do it, but the act triggered the deaths, which were caused by the invasion, by both sides.

Russians killing DS, Ukrainians killing their own, Russians, and EVERYONE killing the Mercenaries..

When someone starts looking at the world through rose tinted glasses, yeah you can pretty much ignore that person.

In-laws got the shot. They both know now what a bad decision it was. They listen to bongeno, read GAW posts occasionally, and sometimes even find news I missed, or didn't send them.

They are pretty based, especially considering when I first married in Tthey were registered Democrat.

Now she fights with her family and challenges them on posts and shared stuff on FB. We can have great discussions on most topics.

FYI, yes seems impossible, but it is possible!!!! Be careful of your approach. Present little facts to let them think for themselves, evoke them to ask the questions. Tiny bit at a time. Much easier with biden in wh. It can take time.

Threaten to put in new leadership. Take a shift on the library board. Make friends with the board. Library directors will fall in line or be replaced. Be prepared for them to fall on their swords defending "freedom of speech", they dig that crap.

Bad idea. This gives bad books good reader and checkout demographics. These are factored into what the community is interested in, and the library should therefore divert funds to for future purchases.

Better to not only lodge a formal complaint, but get community involvement into picketing, and getting community action, like the OP mentioned.

Libraries are very much image and relevance oriented right now. Threaten either and you should get traction. Get people to seriously talk if libraries are needed anymore, and many will at least consider capitulation.

Get them in the sights of a community values issue, you've got real traction.

Not all grants are federal, but yes, the federal and state specific ones need to stop.

There are lots of grants that are fantastic and legit, like scollorships for private schools, and colleges. Those are frequently funded almost entirely through alumni donations. Others are business grants setup to help the community or needy, but even some of those are forced by the city/county/state, so is false charity.

This is what people need to do!

Libraries see themselves as the bastion of knowledge against humanities recession into ignorance and strife. No joke, they really do view themselves like this.

Give that sacred cow a kick in the pants, talk about defunding woke libraries today.

So I don't believe people do wrong by punishing crime.

Christ didn't say let them walk all over you.

It is proper to tell a convicted criminal, "We forgive you for your crimes against me, now die in peace." <shove>

On top of that, it was great road conditions when it happened. Both drivers are being reported to be good drivers.

Sure, accidents happen, a moment of distraction and all that.

However, like you say, super suspicious fiven the political climate.

One of my friends in county said they read an article that the sheriff had stated they were going over her vehicle with a fine-tooth-comb.

The way it was stated made everybody very suspicious. I still haven't found the make/model of the SUV but I understand that it was a late model. IF it was, it may have had remote access and self driving, which means it was susceptible to remote take over, which could throw this into a whole new direction.

IM NOT SAYING THIS WAS THE CASE....YET. I know the sheriff personally, good man. Let him do his job.

If this turns out to have been malicious, he will be filled with righious fury, and bring the whole district with him.

This seems to be spreading. It is in other parts of the state too.

Sure, anything is possible.

However, info I'm getting says the other car was older, which is common in this area. I believe they were on 19, which is a narrow road through there. I travel it a lot. It has also been under construction this spring/summer. Even had it closed off for a while, pain in the drain going around.

There are also lots of farm, heavy machinery, and big rigs in that area. One of four big rig repair shops not far from there, so it's always heavy traffic for such a small road.

In all honesty, it is very likely the lady fell asleep at the wheel, or drifted by accident. You get tunnel vision on that road a lot.

Team Evil influence? Sure, possible.

IMO? Unlikely.

The older car drifted into oncoming lane. Walorsky was in the newer vehicle.

The bigger issue imo was the misreporting of directions.

She left Claypool at 12, and was hit 4 miles south of nappanee at 12:30. It takes 38 min to get there in good conditions. Warsaw has grown a lot, so if they went through town, it would have added 5-10 minutes, so there's that.

In addition, they said she was south bound, but nappanee is north of both Claypool and warsaw.

No way she was going south.

Source: I live in the area.

This is true, and another reason to believe it really was an accident, considering the lady's car was older.

Source: I'm not far from where it happened. Local sources of info are confirming eachother, except for the erroneously mentioned direction conflict.

She was just in Claypool 30 min. prior to the accident. they said she was going South from Nappanee when hit.

It takes a good 30-40 min. at speed just to get to Nappanee from Claypool in the area (Warsaw is a pain to get around at lunch time). So how was she going SOUTH from Nappanee when she was traveling NORTH from Claypool?!?!? Its barely enough time to get there unless she was doing 20 over the entire time...AND avoided the lunch traffic???

Did the old covenant dissapear entirely? Or did it stay in place for Jews who wish to follow the old covenant yet still follow Christ?

Never once have I believe, regardless of other status, that the favord status of the Jews was ever passed on to another people's. That doesn't even make sense.

That Gentiles (basically everyone but Jews) can now enjoy salvation through Christ, that only brings salvation onto equal footing with Isreal, salvation-wise.

If you want the favored children status, that is another thing entirely.

Not true.

Many, Many protestant churches adhere to what I guess you'd call a slightly modified covenant teaching.

Dispensationalism is not nearly as prevalent as you are making out. Maybe your area has a dispriportianatly large following, but not anywhere I've lived has that been the case. Our family has I guess you'd say a multi-denominational background, been in 6 different states (north, midwest, south, far NW). I've not seen the propensity of which you speak.

It didn't, and it doesn't and they don't.

If there is one thing the military takes seriously it is pomp and ceremonies. Sure there can be deviation, but not mistakes.

Example, look at the tomb of the unknown soldier. Do you know how much they train for that post? It is crazy. A presidential posting is only just under that. It is a serious matter and everything is done for a reason.

Thank you for the article. Now want confirmation from an alternate source, something NOT a cookie cutter of this one.

That isn't true. Even the internet can track deaths, even if they do obfuscate drug overdoses. A couple/few years back checked from 1996 to 2016, granted it was all hollywood types, not just comedians. An average of 1-2 a month is not uncommon. Of course a-listers aren't as common, because there aren't that many.

Also matters what you consider famous. Phil Hartman was a comedian, but also a TV and movie star.

Came in to say this. Seems a lot of Q posts have already triggered, some obsolete. Not sure it's safe to say everything they know is out yet, pretty sure there are several gems left.

Can't wait for Stargate to be true.
