Why is the military of any kind associated with sports?

Sports is supposed to be a neutral place where people enjoy a game, not laud war or the war machine. The problem comes because we have gotten used to mixing so-called patriotism with sports. In fascist countries and dictatorships the military is present everywhere. The military does not run our country. It is a tool our nation uses to protect itself.

Having the military at these events is nothing more than a recruiting tool. That is how it started. Military recruiters also show up at high schools to sign up young men to go into the military. It is too pervasive in our society. That is the problem.

I think Society has created this monster by mixing things like this. There's a reason the military and politics should stay out of religion. There is also a good reason for the military to stay out of things that has a captive audience. All kinds of people attend sporting events. Different beliefs that people have should be taken into account as much as honoring a war machine.

OK now. God is punishing Texas and Florida because they voted for Trump in the election?

We hear evangelists opining about how hurricanes are just punishment from God because "That is a liberal progressive state". Or, "That homosexual lifestyle caused it".
Thought I'd throw the opposite at them. I'm not gonna ask them why God is punishing them. I'm going to tell them that God is punishing Texas and Florida because they voted for Trump in the election. Not because it's true. It's just that I like to fuck with right wing self absorbed religious fascists.

Right wing religious fanatics constantly talk about Prophets and their predictions.

But they ignore the predictions of science which constantly come true. I call it prediction hypocrisy.

Science and scientists have proven to be Prophets. The Bible talks about earthquakes and upheavals in the Earth which have been common around the world since the Earth existed. So it's not a stretch to predict an earthquake in some general sense. Science is specific about massive storms, flooding and destruction. Science talks about specific places where destruction can happen.

We live in a world of crazy ideas. That homosexuality can bring on a storm. A tornado. An earthquake. Apparently God's will ignores human beings killed by the storm. But God's will saved a family bible. Apparently paper is more important than a human being.

Science ignores nothing and accepts theories and theorems that are tested to prove a fact.

We are fighting conjecture when we argue with people who believe adamantly in a spirit that causes destruction. These people are still living, in their minds, during the time of multi gods. The sun god. The god of war. The god of the ocean. They are mixing the multi god concept with a single deity.

I see billboards that say, "Jesus Saves". We need billboards that says, "Humans Save Humans".

True empathy does not seem to exist in people who do not believe in science when we have conjecture electing a bigoted racist liar who loves the leader of a country who is a murderer. That's a fact.

Really. Most calls like that are recorded for prosperity . But prosperity

to Trump would be him living forever. Admiring himself in a cosmic mirror and eating the infinitely hot buffet while everyone else on the earth is dead but him. God to him is being one with himself. Only angelic navel gazers would be able to read his secret coded tongue.

We are in an emergency. We're dealing with someone who does not give

two shits about this country. I realize Mueller has more investigating to do but the investigation needs to be done while these criminals have been stopped in their tracks. We had one revolution that established this country. Do we need another one to save it? Donald Trump is pissing all over the revolutionists who came here to get away from tyranny. Now tyranny is on our shores and it is allowed to fester. We are living in an insane asylum. Actually it's a House of Horrors. One horror after another. And it goes on and on and on.
I hear jawboning of "Oh my! Oh my!"
We are witnessing the very collapse of democracy and any vestige of why the USA exist
It makes me wonder who the people are who "really" give two shits.

Russia is destroying our democracy as we speak. Saudi Arabia

cut ties to Qatar and now the Turks are sending troops there. This is exactly what the Russians want. There is a reason the Russians never really bombed Isis but bombed the Syrian resistance and innocent civilians. They do not want to destroy Isis. They have the same intentions as Isis period to destroy the United States. I have a better question.

Why did ISIS attack Tehran?

Another question that was not asked at the hearings today that should have been asked. "Did Trump ask you for your loyalty?"

A lying sack if shit is just that and bags of it were on display for all to see during today's hearing.

How much damage to the country are the SUITS going to allow

before it gets to the point it's irreparable? If this goes on too long it will involve more than just a cover up and collusion by the Trump criminals. Soon that old smelly idea that it would be too damaging to the country to prosecute the President will be rolled out. Hence a cover up by the very people who are supposed to prosecute crimes and have a duty to do so. The same thing happened with Richard Nixon. Gerald Ford said the long national nightmare has come to an end when he "pardoned" Nixon for his crimes. They did not want to put the nation through a prosecution of a President. President Obama did not pursue Bush and Cheney for war crimes and lying to the American people for then same reason. This bullshit has to end. Let the Constitution work for a criminal President just like it works for you and me and every other American. The lethargic laziness of entrenched law enforcement bureaucrats is more of a problem than most people realize. They just want to retire with a pension and not make any more waves than necessary.

Trump is doing everything he can to stop and bog down the investigation. And Comey has also said said Russia is still involved in American politics. Russia wants the investigation to end just as much as Trump does.

We are yap yap yapping our why to the destruction of a democratic republic while a budding fascist dictator negatively changes and controls every aspect of our lives. If we are waiting to vote we are waiting too long and soon it will be too late.

The Russian people across their nation are protesting corruption

Would it not be fantastic if the opposition in Russia and the common person here in the USA join together as protesters with a common goal. Bringing down Putin and his corruption along with Trump and his corruption at the same time.
We have proven, with our protests, that the ACA is safe for a while. Communication is much easier today. I know the Russian people are aware of our protests against Trump. The Russian Murderer and his Puppet need to go the hell away.
Maybe 2017 will be the year of the PEOPLE.

Corruption protests held across Russia

Paid protesters? Your Average standard news outlet, CNN,

MSNBC, Fox News, The Washington Post, the New York Times and many more news outlets are reporting FAKE NEWS given to them by elected representatives of the people. Republican Senators and Congressmen say things like, the protesters are being paid to attend Our Town Halls and causing disruption. That is a lie. It is fake news. Fake news created by someone who is not anonymous so it seems more reputable.

A representative of the government who speaks in front of the camera and says things like protesters are being paid or any other lie that you hear such as voter fraud is rampant and perpetrated by millions of people. That is fake news that is picked up by the mainstream media and speculated as possibly being the truth. This s*** has to stop. I think from now on every time a senator or congressman lies like that we should call it FAKE NEWS as opposed to a lie.

FAKE NEWS is the new buzzword, the new meme. The news media always considers a non anonymous political representative or surrogate standing in front of a mic blabbing anything as news. We need to start blaming elected officials as being the ultimate creator of FAKE NEWS. Simply because they know the media will pick up their words and report it as the truth.
It's not always some teenager in a secluded part of the world creating fake news. Sometimes it's the very face you see on television paraded out as the Arbiter of Truth.
