    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from James Thomas Rook Jr. in The DOs and DON'Ts of PRAYER   
    I should view it. I know I should, since it is sent specifically my way. But it is that same smug and self-pleased woman that I already told you I choked on. 
    Maybe I can work up the gumption later. Not now.
    The trouble is, you ought to show a modicum of decorum in whatever you do. That way, in the event that you do succeed in making a valid point or two, you find it is not summarily rejected by people who simply resent how obnoxious you are.
    It is the very first law of human nature. It is amazing how many are oblivious to it.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from JayDubya in Jim Bakker reports that because credit card processing companies have cut off his ministry, his network will be "totally financially broke" within two weeks if they don't get a bunch of donations by check soon.   
    I can’t stand this guy. His manner is simply nauseating. Pour on the syrup or what? He turned my stomach then, he turns it now.
    But I also suspect the stuff he is selling probably works—to call it a ‘cure’ is too much, but to say it helps—i would go along with that. If I recall it is silver colloidal something or other and that is a mixture that many swear by.
    It is not that he hawks something that gets me. It is that he so throughly mixes it with his role as ‘evangelist.’ It is as though the Circuit Overseer had a line of goods that he sold at the Assembly Hall—and you couldn’t get into the place without passing his booth by.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from Arauna in A web page where almost every historical movie is listed by their chronological order and events they based on.   
    Still, that list is impressive. When I get a spare decade I’m going to watch all those movies.

    This is what ought be done unless you want to watch the ‘history’ in which Moses pops Pharaoh in the nose and gets the girl.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from James Thomas Rook Jr. in All U.S. banks will now never go bankrupt no matter what!   
    The reason they want to keep banks afloat, rife with ‘moral hazard’ though that course is, is that all employment depends on them, and no one wants to throw most people in the world out of work. 
    It is sort of like how Abraham Lincoln said that he is not smart enough to lie. Once you tell one, you will be telling them till the end of your days in an attempt to shore up that first one.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from James Thomas Rook Jr. in New Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Pandemic (aka WuFlu)   
    I took note of how quickly everyone at the Kingdom Hall Sunday embraced a new routine. There had been an announcement about a need to “keep your greetings simple” and handshaking has instantly been replaced by elbow bumps, etc. There is an advantage to being ready to comply. I worked up a post about it 4 days ago, starting with how if you wore a mask like they do trick-or-treating, or even a Guy Fawkes mask, that would be one effective way to avoid touching your face.

    What happens when you use it to divide by zero? Most would return an ERR message, but I had one that would simply start running through all the numbers, as though trying them all.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from César Chávez in Hey Robert ....   
    They have a weak field of candidates, imo. I can’t imagine how they would expect a Sanders or Warren to take the country, as hostile to business as they are, and given the fact that in a capitalist country outright hostility to business will only go so far. 
    Biden looks like he is not doing so hot, and is famous for shooting himself in the foot, anyway. A favorite cartoon of mine—published just after he made some gaffe at the very onset of another Presidential campaign, pictured all the contestants revving their engines at the starting gate, and his car alone was already flaming out. After a brief and maybe longer than usual honeymoon, the press would soon start ridiculing his faux paus almost as much as they do with Trump.
    Pete—I just don’t think a man with a husband is going to win the approval of the majority—I could be wrong on that, but it seems too much baggage to carry. Plus, can a guy who has only served as a small-city mayor really have the experience to run the country?
    Bloomberg may charge and win acceptance, but then there is the very opposite of what the Democrats try to portray as their capital strength—diversity. The guy is richer than Trump and every bit as white.
    My guess, based on early results and admittedly too little background into, is that it will be Klobuchar. 
    And I must admit, I find it almost impossible to picture you with a brother who hates Trump. If I had to recalculate when @JW Insider described himself as a nerd, I think I may have to purchase a brand new calculator in your case.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from admin in Powerful speech in European Parliament about Fractional Reserve Banking and how the Central Banks are a Scam.   
    I remember a James Michener book stating that the Spanish, although they had a head start, never made much success with their colonizing and the reason was their banking system (or lack of). A thoroughly Catholic nation, they held that usury (the illegal act or practice of lending money at unusually high rates of interest) was wrong, which all but made serious investment impossible—the rich king or queen had to sponsor everything and she did so only to plunder lands and add to his or her wealth)
    Protestantism changed everything. Lending on interest, even high interest, became a virtue and the underpinning for colonization from England, France, Netherlands, others.
    This is not the same as your topic, of course, but it’s the best I can come up with at the moment, and in a vague sense of how banking systems work, it fits. Your clip is more on the lines of the book, ‘The Creature From Jekyll Island.’ Have you read it?
    A good topic of discussion. The imposing Greek & Roman architecture of the large banks, meant to convey stability and strength, is illusory. It can all come crashing down, and used to routinely when there would be a ‘run on the bank’—people all wanted their money for some reason of crisis, only to find that the bank did not have it because they had leant it out.
    Central banks were devised to supervise and prevent such disasters, but it comes at the societal cost of inflation for all. That’s why a cartoon I love has some old-timer grumbling how “for the price of a postage stamp today, I used to be able to buy a whole damn Cadillac!”

    TrueTomHarley reacted to admin in Red Robin's Mad Love Burger is the Best Burger in America!   
    I personally love Red Robin's "Mad Love" gourmet burger.  It must be on my top 3 list of cheeseburgers.

    Ask for the "Campfire" sauce for your steak fries. Yummy. It is basically a mix of BBQ and Ranch I'm told.

    TrueTomHarley got a reaction from James Thomas Rook Jr. in How to see fewer posts on a page?   
    It reminds me of Anthony Morris telling how he was starting to sweat it because he urgently needed the sale of his house to go through and it wasn’t—it came right down to the wire. As he recalled at the 2016 Regional Convention (with a glance upward): “Of course, he’s God—he can do what he wants.)

    TrueTomHarley reacted to JW Insider in Cruise operator bans Chinese nationals from its ships   
    @Health and Medicine, Clever Eagles remake. But yes, "too soon."
    By a strange coincidence, we traveled on the "Anthem of the Seas" mentioned in the above post, about 10 years ago.  https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruise-ships/anthem-of-the-seas
    I already called it "Anthem of Di Seas." [pronounced: disease] because a "norovirus" breakout was affecting dozens, and even my own mother and father had to be quarantined in his room instead of being allowed out to the daily activities or meals. All the cruise personnel worked overtime standing around offering squirts from bottles of Purell saying: "Washy-washy? Washy-washy? Washy-washy?" Hard not to make fun of the experience.

    Welcome to the Royal Caribbean,
    Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
    Such a lovely face.
    Plenty of room at the Royal Caribbean,
    Quarantines are here (this time of year) you can find it here
    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
