Shalom Aleikhem (Peace upon you)! Yes I am Jewish and you are absolutely correct in your observations! Indeed, you are a blessing, most people do not understand this simple truth. Even in the Christian (new Testament) much has been "arranged" to equal or exceed expectations. In defense, all most have or read is what the budding Catholic Church determined was acceptable. Not many folks today can read the dead languages... Latin is only required for doctors (some Universities no longer require Latin), Aramaic and Hebrew are only required by Orthodox Jews.... and modern Greek is very different than what was spoken in the time of Jesus.

And NO you are not rambling, your observations are spot on!

I'm not Jewish, although someday I would like to be. But at my age, 72, that doesn't seem very likely. The closest synagogue or temple is about 45 miles one way and there are no other Jews where I live, so I have to rely on what I can learn on my own. My wife is Baptist which doesn't help things either. I do attend church with her occasionally and wear my kippa and Star of David and no o need in the church seems to mind. Well, it's past my bedtime (1:10 am) so enough for tonight.

Shalom Pennylynn, are you Jewish? Sorry, rhetorical question. It seems to me the problem with this question and other bible questions that arise, meanings are due to what the translators want the words to mean. For instance, the word moshiach appears 39 times in the Jewish scriptures, and it is translated correctly as anointed one in 37 of those places in the KJV. But in only one place is it translated twice as messiah, and that is in Daniel 9. That's because in, Daniel 9, the translator needed it to mean messiah rather than anointed one. And in one of those places it is even preceded by the definite article to make it 'the messiah'. I hope that all makes sense. I tend to ramble sometimes.

I heard this evening that Trump has already gone through his Secret Service budget for this fiscal year. Does that mean the Secret Service may have to work without pay?

Oh yeah, put Obammy, all three Clintons, and Soros behind bars in a Supermax somewhere and throw the keys away. 😀😈😠😬😆😡

Why hasn't Trump drained the IRS/DOJ swamp?
Posted by Mark Meckler on August 18, 2017

Many promises were made during the 2016 Presidential campaign.

One of Donald Trump’s main promises was to — say it with me — drain the swamp.

I love swamp-draining, because most Americans are sick and tired of the politics-as-usual in Washington, DC.

At the Wall Street Journal, Kimberly Strassel writes about the very swampy IRS… and how nothing has been done to hold that agency accountable since Trump took office:

Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp, and here’s a seven-month progress report: The Washington bog is still as wide and fetid as ever. Consider that Mr. Trump’s Justice Department has inexplicably continued to defend the IRS’s misdeeds under President Obama.

Voters put a Republican in the White House in part to impose some belated accountability on the scandal-laden Obama administration.

And the supreme scandal was the IRS’s assault on tea-party groups—a campaign inspired by congressional Democrats, perpetrated by partisan bureaucrats like Lois Lerner, and covered up by Mr. Obama’s political appointees.

This abuse stripped the right to political speech from thousands of Americans over two election cycles. To this day, no one has answered for it.

I talked to Strassel while she was writing her piece and had to admit — regrettably — that “the posture of the DOJ and the IRS under the Trump administration is identical to the posture under the Obama administration.

Nothing has changed.” That’s because the same corrupt, partisan Obama-era lawyers are still there. They’re still doing the same things. If ever a place has deserved to be drained, it’s the IRS.

Strassel echoes the sentiment of most Americans when she states that this is not acceptable:

There is no question the IRS did wrong. It has been documented by the Treasury Department’s inspector general and admitted by the IRS itself. It’d be one thing if the plaintiffs were demanding a billion-dollar payout, but they aren’t.

Their main request is that the IRS come clean on what happened, and the government is resisting with all its power. The real question is why the Justice Department is even fighting this suit, when it ought to be leading a renewed investigation into what happened and how it got covered up.

I agree. It’s a shame that this ever happened in our nation’s history. We have a unique opportunity to let the guilty pay for what they did to patriotic Americans. I admire Donald Trump’s proclamations about “draining the swamp,” and the IRS is in bad need of draining.

This is clear-cut abuse. There’s no reason to waste another day before justice is done.

I think Trump should start with McMaster. He's the one causing all the problems for Trump.

Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My 8-year-old grandson asked
if he could say grace.

As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food
and I would thank you even more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert.
And liberty, peace & justice for all. Amen!

Along with the laughter and nodding of heads from the other customers
nearby, I heard a woman at the next table remark, "That's what's wrong with this
country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why -- I

Hearing this, my grandson burst into tears & asked me, "Did I do it wrong
Grandpa? Is God mad at me?

After I assured him that he had done a terrific job & that God was certainly
not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.

He winked at my grandson & said, "I happen to know that God thought that was
a great prayer.

"Really?" my grandson asked.

"Cross my heart," the man replied. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added
(indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad
she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is sometimes good for
the soul.

Naturally, I bought my grandchildren ice cream at the end of the meal. My
grandson stared at his ice cream for a moment, & then he did something I
will remember the rest of my life. He picked up his sundae and, without a word,
walked over & placed it in front of the woman.

With a big smile he looked her in the eye and told her, "Here ma'am, this is for you,
you grouchy old bitch. Shove it up your ass and cool off!"

Kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it!

Sounds like something my grandson would have pulled when he was eight. How funny!

I know a bunch of you Okies, and love em to death!
Just keep in mind that as a Texan, I'm bound by our state Constitution to give you hell!😆
Now go out there and promote GREY POWER!!

That's OK, I'm used to getting hell from the Mrs. 😁😉
I guess I can be considered an Okie since I've been here almost 35 years with a 4 year break in Wyoming (long story). Born in Indiana, moved to California at 10 months old(before the fruits and nuts took over), went back to Indiana at 15. Then at 18 the Navy.

I will definitely be promoting GREY POWER.

A father walks into a restaurant with his young son. He gives the young boy 3 nickels to play with to keep him occupied. Suddenly the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The father realizes the boy has swallowed the nickels and starts slapping him on the back. The boy coughs up 2 of the nickels, but keeps choking. Looking at his son, the father is panicking, shouting for help.

A well dressed, attractive, and serious looking woman, in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the restaurant. Reaching the boy, the woman

carefully drops his pants; takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the last nickel, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy's testicles, the woman hands the nickel to the father and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar without saying a word.

As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, "I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?"

"No," the woman replied….”A Divorce attorney."

We should demand recognition as loudly as the blacks, hispanics, homos, muslims, and every damn body else! We deserve to be heard just like every other fringe group!

Fantastic idea, count me and the Mrs. in. Been looking for something like this.

The handwriting was on the wall when Roe v. Wade was passed. First, the murder of unborn children.

Don't believe this could ever happen in America? You'll get used to it. You got used to the most horrible holocaust in the history of mankind. Oh yes, not only will many of you get used to it you'll call it "good, a benefit to the majority, saving valuable resources." And yet you piss and moan when a few kids occasionally get murdered in school. Hypocrites! You've created and gleefully encouraged a culture of death.

Abortion and the refugee problem, for instance. I consider myself to be a Constitutional conservative on most subjects. My mind is not made up on several issues even though I am 62 years old. I try to keep an open mind and listen to reason. Hopefully, being on this forum will be a good experience for you and me. I won't check it daily except when expecting an answer to a post.

Welcome aboard. I'm going to to go out on a limb and assume (I hate that word) that you are former Navy since you titled your post 'Hello Shipmates'. Really doesn't matter, but I'm former Navy myself, Communications Technician (morse intercept & cryptography), 9 years with the U.S. Naval Security Group. I too am a Constitutional conservative and also believe the oath oil took on entering the service is still in effect. I'm 72 and currently live in Oklahoma. Hope you enjoy your experiences here and don't let the liberals get to you.
