Should Police Be Preventing Religious Gatherings?

It may sound strange for many readers here, but I’m about to side with Christians. There’s been a case recently, where a mayor has prevented Christians from holding drive up services. These are services where the congregants remain in their cars while tuning into an FM station to hear the service, or maybe lower their windows a bit. In each case the attendees remain in their own vehicles, at least attempting to perform social distancing. My opinion is that although these gatherings, these drive-in services may still prevent a threat to not only those in attendance but ultimately to the community, I can’t see that a mayor, any mayor, has the authority to prohibit these gatherings. It must come from the Governor of the state.

Is it Time to Start Pointing Fingers?

Everyone wants to point fingers of blame when things go awry. It doesn’t matter what it is that went wrong, people seem to want to use hindsight to  say woulda, shoulda, coulda as they are pointing their fingers at the person(s) most responsible for whatever the occurrence was. A major hurricane? It’s got yo be due to climate change and the reason the climate is changing and spawning these horrific storms is a failure in the leadership of our country to do anything to reduce carbon emission that are causing the heat that results in these storms.

The Atheist Vote

0954CF4B-6188-4A43-8F8B-299361D52C86

do we need to encourage atheists and secular people to get out and vote? I see some people on Twitter, atheists, encouraging their fellows to make sure they vote because, if nothing else,  atheists need to somehow demonstrate first, that We Are Here. Then, possibly, there might be a bit of recognition of what is importnt for those of us that are atheist voters.  But how would anyone know who’s an atheist and who’s not? How about polling before the primary season? What we do know, or think we know is that most atheists vote or lean democratic  in the US. But do all atheists have the same agenda and would a poll of voting age atheists influence candidates at any level in future elections?

The Democratic Conundrum: Biden or Sanders?

If you’re in one of the states voting today, which has been called by the media “mini-Super Tuesday” who will you end up voting to be the Democratic nominee  in the residential election this year? It seems clear that Joew Biden has a clear advantage. Why? He’s the safe bet. Why do I say that? He has no new ideas, and his campaign, the little I’ve seen of it, looks backwards to the Obama/Biden days, and doesn’t really have any substantial proposals for anything. People like that. They dislike radical change, which is what Bernie Sanders is proposing. Sanders wants to eliminate college debt, make public universities and colleges tuition free, provide healthcare for all, and is not afraid to talk about it and how he’s going to pay for his %55 trillion in expenditures over the next decade.

Is Joe Biden Fit to be President?

Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden Addresses The DNI Whistleblower Report

It’s been a whisper among many in the media for a while now, but that whisper is becoming louder and more prevalent in recent weeks. It’s not as if hasn’t been known by all involved, it’s that it seems none want to come to a conclusion that is not based on anything but observation at a distance. The question has been, is Joe Biden fit to be president? Not physically, but mentally. His gaffes proceed apace where it appears, from this distant observer, that if not daily, almost every day. Some people like Joe Rogan and Trevor Noah (of The Daily Show) are openly commenting on their respective shows. Others in the media have suddenly become quiet, or are skirting the issue entirely.
