if coke disturbed you because of a certain stance would you stop buying coke?
would you stop watching a sport if a certain view was politicized?.
would you boycott a certain product because you did not agree with the corporation’s opinions?

we live in strange times, in the middle of a culture war where saying certain opinions have consequences.

i saw a statistic the other day that something like 25% of all the debt that the us has incurred since 1776 was created in the last 12 months.
that's because they have printed so much currency and instead of letting that stop them, they are going to continue printing more to go on a spending spree on crazy green-new-deal schemes and union handouts.. does anyone think that this can be anything other than inflationary?
they are effectively stealing the wealth of everyone to then hand money out to people.

does a child have the right to decide that he or she is not comfortable with their gender and so would want to change from being a boy to a girl and vice versa?

my question to sam rolex is why not sell your rolex and give it to the cult?
how about muppet lett, why not sell your rental property in ga and give it to the cult?

interesting little video from a youtuber called david stewart.. he puts forward an interesting idea that fan following around films and music is comparable to people being in a cult.. stewart is a film reviewer among other things, putting out several videos critiquing the force awakens (2015) and receiving lots of abuse and even death threats.. enjoy ….
Do you sometimes bemoan the LOST idea, or Belief, that Someone Powerful was going to set all things right?by pistolpete in
so it looks like about half of my jw relatives are not going back to the meetings once they open up the kingdom halls.
the main reason all of them give is that if we were truly living in the last days, jehovah would not have allowed the door to door preaching work, and kingdom hall meetings to stop for over a year.. the elders have talked to some of them and tried to convince them that letter writing is accomplishing the same thing as door to door, and zoom is the same as meetings-----------but my relatives just won’t buy it anymore.
just a note here, at first, the kingdom hall lock-downs, and the no preaching door to door was not that bad,the relatives still held on to their faith strongly because they believed it was temporary.

so a few months ago i saw avatar (2009) from beginning to end for the first time.. if i'd seen this when i was ten, i'd probably have loved it.
i find the film entertaining but i do have issues with it.. the movie is beautiful to look at, and there's definitely some interesting concepts.. but star wars it ain't.. first issue, the na'vi: these are blue-skinned humanoids with tails.. my first question is: why do blue monkeys who live 5 light years away on an extrasolar moon have african accents?!.
i know what writer/director james cameron is doing in this film.
