TimTuolomne comments on Jul 12, 2020:
That explanation will be lost on most who resent the possibility of what they view as a "Get out of jail free" card. But such a point of view is a willful selection of a perspective that deletes most possibilities of what true gratitude for Salvation might be. We faithful know that there is no such grace to willingly and repeatedly do evil unrepentantly. No one will be granted the presence of God by Jesus Christ who has that in their heart and mind. Earthly laws of physics and reality can not be assumed to apply to a different dimension, and physicists say is seems likely that the larger reality in which we are embedded, and do not have access normally, may mean Christ's awareness of our slightest impulse is not even as wild as His proven Resurrection. As said physicist Werner Heisenberg: "The Universe is not only stranger than we think. It is stranger than we CAN think."
Maybe someone can point me in the right direction here in regards to the whole mask debate.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 12, 2020:
Masks are practically irrelevant for many reasons. COVID-19 is the latest version of the common cold. It is less dangerous than the flu. This version of the common cold is more contagious than most, and it places anyone with serious pre-existing conditions in mortal danger, but no worse than the flu, and "flattening the curve" may be responsible for extended exposure of those at risk. Dr Richard Bartlett of Texas has also found that Budecinide is an almost completely effective treatment. Media coverage? None. Political acceptance? None or negative without cause. Most of us who don't smoke are in less danger of dying of COVID-19, than we are driving to the grocery. In the US, there is lots of evidence of tampering with diagnoses in hospitals. The standard protocol demands listing death by pre-existing conditions, not listing the cause of death from complications, like COVID-19. I have seen an half dozen posts by medical professionals from across the country (Board of Medical Practice threatens to shut down a doctor. He said he is being "targeted" for comparing COVID-19 to the flu. Dr Jensen cited ICD 10 coding: "If the provider documents suspects ...a cause other than COVID-19, provider is obligated to not record it as COVID-19." Notes that massive overreporting is occurring in spite of that directive.[facebook.com]) that consistently say that now, doctors are ordered to report any person that is suspected of having COVID-19, which are determined, not by testing, but by a person exhibiting two of the following: sore muscles, fever, chills, headache, sore throat, weird tastes or smells. Or one of these: cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. They also include anyone who tests positive for antibodies (meaning anyone with the common cold, H1N1, or type 2 influenza), AND contact with anyone who "may have had" COVID-19. [cdn.ymaws.com] Look at the data, and you will see all pre-existing conditions, and flu deaths far lower than average this year. Also, more testing is not distinguishing between asymptomatic, or even contagious-asymptomatic positives. So cases appear to be increasing only because testing is increasing. This serves the purposes of the politicians demanding more shutdown, more harsh controls, ie Democrats, who want you to believe this is the "new normal." And YOU are putting up with this. If you want things to return to normal, vote out every single Democrat.

Yep. Most of the people I know don't want to hear about what is going on. They tell me they are happy living their lives and wonder why they should upset themselves over politics. I say to most, "Sure, that's up to you. If you ever change your mind and want to know what is going on, let me know." I have yet to hear from any of them. That is how it has been in every revolution in history, and typically those with formerly wonderful lives ask: "How did this happen???" as if their disinvolvement had nothing to do with revolutionaries sensing no resistance to moving forward.

The Democrats found another way to extort money out of the citizens.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 12, 2020:
The Democrats have been extorting money from taxpayers since the party was founded a hundred years ago, and they have raised the process to a high art form. Every Federal government contract run by a Democrat, every Federal road project, every Federally funded State project, every military contract, every foreign aid project, every "education" bill, every healthcare bill....all have a skim that goes into slush funds to pay for protestors, vote harvestors, gerrymandering legal fees...Michigan may be a bit more visible than most, but you can be sure that almost every State has been funding Democrat dirty tricks. Democrats are the party of deception, from asserting that Republicans are behind the KKK, which Democrats founded in 1868 to keep blacks from voting for Lincoln - and which they still populate behind hoods, to claiming that all politicians are corrupt, because DEMOCRATS are and know it, and that they will never stay in office unless they create doubt about the honest party, Republicans.

TimTuolomne comments on Jul 12, 2020:
China has owned Hong Kong always, but allowed the capitalist empire to persist because it helped the economy of China. When the leases ran out in 1990, they didn't take over, because they needed the resources. They only did this year, because the protests in Hong Kong became to visible and an embarrassment. The Chinese are not so dumb as to handle the US any differently. They would rather have us as productive trade partners, than an unproductive part of their empire. They have plenty of control now, with progressives here giving them so much justification. The reason the US is in trouble if the President is not re-elected, is that the fre-falling Constitutional principles will completely evaporate, and this once great nation will become the latest version of socialist failures, like Venezuela.

Theoden: I will not risk open war.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 11, 2020:
Those with bumper stickers which self-righteously proclaim that "War is not the answer," ignore the fact that the Aragorn's of the World insist that it is, and someone must defend themselves or die. And the proud bumper sticker on display assumes that everyone wants war, which is completely ridiculous. The vast majority of us just want to live our lives unconcerned about power or politics. But those who judge others, often with condemning words, are the true root of war. When those of us defending what remains of our unique system of governance are perceived as preventing a better, unproven system, historically those desiring the change are willing to kill to achieve their idea of utopia..."for our own good." “If you are not prepared to use force to defend civilization, then be prepared to accept barbarism.” ― Thomas Sowell.
My anxiety has been particularly bad lately.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 11, 2020:
My prayer is for your recovery and good health. You can relax. Nothing is as bad as everyone wants you to feel. The political climate today is an attempt by anti-constitutionalists to destabilize society and replace it with their own utopia. The fact is, most of us will survive such an event just fine. And the story the anti-constitutionalists are creating is almost all completely fiction, so you don't really have to worry much about it. That means the virus, the climate, police brutality, racism...all of that is fiction that the media - which is owned by the anti-constitutionalists, wants you to believe. You don't have to. Relax. You are going to be fine. Some of us are bothered by the danger to our Constitution. That is real, but you don't need to worry about that. We will do our best to defend it. And if we fail, probably no big deal for many people who are not concerned about our political system.
Are you religious? There might have been a poll on this before. If so, I apologize but I'm curious.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 11, 2020:
Humans regard religion as the cause of their own murderousness, among many other reasons we deny that the evil we do isn't our fault. Marxism is responsible for the death of arguably 100 million souls, only second to Islam. In the name of Christianity, millions died in the Crusades as the fearful HUMAN response to murderous Muslims. Christ sacrificed himself for the sake of every human soul past, present and future, only for the price of acceptance of His gift. If I were a man who chose to die for every human, I would mourn each and every one who chose to decline my gift. His current call to every Christian is to love God and all humans as we love ourselves. Millions were free to decline and have throughout history. There has never been any other figure in history who died for us and resurrected. That is impossible on Earth, but not for a being from Heaven. There were over 500 witnesses, all who remained true to their testimony, most under pain of death. I did not have to die for my sins, because He did. And I am grateful for His Sacrifice. So in gratitude I will, with terrible fallibility, attempt to not dishonor His gift. My relationship is with Him, and I congregate with others of like mind. But that association is a human one. The relationship that matters is with Jesus Christ. Atheism claims there is no God. There is no evidence for such a claim, and theologists agree that all of the evidence exists that I have given, that there is. If one thinks about it even for a short bit, one has to admit that physicists beginning to understand that our Universe is a mere film within a larger reality, means that asserting there are no beings there would be like asserting that we don't exist. Belief is conviction without evidence. And knowledge is belief WITH evidence. I have evidence, so I KNOW that Jesus Christ lives. “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” - C.S. Lewis.

What makes you think humans aren't made with genes that express differently with different environmental stimuli? We do. Geneticists say so. Not sex of course, but many other things do change, much like the genes in a grizzly bear turn it into a polar bear in arctic conditions. Cancer is among the most significant expressions that is environment dependent. The other problem is that humans in aggregate have historically poor judgment. There is no way at all that genetic engineering of our own species will end well. “Evil is not to be traced back to the individual but to the collective behavior of humanity.” - Reinhold Niebuhr

“No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk. What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it.” ― Thomas Sowell.

The assumption that "blacks" are always the socially and economically disadvantaged is incorrect and racist, and the questions posed by leftists, require that you answer that way.

The Left criticizes everything to destabilize society, and promotes their criticisms as intelligence. it isn't. Most of them have never read the Constitution. Ask them. Even fewer have read the Federalist Papers, which basically explain how the Constitution and other important concepts came into existence. Some on the right are unwillingly enrolled in this "debate," because they believe it is a good faith discussion, and end up angry, because it isn't a good faith discussion. It is a deception, intended to place conservatives off balance, so we seem weak and confused. Best tactic with the "cancel culture" is to clearly communicate non-verbally that you believe they have lost their minds and shouldn't be allowed to be out in public.

Obama Says One World Government Needed Now More Than Ever - Politico Daily News
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 7, 2020:
Every study on group ethics shows that accountability utterly disappears in any group of human beings over a few thousand souls. What reasonable person believes it will improve in a global government??? Our own country is now far larger than envisioned by our founders, and accountability is nearly absent. In their incredibly insightful vision, our founders wrote into the Constitution that the States were supposed to be the center of power in the United States - hence the name. We are not named “ The Republic of America”. Democrats have ignored and in some cases changed the laws to subvert that concept. We must reverse that trend if we are to return to accountable government. Democrats' more visible effort to destabilize and thereby de-ligitimize our government, is evident in Obama's statement.

Consider how the people have gradually become accustomed to the leftist ideas that the government is the answer to everything. Any Constitutionalist must be pretty careful to tread a fine line if they are going to stay in office long enough to keep fighting for the Constitution. I agree with you about recognizing McConnell's risk, and that with the President's recent speech as cover, maybe he can risk speaking out a bit more. A lot like conservatives among the people. A lot of us can not have any kind of respectful conversation without someone being uncivil. That's the Left winning the agenda by brainwashing even some on the right to adopt their criticism of everything, to destabilize and de-ligitimize our system. Just like the President standing almost alone as the one-man frontline against the assault on our Constitution. Unless we vocally support him to every one of our Representatives, he may not succeed.

That is called a coup, and is exactly what the Left has in mind by destabilizing civil society to try to de-legitimize Constitutionalism, just like they tried to de-legitimized a duly elected president. Our system does not require a benign, uncorruptible leader. Look at those who have been president, and Congress. Dictators eventually prove to be corruptible, as are we all, and in that system, the system collapses when the leader does. Read the Federalist Papers. There are very good reasons the original Constitution was written. Leftists will try to assert that it is out of date, but only because that thin document is the only thing protecting you from them. And we have allowed the Left to compromise it so much already, that it barely exists now.

A few facts regarding wind powered systems.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 6, 2020:
1. Wind power can never be more than 56% efficient for a number of reasons related to the physics of air, airfoils and unshrouded turbines. True efficiencies are far less. 2. Almost all turbines require at least 11 mph to start turning, and must be shut down to prevent damage above 35mph. 3. If you look at a map of wind velocity averages over time across the US, only a few percent of the area has velocities consistently greater than 11mph. Most places do not. 4. Wind turbines are very complicated devices that must operate in a very harsh environment, so maintenance costs are high and their operational lives are very short - typically not more than 5 years. 5. The cost for wind power is about 40 cents per kWhr. The cost per kWHr is the only meaningful measure of comparison. 6. The cost of energy in Colorado is about 4 cents per kWHr. It may be up to ten times higher in non oil/gas states. (Still probably does not justify it.) I was a North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, certified Solar Thermal Installer 2010-2013. To be certified I had to pass a test more difficult than the EIT exam I passed when I received my mechanical engineering degree. The NABCEP test contained much of the information above. My disclaimer: I am no longer in the solar thermal installation business.

TimTuolomne comments on Jul 6, 2020:
Almost no proponent of renewables will be honest with you about the cost per kWHr, the only true "apples to apples" method of comparing them to each other and to local energy. In Colorado, energy costs about 4 cents per kWHr. The best renewable is solar thermal, which when you calculate the equipment cost after incentives over its lifetime, comes out to about 2 cents per kWHr. For most Coloradoans, that is not enough of a slam-dunk to justify it. Energy is usually more expensive in non-oil and gas states, and can be up to 20 cents per kWHr, making some renewables reasonably attractive. But many in Colorado WILL buy a photovoltaic system that runs about 11 cents per kWHr after incentives. Pretty much a bad deal, but most of them are environmentalists who will lie and tell you their meter runs backwards all the time, to justify the embarrassment of the true cost they eventually realize. Wind and geothermal both cost around 40 cents per kWHr after incentives over their short lifetimes - ergo their higher cost. Not smart economics nor ecovironomics. Best bang for your buck? Seal all the cracks in your window frames, wall plates, and attic penetrations, and add insulation. Here is a handy pictorial from the Minnesota Power: https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/53e4fdabe4b00bf4cf27d379/1427678514675-FNHZBG5715EPQZHQOM4F/Residential-Pyramid-of-Conservation-from-MN-Power.jpg?content-type=image%2Fjpeg FYI, industrial renewables are a whole different animal, because economies of scale become two or three times as significant in reducing the cost per kWHr of industrial applications. I was a North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners, certified Solar Thermal Installer 2010-2013. To be certified I had to pass a test more difficult than the EIT exam I passed when I received my mechanical engineering degree. The NABCEP test contained most of the information above.

This is the peek behind the curtain of the Great Oz. I will generally say that whenever conspiracy is suspected, it is almost certainly really the result of massive incompetence. Not today. There is a concentrated effort to keep the truth from the American people about how mild COVID really is, and I believe that is partly because the government attorneys are realizing that the government has exposed itself to massive liability for recommending draconian measures to respond to COVID without adequate due diligence to prove an actual threat that justifies it Constitutionally. That is the incompetence part. But that does not explain the extent of the denial of increasing evidence that most deaths reported as COVID have been something else.

TimTuolomne comments on Jul 6, 2020:
Their assertion, so their responsibility to prove. Typically the New York Times "proves" their assertions with labyrinthine innuendo, and not much more, leaving readers too exhausted to follow their convoluted "logic," then mount a cogent argument against their myriad "causes." Much as a competent attorney will cast doubt about the opposing case with an endless litany of mudslinging, any of which, or the aggregate, might be sufficient to persuade without actual proof. Proof by reasonable doubt of the opposite. Those who desperately look to the media to tell them what to think, eagerly lap it up, mistaking the Kafkaesque verbage for intelligent argument.

TimTuolomne comments on Jul 6, 2020:
I doubt that. The American Left has been far more effective at managing a collapse of our Constitutional Republic than the virus, which had to be among the most incompetently created and executed biological weapons ever, if intentional. Someday there will be a microbe far more dangerous to humans than even the Spanish Flu. No one will be debating about where it came from or if it is a real threat. People will be dying in the streets, and every other one of us will be among them. THAT would be more like an intentional biological weapon. But only if it had a reasonably effective antidote for the executors. Evidence lacking today, unless you think Sweden did it.

Anyone who is paying attention is not fooled by this obvious propaganda by World Health Organization Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesu. Those already terrified no longer have access to their pre-frontal cortex to tell them to there is something rotting somewhere, and that it is the truth. "The surest way to manipulate someone into condemnation of their friends and families, and into abandonment of good conduct, is to convince them without their realization that they have something to fear."
Big fan of atheism is unstoppable. But my deep dark secret is that I am not an atheist.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 5, 2020:
@Scjames8, My way to reply in a group in which I am not a member is to comment. (I am not a fan of the premise that "Atheism is unstoppable." Unfortunately for the immortal souls of many, it is possible that I am mistaken.) Without God's grace, we are all subject to the consequences of failing to be virtuous. Even those making the effort to be in reverent relationship with God will fail on Earth, including by using Scripture to manipulate others. Shakespeare was perceptive about that. Atheists often take this as invalidity of faith, and condemnation of human institutions like churches. And it is a contradiction that requires faith to endure. It is also a logical fallacy, as it is actually a condemnation of human nature, not proof against the existence of God. Courage to wade into faith, to discern the truth, is what many lack. It may also seem as another contradiction then, that devout faith favors the intellectually curious, and not the dogmatic. Many people like Einstein, were and are believers. Ask yourself. Now that physics tells us that we exist in a shallower dimension than the greater existence, in which the Universe we know is more like a smaller ant-farm within the larger one, by what hubris would we assert that we know what is outside of our own Universe, God or no God???
Lets talk about the REASON Covid cases are now higher.
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 5, 2020:
"Probable case definition" is now counted as a case, which could be only if you have been exposed to a person with "probable symptoms." Deaths are COVID even if no evidence of PCH. All of this drives up the case numbers without regard to actual COVID deaths, or asymptomatics. This has never been done before for any cold or flu, and there is still no proof that COVID-19 is more dangerous than any historical flu or cold. Time to wake up folks, and take back your country!

TimTuolomne comments on Jul 5, 2020:
The Left has grabbed the opportunity, handed to them by the sensationalist media, with both hands, and is taking full advantage of the fear it has produced. They tried to produce that kind of fear by whipping up anger against the police, re-kindling the fires of racism, and distrust of those defending the Constitution. But nothing worked as well as the virus. Practically the whole nation has become willing to sign away their Constitutional rights overnight, even many conservatives. “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety. Deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” - Benjamin Franklin.
Has any First Lady been more mistreated than Melania?

I don't feel badly for the First Lady. She has class that won't quit, and that means she can easily handle the petty maliciousness. And one can always sense when a marriage is solid, where partners understand and support each other when it gets tough. The insecure and envious who also sense that are the ones throwing rocks the hardest.

Reversed Black Lives Matters logic. What do you think?
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 5, 2020:
Freedom under our Constitution is freedom. It is a pinnacle, unique in human history from which going in any direction is down, including adding or subtracting anything from the Constitution. Adding the concept of Black Lives Matter, is at the cost of freedom for everyone else - a slip down one side of the pinnacle. As the Constitution is color blind, and clearly states that "...all men are created equal," using language like "white" or "black," is also adding something to the Constitution that is like slipping off the pinnacle as well.

Hadith 9-5, among many others, calls for the displacement or death of infidels. Sometimes it is equated to the Bible. But the "Old Testament," told us who WE are, violent, selfish, destructive, war-like and willful. Fundamentally not like the Koran. And no longer our current call to faith. The New Testament is the current call to Christians, that tells us who God is, and ONLY calls for us to love God and ALL humans. Hadith 9-5 is among Mohammed's last words, and is the CURRENT active call to Muslims. And Taqiyya is their call to lie to promote of Islam. Islam has killed more human beings in history than any other force, disease, philosophy, dictator or country. Sharia is totally inconsistent with our Constitution. ALL true believer Muslims must be deported. Not only “violent” Muslims are dangerous!

TimTuolomne comments on Jul 4, 2020:
Its the politics that is dangerous to everyone. Politics has re-written what many believe about science, including Global Warming, the common cold (Coronavirus) the nature of men and women, that government has the power to save everyone by changing human nature. Most of society believes this stuff, partly because the media has signed onto it. The media is owned and directed by the Left. And the dumber half of the country desperately needs someone to tell them what to think. The Left is only too happy to sell them their agenda for destruction of the Constitution. And the dumber half of the country doesn't see it coming. Our original Constitution made it impossible for the Left and Democrats to assimilate enough power to do this. When they damaged the Constitution with Wickard v Filburn in 1942, a vast unaccountable Federal bureaucracy was born, much like the Soviet apparatus, that began to control every aspect of their lives. Statues came down and history was rewritten. Those who tried to speak out were killed. After a while none of the Russian people remembered what had happened to them. We are not quite at that point. Damage to the Constitution was completed in Obamacare. Some of have seen this. Much of the country is still unaware, and won't get it until the death squads come.

Any place less socialist and less "politically correct" will not have people "walking on eggshells." Anyone who is here can't be blamed for what socialists here are trying to do to this country, and in many ways have already succeeded. But we can restore our original Constitution by demanding that of our representatives - especially those who know that it will curtail their power. They will protest and be seen as the power hungry people they have always been. I can count the number of people I know who have written to their representatives on one hand. No one should be surprised when the media and socialist representatives run wild when we say nothing. There is tremendous power in writing to them in a calm, rational way. I have met reps who have told me so. When we ask for our original Constitution to be restored, some of them especially will realize they are in trouble if they don't respond appropriately - probably a brand new feeling for most of them.
Happy Fourth Of July! YEEEHAAAAAA!🍫🥛🛹
TimTuolomne comments on Jul 4, 2020:
Time to celebrate our ORIGINAL Constitution, and build in our minds the strategy of its restoration. The Original Constitution was the greatest document in history, and the only assurance of the protection of our rights. Everyone's rights. Protection against the government itself, against those who would take advantage of others, and against those who would rewrite or change our Constitution. In 1942, our Constitution was turned into a socialist document that allowed the government to tell farmers what they could and could not grow without recourse. That was the beginning of a vast, unaccountable Soviet-style Federal Bureaucracy. Don't believe it? We are now just like the people in the Soviet Union who eventually became accustomed to their new socialist system, utterly forgot their own history because statues had been taken down, and history re-written, and became unaware that anything had happened to them, or that there might have been a time before that was better. Political correctness punished and killed anyone who dared remember their families, killed by their new socialist system. After a time, those memories became distant and surreal, and everyone lost contact with their roots and family history. Its time to take back our nation and hold everyone accountable who caused the destruction of the original Constitution, and is attempting to consolidate that destruction today. Those are the Democrats, who are committed to socialism. Write to them and tell them you want the original Constitution restored. Democrats will protest, and threaten because you will be threatening their power.

Democrats hid under hoods so they would not be known as the founders of the KKK in 1968. It was an ad-hoc association of militants whose purpose was to stop black voters from voting for Lincoln. Almost all of its membership was, and still is Democrat. Easy to verify. I agree with you that the Democrats are only qualified as one of the two in our two party system, if they are loyal to the Constitution. They are not. Their purpose to subvert the Constitution is proven in their actions in the KKK, many corrupt politicians like Huey P Long, all the way up to Rod Blagojavich, their unConstitutional threatening of the Supreme Court, resulting in Wickard v. Filburn, Affirmative Action, Segregation, Obamacare.... Republicans have always been about preservation of the Constitution. Democrats have even tried to pervert that truth. Democrat leadership only cares about power, and the Constitution is a threat to that ambition. So pandering to their gullible utopian base is only natural. A far better party would be the Libertarians as the "loyal opposition." They are clearly loyal to the Constitution, and are definitely not in lockstep with Republicans.
