    Interesting article on living "paycheck to paycheck"

    Yes, precisely. There was nothing easy for me getting out of those circumstances and I knew several people who had the attitude you mention. I never disparage anyone who is doing their best to make their life better because I know how hard it can be. As far as I am concerned, they are some of...

    Interesting article on living "paycheck to paycheck"

    I read this article today, and found it very interesting. This is a gift link so anyone can read this article, even without a subscription: What Does It Really Mean I agree with Peter Coy, the author of this opinion piece. We have expanded the meaning of living "paycheck to paycheck" to levels...

    Covid-19 miscellany

    Why should I? I am not the one saying that there are no valid mask studies at all. You would be more convincing if you could show a current valid study supporting your position. Ruth

    GOP primary front runner - Twitter video saying he is RINO Hunting

    This guy has always been batsh*t crazy. I had a waitress friend who had an encounter with him during his campaign for governor that was completely nuts. I tried to point that out to people but had no luck. Ruth

    Are there any Oklahoma residents on here, or people with family/friends in Oklahoma?

    I would - but I am not local to his area, and it would do no good at all where I live. Plus every paper I have seen limits letters to the editor to just a few hundred words and there is really no way to cut down what I wrote and still have it cover everything that needs to be said. It is...

    I thought about this whole situation, and decided I wasn't going to let him silence me. THIS is the result. Feel free to share the link. Ruth

    Are there any Oklahoma residents on here, or people with family/friends in Oklahoma?

    I may :whistle: :D Thank you. He apparently has a very thin skin, if his only idea was to block me and delete a comment which was just asking a question. Ruth

    Are there any Oklahoma residents on here, or people with family/friends in Oklahoma?

    This morning, I finally commented on his post: I just went back to his page to see if he had replied - and POOF! Don't know if it was due to me or other comments, but he has either deleted his personal Facebook page or changed the permissions to allow only certain people access. But I did...

    I offer without comment his latest Facebook post - read it carefully and make sure you select to see "All comments" under his post. American Constitutionalist Ruth

    Are there any Oklahoma residents on here, or people with family/friends in Oklahoma?

    Well, I do agree with you on that - but the idea that someone thinks a service member who receives SNAP benefits should lose their voting rights positively sets my head on fire with anger. Anyone who is honorably serving in the military deserves only our highest respect, and taking away their...

    Are there any Oklahoma residents on here, or people with family/friends in Oklahoma?

    And this is our latest interaction - note that he very carefully did not use the "Reply" function, so I would not be notified of his comment :rolleyes: Ruth

    Are there any Oklahoma residents on here, or people with family/friends in Oklahoma?

    This specifically applies to people living in Oklahoma’s 3rd congressional district – but also indirectly to all of us in the US. Wade Burleson is a retired pastor and is running for that congressional seat. Today on his personal Facebook page, he posted this comment on a post titled “SAVE OUR...

    Why Are Police So Bad at Their Jobs?

    My family has a long history of public service (military, police, firefighters, EMT’s). I currently have two close family members who are police officers. Another one recently retired from the police force. A fourth retired from the Marines then served as a police officer, was named chief of...

    Crazed Pastor Greg Locke Dissolves Tax Exempt Status

    Well, I really don’t have any proof but I personally think that the inception of this mindset came when white evangelicals realized they were becoming the minority in the faith community. This was due to our country’s previously fairly liberal immigration policies bringing in people of all races...

    Crazed Pastor Greg Locke Dissolves Tax Exempt Status

    I belong to a very small (fewer than 300 members) private online religious group composed of people who shudder every time we see something like this. One of the questions asked of prospective members is "Can a Christian vote for a Democrat?". If you say no, you are not allowed to join. If you...

    The Southern Baptist Convention

    This 👆 EXACTLY this. Invariably, abusers are those who think they have power or want to have power. It makes no difference whether or not they are religious. These people crave the feeling that they have power over others. That being said, this has been an open secret in the SBC for years now...

    Covid-19 miscellany

    Same here at Gerbes (which is owned by the Kroger company) and a local chain. No tipping allowed. It always makes me feel a little uneasy to not be able to tip for service. Ruth

    Covid-19 miscellany

    Where did you get that? Everything I have read, including this article, point out that the children were not vaccinated. This is the applicable part of the linked article: As for the rest of your post: I have never read anything that said this. Sources please. Ruth
