I wish to make atonement for forgetting to post today's class. I had to leave town to babysit my grandkids. When I realized my mistake I tried to get on line with my kindle to alert someone to open for me. For some reason, although I tried numerous times, I couldn't make a wifi connection work. So sorry. Homework will be accepted late.

There is no atonement for the sin of liberalism. None at all.

So very true. One must grow up and become Republican by 30, or die a liberal.

The world would be astonished if 0 atoned for his sins against Christianity.

Remedial Class is by definition atonement.

Would this not be considered, “Word for the Evening”?

For his myriad offenses against the Nation, including, inter alia, his refusal to acknowledge the intrinsic evil of militant Islam; his systematic evisceration of the Separation of Powers provided under the U.S. Constitution; his continual arrogation and usurpation of power through unalloyed fiat and abuse of Executive Order, his complicity in the slaughter of members of Seal Team Six; his destruction of discipline and effectiveness in our Armed Forces; and his complicity in the massacre of Americans in Benghazi, there is no course of atonement severe enough to earn him forgiveness.

Do I need to mention his name?



America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

A++ I am shocked that Americans still support him and his evil antics.

We are doing fairly well. DH has been diagnosed with cancer, yet refuses to act. It is my biggest worry. Other that that life threat, we are fine. RME

I shall pray for your hubby that he gets himself to a medical facility ASAP. I just received word that one of our oldest friends died of cancer, and we didn’t even know it. (They lived on the other side of the country and had become VERY liberal so we only corresponded at Christmas. It happened fast.) He was diagnosed late, and there was no help available. This was an extremly talented and wealthy man who had everything to live for. He left a widow with 3 houses to care for. No children. They were both “only” children themselves, so there is not much family around at all. Funny thing, his wife has become conservative since his passing.

I don’t know how to advise you on that decision or indecision. Prayer is always a good start.

No need to worry about making atonement for matters beyond your control — it’s not you didn’t make a good-faith effort or should’ve known better, like before posting a state map depicting well-known locations....

The consultant advised surgery immediately to remove it. Prostate cancer can be ignored, they are not advising him to do that though. His brother has stage 4 prostate cancer, too late. DH is the 4th in his immediate family to get this same cancer.

I am still laughing at that map. I heard on the radio yesterday, during my long car ride, that Obama finally committed to an appearance at Binghamton University. It’s definitely on. Woo-ha. I think I will pass.

In early stages it is very treatable. Is he just resigning to it?

God watch over you folks ... my brother still shows PSA’s over 4 since a “complete” prostate removal nearly five years ago. He’s back on limited chemo — though why with the same Dr, I don’t know.

That means cells escaped. Scary. DH’s brothers PSA was in the hundreds. Really scary.

It was caught early, but the surgeon said because of a couple of things and his brother he is anxious about it and advised getting it out soon. DH wants the recommendation to be leave it alone, so he is. Some of his samples were at 70% already....not a good sign.

I was looking forward to jury duty, got a summons and a date. Was chatting with the DA when she was here for her meet and greet; she said since I am an EMT I will probably get bumped out. Dang, what a disappointment that will be. Said she saw my name on the list. Supposedly it’s a DUI case. Still, I want on it.

He needs to rethink it. If it were another cancer, I’d agree with him. But early treatment of prostate cancer is worth the try. How old is he? Is there any way to go to a different surgeon he may feel better with?

Never been called myself, but unlikely that an atty would make it through challenges. My SIL sat on a grand jury for a few months in Ohio.
