Where's the Payoff in Gambling?

Where is the payoff as regards any recreational dollar spent? Sports, films, music, luxury cars, . . . . ? Isn’t it all chalked up to “standard of living” made possible by (somebody’s) work and investment capital?

Why I Wrote 'Jesus on Trial'

You are right, Henry. There is more historicity to support Jesus of Nazareth than any other character in history. He was either Lord, liar or lunatic . . . take your choice. Christianity is a guiding philosophy ... not, necessarily, a religion. Jesus’ message was one of liberty and personal responsibility. Perhaps, that’s the real “heresy” for which the Pharisee had him crucified . . . and the reason big-government ideologues find Christianity a threat today.

These days, the Constitution is always relegated to the back of the bus, when the choice is between Constitution and political power. The voters are to blame, not politicians. The Constitution was specifically written for us . . . . If we let the crooks take over our business, who’s to blame?

Absolutely right. As a white libertarian, many of my political heros are black. Proving, I suppose, that it really is the content of one’s character - not skin color. Which makes me wonder: do liberals really understand what Martin Lither King, Jr. was talking about?
Yes, Minimum wage mandates can stimulate the robotics industry. But it doesn’t suggest that low-skilled workers will get $15/hr jobs making hamburger-flipping robots.
Wage mandates are entirely about politics, not economics. Wage mandates improve no one’s standard of living any more than you can stand in a bucket and lift yourself up by the handle. Wage mandates only serve as a regulation AGAINST hiring low skilled workers. Someone should tell Rev Charles that the worst kind of stupid is not knowing you're stupid. It’s double stupid. It means you’re both ignorant and stupid. OR, maybe Rev. Charles isn’t stupid . . . Maybe he’s just a good politician.
Medicare Part B; No child left behind; the Bailouts; the home mortgage debacle and other socialist BS . . . . yeah, Bush was a real gem. He’s lucky Obama came along to rob him of the Worst President Trophy.
While I agree with some of these names, the list better serves to remind me why I’m registered Independent.
The “Wars and Rumors of Wars” industry. No war has ever brought lasting peace - either in the Bible or more recent History. Jesus gave us a prescription for “lasting peace” but, apparently, it’s too bitter a pill for mankind to swallow. Men - particularly political leaders world wide - find War easier to practice than Christianity.
