This Jesuit needs to go visit the White House to do his exorcisms... and after that he should visit the Senate.

And don't get me wrong, I am a huge fan of the Jesuits... HUGE! Coolest religious order ever.

Probably because they don’t compromise their beliefs.

Benedict (265) has a better head than Francis (266).


It's always, "No, he didn't say that. No, he didn't mean that" with Francis.

Of course we all surely must know that neither Benedict nor Francis were ever the head of the Jesuits.

... never the Superior General of the Society of Jesus...

...never the Black Pope.

During the time of Benedict & Francis the heads of the Jesuits were: Peter Hans Kolvenbach, Adolfo Nicolás and Arturo Sosa.

That being very important indeed... some might argue more important than who is actually the Pope.



Perhaps it is a small matter of detail to you, but your "understanding" would be wrong.

Seeing as racism is often an inherited disease contracted by close proximity for a duration of time, tighten the laws on racist acts and speech with the punishment being sterilization for them and their offspring, as well as quarantine to someplace like Texas.

That ought to take care of it in a few generations!

Believe it or not, Texas is starting to evolve into a battleground state.

Yes.

And part of that (IMO) is because some in Texas are starting to realize that not all Republican policies actually fit either their opinions not their needs. Others are starting to realize that Trump isn't a true Republican anyway.

Still the Democrats are likely to lose that battle because they give the appearance of wanting to move too far to the left.

It seems that all 21st Century Republicans have to do to gain votes is to scream SOCIALISM.

The Democrats have no unified answer for being called extreme leftist commie-fascists who want to destroy the USA... and whenever they do come up with a good line, the Republicans either take it or flip its meaning.

The Dems definitely need to be doing a much better job of educating the public on the distinction between USSR-type socialism and the Democratic socialism of Western Europe, which still runs on capitalism. Sanders, the torch bearer of the latter, especially needs to do so, and hasn’t. Don’t assume the public is educated - in fact, that is exactly what the GOP has been spot on about and taking advantage of in this whole thing.

They also need to talk more about Mitch McConnell, but that’s another story.

I lean anti-fascist but I am not really a fan of the government doing a blanket ban on "extremism" or declaring certain forms of speech to be criminal acts in-and-of-themselves; this is because I am a libertarian.

Address issues of racial inequality by treating general issues of class inequality. Hesitatingly I may support limited anti-immigration measures although ideally I would love to see the abolition of all borders in the future. There is an uncanny link between nationalism and racism. Would not build a wall.

The abolition of all borders wouldn't be a good idea. A wall isn't good either. I think borders are important especially in the middle east where they are fighting over borders because they want to remain separate. Here, in the US, state borders don't mean all that much, in fact, they are just signs on the side of the highway with nice little pictures on them that say "Welcome to _______" but, borders of countries are important.

Take the border between the US and Mexico that everyone likes talking about nowadays as an example. The border, if controlled properly, should be able to stop most illegal immigration. It can also protect agriculture along the southern coast with its fruit and vegetable check and should control the flow of immigration.

Also, Without borders, people wouldn't know where one form of government starts and stops. I mean, what about places where countries that are democratic have communist or anarchist neighbors? Where would the democracy stop and the anarchy start?

There are a lot of problems that might be solved with the dissolving of all borders but many would arise as well. Until these problems solutions are found, borders should probably stay put.

Seems like this topic won't go away.

Okay then.

How about if President-Elect Biden tell us once and for all what racism means?

How about if President-Elect Biden tell us if we are supposed to use the n word?

Why does the Southern Poverty Law Center get to define all the terms? Who put them in charge of anything?

Mr Biden, what was the name of the organization you tied to White Supremacy which conducted violence on November 14?

Why is Donald Trump being tied to Hitler over and over?
