Some believe that Joseph of Arimathea was Jesus' uncle (or great uncle). In fact, some believe that he had traveled with his uncle (a trader) all around the known world before he began his ministry. Maybe Jesus was born to a wealthy family? He did know how to read and write, something a lowly commoner would not have known. He was well-read and educated. Again, not something the lower class would have been.

Do I believe it? Not really, but it is interesting to consider.

If you subtract the number of wars in which Muslims are involved, the world is nearly totally peaceful. Mod me down if you wish, but look and read and learn first. An easier way would be to name the wars NOT involving Muslims.

There can be no peace with a religion that insists on converting you or killing you.

The difference between a woman getting ready for a date and a man getting ready for a date is this: the man looks in his mirror and wonders if he'll get lucky; the woman looks in her mirror and doesn't have to wonder.

'Tis far, far easier for a woman to get a date than a man.

This has been true for all of human history. It's what makes the world go round. Don't you love it?

A better known and safer alternative is resveratrol. You can try taking supplements which may or may not work, or just drink the red wine.

Resveratrol is an exceptional PDE-4 inhibitor. One supplement that has been thoroughly tested and found effective is Longevinex.

Trump has his faults, but I'd still prefer a man or woman who has signed the front side of checks over somebody who has signed only the backs of checks. Sanders, Obama, Bush, Hillary, etc. never held a real job or ran a business in their lives. They know squat about how an economy is supposed to work.

I'd want a snake on my side over a hedgehog.

What makes you think Hillary's on your side? She's on her own side. In fact, not one of the candidates from either party gives a rat's ass about you and me. I tend to vote for the candidate who I think will do the least damage. It's a shame in a country of over 300 million people that we can't come up with better leaders than what we've had for the last few decades.

He firmly believes that this country is a democracy. It's not a democracy and never was intended to be a democracy. Democracies simply don't work. The founders knew that and that's why we're a representative REPUBLIC. That's why the country is so far off the tracks now. We need to save the republic and steer clear of any thoughts about a democracy. Don't argue with me about semantics. Words have meanings. Go study your history.

Regardless of cause, I am sure that our benevolent government in Washington D.C. will come up with the solution to this problem. My guess is that massive tax increases and drastic lifestyle changes (for us, not them) will be involved.

Seriously, won't somebody think of the children millions of generations from now?
