Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the latest GOP imbecility; real life racism of the real-life Lincoln plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. “As I read and re-read Augustine I was learning how to think theologically. I saw Augustine making theological connections that I might not have naturally made. I saw Augustine wrestling with certain analogies for the Trinity—as if he was inviting the reader to wrestle with an analogy along with him—only to discard most of the analogies before the journey was done, for most of the analogies ultimately proved unhelpful. In short, by watching one of the greatest theologians of the Christian Church theologize, I was learning how to theologize.” – Bradley Green, The Imaginative Conservative

L.A. Times: Americans have a right to know WHO is on the enemies list. How about repealing the AUMF and issuing specific AUMF on specific groups. This requires Congress to actually discharge its constitutional role in foreign policy which is withholding the purse from the executive unless authorized by the People’s representatives

Embarrassment of the Brass: Military commanders promise to devote time, labor and resources to policing sexual misconduct in “this man’s Army”. The true cost of our never ending wars, obsession with “civil rights” (over civil liberties) and gender ignorance is now manifest to see, for friend and foe alike.
Meanwhile, in the Army’s Gotham City (the Pentagon) the inconceivably bloated “national security” State we have erected is turning hostile to any force that opposes it including the libs in the press. Maybe someone should tell that robot from Lost in Space to start chortling “Warning…Warning…G-man approaching!”
MALE members of the military report being “raped” too, here’s the nitty gritty details
