The following is the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Quote:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Based on the current plan to reopen Illinois, until some extremely stiff conditions are met, no church larger than 10 to 50 people will be allowed to open fo ...More Read More

I talked with my wife tonight about moving to Indiana. The governor appears to be far more rational than the overfed billionaire we have in Illinois. The state has released a nicely detailed opening plan, including acknowledging that three counties are not ready to reopen yet, with the vast majority of the can reopen. For anyone interested, you can find the plan at the state of Indiana website. It is very well thought out, and has just about everything re-opening by May 23, the three proble ...More Read More

The mayor of New York, who at one time actually was running for the Democratic nomination for President is showing more and more his anti-Semitic leanings. I keep wondering what happens if he actually goes ahead and has several hundred Hasidic Jews arrested and tossed into jail. If that happens, I will be curious to see if the city practices its catch-and-release policy or decides to keep them locked up to punish them for disobeying the mayor. I suspect that they will stayed locked up for as ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Armenian Genocide Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #210 New April 26th, 2020 08:30 PM
A couple of days ago was the commemorative day for the Armenian Genocide attempted by the Turks during World War One. While the Turks fiercely deny that anything took place, the evidence is overwhelming that it did. Just put Armenia into the search of Project Gutenberg, and look at the results. Then do the same at archive.org. There are quite a few people of Armenian descent in my area, including the orthodontist that worked with my two children.

The thing that struck me in going through ...More Read More

Well, I will have to see if either of my two posts to the Pit survive. In one, I dared to mention religion, in the other, I dared to criticize the actions of my state governor. I do not think that he has missed a meal in a decade or two or three. It will be interesting to see how the lawsuit regarding the length of emergency powers plays out. The law does not allow for a whole lot of wiggle room.

Next, why is it that the mayor of Chicago can break stay-at-home orders and get her hair dow ...More Read More

  #208 New April 6th, 2020 02:50 AM
I actually have been thinking about other things besides the country-that-shall-not-be-named virus. I have kept working through the history of the Reformation and the history of the Dark Ages, and added some reading in the history of the Inquisition. The Inquisition history is interesting as it goes into, to start with, the condition of the Medieval and Pre-Reformation Church, giving plenty of sources. The sources are pretty much all Church authors of various rank, protesting against the vic ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Odds and Ends on Virus Entry Tools Rating: 1 Stars!
  #207 New April 3rd, 2020 01:09 AM
By virus, I refer to the Chinese Virus, bot did not wish to use it in the title for fear of moderator editing. I also debating adding "Not Traveller Virus", but decided that might get the moderators upset as well. I guess you would say that those thoughts are included in my Odds and Ends.

In Moot Member Blogs Some Bright Spots Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #206 New April 1st, 2020 02:30 AM
We had some bright spots amid all of the gloom and doom from the media today. My wife's college roommate had been a missionary in Venezuela, but got out retired before things totally tanked there, and is not living in Florida. She called last week to let us know that a surprise was in the mail to us. The package arrived today, and I waited until my wife got home from the tax office to open it. Inside was a 12-pack of toilet paper with a Spanish label, and a note saying that these "special p ...More Read More

The Powers That Be are upset with me for referring to the coronas virus which apear first in the Wuhan Province of China as the "Chinese Flu", hinting that such referencing could be viewed as "racist". It does appear that the Zhodani are not the only thought police in the Traveller Universe. I am not sure if they would have been upset if I followed the line if the Chinese and Iranian governments in blaming the US for developing the visur is some incredibly secret biological weapons lab and th ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Longer Tax Season and Chinese Flu Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #204 New March 24th, 2020 01:58 AM
Well, with the extension of the tax filing date to July 15th, my wife will be working a lot longer than she thought this tax season. We will have to see how many hours she will be putting in as time goes on, but she is currently making appointments for May. This will be an "interesting" year to say the least.

As I still am not sure to what extent comments regarding the Chinese Flu are allowed in the Discussion Forum, I will make them here for now. After doing some refresher reading online ...More Read More
