Oh yes: Bernie Sanders’s campaign hit with … federal labor complaint — Sweet, sweet schadenfreude. Couldn’t happen to a nicer Socialist.
Study: No evidence white cops more likely to use lethal force against minorities — “You mean we destroyed Ferguson, LA, Baltimore and more for no good reasons? Sorry, our bad.” The race-baiting Democrats and media are complicit in perpetuating these lies that cause unnecessary division, violence and property damage.
Casting Crowns to Tour With Elevation and Hillsong — What a disappointment!
Casting Crowns is set to begin touring in November with the bands of two of the most notorious false churches in the world today — Hillsong and Elevation. Both of these churches (to be accurate, they are not churches) are built upon the foundation of the false prosperity gospel. Their bands exist for the sole purpose of propagandizing the organizations they represent. Their music consists of shallow lyrics that mimic the preaching of their respective leaders — Brian Houston and Steven Furtick.
Simply put, they are cults — and they are dangerous.I can hear the arguments now. Just because they’re traveling together and singing together doesn’t mean they endorse each other (in a high-pitched, mocking voice). Actually, yes, it does. Unless you’re going to rebuke them or speak out against them, you’re tacitly endorsing them. You share a stage with them, sing with them, worship with them — you’re according with Belial, and the Bible warns against that. Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers.
For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols?
Democrats’ “Equality Act” Will Duplicate Canada’s Brazilian Wax Horror Show in America — Yep. And they don’t care.
Beating the Diderot Effect — Good advice on finances.
The Diderot Effect states that obtaining a new possession often creates a spiral of consumption which leads you to acquire more new things. As a result, we end up buying things that our previous selves never needed to feel happy or fulfilled.
The article uses an example from the life of Denis Diderot, the French philosopher for whom the effect is named, in which he uses a windfall to purchase new clothes, then notices that all of his other clothes now look shabby by comparison, spurring a round of clothes-buying that ended up hurting him financially.
In short, the new clothes, which he bought so that he could feel better about how he dressed, actually ended up making him feel worse and spurred him into a clothes spending spree just so he could feel good about his clothes again but damaging his financial state along the way.
This is a sentiment I’ve observed in my own life. As someone who uses digital devices for almost all of my work, I find that when I upgrade or replace one device, I have this strange gut feeling that I should upgrade or replace all of the devices I rely on – my main desktop computer, my laptop, my tablet, and my phone, all of which have very distinct use cases and all of which I use at least a few times a week. The ones I’m not replacing feel old and shabby and I’m noticing all of the features of the newer models far more than usual. I don’t need a new iPad yet, but the new model with the Pencil that sticks to the side of the tablet and charges automatically… so, so tempting.
New York dives into the black hole of wind turbine energy — What a farce these Leftists are bringing on themselves. Their costs will triple — and that’s before the impact of union-only labor kicks in — and the power companies aren’t allowed to itemize bills to highlight the ridiculous costs. More and more people will flee this ridiculous state, making it worse for those left behind. Once again, Leftists fail at basic economics.
Not the Babylon Bee
We’re gonna need a lot of millstones to clean this up . . .
