I didn't think my statement was harsh qty 226- If it came across that way - my apologies All I'm really saying is that the framing of any question can tailor the response you get. A confrontational question or an opinion masqerading as a neutral question will draw heated words.

Oh' the Southern Strategy was innocuous. I see the light now!!

When Reagan kicked off his presidential campaign in Philidelphia, MS and liberally referred to states' rights, he wasn't giving a wink and a nudge to the good people of ol' Mississippi and their resistance to civil rights.

Re: A new church experience!

I've always been suspicious of any religious institution that claims to be "non-denominational." Even in these seemingly neutral church environments, one religion usually takes precedence over all others: CHRISTIANITY. Therefore, I think the goal of such churches is to merely attract more members. Church leaders have recognized that more and more people have become unwilling to commit themselves to one religious establishment, and so they merely change the origninal names of the church to...

Wow! A tiny note: They are not as ORGANIZED as thought. Having trouble with the transition. Trump can't find qualified repubs to man major agencies.
