    ❗ 'Hate Hoaxes' more common than Hate Crimes?

    That was in the 1800's. Do better. We weren't segregated anymore when I went to school. One of the first friends I made was Nathaniel White in kindergarten. Maybe they did it then, they haven't taught it in the last 70 years that I know of. Maybe some parents taught it in the home, but it wasn't at my house or any of my friends houses. Now they're fighting for segregation again. All of the Civil Rights era marchers would be marching on those that seek it today. That's not what they fought for.

    ❗ 'Hate Hoaxes' more common than Hate Crimes?

    I don't know. I had the scores to go to any college in Texas except Trinity and Rice, because I didn't take additional tests that they required. I only had one scholarship that I won in a journalism contest for North Texas State. It was $500, what was that going to do buy me my books for the first year of college if I bought them new ? I was accepted to the three universities that I wanted to go to including SMU that my dad had attended. He told me if I wanted to go to college I'd better get to work, because I had a year to start making a living to pay for my own tuition or as he said "pull myself up by my own bootstraps". I was out of the house and on my own within 6 months. I never asked for any money from him, and haven't needed it since. I guess that's white privilege. If it hadn't been for people calling in bad orders at Domino's Pizza I probably would have lived on ramen noodles and hot dogs the entire time I was an M.I.T. (Assistant manager), until I became one.

    ⚾ 2019 College Baseball

    Texas has used 16 different pitchers so far this year. They have arms for days, which is a huge difference from last year. Now they just need to find their roles in either the rotation or bullpen.
  7. No way he doesn’t opt out after the fifth year. He’ll be 31? He’ll sign with some other team for another 300-400 mil.

    The US also does a significant amount of (expensive) medical research. I would guess more than many other "modern" countries.

    When Judd's starts looking for a new job, and they google his name, it will not be good. I have no idea what is going on, and don't know if he is guilty or not. Whatever happened has damaged his reputation, and it will take a while to rebuild it. That is sad if he is not guilty.

    The US pays more for healthcare and gets less care than the rest of modern countries.

    That means it ain't free. And in the "New Green Deal" they want money for people who are "unwilling" to work.

    A Study of Mark

    Mark 1 By: Jim Crews The Book of Mark was written by John Mark in Rome in 64. This book was written to the Romans in order to show the ministry and life of Jesus to them. John Mark died in 69 in Alexandria, Egypt. Mark 1: 1 - 8 Mark begins at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. He restates the prophecy by Isaiah of a messenger who would prepare the way for the Messiah. He then tells of John the Baptist in his wilderness ministry. John was teaching and proclaiming a baptism for the forgiveness of sins. He dressed in old clothing and ate locusts and wild honey. He preached that the coming Messiah was greater than him, and that while he baptized with water, the Messiah would baptize them with the Holy Spirit. Mark 1: 9 - 11 Jesus came from Nazareth to be baptized by John, When He came up out of the water, He saw the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit descending on Him like a dove, proclaiming that He was the beloved Son of God, and God was well pleased with Him. Mark 1: 12 - 13 He was immediately driven to the wilderness by the Spirit for forty days to be tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals and angels ministered to Him. Mark 1: 14 - 15 After John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee proclaiming the Gospel of God. He told them that the time was fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God was at hand. He taught them to repent and believe in the gospel. The time that was fulfilled was the time prophesied by Daniel. This was the end of the Mosaic Age. Mark 1: 16 - 20 While passing along the Sea of Galilee, Jesus Simon and Andrew fishing. He told them to follow Him and become fishers of men. They immediately left their nets and followed. A little farther along, He saw James and John, sons of Zebedee, in their boats mending nets. He called them and they immediately left Zebedee and followed Jesus. Mark 1: 21 - 28 They got to Capernaum, and on the Sabbath Jesus immediately entered the synagogue and began teaching. They were astonished because Jesus taught as one who had authority, not like the scribes taught. A demon possessed man came into the synagogue. He knew that Jesus was the Son of God, and asked had He come to destroy them at that time. Jesus told the demon to be silent and come out of the man. The demon convulsed the man and came out of him. The people were amazed and asked if this was a new teaching with authority, since Jesus was able to command demons, who had to obey Him. His fame spread through the region. This is why miracles were used in the first century. To show that what was being taught was authorized by God. Anyone claiming to have some new teaching from God today, had better be prepared to back it up by performing true miracles. Mark 1: 29 - 31 They left the synagogue and entered the house of Simon, Andrew, James, and John. Simon’s mother-in-law was sick with a fever, and they told Jesus about her. He healed her and she began to serve them. Mark 1: 32 - 34 That evening, the people came with their sick and with those who were demon possessed. Jesus healed the sick. He cast out the demons, refusing to let them speak because they knew who He was. Mark 1: 35 - 39 Jesus rose early and went to a secluded place to pray. Simon found Him and told Him everyone was looking for Him. He told them that they were moving along to the next towns to preach, because this was His mission. He went through all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues, healing the sick, and casting out demons. Mark 1: 40 - 45 A leper came and begged Jesus to heal Him. Jesus was moved with pity and healed the man. Jesus told him not to tell anyone, but to go to the priest to fulfill his duties under the Mosaic Law. The man spread the news freely, so Jesus couldn’t go into any towns without attracting a crowd. He stayed in the wilderness, but people came out to Him anyway.
