    I think this captures the essence of your post.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

      Your post is dishonest. You have placed words I did not say in a box that explicitly says "Originally posted by carpedm9587." I expected better of you than to post lies.

        This post confirms that I was correct in my estimation. Thanks.

        I'm pretty sure most people with a basic grasp of English understand that I was paraphrasing you. You take yourself way too seriously.

            A lie is a lie - and putting words in someone's mouth that you want them to say is not "paraphrasing."

            Do with that what you wish. I'll leave the last word to you. Based on previous posts, I think I'm safe predicting it will be more self-justification.

              I'm impressed that you managed to succinctly include mind-reading (if not outright misrepresentation, while complaining of exactly that - I TOLD you why I summarized your post) AND sanctimony in that teensy post. You should strive for brevity more often - it doesn't seem to cramp your style much.

                based on previous posts I am safe predicting THAT is not true.

                  You come across as feeling rather stressed. Is life OK? Maybe arguing so much on TWeb isn't helpful??

                      Iran will typically 'act out' when their own economy or society is in collapse - "hey, look over THERE!!!!"

                      We've seen this before. Remain calm and stay tuned.

                      • Meanwhile, Trump continues to run the table on the trade war as billionaires start to pull their money out of the high risk zone that China has become.

                          On Shark Tank (which I used to watch frequently) one of the pieces of advice the "sharks" frequently gave the entrepreneurs was "you have to take production to China".... That may not be so wise anymore.

                              It was never wise.
