    One thing I want to add is there should be a clause of “Teach a man to fish”. What I believe is give the person something so that they can get back on their feet. If you give someone money, that can propel them to get clothing to get a job and help them support themselves.

    That is the problem with politics. As you know Scott, I am on disability because my body is recovering from severe issue that could cause me to stroke or worse. Social Security Disability helped me pay for food and shelter. Politics want to take all that away and give big advantages to the 1%. If I recall right, that is the cardinal sin of Greed.

    When politicians goes “I am a Christian Family Man”..I roll my eyes and walk the other way. I am not Christian, but I have this understanding. If you must state you are christian, there is something wrong. A former coworker of mine used to say “Christian is not what you are, it is what you do”. His meaning was that instead using words, use actions to define yourself.

    Recently, an AZ State Legislature spewed “Mandatory Church”. In my opinion, a theocracy is against the teachings of Christ. My understanding is that if you don’t believe what I do, cool. That cannot occur with a Theocracy because it will be based on someone’s version of Christianity, which I agree it needs a brand manager.

    While I am not a christian as far as religions go, I believe in doing the best I can for all.

    Thanks for another video Scott. I really enjoy listening to your thoughts and ideas. I just wanted to offer a few thoughts here for you to ponder. I am no longer a Christian and there are many reasons for this but it seems to me that if you follow the teachings of the Bible, then at some point you are forced to discriminate. This is, in my opinion, especially true for those who take the Bible literally. If there is a heaven then there must be a hell and if there is a hell then those who are going to heaven must be set apart from those who are going to hell. As a Christian, I found it impossible to not discriminate. This is one of the reasons I left the faith. I felt like I was kidding myself when trying not to discriminate. I suppose that a response to this could be that discrimination is reserved for God only and not man. However, I think it’s just human nature to discriminate. Ultimately, what’s happening in Indiana is just another reason that I believe church and state should be set very far apart. We can’t force each other not to discriminate in the scope of our own minds, but when that discrimination goes beyond the scope of our mind and affects the life of another, we must have laws in place to keep this from happening. Well, the more I think about this the muddier the waters get. Can we talk about Star Wars please! Again, thanks for the videos Scott. Looking forward to seeing more of them.

    Well there is this well known fact that the devil lies, and this stupid belief that the devil cannot appear as Christ. Know the true words, and well lies make themselves known.
    Well? tell me that Jim Jones cannot be Jesus, Well? One must know when you cast out right, the left-overs come in, Soul wise. It is nice to know that the word ‘well’ is understood. Don’t be led, for when the wolf is the leader, you will be the sheep. One has to wonder, did they watch ISIL and think we should do their sins, here on our own soil? And thus comes, the devils pissing contest, a contest I will not enter, for everyone wins – go straight to hell. I guess hell got bored with Texas, and went north. I hope cooler heads pervail, and bring up what the Devil wants to bring down.
