It was free at the point of use.
The government is in among those verses somewhere, I suppose.

It wouldn't be that unusual for a court to dismiss a charge if the charge was found to be made up hopes without evidence other than a louder accusation followed by an even louder accusation. Trouble for you Jim, is noise isn't the equivalent of evidence. Now be sure to make more noise, maybe I'll change my mind.

Nancy would say she has the money, and was eager to deal with the Donald, but when he says "waiting for you to send your down payment" she would hem and haw for weeks, while trying to find something else wrong with the deal.
Interesting conversation. It brings to mind something else, though. On the one hand it has been said if a man defends himself from the uncivilized, he shows he has no faith that God will defend him. On the other hand, it is now implied at least, that God needs our help in defending Jesus from insults from the uncivilized.

The downgrade of patriarchy in America can be traced back to 03 September, 1783 when the Founding Fathers won the American Revolution and when the U.S. Constitution was ratified on 21 June, 1788. This means that the collapse of patriarchy in America started a lot earlier than the 20th Century. Also, given that the Declaration of Independence signed on 04 July, 1776 assets that "all people are created equal", which is really an open-ended statement, it means that the Declaration of Independence was a potential catalyst for feminism in America. It should be noted that feminism is really rebellion against The Lord, which means that feminism is Satan's methods of liberating women from The Righteous Authority of The Lord.
Couple minor points. The Declaration doesn't say all people are created equal. And weren't the Puritans the ones who burned at the stake those they decided were witches? Leftovers from Catholicism? I wonder what Jesus might have told them? Maybe something like let him who has no sin cast the first torch?
It's good they admitted doing what they denied doing, especially since it was dumb to deny it. But it does cause one to wonder how you accidentally aim at and shoot down a civilian airliner after it just took off from one of your own airports.

Here's a thought. How about posting in context, a divisive racist comment from Trump?

When your friends take time off their murder rampage, maybe Christians can take time off.

I read another Bee headline someone sent me: ( from memory) "Democrats grasping at straws to impeach Trump now regret banning straws."
