Social Security collections

Not sure what to think about this one:

"According to the Office of Inspector General (OIG), the SSA issued $128 million in "low-dollar" overpayments between 2008 and 2013, and then spent $323 million to collect them. The [more]

Re: Do we live in a simulated Universe?

CCinOC,

You've got to be kidding. I mean, seriously, do you hear yourself? All the faith in the world isn't going to make a dent in God's response to being ordered around. I think you must be going for a reaction and nothing [more]

Re: Do we live in a simulated Universe?

CCinOC,

What has a comment about "ordering God around" (Art's comment) to do with faith? Nothing that I can see.

It has to do with faith in himself. For his ordering God around to work, he has to have [more]

1. You can only be married to one person at a time.

Re: can-o-worms

ilmostro,

Not sure I follow why being married to more than one person at a time will be legal now.

Because SCOTUS ruled that it's not up to the states to decide who can marry whom. It's only up to the individuals who want to [more]

Huh? No. Polygamy is still illegal in this country, and the supreme court didn't change that.

Phil, I suspect you and AOLFooman are those who, if Jesus Christ returned again and performed a few miracles, you still would not believe.* Your issue, I perceive, is submission to a higher authority, not belief.

It wasn't simply "gay" marrriage. It was "pretty much any two people" marriage.

Which makes you wonder: can either person, or both people, be a married person now?

Radish, thanks for the nice recap of Lewis. I've often heard about him, but never knew what his take was.

What I've found is that ordering God around or telling Him what to do rarely if ever works. I've tried it. It didn't work.
