  1. A mandate without enforcement or consequences is essentially a suggestion. I'm just fine if that's the case.
  2. I don't see the word evil anywhere in his post. Or even as an implication. I think it's fair, not uncalled for, to point out people's past choices when they are running for political offices. It's the only real indicator of what we have of their future actions. JJ didn't say anything about qualifications either. Maybe this is why his posts are usually longer, so others don't misinterpret what he says
  3. I know @JohnsonJonesusually has long posts, but this one was pretty short. Did you not read the rest of it or did you stop at what you quoted?

    Taking Odds on the Election

    21 with COVID. There are others in the ICU for different reasons. And it doesn't seem like it would take much for that 21 to increase if people stop following guidelines.

    Taking Odds on the Election

    I don't think the %'s matter as much as the ability/capacity of the hospitals in the region have. If I was in Southern Utah, I'd be sure I was being extra cautious. https://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/archive/2020/06/26/cdr-we-need-your-help-with-dixie-regional-medical-centers-icu-nearly-full-chief-doctor-asks-people-to-wear-masks/#.XwNC6ihKiUl

    Temples And Protection

    A couple weeks ago, my wife and I finished studying April General Conference. Pres. Nelson's last talk addressed temple worship. My wife and I have been going through the temple section in the Gospel Library. It's been really good for me to help me remember the covenants and instruction. There is definitely some type of temple worship we can still do while the doors are closed. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/2020/04/57nelson?lang=eng https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/temples?lang=eng
  7. My aunt got married when she was 16 in the 70's. It wasn't a shotgun wedding, no early baby. Everyone thought it was right. They are still together with 7 children and over 20 grandkids.

    My doubting daughter

    That must be tough. My oldest is 12, so I haven't personally experienced a struggle like that. But I had my own wayward times. And I have two brothers that have left the church, most likely for good. I know it's taken an emotional toll on my parents. I hope the best for you and your daughter. There was an article in the Ensign a few years ago that might help. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/ensign/2016/02/when-a-child-leaves-the-church?lang=eng
  9. The quote below is snips from the SCMP article. The WHO should have published their frustration with China, but it's China that wasn't providing the information.
  10. The organizations that police aren't responsible, the governments that are policed are still directly responsible . (That was what I was trying to point out with the Enron/Arthur Anderson comparison)
  11. I don't think responsibility is binary, on or off. Yes, WHO should be more assertive, but that doesn't relieve China of the responsibility of cooperation and following procedures and guidelines. Was Enron not responsible for their fraud because Arthur Anderson didn't audit them correctly?

    Giant Guinea Pig

    Wow! I had no idea guinea pigs could get to that size. Looks like it might attack Buttercup and Wesley.
  13. I went to BYU my freshman year, (about 20 years ago) and lived in the Heritage Hall dorms. All the wards in those dorms were all about about 3 females to 2 males. Helaman Halls and Deseret Towers might have been split more evenly.

    Tyranny of the State

    I think most officers, most police departments, have better things to do than to try to set up a 'sting' like this. That officer didn't want to be there anymore than the owners' wanted him. But because a complaint was filed, he had to follow up. I'm sure as soon as he got in his car, he was grumbling about the stupid exec orders also.

    Tyranny of the State

    Because those "stores" aren't located in the city. And if they are, they are probably following the mask rule. Some of the rules seem silly, but it wouldn't be too hard for this store owner to comply with the exec. orders. Wear a mask, and instead of a live feed, record it, then post it later.
