Chocolate Milk…Need Not Apply!

Just when you though things couldn’t get any worse…NYC wants to ban chocolate milk from schools!!!

First, the 20 ounce sodas, then the sky high cigarette tax, then “Meatless Monday’s” in NYC schools.

When will the madness end?

If I can’t have my chocolate milk, then obviously this is not the place for me.

NBC New York: Chocolate Milk Would be Banned in New York City Schools Under New Proposal

With all of this legislation and regulation, I would think that New York City would be the safest and healthiest city the world over. Is that the case?

  1. The liberals that run cities like New York, Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle are absolutely nuts man! 🙂 It is the blind leading the blind and they desperately need Jesus to open their eyes! Liberals are always trying to control everything and everyone. Welcome to socialism, where you can only have chocolate milk if the government says you can! May God have mercy on America and bring revival! God bless!

    1. You Stated — “The liberals that run cities like New York, Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle are absolutely nuts man! 🙂 It is the blind leading the blind and they desperately need Jesus to open their eyes! ”

      My Response — Are you saying that liberals don’t believe in God and conservatives do?

      1. Hi Lander7. That’s right. Most liberals don’t believe in Jesus and most of them hate Christians and conservatives. Do you think the liberals that run those cities believe in God? Do you think people who believe in God would let criminals like Antifa beat people in the streets? Do you think people who believe in God would want socialism or communism? People who truly love the Lord would never want those things. I pray God takes the sick liberal agenda down.

        1. Interesting perspective on liberals. I was just talking to one the other day and they were saying almost the exact same thing about conservatives.

          It would seem the two sides have that in common. Funny how both sides keep claiming god while denigrating the other.

          1. Interesting. Both liberals and conservatives and every other person on this earth are sinners. We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23) and we all need Jesus. If this liberal you talked to supposedly knows God, did you happen to ask them how they justify supporting the homosexual agenda and abortion? They can’t justify it because God does not support it. Conservatives are not perfect either and there are many people who don’t know Jesus on both sides, but it is very clear that liberalism is hostile to God. Socialism and communism are rooted in atheism. And one more thing I don’t claim a “god.” I believe in the One True God, capital G, the Father of Jesus Christ. Don’t get that confused. Jesus Christ is Lord and I guarantee you He does not support the sick, twisted and sinful liberal agenda. Killing babies and promoting an endless array of genders is not something God supports. Furthermore, I have not denigrated anybody. I simply pointed out that they are spiritually blind and they need Jesus as evidenced by their failing cities. Questions for you: what do you believe and where do you stand?

            1. You Stated — “If this liberal you talked to supposedly knows God, did you happen to ask them how they justify supporting the homosexual agenda and abortion?”

              My Response — No. Just like I don’t ask conservatives how they justify supporting interest and money hording.

              As a Christian I find it almost painful to talk to liberals and conservatives because they most often don’t read the bible. They just like to argue and blame the other made up group.

              If they don’t listen to God and stop pointing fingers at each other why would it matter what I have to say.

              I just point them to this verse so they can ignore it:

              Matthew 7:3-5
              3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

              And then this one so they can double down and really get self-righteous:

              Matthew 7:1-6
              7 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

              1. We are called to speak the truth. I read the Bible every day and I have been for almost 23 years now. We are called to correct each other within the church and we are called to pick up the truth, dust it off, and send it on its way whenever the world calls good evil and evil good. Was Paul being judgemental when he wrote 1 Corinthians 6:9-10? No he was not. He was speaking the truth. By the way, I don’t know what you are talking about regarding conservatives supporting “interest and money hoarding.” Working hard and investing is a sound Biblical principal. Read Proverbs. I understand the verses about judging just fine. Calling out sin for what it truly is and speaking the truth is not judging as those verses speak of. Is homosexuality not a sin? Is abortion not a sin? Yes, they are sins and I am simply agreeing with God and His Word.

                1. You Stated — “Working hard and investing is a sound Biblical principal. ”

                  My Response — Bible: Interest is an Abomination and your ignoring it means nothing. The word was true then, it’s true now and it will be true in the future regardless if you acknowledge it or not.

                  Ezekiel 18:13 — 13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

                  Leviticus 25:35-38 — 35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. 36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee. 37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase. 38 I am the Lord your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

            2. You Stated — “I have not denigrated anybody.”

              My Response — Ok, I’m not sure why you said that since I didn’t accuse you of having done so.

              You Stated — “I simply pointed out that they are spiritually blind and they need Jesus as evidenced by their failing cities.”

              My Response — You could have shortened it to, “Everyone needs Jesus since all have fallen short”, it would have been more honest since you are in the same boat.

              Romans 3:23
              23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

              You Asked — “Questions for you: what do you believe and where do you stand?”

              My Response — Jesus is Lord

              1 Corinthians 12:3
              3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

                1. You Stated — “My point was that the majority of liberals don’t know the Lord.”

                  My Response — That’s your opinion not a fact.

                  My Father is still not a liar, you do not know the thoughts of his children.

                  1 Corinthians 2:11
                  11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

        2. You Asked — “Do you think the liberals that run those cities believe in God? ”

          My Response — I’m not aware of any city on Earth following God so I’m not sure what you mean but to answer your question try this:

          1 Corinthians 2:11
          11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

          God has made it clear that I wouldn’t know and no one can claim to know since my father is not a liar. Only the father knows.

          1. Nice way to dodge the question. What do you mean your not sure what I mean? Those socialist liberals don’t believe in God and their hatred for Christ and Christians is evident. God can save anyone, yes, and I pray He does save them and He would spread revival through our country and the world.

            1. You Asked — “Do you think the liberals that run those cities believe in God? ”

              I Answered — “I’m not aware of any city on Earth following God….. but to answer your question try this: God has made it clear that I wouldn’t know and no one can claim to know since my father is not a liar. Only the father knows.”

              Then You Replied — “Nice way to dodge the question.”

              Oo

              It would appear that my answer above was ignored. Was this done on purpose to mock me or are you really not reading what I type?

              1. No, I’m not mocking you. It was a straight forward question and you said “I’m not sure what you mean.” People who kill babies and support an endless array of genders do not believe in God. It was a simple question with a simple answer. No, none of us know what is inside a man, but we will know them by their fruit.

                1. You Stated — “People who kill babies”

                  My Response — Nothing in the world has killed more children than Usury and Usury is fully supported by both the conservative and liberal parties.

                  What say you now?

                  1. Man you are funny bro, you really like to argue. Are you defending abortion now too?! I already gave you my answer regarding the unfair weights and measures in this country and yes there are traitors on both sides who support it. I was speaking only to working hard and saving for your family. I have never agreed with the evil bankers and the money they steal from us, so don’t even try to put words in my mouth bro! Here you go, read this:
                    https://authorryanc.com/2019/08/15/did-you-know-the-federal-reserve-is-a-private-banking-cartel/

                    Look, it’s Saturday morning. I have a beautiful wife and kids to love and spend time with. It’s been real fun arguing with you and everything, but I’m going in peace now. Have a blessed day.

                    1. You Stated — “Are you defending abortion now too?!”

                      My Response — Since I have never stated a position on abortion in our conversation it’s deceptive to indicate that I may be doing so.

                      It’s also a distraction from our actual conversation.

                      I’m also not talking about traitors but rather hypocrisy and how it goes against Gods living word.

                      As far as evil bankers I have no idea what you’re talking about. My focus was on the use of interest within the Christian community and how that is an abomination within the religion.

                      You are your own person, you can decide to use credit cards , loans, 401k’s etc.

                      Like I said before, we are all guilty. It would make more sense if instead of pointing fingers at other people you should just point at yourself. We are both just as guilty as the rest so stop pretending that liberals are the issue when we both know for a fact that we are all part of the problem.

                      As for calming down, this is just a basic 101 conversation on Christianity. We are not even having a hard conversation. If this is getting to involved for you then don’t respond anymore and the conversation will end with this last statement.

                    2. You don’t know about the bankers because you don’t know the truth about how this country is run. I don’t know what you’re talking about with the use of interest within the Christian community. That is nothing I’ve ever done. No, you never have stated a position, but it sure does sound like you’re defending abortion and homosexuality and trying to misuse Scripture in defending it. Liberals are the only ones promoting the homosexual agenda and abortion. Nothing I said has been a distraction. Of course we are all part of the problem. We are all sinners and I never said all conservatives believed in God either. And no, this is not a hard conversation and it will never be too hard for me. I’m just sick of talking to you. Have a nice day bud.

                    3. You Stated — “No, you never have stated a position” (On abortion or homosexuality)

                      My Response — Which is correct since we weren’t having a discussion about it but rather that you were pointing fingers at a political group.

                      But Then You Stated — ” it sure does sound like you’re defending abortion and homosexuality.”

                      My Response — How confusing and distracting is that? In one sentence you acknowledge I didn’t say something and then in the next you return to distracting from our actual conversation.

                      Let’s try this one more time. Those who point fingers are hypocrites since we are all guilty.

                      You can save time by just not responding if you were sincere in your statement that you don’t want to talk to me.

                      If you respond now that will make you a liar.

                      I also find your way of talking and picking and choosing responses to be a form of deception (not very christian like). Our topic is hypocrisy and how those who sin take a sad joy in ignoring their sin to point out the sin of others.

                      Also since I’m not talking about bankers we can stop distracting from what I actually pointed out and that is a persons direct use of interest bearing accounts that are causing wickedness in the world. The bankers aren’t forcing anyone to sin and they can’t be blamed for it by you.

                      Since I shouldn’t hear back from you on this because you stated, “I’m just sick of talking to you.” and also stated, “Go read the post and stop mouthing off. You are arrogant and argumentative and I’m sick of your mouth.”

                      I will leave you with this last word given you harsh tone.

                      Maybe this can help you.
                      Titus 3:1-15
                      Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, …

                      Jesus is Lord

                    4. That’s right, Jesus is Lord. I have not said anything deceptive, so stop pointing your finger at me and accusing me again. I don’t want to talk to you, but I will defend myself in the truth. Are you telling me that the liberal agenda is the same as the conservative agenda? Give me a break. You never answered my question about Paul. Was he judging and pointing fingers when he wrote 1 Corinthians 6:9-10? No he was not. He was speaking the truth and calling sin what it is. Why don’t you tell us all your position on abortion and the gay agenda? Is it because you are a liberal and you don’t like it when people point out that the liberal agenda is sinful? Conservatives are sinful too bro and they are not perfect, but don’t sit there and try to tell me that the liberal agenda is the same thing as the conservative agenda. Are you also telling me you don’t have a mortgage and you judge people who do? Are you kidding me? What, did you buy your house cash? Are you a millionaire or something?

                    5. You Stated — “I don’t want to talk to you”

                      My Response — And yet here we are talking again (your choice)

                      Let’s stop wasting time and just get to the truth and leave out all the unnecessary drama about not talking to me again.

                      Recap:

                      We are having a conversation about hypocrisy, nothing else. So moving forward we can leave out all the distractions.

                      I disagree with your pointing out liberals as the cause of wickedness in America when I know for a fact it’s caused by every single person per my Fathers words.

                      Romans 3:23
                      23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

                      Nothing you have said justifies why you point at one and ignore the other. Show me a verse that states that it’s OK to blame one while ignoring the other and the argument will end instantly. Until you do I will continue to point out hypocrisy.

                    6. You Stated — “You never answered my question about Paul. Was he judging and pointing fingers when he wrote 1 Corinthians 6:9-10?”

                      My Response — No he was not. Paul spoke of inheritance of the kingdom to all of mankind.

                      1 Corinthians 6:9-10 King James Version (KJV)
                      9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

                      Compared to what you stated to just a group of God’s children:

                      You Stated — “Hi Lander7. That’s right. Most liberals don’t believe in Jesus and most of them hate Christians and conservatives.”

                      But my Father said:
                      1 Corinthians 2:11
                      11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

                      You are either wrong and my Father is right since you don’t in fact know their hearts or you are calling this verse a lie.

                      Millions of God’s children who are liberal go to church every Sunday and seek answers to hard questions just like conservatives. But you take it upon yourself to pick and choose what their hearts believe. Who are you to judge them?

                    7. You Asked — “Why don’t you tell us all your position on abortion and the gay agenda?”

                      My Answer — Your question is easy to answer. Everything that God finds wrong I trust to be as he says. And every person who does wrong in the eyes of God should answer only to God.

                      John 8:4-11
                      4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

                      5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

                      6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

                      7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

                      8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

                      9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

                      10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

                      11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said

                      Hypocrisy is the contrivance of a false appearance of virtue or goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations, especially with respect to religious and moral beliefs; hence, in a general sense, hypocrisy may involve dissimulation, pretense, or a sham. Hypocrisy is the practice of engaging in the same behavior or activity for which one criticizes another. In moral psychology, it is the failure to follow one’s own expressed moral rules and principles

                    8. You Stated — “Is it because you are a liberal and you don’t like it when people point out that the liberal agenda is sinful?”

                      But You Saw My Statement — “As a Christian I find it almost painful to talk to liberals and conservatives”

                      My Response — So are you calling me a liar or are you mocking me yet again?

                      When I state that you are deceiving this is what I speak of.

                      You Asked — “Are you also telling me you don’t have a mortgage and you judge people who do?”

                      My Response — I don’t have a mortgage furthermore if you do have one that’s between you and God, who am I to judge.

                      To be clear I’m not claiming any high ground or pointing a finger since I have already stated that we are all sinners and fall short multiple times. Your attempt to shame me is nonsensical.

                    9. Furthermore, you are the one picking and choosing responses dude and acting judgemental pointing your finger at me. You tried to call me a liar twice now and I have not been deceptive at all. I responded to all of your comments and I have been straightforward and truthful too. Anyone can read these comments and see that. Go in peace.

                    10. You Stated — “Furthermore, you are the one picking and choosing responses dude and acting judgemental pointing your finger at me.”

                      My Response — I challenge you to show me where I picked and choose. If I haven’t answered a question let me know and I will do so right now.

                    11. This message is too Coffee:

                      Hey brother, Out of respect for you and your blog, I’m going to leave this conversation now. I appreciate the opportunity to speak truth on your blog. God bless you!

                2. You Stated — “No, I’m not mocking you. It was a straight forward question and you said “I’m not sure what you mean.”

                  My Response — You mock me now since we can both see my entire answer. Are you lying to me now or are you calling me a liar because I can see my entire answer below just as I typed it before. Taking part of what a person of faith states and pretending it is all he stated is deception.

                  My Response — I’m not aware of any city on Earth following God so I’m not sure what you mean but to answer your question try this:

                  1 Corinthians 2:11
                  11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

                  God has made it clear that I wouldn’t know and no one can claim to know since my father is not a liar. Only the father knows.

        3. You Stated — “Do you think people who believe in God would want socialism or communism?”

          My Response — They wanted slavery so why would I believe they wouldn’t want anything else?

          The Slave Ship That Claimed To Love Jesus:
          https://realitydecoded.blog/2019/07/02/the-loved-slave-ship-jesus-of-lubeck/

          You Stated — “I pray God takes the sick liberal agenda down.”

          Matthew 5:43-48
          43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

          1. What?! Are you saying that Christians support slavery? Man, I don’t know who you are, but that is one of the most wack things I have ever heard someone say about Christians. I don’t support slavery. Yes, I know the Bible verses too bro. I do pray for them. I pray God smites their evil agenda and I pray He saves their souls. I will continue to stand on the truth of God’s Word and I will continue to speak His truth boldly and unashamed.

            1. You Stated — “Do you think people who believe in God would want socialism or communism?”

              Then I showed you this — John Hawkins, who had a reputation for being a religious man who required his crew to “serve God daily” and to love one another.

              Sir Francis Drake accompanied Hawkins on this voyage and subsequent others. Drake, was himself, devoutly religious. Services were held on board twice a day.

              Hawkins captured 300-500 slaves, mostly by plundering Portuguese ships, but also through violence and subterfuge promising Africans free land and riches in the new world.

              He returned home with a profit and ships laden with ivory, hides, and sugar. Hawkins’ lucrative business in profiting from human atrocities was abruptly ended in 1567 when his fleet was confronted by Spanish conquistadors in the Gulf of Mexico.

              And then you asked me this — “What?! Are you saying that Christians support slavery?”

              Do you know any christian that doesn’t sin? Sin supports sin. You and the other liberals and conservatives take joy in pointing fingers while at the same time you engage in sin. Why not save some time and cut out the middle man and just point at yourself.

              1. Yeah right old John Hawkins was a Christian! Sounds like he was a false preacher, a wolf in sheep’s clothing! The guy who wrote the song “Amazing Grace” was a former slave ship captain who came to Jesus and after He believed in Jesus he repented of being a slave ship captain and never lived that way again. A true Christian would never take slaves.

                Of course Christians are sinners! We are sinners saved by grace! I never said otherwise. You are the one pointing your finger bro as you sit there acting divisive trying to defend liberals! What, are you one of those believers who thinks they can be a liberal too? Or are you just a divisive brother who likes to fight and stick his finger in other believer’s faces? You might want to take your own advice bro and put that pointing finger away. You sound like someone who likes to attack Christianity.

                I never said Christians are perfect and I never said I am perfect. I know how much I have been forgiven. It’s not about pointing fingers. It’s about speaking the truth of God’s Word to society about what will happen if we continue down the dark path of liberalism. Not sure what your argument with that is, unless of course you are a liberal. Socialism and communism are from the evil one and they are rooted in atheism.

                Have a nice weekend bro.

                1. You Stated — “It’s not about pointing fingers. It’s about speaking the truth”

                  My Response — Then Speak your own truth. Stop pointing fingers while saying “It’s not about pointing fingers”. Tell the world how YOU are disobeying God and what YOU need to change.

                  Unless you are without sin.

            1. You Stated — “Our nation will not be blessed if we go down the path of wickedness. Grace and peace.”

              My Response — This nation entered into a pack with wickedness a long time ago when it joined the world banking system and implemented slavery for monetary gain.

              Ezekiel 18:13 — 13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

              Leviticus 25:35-38 — 35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee. 36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee. 37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase. 38 I am the Lord your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

              1. Yes, we must get rid of the Federal Reserve, I agree! I actually just wrote a post about the truth regarding the Federal Reserve several weeks ago. As I said, I am praying for the Lord to spread revival to our nation. God bless you brother.

                1. You Stated — “Yes, we must get rid of the Federal Reserve, I agree!”

                  My Response — I never said the federal reserve but the BIBLE did say interest.

                  “Usury” means a premium or increase paid or stipulated for a loan of money or goods, interest; the lending out of money with an interest charge for its use; the taking or practice of taking interest.“

                  Credit Cards
                  Bank Loans (on Churches no less)
                  401k
                  Home loans
                  Auto loans

                  The world is being destroyed by what the Bible calls an abomination. Children are dying world wide due to greed and money hording by what my Father calls an abomination.

                  Tell me how the conservatives are not supporting this abomination?

                  My Father is not a liar and his word cannot be ignored!

                  Ezekiel 18:13 — 13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

                  1. All of those unfair weights and measures in this country came from the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Yes, there are traitors on both the left and right who support it. I don’t support that. I do support working hard and saving for your family and that’s all I was speaking to. I have been praying for the Lord to remove the Federal Reserve from our country for years. Study it if you don’t know how the bankers took over in 1913. Of course God our Father is not a liar! I NEVER SAID GOD WAS A LIAR! I love Jesus Christ with all my heart. Go in peace.

                    1. You Stated –“All of those unfair weights and measures in this country came from the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Y”

                      My Response — Are you saying that you don’t have credit cards? OR That they were forced on you by the Federal Reserve?

                      Are you saying that you don’t have loans? OR That they were forced on you by the Federal Reserve?

                      Are you saying that you don’t know that interest is causing the deaths of millions of children every year? OR that it doesn’t matter since the Federal Reserve is to blame and you are blameless in your support via the use of banks, credit cards, and loans and monetary hording by the ultra rich who hide behind politicians that you elect?

                    2. Did you even read my post that I wrote about the Federal Reserve?! You don’t know what I believe bro because you don’t even take the time to learn where I stand! Don’t go accusing me bro! Go read the post and stop mouthing off. You are arrogant and argumentative and I’m sick of your mouth.

                    3. You Asked — “Did you even read my post that I wrote about the Federal Reserve?! You don’t know what I believe bro because you don’t even take the time to learn where I stand! ”

                      My Response — Slow your roll there speedy. It’s a big post and I’m taking my time with it. So far I have some big issues with the premise (see below). I will respond on your page.

                      You Stated — “Most people in America still think the Federal Reserve is part of our government. If you still think that, think again.”

                      My Response — Why are we thinking again when the following is still a fact?

                      — The U.S. Congress created the FED
                      — The U.S. Congress established the objectives for the Federal Reserve.
                      — The 12 Federal Reserve Banks are owned by the U.S. government. (Oo Federal Banks)
                      — The FED distributes federal government currency for the U.S. Treasury Department. (Federal money for a federal agency)
                      — The members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System are nominated by the President of the United States and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

                      The current members are:
                      Jerome Powell – Republican Party (Former government job United States Department of the Treasury) – nominated to the Fed Chair position by President Donald Trump

                      Richard Clarida – Republican Party (Former government job Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy)

                      Randal Quarles – Republican Party (Former government job Under Secretary of the Treasury for Domestic Finance.)

                      Lael Brainard – Democratic Party (Former government job United States Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs)

                      Michelle Bowman – Republican Party Former government job senior staff member for FEMA)

                      If it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and acts like a duck, how can it be a cat?

                    1. It apparently goes for over 3 hours, but I didn’t even notice when I watched it last night for the first time. I was really drawn in – and it’s the first movie that I’ve cried at for a while. The only qualm I had is Leo DiCaprio’s death at the end. They had him survive so far, why did they have to kill him off?

                    2. bottomlesscoffee007

                      Awe Rue, it’s because you’re a girl. All I know is it took 30 minutes in to hit the iceberg and like 10 hours for the movie to end.

                    1. bottomlesscoffee007

                      It’s a solid flick and bale is a kickass actor. Batman, Patrick Bateman, Terminator Salvation, the Fighter, American Hustle, Reign of Fire.

                    2. Marleen

                      I found The Fighter depressing. American Hustle was better. I enjoyed Terminator Salvation… and, of course, Batman

                    3. Christian Bale is a great and talent actor. Always a pleasure to watch. Like Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, etc.

      The chocolate milk ban hasn’t been put into effect yet, or even voted on from what I understand. I just can’t believe someone proposed it.

  2. I grew up going to school with full fat milk, chocolate milk was a treat. No meatless anything, we had fat, grease and there was no such thing as nut free food for anyone with allergies because we would eat what we were fed. I never knew of any kids growing up with any food allergies, again because we ate what our parents made us eat. God forbid I threw a tantrum if I didn’t want to eat what my mom made for dinner. I’d get the “taste slapped out of my mouth” as she use to say. Chocolate milk is awesome and as mentioned a treat for me as a kid in school. This is ridiculous! 😡

    1. bottomlesscoffee007

      As a lifetime “husky” man, I refuse to go without my chocolate milk! If I cannot do it, then I cannot expect a child to go without as well!

  3. Ok, so personally, I can’t have chocolate milk, because it makes me ill, and it may not be the healthiest thing to drink, but still, why get rid of it? They’re reasoning is stupid. They are banning all these foods and drinks – it’s ridiculous!!!

      1. The first half is a sweet romance (with an admittedly attractive lead couple). The second half, however (the main reason I enjoy it) is one of the best and most tense (and intense) survival thrillers I’ve ever seen – not to mention a very sobering, emotion, tear-inducing one.

              1. R for “High impact violence, blood and gore”.
                Australia’s rating system is more lenient (and more efficient) than the American one; the vast majority of films rated R in America, here get M (our equivalent of PG-13) or MA15+ (no American equivalent; between M and R). Unlike in America, when a film gets R in Australia… it has to REALLY deserve it!

  4. Okay, Bottomless, I’ve been out sick, so please catch me up! What’s wrong with chocolate milk, again? I mean, what are they saying is wrong with chocolate milk? I know you don’t think anything’s wrong with it and I sure as hell don’t. So I’m interested in why this travesty to deprive children from one of life’s simple pleasures that I thought most of us could agree is yummy and good for you…unless you’re allergic to chocolate and/or milk…is in the works. I mean if a child can’t drink it for those reasons or others, okay, provide other choices, but don’t take it away from everyone else, please. I am weeping! Mona

      Mona, you see, obesity is the latest “epidemic” that must be starved out! So, now children are not even safe, from the militant pseudo medical paranoia that has gripped the west, tighter than a virgin hooker.

      1. I just read a blogger who wrote about how she used to walk to everything when she was a kid. So did I. Isn’t there a lot of walking in NYC? I may be showing my ass, but that’s how they portray it on TV. I’ve only been there once and that was before 9/11. Sooo…when you walk all the time, doesn’t that help counteract obesity? Damn, how much chocolate milk is being consumed?!!!! I just don’t think chocolate milk’s the issue. Silly me, though, what do I know! Thanks for the heads up, BCC! Mona

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          Mona, yes walking everywhere, riding bikes, etc. I don’t think parents want their kids cutting the grass anymore or shoveling snow, or raking the leaves. Kids used to play outside as well.

          Perhaps a “safer” more “monitored” world has led to more obesity than anything else.
