Good evidence? I was literally pointing out that you’re extremely rude to people who ask harmless questions. Even if the ask is in you FAQ you could say it nicer. Theres no need to be so rude all the time. I didn’t intend to start shit, neither was I telling you what to do. I was simply making a point.
You are clearly underestimating the number of pointless, easily answered by google asks Kaitlyn gets a day.
I do get that. But some people come asking for HER advice. Maybe they already searched google and got so many different answers that they wanted to ask someone who already knew the most effective way to do something.
jesus i hate when people are impolite to their followers, like get over yourself
That’s basically all I was trying to say…

Anonymous said: Why do ppl blame Obama for everything? If I were getting blamed for everything I'd mess up too tbh. You'll probably ignore and delete this, but I'm just saying.
Because he is the worst president this country has ever had. That is the truth. He is a lawless man and does not go through the proper protocol that a President should ie Congress. He is allowing our borders to be flooded by illegal immigrants and along with them many diseases when we can barely afford to take care of the people that are living here right now. He does not stand with Israel who has always been a very close ally.
I wonder how people are going to feel when all of these thing wreak havoc on our country, our economy and our people. When and illegal immigrant can take many of the jobs like those your parents have at a much lower rate I wonder how you will feel then.
If they want to come to America do it the way the other immigrants have. I have many Filipino workers who have worked very hard to get their citizen ship the right way. I have written letters so that they could bring their families here and was so happy for them when they became citizens the right way. I can’t wait until he is out of office.
I like what Harry Truman said “The Buck Stops Here!” He took responsibility for what happened while he was in office and didn’t spend his time blaming everyone else. Harry Truman’s famous motto, “the buck stops here” — which was emblazoned on a thirteen-inch sign that sat on his Oval Office desk — is receiving a lot of renewed interest today. Mostly, it’s being used to criticize President Obama’s alleged willingness to allow Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to “take the fall” for the deadly attack on a diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya. Conservatives from Jennifer Rubin, to Sean Hannity, to John McCain, and many others, seem to think that — just as Truman believed — Obama should take responsibility for everything that happens in his government. But “the buck stops here” actually means something different altogether, or at least it did to Truman.
On more than one occasion President Truman referred to the desk sign in public statements. For example, in an address at the National War College on December 19, 1952 Mr. Truman said, “You know, it’s easy for the Monday morning quarterback to say what the coach should have done, after the game is over. But when the decision is up before you — and on my desk I have a motto which says The Buck Stops Here’ — the decision has to be made.” In his farewell address to the American people given in January 1953, President Truman referred to this concept very specifically in asserting that, “The President—whoever he is—has to decide. He can’t pass the buck to anybody. No one else can do the deciding for him. That’s his job.”
So the president’s decisions are his alone to make. That’s very different than the idea that the president must take responsibility for decisions he didn’t even make in the first place. And as Clinton acknowledged, micromanaging the security plans for the nation’s 275 worldwide diplomatic posts isn’t part of the president’s workload.
Mark Adams, the education director of the Harry S. Truman Library Institute, tells us he doesn’t quite get the comparison between the Libya example and Truman’s philosophy. “I don’t see the parallel in the analogy, because that decision may never have made it to President Obama’s desk,” Adams told us. “It may never have gotten that far up the food chain. But, I think with Truman, it’s when that decision does come to him, he’s going to make that decision, and he’s going to stand by it, and he’s not going to pass it on — pass the buck. But the difference would be whether that decision actually reached [Obama] or not, in the modern-day example.”
This doesn’t mean that it would be politically wise for Obama to tell 70 million debate viewers tonight, “Hey, not my fault. Take it up with Hillz.” Regardless of how Truman viewed buck passing, we like to believe that our presidents are in control of pretty much everything that happens on their watch, and when something goes wrong, blaming others just isn’t a very leaderly look.
But it does mean that, if Clinton is the one making decisions for embassy security, then, in the Trumanian sense, the buck really should stop with her. Some might argue otherwise — that Obama should take the blame for the State Department’s failures. But not Truman.
God bless you dear one!!! Maranatha!!! :):):)

Anonymous said: What do you think of the book "Heaven is for real"?
Recent best-selling books and the movie Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo,90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper, and 23 Minutes in Hell by Bill Wiese are raising the question — is God giving people visions of heaven and hell today? Is it possible that God is taking people to heaven and/or hell and then sending them back in order to deliver a message to us? While the popularity of these new books is bringing the concept to the forefront, the over-arching claim is nothing new. Books such asA Divine Revelation of HellandA Divine Revelation of Heavenby Mary Baxter andWe Saw Heavenby Roberts Liardon have been available for years. The key question is — are such claims biblically solid?
First, it is important to note that, of course, Godcouldgive a person a vision of heaven or hell. God gave the apostle Paul just such a vision in2 Corinthians 12:1-6. Isaiah had an amazing experience as recorded in Isaiah chapter 6. Yes, it is possible that God gave Piper, Burpo, Wiese, and others a vision/dream of heaven / hell. Ultimately, only God knows if these claims are true or the result of misperception, exaggeration, or, worst, outright deception. The only way for us to discern is to compare the claimed visions and experiences with the Word of God.
If God were to truly give a person a vision of heaven or hell, one thing we can know for sure is that it would be in 100 percent agreement with His Word. A God-given vision of heaven would in no sense contradict biblical passages such as Revelation chapters 21-22. Further, if God were to truly give multiple people visions of heaven or hell, the God-given visions would in no sense contradict each other. Yes, the visions could be different and could focus on different details, but they would not contradict one another.
As withanybook written byanyauthor, “test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22). If you read these book(s) and/or see the movie(s), do so with a discerning mind. Always compare what the author says and claims with Scripture. Most importantly, never allow someone else’s experience and interpretation of that experience to shape your understanding of Scripture. Scripture must be used to interpret experience, not the other way around. Do not allow any claimed experience of someone else to be the foundation of your faith or walk with God.
While definitely not without significant flaws, overall, we found90 Minutes in Heavenby Don Piper andHeaven is for Realby Todd Burpo to be the more biblically sound of the “I saw heaven” books. Piper and Burpo seem to approach the issue with humility and honesty. Again, though, read with a healthy amount of discernment and a commitment to the Bible as the absolute source of truth. While we do not doubt the honesty of the authors in sharing what they saw and experienced, there is no way to verify the claims or prove that they were from God and not simply very vivid dreams.
When the apostle Paul was “caught up to paradise,” he “heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell” (2 Corinthians 12:4). Similarly, the apostle John (Revelation 10:3-4) and the prophet Daniel (Daniel 8:26;9:24;12:4) were instructed to conceal aspects of the visions they received. It would be very strange for God to have Paul, Daniel, and John withhold aspects of what He revealed to them, only to, 2000+ years later, give even greater visions, along with permission for full disclosure, to people today. It is our contention that these books claiming visions of and trips to heaven and hell should be viewed skeptically and, most importantly, biblically.
God bless you!! Maranatha!!!
