this blog develops the idea that a theory of man in history can be worked out around the theme that man's self expression in culture and society is motivated by the desire to find meaning in man's existence. i proceed by summarizing seminal works that provide insights into the dynamics of this process, with the view that the culmination of this exploration was reached with god's self revelation in jesus. i'll hopefully also explore the developments that followed this event.
It is a good day for a siesta.ReplyDelete
report from GA here- a lot of people either didn't vote or voted Dem to punish the basic republican party for some version of being lying pols, not supporting Trump, and not wanting the same thing again with the "we'll repeal Obamacare" promises. Fool us once, and all that... I haven't heard anyone say Trump cost any votes- even though the RINOs the voters hated are trying to portray it that way. One thing the national media isn't focusing on- there was a third race in the runoff, for PSC seat, and the Republican candidate is ahead in that race by 69,000 votes this morning! Perdue seemed unctuous in all of his ads, and Kelly suffered from her app't by Kemp, who is not popular at all right now in the state.ReplyDelete
A different view from Fulton County, GA. Everyone I know voted early and in person, not trusting Mail-in ballots which many used in November. All but 1 or 2 are Trump voters and all went out and voted for the 3 Republicans. The local polling place was busier than in November, many 1st time voters registering,but still the state vote total is 1/2 million less than in November. More Perdue & Loeffler (? spelling) signs up this time than there were for Trump in the neighborhoods. People not showing up will be given as the reason but first hand observation makes me skeptical about that, it’s a quick soundbite that deflects a look into what happened in November & January. Kemp was popular before November, now he and Raffensperger are done in Georgia unless they change parties but that may only help RaffenspergerDelete
I'm in Fulton County, too. Tons of Dem signs in yards around me, only a few Perdue & Loeffler signs here and there. The excuse that 'people didn't come out' doesn't hold water at all because of the third race, for the PSC seat. The Republican in that race won by more votes than either Dem candidate won by!! There were tens of thousands of Repub's at the polls that didn't vote for Perdue or Loeffler- that's pure protest against the Repub. establishment. I've never seen anyone fall from grace like Kemp has- he was very popular, and since the Nov. election, he's just swan-dived off the cliff. Something's going on with him and Ratsburger...not answering Lin Wood's charges did not help them.Delete
Disagree. Please look county by county. The difference is in metro Atlanta counties not the counties where Trump is extremely popular. Republican voters in metro Atlanta are more in line with the GOP than Trump. Protest votes should have been elsewhere.Delete
With cheating I see it as the election results are a forgone result.ReplyDelete
It will be interesting to see how the total vote counts for the senate races track with the presidential race. I expect there to be Republican drop off. The candidates, after all, were terrible, especially her. On the Dem side, though, they were fired up, knowing that a win, even with two execrable candidates, means total control in DC. Let the games begin!ReplyDelete
Follow-on from a reply above. Both Democrat and Republican dropped by about 1/4 million. Quite odd with the effort the Democrats put in and supposedly Trump voters not showing up.Delete
Bubba McDonald won a state-wide PSC seat runoff, on the same ballot as the Senate races, running as a Republican, by a larger margin than Ossof or Warnock won by. That's your measuring stick! Lot of voters were there to send a message, not to toe the party line. They can't say they all stayed home, when they were there and voted for Bubba!!Delete
I had that open in a tab first thing this morning, but haven't had a chance yet.Delete
We're all crazy, I've no idea why you let us say anything at all here! 😁ReplyDelete
THANK YOU for your efforts Mark, you've been absolutely shredding your keyboard as of late!

Say farewell and job well done to the last Republican President.ReplyDelete
So you might survive a battle wound only to die at the hands of medical care providers who although well-intentioned, their interventions were often quite lethal. High death tolls can also be ascribed to everyday sicknesses and diseases in a time when no antibiotics existed. In total something like 600,000 deaths occurred from all causes, over 2% of the U.S. population at the time! diabetes forumReplyDelete
