We don’t really know Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Maybe we should listen to those who do.

If you haven't seen "Paper Moon", it is a 1973 film about a Bible-selling con man and his likely daughter.

    Despicable.


  2. by Indy! on March 27, 2024 3:50 pm

    Paper Moon destroyed the relationship between Ryan and Tatum O'Neal. Ryan's ego couldn't stand the idea that Tatum was getting all the attention (and Oscar) when he was the star of the movie.

    So this is a standard KJV Bible. Interspersed with text including the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, Pledge of Allegiance, and the lyrics to the chorus to Greenwood’s “God Bless The USA.” Critics saw it as a symbol of Christian nationalism, a right-wing movement that believes the U.S. was founded as a Christian nation.

    Trump is assisting promoting Lee Greenwood's 'God Bless The USA Bible': What to know about the book and its long journey. Greenwood — the Nashville area country musician whose hit song “God Bless the USA” inspired the Bible with a similar namesake — has long been allies with Trump and other prominent Republicans, many of whom are featured in promotional material for the “God Bless The USA Bible.” But that reputational clout in conservative circles hasn’t necessarily translated to business success in the past, largely due to a major change in the book’s publishing plan.

    So you can like it or not. I find it funny that the one that should be LEAST caring about this is the one that is apparently the most butt-hurt. I don't get it that our local atheist is the one telling everyone else what to believe.

    So it's actually called "God Bless The USA Bible"? And it tries to make the case that the USA was founded on Christianity? What religion did they make Jesus in this one? 🤔



  6. by Curt_Anderson on March 27, 2024 7:15 pm
    Indy, I like your image-conscious Jesus art.

    Supposedly a past governor of Texas once said something to the effect if English was good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me, in opposing Spanish be spoken.

    Curt- he's actually assisting Lee Greenwood in making money for himself. Not trumpster. That's the entire subject of my post. I knew you wouldn't get it though, with your hatred. That's the only thing you can see. I'm just happy my life doesn't include that hatred of anyone, and I can actually choose happiness in my life.

    This particular Bible may not be for me, but I don't feel I have to mock people that would want this just to make me feel better about myself by putting other people down. And Greenwood's been a good guy for a long time. Kind of a one-hit wonder, but he spends a lot donating his time and money for folks less fortunate than he is.

    Are you suggesting that Trump isn't taking a generous percentage of every $59.95 Bible sold? I don't believe that for a nanosecond.


  9. by Indy! on March 27, 2024 8:47 pm

    Thanks Curt! 👍



  10. by oldedude on March 27, 2024 8:56 pm
    According to Greenwood, that's correct.


  11. by Curt_Anderson on March 27, 2024 9:14 pm
    OD,
    Fortune magazine also doesn't believe that Trump isn't taking a cut from the Bible sales. Greenwood could be technically correct. The Bible moolah might not go directly to Trump but some entity Trump controls or it's a licensing deal like Fortune suggests.

    The Bible’s website states the product “is not political and has nothing to do with any political campaign.”

    “GodBlessTheUSABible.com is not owned, managed or controlled by Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization, CIC Ventures LLC or any of their respective principals or affiliates,” it says.

    Instead, it says, “GodBlessTheUSABible.com uses Donald J. Trump’s name, likeness and image under paid license from CIC Ventures LLC, which license may be terminated or revoked according to its terms.”

    CIC Ventures LLC, a company that Trump reported owning in his 2023 financial disclosure, has a similar arrangement with 45Footwear, which also says it uses Trump’s “name, likeness and image under paid license from CIC Ventures LLC, which license may be terminated or revoked according to its terms.”

    A Trump spokesperson and God Bless the USA Bible did not immediately respond to questions about how much Trump was paid for the licensing deal or stands to make from each book sale.

    I find it really interesting that you would manufacture a conspiracy theory of trumpster making a couple of bucks (literally) on a Bible, when he is down several million (if he is). That makes no sense to me considering he's part of a multi- million global company.

    You might want to take off the tin foil hat.

    I prefer a DOJ that doesn't persecute the primary political opponent of the sitting President.

    Gang,

    I'll repeat. AGAIN.

    pb doesn't buy into the America is a Christian National" thinking. Many MAGAs do. I suspect that Trump actually does... according to his own notions of what Christianity and America are.

    But,...

    AGAIN!

    The people on SS who push the Christian America doctrine on SS...

    ...according to their own notions of what "Christianity" and America are...?

    "I prefer a DOJ that doesn't persecute the primary political opponent of the sitting President." ---HtS

    Don't blame the DOJ for Trump's legal issues. If he doesn't have the time, he shouldn't have done the crime(s). Trump is facing civil and criminal trials in state courts; nothing to do with the DOJ. Some of his trials were put on hold as he invoked his presidential right not to be prosecuted while he was in office. He attempted to corruptly stay in office so he could continue to have presidential immunity.

    Running for president is not supposed to be a license to break laws and get out of jail free card. Even ex-presidents are supposed to return classified documents when asked.

    OD,
    I am not starting a conspiracy. I simply don't believe that Trump suddenly turned altruistic and isn't getting a percentage of sales.

    This is a man to whom absolutely nothing is sacred.

    "Curt- he's actually assisting Lee Greenwood in making money for himself. Not trumpster." -olde dude


    In a pig's eye Trump isn't making anything off this. If Trump isn't getting at least 75% 95% of the profits off this scam, I'd be flabbergasted. He does nothing unless it benefits him personally somehow.



  18. by Indy! on March 28, 2024 10:06 am

    Pondy is correct. There are absolutely ZERO examples of Trump doing something for someone else without getting paid for it. It's hilarious how hard the GOP works trying to convince others this con man is not a con man. He's so obvious it's almost like he's doing a comic take on con men just to see how long the ignorant will buy it.

    I do and, apparently, almost everyone not practicing deranged TrumpHate joins me, based on polling.

    Not To Be Outdone By Trump, Biden Releases Own Version Of The Quran

    "Just in time for Ramadan!" exclaimed Biden, holding up a copy fresh off the printing press. "Allahu, uh, the thing!"

    According to sources, the new Quran will come with a copy of the Hamas charter as well as a list of President Biden's favorite Arabic proverbs.

    "Back when I was a kid, I was literally raised in mosques! I was always hanging out with the Imams -- not a joke," said Biden. "Muslim Joe, that's what they used to call me back in Scranton. Trump thinks he's such a hotshot with his Bible, wait until you see the 'Allahu Joe Biden' Quran, the Arabs are going to go crazy for this."

    Peebs... The Biden truth only hurts Joe's crowd. The Trump truth only hurts Trumpers. As I said - you WILL be pulling the Trump lever (again) next November.

    Noop, buddy. I'll vote for an alternative party candidate... unless Tulsi is Veep.

    If either Trump or that "dithering and diminished" Doddering Old Fool win, I'll be rootin for the Flatulent Fool... for the laughs.

    Indy. You realize that "Paper Moon" has absolutely NOTHING to do with this thread, right? I know this is usual for you, but again. get off the weed and 'schrooms. enough to be somewhat "intelligent" about your answer.

    "If you haven't seen "Paper Moon", it is a 1973 film about a Bible-selling con man and his likely daughter. "


    But rather than make it personal like you, OD - I'll just leave it there... you're wrong as usual.

    So if Trump picks Tulsi as his VP, Hate will vote for him. Just as we've said all along he fully intends to and will.

    He'll just come up with a different reason for having to vote for him if Tulsi isn't his VP is all. If he even bothers giving us one.

    "There are absolutely ZERO examples of Trump doing something for someone else without getting paid for it." -Indy!

    Well, there was that charity he set up that time to help those poor veterans. He wasn't making anything off of that... That was pretty selfless of him...


    Wasn't it.......?








    Trump Admits Misusing Charity Funds, Settles Lawsuit Against Trump Foundation That He Said He Wouldn’t Settle

    President Donald Trump must personally pay $2 million in fines because he illegally used his charity to benefit his 2016 candidacy. A state judge in New York delivered the judgment on Thursday afternoon. The judicially-assessed penalty must be paid to a number of nonprofit organizations in the Empire State.

    "If you haven't seen "Paper Moon", it is a 1973 film about a Bible-selling con man and his likely daughter. "

    I did see it. Once. It isn't worth a repeat. It's an inane comparison to this situation, considering you were wrong. As always. You look pretty stupid when All the parties in the case prove you wrong. And you're still grasping at that one piece of straw that's nothing more than juvenile humor to make a stupid point that means nothing in this case.

    And this is the person that a huge amount of deranged and pig-ignorantly gullible morons want to destroy our country.

    And the sheep can't get a "person" that is so deranged and pig-ignorantly gullible morons that don't even understand we have a set of laws that apply to everyone. That includes things like the "legal right of due process," and the "legal right of assumption of innocence until proven guilty, regardless of the moronic and pig-ignorant reasons you 'think' someone is guilty." which is the same pig ignorant application of laws in despot regimes they love so much! Like HAMAS and Qur'anic Law, and Venezuela, Colombia, Russia, and China! They're the one's that don't know that China is a communist country and "ASSume" Russia and China have a bill of "rights." for citizens.🤣

    Y'know, OD. It strikes me that between Covid and the entire Trump phenomenon, from the escalator on, po, and oodles of American progressives, are willing to appear to be unabashed fascists who don't give a friggin, freakin EFFINd@ng about the Constitution and individual liberty... because they are proudly fascist.

    "Of the people, by the people and for the people?" Gotohell!


  36. by oldedude on March 31, 2024 6:59 pm
    It's already starting to show up. First the doctrine of "innocent until proven guilty" that po still doesn't believe in. Then there's that "due process" thingy po doesn't believe in. Then there's that selective enforcement that po never heard of.

    Oh. The "term" "po" is inclusive of the limousine liberals on SS.
