Where liberals and social conservatives agree

Workout notes: high 40’s; ran to Bradley park and down the hill; the lower loop in 10:06 (can’t quite get under 10), then 5 x Dog Park hill, 1 x upper Bradley Park hill and back; about 10K worth of running. I ran the hills hard enough to have to walk/shuffle the recoveries.

Weights: very little rest; circuits: pull ups, pull downs (Machine), rows, military press machine: 10 x 130 pull downs, 10 x 110 rows, 10 x 90 (each arm) military, 10, 10, 5, 5 pull ups
then rotator cuff, 10 pull ups, 2 sets of 10 x 70 dumbbell bench, 2 sets of 5 pull ups, 10 x 135 incline.

This routine took just under 40 minutes.

Well, you have conservatives (Louie Gohmert) and liberals complaining because religions are attacked for believing …dumb things?

Uh, sorry, saying that idea X has no merit and, in fact, is dumb…doesn’t make one a bigot even if you think that it does.

Here is Numbers 22: 21-39

Balaam’s Donkey
21 Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and went with the Moabite officials. 22 But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the Lord stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat it to get it back on the road.

24 Then the angel of the Lord stood in a narrow path through the vineyards, with walls on both sides. 25 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it pressed close to the wall, crushing Balaam’s foot against it. So he beat the donkey again.

26 Then the angel of the Lord moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. 27 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff. 28 Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?”

29 Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.”

30 The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?”

“No,” he said.

31 Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown.

So, you expect us to believe that there were talking donkeys that can see supernatural beings?🙂
