We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Do we all understand that this describes the literal and precise fulfillment of the prophetic forecast contained in Daniel 9:24-27? If not, I suggest a reading of Anderson, Sir Robert; "The Coming Prince: or, the Seventy Weeks of Daniel." (London: James Nisbett and Co., 1915.) if you can find it. Sir Robert literally "does the math" on the prophetic timetable set forth by the prophet Daniel, and finds that the Triumphal Entry occurred on the very day he foretold.
I was talking to my two grandchildren, 7 and 6, about palm sunday(longest mass), the people put palms down and crowded the streets to welcome him, kids were fascinated....then I told them a few days later they killed him.......what a stunner! I'm 72, a catholic, and this still stuns me.
