"Are the homeless also God's chosen people?"

Forrest Caricofe


**I spent 3 straight nights in a homeless shelter once. I cannot remember the details 

of each night so I'll tell you what I remember in all of the nights combined. All of the

shelters where in churches in the local community.

When you go to the shelter they must have a vacancy. On that first night they had a 

vacancy and I obtained the approval for a mat for that night. Once you get the 

approval for staying you can keep coming each night unless you missed a night and 

then you have to reapply for a sleeping place.  I do not remember the exact hours 

that you could stay at the shelter. Maybe 7:00 PM to 7:AM. The shelters fed to you a

an evening meal and sometimes a light morning breakfast. 

You could come in to the shelter drunk but could not ....



**I have not jogged for 5 days. I'm promising myself that today is the day I'll start

to jog again.


Fox News - ‎4 hours ago‎

A Senate showdown is set for Thursday as Republicans prepare to go nuclear in 

their push to confirm President Trump's pick for the Supreme Court as Democrats 

escalate their attacks on his selection.

Democrats would filibuster Ruth Bader Ginsburg if President Donald Trump 

nominated her," said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., naming one of the 

more liberal sitting justices. "There is simply no principled reason to oppose this 

exceptional, exceptional Supreme Court nominee."

The confrontation will play out as Democrats and independents try to block 

Gorsuch by denying Republicans the 60 votes needed to proceed to a final vote.

Republicans intend to respond by unilaterally changing Senate precedent to remove 

the 60-vote requirement for Gorsuch and all future Supreme Court nominees, 

reducing it to a simple majority. The maneuver is considered an extreme 

parliamentary move.

All 52 GOP senators are expected to vote to end the filibuster. Four Democratic 

senators will likely join them, which means Republicans are four votes shy of 

confirming Gorsuch outright.

It is not clear when Senate Republicans will deploy the (1) nuclear option, but the 

process will likely begin an hour after the Senate meets."

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

(1)"The nuclear or constitutional option is a parliamentary procedure that allows 

the U.S. Senate to override a rule or precedent by a simple majority of 51 votes, 

instead of by a supermajority of 60 votes. ... The term "nuclear option" is an 

analogy to nuclear weapons being the most extreme option in warfare."

**I'm still waiting patiently for 6 straight days of temperatures above 40° so I can

repair those brown places in the yard with Scott's Repair Mix. From above it looks 

like I'm going to still have to wait a while.
