The radical change that is necessary to shift this paradigm back to peace is for people to wake up to the reality that no matter which puppet is in the White House, the status quo remains unchanged.

I look at is as more of a change for experienced redditors who do use those links, to save them a click. I use them a bit, but maybe they are seldom used.

But yes, good point, this would be introducing more visual clutter. Thanks for the feedback.

can the image dropdowns be smaller by default? by atg in SaidIt

Can you provide a screenshot? The images are only supposed to expand to their full size or the width of the container, whatever is smaller. As in the full image should always be shown unless you drag to resize.

Beware of anyone calling for REVOLUTION. This is precisely what many of the rulers desire. They create social unrest in order to get the people to rise up and beg for government tyranny w/o even realizing what they’re doing. by Jesus in conspiracy

Hhahaa that sounds fun. The approach I have in mind though is following in the footsteps of some religious groups in the US and refusing to invest in war. The old socially responsible investing thing. There are ways to bring it to the individual level.

It does seem absurd, with the historicity of Jesus being well established and all. I've checked out their arguments but they seemed like a lot of cherry picking and weren't very compelling. Like multiple cultures reporting flood events is somehow a debunking for them, when at the same time science is proving that a lot of these floods did happen.

It was cool to learn a bit about other Jesus-like figures though. Someone has to keep the atheists turned off I guess.

Tom Waits - Take Care of All My Children (2006) by d3rr in music

I had to look this one up, I thought for sure it'd be a "traditional" or existing church hymn. Nope, an original.

Oh take care of all my children
don't let them wander and roam
take care of all of my children
for I don't know when I'm comin' back home

you can put all of my possessions here in Jesus' name
nail a sign on the door
bright and early Sunday morning
with my walking cane
I'm going up to see my lord

oh keep them together at the sundown
safe from the devil's hand
you gotta make them a pillow
on the hard ground
I'll be going up to Beaulah land

you can put all of my possessions here in Jesus' name
nail a sign on the door
bright and early Sunday morning
with my walking cane
I'm going up to see my lord

remember you never trust the devil
stay clear of Lucifer's hand
don't let them wander in the meadow
or you'll wind up in the frying pan

you can put all of my possessions here in Jesus' name
nail a sign on the door
bright and early Sunday morning
with my walking cane
I'm going up to see my lord 

I'll be going up to Beaulah land

?? Urban dictionary says

Beaulah is an amazing woman and Beautiful too.Everything about her is magnificent and whatever she does is done so gracefully.She has a big hard is very friendly,but also extremely scarcastic.People always mistakes her as rude but she is just brutally honest and straightforward.No one is more genuine and humble than her.She is simply amazing and a great asset to anyones life. "Who is that perfect girl:" Oh thats my friend Beaulah

Edit: here it is https://saidit.net/wiki/commenting

We likely removed a link to this page that we need to restore.
