      Fair and Reciprocal Tariff bill

      One cannot help but have a wry smile at the acronym for the Fair and Reciprocal Tariff bill. Makes a chap wonder if there's a smutty comedian in charge of naming legislation somewhere in the White House
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      When I saw your thread I had to wonder what it was going to be about. In the UK there was an IT training company called Learning Tree who gave away promotional material during their courses. Their mouse pads promised "Totally Integrated Training Solutions", which always made me wonder if anybody read the proof before printing them.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.
