Women are the property of their husbands. Before I go further, not something I believe. But many others do.
This topic begins with Judge Jackson’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. A Senator ask the Judge to define “woman.” Jackson adroitly passed the question off. She was not going to be dragged into GOP culture wars.
Marjorie Taylor Greene next.
One tough lady. Mentally sick, also. I was surprised what she recently said regarding women: “They are weak and the property of their husbands.” Later she added again: “We are the weaker sex.”
Surprising! This woman believing women the property of husbands, women inferior to their husbands.
Interestingly the Bible supports Greene more than 100 times. A few references follow.
“I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.” 1 Timothy 2:12
“Wives submit to your husband’s, as is fitting in the Lord.” Colossians 3:18
“Wives submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church…..Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.” Ephessians 5:22-24
“But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, then head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:3
The following Biblical reference has nothing to do with the issue at hand. However, it has application in many households today: “It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.” Proverbs 21:9
Local newspapers are constantly reporting re the Florida housing crisis. Especially the one existing in the Keys. One recent article was titled: Housing Affordability Crisis.
A thrust of the article were the unprecedented rent increases – up to 30 percent in a year.
Drug parties in Keys waters. Not actually parties. More like a drug pickup failed or the Coast Guard was catching up and the goods had to be thrown overboard.
This past week just short of 70 pounds of drugs washed upon Keys shores. Nineteen pounds of cocaine, 49 pounds of marijuana. Estimated value $193,000.
Justice Breyer will soon leave the Supreme Court. He recently noted the dissent among its members. The Court not jambalaya.
Justice Breyer’s admonition: Justices should leave their politics at the door when they put on their robes.
Vanity Fair’s Bess Levin reported on a recent Trump interview by the Washington Post’s Josh Dowsey. The interview took place at Mar-a-Lago and lasted 45 minutes.
The Washington Post article reported Trump is “still a lying sociopath.”
Among other things, Trump said he regretted he was unable to march with the rioters to the Capitol on January 6: The “Secret Service said I couldn’t go. I would have gone there in a minute.” I question the truthfulness of the statement.
The interview was described as “a dazzling array of bullshit, lies, pathological narcissism, and a clear picture of what it will be like if Trump were reelected in 2024 and return to the White House for a second term, ie. so, so much worse.”
Syracuse University’s Carrier Dome receiving $20 million from the State of New York. The budget item was passed last night by the New York Legislature.
The monies will help complete the next phase of the Dome’s renovations. Items involved include replacement of aluminum benches with an individual seating configuration and the installation of 5G technology throughout the Dome.
There are “special geniuses” in this world.
Take for example Vaughan Smith, age 46. He is a Washington, D.C. carpet cleaner. Scrubs rugs for $20 per hour.
Vaughan speaks 37 languages. Twenty four of them well. He can read and write 8.
Enjoy your Sunday!
