Feel free to use our main activity feed to help your browse what some Muggers are up to right now and peruse to your heart's content.

After you are logged in, you'll be able to take advantage of our Q&A, join/create special-interest groups, talk with other Muggers via our live chat, and a whole lot of other stuff.

    We can only hope and pray that the left goes silent. Lord knows they've been numb and dumb for sixty years now. That would in fact be real progress.

    What I admire hugely are those couples whose politics are the opposite but handle the relationship calmly and thoughtfully. We are mostly homogenous in our politics. One of us is not and so we just don't discuss politics in his presence. No need to. Discu...  more

    If your phone is a landline, the static is caused by an intermittent faulty connection. If it is a mobile phone it could be your phone, the other caller's phone or anything in between.

    I think that those that voted for him had high expectations of him. Even those that didn't vote for him seem to not be pleased with some of his actions and decisions. Don't really know that very many when they think of him, think Christian role model.

    officegirl replied to The purpose of an "entertainer" is to entertain. They lie all the time to please and delight. The purpose of a journalist?:
    No don't see that entertainers necessarily have to lie to please and delight. A journalist works in print media and sometimes they are news commentators.  They can try to be entertaining or not.  They can also lie or not.

    I didn't really get that straight, did I? If you expect higher standards of Christians, then that means your own standards must be lower. IOW a non-Christian judging a Christian is self-contradictory. deprecatory.
