Acts of god are a catchword for "we don't provide coverage."
These are at the whim of the insurer.
“Acts of God are a catchword”???

Three words,“Acts of God” are a catchword?

I would have written it like this,

“Acts of God,” is a catchall phrase meaning, we the insurer, don’t cover these types of claims.

Republican Stupidity help Democrats again ......
Republicans hoped that by filing a lawsuit against President Obama —
a move that is expected to win House endorsement Wednesday —
they would mobilize conservatives eager for a confrontation with the White House.
But so far it appears to be rallying Democrats at least as much as Republicans.
Warning that the lawsuit is just the first step toward impeachment, Democrats have turned the GOP strategy into their own fundraising and motivational tool, flooding supporters with emails in recent weeks.
House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) insisted Tuesday there were “no plans” for impeachment, calling talk of the subject a “scam” designed by Democrats to raise money.
But the specter of the nation’s first black president being accused in the House of “high crimes and misdemeanors” is something Democrats hope will energize core voters, particularly African Americans. That could be important as Democrats look for ways to guarantee a strong turnout of their supporters in the November election.
On Tuesday, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said the party had raised $7.6 million online since Boehner announced the suit in June, including $1 million collected Monday alone after incoming House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), during a network television interview, repeatedly refused to rule out the possibility of impeachment.

Rule by the few, often seen as having self-serving ends.

Aristotle used the term pejoratively for unjust rule by bad men, contrasting oligarchy with rule by an aristocracy.

Most classic oligarchies have resulted when governing elites were recruited exclusively from a ruling class, which tends
to exercise power in its own interest.

Holy embarrassment Batman!

You couldn't try to change this administration's course by appealing to
facts and argument: they rejected facts and argument, on principle.

Most people seem not to understand that when we dealt with the Bush
administration, we were dealing with something unique, and uniquely
dangerous: an administration which was fully committed to an ideology - an
ideology that was entirely self-contained and completely self-referencing.

It was not concerned with facts, evidence, logic and argument.

It was concerned only with its own internal vision of the world, and how that world
should be constructed and how it should operate.

I didn't say you were wrong - I said - "you can't stand being wrong." There is no delineation of truth or fiction - right or wrong. But you can't see it for this, huh? You have to be argumentative in order to justify the stance you take.
Please don't take what I say out of context. If you have a question about my post - ask for clarity - before you think you understand it and have to correct me.
Carry on.
I didn't say you said I was wrong. I said you implied I was wrong.

Then I asked "Which is it?", which implies a request for clarification, which you say you are in favor of.

Here is the difference between your and my philosophies .
You awe at the light, thinking it was god , so you asked it for the answer to all your questions. Satisfied, you went on following the light, never needing anything else.
I saw the light, grabbed it and put it on a stick, so it could illuminate the path before me.
In this way I found the answers, and never needed to ask the light , but used it to my advantage. Satisfied I went on my way never needing anything else.

No.

You needed infinite distance, infinite density, infinite gravity.

All of which are impossible.

I just need regular gravity and distance, etc.

You see the world as phantasm.

I live in the real world.

You live in a mental hologram.

It was clear what he meant. He was just wrong.

That is the time in which you claim the universe became infinite.

You claim the universe is infinite RIGHT NOW, not in some future time.

Do I have to keep explaining your own case for you?

Here's a question for you:

At what point in time does time move from finite to infinite?

I'll give you a hint.

Never.

Forget the pipes.

We have a great pursuit going on. The guy drove like a maniac, with bullet holes through his windshield, then ran down a steep hillside in Malibu. About 40 law enforcement vehicles are there, the guy finally gave up and is lying there but it's hard to get to him. That's the sort of Socal evening news we've come to know and love.

Yes if you sit in the back facing backwards, you can count exactly how far you been.
But if you ever get to drive the ship, you will be seeing where you will get to in the future.
The past time is no more valid than the future time.
It's just a matter of perspective.
