    I'm with StillBallin. I don't know what you're asking.

    Yep, he needs to be more specific.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Interesting that everyone calls God a different thing, but God is only one. As a result, many people are likely mistaken about what God is. The better question would then probably be what people pray for or if they pray at all.

    God acknowledges the existence of other gods.

    Good question and point.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I will say I have a belief system, but it's not traditional at all, and leaves many questions unanswered. It's more a way of being, than a way of believing, and leaves room for doubt, while at the time being a wonderful basis for faith.

    I think the question is..Do you believe in the Christian form of God?

    You're likely right.

    In Navys world....you do not believe in God.

    I personally, accept I do not know....but want to.

    I have no issue with anyone's version of "That which Is"...but, I do have a problem with people telling me I am wrong for no reason that makes sense to me.

    I can sometimes feel there is something else, however, anyone that tries to tell me they already know....better have convincing proof.

    A book is not proof, and faith seems to be nothing but horse blinders.

    Fortunately, I can live in my own world, and be content with it. I easily accept that there is no proof. I can easily accept that I could be wrong. The way I see it, whatever you believe works for you, and when the end of life comes, belief flies out the window, and whatever is, is. I can accept whatever is.
