    3 are Win 7 Ultimate and the 4th is Home Premium. I have almost decided that I need to format C and reinstall because something may be messed up. All the “normal” boxes are checked, but it just won’t even get close. I don’t understand why I can go from desktop to laptop no problemo, but not the other way. I thought I may have found some wrong entries in my firewall, but that didn’t work either. I’ve even stopped my firewall and it was broke, so I’m figuring that’s not the main problem.( may have a problem later but not if it’s not even running.) I will most likely go with 3rd party software if something doesn’t happen soon. It seems it wouldn’t work either if some port wasn’t open.

    I went to the error logs and found nothing. I purposely tried to RD from my laptop to my desktop and it failed, but there was no entry on the log with the time stamp of 11:30 today. Apparently it’s not even trying to log on.

    Yes, I would be happy with just sharing, but there are so many places to set up special, I like the RD because it's just like being on the home computer. Sharing keeps telling me I'm not allowed, can't get there, blah blah. You can't easily get to the Desktop, certain document and administration folders, ect.

    I was at my wits end, so the next step would be to try 3rd party software, but I really wanted RDP. The knowledge base here is, IMO, greater than Microsoft’s or any of the other blogs that go through all the elementary stuff over and over. Course you guys don’t know what all I’ve tried so I figure there will be some basic stuff thrown out there. I would think if I could get 3 machines going in about 1 min or less, I should be able to copy the same setup on the 4th machine. I’m figuring the “simple” fix will be something the help screens don’t cover, usually software from something else. I’ve watched bunches of Youtubes and they pretty much cover the basics. The Microsoft help boards do pretty much the same. If you Google it, you see many many others have the same problem, but alas, no answer as of yet.

    chuckles to LeoMcNeil
    This seems to be a moot point because as far as I know, there has never been a church lose it's tax status over politics,....never! If I'm not mistaken, David Barton has a website that asks pastors to preach on politics on purpose, and then send the sermon to some official and goad them into investigating them. The organization will provide any legal defense they might incur, but it hasn't been used yet.

    I myself have given a message on Lev 18: 22 to make the point that if we approve sodomy in America, the LAND will be defiled and vomit us out, and God told the Jews if they allowed it, they would lose the land God gave them. Romans 1:32 tells us that we are guilty of sin if we approve of the sin even though we didn't commit the sin. I thought it might make the pastor nervous, but apparently he had no problem with it. Our whole revolution was preached from the early American church and many pastors fought in the war. To make some subjects off limits is to limit God and I don't think you can do that. I would welcome an investigation because it would inevitably be stopped by the courts.

    It would also be a nightmare for Islam. Can you imagine a Christian church getting sanctioned for preaching against abortion and sodomy, and a Mosque getting away with preaching the assault on women, or the stoning of sinners? How about the overthrow of the government? Installing Sharia Law? Is Islam more "tolerant" of sodomy?

    If it's in the book, it's in the book and I will preach on it.

    chuckles to Opinionated Blowhard
    Don't get all worked up over one statement in the news. Cruz is my Senator and if you follow him at all, you will see he has ALL the right answers.( at least so far) He believes lower taxes for all is more stimulative than counterfeiting in the Fed. He also believes in de-regulation as much as is practical. You have already seen that he doesn't back down, no matter where the pressure comes from. There are many youtube vids of him speaking on policy that won't take him out of context with creative editing, or you just might go to a rally in person to really get a "thrill up your leg".

    As it is right now, Cruz is my guy. He could get all screwed up about immigration or some other topic, but for right now, after all I've heard and read, he's the real deal. I can't say that about some of the others. Rubio's has screwed the pooch on immigration and Christy never had a chance anyway. I don't think a northern liberal will win in the south EVER. I think Romney would have been OK, but from Mass, Mormon, Michigan,........too much baggage for Texas and Tennessee.

    If you pay close attention, the candidates that scare libs the most are the ones they destroy,....ergo Sarah Palin. Since Cruz made the scene, he has a big target on his back. As a conservative wanting to repopulate the Republican Party with Constitutional Conservatives, Cruz fills in all the blanks. I have several candidates that have pleasing points, but Cruz is the perfect one so far. Almost anyone the establishment backs is a non starter for me.

    I've never understood why Jews do this. Evangelicals will plainly tell you they support Israel and Atheists will be the ones spitting on Jews for defending themselves against Hamas. They CONSISTENTLY vote for Dems that HATE JEWS. The Dems are the ones on TV saying we need to cut ties with Israel. Any evangelical will tell you God blesses those that bless Israel and we have been adopted into the family of God. If you are a Christian and hate Jews, you hate God's family and your own brothers.

    I've heard of self hating Jews all my life, but I keep praying for them. They are almost all against the Second Amendment, for abortion, and gay marriage. For me, being Jewish is more of a racial term than a religious one. Only Orthodox Jews remotely follow God's teaching. I can't imagine a Jew rejecting a concealed carry permit. A 10 year old Hamas child has an AK 47.

    chuckles to TexasRepublic

    Just beat me to it by “this much.” I just spoke with a geology major from my daughters college and asked her the very same question. If hydrocarbon is from decomposing organics, how do we have gigantic planets almost completely hydrocarbon with no life? She said that they had discussed that but were still unsure of where all the new oil was coming from. Some oil is several miles deep and it would be difficult for it to migrate that far from where it started. She also admitted that the amount of known oil reserves has been rising faster than anyone could have guessed just a few years ago. Getting a geologist to admit oil could be, ...well, just oil, instead of billions of years worth of rotting plants and animals is like getting them to consider evolution might be wrong. If oil is just a natural product from the earth, we could have a thousand years of it left. It just that we’ve found most of the easy stuff. Finding oil literally miles deep makes it costly to recover along with the danger, but technology has always come through in the past.

    One thing left out of the article is the losses in mainline churches, including the SBC, is the acceptance of gay marriage. There was recently a story about a megga SBC church in California that just dropped out of the SBC due to a pastor changing his mind about homosexuality when his son confessed his. He went to the church and spoke for an hour and the church discussed and voted to keep him and quit the SBC. Go to Youtube and search "How I changed my mind on homosexuality". If you Google "gay Deacons", you will get 2 churches in Texas that have done that in the last few years.

    Everyone already knows what has been happening to the Robes and Incense churches. I wouldn't be all that concerned about falling numbers but more staying out of a church with "Ichabod" over the door.

    I’m not sure you are describing the AOG. That sounds more like the Church of Christ. I’m in a non denominational church right now, but I’m sure most would describe it as some form of AOG and we believe once saved always saved. We believe in salvation through Grace and understand that we all fall short. Church of Christ OTOH, believe you can lose your Salvation and must somehow keep earning it.

    I trade stocks and options for my living and have often wondered how solar stocks were being talked about and recommended almost daily. I would do my DD on a couple and find out they were still inefficient and too costly, just as I had been taught in “the old days”. Even with gubmint subsidy, it still made no sense. Now I see. The gubmint bought all they could make. I knew it couldn’t be anyone that wanted to make a profit. Sooner or later they will run out of gubmint projects and real people will have to buy them and sales will dry up, just as they always have through my 63 years of life.

He can’t tell me how the Senate would ever vote to remove Obama with Dirty Harry at the helm so he just spews some crap I can’t even follow what he’s saying. I at least have read the Constitution and know what it takes to impeach the president and witnessed it under Clinton. He’s probably a 20 something that was crapping his diaper when Monica was pulling up her skivvy’s. This thread was about impeaching Obama wasn’t it?

    I don't know what's up your a$$, but tell me how you would get 2/3 of the Senate to vote to remove Obama with the Dems in control. The House could impeach 14 times and the Senate would NEVER VOTE TO REMOVE!! I don't understand what's so hard about that! If we take the Senate in 2015, maybe, just maybe, we could get it done, but 2/3 is still a big number. There are a few Dems worried about their seat right now, but even if we take 10 seats in 2015, we are still short. At some point, you will still need Feinstein type Dems. Ain't gonna happen. Give me the names of some Dems that would remove the president.

    All of Clinton's "laundry" was displayed and we even had film of Clinton lying under oath and everyone agreed it was perjury. The RINO's in the Senate still refused to impeach.

    That's the point I'm trying to make.

    How many Dems would vote to impeach under Harry Reid? We would need EVERY Repub, and I know there would be too many that don't have the stomach to be called "racist", even if we find out his BC was forged and he took a dead man's SS number. If we wait till the Repubs take the Senate, we still need to get some Dems, as it takes 67 votes to do the deal. Make a list of the Dems that would convict and then look at the RINO's that have NO backbone. Impeachment is a pipe dream. Anyone can be impeached, conviction is the trick.

    ...."House impeaches, the Senate removes."......

    I know that, what's your point? The same result will happen with Obama that happened with Clinton. The Repubs had a bead on the bent one and couldn't pull the trigger. If the House impeaches, the Senate will just ignore or vote it down without discussion and everyone will be called "Racists".

    Even if the Senate is Repub in 2015, the Rino's won't do it. We MUST elect more Tea Party or we might as well leave Harry in charge. I'm not sure people realize just how alone conservatives are these days. Some RINO's even spoke against Tea Party candidates and spoiled their chances so the Dem could keep the seat. This is nothing new. When 85 new Tea party House members took the oath, the yellow boner didn't even give any of them key committee assignments. No respect!

    We must start figuring out the difference between a Republican and a conservative, they definitely aren't the same. Why are we being handed supposed candidates like Christy, Trump, Gary Johnson, Jeb Bush, Romney, et al? Palin, Allen West, and a half dozen others would run circles around these other chumps, but they might follow the Constitution and mess up the gravy train that has been built over decades.

    I wish I had a Facebook page so I could quit Facebook in a huff, but alas, I never made a Facebook page. I didn't see the advantage of letting all my laundry be waving out there in the inter web. I wasn't interested in generating money for Zuckerberg to give to liberals like Obama, Boxer, and Feinstein, homosexuals, abortion, and others.

    Christians need to begin paying attention to whom they give their money to. Whether it's a movie like Noah, or a website like Facebook, we are supporting people that will hand us over to authorities in the last days. If politicians couldn't get millions from atheists, maybe we would stop electing atheists. I had a difficult time with my wife and daughter watching Oprah until she made an anti Christian remark right on her show. If you look at the money these people generate, it has to come from Christians as there are more of us than atheists. The problem is the "lukewarm" Christians that are in name only. When the thought police show up in swat gear, will they take the mark or stand on conviction? I'll bet if about 100,000 Christians fell off Facebook in about a week, Zuckerberg would do the "right thing". I'm sure there are that many churches with Facebook pages.

    If you keep your Facebook page after this, have you already "taken the mark"? If you cringe thinking about trying to live without knowing when your neighbor's dog gets fixed, do you have an idol? If you can't have a conversation without looking down at your phone every 2 minutes, do you have an addiction? Jesus stated that if you don't hate your father, mother, daughter, and son, you have no part with Him. Of course He didn't mean for you to hate them, He was just stating that you MUST put Him first. Is it more important for you to have a Facebook page or commune with God, because I'm pretty sure a choice has been placed in front of you.

    Chinese coal fired plans and US coal fired plants aren’t even the same animal. We have cleaned up most of the real pollutants in coal. CO2 IS NOT a pollutant. In fact, we need it to grow plant life and make O2. We have had CO2 levels 4 times as high as now with colder temps. CO2 is not changing the temps. The Sun and Water vapor affect the Earth’s temp. The Sun has 11-17 year cycles of sunspot activity and that will affect the Earth’s temp. As sunspot activity rises, so will the temps. Ice has been melting for 20k years if you believe the scientists that study the Ice Age. I don’t expect that will stop until the next cycle. People have NO AFFECT an the weather. 3/4 of the Earth is ocean. If land were covered elbow to elbow, we couldn’t affect the weather. Climate change propaganda has spurred some sort of mental illness that won’t allow low information voters to comprehend even basic principles of science to the point they even argue with self evident measurements. If the temp is 75 deg, they will argue that it would have been 74 degrees if we just paid more money to Africa.

    ....." but the homosexual will not.".....True, but the homosexual doesn't understand anything because he is dead. Your job is to live the Christian life and spread the gospel. God will deal with the dead. When God revealed His Spirit to you, you came to life and was able to see, hear, and think. Without the Spirit, people are as dead as an armadillo on the center stripe of the highway. It's not really important what you say to them because God will open the ears of the ones He wants. Your job is to just keep saying it.

    When you get down to the conversation of, "I know you are but what am I?", you should dust off your shoes and move on. Casting pearls before swine does no good. The Holy Spirit is in control of who God calls and who isn't called. Even homosexuals can overcome with Christ as was stated in Corinthians where Paul named some sins and then said "And such were some of you." I don't even argue about being born that way or not, God will deliver anyone from any stronghold. Even Paul complained about a "thorn" in his side but God said His grace was sufficient. We don't really know if the "thorn" was of the flesh or a mental conflict.

    The main job for the Christian is to stop rebelling against God and start agreeing with Him. An active homosexual is in direct conflict with God's Will. If he abstains, he can be saved as well as any Christian in temptation with sin. Many people can't pass a $5 bill on a table without figuring how they are going to get it in their pocket unnoticed. Everyone has their weaknesses, but God, can overcome them for you. If you have the opportunity to speak to a homosexual in a normal voice, perhaps God has prepared his heart to receive what you are saying. You will know within a sentence or 2 if he will receive it. If he refuses, then his blood is not on your hands. Passing someone up, however, could be a mark against you, and if they die and go to hell, their blood could be on your hands.

    We weren't saved to sit in our living rooms and watch TV for the next 30 years. There is a harvest and very few workers. God wants us involved in His Kingdom. Loving a homosexual enough to open your pie hole for Christ is just Christianity 101. It is even possible to be persecuted or killed serving Christ, but we aren't even willing to speak with someone for their own salvation. I know Christians that are hesitant to even speak with their own children saying they can make up their own mind when they are older.

    Amen! I have a ton of stories similar to these, but this one just came to mind. I recently gave a message on a Wed. night service on this very subject. My father in law has had a problem digesting Luke 14:26. He just couldn't get it. He was stuck on the love Jesus taught for one another and missed the meaning of the verses. He was a compromiser. He allowed his children to get away with murder because he loved them. They each have had a tough life and one is even dead. multiple marriages, divorces, alcohol and drugs,....the whole nine yards. He just told me I didn't know how he felt as I wasn't a father yet and I would understand later. My daughter is now 29 years old and doing well. All of my wife's siblings are miserable.

    Jesus made it clear that we are to follow Him FIRST! If you love your child, would you really allow them to fornicate or experiment with Satan's toys just because you can't say no? All children WANT limits. It shows that you love them and care for them. When no one says NO!, they will just put the pedal to the metal and corkscrew into the first mountain available.

    Christians have been conditioned over the years to "not judge" lest ye be judged. That just means we can't judge a soul, but we are to judge sin and flee from it! When a Christian sees open sin, he/she should point it out. We should be able to give the reason it isn't an act of love to allow a person to harm themselves. There are so few people that actually read and practice the Bible today, "real" Christians are kicked to the curb and the world is spinning into the abyss. For me, the reason America has sunk to the level it has is we are obsessed with all the wrong reasons to vote when we should be looking to vote in the most Bible believing Christians we can. Even the Republicans are trying to shut us out by not emphasizing social issues. IMO, if we elected Christians, the other problems would take care of themselves. As in the Bible, when Israel had a bad king, slavery and ruin followed. A Godly king brought blessing and plenty. If you have a chance to see the DVD on Isaiah 9-10 prophesy, do it. It pretty much explains what we have done to ourselves and how are too stiff necked to repent and bring revival to the land. We will have to be crushed under God's punishment to bend out knee to God. These principles are universal from your relationship to your family and friends and to your country and the world. 911 happened in 2001. Sept 2008 was seven years later and the beginning of the economic crisis. Sept 2015 is seven years later. If we haven't repented yet, what will the next "crisis" be? We have had plenty of time, we just haven't. I would imagine Iran will have a nuke or 2 by then. I wonder where they will test them? Is a nuke attack enough to bring us back to God? I fear we will see. Is killing our babies and marrying sodomites that important? Leviticus 18:22 tells us what God will do to a country that accepts sodomy. Is abortion the same as sacrificing to Molech? I don't want to find out. If the church would raise awareness of these things, perhaps we could repent in time. Most churches don't even preach against sodomy anymore. Some have gay deacons and others say why preach to the choir?

    Well, because the choir needs to know what God thinks of it, that's why.

  • You’ve Been Invited To A [Fill In The Blank]: Should You Go?

    Thank you for this article. As we read the comments, we see it is needed to remind us of what is expected of Christians. As an example, A couple of Thanksgivings ago, all of my family wanted to have Thanksgiving in the country,( which means my house), so the plans were made and turkeys were bought. I have a 4 bedroom house and we planned on 17 people. As the plans were being made, my niece was brought up. She had been shacking up with her boyfriend for about 10 years and had 2 children by him. I said they cannot sleep together in my house and the trouble started. It was 100% against me as I was messing up Thanksgiving for everyone with my old outdated ideas. Arguments ensued and I stuck to my guns. I was raising a child myself and told them my daughter is watching us to see if we believe what we teach. My daughter was early teen and experiencing "modern teaching" everywhere, while we were trying to teach her morals from the Bible.

    To make a long story short, they all agreed to my wishes and we had a pleasant Thanksgiving. Lo and behold, about a year later, they got married and were "born again". Their own children started to question their relationship and put pressure on their own parents. Now they are devout Christians that participate in all church activities and feed the poor on Thanksgiving and Christmas, the father is a deacon in his church and my niece teaches Sunday School. Could my "standing my ground" have caused such a thing as this? I don't know, but I'm convinced that by staying firm, God blessed me and them. The rest of the arguing members now seem to feel as I do for some reason.

    Just by rejecting the traditions of men makes a statement to all that watch. Is it so bad to be known as the religious zealot that is a stick in the mud for Christ? My relationship is with Christ. The Word tells us we must "hate" our mother and father, our sons and daughters. Does it really mean "hate"? No, it just means Jesus comes first. You can't be double minded and follow Christ. You cannot have two masters. You will love the one and hate the other. For those that say "I don't know any homosexuals", #1,....that a lie, and #2 at some point you will have a situation that will cross your beliefs and the world. This poster is just trying to show you what Scripture says you should do if you value your relationship with God. There is no need to be hateful, but you should remain firm. It will undoubtedly be an opportunity to discuss what Jesus wants for our lives in the area of love and the sanctity of marriage.

    If the world loves you, your not doing it right.

    I have 24.5 and it still shows FF. There was a fix listed here awhile back, but I wasn’t smart enough to do it.

    I can’t figger out how to get Pale Moon from identifying as Firefox. Even though I dropped FF, it looks like I’m still using it.

  • Magic Johnson: I Will Pray for Donald Sterling

    I think everybody is missing the point of why Sterling was angry. If you had given 2 Bently's and a Ferrari along with an apartment to your squeeze, why would you want pics of her running with other men? It makes you look like you might not be satisfying her. He gave her freedom to do what she wanted, but just don't flaunt it. If he had been prejudiced, don't you think he would have peppered a couple of "N" words in the conversation? She seemed to prefer 7 foot monsters so the inference was he wasn't reaching the right spots. As far as "Magic" Johnson, I wouldn't want AID's brought home to me either.

    I think it had more to do with his virility than bigotry. If you pay the money, you should get what you pay for, IMO. If she didn't want the money, just leave and do what you want, but don't try to have it both ways. I think his biggest problem was he didn't get a high class hooker like most billionaires get. If you're a gold digger and land a billionaire, shouldn't she have done whatever it took to keep him? Ar we going to pretend it was true love?

    Owning a basketball team with a black coach just doesn't really scream "racist" to me. If you peel back a layer or two, we may get to a plan for Oprah and Magic buying the team. There is something more than racism here IMO.

  • Is There A Biblical Answer To Poverty?

    The Bible is a guide from God On what God wants HIS PEOPLE TO DO. It is NOT a guide for governments. If a hungry person asks for food, He expects His church to do something. DO NOT point the way to the food stamp office and think you are pleasing God. God's people know the ones that get drunk and sleep too long to work a job versus the truly handicapped that need care. The Bible says if you don't work you don't eat, but there is nothing to keep you from helping someone with no legs. The government somehow believes they can have a law that treats the dunk dope head the same as a bedridden widow.

    There is NO INSTRUCTION for how Caesar was to govern his kingdom. The main references there would be "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's", and for us to submit to the authorities on the principle that if God was punishing His people He would give them a poor leader. The whole Bible is for the governance of God's children's lives, not how to govern a nation. If we elect Godly leaders, they will be led by God. This is why the Founders said we should prefer Christian leaders. Churches and individual believers should take care of the needy and you would find there would be less "needy".

    If a politician decides to steal my money to dole out to a special interest group, that is not a Biblical principle. What we have done is allow the substitution of the state for God and God has been pushed to the side. Paying taxes and giving food stamps doesn't buy you any Treasure in Heaven.
