  3. Emeasoba George:

    Ungratefulness is a habitual act of being unappreciative or unthankful for something done for oneself or for someone else. Have you been ungrateful or grateful all the while? However, you should be grateful to everyone for everything. But most importantly, you ought to be more grateful to God (Almighty) from whom all blessings flow. Moreover, every good and perfect thing you have at your possession now came from him (James 1:17). Although, he gave them to you through humans. Nevertheless, regardless of any intermediary involved. You've got to be grateful to him (God). For, without him in your life, work, career, business and what have you? You cannot and will never be successful. So come on, be grateful to God at all times. Because, it pays to be grateful. -Emeasoba George

  4. White House counsel Pat Cipollone:

    Its getting late, i would ask you, respectfully, if we could simply start, maybe tomorrow we can start -- and they can make their argument, and they can, I guess, make a case that they once called overwhelming. Well see... Seriously, can we please start ? OOPS ? Joe Biden TEAM TOUTS UKRAINE ACTIVIST WHO CALLED HUNTER BIDENS ACTIONS VERY BAD As Democrats amendments were summarily shot down, reports emerged that some Democrats were privately considering something of a compromise : calling for the testimony of Hunter Biden in exchange for the appearance of some key administration officials. Bidenobtained a lucrative board role with a Ukrainian company while Joe Biden father, Joe Biden, was overseeing Ukrainian policy as vice president. President Trump had asked in President Trump now-infamous July 25 call with Ukraines president for a look into Joe Bidens admitted pressure campaignto have Ukraines top prosecutor fired. Senate Republicans have sought to portray Trumps push for a probe as a legitimate request given the Bidens dealings in Ukraine, while Democrats have alleged that senior administration officials would testify that the administration withheld military aid to Ukraine in order to secure a politically motivated probe. Mike Mulvaney, for example, has publicly argued that there is nothing wrong with tying financial assistance to anti-corruption efforts and other U.S. objectives, even as the administration has denied specifically targeting the Bidens for political purposes. Meanwhile, the barrage of amendments Tuesday night put into doubt whether the senators would have time to meet in a closed session toconverse -- which would be a valuable opportunity, given that the senators were legally barred from having any sustenanceother than water or milk at their desk all day, and could not communicate verbally with one another during the proceedings. The restriction on cellphone possession and oral interaction led some members to pass and flash written notes to each other like students in a classroom, as White House impeachment managers and the presidents legal team traded lengthy legalistic arguments. At one point during the proceedings, former Bill Clinton press secretary and CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart wrote on Cruzs Twitter that Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz could go to.
