    Trying to look at it in a way that gives her every benefit of the doubt, she is a kid and may not have known about the safe delivery law.

    Also innocent until proven guilty… It sounds as if she is still living with relatives. The safe delivery law only applies to the mother; no one else could use it to remove the baby from the house. Could someone else have gotten rid of the baby in the house? No, she would have realized her kid was missing and been asking for help…

    It does sound as if she is the guilty party but we should wait to see if more information comes out that could change that perception. If guilty, that’s one girl who won’t be highly rated as future wife and mother material. The internet is forever and this will follow her for the rest of her life.

    Atheists should not have any say over what goes on in a church they don’t want to be part of worshiping a God they don’t believe in. They have the freedom not to go to church. If they don’t like what is said there, they can leave anytime.

    Atheists seem to think that the only people allowed to speak publicly about what they think/believe, or act on their beliefs are themselves. Anyone else who acts in accordance with their beliefs is suspect or criminal. Is that equality under the law?

    Was it a salty cake, or very tart lemon?
    A baker under duress may make any sort of mistake, I suppose. He may have to bake for them or else. No one promised that they would like it, right? That would be unprofessional, and rude. Demanding service from someone who does not want to give it to you seems rude and unprofessional too – unless you are a gangster with a protection racket.

    Yeah, I know the history. People are claiming it’s like the civil rights movement. The fact is that there are alternatives today. Don’t like the service at ___, try *** down the street. Plenty of LGBT supporters or people who just don’t care. Your money spends as well as anyone else’s.

    Going all intimidation on people who don’t want to deal with you isn’t cool. Dr. King’s people were about peaceful resistance, not intimidation. It’s not really the same.

    They are not trying to be a “family” place where little sirens go off at several of the tables and kids fight with their siblings. If your kid is well behaved, fine. If you have a baby it’s not the best choice. They don’t have to cater to little kids.

    They are aiming at a more adult crowd, people who want to enjoy their meal in peace. If they miss the business of parents with little kids, then they may alter their policy. If the policy attracts the people they have chosen as their target market, they may do fine without you. It’s a free country and it’s his business.

    Why do the leftists want to copy ideas that have failed elsewhere? Not simply ideas that are new and untried, not tried and worked well somewhere else, but tried and failed badly. Why do they insist that it is a good idea… a great idea… to copy failure?

    They insist that America is not exceptional, but believe that ideas that have failed repeatedly in each country that has tried them will be made to work here, by them. They are smarter than all the smart people in each country that has gone down the road they claim is the solution to all our problems.

    I think America will stop being exceptional only when we stop trying to MAKE our country exceptional; I don’t know why they gave up on that though.

    The Russians did a paper on American media that I want to get an English translation of. They were looking at the patterns that indicate centralized control of the media. They included all the networks, including Fox. The networks follow the same stories. Different channels may each have their own spin but the news cycles match up and everyone is herded in the same direction covering most of the same stories.

    The Russians have enough experience with state controlled media to know what to look for. The report was in Russian, not secret but not intended for release outside of the country. The Russians were looking at something and talking about it among themselves, not with us. I’d like to know what else it said, wouldn’t you?

    The dog was correct that the officer was a threat. The dog is dead which proves the point.

    Seems as if it could be made to backfire on them. “Why” is the obvious question to ask. When they try to play the race card, simply point out that being black is not an impeachable offense. Republican leaders are on record (video available) saying impeachment is not being considered.

    Why is impeachment being considered, even as a talking point by the administration? Why is the White House coming out publicly with the idea?
    Are they trying to get ahead of the news cycle and control the spin because he did something impeachable?
    What has he done that an impeachment case could be built on?

    Ask, and keep asking.

    A version of airborne Ebola was discovered some years ago at a facility on the outskirts of DC. They had primates in quarantine after entering the country which were getting sick and dying. Someone contacted a friend at… I want to say Ft. Detrick, but I don’t remember right now… they imaged the virus and found the famous shepard’s crook. It was airborne and later DNA analysis revealed a tiny mutation.

    The amazing thing was that this version of Ebola was not transmissible to humans. The facility was shut down and the animals were euthanized and examined, during which time one of the researchers had a lab accident involving direct blood exposure. He was placed in a special quarantine while they waited for symptoms to appear but he remained healthy.

    There is a book The Hot Zone which details the entire incident. It’s not new, I had a paperback version several years ago. The brief write up on Amazon mentions that the usual death rate for Ebola is about 90%, and looking at the numbers for this outbreak it seems closer to 60%. That means that close to 40% of those infected are surviving.

    Mutating into an airborne form may or may not retain it’s lethality. Something transmissible like the flu with horror movie symptoms and a one in 5 to one in 3 death rate would be beyond anything we have seen outside of history books on the black plague. The usual death rate for Ebola is far higher – 9 out of 10.

    With regard to him taking some of the kids into his own home, current law says that when the kids families show up THEY are in charge. As they are his wards he is still on the hook financially but the kid’s parents have rights. They may be in charge, but he has the bills. Ask if he is ok with that, too.

    Also, is he legally adopting any of these kids himself, taking one or two into his own home (and will he take in any of their relatives who follow them)? Kids need families, not bureaucracies. Why does he feel that he can volunteer other people? Is this another form of legislating or regulating social activity from the top down?

    If he plays dumb about regulation of social activity:

    1. Ask if he saw the website giving tips on how to use Thanksgiving dinner to pitch Obamacare to family and friends.

    2. Then ask if he understands the difference between a legal contract and a social ritual. Point out that marriage is both, but the two are not entwined in other countries. Follow with a question on why who you love is a national issue instead of a local one. Indeed, why should the issue be decided by politicians instead of by society?

    3. Continuing on a related subject, why does he think the government has authority to regulate ANY church sacraments?

    4. “Going on a bit of a tangent before returning to the original subject”, ask “where in the constitution is the federal government given authority to make decisions regarding marriage(s)? Surely it is not one of the enumerated powers and would fall under things which the sates or the citizens have authority over. Can he show you the page in this copy of the constitution? ”

    Can you think of any other good examples of government interfering in social interactions to ping him with

    Amen

    We didn’t think of it until you said it. You’re right and that this information is missing from the Blaze is perhaps unsettling.

    We offer our prayers for the families. Lord bring these innocent children home in your embrace.

    Then bring the hammer of justice down on those who would do such evil. Yes, we said evil. Call it what it is. Say it by it’s name, Evil.

    LIKE LOL!

    I heard a story at school once from a girl who had a pet snake. The family put up a couple of notes warning people about their pet, one by the front door and the other on the coffee table. She was across the street with a friend when they spotted someone breaking in. (They wanted to call 911 but both of them wanted to watch too… Pre-cellphone era.) They saw him find the second note in the living room and head for the nearest window to exit the house. The python was warming himself in the sun on the curtain rod and fell on him as he left.

    How would you react if you had in good faith paid rent on a property and signed a lease only to be told that the person who rented the property to you did not have authority to do so, and the actual owner wanted his house back?

    I think you would be shocked and feel that you had been ripped off. You would also want some time to verify the information, sort out where you would move your family to, and sue the *** *** out of the @$$#0!3 who rented the house to you.

    You would be willing, even eager to show documents that prove that you did not just move in while the owner was out, but thought you had a contractual right to move in. Having made payments in the 4 digit range, you could be cash strapped for a while and need time to get the money to make alternate arrangements.

    In short, you could be behaving pretty much the way the renters are if you were in the same situation. Do you have a warped victim mentality? Don’t do to others what you don’t want them to do to you and don’t be too harsh on someone who is acting much as you would (could) in their place.

    As to blaming someone for making a quick decision on renting a property, I’m not sure I agree. Is there a rule that says how long you have to wait before signing a lease after you see a property that you want? What is it?

    BrutalTruth and objectivetruth made better points below.

    Myrifle-

    The Aztecs had the Peanut Butter first, but Carver had 99 other uses for Peanuts including Nitroglycerin and plastics. Wiki much?

    Good one. That works too.

    T- shirt never made

    Picture of BinLadin with this text:

    Che Guevara Afghan style
    – Still loving it?

    On the back in bold print:
    Respect only those worthy of it.

    In smaller print a long list covering the rest of the back:
    Washington, Ben Franklin, Frederick Douglass, George Washington Carver, Clara Barton, Dr. King, Mahatma Gandhi, Jesus…

    I’d buy a couple.

    RANGER1965 in reference to your comment:
    “So even if the administration is attempting to punish Israel, their “stated” reasoning for stopping flights is hard to counter.”

    We didn’t handle things this way when the straits of hormuz were mined; we put out an advisory that the strait had been mined. The insurance carriers told people that the second they went into the strait their insurance would be canceled, they would pull their bond. No ships went in and risked loosing their insurance just before hitting a mine.

    Such things have happened before and will again. The administration has always had the power to do this, but as a general rule they don’t. They can get the same effect without being this heavy handed. The administration is sending a signal about who they really support – or don’t.

    Their stated reason does not cover the reason for their deviation from standard practice.
