    This whole business is sad.

    - It is sad that a young man is dead
    - It is sad that, whatever the circumstances, a man killed another man
    - It is sad that over 50% of young men in the USA are growing up in homes without their biological father
    - It is sad that a mother lost her son
    - It is sad that so often those who speak the truth are either ignored or vilified
    - It is sad that so many are redefining truth to fit their own agenda
    - It is sad that so many are using this terrible event as an excuse for lawlessness
    - It is sad that we live in a culture wherein it is no longer acceptable to shame someone who is engaged in bad behavior
    - It is sad that so many of our so-called leaders seem concerned only with how they may benefit politically from events like this
    - It is sad that instead of working toward better understanding between people, we seem to be moving toward ever more polarization and anger
    - It is sad…but there is hope…

    The useful idiots in the USA who support Hamas, Fatah (the PA), Hezbollah, or whoever would scream bloody murder if someone were running up and down their street setting fire to homes and killing people. If someone is running up and down your street creating mayhem, you don’t negotiate with them or try to understand why they are deranged. You stop them by whatever means necessary.

    While I understand the sentiment you are trying to convey, referring to people as animals is not helpful. That is the very thing that Hamas does to incite hatred and violence against Jews and anyone else who does not share their worldview.

    Hamas and others like them are evil and corrupt. Any person with a shred of moral decency wants them to stop or be stopped. But that does not mean they aren’t human beings.

    If you have never lived for months with constant hunger and the fear of imminent violent death there is no possible way to understand what someone in that situation would or would not do when faced with alternatives that are all bad.

    They were arrested because they violated the law by discharging a firearm within the city limits. It seems to me that shooting in built up areas is inherently dangerous. I live in Colorado Springs and judging by some of the clowns I see at informal shooting areas in the National Forest, I wouldn’t want my neighbors shooting in their basements. Whether they will be prosecuted or not is another matter.

    Why not pay a few bucks to join a club and shoot at an approved range?

    Malcolm Gladwell is not a lefty and ad hominem is not an argument. You may not agree with his assessment, but surely he deserves credit for thinking deeply about it.

    My view is that when somebody wants to get their brains beat out to earn a living it is their choice. That aside, the NFL is high priced theater. There is way too much money involved for it to be anything else.

    I don’t care if ex-Nazis invented longer lasting lightbulbs or cured diseases or whatever. If they were suspected of crimes they should have been prosecuted, period.

    That is no answer. If you will not give a straight answer, why should anyone trust you or even engage in discussion?

    What the Qur’an or Hadith says is not the issue. The issue is people thinking they are pleasing God by persecuting and murdering people who disagree with them.

    Question: Is it safer to live as a Muslim in the West or as a Christian in the Middle East?

    And what about American citizen Pastor Saeed Abedini, imprisoned and tortured in Iran for the crime of trying to build an orphanage for girls?

    apparently this (ahem…) gentleman is cut from the same cloth as our beloved president: everything comes down to race. His obvious ignorance and hate is proof that he owes his position to something other than competence, perhaps he is a member of a privileged class?

    #14: I carry for the same reason police officers carry.

    #15: I refuse to give a scumbag the upper hand if confronted.

    #16: When people see I am carrying, they are always very polite.

    #17: …

    I sure wish people would stop trying to apply a standard of truth to what this president says and does. Primitive standards for truth do not apply to him and reality is whatever he says it is. He is so far above the rest of us that we can’t possibly understand him, so trying to apply our infantile and outdated standards to him is not only wrong, it is an insult to his greatness.

    Got that?

    Parents! Get your kids out of the government schools!

    We have homeschooled our children since birth. Yes, we have ‘sacrificed’ to do it, but it is absolutely worth doing and the joys are amazing. Our kids are being taught how, not what, to think.

  • May 6, 2014 at 8:35pm

    aww, c’mon. what is the worst that could happen?

  • April 26, 2014 at 11:48am

    Yes, it is great that the facts are on our side. However, as the election (twice) of B. Hussein Obama proves, having the facts on your side does not always equal winning whether at the ballot box or in the marketplace of ideas.

    The inherent right of people to protect themselves from violent criminals is one of those subjects in which believers in liberty must be willing to engage those who oppose patiently, thoughtfully, and with respect for their feelings (much as we disagree with them). It seems like we are winning for now, but we must never become complacent again.

    B-berg’s scheme will ultimately fail, but that does not mean we can ignore this.

    Sent a contribution to GOA or NRA lately? We’re in for a big fight this year.

    The modus operandi of Obama, Holder, Sebelius (don’t let the door hit you in the …) et al is breathtaking in it’s audacity. When faced with criticism over their lies and failures, rather than admit any wrong doing and change their ways they always double down and blame their political opponents for the very things of which they are guilty. It seems to me the reasons why are not so important.

    The question is, what are we going to do about it? Are we going to be able to undo the damage these serial fools have done to the Republic?

    The Irish (God bless ‘em!) got us out of the Dark Ages. Irish Christian scholars preserved much of the pre-dark ages knowledge base that was the foundation for the Renaissance.

    Science is science, nothing more or less. The question should not be “science vs. religion” or “evolution vs. the Bible” or anything like that. The issue here is the role of science in framing one’s worldview and government policies, and the philosophical premise upon which such decisions are made.

    For example, when someone says that the science on climate change is settled, that is a most un-scientific statement. By it’s very nature, science is never settled because there is always more to learn on any given subject. When someone says “I believe in science” they are in fact making a religious-philosophical statement because there are some things within the realm of science that can only be accepted on the basis of faith.
