    I would also recommend silver. Even if gold were to fall to half its price, silver would still be under priced at its current price compared to its historic rate compared to gold. In other words while there may be some debate rather or not gold is over priced because of governments purchasing it to hedge for the collapse of the west, silver is extraordinarily unlikely to fall in price.
    And the second reason is that I buy silver and if i can convince more of you to buy silver also then the price of what i have should go up lol.

    It seems he was just taking the opportunity to take a jab a jews and possibly to deflect the uncomfortable feeling arising from his conflicted view about abortion?

    Is it treason to expose potential treason? Snowden did expose many things that weren’t necessary, but if this is properly investigated I think we will find that the NSA has used the information they’ve gathered on elected officials to extort, maybe even blackmail. I think, with little doubt, we will find that laws and legislation at the top levels have been altered by way of illegally obtained information from the NSA.

    Even if we don’t because of the criminal actions of the NSA that Snowden exposed, they opened the door for our country to potentially be destroyed

    Snowden should face some punishment, but not nearly as severe of punishment as those who put the current NSA surveillance program in place in violation of the constitution and put our country and the legitimacy of our system of government at peril or far worse

    Try fact checking that Horus/Jesus stuff you see in Zietgiest on a secular site, the “stories” about horus that they pull from were made up in the early 20th centurary and bares little to no correlation to the actual mythology of Horus.
    Although Zietgiest does touch on a few real problems in large, when you start trying to find the sources it starts to become questionable.
    The series appears to share themes with sustainable development/globalism movements. Its an interesting watch but please don’t build a belief structure around Zietgiest without checking the information sources.

    If you click on the KATU link then it does state that s/he was born without male genitalia. I think it is defiantly significant to this story and should have been mentioned. It sheds more light on how this person could actually think to say that “God made me transgender”.
    While there is a lot more information that could be found out as to what gender this person is, having that information puts the whole story in a different light. This is no longer the case of someone doing this Just to cause problems, this is ,to some degree, an issue this person was born with.

    there are some big government people who call themselves libertarians, similar to the way that Lindsey Graham calls himself a conservative, but I would wager that more who call themselves republican support socialism then those who call themselves libertarian do.

    I do believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet, I also believe that before Joseph Smith was born, that different man, Captain John Smith, married Pocahontas, I thought that Baptist and LDS were in agreement on John Smith, if not, can we at least agree on Pocahontas?

    @clark_addison08
    I agree with you about the war on drugs. I grew up as what you would consider a “social conservative” and I admit I was wrong about 1 thing important thing, and it wasn’t my social conservative values. It was about using the government to enforce those values and deprive people of choosing between right and wrong for themselves and learning about the consequences of decisions. I think that’s the best you are going to be able to hope for.
    Now the flip side of that, if we ever did get our act together and worked on building a responsible society where drugs could be legalized, a more free and responsible society like the one it sounds like you are cheering for(and I along with you) is necessarily going to have steeper consequences for abuse.
    Why? Because by allowing people more freedom it gives people more power, or sometimes just more incentive(in the case of a crack addict) to take away freedom from their neighbors which would be counter productive to what I assume we both want(a more free society)
    Would you support those harsher consequences? I think harsh consequences would prevent the story above from happening again, but instead our society will probably allow the officers to hide behind their badge as an excuse. They will probably allow the doctors that assisted the cops in raping this man hide behind the excuse that the cop/judge told them to.
    They should all be held personally and individually responsible, it is the only way to

    I agree with you that social and ecomonic norms are currently different by race demographic and I don’t find that uncomfortable at all, but I don’t see how that deminishes a persons ability to get an ID if the opertunity is provided to them. I believe what you describe is a symptom of poor and destitute communities and not inherently linked to any genetic condition. In my state a provision was included to provided free IDs to those who needed them was included when the voter ID laws were passed. In today’s world you can’t do much in the form of anything that has to do with legal or banking affairs without one so this served 2 good purposes I think. The real problem you are pointing out we should address by making sure everyone can get an ID that wants one, not by jeopardizing the legitimacy of our voting system.
    Im for things being as up and up as is reasonably possible. Trust in our voting system is really the only confidence we have in our freedom at all in the system we live in. If that confidence is ever lost our progeny will be doomed to a bloody revolution to correct any perceived injustice in the system.

    Dismayed Veteran,
    I agree that what you say is sometimes true, I would also add that those who believe that blacks cannot be racist are only justifying their own racism to themselves as believing “certian races” to be beyond any negetive human attribute based on the color of their skin is racist in and of itself

  • October 25, 2013 at 8:28am

    JJJustice, why do you think some races are more incompetent than other?
    You assume minorities are the only ones without IDs? I never understood why people on your side have to bring race into this, Im of the mindset that there’s about an equal number of incompetent people of every race,

    At least he doesnt pretend that he isn’t what he is, like the president does. I think he’s wrong of corse, but he seems to be honest which is more then i can say for most that I believe to be just like him.

    I would say none. However some people are currently calling termination of the life of the unborn contraception which the Bible does speak clearly about. The bible Pslams 139:16 should be consulted for a biblical viewpoint on when life begins. After that passages against taking the life of an innocent can be found in Exodus 20:13;Leviticus 27:14. There are more, but those lay a very clearly defined and solid foundation to start from.

    As far as traditional contraception, neither Mormons or Baptist are concerned about those to the best of my knowledge.

    That’s a fairly good synopsis. Although to clarify the last section, LDS do believe in salvation in only possible by grace through the atonement of Jesus Christ who is God.
    We believe that Christ can save you From your sins, but not In your sins, faith, repentance, and baptism are required for salvation. Belief alone is not sufficient James 2:19.
    This life is the time for men to prepare to meet God. While salvation will keep one from being cast into outer darkness, the our choices on earth do have eternal consequences and God will judge and reward us according to how we live our lives on earth Matthew 16:27; Rev 22:12

  • October 23, 2013 at 9:32am

    Evangelicals believe in ex-nihilo, LDS believe in ex-materia. Those interested in understanding can reconcile it in their mind by starting there

  • October 23, 2013 at 9:28am

    It’s definitely time that we focus on what we do agree on for whats to come in the battle for religious freedom, sure there are going to be a lot of people bickering but God will sort all that out in the end and Christians are use to constant persecution anyway so it’s not anything they haven’t handled before

    I happen to be on agree with him on Syria, but Putin is so full of crap, lol.
    The difference between the Russian people and the American people in the eyes of the world right now I think is this. The American people willfully elected a radical serial liar to lead them in a volatile time, The Russian people were “told they elected” a fairly reasonable(for Russian standards) KGB goon. The Russians end up looking far better anyway you slice it. At least they have their tyrant under control which is more then I can say for America right now.

    Ray, While I know where you are coming from, I don’t think The Son of Man would go to sexpo for the purpose of collecting donations for the poor. Maybe I am wrong.

    Isnt it ironic that a denomination that was founded on divorce(Anglican) is now going against the grain once again on marriage?
