Do YOU truly believe that it is the place of government to get involved every time someone gets hurt? How many people have been injured in hay rides over the decades in Maine aside from this one incident? Do you have ANY solutions EVER that don’t involve men with guns sticking their noses into other peoples private lives? Certainly you have very few.

“Baltimore Officers May Literally Have Targets on Their Backs After Police Reportedly Uncover ‘Credible Threat’”
Don’t make me pull out Inigo Montoya on you!

I believe the group declared itself a world wide caliphate in 2014. Before that, Obama had referred to them as the JV team.
The effort to shirk the rise of this force out on a previous president it just inaccurate and sad.
Yeah, who was in charge when they went varsity?
Bush! That brilliant idiot! He’s STILL running things!
When will Obama ever be able to outsmart the village idiot and take control of his own foreign policy?
We've seen the gun runner Holder and his plan to 'restructure' the Ferguson PD after officer Wilson was exonerated. The queen of AmeriKa has spoken at length about his desire to have a civilian army answerable only to him so we'll see where all this goes moving forward.
Cavallo, I believe we already have the stepping stones in place. Obama has been encouraging a disrespect for local law enforcement while building up federal law enforcement. The handwriting is on the wall.
"it’s the view of the administration that the vast majority of law enforcement officers all across the United States do an excellent job and they pursue their work with professionalism and the kind of fairness that we expect from those in authority"
I won't speak for anyone else but myself, but this does not make me feel better. Their idea of what constitutes professionalism and fairness is scary at best.

Actually they probably shouldn’t. No one should. This should, of course, come after either a consumption tax reform of the tax code or a simple flat tax. Then the IRS and the thugs in government can’t play favorites with which churches will be investigated for saying the wrong things at the wrong times, and which churches would be allowed to get away with it (like Rev Wright).
Yeah twern't much of a punch more like a love tap.
Was that even considered a punch? I noticed the former CO had to think about it for a second.
"I noticed the former CO had to think about it for a second."
He had a quick decision to make, "Am I sending this punk to jail... or the hospital?" and "Do I just want to give a quick statement to the police or do I want to spend the next 5 hours in holding explaining my side of the story?"
Yeah, he sort of punched like a girl.
Should have hit him with his skateboard. It looked like the busybody was looking for a fight.
Plavelle, the foul mouthed coward was fortunate that the corrections officer didn't insert the cowards' skateboard up a body cavity, wheels and all. Preferably sideways.
If O-blah-ma was a boxer! Bwaaaahaaaahaaaa!! I kill me... ;-)
Looks to me like the "busybody" won the fight.
“National Socialism and religion cannot exist together. “–Adolf Hitler
10th October, 1941, midday:
“Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure. ” – Adolf Hitler
Hitler had no problems using the iconography and catch phrases of religious fervor to promote National Socialism. Just as National Socialism is a stepping stone to State Marxism, so to is using the messages of the faith of the population to transform them into a new faith. There are many programs under the Nazi Regime to punish Churches that went against the religion of The State, of which Nazism was the religion. They quite admit in private correspondences their distaste for established religion, and their goal of using religion to advance their own brand of State centric worship.

This story must be incorrect then.. no firearm would willingly enter a Gun Free Zone. They are fanatical about obeying words posted on doors.
and don’t forget that new “universal background check law" recently enacted there – since that law prevents guns being in the hands of criminals don’t cha know…..it can't be possible for anyone to break the laws any longer
I give you, "GFZINO."
What we really should focus on here is the kids inability to read the no firearms sign. I'm sure this would never have happened had the kid been able to read.

Good to see a victory for liberty for a change. No one should be forced to work for someone they don’t wish to work for.
Where I work, I have had to serve people I would have loved to give a black eye to. if they weren't already that shade.
Their ATTITUDE ticked me off

Too many atheists replace a deity or higher metaphysical philosophy with a worship of The State and Marxist ideals. I’d have no problems voting for someone that championed individual liberty and was against the encroachment of The State into our personal lives, even if he didn’t believe in a spiritual side of mankind.
Cavallo: "Too many atheists replace a deity or higher metaphysical philosophy with a worship of The State and Marxist ideals."
And you can support that contention with substantive proof - right?
Just what is the "spiritual side of mankind"?
I believe myself "spiritual" but hold no god belief (like anything like most folks).
God beliefs / religious beliefs / spiritual beliefs can be VERY different things.
A belief is manifest in our emotional center, or our soul.
That there are people who think that we are no more than an evolved simian may have difficulty in believing they even have a soul, unless they believe it evolved along with our intellect. If one is not willing to admit that 'something' makes us different than what we supposedly evolved from, then it would follow that they believe animals are not acting on their instincts. Or, if animals are considered capable of survival right alongside us, then all we must be using to get along is instinct, also.
A belief is STILL but a mental 'tool'.
Can you medically identify the soul for me? Or just define the soul.
What is the soul necessary for?
You seem to be attempting to equate what limited knowledge we have of the other creators of this world with our human ability to 'reason' - and have faith / beliefs.
Not sure what point(s) you are trying to make here WEBWITHDEB.
I happen to believe the other creators of this world - and our entire 'environment' - are REQUIRED for our lives. I do NOT believe we we GIVEN 'domain' over the other creators of this world - by some 'supreme being'. I believe we are but a part of this 'creation'. And that's wherever / however this creation came about. And I believe our (supposed) mental 'superiority' has allowed us to TAKE control of this domain in which we exist.
IF we were GIVEN domain (the ability / responsibility) to reign over all the other creators.... Well. I would say we are doing our darn-best impression of a most-destructive and wasteful 'master of his domain'.
When our Free Will greed and selfishness leads to massive abuse of the creators and environment we've supposedly been entrusted to oversee... To the detriment of not only the other creators and environment but to MILLIONS of our fellow humans...
And I see you don't ever talk to anyone that is an atheist.
The soul is necessary to 'read' emotion, or otherwise identify a feeling one has and the ability to understand that that feeling is due to BEING a human -- we all just experience what WE experience, as individuals.
Our brain's function in all of that is to determine what to do with the emotion one feels, how to react to it. Sure they work in conjunction -- that is part of our triunal being, i.e., physical, emotional, intellectual.
Can you honestly tell me that everyone thinks to act the same way when they feel the same emotion? If they were the same function (thinking/believing) wouldn't everyone all have uniform behavior in the face of a singular emotion?

“God’s Word” is a philosophy. It’s a way of life, and how they interpret it. She blames her misconduct on the fact that the philosophy she wanted to adopt doesn’t allow her to be the way she wants to be. Therefore she needs to find a new philosophy, rather than demand the old philosophy be different. The Mormons don’t force her to be a Mormon, or to follow their beliefs. She is quite free to follow something other than Mormonism.

It’s not outrageous. It’s one of the more prevalent conspiracy theories here in the US. While I fully think that our government is evil enough to want to do something like that. I don’t think they have the competence to pull something like that off. There are just too many things that would have to go just right, and too many things that could have gone wrong to make the risk worth it.
That's literally exactly how I feel to the letter. Nailed it
it is more likely the US government knew the attack was coming and chose not to intervene...
Although I should say that what the general said was stupid since there is no evidence for it
People act like the government doesn't have a habit of doing this sort of thing. Lusitania (WWI), Gulf of Tonkin, most likely Pearl harbor, etc...
Our govt knew what these guys were planning, nobody acted on it.
So in a way, our government knew about it and let it happen. The extent to which our government knew about it should be a primary focus.
9-11 truth in 5min according to Cavallo:

Suck it up.
You live in Baltimore.
Your government will not protect you from rioters. They’ll be more than happy to deprive you of freedom or your life should you try and defend yourself.

That philosophy precludes sexual perversions. You can’t live a lifestyle of sexual perversion and then demand that the philosophy change to meet your lifestyle. Create a new philosophy, but don’t demand that others change their philosophy. Create the Alternative Later Day Saints denomination, that accepts sexual deviancy as a matter of course and celebration.
You are correct. It's not a biblical problem but rather a 'philosophical' problem. God's word has nothing to do with the condemnation she faces.
"God's Word" is a philosophy. It's a way of life, and how they interpret it. She blames her misconduct on the fact that the philosophy she wanted to adopt doesn't allow her to be the way she wants to be.

Cav: You always end a post with that little hook, as it were. Interesting. Reminds me of me.
