I wonder if they'd let God vote, since He has no ID?
He is not welcome, and He will never go where he is not wanted. It is hard to believe the hate that the Democrats hold for those that don't believe in their agenda. The churches were merely extending their hands in friendship. The arrogance and overbearing attitudes of the Democrats tell us that they will reap the rewards due them.

Makes you wonder if eric holder would insist on it doesn't it. They'd probably permit Jesus to vote ONLY ON THE CONDITION HE GO BACK IN THE GRAVE AND STAY DEAD LIKE SO MANY OTHER OF THEIR CONSTITUENTS!!!

Many of the comments here are excellent, especially those suggesting that one should be proficient with a weapon if they are going to carry in a church. That is one of the last places you want to have to blast away at somebody, with people ducking, darting and screaming, and having other people you may not know are armed sudenly brandishing firearms.
I have done a good deal of research for my church, and there is a process to becoming organized, and endorsed by you church. First, for insurance purposes, all non law enforcement types who will be carrying must pass the Security Guard classes, then firearms are restricted to nothing larger than 9mm or .38. Active teams at large churches have communications, assigned areas, conduct drills, and have plans for every contigency.
In a chaotic, fluid situation, if 15 random people all over the building start brandishing weapons, who knows the good guys from the shooters? That issue is what killed the open carry law in Florida, and I believe there is merit to that concern.

CATB: I have read the Florida Statutes many times and although there are many places a CCW holder is not allowed to carry a firearm, a church is not among them.
That is indeed the case in many states, but not in Florida.
I'm a pastor in Florida, and I carry at every church event I attend. People are lunatics, and I want to be able to protect the people I serve if necessary. I hope I never have to but I want to be prepared.

I realize that a solitary encounter with a cop with an attitude can sour one against the whole lot, but my experience is that for the most part, they are doing a tough and mostly thankless job. Just try to imagine for a moment what your city or neighborhood would be like in a day or two if the police all took a vacation for a few weeks.
Here in Tampa, I would put our cops and their chief up against any law enforcement organization in the country.

Something troubles me about this whole thing; I understand that this took place on a national holiday, when the bombed building was practically empty. Since the killer had no problem getting up close and personal with his killing on the island, why would he choose a day when he likely wouldn’t take too big a toll in the bombing? From what I understand, on a normal work day the building would have had hundreds of people there.

In the ’60′s I drove sports cars at tracks like Daytona at speeds over 160mph on recap racing tires as wide as today’s motorcycle tires. In my humble opinion this would be a thrill better than sex, and far safer than what I was doing.

Rose-Ellen speaks of borders, etc. between Israel and the Arab world. I’m fortunate to live where Coalition Forces congregate, and I heard a Jordanian military officer mention the number of refugee Palestinians in his country.
Quite a few Arab countries surround the contested lands which Israel and the Palestinians squabble over, but have you seen one of them offer to give up some of THEIR land to build a ‘Palestine?’ No, it’s always the Israeli’s tiny spot of land that must be sacrificed.
As Netanyahu once said, and I paraphrase. If the Arab world were to disarm, there would be peace in the Middle East. Is Israel were to disarm, there would be no more Israel.

I researched this a bit. The Tea Party Assn. of Miss. was going to show up at the Black Panther shindig, apparently to protest peacefully. I saw no indication violence was intended.
In my opinion, the Tea party should just have ignored the affair, not give it attention and press. At any rate, it didn’t deserve the response of armed violence to retaliate.
As for blacks being victims of a holocaust, the past is past. I never owned any slaves. I don’t know any blacks that have ever been slaves. Why should people who have never owned slaves have to compensate people who have never been slaves, for slavery?
These people need to stop and think where they would be had their ancestors not been brought to America. Would they perhaps be in some starving village in Ethiopia? Would they be hunted by armed murderers in Darfur? There are many places in Africa where the conditions are far worse than what they bemoan here. Given a choice, which place would they prefer?

As a native of Tampa and a former student at USF, I’m So proud! NOT! Much of that area out there is a miniature Middle East. Walk through University Mall and you think you’re in Bahrain.
I can only imagine it’s a glimpse of sections of London and Paris where the Muslims have pretty much taken over.
Pray for Israel and the USA.
@ CLEM ~~~~ Good to have you back, sir. We have missed your shinning spirit and example....
Don't you know THE Clem Kadiddlehopper would be in tears if he could see us now???
Thanks for the courage and sweet spirit your name brings to us. GOD BLESS!

Great. My local congressperson sometimes frequents the same grocery store I do. Therefore, if I am in the store armed, shopping, minding my own business, and said congressperson happens to be there, I am breaking a federal law.
I feel guilty enough when I drive past a school!

That’s a pretty effective and inexpensive penal system: send the criminals to a border town prison, wait until its dark, and let them “escape” to the U.S. Problem solved.

The mere suggestion of doing something equally insulting to the Islamic faith would have the entire Muslim world in the streets. And, the liberals who sit back and chortle over another slap in the face to Christianity, would be apoplectic over the thought.
Then again, we turn the other cheek and pray for these fools. That is the conditioned response they get from Christians, so they know they can get away with it.

I live in the South. Behind my couch was an old car on blocks, several dead batteries, an oak tree, and the trailer.

Has anyone ever considered that an inexpensive way for Mexico to rid itself of ITS criminals is to escort them to the U.S. border, give them a few bucks American and say “adios?”
All we’re doing is giving them back……

COMBINED there were approximately 300 protestors for this leftie cause, yet it makes national news.
300 THOUSAND PLUS show up for Beck’s rally and what?…….ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
But, never let it be said that the MSM is slanted

Let me play Devils advocate here: If these people have done nothing beyond protesting with signs, is it not a violation of their First Amendment rights to have them investigated to the point of invading their homes and taking away their possessions?
Is it not just as wrong as when Tea Partiers were under the microscope for saying things the government didn’t like?
If I read this correctly, a warrant was issued and properly served. Warrants are not handed out like donunts at a morning coffee break. It takes "serious business and real facts" to get a judge to sign a warrant, even a properly and carefully prepared one. I tried to play the advocate role also, but that many warrants issued for interconnected people indicates a whole lot more than smoke and mirrors.
I do, however, take joy and pleasure in reading that these people are feeling a little sqeeze coming thier way, and Sudin's comment, "it kinda of outrageous that citizens of the United States could be targeted like this,” absolutely begs for ttop billing in a clown show !
Thank you WE4KINGS. You are right. Even the FBI can't go to a judge and say "We want to raid these 8 homes just in case they might be involved with something terrorist" and the judge says"Uh, Ok'. They usually have to have something to show the judge that is some factual basis for the action.
My uncle use to do an impression of your name sake..LOL.. Yes it's JUST as bad as long as that is all they were doing.. however.. they seem to have fallen with displeasure with the Chosen one when they started to make premature DEMANDS on his SOCIAL JUSTICE agenda.. One poster a short while back had a link you can read.. with the TRUTH coming out into the light OBAMA had to do something to quiet them before they spoke out again and people SAW what they heard was coming.. Now they hopefully are to scared to speak..or demand.. I somehow don't trust someone who arrests people who are UNION members for doing what he himself is doing.. If they come clean with what they know I will be the first to get behind them.. a few of these people have been to D.C. it seems lobbying so they are KNOWN by Washington..
Sorry Fellas, but you are both absolutely wrong here. So long as the Investigation is about "Common Criminal" activity then they do have to have a Warrant of some kind. But, the now infamous "Patriot Act" changed all that. When ever the Investigation is of suspected "Terrorist Activity" no warrants are required to enter any place, at any time, and sieze anything they want, and not even do they have to tell you they have been there, nor what they siezed. All this was supposed to be for use against the Muzzies, but as with all U.S. Code, it applies to everybody in this country and from the outside. The "Magic Word" is "Terrorism" use it, and the ENTIRE Constitution goes in the dumper. Voila, you are living in WWII Germany/the Soviet Union/East Germany and the list goes on. In the United Sates of America today, IF the Government wants you, they can and will just come and get you, with no limitations whatsoever. So don't ever believe that you have any "Rights" other than the ones the particular Government Nazi you are dealing with, thinks you have. This is exactly why the law was written and passed, they knew they were going to need it to try and deal with what is coming.
