    glennpatstu,

    Here is your example – You asked for one here it is.

    Matthew 12
    38Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, “Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you.”

    39He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah..

    When the pharasees asked Jesus to show a miracle, He refused because He knew that they weren’t really wanting the see a miracle. He had already showed them plenty of miracles, but they had still refuse to believe. It wouldn’t matter how many miracles Jesus showed them, they would still continue to ask for more because they didn’t want to believe that He was God.

    As sad as it is – Jay is right. At the end of the day, the good cops say nothing and let the bad cops get away with some pretty bad stuff. 2 current incidents in the news. NM mini van shot at, and cops shooting boy in PA. Watch these two cases and see the results. The NM cop, may get disciplined but I don’t think anything else will come of it for the other 5 cops involved in these incidents. It is sad to see, just like good teachers being dragged down by the bad teachers and unions.

    I agree with you in general, but we must demand more self control from our police. Take the NM minivan incident. – None of these cops are ever disciplined. It’s all just a “good shoot”

    foobared,

    I shoot with many LE also, and 99% of them at the range shoot decently as you noted and know their job. The real problem is the 80% that qualify 1 or 2 times per year and don’t know their job. The real problem is the few good ones to ofter cover for the mediocre to piss-poor ones. Just like teachers.

    NOT a good shoot. A good shoot is weapon in hand pointed at your OR actively being moved in your direction. 2 EMPTY hands in any position is not a good shoot. Put an average armed citizen in the situation of the officer. An anonymous call to 911 saying they saw a gun does not give the Militarized Police free will to shoot. Now add the NM incident. Absolutely no reason to shoot at a fleeing vehicle with 5 kids. Watch both these incidents. NO cop will go to jail, no cop will lose their job. Maybe in NM the one cop who shot will get a warning. The other cop who used a baton to bust out the window was out of control also. They had their plate numbers. No need to go psycho over a 15mph over the limit speeding ticket.

    TimEngle – Wow that was your most coherent rant yet. I follow your attempt at making it sound logical. Usually my ADHD kicks in after your first sentence and I move on. Keep up the good work.

    So since you think it is losing steam, then we should ignore it? I personally think something criminal occurred. I personally think someone gave the order to let them die. I personally think the administration has done more covering up and committed more criminal actions in this effort. And I do believe that once the media can smell the blood they will go for the throat. Maybe you are right and not enough blood was spilled for us to even think twice about it.

    You are using very flawed logic in your hatred for Guns and Pit Bulls. If your logic would hold true then as suggested by others. You are responsible when your car is stolen and used to commit a crime. You are responsible when someone breaks into your house and steals your crow bar and then uses it to break into another home. You are responsible when someone steals your kitchen matches and burns down the neighbors house. The commonality is the criminal not the item used. And just as the black rifle is hated because it is black rather than the fact it is functionally the same as many other rifle, the pit bull is one of the most loving and protective dogs with children. They have a huge tolerance for pain and therefore are used by criminals and deviant people for their entertainment. These are bred and abused.

    The covenant laws of the OT do not apply to Christians unless they were reaffirmed in the NT. So there are OT laws that do apply. But as Gonzo stated “God’s views never evolve”.

    There is no second chance, there is no doing it on your own dime. EasyEight is spot on. Your life is set by the grades you get in Middle School. If this kid didn’t get at least a C, his choices would be gone, even if over the summer he learned calculus. It is a really bad system.

    In England to not pass is a certified career and school death sentence. It is structured so that you will never get the help you need or be able to go to the school / college you want. You are trapped if you do not pass middle school math and other courses.

    They do, I just spent 6 months working in London. America’s poor are better off.

  • October 22, 2013 at 12:45am

    You have to understand their system. This dads reaction is very telling. Without passing with a C, his son is basically banned form certain colleges, if not all. He is forced into certain classes in his next grade and until he graduates. They have a system that makes common core look benign. Please, if you know a British parent ask them to explain this to you. I spent 6 months there last year and I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing from parents. AND HOW THEY JUST ACCEPT IT.

    I have to agree with Rebalee, if it isn’t a ploy, he will be gone soon. To only have two combat ready brigades is disastrous. 2 Brigades equals approximately 3-5,000 soldiers. We should have 4-7 combat divisions ready to deploy at all times.

    No where near 1% closer to 50%, go to any big city, walk up and start a conversation with an officer. Reality will hit you quick.

    “Save your self a lot of legal fees? Call law enforcement in advance, ask if they have a problem with the route you are taking? They are not sworn to be your enemy?”

    Given your statement then you don’t believe we have rights but need to ask permission? And by the way, over the last 20 years the militarization of the police has made them our sworn enemy. Just look at the Sgt covering for the officer. Look at ANY 10 questionable shooting and you cannot find one where the officer was reprimanded or found to be in the wrong. SWAT bust down wrong home door and kills a father of two. OOPS wrong house. OH yeah NO ONE paid for that crime.

    I do also with a lovely note, plus if they call I ask them to send me a mailer as I don’t like to do credit cards only checks. Then I have another chance to send them a lovely note.

    14th amendment doesn’t apply to your statement. 3/5th was in Article 1 of the Constitution and was for slaves. Indians were excluded. 14th amendment was in 1865 and has ZERO bearing on the 3/5th clause in the Constituion.

    keat- The progressive repubs have put forth health care plans and options. But the rest of us believe in Freedom. freedom to choose, freedom of, freedom from
    The government cannot provide all for you. It will collapse. Example EBT cards on Saturday in Louisiana. Watch the videos. Listen to the EBT recipients.

    5 guys in my National Guard unit joined the San Diego PD in 1990/92 by 1995 only one them was still my friend. We were all prior service 82nd and 101st infantry. Which the police loved to get at the time and has contributed to the Militarization of the police forces. Please read the post by
    Jeremyb73

    He explains the problems he saw as an insider. More and more you actually have to take the first step of protecting yourself from the police. 99% of the time police shootings involving pets are called justified. Search the internet read the stories. I can’t give a percentage on Justified shootings of innocent people but it is up there. I will give one PRIME example -Iraq War veteran Jose Guerena- Read that story and find out how many police officers lost their job or went to jail. The answer is ZERO.
