Both sides seem to be striving for the high moral ground by degrading an alleged malefactor. That struggle is hopeless based on the facts. The crime of buying baby parts may not have happened, unless they saved the best for video last. The dentist may have been uninvolved in luring the lion out of the reservation. The fact that no one knows does not seem to matter. In fact, justice does not seem to matter as long as certain politically correct concepts are touted with an implied threat that your good person card won’t get punched if you don’t come down on the politically correct side of the issue. Innocence does not matter anymore, just being on the right side to preserve the comfort of being in the right political tribe.
What goes against the dentist, is the little reported fact that he was fined BIG TIME for doing the exact same thing a year or two earlier with a different type of critter in his sights.
Amen, you are 100% right

I would demand to see the payroll of those part timers and call them into court to answer a few questions.

Was there any sign of bone loss due to spinning after the Anglican Church went squishy on homosexuality, circa 2002?

Moses married a Cushite or Ethiopian woman. His brother and sister did not approve.

If you take down a list of rules given to Moses and put up a representation of Satan on the same spot, are you just changing the scenery from one Biblical story to another? Why is one Biblical story more unconstitutional than the other?
Is that being discussed? I assume you are referring to the satanic temple putting up a statue in Detroit but that is a different state with different laws and constitution.
Because the Satanic Temple does not believe in Satan, nor does it promote his worship. It is a symbol of secular knowledge for them. I wish the media would mention this every now and again. No, I am not a member, I am just pointing out the facts.
The 10 Commandments are the basic laws of western civilization. What would the satan display represent except anti-those laws? The monument represents part of our history. Satan represents more of our present (ugh!) than our past. His statue has no business in an historic representation.

I used to think that there must be some kind of dualistic struggle going on inside of a mind contemplating suicide but I have talked to a few people who tried to commit suicide and they deny that the battle ever took place. One guy tried to kill himself by drinking mercury, a lot of mercury. He totally denied making dueling calculations on the cost versus the benefit. If there is going to be an intervention, it seems to me that it must come from outside. Depression makes it hard to have a reasonable discussion about life. I imagine it is like driving a car with no break or running a nuclear reactor with no control rods. Worst yet the operator does not seem to care.

Are recruiters going to be disarmed when they come on the university campus? Gun Free zones are 2A harassment zones. Hospitals, parks, any event where school children happen to be outside of school(Tennessee). The post office, starting at the parking lot except at certain locations out West…
If the US Government authorizes them to carry while on recruiter duty Gun Free Zones would not apply to them. This is the same as other government workers who are authorized to be armed on duty.

I think it would be healthy to admit that there is a different treatment of heterosexual sin versus homosexual sin. I certainly don’t hold my own sin in the same level of low regard as the same sin in some other person. My sin is more detailed, nuanced and surrounded with mitigating factors. If God hates sin and we are made in the image of God, why is it a shock that we are called “haters?” Church discipline is so rare that homosexuals seem to think that they are the only victims of church discipline. Why are they so hypersensitive to criticism from the pulpit? They find a disapproving Christian in every pew as quick as Al Sharpton finds a racist inside of every white person, unless they vote Democrat. I can think of only one famous person in the last two centuries that was disciplined for sexual misconduct and she was a Jew! The Amish will practice church discipline consistently but they don’t have a lot of famous people. . Sexual misconduct of any flavor is a detriment to society. Sex is the motive for many crimes and is worth regulating in the church and in society if you think all lives matter. Divorce is a man-made solution to sin but it does not measure up to the expectations of God. You may not be able to unscramble the egg and may need a place and an opportunity to start over but the evidence seems to say that Jesus told people to go and sin no more. That starting place is with repentance not acceptance and approval of ongoing sin.

Gun Free zones started with Jimmy Carter. He issued lots of executive orders trying to prevent government employees from having them at work in their own personal cars.

Gun Free Zones = OSHA for criminals.

Does anyone know why they need a special bank to buy American goods? Is this military goods by any chance? Foreign aid used to be predicated on the assumption that the money would be spent in the US. I knew a few foreign students in college who always complained about that because the money that we said was going to foreign aid would have gone farther if they could spend it nearly anywhere else in the world. Maybe this is why there are so many illegals, the foreign aid to Mexico is all of the money that flows not to the bank but back home in Mexico. One way or another they are dumping their unemployed on us. As far as Mexico is concerned, the Bank is out of the loop.

I think the reason we have so many candidates is that there is great angst among conservatives about detecting the RINO-factor. A lot of us have voted for rinos who justify their compromise by calling it “getting something done.” When you finally find some one you like, they call him or her “unelectable.” We are looking for someone who will be reliable in the long run and not “evolve” on a critical issue like immigration, foreign affairs, basic morality and economic policy. Can we believe that some who evolves into our way of thinking is going to stay that way? Who knows. I don’t like Trump or Cristy but but at least Trump is threatening to represent my views on immigration. What we miss is representation. McCain seemed to find other things to represent in the Senate like the Gang of Eight or the Gang of Fourteen when he should have been representing the Gang of Arizona.

Cristy pardoned or threatened to pardon some people and the local DA loosened their grip on some crazy cases where out of state folks got nabbed. New Jersey Gun laws are a disgrace to common sense and their enforcement by local DA’s is even worse. Before saying you are for new “common sense” gun laws, you need to wipe out the ones that don’t make good sense right now.

It probably died of cooked feet if it was walking on the pavement too much. Maybe the cops gave him a rough ride in the Paddy Wagon.

No “ism” will work without a decent system of morals as a foundation. Rome fell because of its moral decay, Socialism has failed several times because of its moral decay into government theft on behalf of those too lazy to work and too nervous to steal. There must be respect for property rights. The most perfect set of morals would be required for socialism to work.

I have two problems with this report. First the page seems to be a right to left rendering of the Qur’an that is alleged to exist during a time when Arabic was written vertically. My second problem is that if this was a translation of that time and legitimate, it should have been burned to prevent it from being at variance with the approved version. That means it is very very rare or most likely, the writing is on old goat skin. It might be interesting to test a sample with ink on it versus a sample without ink on it. Newer ink plus old goat would yield a different conclusion than the skin alone.

The people watching the movie would have better low light vision than any person, shooter or police officer, entering the theater to cause mayhem or rescue the innocent.

Why didn’t she make bail?
Did she go cold turkey on anti-depression medication?
I would think that a plastic bag would have been better used to smother yourself.
Did she get any drugs from the other inmates?
Did she have a lawyer or public pretender?
Did she have any visitors or phone calls while in jail?
Did she try to mail something while in the jail?
How long was it going to be before her bail hearing?

I am no lawyer nor do I have a lot of experience with courts so this may sound silly. If I were the judge, I would just tell them, “We will wait until they arrive.” No one would leave the room until those documents showed up if it took all night. I would clear the court room and order pizza. If anyone asked for a delay, I would tell them the delay started years ago. I would ask them if they would rather wait in a jail cell while their minions are sending the documents over.

I don’t understand people worrying about Trump not being presidential material. The one we have now is not presidential material. So how would be be worse off? There seems to be a fear that that there is an obligation to put on the presidency like a tight spandex garment so that the presidency becomes a replica of the person wearing the suit. There seems to be this idea that the president is an entitlement that can defy any norm, offend any person or do anything that any fraction of the people would find gross or unwise. The president we have is the president of himself and not the people. Ronald Reagan was both for and against abortion in his lifetime but once it was the law of the land he spoke out against it about once a year but he did not gather the resources of the government and operate it like an arm of the DNC against those who opposed him. He did not anesthetize the Department of Justice against illegal drugs, nor the INS against illegal aliens. He did not try to cash in the military to get another peace dividend either. People are feeling the contempt coming from the White House and the Republican Party that will not be seen doing what they promised. Ironically, according to the Carl Rove theory of winning, Trump is the perfect candidate to take away votes from Democrats who are also against illegal immigration. Trump’s liberal values of old might manifest themselves if he gets power but that is something the Left can hope for too.
