    The only way to shut her up is to fix failing socialist policies. Fix Obamacare so that people are buying insurance instead of a piece of paper that does not protect you from bankruptcy. Fix immigration. What is wrong with a system that filters out criminals before they cross the border? Fix the debt problem that steals from the future generations to pay for consumptive spending in this generation. Fix the employment system that encourages avoiding work. Fix the educations system of financing. As long as I can remember, the student loan system does nothing but move from bankruptcy to bankruptcy and bail out to bailout. The modern college student is a slave to this system. Fix the education system. Stop using it as a political crutch and teach something useful on other levels besides politics. Stop measuring compassion by how much the government spends on something. Mexicans are economic refugees from a failed socialist system. The policies that they are running from are the ones they will vote for while here. That is not hate. It is reality.

    The claim that illegals create less crime than American citizens is false. If you took a hundred perfect citizens and a hundred perfect illegal aliens, the one hundred illegal aliens all broke the immigration laws. The immigration system was suppose to be a filter to keep the criminals on the other side of the border. If the system worked perfectly, the average alien would be statistically less likely to be a criminal than the average American . If you use the Geraldo Rivera model where immigrants are slightly below the average American in criminality, then you just prove that the immigration system does not work. Trump and Coulter do say mean things about illegals but Trump and Coulter can not respond with exact and conclusive government data because the Left has done the same thing to immigration data as the Global Warming advocates have done to climate data. Maybe Gruber was involved in immigration data collection too..?

    Supposedly, the gay agenda claimed this would never happen. How did Hobby Lobby skate by?

    I hate to admit that you are right about this. But, more generally, there is no recent history of church discipline on these matters. People who do not conform need to be set outside of the church as outlined in the Bible. Failing to do that eventually leads to the leadership being the ones who need to be set outside of the church. Some think that the church lost the gay marriage debate when they embraced the legal reforms on divorce, especially no fault divorce. Now at least half of any congregation is or has been divorced. Few are going to crack down on their favorite sin. A lot of Protestant denominations have been the recipients of Catholics who were disciplined for divorce, so maybe, they let sin into the camp somewhat and now this is part of the result. Marriage used to be forever except for the three A’s, Adultery, Abuse and Abandonment. Making it a matter of convenience caused a whole new governmental push to protect the children of divorce. They made divorce easy on everyone but the kids, generally. They eliminated the injustice of a person enduring an unpleasant marriage with the injustice of a child having to understand why Mommy and Daddy don’t live together anymore. The durability of love was fractured and is now a fragile thing that can not be depended upon when the sledding gets tough.

    The Methodist are next. They already seem to be split in an old vs. young fashion. Some little country churches with an average age of 75 will just die out.

    For those who don’t get the stealing part, let me explain. The progressive income tax is stealing. By force, the government collects taxes, more from some than others and it gives services, more to some than others. It forces some people to pay for basic government while others pay little nothing or receive little or a great deal. This is all done under the color of law and it takes on the flavor of slavery. There too, a person’s labor was taken for the benefit of others while being left with sufficient resources to continue the process.

    Sincerely held beliefs lead to terrible decisions. A pervert has a sincerely held belief that a child wants to have sex with him or her. Two Muslims sincerely believe they should shoot up a cartoon contest or behead a non-believe to go to the best part of Paradise. Congress often thinks the best idea is to kick the can down the road and let someone else figure out how to pay for it. Love does not always win. Bonnie and Clyde probably loved each other. Who’s sincerely held belief will prevail and who should get the power of the government behind their sincerely held belief to enforce it? The OJ jury sincerely believed that OJ Simpson was innocent or at least the prosecution could not prove the case. Arguments like this often work on young people but they end badly sometimes. Love has little to due with justice because to have justice, one must have, at the same time, Truth. Many times the truth is in the future and is not knowable, but love is here and now and as ignorant as Ben Afleck ten years ago.

    I would like to see spending bills passed by 2/3 or 3/4 majority.

    No. They will never be satisfied and they will never define the exact state of affairs at which they will be come satisfied. The trick is to keep moving the goal post farther and farther away as long as the tactic works. Eventually, we may all be wearing black face make-up to show proper respect.

    Too much accurate history degrades interest in social justice.

    I hope you did not miss the episode where she had to admit that she got shafted by Obamacare when her health care went up and I mean way up. She was not snorting that night but let out her real sense of betrayal. She is over that now and is back to business as usual. Fox needs to turn off the mics of people who are talking over others. People with compromised hearing or dependent on captioning can not follow the conversation of either on.

    Slavery was legal and upheld by the Supreme Court. Not everything that is legal is moral. I suspect that the Supreme Court will be telling us that gays can be considered “married” pretty soon but that does not make it moral or helpful or a good idea. Slavery is pretty much just plain stealing another mans labor. We tried to make up for those problems by affirmative action but that is too much like giving benefits to those who were not slaves at the expense of people who were not slave owners. In a lot of ways it is like gun control. The innocent are punished for the sins of the minority.

    The racism argument is going to be ongoing because there is no agreed limit where such behavior is socially unacceptable. The Left will continue to move the goal post as long as there is an advantage to it. There is apparently a limit to law and order as evidenced by the tolerance for looting, property damage and violence against the police. No such tolerance is allowed for racism, except blue racism against the law officers who enforce the peace. If you say we are better than any other area of the world, you expose your “tolerance for racism.” If you think that employment should be on merit and not skin color, you are a racist. Meanwhile the quest to find ever more evidence of racism in flags, speech and associations with other people are just going to get worse. The Leftist are going to be hearing dog whistles that even the dogs can’t hear and seeing evidence that eagles can not see in the quest to cash in on their victim status.

    By now, I expected some leaks from the hospital. He lived for a week after the incident. I would like to know if the medical examiner had access to the hospital records of treatment. There is a report that he was on drugs when he went to the hospital. If the injury was self inflicted, the opiates would make it less painful to self inflict those injuries. I am surprised that the “hands-up-don’t-shoot” guy from Furgueson has not been showing up as a witness that the van was seen driving in an erratic manner. I have been in New York City traffic and it is frightening for a person who lives on a tar and chip road. More than once I saw a taxi change a four lane road into a five lane road. Was Mr. Gray immobilized during his hospital stay? It seems like if Mr. Gray stood up in the back of a van driving in New York City, he must have been not thinking that through. Riding in the bed of a pickup is not allowed in my state. It seems like a high impact injury would have left a serious injury, most likely to the head. I think that he might have gotten some rough treatment during the arrest and the attempt to exaggerate the injury while inside of the van finished him off. Why couldn’t the hospital have exaggerated the injury when they put him in his hospital bed. If he was on dope, he might not have been able to signal to the nursing staff that he was feeling pain before the injury was made worse. What if Mr. Gray tried to get out of bed to relieve himself and hurt himself even more?

    I always liked the proposition that spoons cause obesity and need to be eliminated even though that might risk an epidemic of anorexia. Liberals are not afraid of the unintended consequence even though they don’t know what it will cost or where they will get the resources, their belief in their good intentions wipes out all caution and justifies suppressing the truth by bad data collection or dishonest interpretation. Even if everyone had the same correct data, the dishonest interpretation of the data will always be with us.It is a major barrier to creating the perfect world.

    Since evil people use guns, we need parity with them in protecting ourselves. This includes reasonable ammo storage inside of guns, u to whatever is likely to be used against you. Liberals always want to take away guns from law abiding citizens and ignore the ones who will not obey the law. Nuclear Arms treaties will not work on evil people nor on evil governments. That is why they don’t work internationally either. The parallels reinforce the value of the argument. If you go to church with a court official, like a judge, he will be armed at all times, at least in my state. He is no less required to carry than a policeman. There will be guns in churches in my state. Gun free zones only enhance the ability to kill. Of all of the ancient artifacts of slavery is our gun control laws. They were designed to prevent Blacks from owning guns and are still used that way. The idea that the sheriff, who really does not have a crystal ball, should decide or have the ability to fail to decide on a citizen owning a gun is clearly a work around of the Second Amendment. Our president recently had a chance to include that in a list of past evils committed in the post slavery era. He forgot about that.

    Wasn’t it the Catholic Church that justified war by defining the conditions whereby it could be considered “justified?” Does the Pope mean the war has to be fought with weapons made by Buddhist or atheist? It seems that I remember something about proportionality within the teaching. Lets say you get into a gun fight with a thug or crazy person. Does the innocent party have a right to parity or nearly equal hardware with which to defend his life? I guess what I’m asking is the Catholic position on war scalable up and down from your house to your entire country? If a Christian makes a gun, how much time in Purgatory is that going to cost you?

    They are showing us who they are afraid of. AP has been doing this stuff for years even in low level state elections.

  • June 21, 2015 at 10:55am

    I missed the time in history where there were no guns and society was much better off. Feudal Japan maybe? Ides of March, Julius Caesar? Seventh Century Arabia? Statistics must be interpreted but sometimes they twist statistics so badly, there is no truth left in them except the truth that they wish could be true. Are people really safer in Australia? I heard they make the cops leave their guns at the police station when they go home. Are Liberals that good at making predictions that we would risk everything dear to us so they can be comfortable? They are masters of counting the people killed (except abortions)but have no idea of the people that are saved and if they were saved, those people have no value in any of the calculations.

    Worst yet, he will probably be tempted to write a book to pay his legal defense and appeals. He dropped out at the tenth grade but has plenty of time to bone up on his writing skills.
