As to how shoot someone up in a tree stand; consider the position of the shooter on a ridge line, firing down into a valley. If the hunter in the tree stand was camoed well, he could have been over looked by a careless hunter as part of the tree. The only way to know would be to know the trajectory of the round through the body. If the trajectory is below to above, then something stinks. If it’s from above to below it lends some credibility to the acciden theory.
All that said, Southeastern Ohio gets more than it’s fair share of once a year hunters from Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland. When I was a teenager my family moved to Gallia Count from W.Va. and I was told to look for those county tags (I admit it, I can’t spell the name of the county Cleveland is in…) in an area I was hunting and if I saw them to leave the area and hunt somewhere else.

I live in a small community on State Route 23, part of the main route from Detroit and Chicago into Columbus; the routes used to run drugs north and south across Ohio. There have been a number of news reports this year about the number of cars with Michigan tags making repeated runs up and down 23. I’m not sure where the stats came from, but the reports maintained that a huge percentage of these vehicles are moving drugs.
I think this law is a huge mistake, but there is a very real problem in Central Ohio with drugs of all types; the citiizens of neighboring Marion, Ohio have even launched a shame campaign against their police and mayor declaring herroin the real economy in Marion and calling the supposed drug control efforts “Operation Revolving Door”. The later would be funny if 90% of those arrested in the drug raids weren’t back on the streets in less than 72 hours.
Of course, the cars, vehicles and other property siezed in these raids aren’t returned to those arrested. That material is auctioned off and the money hits the city coffers post-haste.

Years ago when we were relocating our family into Northern Kentucky (right across the river from Cincinnati), my wife and I looked at a house that was listed as having a partial basement. We liked it and made an offer. At that point we were asked to meet the realtor at the house a second time; it was then that she showed us a hidden stairwell in the master bedroom that led down into the other half of the basement, not reachable from the rest of the house. It was a nice sized room that was dominated by a hot tub, a floor covered in deep pile, purple shag carpet and had all four walls and the celing covered in mirrored tiles. We withdrew our offer based on the “Ewww” factor.
Withdrew your offer? I would've been like heck yeah, we're totally buying this house! However, I do think I'd want to flood the entire room with Lysol for a week or so before going into it.

I knew I liked this guy; I just wasn’t sure why. Please let this be the real man, not a momentary lapse in a great pattern of liberal nonsense!

I agree with KW; the foundation that allowed society to realize that slavery or genocide were wrong in the first place is rotting away. Without that foundation we’re pretty well hosed when things go bad again; and they will, history repeats itself, only the names and geography ever change.

Don’t live silently. Speak for truth. Speak for what is good and just and righteous in the eyes of the Creator. Speak even if you don’t think you’re being heard. Speak in love and understanding. Educate with compassion. Educate with honesty. Educate those who would know.
When you’re confronted by those who love ignorance; shake the dust from your feet and move on.
Don’t look to the sword as the first answer, but sell your cloak and by one, against the need to protect your life or the lives of others. Be ready to die that others my live. No greater love have we for another than that which would cause us to lay down our life for another.
Above all, trust in G-d’s grace and G-d’s plan; surrender to His perfect will. Accept that all things work together for good in Him and know that our prayers are answered, but not always granted. Sometimes, what is good in our eyes does not best advance the Kingdom.

Hey, Grandma, what’s the count now? How many murders of whites by blacks without any traction in the MSM?

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority?”
Wallis has this mostly right; but the timy little point he’s missing makes a world of difference.In Paul’s time, the authority was Rome. In America, in our time yet, the authority is the Constitution. Not men. Not Congress, the courts or even the current occupant of the White House, but the Constitution.
It is being undermined and revolted against by those who seek power for themselves. Resistance to those who would rebel against the Constitution is support of the Constitution.
Thanks... we do have doctrine.

I’ve noted that you enjoy quoting the bible, so, tell me; was Christ dishonest when he took on our sins? They weren’t His, but he took them on in the eyes of the Father as if they were. Just asking…

I don’t know anything about this young man’s theology or his relationship with Christ, but I can tell you that I whole heartedly disagree with your assessment of the situation.
In the act of giving money from his own wallet to replace what the blind man had lost, Joey became the model of Christ that all Christians should strive to be before the world; he took the loss on himself that was due another. Money was dropped and then stolen; the blind man wouldn’t have to taste that loss because Joey took it on himself, he accepted a penalty that wasn’t due him.
A lot of this like to talk about Justice; we should be glad that our G-d doesn’t hold us to that. Justice is getting what you’ve earned. Mercy is being spared what you deserve. Grace is being given what you can never be worthy of. Joey’s actions are the purest form of Grace; the blind man should have been out 20 bucks. By Joey’s grace, he’s not.
There was no lie here, just a fine young man taking the burden of another.

We’ve had Malamutes since we were first married and we’ve found them very protective of our kids. A trainer once told us that a) you don’t own a Malamute, you cohabitate with them and b) it’s OK, because they adopt the family as their pack.

The arrest of the Knights Templar is a well-documented event; the date is well established as a result. That it played a role -to whatever degree- in the birth of the Friday the 13th mythology makes far more sense than the point offered by this article.
First, there were only 12 guests; Christ was the host (no pun intended). Second, the early church wasted very little time replacing Judas (with Matthias, not Paul); had there been some fear around the number 13, they would not have done so. They knew Christ to be alive, replacing Judas would have again placed the total number (Master and disciples) at 13. Lastly, if we assume the total count to be all that matters, Judas would not have been the 13th guest. He was, by many accounts, older than the others, he was trusted as the group’s treasurer and in general had a role of importance in the group. He is counted last only after the fact by our perceptions of the events; not defending him, just saying…
Conversely, the Knights Templar were known from Scotland to Saudi Arabia; when they were betrayed by King Phillip, the news would have spread far and wide. The date of their fall would have been a major event, either seen as the betrayal of pious warrior-monks or the revelation of the corruption of the same. The fall of the Templar Preceptories would have been a pivot point in the world view of many.

I hate to be the one to say this, but by doing this in uniform, them folks are violating the UCMJ. As a members of the Armed Forces, you can attend politcal rallies, even speak at them, so long as you don’t do it in uniform. They have a right to speak, but this particular speech is not protected for them.
As to the lawfulness of their orders, no orders have yet been given, so that’s not a cover that will help them.
The problem facing us isn’t guns, race or even people. No, this issue is about actions. Guns are merely tools, used properly they feed families and defend the weak. People, regardless of race, aren’t evil; we’re merel fallen, broken and utterly incapable of being righteous on our own. Actions are where evil dwells. Actions are where we allow ourselves to become less than human, less than our potential.
There is no King in the land and each person does as is good in their own eyes.
Not covering this wouldn’t change a single thing; only when we look to our Creator as our Creator will we see our lives and our nation healed.

The last two groups of missionaries to come to our door both had African-American ladies in the mix. They were very polite and seemingly well educated; their manners and demeanor spoke well of their home life. I know one was from North Dakota, not sure where the other came from. We haven’t had any missionaries come calling in a year or so though; I guess if you lead a couple of their missionaries to the truth of the Gospel of Christ their leadership finally takes the church rectory off the visitation list…
