    Archaeological evidence is far simpler: Find for yourself resources about petroglyphs through out Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Sinai, … Middle East in general. Plenty of such, dating 5000, 6000, 7000,… BC throughout the region (North Africa and Middle East) show not only camels but orderly, linked, obviously in domesticated use camels. Hence the whole argument in this story is completely flawed – camels in the entire region were in domesticated use for millennia before dates in question.

    -Percentage of employed able adults at the time Obama took office vs. now. Even better, compared with the same period under Reagan. 7.8 million is inadequate at least.
    -Democrats fail to distinguish between “free market” and “fascist market” economy. Obamacare – fascist economy based. Not socialist, fascist.
    -Now to my fellow scientists: 97% “agree” on climate change is effect of above mentioned fascist ideology applied to a field where peer review rules and funding comes from the people in power. Against: a) Temperature records from Greenland and Antarctic ice – yes, we are warming over last 200 years or so… FROM deepest colds in last 10000 years, Little Ice Age. Despite this warming, we are currently still in 10% COLDEST years in last 10000 years. Published, peer reviewed, available for re-check from many sources. b) NASA/MIT study from 1990′s… during Earth warming MORE energy is returned to space. By default excluding with certainty any form of greenhouse effect, human caused or not. CO2 theory=greenhouse effect. Excluded by 8 years of published, peer reviewed NASA/MIT work. c) CERN 2001 Cloud experiment answers “what is warming Earth?” – higher efficiency of water vapor in atmosphere in using energy from higher energy particles to warm up Earth vs. from lower energy particles. In sync with result (b). CERN leaders literally BANNED interpretation of Cloud Exp. results. BANNED. 97% or what?

    Growing up in Communism I must say – they WILL try, not to kill it but redirect it. This whole specific case is all about that – City will light “Holiday tree” after all… Sad.
    What happened in Communist country of my origin? – We have had trees and decorations and Santa and gifts and celebrations… “New Year Tree”, Santa came on midnight of New Year, gifts were for New Year,… no mention of “Christmas” by name or true content. And after decades of indoctrinations it is hard for my mind to redirect those aspects back where they have came from – Santa and gifts and tree are New Year events for my mind. That is what these people are about – take Christ out of Christmas.
    Now it is interesting how believers responded… My memories of Christmas are colors of yellow, gold, brown. We kids couldn’t stay in bed ’till sunrise, eager to get up (and no, not get presents, no presents for Christmas) – but light-up oak branches at sunrise to welcome “Christmas baby” who brings good tidings and salvation to the World. We believed and felt blessed. Spirit of Charlie Brown Thanksgiving ep. Christmas celebrations unfolded with a (American) Thanksgiving tone too – big all family feast and thanks to and for the Christ. Decoration of gold ribbons, oak branches, straw on the floor and (oh my, what would the OSHA say!) walnuts on the floor.
    So, some older symbolism bubbled up and despite pagan origins took the mantle of carrying the most important – Christmas message.

    Another idiot who likely never fired a firearm in his life or attended or understood any firearm safety education: YOU DO NOT EVEN POINT A GUN IN GENERAL DIRECTION OF PEOPLE unless you are ready for deadly consequences. Just POINTING a gun at the minivan, never mind where he was aiming is a crime for which he should both serve time and never be a policeman ever. Just pointing, never mind firing in that direction placed kids in deadly danger.

    “It was obvious the cop was shooting for a tire..”- Have you ever in your life fired a firearm? Have you attended, never mind understood any gun safety training?! – You DO NOT point loaded gun, never mind shoot it in GENERAL DIRECTION of people, nevermind kids. Than to the point of impossibility to tell from angle seen where he was aiming. Impossible.
    She was a criminal. But she was driving away and have not killed anyone. Reasonable expectation of shot fired in the minivan direction is that kids could have been hit. Unacceptable to do. Beyond police state.

    Only if you consider humans somehow supernatural.
    The whole theory of evolution is all about power grab in Nature. Survival of the fittest and taking over habitats, adapting to them and changing them to that species liking while fighting others both for space and resources. Nature is not a bunch of species holding hands and singing. It is fight to death and domination 24/7. And no, we are not supernatural or somehow in charge or dropped here from some alien place. We are part of it. Killing deer for sustenance is better but if someone likes to (legally) shoot other species for natural instinct of fun – their choice and natural right. Biological right.

    No. There are no mandatory standardized classes to live, be free, exercise religion, freely speak your mind – and those are Constitutionally on par with the right to “bear arms”. You must understand difference between “freedom to do something” and “right to do something”.
    Yes, for all those rights YOU must be responsible. Not “Government must make you responsible”. And yes, with all those rights come dangers of application in an evil and wrong way (free speech for nazis?). But The Founders found more danger in limiting those rights in any way than from possible evil consequences.
    Existing laws cover consequences of misusing your right completely.
    What can be done is Gun Rights Community offering support. NOT Government mandating responsibility which is impossible. Gun seller voluntarily doing background check with, say NRA and gun buyer voluntarily accepting it. NRA has BOTH interest in firearm safety AND gun ownership. Government does not. New gun owner offered free firearm safety classes by, say NRA. Not bullied, not mandated, no Government involved. Community offering responsible support. That is proper.

    This was a payment. Primarily to McConnell. Same as with Mafia, doing a dirty deed is not enough to enslave into the system. There will be payment for it to complete the bond/enslavement. As for others, three categories: those who voted NO, those who (typically) didn’t even bother to read the bill and signed as told (slaves, too) and those who knew it but agree with organized Congressional Crime same as McConnell. Question is – will people in McConnell state take 2Bil bribe as sheeple who voted us into this mess over decades did in the past or have we woken up?

    This story must be presented to all those people who not only “MUST” adopt from foreign lands like China, Russia, Romania, Angola…. wherever – but also endlessly complain about adoption rules and laws there and demand USA involvement to pressure said countries about their own laws and problems.
    I do not have access but I bet Mr. Hallowell could do interview on this theme with, say Laura Inghram …

    @Locked – this law is not arbitrary. Studies spanning both different cultures and time (over last century) confirmed the same about human development, in particular ability to make sound judgment. By the Science, no human can, biologically developed ability to make sound judgments before the age of 16. None. Most of human population everywhere, across cultures and time acquire this ability by the age of 18. If a human have not acquired this ability by the age of 21 (and very few fail) – most likely biological factors prevent them from developing it ever. Science. Hence 16, 18 and 21 age limits in most civilized countries. Not by a whim of a bureaucrat but by a solid, tested science.
    One who have reached the age of consent (ability to make decision about having sex) must be always find criminal if engaging in sex with a person younger than that limit. Age difference is irrelevant. It could well be months. Law must be blind or we are nation of Men not laws. Sexual orientation is also irrelevant – this is a question of mental and physical abuse which spans all of them.

    But society in general must push against such obvious inappropriate sexualization of children. Both towards makers of inappropriate stuff and towards careless parents. Social pressure does unbelievable things and in this case, exactly in opposite direction – Progressive mantra is “everything goes”. Availability of such costumes and neighborhood “looking away” instead of saying something will lead to changed perception and soon laws will reflect Justice Ginsburg that 12 years old can make sexual activity judgements and that child younger than 2 yrs has no human rights… Slope is slippery.
    Yes, parents choice is ultimate. No, society should not stay mute against wrong choices. There must be socially unacceptable behaviors.

    Problem with that is a) It is changeable by operation b) Few medical cases exist of both having wrong match of external and internal parts as well as having both types of parts. Problem with Progressive PC society is that it ignores the Science when convenient while touting itself as “strictly Scientific Society”.
    So, what should be Scientific, Societal and Legal definition of biological sex of the person and LGBT people? – Sex of a human is scientifically defined by presence or absence f Y chromosome. So, you have Y chromosome, you are scientifically male and Legal as well as Societal definition should match it. And guess what – such definition is in sync with most religious teachings as well. Now, if you are one sex by that definition and other in your mind (as the person in this story) a) You have mental problem, similar to that of a person thinking that he is Napoleon or a Chicken b) Society should not mistreat mental problem of “Napoleon”, “Chicken” or a “female in male body” by accepting their delusion. Nor by mistreating them. Not mistreating either socially or by allowing them to mutilate themselves (same as no doctor imagines that the treatment for a person thinking that he is a chicken is to surgically implant them with a beak and feathers). Similarly, acceptance is not healthy for either side for LG part of LGBT as it is not OK to take person as mentally healthy if he/she eats dirt instead of food, borne like that or not.

    From the Pope Frances himself, no MSM/Blaze interpretations: Francis said. “We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel”
    This is direct reflection of Jesuit Machiavellian Ideology: ends justify the means. Pope Francis wants society to like the Church. He wants more people in the Church. For those ends he is ready to turn blind eye on direct and clear word of God, on direct foundations of the Church.
    Hence, we will get more people in the House of God but the house will miss its foundations. Inevitable consequence of his actions is collapse of that House, hurting all inside. Like the house of cards. He mistakes surface for foundation.

    As a person who have studied Quaran a bit of expansion on your thinking: While Bible and most other religious books/religions typically do not direct consequence of non-belief or apostasy to this life here and now but to the afterlife, Islam is clear in giving different treatment, rights and consequences to non-believers in this life, here and now. As you say, in other religions including Christianity people would do contrary to the teachings in the name of teachings. However, in the case of Islam and Islam extremism that is not the case. Islamic extremists are just ready to strictly enforce their teachings to the point and harm others even versus general societal norms.
    For those who have not seen a Quran in their life – part of it clearly, without doubt states that Mohammed married a girl aged 7 years and have had sex with her when she was 9 years old. Current societal norms label that as pedofilia.

  • September 11, 2013 at 4:30pm

    And this march was directed in exactly such way: organizing Muslim groups demand special, extra-protected status for Islam vs. other religions and general population. Add to that them NOT protesting Islamic extremism but giving excuses and conspiracy theories blaming others for it…

    Technologically speaking there is absolutely nothing preventing them picking up these and storing them on their servers. Apple OS is proprietary. We simply can’t say what it does. Even their recent abuses in similar vein were detected only and only because Apple forgot to encrypt data sent from the phone (so, wise people looked and found it that way). What is going on on their servers is also completely private and proprietary. Same applies for completely possible sharing with Fed’s – if they do it in proper secrecy, we won’t ever know.
    Problem is that we allow ourselves to purchase these devices and services (Google) for their glitter, ignoring the fact that we become merchandise to be bought and sold and as such – without any free market influence. If we elected proper Government leaders over decades and purchased/used technology with wary eye – this would have been stemmed in the root. Still some chance if we kick Progressive thought from our Government as it thrives in exactly these surroundings.

  • September 10, 2013 at 5:54pm

    No, if we elect Constitutionally minded representatives (and first of all go to elections…). There is natural and obvious extension of 4t amendment to new technology, if done – all these worries cease both on Corporate and Governmental side. Example: Fed’s still can’t in any way shape or form open and read your (paper) letter without specific, public Court order aimed at the individual with individual proof. Or go to bookstore and/or library and ask for list of books purchased or read (yes with specific, individual, public Court order)… Same easily can be extended to modern electronic media (and should have been if we elected moral instead of promises and gimme’s).

    Now that they purchased a cable channel not much can be done. However, God works in a mysterious ways. I am on Verizon FIOS. Before they moved to AlGoreChannel – Verizon actually, voluntarily carried them in my default lineup (I and many other for certain complained, but it was their decision). Since they “upgraded” to AlGore – I lost them! (His old channel is not a part of basic service, quite the contrary – it is a part of the most premium tiers). So, in a way, AJ got a foothold but lost voluntary ideological promotion by Progressive Media.

    As a scientist and Christian article like this particularly affects me and I see the one and only source for it: lack of education.
    Concisely: Religion, any religion is not based on scientific axioms nor is concerned with scientific subjects. Neither its methods nor subjects are scientific. It is concerned with transcendental. Opposite goes to science – none of its subjects or methods are transcendental or even concerned by it. Transcendental need not apply. If it can’t be measured and tabulated, it does not matter or exist for the science.
    Public on both sides of the issue is simply uneducated that it makes absolutely no sense to address any religious issue from the standpoint of science or vice-verse. Even on issues that both apparently cover (creation?) they simply speak of completely different subject and concern. (I personally blame lack of religious education in our school system as it would solve a lot of this).
    So, either side: please stop even thinking that you can address religion scientifically or science religiously. Attempt to scientifically disprove religion is as valid as attempt to patent instant telecommunications based on our belief that we can speak in such manner to the God.

    Having real life experience with Muslims in Communism I may tweak your opinion a bit: President Obama is Marxist with Muslim life experience and background. He is ready to cut any slack and spin for Muslims (and not for any other religion) but deep inside he is not a believer of any kind but plain and simple materialist Marxist. Have seen many (both ordinary and politicians) people fitting his profile and their actions are inevitably similar. (His “Christian Church” attendance is a Marxist Church attendance, what have been preached there for decades have nothing to do with Christianity).
