    The fact is that conservative or tea party law firms are likely to be viewed as hostile or stupid by authorities in Massachusetts, while Professor Dershowitz is likely to be given more respect and deference than he deserves by those same authorities.

    Besides, all politics aside, Dershowitz is one of the finest legal minds practicing today, and generally would resign and recuse himself rather than soil his reputation by wrongly siding with the state.

    Finally, this case is about JUSTINA, not the lawyers or the doctors. If he can bring her home again, I don’t care if his name is Woodrow Wilson the Fifth, or if he is the Chairman of the Massachusetts chapter of the Democratic Socialist Party.

    So, explain to me again why TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau has been sentenced to 10 years in a Federal Prison?

    Wasn’t it is large part for arguing against the Federal Government’s dietary guidelines?
    I don’t know if Kevin Trudeau was right or wrong, a charlatan or a visionary. Maybe he is a combination of all those things.

    What I do know is that I am very uncomfortable living in a USS of Amerika where dissent is punishable by ten years in the Federal pen. Since when did it become a Federal offense to have a different interpretation of scientific or government guidelines?

    Progressives call people who disagree with “settled science” names like “flat earthers”, again twisting and perverting history. The real flat earthers believed the “settled science” of their day, and they turned dissenters over to the Spanish Inquisition to get their minds right….or kill them.

    Socrates, DaVinci, Gallileo, and Copernicus all went against the settled science of their day and were punished for it, But they were right. This is getting REALLY REALLY scary.

    It is a “very poor forgery” that the best scientific and artistic minds of skeptics have been unable to come close to duplicating, or even effectively explaining in over two centuries.
    Besides the Bible tells us God used burning bushes, a whales belly, and the jawbone of a donkey to transmit messages. CLEARLY whether it is real, or you are right and it is fake, the Shroud definitely has a powerful message.

    Bill Nye, Dr. Oz, and Mister Wizard use models all the time to illustrate concepts that can’t be easily envisioned by the audience. Some of the models are fairly accurate, and some of them are just plain silly, and some of them are altered by new information.

    The Bible is of necessity a cliff notes version of an old multipurpose grammar school textbook. It was written to teach, law, ethics, morality, history, biology, literature and a lot of other things to bedouin sheep herders.

    Think explaining quantum physics and genetics to an 8 year old.

    If Bill Nye can use a firecracker to represent the Big Bang, then God and his ghost writers are entitled to use “let there be light.”

    Human beings are clearly not made out of clay, or we would be silicone based creature, instead of carbon based. But if you are trying to describe an ooze of proteins and amino acids to a six year old, mud or clay is going to come really close.

    Finally, if God spelled out too many details, we would no longer have free will, and for some reason known only to Him, He wants us to figure this stuff out ourselves.

    On the right hand side of the list of stories on the Blaze, they have this new thing called a “Scroll Bar”. With this clever device, you can roll right on past stories you don’t wish to read…try it sometime.

    I fail to see where the two interpretations are mutually exclusive, I also think that assuming that your interpretation is the only true and correct interpretation is the kind of self-aggrandizement that the book of acts discusses when it discusses Herod Antipas being eaten by worms.

    He wasn’t eaten for condemning John the Baptist or unveiling Salome, or condemning Jesus to a hideous death on the cross. No, he was eaten by worms for trying to convince the people that he was God.

    Progressive formula for success:

    Run one progressive against 8 conservatives. The conservatives then split the vote and find the most progressive thing about the other seven to destroy the confidence of the conservative voter in their “true conservatism”.

    Finally, after the field is whittled down to two or three conservatives, who are hopelessly behind in delegate counts, then the mainstream media polishes them off with polling data that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are not electable.

    So…this is what I am looking for in a candidate: I want the person who believes in the greatness of God, the Constitution, and Capitalism, and who does not cut down their primary rivals, but rather proves by word and deed that they are the person best prepared to tackle the job.

    I want policy statements, and possible cabinet appointments and a record. That’s all. Once they have their bona fides, if they need to attack, they shouldn’t be afraid to, but they should use it only as a last resort.

    The Gideon Society, which provides Bibles to hotels, bed and breakfasts, and other overnight lodging establishments free of charge, was actually founded by two Wisconsin men traveling on business. So this is a sad day.

    However, I have a compromise: If I were the manager of the lodging, I would offer the atheists the opportunity to place in each room, free of charge, a ream of 90% post-consumer recycled printer paper with an attached cover sheet that reads “Atheist Manifesto” if the Atheists drop them off at the housekeeping department.

    In fact, a shelf of free books on comparative religion and philosophy in each room would be a great idea. Just prepare to have spare books for the ones that are stolen and defaced, and the adherents must provide the books to the hotels, free of charge.

    Oh, I think I’d vote for the “climate scientists” who are trapped in an antarctic Ice floe, by excessive thick sheets of global warming.

    Josephus did not recognize a place called Palestine. Rome did not recognize a place called Palestine (Pontius Pilate was the Governor of Judea). The Gospel writers did not recognize a place called Palestine. So Abbas fails on that count.

    I suppose it is possible to make a case that the Zealotes and the Essenes, and the Samaritans may have been progenitors of modern day Palestinians, but it is up to Abbas to make that case, and I don’t think he even tries.

    Palestinians and Israelis are so genetically similar, that the Quoran and the Bible insist that they had a common father…Abram nee. Abraham, so it is not impossible to see a physical difference. There are some pretty significant cultural differences though.

    I have often wondered if Mr. Abbas is not a direct descendant of an important New Testament figure…
    When Jesus was condemned to crucifixion, Pilate offered clemency to one of two individuals for the Passover holiday. One was Yeshua Bar-Josef, or Jesus, the son of Joseph. He also offered it to a Zealot-a well known political activist and anti-Roman terrorist….named Simon Bar-Abbas or Simon son of Abbas. Now known as Barabbas. Very curious.

    If we would have stuck to established politicians who knew how the game is played, we would not have ahd an American Revolution, a Republican Party, an abolitionist movement a civil rights movement, women’s sufferage, Solidarity, or an end to Apartheid.

    If there is a grand plan for the Republican Party to stop the radical transformation of America? If so, please let us know. In other words..LEAD or get the H E double toothpicks out of the way!

    Finally, I’d really like to see Scarborough do a book in which he explains to us how he can call himself a conservative, and how moderate juggernauts like McCain, Romney, Dole, and George HW Bush failed to appeal to ANY identifiable constituency short of the “anybody who’s not a Democrat” crowd.

    What Scarborough wants is Democrat lite…In an election between someone who promises you everything, and someone who promises the exactly the same only slower and less, it is remarkable that the moderate Republicans have done as well as they have.

    But if they had a plan, ANY plan they might keep power. I suggest they get working on that right away, because they need a platform for that big Whig convention in two years.

    Meanwhile, if conservatives meet them with the Constitution, liberty, and reason, I think the Scarboroughs of this world will fold up their big tent and go home, because they have no answers.

    Did you get one of those Reader’s Digest Condensed Bibles that left out the story of Lazarus, the Centurion’s daughter, the transfiguration on Mount Moriah where Jesus, Moses and Abraham appeared together?

    Oh, yeah, and there was that whole resurrection on Easter Sunday thing, and the appearance of Jesus to the apostles and to Paul on the road to Damascus…

  • October 27, 2013 at 12:31am

    Please explain Luke chapter 23, verse 43:

    And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    Now, either the thief got a special deal not available to ANYONE else, or a fairly significant quote attributed to Jesus has been completely mistranslated, or Jesus lied to make him and the rest of us feel better.

    Also, I hate to point this out, but you are a part of the WHOLE WORLD, even if you are not of the world. Therefore, you too have been deceived. I also fail to see the relevance of a discussion of Satan’s punishment (Revelation 12) to the ultimate disposition of individual humans, but perhaps I have not achieved the esoteric level of spirituality that some folks have attained.

    Or, perhaps it’s time to re-read those mail order bible tracts…

    We already have very sensible laws against killing people in this country.

    How’s that working out for ya?

    We have also seen mass death from fuel oil and fertilizer, airplanes flown into buildings, pressure cookers and cars plowing into crowds.

    Should we ban fuel oil and fertilizer, airplanes, pressure cookers and cars?

    And suppose, for instance, someone were to launch an electro-magnetic pulse attack against the US and then send an army to clean up afterwards. I hope I have a good vantage point to watch you fight them off with pointed sticks.

    Laws do not prevent evil people from arming themselves to the teeth. They do provide an excellent deterrent to being able to defend ourselves if we are law abiding citizens. Perhaps that is your “reasonable” goal?

    History teaches us one thing…in an unbalanced world balanced people wind up dead…and dead in extremely unpleasant ways. Some day we will beat our swords into plowshares and our knives into pruning hooks, but until that day arrives…

    1100 Californians have been killed with guns ( Really? Where is that number from?). Mr. Urbanski, you should not let that phrase go unchallenged. That is old school, main stream media propaganda. Here’s what is missing:

    1. How many were suicides? (And who are we to stand in the way of Californians who wish to reduce their carbon footprint permanently?)

    2. How many were accidents? ( Instead of demonizing firearms, and terrorizing students who might think of using one, perhaps more gun safety courses might help…especially if these common core zombie teachers can figure out how to teach ANYTHING anymore.)

    3. How many were “justifiable homicides.” (Nothing irritates me more than having a perpetrator counted among the “victims” if he happens to eat a lead sandwich at the scene.)

    4. Finally, and most importantly, of the remaining deaths, how many were from the guns that would be outlawed by this legislation? (and would outlawing said weapons really and truly keep them out of the hands of outlaws?).

    If you leave a statement like “1100 deaths” to stand on its own, it reinforces the gun Nazi argument for free, and we really can’t afford to let that happen anymore.

    Does the name Rube Goldberg ring any bells?

    Here is a very simple strategy I have devised to eliminate Obamacare, while not being “bad guy” who shuts down the government…….

    House Republicans need to use the Cloward and Piven strategy.

    Send the Senate a very clean budget bill, with one amendment….Obamacare MUST be implemented as written….all exemptions, postponements and delays ( illegally) signed by the executive branch shall be immediately repealed and rescinded…particularly those impacting all Federal government workers.

    This should cause the Obamacare system to collapse, and do maximum damage to the Democrats who wrote the bill, in time for 2014 elections.

    Will the Republicans have the guts to do it?

    You want Obamacare? Fine. We’ll GIVE you Obamacare……

    Keith Ellison is Minnesota’s practicing Muslim Congressman.

    I am sure that he will get to the bottom of this.

    “I’ve got the eye of the tiger, I am the champion, and you’re going to hear me roar!”

    Yeah, what a dumb thing to play for a team of Bengal tigers before they go out onto the field. What were they thinking? (sarcasm alert)

    I have a suspicion that at least 50 percent of the posters to this site didn’t even listen to the words. (Although I do admit that Katy Perry in a sarong is a bit distracting…)

    Now, if they had used “I kissed a girl”, I might understand…

    There is one MAJOR issue with term limits for Congress.

    The average Congressperson could not find their gluteus maximus without a Google map. Just watch them at work and you’ll know it’s true. They are pretty, handsome, and some can speak effectively, and they are GREAT at raising campaign funds. Some are literally brain-injured, and it doesn’t matter because they are one in 535.

    So who does run the country? PHILIP DRU CONGRESSIONAL STAFFER. Phillip is the one who is assigned to Jeff Flake, to help him find his way around the Capitol, and become a more effective legislator.
    Philip writes “no child left behind” because Teddy probably couldn’t have written a grocery list, and that was before he got sick.

    Philip doesn’t party with millionaires, he parties with other bureaucrats, and assists their agencies with acquiring more power. He also shields his boss from useful criticism and dangerous Tea Party ideals.
    He answers the phone and handles constituent service, so his boss doesn’t have to deal with “smelly tourists.” Philip is generally a party aparatchik and spy.

    And Philip will still be there when Congressman Featherhead is term limited out. Then he will have a fresh batch of morons to mold in is own very progressive image.

    TERM LIMIT THE STAFF.
