That makes some sense to me and I think that is how we indeed decided to organize our society. But doesn’t this imply that we chose to supersede God’s law/natural law with our government?

What about rights? Don’t they come from God and, therefore, universal?
 November 25, 2015 at 5:00pm
True…although has nothing to do with my question.

I am am no longer religious myself, so I have a question for those who are. If our rights and laws come from God, how do you justify applying them only to Americans? For example, shouldn’t any ‘illegal immigrant’ have equal rights since you can’t be an illegal person and we are all God’s children. This would make trumps campaign quite ungodly
Our laws do not come from God...if they did they would be perfect, but as abortion shows they are not...Based on God's laws, but not his laws.
none of God's laws say other people have a right to steal your stuff, Jean.
You seriously are asking this???
Fair question. The answer is contained in the declaration of independance. While mentioning natural law this document also proclaims that governments are instituted among men. It also recognizes the right of people to dissolve a relationship which bands them to another group. In other words the size amd scope of the relationship between a group of people and their government is determined by the people being governed. The rules for joining thos exclusive club are susposed to be determined by congress. Those that try to join the club outside these laws (illegals) should have no standing.
We are not all God's children. Some of us are just God's creation.
You must be a little dense.
Eastinfection is right.
But....if you want to be an ignoramus on purpose

Sure, except there will be a trial, the video will be released, nobody in this case is Muslim, and there’s no death penalty in Illinois.
Otherwise, spot-on analysis, guy.
Wow, lighten up Jean. Don’t you ever make light of the ridiculous, or are you always so serious? And for a state without the death penalty, a whole lot of people seem to die violently there. Just sayin’

Good for you! My kingdom is overrun by hoards of toddler invaders when I try to establish dominion on my throne. Heavy is the head that wears the crown…
If it wasn’t for the French, we would still be speaking English today

“Eye for an eye” was not permission to get even when wronged. It was a restraint on vengance…you ONLY get to take an eye for an eye. You don’t get to take a life for it.
But lessons on restraint are lost on most of us.
Jeanr with the script lingo. Not odd. What does it matter now when you hire a Coke dealer and pot head? Twice, no less. At least Rush fronted his own huh? Not dingle Barry, still.
Huh?His own oxy dealer? Luckily the war on drugs i s simmering down.

I agree this is a bad move. We haven’t actually declared war since 1942. We the people need to bear the responsibility for this travesty. We have failed to keep both the President and Congress in check and our own bloodlust clouds our judgement at times too. We just want to start bombing…and damn that constitution that might slow us down.

Just historical fact to frefute a false claim. You may want to ignore history, but it exists anyway…even when it doesn’t fit your rigid ideology. The offer for contrary facts still stands.

Bums- you don’t seem to understand how federal budgeting is done. The president has always laid out the spending plan and then Congress reviews and then there are compromises and ultimately a vote. There would be no way for a body of people to be able to create a coherent spending plan annually

If they are noted, then note them here. You are claiming facts without evidence

He’s a resource officer…meaning he’s already on campus.
So one technique is you remove the class, which is her audience. She’s less likely to be as defiant without an audience. Is that more difficult than just tossing her? Sure. But if getting that phone was so important to the school at that time, then that’s one way to proceed

Are you serious? Are you really asking for remedial child management basics in a comment section?
The first rule is you are the adult….act like it and be in control of yourself
