Once we can look past the human toll and how many have lost their lives; I continue to pray that it is few. That is the second tragedy. Some of the building in that region have been standing for the better part of a thousand years, and still are/were useful for something other than a monument.

Two Muslims from Bangladesh, including an Inman who ministers to Bangladeshi refugees are shot and killed by a gunman wearing shorts and having medium color skin. Plus both victims were shot in ambush which suggests some knowledge of their usual movements. The Muslim crowd immediately cries “hate crime” suggesting a white American shooter.
From the news, we know that there is a lot of sectarian religious killing in Bangladesh. If I were a cop I’d be looking in the direction of conflict within the Bangladeshi refugee community. Possibly a radicalized youth?

A series of bombings clearly targeted at the Thai economy. The Thai people are good allies and relatively prosperous. Yet they are trashed by the knownothings on the Blaze.

A question about Hillary’s integrity? There’s no question, she has none.
Joint injuries are the worst.
I hope he has a speedy recovery, but think his weight lifting days might be over.

Keeping in mind the terrible slaughter of innocents in Nice, I believe that in the near future ISIS and BLM will demonstrate their mutual hatreds during a demonstration punctuated by a car bomb or some such similar attack the Islamists have perfected.

What the hell are these people thinking? He killed five police officers as they attempted to protect protestors, most of whom were black. How do you sugar coat that?

Away what you will about guns, they were merely a tool here. The root cause was and is Islam.
Totally agree, and i didnt do a good job stating all the facts needed to combat the usual narritive. The media will focus most on the weapons, and who the other nut killed that pop singer, then anti gay, then mentally ill, then maybe possibly islam.
Yes Islam is the true cause and driving force, he could have use anything to cause mass harm to people.

As vile as Roofe is, he will have his supporters in dark corners who will come out in some manner during and before the trial. That’s what the Democrats are counting on. They have already identified Roofe with Republicans in general and Trump in particular by using progressive internet trolls.
Don’t get me wrong, what this creep did is about as evil as it gets. To sit and pretend to pray with sincere Christians while, all the time planning to kill them, is as coldly evil as it gets. He should have already been tried and executed.

If you listen to Hillary closely, it’s not just the Second Amendment that is in deadly peril.
“If it is a constitutional right, then it, like every other constitutional right, is subject to reasonable regulations, and what people have done with that decision is to take it as far as they possibly can and reject what has been our history from the very beginning of the republic, where some of the earliest laws that were passed were about firearms,” Clinton said.””
Here comes regulation of speech, particularly political speech. “Hate Speech” covers a wide variety speech. The Clintons have some history here. Search and seizure, self incrimination and others are equally endangered. The unanswered question I have,”Is Trump any better?”
I still believe this election is a "heads" progressive/communist win and "tails" progressive/communist win.
I still believe this election is a "heads" progressive/communist win and "tails" progressive/communist win.
"Here comes regulation of speech, particularly political speech."
Weirdly, I haven't heard Clinton propose anything to that effect.
I heard it from Trump, though.

Seeing as how half the donations were made before the WP article, I’d guess you’re practicing gottcha journalism yourself. These days the facts are meaningless, it’s all in to presentation, implication and accusation.
You're right....but HIS WAS NOT. He didn't give one dime of what he said he had.

Good answer. Mine would be, “So, Jessie James wasn’t the first person to rob a bank.”

The evolutionary history of the human species clearly indicates the “starting a family” and particularly the family connotation, marks a prolonged and still developing series of events that mark our differences as an intelligent species. Without a FAMILY, large brained children would never be nurtured, protected and raised to survive. The societies wouldn’t have developed relatively non violent tribes and so on. Removing males from the family, promoting alternative groupings and discouraging “breeding” all look forward to the death of our species.

It’s not a clash of atheism vs belief, it’s a clash between demonstrable fact and Biblical allegory.
who demonstrated the ark couldn't have been built......Seem like these folks built a lot of amazing structures, we find them everywhere

I have come very late to a realization of what has happened in both parties as they have learned to attract loyal supporters. The successful candidates have been authoritarian. Most of us recognized the authoritarian streak in Obama who doesn’t care about legal and constitutional limitations even when they touch civil liberties. The only one that remains standing is the second amendment. That’s because allmost all of the factions today don’t feel comfortable being unarmed in the presence of their equally angry opponents.
Cruz is a now almost extinct constitutionalist. Oh, many others repeat the mantra of constitutionalism but what they really want is to win, get things done, build the wall, erect tariffs to protect business who are automating but staying domestic, abandon our allies (let them defend themselves), get rid of certain “kinds” of immigrants, and so on. The voters are as authoritarian minded as are Trump, Clinton and Sanders.
Cruz is a NeoCon shill, not a constitutionalist. He is also a Cuba-Canadian and not qualified to hold the office of president.

As an old man, I’m amazed at the distain and distrust the great majority have toward scientists and science. The return on investment for scientific investment has been monumental in the ways it has imporoved an lengthened our lives. I was born into a world that boasted it’s modernity. We had 25 cycle electricity, magneto phones, no television and limited radio due to the location, and many other inconveniences that would be considered intolerable today. Most of the life improvements have been the result of a collaboration between capitalism and science (often government funded). Yet only 19 % of the population accept most scientific gains in knowledge. Hostility and hatred are more the norm than the exception.
Yes, like the altering of Soy to grow in Africa and the effect it has had on newborn males drinking GMO soy related formula? I believe Genetic Modifications is a science?
You are comparing apples to oranges. We love solid science that develops products and goes by scientific laws. We are skeptical of so called "science" that has an agenda which is not science at all. I love the CERN. Although, even the CERN theorizes about science that goes by one's world view rather than innocent experimentation and observation. They assume dark matter and dark energy even though it is not seen nor detected. Let's get rid of that blinder and go with what they truly, objectively observe.
One of the biggest is when the climate data was fudged to mimic the global warming model. When this was found out most people now look at most scientists as being unethical. That is a shame because most are not.

Another monument to something that never happened. Allegorical text of the Bible is not literally true but it has lessons to teach. People believe in the tales told through text, carving and painting in Hindu Temples and of the Ramakien in Buddhist Temples. Buddhism is based on the life and teachings of an actual, historical person but most of the historical tales related in the murals and reliefs never happened but they are intermixed with depictions of actual events.
I don’t want to condem any of this but it’s necessary to keep grounded in what has happened an why. The geological history of the earth is written in the rocks and formations and we had best not deny it but should study it.
It's also not original to the Bible. It is stolen from the Epic of Gilgamesh.
Please provide evidence that the biblical flood account is an allegory. You will have to begin with the text itself, giving evidence from it that demands we see the account as allegorical.
I agree that we can determine a great deal by examining geology, and by observing natural processes in operation today.
Studying these is critical

Trump’s badmouthing and trash talking works very well. He’s likely to win the nomination! The Trumpetts attack tactics work to perfection. Oppose Trump and pay the consequences.
@Sagittarius – Actually, that sounds a little winnerish to me. This is what Republicans usually don’t understand. That’s how people win crowded primary contests. Always has, always will. Democrats usually have the big slugfests and wind up with the winner of bare-knuckled brawls who are hardened for combat. They end up with scrappy guys who fight bloody trench warfare and use everything to their advantage. Look at Bill Clinton and Obama. Hate them for their evil ways, but you have to give even the Devil his due. These guys always got their way, for their ability to turn their enemies against each other. It has been done in both parties for at least 150 years, but the Republicans keep sending up these milquetoast losers who won’t take the fight to the bad guys, and I’m sick of it. Now, all I’m hearing from the Cruzers is that Trump is “waging a war on women”, or “he’s a racist demagogue”, or “he’s a nativist / nationalist with fascist tendencies” (all actual quotes from people posting on the Blaze). I’d expect this crap from Daily Kos or Media Matters, but it looks stupid coming from so-called “conservatives”. Take this politically correct bovine excrement and fertilize the back forty with it, but don’t fling it at each other. And I will keep saying it: Cruz will be mathematically eliminated Tuesday, and at a “contested convention”, the Republican establishment will NEVER let Cruz get the nomination. Go in with Trump and the big win! Or you'll wind up having to choose between Hillary and Jeb.
Read above response to KS person.

Bad move for the rocket scientists, if any are still alive. Try again? Okay if any are left.
