    Seems like a cavalier attitude that may not consider other factors, like increasing the likelihood of high-risk pregnancies if they manage to get pregnant at all. You can’t freeze your hormonal profile and how a young female body responds to pregnancy vs an older female body. Good for you if you have the money to brute force it, but it still increases the risk to the child.
    I understand wanting to take measures to heed the call to be a mother if you haven’t found the right person and feeling time slip away, but for careers? That’s just not wanting to give your child the gift of your youth. Child is not priority number 1, they’re just another milestone in the program. I speak as a parent who wishes they’d done more with the free years before having a child, but I don’t regret it one moment.

    This guy isn’t the “point man” who fired the first shot into UBL. He was one of the two, along with “Mark Owen” that came in immediately after that and shot him while he was squirming on the ground when they had entered the room after point man. His account in the Esquire piece is embellished to indicate he was the first one to shoot UBL. Even fellow SEALs call Owen’s account way more credible than O’Neil’s.

    He seems to have served well, but couldn’t resist the temptation to embellish and gloat, so much so he was reprimanded by command for running his mouth at a Virginia Beach bar when they got back from the mission. I’ll watch just to see if he sticks to his story or backtracks.

    I don’t oppose OC legislation. I agree it should be left up to the individual, and it depends on the weapon and overall context of where and when, but my biggest fear is to have my weapon taken from me.

    The deterrence factor only deters the marginally inclined criminal element, which could be deterred by other means (situational awareness, basic personal security measures). The determined criminal element will view it as an opportunity, will have as a priority to dispossess you from your gun and will calculate a way to get the drop on you to get it. Where I come from, you’re likely to get held up for your gun when you get to the parking lot and end up on with blood trickling from your head front page next day. That’s not and episode of 24; that’s reality where they have one of the highest per-capita crime rates in the US. I got tired of seeing that and moved.

    I like the principled chivalry of the past, but I’ll stick to opening people’s doors for them. OC is fine for marching to the capitol steps, not necessarily when stepping out to the gas station. At that point I need every advantage I can retain because I’m not out looking for a fight, and “they” are.

    I understand freedom and the second amendment and all, but, I don’t feel the need to show my weapon, and in fact I think it to be a tactical disadvantage. To quote Doug Marcaida “A weapon should be felt, not seen.”

    Although I’m highly suspicious of the supposed “calibration errors” that are happening all too often and only seem to favor democrats, this particular one in Texas seems to be a software error. I write software and this one might just be a legit malfunction. That looks like a rendering error up at the top.

    It looks like someone is continually sending “Undo” commands, and it’s apparently not her. Superficially, I would say someone’s got positive control of her computer, or at the very least a virus is doing its thing. It would take serious computer forensics to investigate the source of those commands within a few days of the event, to make sure that any logs have not been flushed out by the system. It can only keep logs for so long before deleting them. Her router’s logs could also be a good source of forensic data because it could detect things like snooping or redirecting certain ports, IP ping inquiries, etc.

    I thought the same, and it seems like this zone should be larger. An out of control rocket could definitely spew some debris out far enough to reach out and touch this pilot. In fact, I used to be able to see the Cape Canaveral/KSC launch pads from a Cessna 172 at a few thousand feet flying out of Titusville. I would say I am not comfortable flying during a launch, even at Titusville’s distance from the pads which is further away than this aircraft appears to be.

    Um… I too hate this muslim outreach nonsense, but in this case this was a privately developed launch vehicle from Orbital Sciences.

    I wouldn’t be laughing if I had a panicky individual running at me with a loaded gun and most likely a finger on the trigger. Did you see how many times the camera man got muzzle swept? I’ve had enough of these scares with noobs renting guns at the range it brings bad memories.

    Blight? Having poor judgement on methods and losing sight of priorities is a natural consequence of being a flawed human tasked with a calling such as pastoring. As the grandson of a pastor, I understand what it is to know the man behind the pulpit and seeing him stumble with the load at times. It is a heavy charge and we as his family had to bear the burden at times too.

    I never heard him pervert the Gospel like Bell, Osteen, Dollar, etc. He has been deferential to Jesus throughout the years. There are years’ worth of sermons on the website and you will not find another idol in place of Jesus in any one of them. Unorthodox? Yes. Controversial? For some, yes. Doctrine, style and methods will always be debated. Lapses in judgement are bigger and louder when you’re center stage.

    He will indeed stand before God and give an accounting, but so will the stone throwers and busybodies, whose deeds will pale in comparison to his, even counting his foul-ups. Those who have no ministry to mind will be busy attacking him, while digging their own graves, and that is just as sad as the original situation.

    It’s possible and you could argue evident he got his priorities messed up and got careless. This is exactly why the bible shows us the unvarnished truth of its characters. God works through flawed vessels regardless of failures. There are no heroes to be found but God Himself.

    Yes you missed something. He hired a firm to help publicize the book (not uncommon), but he was careless and did not check into which methods they implemented to help the book get out there. Turns out, this firm used shady tactics to increase the book’s ratings.

    Maybe this incident was an early indication as to the kinds of threats they would be getting. If they’ve had to move three times, then that’s taking measures. He says he was not happy with the idea, but trying to preserve some kind of normalcy for your children through a tough time I can understand.

    Lastly I have a hard time believing that the people he offended in his church are now dedicating their lives to taking revenge with violence. These are crimes of opportunity from people who are joining the “hate Mark Driscoll” bandwagon that has come as a result of the media circus that has formed around this issue by other opportunists in the media.

    Normal, sane, socially functional people would settle differences and resolve these issues with communication and understanding that is directed towards reconciliation and healing. People who have been directly affected by this situation would preferably be getting counseling and addressing the issue through the appropriate accountability channels and then moving on, possibly to another church, etc. Not airing their dirty laundry out to whoever wants a juicy headline, and definitely not throwing rocks, spreading rusty nails, or phoning in threats. Scumbags do that.

    C’mon, it’s not necessarily political correctness. It appears to be consistency with their values, like a Christian baker not wanting to bake a cake for a homosexual couple’s wedding if the baker opposes homosexuality. We don’t want them shouted down for sticking to their principles at a significant cost to them, do we? So why shout down CVS for doing the same? Maybe they’ll be doing the same for alcohol to, in due time. So what? Stumble up to the 7-Eleven to booze up, and you’ll be fine and happy. Let’s be consistency in this idea of choice and people will embrace the idea of freedom.

    The sheer ignorance of comments from patriots at every article with the word “drone” in it is astounding. The technology itself is not the problem. In fact, it has great potential to help in many aspects of modern life. It’s the people that are entrusted with the technology that are the problem. Basically we have a lack of understanding on the one side, and lack of integrity on the other side.

    So let me propose a strictly rhetorical argument here. If someone were to walk up to him and stab him dead, is he dead when the stabber thinks he’s dead? Or maybe when the coroner gets to the scene and declare him dead? How does that one work?

    If the media had any guts they would ask the President why someone who thinks we have a “liberal democracy” instead of a constitutional republic should represent us at the U.N.

    It seems that way initially, but when you study the scriptures you will find that Jesus had no human control of many of the events in his life and death that were predicted in Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc. Like being spit on, beaten, crucified. There are many more examples of this.

    Proverbs 26:25-27 (New International Version)

    25 Though their speech is charming, do not believe them,
    for seven abominations fill their hearts.
    26 Their malice may be concealed by deception,
    but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.
    27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it;
    if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.

    Stood next to her at Orlando airport the other day and I wanted to recommend she get another makeover like the one she got last year so she wouldn’t look nearly as repulsive.

    We gotta be careful with that one. Looney libs might want to argue that they only survived because he only had 10 shots, because of course that 11th shot was the one that was going to do the trick.

    Look, liberal humanist. To Christians the word of God is not a dying fad. It is more alive than you are and when it condemns something it does so because it rebels against God’s established order. And He’s not a politician to change His mind either.
