Under this same argument one could state that shooting a police dog who attempts to attack a perpetrator before a warrant can be presented is justified grounds for self-defense.
This is not a police state.

If you want to add fuel to the fire just justify shooting a family pet because of a warrant.
Does this mean that one can shoot the authorities who barge into a home without a warrant under the rationale of self-defense?
You can’t have it both ways.

Yes, there are many scams by corporations as well. But food stamps are real dollars taken from real tax payers.
As for lobbying for food stamps, once they are on the government teat and you can bet they aren’t trying to let go.
Yes, we spend hundreds of billions internationally where we may not need to.
Yes, the federal government has grown exponentially and now tax payers have to pay for federal jobs (unconstitutional, non production, tax eating jobs).
Yes, there is pork spending by most politicians to pander to their constituents.
But if you are trying to tell us that those who are able and are on welfare and food stamps at the expense of the rest of us don’t lobby for that continued sustenance, you can sell that crap elsewhere. We aren’t buying it.

Facts to the AP or like facts to Hillary. They are what she wants them to be.

AP – bought and paid for by the Progressives.

It isn’t going to happen. Texas loves America and its founding, including the US Constitution, more than most states. While Trump may undue some of the damage caused by Obama, he sure as hell is not a Constitutionalist. Texans may not be happy with Cruz today, but they are far more likely to get rid of the establishment candidate Cornyn.
Lest you forget, there are few actual Senators that stand up for the Constitution and Cruz is one of them. But then again, I shouldn’t expect too much intelligence from those who have whole hearted bought into Trumps story. By their fruits ye shall know them, NOT THEIR WORDS. And Trump has yet to prove himself.
Trump turned a few million dollars into a few billion. He has nothing left to prove.You brought up fruits. Goes with stewardship as well, right?
Apparently you are not a Texan. Once in words and once in writing Ted made the pledge and has failed to carry out that pledge. A man's word is his bond and is not dependent on the actions of others. The excuse is disparaging words about his wife and father which means nothing. Ask Rick Wilson if Ted knew about the add in Utah about Trump's wife which started the whole bringing of wives in the discussion.
Trump could've invested that money and made more than he did with his superior business prowess and never had to file bankruptcy. Oh yeah, I forgot his plan for the national debt is to make a yuge deal and do some debt restructuring but this isn't a corporation, it's the United States.

Paul made it clear that the effeminate will go to hell with the adulterers, fornicators and abusers of nature (1 Cor. 6:9). An effeminate is a man who shows characteristics/acts like a woman.

“We are all equal in the eyes of the Lord. He doesn’t see man or woman. That means he doesn’t see trans,” Williams said.
God is no respecter of persons means that we were all on equal footing in the beginning. No one was destined to fail and no one was destined to succeed. However, our agency allows us to become who we are and God will not save one in their sins from damnation. God blesses the obedient.
To suppose that all are equal in God’s eyes regardless of their actions, attitudes, etc. is to defy that God expects man to become perfect. You better believe God identifies a difference in the faithful, repentant and obedient son or daughter of the godless, sinners.
And how exactly does God interpret a spiritual son in a female physical body?
So, who are you for…….and don’t give us someone who is not an option. Who are you for?
You can whine, bitch and moan about who you do not want, but who are you for? Come election time, you vote FOR someone, not AGAINST someone.
Are you now voting for the Independent candidate?
Those who do not plan to vote should sit down and shut-up.

Politician say a lot of things that worth less than a pile of dog crap on the sidewalk. Yes, let’s take this as fact and run with it…………………I want you to run the show and I will take credit for it. What dumb a$% is falling for this line.

Do the holes in the side of your head work. He is speaking, but I guess you just aren’t listenin. Its a good thing that we don’t have to count on the likes of you for anything in America.
July 20, 2016 at 2:32pm
And republicans keep voting the same damn Senators and Congressmen/Congresswomen to office that vote on legislation that they do not read. And we wonder why we have a problem.
You can thank the utterly incompetent and negligent American voter.
July 20, 2016 at 2:22pm
If you are claiming to be an ‘R’ then you may be part of the problem. All but a few elected ‘Republicans’ have not betrayed the American voter. Yet, when the vote comes around again, you all keep voting for the same damn people.
Whine all you want. The failure to elect a descent Congress with integrity and a back bone has been just as big a problem (if not more so).
 July 20, 2016 at 2:16pm
When Hilary speaks, it is a lie 95% of the time. Are you siding with Hilary or are you going to quit whining and grow a back bone.
I did not vote for Trump. I voted for Cruz. But, the people have spoken through the primary elections (this anarchist act at the Convention is pathetic). Trump is a moderate and he has gone back and forth on many issues. But he has not:
Stolen from the White House
Failed miserably as Secretary of State
Betrayed the lives of Americans
Lied to the families of those killed about why they were killed (her intention to cover up the gun trafficking and terrorist actions known well in advance)
Profited from her position
Released government secrets
Bold face lied to Congress, the FBI and the American people
Engaged in money laundering
and the list goes on.

Have you given up already to Hilary? Good thing the country didn’t have to depend on you. Thank God our Founders had spines and weren’t cowards throwing tantrums when they didn’t get their way.
 July 20, 2016 at 1:57pm
Have you lied or deceived your fellow man?
Have taken that which did not belong to you?
Have you intentionally meant to hurt someone?
Have you envied that which you could not afford but another possessed?
These are all moral principles that go along with fidelity to one’s spouse, avoidance of fornication, refraining from immoral and unnatural actions, Sabbath day observance, etc.
If you have a problem with a Church denying the practice of homosexuality, then you obviously have a problem with that same Church emphasizing honesty, integrity, fidelity, etc. What hateful people to expect one to be honest and not lie. What bigots to expect one to be committed to one’s spouse and family. If you don’t have a problem with these other areas then you are the ultimate hypocrite.

Blink – you can support perversions. That is your right. But I don’t have to support them…..and sticking body parts were body parts were not intended is a perversion!
Do you have a problem with incest? How about beasteality? If so, you are the ultimate hypocrite, because you accept one man’s perversion while disagreeing with another man’s perversion.
Religion supports natural relations, not perversions. Religion supports procreation and the continuation of life. Homosexuality does neither.
You have the right to believe as you will. But the simple fact of the matter is that if your parents had engaged in such perversions there would be NO Blink…… and that is a NATURAL & RELIGIOUS FACT that cannot be denied.

I’ll bet that this was one of the many who protested for $15/hour as though they were worth it. This individual’s customer service (most likely in other situations as well) doesn’t deserve them a damn dime.
After having spent seven years in pizza delivery, I can tell you there is nothing going on in one of these places (short of excellent managers) that deserves 15 an hour.
That's why robots are going to be replacing these morons that can't seem to do a simple job.

The courts do not support original intent. They themselves have established a state religion of godless secularism. They have broken their oaths of office and have proven enemies to original intent.
Congress shall not establish a state religion. This says nothing about my local school superintendent or principal. CONGRESS! There were still State sponsored religions after the US Constitution was ratified (limitations put on the federal government). There was to be NO Church of America like the Church of England.
As for ‘the free exercise thereof’, there was no intent for the courts, legislators or the administration to limit the free exercise of religion.
Jefferson never wrote the Bill of Rights. Jefferson never RATIFIED the Bill of Rights. His words have no bearing (although they have been misinterpreted) on original intent.

Where in the Constitution does it state that you are free from hearing another’s beliefs, that you are free from differences of opinion or that you are free from opposition. IT DOES NOT.
Tolerance is a funny thing and so few in life possess it.
