You just hit the heart of it: a state can’t make legal what the congress has made illegal.
Given that potheads lie, I’d guess that he’s been charged. He’s just trying to get sympathy by lying, if typical.
I’ll be blunt, blaze: Don’t ever publish another sympathetic article about a drug dealer growing a substance that killed more than 20,000 in my state during legalization and ruined the lives of most women my age in my state and disfigured God only knows how many kids here.
It’s like saying that you sympathize with the drug cartels.
To hell with the Blaze. I’ve had it with this crap.

What’s sad is that most of these protesters are dead men walking because of HIV. With it already at least in the 40% officially, and probably much higher in reality, one wonders why these people don’t do something good with the rest of their lives, instead of seeking to hurt non-blacks in the nation.

M-14. Last of our battle rifles, refined from past models.
I assembled a cool little monster. I started with a “baby” Garand. It was built on an old NATO Garand receiver so it is in .308. I uprated it by replacing the upper hand guard with an aluminum cast picatinny rail system, a recoil suppressor that replaces the front locking nut and a 2 – 7 power Hi=Lux/Leatherwood Scout Scope with a 13 inch eye relief so I could mount it forward of the action.
Imagine a semi auto.308 the size of an AK with felt recoil less than a stock AK, and scoped. It’s fun! Does everything the Springfield SOCOM does at half the cost, and M1 clips are a whole lot cheaper than magazines.

That is one of the great pities of our time. Prior to last year’s concussion or accident that mangled his grey matter, Putin was largely the mover in dismantling the communist system and building a free market economy.
The Russians have never said what happened to putin to so completely change the way he acts, but when the ukraine nonsense first started, Merkel called him and afterwards said he sounded completely out of it.

Oddly enough, Slovakia and the Czech republic split because of communist weapons.
During the bad old days, since Slovakia had no industry, the Soviets located a large number of military manufacturing plants there. From tanks to rifles.
When the Velvet Revolution happened, Vaclav Havel promised to get rid of those plants. Trouble is, they were essentially Slovakia’s only industry.
And so they split.
They’d still be together if they’d phased them out instead. Machining like that can make a lot of things other than weapons, but it would take time to shift over.

When I saw the page today with the garish ads, I wondered why the Blaze wants their pages to look like a supermarket tabloid.

My first thought on seein the women was: given how good most Russian women look, how’d they pick two homely women?
Not very nice, maybe, but I’ve never met nor seen Russian women that looked like these two.

True. It’s main problem is that it’s a spray and pray weapon. It’s interesting that Kalazhnikov didn’t try to make it accurate like the Sturmgewehr that it was designed from.
The Koreans took the AK and the M-16, using the best of both. Made for a strange looking gun (Daewoo, but I don’t remember the designation.) but it’s accurate and durable.

Solomon was a bitter old man by the time he wrote Ecclesiastes. He’d tried sex, money, building, and knowledge to fill his life and found it “vanity”.
He also instituted the apostasy that characterized Israel until now. While they’d had periods of rebellion against God before that, Solomon adding his wives religions to Israel caused most of Israel for the next 3000 years to rebel against God. We usually think of it has happening during Christ’s time, but the rebellion was long entrenched by then with a few reforms like Josiah’s (which didn’t last), otherwise they might have recognized the Messiah. As it is, Isaiah said He’d be rejected and he was by most of Israel.
It wasn’t until the end of the 1700s that there was something truly new under the sun— steam power (Hero made a steam-powered toy in the 1st century b.c., but it wasn’t used for anything except entertainment), which meant for the first time that human muscle or animal muscle or water or wind was used to move things.
But, solomon built the temple.
...and bagged the Queen of Sheba. Begetting Ethiopian Jews. Who are quite remarkable.

Given how NBC and some of the other networks are trying to create a race war, it may not be long before we have bigger things to worry about than TV

About four years ago, I was watching a Criminal Minds and thought “what kind of a mind could think of this kind of thing? Some hollywood sick fantasy” and stopped watching almost all TV.
I’d previously watched a couple of other crime shows. I quit watching CSI NY when they had a satanic coven with most of the garbage cleaned up, and called them “vampires”. They had a girl be possessed and acted like is was a good thing. And to top it off, the cops took the side of the satanists, despite what the crimes done to people in the show. Talk about selective application of the law.. That was it for me.
CSI Miami got silly. Stuff like exploding a can of paint in the microwave? Or using three whole cylinders of Halon to smother people in multistore building, despite an ambient air volume and HVAC system that would never have let it get to even minor concentrations?
TV got both evil and dumb. I stopped watching.
Then last year an oldies station came in. Before METV’s translator quit a couple of weeks ago, I was amazed at how good the quality of writing was for programs from the 1960s and 1970s like Mission Impossible (sure, not realistic, but fun to watch) and Adam 12 were. (That one was so accurate that it was actually used for training films.)
Part of the family still watches NCIS and I’m starting to think the entire purpose of the show is to get people used to breaking and entering committed by people with no jurisdiction (habeas corpus is still in effect.)

Even before that, you had the media actively in a nazi role. “Bush lied, people died” and the daily body count. Despite the chemical weapons that showed up in Libya’s arsenal, Syria’s arsenal, 20 tons in terrorist hands near Amman, etc. Plus more than 400,000 in mass graves to date in Iraq from Saddam’s activities.
Compare it to Bosnia, which actually was a lie. There was no massacre of civilians found. Only 3 small “mass graves” in the entire country. A lot of Serbs were killed for nothing.
It’s interesting how much flak I used to get during the Bush administration because I analyzed the international socialists like the Democrats and compared them with their national socialists cousins of 1919-1945.
And when they dropped incrementalism in 2009 and started pushing everthing from homosexuality and pedophilia, to cutting the number of employed from 200+ million to 114 million by last July, it still didn’t get many people’s attention.
One still sees in comment rooms people who blame everyone but the Democrat/nazi party.
They are literally the same type of people who supported nazism in more than a dozen countries prior to WWII. It’s forgotten the nazis were voted in in 1932.
Do you know, as an obvious Demo, that in 1963 the DNC wrote and published in the Congressional Record their Communist Manifesto of 44 steps. Praise God this midterm election has put a little crimp in their completion, and if we are smart and keep the feet of Congress to the fire, we can take back America. Joe McCarthy was so right and we did not want believe so many did not love America and its uniqueness as a Republic. Hateful, vengeful, brain dead, so they hate the country that made them rich, put them in Congress and elsewhere, and gave them the freedom to do it. Now that is looking the gift horse in the mouth and now it is time for the gift horse to kick their butts.

Big problem is this pastor doesn’t appear to be saved.
December 2, 2014 at 7:42pm
It’s truly sad, but the same people who got into most mainstream churches and seminaries in the 1960s also iniltrated most black denominations.
Most black pastors are not Saved, and thus not Christians as defined by the Bible.
Even worse, many preach “black liberation theology” which amouts to a cult of race hatred against all races except black.
In 1960, like other Americans, most blacks were believers. Today most are not. A few are keeping the faith alive and they are some of the greatest people you will ever meet, but they are only a remnant of what used to be the black churches in America.

A pastor at a church I used to go to committed adultery.
What’s nonsensical is the church didn’t seem to wonder why his wife suddenly left him.
At some point his victims are going to say something and it’s not going to be pretty.

Being a non-profit, normally no person has liability for the debt, as peculiar as that sounds. When the np goes out of business, so to speak, the debts are serviced by liquidating the assets of the np itself. If the debts are severe, it’s chapter 7 bankruptcy.
For example, the board that I serve on for a church camp is not liable if something dire happened to crash the debt load, such as the economy going completely. (Until I took sick this year, I was doing the water testing and making sure the water was good. Almost distilled pure, so it usually is an easy task. The paperwork is often annoying, but not that bad.) But the camp’s buildings, the equipment, vehicles, etc. would be sold to pay the debt. In our case, since the land is not owned by the camp, the land itself would not be sold, but the church in this article, it would likely be.

In most jurisdictions, deliberately giving someone a fatal disease is at a minimum attempted murder. Usually it’s murder when the person dies from it.
So, why is he being given a pass? Is it because he’s black? It’s not uncommon for black Americans to be given a pass for crimes committed.

My family is noteworthy in that most of the women are c and above. Most are conservatives who grew up in places like the forest or desert. I don’t think they’d appreciate your characterization.
The nonsense about hanging down is a media myth. Only people who have that problem are those that are 300, 400 lbs.
December 2, 2014 at 5:18pm
You miss the entire point.

That is why most people hunt. To fill the freezer.
