    No, the people who either stayed home or voted for a third-party gave us Obama.

    “Police said they’re trying to determine why the children were home alone”

    If you’re old enough to use a gun to protect your little sister from a home intruder… you’re old enough to be home alone.

    I know plenty of adults who wouldn’t have the gall to do what this young man did – and good thing he had access to the gun and had obviously been taught to use it properly!

    I guess I’m old fashioned at heart, but back in the old west – I’m sure by age 11 a young man was often expected to carry a gun and watch his little sister alone.

    @GOP

    Dang, your caught me! It’s just part of our Mormon plan to take over the world! ;)

    Reminds me of Obama’s speech on Monday – truly hilarious.

    ” if we do nothing to keep the glaciers from melting faster, and oceans from rising faster, and forests from burning faster, and storms from growing stronger, we will condemn our children to a planet beyond their capacity to repair,”

    “Submerged countries. Abandoned cities. Fields no longer growing. Indigenous peoples who can’t carry out traditions that stretch back millennia,” he said. “Entire industries of people who can’t practice their livelihoods. Desperate refugees seeking the sanctuary of nations not their own. Political disruptions that could trigger multiple conflicts around the globe.”

    “So if we do nothing, temperatures in Alaska are projected to rise between six and 12 degrees by the end of the century, triggering more melting, more fires, more thawing of the permafrost, a negative feedback loop, a cycle–warming leading to more warming–that we do not want to be a part of,”

    “So let me sum up. We know that human activity is changing the climate. That is beyond dispute. Everything else is politics if people are denying the facts of climate change. We can have a legitimate debate about how we are going to address this problem; we cannot deny the science,”

    And THEY accuse Glenn Beck a “doomsday-sayer”! LOL

    “The policy change is only temporary, though, as it applies to the Holy Year, known as Holy Year of Mercy, that runs from Dec. 8, 2015 through Nov. 20, 2016″

    Uhhh… so there’s a limited time set by the Pope for forgiveness of certain sins?

    Note to self – make sure to swing by the “year end sale” at the car dealership to take advantage of the limited-time sale – then swing by a church to take part in the limited-time repentance process – hurry, supplies are limited!

    Perfect example of the apostasy from the original gospel and the need for a restoration of the truth.

    In case anyone else was curious, here is a summary of the crime from another news source…

    “Gordon’s daughter, 3-year-old Jamila Smith of Detroit, died of multiple blunt force injuries in September 2014, and her death was ruled a homicide, according to a spokesman with the Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office.”

    I have a feeling that guy should stay in prison if he knows what’s good for him.

    What is up with how the men swing sticks in third-world countries? It looks like a little girl trying to case an enchantment with a princess wand. That is what happens when men don’t grow up with baseball.

    yup – didn’t see that yet. Hard to dispute that!

    How in the world did they connect that guy to his image in the video? They really look absolutely nothing alike.

    Here’s a less granulated pic of the gunman in the video – again – looks nothing like the suspect. The shooter is totally white with a light colored beard in the pic?

    I’m not a conspiracy wacko, but am I the only one who doesn’t see the resemblance?

    Good man, but hopefully he’s ready to have done to him what they did to Sheriff Joe Arpaio here in Phoenix. Drives the libs crazy that we keep re-electing him :)

    Nothing worse than the ‘drive-by’ down-vote. It’s the virtual equivalent to a “nuh-uh” response. At least engage in a friendly debate! I am not the type to personally offend for believing differently.

    @ultra

    My family has roots in Scotland as well, but not so nearly as recent. We immigrated here in the mid 1700′s. I recently found out I have ancestry that was at the Constitutional Convention! Pretty cool.

    Anyhow, thanks for your perspective.

    As for science, I embrace it. I see science as man’s study of the power of God. Thus, I don’t see why God could not have chosen to use a big bang or even a little bang to create the earth. :) I’m of the lot that also believes “seven days” in the Bible refers to seven creative periods… who knows how long each creative period actually was.

    Funny enough, I also agree that the Bible as we have it today, could not have been translated 100% perfect. My religion has “articles of faith” summarizing our beliefs. Article of Faith #8 declares “We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.”

    However, I do have to disagree with you on one point. I for one believe the Bible to contain the word of God, and do not consider myself to thereby be “ignorant”. I hold a doctorate degree and am well versed in the things of the world. As an attorney, I am hardly unsophisticated. Frankly, the more I learn of the world, the more I see a divine heritage.

    Nevertheless, this is the great thing about this country… the marketplace of ideas!

    I would challenge you to give faith another chance.

    @brotherhood – okay, we can disagree on the point you’re trying to make, but I’m glad we agree on the bigger point that we are saved only through Jesus Christ.

    @bluebird – no, brotherhood knows that I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormon) – and therefore believe in a premortal existence.

    Now…

    I don’t see why anyone would doubt that we lived with our Father in Heaven prior to our mortal existence. Where then did we come from? Then why else would we call Him our Father in Heaven?

    I believe the Bible when it tells us that we existed prior to coming to earth. Here’s a few examples.

    God of the spirits of all flesh: Num. 16:22 (Num. 27:16)
    all the sons of God shouted for joy: Job 38:7
    the spirit shall return unto God who gave it: Eccl. 12:7
    Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee: Jer. 1:5
    Lord … formeth the spirit of man within him: Zech. 12:1
    who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind: John 9:2
    poets have said, For we are also his offspring: Acts 17:28
    For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate: Rom. 8:29
    chosen us in him before the foundation of the world: Eph. 1:4
    subjection unto the Father of spirits: Heb. 12:9
    angels which kept not their first estate: Jude 1:6
    Michael and his angels fought against the dragon: Rev. 12:7

    But either way, I’ll say again, that I’m glad we agree on the more important issue that we are saved only by Jesus Christ. :)

    I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. :) But I respect that you are true to your family! Thanks for your service!

    “Anna Duggar was taught that her sole purpose in life, the most meaningful thing she could do, was to be chaste and proper, a devout wife, and a mother.”

    I take offense to the author implying that such is not the case.

    I take offense that the author would imply that stay-at-home mothers are anything less than the most important and noble role in our society and in the eyes of God.

    There is absolutely no question as to what is eternally more significant when choosing between raising children or having a career.

    Putting a band-aid on a skinned knee of a child is far more meaningful than all the stocks traded in this world. Singing a lullaby to a sick child is far more meaningful than all the cars sold in this world. Teaching a child that they are loved unconditionally is far more meaningful than all the college social studies classes that have ever been taught. Soothing a baby is far more meaningful than all the Facebook posts combined.

    EVERYTHING I have ever done in my service as a U.S. Marine, and now in my career as an attorney, shrinks in comparison to what my wife does everyday as a mother to our children.

    One day, the titans of industry will bow at the feet of those who were “chaste and proper, a devout wife, and a mother”! Now THAT is ‘breathing fire’!

    Just a paining. The one’s on my fridge from my kids are much more valuable.

    @heisendude

    You’re an idiot. Supporting the military is not “pro big federal government” – it’s pro-freedom. It’s pro-constitutional federal government.

    Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution lists 17 separate powers that are granted to the Congress. Six of those powers deal exclusively with the national defense.

    The Constitution requires the federal government to protect the nation. Article Four, Section Four states that the “United States shall guarantee to every State a republican form of government and shall protect each of them against invasion.” In other words, even if the federal government chose to exercise no other power, it must, under the Constitution, provide for the common defense.
