Hmm…I confess that I did not know where he stood on the 2nd Amendment, so you caused me to research his stand on it. True, he has changed his mind on it over time, but currently he seems strong is supporting it. Therefore, I am still pro-Ben Carson. I am not someone who automatically rules someone out because they sometimes change their mind on a matter. Who in the world doesn’t change their mind sometimes? I am more leery of someone who won’t ever change his mind, then someone who can be reasoned with.

There hasn’t been a word come out of this intelligent, brave man’s mouth that I haven’t agreed with. People say he shouldn’t be considered as a presidential contender because he hasn’t governed. I say he reminds me of the character of many of the founding fathers who also had no prior governing experience but proved to be some of our greatest leaders. Unlike Obama who has absolutely no accomplishments in life beside being a husband and a father and being elected to office by dirty tricks, exploiting his skin color and promising free stuff, Ben Carson is loaded with talent and accomplishments. People should seriously consider him for president.
And by repentance, I mean changing your ways, not continuing in them.
The fact of the matter is that The Lord said it is better for a man that a millstone be cast around his neck and he be cast in to the depths of the sea than that he should offend just one of these little ones. That "pastor" needs to get his wife under subjection and be the leader of his household. If he can't hold his own household he can't hold the household of God. I am a pastor myself and I can tell you that people pay just as much attention to your wife as they do to you. I guarantee you this guy is a pariah in his community if for no other reason other than his wife is a huge stumbling block.

I am glad to live in the USA where freedom to worship as you believe is a guaranteed right. However, Islam should be an exception and not allowed in this country. It is at perfect odds with the Constitution. The Koran says a person has the freedom to become Islamic but not to leave it. The Koran says that those who turn their back on Islam are to be executed.
In my opinion, any and all religions that promote death as a penalty for not remaining true to the faith should not be acknowledged or even allowed in this nation. America is a place of religious liberty but not when the religion itself is an enemy to liberty. This does not mean that I am biased against Islam. This standard to worship freely should be held as a standard for all religions that want to exist in this nation. No religion, Islamic or otherwise, should be allowed in America if it destroys individual freedom as guaranteed by the Constitution.
I like your argument. We can't have it both ways. We can't allow this barbaric religion to overthrow our very Constitution and our human rights in America. Until & unless they change - they are a threat to our very existence.
Freedom of religion was never intended to include islame. It was intended to be able to practice any form of Christianity that you want.
It is NOT a religion!
It cannot be treated as one.
It is a complete system of life that incorporates every societal, political, legal and behavioral aspect of existence as a human, cloaked in religion to force it's acceptance in tolerant societies!!!
23689 that is a succinct description of the crux of the matter! Before 9/11 I would have lumped Islam in with other major world religions. But now, having learned more about the Koran (optional spelling) , I'm at a loss. Jews & Christians are very definite about telling the truth. It's not like we never lie ; but most feel guilty, confess, & repent when we do. So I'm confused. Do Muslims really think it's okay to lie? Are they uniformly homophobes? How can they want to live here if they are fundamentally opposed to our way of life? If they uniformly believe we are infidels? And how can we believe anything they say when we know they've been taught to lie? Aiyiyi.

If everything is up front and on the table like the Feds say, why are they fighting so very hard to prevent the kind of audit Senator Paul is proposing? I’ll tell you why. It’s because there are people in the Federal Reserve who are making themselves, their relatives and friends rich by printing money from thin air. If I am wrong, the Feds have a very easy way to prove it. They can simply submit to the kind of audit Senator Paul is suggesting, not the phony baloney kind of audit that they pretend is holding them accountable.

By not holding rioters accountable you guarantee more of it in the future.
I argee with your post. A considerable issue for Ferguson PD is that the little over 50 sworn officers has lost legitimacy of their authority in a potential population group of over 3,000-5,000 residents. Current criminal justice practitioner theory has a focus on Community-Oriented Policing Strategy (COPS) to build collaborative partnerships between police and stakeholders in the minority community for coproduction of social control forces and order maintenance. If the community doesn't believe the police are legit or are unwilling to participate in reforms and collaboritive efforts it will take a hell of a long time for 50 officers to change the minds of that many thousands of residents.

Now that I think about it, you are right and I have changed my mind. She should be held accountable to God for her unwillingness to be a mother to this precious child. But if through her weakness, she can’t or won’t love the child, I am okay with her giving it up. I’d rather the child be with someone who loved him.
 February 6, 2015 at 4:37am
I don’t think we should judge the mother. I’d rather a mother give up a baby than abort one. With that said, I do think she missed a great oppourtunity. Every family I have met who has a Down Syndrome child ends up loving that child very much and couldn’t imagine life without him or her.
I absolutely think we should judge a woman who's willing to abandon her own child when she finds out "there's something wrong with your son."

The left has to keep a lot of what they do secret and behind closed doors to keep the people from waking up to their radical, erroneous and anti American ways.

Rubio made little head way last election and won’t this time either. I have no idea what Krauthammer is thinking. If the Republicans want to win they need a former successful governor. Especially one that is truly conservative.

The delivery guy was very respectable considering the circumstances. The auto sales people were rude and stupid. I would never shop at that auto dealership until I knew that the two guys sitting at the desks were gone.

This must be a liberal group. They consider themselves gifted. Everyone knows that liberals are smarter than everyone else. They never stop telling us that this is the case.
If you have to keep telling people how smart you are, you obviously haven't been providing any evidence.

Two Bills: Bill Cosby was confronted about rape accusations against him during an interview. What about Bill Clinton? There is a long list of women who have accused him of rape. How come an interviewer never confronts him? The answer is because the interviewer would lose his job, that’s why.

The only thing that makes this news is that the New York Times finally caught up with the story.

Good. I am for trying these changes and any others that will speed up the game and make it more interesting. It is now the baseball playoff season and most the people I know are more interested in college football or the NFL or are already getting excited for the NBA. Baseball has got to be more innovative and responsive to the general population and not just the purest or it is going to fade away.

He says, “I am a 25 year old black man charged with a crime I didn’t commit.” Why is he mentioning his color? What does that have to do with with his case? Is he insinuating that he has been falsely charged because of his color? Is this now the defense that every black person is going to take?
Weeks of silence because she was waiting to see which way the wind was blowing. In the meantime she counselled with assistnats who help her craft the most politically balanced comment she could muster. Neither she nor her husband breath or blink without first weighing the political cost.
Some of us in Arkansas even thought Chelsea was such a calculation.

Obama is in a win, win situation. Win 1: If he doesn’t get congress to do things his way he will use unconstitutional executive power. (By the way, it is Harry Reid that is preventing legislation from going forward, not republicans.) Win 2: If anyone complains about his using executive power he well complain that republicans want to impeach him. This will gin up his base and possibly help his political party in the mid-terms elections. All of this is made possible because democrat representatives and senators will not stand up for the constitution when it is their man destroying it.

Impeachment needs to be bipartisan to be effective and it is clear to everyone that the democrats will not admit the abuse of power exercised by President Obama even though it is obvious. Trying to impeach President Obama would only embolden the left and that is what they want. Therefore, let the democrats take the lead for any impeachment proceedings and when it becomes clear that they won’t act, then let history declare that not only was Obama the nation’s worst President but his party would not step up and defend the constitution.
