    @Brigott

    …your statement is absolutely true, but it begs a question. If you choose “not” to be civil, if you choose not to take the path of peace, yet do not break the law, does the state have the power to arrest you?

    It depends. If he has a job history that is relatively spotless with no black marks on his performance reviews, and is getting steady pay raises over the years that he worked there, then suddenly he is fired days after his blog post, then proving that it was his blog post as the cause of firing, is relatively easily.

    But if he has an up and down job record, with frequent clashes then it becomes much harder.

    How about this. Show us a proposal which will accomplish the mission of taking care of our veterans., and convince us that you mean buisness by agreeing to be audited every quarter for the next 5 years. Also in this proposal will be an agreement that any doctor, administrator, and any functionary can be fired without cause immediately. No comittee’s, no hearings, no job protection, if you can’t do the job competently. you’re gone.

    Show us your proposal, and then we’ll talk about money.

    This entire case will be determined on whether he signed an agreement to not use social media to express personal views while serving as the editor of the Newspaper. If he did then the Newspaper wins, if he didn’t then he wins.

    The problem here is these executions are being performed in a manner mean’t to appease the sensibilities of the viewing audience and not the criminal. If the goal of the execution is to insure a quick, sure, and painless death then one must instantaneously destroy the brain and heart. If your brain is destroyed you have no consciousness or perception of pain.

    Simply bring back the firing squad. 12 .308 rifles. 6 aimed at the head, and 6 aimed at the heart. Death is absolutely certain, instantaneous, and painless for the criminal. The blood and gore of a head and chest exploding will also assure any onlookers that this man/woman is executed and utterly dead. There will be no doubters, and the mechanical simplicity of it will ensure little chance of mistakes, or murphy’s law inserting itself into the situation. It will also be a whole lot cheaper.

    I’m sorry to disagree with Beck but even if the motives are insincere (which they likely are), there is stil a credible missile threat to not only planes over Israel airspace but also the approaches, including seaborne approaches. These are not military aircraft with electronic spoofing, counter missile tech, or heat seeking avoidance. They don’t fly fast enough and are essentially gigantic “cannot miss” whales. I realize that the surface to surface missiles currently being used on Israel are not designed for anti-aircraft, but I’m sure they have or can obtain some, and using the reasoning that an American massacre would hurt the cause of Hamas doesn’t fly with me, because they have no logic, or reason other than Allah’s will.

    So even if the administration is attempting to punish Israel, their “stated” reasoning for stopping flights is hard to counter. All it takes is one lucky shot.

    So you’re Obama and the Texas Governor is putting the military on the border, and can’t stop it. So what do you think Obama is going to do about this development? What can Obama do to make himself look good, and Perry look bad?

    Somthing about this screams “unfortunate incident” to me. It will of course be a manufactured one, but that won’t bother the media one bit, nor will they care.

    This family are heralds of a darker future. Hateful, bitter, loveless, brutal. A big black hole where there hearts should be.

    The long night is coming.

    If you’re a thief are you going to pull out a gun and rob this restaurant or go down the road to the “No guns allowed Cafe?”

    This is policy vs practicality. There may be a perfectly good policy, for all the right reasons, and 9 times out of 10 it may make perfect sense. But it failed in this instance, and when practicality says you MUST do something different, then you don’t worry about the policy or the rules, you do what needs to be done with no apologies.

    The problem is that it takes independent people, with confidence in themselves, and no fear of breaking rules or policies to do this. These type of people are diminishing at a rapid rate in the climate we’re living in. The American people are swiftly becoming a horde of cowardly lemmings.

    I’ve never heard of that. It makes perfect sense now that I think about it.

    There’s another more “spiritual” factor regarding the attitude of the world toward Israel. I won’t belabor this point, because the author’s reasoning is solid, and makes sense to me, but from a Biblical perspective this shift is prophetic.

    The Bible speaks of a future time of gathering where God calls the Jewish people back to their “true” land, and speaks of a world without allies, where the Jew is almost universally hated and despised. It is in this time, where Israel is utterly friendless, that the nations will gather to destroy the country and it’s people. It is also in this time that Israel having no hope will turn back to God….and unlike other times, God will answer in a…most dramatic way.

    We live in interesting times.

    Militarization of our police isn’t about weapons, and armored vehicles. It’s a mind-set. One in which the police are not seeing citizens with rights, but as the enemy. Everyone is potentially dangerous, anyone could be holding a gun and want to kill them, It’s fear based care, which is perfectly appropriate for a soldier dealing with an enemy combatant. But the US citizen is NOT THE ******** ENEMY! And killing, maiming, and hurting people because it makes a LEO safer is NOT ********JUSTIFIED!

    If this kind of crap keeps going on it’ll destroy public trust, and once that’s gone, it’ll take generations to heal, if EVER!

    The reality we live in today.

    If you are a woman and don’t want your child, then it’s not human, it’s simply a blob of inconvenient tissue, no more important than a pimple. Killing the child is nothing more than a procedure.

    If you are a man and don’t want your child then it’s a full human being, and more important than life itself. Killing the child is 1st degree murder.

    In conclusion, it’s the woman, not biology, not God, and certainly not a man that decides if the child she is carrying is human, or just unwanted tissue.

    @JGraham III

    Not to cause even more ruckus on the matter but the verses in Timothy says “I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man.”

    This seems to be broader than just a husband, but I assume it would also include such. I think that you might be building a compromise on what seems logical, and just to you (and to me.), but as others have said it’s God’s Word, and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts. Yet the reasoning from the point of view of a mere man is baffling to me. I know that some say that Women are emotional creatures and unfit for leadership, and teaching, but my observations have always found this to be slap dash psychology, rather than fact. I’ve known women as coldly logical and mentally as hard as steel that would have done a better job at leading a Ranger Battalion than some of the Batallion commanders I’ve known. Yet despite all of that it seems that God has another plan for women in mind, and when in doubt, the Bible says, “because you say so Lord….I will.”

    I personally don’t have an issue with this, because I don’t understand the Bible’s admonition of women being teachers and pastors, but the Bible is pretty clear on the topic.

    “Let a woman learn quietly owith all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, rthen Eve;and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.”

    1Timothy 2:11-14

    Your sarcasm is noted and it might surprise you to learn that the implication of what you’re saying was a concern from the very beginning of the church. The Bible teaches us that we will continue to sin even after salvation, and that we are a work in constant progress. However our salvation, does not shield us from God’s discipline, nor the damaging effects of sin. Living an unrepentant life does incalculable damage. Ignoring sin, justifying it, or pretending it doesn’t exist is like living with a time bomb, and although it may appear that she is living free and clear, she is doing nothing but building up an ocean of wrath and pain, that will come her way.

    This is what happens when a mission oriented man (which is a good thing), is devoid of reason.

    City Heights South Dakota. Well done. These are the actions of a free and independent people. Would this have happened in Chicago?
