Ted is done. I voted for him in the special election that got him nominated as the republican candidate for the senate seat he holds. Then I voted for him in the general. Then I voted for him in the primary for president. I’m looking for someone else to vote for next time.
good for you--that's your choice. Are you planning on going back to electing a RINO then in Texas to replace Cruz in the senate the next time around? What a waste, but good luck with that.

I stopped my subscription to the local newspaper because I was tired of the subtle and not so subtle manipulative headlines that fill the front pages. “Ice pack lowest in years, hints at environmental disaster” stuff like that on every social and political issue. It has a certain presumptive arrogance that what they’re saying is right and that everyone should think like they do.
Like the headline of this article, meant for one thing, manipulate peoples thinking. This is not news, this is distraction. Every poll within the party shows that the number of people who want to stop Trump is small. But here’s an article designed to make it appear that Trump supporters are somehow so evil that you cannot possible support him.
For anyone who has read “The forth turning” you know that we’re in the period of time where the worst crisis’ catalyze (If you haven’t read it ask yourself why there’s a crisis that is so terrible that we may or may not come out of it about every 80 years). As soon as enough good people realize that ‘these guys really are going to mess this up’ then those good people will start to act. Could the thing that makes us realize this be Trump having the nomination taken away from him? It will be for many.

The left says conservatives are dangerous because they can, the right says leftists are dangerous because they are.

I call the Libertarian party the self marginalizing party. See article for exhibit A. duh.

The principle involved here is that when when a society rejects morality it goes crazy. I know, you were expecting me to say ‘becomes immoral’ but that doesn’t really express it. There isn’t really a moral issue with the fact that those who have rejected Gods morality can’t even figure out where to go to the bathroom.

Not sure I’m getting what’s going on here. Trump says this guy is a nasty guy, guy shows he’s nasty by quoting scripture that imply’s Trump is Jezebel, then all these comments say, “see, trump is against Christians”. What am I missing…
I know there are too many voices and it’s easy to only hear the ones we want to hear but the explanation for the ‘rigged’ commentary is that the rules were changed in 3 states and a major way after Trump entered the race. He entered in June and the rules were changed in August/September in Florida, Wyoming and Colorado (they couldn’t have known that all the establishment candidates would be gone by now). Wyoming and Colorado was seemingly designed to help establishment candidates by reducing the effect of the voters desire and increasing the affect of the parties desire. In Florida, the rules were changed to allow a 50 percent winner to get all the delegates. Is it that far out to see this was designed to help Jeb Bush?
So, to me the ‘rigged’ part is true, the rules can be changed for specific candidates benefit after the race has begun.

So, the whole “I’m not going to ruin a mans life” thing was just for show! Who would have thought.
I doubt his life is 'ruined' because of a mere position change. Last I heard he was still on Trump's payroll, and very likely for the same amount of money.
So the whole, I am such a GOOD CHRISTIAN FAMILY MAN, WAS JUST FOR SHOW!
You Cruz Zombies have gone Rabid!

I liked this comment, “None of the animals was forced to take part, she said.” At least they were concerned with the feelings of the animals. The lawyers might want them to add a statement on their brochures, “No animals were harmed in the making of these paintings”
I don’t mind calling these ‘paintings by animals’ but to call it an “Artshow” is a little much. Nothing about what an animal does to a canvass is art. Art is “the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.”
This is the influence of the left ruining what it touches. If you want something ruined then just get the left to become interested in it. If you ask a leftist they’ll say these paintings are appealing and they are beautiful and significant. But my question would be, what aesthetic principles are at work?
These paintings are not beautiful, they are not expression or quality and there are no aesthetic principles involved in their making. It’s not art. However, it is interesting and I might buy one if I thought that the charity was legitimate. But it’s not going to be displayed with any of my real art.

Grover, So… you admit that these are human lives. And they would grow up to be undesirable people. And applying your reasoning we should kill all bums, parasites and criminals and, well, anyone without a chance of getting ahead and is desperate.
It may feel good to be against the undesirable and you may wonder how come everyone doesn’t agree with you but arguments based on feelings are inherently unreliable and are blind to anything that contradicts the feeling. The only one fooled is you and others who consider only their feelings. You may think that your intentions are good but the world is littered with evil done with good intentions.
For completeness, 53 million more people would not be a bad thing. Even despite abortion we’ve added more than 53 million people in the last 25 years. Adding these people was a good thing. I await your argument that my children being born is a bad thing.

Well, My bible says, “Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord! For what good is the day of the Lord to you?” I’d rather live through a revival of good than hope for the wrath to come. The whole point is that it’s not inevitable… today. Ultimately inevitable yes, but not today. Lets fight the evil today, which is our duty.

In essence, this is the only question. The entire global warming hysteria is built on CO2 being the cause. When I debate this issue, I get it down to making the opposition find the report/study/off hand comment by Einstein that proves CO2 is the cause. They never come back on that point.

There are two ironies in your post; One is that the article is pointing out how those who don’t really have an argument will instead label the opposition in some derogatory way. Ok, sure, you’re not as good at labeling as the left but saying that if you don’t believe the earth is 6000 years old then you’re just like a leftist, is labeling. Second, this article points out that the movement is actually religious fervor masquerading as science. I don’t have to explain the irony do I?
Here’s what gives me pause in agreeing with your premise. Stuff looks old. For instance, how long does it take to make petrified wood? For every cell in the wood structure to be replaced with mineral. How long does it take to compress sediment in to rock? How long did water have to drip in the Carlsbad Caverns to build the thousands of stalactites and stalagmites found there?
Here’s the pause; Either something happened to make the earth appear old or God created the earth, complete with age. That something that happened would have to explain the above. That leaves God created the earth complete with age. I hope you see the problem I have with that. I would be saying that God made things that reveal events that didn’t really happen. But I know God to be no liar.
I would say, there are better places for this debate than this article. For most people, the eye test of young earth make it not very compelling and those who come on strong about it aren’t making the argument look any better

So, we should listen to the gal with the nose ring?
The problem with your logic is in the idea that we should ‘provide incentives’. The way to say what actually happens when you ‘provide incentives’ is to say ‘interfere with the normal process moving between different types of energy usage’. Think tanks and research are one thing but when you decide to pick a winner (ie I want this type of energy to win) then you are interfering. Even the market can’t predict the next hot device. It just happens and then you look back and say, ‘of course, we were ready for it at this time’.
On the issue of agreeing with the left, what a mistake. There is only one correct answer to the proposal of man made global warming/climate change, ‘show how Co2 is the cause’. This is the only question that promoters MUST answer. All the rest of the argument is just looking at the affect and implying a cause.

I was there in 72 in Naha on base housing. I was 11 though. We had two or three hits while I was there, eye of the storm passed right over Naha; cool.

This isn’t a good place to teach or argue scripture but it’s a great place to debate ideas. What idea are you trying to posit?
If you’re saying that one groups interpretation of one detail in the bible is proof that God doesn’t exist or that you don’t have to consider any ideas from the bible then I would counter by saying where else in your life do you require 100 percent accuracy from people who are interpreting what they read?
To answer your question I think the bigger question is how did plant life survive for thousands of years without insects? I don’t think there’s any way around the days of creation being actual days.

You’re saying that God made the Earth complete with history. That didn’t actually happen. If that’s the case then couldn’t he have made the Earth and us 10 minutes ago? Complete with memories… that didn’t actually happen? I think you have to be careful in your exuberance to trust your interpretation of scripture that you don’t make God out to be a liar.
March 19, 2014 at 10:36pm
In case you haven’t been watching, the left will spend their time trying to destroy whoever they see as a rival. If there isn’t a good reason they will make one up. Not sticking to your principles so you’re seen as a good guy or at least not a bad guy is the reason we’re in this mess. So, the idea that Ted Cruz wouldn’t be a good candidate because the left might try to destroy him by questioning his citizenship is weak reasoning.
