    Why should this man’s lies cost him more than the average politician’s cost?

    The Palestinians with allies from Jordan, Syria, Egypt, and Iraq started a war with the goal of destroying Israel and killing every Jew in the country. They lost.

    But that’s right, isn’t it? Jes are the only ethnicity in the world that didn’t come from anywhere and thus has no right to exist anywhere.

    You know, Mojo, you can replace “Israel” with “Jordan” in that list and it’s every bit as true, if not more so. Where’s the outcry against Jordan?

    Generations of Palestinians have lived their entire lives in Jordan, but they aren’t afforded Jordanian citizenship, the right to vote, work, move out of refugee camps, etc. They are as trapped in Jordan as they are in Israel. The difference is Israel is trying to prevent suicide bombings. Jordan is a tyranny using Palestinian starvation for political points.

    When you condemn Jordan as much as you do Israel, I’ll at least give your ramblings some consideration instead of rejecting everything you say as hopelessly corrupt bias.

    Why does everyone try to tread water? Of course you can’t do it forever.

    Dead Man’s Float. Lie on your belly, face down. It’s the easiest way to float. Lift your head only to breath. It takes little effort, you can last a long time.

    I am not sure which makes me sadder.

    That someone would believe one has the right to remove an individuals right to live without just cause or that someone would actually exercise that claimed right.

    #13 is about the providence and protection of God. It can be seen in the big world-course-altering issues like Winston Churchill or Ronald Reagan, but also in the status quo. For example, I do not like to imagine the response to 9/11 by a president Al Gore.

    It happens on the individual level, too. The right person in the right place at the right time. It proves to me a greater plan of a Greater Being.

    By all means, let’s get ahead of this vice. We don’t actually need to know it is a vice first. Let’s get the regs and taxes in place just in case it is.

    I would like to get a Supreme Court Sycophant, ur Justice, to explain this to me:

    If you are OK with an unconstitutional, secret FISA court issuing illegal warrants not based on probable cause that do not state precisely who and what is to be seized from where, why would you object to police pulling over vehicles on anonymous tip? The tip at least constitutes a modicum of probable cause, albeit not up to constitutional muster.

    Did you read more than the first sentence or two of my statement?

    I’ll curse Zeus. If he ever actually existed, he was a charlatan who cared only to fill his own belly at the expense of any and every one other than himself. You know, what we call a “progressive” now.

    Mocking the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, though, is a fool’s journey. Mocking his followers, though, is a fruitful enough pastime. Often enjoyable and useful for the growth of knowledge and wisdom.

    I’d be fine if the government got out altogether, but that’s not even on the table.

    If the state would issue a license for a certain behavior – such as medicine, engineering, food vending, alcohol, or even marriage, then the state has a right to set qualifications for that license. Anyone with such a license will then be required to be recognized for it. If we license gay marriage, churches will be forced to recognize it and participate in it. We have already seen the rights of private individuals removed by force over this issue, so I’m not just blowing “extremist” wind here.

    How’s that going to work out for the grand design of “limited government?”

    You ask for a simple answer for a complex situation. You demand God stay out of your affairs and then curse Him when hoist on your own petard.

    God is merciful. If He were to smite one the moment one went astray, there’d be none of us left. If He wanted us to obey period, we’d not have the free will required to chose poorly.

    God blesses a nation (speaking of nations, not individuals) that trusts in His righteousness. Even the wicked within will tangentially receive a blessing because of this. As a nation turns away from God, He will send it messages to correct its course. These will often take the form of a calamity – natural or man made. Since it is the nation that is being judged, even the righteous within will be affected.

    God’s blessing rested on our founding principles, including the notion that we are God-endowed with a right to Liberty. Slavery was a blot on that and God used calamity as a call to correct it. Finally, a great calamity – the Civil War – called us to repentance.

    So, yes, sin is allowed to continue for a “season” so that we might repent and be healed. That season, however, will end. If not with repentance, than with judgment.

    Smells bad to me.

    The train was moving at a pretty good clip. I don’t think you would brush off a kick to the head by a foot moving 20 MPH. I’m not an expert at getting kicked in the head, though, so I could be wrong.

    This is why they will continue to lose. They are too afraid of everything to stand for anything.

    I know what the Dems stand for. It’s clear as they utterly and mercilessly destroy anyone who steps out of line. I have no idea what the Republican Party stands for. Not a clue.

    What did they cut from the abortion topic?

    The platform is strongly pro-life. What did it say before?

    Gay marriage is a lot less important than the sanctity of life. It’s a social and cultural mistake, but abortion is murder and their platform does not seem to say otherwise.

    I loved the moment when the would-be robber grabbed that tray with his “gun” hand like something out of a comedy. Priceless.

    The key to Justice is Mercy. Justice without Mercy is Tyranny. Only a stone cold tyrant would demand 13 years from a forgotten con who’s lived the last 13 years exactly as we’d wish any other citizen to live.

    Those really aren’t bad suggestions. A lot of the whiny nature of our society stems from us letting other people have control over our mood or sense of self-worth. However, the explanations for those rules are horrible and show the writer(s) have the completely wrong intentions.

    Rule 7 is the only one I completely disagree with. Authority figures are there for a reason. It’s amazing that what is often common knowledge to the kids is completely unknown to the adults. Bullies infringe the rights of those they bully. That can’t be tolerated.

    The first step is to explain the situation to the person who has authority over it. If that does not work, we might have to violate rule 5.

    Really, science worshipers? Is your faith in science so weak that anyone who suggests an age for the Earth different from whatever the current guess is destroys your whole belief system? The fervor with which you all attack anyone who deviates from this inconsequential, meaningless bit of geological trivia is astounding. I just don’t get it.

    Does everyone need to know the current best “scientific” guess on the age to avoid condemnation or is there a cutoff point? If I say it’s 1 billion, am I to dumb to govern myself? What’s the minimum number of years I need to profess to keep you from advocating to send my kids to government-approved foster care?

    Because the flipping age of the earth is so important that anyone who disagrees with the latest scientific guess is to be shunned or placed into government foster care?

    Get a grip. It doesn’t really matter that much to anyone doing anything practical outside geology.
