    Yeah, Trump was never like that before that early debate. That’s what made him a thin-skinned egotist. That question. Uh-huh.

    Where does God command us to keep and protect the institution of slavery?

    And writing regulations for an activity is an endorsement of the activity? So our government endorses smoking cigarettes because it regulates it? Folks write regulations for pornography because they want it in their neighborhoods? This is all news to me. I thought governments regulated activity to discourage its usage.

    Abolishing slavery was spearheaded by Christians because of what the Bible says about humans – primarily, that we are created in His image. Being made in His image means we share His attributes, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Without this notion that each human is uniquely crafted in the image of God and thus infinitely valuable, we would not have sought to end the toil and drudgery of not only slaves, but just the average low-born person.

    Why am I so sure of that? Because no other culture did it. India, China, Arabia – they all minimize the value of the individual, and they all fell. The West is unique in the value it it assigns to each individual and because of that was able to tap the potential of millions of persons ignored in the other cultures. This idea of the worth and potential of all humans comes from Christian philosophy.

    Endorses slavery?

    I can see how one would argue He failed to condemn it and even went so far as to accept it as an institution, but where did He endorse it? It seems to me that saying God endorses slavery is the same as saying failing to vote for Trump is an endorsement of Hillary.

    In fact, slavery was an universally accepted institution. Every major culture accepted it as legal and, to some degree, regulated it. Only one culture ever declared it abhorrent and made it illegal on its own. That culture forced the world to view it likewise. The Christian West. That wasn’t by accident nor was it a coincidence.

    Good catch, Vlad. Monogamous marriage was not the norm until Christianity dominated the culture. These passages are what lead Christians to change the culture as they did. The Bible does not condemn polygamous marriages, but it only praises monogamous ones.

    Mary and Joseph had children together, Usagi. The author of the book of James was one of these persons.

    Just like everyone voting for Trump – and Clinton.

    Looks like Kelly has grounds for a good libel lawsuit after Trump eases the restrictions on them.

    The reason this gets thrown under the conspiracy theory bus is that “Shadow Government” implies some sinster force is pulling the strings and willfully screwing the American public. As if we could find that one guy at the head and defeat him in a classic action movie showdown.

    It’s not so much like that as a ton a bureaucrats coming in every day and pushing their papers around trying to increase their budgets neither caring about, nor even giving a lot of thought to how their decisions effect the whole. Any one of those ‘crats has no effect. All of them together is a monster we can’t kill.

    The solution really isn’t that hard. Stop giving the government so much money. With less government money to go after, the “military industrial complex” will go looking for it elsewhere and leave us be.

    But we can’t even get the people who are being fleeced to vote to stop the fleecing. So here we are, doomed.

    Anyone can call themselves a conservative. It doesn’t mean that they fit the definition anyone else uses or the definition most commonly held in the culture.

    Some have even called themselves that to try to win influence in votes, i reckon.

    Just like Christian or any other title that means something to a lot of folks and nothing to others.

    Trump called Allred a third-rate lawyer?

    Is that libel? Can she sue?

    Libel is already not protected – Hulk Hogan taught us that earlier this year.

    But it was on Hogan to make the case in court. Trumps can do the same, if he has a case. Hogan is a public figure, he still got a hefty judgement against Gawker. Freedom of the Press didn’t save them because there is no right to lie (unless you are in law enforcement).

    It’s also really hard to make a legitimate claim of harm when you been nominated for the presidency by the Republican party. Oh yeah, his reputation has just been shattered.

    If the 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments aren’t honored, none of the rest matter as they can be stripped at any time by the whims of a capricious government. He’s not pro-2nd amendment if he’s in favor of rendering it moot by giving unchecked bureaucrats the power to put names on a list and then forcing those persons to spend time and money fighting to get off it.

    You have a right to bear arms and a natural right to self-defense. You have no inherent right to shoot anyone.

    To apply this to your First Amendment article, you’d have to say you have the right to your own opinion, bit no right to actually speak it. Every tyrant in history – even the most despicable – as afforded his slaves that right.

    If Trump does manage to open the libel laws, I hope he is sued by every single person he has gone after with his petty insults.

    Third presidential election in a row where Dems/Progs chose the Republican nominee.

  • October 23, 2016 at 8:56pm

    He’s not worth it, Doc Gondola. If you want to have a discussion, if you want to put forth a reasoned argument, I’ll remember your name. You and Hannaty deserve each other.

    Once you learn that everyone who doesn’t support your lord and master is automatically supporting Hillary, come back and let’s have a chat.

  • [-1] October 23, 2016 at 8:59am

    It’s cute you think you can form an opinion about me worth reading without even reading two sentences you hit “reply” under, let alone anything else I’ve written here.

  • [28] October 22, 2016 at 8:04pm

    WikiLeaks is dangerous and we should work to block them, but if they stick to corruption and avoid releasing National Security secrets, it’s hard to fault them.

    Hanity, however, is another story. I can’t find anything but fault in that clown. He loves when it suits him and hates when it suits him. He’s unstable. He’s a Republican through and through.

    Really? What favors have I asked the trumpets for while insulting their intelligence, their morals, and their consciences? The only thing I’ve asked of you is to make a coherent argument in favor of voting for him and all you’ve ever given me in return is “yeah, well Hillary is worse and you support her.”

    Unintelligent, uninspiring, untruthful, pitiful blabbering because your candidate is the second-most rotten person to ever run for the office whose only saving grace, by your own admission, is he’s running against the first-most rotten.

    Own your own failure of a candidate. I won’t.

  • [8] October 20, 2016 at 7:13pm

    If we can’t keep our consciences clean, what do we have left? What we have now and neither Trump nor Clinton is going to change it.

  • [18] October 20, 2016 at 6:57pm

    They care more about being a celebrity than they do about this country, us, or being conservatives.

  • [28] October 20, 2016 at 6:56pm

    Trumpies would never get us to support Trump, but they could have gotten us to vote for him without being vocal about it but they attack us with more glee and vinegar than they do Hillary. Really – this is how you think you make friends and influence people?

    Now Ingram’s got blood coming out of her whatever because people like me remain unconvinced that Trump is a conservative when he’s obviously not? She can get bent, as I’m sure she will when Trump gets around to her.
