    You would make that statement and then sign a document with those words and these “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”?

    Really?

    Explain? Its your moment to shine.

    Help me out here. Which type of people? How do you identify types of people?

    Are you suggesting that because of your superior intellect you can tell if a person can be reasoned with or not? Good trick, show me.

    Could be. Now explain the video.

    What was the officer trying to accomplish with each blow? Cooperation? For the victim of the blows to do what, remain defenseless Gandhi style or what is natural guard against the blows.

    How much time was he allowing to measure if he was accomplishing his goal between strikes?

    Would a reasonable person agree the officer was trying to subdue the situation with each blow?

    Did you read the story. Another home had a dog that barked and scared the perp away.

    Perp must have only cased the Le home using your logic.

    Faith

    When you come to the edge of all that is know
    Faith is knowing that one of two things will happen
    You will be given something solid to stand on
    Or you will be taught how to fly.

    Faith, like wind, is not something we can see. Yet we can see its effects.

    Is Christianity a philosophy for living or a religion? If those were your two choices, to believe in Christianity or a religion, which is superior in your daily life? Does following that choice in your daily life require faith? Can you follow untruths?

    Does reading the Bible change the truth or remind you of the truth? Would a reminder on your everyday person also serve as a reminder?

    Faith, Persistence, Community

    Creeping ignorance… disinformation repeated turns into George chopped down the cherry tree.

    Take a few minutes to read the Constitution.

    Then get back to us with the words you say allow the federal government to get into the HealthCare insurance business or any for profit business.

    Is Christianity a religion or philosophy on living?

    Is the Bible a book on religion or a book on Christianity that some religions use as a reference?

    In 1782 the Continental Congress distributed the Aitken Bible to schools as a text book for the study of morality and ethics. Today neither subject is taught in public schools.

    People tend to do what they have done before.

    Is this the change you expected?

    Have you not researched the status of our education system? Since 1970 we have more than tripled our spending per student, reduced our class sizes, increased our staffing at a rate surpassing the student population growth and according to NAEP test results have not statistically improved test results in over 40 years. In worldwide education comparison our standing is continuing to fall. All nation with superior scores are spending less than the United States, most nations with better scores are spending about half as much per student compared to the United States.

    Sixty plus years ago the federal government starting with the Impact Aid Act of 1950 followed by the Great Society’s 1965 Title One grant money and in 1979 with the creation of the Department of Education our nation made a concerted effort via centralizing education to provide for the educational needs of our widely diverse nation. Our basic skills test scores have plummeted. Over 95% of our rural communities are on the path to extinction having suffered decades of continuous population loss. Major cities are filing for bankruptcy, urban slums are growing, the percentage of population not working is growing as our national debt sets a new record high day after day, year after year.

    FDR and his fire side chats.

    In the age of compulsory K-12 education that ranks 22nd against world competition while spending several times more per student than superior performing countries how could our citizens lack the skills to negotiate their own wages?

    I think it was JFK who said something about the illiterate being easier to deceive as his reason for starting the New Frontier Program which LBJ evolved into the War on Poverty, the signature program of the Great Society.

    It was LBJ that begin spending huge federal sums on education while the results plummeted to the bottom they have maintained since 1970. Money the LBJ printed eventually leading to Nixon taking us off the silver standard when we had 80 billion in circulation and 12 billion in gold reserves.

    Since then those savings dollars have melted. The only difference between the Federal Reserve note and Monopoly money is the difficulty in counterfeiting it not the value it represents.

    From that we bicker about who makes the most wages paid in money with no value supporting it.

    Back to the meeting your accused. The officer reviewing the information is not a witness to the incident, instead a witness to a representation of the incident recorded by a fallible machine. Proof of fallibility is in the repair and maintenance costs incurred.

    I worked all over the world fixing intermittently operating machines that teams of experts had failed to fix after repeated efforts.

    Would the person sending the citation be as willing to send it if the citation they signed included wording of this nature?
    “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

    Lets hear it for peace or piece.

    In 1964 the man who has a 99% against civil rights voting record passed a civil rights bill that was first penned in 1875 by the young republican party.

    Since that day the education cost per student has tripled while our graduate’s knowledge has declined to below levels surpassed by nations spending less than half.

    Since that day in 1964 our education standings plummeted to basement standings of 1970 and have remained statistically unchanged since. Those are the facts that make Kathleen Sebelius proud.

    Since 1964 unmarried mothers have increased from 5% to 40%. College graduates driving cabs, clerking in stores has surpasses the number of degree chemists working in chemistry or number of degree architects working in architectural industry.

    Since 1964 the percentage of our nation’s work force not working has increased several fold.

    All for centralized education stand up… you need to stand for something or fall for anything.

    In Texas, off the base, are soldiers allowed to open carry?
    On any any base are soldiers allowed to open carry?

    When is the last time a number of people were shot off the base?
    We know when a number of people were shot on the base.

    Saw the month immediately… didn’t realize it was hidden.

    Is it true that birds of a feather gather together. Who gathers with Joe? Why?

    Joe is another example of the compulsory education effect. Nothing to say about the facts, attack the personality.

    Ask this guy and all who give testimony to congress, on the congressional floor, in speeches, during interviews etc to sign this statement “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”

    Then the truth of their statements has meaning or they loose all their life’s work to that time.
