    I’m sure it’s all very credible… science and medicine haven’t whored themselves out to the highest bidder for the last 30 years or anything… Junk.

    Blaze, why do you keep running these apologists for Hollywood filth (clickbait) ? So this guy has a doctorate in theology huh? Whatever, Obama claims he’s a Christian too, Biden and Pelosi claim they’re Catholics. Anybody that believes what people say and not what they do is a child. In any case, there’s nothing that can be said that will erase the fact that Gaia worship, population control and murder (as in Noah considering murdering his family to save the planet) counter biblical (charitably). So Hollywood says here, watch this sacrilegious crap and be grateful. No. Screw you Hollywood and your many nominally “Christian” apologists. I expect it will bomb. Good.

    Little Arab kids are cute as a button… the parents let them run around like feral cats though. Too bad the Palestinian media is going to program most of them into little terrorist wannabees.

    Actually no big surprise here. It’s very typical that allegations are made that the QDRs are political documents as opposed to documents that indicate any sort of reality. It’s why Rand Corp and other think tanks are used to actually drive some sort of policy. The 2010 QDR suggested that future conflict would be counterinsurgency style from now till the end of eternity, and yet the service chiefs pushed for training installations to go from COIN based training scenarios to a conventional conflict.

    As an aside, the Army never liked COIN, they started pushing the conventional after Petreus left – didn’t want to embarrass him. Conspiracy suggests that conventional is a big pile of money to defense contractors (lots of tanks and planes blown up)…but it could very well be that senior people noticed COIN was an epic failure.

    The push for the last couple years in the Army has been to dump COIN training scenarios and go for a primarily conventional fight (with a taste of COIN at the end). But over the last three years, a large percentage of the contract instructors have been cut (the retired vets with 20+ years of experience in whatever field) and training will be conducted less often and by junior people.

    Blaze, you got a single person (obviously Buck Sexton didn’t attend very many courses) conversant with counterterrorism courses? FBI has extensive material on this…how to make a terrorist is to get them while they’re imprinting, this isn’t new science, been out there for about a century now? I’m available for hire and have a better resume than your chump hipster…

    Some of that I agree with, but I think that cutting troops is a significant mistake – made in the face of the OEF/OIF efforts, which clearly showed that a lack of troops means that holding ground could only be done in a handful of strongholds, which ensured that the COIN strategy was ultimately a failure. I would cut R&D and advanced weapon platforms (temporarily) before I cut troops. The high tech stuff is great if you’re facing a first world military who agrees to go toe to toe with you, but it was a waste and mostly useless against unconventional fighters using low tech equipment.

    A lot of problems with that. First, you don’t find a special forces soldier at bottom of the cereal box, it takes years to produce one – and just graduating a SOF entry school doesn’t make them good. Second, drones and tech are fine, but they’re next to useless against unconventional forces (you’ll note it took 10 years to find UBL… so a thumb drive and internet cafe defeated a multibillion dollar military). And third, Iraq is lost and Afghanistan will go down as a defeat also – technology and drones don’t hold ground, people do. We didn’t accomplish anything in AFG because of the lack of troops with the exception of the immediate vicinity of a FOB, COP or Kabul – five minutes off the road in any direction was Taliban country… and since we didn’t have people all over the place anybody we convinced to cooperate with us was beheaded as soon as we left…meaning any so-called cooperation was just mouthing words, waiting for our pre-announced exit date.

    Well, we should just make people do whatever it is that we want anytime we feel like it, especially if it’s popular. As I recall, Muslim cabbies can refuse service who whomever they like. Cops have no obligation to protect anybody (per SCOTUS). I always love people that in a different conversation are all about Freedom, Liberty, Constitutional rights – such as Freedom of Association…but think forcing people to act against their conscience is perfectly fine.

    I think environmentalism is the new communism… gays are just a tyranny of the minority.

  • February 26, 2014 at 5:54pm

    Jesus didn’t have to address it directly. Try Mathew 5:17-20.

  • February 26, 2014 at 5:51pm

    Freedom of association is a right. So what somebody wants to be a jerk at their private business? Certainly the offended party could go someplace else. Plus, if you force the issue, like force somebody to bake you a cake – would you be stupid enough to eat it? Why should the coercive power of government be employed to force you to do something you don’t want to do? Why should Christians be forced to do whatever the gays want?

    Probably a Glock 20. 10mm is around .41 magnum power level.

    People looked at the script already, it’s awful. Try this link: http://godawa.com/movieblog/darren-aronofskys-noah-environmentalist-wacko/

    “For 10 years or more we’ve been asking Hollywood to create biblical films. Now that they’re doing it, do we really want to get upset with them?”

    Well then, why don’t we just do a porn film and paint crosses on everybody’s backs and buttocks? Then we can use it as an “opportunity to share our faith”. It’s going to be and environmentalist whacko fantasy, featuring Noah the psycho near serial murderer – all in the name of saving the planet from humans. And why are these people trying to insult our intelligence by pretending that it’s “hard” to make a good movie that can be enjoyed by Christians (despite ample evidence that good, accurate films can make a lot of money) ? Why do they need to insert their Leftist politics in there (in addition to debunked Malthusian disaster theory) especially when its 180 degrees opposed to “be fruitful and multiply” and “subdue the earth” ?

    I’m not going to see it. I predict $100 million bomb.

    I’m not going to see it, here’s why: http://godawa.com/movieblog/darren-aronofskys-noah-environmentalist-wacko/

    The Iranians have a bunch of sleeper cells in the US. DoD thinks they’ll only be activated in the event of an imminent regime change.

  • February 20, 2014 at 5:53pm

    I remember that move Idiocracy…that movie suggested that rednecks breeding would create a populace of idiots in the future – except it’s the Left that’s doing it now.

    There’s always a certain amount of rebellion by the time a child leaves the house. I was an awfully bad “preachers kid” in my early Army days. In Perry’s case, that an awfully heathen drug, sex and party filled environment she’s entered in to. See what she says about all this when the music tastes change and she’s not as popular and older (less attractive) – if she doesn’t die by OD.

    “Other officials think the low registration numbers are due to ignorance on behalf of gun owners who aren’t aware of the new law.”

    Um. Yes, that’s it. What’s up with people electing all these tools to office?
