December 1978, Richfield Coliseum in Ohio. Ted Nugent was headlining the show. Someone in the crowd started lighting firecrackers every few minutes and throwing them over the crowd. I don’t know what kind of firecrackers they were, but they were loud, even over Ted’s music (which was pretty loud). After a while, Nugent stopped the show and said, “If anybody happens to see whoever is throwing the firecrackers, I want you to catch the guy and eat his ******* face off!” Not another firecracker for the rest of the show.

Me and my wife was think don’t see wrong with that.
And when the movie bombs, instead of admitting “We made an awful movie,” Paramount will probably say, “You see? I TOLD you nobody wants to see religious movies any more. They never sell.”

Becca, I don’t think the issue is that it doesn’t sound like a child’s voice, because it does. But IMO the girl’s style has a maturity you don’t normally see in children… or considering today’s music scene, even in a lot of adults. That’s not normally my style of music, but I enjoyed watching her and would love to see more.

Jesus would never advocate this cult. He viewed the command to honor your father and mother as being so inviolable that He condemned the Pharisees for teaching that it’s better to give your money to God than to use it to help your parents (Matthew 15:1-9. Any religious group that deliberately isolates a person from their family and friends is a ravenous wolf in sheep’s clothing.

And who is the Author of gravity?
The Lord God almighty is truly the most magnificent of all artists. No one else comes close. He is always on display through His works.in the same way an artist is on display in a gallery even when the artist himself is nowhere to be seen.
And He wrote the greatest of all dramas, putting Himself on center stage by sending His Son to die for a world that hates Him.
Gravity requires no author, any more than does electromagnetism, radioactive decay, chemical reactions or any other properties of the universe.

The militarization of the police force seems to include the teaching of the Us Vs. Them mentality, and the attitude that everybody is a potential enemy. They didn’t used to be like this, but this is becoming more and more common.

Sorry, the second paragraph in my previous post should have began “Spencer laughed at him…” I don’t know how the word “laughed” got dropped, I remember typing it.

On p. 360-361 of her book “Shattered Dreams”, Irene Spencer wrote that a week after her son Seth entered kindergarten in California, the school psychologist informed her that Seth failed every psychology test given, appeared to be retarded and needed to be in a special class.
Spencer at him since Seth was one of her smartest children (out of 12), and asked to see the test. The psychologist replied, “Excuse me. I’m the psychologist here. I’m sorry if you disagree with me, but he must go into special classes. Still, I’ll be glad to show you the tests we gave him.”
He said “Seth was unable to identify any of these,” and showed her pictures of a baseball glove, Micky Mouse, a fireman, a policeman, and a fire hydrant before Spender stopped him.
She told him, “Seth has never seen any of these things. He’s lived in Mexico and Nicaragua all his life. Had you asked him what a burro was or a three-toed sloth, or a monkey, ox, coconut, banana, machete or sugarcane, he could have told you.”
She pointed to the picture on the next page. “This light bulb, for instance, he’s never seen one. We’ve always lived without electricity. In fact, I have to reprimand Seth most every time I hear the toilet flush. He’s in there tearing squares of toilet paper from the roll, watching excitedly as the tissue disappears. It’s all new to him. We’ve never had a flushing toilet before.”
The arrogance of these “specialists” is appalling.

This “predates the Biblical story of Noah”, which means that it predates Moses, the author of Genesis. The actual Flood, however, occurred much earlier. If this is from 4000 years ago, it’s actually from AFTER the time that the Flood is believed to have occurred.

You mean like the people who prosecuted Zimmerman for entirely political reasons?

I agree. What a wonderful story! Thank you for sharing this, Billy Hallowell :)

Government schools are acting more and more like they that think they own the children, and that parents are just an inconvenient way to store the children after hours when the school is closed.
I agree, but would add that government in general, not just government schools, are usurping parental authority. The UN treaties on the "rights" of children and people with disabilities are just two more ways the government is trying to put itself in the position of the one to make choices "in our best interests". Not just for our children, not just for people with disabilities, but for us. Making a title that says the treaties are about protecting "rights" is equivalent to titling obamacare the "affordable care act" - it's not affordable and it does't care, but the title says it is and does, so it must be true . . . . . right?
Government has an ordained purpose, but what we see anymore is way outside that purpose.

I’d consider the truck to be a weapon, too.
In addition to what you said, if you listen to the audio (around 3:37), the police say twice that he was going the wrong way down a road. I’m not trying to excuse the police if this turns out to be excessive force, but chasing a suspect the wrong way on a one-way road really gets their adrenaline pumping (or so says a highway patrol friend of mine). But as soon as the one officer said that he was going the wrong way, another officer, realizing that things were getting out of hand, said, “We know the suspect, so we can probably back it off.” Sad for the dad that they didn’t take his advice.
I've seen police chases for hours in LA and no shooting. They do everything else to stop them but they don't shoot unless they are shot at. They wear them down by following them and hope they will run out of gas before anything happens. I've seen them try to ram the police cars, etc. but they still don't shoot. This was reckless on the part of the police. They usually back off when they feel they are causing the runner to take excessive risks. They have gotten trigger happy all over the country, killing dogs and people for no reason.

I agree 100%. But even taking the moral free fall into account, this still doesn’t make sense. What did they think was going to happen after they released her?
“Hey, I have an idea! Let’s lie (or misspeak, as Obama puts it) to get her over here, force her to f*** me and beat her to a pulp until she consents. It’ll be fun! We’ll all laugh about it with her for years to come because we’ll record it and put it on YouTube. She’ll be an InstaStar” Is that really what they thought? Because this completely baffles me. Did they really think they wouldn’t be found out, that she wouldn’t tell anybody? Broken bones, extremely swollen eyes and a bleeding ear are kind of hard to hide. Are these people even sane? It’s not just morals–these people seem to have no concept of consequences.
And I bet they blame the victim for their being in jail/JD.

It’s worse than that. The judge in New Mexico signed the rape order.

“most experts today can not aim”?
Which sling-experts are you talking about, Tim? People do know how to use slings today, but proficiency was much more widespread in ancient times when people had to catch their own food (even today it is considered to be a good wilderness survival tool). Slings were efficient at killing birds, rabbits, and other hard-to-catch animals, and they were used in combat, too.
But I seriously question Gladwell’s take on “superior technology”. Superior technology did not kill the giant. What killed the giant was the Lord of Hosts, the great I AM, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. With God on his side, David could have killed Goliath with a feather.

It worked for the Progressives. They couldn’t get anywhere running on 3rd party tickets either. But when they decided to infiltrate the Democratic party instead, they took it over so completely that it’s hard to even separate Democrat and Progressive in your thinking. Why not do that with the GOP? We’re certainly not much better off with a RINO than a Dem anyway, but one of them will almost always win.
BTW, when I first saw (on FB) “Don’t split the vote and hand the win to the Dems. Vote Cuccinelli”, I thought, “Yeah, right. I’m not voting for someone I don’t like just to keep someone else I don’t like out.” But then I realized I don’t really know much about Cuccinelli. What if he’s a real conservative? Maybe I should investigate.
As should we all. Don’t just react. Research.

We shouldn’t get so focused on the web site itself (except in relation to the massive waste of taxpayer money) since web sites can be repaired. Obamacare is not a web site. Obamacare is the real train wreck, not some web site that can be fixed. STAY FOCUSED, PEOPLE!
