  • The Rick Santorum Record: The original Ted Cruz, but with George W. Bush baggage

    05/27/2015 2:55:48 PM PDT · 19 of 23
    Blackyce to 2ndDivisionVet

    Can anyone imagine anyone confusing Cruz with Santorum? Santorum was a key man in RINO leadership before his loss in 2006. His support for Specter wasn’t accidental, it was party line. He was one of the favorites for WHIP in the next session going into the 2006 campaign. In more recent times, he not only failed to support the tea party movement, but he spent most of the early Tea Party years accusing them of being a Libertarian putsch within the Republican party. Santorum is basically a straight down the line establishment guy, who’s a bit too openly religious for their tastes.

    On policy, Cruz is everything movement conservatives have always wanted, why waste time and energy splitting our votes again?

    “I’m wondering...... how is one seat an impressive showing? Am I missing something?”

    Because of the funky nature of UK districting, the SNP won 4.7% of the vote and got 56 seats. UKIP won 12.6% of the national vote and won one seat. I suppose that getting an eighth of the votes in the country is still impressive for a minor party, however ineffective the effort was. I still think they’d be better off trying to takeover the Conservative party internally, but I can understand their disdain for Cameron and Co.

    Right and Left don’t really mean the same things in Israeli politics. Netanyahu’s coalition is a complete mess. He’s allied himself with all of the religious parties, most of whom are socialist leaning welfare statists and a centrist party that wants more government intervention in the national economy. He’s lost Avigdor Lieberman in the negotiation process, which means he’s ruling by one vote. He’s going to be herding cats from day one to get even the most basic functions of government to move along. If Lieberman stays out of the coalition, they’ll be having new elections within a year.

    “Of course there are questions about how this man died. But saying that a lengthy arrest record for violence and drugs isn’t ‘that bad’, as the other posted stated, is in my view completely insane. Of course it’s bad. It’s a terrible record. That doesn’t mean this wasn’t a wrongful death, it may well have been. But that is a separate issue from my comment.”

    It’s just not relevant. Every time there’s a discussion of a police related homicide on FR, random freeper starts a side conversation about what a bad person the decedent was. The government doesn’t get to kill people for being bad citizens. If the government arrests someone without a physical altercation and then that person ends up dead with his spine nearly severed, I’d like to know what happened to him. This isn’t Moscow, we’re supposed to care how the government behaves here.

    “If Federal law has called something like illegal immigration or illegal drug use or same sex marriage unlawful, choosing not to enforce the law seems like a dereliction of duty. Now if you want to rally the country to change the law or repeal the law via proper legislative change, that’s another thing.”

    It wasn’t federal statute that made marijuana(medical or otherwise) illegal. It was the DEA classifying it as a schedule I drug, which is ridiculous. Cocaine, Opium, and Morphine aren’t even schedule II drugs. They can reschedule the drug any time they like. It’s within the Executive Branch’s authority to alter the regulations or change how they’re enforced. There’s no need to repeal any laws at all, as congress never passed any. That’s without going into whether the controlled substances act is even constitutional in the first place.

    “Me thinks the journalists at Reason are afraid Cruz would enforce Federal pot laws.”

    At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) last week, Ted Cruz responded to a question about marijuana legalization in Colorado by endorsing a federalist approach to the issue. “I actually think this is a great embodiment of what Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis called ‘the laboratories of democracy,’” the Texas senator said. “If the citizens of Colorado decide they want to go down that road, that’s their prerogative. I personally don’t agree with it, but that’s their right.”

  • Martin Luther Playmobil Toy is Fastest-Selling of All Time

    Blackyce to Vigilanteman

    I think it’s important to not underplay his anti-semitism as I think it’s had a lingering effect on European thought through the centuries. The Nazis used the treatise “On the Jews and Their Lies”(1543) as a key part of their propaganda campaign in the run up to the war and throughout it. Section XI of the treatise urged Christians:

    to burn down Jewish synagogues and schools and warn people against them;
    to refuse to let Jews own houses among Christians;
    for Jewish religious writings to be taken away;
    for rabbis to be forbidden to preach;
    to not offer protection for Jews on highways;
    for usury to be prohibited, and for all silver and gold to be removed, put aside for safekeeping and given back to Jews who truly convert; and
    to give young, strong Jews flail, axe, spade, spindle, and let them earn their bread in the sweat of their noses.

    The shocking thing is that this is the same man who had written in 1523: “If I had been a Jew and had seen such dolts and blockheads govern and teach the Christian faith, I would sooner have become a hog than a Christian. They have dealt with the Jews as if they were dogs rather than human beings; they have done little else than deride them and seize their property. When they baptize them they show them nothing of Christian doctrine or life, but only subject them to popishness and monkery... If the apostles, who also were Jews, had dealt with us Gentiles as we Gentiles deal with the Jews, there would never have been a Christian among the Gentiles ... When we are inclined to boast of our position [as Christians] we should remember that we are but Gentiles, while the Jews are of the lineage of Christ. We are aliens and in-laws; they are blood relatives, cousins, and brothers of our Lord. Therefore, if one is to boast of flesh and blood the Jews are actually nearer to Christ than we are...If we really want to help them, we must be guided in our dealings with them not by papal law but by the law of Christian love. We must receive them cordially, and permit them to trade and work with us, that they may have occasion and opportunity to associate with us, hear our Christian teaching, and witness our Christian life. If some of them should prove stiff-necked, what of it? After all, we ourselves are not all good Christians either.”

    Luther was a great man, but as he aged he grew bitter, jaded and hateful towards Jews and Judaism. I think younger Luther was convinced that the conversion of the Jews was just a matter of time if Christians would just treat them nicely. When he realized they weren’t going to leap into the arms of Jesus any time soon, he started to see them as the enemy.

    “Good is ALWAYS a relative term. Saudi royal family is better than ISIS. Lets hope it stays in their hands”

    The problem with the Saudis is that they helped to create the fundamentalist branch of Islam that is destroying their region and radicalizing their religion.

    They never intended to create the current situation, but they’re responsible for it just the same. The House of Saud has protected and promoted the Wahhabist sect for centuries now. Initially used an alliance with the Wahhabis to consolidate their power in Arabia and they have kept up their end of the bargain ever since. They’ve promoted that peculiar brand of fundamentalism globally for the last century or so, and it’s been bearing fruit for the last few decades. On the one hand they fight extremism as ruthlessly as anyone, on the other hand they’re building mosques globally which are used to spread the messages of many of the same men who are provoking attacks on them and the west. The regime’s behavior is senseless.

    “What is the purpose of making such a statement at this point in time?”

    They’ve never actually directly admitted to being wrong and they teach their children that they were simply the victims of circumstance in the early 20th century. The best they can bring themselves to do is state that they regret the poor relations they had with certain countries in the past and the related suffering. By most accounts there’s actually more self pity in Japan over Hiroshima/Nagasaki than regret over the tens of millions dead in Asia. They’ve still not even apologized for Pearl Harbor despite our six decade long alliance. I think Americans tend to downplay how evil the Japanese regime actually was because of more visible horrors of the Holocaust. Nobody would fault Jewish people for holding a grudge against Nazi sympathizers, why do people fault Koreans, Filipinos, Burmese, Chinese, etc for holding a grudge against a Japanese government that has had a laughably hard time admitting that they did anything wrong when they were invading, murdering, raping and enslaving their way across Asia. Just getting them to apologize for so called “comfort” women was a half century long exercise in tooth pulling.

    We’re allies with Germany and Japan, we’ve moved on as a country, but I’m not going to begrudge Jewish/Polish or Korean/Japanese folks from holding onto their grudges for another generation or two.

    “This is a flawed world and America has chosen to reject God.”

    America hasn’t “chosen” anything at all. Every time the people of America have had a choice theyve chosen the traditional definition of marriage. Frankly it’s just not up to us anymore. There are enough leftists on the federal bench now, that they can collectively do just about anything they want to do without reproach and without any recourse for their political opposition. Plural marriage is right around the corner. Total degeneration of the institution shortly there after. Marriage is finished in this country from a functional standpoint. Most of the younger generation won’t even bother. They don’t see any difference between being married and just shacked up. They think marriage is about romantic love, and not the utility of the institution to society. Conservatives have to embrace a certain amount libertarianism now to protect ourselves, and stop worrying so much about the government’s for in promoting a positive culture. Democracy is dead. They really don’t care what we think or why. The only thing we can do about that is push back against the use of government coercion on every level.

The fact that an easily identifiable commercial airliner was shot down instead of another military transport is the only thing that keeps me from believing this was done by idiot separatists rather than the Russians themselves. In any case, the responsibility for this falls directly onto the Putin regime absent an absolutely magnificent false flag operation run by the Ukrainians(which is kind of a tough sell given that the separatists were peacocking about the hit on the internet moments after the plane went down.

    “After entering the motel office, A.R.(the victim) turned around to shut the door completely when Williams(the defendant) grabbed A.R. by his throat and pushed him into the bathroom in the office. Williams told A.R. to not say anything or scream and that if A.R. did, Williams would choke A.R. harder. Williams locked the bathroom door and told A.R. “to take [Williams’s] pants down and take [A.R.’s pants] down and pretty much grope him and cause him to [become] erect.” (R. 113.) A.R. complied. Williams told A.R. to bend over and, after A.R. bent over a mop bucket, Williams proceeded to sodomize A.R. While sodomizing him, Williams bit A.R. on the neck and asked him, “Where were you last night?” (R. 114.) After Williams finished, he “told [A.R.] to open the door and see if anybody was in the lobby.” (R. 115.) After A.R. verified that no one was in the motel lobby, the men walked out of the bathroom and A.R. went to his desk. For the next 45 minutes Williams “hovered around” A.R. and then returned to the lobby. (R. 116.)

    After Williams left the office of the motel, A.R. sent a text message to one of his coworkers, asking her to come to the motel. The coworker came to the motel and, after William left the lobby, A.R. told her what Williams had done. The next day A.R. told his mother what had happened and the police were notified. A.R. went to a hospital, where nurse Patricia Anthony performed a sexual-assault examination on him. Torey Williams of the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences received the sexual-assault kit and determined that material obtained from rectal and genital swabs taken from A.R. matched a DNA sample Williams had provided.

    In his case-in-chief Williams presented the testimony of three character witnesses. Williams also testified in his own defense, acknowledging that he had sodomized A.R. but stating that A.R. had consented to the sodomy.

  • Court: Alabama Can't Criminalize Gay Sex

    The supreme Court has already determined that it is unconstitutional to legislate against consensual sex acts, that’s not in dispute. But this was a RAPE CASE. Alabama’s statute’s don’t allow rape of a male by a male to be prosecuted under their rape laws, they have a separate statute for sodomy in the first degree. The court determined that the lesser included offense of sexual misconduct was unconstitutional, which is obviously true, as it just bans deviate sexual intercourse by anyone of any gender at any time in any place regardless of consent. The thing is, without the jury instruction on the easier to decide lesser included offense the guy might have been convicted of the actual rape. Here we have a guy may have raped another man and gotten away with it and leftists want to trumpet his success in avoiding a lesser included offense as a gar rights victory?

    “Probably ever since we left.”

    Don’t be so naive.

    This was their only play. Let the Iranians fight for them. Waiting for Obama to act would only get them beheaded.
