    Why isn’t anybody asking for the dash cam footage or body cam footage? Much of this could be squashed if we could get more facts. As it is we will be forced to watch hours of propaganda. I don’t want to spend the next 6 mo. listening to crap when 5 min of film would answer pro or con.

    None of this will matter in the end. The cop will be the key. If he was making an arrest, why was he not cuffed? You can't grab someone through a car window and hope to control them. The perp MUST be cuffed and searched BEFORE he gets in the back seat. If the perp wrestled him in the car, he might get away with the shot in the car, but if he was running away with no weapon, it gets dicey. Shooting someone as they stand with their hands up, never gonna fly. Hope that there is some film footage of the altercation that uphold the cops story. All cops today,(IMO) have a camera that records everything.

    You can't justify shooting because you are angry and you don't want to run after someone.

    The messages aren’t all that mixed if you pay attention. Almost everything he says has to be corrected by someone or the nuances have to be pointed out because we are too dumb to understand he’s a Communist. The “tell” for me was when he had to explain his comment on a new beginning about sodomy. The Bible is plain and the church has handled sin for thousands of years and now that we have a new pope we must re examine how we approach homosexuals? Is it to make excuses for priests? I don’t know. Sorry, I don’t trust him and I won’t defend him. I think he will be a disaster for the church. Just look at South America and Central America and see that almost all are left wing activists. They will sell out Jesus for a new program for the poor. That’s his background. It’s the same disease Pelosi and Kerry have. They compare taking the children from Honduras across the border to Jesus going to Egypt as they kill babies and embrace homosexuality. Jesus says He never knew them even as they said Lord Lord.

    I've always been drawn to libertarianism all my life, but I could never pull the trigger because they always end up in some amoral, absolutists, anarchist, place I couldn't go. Our Founders were Christians with guns and that's the way they designed the countries laws. Libertarians always end up denying the Christian part. If taking drugs destroys your life, people cared enough to figure that destroys their citizens. If we want to control who comes in the country, we need a border or we will end up like the hell hole they are escaping. Can anyone really believe our founders thought we should be able to abort God's gift to women because they might get stretch marks ? Should we not mingle with the world's politics for future generational security? I understand all the arguments pro and con, but to leave critical thinking out in order to keep some pure principle denies the real world experience.

    It's sort of scary to think they would see a person laying in the street, in their own vomit, with a needle in their arm, and walk by muttering, He's on his own and whatever doesn't affect me is on his head". After watching libertarians for over 50 years, it seems that's where they always aim and it always ends up towards the anarchy end of the scale with no "brothers keeper" feel to it. Just as we see right now, Obama is ignoring the plight of almost everyone around the globe, what he is setting up for our kids is a world drowning in evil set against America's existence. It angers the libertarians to say "Obama is acting libertarian in world affairs", but that is exactly what they prescribe. In two or 3 years, we will be facing a reunited Soviet Union with nukes aimed at us, our children dead or in jail for what they've done on drugs, and a country with no border that looks more like Honduras than Honduras. We could use a libertarian as Treasury Secretary, but for little else. Our Founders told us that the Constitution is only good for a religious, moral people, because they knew the human heart was evil and needed regulation, if not by God, by law. As we fall further from God, we have more and more law. Freedom is a concept no one could conceive but our founders 250 years ago, and even today, using us as a template, it seems no one else can even emulate what they have seen here. I've often said we should go to another country and offer a Bible and a copy of our Constitution to follow our footsteps, but the character of an American Christian is almost inconceivable to a foreigner. They almost always opt for absolutism of some sort. If conservatives lose the Republican party, we will have sentenced ourselves to decades of pain for no reason. Libertarians have been split forever between the social issues of the Democrats and the economic issues of the Republicans. A "Rockefeller" Republican was basically a guy wanting a tax cut and lower spending, but leave me alone on social issues. It seems we were there for most of my life until the silent majority came in and the Gingrich revolution a little later. IMO, you can try to handle all the economic and social issues all you want, but if God isn't the center of the reason you do it, it will always fail. Put God first, and everything else will take care of itself. We have been a blessed nation for over 200 years, but I fear that is over. Born again Christians have been marginalized by hedonistic Dems and libertarian Repubs. There is a third way, the way of the Founders,....Freedom with God as our King. Without God, there can be no freedom.

    Sorry, I couldn’t finish your screed. Dazzling with BS is not the same as making a point. The reason Obamacare is illegal is it forces people to pay a fine just for breathing in America. Call it a tax or a penalty, you still have to participate just for being here. I don’t see the connection with libertarianism. Roberts was wrong. Paying attention to minutia is not the same as looking to Original Intent. This is why most people hate lawyers. They can argue for 2 days to make you thing white is black.

    It's early, so I will have to digest what you are saying. Off the cuff, I don't agree. I'm sure there might be some sort of case to be made, but as of right now, I don't see it.

    In my mind we are losing our rights because we have been convinced we are a democracy and not a republic. If 51% votes to lose the second amendment, would we lose it? What we are seeing now is the public is slowly losing the thought that sodomy is an abomination so the liberals and hedonists "claim" a right they never had. Enough people have been convinced that our Founders were Deists and the Constitution didn't come out of the Bible. We should have individual rights and responsibilities, but for decades now we have had group or "corporate" status. Let me read the supplied link.

    Gay marriage, legal dope and abortion are all libertarian. I don’t guess people are really reading my posts. Not responding to Putin and pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan are all libertarian ideas. No more foreign entanglements, ya know. If you go to a pot party and talk to these morons, they are all libertarians. Legalizing dope has been the answer to all American ills for decades now. Ask a libertarian their opinion on gay marriage. Now who else is in favor of gay marriage? It’s wacky you don’t see that.

    No, I’m not nut’s. I’m trying to figure out what sort of “libertarian” you are. Are you economic or social, or both? All I’ve seen so far is a complaining libertarian, that no one seems intelligent enough to understand where you are coming from. Even though we can’t understand your superior arguments, we appreciate your participation with the underlings. We all understand federalism and state vs, federal, I’m just trying to find out if you want gay marriage or a tax cut or both. My point is you can’t have both. If we get social chaos, the budget woes won’t matter. It’s like a Christian Democrat,....there’s no such animal.

    AHH, but you are wrong, grasshopper. He is libertarian on almost his entire approach,....except economics. Many libertarians are libertarians for the economics of it. Many young libertarians are there just for legal dope. The typical libertarian is in Denver Colorado partying right now. They want legal sodomy and legal abortion also. Many want the border removed completely. I've talked with them and you would swear they would be Dems, but then the big "L" word comes out. Stossel is grooming them as we speak. They believe they are intellectuals and superior to others. They have almost no practical experience with their theory. In 5 years, if we are still here, dope will be put back in jail or America will be 3rd world. Baby killing has brought elderly murder and the disabled. Well, now we have ObamaCare deciding who get saved and who dies. Choosing to kill people is not libertarian, even though they want to protect the woman from government control. Natural Law says people are people. The baby is "people", just as the elderly Alzheimer patient is. It comes from a moral code as old as the planet and they are't happy with it. Just as the Bible says a man that won't work to support his family is worse than an infidel, laws on murder and sodomy come from God, along with the rights God gives all of us. Without God, we are all at the mercy of men that change rights with the wind change.

    The thing that takes discernment is Obama's social idea's are exactly libertarian, but his economics are straight out of Marx. Ergo, people say he's a socialist/Marxist. All the economic libertarianism in the world, can't save a country that murders people in the name of freedom, or economics. If we are forced to keep ObamaCare, you will soon see it going broke and to conserve money, we will start withholding treatments and drugs to certain people that don't "deserve" the largess from the "real" needy people. Social libertarianism is the same thinking of economic liberalism. Economic theory from Milton Freedman and social theory from the Bible is what works. Social libertarianism will break down and require laws to regulate it,'s inevitable. All the trans- bathrooms for children at school, Heather has 2 mommies, now they want multiple wives, children have 3 parents, and on and on, it's all from "What do you care as long as it doesn't affect you". Man's heart is continually evil, who can know it. Eventually, it will affect you.

    Some libertarians invoke the Founders, as if they believe the Founders were on their side. The foundation of the country was on individual freedom and freedom to worship God. Atheists weren't elected or revered much in those days. The laws were ALL based on Scripture. The founders wanted people left alone until they sinned against God and nature. None were libertarian to my knowledge.

    This is why I'm working for the Tea Party. I'm as disappointed as you are, but I'm not going to sit home. If the social conservatives sit home, what doe you get for Republicans?....Chris Christy? If you send the financial conservative packing, what's left but John MCCain. If you leave the border security people out, what's left but Marco Rubio. We have to build the Republican Party.

    The reason I wrote this in the first place was to say I've been here before. The party is splitting right now and we will get Hillary unless we come together. I was there when the "Silent Majority" was born. If someone says they are for Pat Robertson, the squeals and squawks would be horrendous, but do you want to but up with a Christian, or live with Hilary pulling the levers? The Second Amendment folks are as reliable as anyone on the planet. Do you want to "make a deal" with some NE liberal so we can all get along? The libertarians are so pure they can't stand a Christian saying he doesn't want to watch 2 men kissing on TV. Libertarians have been searching for Mr Perfect for 50 years and are still waiting. In the mean time half of them vote Dem so they can burn flags, kill babies, and smoke dope( as long as it doesn't affect someone else, of course).

    No I'm not happy with the Republican Party. That's why I'm a conservative, not a Republican. We must work from the inside to build the party and not just toss good voters under a bus. I do agree with Sarah Palin, however. If the party doesn't come together soon, The Tea Party should be hatched. We handed the House to Republicans, and gains in the Senate, and then got NO committee chairs as the Tea Party. That was bad enough, but now we have Rove and others that treat the Tea Party like Democrats. I'm not optimistic. How many establishment Repubs would vote Tea Party to save the country? Makes me shiver. Libertarians must choose either economics or social issues. If you speak to the average college libertarian, they are voting for legal dope over almost all other issues. They pay no taxes and many have no job. They vote for gay marriage, dope and abortion over any economic reason. Sometimes the vote Dem just because us old farts vote Rep. It would e interesting to have an accurate poll on Rand Paul on FR. I bet he wouldn't get 15%, but they will hang there to the bitter end.

    It's not whether I approve of people's actions, but whether God approves of them. If the Bible states sodomy is an abomination, then why would I argue with Him to say he has the right? Lev 18:22 states we cannot even agree to allow sodomy in our land or the land will "vomit" us out. People are making up their own rights that are specifically denied from God. Children were murdered to please Molech. What was God's opinion of Molech? If drunkards will not see the Kingdom of Heaven, what will a Meth head get?

    I watched the strangest thing a few days ago. Pelosi quoted the Bible about Jesus to make a point of why we should open our borders. This is the same lady from a place where men wear dresses and have anal sex in parades. She is responsible for million of dead babies and she wants to use the Bible for her reasoning. Just because a libertarian thinks he has the right to do something doesn't mean it lines up with Natural Law.

    PS. It was really persons like you that I wrote the screed. If you go to a Libertarian function, you will see the side I wrote about. A good example is on Fox on the weekends. Jonathan Hoenig is what I'm writing about. He's a hedge fund manager that wants dope, open borders, and bring the troops home. He's an atheist except when Ann Rand is mentioned and the worship begins. You will be consistently disappointed if you stay with libertarians. John Stossel will openly state he is an atheist and is befuddled how anyone has any morals that don't jive with libertarianism.

    It's the pro-life, pro-border, pro-nat security, pro-traditional value, libertarians that are confused. They will be overruled 100% of the time.

    One of the other posters already brought up that they were anarchists with property. That just about covers it.

    ...."but his posts are not “anti-Catholic.”......

    Thank you! The problem with these threads is they just foment disagreement and change no minds. I don't believe in much of the Catholic dogma, so ergo, I'm not a Catholic. I would love to have a brisk in depth discussion on these beliefs and verses, but I believe Jesus is who He said He was and can do what He says He can do just as most Catholics I've ever spoken to. For us to argue with no chance to change hearts, for me is a waste. The problems come when Catholics take offence to what someone says and friction starts. This guy should have the freedom to say what he believes no matter what it is and Catholics can kick dirt and spit all they want. Bit that's not the way it is today. The fantastic part is our founders knew this 250 years ago.

    There is none good, no not one. If Mary was sinless, why not nail her to the cross and save God’s Son? There is NO scripture to say she was sinless. She was a person just as many were in scripture that found favor with God. Noah found such favor and righteousness was imputed to him, but later he got drunk and naked. David was a man after God’s own heart, but I’m sure we can agree he wasn’t perfect. The Bible is specific that we shouldn’t seek any other advocate than Jesus.
    Mary was a sinner and needed her Son to die to save her.

Course you guys don’t know what all I’ve tried so I figure there will be some basic stuff thrown out there. I would think if I could get 3 machines going in about 1 min or less, I should be able to copy the same setup on the 4th machine. I’m figuring the “simple” fix will be something the help screens don’t cover, usually software from something else. I’ve watched bunches of Youtubes and they pretty much cover the basics. The Microsoft help boards do pretty much the same. If you Google it, you see many many others have the same problem, but alas, no answer as of yet.

    This seems to be a moot point because as far as I know, there has never been a church lose it's tax status over politics,....never! If I'm not mistaken, David Barton has a website that asks pastors to preach on politics on purpose, and then send the sermon to some official and goad them into investigating them. The organization will provide any legal defense they might incur, but it hasn't been used yet.

    I myself have given a message on Lev 18: 22 to make the point that if we approve sodomy in America, the LAND will be defiled and vomit us out, and God told the Jews if they allowed it, they would lose the land God gave them. Romans 1:32 tells us that we are guilty of sin if we approve of the sin even though we didn't commit the sin. I thought it might make the pastor nervous, but apparently he had no problem with it. Our whole revolution was preached from the early American church and many pastors fought in the war. To make some subjects off limits is to limit God and I don't think you can do that. I would welcome an investigation because it would inevitably be stopped by the courts.

    It would also be a nightmare for Islam. Can you imagine a Christian church getting sanctioned for preaching against abortion and sodomy, and a Mosque getting away with preaching the assault on women, or the stoning of sinners? How about the overthrow of the government? Installing Sharia Law? Is Islam more "tolerant" of sodomy?

    If it's in the book, it's in the book and I will preach on it.

  • Newt Gingrich: ‘Turn the Pentagon Into a Triangle’

    Just a reminder that Gingrich actually CUT the budget deficit and debt while in office. This is what’s wrong with America today, everybody bitches but won’t vote for the ones to fix it. As it is, I will vote for Cruz, but if Newt runs again, he will get a strong look from me. Almost anyone will tell you he always the smartest guy in the room, but for some reason we vote for a guy we want to have a beer with. Well, I’m trying to get the country fixed, not drink with politicians.

  • Cruz: Rich Do Fine with Big Govt, GOP Must Help the Working Poor

    Don't get all worked up over one statement in the news. Cruz is my Senator and if you follow him at all, you will see he has ALL the right answers.( at least so far) He believes lower taxes for all is more stimulative than counterfeiting in the Fed. He also believes in de-regulation as much as is practical. You have already seen that he doesn't back down, no matter where the pressure comes from. There are many youtube vids of him speaking on policy that won't take him out of context with creative editing, or you just might go to a rally in person to really get a "thrill up your leg".

    As it is right now, Cruz is my guy. He could get all screwed up about immigration or some other topic, but for right now, after all I've heard and read, he's the real deal. I can't say that about some of the others. Rubio's has screwed the pooch on immigration and Christy never had a chance anyway. I don't think a northern liberal will win in the south EVER. I think Romney would have been OK, but from Mass, Mormon, Michigan,........too much baggage for Texas and Tennessee.

    If you pay close attention, the candidates that scare libs the most are the ones they destroy,....ergo Sarah Palin. Since Cruz made the scene, he has a big target on his back. As a conservative wanting to repopulate the Republican Party with Constitutional Conservatives, Cruz fills in all the blanks. I have several candidates that have pleasing points, but Cruz is the perfect one so far. Almost anyone the establishment backs is a non starter for me.

  • How Americans Feel About Religious Groups (Pew Research Poll)

    I've never understood why Jews do this. Evangelicals will plainly tell you they support Israel and Atheists will be the ones spitting on Jews for defending themselves against Hamas. They CONSISTENTLY vote for Dems that HATE JEWS. The Dems are the ones on TV saying we need to cut ties with Israel. Any evangelical will tell you God blesses those that bless Israel and we have been adopted into the family of God. If you are a Christian and hate Jews, you hate God's family and your own brothers.

    I've heard of self hating Jews all my life, but I keep praying for them. They are almost all against the Second Amendment, for abortion, and gay marriage. For me, being Jewish is more of a racial term than a religious one. Only Orthodox Jews remotely follow God's teaching. I can't imagine a Jew rejecting a concealed carry permit. A 10 year old Hamas child has an AK 47.
