    I believe innocent until proven guilty is a biblical principle. And a single person claiming something happened is not proof. It takes 2 or 3 witnesses to corroborate any single event. In Moore’s case even though you’ve got multiple paid witnesses, I don’t believe any claimed incident has more than one “witness”. Thus they are all likely just made up lies. If you have multiple witnesses to the same event, they can be cross examined separately to see if their stories hold together. Nobody should be punished based solely on an unproven accusation.

    Deuteronomy 19
    15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

    16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

    17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the Lord, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

    18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

    19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

    20 And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

    All I want is the repeal part anyhow. I’d prefer going “forward” to getting what you pay for. Capitalized Medicine. Let market forces increase competition, drive down prices, and spur innovative new cures.

  • Feds say they disrupted suicide bomb plot against Wichita airport

    I actually worked on contract around this guy at the Hawker Beechcraft's Wichita Service Center for a month this fall. I used to get things out of the very cabinets shown behind him in the picture. He was an Avionics lead guy on second shift. He would come in about 45 minutes before I would leave each day. I didn't talk with him very much directly, but I often overheard him interacting with others. The company was recently bankrupted by its moronic management, and most of the competent people had been forced to flee the place earlier. Morale was very bad amongst the remaining employees and management was a perfect "how not to do things" example. Terry, however, was different. He seemed to be one of the few people who actually was mentally well prepared to do his job, he actually knew what was going on and why and was technically competent. The other guys on his shift seemed to turn to him for guidance, while most of the supervisory folks were "lost" as to what should be going on. Oddly he seemed to be the only guy in the whole place who seemed to be happy to come into work each day, and seemed to act as though he had a "purpose" in coming to work besides just getting a paycheck. If the purported time-line is correct, he was already happily planning to blow the place to hell when I was seeing him there. I guess the lesson I take away from that is: Anybody at Hawker Beechcraft who is happy to be there is likely just a psychopath excited by the prospect of how they'll soon extract deadly retribution on the world. If I had stayed there longer than a month, I'm sure I would have gotten to know him better. I've got a call in to a friend who still works there to try to find out more.

    A great video and a good historical reminder. I hope this gets a lot of exposure. He presents his reasons for decision quite well. It made me proud to be a republican, and I don’t often feel proud of the party.

    I was a FR user with a different screen name once. I made a sarcastic comment about the claim that there was a lot of diversity at an all Black college. Faster than greased lightning I was no longer a FR member. I guess you can say Honkey, Cracker, Whitey, Paleface, Gringo, Yankee, or any other kind of slur imaginable about a white guy, but if even in jest you mention a name given some Blacks you're out of here. That is how it was. Political correctness was enforced.

    I find it telling that there is no anti-White name anybody has ever said that I find offensive. If somebody of another race makes a points of me being White, I feel a little swell of pride and think "you're darn right I'm White, and proud as can be".
    I note that whatever American members of the negroid race have chosen to call themselves eventually comes to be considered a slur. For example they were once Colored then Negros then Afro-American then "Brothers" then...
    Might these names gain a negative connotation in the minds of their bearers due to negative behaviors eventually coming again to be associated with the group bearing the new name?

    I spent six years of my childhood living in South Korea well over three decades ago now. I was a glaring minority in a very physically and genetically homogenous mass of People. They had a racist old world culture and did not make any attempt at what we now call political correctness. Some of them would literally cross the street to check out the "American". The adults would just stop me and start feeling my blond hair, or ask me if the whole world looked blue out of my eyes. They might mention that they had only seen Americans on black and white TV, and in black and white newspaper photos, but now they were able to see one in color. Then they might say that they had heard that Americans had bigger feet and bigger noses and now they could see that it was true. Then they would often try to get me to go with them so they could show me to their friends or family usually offering food as a bribe. They almost all wanted to try out the English that they learned in school, and see if it really worked. They might just blurt out some random phrase and then look at me to see if my face lit up in comprehension. In their culture children were on the lowest rung of a society that respected their elders, so it was expected that I wouldn't mind being waylayed to satisfy the curiosity of an adult, or being drug around as a novelty, "Hey! look what I just found. Its an American boy!" Anyway, in spite of being a minority in a country of people that thought their own race to be the best and were proud to tell you that. And in spite of being told American jokes or how odd my American culture and customs were to them. I was never bothered by any of it in the least. It never entered into my mind to resent them for thinking they were a superior race, or that they would never treat me like other Koreans, or that I stuck out, or that they shared American jokes with me, or any of a million things that might set off an African American who has been taught to try to perceive hostility hiding in every action of a White person.

    And worse than slavery, the Catholics martyred my Anabaptist Ancestors in horrible public spectacles and hounded the remainder from country to country all around Europe reducing them to poverty time and again while using the full weight of their worldly power to oppress my pious ancestors, and yet I voted for Catholic Paul Ryan without the least reservation. I just don't see how one race gets permission to walk around with a chip on their shoulders for the rest of eternity for something that a few people did to their ancestors in generations past? Half of my White ancestors were not even in America at that time, and the half that were fought for Abe Lincoln to free them. If anything My ancestry should merit me a "thank you" from any African American who wants to be mad about past injustice. And If it is the present time that is bothering them, why don't they ask Our Black president to do something about what is bunching up their panties? Some Blacks have moved past grievance, but too many still own it with as strong a conviction as their religion.

    Arg! Just had to get that off my Back.
    I'm a fan of Dr. King's civil rights movement. Too bad the Clown Reverends who took it over made a U-turn and no longer want equality but instead want racial preferences again. Ungodly Fools!

    In an odd coincidence I kind of felt the Glory was departing about the same time Michelle Obama was first proud of America.

    Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if Jimmy Carter had been reelected?

    Welcome to Jimmy Carter's second term!

    FWIW the Name Ichabod means "the glory has departed" I've felt that way about America for a while now. We needed better leadership and we collectively voted for more of the same unGodly foolishness.

    I agree. Trump is not as big of an idiot as this makes him appear. Trump is a great promoter, and this is not even that. It looks like a last minute "plan B". My guess is that trump had some mud to sling and Mitt Romney called him off. Mitt most likely felt that slinging nasty mud this late in the game would look desperate and un-presidential, and most likely backfire. If the Romney campaign (via Trump) appears to be out to personally embarrass our first Black president then Romney becomes evil and racist(again) and the beaten down Obama gains sympathy votes and can rally Black solidarity against his attackers.

    I believe Mitt is "leader" enough to call off Trump's attack while Obama is currently melting over Libya and needs a distraction like a pissing contest with an easy to lampoon ("the Donald")Trump.

    Your post reaks of someone from the utterly corrupt ethanol lobby.
    Bwa Haa Ha Ha! I get paid the big bucks to post my opinions while fools like you post for nothing! /S.

    There is no "depletion" in the foreseeable future.
    Your post reaks of someone from the utterly corrupt petroleum lobby.

    Nuclear is the potential to provide vast amounts of energy for all the worlds needs.
    So why are you pushing petrol VS ethanol when you really know the answer to this all is nukleeyer? Crazy!

    BTW, I know two auto repair shop owners. They state without a doubt that ethanol is...
    And you believed them! Now that there is funny.
    I run a lot of ethanol in my vehicles and I don't know any repair shop owners.
    If my vehicles do ever need work, I do it myself.
