  • Lockheed Martin's Fusion Reactor: The Next Big Thing? Or No Big Deal?

    I'm just surprised the Skunk Works is working on this. I would rather be paying for a drone or satellite with a laser that loiters over a country that zaps thousands at a time as they march people out to ditches to put bullets in their heads. If we had that, we could just release it over Syria and Iraq and pick out black flags to zot. 24/7 scanning streets and buildings looking for certain people. Facial recognition, infrared, super microphones for voices, speech recognition, literally Big Brother in the sky.

    The only problem is with Obama, he would turn it on the Tea Party and invite ISIS in the WH for Ramadan.

    No, the temple will be physical so the Beast can sit in it. The 7 year trib starts when Israel signs a peace treaty. The Jews will immediately start to build. I’m told they already have the implements ready to go. The Beast will declare He is God from there to begin the final 3 1/2 years.

    What he is doing is getting rid of real soldiers that won't fire on American citizens and replacing them with those that will. He has already replaced much of the officer corps with his own cronies. This is basically what Maliki did in Iraq. All the well trained officers we trained in Iraq were replaced with somebody's brother in law that knew Maliki and would follow his orders. Then ISIS showed up and the ran because they weren't trained.

    If you are going to have a coup, you need your own people,.....meaning Dem loonies. He still has 2 years to get it done. If he decides to declare martial law and the military backs him, it's time to dig up the back yard and clean the ammo. If he still has some real officers left, they will belay the order.

    chuckles to plangent
    You are correct, but it controls more than just unions. Let's say you make $9 an hour now. You aren't on minimum wage, but you will be raised to $10 immediately, the new minimum wage. You go to your boss and say, hey, I've been here 2 years and the new guy makes the same as me. Then the $11 dollar guy says what about me?

    About 500,000 would lose their job immediately, and their would be disruption all up and down the line. Instead of just costing the employer another $3 an hour for a couple of workers, everyone will be clamoring for a raise. Many will have to be let go, and many more will be disappointed because Mr. Boss CAN"T PAY. Even if they drag the raises out over 3 years, the boss has to figure out how to raise productivity, cut costs, and possibly raise prices. We end up paying for this somewhere along the way. So if you get a raise from $17 an hour to $20 an hour over a couple of years, Bread goes from $1.35 a loaf to $2 a loaf for cheap bread and phone, electricity, and cable all eats up more than the raise you got.

  • REJECTED: Kroger Managers Are Refusing To Accept Bullying Tactics of Moms Demand Action

    chuckles to Buckeye McFrog

    What they were hoping for is the headline, “Kroger disses open carry”. It didn’t matter no one was doing it. IMO, open carry does make people nervous. They don’t know if you are planning a jihad or your wife just left you, or you just got fired. Concealed carry does none of this. If you are toting a rifle around a store on your shoulder with a 30 rd mag, and you so much as twitch, someone with a concealed carry might react. I’m 63 and have lived in Texas all my life. NO ONE, ever carried anything openly except to the gun store to get it worked on in all those years. To carry an AK into Kroger just makes no sense unless you have a bad motive. I know they all say they want to make a point, but the point IS hurting the rest of us. Even charter members of the NRA would be nervous seeing a 22 year old Iranian walking through Kroger with an AR. Remember, EVERYONE uses the same rules. How about Mike Brown bringing a .308 into 7-11 in Ferguson? What would you think? Not everyone is a trained gun owner fighting for gun rights. If I saw a young male, any flavor, enter an establishment with open carry I and my family were in, I would immediately unsnap and start moving for the door. That’s just a natural reaction. I don’t know you and you don’t know me, and from what I see today, most have no idea about gun safety. My dad taught me at 8 yrs old with threats of beatings and never touching a gun again if I didn’t follow the gun rules. Today, you take an 8 hour course while nodding off to sleep and you get a gubmint license.

    Just stop and think a minute about this one statement,.....”banning books authored by Christians”. This isn’t Christian themed books but the author was a believer. First of all, how would you know? If it’s a famous Christian pastor, well everyone would recognize that, but Joe Blow may be the most devout Christian ever, certainly more than Joel Osteen. How would you know by reading the title and author? If Joe Blow writes a novel about a cancer patient coming to know Christ and being cured while in treatment, why is that not the same as an atheist writing about their cure from cancer from mere luck? Then, you just get to the point of anything by Billy Graham pulled and person saved at a Billy Graham meeting left on the shelf just because he isn’t Billy Graham. What a mess. Our Founders were so much wiser than the crew we have today it’s frightening.

    Nobody teaches the part of WWII about America rounding up Japanese into internment camps and we never had an attack on US soil. I mean, It's embarrassing for me as a Constitutional American, but hey, it worked. As we filtered the red white and blue Japanese out, we allowed them to fight in the European theater.

    While at war with ISIS, do we have the time to do background checks on 3 million Muslims? Shut down the Mosques, arrest the Imam's and confine the true believers. The ones that won't convert, send them to Syria and drop them on Bagdaddy with a Owens sausage sewed in his mouth.

    Some areas of America are already taken over by Muslims. 3 million doesn't sound like that many in 315 million, but they concentrate in certain areas and the own the police force and city councils. Just go to You Tube and look at Dearborn Mich. Do it before you eat or you will lose it.

    I literally wept when you reminded me of this. When someone says men wrote the Bible and God is a myth, my heart just breaks for their ignorance. They cast their vote for their future without even an hour of study. A lifetime is not enough time to see the hand of God moving in and out of our lives and history molding the plan He devised from the foundation of the world. If some say there are contradictions, I first look to see where I did not understand because I know there are no contradictions and I must have missed something my finite mind can't comprehend. No one person can contain all the knowledge from God's Word, but together we can sharpen our iron on the wisdom of another.

    God Bless you for reminding me of this beautiful detail that shows the character of God and His desire to teach us about Him.

    PS. My whole world changed when I started to learn the connection of the Jews and Christianity. We we finally get it that Jesus was a Jew, taught in a synagogue, wrote the whole Bible, and fulfilled every jot and tittle as a Jew, things start to take on a whole new aspect that Christians are NEVER taught. We all seem to take for granted that Jesus was killed on Passover as the Lamb of God, but make no connection to the Death angel in Egypt. No one seems to understand the unleavened bread until you study the Jews. I went to a church( whose denomination will remain nameless) who offered me a french loaf for communion. No one seems to connect the overturning of the money changer tables in the Temple with Jesus getting the leaven out of His Fathers house. Jesus says He was the First Fruits of the dead and it goes right over most Christians heads. Pentecost was celebrated 1500 years before the Holy Spirit was poured out and most don't know the Law was given on Mt Sinai on that day and 3000 were killed on that day for the golden calf and when the Holy Spirit was poured out, 3000 were saved. Might that not teach the difference between the Law and Grace?

    If you want to understand prophesy, you must study the Feasts of the Lord. EVERYTHING has a physical meaning and a spiritual meaning. I suggest to everyone who will listen to get familiar with the Jewish wedding customs to understand what is coming.

    ...."Where does Revelation reference a rejection of Israel? "...

    That was my point. Many Christians don't support Israel thinking they are somehow substituted for God's original people. The Covenants were made with Israel from the beginning. God doesn't change and He doesn't take back what He has decreed. The general theme of the article wants to put some special dispensation on the Coptic's, but That is just selective reading. The same can be said for Jehovah Witnesses that think they are the 144,000, and many others out there finding reasons we are all wrong and they are right. Jesus gave a very simple test for His Salvation and the rest is just disputes in the Body. All nations and toungues will give the the final "Bride" taken by Christ.

    Now, as far as Romans 9-6-8, I think we agree that the adopted people are not Jews, but the Gentiles. But what of the Jews in Israel,...move to Romans 11. The whole chapter explains, but verses 7-10 explains God's plan for Israel.The Jews were blinded b God so the Gentiles could be added. It is in God's complete control what will happen to the Jews. They will be left behind, they will evangelize in the Last Days as the 144,000 because they have seen the One their pierced and the NATION will repent.

    As an individual, we all must repent and believe Jesus is who He says He is, and can do what He says He can do. That doesn't save or condemn your nation, however. There are Jews in Heaven as we saw in the Mount of Transfiguration. What kind of God do we serve if Moses, Abraham, Joesph, Elijah, and others never had a chance? They knew an Savior was to come, and today we have seen the Savior that was sent. The Jew looking for Abraham's Seed is saved just as we are saved. We are God's children and heirs to Abraham's inheritance because we were fortunate enough to be adopted. God blind's some and gives sight to others,....all for His glory. We were called to God by His Spirit and pulled from the muck and cleaned by His blood. It had NOTHING to to with any special insight we might think we had. There are many with closed eyes and ears and we cannot cure their sight and unplug their ears. You can see some here speaking of what car Jesus will return in. They may even go to church every Sunday, but don't hear a word said. They don't understand the humor they find in mocking God, He finds repulsive. The Jews have taken the Word of God very seriously for millennia. That doesn't open their eyes and ears however, until the Spirit calls them, just as He did us. I won't be the one questioning God's judgement when Israel is saved and I was saved decades ago.

    God comes, in Revelation to save the NATION of Israel in WWIII when they cry out to Him for salvation, just as they have done from Genesis. The individual Jews will see the wounds on the one they pierced and repent, just as Zechariah says.

    I think we agree with more than disagree. This is just my opinion, of course, but the Bride will rule and reign with Christ for the thousand years over nations that are NOT the Bride. If Jesus just ruled Israel, there isn't enough room for the 5 billion left after the 2.5 billion are killed. They must still be in their home nation. However, if Egypt is not a supporter of Israel, it may not rain to grow crops or plagues may run rampant through the land, while the lion and lamb lay down together elsewhere. Revelation speaks of us eating food we did not grow and living in houses we did not build. I'm not saying God will have slaves, but just sayin. These are thing very sparsely written about and I haven't studied in depth. My main concern is, and has been the Rapture. I'm teaching a home Bible study right now on the Feasts of Israel and I think God has made it fairly plain you can't understand prophesy without studying the OT and the practices Israel. In Leviticus 23:1, God made it plain that the Feast days are for HIM, not just the Jews. To call it "Jewish" Feast days is almost anti-Semitic. These "Holy Convocations" are actually dress rehearsals for what is to come. Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Pentecost have all been fulfilled in prophesy. Trumpets, Yom Kippur, and Tabernacles are all that is left and they will all be fulfilled just as the Spring Feasts were fulfilled on the exact day and hour they were supposed to be fulfilled.

    For your last sentence....." Where does Revelation reference a rejection of Israel?"....I can't understand where you think I said Israel will be rejected. Maybe you have me mixed up with some other poster. I specifically cited the verses in Zechariah that says they will be saved. The Jews will not be Raptured, but will be saved. After the Rapture, those left will be subject to the Mark and execution, but you can receive Salvation, but it will most likely be through your death for Christ. The "church" age will be over and Salvation will be made with your mouth and the baptism will be literal death for Christ. You won't be able to take the mark to save your life without denouncing Christ. If you save your life you will lose it and if you lose your life you will save it.

    Jesus will rule and reign from Israel and we are His people. The Temple mount land was bought by King David to build the Temple. It was a threshing floor for a farmer, which I always thought was neat. It is believed that the very land was where Abraham raised the knife over Issac and Solomon build His Temple. The word "Holy" doesn't mean good, or religious, or anything like what we use the word for. It means set aside, and in our case set aside for God. The Holy Land is God's land and is for his holy people.

    Where does it say "Israel is the "church"?

    Israel is His people. God has an irrevocable covenant with them. They are left behind to suffer the Beast in the Temple, but they will see Jesus and repent. Zech 13:6 tells of the Jews repentance as a nation in the Last Days. Zech 12:10 tell us the Jews are specifically given Grace. The whole purpose of His return is to save Israel from the armies from the north. The 144,000 are clearly Jews from the tribes as evangelists in the last days. The Rapture is the church going to Him, not the return of Christ to rule and reign on Earth.

    To believe God has forgotten His people is the error. We are the ones that have been "adopted" into God's people. We are His people and He is our God, just as promised in Gen 12:1-3. The Jews are a special people to God, always have been, always will be. Just read all of Zechariah and you will see that it was God's plan from the beginning to blind the Jews so we could be saved and He would reveal Himself in the Last Days to save them. It's clear that God is speaking of the nation of Israel and not just Christians as His church. Some have said that since Jesus came "Israel" means the church. Israel means Israel. When the separation of Goats and Sheep comes, He is speaking of judging the nations about how they treated Israel, not about believing and non believing people. This is why it is absolutely imperative we support Israel in America.

    That is what you should have taken away when Ted Cruz was booed last week when he mentioned Israel. He absolutely did the right thing by leaving. We are in GREAT DANGER by even having Obama as president right now as I believe the "Last Days" are VERY close and it is CLEAR that he doesn't respect Israel. Revelations tells us Jesus will rule with an "iron rod" those NATIONS that rejected Israel. We have personal salvation, but there will also be judgement on the nations. It has always been a contentious subject, but IMO, The AntiChrist will be revealed in the Temple 3 1/2 years after peace agreement is signed between the Jews and Pali's. We will be saying "Peace and safety" for 1260 days and he will say, in the Temple, "I am God" you must worship me. I believe the Rapture will happen then. The "foolish virgins" will be left behind to suffer great persecution, but they can be saved if they reject the Mark, or die from beheading. That is the sound crying from under the alter for vengeance. When Israel is surrounded and there is no more hope of escape, Jesus, and His raptured church will return to save Israel and reign from Jerusalem for 100 years.

    There are so many parables an Biblical warnings for Christians to Not be a foolish virgin or a disobedient servant and miss the train outta here, there is no excuse. The whole book of Song of Solomon is about Jesus knocking on the door of a sleeping church trying to get them to come OUT and receive blessing, but almost no one preaches on it for fear of saying something "vulgar". Jesus is going to get married to a Bride, not come to make friends. Would you marry an acquaintance? Everyone should think back how it was when they were about to marry. You married the person who called you every 10 minutes and wrote silly notes to you that you dare not share with even your family. The "passion" had to be there or you wouldn't have risked marriage. That is why they call it "The Passion of Christ" when speaking of His crucifixion.

    To find out if you will be in the Rapture or be left behind to suffer, just look at your passion and decide if you would marry you, in the last day. You cannot be double minded or serve two masters. The Jews that have worshiped the God of Abraham from the beginning will be saved by His Grace. To some Jews, it is a racial thing and they are atheists. Israel will be saved. I trust His judgement.

    chuckles to dforest
    Cruz because Paul is a libertarian. Paul won't fight when they hang his children from main street lamp posts. Something about "foreign entanglements".

    I have already written a screed on Libertarianism on FR. They are fine for Secretary of Treasury, but about everything else they may as well be Obama. They are conservatives with no God. They take pride in their pious purity in the Constitution to the point they will take a direct attack and think they can send a diplomat to fix it. Try explaining an insane ISIS fighter sawing heads off and they want a treaty to get them to stop. They are oblivious to their books telling them they must do it to get to Heaven.

    I'm sure they will take the mark of the beast thinking they can always fix it later. Paul; won't get anymore than Ron did, but it will take away from whoever conservatives want.

    Rubio "coulda been a contender", but fell to the "Hispanic hyphen American" group and screwed the pooch. I'm looking for the Hispanics that understand they are Americans and whatever helps America helps them. Cruz fits that bill and he's smart, real smart. I like Newt for 20 years but everyone keeps worrying about his zipper or something instead of voting for the best candidate. He passed the Contract for America, did what he said he would do, and balanced the budget, but people said he did something wrong in his marriage. All was proven false, but after he lost. So all the same problems we want to solve 20 years ago are still there. Conservatives actually did the same thing to Reagan until he did it, solved the problems and then left office. They couldn't keep griping how he was just a Hollywood actor that was dumb, so they just moved on. Getting the economy fixed and tearing down the Berlin wall was pretty significant, but the establishment still wants the Dole's and McCain's of the party for whatever reason. Palin could solve all these problems we face today, but what are the odds? They still smell every fart to try to coat her will scum just like the party fight this week was supposed to prove some flaw her family has. Sticking cigars in interns vagina's is OK of course and don't forget being elected in the New Party in Chicago is fine if you are Hopey and changey along with eating dogs on Muslim holiday's. I'll back Cruz till the bitter end. You know all the forces of Satan are arrayed against him, including the establishment, but that's a medal of honor to me. I want unwavering conservative principles no matter what the talking heads think. I can almost hear it now, from 8am till 10 pm on even FoxNews, with Btrit and Oreilly giggling that Cruz even dares to try to get the nomination. That doesn't even cover the conniptions we will witness on MSNBC and CNN. Till Cruz says or does something to buckle to pressure, I'm In!! The Booing he received just this week shows his character. He knows Israel is blessed by God and we need to be with God. If you aren't with Israel you are NOT a Christian. They haven't figured out Jesus is Jewish and we are adopted in to God's family.If you don't know this soon after you are baptized, you just haven't read the book. The whole purpose of Revelation is to show Jesus coming back to save Israel. The whole world will line up against Israel and it's important which side you pick. Cruz "done good." Christy is finished before he starts and the media wants him so bad they can taste it. A few of the governors are fine but they aren't Cruz. Perry wouldn't be terrible, but he's my governor and I could find 10 things in about a minute to mark against him. The NAFTA highway is right up there near the beginning. Why compromise when we have Cruz?

    All you have to do is watch who the gay parents adopt. Lesbians adopt girls and gay men adopt boys. Why? If lesbians adopted a baby boy, they would lose interest and parenting would be a burden. God used the word "abomination" for a reason. There is no upside to this. Even taking a child out of an orphanage is not a plus in this situation.

    If we last long enough, we will be getting books from adopted children telling of the horrors we put them through so we could be politically correct. Frankly, I think Jesus is coming back very soon.

    Here is my answer.........

    The real God, with a capital "G", allows us to get the leaders we ask for. God uses even pagans to discipline His children. It is our disconnect from God that causes our own downfall. If you look back at the impossible blessings America has experienced since it's birth, look at us now, barely even acknowledging his protection on our country.

    One could say that 9-11-2001 could never happen to a blessed country with God's hedge protecting it. We blindly stumble through each day actually believing we can murder 55 million babies and allow sodomites to marry with no consequence. Exactly 7 years later, Sept 2008, we have the largest economic collapses in world history, yet we can't possibly make a connection. exactly 7 years later, Sept 2015, will we be irreversibly punished if we haven't repented as a country? I like to think of myself as a reasonable person, but how does any fair thinking person believe Obama was the "Best man for the job",......TWICE! If you can't force yourself to believe that we are under judgement, how can you explain Obama? In a 20 person field, he somehow gets a landslide twice. People,... that's God!

    If we don't repent, as a nation, and turn to Him for protection, we will have destroyed ourselves. A "normal" person can't explain how we ever pay back $17 trillion or cover the bonds we just bought with counterfeit money. A country under God can, by His hand. A country can't explain how to defeat 1.5 billion Muslims that want your children's head on a stick. A country under God can, by His hand. Is it harder to stop murdering babies than to save your land? How tough is it to admit sodomy is an abomination rather than be utterly crushed by our enemies? Leviticus 18:22 tells us that God will not stand for a country of His to allow sodomy in the land. This is more than a personal decision to be homosexual, but the land allows it and the people will be vomited out of the defiled land.

    This is just the tip of the destruction iceberg. How about forbidding God in your schools? Why would you send your child anywhere God was not welcome? Ergo, the schools have failed. Now we have a whole generation that is ignorant of the reality of God. How many in America today even knows what John 3:16 says? How many marriages can work if we teach our children that fornication is just part of growing up? We are taught today that your money is my money and we have the right to steal it. There are 50 more, but I'm sure you get the pattern by now.

    God has a solution for all this. He has given us 6000 years to learn to govern ourselves. He then will come here to show us how it's done.

    If we were able to govern ourselves, God would be our King and we would seek His wisdom. Since our hearts are continually evil, destruction always comes. What does it mean when Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah"? God is patient, but time is out. Repent or perish, that is the choice. How stiff is our collective necks?

    Rand Paul is just another Libertarian fraud that will split the conservative vote to get an establishment bum elected. If libertarians would switch parties, maybe we could end up with a conservative running against a small government,Constitutional, Democrat, we used to call a "Blue Dog". They came to the Republicans because they can't win on their own and have watered down the Christian conservative wing of the Republicans to introduce some Frankenstein mix of dope smoking, gay marrige, isolationists that want a balanced budget. Balancing the budget is way up the list for all conservatives, but why give up morals in the process? God can balance the budget if we follow Him. God will give us victory in battle,...if we follow Him. God will replace His hedge of protection on the country if we forbid sodomy again. Leviticus 18:22 make it plain, the land is defiled and will vomit out it's inhabitants with sodomites allowed to practice their abominations in the land.

    It's not about I'll leave you alone if you leave me alone. God is in charge whether you believe Him or not. We will have have a stupid look on our face when we have a mushroom cloud over America and never connect the dots to abortion and sodomy. A libertarian isn't qualified for anything other than maybe Treasury Secretary or the Budget committee.

    If I found out that BK paid 50% more for tomato's than needed, as a shareholder, heads should roll. It's the same for taxes. We don't pay them to help the gubmint but to fulfill an obligation to run the business in an efficient manner. If I'm a shareholder, they are cheating me out of profits owed ME to save money in MY company.

    There is possible legal problems if BK paid 50% more for tomato's if the tomato provider turned out to be my uncle. To pay more taxes voluntarily is not good business practice. I didn't hear a peep when GE paid NO taxes on billions in profits. Buffet works his taxes by making his living off of a top rate of 15% on dividends. When he was crying for more taxes on his money, all he had to do was write a check to the treasury for whatever guilt he felt. To insist everyone else pay more is just BS.

    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.

    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.

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,...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.
