    I don't believe in picketing.
    However, God is CLEAR on HOW to correct this problem.
    If we repent ... and OBEY God, things might turn around.
    If not ... well ... read Jeremiah 7.

    If not ... there'll be HELL TO PAY !

    Blame it on DEMOCRATS AND the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF !
    Gun Control ?
    HELL ! We need TO CONTROL OUR GOVERNMENT ! ! !
    This is what happens when the GOVERNMENT FORCES you to hire REPROBATES !
    We wouldn't have THIS PROBLEM ...IF ... WE OBEYED GOD ! ! !



    TO TOLERATE HOMOSEXUALS IS EVIL.
    This is what we get when we FAIL to OBEY God.
    For it is written:
      “ For whosoever shall commit ANY of these abominations,
        even the SOULS that commit them
          SHALL BE CUT OFF from among their people. ”
    Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
    These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
    I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

    Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
    Someone once asked
      "Why are they [homosexuals] all so angry?"
    The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE".
      rep·ro·bate \ˈre-prə-ˌbāt\ a. [L. reprobatus, reprobo, to disallow; re and probo, to prove.]

        1. Not enduring proof or trial; not of standard purity or fineness; disallowed; rejected.
          Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the Lord hath rejected them. Jer. 6.

        2. Abandoned in sin; lost to virtue or grace.
          They profess that they know God, but in works deny him, being abominable and disobedient, and to every good work reprobate. Titus 1.

        3. Abandoned to error, or in apostasy. 2Tim. 3.
    And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

    God has a cure for homosexuals.
      But will we OBEY our Heavenly Father?

    that God is just,

    WRONG !

    The Arab-Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama II, (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro), ( the one guilty of TREASON ! ) has NO legitimate Social Security Number.
    His father was NOT an immigrant to the United States.
    Barack Obama Sr. was a "Transient Alien" because he did NOT intend on residing in the United States permanently.
    Barack Obama Sr. was a dual citizen of Great Britain and Kenya, and NEVER a United States Citizen.His mother could NOT impart U.S. citizen to her son, Barack Obama II,
    because she did NOT meet the legal requirements to do so
    ,
    at the time her son was born IN the Coast Provincial General Hospital, MOMBASA, KENYA at 7:21 pm on August 4, 1961.
    Democrats knew this and tried to eliminate the "Natural Born Citizen" requirement at least 8 times BEFORE Obama won his election in 2008.

    Obama is NOT a United States Citizen, and is NOT a LEGAL IMMIGRANT.
    He has no VISA allowing him into this country.
    Barack Hussein Obama II IS ILLEGAL !
    He should be IMPEACHED IMMEDIATELY, tried for TREASON, SENTENCED to death,
    and then have his body deported back to Kenya.

    CORRECTION: Barack Obama, the first black Arab-American -Kenyan pResident of the United States.

      The state does not have any concern in the matter.

      The consciences of men are not the objects of human legislation.
      In contrast with this spiritual tyranny, how beautiful appears our constitution in disclaiming all jurisdiction over the souls of men,
        securing by a never-to-be- repealed section the voluntary, unchecked moral persuasion of every person by his own self-directed communication with the Father of spirits!”
          – William Livingston, Constitution Signer


      “Security under our constitution is given to the rights of conscience and private judgment.
      They are by nature subject to no control but that of Deity, a
      nd in that free situation they are now left.”
          – John Jay, first Supreme Court Chief Justice


      Original Intent of the First Amendment

      Fisher Ames provided the wording for the First Amendment in the House of Representatives.
      He did not say anything about “separation of church and state” in his debate, nor may it be inferred as his intent.
      In fact, Fisher Ames said something that would be ruled unconstitutional because of the court’s modern application of that very phrase, “separation of church and state.”
      He said,
        “Not only should the Bible be in our schools, it should be the primary textbook of our schools.” xliv


      Earlier, at the time of the Constitutional Convention, the founders discussed the individual rights of American citizens, which would later become the Bill of Rights.
      How many times did they mention the phrase “separation of church and state?”
        Zero.
      They did not talk about it once.

      The phrase “separation of church and state” was not even introduced into the American vernacular until a little over a decade after the First Amendment was adopted.
      The phrase is exactly that - a phrase.
      It is not a statute, it is not a law, and it is not an amendment to the Constitution.
      It is simply a phrase lifted from a letter written by one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson.

      Jefferson was writing to the Danbury Baptist Association on January 1, 1802, in response to a letter wherein
        they raised their concerns about religious liberty ever being infringed by the American government.
      Jefferson responded that this would not occur because the Constitution builds “a wall of separation between Church and State.” xlv
      So much has been erroneously inferred from that one statement.
      Simply stated, Jefferson was using the phrase to describe the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment, which says, “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The protection of our rights to live out our faith without government interference is what was being expressed both in the letter and in the First Amendment.


      What About Separation of Church & State

      The Supreme Court twisted the meaning of the First Amendment by isolating those eight words from this personal letter from Jefferson. xlvi
      They did not even consider the letter in its full context. xlvii
      Then, in 1962, the Court used the phrase to completely remove God from all governmental institutions. xlviii
      It is amazing how the court can ignore history and rewrite it to fulfill their particular agenda and purpose.

      We’ve Got the Wrong Guy

      Perhaps even worse than misapplying Jefferson’s words is the fact that Jefferson’s words were used in the first place
        as a means for discovering the intent of the First Amendment.
      Actually, Thomas Jefferson and his words “separation of church and state” are irrelevant when it comes to interpreting the intended meaning of the First Amendment
        because Jefferson did not give us the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.


      When a biographer wrote to Thomas Jefferson, to congratulate him for his influence on the Constitution, his response was,
        One passage of the paper you enclosed must be corrected.
        It is the following.
          ‘I will say it was yourself more than any other individual that planned and established the Constitution.’
        xlix


      Jefferson pointed out to the biographer that
        he “was in Europe when the Constitution was planned,
        and never saw it
        until after it had been established.”
        l


      Nor was Thomas Jefferson one of the Congressmen that passed the Bill of Rights, which contains the First Amendment.

      So, arguing what the framers’ intent was by using Thomas Jefferson as an expert witness on the First Amendment
      is the same as
        having a murder trial where the judge allows those who were not at the scene of the murder
          to come forth and tell us what happened.
      It is intellectually dishonest
      and a piece of cleverly crafted creative history at best, to say that Thomas Jefferson’s words provide the intent for the First Amendment.
      To understand the original intent of the First Amendment, you must scrutinize the thoughts of those who took part in the debate,
        the ones who actually gave us the First Amendment.
      That debate emphasized the need to avoid another Church of England being established in America.

      In other words, they were trying to prevent a national denomination from being forced upon the citizens.
      None of their comments reflected intent to separate religious principles from government or from the public square.
      Just the opposite:
        they wanted to foster free expression, not political oppression.

      For those who still want to rely on Jefferson as their expert regarding the First Amendment, it should not go unnoticed that
      exactly two days after writing his letter to the Danbury Baptists, he attended the weekly church service being held AT the U.S. Capitol.
      These were religious services that he had helped to start and faithfully attended throughout the remainder of his presidency.li

      It appears that Jefferson’s views were far removed from the interpretation of them by our modern courts today.
      Would Jefferson,
        a man who himself established and attended religious services on federal property while holding the office of the President,
      really think that it was against the good of our nation or our citizens
        for children to pray for their teachers, parents, and country at the beginning of each school day?
      You decide.

      For those who still want to rely on Jefferson as their expert regarding the First Amendment, it should not go unnoticed that
      exactly two days after writing his letter to the Danbury Baptists, he attended the weekly church service being held AT the U.S. Capitol.
      These were religious services that he had helped to start and faithfully attended throughout the remainder of his presidency.li

      It appears that Jefferson’s views were far removed from the interpretation of them by our modern courts today.
      Would Jefferson,
        a man who himself established and attended religious services on federal property while holding the office of the President,
      really think that it was against the good of our nation or our citizens
        for children to pray for their teachers, parents, and country at the beginning of each school day?
      You decide.

    Remember this flop, that left a bunch of worthless "money" in the vaults: It was almost as bad as their earlier flop;

      Susan B. Anthony dollar



      Despite the marketing attempts, the coin received an overwhelmingly negative reception from the public.
      ... many establishments throughout the country began refusing to accept them in payment.
      ... At the close of production, the Treasury encountered a dilemma:
        the Mint struck a large amount of dollars in anticipation of great public demand, resulting in a surplus of 520,000,000 coins in 1981.
        Melting the coins was impractical; the cost of manufacture was approximately 2 cents, and the 98 cents earned from seignorage was applied to the national debt.
        Had the coins been melted, their seignorage would have been added to the debt.
        Accordingly, the coins were placed in government storage, to be dispensed as needed.
    So there is MORE WORTHLESS MONEY that is in reality ... MORE DEBT !

    TO TOLERATE HOMOSEXUALS IS EVIL.
    This is what we get when we FAIL to OBEY God.
    For it is written:
      “ For whosoever shall commit ANY of these abominations,
        even the SOULS that commit them
          SHALL BE CUT OFF from among their people. ”
    Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
    These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
    I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

    Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
    Someone once asked
      "Why are they [homosexuals] all so angry?"
    The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE".
      rep·ro·bate \ˈre-prə-ˌbāt\ a. [L. reprobatus, reprobo, to disallow; re and probo, to prove.]

        1. Not enduring proof or trial; not of standard purity or fineness; disallowed; rejected.
          Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the Lord hath rejected them. Jer. 6.

        2. Abandoned in sin; lost to virtue or grace.
          They profess that they know God, but in works deny him, being abominable and disobedient, and to every good work reprobate. Titus 1.

        3. Abandoned to error, or in apostasy. 2Tim. 3.
    And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

    God has a cure for homosexuals.

      "Auster's First Law of Majority-Minority Relations in Liberal Society:
        The worse any designated minority or alien group behaves in a liberal society,
          the bigger become the lies of Political Correctness in covering up for that group.
      Thus, instead of the revelation over the last 14 months of Islam's dangerous and savage character leading
        (as would happen in a rational world)
      to a major discrediting of Muslims, or at least to a more skeptical attitude toward them,
      it has led to their being more favored, more coddled and more protected from criticism than ever before.
      They now get a whole new level of solicitous, sycophantic treatment,
        ranging from PBS "histories" of Islam that are more full of uncritical celebration of their subject than a tourist travelogue,
        to the media's constant attacks on the rest of us for indulging in an anti-Muslim backlash
          which has somehow never occurred.
      That last point leads us to the first corollary of Auster's First Law of Majority/Minority Relations in Liberal Society:
        The more egregiously any non-Western or non-white group behaves,
          the more evil whites are made to appear
            for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that group's bad behavior.
      The First Law and its corollary are intrinsic to liberalism.
      Once the equality of all human groups is accepted as a given,
        any facts that make a minority or foreign group seem worse than the majority native group
          must be either covered up
            or blamed on the majority."
    That's a great statement.

      [Charles Murray] "He's a libertarian with traditional values."
    You mean he supports LEGALIZATION of RECREATIONAL DRUGS ?

    You have NOT offered any answers to my questions.
    You've offered only INNUENDOES.

    Who did he support in 2008, ROMNEY ?
    Does he support Paul (since you say he's a "Libertarian" ?

    Like most people trying to straighten out the mess Congress has gotten us into, and vote for the "best person to do the job",
    I neither have the time, or the inclination to go reading 2 bloviating books by someone who sits around with a bunch of other college/university snobs, discussing how smart they are.

    Like Martin Morse Wooster said in one of the quotes I found while trying to figure out if Charles Murray was a PRETEND Conservative, or an out right LIBERAL lying about his conservative values:
      Murray sees the American elite as morally hollow.
      The upper class does many things well (including having strong and lasting marriages)
        but is unwilling and possibly unable to defend the virtues that lead to its success.
      “The signs that America’s new upper class has suffered a crisis of self-confidence are hard to ignore,” he writes.
      By being separate from the rest of the nation, this class fails to set an example of good behavior that is necessary for everyone to follow in order to succeed.
      The elite colleges are implicitly part of that problem.

      Intellectuals are known for overthinking problems.
      I have a nagging suspicion that Murray may have done exactly that in his argument
        that elite colleges are complicit in America’s “coming apart.”
      Is it really something new
        that the brightest young men and women tend to marry and have very bright children
        and that the upper classes don’t mingle much with the rest of society?

      Whatever the answers to those questions, Murray offers no specific solutions, including changes in the role of colleges.
      Should those schools change admissions policies?
        He doesn’t say.
      Should the elite individuals change their lives?
        All he says is that they should “think about ways to change.”
      Here, Murray’s long-established cultural pessimism shows through
        we’re facing a problem and there isn’t any clear solution to it.
      I hope it’s not as bad as he claims.
    But NONE OF THIS answers my questions !

      " Murray is at the forefront of advocating the need to save Western civ, which is rather opposite to “also in denial.”
      Or am I reading something that you are merely quoting? "
    The quote I assume you are talking about is not from Comment #85, but from Comment #49, where I stated:
      " His [Ben Domenech] "hero", Charles Murray is another political snob who's made his money out of selling colleges what they want to hear, who is also in denial.
              So he, also, is trying to sell Liberals, and Liberals who are ashamed to call themselves Liberals, but want to sell the label "neoconservatives", what they want to hear.
              They use "white identity politics" to try to SMEAR a REAL plan of attack to return this country from SOCIALISTS' POLICIES that are destroying us,
              and back to the principles and ideas our Founding Fathers used to MAKE THIS COUNTRY GREAT !
              Would they ever use the term "BLACK identity politics" ?
              Of course not !
              Ben Domenech is just as bad as George Will !
      And what offends these snobs so much, is the very real possibility that they may lose their ILLEGAL ALIENS that are their baby-sitters, gardeners, house-keepers, and financially indentured slaves. "
    Now, just HOW is Murray "advocating the need to save Western civ... " ?
      Is he "advocating" "Big Government" ?
      Is Murray "advocating" “a stronger safety net” ?
      Is he "advocating" "Social Justice" ?
      Is he "advocating" “a cleaner environment” ?
      Is Murray "advocating" “a stronger education for the 'academically gifted' ” ?
    Or .... is he a FIRM BELIEVER and ADVOCATOR of "INDIVIDUAL Liberty" ?
    Does Murray support "INDIVIDUAL Responsibility" ?
    Does he believe in and support "government having ONLY a MINIMAL ROLE in the lives of its citizens" ?

    In short:
      Is Charles Murray a REAL Conservative,
        or an old moderate DemocRAT
          who is ASHAMED to call himself a "Liberal" ?

    It makes PERFECT SENSE.
    I repost PROOF for those you have intentionally confused.

      FACT: Cruz’s father’s Cuban nationality at the time of Cruz’s birth, is irrelevant, according to the law at that time,
      just so long as he was a LEGAL Immigrant at the time of Ted Cruz's birth,
      AND both of Ted Cruz's parents were legally married to each other.

        What are the rules for people born between December 23, 1952 and November 13, 1986?

          The 14th Amendment IS a part of the U.S. Constitution and states in SECTION 5.
            The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
        So, under that power to legislate, Congress legislated and the President signed into law:
          When ONE parent was a US citizen and the other a foreign national,
            the US citizen parent must have resided in the US for a total of 10 years prior to the birth of the child,
              with five of the years after the age of 14.

          ... While there were initially rules regarding what the child must do to retain citizenship,
            amendments since 1952 HAVE ELIMINATED THESE REQUIREMENTS.

        When Ted Cruz was born, his parents were "IN WEDLOCK".
        Source

          In 1957, Rafael Bienvenido Cruz (Ted Cruz's father) decided to get out of Cuba by applying to the University of Texas.
          Upon being admitted, he adds, he got a four-year student visa at the U.S. Consulate in Havana.

          "Since he liked to eat seven days a week, he worked seven days a week, and he paid his way through the University of Texas," Ted Cruz says of his father, "and then ended up getting a job and eventually going on to start a small business and to work towards the American dream."

          Only he did that in Canada, where Ted was born.
          His father went there after having earlier obtained political asylum in the U.S. when his student visa ran out.
          He then got a green card, he says, and married Ted's mother, an American citizen.
          The two of them moved to Canada to work in the oil industry.

          "I worked in Canada for eight years," Rafael Cruz says. "And while I was in Canada, I became a Canadian citizen."

          The elder Cruz says he renounced his Canadian citizenship when he finally became a U.S. citizen in 2005 —
            48 years after leaving Cuba.
          Why did he take so long to do it?
            "I don't know. I guess laziness, or — I don't know," he says.

      So there is the law for the time Ted Cruz was born,
      AND HOW Ted Cruz's PARENTS fulfilled ALL those requirements of the law that time, for Ted Cruz to be a "Natural Born Citizen".
      Ted Cruz did NOT NEED a Court and a Judge to "Nationalize" him.

        Senator Cruz became a U.S. citizen at birth, and he never had to go through a naturalization process after birth to become a U.S. citizen,” said spokeswoman Catherine Frazier.
        ... The U.S. Constitution allows only a “natural born” American citizen to serve as president.
        Most legal scholars who have studied the question agree that includes an American born overseas to an American parent, such as Cruz.

    HOWEVER, I suspect that Rear Admiral Cindy Jaynes was following ORDERS given her from the United States' WORST ENEMY, the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF,
    It appears to be another INTENTIONAL DEGRADATION OF OUR FORCES by our RADICAL ISLAMIST IN CHIEF !

    Let's get VERY CLEAR on TED CRUZ and Immigration:
      Immigration

      As the son of a Cuban immigrant, Sen. Cruz celebrates LEGAL immigration.
      He has championed measures
        to secure the border,
        reform the LEGAL immigration system,
        and uphold the rule of law.

      Americans, and particularly Texans, have witnessed the harmful effects of an unsecure border,
        endangering the lives both of citizens and those who enter illegally.
      President Obama’s policies have encouraged drug smugglers, child abusers, murderers, and other dangerous criminals to traffick immigrant children into our nation under life-threatening conditions.
      In the summer of 2013 we witnessed a humanitarian crisis at our Southern Border, propelled by PROMISES OF AMNESTY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE .
      Immigrants deserve a better system in which they will be welcomed to the United States safely and with dignity.

      As a critical step to protecting families and inviting more people to enter LEGALLY, in 2014, Sen. Cruz proposed legislation TO PREVENT OBAMA FROM ILLEGALLY EXPANDING AMNESTY .
      The House acted to solve the ongoing crisis and passed bills that closely mirrored Sen. Cruz’s proposals,
        but regrettably the Senate DemocRATS REFUSED TO ALLOW A VOTE on the measures.

      In 2013, Sen. Cruz proposed amendments to the “Gang of 8” bill that would
        strengthen border security,
        expand green card opportunities,
        increase high-skilled “H1B” visas, PREVENT ILLEGAL ALIENS FROM RECEIVING WELFARE BENEFITS ,
        and enforce the rule of law.

    ALSO from On The Issues :
      Ted Cruz on Immigration

      End Obama's illegal amnesty via Congress' checks & balances
      Q: How to respond to the split within your party on immigration?
      What you're saying is
        that the Republicans should vote to fund the governments for all departments except one:
          no funding for the Department of Homeland Security,
        which handles immigration, rescinding President Obama's executive action,
        and if he vetoes that, he's responsible for shutting down the department.
      The problem is
        that's almost exactly what you did with the government shutdown across the entire government in 2013 with ObamaCare,
        and it backfired badly on your party.

      CRUZ: All across this country, Republicans campaigned, saying:
        if you elect a Republican Senate, we will stop President Obama's illegal amnesty.
      We need to HONOR WHAT WE SAID .
      We should use the constitutional checks and balances that we have TO REIN IN THE ABUSE OF POWER OF THE EXECUTIVE.
        Step #1 is IF the president implements this LAWLESS AMNESTY, that THE SENATE WILL NOT CONFIRM ANY executive or judicial nominees.


      Defund amnesty; and refuse any nominees until rescinded

      Q: How would you rescind President Obama's executive action on immigration?

      CRUZ: We should use the constitutional checks and balances that we have TO REIN IN THE ABUSE OF POWER OF THE EXECUTIVE .
        Step #1 that I have called for is the incoming majority leader should announce IF the president implements this LAWLESS AMNESTY, that THE SENATE WILL NOT CONFIRM ANY executive or judicial nominees,
          other than VITALl national security positions,
        for the next two years,
        UNLESS AND UNTIL the president ENDS THIS LAWLESS AMNESTY .
      That is AN EXPLICIT AUTHORITY given TO the Senate.

      Q: Are you saying the Senate should REFUSE TO CONFIRM the president's new nominee for attorney general?

      CRUZ: We have to REIN IN the executive.
      And step #2, we've got is THE POWER OF THE PURSE,
        and we should FUND ONE AT A TIME the CRITICAL PRIORITIES of the federal government,
          but ALSO USE THE POWER OF THE PURSE TO ATTACH RIDERS .


      No path to citizenship for 1.65 million illegals in Texas

      When discussing what to do about the 1.65 million ILLEGAL immigrants living in Texas, … CRUZ again said
        HE DID NOT SUPPORT A PATH TO CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL immigrants living in America, …

        Give police more power to ask about immigration status

        Cruz accused Dewhurst of using his position as head of the Texas Senate to KILL A BILL last year that would have given police more power to ask anyone they detain about their citizenship status--a charge Dewhurst denied.
        Both agreed that the US has FAILED TO SECURE ITS BORDER with Mexico,
        and said they OPPOSE AMNESTY for ILLEGAL immigrants and the Obama administration's new directive
          allowing many young illegal immigrants brought to the US as children to be exempted from deportation.


        Boots on the ground, plus a wall

        Border wall: James and Leppert OPPOSE A WALL,
        Dewhurst and CRUZ tout "boots on the ground" AND A WALL IN SOME PLACES .


        Triple the size of the Border Patrol

        CRUZ on immigration: Wants to TRIPLE [the]SIZE of Border Patrol.
        Says Dewhurst supported in-state tuition for kids of ILLEGAL immigrants.
        Dewhurst: I have always been against an amnesty program.
          "If they want to be a citizen, they ought to go home and reapply."
        Dewhurst says he was against tuition for children of illegal immigrants.


        Strengthen border security and increase enforcement

        Ted Cruz has worked to STRENGTHEN BORDER SECURITY and help ensure that America remains a nation of laws.
        Among other efforts, he has worked on efforts to INCREASE PENALTIES for felons WHO ENTER THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY .
        Ted authored a U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief on behalf of 10 states in Lopez v. Gonzales,ILLEGALLY .
