How Black Was Jesus?

"Although for some Christ is a figure of inflexible rectitude, with perfect hair and feet that never need washing, he was no respecter of authority, money, class or the law" Here is the problem with the thinking that allows such a show as this be be produced. This twit thinks that Jesus was "no respecter of authority". When, in fact, Jesus had great respect for the ultimate authority (God). Jesus did not respect corruption of God's authority, and thus he did not respect the Sanhedrin, but that does not translate into a lack of respect for uncorrupted authority. If you believe that Jesus was no respecter of authority, then anything goes, except respecting authority.

The Anatomy of Terror

As the people of Gaza voted for Hamas, and supported Hamas in the removal of any PA/PLO elements from Gaza, I'd say the number of Gaza residents who fall into that category of "do not wish to support Hamas", is very low.

ISIS to America: "We Are in Your Streets"

In a war where innocents will be killed, and the choices are to kill the innocents within the terrorist's lands or allowing the terrorists to kill our innocents, I'd vote to kill the innocents who surround the terrorists if the terrorists are killed along with them. To me, protecting your own is what it is about.

To Defeat the Islamic State

Yes, Pat. This view of ISIS is eerily reminiscent of the view of Al Qaeda espoused by the Clinton administration. They are small, in land locked country, what can they do to America. Yeah, right. Let's tell that to the 3000 people who died on 9/11/2001, when Al Qaeda brought down the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

Where Open Carry Is Legal And Illegal

I look at that map, and see a lot of "infringement" going on. What part of "shall not be infringed" don't these folks understand? They make up new "rights" out of whole cloth, but ignore or misinterpret that which is plainly spelled out in the Bill of Rights!
John Ransom, are you serious? Have you forgotten your history? "Blacks didn’t impose slavery upon themselves", you said. Yet, that is exactly what happened. Black Africans in Africa captured other Black Africans through tribal warfare, and then sold them to Arab and European traders. This is a well documented fact. You then quote Sir Edmund Burke, “I do not know the method of drawing up an indictment against a whole people,” while you indict the entire White race as the culpable party, saying "White society did that"?!? Seriously? You usually have a better handle on truth than this example from your writings. Though I will agree that black Americans have certainly suffered in the past from the institution of Slavery, and further under the unconscionable Jim Crow laws, the "original sin" here does not fall upon "White Society". Perpetuation, maybe, but not the cause.
Actually, it was the Romans who gave the region the name Palestine, after the Jewish revolt which resulted in the dispersal of the Jews to the far corners of the empire and placing a ban barring Jews from living in Jerusalem. It was an insult to the Jews to rename their homeland after the Philistines who were ancient Israel's long fought enemies.

Marijuana vs. Scotch and a Low IQ

If there is any interstate commerce in marijuana, the Feds will regulate marijuana grown and sold within the same State. Just as they do with other crops today. That is what the current fight has been about over firearms in some States recently. And, predictably, the Federal Courts are siding with the Federal government.

There is so much wrong with this article and the mind set behind the writing of it, that it is appalling.
Larry, you might want to add this one to your listing, and note there have been no riots, looting or other death as a result of this incident. " Police in Salt Lake City are continuing their probe into an Aug. 11 shooting outside a 7-Eleven convenience store, when a black police officer, whom local media are referring to as “not white,” shot and killed 20-year-old Dillon Taylor, who was unarmed at the time, according to his supporters"
