My advice is to recruit law enfircement officers to join your congregation. They are required to always carry their weapons and are trained in assessing threats as well as responding to them. The policies of some churches that discourage concealed carry don't apply to them. In my observation, the two kinds of shooters who attack churches are either thieves or insane. You can discourage thieves by collecting donations primsrily as checks, not cash, and depositing it in the bank soon after meetings are over on Sunday. Insane people are crazy but not stupid, so a church should not advertise itself as "gun free". They want attention, so they don't carry concealed weapons, but enter with guns blazing.
If Martin had survived and Zimmerman had died, Martin would be asserting the Stand Your Ground rule in his self defense case against criminal liability for Zimmerman's death. Then Holder would be praising it! Progressives like to make Everything potentially illegal, so they can use their power to punish their enemies and forgive their friends.

Obama cannot bring himself to call the mass murder by Nidal Hasan an Islamic terror attack, even though he was shouting "Allahu akbar" and was emailing with a guy killed by an Obamadrone. Obama refuses to accept reality, and makes the rest of us suffer from his schizophrenia.

This crosses the line of permissible regulation and is a shutdown order. It is a government "taking" without just compensation. The power companies should respond with a lawsuit in the Court of Federal Claims for compensation to their shareholders of the full value of the plants' capital and expected income through the life of the plants. The Fifth Amendment requires the Federal government to compensate people when it takes away their property for a government purpose. This is no different than if they wanted to put an interstate highway through the middile of a power plant site.
At campuses like Columbia that have sponsored "sex week" events, with presentations by porn stars and prostitutes, would this new policy allow the students who object to those things file a complaint for sexual harassment with the Department of Justice? Hoist the Politically correct on their own petard!
In Chicago, a class of 25 students is supported by as much as $625,000 per year. After $100,000 for teacher salary, that leaves $515,000 for a classroom and supplies, books, utilities, buses and food. How can you spend that much? That is enough to buy an iPad, iPhone, and desktop computer, internet service, clothes, and food and medical care for every kid every year.
Chicago area school districts spend $21,000 to $25,000 per pupil per year! That includes AVERAGE salaries of $90,000 for elementary teachers, $110,000 for high school teachers, and $165,000 to $200,000 for administrators. Schools in other states spend half as much but get twice the achievement on national tests, high school graduation, and going on to college. But this union president is demanding that property taxes be.increased on landowners so they can pay even more for the same failed product. That is the Obama approach: Failure means you should get MORE money!

My Apology to Mormon Readers

Mike, the archeology of the Holy Land does not affirm the existence of Abraham or Moses or most of the pre-exilic history. The archeology of Meso-America is still so full of lacuna that there is plenty of room for the events of the Book of Mormon, which largely predate most of what we know about Mayan history, and largely was not in the same geographic area. On the other hand, an expert linguist for the Uto-Aztecan language group finds as much as 10% of the words in those Native American languages have Hebrew cognates.
