Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the liberal Democrats want to take guns away from Americans?

competition is completely different from practice

how so, you dont think that killing something and leaving it there to rot is the same as killing it and consuming it ones necessary the others not.

possibly but i was more referring to say what police do with guns

I agree. Firearms where The Best Tool made by mankind. And yes, Guns are not all about self defense, And these libs want to take away The Joy of shooting a gun.

What part about ’’shooting’’ does not involve either 1) Self defence, 2) Killing things, or 3) Target practice?

competition, and hunting is not killing things mind you(even if that is the out come its tantamount to saying eating burgers is murder) also shooting could be used for defense of others.

No it doesn’t. You are comparing apples and oranges. Drugs are shown to decrease cognitive function….That doesn’t bode well for children if their parents are incapable of say preparing food or going to the grocery store. Also I don’t like the idea of parents getting welfare that’s meant to help their children and then buying drugs with it. Welfare is certainly not an entitlement and if you are on it you should be required to prove you are using it correctly. If anything I think welfare should even be tightened up more and have more restrictions on how and what it can be used on. However like food stamps it will never be perfect…..I’ve been offered a $200 EBT card for $50 that’s ridiculous, but i guess when you are high you dont want to eat anyway.

Actually you’re wrong. If you have paid any taxes, ever, then you are in fact entitled to welfare. It’s part of the whole “paying taxes” thing.

hogwash i need some proof of that buddy last i checked most people on welfare dont pay income taxes, and have very little sales tax associated with them. which wouldnt matter anyway as sales tax is state level not federal. so no they dont pay taxes but are given free money. which should come with stipulations

Not necessarily.
Say you commit murder. Murder is against the law, isn’t it? If you’ve read the Bible enough, you should also know that murder is a sin.
Say you don’t pay your taxes. That’s against the law, is it not? Nowhere in the Bible does it say that not paying your taxes is a sin.

ok your on the right track but the bible does say that that breaking the law is a sin. since breaking the law is exercising lawlessness which is as my verse shows sin. lawlessness is sin. lawlessness is achieved by not following the law.

Sin is a religious term. The law, at least in the way it is meant here, is not. So violating against any law is inherently not a sin. Depending on what you personally believe it can additionally be one, though, but that’s a totally different concept.

What supporting evidence do you have of this?

Since I’m atheist and don’t believe there is such thing as sin, I’ll rephrase the question slightly before answering. Such as; if the law is unjust, is it just break it?

This has been debated for centuries on end. I believe it depends on the nature of the law. While laws regarding seatbelts may be thought of as overbearing, they’re minor laws and in the end are good for all involved. If the law, however, is a violation of a major human right such as freedom of religion or right to an education, then it may be just to break the law.

No not even close.

let me ask this directly: Is it a sin to speed even though the bible does not directly say that it is.

Ok so lets assume that the laws in question are not directly contradictory to biblical commands.
Is it a sin to break the law even if the action by itself would not be considered a sin according to the bible.

I am of the opinion that breaking the law is a sin period. With the exception of a law that would cause direct contradiction to biblical commands. Laws that impede biblical commands I think would be best followed all that is needed is that the individual plan ahead better such that they are not impeded.
I know of many people that like to take the other side and say things like smoking marijuana is not a sin or speeding is not a sin. I do not feel this is the case.

1 John 3:4
Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.

Topic: Serious Discussion / How's America the best country in the world?

Meh I’m sure the founding fathers would actually be proud of your angst with the country. I’m of the opinion that we should have had a few more revolts against our government long before Obama mind you. In that mind frame if the UK is rioting why isn’t America, and I mean really rioting. The stupid idea of Reganomics doesn’t work never has never will causes such a disparity of wealth that we are starting to see more and more “flash” mobs looting retail stores. America could be one of the greatest countries in the world but alas as long as our legislative branch cares more for protecting corporations and the justice system is corrupt and lacking a way to deal with the actual problems causing crime, and having an executive leader than caves in to every demand expected of him which is hardly leading America will decline and sharply. There are other problems as well our economic system which is based upon debt is just not sustainable. The last time I checked for every dollar in existence there is like 1.6 dollars “owed” to someone else. Its a system designed to collapse. Think of it this way you all remember Y2K right well it was an issue because the original programmers assumed that before the year 2000 came along all these businesses would have different systems in place without the Y2K bug. Well same thing with the Fractional Reserve System the people who first implemented it figured that before it became a problem that some other system would be around. Yet it seems to me that the reason none of this is happening is because of greed. People with wealth HOARD their money people who are rich want to be wealthy and so they hoard their money too. I say to fix the problems how about the 98% of us struggling to some extent say fuck the richest 2% and do whats been needing to be done for a long time. March on Washington demand that congressmen can only serve say 3-4 terms demand a FLAT tax. Demand that corporate entity be dismissed. Demand to close tax loop holes that only serve a minority.

What I am getting at is that we the people own this country we can take it back and it doesn’t need to be violent at all. That’s what I want and for me that could put the country back on the right track; of being the greatest country again.

What I’m saying is that you shouldn’t disallow a group from doing something when another group can. I’m not looking for examples in which this is the case currently. I’m arguing against it in general, so if you find an example in real life, I might just state I disagree with that as well. I disagree with disallowing the “disabled” from having children.

Do you disagree with irresponsible people(people found guilty of felonies violent crime or psychologically unstable) being disallowed ownership of firearms. Whilst not having a problem with your idea of responsible people having them.

I agree. I do however think that new users should show that they are capable of adhering to grammar rules, everybody not make it a habit to use bad grammar. I truly dislike the grammar nazi’s that try to use bad grammar as a legitimate way of arguing ad hominem at its finest.

wait 102 X 4 = 408
408 + 270 = 678

I highly doubt you get by on 32.50 a week nor that you live on 400 a month.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Social Security is not an Entitelment

Originally posted by AaronB:

That’s an interesting attempt to make it sound benign, but the fact is that people who paid into it consider it to be “their” money that they’re getting back. In any investment, you don’t necessarily get back the same dollars that you put into it, nor do people expect that. What they expect is that they put in their money, and they get money back later.

Then they should do the smart thing and not invest but SAVE. I’m fortunate enough to come from a good family I and my siblings have been given 10K yearly to go into a roth IRA. I personally would be much happier not having to pay into SS at all.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the liberal Democrats want to take guns away from Americans?

you know a .357 revolver can fire .38s I rather prefer autos but if i were going to get a revolver id go with multiload capable revolvers like .44mags .357mags and the taurus judge. alot of times when the issue is hunting handguns just do not have the barrel length to generate the velocities to hunt without undue suffering to the game also revolvers lose quite a bit of “punch” to the gases that are expelled from between the cylinder and the barrel. I’m not so familiar with .357s being out of SAMMI specs back in the day a good bit before my time but from what i have near always heard is that modern propellants and loading techniques make cartridges much more powerful than they were.

Karma one of the biggest gun laws “passed” in this country was the 1939 miller case, IT WAS DONE WITHOUT A DEFENSE PRESENT!!!!!! you think that happened by accident!!!

How is it that the every other time the people are mentioned its about personal rights, but in the second amendment its collective?!!

How is it that some people try to use the second amendment to protect the government from us when the ENTIRE bill of rights is actually about the opposite???

Some of our posters very likely do yearn for those days, Overlord.

AND, quite sadly, some of them try to rationalize those tenets by tying them to the “Bible”//religion.

I think accusations like that should be backed. how is wanting tougher criminal punishments lead directly to racism and sexism? sounds like the stupidest connection made for the sole purpose to try to discredit another person all 3 of you disappoint me

I wonder why people are so uptight about knives.

And you can carry as many sharp pencils as you want everywhere.

Yeah, but you could also carry sharper safety pins or sewing needles. A knife would fuck someone up WAY worse than a pencil.
(Good luck slashing a throat/stomach with a pencil)

dead is dead how it happens matters not. do you think a victim killed by pencils would have preferred sharp pencils banned?

OT actually a large balisong with a small blade would be very out of balance again making it near useless for doing tricks.

Its retarded that one would think a balisong could be taken out of concealment and used to assault somebody faster than any other knife they are illegal because some people think they are more scary, and no offense bandito but your going to have a hell of a hard time doing any kind of tricks with such a small balisong

Topic: Serious Discussion / If Global Warming is False

I read that article as well, and it greats bothers me greatly as it is in direct contradiction of what I have been told/learned. It does however have some holes in it:
1. It is only addressing the effect of CO2, there are other gases being produced in larger quantities directly by man that have an effect on global warming namely Methane.
2. It doesn’t address other reasons why we should worry about the human threat of CO2 production, specifically the fact that carbonic acid in the oceans is directly in proportion to atmospheric CO2. With out life in oceans we will all die.
3. It makes it sound like the amount of heat its holding which it claims is “not much” has 0 effect which may not be the case.

However the more I check it the more validity it seems to have I just wouldn’t agree that there is now nothing to worry about just maybe we have alot more time to do something about this issue that previously thought.
