    Where? Show us one verse that supports the view that God has no love or compassion for those of His children who don't pass through the narrow door. Did Abraham come within an inch of sacrificing Isaac because he didn't love the kid, and was mad at him? So if that equation wasn't so simple, what makes you think God's decision causes Him no pain at all? Did He tell you? Did He carve it in stone and make you climb the mountain for it, or did He just call your cell phone? Arrogant cuss. Here's another theological question for you to ignore: Is there a difference between someone who assumes intimate details of God's psyche and reports them as fact without a shred of evidence, and a false prophet?

    Why would Rand Paul sit down in the CNN studio and assume that any of the millions of viewers he's talking to are even marginally in their right minds?

    And that section of Romans 11 is about Christians helping non-Christians to know and to choose God. But I was waiting to see if he had a more entertaining way to twist those verses than even SF's chicanery.

    I think it's obvious by now that the OP is not going to admit that blind partisanship is worse than useless--it's a way to hand the battle to the enemy. But if anyone else has any doubts, consider the Pro Life Voter. Roe v. Wade happened, and the Republican politicians began promising to do something about it. So, those opposed to abortion began voting for them. Then the Republicans did nothing about abortion at all. So, the Pro Life Voters began to question the efficacy of voting for Republicans. Then the trolls began saying, well, they might do something someday, and Democrats don't even promise to do anything to stop it. So since Republicans are a maybe and Democrats are a no, you might as well take your chances with the Republicans. This kept Pro Life Voters on the Ruling Parties Bandwagon for a couple of decades. But then the grumbling started again. So the trolls said, you could go third party. But you can vote Republican just to send a message. So vote Republican, and maybe people will think every Republican voter is sending that message. Now it's 44 years later, and what did all that blind partisanship get for the Pro Life Voter? Abortion is a foregone conclusion, and no politician even pretends he intends to do anything about it any more. Seems to me there's a lesson in that for us, somehow. Fuck partisanship. Going partisan for either of these parties is akin to pulling down your pants, bending over, and placing a tube of lube on your tailbone. Calling partisans stupid is an insult to stupid people.

    It's brilliant. If Democrats vote against it, suddenly it no longer matters to young voters who shut down the government. The Republicans were forced to vote for the end of Prohibition, but regardless of what they were really voting for, they voted for it. The Democrats were voting against Republican success, not marijuana, but they voted against Prohibition nevertheless. I love when the Pauls jack with the partisan games. The amendment probably won't pass, so we ought to spread the word about this thing now.

    But you're sure working to make it possible. The principles of liberty are timeless and ageless. Sacrificing those for partisanship may seem like a necessary evil for limiting the erosion in the short term. But it opens the door for that dreaded 'leftward drift' to happen to this place. Indeed, it makes it happen immediately, because the overwhelming majority of Republicans are left of libertarians. The very act of labelizing, demonizing and trying to hound leftists out of the conversation moves this place to the left. And pretending the difference between Democrats and mainstream Republicans is substantial and meaningful is a complete anathema to the site's purpose. Trying to protect the site from people on the 'wrong side' of the partisan divide does more to destroy it than leftists can ever do.

    He's making an ass of himself. Now's not the time to discourage him. So, Zippy, is this an intel report? Are the totalitarians trying to redefine revenge killings as post facto defense of loved ones, despite the fact that it clearly brings no one back to life, so they can redefine actual self defense as per facto revenge, and use that propaganda to make self defense illegal? I honestly thought posting silly zerohedge partisan tripe couldn't possibly lead to anything positive, but I guess I was wrong. Zippy's using the opportunity to make an ass of himself, and maybe alerting us to a future totalitarian strategy. Such a deal.

    Only you could use ex post facto as an excuse for your silly-assed propaganda. If your ex post facto silliness really holds water, then why is it people who kill in self-defense are allowed to use that as a defense in every court in the land, and people who kill in "ex post facto self-defense" are not?

    Do you really not know the difference between self-defense and retaliation--do you really think someone's life can be defended after their death--or are you just trolling us with silly propaganda?

    That's true. It isn't what zerohedge said in the OP. But it's true. You'd think if zerohedge meant, 'Democrats turned the city into a war zone by disarming the law abiding but not disarming the scofflaws,' they would have just said it outright. Is that what they're using them for? Then why do the Head Democrats in Charge keep charging them with murder when they do?

    Because a private sector CEO has a financial incentive to do that pruning. If people can be laid off without revenue dropping, that means more profit for dividends, and that means a higher stock price. A politician, on the other hand, gets financial incentives for protecting donors from bureaucrats. The more bureaucrats there are, the more protection donors need, and the more potential donors there are that need protection.

    Are Christians descended from Adam? Because I've got a verse in Luke 3 that says Adam was descended from God, and I can holler 'Gotcha!' just as well as you can. Will this gotcha game change your mind, change my mind, or bring anyone else to enlightenment? Yes or no. You look like one, too. Is their dogma more important to God than their faith? Yes or no.

    Good Lord. Do you really need to derail this thread to discuss the devil's bodily fluids? Yes or no. If you want to make an ass of yourself that desperately, it seems to me you could start a thread entitled, 'Does Satan Have Semen?' I think you should as a public service. That way more people can get a stress-relieving chuckle from it. Don't forget the poll!

    The American public is like el Toro. Few of them can take their eyes off the big red cape in the matador's left hand. But the sword is in the matador's right hand. Pray to whom it won't happen? Better to pray they're dumb enough to stage it outside of a gun-free zone, so it can be foiled by the public.

    Oh, yeah, that must be it. People are just killing each other because the mayor wears a D. If zerohedge wants to blame Democrats for this, why don't they just do it? "They only stop killing each other long enough to go elect Democrats. So clearly all Democrat voters are murderers." I seldom go to zerohedge. Is the whole site composed of partisan divide-and-conquer propaganda? Does the OP honestly believe Democrats are responsible for all the evil in the world, and Republicans for all the good? Has he convinced anyone else?

    Yes, we export guns. But we export more bombs and missiles. And those we actually deliver. There's your "democracy". Don't forget to send us a thank you card for showing you the light. After all, if you can send us a thank you card, it means we didn't aim our "democracy" very well, or we wouldn't have missed you. Seems like a nice little note of gratitude is the least you could do.

    Is this the real reason for the government shutdown? Did all the whistle blowers get a holiday from work so the "team players" could come into the office and revise some more history undetected and unmolested? After all, we all know what they really "sincerely regret" was failing to get that stuff destroyed before someone made them pledge to preserve it. Better to be more proactive with the skeletons in Obama's closet.
