    During all of this, especially at the beginning, people were chanting and cheering how safe and effective the vax was and trusted politicians and government enough to get it. It is alarming that now after all that has happened, the same exercise is being repeated again, this time at the state level in regard to "one-size-fits-all" state-dictated religion.

    Clergy, Public-School Parents Sue to Block Louisiana Law Requiring Public Schools to Display the Ten Commandments June 24, 2024 BATON ROUGE, La. — A multi-faith group of nine Louisiana families with children in public schools filed suit in federal court today to block H.B. 71, a new state law requiring all public elementary, secondary, and postsecondary schools to display the Ten Commandments in every classroom. The plaintiffs in Roake v. Brumley, including Jewish parents and parents who are pastors and reverends, are represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Freedom from Religion Foundation, with Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP serving as pro bono counsel. In their complaint filed today in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana, the plaintiffs, who are Jewish, Christian, Unitarian Universalist, and non-religious, assert that the newly enacted statute violates longstanding U.S. Supreme Court precedent and the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment. More than 40 years ago, in Stone v. Graham, the Supreme Court overturned a similar state law, holding that the separation of church and state bars public schools from posting the Ten Commandments in classrooms. No other state requires the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public schools.

    TRUST THY Politicians and the Government - they/it knows best. Now for the fun part: "Required to display": who pays for the material that is to be displayed? Once the Ten Commandments are accepted, what about the next community over or another state that "requires" Sharia to be displayed? SHALL that be funded too?

    I don't buy it. But if true, you and others who support that pathetic law are kicking it off beautifully to a tremendously great start by giving passes to POLITICIANS who enact such unprecedented laws. They don't hate us for our freedoms. Amerikans do.

    Two negatives do not make a positive. There is a sound reason for separation of church and state. This is another litmus test to see how grounded people actually are, and passage of the OP law is direct evidence that this country's founding principles of freedom and liberty is declining from within.

    QAnon renamed Badlands Trump Will Save Us Sent by God? There was a lot of good information in that theatrical production, but they obviously left out the stuff that they did not want known. One thing is clearly evident in that video; TRUMP SURE LOVES FEDERALIZING EVERYTHING. I shall not be deceived.

    And the overwhelming majority of Americans do? Seems to me if the majority of Americans did abide by the Bill of Rights , we wouldn't have much to worry about. For the sake of argument, let's push the blame on foreigners because WE hate ourselves for our freedoms. Take Patriot Act, TSA, etc., for instance.

    Read Post #9. It was "Republicans" who passed the OP law. Distraction or not, this goes to show how far people/legislators have gone away from the Bill of Rights, starting with the very first one.

    Acceptable answer. While you were typing that, I was typing this: This is the slippery slope of not adhering to each and every one of the Bill of Rights. While the Ten Commandments sound innocent in nature, and in my view, a very good set of words to live by, take into consideration the number of immigrants that are being invited here. Many might follow Sharia Law, or some other religion that you do not agree with. Should those local/state governments legislate into law a "requirement" to display such doctrines or religions? Or are the Ten Commandments somehow the exception, deeply hidden in the 1st Amendment?

    To atheists, and other religions which do not believe in or follow the doctrine of the first 4 Commandments would have a strong case that it does establish a religion.

    TPTB want the voters to hate the other side so badly that both sides will vote even harder. They need that buy-in and the consent. As far as completely abolishing the IRS, totally scrapping FedDeptEd, fully defunding OWS/Project NextGen and other things that really matter, TPTB will make certain that doesn't happen by GIFTING the voters preselected candidates and the illusion of choice. It's the stupid little bones that each side offers relating to the constituents they are trying to target. Then, passes are given, the country keeps sliding, and people can't wait until the next time to do it over again.

    So, more soon-to-be-broken promises (assuming Trump is the next POTUS) from the king of same. As I recall Reagan made the same promise, and broke it.

    Swordsmyth tries to stay clear of topics such as that. He has yet to even respond to the Federally-Funded Nationwide "Stop and Frisk" with complete Local LEO Immunity. Which would involve creating yet another Federal Agency.

    Right :tears: How many crack-proof safes were cracked? How did the unsinkable Titanic sink? Too bad Trump didn't help educate his followers so that they could in turn contact their reps. Instead, he Pied-Piper'd "republicans" into buying everything that he had to sell. Don't blow smoke up my ass, Swordy, it doesn't work.

    Everything is about money. But let's suppose you are onto to something: He never stood in front of the podium explaining how bad the bills really were, in order to educate his dedicated "followers" and get them to contact their representatives. Instead he repeatedly threatened Massie, even to the point of wanting to throw him out of the republican party.

    Whenever it began: 1. If Trump didn't know about it, he is not qualified to run this country, the contract/business person that he is. 2. If Trump did know about it, he didn't do anything to correctly to address it. Either way it's a fail. Either way, his "solutions" require more government intervention. As to your post above, it was the bills that he signed into law which actually funded them.

    Good grief. Is that how he's going to roll "Stop and Frisk" out, and pledge “to indemnify all police officers and law-enforcement officials"? Take federal tax money and leave it up to the states? Don't the states already have a right to refuse federal money? Without defunding and eliminating the federal agency altogether , I'm not sure how many states would actually refuse "free" money, which they can already refuse now if they wanted to.

    Mises Wire Soham Patil 06/22/2024 In our modern world, most states are democracies or at least call themselves “democratic.” The adoption of democracy is hailed as one of humanity’s greatest achievements. Once upon a time, humanity broke out of the shackles of monarchies and has never looked back since. Nowadays, all citizens in democratic countries are free and safe from despots. Except, that is far from the truth. Democratic systems have been around for a long time. Ancient Greece comes to mind as the most prominent example of democracy in antiquity. While modern democracies are wildly different from the ones in ancient Athens, they are still susceptible to the pitfalls applicable to all democracies. Democracies violate freedom of association. Proponents of democracies often argue that everyone is given a vote and that this equates to fair and just representation. However, this binds the citizenry into the social contract since they are forced to abide by the results of the democracy even if they did not consent to a government. Simply giving everyone a vote is not valid restitution for forcing them to abide by the rules of the state. This hasn’t stopped democracies from attempting to manufacture consent to their social contract by claiming that a right to vote is sufficient as consent. If four thieves sneak into a house and then outvote the homeowner to transfer possession of the home to them, the result could hardly be termed just. Democracies aren’t infallible and do not justify decisions as moral based solely on the will of the majority.

    If you keep posting actual facts like this you’re really gonna confuse him. On second thought, probably not. Zealots just ignore facts and soldier on.
