    I saw it with my sons and their friends (most of them white) the weekend it came out (it was their birthday weekend.) It was a GREAT movie! One of the best action films I've seen. Ben Shapiro had to admit, after he finally saw it, that he actually liked it too. All of the right wingers hating on it should actually see it. There were a few libertarian themes in the movie. Should Wakanda, which was walled off from the world, get involved in "humanitarian wars?" What about immigrants and refugees coming to Wakanda? Erik Kilmonger, the main villain in the film, got his military prowess being a CIA assassin in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries. (Blowback anyone?) Should vibranium be traded with the outside world or kept secret? It was a good movie with far more questions than answer. I plan to see it again. Much better then the overtly anti-family agenda in Wonder Woman.

    Why don't we do a moneybomb to raise funds to file a lawsuit on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters for Hillary stealing the nomination from him? I'd gladly pitch in for that. It would be worth it just for the chuckles. Fictionalized account of Bill Gates arguing with Steve Jobs. "Bill Gates: You and I are like guys that had this rich neighbor Xerox. And they just left the door open. And you went in to steal the TV set. Only you realize I got there first. I GOT THE LOOT STEVE! And you're yelling? That's not fair? I wanted to try to steal it first! You're too late. Steve Jobs: We're better than you are! We have better stuff. Bill Gates: You don't get it Steve. That doesn't matter."

    Yeah. I remember that now. But this is what is stuck in my mind from 2008. And: I guess that's why the official campaign at times disliked the grassroots. It's hard to control the narrative when the grassroots garners more publicity than you do.

    I will say this about the MNPD. There are some good cops on there (I personally know a couple) and there are some that are dirty as hell. True story I was once hired to defend someone on federal drug charges. His defense? He was initially busted by a Metro police officer. The police officer said he wanted this dealer to work for him so that he could "catch bigger fish" and let him keep $10,000. I was trying to cut a deal with the federal prosecutor and brought up the possibility of a dirty cop thinking the federal prosecutor would want to bust him. In negotiations, one of the DEA agents investigating this said "Oh yea. I talked to that officer. He said he let your client keep that money because it was Christmas." :rolleyes: Thankfully his mother decided she wanted a more experience lawyer, hired someone else and I got off the case. I was a guppy swimming with sharks.

    You know that at this point it's been confirmed by independent sources that no chemical weapons were used right? It's not just "Maybe the rebels did it." There was no chemical attack period. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?521562-There-was-NO-GAS-ATTACK-IN-DOUMA-SYRIA! Yeah. That would be nice. Of course that was before the fake chemical attack.

    1) Total BS. There were no peaceful protesters. There were only ISIS front men. The KKK rallying at Charlottesville claimed to be "peaceful" too. 2) Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators were encouraging violent regime change BEFORE the protests even started. https://wikileaks.org/clinton-emails/emailid/12601 If Gadhafi falls within the next few months, there will be another model for regime change: that of limited but targeted military support from the West combined with an identifiable rebellion. Not that this can be easily applied in Syria. It hasn't even been easily applied in Libya, and Syria would be a much harder nut to crack. Furthermore, the Syrian opposition is far from united or

    None of those people would be dead or homeless if Hillary Clinton hadn't pushed for regime change because she was mad at Assad for attempting to help Gadafi in Libya. https://wikileaks.org/clinton-emails/emailid/16845 Obama didn't start bombing ISIS until Russia got involved in the conflict. And you don't seem to care about the Christians and other religious minorities brutally killed, not collateral damage like the people Obama killed in the airstrike on the Afghanistan hospital, or made homelest by the rebels who are either all ISIS or allied with ISIS with the exception of the Kurds.

    Typically when there have been false flag operations, the people being handled by the FBI thought they were part of a sting operation. That happened in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing where the FBI's patsy made the bomb. The FBI was going to prosecute him when he pulled out tapes showing him talking to his handler and telling the handler "Why did you make me use real explosives when I suggested that we should use harmless powder?"

    The Wiki article had two sources, but only one link. In the link that was there, I didn't see a quote. If it isn't true, you might want to consider editing it; it is Wikipedia, after all.

    You should read other NRx blogs and such, you'd probably find a lot to like. There's a big theonomist contingent, though to be fair, it is probably the smallest of the three wings. You're definitely right that I would want to run a society much differently than the US is now, or has ever been. I do like the Constitution insofar as it serves my values, by the US as a construct has always been a product of my much-hated modernity.

    I do have some questions about theonomy:

    1. Would a theonomic civilization allow anyone to leave for any reason?
    2. Would they allow secession for a contingent in their controlled geographic area who disagree with them?
    3. What would stop someone from conspiring to falsely accuse someone of a capital crime such as homosexuality? What would the standard of evidence be?

    I kind of think you and Sola throw around the word idolatry a little too loosely. Nowhere in the Bible does it say anything that makes me think pledging allegiance is idolatry.

    In fact, a lot of the main guys in the Bible suck up to the Kings a little too much for my taste, but nowhere is it suggested that they are sinning. I think idolatry is a pretty literal thing, I think there's a difference between being overly attached to something, and worshiping it.

    Do you think it was immoral of David to froth around and act insane, and to deceive the enemies while being employed by them? What about working for them, was that wrong too?

    My point was actually that you still oppose things from more of a libertarian view, than a theonomist view, not saying that's bad. Just an observation.
  7. Sola, I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I'm just curious, do you agree with Engelsma that we should be dividing over eschatology? Even OTC doesn't go that far.

    Mind you, I believe that today's society is way too "tolerant" and afraid to stand for truth, but I think Christians dividing over eschatology is more than God would ask of us.

I'm Done

by Christian Liberty on 07-27-2013 at 06:53 PM
I'm so sick of seeing "Support our troops" or even worse "Fighting for our freedoms."

During a trip to Word of Life for a week of camp I saw a bumper sticker that said "God bless our troops, especially our snipers."

Usually, when trying to prove a point about war, I don't discuss the troops. I'll probably continue to do this. One teacher I had was open minded to listening to what I had to say about war, but had a father who had served in
