• Isn't the "good guys with gun beat bad guys with guns" an inaccurately dangerous concept?

    Say that a good person was given a pistol and the bad guy was also given a pistol. You place them in a barren wasteland. Their goal is to kill one another. The good person will be given a reason-he/she is to kill the bad person because the bad person has a bounty and they've committed heinous crimes worthy of death by law.

  • What's the difference between a soldier and a mercenary?

    For me a soldier and a mercenary are two sides of the same coin. What separates these two are the context for why they join to be in service. Now, mercenaries join to get the benefits through contracts so they usually have that selfish label to them. Soldiers are presumed to defend the country and they usually have that selfless notion to them.... show more
    For me a soldier and a mercenary are two sides of the same coin. What separates these two are the context for why they join to be in service. Now, mercenaries join to get the benefits through contracts so they usually have that selfish label to them. Soldiers are presumed to defend the country and they usually have that selfless notion to them. Here's the thing though..they all get rewarded for their service. Can anyone deny that the military offers some great benefits for being in service? Just like how for mercenaries they get paid $500+ per day-btw thats the lower end depending on the role. These two groups get good money or benefits. This year there are many talks about patriotism..and of course the kneeling of a football player during the anthem. When the players kneeled it was not a disrespect to those in service but to respect those who have fallen in vain in the name of the flag. They were suppose to have fought for freedom, equality, etc-like the soldiers during the civil war and ww2. Currently we are starting wars with other nations..it's not the other way around. We're not fighting the nazi and we're not fighting the confederates. So what I don't get is why is that just because you are in the military do you think that you are patriot? They're not fighting for anything worth mention to be proud of. Are they not mercenaries that used patriotism as an excuse in order to reap the rewards? Whats your take?

    The founding fathers are smart. They understood that people who aren't educated will be manipulated by the ones in charge at some point which is why they made a back-door loop just incase. I'm sure you guys know that an amendment is not a commandment. An amendment means that you're suppose to fix, update, and revitalize the parts that needs to be fixed. In this case for our country, an amendment can be changed or fixed for the people and BY the people when needed. Unlike the commandments found in the bible an amendment is not set in stone and revered as the absolute truth. SO WHY do you guys think that the 2nd amendment is a like a mandate from the heavens? Something is wrong here..and it needs to be fixed. It might be because of an outdated clause..you know what happens to an old pc when it tries to run new games? It's can't run it because its not up to date with the newest software and programs not to mention the recent graphic cards and predecessors needed. The times have changed...don't be afraid of change it's how people grow lol

These two states go on and on talking about God wanting Trump to win. Televangelists scamming gullible followers for their hard earned money while they stay in a comfy home. The theist would say things like, "god works in different ways" or whatever..maybe it's his/her way of saying "stop messing around and using my name to get rich you scums". I mean..what's worse? Blaming the homosexuals that the hurricanes happened or people using God's name in vain and as a result making "god" pissed?

    This goes back a month ago when we would get beverage bottles and randoms stuff thrown onto our property and against our walls. We think it might be our neighbor but we have no evidence so we will remain in doubt only. Fast forward at some point the harassing would die down after my parent went and talk to their parent even though their side denied anything and feigned ignorance. Nevertheless I thought an agreement was met between the two. Yesterday, there was a pile of junk left infront of our garage. Clothes and personal items. We weren't sure if we should take this case and top it with the harassment story so we separated the case. I think it might belong to a homeless person but still..infront of our garage? Thats rude. There are many place they could've left their belongings without being on anyone's property. So we thought to leave the stuff in a corner for a day and left a note giving a warning that it'll be taken care of if they don't come get it back by the next day. The non-emergency hotline told us to just throw it away but as you can see...our history with the harassment is ongoing and we don't want things to get worse. Do you think this is the right action? By giving the "so called" homeless person a day to retrieve their items?

    Compare by the country's age, by the land mass or territory conquered up to this date, is the country still the same country?(no merges ex. UK its combined with 4 countries), by it's prowess in finance and military. My answer is China because they're around 5,000 years since civilization. They were a major power then and a major power now. In the past with all the wars you'd expect the country to grow weaker and decline since they were conquered by the Golden Horde and the Manchu but the country didn't get smaller it got bigger. I think if it's not smaller its probably bigger than the U.S. What about you guys? Tell me what you think. Leave politics out of this. I don't care about you agendas.

    If you were to explain what heavens will was how would you explain this concept? I have my own from my culture - maybe yours is similar? I'll go ahead and give mine, please share yours. There is a saying. In order to be chosen by the heavens you must first obtain man. After man you obtain earth. With man and earth you attain Heaven. Man means that you must be chosen by people the mass. The reason or the movement that the majority supports you. Earth being the natural geographical advantages and resources that nature has to offer, wealth? When you have a good reason and the right resources to support your movement it would be heavens will that you follow through without fail. Now lets apply this concept to the American Independence. The colonists were small in numbers compared to the powerhouse naval fleets of England. Due to the unfair taxation ordered by England the colonist revolted and fought against England. With reason they had man to support their movement. With Earth they had the oceans to deter constant reinforcements by England plus they weren't familiar with American lands. This was heavens will as both man and earth was combined. Small in numbers and weapons they were but they still earned victory. NOW if some states does secede from a "country". Do the states have the hearts of man-not just from their neighbors but from others around the globe? Do the states have the wealth and a strong economy of earth? Wouldn't this be an imperial decree by the heavens?

    The President Elect made it his slogan that he's the only one that will not CUT medicare, medicaid, and social security. Out of all of the "lies" that he's given us it was this one that I agreed and hoped he would follow through on. Unlike other democrats, I admit defeat when I should-Trump will be our president and that's that. Still, he needs to make his promise come to fruition. Unfortunately, just like how he lied about building a wall but only built extensions, just like he lied about how he's not pro-establishment and yet he got the very people that worked for Goldman Sachs and George Soros to fill his cabinet. The very group that supported "Clinton" the so-called establishment tool. He's only been contradicting himself. I always knew that he was a scam and I'm not saying that Hillary is any better but....if he doesn't follow through with policies that actually is for the benefit of the people and instead throw many elders under the bus it's just unbecoming of us as Americans. Aren't we better than that? The most wealthy country in the world but we can't even afford make living easy for the people? If the opposition, the republicans knows what is right and what is wrong you guys need to point things out. This is not about democrats or republicans anymore...it's a fight between the wealthy and the poor. They are getting away with it and getting richer if Trump doesn't follow through on this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iEnMZV0...

    I think the three obvious answer to this question would be: money, love, entertainment. Usually these three are a mix and honestly if you have these three it would actually lead to a very satisfying life. But as of now...you know what I want in life? I want a 8-4 job, Monday through Friday with a pay that's enough to support a family and pay for bills..that's what I want. I think this is possible in some parts of Europe but certainly NOT in the U.S.A. Am I wrong to think that I want MORE time to spend with my family? For myself?! Am I wrong to think that the effort I put into my work field is more than they deserve? 45-50 hours?! What the heck is this? Aren't our country suppose to be one of THE MOST WEALTHIEST?! So why are we getting shitty pay and we have to WORK extra compared to other countries? A politician who spoke badly about global sourcing is actually a hypocrite because HE made deals with them. The only way that this can change is if YOU guys understand what is going on with our country. Guys, if you want to spend more time with your family, for your hobbies, and get a good or decent pay you need to take action. I don't think you're naive enough to give up your honed skills for a crappy job and pay rate, right? I don't think you're that dumb enough to use up what could've been your time to go to work instead of spending it on what you WANT to do, right? You need to send the right person to deal wit this stuff that NO OTHER has done. Who is that? Bernie Sanders.

As it stands now due to Mary not having any "power" to fight back financially, she is really getting the bad end of the stick and Yahweh is throwing as much dirt on her as possible. Countless accusations keep on coming just like how he did Satan. Back then Mary was able to see Jesus at least once a week for a few hours and now it's none not just that, she have to pay the priests hourly to take care of Jesus. This is twisted because Mary TOOK care of Jesus ever since he was born. When Yahweh came home from work he just play videogames. Any advice for Mary? Btw, can the family members of Mary visit Jesus? Is it against some court regulations?
