AHA! AT LAST, THE VOICE OF REALITY. SAY, UM, WHAT'S REAL THESE DAYS? DOES THE PHRASE, "WE THE PEOPLE," DESCRIBE PEOPLE OR BUSINESSES - SAY... HEALTHCARE? OF COURSE, THE CURRENT CONTENTION IS THAT BUSINESSES ARE PEOPLE TOO BUT THAT WON'T STAND, IT'S IDIOTIC.

IF THE "PEOPLE" OF A NATION ARE SUFFERING WANT OR ILL-HEALTH AND THE "BUSINESSES" OF A NATION DON'T WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE WELL-BEING OF "THE PEOPLE," THEN, LOGICALLY, THE DOCUMENT SHOULD BE AMENDED TO READ, "WE, SOME OF THE PEOPLE," OR, "WE, A FEW OF THE PEOPLE," SHOULD IT NOT?

That's the problem with people who carry. Esp. those who fancy themselves as cop wannabes. There are valid reasons to carry a gun, but it's often the weak and outcast types who end up going on killing sprees, the mass murders of recent years lending proof to that.

These types are outcasts, friendless, self loathing folks just like Nobraina or Dweeb. They should never be allowed near guns. They shouldn't be allowed near water without supervision, either.

As you say, he's pretty much thrown his life in the shitter. But a world where a guy with a gun follows someone and they get in a confrontation, and when he finds himself on the losing side, he kills the person he was stalking?? There's something wrong with this picture. But it is Florida.

I'm not standing up for the shooter, he was a weak member of society dependent on mood drugs and just bouncing around in life.
Still there is no reliable information or evidence regarding how the incident played out beyond what comes from the shooter himself and a jury in conservative Seminole County will be unpredictable. Never the less, if excused, Zimmerman will be hounded by civil actions for years and the case will serve as a message to others who assume that a ccw permit is the same thing as a badge.

Your whole schtick is making foolish comments based on others posts, and you ask me why I like to remind Flake how completely wrong he's been for several years concerning the economy?? Very recently, he was predicting a big setback for the economy. Now we're hitting all time highs and you nitwits are going to hear about it!!

It's not looking for a fight, because Flake never responds to his dumb calls. Homer catches him all the time.

I'm not allowed to crow a bit when you nitwits are all proven wrong about the strength of the economy, inspite of your sides attempts to stall it? In your freakin' dreams!!

Ya got a lot of gall, being a smartass yourself.

"When is the Rapture going to occur in relation to the Tribulation?"

Answer: The timing of the rapture in relation to the tribulation is one of the most controversial issues in the church today. The three primary views are pre-tribulational (the rapture occurs before the tribulation), mid-tribulational (the rapture occurs at or near the mid-point of the tribulation), and post-tribulational (the rapture occurs at the end of the tribulation). A fourth view, commonly known as pre-wrath, is a slight modification of the mid-tribulational position.

First, it is important to recognize the purpose of the tribulation. According to Daniel 9:27, there is a seventieth “seven”(seven years) that is still yet to come. Daniel’s entire prophecy of the seventy sevens (Daniel 9:20-27) is speaking of the nation of Israel. It is a time period in which God focuses His attention especially on Israel. The seventieth seven, the tribulation, must also be a time when God deals specifically with Israel. While this does not necessarily indicate that the church could not also be present, it does bring into question why the church would need to be on the earth during that time.

The primary Scripture passage on the rapture is 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. It states that all living believers, along with all believers who have died, will meet the Lord Jesus in the air and will be with Him forever. The rapture is God’s removing His people from the earth. A few verses later, in 1 Thessalonians 5:9, Paul says,“For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The book of Revelation, which deals primarily with the time period of the tribulation, is a prophetic message of how God will pour out His wrath upon the earth during the tribulation. It seems inconsistent for God to promise believers that they will not suffer wrath and then leave them on the earth to suffer through the wrath of the tribulation. The fact that God promises to deliver Christians from wrath shortly after promising to remove His people from the earth seems to link those two events together.

Another crucial passage on the timing of the rapture is Revelation 3:10, in which Christ promises to deliver believers from the “hour of trial” that is going to come upon the earth. This could mean two things. Either Christ will protect believers in the midst of the trials, or He will deliver believers out of the trials. Both are valid meanings of the Greek word translated “from.” However, it is important to recognize what believers are promised to be kept from. It is not just the trial, but the “hour” of trial. Christ is promising to keep believers from the very time period that contains the trials, namely the tribulation. The purpose of the tribulation, the purpose of the rapture, the meaning of 1 Thessalonians 5:9, and the interpretation of Revelation 3:10 all give clear support to the pre-tribulational position. If the Bible is interpreted literally and consistently, the pre-tribulational position is the most biblically-based interpretation.

That's why Chris Wallace did a long interview with them for FAUX and they were invited to speak at CPAC, right??

Nice try, but you fell short, as usual.
