Blessings for Obedience
28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. 2 All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:
3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
4 The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
5 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.
6 You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
7 The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.
8 The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. 11 The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.
12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
__________
Heavenly Father, I realize that I need Jesus Christ in my life. Thank You that You love me and accept me the way I am, right now. Although you hate and despise sin, You love sinners so much that You sent Your only Son, Jesus, to pay the price that I owed. God, The Bible says that all men have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. I know that in my own life I have fallen way short of Your plan for me. Although the wages of sin are death, I receive salvation and eternal life as a free gift from you. I can do nothing to earn it.
I confess that I am a sinner, but I want to turn from serving myself, sin and the Devil. So I turn to you Jesus.
God, Your Word says that whoever will call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ will be saved. I call on Jesus’ name right now. I say out loud with my mouth that Jesus is my Lord and I believe in my heart that God, You raised Him from the dead. I accept Your forgiveness and cleansing from all my sin. I receive the free gift of eternal life right now. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust You Jesus, as Savior and follow You as Lord.
I am no longer a child of the devil, but now I am a child of God. Help me to understand that I am saved because of faith, not because of any good deeds or emotions. I have been made a new person because of Your Son, Jesus.
I thank You that You are now my Father. I thank You for this free gift of eternal life. I thank You that my sin and iniquities You will remember no more, and You have removed my sins as far as the East is from the West. I am a new creature (creation) in Christ Jesus. Old things are passed away. I have been born of the incorruptible seed of the word of God. I have been delivered from the power of darkness. I no longer have to walk in darkness; I can now walk in the light.
Father, thank You again for sending Jesus as my Savoir, and making me born again of the Spirit of God and washed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

This anecdote from Zev Chafets’ profile of Fox News chief Roger Ailes, makes me love the guy:

Ailes admits that he sometimes flies off the handle. This can happen pretty much anywhere. Not long ago, on a ball field near his place in Garrison, NY, his nephew accidentally hit a baseball through the window of a 2012 Prius parked in a church lot. The owners were Koreans who didn’t speak much English, and they were extremely agitated.“It’s just a damn window,” Ailes told them.“I’ll pay for the damn thing.”

The owner was indignant.“We pray, you curse,” he said.

“Fine,” said Ailes.“Then let’s pray over the fu**ing window. Maybe that’ll fix it.”

“It was a 10-minute incident that I turned into an hour,” Ailes said when he told me the story.“Hell, it’s lucky they didn’t recognize me. It could have turned into a go*damn international scandal. But I told them I was sorry ” He laughed.“Damn it, though, I was kind of glad that it was a Prius.”

Ailes may be an SOB, but he’s a hell of a character. Liberal or conservative, crazy or sane, I love characters. Remember, my secular patron saint is Ignatius J. Reilly. I bet Roger Ailes has a spectacular valve.

More likely is the fact that the attorneys figured out that Zimmerman is an idiot who was a murder waiting to happen, they know he's mentally unstable and guilty.
So they quit the case to avoid embarrassment.
Either you're dumber than usual today, or you just like not making sense.
Or, the defendant has run out of money; money received from contributions to a killer. He's getting pretty big and fat, as is his wife. I hope they find him guilty before he kills someone else.

Republicans downplay poll indicating public support for gun control; Democrats claim vindication

HARTFORD — State House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero, R-Norwalk, Wednesday downplayed the importance of a Quinnipiac Poll that showed overwhelming public support for gun control measures, including an expanded ban on assault weapons and a limit on high capacity magazines.

The Republicans on a bipartisan task force working group on gun control released Tuesday did not sign off on an expansion of the assault weapons ban and limiting magazines to 10 bullets, which is something their Democratic colleagues endorsed.

Cafero asked if the poll told respondents what the current assault weapons ban includes.

“I kind of doubt it. A lot of people don’t realize that we are only one of four states that currently has one. If you don’t know what you are expanding, how do you properly answer the question?” Cafero said.

Douglas Schwartz, director of the Quinnipiac Poll, said polls can’t go into that kind of detail on the phone as it gets too long, but the question clearly referenced an expansion.

He said mentioning that one of the weapons that would be added to the list – the AR-15 Bushmaster – the firearm used by Adam Lanza to kill 20 children and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook School on Dec. 14 - would have been prejudicial.

“I stand by our question. The wording I think is an accurate gage of how people feel about it,” Schwartz said.

Democrats said the poll vindicates their positions.

State Senate President Pro Tem Don Williams, D-Brooklyn, said it shows that the public is on their side and a bill incorporating major changes should happen sooner rather later.

He called the assault weapons ban and limit on magazines “the basic building blocks of any comprehensive bill that addresses the tragedy in Newtown.

Waterboarding - torture.
Drones and hoping the right person/s is targeted - justifiable.
Both torture and indiscriminate killing of civilians, are intolerable. For that matter, so is employing the use of digital imaging and nano-technology, against citizens of a free country. And yes, water-boarding is torture, Carol. If you don't think so, I'll be happy to prove it to you...with your permission, of course.

Really??

So take a stab at explaining the differences.

According to Paul Ryan's budget, restructuring SS is defined as reducing benefits. DUH

Better yet, they could create jobs for Mitt and Ann Rmoney by hiring them to do domestic chores around the WH!!

Mitt hasn't had a job, outside of running for President, for the past decade!!

The American people would love to see them do some honest work and not live off their Cayman Islands wealth!!

I don't think so, I do live in the area after all and know some of these people and most of the news people in the area due to my wife's 40 year plus association with professional women in journalism.

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.

You do realize that there are ground based cameras everywhere.

If there is a threat from drones, its not from the government. It will from people trying to steal information, case your home for burglary, take pics, or just spy for fun.

So tell me again why the government doesn't just shoot missiles at us from helicopters or just mini-scud but will from drones?
