Do you give police the benefit of the doubt when miscondu...

Police are innocent until proven guilty in the same way any citizen is. Thus the accusation of misconduct should be investigated in the same manner. The scales of justice are not meant to be even... they are meant to be tilted in favor of the accused. I do believe, however, the investigations should be handled by an outside agency. That any in house disciplining should be public knowledge since it is the public that employs them. If we want to see a real change we should encourage the use of private security. The cost of government run law enforcement is quite high, the pay for officers low, not equipped to prevent crime but gather evidence to prosecute it once it has already happen, with awful response times. A private agency or network of private agencies could do what public law enforcement does much cheaper and with a much better response time. Those who choose not to pay a monthly fee could pay based on need much like an ambulance service. Private enforcement provides more accountability, is cheaper, better equipped to handle private matters, and provides more liberty for the citizenry. The officer would also be paid more and misconduct would be less because they would be directly accountable to their employers. The fault in government run law enforcement isn't with your patrolman alone it is also with the system, the administrators, and legislators. The patrolman will only do what he thinks he will be justified in doing. The practice of violating the constitution is so prevalent, and ignored by administrators, the officer likely with true sincerity thinks he/she is just doing his/her job. The people can be responsible for their own safety, conduct investigations, and sue just like the government can, and do it cheaper. It is grand that they are willing to put their life on the line to protect others, and I commend them for it. The fault is in the system they are willing to enforce.  (Feb 26, 2014 | post #4)

Would you support Marijuana being regulated like Alcohol?

This study was also conducted by the Fed and rescinded by both the US and Australian Governments who paid for the study after the public found out that the results once again were "accelerated " and "exaggerated ". http://www.health. gov.au/internet/ma in/publishing.nsf/ Content/health-pub s-drug-cannab2-exe cutive.htm  (Feb 17, 2014 | post #14)

Do you know who funds this research program? The United States federal-government. Read about Ricaurte's monkey's.  (Feb 17, 2014 | post #11)

Well you came here with questions and you either want to believe or you don't, that is why you are asking questions. The best advice I can give you is to read the Bible, with your main focus being on love. I will say this though the only part that was by word of mouth is technically Genesis, the rest were written by personal accounts. If you read the book of Matthew, he was there he was a disciple, the book of Mark was written from his retelling of the accounts he heard from Matthew and he likely saw these things take place as a small boy.The books Paul wrote are letters he sent with Timothy spreading the Gospel. Peter wrote the book of Peter. Psalms, were written by Moses, Hezekiah, and King David. The book of Proverbs is by King Solomon. Nearly every book with the exception of Genesis is a personal account, Moses wrote all 5 books of the Torah, but the last 4 are his personal accounts. Today if you were to read the personal accounts of about 35+/- people you would no doubt believe that whatever happened....happen ed. The Bible is no different, these are the personal accounts of 35+/- people. People who saw lived and believed, I'm not telling you to jump on the band wagon I'm just saying that if you base your belief/disbelief in someones "story" based on only 1 part or "argument " while there are 35 more would that really be the wise choice? Like I said before the best way to understand it is to read it. That is if you want to believe, if you don't then so be it, that's your choice. ( I mean I don't believe 9/11 was a terrorist attack, that N. Vietnam fired the first shot, that we landed on the moon, or that Edward Snowden is a traitor) Don't just believe or disbelieve in something because you feel pressured to. Believe or disbelieve because you want to.  (Feb 16, 2014 | post #24)

Well there is no before the beginning you see time is something that God created and so you have to be able to get around the fact that there is nothing before the beginning, hence the word beginning. Just like the end if something happened after the end it wouldn't be the end it would be the middle or near the end, but not the end.. So there may be a near the beginning or a close to the beginning, but there is no before the beginning that is why its called the beginning. A side note. I understand that it is easy to get hung up on the details of creation, what and how, and thats not a bad thing, however, it is important to read on, and get an understanding of why more so than how. While creation is an important story it is more of a lesson in why things are and how they became. For humanity our beginning is important, why we are the way we are. The question "What is the meaning of life?" is one asked more often and more importantly than "How is the meaning of life?" because it first asks us about something we can perceive. Meaning is relative to an individual and the New Testament would tell us the meaning is love. I encourage you to ask yourself why would Humanity need to keep track of God before Humanity? If God is the father and we are his children would the children set the limits for their father or would the father set limits for his children? The beginning is our limit the end our curfew. Faith is something that requires belief. You are right, the stories in the part of the Bible known as the Torah were oral traditions passed down through generations, the beauty is though that God was there the entire time, he was helping the story pass on, and while I do believe some may have been skewed by man, I believe God preserved enough of the story to get the point across. Many of the stories of the Bible have also been left out of the versions we are likely to see. There is a book of Mary and Jesus, but they are not included in the Bible. Many other books were left out by the Catholic church because of redundancy. The book has been touched by man, but God has been there as well. I think you can look at it in 2 ways possibly the book is perfect being motioned by God throughout generations, or possibly God wants us to put the effort into discovering as much of the truth as possible through our Faith and works in Him. Who knows, I do believe the most important thing is Love. If we concentrate on that and read the entire Bible with the intent to better others and ourselves I think you we will find the answers we are looking for.  (Feb 15, 2014 | post #22)

Police using extreme force!

He brought it on himself? Thy should have used tazers? Yea those are answers and solutions! Instead of beating the poor guy with a stick lets send 50,000 volts through the guys a few times. Not to worry we use 2000 volts on guys in the electric chair so long as its not continuous he'll be fine!!!! Gotta be kiddin me. The statement you made is how 90% of America thinks and it scares me. I cannot believe that the herd mentality is so strong. If you are getting beaten by guys in costumes don't worry I'll be the first to ask them to electrocute you instead. Violence is violence it doesn't matter where it comes from, now by no means am I a pacifist. I've been there in a costume giving the beatings, some on principle alone, but that doesn't make it right. As a servant of the law you should be held to the standards of Cesar's wife. This is why we need to move towards privatized security, if those officers were being paid directly by the friends and family of that citizen, I guarantee you, they would have handled that differently. A system where there are too many hurdles forces us to walk around them rather than facing them head on.  (Feb 13, 2014 | post #3)

Well before he ate the apple I don't think there was right and wrong. Before they ate the apple there was no wrong from my understanding.  (Feb 13, 2014 | post #7)

No problem, but I think you misinterpreted what I said or I didn't pass it on clearly. "God existed before creation without the past, present, or future...simply existed" -This statement was intended to be a reiteration of this statement- "think of God as forever in the present having no past before creation thus "the beginning" was when God created the Universe, the Earth, and time." The past ends at the beginning. There can be nothing before the beginning or it wouldn't be the beginning, if we went to the end and started we wouldn't be ending. Anyway I asked the same questions, Ken Hamm has an interesting piece about it you can read here: http://www.answers ingenesis.org/arti cles/am/v7/n4/befo re-creation  (Feb 12, 2014 | post #4)

Time is relative even through perception of what has "past" so taking that as an example think of God as forever in the present having no past before creation thus "the beginning" was when was when God created the Universe, the Earth, and time. The mind is meant to struggle with this time is an odd perception in which it is truly relative to each thing or situation. When moving you are experiencing time travel in comparison to something standing still. If you play the slots 1000 times your chances of winning never change. We have certain programming that forces us to use singular objects to compare to other objects which allows us processes that are used to comfort us. With time there is only time. God existed before creation without the past, present, or future...simply existed. Well I hope that helps. I'm no theologian but that is my understanding.  (Feb 12, 2014 | post #2)
