    I'm not a Christian, but that translation is only one I've seen. Another is thou shalt not murder.

     

    Not a Christian, but if it's necessary to avoid serious injury or death, killing is OK with me. How about you? If someone is about to kill you, would defending yourself be OK or are you against self defense?

    Does that include a port tacker , if your on stbd?

    Does it apply to hands and feet?  Baseball bats and Hammers?  Because both of those types of tools each individually are used to kill more Americans than Assault rifles.  Just saying.

    guns are still by far the # 1& 2  of killings 

    See this chart: • Homicides by murder weapon in the U.S. 2019 | Statista

    from a Reuters article: Guns are the most commonly used weapons in both murders and suicides, according to the analysis of data from 2007 released on Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    these are just a few of many studies on Gun deaths,

    Going back to the 10 commandments , I don't remember any sub Paragraphs of good and bad killings, 

    We are the most heavy arm country in the world and therefore have the most deaths by guns,

    Guns have one single purpose TO KILL ,

    As a Vietnam Vet , been there , never gone a t-shirt

    My whole point is if your a Christian , how can you justify owning or using a gun to kill, people? 


  3. What happen to the good old days when you just gave your fellow driver the finger? Thank the NRA

    Christopher Michael Maassen died as a result of a shooting that happened on Feb 19th around 1:45pm on NB I95 at Donald Ross Rd. We know there was an altercation between two adult males.

    Lindsey is a little wacky IMHO..  Ever see a documentary on her??  Her skiing accomplishments are unparalleled, but her personal shit caught up to her in her last olympics.  She is doing ski commentary now which is good.  She was never a looker IMHO.  Now Shiffron otoh........  I digress

    She's being paid by the people on NYC, not the people of Texas.

    Wrong

    U.S. Senate: Congressional Pay

    Who pays the salaries of the House of Representatives and Senate?
    Article I, Section 6 states, “The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States.”

    Looks like he lives in a pretty crappy house for that kind of subsidy. Does he have other domiciles?

    The Constitution says nothing about "Federal laws." Why would it?

    Including a photo of the Constitution is a nice touch, but it has nothing to do with your idea that a Representative in The Bronx represents people in Texas. And in order to demonstrate that concept, here is a photo of some women playing dominoes ...

     

     

    Which one of the old women is you?

    lets see TC has been in office 4 times longer then AOC, what has he done, 

    I guess as his district is all oil companies , they done great by him, with government $$$$$$$$$$'s ,You can house and feed the homeless                                                                             In fact, the Oil & Gas Industry receives more than $17 Billion in Subsidies per year, and according to our new analysis ExxonMobil likely gets as much as $1 billion of that. and how much campaign money did cruz get from that?

     

    Ted Cruz received more money from oil and gas companies in 2018 than any other senator

     

    The senator received nearly $800,000 from the industry in 2018

    Where did you get this?

    She's represents Queens and The Bronx, New York 14, I believe. In what way does she represent "all of the USA"? Her job is defined by Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution, and the limit of her representation is what is specifically enabled within, per the Tenth Amendment. So do tell, what law or or Court decision defines her Representation as "all of the USA"?

    It's not that I doubt you, but yeah, I doubt you.

    She and other representatives are responsible for making up laws that effect the whole United States , not just his or her district, 

    so she doesn't make laws for NYC or NY state but the entire country,

    We the People of the United States…

    As per the Constitution, the U.S. House of Representatives makes and passes federal laws. The House is one of Congress’s two chambers (the other is the U.S. Senate), and part of the federal government’s legislative branch. The number of voting representatives in the House is fixed by law at no more than 435, proportionally representing the population of the 50 states.

    I get that her intention may be good, but there are homeless people in NY State who need her help and would love to have half of what the people of Texas have ... they often don't even have shelter, let alone heat and water. Since COVID started, and their access to bathrooms has been taken away, many of them have been living an undiluted version of the people in Texas for coming up on a year now.

    Her focus should be on NY, not TX.

     

    maybe Ted will take the hint and help NYER'S , Oh he can't help a Blue state, I think that's more the point, 

    She is a U.S. Representative for all of the USA , 

    I guess Ted didn't take the same oath.


  10. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Doing Ted Cruz’s Job To Provide Texas Storm Aid

    The New York congresswoman helped raise $2 million in relief for Texans and is heading to the state to dispense supplies after the GOP senator went to Cancun.

    Thats great.  Maybe some day she can actually do something for the people she actually represents in her own district instead of nationally
    showboating everywhere else as a pawn for her string pullers. 

     

    at least she wasn't in Cancun , with the cunt cruz


  12. 'Don't let him back in': backlash as Cruz caught leaving Texas for , Where trumps wall when you really need it, GO back to Cuba 

    Cruz also drew the ire from Beto O’Rourke, who has spent the last few days connecting residents to local resources and calling thousands of seniors to make sure they are warm. “[Cruz] is vacationing in Cancun right now when people are literally freezing to death in the state that he was elected to represent and serve,” the former congressman and presidential hopeful said on MSNBC Thursday.


  13. Ted Cruz jetting off to Mexico while Texans remain dying in the cold isn’t surprising, but it is deeply disturbing and disappointing,” party chair Gilberto Hinojosa said in a statement on Thursday. “Cruz is emblematic of what the Texas Republican Party and its leaders have become: weak, corrupt, inept and self-serving politicians who don’t give a damn about the people they were elected to represent. They were elected by the people but have no interest or intent of doing their jobs.”


  14. more Ted news

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been accused of traveling to Cancun, Mexico, amid the ongoing crisis in Texas, where millions have been left without power or heat in freezing temperatures.

  15. The lack of power to about a quarter of the state has created a widespread emergency, with families huddling in homes or cars without heat, burst water pipes, failing water systems and gasoline shortages

    Republican Rick Perry, a former Texas governor and energy secretary, suggested in a recent blog post on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s website that Texans should be more than willing to endure blackouts to keep the federal government from regulating the state’s power grid. 

    I wonder if he has heat?
