    I can understand that position as well and don't have problem with DP requiring evidence that is 100% guilty of the crime the person was arrested for.
    As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes."
    When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics."
    When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty

    Thank you ... it seemed appropriate consider the current social and political environment in which we are living.

    Yes. I don't believe someone should be executed on circumstantial evidence, and we should be 100% positive before taking someone's life. So I'm in agreement with you totally.

    I'm with your wife, though I oppose the DP on other grounds as well. A moderate, politically. I've been a Christian for a good while now, but I spent most of three decades in the other camp. I had a carry license once, but let it go.

    Hope you find the old girl (TOL) an interesting way to pass a little time. I'm not sure what's going on now and what the life of any board is with the advent and ascension of Twitter and FB. I got here in 07 and things were roaring. Stayed that way for a few years, but trends have been slowing forum life for the last few years.

    Here's how it was...for the first several years I was on TOL you wouldn't believe how many disparate and interesting, funny, considered voices we had among the yahoos and odd mix-in of trolls or people looking for a fight. It was a wild west show of sorts. Great deal of fun. Knight, the founder, would host a yearly awards show and pick and link to some of the best threads/posts, hand out accolades and choose a few posters for our Hall of Fame. It had a real sense of depth of community. Once a year we had a fund drive. Once a year we had a week to be on our best behavior with one another. A very familial feel to the place.

    A few years back that began to peel away. We started losing membership and activity, moved a few times into different digs that limited options. Once upon a time you could dress up your profile page and some, yours truly included, made it a creative and ongoing point of interest. Then it was easy to have friends across a range of differences easily enough, because there were men and women of good will in just about every camp and the camps were filled.

    It's a shadow of that now. Most of the bells and whistles have gone. Knight is rarely a presence. Many of the old guard moved on and the troll ratio skewed dramatically toward the loud and angry. But if you're patient and for whatever time is left, there are friends to be met and conversations to be had.

    Welcome.
    You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.

    Hi James. That's a lot of stuff you listed there. How about salvation? Are you saved?
    2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    Paul defines the word of truth as the gospel of your salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV, Ephesians 1:13 KJV). Now, study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed by rightly dividing it!

    I'm a big fan of Bad Lip Reading. They did a good job on GoT and Walking Dead. You should see it.
