i legitimately see no downsides to taking guns away from civilians like please someone argue with me about this because all that can possibly come from fierce gun control laws are positive things
“those who forget history are doomed to repeat it”
If an invading Army or abusive government doesn’t convince you, please, think about having guns for personal protection against a home intruder or rapist.
Boy, that would lead me to believe that we should have as few partners as possible and maybe we should be cautious about who we date?
Maybe dating a handful of men isn’t a good idea? Maybe you should pray that God shows you one good one that you should spend the rest of your life with?
Or maybe we should stop being so freaking sexist and realize that there are evil people of both genders in the world??
That would work. Sounds like we all need God to give us His goodness and protect us from those that would do evil to us. Sounds like it’s pretty hopeless without Him.
I completely agree with the sentiment, but it’s a simple fact that a lot of the time, men have more power in any given situation (either because of a male-based social structure or just in terms of physical strength) and so there is far more danger from “evil” people who are male. Objectively, men are no worse than women, but in practice men pose much more of a threat because they generally have more power to abuse.
Evil is all around, and whiny cries for social reform won’t do anything about it. Signs in front of bathroom mirrors and a million tumblr posts won’t do anything about the rotten core inside each one of us. It’s a bandaid on a full-body 3rd degree burn. The disease is in all our hearts and only Jesus can both protect and cleanse.
That’s the awesome part about Christianity. We have the opportunity to be new creations. To get back to God’s original intention for goodness. For honor, respect, masculinity, femininity. It can’t be done without Him.
So wait. Wait. Wait. You think, that rather than try to do something ourselves, we should wait for Jesus to fix all of our problems? That seems like the easy way out. Like you can’t handle this problem. Jesus lived and died. You don’t have to believe he is the son of God to recognize his teachings as good. His teachings don’t say “I will fix everything for you”. They try to equip you to fix things yourself.
That’s not quite what he’s saying. (btw, Jesus lived, died, and rose again)
What he’s saying is that every human being is sinful, but through God’s mercy in sending Jesus as the perfect atonement sacrifice, we all have a chance at redemption. Society is seriously messed up, but if we returned to teaching Christian values, there would be a marked improvement in society in general.
You could be Atheist, Buddhist, Islamic, or Jewish, and God would love you just as much as He loves every Christian – in God’s love, we are all equal! Once humanity realizes that (though it will never happen 100% until the second coming), everyone will be better equipped to get along.
What that means is those who believe, those who know God’s love, have a duty to share it with others. God has sanctioned Christianity with the task of spreading His love and Gospel throughout the world – exactly the opposite of what you interpreted from the discussion. Is it not wonderful!
Feel free to send me or peterdwebb any questions you may have.
found this on facebook just now. it reminded me of how people think ‘oh we must make it equal, with straight prides and men’s rights’. no. we need justice. not equality.
this needs more notes k
This is absolutely perfect.
summing it up in ways that even junior high boys can understand
This is the most perfect amazing perfect amazing PERFECT AMAZING POWERPOINT ON TUMBLR.
I still believe this is the best power point on tumblr.
This is pretty much perfect.
Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.
This was written by a 21 yr. old female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.
This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX
PUT ME IN CHARGE …
Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.
Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.
Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.
In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good.”
Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.
If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.
I love this one.
AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
