but peace is a lot different than being a radical. The last thing we need is more radical people. Thou shalt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.
in the world, you will always have trouble. but don't worry about it so much.
the mystery that exists is one on a different dimension.
I've remained silent while awaiting the verdict, but now that the jury has returned with what I agree is the appropriate sentence, I'll put in my two cents worth, while trying to avoid turning this forum into my personal pulpit. The defendant, now convict, was afforded a multi- attorney defense team at taxpayer expense, as well as the right to a speedy trial. It is my modest opinion that we, as taxpayers, and the family of the murdered child should be afforded the right to a speedy execution of the guilty. The appeals process for death row inmates should be streamlined in cases like this one, where there is no doubt as to the culpability of the convicted. There is no possibility that 10 or 20 years from now, DNA or retracted testimony will exonerate him. Blue Collar comedian Ron White once claimed that Texas has an express lane for death row inmates, and Delacruz should be in it.
To actually try to take our guns is something entirely different than legislature about round capacity and banning semi auto rifles... Both of which are violations of the second amendment if you ask millions of Americans. I'd venture to say that it would cause a civil war if the second amendment was to be repealed or in some other way to be made invalid... Doubt the government wants that on their hands... then they can't tax us so on and so forth. We have an inalienable right to defend ourselves given to us by God protected by our government, once they go rogue and try to take that freedom, millions will fight for it, that's partially the intent of having the 2nd amendment in the first place because it wouldn't be the first time Americans had to fight a tyrannical government.
Ignorance and apathy alongside the removal of God from government and school has put us in this position and just because the majority of people think one way doesn't mean they're right. Like I said in another post, we've killed 44.5 million babies in America legally and the majority of folks just say, "hey, it's a woman's right, I won't say anything about it because it's a tough subject." Nobody bats an eye... Matter of fact, people will openly and blatantly oppose the idea that it is murder. Nobody would say the same thing about Hitler killing 6 million Jews. To deny that aborting a baby is "killing" a baby is just a claw at coping with the idea. I'm not sure how it became so easy to justify for millions but it's sad. I would venture to say that a majority of the abortions performed are not due to extenuating circumstances, I would be willing to bet that no matter how it's justified, selfishness is the number one reason... Women have considered how a baby coming into the world would be inconvenient in their lives and so forth... If you're not ready then you need to abstain from sex.
I also know of circumstances where women who were raped, birthed and raised the child that came out of the experience because of God's grace so I'm not sure where women get the idea that rape is an excuse to take an innocent life either. Hey, at least in Texas you have the right to go and arm yourself against such threats, I would never blame a rape on the woman, that's just crazy but like I've told many folks, these are the reasons we have the right to defend ourselves... Don't think it won't happen to you and negate training yourself up to prepare for an attack. Many tragedies could be avoided if we lived by honoring God and his commands. God's word is our yardstick to measure the world against and has instructions on how to live... God never said that we had to be victims... We need to quit following the majority who say that we can all live how we want to live and no one has a right to say anything about it... How about our Creator? When is His word about our lifestyle going to matter in the public eye once again?
in Jury Sends Naiya Villegas's Killer Isidro Delacruz Straight to Death Row
Kudos to the Jury! A tough decision when actually faced with it. You did your job and too bad it will take years to actually carry out the sentence....if it is carried out. There should be a time limit on appeals and wasting tax payer money when a jury has already found him guilty unanimously. Indigents are costing the States way too much money on courts, healthcare and welfare. People and families should be held more accountable and responsible for their own actions, conditions and situations. Here is a prime example! They would have put a dog down if it had killed this child. So be it for a human.
He says, why didn't you just use the emergency dismount.

“I like taking the guns early,” Trump said during a televised meeting on gun laws at the White House on Wednesday. “To go to court would have taken a long time.”
I like that you have in depth insight. Granted, maybe everyone doesn't necessarily agree all the time, but you have to start from somewhere. A foundation to a building is a great place to start construction. I had always pondered where it said in the bible, don't remove historic landmarks.
I have had to think or ponder a lot of things to understand what they mean. I think it means, don't try to learn the same lessons the former generations did. They put that landmark there for your safety. It is like traveling down a road with a lot of prickly cactus or thorns with a lot of dangers. No wonder they call it a narrow path. When I used to ride my white appaloosa horse that was out of the bloodlines of the stallion my uncle had started out with,
I used to say, she was always seeing the boogey man. She would bawk and squander and take off running sideways with me and alls I could do was hang on to the saddlehorn. She almost got me in real trouble once when I pulled back on the reins and snaffle bit broke in half. I was riding a runaway. I couldn't get ahold of her because she ducked her head and started running wide open. I held onto her mane, and started learning her rhythm. I thought about jumping off but going that fast, the ground looked hard as a rock. She came up to a hill and I thought she would stop or slow down. To my surprise she did not. We hit that small hill wide open. I crunched down, grabbed hold, and closed my eyes. We went up into the air, but she was sure footed and came down on all four. The whole thing stoppped right out in the middle of the road and I slid off the side. With one piece of reins still in my hand , I wrapped it around her neck. There was a car stopped there, observing the whole dilemna, and I still don't know who it was. I took a look at her, and her eyes were big, nostrils big, covered in sweat and I could hear her tendons popping. I said, woe gal, you are a little bit too high strung. Amazingly, neither one of us were hurt.
Today's justice system has it's roots in the Bible, the Pilgrims came over from England in horrible conditions to escape the persecution of the church of England. In 1620, the Mayflower compact was signed by the folks on the voyage, it was a set of rules for self governance that they created to quell a rebellion from it's own midst that said they would live in accordance of the Christian faith, create one society and work to further it and create laws for the colony and abide by those laws... It was the inspiration for what we now have as our Declaration of Independance and our Bill of Rights shortly after... The founding fathers of our great nation were men who believed in God and set up laws based upon Christian principles... Slowly we have allowed their intentions and meanings to become distorted and taken out of context... The version of "American history" in today's culture confuses religious tolerance with pluralism and the leveling of all religions... The founders wrote the first amendment to to protect the church, it was meant to keep the federal government from declaring a national religion... While our founders would have not persecuted those with no religion or a different one, they would have "tolerated" them without making concessions for them in the Christian faith and daily life. This country has it's foundation laid upon the God of the Bible and that's that, nothing can change the truth, we were never meant to allow every religion to be considered equal because they're not, there is only one mediator between God and man and that is Jesus Christ who loved us while we were yet sinners and died on a cross to save us from the death we deserve... I don't think we should persecute other religions or those of no faith either but as Americans it isn't for them to be considered equal and have the same amount of reverence due just because they exist. Tolerated? Ok, you as an American can be whatever faith you want but I won't let you step on my freedoms and claim to be equal.
Without these founding principles coming from the Bible, we wouldn't have the justice system you see today, if you think that it's imperfect go to Brazil for a couple of weeks or maybe El Salvador and then tell me how much it stinks that we have to "foot the bill" for punishing criminals like Delacruz.
where he'll sit getting fat on taxpayer money for two decades before we finally decide to put him down.

I figured life in prison. A verdict of death will just mean this case will be tied up in appeals forever and a day. Just throw him in prison and be done with it...
In 10 years maybe? Not sure but lufe in jsil he would be dead in a year? Child killers dont last long? So now he gets to sit and wait and live little longer or maybe he will snap in jail?
Andres Ramirez is next! Justice for my daughter Camille Garcia! And all women who cowards like him hurt and kill!
Today's correctional system is the fruit and model of the primitive idea of barter -- the idea that everything has an equivilant and can be paid for. With this fallacious notion, a community's outcry for justice is pacified with the promise, that though the murderer continues to walk the same Earth and breathe the same air as ourselves, that our judicial system has surely slapped a reasonable price tag on his actions, and he'll be 'paying his debt to society' from the confines of prison walls.
We're asked to accept a uniform method of atonement by a person who is more than likely only sorry he was caught, rather than sorry he committed his transgressions. In the end we have an overestimation of the value of the criminal's life, and a gross underestimation of the value of the victim's.
Isidro will be fed, sheltered and given free medical care. Though limited, he'll have recreational activities and a reasonable expectation of security and protection from harm. When his day arrives, he'll be allowed to say his goodbyes to family members, given a meal of his choice and a forum to express his thoughts before a sterilized needle is introduced into his arm.
This, apparently is the price tag on the life of 5 year old Naiya.
Isirdo saw himself above and beyond the petty confines of moral thought, in consideration to his treatment of Naiya. With this in mind, an absence of "morality", too, should be exercised while considering and carrying out his disposal.
A morally bankrupt criminal never truly repays their debts to society. They simply take out loans while the state hands us the bill.
