…the campaign of the scientific establishment to rule out intelligent design as beyond discussion because it is not science results in the avoidance of significant questions about the relation between evolutionary theory and religious belief, questions that must be faced in order to understand the theory and evaluate the scientific evidence for it. The Tramp Abroad Suggests You Consider The Views Of Some A-10 Pilots The first pilot makes his case in a personal communication: Comments on ISIS: Hell, we will never learn from our mistakes when you have assholes trying to run the government that want to be calling all the shots on the battlefield. “Harry” says – Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.

That, coupled with the elimination of “gun-free zones”, would change the environment that currently works to the advantage of bloodthirsty lunatics. (See Gingrich’s view on this.) The grim truth is that soft targets invite mass murder. People deserve at least the opportunity to shoot back, even if that leads to wild gunfights in public places. That’s a horrible scenario, and unfortunately, it is not fantastic. When contemplating reality, consider the possibilities unemotionally. For example: do you believe...
