September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

S.D. SCHOOLS GET ARMORED VEHICLE FOR EMERGENCIES

 San Diego

City schools police have obtained their own military-grade Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle through a federal grant.

Known as an MRAP, the armored vehicle will be converted into a victim rescue vehicle that will be stocked with thousands of dollars in advanced medical supplies and be able to take heavy fire in case of an attack on campus, the San Diego Unified School District Police Department said Tuesday.

The MRAP, valued at more than $700,000, was acquired at no cost to the district. The vehicle is expected to be operational in October.

“We recognize the public concern over perceived ‘militarization of law enforcement,’ but nothing could be further from the truth for School Police,” Capt. Joe Florentino said in an email.

Much of that public concern erupted last month in the wake of unrest in Ferguson, Mo., where heavily militarized police squads reacted to crowds protesting the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager. The White House is reviewing whether programs that equip local police departments with military gear are appropriate and will study how the equipment is being used.

Florentino describes the district’s MRAP as the county’s only specifically designated victim rescue vehicle. It will be clearly marked “rescue,” as well as display a large red cross on all sides, similar to an ambulance. It is able to climb up rapid floodwaters, pull down walls or ram through buildings to rescue trapped victims, Florentino said.

Schools police will train with firefighters and paramedics on how to insert medical teams into high-risk zones. Such techniques were borne out of the 1999 Columbine school massacre, the captain said. Officers had to wait outside for tactical teams while the shooters continued to kill students and teachers inside the Colorado school, he said.

“We can actually fit an entire classroom of elementary students inside our Rescue Vehicle; that’s 30-40 students evacuated with armor protection during every trip into a danger zone,” he noted.

The MRAP will also be made available to other law enforcement agencies in emergencies.
