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."

(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;

Billionaire-backed gun control measure wins in Washington; rights win in Ala.

Evergreen State gun control proponents are celebrating passage of the billionaire-backed Initiative 594 while gun rights advocates supporting rival Initiative 591 are wondering what comes next as Tuesday night ballot returns point to a loss for their measure.


UPDATE: Meanwhile, Alabama gun owners scored a major victory Tuesday with passage of a state constitutional amendment that strengthened the right to keep and bear arms, and requires strict scrutiny on any restrictions placed on that right. It was clearly a win for the Alabama Gun Rights organization. The vote was a resounding 73-27 percent, and already some Washington gun owners are hinting they might look at Alabama as a new place to live.

According to KVI’s John Carlson Wednesday morning, yesterday’s gun control victory was a “wake-up call” to the firearms community to learn, regroup and come back energetically, and also make sure this doesn’t happen elsewhere. Carlson says the I-594 forces stayed focused, which is why they carried the day. He seems to overlook the massive budget advantage gun prohibitionists had, along with some rather disingenuous news coverage.


At the headquarters of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, grassroots activists are taking some consolation in the change of power in Washington, D.C., and what appears to be continued Republican control of the State Senate, and the fact that I-591 won in a majority of the state's counties. But now the test will be whether the new law will be enforced, or whether it will be unenforceable, as many in law enforcement have contended. While Second Amendment activists were disappointed, gun prohibitionists were partying.

The ominous prediction from Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat: “Expect more gun control legislation to come down the pike, and soon. The politics around that issue — the old trembling at the might of the NRA, the worries about the wrath of gun-loving voters — has officially changed.”

But a Seattle Times reader may have reflected the mood of many in the firearms community: “Congrautlations (sic) WA,” wrote a reader identifying himself as Jose Castillo. “You just voted to turn thousands of law-abiding citizens into criminals. And what about the real criminals? They couldn't care less. They'll get guns like they always have. Through their friends and connections illegally.”

I-594 will require background checks on all firearms transfers, not just sales. There will be use tax requirements. The waiting period on handgun purchases has been doubled from five to ten business days.

What comes next? Perhaps attempts to ban so-called “assault weapons.” Maybe an attempt to change Washington back to a “may issue” state where concealed pistol licenses are concerned. Yesterday this column noted that there are now more than 471,000 active CPLs in circulation.

Based on what happened Tuesday in Washington, the odds are good that similar efforts will be mounted in other states where big money will be able to dominate the airwaves and overpower grassroots activism, which has been the hallmark of the gun rights movement. Anti-gunners have found a formidable weapon of their own: Money.
