I try and ultimately fall short, but my journey is bringing me closer to Christ. I try daily to follow John 13: 34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Judging by the majority of your comments, I'm not so sure you know what it means to be a Christian...
That's the unalienable part...
un·al·ien·a·ble (n-ly-n-bl, -l--) adj.
Not to be separated, given away, or taken away; inalienable
Kia, there's a legal theory out there that the courts have apparently embraced that uses the line in the declaration of Independence that references the "self-evident" that "they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
If you believe we have the same creator, and that the creator bestowed upon all of humanity certain "self-evident" rights, then said rights transcend the geo-political boundaries we have set for ourselves.
Not justifying illegal alienism, merely stating one possible justification.
FYI -- the fund for low-income housing for the HOME program aren't from sales tax dollars or property tax dollars, they're from your federal income tax dollars, which you pay regardless of where you live or shop.
Are you expecting violence to stop altogether? If so you're living a pipe dream. And whose to say it isn't working? Last year we had the lowest number of homicides in Albany (4) in the last 40 years.
Paperwork from PSC suggests "without."
I don't get the big deal. The "few folks who can kill you with a drone," are the same ones who have yet to kill you with a jet or cruise missile attack. The people actually flying the drones and pushing the buttons are trained U.S. service personnel just like the ones flying the jets are working the turrets on the ships that fire the cruise missiles. I'm not aware of one single U.S. fighter jet attack or bomber run on U.S. civilians on U.S. soil. Maybe I'm misguided here, but the drone attacks, so far at least, have targeted known terrorists or their associates with the vast majority of drone usage for reconnaissance. Oh and by the way, there's a difference between Muslims and terrorists just like there was a difference between Timothy McVeigh and Christians.
You're right. I'd venture to say that most of the time an arraignment is more strategy than it is for "doing the right thing." I will say that generally, the feds tend to have an extremely high conviction rate so when they bring cases, usually they're really strong cases. These four folks have got a long road ahead of them if they all expect to walk on this.
If they did, they wouldn't have had an arraignment. You "always" have the option to plead guilty or not guilty.
