if they make animal abuse illegal and separately to continue banning the ability of people to have hens on their properties, then what they've essentially done is resurrected the old Soviet model of starving their own people in the midst of a prosperous land.
hopefully regulations can be lifted for free market, that is freedom of association, there are excellent ways, just as the WWII generation did (it was considered patriotic to have chickens and a garden) to have a home supply of eggs to share with the neighbors.
overall, its a good move to ban abuse of animals. besides the abuse of our call to be stewards of the land, imagine a sickly animal, not fed right and kept from the light, and all that the outside provides, their food is denatured and unhealthy.
free range chickens are quite possible on small farms, and can be beneficial to the soil, Farmer Salatin does much teaching on this and is a Christian, its better for the animals and better for the people.

well, there goes 80% of Nevada land and the end of sheriff jurisdiction, but the gossip columns are profitable. reminds me of the frog in the pot. for those still asking what this is about, don't worry, its all about turtles.
I have a lot of respect for Ravi and have followed him over the years. One of the few that has not pushed political agendas, he is the kind of gentleman who would think nothing of sharing the gospel with Palestinians one night and Israelis the next. People know when they invite him, they aren't getting a politician.
The other guy there that night apologized to the Mormons, that was a disaster.
Video of gentleman who came to the Lord after Ravi's witness. (his books on other religions are very helpful)
my understanding is that you are suggesting that the poor are poor for their own fault and that we should undiscerningly throw ourselves into the arms of corporatism as the answer to big gov.
please correct my assumptions here, I only want to deal honestly with this.
what I am showing is that corporation-government is a monolithic monster eating up free market and indvl rights.
what I am suggesting is the bible verses offered work in correlation with what we see happening in our time.
you assume I'm for big government because I point out corruption in corporation .... that is a fundamental philosophy on your part that corporatism is an antidote to statism. I would suggest they are one in the same.
no religion, I guess, dad was catholic, mom jewish. but if salvation is through race, then he's jewish despite being atheist.... the kind of crazy way to theology through politics. what he needs to read is the New Testament, then he could understand the Old, without the Messiah, God has failed, left the world in Chaos, but He hasn't because the Messianic scriptures are fulfilled in Christ and His atoning work on the cross and resurrection.
I do not know who owns Hollywood, although I've heard it said there are few who own Hollywood and news media.
so I typed in the phrase, "who owns Hollywood" and ended up on a Wikipedia about the history of Hollywood (not necessarily current) -- which led me to what looks like an interesting collection of movies on jewish film dot org, to a movie that I think was originally played on television called, "hollywoodism: Jews, movies and the America dream".
I don't think the evangelical has really ever had a voice in this industry.
CAB, you are bringing in big names, powerful people, that have the wealth of millions of people combined, who own the markets......can you conceive it possible that they use their own? that they use the word "anti-Semite" to hide behind their own people? when you throw out the word "Jew" are implicating all of them, because the word has been manipulated to be a "race" (even though though they are multiracial and often not semitical) -- I would advise a different strategy and let each person speak for themselves, because I find your approach as troubling as those on here that find all muslems guilty and therefore they just laugh when globalists come in with their destructuring of society. I'm not sure if you can be reasoned with --- if you stop listening to others, even when we find real information, it has to be delivered with the love of Christ.
I find your view of Islam limited too. it can be quite antichrist in nature as well... have you known or lived in nations and heard the sounds of the prayer calls, the women in the streets stoned to death for being "permiscuous" by being attacked, etc?
and this I say along with many find moslems who are there helping the Christians in Syria while our politicians call the jihadists freedom fighters.....
JIm, there is no better "healthcare" for this under the current eugenics model, antibiotic resistance has come. they are at the end of their model, and might have to break up the monopoly, or just continue on in willful ignorance.
