    I think you have the wording wrong. In the case in question you can be sure because of the politics of the moment, charges would be filed with maybe even steep bail. Politics being what they are maybe they could get a lot of financial support so...

    Many Christians support the death penalty but not all. Some sins are certainly deserving of death but should Christians ever put a person to death. What do you think Jesus would say about Christians carrying out a death sentence? If on a jury...

    Is it murder to kill a murder? Who is to judge which murderer is more evil or are they both equally evil. If you kill an abortion doctor can you be sure you have saved a single life? Wouldn't you have to kill many as the woman who wants an abortion...

    That is not what the study says, it said the asymptomatic transmission was not common but still did occur. We also have symptomatic people walking around ignoring their symptoms. Tim

    Where are these studies you cited, I don't see any links in your post. Some of your claims contradict many recent news reports based on other studies. How much does a mask need to reduce transmission to be worth wearing. At this point mask...

    Actually, we had masks before this outbreak because my wife wanted us to wear masks during flu season in the past. People in Asia had been mask wearing long before this pandemic. You do to have social media, this site is social media. What you...

    As far as I can tell every law, rule, order or suggestion about wearing a mask is an "if this then you must/should wear a mask" nobody is required to wear a mask. Wearing a mask is a choice or part of a choice you make. People are not being called...

    My big lot of range scrap tests at BHN 8.2. Can't say how much tin it has but it casts fine. 50/50 range scrap and COWW tests at BHN 11.0 so it pretty much like the diluted #2 or electrotype or Lyman #1 :-). It took a pretty good dose of Mono to...

    I think there are some problems with that table. The 1:1 lead/Lino entry does not total 100 percent, should be 6 percent antimony. That would make it the same as the line above it. Wheel Weights or at least the clip on kind are harder than...

    This won't work with Acorn blanks but will work with longer ones. A .22 mag fired case is a slip fit over a .22 LR case. You could use a fired .22 mag case as a bushing to upsize the blanks. You might have to open up the hole in the case a little. ...
