Like I said, go start an MMA org and try and host a fight without going through the government. Let me know how that works out for ya.

I guess having the guy who runs the largest MMA org in the world, Dana White, say the sport is controlled by the government isn't credible enough.

Like it or not, they make the rules, and they can ultimately ruin this sport or help make it flourish.

SO to make such an uneducated unresearched comment is par for the course with you. Try reading the whole bible not just the parts you like. In Acts we see the only part of the mosaic law that carried over was readin meat with the blood in it and eating strnagled animals and sexual laws. That other stuff is just a pathetic attempt at some retribution. Read the bible than come back with something better than "Shave lately" PLease...
I have yet to be stomped.. and since the laws were fulfilled.. then you would have to agree that there was a change.... hmmmm...?

My comment wasn't even directed at you.. but if you continue to imply that I am uneducated.. I will take issue... The closest I have come to being rude to you is to call you closed minded.. and that is kindda like calling the ocean wet..

Just let me know when it is ok to imply specific things about you.. Or to be rude to you.. mmmm'k....

And why do you continue to rob my "please" remark.. and when can I/we see your List.. and when are you going to show me all these comments that are locked away... that you studied for 7 years... and when are you going to go back and sit at the little table.. and leave the dining room table for the adults?... and when are you going to admit that you mis spelled the name of one of the guys that you "studied for 7 years"...

Is that moot too?

MMA only missed the boat on that legislation by about 5 years, don't worry...it will come to MMA eventually...

State governments are just much a "government" as the federal government, and if you hate the government so much, why love it when it's controlled by a "state"? Why have any rules at all?

[QUOTE=Spiritwalker;146302]I have yet to be stomped.. and since the laws were fulfilled.. then you would have to agree that there was a change.... hmmmm...? No they did not change one bit, in fact apart from Christ you are requried to keep everyone and that in part is what damn one to hell. Refuse Christ and you are bound by the law that is impossible to keep. Thus one must have Christ. No change. I would hope you would do better research next time. However you are probably at work so wait till you get home so you can think beofre you post

My comment wasn't even directed at you.. but if you continue to imply that I am uneducated.. I will take issue... The closest I have come to being rude to you is to call you closed minded.. and that is kindda like calling the ocean wet..I am very close minded because when oyu know the truth you do not need to be open to the fluff other call truth. Would you prefer the term ignorant? I am simpy saying you are talking baout htings you obviously know nothing about. If I were to talk about medicine with TexasRN and argue with her about it I would be uneducated because she know way more than I do about the subject. That is Brad unless you have a seminary degree and a post graduate degree and 15 years of ministry experience, than I wouls say you are an apostate. Uneducated is not an insult it just means you have not been educated. I am uneducated on a lot of things especially home repair and mechanics. I would not take offence if one called me uneducated if I told them they should use a bolt inseatd of a washer. Is it sinking in yet?

Just let me know when it is ok to imply specific things about you.. Or to be rude to you.. mmmm'k.... Do whatever you feel you need to NateR has already gave brad the green light to be rude to me. I will tell you this less gets accomplished when that happens

And why do you continue to rob my "please" remark.. and when can I/we see your List.. and when are you going to show me all these comments that are locked away... that you studied for 7 years... and when are you going to go back and sit at the little table.. and leave the dining room table for the adults?... and when are you going to admit that you mis spelled the name of one of the guys that you "studied for 7 years"... I used please with a smilily face because I was requesting you to think about it. You used please in a condesending rude fashion. There is a difference. And BTW I misspell a lot of things or do oyu not read my post fully. I can;t type to save my life and add extra letters and forget some as well. If spelling is your best defense then pask it up and move along you lost ay credibility going down that path.[/QUOTE]

I guarentee it would and the experts agree. The FBI was a task force to fight the mob not a national police force. Now it has grew passed its limits and have become relaitivly ineffective. You watch to much TV it is not like Criminal minds and W/O a trace in the real world. Often it is locals who catch the bad guys and the Fibbies swoop in and hog the glory.

Is that moot too?No that is just plain ridiculous if a boxer wants to take to manys shots to the head he should be able to a long as the locals allow it. Can you believe I had to obtain a freaking license to be a pro wrestler through the commission. How stupid was that. Even funnier they need to know you w/l record. This shows the GOV is useless

MMA only missed the boat on that legislation by about 5 years, don't worry...it will come to MMA eventually...I am sure it will

State governments are just much a "government" as the federal government, and if you hate the government so much, why love it when it's controlled by a "state"? Why have any rules at all?
The state level is constitutional the federal is not Apples and oranges my friend. The 10th amendment. And if I do not like that state I can move. Why do you think the whole gay marriage thing is pushed at the state level? Chew on it JB When we let the Feds dictate our lives we loose freedom.

God forbid someone in your family ever comes up missing or dead you would think very different of the FBI. Your response is very weak.

I think you watch too much TV, so there.

Go do some research on the FBI's child porn task force and how many perverts they bust. I suppose they are just hogging all the glory from those local cops though right? The local cops who are usually more concerned with busting people for seat-belt violations and other traffic beefs than actually doing the hard stuff...
