In CT it is because the democrat controlled legislature takes the money from the Gas tax and doesn’t spend it on roads and bridges. They spent 590 million dollars on a bus way that no one will use. That’s 35 dollar a millimeter. More than half a billion wasted.

So, debt after 8 years under G.W.B was 6.1 trillion with a total debt of 9.5 trillion. Total debt after 5.5 years of Barry O is 17 trillion.
And that is supposed to be “Good”?
Good government puts us less into debt, not more.
You need to review some Sesame Street programs. More…. Less….. More…. Less…

I’ll take the first, second fourth, sixth, ninth and tenth from column A and the twelfth, fifteenth, seventeenth, twentieth, twenty second, twenty third, twenty fourth, twenty sixth and twenty seventh amendments from column B.
And add on a heaping of term limits for congress critters, and a term of 10 years for federal justices and judges. Only one reappointment possible. Let’s add on no candidacy for convicted felons for any office. And no modification of an existing law without specific authorization from congress.
That is a diet that would lead to freedom again.

So the longer muslims fight the Jews, the more land they lose. Interesting observation. Maybe they should give up trying to kill the Jews while they have any land left
And the Israeli government captured and will try those responsible for the murder of the one child in a court of law, and punish them to the full extent that the law allows. Will Hamas do the same?
Nope, you’re wrong. There has never been a country called palestine.
Israel was there long before mohammed was a tilt in his uncles kilt.
Abraham, Issac and Jacob, the Jewish patriarchs, took possession of the land as part of the promise that God made to Abraham in the 17th century BC.
Moses brought the Israelites back to the land in the 13th century BC.
The Jewish monarchy was established with the crowning of King Saul in 1020 BC.
The Jewish Temple was built about 960 BC.
The Babylonian conquest destroys the first temple in 586 BC
The Jews return to rebuild the Temple 538 BC
As part of the ancient world conquered by Alexander the Great of Greece (332 BCE), the Land remained a Jewish theocracy under Syrian-based Seleucid rulers.
When the Jews were prohibited from practicing Judaism and their Temple was desecrated as part of an effort to impose Greek-oriented culture and customs on the entire population, the Jews rose in revolt (166 BCE). First led by Mattathias of the priestly Hasmonean family and then by his son Judah the Maccabee, the Jews subsequently entered Jerusalem and purified the Temple (164 BCE).
Following further Hasmonean victories (147 BCE), the Seleucids restored autonomy to Judea, as the Land of Israel was now called, and, with the collapse of the Seleucid kingdom (129 BCE), Jewish independence was again achieved.
129-63 BC Under the Hasmonean dynasty, which lasted about 80 years, the kingdom regained boundaries not far short of Solomon’s realm, political consolidation under Jewish rule was attained and Jewish life flourished.
63 BC – 70 AD Israel under Roman rule. The temple is destroyed.
132 AD – 135 AD The Jews under the leadership of Bar Kokhba revolt against Rome.
313 AD – 636 AD With the conversion of Constantine to Christianity the rule of Rome is transferred to Constantinople and the Roman rule becomes the Byzantine rule.
636 AD to 1099 AD Arabs temporarily take control of the land of Israel.
1099 AD – 1291 AD Crusaders rule Israel.
1291 AD – 1516 The land of Israel is under Mamluk rule. They prove to be incompetent at administering the land and They destroy the ports of Akko and Jaffa. By the end of the middle ages the urban centers are little more than ruins, and most of Jerusalem was abandoned.
1517 AD – 1917 AD The land of Israel is under Ottoman Turkish rule. Administratively it is attached to Damascus and ruled from Istanbul.
1860 AD – First neighborhood, Mishkenot Sha’ananim, built outside Jerusalem’s walls.
1882 AD – 1903 AD First Aliya (large-scale immigration), mainly from Russia.
1904 AD – 1914 AD Second Aliya, mainly from Russia and Poland.
1909 AD – First kibbutz, Degania, and first modern all-Jewish city, Tel Aviv, founded.
1917 AD – 1948 AD British Rule under Mandate.
1948 AD – Israel is reestablished as a nation.
Muslims never owned the land. Muslims may have had it as a temporary possession, but the land of Israel has been promised to the Jews by God, and no one will keep it from her.
Jeremiah 16:15 “But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”
Ezekiel 20:33-34 “As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you: And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.”
As the Jews were regathered after the Babylonian the first time, they shall be regathered again.
Isaiah 11:11-13 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.”
And this time they will not be removed ever again.
(Ezek. 37:11-12, 14, 21-22, 25 NASB) “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel… 12I will bring you into the land of Israel… 14I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the LORD, have spoken and done it,” declares the LORD… 21Behold, I will take the sons of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land 22and I will make them one nation in the land… 25They will live on the land that I gave to Jacob My servant, in which your fathers lived; and they will live on it, they, and their sons and their sons’ sons, forever; and David My servant will be their prince forever.
The land belongs to Israel, and God will prevent you from ever displacing the Jews again. Live with it, or die trying to undo what God has said will not be undone.
Nope, you’re wrong.

So Dtroutma, unless they are muslims lives, the loss is meaningless to you, huh?
How refreshing of you to admit it.

You have a seriously flawed view of Christian soteriology. If I thought you would benefit from it I would explain just how, but Matthew 7:6 says not to bother.
