The U.S. Constitution:
Section 3 defines treason and its punishment.
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
Oath taken by commissioned officers as of 1830:
I, _____, appointed a _____ in the Army of the United States, do solemnly swear, or affirm, that I will bear true allegiance to the United States of America, and that I will serve them honestly and faithfully against all their enemies or opposers whatsoever, and observe and obey the orders of the President of the United States, and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the rules and articles for the government of the Armies of the United States.
If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. Lee's actions look like treason to me.
I see that the signpost to Contrived Ignorance is full of himself tonight. The perfect imitation of conservative chic -- to be "insulted" by reality.
Still, everyone is entitled to be stupid even if they abuse the privilege.
SL is so bourgie!! A tank of swank do make him stank.
If any of y'all get down to the 504 in the future, check out New Orleans' Dat Dog - the only truly gourmet hot dogs I've ever eaten, located down the street from my house here in NOLA and DANGEROUSLY delicious. Duck, alligator, crawfish, turducken, brats, even a "Guinness Dog". The selection is mind boggling and mouth watering with a huge range of toppings and a bunch of different kind of fries, plus cocktails/beer and awesome shakes and floats. They even have their own house cured bacon vodka...not something I've sampled yet but definitely interesting. I got a truly epic duck dog special last time I went with spicy slaw, blackberry, and mustard...might sound questionable but it was truly amazing. Might have to go stop by tomorrow!
HDM just posted on FB, "In my experience I've learned to ask 'Is it broken?' before initiating or worrying too much about change."
Well, if "broken" is gauged by popularity and profit, then no, nothing broken there. But if broken correlates at all with quality, then, uh, yeah.
Mike knows what he's doing. And he knows he could do better. But for Little Rock, his dogs have been good enough--good enough to boost his popularity and good enough to boost his profit$. Usually, in business 'good enough' works just fine because it meets essential requirements. Many companies have survived - even made millions - from producing a 'good enough' product. And that's what HDM is making - a dog that meets our essential requirements: a full belly and socialization.
HDM has become a brand. It may not even be about dogs anymore. Looking at comments left on his Facebook page, most of his defenders tout his niceness, wittiness, and/or charitable spirit. And maybe that's what this is really about. HDM has hipster appeal and we become cool just by association. Hell, I'll pay 4 bucks to be cool.
So maybe HDM is right - nothing is broken. Because it never was about quality.
@Daniel, Yeah the baked rigatoni was a first for me on Turkey Day. We loved it though. Apparently it's a traditional dish that our friends family has every year.
I think about a lot of things, Paul. If you have listened, or cared to learn, I have spoken on many other things, too. It just seems that most of the folks here have some truly bizarre and ignorant notions on the Second, and some, Max included, have used faulty and deceitful data to push their ideas.
I can't argue with that, Steven. Every American - even the bat-shit crazy ones, should be allowed to have black powder muskets and pistols :)
Do you ever think about anything other than guns? There is a lot more to life than firearms. Gun dealers are going to be very sad if we elect a Republican President - there won't be a 9th annual "Obama is Coming to Take Your Guns" sale.
I have know Michael for years...and he is far from anything negative (for the record he really did move to new jersey to help his father, but life sometimes throws you a curve ball). All his social media is used for lots of good - he used his following to help me find a permanent ower for a pit I rescued and was fostering. Most of you sound really jealous...why does it bother you so much for someone else to have a strong social media following? I think it is lame to write an article and mention other hot dog places in other cities...try being happy for your city having a hot dog guy that makes it to Good morning America...certainly better for Arkansas to get this kind of exposure instead of the crap we normally hear. From someone who has worked, catered and thrown farm to table events, sometimes you just want a hot dog....boiled or not they hit the spot. i am sick and tired of everyone being so hurtful & rude about the restautants in town. They may not all be awesome all the time, but they sure the hell beat the Olive Garden.
Boy, a historian excoriating SCOTUS on flunking history, while showing us how he flunked English. I am a bit ashamed that such a vacuous gasbag like Bateman wore the uniform and lied within his soul as he took his oath. And Bateman has the temerity to call Lee a traitor.
Because the militia, as envisioned by the Founders, were the citizenry, the SCOTUS saw the obvious, that it was an individual right, just like almost the entire Bill of Rights.
Still, Bateman;s delusional hyperbole on his 'plank' are humorous for their complete lunacy. It's funny shit from an educated idiot. Little wonder this fool can bring in the likes of Outliar.
two words... terry lynn's.

>>don't be fooled by these 70+ degree temperatures at 6 PM. A major winter storm is headed this way.
Already cold as brass tit up heah but here's the local video going viral about THE STORM as if there's never been one before in North est Ark. All the grocery retailers love it, local telebision lurves it cause it keeps ratings higher and hence ad rates are better: STAY TUNED FOR THE LATEST!!!
sounds like a soon to be failed business to me.
Strangeone was as ignorant then as he proves himself to be now.
plainjim, no revolution today. We've got FAUX Propaganda to keep the right-wing masses misinformed.
Verla--So sorry to hear of your recent loss. Sound Policy mentioned the article in the paper on infant testing and it certainly made me think of you and baby James. I'm glad to see you posting here again.
We went once..and ended up going across the street to the Irish pub to get "real" lunch and came out cheaper than what it cost us for 2 hot dogs and a soda. He has the potential of making something great with his brand and location. But over priced boiled hot dogs is not the way to go. And cold bacon on a warm hot dog is a major turn off..yes it is easy..but all that shows is you are too lazy to provide your patrons with a respectable hot dog. Step it up Mike! I hope to try it again one day when you begin to expand and work on your product. Good Luck!!!
Durango, early votes in LR yesterday were 120 and today 142. That's 262 votes for the Chamber of Commerce's $70 million expenditure on Robinson Center and $0 for all the real problems facing Little Rock citizens and making most of their lives harder.
But hey, I guess the upper crust has earned this little perk on the backs of the people.
hideyakidsfrom post is about all the stupid you need to know to realize how
such a low-intelligence, high-emotion jerkwad got elected from Austin, AR.
I've known 2 younger jerkwads like him, one a phys ther and another an X-Ray tech. Both thought their small & narrow education-training entitled them to decide what's best for humanity and both became self-assured experts on economic matters.
Teaching pigs to read takes many years and frankly none of us have that much time.
GreenCart Deli, also a food cart in Conway, uses delicious ingredients, high quality dogs and toppings, and sells out most days. Try them. Gotta be better than the hot dog hipster....
