God according to Charlie Fuqua

In an earlier post on extremist Republicans (repetitive, I know), I mentioned I was planning to peruse House Republican candidate Charlie Fuqua's book, "God's Law: The only Political Solution."

Now that Lindsey has done a quick scan, I think some excerpts he found deserve a blog post of their own.

STARVE 'EM


The minimum wage should be set at zero. It is simply a lie that raising the minimum wage helps people at the low end of the pay scale.

KILL 'EM

We cannot continue to sustain the percentage of our population that is in prison. No prison term should be longer than two years. Prison should be unpleasant and rehabilitative. Anyone that cannot be rehabilitated in two years should be executed. [emphasis supplied]

PRAY


Education is inherently religious activity. Some religion will be taught in schools. Because God has been banned from public schools by our court system, the religion taught in public schools is secularism. If we decide to continue to fund education with public funds, the only way to have an educational system that gives parents the freedom to have their children taught the religion they desire is to have a voucher system that enables the parents to select the school the parents desire.

THROW THE MUSLIMS OUT


I see no solution to the Muslim problem short of expelling all followers of the religion from the United States.

Also recommended: Fuqua's Q&A with himself as part of the "media kit" for his book. In it, he explains why today's money system violates two of the Ten Commandments: against stealing and false witness. You'll have to read it.

BTW: Fuqua is a fruitcake of long standing. When he served as a Republican representative from Springdale, even Republicans didn't have much good to say about him. He made the Dem-Gaz's worst legislators list. Republicans were quoted as saying Fuqua was an embarrassment. Gov. Mike Huckabee said at the time: "I will say that we had some difficulty with only one Republican, that being Charlie Fuqua..."

CORRECTION: Fuqua's Democratic opponent, James McLean, is no liberal. The Koch billionaires have even praised his vote against Obamacare. But they'd be happy to see Fuqua win. Why? An automatic vote is an automatic vote, nutcake or not. The Republican Party has completed transition to automaton Koch-run Tea Party. The remaining few sane, if they dared depart from the company line, know they'd be expelled quicker than Fuqua would boot a Muslim by a Koch-backed nutcake in a primary.

Again: I know I risk this item being printed and distributed in a Koch flyer to the delusional who think Charlie just might be onto something. But when they come for me, I don't want to say I'm sorry I didn't speak sooner.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
