Re: “The prayers of Rapert

i am bothered by the number of people being judged in he said/she said denials, although in the roy moore case, it is he said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said..... and counting.

Re: “Hutchinson on governor's race: "I am not going to take anything for granted."

interesting the speed and moderate intensity with which the 'dislike' attributions appeared. as one of my favorite philosophers used to muse, 'when you throw a stick into a pack of dogs, the one that yelps is usually the one you hit.' are the republicans really that worried that a democrat might take the governor's office from them? i smell fear in the air and blood in the water. we might not need to add much pepper to the discussion, as we seem to be off and running.

Re: “Commission approves concrete security for Ten Commandments monument

someone, as in when we manage to elect a competent attorney general, should investigate rapert's finances. getting the stone tablets and symbols removed from the capitol grounds will be one thing, but accounting for differences between rapert's semi-legitimate expenses and his take, aka the fleecing of the locals, might yield some discrepancies. jason better sharpen his pencil and make sure his books will keep him out of prison.

Re: “Four senators call on President Trump to resign over sexual misconduct allegations

dowhat? what irony? do you really see no difference between consensual activities between, or even among, adults, and pedophilia? really? do you also see no difference between driving through a school zone at 21 mph and 75 mph? that is your right, but you should understand that reasonable people might not agree with your lack of perspective in your value judgments.

if forced to choose, do you think that monica would vote for moore or bill? someone should ask her.…

the real story, in my mind, is the ongoing rape of the american way of life, starting with de-funding CHIP (child health insurance, in case i need to explain), the coming disappearance of affordable health care for all, disintegrating the epa and returning to the good old days of rampant pollution, oh, and giving away our national parks. molesting young women and men is bad, and older women and men, but these offenses, as bad as they are, pale by comparison with the effects of the systematic destruction of things that we must do if our children and grandchildren are to survive, much less flourish.

so, dowhat, what is the irony to which you refer, and how do you rank your concerns with all else that is happening?

Re: “Rep. Bob Ballinger wants to keep fighting over birth certificates

someone should tell bob that dna testing, not marriage licenses, would be the only way to determine 'biological' fatherhood, or motherhood, for that matter. how would you allocate surrogate gestation of a donor egg by some unknown sperm donor? in addition, the infant is not simply a mix of dna of two people.
other stuff happens in the process of gestation, and that's just the biology.
who's gonna pay for all the testing? from what tax break does he propose to steal the money? when a parentage study was performed some years ago, about 10% of infants born in a hospital were biologically derived from the mother's husband or significant other. making a baby does not require all that much. raising a child is what we should respect.
