Re: “Rutledge unhappy about Supreme Court decision on gay rights

isn't this the same person who was quoted as having said or emailed something to the effect of, 'if there is grass on the field, play ball'?

Re: “Two years of marriage equality and the American family still stands

dbi, your comment re troops to annex mexico is most timely, albeit perhaps mis-aimed, as the texas American Legion Boys' State just voted to secede (from the union).

Re: “Annals of meanness: Senate health bill could affect 400,000 Arkansas children

Dennis, you are welcome, but i will add that i had to circle several times to avoid my first impulse of responding a lot more like what i suspect you would have written. i hold in check with some of these by the quote i have used a few times in print and many times in my mind that when one wrestles with a pig, both get dirty, and the pig probably enjoys it. this is not my way of calling golfer a pig. pigs are relatively intelligent animals. not only might golfer find living on a poverty line wage challenging, people who have made it to upper levels financially don't seem to see the benefits they have received and continue to receive from our government. the list is too long to begin, but we can start with price supports for farms and farm products, public education for the people themselves and any employees or other workers on whose abilities the barons of industry depend, the medicines and therapies upon which, well, we could go on and on. the myth of the 'self-made' man or woman is another of those delusions that so many people believe so assuredly. another plug here for al franken's book, a giant of the senate, in which he expounds upon such things. and gyl, the money won't 'run out,' if we can somehow manage to avoid overlooking the idiotic kansas/brownback economic lunacy that seems to attract republicans like moths to a flame or horseflies to, well, you get the picture. Folks, trickle-on does not work. never has, never will. please pay attention.

Re: “Annals of meanness: Senate health bill could affect 400,000 Arkansas children

i logged into the comments on this section with the intent of recommending that the verb 'affect' was far too weak. damage, harm, cripple, and kill are likely to be closer to the heart of the matter than is 'affect,' as affect can include some positive changes. i stand with that suggestion. 'affect' is unlikely to convey to most readers the true consequences of the proposed legislation. then i wander through golfer's post. i try to avoid reading his mindless singsong 'we won, you lost, get over it' posts and work even harder to grant him or her the recognition that s/he seems to seek through those posts, but the one above really struck me. dude, are you really that heartless and really that dumb and ignorant? Has to be all of the preceding, because only one of those traits would not be enough to cause a mammal to ask a question like that. medical crises are responsible for about half of the bankruptcies in the US, and those are not limited to just the people at 138% of poverty. People will die, families will be crushed. not just could be, will be. Denial of coverage will also be more expensive for you. being heartless and stupid is one thing, but being proud of yourself for pretending to be in that club is just hard for me to understand. if you have the time and energy, please explain to me how you plan to present yourself to saint peter at the pearly gates, in the hope of being able to be allowed to enter.

Re: “What a deal is Trumpcare! Spend more for less coverage with higher deductibles and fewer benefits

Someone please explain to me why this effort to kill a bunch of Americans does not constitute a terrorist act. Although lacking the flash boom bang of bombs and guns, the people perpetrating this abomination will kill far more people and do far more damage, for what purpose? to give more money to the very rich.
