Re: “Bill to restrict food stamp purchases revived and made worse with photo ID requirement

James 1:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. - New International Version (NIV)

Re: “"Amazon tax" passes out of Senate, on to House

"Read my lips: More new taxes."

Tax and spend, tax and spend. In the end, there's no difference between the two parties when it comes to taxing and spending. They all want to tax and spend while insisting they don't. Alternate facts are not new to these charlatans, these posers who solicit salutations in the marketplace, who spout long pretentious prayers and who devour widows' houses. "Theirs shall be be the greater condemnation."

These arrogant pagans in christian's clothing don't believe in an afterlife. If they did, they'd more concerned about the fate of their immortal souls than the next late night drunken lobby-party/hooker-fest or the few dollars they can collect under the tables of the money changers that keep them addicted to power, money and sex.

There is nothing new under the sun.

Re: “Rapert wants legislature to push for amendment to U.S. Constitution to ban gay marriage

Reaction Formation: a kind of psychological defense mechanism in which a person perceives their true feelings or desires to be socially, or in some cases, legally unacceptable, and so they attempt to convince themselves or others that the opposite is true--often in a very exaggerated performance.

"The lady doth protest too much, methinks" is a quotation from Hamlet by William Shakespeare. It has been used as a figure of speech, in various phrasings, to describe someone's overly frequent and vehement attempts to convince others of some matter of which the opposite is true, thereby making themselves appear defensive and insincere.

Re: “The case for cannabis in Arkansas

On October 16, 1846, a Boston dentist named William Morton administered the vapors of a new chemical, Diethyl Ether to Mr. Edward Abbot so that Harvard surgeon, Dr. John Collins Warren could remove a tumor from Mr. Abbot’s neck. The patient woke up without pain and Dr. Warren declared to the gallery of observing physicians, “Gentlemen, this is no humbug!” There were naysayers in those days just as there are today with regards to medical marijuana. Our state surgeon general, our governor and a group of narrow minded physicians have recently planted themselves on the wrong side of history in their opposition to the investigation of the benefits of this plant. If men such as these had prevailed in 1846, the world would be very different today.

Re: “Why UA student senate rejected resolution against Rebel flag. Sad!

Granfalloon: Defined by Kurt Vonnegut as a group of people who claim a shared identity or purpose, but whose mutual association is actually meaningless. Examples: Hoosiers, Daughters of the American Revolution, Sons of the Confederacy, Razorbacks, Texans and so forth.

Re: “Our socialist U.S. Army

Wesley Clark once taught political philosophy at West Point. So when I met him one day just before the 2008 elections, I asked him a question I had been pondering: Plato's dialogue "The Republic" is considered one of the bedrocks of western political philosophy so I assumed he would be very familiar with it's content and implications. I asked him if he thought Plato's "Ship of State" analogy as described in The Republic was still a valid criticism of democracy in this day and age. General Clark stumbled and sputtered for a moment and then barked out, "The reason the country is in such a mess is because George W. Bush is an incompetent leader surrounded by incompetent advisors". His wife then took him by the arm and led him away. My conclusion is that General Clark is a very bright man who is politically astute but intellectually shallow; sort of a "pop" intellectual who got where he is by playing the game. While I would consider his counsel in military affairs, I would take anything he says regarding other subjects with a grain of sodium chloride.
