Re: “At press conference on 10 Commandments monument destruction, Rapert takes ACLU, Freethinkers, local media to task for 'fomenting hatred'.

Mr. Rapert decries an act of violence against an inanimate object on the state capitol grounds.

My question: Isn't the denying of adequate health care to people simply because they can't afford it a great act of violence? Since it does violence to actual human beings?

I know health care is not the topic of this thread, but Rapert mentions violence. It seems to me that the "TurtleCare" bill is an act of violence against the American people.

Re: “10 Commandments monument at Arkansas Capitol destroyed; suspect in custody for apparent repeat offense

tsallenarng: "...sounds like one of those "hold my beer" moments." I'm not responding to the vandalism, but that phrase is hilarious!

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

I always find it amazing that most social conservatives seem to be among those who deny evolution, but are absolutely Darwinians when it comes to spending our collective resources.

Talk about taxation without representation... Commitment without consent.

Re: “The equality open line

Unforgiven is certainly a classic movie, not just a class Western. The tension between good and evil is palpable throughout the movie. I love this moment:

Little Bill: I don't deserve this. I was building a house.
Will: Deserves got nothing to do with it.

Re: “Gunshot wounds bystander at Rave Theater

Someday corporate American, who actually are our rulers, will figure out that they're losing too many customers to gun violence. When that day comes, maybe, just maybe, some sensible legislation will be passed.
