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

Yeah Howard, I'm thinking this was a plot by Jason Raper(t) to correct the 11 Commandments monument and have an insurance company pay for it.

Adding that "Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven images" (graven on a stone monument) was not only ironic, but brought the number of commandments up to 11.

I AM the LORD thy God.

(1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

(2) Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven images.

(3) Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain.

(4) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

(5) Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

(6) Thou shalt not kill.

(7) Thou shalt not commit adultery.

(8) Thou shalt not steal.

(9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

(10) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house.

(11) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his cattle, nor anything that is thy neighbor's.

Re: “Justice, Arkansas style: Discrimination continues on birth certificates

What could take time? Nobody said they had to come up with a new procedure. They can just use the procedure they've been using for years for hetero couples.

Unless they really are going to change it for everybody.

Re: “Justice, Arkansas style: Discrimination continues on birth certificates

All the SCOTUS said was that the state has to provide equal treatment for same sex as for different sex couples. That means that the State can come into compliance by treating all hetero couples the same way they want to treat homo couples. Now nobody gets their spouse's name on a birth certificate. Wouldn't be the first time the Ledge cut off everybody's nose to spite their face!

Re: “Pay Commission agrees to exempt lieutenant governor from 2 percent pay raise

Attorney General gets a raise?!? She ought to get her pay docked. Batting 0.000.

Re: “Medical Association says Arkansans look unfavorably on Obamacare changes

I'll agree that the ACA is choking to death, but it's been the last three Republican Congresses that have been standing on its throat. If they'd stop working to kill it and instead offer a little first-aid, the ACA would thrive.

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

Vanessa, RYD, et al., it's worse for Leslie (and the SCOA) than losing a 6-3 SCOTUS decision, this was summary judgement!!! so those three votes weren't necessarily agreeing with our AG and Court, those three votes were just to hear arguments from the parties. The six in the majority were saying that Arkansas was so clearly wrong in its opinion that there was nothing they could say that would convince the majority. The Supreme Court of the United States rarely issues summary judgement. Issues that usually rise to the level of the Supreme Court have an issue or two that need closer look, but this one was a full twisting, behind the back slam dunk. Those only happen when the defense has fallen down in the back court.
