Yet, with limited understanding, MM is ready to proclaim what is true and not true. That's not how the game is played, sir. You either have facts or you don't have facts -- not some half-baked vague notion relying on superstition and the supernatural.
Godvoodoo is more what you're preaching. When you toss out reason and all other explanations of the facts, then you're not in a good position to make pronouncements about the Truth.
That starts with T which rhymes with P which stands for PROVE IT!!

No, D1 & 1/2. That wasn't what I was thinking at all. You have your own obsessions. One might even say you are possessed by them. I have a few myself. And I believe that a lot of folks of one persuasion or another obsess about Herr Donald. Won't say he inspires such - but maybe say that he evokes such.

The Peace of Wild Things


When despair for the world grows in me

and I wake in the night at the least sound

in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake

rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things

who do not tax their lives with forethought

of grief. I come into the presence of still water.

And I feel above me the day-blind stars

waiting with their light. For a time

I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Bob Dole, when he lost to Bill Clinton and the crowd was vociferously booing Clinton's name every time it came up, said it best: "He is my opponent, not my enemy." The crowd got quiet after that.
Maybe it's time to put the faux demons to rest.

Jacka$$ott - you must be referring to your own nightmares, rather than to Martin's writing. Tell us where he's despising and degrading his readers in this section: "Yet the world still offers delight. There are ways to ring the senses. You can love and be loved. You can seek and find cause for amazement in the stars and clouds. And in your studied smallness maybe experience a connection to the great ongoing thrum of the universe. Know you're but a spark, a flash across an undying blackness, and feel awe."
D123adnauseum....turn the mirror on yourself, then you'll see that you're speaking more accurately.
It's strange to find that right-wing agitators on these blogs feel that a moderate position is a far left liberal position. That is obsession.

It's not the freedom, justice and equality that folks have trouble with. It's that pesky "FOR ALL" part.
Can you imagine Mayberry with a SWAT team and military-style equipment. Barney would be living his wet dream. Instead of moonshine, it would be meth produced by the hill people; instead of cake and pie judging contests at the fair, it would be gun shows and anti-public school campaigns; instead of a welcome sign on the edge of town, a giant billboard would advise passers-by of the various groups who the town hopes never stop in their little burg.
The petty gossipers would have Trump stickers on their cars. Floyd the Barber would head the Tea Party chapter. Opie would get into drugs when he reached high school and his new name would be Dopie.
And some rare quiet night, Andy will sit forlornly at his office. For the first time ever, he'll pull a gun out of the desk, load it with one bullet. After writing just one word on the note pad in front of him, he'll stick the gun into his mouth and pull the trigger.
The note will puzzle investigators and baffle locals when they learn that it only says: "Why?"

Beset by 'disgusting' media, Trump says August 15, 2016 at 8:17 p.m.

Grumpy - don't be an idiot and try to tell folks you know what I'm thinking. You don't have the ability or the skill to do such. Only fools claim to know what others think. So, stick to speaking for may be tiresome and nasty and a tad boring, but you won't look like your sucking your thumb after pulling it out of your dirty rectum.
As Dracula said to his girlfriend, "Do you want to go down for the Count??"

Beset by 'disgusting' media, Trump says August 15, 2016 at 9:43 a.m.

fivethirtyeight has sampled all the polls and the prediction for November for chances to win Presidential vote is Hillary 88.8%, Donnie 11.1%.
And it's still going down for Trump. (Wait a minute....isn't that what many of the women in Trump's life are noted for? Going down for him??)

Clinton backers open Little Rock office August 14, 2016 at 1:19 p.m.

Jacka$$ott is a fool who is just parroting the rhetoric, spam, and propaganda of his masters. It is about as real as a snowman in the Sahara.

If Arkansas was a nation August 14, 2016 at 1:12 p.m.

The lesson here is to keep religion out of public schools, government, and agencies which need to remain neutral on these subjects. It is not their business to promote religious teaching at the taxpayer's expense or even in a facility payed for by the taxpayer. These folks have a church to do such things in. Keep it there where it belongs.
Popmom, I agree a bit with you that parents and kids will shy away from the satanic group, BUT there will be exceptions to this.
As to provoking a lawsuit, I hope it does. Maybe it'll keep all boogie bears at bay, Christian ones and satanic ones and so on. Keep superstition out of schools. Our students deserve better. Stressing our humanity and connection to the world around us is far more important.
