I went to school wearing tape on my shoes when the soles were worn, I took cracklens and a jar of honey to school for lunch, fed the cows before going to school, never saw a TV till I was 9 yrs. old, and ya know what! I turned out pretty damn good! oh my Parents and the Teacher both spanked me once in awhile, oh Geeeeeeeeeeze maybe I should hire a Lawyer and Sue my Parents and all of the Teachers that ever whipped me with a wooden paddle. Dr. Phil thinks that's just not right.

Popsmith (CRAIG SMITH) says...

You are wrong. It is my business when it affects my family. Homosexuality has been around for a long time. It isn't going to go away. There are two things about it that I hate.
1. It is a perversion of our design.
2. The lie that it is an okay lifestyle.

Thank you for setting the record straight. You would think Rudy would have learned something about glass houses before he shoots his mouth off about others.

Just for the record I did not blame the white man, just racism. And also for the record white teens are much more likely to use drugs than blacks. Usually I avoid black and white and use poor. But the subject of race was heavy in the discussion. People in the slums are treated differently. Period. And these folks do not want to do anything for them. Stop FOR PROFIT prisons.

Begin typing here... I wrote a long, 3 part response to you on the ADG board under Greenberg's article. When I say Stop the for profit system, I mean prison system. Sorry to be so wordy but there was a lot I wanted to say.

RobMurphy (ROBERT MURPHY) says...

Populist mom, when they want to marry your children because that is their "preference, and how God made them", you will want someone to stand with you then. Oh, but don't worry, you wont be around by that time! Its good to be so progressive and open minded that we don't have any convictions except the flavor of the day! Very hip indeed!

Yes, of course, I understood the sentence but it does not gibe with reality. That is why it does not make sense. As I pointed out again and again above Donald Trump is mentally ill and the degree to which he lies is unprecedented. Furthermore he is not "devious". He lies because that is who he is, he lies because he has a personality disorder. He is not planning and plotting to lie, he does not say "I am lying". He just lies. You folks do not get it. To be devious you have to have developed a sense of right and wrong. He does not have one. That is why he appears "genuine". For them to compare these two candidates on honesty and see equivalence is profoundly disturbing. My sister said the fact checkers show he lies 70% of the time. Those 1100 jobs he was going to save at carrier turn out to be under 800 jobs. He lies when he does not have to, he lies when he breathes. It is not planned, not strategic, not devious. He lacks a moral sense because he lacks empathy because he has NPD. So the sentence does not make sense. It misses reality by a wide mark.

RobertBolt (ROBERT BOLT) says...

Thanks for the interest, PopMom. If you go to Amazon and search "Bolt Boy vs." that will be enough to reveal the top search. For the reasons I mentioned earlier, I'm not trying to sell it to individuals, so you won't be able to read it. I did, however, create a like page on Facebook under the name R.D. Bolt that serves as a fairly detailed, spoiler-free supplement to the book organized from bottom to top by chapter. This will give you a sense of what it is about.
.
Anyway, I appreciate your interest and hope you enjoy it. At some time, I will make it available to the public again, regardless of whether I get another publisher.
.
I welcome your comments about the book, either here or in passing in the comments forums if you choose, although I hope you will avoid sharing information that certain hateful persons would distort and twist to no good purpose. Alternatively, send me a FB friend request if you consider it appropriate.

Take care.

Dave.

I went to Ft Smith Southside; born in LR, lived there after UA and then again from 2004-2015. Dad went to Hall and then got stuck in the Central crisis, Mom went to Fordyce. No immediate family left in LR; parents and brother and family in Tulsa and my family in north Georgia now. My wife is from Michigan; only thing we miss about LR is friends. It's getting horrible

drs01 (don Shellabarger) says...

I realize that SOME but not all do move their families to DC. The two you cited were 6 YEAR term senators, not 2 year congressmen. Regardless, my point is that the job requires a lot more than just 138 days the house is in session. That collectively is more time away from kids and family than a Little Rock law practice and legislative sessions in Arkansas, especially for someone new to the job who will struggle to gain an identity. I opined that his comments didn't resonate with me. I have cancer survivors in my family and their focus is FAMILY before all else. Maybe Tucker doesn't really feel that way. Regardless, his TV ad was phony to me. I said as much.
