To demonstrate how dumb an argument the otherwise reasonable Glenn Reynolds has made, let me explain why voting should be capped at 25. Let's stop adults from voting.

Ben Carson is trying to portray his stance on Muslims and Sharia law as defending the United States Constitution. But by making the argument for the separation of mosque and state but not church and state, he is showing his own hypocrisy.

Kim Davis certainly does not walk in the footsteps of progressive leaders who took a stand to improve circumstances for oppressed people. Rather, she follows the muddled path of such people as Alabama Governor George Wallace.

A Property Developer for President

"We need Trump now!" It is a random outburst from somebody in the audience, but it is the only conclusion possible in the context of the oration that is being delivered: an endless rant about everything that has gone desperately wrong in America in the last eight years. America doesn't have victories anymore.

Now, it's no news that big and powerful countries have been selling arms to Human Rights violators, and France's Egypt-Dassault deal is only a recent and particularly telling example. However, this does not make it more excusable in any way.

To put the arrest of Mansour and the collaboration between Egypt and Germany in context, one needs to understand that Egypt's government is not only illegitimate but weak, which explains why it is trying to pull EU countries -- mainly Germany and the United Kingdom -- into its camp.

Imagine if a Democrat Said 'We Must Resist and Reject Judicial Tyranny' After Bush v. Gore

Ask yourself what would Republicans have done if Gore supporters had compared such resistance to the American Revolution itself, and compared the Supreme Court to King George III. Ask yourself what would have been the reaction of the mainstream media to such statements.

Every victim needs a villain. Chose to be a survivor, a champion of your own soul and realize that everyone makes mistakes and does stupid things. It allows you a little permission to lose your own shit once in awhile when a HYMN throws down.

Jeb! 50 Shades of Religious Conviction

Jeb! is secular sometimes, and faithful and devout at other times. It all depends on where he is and who he is talking to. 50 states allows for 50 shades of Jeb!'s religious conviction.

Franklin Graham took to Facebook to announce he is moving his accounts to another bank to protest the Wells Fargo commercial featuring a lesbian couple. He is boycotting Tiffany's because they are selling wedding rings to gay couples. So is it safe to assume that he will be moving his Facebook and Twitter and Google and YouTube accounts to other media? Friendster, maybe?

In actuality, the GOP conducts itself as a party that stands for life until birth; then one is left to fend for oneself.

Farsh Askari | Posted 06.30.2015 | Healthy Living

Instead of an assessment (which implies judgment) and advice (which implies expertise), what someone who's mentally distressed, in any context, needs first, mentally and emotionally, is some acknowledgment and support.

Is the King Solomon Story Really About Mediating or Judging?

It's amazing how many ways Biblical text can be interpreted and the fact that the same people are willing to interpret the exact same text differently for their own selfish and self-serving purposes, as the need arises.

Hypocrites, Flip-floppers and Phony Patriots

Lance Simmens | Posted 05.12.2015 | Politics

Our leaders should strive to be paragons of virtue, yet their ranks are populated by hypocrites. I have long argued that hypocrisy is the mortal sin of politics. Never, it seems, is that more evident than in today's political environment.

If the Russians Love Their Children Too: The Hypocrisy and Promise of "Bad" Public Servants

My question is why is it so easy to leap to the conclusion that there are "bad cops" and at the same time, not draw the same conclusions about "bad teachers?"

None of this is reason to stop mourning the horrific murders in Paris or to excuse it in any way. But it is reason to wonder why the media can never tell a more balanced story of what is happening our world.

I've gotten used to the hypocrisy I know I possess as a parent. It's become a necessary evil. I am a normal, albeit flawed human, and "do as I say, not as I do" is always in the back of my mind.
