Some Exceptions May Apply

The Ten Commandments are back in the news now that Louisiana has ordered them posted in public school classrooms. It may violate the separation of church of state, but sometimes it’s interesting to see just how little Americans, who claim to be mostly Christian, uphold these basic tenets.

    Still laughing, but then staring into the distance feeling kind of numb. Thank you 🙂

    The Republicans want the Ten Commandments? Fine. Give them the Ten Commandments.

    But you’ll need committees. And expert testimony. Lots of experts. You’ll have to shut down all other business of the government, to make sure this gets resolved quickly because it’s vital. Then, just before it’s finally resolved? Bring up a shellfish rider. Bible says no to them. Sorry shrimpers, you’re all out of business. What’s that? It’ll tank the Louisiana economy? “God will provide.” Then move on to pork. And so on.

    I’m sorry the dems and the progs don’t know how to win a fight. In “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” Harvey Logan sums it all up perfectly (right before he’s kicked square in the crotch). “Rules in a knife fight? No rules.” When the other side starts some stunt like this? You do whatever it takes. Sand in the face. Sucker punch. Whatever it takes. And the next time they think about getting clever again like that? They’ll remember what happened the time before.

    If the dems actually TOOK CONTROL of the conversation for a change, they might be amazed.
