I adored Dylan back in the day. He was hero, poet, philosopher king, beatnik hippie all rolled into one. I knew the words to all his songs! I was in 7th grade when Kennedy was shot. I was in 4th grade during the Kennedy/Nixon pres campaign. My older sister who was a wannabe beatnik brought Dylan's Freewheelin' album into the house, probably around the time of the assassination. Many years down the road, I turned on Dylan after I read about Hurricane Carter to my own satisfaction. Now that was a very cool song! I could still say so although I think his version of the story is a lie. I don't buy that Carter was wrongly convicted and came to see Dylan's song as part of a whitewash. Even if it was catchy. So I was no longer favourably disposed to Dylan, now that I was 'grown up'. I heard Murder Most Foul when it first came out. By accident. I'm sorry for those of you who like it, but I don't. I was flabbergasted, found it asinine in every way. Including the title. Just sayin'
Hysterical! And yes I caught Chuck's irony in the midst of his hyperbole. Oxymorons are educated beyond their intelligence.
John 19:10-11 10 Then Pilate said to Him, "Are you not speaking to me? Do You not know I have the *power to crucify You, and the power to release You?" 11 Jesus answered, "You could have no power at all against me unless it had been given you from above." Authority for capital punishment is given to state leaders by God. Jesus did not come to abolish capital punishment, rather it is by His crucifixion that He redeems us.
One year, back a few, someone did a time-lapse video of March For Life! It was impressive, going on forever. I'm always baffled that there is no estimate of the # of people at the march....NYT coverage so ridiculous! A few hundred! Amazing they covered it- but only to diminish it. FYI the 'counter protestors' are organized under 'Stop Patriarchy', a CPUSA project. (That's Communist Party USA) Highly organized & well funded.

Median income (50,000) is too low to enable optimal investments in children of families at/below 50,000. I paraphrased (accurately I believe). What does that mean?? On the other hand thanks for this bit of clarity: " a minimum wage law is really a form of redistributive taxation."

Why is income inequality a serious problem in US? Just something for the govt to "fix".
