The vast majority of our greatly overpaid "conservative" representatives appear to be boobs in the woods and unfit for combat. Scarcely any of them show evidence of ever having read the Federalist Papers or Anti-Federalist Papers, let alone Lenin, Hitler, Alinsky or Sun Tzu and are easily blindsided by every radical gimmick that comes along. The guerilla strategy and tactics of the opposition call for subterranean disruption that does not come easily to half-educated Harvard lawyers. Limbaugh and Hannity are great front men .. but only for battle tactics employed by the Redcoats in 1776. Republicans must develop a new ground level style of domestic warfare.

There are 14 5/8 or 5/9 Troy ounces in one pound Avoirdupois, and 12 Troy ounces in one pound Troy. One pound Avoirdupois weighs 454 grams and one pound Troy weighs 373 grams. If that doesn't drive you nuts, throw on a few grains and pennyweights. You need to know this kind of stuff if you ever want to calculate the extra weight taken on by X - number of outlaws in a cowboy movie when they have just lifted Y - number of thousands of dollars in payroll gold from a stagecoach, figuring the historic value of $20 per Troy ounce.

I believe the records will show that George Washington's family was not exactly impoverished by the standards of the times, and while he was ambitious and hard working, he married "well" in his program of advancement. The tap root of secession and the Civil War might well be traced at least to Andrew Jackson and his advocacy of State's Rights and ethnic cleansing.

....sperm cell "A", would it have a different 'soul?' Is there some good reason why God is unable to move a soul from one fetus (that may not live) to some other fetus that happens to be coming along? And so on. Please develop your thesis a little more.

Sorry Judge, I can't see where your biological or theological expertise is much better than Akin's presumptions. Your entire argument requires acceptance of the idea that a dependent fetus is a bona fide member of the human (or any other) species. Most likely you subscribe to the idea that homo sapiens has a God-given "soul" and is thus Special, and you don't worry about those chicken fetuses you devoured for breakfast. You need to explain why God irrevocably endowed a fetus with a 'soul' at the moment of conception instead of at the first contraction, or even postnatally. Riding around in a semi-coma (?) for nine months seems like a monumental waste of time to me. If the fetus had originated with sperm cell "B" instead of sperm cell "

The "use" of wildlife, wild lands, water, and space, not to mention the concomitant ethnic cleansing was something more on the order of run amok libertarianism on its logical course. To be realistic, the theme of the day was nation building and the mission was subjugation of "the commons" before some other power moved in. The lands were "owned", i.e., occupied and claimed by the natives, which mattered not to the libertarian spirit of conquest and personal profiteering. The native owners had muddled along for well over ten thousand years until the dregs of an over-populated world spilled over and showed them how good Christians do it.
Governing Sweden (pop. 10 million) or say a state like Michigan or Georgia - must compare to governing a country of 300 million about like the comparison between driving a bicycle and driving an aircraft carrier. Or maybe a little green grape vs. a big Texas watermelon. Huh?
