So what's your point hotdog. Your cookys' in the mail.
If you had bothered to keep up with the issues at Bryan College perhaps you might have a clue. Besides the fact that many of the professors have chafed at having to embrace a clarification of their loyalty oath, many of them have been moving towards a less literal interpretation of parts of the Bible.
As far as the quotes from Clarence Darrow, (and the reference by Clay of Mr. Darrow)? You do know that Bryan College was named after William Jennings Bryan who debated Mr. Darrow in the Scopes Monkey trial?
See the connection?
I note that many times you miss the subtle nuances of many of Clay's toons so, no cookie for you.
“I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure — that is all that agnosticism means.”
― Clarence Darrow
“The fear of God is not the beginning of wisdom. The fear of God is the death of wisdom. Skepticism and doubt lead to study and investigation, and investigation is the beginning of wisdom.”
― Clarence Darrow
Robin, I searched your post and I have not seen where you would make up the shortfall for doing away with this tax.
Oh, let me guess, the typical conservative shuffle of cutting taxes for the upper class will result in cutting services for everyone else.
Perhaps you could provide some statistics of the number of people running out of the state because of this tax. Also, these same people have benefited for years by not paying state income taxes.
This is the same scam and alligator tears that was perpetuated to do away with the inheritance tax which benefited the rich in the state.
But hey, we can make up the shortfall by passing on the responsibility further down the economic ladder.
Conservative - People have been getting rid of gods for thousands of years. I do rather miss Zeus, although he seemed a little temperamental at times.
Kinda like the christian god.
Conservative - Are you really so starved for attention that you have to post with gargantuan bold fonts? The same post, over and over.
Seriously, grow up.
Ted Cruz wants to eliminate Obamacare, denying millions of Americans the opportunity for health care.
Perhaps Teddy should tell everyone about his gold plated health care plan. He is covered under his wife's health care plan. She is a manager at Goldman Sacs.
Must be nice to not worry about health care or its pesky costs.
TOES - it's not the bumpkins leading the pack that scare people, it's the mindless bumpkins that are following that scare people.
Some people still recall popular bumpkins named McCarthy, Wallace, Helms, Lester Maddox, etc.
The above named would have been quite comfortable in todays Tea Party.
Dog - Perhaps you might consider this weeks CPAC meeting, with its attendent lunatics, as "Keeping up with current events?"
It even had christian music – ‘Livin on a Prayer’, LOL
Mitch McConnell as Charlton Heston, woo hoo.
Mitch does not want to be perceived as a weak-kneeded conservative with the Tea Party barking at his heels.
Ahh, the Tea Party, such great entertainment. Better than the 'Keystone Cops' or 'The Gang Who Could'nt Shoot Staight'
Ahh, you and Rand Paul can only wish that she does not run.

- Phillip Johnson's quote is the height of intellectual dishonesty. Public schools teach the theory of evolution by natural selection. They do not teach that reasoning humans have the right to eradicate others who they consider racially inferior as embraced by Hitler. What idiocy.
But what can you expect from Phillip Johnson, a born again Christian who is one of the founders of intellegent design.
In regards to the book by Richard Weikart, you will not find one quote from Hitler or other leading Nazi's lauding Darwinism as their motivations. No record of Hitler ever reading Darwin.
Hitler and the Nazi's were Darwinists?
Here is the 1935 guidelines for banned books as published by Die Bücherei, the official Nazi journal for lending libraries.
Note number 6 which says 'Writings of a philosophical and social nature whose content deals with the false scientific enlightenment of primitive Darwinism and Monism (H�ckel).'
Should we also note the similarities of Hitlers' belief in a "Master Race" and the Old Testament belief of a "Chosen People"? Both murdered and enslaved according to their belief of being divinely superior.
Here is a good read..
