commented on Slog Bible Study: Revelation 1:9
It seems as though the early persecution of the Christians results in a tradition of a perseverance mindset today. This can be used by leaders to whip the faithful into a belief that they are still under attack by some larger population, when, in this country, Christians make up the majority of the power structure. This persecution mindset helps cement zealotry and hard line beliefs in order to hold the line against incursions into the community by athiesm, liberalism, what have you.
commented on Alaska Is On a Teabaggy Roll
@CPN, can it. Taxing the oil revenue is what keeps the tea baggers from having to pay income or sales taxes. Cutting those taxes will lead to budget problems in the future. No, there's no budget problems now, because the taxes are there now! That doesn't stop Republicans in charge of the legislature from cutting education in the name of cutting the budget. It's a give away by current and former oil company employees now in the legislature and governor's mansion, plain and simple.

@21 I totally agree. If new owners want to go ahead and build themselves a new stadium, I will happily go see the Sonics again.
But no more damn public money for stadiums.
