Religion divides society…into those who are ready, willing and able…to turn a blind eye to the immorality and bigotry, openly enshrined within its religious literature, practices, and history…in exchange for a sense of belonging to a group of similar avoiders…and, those who can just not stomach such abhorrent practices and attitudes…

Whether you agree that we need the National Guard or the additional deputy sheriffs that I have previously called for to secure the border, it is shameful that our troops would be sent to keep us safe without basic supplies like food.

That’s right, folks. The Governor of Texas has dispatched troops to our border with Mexico, but has neglected to pay those troops. If we are utterly honest in our assessment, then both liberals and conservatives alike must site unfunded mandates as the Republican Party’s most persistent, most disruptive, most crippling administrative tic. Perhaps Republican ideas are so bad that even Republicans balk at paying for their costs?
