Arthur H replied to the thread Felon and GCA 1968: Actress cries as she pleads guilty in college admissions scandal.
" Regardless of what America's enemies say, the COTUS is never null and void. I was brought up in the orthodox Christian tradition. We were taught to believe ourselves citizens of Heaven and children of God, regardless of our physical reality at the moment. I think there are several of us who believe that the COTUS says what it means and means what it says, regardless of what some may say to the contrary. Yes, the reality is that the 2A is infringed upon in reality and practice. That doesn't make it right. Right is eternal, the present is just temporary. "

Arthur H replied to the thread Felon and GCA 1968: Actress cries as she pleads guilty in college admissions scandal.
" First let me say that I believe prison should be punishment and not an alternative resort. People in prison should hate being there.

If felons have successfully concluded all of the terms of their incarceration--prison, probation, halfway house, counseling, etc., they should be as free as any other free person. The wages of their sin against society should have been paid in full. Though recidivism is likely, the opportunity exists for the freed felon to make a societally contributive use of his/her restored liberty. As it stands now, a convicted felon serves a life sentence. When I was in college, I was taught that one of the reasons that indeterminate sentencing was harmful to the desired rehabilitative process of incarceration was because the convict never knew when they would be set free and so, hardened them further against society and increased the likelihood of recidivism. If true to some degree or another, I think that can be extrapolated out to the "life sentence" feature of a putatively freed felon. It's silly to presume that a permanent second-class person would ever want to rejoin society and adhere to its highest norms when he/she can never in fact do so. This to me seems a guaranteed path back to a life of crime. Imagine, being free on the street but never really being free would serve only to rub a person's nose in that fact and feed resentment.

I remember being punished as a child. I was often spanked and set apart from the family for a period of time. Being told that I could come out when my parent said when I could come out was harder on me that being given a definite time period. Anyway, when the temporary banishment was over, I was once again restored to the family. The price had been paid. On an elemental level, I believe that process works for adults as well. "

Arthur H replied to the thread Dang its Hot!!!.
" I lived in Bay City, TX for a short while. It's south and west of Houston. It was hot and humid for sure. It was so humid, the mosquitoes just hung there in the air, sitting in rusting lawn chairs, sipping on frosty Lone Stars (The National Beer of Texas) or Pearls; sharpening their snouts and just waiting for innocent passersby to donate a pint of blood. Yoiks! With low humidity, I can live happy. "

Arthur H replied to the thread Rant of the Day: The National Weather Alerts need to be banned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
" I agree about weather panic alerts. I've lived in the Denver metro area for the best part of forty years. Years ago, the only excitement was over the very rare tornado and occasional actual blizzard. But because of the California Snowflake Invasion, if the wind is more than 10 mph and there's an inch of snow on the cars, not the pavement, just the cars, it's a CAT 5 natural disaster! It's SNOWMAGEDDON!! Then they drive down the road doing 20 mph, their windshield wipers going full speed, driving down the center line between lanes, and have a white knuckle deathgrip on the wheel in the hallucinatory belief their lives have meaning.

You beat me to it. One expects students at a STEM school to have higher intelligence despite Leftist Indoctrination and those kids walking out and others chanting "Mental Health, Mental Health" happily demonstrated that very thing. I worked at a facility directly across the street from that STEM school until last spring when I retired. The school is located in a bedroom community named Highlands Ranch in the affluent and liberal Douglas County. I was surprised when I read at Patriot Post that some students resented the animal Colorado Senator Bennett and another filthy Democrat politician dancing on Kendrick Castillo's bloody body stumping for gun control.

Arthur H created the thread Link Enhancement?.
" On rare occasions, I will include a link in a post. The link feature works fine. Most of the time, I would like the link to appear as a few descriptive words rather than two inches of gobbledeegook made up of words, letters, numbers and symbols. On another forum website, in the link drop down box, there is an extra line into which I can enter just how I wish to link to appear.

Is it possible to add that functionality to this forum website? "
