Meanwhile on Mars: "This rock is made up of rounded gravels in a matrix that's very sand rich," Rebecca Williams of the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson, AZ, told reporters. "And these attributes are consistent with a common sedimentary rock type called a conglomerate. ... Over time, erosion is working on that rock face and liberating some of the gravels and they're falling down and accumulating in a pile at the base of that outcrop."
Muttley not doing too well. Fails the empathy test, fails even the economy test. Bishop Romney, some say. Fallen into the clutches of the far right, some say; no doubt owes tithes that will need be repaid after the looming disaster. One lie over the line, sweet Jesus, seeps even into the TV patriarchs, and they alternate between the coming doom and their new savior, apparently Mr. Ruin, rather than Bishop Muttley. Every time he opens his mouth, the good Bishop, that is, it is as if Alaric crashes thru Rome again, or Rogers takes a beating in the first half against Seattle, an Armageddon of words wreck our wise Odysseus on an isolated shore. I'd advise the President to be presidential and keep the glad handing down to a minimum. Save some money. Paul Ryan? "Let me have men about me that are fat; Sleek-headed men and such as sleep o' nights: Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous." My candidate for the latest & greatest Anti-Christ. Peruse the litany, cut aid to dependent children, cut taxes on the oligarchy more war and more rumors of war, let us look together, once again, out over the the valley of Megiddo where the blood will flow as rivers. God preserve Israel for the coming fury of the Messiah and his mighty horde. Someone should ask Ryan if he would support the rebuilding of the temple on the Temple Mount. Would he celebrate Cassius's action or would he join Anthony in condemning him? So like Jesus, we would seek to trap, but nimble like a night thief he would dance away. Ah, well-my own off shore investments consist of tossing tomatoes out in the backyard in the hope of few strays next spring.
The Constitution says: "1: The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States; 2: To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;" They have been running away from that Power ever since. "...every citizen should quietly consider each point, then talk it over with his friends, and, finally, bring forward for public discussion any additions or subtractions which seemed desirable." (cf. Liv. III 34)
