"Can I tell you what I'm gonna do to you?  This is what I'm gonna do to you.  Hear me brother.  When we get in the ring, I'm gonna dominate, I'm gonna bring the furry!."

Of interest, the stipulation that the bribe be paid in "old coinage" which by the year, about 276, recognizes the inflation of the drachma by the power of dilution.  Asking for old coin means the real value of that coin was superior to contemporary, diluted coin.  

This is why our federal government seized the gold and silver coins.  Keeping them in circulation would have blunted efforts to dilute our currency, the dollar,  through inflationary policy.  
Who says only modern-day pro wrestling is fake? Researchers have deciphered a Greek document that shows an ancient wrestling match was fixed.

Two sources confirmed that there have been talks about the federal government supporting a move by the state to give Detroit $100 million in federal money for blight remediation. That, in turn, would free up $100 million of the more than $500 million that emergency manager Kevyn Orr planned to spend for blight removal over the next 10 years. Orr could then use that money reduce pension cuts.

Sleep deprivation theater...

I just started singing (in my head) the Peanut Butter Jelly Time song but had replaced Jelly with Taco for some reason.  Maybe because it's taco day in the cafeteria.

This story, while not only a disgrace, is fairly well the case study of political power out of control.  Several core concepts of our God given rights are being violated in one remote location after another around the country because somebody in a government job gets a burr under their saddle regarding one thing or another and makes the determination that their job is to destroy the life of an American citizen in the name of obedience to the all powerful authorities.

Dig a pond? The EPA will be fining you your year's pay (or more) daily.  Hoist the American flag in a gated community?  The homeowners association will be taking you to court and fining you.  

At some point in time, it is right to stand firm and say "enough".  I think in western society, we have a tendency to be polite and back up to accommodate others and surely that is a polite and temporary grace that builds friendship and understanding until the accommodation becomes unneeded through mutual understanding.  Like bi-lingual signs:  they make sense at ports of entry and in immigration offices, but one of them ought to say something about where to learn English promptly so that peaceful integration can take place.  

There are objective standards that are rational and reasonable by which we live. Defending them is not anti-government or intolerant,  it's remaining true to a common standard so that there might be more peace.   But above all, the goal of honoring agreed tenets such as God given rights and social norms is to create voluntary cooperation and moderate conformity so that all might have maximum freedom.

Setting apart one group because of their claim to the right to offensive behavior, or punishing a rancher because of some scattered rare tortoise, or cracking down on an aging veteran for flying the flag - each of these are pernicious forms of erosion of the social compact which respects freedom and the laws that protect it above the whims of men, so that all might be free, is an attack on the fiber of our nation and on western civilization.

You can not maintain civil order, peace, freedom or prosperity by making all the slave to a few.  In any of the cases such as political correctness, environmental histrionics or authoritarian rule of law over peaceful order, the majority is forced to comply at the whim of the minority.  This is not freedom and this is not even civilization.  It is a degenerate state of existence known as tyranny.

Yeah, Agreed +Jamie Braly.  Just wanted to make sure we had all the facts.  I trust Anne's judgement too.  Does seem like if he's breaking a law that everyone else has to follow, the correct remedy is through the courts, not this parade of machismo.

True.  We do 4H.  Cows, pigs and now chickens are going up in price.  I know some 4H kids are shocked at the calf prices, and there are almost no piglets to be had with the virus wiping out herds left and right.  I suspect they will make it up during fair sales though.

I will say, I was in my local Kroger tonight and they must have made one heck of a special buy - pork prices were like last year December.

I guess I believe these movies will spread confusion more than they will help anyone think about the Jesus of the Bible. I mean with this logic, the movie Jesus Christ Superstar would be a good movie.

I hope this lady doesn't spend a day in jail.  What a ridiculous situation.  I'm glad she is out on bail - if the law passes they should drop the charges.  They should never have charged her anyway - she did the right thing.

The Florida Senate on Thursday approved the so-called warning shot bill, moving to significantly revise the state's self-defense laws for the first time since the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
