Wisdom and folly

...ask for; you might get it, 2) What you don't ask for, you don't get, and 3) President James Garfield's lucid observation: "All free governments are managed by the combined wisdom and folly of the people." Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Prosecutor imperfection

...available to them, to minimize inevitable prosecutor imperfection. Maybe Mr. Botelho is just stroking the public to get a public relations rise -as if he was stroking the spine of a cat. If so, that explains a lot. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Simple decision

...silence and inaction, government feudalism and authoritarianism grow in substitution. Liberty and freedoms are lost only when enough people fail to execute the responsibilities that create them. What are you planning to do? Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Democracy needs you freedom to take without giving, such people are messing it up for others who care. They need to find out who they really are, instead. It's only when enough citizens participate that our form of government works. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Accept Weyhrauch's gesture of charity

...advice on receiving these funds if they aren't sufficiently competent to do it themselves? And arrange to deduct this apparently necessary extra cost out of their own pay? It would only be polite to the public they serve. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay

A same-sex marriage

...that one is infallible for being on the right side, and do nothing but pray or hope one's "enemies" are obliterated. Alternatively, let those willing enough to be different speak up for successfully solving problems. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Political parties and public funds

...graphic display of political hypocrisy anyone will see for years. Moreover, it shall be instigated by hypocrites guilty of - dare I say it - philosophical treason. Who can truly judge such immorality? Only the People can. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Cowardice in Senate race

...writings of the great thinkers and observers of history, and then meditate on them like Napoleon suggested. I'll vote for the senatorial candidate who demonstrates the most courageous attempt at this, regardless of sins. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
Embarrassing conduct

...government. People will see what anti-American activity really is when elements of the federal government show by their actions that they don't believe in the principles and technologies of our democratic republic. Stuart Thompson Auke Bay
