"Policy" Or -- DECISION??

Friends, we keep using the word "Policy" to describe the Atrocious, Aggressive and ABUSIVE requirements that are being Made and Enacted upon us by our elected leaders, officials, representatives. But the word "policy" renders the damaging rules, restrictions and denials to us as some nebulous, untouchable, uncontrollable "gas cloud." It is not Human, but just some THING. Friends, these are no such thing. What these "Policies" are, specifically, are DECISIONS - DELIBERATE, WITH INTENT, AND WITH INTENDED HARM DEFINED AND COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD when the DECISIONS are made.

It was hypothesized, in typical liberal environmentalist theorizing, that the custom of Hopi mothers of carrying their infant children strapped to their backs somehow caused those children to develop so much faster.

Thom: I wish that we could clone you, but short of that, we need to take back our News and whatever media. Get it out of the hands of 4 or 5 corporations, generally friendly to the Republican Party.

Polygamy doesn't work

Polygamy was created by the founder of the Mormon Church, Joseph Smith. He wanted to have sex with a young girl in the community so he created a story about the wife of a couple dying and going to heaven. When her husband remarries and then the new couple both die, in heaven the man has multiple wives. This history is reported in the book, No Man Knows My History, The Life of Joseph Smith by Fawn Brodie.
