Doesn't it seem as if you're just throwing your vote away sometimes? It seems like the rights of citizens are being subordinated to corporations. It as if we're living a life sentence in a subordinate clause, maybe, "...Yes master"
I was thinking today about how tasteless it was for NBC to run a Law and Order episode during Holy Week that involved a Christian stoning his mother to death because she was an adulteress. Especially since the whole stoning an adulteress topic is covered in so well in John 8 and the most basic tenet of Christianity is forgiveness of sins, since we're all sinners, saved by grace.

This next story comes last for a reason. I was talking to my sister last night. Here's an aside, from now on she'll be on speaker phone so I can keep my hands up by ears, at the ready. She told me about a man she knew who'd had a stroke. They were releasing him from the hospital but first they had taught him how to catheterize himself, a skill apparently he would need in his new life, even though he told her it was painful. When my nausea subsided enough to speak, I asked her, "Jody, why would you tell me a story like that?" She said that he'd told her. "Right," I shrieked, but he'd had a stroke!"
