Kansas The last half of July and the first days of August have been a whirlwind. Thank you to everyone who texted and eMailed or commented about the situation. I appreciate it very much.
I wish that I could tell you that everything is alright, and back to normal at last. It's not. And it will be - I imagine - several more weeks to months before things return to an even bubble.
That said, it's Thursday.
This week, the state of Kansas rejected a ballot measure that would purportedly have allowed the state Legislature to pass laws restricting abortion by affirming that the State Constitution contained "no such right (to abortion)."
The reaction has been predictable - the left and Democrats aren't just celebrating, they are seeing this as a predictor of what will happen in November. In some cases, it is being pointed out that "blood red" counties voted the measure down by two thirds margins.
The problem here is multilayered, but it stems from a basic misunderstanding of liberty and the impact of the original Roe v Wade ruling which was about privacy, specifically medical privacy.
And what may surprise you is that I would have voted against it as well, as would any liberty minded conservative...

WTF: She Speaks Okay The English It’s been a few weeks, but the Rabbi and the Friar are back after several adventures which includes Dave catching the Covid.

Nancy Pelosi says that the Archbishop who denied her communion is being hypocritical, while Kim Kardashian is trying to convince you to eat something that she herself refuses to eat.

What the Frock is back… at least for today!
TSV: Don't Call Him Sir! The Sub Vets are joined by Ryan Ramsey, former commanding Officer of HMS Turbulent to talk about merry old England, politics, submarines and leadership...
The Edge of Everything Somewhere around 13.5 Billion years ago, something happened that began the path to where we are today. I know that, like abortion, that debate is something that I will not change your mind about, nor will you change mine. The "Big Bang" is certain in my mind, because it is the BEST scientific theory* fitting the observed facts.
The recent release of the new photographs from the James Webb Space Telescope are nothing short of breathtaking. And they are reminder of what I have come to believe - that I do not need faith to tell me that there is a G-d. I need faith to tell me that in all of this I matter in any way shape or form.
And these days I find myself wondering more than ever, does it matter?

WTF: Alex Jones Lips Rabbi Dave goes to a casino and actually wins! So why is he having an issue with it? Meanwhile the Good friar pushes Dave’s buttons when it comes to callers to Talk radio shows, which was supposed to be a rant about “being crazy for money” on the air. That’s Dave’s pet theory for how people like Hal Sutton and Alex Jones get millions of dollars from stupid people.

If your nickname is “Redbeard,” you probably shouldn’t steal a parrot. Never trust a scientist, especially a French one.

The Jenner’s and the Kardashian’s are having a spat over lips, while one of their friends is wearing a new bikini that has some people, not Rod and Dave, upset. All this week on What the Frock?
WTF: Entemann's Chocolate Donuts Rabbi Dave is an a mood today. "Why?" the Good Friar Rod will ask? Because Dave had dreams that were smashed by his twelve year old son.
Meanwhile there is a bigger question. Is it actually possible that some of our political "leaders" really are as stupid as they sound? Or is it all just an act, because, seriously, you would have to be a moron to actually believe some of the things that they are saying in public.
John Hinckley, Jr... you know, the guy that shot the President... is having a tough go of things lately. He want to perform his original music at concerts for which people will pay him gobs of money, but the venues keep cancelling his shows because, well... he's still John Hinckley, Jr. Of course, you can probably guess who's fault this all is...
Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger. Who says so? Well... that would be the FBI. The same FBI that I am told is lying about everything else...
NASA is headed back tot he moon, but sans actual astronauts. It's a test of the new system that cannot be duplicated on Earth.
Meanwhile, Dave still doesn't have an Entemann's chocolate donut...
Brutus v Publius I have long held that the Anti-Federalist of 1788 is the ideological grandfather of today’s libertarian*. Many of the same issues of today find a distant echo in the complaints of the Anti-Federalists.

In those distant echo’s of the past are many ideas and knowledge points which both the Federalist and Anti-Federalist not only knew, but understood. Many of the things that would have stood out to the readers and listeners of 1788 were familiar to them, but to our modern ears and eyes, either make no sense or we simply do not even recognize them as meaningful.

Let’s start with the names.

The Federalists papers, written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, signed their papers with the nom de plume “Publius.” There were, of course, multiple reasons for this. The the use of a fictitious name removed the built in prejudice from the reader, either for or against the actual author. The name “Publius” was partially chosen to represent the idea, specifically “of the people,” reflecting the Federalist position that “We the People” had created and would operate the Constitution were it ratified. The name would have been seen as a bold claim that the people themselves were sharing this opinion of things. But there is actually a deeper meaning to the name.

For the same reasons, the Anti-Federalists adopted a variety of names and identities: Cato, John DeWitt, the Pennsylvania Minority, the Federal Farmer, and of course, our focus, Brutus. Unlike the Federalist Papers, some of the authors we now know, but many of them at which we are still, more than two centuries later, simply guessing.

Today we read these many names and arguments and we have lost the understanding that readers of both sides would have had in 1788. To gain back some of that understanding, we have to travel back in time to the Rome and the foundation of the Republic. It is here that we find two men, Publius Valerius Policola and Lucius Junius Brutus. More than two thousand years later these two men would inspire the writers on both sides of the ratification debate to proclaim their positions and beliefs.

In 1788, both sides and their audiences knew this history and what was being said…
