Separation

My philosophy is that government should stay the hell out of the religion business, and religion should stay the hell out of the government business. In America, the government does a good job of staying out of religion. The problem is that religion is constantly meddling in government business. I believe in separation of church and state, and any churches that don't should be taxed until it hurts.

Griping

Conservatives gripe constantly about bias in the media and indoctrination in the public schools. It's important to understand that they only have a problem if we're talking about LIBERAL media bias or LIBERAL indoctrination of public school students.

Prognosticating

Anyone wondering about Texas A&M's destiny in football starting next week might be interested in the season predictions at Good Bull Hunting.

My initial prediction is 7-6, based on the simple reality of no Manziel and no Evans, without whose performances several of the Ws in 2012 and 2013 would have been losses. The Aggie defense can't be worse than last year's bottom ten bunch, but how much better it will be remains to be seen. In 2012, Johnny Manziel was an unknown quantity who turned out to be the most exciting A&M player I ever watched. I haven't seen indications that Kenny Hill has the same potential, but judging from the little I have seen, he could be adequate in the Sumlin offense, especially if the running backs are fully utilized and the OL can help out.

The opening game against South Carolina will provide some clues as to what expectations are reasonable for 2014. Right now, I have that game penciled in as a loss, along with Alabama, Auburn, and LSU (all of whom beat A&M when Manziel was playing). I expect A&M to also lose two of the following games: Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Missouri, or the bowl game. I reserve the right to review and revise my forecast if A&M performs effectively enough to beat South Carolina.

It's a war.

Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama is only partly correct in his analysis. The Democratic Party isn't waging war on all white people, just the ignorant white assholes who vote for Republicans.
