    I'm less concerned about faithfulness to an originalist perspective of the Constitution than I am about increasing effectiveness.

    Furthermore, the highlighting of smalll numbers of tax-payer funds going to eccentric research doesn't really do a good job of highlighting how often that actually happens. A good look at that would be found in James Q. Wilson's "Bureaucracy: What Government Agencies Do and Why They Do It."

    The only way people can ever have some control over government is when they live next to it, not when it's controlled from the other side of the continent, which is why there has to be more State rights and less power in Washington. The Senate should also be changed back to how it was envisioned by the founding fathers.
    Government works pretty well, considering the intentional restrictions we place on it.

    But again, I'm less concerned about the platitudes of "government controlling government" because they forget how much they do control the national government's functions.

    I think that everyone is grateful for those restrictions, given the history of governments of all sorts and the knowledge that "Power Corrupts". There should be an active and ongoing debate on what the people expect their governments to do, on all levels, and the clearly defined responsibi;ities of each. This was done at one time but the lower levels of government have lost a great deal of their powers since the separation of responsibilities began.

    But again, I'm less concerned about the platitudes of "government controlling government" because they forget how much they do control the national government's functions.
    Under the present administration Governments cannot even police their own borders or detain illegals within them.

    They are damn good in gumbo, which is one of my better dishes. My ettouffe is great too. I just haven't learned how to boil shrimp right. I boil crawfish that will make you slap ys msms, but shrimp? I haven't figured that out, yet. I know if you overcook them, they're hard as hell to peel.

    So would it be safe to say you would know the anatomy of shrimp and what we could possibly find in researching them?

    You know, eco, I've been watching you post this inaccurate definition of racism for months, now. Privilege is not a component of racism. The belief of superiority IS. The belief that discrimination should occur IS. Hatred or intolerance of other races IS. As one can see, ANY group, minority or not can be racist. The components of racism have nothing to do with who is in power. Racism by those in power has more bite to it because those who are in power can use their racism to create policies against those who they are racist towards, but that is racism in action as social/political policy. The concept of racism and the belief system itself can be held by anyone, regardless of which group they are part of.

    I had been been putting my shrimp on a treadmill before adding them to a recipe but found it toughens them up a little too much. Now I soak them in beer and put them in front of the TV for a few hours and that seems to tender them up a lot. Maybe another $3 million is available to study this further.
