    Nothing quite like the scent of putrefaction playing on a wistful zephyr, to evoke a sense of spiritual communion.

    You seem to like odd locations. But the Anemoi were known to be capricious.

And unlike some issues like global warming where there actually are sensible republicans, they almost all seem to subscribe to taking care of the rich before everybody else.
    Yep, wealth just trickled up which is evident looking at the Gini Index.

    What does the war on inanimate substances have to do with Jesus?

    That's exactly what I'm talking about. It doesn't have anything to do with it, so they should keep their religion out of it.
