The Golden Verses Of The Stoic

Seneca and Epictetus refer to the Golden Verses of Pythagoras , which happens to provide a good framework for developing a daily routine, bookended by morning and evening contemplative practices. Zeno of Citium , who founded Stoicism in 301 BC, expressed his doctrines in notoriously terse arguments and concise maxims.  However, Chrysippus, the third head of the Stoic school, wrote over 700 books fleshing these ideas out and adding complex arguments to support them. 

Missouri... You have the Hammer!

I was just on a comment area, and the citizens of Missouri were talking as if this is beyond their control until the next election.

MIssouri! Look at your Constitution! You Are RAMBO in situations like these - more than any other body of government in the whole UNION, you have absolute power in this situation. I just pulled the the statutes. The last two posts have them.

YOU have a part that says, (paraphrased) "Yes, we accept the US Constitution as it is, right now... but... IF you add something.. we reserve the right not to accept that. We'll look it over and get back to you."

You have a STATE Gov. Wipeout button.... yes. Total removal of all state government, including the constitution. And then, you have in the Statues, the power to run your state from that point... has to be in the statutes, because the Constitution is gone... see how that works?

Do not wait because you feel you have no power in this situation. YOU have ALL the power in this situation.
