Arkleys to throw bash for Louisiana Gov

The invitation. Click to enlarge.

Eureka power couple Rob and Cherie Arkley are opening their doors for a private shindig to raise cash for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.  The affair will take place at their house in Baton Rouge.

Jindal supports the teaching of creationism in public schools and he calls it “science.”  He was a runner-up in former presidential candidate John McCain’s pick for running mate.

Mr. Arkley is focusing some monetary might in the Bayou State these days — including a kick down for a new business school facility at Louisiana State University.

Pray he has no say over the curriculum.

    What you have to realize is lousisana is a state where the majority of the people belive somewhat in creationism and or are not opposed to it. True neither “creationism” or “evolution” have ever been proven, my guess is the truth lays somewhere between both. Good job for rob arkley, Bobby Jindal is a rising star within the republican party, think of him as an indian, republican version of obama. atleast his celebrity persona would make for a good frontman. As the only indian i can think of to ever be governor, shouldnt we accept his new brand of republicanism? After all perhaps more candidates like him would give the GOP a needed facelift! also cheers for arkley being such a generous man and donating money to the local university. perhaps if we were more bussy sucking up to this guy instead of plotting to destroy his next move we could get more local charity from him!

    I thought Jindal had pretty much shot himself in the foot with the nationally televised response he made following Obama’s national debt address to the joint session of Congress. At that time both sides of the aisle pretty much panned his remarks…and yet, apparently he still lives!

    True, gravity has never been proven. It’s only a “theory.” My guess is the truth lays somewhere between both. It’s called intelligent falling.

    No surprise here. Arkley believes science is bendable to he will and money. He is a creationist! He is creating a so-called wetland right next a busy intersection in place of the salt marsh that was there.
    Presto change-o all the toxic chemicals are gone, all in the name of the Lord! the Dark Lord!

    Arkley’s money is everywhere. Here is a very small sample list:

    Ex-Senator George “Macaca” Allen
    Ex-Senator Rick “Rooster” Santorum
    Ex-Mayor Nancy Flemming
    Ex-Congressman Richard Pombo
    Senator John “Ethics” Ensign
    Bush.
    Cheney.
    Club for “Growth”
    The Republican Party
    Now Bobby Jindal.

    Google any of these guys. Go to newsmeat.com to see more. And remember, Jager, Leonard, and Jones belong on the same list.

    You are either with Arkley, or you are against him, and that is how he likes it. Who have I forgotten?

    Actually, evolution is being proven on a daily basis as more accurate a scenario for mankind than creationism. In fact, there are enough people who believe that creationism and religion were a result of the last catastrophic event that wiped out most life on this planet – that creationism and religion were created by ancestorial elitists who were in the beginning phases of propagating the rebuilding and re-population of the planet after such catastrophe in order to control people knowing that society would eventually evolve back to an advanced state of being many, many years later after the catastrophic event.

    Additionally, creationists and their war mongreling are just trying to keep their indoctrinized beliefs alive and well – killing in the name of GOD!

    Three Eminent Biologists And ‘Growing Pains” Kirk Cameron Weigh In On Evolution

    It’s an Onion article, but true. Child star Kirk Cameron is the most prominent spokesperson for creationists. It boggles the mind that Arkley would raise funds for a creationist. Welcome to Dark Ages II, this time only in America. The mass exodus of scientists continues.

    One day some enterprising pyschologist will write a case study on the disease that will be known as “Arkley Derangement Syndrome” (ADS).

    You know, I’ve finally “clicked to enlarge” on that invitation. I hope this isn’t a sign that I’ve come down with the dread ADS.

    Is it, um, legal to invite someone to your house for dinner and then demand a $1,000 donation for admission? I mean, obviously it’s perfectly all right to hold events where it costs $1,000 to get in. And there’s nothing wrong with rewarding donors with an opportunity to meet and show the governor who paid the bribe. But since the Arkleys are not charging anything for dinner, why can’t “invited guests” just make a donation of their choice (which might be none)?

    5:27, it’s not about the who’s going to govern Louisana, it’s about the political culture supported by the likes of Arkley and Jindal. We don’t appreciate that business interests control government.

    Success and greed are not mutually exclusive, but the issue is about protecting the rights of others from those who seek success or follow greed.

    Rob Arkley employees a number of people here. They go to work, fulfill their duties, and are compensated. Unfortunately, many of them seem so grateful they will believe anything.

    Thanks for raising some important questions. Y’all take care, now.
