Art 1 Sec 1 – Sen Mark Pryor (D-AR) Demonstrates the Obvious

Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR)

And piling on the Separation of Powers discussion, this piece today from Hot Air, detailing the fact that Senator Mark Pyror (D-AR) will most likely NOT support DiFi’s gun grab “this time” even though he did in 2004.

His reasoning? Simple… he faces re-election soon and supporting a gun grab bill may not sit well with his constituents.

So my question to Senator Pryor is simply this: was the bill Constitutional in your view in 2004? If so, has the bill changed into an unconstitutional variant? If it hasn’t, then you are DUTY bound to support it.

Is this not exactly what the Oath of Office to the Constitution and not to Party or re-election was supposed to do? It reminds us of why it so very important to ask the Constitutional position questions of ALL political office seekers and to get them to carve their positions in stone.

Where is Mark Pyror’s honor?

In 2015, Dave left radio to raise his son and helped to launch the Podcast 99 network (, which features voices and topics from all around the area, the nation, and the world, on a variety of subjects. Re-launching his own show as a podcast, Dave continues his look at the world around him, now without the constraints of terrestrial radio, but still with his eclectic mix of history and common sense. The primary feature element of Plausibly Live is Constitution Thursday, which since 2010 has been a weekly look at the history and impact of the US Constitution. Dave is a US Navy Submariner, a radio talk show host, father, baseball fan, avid reader and a frustrated writer.

Dave being promoted to FTB2(SS) in 1986. He was born in Oklahoma, grew up in Colorado, graduated from Ogden High School (Class of ’81) in Ogden, UT, served for eleven years in the US Navy Submarine fleet, was a Naval Instructor and as a Ballistic Missile Fire Control Technician, he achieved the rank of FTB1(SS) through sorcery and favoritism, but would have been happy staying an FTB2(SS) for life. He was trained as a targeting specialist and Battle Stations Missile Fire Control Supervisor aboard USS Michigan SSBN-727(G) and was trained on two Fire Control Systems, the Mk 98 Mod 0 TRIDENT and the Mk 88 Mod 1 POSEIDON. Later he served as a part of the Fleet Combat Training Center Dam Neck Auxiliary Security Force, which sounds impressive but was really just bait for Seal Team 6 and any Iraqi terrorists who happened to land on the beach in Virginia. He later attended Seminary in Atlanta, GA, then served as a pastor for five years before realizing the massive error of his ways. He then worked in non-Profit management until 2006 when he was hired to do sports for a local talk radio show, eventually moving into the host position in September of 2007. In the fall of 2008, after years of questioning and study, Dave completed the process of conversion to Judaism.

  1. Are you seriously suggesting that a change in policy advocacy is a violation of the oath of office? I’m going to garble the quote, but something vaguely like “no man should be ashamed to admit he was wrong, which is just another way of saying he is wiser today than he was yesterday”, by Pope.
    He never promised to enact all legislation that he thought was within the bounds of the constitution. Following the constitution amounts to a conditional, not biconditional, obligation.


    • Sorry, I hate double posting, but I really should clarify my last sentence: the obligation imposed by the oath is expressed in symbolic logic as a conditional, not a biconditional.


  2. No. I am seriously suggesting that the People of the great state of Arkansas should actually ASK Senator Pryor exactly WHAT his position is and WHY it is whatever it is. Clearly he is “flexible” enough to decide once that gun bans are fine and later that they are not. What changed his mind?

    In 2010 Steve Poizner ran for Governor or California as a Pro-Life advocate. Problem, his entire career he’d been pro-choice. He NEVER answered the question, “What changed your mind?”

    The basic point of what I have said here is that ALL politicians are failing to live up to thier word, they have and are failing to live up to the oaths and it is up tot he people to hold them accountable.
