The powers that be in the Republican party wanted a war, now they can help pay for it. The tax cuts they're enjoying were supposed to be temporary, so let them expire. To ask the poor & middle class to sacrifice their homes, access to healthcare, their social security, clean air and water and a decent wage so that the top 1% can keep an amount of money that wouldn't make a bit of difference in their financial health and well-being.. is depraved IMO.

It's pretty clear by now that although the Republicans and their Tea Party base screech relentlessly about the budget, that's certainly not their priority. In reality, their objective is to strangle and starve the Democratic party as outlined in the following excerpt from a Tea Party web site: "The Tea... Continue reading

A few weeks ago I joined a Tea Party web site because I like to hear what the "other side" has to say. Even if I don't agree with someone's basic philosophy I still want to know where they stand - you never know where you can find some common... Continue reading

The earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit Japan this week have all the armchair prophets spreading doom and gloom on the web. As usual, the religionists are going all Pat Robertson on us and blaming the victims: * "What God does is God's business. But I'll tell you this --... Continue reading

To my horror there is a new bill introduced in Florida that is seeking to get creationism taught in public schools. You know, like Kansas, the laughing stock of the country. The bill is HB1854. I wrote to my Congressman, Allen West (R-FL): * * * * Dear Congressman West,... Continue reading

Can you believe that the House voted to cut aid to Planned Parenthood? This bill is going to cost taxpayers $$million$$ in increased welfare payouts, and I am pissed. I decided to give my State Representative, Allen West (R), a piece of my mind <insert lame insult here>: * *... Continue reading

This is the second book I've read by Bill Bryson and he's quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. What makes his work so enjoyable to read is that it feels more like a friendly conversation than a history lesson. He sets the scene from his home, an Anglican rectory... Continue reading

Absolutely amazing! Their national healthcare system pays for a two-week trip to the tropics and 12 months of paid maternity leave - just for starters. Wait til you hear about their criminal justice system. Get yourself a copy of Rosetta Stone Norwegian and pack your Snuggie. Airfare starts at around... Continue reading

Remember this guy? He was the Roman Catholic Priest who was caught having a relationship with a grown woman a couple of years ago. It was a big scandal because evidently the Church finds sex between consenting adults more of an affront to their god than raping children. He left... Continue reading

I just finished reading Andrew Napolitano's NY Times Bestseller, "Lies the Government Told You." The author is a regular on Fox "News" and an anti-abortion proponent so I admit I began reading the book almost certain he would piss me off pretty quickly. Well, I did get my knickers in...

So Leon Walker rightfully suspected that his wife, Clara, was cheating on him. He confirmed his suspicions by reading her email, and then filed for divorce. Now, the Oakland County Prosecutor is charging Leon with violating Michigan's anti-hacking law for going Sherlocke Holmes on his own laptop - a charge... Continue reading

Comedian Ricky Gervais posted an article about his atheism on the Wall Street Journal web site. It's very well written and funny (of course), and it isn't even condescending to believers. Here's a snippet: This, is of course a spirituality issue, religion is a different matter. As an atheist, I... Continue reading

I hear this pretty often from theists when something tragic happens, like an unexpected death or a disfiguring accident, or even the loss of a job. Anytime something bad happens, they soothe each other with vague excuses about their god's master plan. It wasn't the bad economy that forced your... Continue reading

To the god-believers in the house: Being an atheist simply means a lack of belief in deities and the supernatural - nothing more, nothing less. I was born an atheist (as we all are), and after a brief period of belief as a child I shed what I felt was... Continue reading

If you are hyper-sensitive about your religion and easily offended, you may want to read this first. It might save us both some time and aggravation. Continue reading
