Experience Counts

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

I’m still hearing a lot of McCain supporters claiming that Barack Obama is not qualified to be president, because he lacks experience. As we all know, experience is such a reliable indicator of the quality of the presidency. Speaking of Nixon, he was probably the first modern president to suck up to the current incarnation [...]

Phone Call from a Fundie

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

I am opposed to torture. How sad that we’ve come to a time in history when that needs to be stated. I also strongly believe that being free to choose your own religion (including choosing none, of course) is a fundamental human right that must be guaranteed throughout the world. I also believe that being [...]

Carnival of the Liberals #76

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

PZ is hosting the latest installment of Carnival of the Liberals. It’s an especially good one this time around. You’re going to want to go over there and read every article.

Expelled on DVD

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Expelled came out on DVD Tuesday.

Impeach Clinton

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

This isn’t the bumper sticker I was looking for, but it’s the only one I could find. This one came along a little later in the Clinton administration, because it specifically references Hillary. I was looking for one specifically about Bill. I saw the first “Impeach Clinton” bumper sticker in December of 1992. If you [...]

Obama Bingo

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

For the past two days, I’ve been trying to write an article about a certain crappy movie that just came out on DVD, but I’m also trying to cure my sleep disorder. Actually, that movie probably would cure my sleep disorder. Anyway, there is an inverse correlation between my frequency of posting and how much [...]

Brief Analysis of the Yes on 8 Side

Saturday, October 18th, 2008

To give you an idea of the tactics of the people who want to strip Californians of their rights, here are a few YouTube videos, along with a few of my comments. First up is one of the TV commercials. I have seen this one myself, so I know it is getting airplay on mainstream [...]
