Re: “Advances in gay rights

I would like to thank Max for stating the obvious;
those of us to the left of moderate can go elsewhere.
We have.

Re: “The line is open

In case you’ve missed it: #OccupyXmas



You’ve been sleeping on the streets for two months pleading peacefully for a new spirit in economics. And just as your camps are raided, your eyes pepper sprayed and your head’s knocked in, another group of people are preparing to camp-out. Only these people aren’t here to support occupy Wall Street, they’re here to secure their spot in line for a Black Friday bargain at Super Target and Macy’s.

Re: “Another week begins

Some of you may remember the Stuxnet worm unleashed by unknown western nation states to attack the Iranian nuclear infrastructure; that chicken has come home to roost. The MSM is now reporting the attack on the Illinois water utility, as though it were the only one.

Even the CERT is involved.

But the main concern for those in the know is the down-play with which the press is spinning it.

Re: “Arkansan sprayed in Oregon protest

Sometimes Humans are confused.
Some seemed to have missed the point, I am not from an Alternate Universe; I’m from the Dark Universe, the Universe where humans are evil, this Universe.

In “Chain of Command” (the second episode in the series' history to earn a parental advisory disclaimer) Captain Picard is tortured by the Cardassians (not the Kardashians). Picard reminds his torturer that “When children learn to devalue others, they can devalue anyone, including their parents.” The Interrogator responds that “my daughter will never worry about going hungry.” Picard observes “Her belly may be full, but her spirit will be empty.”

This is what America has come to.

Re: “Wall Street's man in the Senate

“it is always easier to fix a known system and known faults
than write a totally new one with who knows how many loopholes”


Apple thought different.

Re: “Renauds' camera smashed in Occupy Wall Street protest UPDATE

“entirely peaceful assembly”



And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Matthew 21:12-17 (KJV)

Re: “Legislator: State-paid Bible classes sent to attorney general

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion . . . ."

I suspect that the key here was religion should not be respected,
however; if we wish to play this game…

Perhaps we refer to the illegality of polygamy; in violation of the Mormons, Muslims & many other religions. Or perhaps the reference is to the imbibing of psychoactive substances as sacrament or aid in a vision quest; in violation of Native America beliefs, South American Native beliefs, African Native beliefs or Rastafarians. We could go on…

This before we begin discussing whether “Blue Laws”, et cetera violates the religious beliefs of Secular Humanists.
