Religious folks talk to God a lot

Taxes

Will more tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy really create more jobs? Highly suspect claim - they're not likely to build more product of there are so few people left who can afford to buy it.


Admit it - right-wing religion is a little perverted

This may be the best story of this ploitical campaign...

Santorum’s wife dated abortion doctor in the 1980s

Karen Santorum, the ultra-pro-life wife and mother of seven home-schooled children, has been the perfect complement to her husband, Rick, as he chases the Republican presidential nomination. On the campaign trail, the candidate often refers to her book, Letters to Gabriel, the story of the devoutly Catholic couple’s traumatic late-term 1997 miscarriage (the 20-week-old fetus lived two hours outside the womb). The couple opposes birth control as well as abortion, even in cases of rape.

But Mrs. Santorum, 51, apparently wasn’t always committed to the cause. In fact, her live-in partner through most of her 20s was Tom Allen, a Pittsburgh obstetrician and abortion provider 40 years older than she, who remains an outspoken crusader for reproductive rights and liberal ideals. Dr. Allen has known Mrs. Santorum, born Karen Garver, her entire life: he delivered her in 1960.

Education is uunder attack for a reason.

Why the United States Is Destroying Its Education System

A nation that destroys its systems of education, degrades its public information, guts its public libraries and turns its airwaves into vehicles for cheap, mindless amusement becomes deaf, dumb and blind. It prizes test scores above critical thinking and literacy. It celebrates rote vocational training and the singular, amoral skill of making money. It churns out stunted human products, lacking the capacity and vocabulary to challenge the assumptions and structures of the corporate state. It funnels them into a caste system of drones and systems managers. It transforms a democratic state into a feudal system of corporate masters and serfs.
Teachers, their unions under attack, are becoming as replaceable as minimum-wage employees at Burger King. We spurn real teachers—those with the capacity to inspire children to think, those who help the young discover their gifts and potential—and replace them with instructors who teach to narrow, standardized tests. These instructors obey. They teach children to obey. And that is the point. The No Child Left Behind program, modeled on the “Texas Miracle,” is a fraud. It worked no better than our deregulated financial system. But when you shut out debate these dead ideas are self-perpetuating.

Santorum strikes again.

Understanding the Bible...


Statistics show that most of the religious right have never really read the Bible - just trying to educate them.

They don't get it because they don't want to...


Romeny the winner!

Mitt Romney won the Iowa caucuses yesterday by 8 votes - 25% of all votes cast - just over 30,000 votes total. It got me thinking - and maybe that's dangerous.


Let's assume that American voters are 50% Republican - 50% Democrats - and that Iowa is representative of all America - just for the sake of argument. Now that means that Mitt's support is only 1/4th of Republican voters and only 1/8th of all American voters. Doesn't seem too impressive, does it?


Seen another way, let's assume that the population of the U.S. is 300,000,000 (3 hundred million) people - it is actually more than that, but just for the ease of doing the math, please agree with me. He got 30,000 votes which amounts to 0.01% of the population of our country. That's one one-hundreth of one percent of the population.


And what prompted my analysis is that Mitt was all over the morning shows today crowing like he'd won a major victory! Only 1/4th of the votes cast - not even a decent plurality - and he's declaring war on President Obama! Just 30,000 votes!


I don't care who he is inside - or what he really believes - for him to act like a major winner under these circumstances shows us that Mitt has one huge case of self-infatuation - a set of balls bigger than all of New York City. I have a real problem with people whose ego is that huge. A little humility would impress me a whole lot more.


Just saying.

Just trying to understand Republican thinking
