Priest Off!

I thouhgt I'd share this little video as a tribute to the pope's visit to the US.

Condi's Gotta Go!

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice chaired repeated White House meetings approving specific torture techniques before they were used -- then lied about it to Congress.

And this is the person many neocons are touting for Veep? Well, I guess it makes sense... she'd be carrying on the lamentable legacy of Cheney, wouldn't she?

Watch the video and add your name to a list asking that Rice resign!

Another Stupid Dead Christian

Emma Gough, 22, of Telford, Shropshire, who was a Jehovah's Witness, died after giving birth to twins at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, the inquest heard.

She would not have a transfusion because of her religious beliefs.

Now here is a story I like. The idiot who refused treatment is the one who dies. Good riddance to colossal stupidity, I say.

Now what about those twins? Let's hope they are not raised with the same ridiculous beliefs. Can't say I hold out much hope for them though. If you read the linked story you'll learn that the family was involved in continuing to refuse a blood transfusion for old Emma, the Jehova's witness. Mathematically speaking, that means we subtract one idiot but likely add two more... one step forward, two back... oh well.

Obama Elitist?

"It's not surprising then they (small town people) get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations," Barack Obama said.

Doesn't sound elitist to me at all... it sounds about right. Although, I have to say, I am surprised a presidential candidate would utter such truths for fear of just what is happening... attacks from all sides.
