“Well, if you think about it another way, maybe lying to the public is what any and every elected official does because we the people, evidenced by how we vote, are so freaking ignorant. We believe in superstitions, not scientific method, we believe in gossip, not facts, we follow kardashians like trout on the line but we can't be bothered by health care, prison reform, human rights or a host of other issues except to spout buzz words that we stock up on from Fox News, that only make us angry. We don't know why we're angry but, boy, howdy, are we angry. The gummint's fault.
If we could spice up government, get people to follow it like they follow football, maybe we could hold some of these politicians feet to the fire.”

“"Free exchange of ideas"? Really? They're going to allow students to question the bible? To contemplate how it might be misleading or wrong? To question it's validity? Seriously, if students start a debate and start agreeing with each other that maybe taking the bible literally is detrimental to their lives, you don't think that would get squashed immediately? And whose bible would they push? No matter what version they might use, there is going to be a large segment of the voters who will want a different version used.
The creationists don't want kids to question the bible, they want the kids to learn the bible as the truth so that they can question evolution. Suggest teaching evolution in Sunday school to give the kids a balanced look and see how well that is received.”

“If your insides were made of the same materials as your computer you would have a legitimate point. I doubt that any hot vegan meal dumped on your keyboard would do it any good. Glass of wine? A bean and cheese burrito, really anything you eat or drink is not going to do your electronics any good if you try to share.
You can make all sorts of arguments as to why soda isn't good for you but the argument that it isn't good for your computer therefore it must not be good for you, isn't one of them.”

“OK here it is then, you're a cynic. Why do you have to go to the dark place on a story you have no personal insight into. Why can't you just enjoy the story or at least keep your dour-ness to yourself and let the rest of the world enjoy a moment? When you go into a beautiful garden do you turn over every rock to see how many slugs you can find? Smell the roses, don't look for excuses to bleed from the thorns.”

“It used to be so funny watching people get so defensive about Joe McCarthy. Everyone knew he was just a loudmouth. But people just got their panties in a bunch so easily when they listened to him. It was so amusing the way he would spew violent and hateful accusations that would goad others into despicable acts. So humorous.”

The Perils Of Skepticism

“Dear Becky16
Determination is a trait that has to be combined with direction before you can decide whether or not it is an honorable trait. It's like saying I love my gas pedal in the car. I press it and the car goes. But if I am not steering then accelerating is very dangerous, innit?
Nothing in life is one dimensional.
Drive without purpose, persistence without direction, passion without contemplation. Think about it a minute and add your own.”

"Invisible Car" Art Fades Into Its Environment

Commented May 8, 2009 at 17:18:42 in Green

“I'm glad RightWingMarine finished with "really impressive though". That almost gets him (or her) off the hook. But "someone has too much time on their hands" is a trite, knee jerk reaction from people with no developed talents. And it's kinda funny that you don't hear people with artistic talent ragging on people who show no artistic talent. It's always the other way around.
It's ok if you don't get the art, don't agree with it, don't think public money should be spent on it or a whole host of other reasons to not like art, artists or anything linked to the art world and the beauty that comes from that world. But to disdainfully blow it off as a waste of time is not your call and it just belittles you along with the person trying to do something out of the ordinary.”

“Dukesman, watch someone being waterboarded. Several people holding a bound captive and inflicting pain and fear. How do you feel when you watch this? Does it make you feel all tingly? Do you get excited?
If you can watch this sort of sadism and it does not turn your stomach, something is wrong with you.
It's not about usable information. There never is any. It is perverted and most Americans don't want it to continue. And I suspect that most who do haven't really considered the full story.
They are just afraid. And they think Jack Bauer will save them if the ACLU doesn't lock him up first.”

Poll: Are Radio Stations Right to Censor the Eagles?

Commented Mar 8, 2009 at 12:12:11 in Entertainment

“Hey, I love the music and I hate censorship but for those of you who keep bringing up the notion of freedom of speech, you need to understand that that is a freedom we enjoy from government censorship not private censorship. Read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It's actually quite interesting stuff. You might be surprised at how clear and straightforward it can be with a little study.
Keep fighting the good fight and let those radio stations know you don't like them to mess with the message of the artist but keep your argument relative. This isn't a constitutional issue.”

“ALP, your comment is too simplistic. President Lincoln's personal opinions on race relations were the products of his culture and his times. He overcame his personal feelings that the slaves were inferior and looked at what was his bigger picture, that the slaves were human beings.
We all say "I believe "this"" but people with open minds say, "I believe "this" but I will listen to reasonable alternatives and examine the possibility that I may not have all the answers." Life, thinking, progress all take a little effort. Blind belief does not.
Lincoln looked past his own feelings and saw the greater good in the big picture. Truman looked past similar personal views and tried to integrate the armed forces. LBJ, a good ol' boy from the south, looked past his personal biases to promote civil rights.
These are examples of strong-willed, opinionated people who held on to that tiny little concept that maybe theirs was not the only way besides the highway.
Lincoln would have looked at our current President and, while he might be surprised, I think he would have assumed that we have come a long way in the last 150 years.”

On Veterans, President Obama Off To a Great Start

Commented Jan 20, 2009 at 19:37:05 in Politics

“To all you neo cons and big fish who think you are so clever in trashing this man, you need to get a grip and look around you. Yours was the party of exclusion. This is the party of inclusion. You sarcastically want to know when he does one thing. Look around. He has provided a much needed sense of hope. And that is a soil that good things can grow in. Gloom and despair and tearing down others doesn't create anything good.
So this story says there is a White House web site that indicates what it wants to do for vets. That might not sound like much but it's more than the vets got in eight years of the last guy. And if they don't follow through we will be there calling them on it. But let's not give him too much crap until he actually deserves it.

“There is a big difference between the politicians that we elect and the holy men who rise to the top of their profession.
The successful politicians know how to compromise to get something done.
The holy men are con artists. They may be fooling themselves in the process but they are hucksters, none-the-less.
By their own rules blasphemy is using God's name in vain. That does not just mean swearing as in cursing but in swearing as in when you put words in God's mouth and claim to have a direct two way communication with him.
When you tell a congregation that you know what God will do, you are a liar and a con man.”
