Atheist News Podcast Project




Hey guys.

I probably shouldn't put this off anymore, so I'm just going to jump on it and improvise. I'm pretty sure the show is over. It was a ton of fun doing it, but with work and my son and my wife in school I simply don't have time to do it anymore.

Other folks have offered to take over but I don't really feel comfortable with that. Quit while you're ahead, sez I.

Anyhow, I payed for another year of hosting, so the archive of podcasts will be available for at least that long.

I really enjoyed podcasting, so I might do something again in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks guys and gals! It was AMAZING.

Love,

--Joe

those people are total assholes.  if the Michigan voters continue to support them, what does that say about the voters?

This goes beyond obstructionism and into whole new territory ... or maybe I should say, "madness."  WTF, indeed.

"Why is religion getting a pass?"

From article, here:  http://www.atheistroundtable.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=mdmc5go3....

Republicans in Michigan senate turn a Democratic no-bullying bill into a Christian pro-bullying bill and pass it!  Must read.

Comment by Geoffrey Goodwin on October 29, 2011 at 11:55am

After all this seriousness, a bit of levity quite out of context.

Have you heard of the dyslexic, agnostic, insomniac who laid awake all night wondering if there really was a dog.

Comment by Geoffrey Goodwin on October 28, 2011 at 6:37pm

When the US forced world wide free trade too fast, it opened the opportunity for US corporations to export a vast number of US jobs and technologies to third world low wage countries. This enabled the corporations to greatly increase their profits, in the hands of a smaller number of individuals.

The corporations then moved their headquarters to low tax or no tax offshore locations, so that the profits they made could be distributed tax free.

This has caused a loss of intellectual property, huge unemployment, the concentration of wealth in fewer and fewer individuals and a great loss of tax income, hence the the country's unsustainable debt burden.

Just where the blame lies, the administration? The Federal Reserve? the big banks? Wall street or the corporations that have abandoned the country is debatable.

I think that stupid trade decisions by various administrations, greed on the part of corporations, bad control of the money supply by the Fed. and poor lending practices by the banks have created the perfect storm which will result in hyper inflation and the replacement of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

I'm also bored by empty threats of revolution, I want the real thing... down with corporatism and police brutality.
Comment by Joan Denoo on October 24, 2011 at 9:28pm
"I'm not moving" presents the reasonable, thoughtful, compassionate words of our government and the photos reveal hypocrisy of the highest order.  In the 1960s I marched in Washington, DC, peacefully, and was hit up the side of my head by mounted police with billy clubs. A real radicalizing event.

If they're not pissing on your lawn, what's the bitch?
Comment by TNT666 on October 24, 2011 at 12:46pm
vaguely and peaceful go hand in hand... if the protesters got specific you can sure there would be more violence. It is the illusion of our Western democracy, as long as you are vague in your criticism, you are quite safe.
