Tooth-Level Micromanagement

Posted on September 19, 2017 at 4:30pm 2 Comments

You know how some religions try to micromanage your life - like press your head to the ground 45 times a day and eat this not that. You thought a secular lifestyle would liberate you?

Today I had to replace my electric toothbrush. The only models available with circular action are designed for corporate micromanagement of my brushing technique. There are none without such "features".

A helpful on-handle timer stutters every 30 seconds to let you know when it’s time…

The Past 5 GOP Presidents Have Used Fraud and Treason to Steer Themselves to Electoral Victory

Ford and Bush Sr. aren't directly accused here, just the benefactors of systemic corruption. Bush Jr.'s illegitimate  elevation is already widely known. The Nixon and Reagan treasonous deals with enemies surprised me.

History suggests – even if treason can be demonstrated –…

Poo Fools (us all)

Posted on December 25, 2011 at 2:01pm 47 Comments

Day after day I see Atheist Nexus members argue scripture details, spreading theistic memes here, without realizing their self-betrayal. Memetics still seems, to most, an abstract intellectual debate. We can't grasp religion as an infective agent. We can't see ourselves as merely copying machines for viruses.…

How do I look for famous visiting guest speakers when they come to Toronto.

It's part of Jeff Session's renewal of the failed War on Drugs and DARE program. Anybody that is accused or arrested of a drug related violation can have their assets confiscated. It is a huge civil rights violation since it doesn't require a conviction. Some police departments have been accused of using it for profit and Trump is a big fan of it. It's all over the news today. Some states have banned it without a conviction. A persons car or house can be taken all without a conviction.
