History is a funny thing. The more I live through the more out of touch with history I have become. There was a time when a first person account of a historical event was deemed primary evidence when assessing both the event itself and the implications that followed from the event. Now eye-witness accounts are treated as 'anecdotal evidence' as if they were some story I made up about what happened even though it happened in front of my eyes and to me. Unless they mesh with the received…Continue
“Ranting about ‘white male workplaces’ ignores the realities of class, personality differences and poor management practices.”

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
The internet is once again abuzz over the latest atrocities committed against US citizens and diplomats by thugs intoxicated on a belly full of the religious hate being force-fed to them. Over in the West the debate, at least the intramural one in the Western world, seems to be centered around what is the proper burden level of blame the country responsible for this video should bear in all this. Being the country responsible equals being the eminent domain owner of the dirt upon which…Continue
Romney and Ryan believing in a god would be nothing remarkable: but is it not the case that both believe in a real, active, in-this-world Devil named Satan ? Or am I confusing theMormon cult with the Moonie cult?
Most believers in radical Islam also believe not simply in the reality of evil, but the reality of a personality named "Satan" or some equivalent.
Motto: if there is no God, hope eternal that there is no Devil
“..a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them free to otherwise to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.”
Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801
There’s no debate about what “religious…Continue
The most questionable part of Romney is not his ethics, or whether he created or destroyed jobs. It's his religion. A President's religion, if's he's a true believer, influences the way he sees the world and makes decisions. Did Dubya think God told him to invade Iraq? To what extent does Romney believe all that nutty Mormon stuff?
I was recently fortunate enough to receive a copy of the Book of Mormon, courtesy of the Marriott Residence Inns. …Continue
In case you hadn't tried it, DemocraticUnderground.com (DU) is a popular liberal blog, with an occasionally good Religion forum for believers and Nones to try and discuss issues reasonably.
After I was banned from DU, I asked here at A/N, in this discussion, "Are Democrats locking atheists…Continue

Dennis Kucinich now that's a hard hitter!
from hedges conflicts with his last book about xtian fundies and fascism in America!?
guess whatever sells?
Today Romney made the arguement that classroom size does not matter. I am very interested in the average class size his children have sustained during their education. I believe this is another attack on education by the republicans to dismantle public school education in America.

I feel disgusted. You probably do too.
I watched this week's episode of Bill Moyers and Company with their guest, Marty Kaplan (found here: http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-big-money-big-media-big-trouble/).
In it, Marty Kaplan said; "People say they know it's a con, just as they say that they are not being swayed by the ads for products that they see on television. If…Continue
