|Fifty Shades Of Islam
Another day another endless debate about Islam and its various degrees of extremism. To the skeptic, it's equivalent to arguing over the strain of bean from Jack and the Beanstalk. Hello, it's a ...
|Fear and ignorance or reason and science.
For months before the election, I cried to anyone who would listen that the nation had an important choice to make. Fear and ignorance or reason and science. It was easy because the choice should ...

|Florida Governor asks nation to pray...

|What I hope President Obama does tomorrow.
President Obama, please do the following tomorrow: 1. Reject Keystone 2. Humane immigration reform. Go big. 3. Remove cannabis from the schedule 1 narcotic/illicit list 4. Pardon non-violent ...
|Where do skeptics go?
This will be a short and, imv, serious question for the Democratic Party. Where do we skeptics go? Depending on the source, about 20% of Americans have no religious affiliation. That's a significant ...
|Chris Matthews got the memo.
There's a reason I like Matthews. Great show today. Hardball's main thesis tonight was the climate denying GOP. David Corn was strong combating the GOP mouthpiece on the program. David Corn, next ...
|Time for new Democratic party.
How's this sound? The Democratic Reason and Science Party. Feel better? Ignorance not allowed. Everyone says that both parties are broken. The democratic party can't get folks to the polls, even ...
|Fear and Ignorance or Reason and Science (and EBOLA)
I've screamed that today's political choices are clear as well as startling. America has a choice to make regarding its future. We will chose reason and science, or will we choose fear and ignorance?

Caltech and The Feynman Lectures Website are pleased to present this online edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics. Now, anyone with internet access and a web browser can enjoy reading a high ...
|We never had a chance.
It was over before it started. Jesus won. Kos lost. Kos didn't realize that jesus is the straw that stirs the crazy drink. Can't you see that? Remove Jesus and their house of cards collapses like a ...
|And now for something completely different (Denver and pot).
I'm 50 years old. In all my life, I would have bet EVERYTHING that pot would never be legal in the United State. I was wrong, halleluiah. Anyway, I want to experience the joy, myself. So, tomorrow ...
|Don't be fooled by another 'Obamacare horror story'
Tennessee's Marsha Blackburn caught in another lie. She should be a case study on ignorance, deceit, and winning elections. How does she do it? Remember Emilie with Lupus "whose $57-a-month plan ...
|15 year old Russian skater Julia Lipnitskaia and Duck Dynasty
Her hobbies include horse riding and drawing. The pig below believes that men need to marry their wifes by age 15. If they wait until they are 20, they won't be good obedient wives. I bet OBL ...
|Is It Time To Short America?
When I was seven or eight years old, marbles was a favorite activity during recess. Many of the boys my age would come to school with a pocket full of marbles. By the end of the school day, we'd ...
|healthcare.gov update (good news)
You may recall I was hyper critical of the initial roll of healthcare.gov. I first tried to enroll on Oct 2nd. It was a disaster. I said so. It wasn't appropriately tested. A lot of harm was caused. ...
|Remember when the oil well was leaking in the gulf?
When the plan was developed to drill to the well to cap it, President Obama decided that a second plan (a backup) was needed in case the first plan failed. Flash forward to today. Does he have a ...
|Speaker Boehner, you can be a hero.
A real American hero. Really. I'm assuming you sincerely want what's best for the country. And that it hurts you to see the poor and middle class suffer, so. If that's not true, stop reading. You'll ...
|healthcare.gov: another day, another disaster.
After trying to enroll in healthcare.gov for a week (Tennessee), It's still dysfunctional. Errors, time outs, page down for traffic, page down for upgrade. Registration complete. Registration not ...

We have two weeks to save the United States. I'm calling for every atheist, skeptic, scientist, university professor, the black community, and any one else who can clearly see what is at stake. We ...
|Week one, still no access to healthcare.gov for states with no exchanges.
Massive fail. A week wasted. What will they claim after week two, then week three? I predict they will have to shut it down and start over. I've been there. This isn't about users, or volume,or "...
|healthcare.gov Has even one American registered?
Seriously, has there been one verified success at healthcare.gov? Has one person actually purchased insurance? Viewed their plans and costs? Honest question. I'm specifically referencing the ...
|Don't give in the the GOP liars by reopening the parks.
Tennessee is home to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. It is the most visited national park in the country. Fall season is here and the trees are turning. It's a very busy time of the year. ...
|"We don't want to shut down the government."
GOP lying point of the week. "We don't want to shut it down, Obama wants to shut it down." And the bobble head media sits there and allows that bold face lie to be repeated over and over. Allow me ...
|Why does Yahoo keep deleting my comments?
There is an article linked at yahoo regarding the hidden cost of Obamacare. Nowhere is the link to healthcare.gov. I attempted to link the site since there is so much misinformation that is allowed ...
|I've concluded that the GOP want to collapse the government.
They will not negotiate on the debt ceiling. The river of hell that Speaker Pelosi spoke is real, imv. It's time to plan for this disaster and all the possible outcomes including a financial collapse.
|Feeling a little worn down from all the politics?
Need a charge on hump day? Maybe clear your mind for a few seconds? Want to feel good about America? Please watch. I get as pessimistic as the next person. Having to experience the daily assault on ...
|IRS scandal, probably not.
I live in Tennessee, somewhere between Raccoon Valley and the Cross-eyed Cricket. I'M not the most beltway savvy person. But I've had a real job for the past 25 years. I've worked for some of the ...
|Flatter tax is the solution.
President Obama, get started on a flat tax for everyone. Have 2 or 3 tiers, but a flat tax for each person. No more deductions. Set the rates appropriately. No more complicated BS for you to trip ...
|It's official: The civil war has started.
Each day forward, it keeps getting ratcheted up, little by little, day after day. We passed the point of no return several years ago. Like the calm waters before the waterfall, too many failed to ...
|Baby dies from whooping cough in Orange Co.
Coincidence? I don't think so, not anymore. ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Orange County health officials said a baby died from whooping cough last week. This is the first whooping cough death the ...
|Drones, I have no problem with them.
The current "drone war" is the war that Team Bush should have waged. Lets review. Cost: drones vs invasion and occupation. Slam dunk. American deaths: numbers killed and injured. Slam dunk. Iraqi ...
|If we had 500 thousand angry citizens..
..standing outside the senate chamber we'd get real gun laws. If we had 500 thousand angry citizens standing outside the facilities of "media" sources that spout propaganda and hate, it would stop. ...
|Ammunition explodes in Knoxville fire.
Another unforeseen problem with hoarding ammo. Hell fire! We desperately need the media, the scientific community, and politicians to speak, and speak forcefully against the anti reason, anti ...
|So I go into my favorite pizza buffet.. (updated)
And I notice man with a gun hanging out of his pocket. He wasn't using a holster of any type. Anyone could have grabbed the gun as he was loading his plate. If he had a permit and/or special training,
|GOP house of cards collapsing?
Lets hope. A party that denies science, evidence, and math has no future. The latest fiasco by the NRA was just another example. Their "press conference" was poorly crafted, poorly delivered, angry, ...
|When will the grown ups start acting like kids?
I've coached youth basketball for many years. So sometimes I find myself screaming at the television, "You idiot, my 11 year olds have more dignity and self respect than you do!" They are certainly ...

Are there any studies regarding the risk reward of owning high capacity weapons? I've never researched the data, but I'd imagine owning these types of weapons more often than not results in ...
|Maria Bartiromo on CNBC
Did anyone else just see her sickening rant defending the rich and their low taxes? She was arguing that the rich would simply find ways to protect their money, so it was useless to even try to ...
|The myth that Team Obama promised unemployment under 8.5%
I get sick of hearing the lying GOP continue to spread this myth. The next time you see or hear this, point them to the PolitiFact check of "Mostly false." We're certainly not going to try here. ...
|Is It Time To Press?
In basketball, there comes a time in every game when the coach has to decide if he should have his team press. "Press" means to extend the defense, apply pressure, take risks. It doesn't mean panic, ...
