The Meanest Flash Report Post of the Day

  “There are only two kinds of politics.  They are not radical and reactionary or conservative and liberal or even Democratic and Republican.  There are only the politics of fear and the politics of trust.  One says you are encircled by monstrous dangers.  Give us power over your freedom so we may protect you.  The other says…

Limbaugh’s “Phony Soldier” Comment vs MoveOn’s General Betrayus Ad: It’s OK to Criticize Troops if You’re a Republican

From a House and Senate condemnation of MoveOn.org’s ad to a denouncement of Rush Limbaugh’s “phony soldier” comments.  The difference; MoveOn stood by its ad and back it up with research. Limbaugh scrubbed his transcript and edited the soundbyte. But no condemnation of “entertainer” Rush Limbaugh.  Rush’s program is carried on Armed Forced Radio Network…

The End of America: A letter of warning to a young patriot

H/T to Claudio over at Orange Juice who has the story: Signatures Turned In! The effort to overturn the appointment of…

Wiley Drake & the Fatwa

Need I say more? Wiley’s retort to AU was swift, ferocious — and bizarre. Caught dead to rights, he didn’t even try to respond to particulars of AU’s IRS complaint. Instead, he immediately launched into the kind of wild-eyed, paranoid magical thinking you’d expect from any embattled cult leader. Which is to say: In a…

For gays in Iraq, a life of constant fear

I found this story in the LA Times on Saturday.  This is just one example of how religious zealotry can distort the true core beliefs of any religion.  Religion based hatred is not confined to any one religion.  My bringing attention to this story should not in any way be viewed as an attack on…
