Thanks Whitney. I wasn't aware of that. Like I posted a friend sent it to me.
Just FYI, I did forward to some of the various groups I'm a member of.
I remember when these clowns crawled out of the sewers, gutters, ditches and cesspools and INFECTED the Republican Party starting back in 84. By 1992 with their PACs, wads of money and a bunch of sheep who would vote for who ever they were told to vote finally took over the Republican Party.
Funny thing. I knew the politicians were just selling themselves out for the money and the block vote. Even Daddy Bush. But considering the ass kicking he got back in 88 in the very first Primary by Crazy Pat Robertson he knew they were a potential hoard.
I walked out of the 1992 Republican National Convention saying, "The Republican Party has left me..."
However, I did know that the bible pounders also will go after each other tooth and nail. Like they did when McCain ran. Now they've got an off shoot,the "Tea Party."
Well the "bright" side to all this is that the leader they desire is "And world Peace" Falin...er...Palin...

Rick...it's just for the republican primary. I think they are just trying to make themselves look more idiotic (if that is possible) http://www.traviscountygop.org/outside_home.asp

"As with previous Republican Primary propositions or ballot initiatives, the five propositions below are non-binding; they are designed to determine how the electorate feels on certain issues. Overwhelming support for a proposition may lead to legislation being introduced in the future. This year the GOP is trying to push 5 propositions that further dissolve or impede our inalienable rights. In brief, they are: "

So, it could be a problem later but right now is basically just an opinion poll question.

Are any of you aware of this being on the March ballot? It was forwarded to me. Here's the message:

Proposition # 4 on the upcoming March 2, 2010 primary ballot reads as follows:

Proposition # 4 PUBLIC ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF GOD

The use of the word “God”, prayers, and the Ten Commandments should be allowed at public gatherings and public educational institutions, as well as be permitted on government buildings and property.

This is a for or against answer.

I didn’t know it was on the ballot until just now. Please pass the word. Even if you don’t vote for a candidate, you should vote for this.

I googled it & sure enough, here it is.

Ballot Proposition 4: Public Acknowledgment of God
The use of the word "God", prayers, and the Ten Commandments should be allowed at public gatherings and public educational institutions, as well as be permitted on government buildings and property.

Reagan, if you are going to be in Austin the weekend of February 7th, Dr. Jennifer Whitson is giving a lecture for the ACA called "The Perception of Patterns in the Noise of Everyday Life" (how the quest for structure or understanding leads people to trick themselves into seeing and believing connections that simply don't exist). Location and directions can be found here.

Reagan, small world. I guess you made it back to old Port Neches as a Teacher. It's great to hear that there are sane people teaching our children. I hope your doing well. Roger V

I’ve had a couple of friend who worked as prison guards.

Mostly they work at the “State” level but also one who works on the Federal level. Reading this news article just made me laugh.

A convicted rapist is an atheist. He's also open about it. At least the guy is straight forward about being an atheist.

You get a lot of prisoners who “find God” as a way to buy favor and make themselves look good to various groups and the parole boards.

If only my friends could sit down with the “Happy Band of Do Gooders” and let them explain EXACTLY what goes on inside, they might find more “productive” things to do with their “doing good” works.


Like look at internet porn…

But the best was when he filed a complaint about his “Cellie.” If you only knew how many times I wanted to do that with just some stranger on the street or those clowns who come knocking on your door early Saturday morning to “bring you to God.”

Well here’s the story and the link to the page.
Enjoy.

RAPIST’S whine at cell with Christian
AN atheist rapist has complained that his human rights were breached by having to share a prison cell with a Christian lag.


Barman Steven Relf, 40, was jailed indefinitely after admitting raping two women he targeted when he served them drinks in a pub.
Police branded him a "sexual predator" and said he could have had as many as 40 victims.
In a letter to an inmates' magazine, Relf wrote: "I recently had the displeasure of sharing a cell with a Bible-thumping believer."
A source said Relf was "furious" at having to share at Manchester Prison with the Christian convict and wanted him to be "evicted".
He said: "He moaned about how the guy wouldn't shut up about God. He said he wanted to speak to a lawyer about his rights so he could be moved cells."
The other inmate was later transferred.
