Shown Hannity and Russ El Brand Bitching on Hannity Show and iPad: Hannity Jealous of Russell's Digs and Relaxed Appearance

This is below below the belt and the host proves himself once again a pathetic excuse for humanity, a racist, homophobic, anti-abortion, anti-birth control, anti-preventive health for poor women Porsch Catholic whose only contribution to sane debate on issues is serving as proof of how not to do it. The goon show follows, with silly saps like Bernard McJerk putting down Russell Brand for his appearance (duh! argumentum ad hominem). Then McJerk assumes the not yet proven, that Brand is…See More

"Justin Bieber is Gay" -- 12-Year-Old Fan

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 8:16am 2 Comments

When my little friend Lilia told me of her heartbreaking shift in affections from Justin to One Direction's Harry Styles, it simply broke my heart. I had just begun to appreciate Justin. Who is this Styles guy? A name like that, you'd think he was a fashion model, but he comes off as a scruffy kid with a lot of energy. About the only thing the two have in common is tattoos. Harry does not have that fabulous Bieber chest, abs, and tattoos. Justin has more of them. I guess. Lilia, when asked…

George Will and the IRS: Conservative Ideology Blinds Pundit to the IRS's Biggest Problem: Underfunding Their Watchdog Operations

Posted on May 2, 2014 at 10:37am 2 Comments

It is a talking point on Fox and at the conservative caucuses that the IRS should be abolished or replaced with a more equitable taxing system such as ad valorem, no matter that institution of the latter would result in many if not most of us sleeping on discount off-brand mattresses while the Koch Cabal buys the major mattress factories (if they do not already own them). My interest in George Will as a spokesman for the Cabal (my word for the 1% owning 40% or more of the wealth) was dormant…

Meeting William S. Burroughs

Posted on January 19, 2014 at 10:00am 0 Comments

A friend took me to a dinner at the home of a Manhattan dowager who turned out to be the agent there for the paintings of Brion Gysin, Burroughs' co-conspirator in magickal displacement of time and space known as the cut-up (slicing pages of a manuscript in half or quarters, then, John Cage-like, rearranging the pieces in such a way that they create in a kind of Flash Gordonesque, Hegelian manner, new messages, some actually predicting future events. I had long been fascinated by Burroughs,…

On Euhemerism, Yesterday & Today: Jesus, Elvis, and Antinous: Is Bieber Next?

Posted on July 23, 2013 at 11:30pm 3 Comments

While studying the occult for about a decade prior to becoming an agnostic, I read H. P. Blavatsky, Manly P. Hall, and, most valuably, Gerald Massey.  Blavatsky and Massey were sober critics of Christianity; the former became famous for saying "there is no religion higher than the truth," and the latter explored the death and resurrection myths that went into the making of the myth-in-chief: Jesus.  Blavatsky pointed out the similarity of the name, Krishna, to the name Christ, and Massey…

Something is Rotten -- Very Rotten -- in the State of Texas

Posted on July 12, 2013 at 10:30am 1 Comment

I've always maintained that so-called pro-life advocates for the unborn have little science to back up their cockamamie theories concerning abortion and rely, in most cases, on religious intolerance, bigotry, and slavish devotion to dogma. All three of the solar phallic monotheisms, the Abrahamaic faiths, preach male dominance and female submission, paternalistic hegemony that by now should be consigned to the dust heap of history. Allowing a woman to have total control over her bodily…

Self-expression is individuality, and our individuality is our self, which ought to be our chief concern.

Thanks for the comments James.

Good to know about Osteen, the #1 Fraud in America today. Can we call Chopra #2? Pun intended.

James, in case you are interested in discussions on this topic:

Justice For All

Justice For All

Atheists have our own ideas about what is just and what is unjust.  This group will explore the elusive concept of justice.  Topics include racial injustice, death penalty, imprisonment, crime, and other aspects of justice in modern society and in history.  Without gods, what is the basis for justice?  What do humanists and others say about justice?  What do you think about current controversies and cases regarding justice or injustice?
