Scott DeLong replied to Gerald Payne's discussion Is the real reason for religios conservatism fear?

Autism, Asperger's and Atheism

It's a language barrier and social barrier that's rough enough to work through without the added ick of religious platitudes. Whether you have it, know someone who does, or are just interested in knowing more, all are welcome!

Hello Scott, I am happy to share a friendship with you and learn more about you. Although I share an aversion for the same people and their types as you, I have, perhaps, a more optimistic view on humankind and life in general. I have a great interest in politics, economics, humanism, and love to garden, read non-fiction books, especially history. I foresee some interesting discussions with you, although I am not a philosopher.

Tea Party Paper

Posted on May 21, 2015 at 7:30pm 1 Comment

I wrote this paper 3 years ago, in my Humanities 102 class. In this paper, I wrote about how the Tea Party was really a front for corporate america to sabotage Barack Obama's agenda.

            Over the past few years in America there has been a movement known as the Tea Party movement that is trying to bring notice to big government and wasteful spending through a grassroots style movement.  But is this truly a grassroots movement as the Tea Party claims they are?  There are major…
