It's quite simple in regards to Romney's past. (Hid from Vietnam w/Mormon mission in France!?)

Ah the old smoke and mirrors through faith-fronting-corporate offshore stuff has never been so clear aye?

Romney on Education

Today Romney made the arguement that classroom size does not matter.  I am very interested in the average class size his children have sustained during their education.  I believe this is another attack on education by the republicans to dismantle public school education in America.

How do you feel about today's state of the government and the politics that run it?

I feel disgusted. You probably do too.

I watched this week's episode of Bill Moyers and Company with their guest, Marty Kaplan (found here: http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-big-money-big-media-big-trouble/).

In it, Marty Kaplan said; "People say they know it's a con, just as they say that they are not being swayed by the ads for products that they see on television. If…

Disturbing trend in politics

I'll start off by admitting that I don't know how "new" this trend is, hence the reason I did not give it that qualifier in my title; however, it is something that has recently begun to stand out to me.

I've noticed a disturbing trend in politics of restating or informing people that alternate opinions or concerns exist, while at the same time saying and doing absolutely nothing to actually address them.

Example:  Fill out, create or sign any given petition on Whitehouse.gov…

A “True” Story Posted by My Grandfather to Facebook, or What Older Generations Really Think of Young People

A “True” Story Posted by My Grandfather to Facebook, or What Older Generations Really Think of Young People

 

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. 

The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's…

Religion and Politics: Does size matter?

Cain, 999, 666

Pizza up!  Is this business man going to continue being a mathmatician trying to solve the world problems?  My prediction, he is not going to last long.  I think when he is pressed to speak of policies other than money he will be off beat. For now he is singing the song 999.  How about that Michelle Bachman's comment "the devil is in the details", what a joke!

Atheist Does Not Mean Skeptic/Freethinker

Besides my joys of being skeptical of religion, I get much pleasure in applying the same skepticism to politics. Both are fundamental sets of beliefs with herds trying to justify their side and win people over by using those beliefs. They both use fear of "the others" and try to make themselves superior in all ways. So, why would an atheist leave one set of beliefs and pick up another set from a political party? (One that promotes a sense of superiority of all other parties and can save the…

Rick Perry, As We Say in KY: "Put Up or Shut Up!"

This may be less than timely, but whatever.

 

How many times does Texas Gov. Perry have to be snubbed by "the Lord" before he gets it?

 

April 2011, Texas is starting to suffer widespread drought for which there is no impending meteorological relief. Rick Perry organizes a "prayer" holiday for rain and the drought gets worse, continuing to this very day. Any good witch doctor knows you need to see the clouds building in the west before you schedule the rain dance.…
