Memorial Day 2013: Not for MY Freedom

"To lead an uninstructed people to war is to throw them away."

Confucius

“Youth is the first victim of war; the first fruit of peace.  It takes twenty years of peace or more to make a man; it takes only twenty seconds of war to destroy him.”

King Baudouin I of…

Reminder: 9/11 was about RELIGION

“Infidel, n.  In New   York, one who does not believe in the Christian religion.  In Constantinople, one who does.”

--Ambrose Bierce

 

 “If you believe in Judgment Day, I have to seriously question your judgment.”

--Bill Maher

 

 “If the kind of God exists who would damn me for not working out a deal with him, then that is unfortunate.  I should not care to spend eternity in the company of…

Suggested Obama Speech Draft: Muslims Must Learn Tolerance

Good evening. Tonight I speak, as always, to my fellow Americans…but also to the entire Muslim world, from those who think theirs is a religion of peace…to the perpetrators of the ongoing insanity of blasphemy laws, jihads, and fatwas – all of you who call yourselves Muslims.

I want to talk to you about the recent resurgence of Muslim insanity.  Actually, most of Islam is insanity, but the same is true of all religions, and that’s beside the point.

Sometimes Muslims just go…

Three Things I (Think I) Know About 9/11

Of the many, many things there are to know about 9/11, here are three that I hang on to.  Other suggestions are welcome.  What is not fact about 9/11 is voluminous: the Jews did it, the government did it, they hate our freedoms, etc., etc.  But here are three (proposed) facts:

(1) The horror could have been prevented.  Every indication is that the government knew about Muslim men being trained to fly planes.  It is common knowledge…

Thoughts of an August 9 Birthchild

“Hell no, we won’t go!”

60s anti-war slogan

It’s nice to have a birthday in the summer – guaranteed good weather (almost).  My early parties were well attended (everybody home from vacation) and outdoors.  But I know why seniors tend to disregard birthdays: as the number of enjoyed August 9ths gets more numerous, so does the number of anticipated August 9ths shrink.

As a speechwriter, I learned such obscure facts as my shared birthdate with Francis Scott…

MARS One! Is it wise to allow theists to be among the first people to populate Mars?

http://mars-one.com/en/



Is it really a good idea to allow theists to start a colony on Mars? I don't think it has come up yet at this early stage, but given the god delusions horrific past, can we risk starting a Mars cult or risk its destruction with mixed religions?



Check out the website if you don't know what I'm talking about, and there's a good FAQ page too.…

Iran Calls Wall Street Protests 'American Spring'

Do you see? This is why I refer to the protesters as a bunch of anarchist/pseudo-socialist/extreme leftists mixed with right-wing isolationist naive individuals which have now been taken over by labor unions and other anti-American left-leaning groups such as MoveOn.org. They are allowing such illegitimate regimes such as the Islamic Republic to mock our nation in addition to compare their "grievances" to the Arab Spring in…

Centrist Perspective: Ideals and Merit

The 10th anniversary of 9/11 has come and gone. Leftist liberals everywhere all seemed determined to make the worst possible interpretations of the U.S. response since that historic day. It was a pathetic display. It's rhetoric like that which has led to my becoming an Independent. I no longer identify with Democrats. I feel pushed to the center and now see myself as a moderate centrist. I'm simply appalled at the extremes of the left, just as I am at the extremes of the right.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper says "Islamicism biggest threat to Canada" & Tony Blair says "Iran is our Real Enemy"

It is refreshing to see that our northern border ally has too come to see the true threat facing humanity in the 21st century. It is also refreshing to see the visionary and bold former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom taking a clear stance against the illegal regime of the Islamic Republic - especially since he has strong influence with the Quartet - I am feeling more and more confident that the international community will soon stand more firmly with the Syrian people…

Sam Harris - Christian Terrorism and Islamophobia

Christian Terrorism and Islamophobia

image

At certain points near the extremity of human evil it becomes difficult, and perhaps pointless, to make ethical distinctions. However, I cannot shake the feeling that detonating a large bomb in the center of a peaceful city with the intent of killing vast numbers of innocent people was the lesser of Anders Behring Breivik’s transgressions last week. It seems to me that it required greater malice, and even less…

Beware of Islam

 

The recent "victory" claimed by the United States government, the killing of Osama Bin Laden, seems a good thing at first. However, it's really just another poke in the eye of this back and forth between the western world and Islam, (or maybe between Christianity and Islam?) A retaliation is sure to follow, that's just the way it works. So while the American people are celebrating in the street, I'd be running for cover.…

Dr Binayak Sen

Dr Binayak Sen

 

First, he is handed down life imprisonment under some 125 year old and obsolete sedition law and now his bail pleas stands rejected by the Chattisgarh  High Court. That is the funny case of Dr Binayak Sen's. The prosecution alleges that the searchers couldn't find a stethoscope from his place and he professes to be a medical doctor! How funny?

 

If a case is built on such findings then Mr Ramjethmalini's assertion that it was “a case of no…

Please help this important women's rights documentary get made!



Readers, you may have recently noticed on my sidebar a plea to help to Brooklyn-based filmmakers, Lana Wilson and Martha Shane, raise funds for their documentary "Trust Women," which takes a look at Dr. LeRoy Carhart and Dr. Warren Hern, two of the last physicians in the country who continue to perform late-term abortions. Whether they realize it or not, the directors are documenting the tale of two American doctors who stand up to terrorism everyday. I had the chance… Continue

Why Religion and God are Unnecessary in the Modern World

I was originally going to publish this at Associated Content but they don't give up front payments for opinion articles so I published it there under a non-exclusive license and will publish it else where including my blog.



Introduction

Beliefs in gods is as old as civilization as is religion. But is the belief in god(s) and religion necessary? Does it benefit society or does it harm society? It is my belief that a belief in god(s)… Continue

A moral dilemma

Back in September of 2009 I posted a story on my frethink.com blog regarding the pending deportation of an individual to his home country, a country that still lives by social codes common to the 1st century. Had he been deported he faced execution for apostasy. Laws against apostasy (renouncing the state religion) and heresy (speaking out against the state religion) are still common in middle-Eastern countries. I wanted to highlight this story because the injustice embodied in his story needed… Continue
