nonplussedbyreligion: nonplussedbyreligion: deanpepin: “After reading this blog for a period of time, more and more atheists feel as if they have been deceived by those who led them to atheism. They have not been told the truth by their College Professors, atheist friends. Other atheists have not disclosed to them relevant facts about the Bible, and they feel terribly deceived. I am here...
liberalsarecool: Paul Krugman: Republicans know government spending creates jobs; they say so every time there’s a chance military spending will be cut; they just don’t want you “to know what they know, because that would hurt their larger agenda — keeping regulation and taxes on the wealthy at bay.” A few years back Representative Barney Frank coined an apt phrase for many of his...

Mom Upset About Religious Haunted House →
abaldwin360: hatefulatheist: I’d be pissed, too! PASADENA, TX (KTRK) — A local church is using a haunted house to get what it says is an important message across. A local mother says her children not only heard the message, but they saw it as well — and she is not happy about it. Linda Ybarra says she bought tickets to Hell House in Pasadena for her family this weekend. She didn’t expect that...

Is the Rebel Flag racist?
letterstomycountry: alexholzbach: I’ve seen this debate going around Tumblr, so I’m going to take a small poll. Although the confederate battle flag was originally a perfect square (used by the army of Northern Virginia), the rectangular one you see above is the most popular version of the flag. So here’s the big question: is the rebel flag racist? I’m going to a Florida State volleyball...

dcdecoder: From New York Magazine: The political genuflection to businessmen is so gauzy and generic that praise for a candidate’s private-sector acumen can often sound phony. But Mitt Romney is the real thing. He was, by any measure, an astonishingly successful businessman, one who spent his career explaining how business might operate better, and who leveraged his own mind into a...
stfuconservatives: I finally got around to watching Herman Cain’s new campaign video. Colbert has a pretty great take on it: “Herman Cain wants to be president of Flavor Country.” Herman Cain’s super slow creepy smile might take the place of Michelle Bachmann’s creepy Newsweek cover. Can someone make that slow smile into a gif for me? Also, I got the fucking ridiculous song (I AM AMERRRICAAAA)...

On Letting You Die
letterstomycountry: kohenari: About a month ago, I wrote a post about whether or not it made sense to let people die if they elected not to have health insurance. One libertarian blogger took issue with my basic assumption, namely that people want to live longer and, if they become ill and can’t afford medical care, ought to be able to seek treatment (even if doing so comes at my expense as a...

letterstomycountry: Recently, Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) spoke on the floor of the house in opposition to H.R. 358, the “Protect Life Act,” a moniker whose oxymoronic nature is clear to any medical professional who has experience working in the field of reproductive health. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, (D-Illinois), posted a transcript of her own remarks on the bill on her website. In her...
