Judges 2: Attack of the Phantom Religious Menace

Friday, April 29th, 2005

Bring It On is excited about the opportunity to bring new voices into the conversation. Our Guest Author this week is Matthew61. His work can be found here. His blog is, in his own words, "Thoughts from a Baptist minister in Virginia who is trying to raise an alternate voice ...

Progressive Politics

Wednesday, April 27th, 2005

When people are introduced to politics they don’t usually get a couple of lectures on each type of politics and asked to decide which group they would like to throw their support behind. Many people never really hear both sides of the argument in a non-biased way. This is because ...

Activist Judges

Tuesday, April 26th, 2005

Yesterday I swapped cars with my wife. Since the AM radio on my car no longer works I found that I could surf the AM dial for the 40-some minutes that it takes to get to work. I listened to Rush for a while, but his obtuse view of the ...

Republican Party: Stabbing Rightward

Tuesday, April 26th, 2005

How far to the Right has the Republican Party moved?  President George Bush Sr. used to refer to the Neocons as  "the crazies in the basement."     Fifteen years later George Jr. is not only in bed with the Neocons, they’re doing kinky perverted things with him that Hustler Magazine ...

More Fair Tax Talk

Friday, April 15th, 2005

Thanks to Sally for the information. If you go here they tell you a few of the details. But, what they don't tell you is that the tax needs to be 33% on retail items to take in enough money to pay the current government bill. This would effectively raise the ...

Stringing the Beads

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

Ladies and Gentlemen, my light bulb just clicked on. Sometimes, working a puzzle can be frustrating. You have a clear idea of what your driving at, but can't find the right piece to pull two sections together or just to simply show you where you're headed. Blogging is the opposite. It's ...

A Total Disregard for Economics

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

Taxes are on my mind. That yearly (or quarterly) torturous ritual of going over your records and determining what you owe to cover the expense of living in a modern society. My pet peeve at tax time is how Congress has total disregard for economics. I don’t care what party ...

Proof that God Forgives All Sins

Monday, April 11th, 2005

I have asserted in another blog that God forgives all sins. This is something that makes sense in the context of what Jesus taught. This is something that most liberal Christians that I know believe. This is something that is taught in the Catholic Church. But, the Internet being what it ...

The Sound of Breaking Laws

Friday, April 8th, 2005

It seems quite strange how the Radical Right is so hypocritical about the law. They seem to believe that they are above the law while they believe that those who they disagree with must be held to the highest standards of the law. In a free society I would hope ...

Right Wing Nuts

Tuesday, April 5th, 2005

Blogging is the instant publication of your emotional reaction to the events of the day. We write about what matters to us. When we blog we put our emotion on the line. We are saying that we care enough to write about what we find important. We are telling everyone ...
