Here Comes the Anti Smoking Nazi’s

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

I’m entirely biased in this piece because I am one of the infidels that just happens to smoke. In Mass-a-two-sticks it is illegal to smoke in the workplace. Just another one of those nice laws to let the people know that the state is looking out for you…again! Back in the ...

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

Murder rates are on the rise in a number of urban areas in the Northeast and one possible explanation being offered is that those metropolitan areas with the lowest immigrant population are more unstable.

Saving Africa- One Faith Healer At A Time

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

In their never-ending effort to save souls and pocket cash, Christian Evangelicals have found a treasure trove in Africa-again. Pentacostalism is flourishing in Africa these days, promising prosperity, miracle cures, and spiritual redemption to a continent ravaged by famine, poverty, civil war and rampant bloodshed. And, not surprisingly, American televangelists and ...

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007

Have you ever heard the expression "If you're not liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not conservative at forty you have no brain"? I'm the opposite. As I get older, I get more and more liberal. It seems to me that brains are something you're born with, ...

American Confidence In Organized Religion Wanes

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Organized religion trails the military, the police, and small business in a new Gallup survey of the confidence Americans have in their major institutions. Religion leads banking by a small margin and it exceeds the presidency, congress, the criminal justice system, and television news by wide margins. In the last year, ...

He used to be a Democrat. Then he decided to become a Republican when he ran (and was elected) for mayor of New York City.

The SCOTUS RATS Strike Again

Monday, June 25th, 2007

The RATS (Roberts, Alito, Thomas and Scalia) got Breyer and Kennedy onboard to assail our rights as Americans once again. In a 6-3 ruling the highest court in the land said that a kid, outside of school, on a public walk, could be admonished and sanctioned by that ...
