THE SKEPTIC ARENA

Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

South Dakota takes a dump on our Constitution

All public schools are now required to post "In God We Trust"

I would drop my objection to South Dakota's requirement
if they would agree to post this far more accurate one ...

Big Tobacco wags the dog ...

sending Trump after vapers

I knew something was fishy
when Trump came to the aid of the people
after 6 had died from vaping.
Trump getting upset and wanting to help people?

Trump NEVER does anything for the people.
Trump ALWAYS works in the best interests of the Oligarchs.
When I read that Big Tobacco has been fighting vaping for years, suddenly ...

it all came into focus

Stop Mandatory Vaccinations! (Administrator - Larry Cook)



Facebook is shutting down the largest anti-vax group on its platform

Personally, I think those anti-vaxxers should spend a few years in prison;
especially when you consider all the deaths they are responsible for.

Murderous cult leader Charles Manson



If you ever wanted to know more about Scientology,

Americans are dying while being unable to access drugs
whose prices have been hiked by thousands of percent.
Diabetics are rationing their insulin and some don't make it.
Has Congress helped these poorer Americans?

But look how fast Trump's administration moves
when the profits of Big Business are threatened:
Trump: "We'll retaliate against Macron's foolishness"
And here is the last part ... that he left out:

for trying to tax the big corporations

Nothing new to see here folks ... move along.

Boris Johnson, Britain's new P.M. changes his tune and knuckles under to Trump

Here is the quote from Johnson when he was being honest and had no reason to lie:
in 2015 Johnson called the Republican candidate for president ...
"unfit for office and betraying a quite stupefying ignorance. "

Now Johnson does a 180 and does his best impersonation
of an American Republican congressman by groveling in Trump's presence.
And you can rest assured he won't be making any more honest evaluations ...

any time soon

Fears? Fears?
We've been through this a thousand times.
We already know what will happen ...

Higher prices and fewer jobs

California goes around Trump's corrupt EPA and makes a deal with automakers

Among the many lies that Republicans push
is that they are huge "state's rights" supporters.
As this article proves ...

that is only true when it is in their financial interest to do so.

Conservatives are known for promoting Capitalism
while Liberals are known for promoting Socialism.

When this battle played out in the world of microbes ... who won?

Even friggin' bugs figured it out.
Even they are smarter than conservatives.

My summary of the Wikipedia article on Capitalism (4 pages)

My position on Capitalism is that
it is a freedom that should be available to all of us

BUT ...

A well-regulated and controlled freedom.

Does anyone think this is a coincidence?

Federal Election Commission no longer has enough members for a quorum

There has never been a more corrupt government in American history
and nearly half the people (Republicans) ... don't care.

David Koch has died (the one on your left)



Age 79 (kind of young for a rich guy) - no cause given. But if I had to guess ...

I would guess that the prostate cancer came back and finally nailed his coffin shut

Violence against religious believers by atheists has been documented.
Stalin spent his early years in a Christian seminary in Tiflis, Georgia (Russia).
He was smart enough to see through the bullshit after a few years and became an atheist.
But based on his brutal anti-religious actions once he came to power,
it makes me wonder ... what the Hell did those priests do to him?

The wall of separation between church and state takes yet another huge hit ...

The Christian cross ... is not really Christian

Do you remember this one: "Corporations ... are people"

Words mean whatever the rich need them to mean.
And the judges are there to ensure that the law gets interpreted
exactly the way the rich need it to be interpreted.

We are in deep ... deep ... shit

Another one of the all-time greatest quotes by John Fugelsang
about Conservative Christian hypocrites:

Abortion isn't just legal in Israel, it's free.
So all the anti-abortion #maga people
praising Alabama and trying to kill Roe V. Wade
will probably start demanding we end all US aid to Israel ...

Am I Right?
