THE SKEPTIC ARENA


This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
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.

A Federal Court strikes down Republican's attempt ...

to cut food stamps to Americans

There really aren't any words adequate enough
to describe the evil that America is experiencing.
Yet, in an awesome display of the incredible power of brainwashing,
the election in 2 weeks could still go either way.

When threatened, even plants try to protect themselves from predators
by secreting chemicals in a desperate attempt to survive.
Nearly half of Americans are going out of their way to prove that
they have no where near the intelligence or survival instincts of ...

plants

U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower (1953-1961)



Eisenhower's farewell speech warning America of ...

the growing power of the military-industrial complex (3:16)

As we now know (60 years later) ... we were unable to stop it.

Considering the depths to which his Republican party has fallen
and the growing U.S. military-industrial monster ...

it's a good thing Ike is no longer around to see those things

In a rare denial, Trump rejects California's request for ...

disaster relief for wildfires

Trump continues to punish California for being a "Democrat-run" state
and voting overwhelmingly against him in 2016.
Yet there is no state in America with more Republican voters:

Registered voters by state

Trump doesn't care how many millions of Republicans get punished
because he knows one thing above everything else ...

Once you OWN them ... they are yours for good.

Keep voting Republican. The rich sure do appreciate ... YOUR SUPPORT!

UPDATE (same day)

Trump backs down and gives in

Anti-abortion groups stand behind Trump's use of a drug, despite the fact that ...

it was tested on cells that were derived from an aborted fetus

These hypocritical brainwashed conservative zombies make this ...

Waaaaaaaaaaaay too easy

(and these are the same people who back Trump's support of Israel
despite the fact that Israel allows free abortions)

TOO EASY!

USC professor loses his job for the most absurd reason I have ever heard ...

a Chinese word sounded similar to "nigger"

As much as I hate conservatives,
stories like this one are the reason why
I would NEVER identify myself as a Liberal.
I feel bad for this professor.
I think he should sue them
and try to get one of USC's buildings named for him.

Voting Machine Lobbyists realize too late
that they could have saved themselves a ton of money
that they gave to "Moscow" Mitch McConnell to block election security bills.
The last thing Republicans want to do is prevent Russian interference ...

after all - that's how Trump got his job in the first place

Offering McConnell huge sums of cash to block election security
is like offering Donald Trump a no-limit credit card to buy hookers.
In both cases, they would have gladly paid for it themselves.

By the way, remember this one?

Ivanka has a patent on voting machines

(I'm sure they're related to her fashion empire)
After all, what ensemble would be complete without a ... voting machine.
