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.

Tucker Carlson gives a class on hypocrisy and psychological projection

It is stunning how he can be so oblivious to - what is so obvious to the rest of us.
The guy is looking in a mirror and seeing everyone else but ... himself.

Conservatives live far shorter lives than Liberals and ...

citizens of other advanced nations

Recent elections (such as 2016 Clinton-Trump and 2020 Biden-Trump)
reveal that it is far more informative to look,
not at the Red-state/Blue-state dichotomy,
but at a map showing local (county-level) voting.
Then you can clearly see the two Americas that have emerged:
(red) rural and interior America and (blue) metropolitan and coastal America.

The ( "Rubes" )
whose minds are easily controlled by the Oligarchs (mostly Republican)
are sitting ducks who are only used for the votes they provide.

It was mind-boggling to see Trump holding huge maskless rallies during the Pandemic
which became superspreader events that killed large numbers of conservatives;
and urge the faithful to pack the churches (maskless of course).

And yet they did

Keep voting Republican. The rich sure do appreciate ...

your support!

Before the Civil War, slaves in America had to be sheltered and fed
in order to produce the profits for their masters.

150 years later, in 21st century America (the richest nation on Earth)
huge numbers of American citizens do not even have those things.

Homelessness in America

Hunger in America

So how can America be the wealthiest nation on Earth
with so many homeless, hungry people?

Because the rich are doing better than ever.
Remember to keep voting Republican.
The rich sure do appreciate ...

your support!

American economic stagnation (1979-2019)

that the only time small increases occurred for the masses
was when a Democrat was president.

Democrats attempt to take control of the SCOTUS ...

by increasing the number of justices to 13

Why 13? Because conservatives currently hold a 6-3 advantage, so liberals need 4 more seats.

This is an example of why I hated politics most of my life and wanted nothing to do with it.
Finally, I realized that politics was where the real battle was taking place
and that the political arena is where I needed to be - so I held my nose and jumped in.

One of the basic underlying principles of the American Constitution
is the division of power among the 3 brances of government.
To achieve this, we must remove the judicial branch
from under the thumb of the other 2 branches.
Judges should be selected from within the judicial system.
They should never be chosen by popular vote
but by experts in the field of law;
as free as possible from the influence of political agendas.

and definitely not for life

Reparations bill has been introduced in The House of Representatives

You will rarely find stories where I side with Conservatives.
But, as much as I despise congressman Jim Jordan,
he stated the issue exactly right ...

" Democrats have essentially decided to take money from people
who were never involved in the evil of slavery
and give it to people who were never subject to the evil of slavery.
"

What annoys me even more,
is that the money would be coming from the U.S. government.
That would be the same government
that lost hundreds of thousands of soldiers
in the Civil War that freed them from slavery.

Recently, a story emerged of reparations being paid to African-American families
based on laws and practices that were designed to limit their ability
to own homes and build even a semblance of economic success.

I have no problem with those reparations.

Russian President Vladimir Putin



Putin sets up his dictatorship for life

putting the final nail in democracy's coffin

Democracy is being slaughtered worldwide by the rise of the Oligarchy.
They want the Middle Ages back - the way God intended it to be.
Trump's misstep in the U.S. was but a temporary setback.
Time is running out and the world is in deep, deep, deep shit.

Cartoon published in 2003

Supply Side Jesus (this is the Jesus whom Republicans worship)

No less true today than it was when it was published almost 20 years ago.
In the interim, Republicans ignored this cartoon, and became even more greedy.
They can neither be shamed nor educated.
But we have no other option than to find a way
to free these people from their brainwashing
because the destruction they are bringing to civilization by enabling the Oligarchs ...

is beyond calculation

Trump ripped off his own base of donors for over $100 million dollars ...

I can't say I feel sorry for those gullible, brainwashed little freaks.
If I were the judge I wouldn't even give them their money back.
