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.

Here's Trump ...

Draining The Swamp

As American voters are finding out
Trump is draining the swamp of snakes
and refilling it with crocodiles

Keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

I sent the following email to dozens of Conservative Christians:

"In Exodus, your God bragged about murdering countless innocent Egyptian babies.
Then He created a holiday (Passover) to celebrate the slaughter of these babies.
My question isn't about Him though. My question is about you ...
Why would any moral human being worship such a hideous murdering beast?

And a follow-up question:

Since you do - how could you be considered anything other than monsters yourselves? 
"

For some odd reason, not one of them was willing to stand up and defend his God.

The powerful NRA flexes its political muscles

and more people are going to die

That's what the Plutocracy does - it kills Americans for profit.
Whether through military, medical, or legal means
they'll use every weapon at their disposal
to transfer wealth from you to them ...

even if it requires killing you

The Republicans (working for the Plutocracy)
didn't just take over the Federal government,
they have also taken control of most state governments.
At the state level, local bullies turn their states into a living Hell for the people;
who then obediently reelect them to their positions.

Here is a classic example of people trying to defend themselves
and clean up the corruption in their government ...

only to be thwarted by their elected representatives

No matter how clear Republicans make it, that they are working only for the rich,
the ignorant masses have been trained to remain loyal and take their beatings.

If you see the similarity with domestic abuse victims ... congratulations

Now that Conservative Christians
have taken over control of the U.S. government,
one of the first things they are doing is ...

shredding the Constitution

The "Christian Nation" they've worked so hard to create
may finally be coming into view.

Stand by America.
Conservative Christians now control our government.

That means we're headin' back to the Middle Ages

Did you catch the phrase Federal Tyranny ?
I believe they used that same phrase when their slaves were taken away.

This Congressman masterfully exposes the hypocrisy of Republicans (3:30):



Republican hypocrisy exposed for the millionth time;
and for the millionth time ... Conservatives don't care.
No matter how many times we expose the hypocrisy of Trump
or the hypocrisy of Conservative Christian beliefs,
the millions of "useful idiots" who enable Plutocrats, simply don't care.

And THAT ... is the power of brainwashing

Despite a late start, getting into the political arena,
I must really be catching on. How do I know?

Because I already had this one figured out:

Republicans will dump Trump for Pence in a heartbeat
if he doesn't dance to their tune


If you go up to the menu and click "Podcasts & Videos" and select #385
you will see that, before Christmas, I predicted the same thing.

Democrats won't be able to save him.
They have been rendered powerless by our brilliant electorate.

And why would they want to save Trump anyway?

Because Pence (our real  president) and Ryan are far worse.

2 months ago before Trump and his pack of wolves took over the White House,
House Republicans tried to gain control over the Ethics Committee
(which pretty much gave away their game plan from the get-go).
The outcry forced them to back off and wait until everyone's attention
is directed elsewhere (like Russia or "Mezicans").

Here is an example of why they tried to take control of the committee ...

and why it is only a matter of time, before they do

Hang on tight America, the rollercoaster is just leaving the starting gate.

In the ongoing battle between moral principles and money
even liberal socialist countries like Sweden knuckle under ...

to the almighty dollar

The silence of the Feminists is deafening.

Advice:
Concentrate less on Trump's pussy-grabbing
and more on things that really matter
like standing up for, and defending, this brave principled woman.

If this story doesn't make you puke
then you might want to take your "moral compass" in for repair:

half a million cows slaughtered ... to increase profits

Mull that last story over in your head while realizing that
millions of people still starve to death in our modern world.

Worldwide death toll from starvation

But American corporations are guided by one motive, and one motive only ...

Profits

Why has history been filled with so many bad leaders?
Why do so many incompetent sycophants surpass you at work?

Rarely does any society choose to promote "leaders."
Most often, leaders are chosen from among ... the most loyal followers.

Even before the inauguration,
House Republicans were barely able to contain themselves
knowing that they were about to be unleashed on the gullible
and very wealthy American public.
Sensing the pillaging that was about to begin
they tried to take control of the Ethics Committee
but had to postpone that after a loud outcry.
(don't worry - they just put that on the backburner for now)

Now, with an eye to protecting themselves legally as the pillaging begins

they attempt to shield themselves from prosecution ahead of time

This explains why speculation is driving the Stock Market to record highs.
80% of all stock is owned by the rich. They know what's coming.
Now that Democrats are out of the way and Obama is gone,
there is no one left to stand in their way.

Let the pillaging begin!

Conservatives constantly scream about "State's Rights!"
But that is a lie. They are only for State's Rights
when they need to circumvent Federal equality laws.
Here is the proof that they will stomp on State's Rights
when it is in their political interest to do so ...

They want to eliminate the Medicaid Expansion

"Red" state governors opted out of the Medicaid Expansion
which cost the lives of thousands of their own citizens.
Yet these "State's Rights" advocates want to deny other states
the right to accept the Medicaid Expansion.

You fell for this America.
It was all right in front of your eyes.
So quit whining, bend over, and grab your ankles.
Many thousands of you are going to die.
And this is what you Conservatives voted for.

Keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

Conservatives are always trumpeting
"Capitalism - Unrestrained Free Market Capitalism!"

So in Wyoming where coal is king
how do Republicans respond to free market capitalism
when their side is losing?

like this

Shame?

Republicans don't know the meaning of the word.
Now "hypocrite" - that's a word they understand.
