The Confederacy


The Union's victory in the U.S. Civil War
ended military hostilities between the states,
but the battle to civilize the South continues to this day.



Here is an excerpt from the article:

"How could it be that a highway was named after a man who made war against the United States, all so the citizens of his region could continue to hold human beings in chains? All so slave masters could continue to rape the women they claimed to own. The children of these unions were usually enslaved by their own fathers, often acting as servants to their white half brothers and sisters.

That throughout a significant swath of the nation, men who committed treason for the sake of maintaining chattel slavery are lauded as heroes speaks to a terrible illness in the American psyche -- one that continues to fester 145 years after the last shot was fired in the War Between the States.

The Civil War ended 150 years ago (militarily);
but the battle for the hearts and minds
of the slave-owner's descendants ...

continues to this day

A note about their "loyalty":
They were solidly Democratic until LBJ passed
the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act.
LBJ predicted that Democrats would lose the southern white vote ...
and he was right.
Southern whites aren't loyal to a party ...
they are loyal to whomever will best promote their racism.

Damn - evolution sure is a slow process

Conservative Christians


2/23/17

The only people in America who were gullible enough
to actually fall for the con that Trump is a Christian ...

were Evangelicals (Conservative Christians)

These are the same people who believe that Noah's Flood was a real event
so this shouldn't come as all that big of a shock.

I don't normally make predictions,

once they gain total control over U.S. government in 2017.
They will finally have the power to accomplish
what they have been trying to do for over 150 years ...

Officially declare America a "Christian Nation"

Even ultra-conservative icon Barry Goldwater feared them,
and correctly predicted the trap America was falling into ...

There are two very different types of Christians in America.
You have heard that from me (an atheist) many times ...

Now you can see it explained in detail ... by a progressive Christian

And if you would like still more evidence
that there are two very different types of Christians in America:
the reaction to the positions of Pope Francis
(which are basically the same as those of Jesus)
has made that claim even stronger

Conservatives hate him

If Jesus came back to Earth tomorrow
He would line up every Conservative Christian in America
and then proceed, slowly down the line,
kicking every single one of them, as hard as He could ...

By Frank Schaeffer:

"I Helped Start the Religious Right:
Here's How We Tried to Undermine Secular America --
and Build a Theocracy.
"

Christian home schooling is at the core of the project

The fact that I am having such a difficult time trying to decide
whether to file this under politics or religion,
should be a big hint as to just how closely the two are entertwined
(which was the main point of Schaeffer's article)

When you hear the phrase "straight from the horse's mouth" -
Frank Schaeffer is whom they are referring to.
This guy knows more about what he is talking about
than any of us ever will.

(that doesn't mean his conclusions are infallible;
but it does mean that you had better have all your ducks lined up
before you decide to challenge those conclusions)

As if we needed any more proof that Conservatives only thump their Bibles

they will go for the money ... every single time

Conservatives are going nuts doing damage control
as the Pope becomes the latest threat to their "profits."

This also clarifies what the true Conservative "cause" really is:

Approximately 25% of Americans are religiously unaffiliated.
How much are they underrepresented in Congress?

They are underrepresented by a factor of ...

more than 100

(instead of 1 - there should be over 130)



If we assume that the "don't know/refuse" members are unaffiliated,
and are simply afraid to say so,
then unaffiliated Americans are "only" underrepresented by a factor of ...

more than 10

(there are only 10 - where there should be more than 130)

But what is most telling, is that 9 out of those 10 are afraid to even admit
that they do NOT belong to a group that worships an invisible magic ghost.

(Let's hope that in the future, humans will look back at this story
and be utterly amazed that the word NOT was in there)

That gives you a pretty good idea
of where America stands in the 21st century;

pretty much the same place
where most of the other backward nations of the world stand.

How do Republican Christians differ from Democratic Christians?

Republican Christians claim to be "the party of patriots."

Here's a popular Republican Christian bumper sticker about Obama
(from the 2012 presidential election) taken from Psalms 109:8-9:

"Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
"

This is how Republican Christians support their own president ...
when he's not from their party.

This is what passes for patriotism among Republican Christians.

That is why they wave the flag so furiously
and criticize others as unpatriotic.
It is to distract everyone from the fact
that they are the least patriotic of all Americans.

Why are they the least patriotic of all Americans?
Because their allegiance ... is to a higher power



Yet, as the graphic above shows ... they dishonor Jesus too.

The Official Republican Party Platform

Quoting Jesus in Matthew 25:29
"For to every one that has, shall be given, and he shall have abundance:
but from him that has not, shall be taken away, even that which he has.

See, it's not their fault. They are simply following scripture.
Oddly, this is the only documented case of Republicans actually following Jesus' teachings.

Activism (me and my megaphone)


Yesterday's Westboro Baptist protests

When Westboro began their protest, kitty corner from the Catholic church, the members led by Father Bevacqua turned their backs on Westboro and began singing hymns. This has been a common strategy throughout America.

I saw a group of gay people counter protesting on another corner
(directly across from Westboro)

My blood was boiling so I walked out into the intersection and hoisted my sign high: "Go back to Kansas Westboro inbreds"

They tried to ignore me.

So I used my megaphone to point out that many of their brothers and sisters had left the family and changed their names. I criticized them for lecturing the Catholics on family values when their own hate was tearing their family apart.

They began to sing in order to drown me out
(the same tactic the church was using against them)

But my megaphone was working especially well ... and loud.

I then told them that Canada would allow lepers into their country but had banned Westboro Baptist. I added that England would allow people with butt cancer into their country but had banned Westboro. I said "When countries will allow lepers and butt cancer in - and keep YOU out - what does that make you?"

(Yeah ... I know. But just the sight of these people
was enough to strip away what little maturity I had to begin with)

I said "No Baptist organization will have anything to do with you.
You are outcasts among your own religion."

They tried to sing louder.

I turned up the volume on my megaphone to "full"

I directed my next comment to their leader, Shirley Phelps-Roper, "Why don't you tell us about your illegitimate child? In the dictionary that is called a bastard. Did you bring the little bastard with you today Shirley? What happened? Did you get hot for the Sparklett's Water guy one night? Hey Shirley, when are you going to tell the little bastard that according to Deuteronomy 23:2 he will never be allowed into Heaven no matter what he does?"

Then the strangest thing happened: 15 minutes into their protest (barely half way in), they all packed up and headed out. They just gave up and left!

Puzzled, I turned around and headed back to my car.
I was putting away my sign and megaphone when 2 reporters caught up to me.

One reporter said that he had been standing right next to Shirley when I started my tirade. He told me that when I brought up her illegitimate child, she looked like she had been physically punched in the stomach. He said he could see it on her face. That's when she told everyone to pack up.

These people traveled over a thousand miles to hurt innocent people, including many children. But when someone hit them back ... they couldn't take it.

NEXT DAY

Oddly, none of the stories that appeared the next day mentioned what happened at the Catholic Church. They reported on the demonstrations at other churches and at the Golden Globes, but barely mentioned the Catholic incident. But in most, if not all of the stories, they quoted one minister who said that the counterprotests proved that Love was more powerful than Hate.

Actually, their love has never been able to stop Westboro during tens of thousands of protests. But one Atheist stood up for the Catholics and sent Westboro scurrying back under their rocks.

I guess that story just doesn't sell as well as "Love beats Hate."



Yesterday I counterprotested against Westboro Baptist Church.

After the protests, I sent Westboro the following email message:

I want to take a moment to thank you all for traveling over a thousand miles out to California to poop in my backyard. Giving you a 'California Welcome' was the least I could do. That was me with the megaphone at the Catholic Church in Glendale, and at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills.

Look forward to seeing all of you again next time you are out my way.

neo



Well, it's been 2 months since Westboro Baptist Church protested in Southern California. They have returned, this time, to picket the Oscars. As they did 2 months earlier at the Golden Globes, they first spent the day protesting at 4 churches. I intercepted them at their fourth and final stop before the Oscars - a Catholic church in Lakewood, California.

California has been experiencing one of its worst droughts on record. But a storm arrived days before the Awards. On the morning of the Awards, the storm was moving out. I headed out feeling confident about the forecast and the receding clouds. I got to the church and scouted the area. The weather looked pretty good. At 10:35 they arrived. I grabbed my protest sign, megaphone, and camera crew, and hurried to confront them. At exactly that moment ... the heavens opened up.

I was instantly drenched. But determined, I continued on. I saw that Westboro was already picketing and that counter-protesters were stationed across the street. I was using my sign more like an umbrella than a sign.

The action lasted a good 40 minutes. When they finally packed up to leave, it miraculously stopped raining - for good. That was it: it only rained at the location where I confronted them, and only for the duration of the demonstration. No where else.

The video was unusable because the rain had muffled my megaphone. All my preparations (including hours spent firming and shaping my pompadour) were nullified; I looked like a stray dog that had been hosed down by an angry homeowner.

This was the closest I have ever come to rededicating my life to Jesus.

I was saved from that mistake when I remembered what I had learned in science classes and from videos, which explained how weather, including storm cells, worked.

So, like the Golden Globes, I am once again without any video to show you. You only have my word that I was even there. But if you want to read the script that I yelled at them through my megaphone, it's only 2 pages.

Westboro Baptist vs. neo

Yeah, I know. I was a dick ... and immature ... and ...
But those creeps really boil my onions.

UPDATE

I went to two locations with my trusty megaphone
only to be disappointed that the media had ignored my advice

Since I didn't see any point in getting beaten up by hundreds of protesters
with a long history of violence (including bombings and murders)
and not even have it recorded,
I decided instead to go home and bury my disappointment
by making a video about these anti-choice assholes instead.

The Science of Fox News:
Why Its Viewers Are the Most Misinformed


Analysis

It was an interesting article but it left me unfulfilled.
I wanted to know why  the authoritarian personality hides in the Fox Bubble.

I believe it is because they cannot defend their positions; and the reason they cannot, is because their positions are provably wrong. But the ego / pride of the authoritarian personality will never allow them to admit that they could be wrong. So they are forced to hide in the Fox Bubble with the like-minded where they can all feel safe. While it also involves a great deal of mental laziness, pride (specifically - the need to feel superior) is the overwhelming factor that spurs them to defend their nonsense against science and facts.

Sound like the religious mind?

It's not a coincidence:
the Fox Bubble is where American Evangelicals live.

Remember recently when it was announced
that Fox had bought the National Geographic?

Well, Rupert Murdoch just took over ... and it wasn't pretty.
Click on the picture of Murdoch's media empire to read what he did.



The golden nugget in that article was this:
"Several people in the channel’s fact-checking department, for example,
were terminated ....
"

The monster that is the Murdoch empire grows more powerful
in direct proportion to the people growing dumber.
So he is feeding off of the ignorance of the masses.

Remember back a few months ago when everyone freaked out over

Remember the story about 8 months ago
when the Senate confessed (by a vote of 98-1)
that Climate Change was real?

(and since this vote wasn't based
on any recent scientific breakthrough data,
it was an admission by Republicans
that they had been lying to the public)

And now we have Kevin McCarthy admitting on TV
that the purpose of exploiting the deaths of Americans in Benghazi
was to smear Hillary Clinton.

So, have Fox News viewer ratings slumped?

Actually they're skyrocketing

See the problem?

Our family, friends, and neighbors (who identify as Conservatives)
simply don't care about truth and Republicans know it.
They can lie to them all day long
and then tell them that they've been lying to them,
and Republicans know that at the end of the day,
that their loyal base will always be there.

If you need any more evidence
that "these people" have a severe mental disorder
then I can't help you - it couldn't be any more clear.

Rational people flee for the hills when they learn they've been lied to,
and they seek alternative sources of information that they can trust.

So why do Conservatives remain true
even after they've been told that they've been lied to?

Likely because their egos (pride)
will not allow them admit that they've been fooled and lied to,
even when they are told so ... right to their faces.

And here's an example of a tragic story
that is playing out all across America right now ...

and is tearing America apart

Our problem is much more serious than most people realize.
How do you fix tens of millions of mentally screwed-up people?

You can't force them into psychoanalysis;
and based on what I reported above,
many of them would simply refuse
to allow themselves to be helped anyway
because their egos would never allow it.

Whoever discovers the answer to this problem
and is able to apply it to put humanity back on the rails,
will deserve to be honored for eternity.

Neuroscientists at UCLA test subjects for altruism



Taken from the article ...

"Participants whose dorsomedial prefrontal cortex was dampened,
tended to be more generous overall."

"But those whose dorsolateral prefrontal cortex was dampened
tended to be more generous to recipients with higher incomes —
people who appeared to be less in need of a handout."

“Normally, participants would have been expected to give according to need,
but with that area of the brain dampened,
they temporarily lost the ability for social judgments to affect their behavior ....

They should have tested them for political affiliation.

As I continue on my mission to make as many friends as I can, before I die

I reached out to professor Gwartney (3 pages)

California raises smoking age from 18 to 21

In the "So what else is new department?" the article stated:
"The higher age limit, part of a package of anti-tobacco bills,
won approval despite intense lobbying from tobacco interests
and fierce opposition from many Republicans,
who said the state should butt out of people's personal health decisions,
even if they are harmful.
"

Gee, the tobacco industry and Republicans
are locked together in a lover's embrace.
Who would have ever guessed that one?

And just to send the "Irony Meter" into the red zone,
they say with straight faces,
that government should stay out of personal health decisions.

Aren't these the same Republican Ass-Clowns
who believe that government has the duty
to climb inside every woman's vagina?

I believe that answer would be ... yes

Republican refusal to accept Medicaid expansion will kill thousands every year

Think about that one for a moment ...
Republican governors are willing to kill more of their own people every year
than were killed on 9/11 - for no reason other than political spite.

NEW RULE
Republican Christians shouldn't be allowed to attend church
until they can prove that they actually follow the teachings of Jesus.

Adopt that rule and you will quickly rid your church of Republicans.

Here are your choices ... red or blue?





Here's a message for the Tea Party





Here's a gift you can get for all your Fox News friends






Here is a comment I posted on several video comment threads on YouTube:



"In 1973 you Conservative morons lost abortion in the Supreme Court.
How did you respond?

By bombing clinics and murdering doctors.

In 2012 you Conservative morons lost health care in the Supreme Court.
How did you respond?

By doing something North Korea and Iran only dreamed they could do -
shutdown the American economy.

You flag-waving, Bible-thumping idiots are the greatest enemy America has ever faced.
If they ever institute IQ testing as a voting requirement ...
you'll all be screwed.
"



How long do you think that comment lasted
before conservatives voted it out of existence?

Good guess

2013 Government Shutdown

"Patriotic" Republican congressman Ted Cruz of Texas wants to bring America to a standstill; which is pretty much the same thing North Korea would like to do.

Chris Matthews labels Ted Cruz a political terrorist

Personally, I think Matthews went too easy on Cruz.
I label Ted Cruz ... a traitor to America.

More proof that our Democracy has been sold out

Republicans vote to block any attempt at gun control

If you voted to reelect these people
then you have no grounds to complain
when they ignore you to please their "benefactors."

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

Why was the nuclear option invoked in the Senate?



It doesn't get any clearer than that.
Since inauguration day 2009, the Republicans have set up a roadblock
depriving America of a functioning government.
When Democracy didn't work out quite the way they wanted,
they threatened to destroy the American economy.

America has never faced a greater enemy.
Even Japan during WW2 lacked the power to damage America
as badly as do our own people.

Republicans are screaming bloody murder because Democrats changed the rules,
but let's jump into the "Way Back Machine" and travel back in time to ...

7 weeks ago

Remember what Abraham Lincoln said:
"America will never be destroyed from outside.
If we falter and lose our freedoms,
it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Texas Conservatives infect the nation

In order to save money, many smaller states rely on Texas
to provide their textbooks.

Show of hands:
how many of you prefer using single-ply toilet paper?
(you can put those smelly hands down now)

Buying textbooks from Texas is like buying single-ply toilet paper:
It's cheaper - but you will regret it.

Look, all you smaller states,
pay a little more money and get a decent product; or make your own.
Your kids deserve better than single-ply textbooks.

But if you choose to go the cheap route and buy Texas textbooks,
it won't be your children's hands ...

that end up full of shit

What kinds of advances are possible in states
where Conservatives are not in power?

This kind

Conservatives do everything in their power
to prevent the regulation of big business.

Every bill Conservatives pass, either:              
1) panders to religious nutjobs, or                  
2) increases the profits of the wealthy            
at the expense and health of the masses

These life-saving rules would not have been possible in the Deep South ...
or any state under Conservative control

Florida is sinking into the ocean



Rumor has it that Florida Governor Rick Scott
has threatened to punish state employees
who even utter the phrase "climate change"

Scott's people are denying it - but this guy got punished

Reality cares little for what delusional humans want to believe.
"The oceans aren't rising and Jesus is coming back."

The longer those two delusions persist ... the more humanity will suffer

When Republicans go nuts over Obama's immigration action
you might want to keep in mind ...

this fact that Republicans are hiding from you

This is another example of the horror of the 2-party system
that the Founding Fathers tried to warn us about.
Neither side wants to see the other succeed, so they fight,
and the ones who suffer the most are ... Americans.

But between the two parties, only one fights for the average American;
the other only has an interest in protecting and expanding ...

the profits of the rich

Last year when Republicans didn't get their way
they shut down the government and threatened to destroy our economy;
all to prevent the poorest, sickest Americans from getting health care.

So how do they top that?

By inciting violence and anarchy

Now Republicans are willing to urge the country into violent chaos;
all to prevent immigration reform.

It's not like Americans didn't see this coming.
Last year Republicans gave us a sneak peak
at how far they were willing to go if not given their way.

Republicans continue to push the lie that Obama governs like a dictator
knowing full well that it is their own actions
which force him to take executive action;
and even then, when you check the facts ...

they don't support that lie

The only presidents since the 19th century
who have issued fewer executive orders than Obama
were those who served fewer years.
Per year, Obama has used his executive powers less
than any president in well over a hundred years.

But America reelected these useless, lying sacks of shit ...
and now we have to sleep with them

The 113th Congress (2013-2014) has received the lowest ratings of any congress in history from American voters. They seem to be perpetually on vacation, where they accomplish just about as much as when they are in session and "working."

Question: do they deserve the title of "The Worst Legislature in U.S. History"



Well, about half of them do: the Conservative half.

It is disturbing that many blame Congress as a whole,
when it couldn't be more obvious that the blame rests
almost entirely on Conservative lawmakers.
They have spent the last 6 years doing everything in their power
to bring America to a grinding halt in a desperate attempt to regain power
by fooling ignorant Americans into believing that the blame lies elsewhere.

We elected them and paid them to provide us with government.
Instead all we got in return was
Bible-thumping, flag-waving, and obstruction of government.

Conservative lawmakers actively work for the rich
against the interests of the other 99% of Americans.
The non-rich Conservative base doesn't realize
that they are voting against their own self-interests
when they support Conservative politicians.

Yet the polls show that brainwashed Conservative voters
continue to support these seditious American politicians,
plan to reelect most of them, and vote in new ones;
possibly giving control of both houses of congress to Conservatives.

This means that our long national nightmare is far from over.

The only solution I can see, is that the masses must develop
the rational thinking skills necessary to vote intelligently,
if they are to free themselves from being so easily manipulated ...

by greedy, evil people

UPDATE

They did take over both Houses of Congress.
Now, the only piece of the puzzle that they do not own is the Presidency

and they will likely get that in 2016

Dinesh D'Souza fired over yet another religous-right sex scandal. Yawn.

Here is a Gallup Poll from 2 weeks before the 2012 election:

Romney Leads Obama by 7 Points

This poll was so far removed from all the other polls
(which basically had the election too close to call)
that many wondered what the hell was going on with Gallup.
It sounded more like a poll at Fox News, which, as most people are now aware,
is the propaganda arm of the Republican party.

Then, about a month after the election,
I happened upon this Gallup Poll:

God Is Alive and Well

No where in the article is there much mention
of the tremendous changes occurring in America
as Ghost Worship continues to disintegrate
and Secularism rises to the highest levels ever recorded.
There are almost no comparisons with previous results,
and where there are, they are carefully worded.
The book "God is alive and well" is referred to in multiple places.
The article sounds like it was written by Rick Warren,
offering hope to Christians in spite of the gloomy results.

Now I'm adding one plus one and I'm starting to make out the number two.

That whole Romney-thing was a desperate attempt
to rally the base at the last minute in a vain attempt to pull off a miracle;
and they were willing to sacrifice their credibility to make it happen.

From this point on, I no longer trust the Gallup organization.
It seems clear to me that, like Fox News,
they will view the facts in whatever context necessary to promote their ideology;
and their ideology always seem to coincide with the ideology of ...

the Republican party
