In 1987 chiropractors (and other quacks)
won a big victory over the American Medical Association,
ushering in an era of legalized quackery.

Stripped of government protection, the public was now left to fend for itself.
While this sounds bad, it could be turned into a blessing in disguise
if it forces the masses to develop the rational thinking skills necessary
to defend themselves from frauds.

2 examples (out of thousands) of Christian hypocrisy. First up:

4 out of 5 Christian divorcees want gays
to stop undermining the sanctity of marriage.



And second, Christians are apparently okay
with ignoring the parts of the Bible they don't like.

We've all heard the phrase "playing the Hitler card."
It is used when a person tries to make a comparison,
between someone they don't like, and Adolf Hitler;
because Hitler is the epitome of evil.
We hear it used quite often.
But oddly, I haven't heard it used for someone
who actually does seem to fit the comparison ...

Vladimir Putin

The Russian-Georgian War

The Russian-Ukraine War

Lots of people are dying because of this maniacal thieving bastard.
(google: Panama Papers)
But if he isn't stopped soon, that may be just a drop in the bucket.

Actually, there is a better comparison for Putin.
Putin is the 21st century embodiment of ...

I'm the last guy whom you would expect
to defend a Republican governor like Matt Bevin.
But as much as I hate to do it,
Liberals have forced me to do so.

Governor Bevin is claiming that a Clinton victory
could very well result in bloodshed.

Here is an article containing the text
of the controversial portion of his speech;
and some Liberal commentary


Now, go back and reread Bevin's statements from the point of view
that Bevin claimed was the proper context.

Now, think about it for a moment with an open mind.
Which makes more logical sense ...
That Bevin was inciting insurrection should Clinton be elected?
Or that her election might result in the loss of life of American servicemen?

The author did not accept Bevin's clarification.
It seems clear to me that it was meant exactly how Bevin claimed.
To believe otherwise requires an absurd level of dishonesty.

To me, the dishonesty is coming from the writer
and those Liberals who are trying to twist Bevin's words into something gruesome.

Here is the video of Bevin's speech.
It is 16:38 long, but you can skip to 11:50 to hear the controversial portion.

Governor Bevin's speech
threatening bloodshed if Clinton is elected


Crap like this is why I refuse to identify with an ideology.
This would be the perfect time to post my favorite quote
(which just happens to be by ... me)

"Overcoming ideological thinking,
whether Liberal or Conservative,
is equivalent to giving your brain an enema.

Critical Thinking - Shifting the Burden of Proof

Tracie Harris of the "Atheist Experience" explains
that rejection of a claim does not constitute a counterclaim (14:23)


In debates over the existence of God,
Theists often attempt to shift the burden of proof because ...
it is a burden they cannot meet.

Their strategy relies on convincing the audience
that the Atheist's rejection of God is, in itself, a claim ...

it is not

"Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday
celebrated on the first Monday in September.
It honors the American labor movement
and the contributions that workers have made
to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
"

So I guess it's safe to assume that you Conservatives
will try to do everything in your power to eliminate Labor Day
once you win the Presidency in November ... am I right?

Hey, I've got an idea - why don't you replace it with ...

"The One Percent Day"

and then move it to April 15 to celebrate the day ...

that everyone else has to pay taxes

Fundamentalist Christians may be right about evolution:
they may not have evolved from monkeys.
Every time a natural disaster strikes,
religious leaders tell their 'flocks' that it was God,
and after 2,000 years, they still fall for it ... every single time.

Even monkeys aren't that stupid
