Yeah and so, it's been a while since my last blog. Right?



Oh, did I mention before that I'm still kinda recovering from two surgeries last year? Yeah, bummer. Turns out I had aneurysms up the old wazoo, and could have keeled over dead at any moment. Seriously. Like in less than five minutes. They call it a Triple-A, only mine turned into a Quad, (i.e.- going in a 2nd time.).



It was however, a little encouragng somehow to learn that… Continue

“The Tyranny of the Majority”

Posted on November 2, 2009 at 3:02pm 1 Comment

On this Monday, November 2, 2009, the day before the voters of the State of Maine go to the polls to decide if they are to be in reality what all of the paperwork says we are in principle. Whether the citizens of Maine are to be allowed to "pursue happiness" as it has been previously declared is our right. And if we are to be in fact, a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.



Or, if our government is not to be defined by us, but by someone's idea of god and…

I Don’t Care What Your Delusion Is, I’m Not Obligated To Share It (A Reposting)

I saw this recently on another board and thought it deserved a wider airing:



I Don’t Care What Your Delusion Is, I’m Not Obligated To Share It



The earth revolves around the sun.

The earth is billions, not thousands of years old.

Fox News is neither fair, nor balanced - nor news.

Evolution happened and is happening.

Torture does not work.

Bush did not keep us safe.

Markets do not regulate themselves.

Fascism is not the same as… Continue

DeSwiss, I didn't approve the Russell's Teapot Cartoon as a blog because it's our policy to not allow photo's as blogs. We have been inconsistent in this and I'll seek to get a consensus on this so we can be more consistent going forward. So if you could post it as a photo or add thoughts as a blog to it I could approve it as a blog. Sorry for the confusion.
