I'm Running for the Office of the President. Do you like My Hair?

 

I was reading online the other day what Rick Perry Republican Party presidential candidate hopeful would like to do. Reading it I was surprised

that the man would even consider doing such things. But then again, this shows you just how far

the so called “Republican Party” has gone to the right.

Now I grew up in Houston in the only congressional district in Texas, if not the country that carried Berry Goldwater in the 1964…

Herman Cain: Americans Have The Right To Ban Mosques In Their Communities

Nope...

Sorry....

This is the United States of American...

This is not Communist China, Communist North Korea, Communist Cuba, or Iran....

You cannot do this. You cannot ban a religion…

Fear and Mongering......

I just got a call from a so called “Conservative” group playing on the general populations’ ignorance.

Right of the bat they are calling “socialism.”  Then they say that President Obama raised the national debt to 14 trillion.  Funny how they ignored the fact that under G.W. Bush the national debt doubled and ended up around 10 trillion dollars.  They also pushed how Obama was the worst president since Carter.  While not a Carter fan, I do recall G. W. Bush’s ratings being pretty damn…

I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'LL TELL YOU WHY!!!!!!

  I’m really ticked off now…..BIG TIME!

Last night I expected all the “rapture”  yahoo’s to be gone.  All I expected to find was a bunch

of clothes, empty house, apartments, mobile homes and the like.  Cars just left on the street with the keys in them.

I had planned to go out looting. I was gonna clean up with the cash they left…

My Father's Funeneral, An Atheists's Funeral...

   A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,

ghosts and all, it was all made up.

  So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral.  I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life.  What he had…

The Silliness of Religion

The Silliness of Religion









I was doing some reading and came across George “Goofy” Bush’s statement that, “God wanted me to be President….”





And all this time I thought it was a frivolous lawsuit filed with the U.S. Supreme…

One for the Money...Two for the Show

I haven’t posted in a while. To be honest with you, I’ve really found nothing that has made me want to “post.” But in the last couple of days, the election of a Senator in Kentucky, where Rand Paul is running has caused me to want to post.…

PERSPECTIVES



Today I did something that I only do for weddings and funerals: I went to a church.

A “relation” was celebrating their birthday and chose to do so at the church they attend. That’s fine. The gathering wasn’t religious in nature. No praying, or speaking in “tongues” nor was there any snake handling.

Having to answer “natures call” I headed off to the restroom.

Just before getting there I saw a flyer for the church’s summer camp for kids. Of course it was religious. But what… Continue

Do Very Religious People Scare You?

Do religious people scare you?

Do their actions or their mannerisms raise the hair on the back of your neck?

A few years ago I saw a well known TV Preacher at a national political convention.

He had his "entourage" with him. I guess that’s the nice way of saying, “pack” like a pack of wolves.

The "vibrations" they gave off were the kind that made a person become very "vigilant." I’m saying that… Continue

If you’re horny and you know, it’s too damn bad…so says God

Seems that the bible pounders just want to control every aspect of your life. They even want to know what you’re doing in your bedroom.

Funny thing is, they don’t want the government to pry into their business. But because “God” is on their “side” they assume they have the right to stick their noses into everyone personal and private business.

It’s the same with the abortion issue. They honestly believe it’s their duty to intervene in a persons private matters. And if need be, some of… Continue

I am an American.

On top of that I am also a Texan.

I was born in Texas and can trace my family coming to Texas in the 1850’s.

Most of my family came from the United Kingdom. The rest came from Europe.

Some have been in the United States since the early 1700’s. Some fought in the American Revolution against England.

For what I can tell, they all were “Christians” of some sort or another.

I am an Atheist.

I’ve been an Atheist since the age of six.…

Let’s REGRESS…not PROGRESS!

I live in Texas.

I’ve always been an atheist.

All my life I’ve had to put up with these bible pounding clowns who think their “Manure” does not stink.

Well it does.

I’ve seen these clown just ruin a college.

At first there were no preachers on the Board of Regents.

Then one day there was one.

Then two.

The next thing you knew all the Regents were preachers.

That lead to the demise of the college.

It lost it’s… Continue

Pole-Dancing Miss USA a Conundrum for Muslims

Pole-Dancing Miss USA a Conundrum for Muslims

Why?

This is America.

Pictures of her competing in a Detroit radio’s station’s “Stripper 101” pole dancing contest held in 2007 have hit the net.

Okay so she won the thing. She got her own stripper pole and adult toys.

Honestly, she sounds like my kinda girl…

So she came here as a baby. She attended a “Christian” school but celebrates both… Continue

My Response to National Prayer Day.....



In response to the National Day of Prayer, or rather, the National Day of “Trying to do something without actually doing anything” I offer up a,

“National Atheist and Freethinkers Day of SLEEPING IN!

Instead of people ruining their knees by kneeling on them all day long….

Instead of people prostrating themselves on the floor and getting dirty…

Instead of people… Continue

Ten Commandments but not 610 Jewish Commandments.....



Sarah Falin...er…Palin was being interviewed and said something to the effect that the United States laws were based on the Ten Commandments.

This only proves that the quality of the American Education system is in very bad need of repair.

And to think that this individual could have been a heart beat away from the Presidency.

Now, mind you I know this women is out to make a buck.

She does not care what she says.

She does not… Continue

IS IT JUST ME OR.....





It seems that my face book account has been closed. They won’t tell me why. However, on their “Ask” page it does list some things. But nothing to indicate as to why my account was closed.

Now, I’ve not stalked anyone.

I’ve not threatened anyone.

I have however, been threatened for my lack of religious “beliefs.”

I just wonder if those individuals had their accounts closed as well?

Now did I post thing like I post on… Continue

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition boys!

Well now it looks like the Gun Toating Bible Pounders got busted by the FBI because they were planning a “revolt” to “save” America.

But fortunately, we were saved from them. For the time being that is.

Might I go out on a limb here and wonder if Sarah Palin is their poster girl?

And just why do they think (I’m using that term loosely) they have the right to “save” us?

I sure didn’t.

And I’m a vet.

It’s a piety the Cold War isn’t on anymore. I honestly believe that when… Continue

I’VE HAD ENOUGH OF THE LIBERAL PRESS AND THE PROGRESSIVES IN THIS COUNTRY

Ok so there are those against having health care for everyone in the United States.

They have it in England, Germany, France, Canada, and a whole list of others.

Of course, there are those who in those countries who do not like it. Then they just need to pay for their own coverage.



Funny thing is, having been in the insurance game the first thing you learn is that there will be someone who’ll call up and tell you they are tired of their employer’s health care plan. They are… Continue

It's time to put the Ameican People FIRST!

My former business partner died about 4 weeks ago. She had been fighting cancer for over 15 years.

Due to a third rate doctor and an HMO, she was misdiagnosed and nickel and dimed to death for years by them.

But HMO’s are very proven experts in the “Nickel and Dime” game.

I use to be in the insurance business back in the mid 1990’s.

It was the “Seniors” market. Medicare and Long Term Care.

Many people switch to the HMO’s for the “free” insurance.

Most of them had never… Continue
