Case for judicial reform

Lady justice is blind, its the law and facts that will drive the results of the court cases. But unfortunately judges are deciding cases based on their political beliefs and judges who decide the cases impartially are being removed from their job. 

In the 1800's after the civil war blacks were given voting rights in the south but the supreme court ruled people are separate but equal leading…

Right to question Islam

We have right to question. Prophet Muhammed is a pedophile he married aisha at 6 and consummated his marriage at 9 according to Wikipedia. Why can't we question this and say its wrong? Why should be people scared to point this out?

Why a football player might offer prayer after scoring a touchdown?

  • Maybe because he taught religion by parents since he was kid in bible studies, sunday school?
  • Maybe he went through very stressful times and he found it very comforting to believe in god?
  • Maybe he constantly taught in the church that being religious is a good thing?
  • Maybe he was taught in the church by the preacher who picked and choose only the good parts of the bible left out the mean and the voilent parts?
  • He has been working his tail off to get…

My thoughts on the Rights of Transgendered people

In this society where the majority of the people are male or female transgendered people are ignored and their rights are not given any importance. In United States at child birth the surgeries are performed and gender assignment is done at birth without the person’s choice? People may like to adopt a dog or cat instead of adopting a transgendered kid? The world likes perfect things but in truth nothing in world is perfect. The transgendered people are forced to use the male or female…

Why I am an Atheist?

Growing up I never had the same longing for a higher power. I was forced by my parents to follow a particular religious rituals and they would bore me. I would go through the motions of doing the religious rituals. In my late teenage years in the college when I ran through the tough times I found solace in praying for higher power. It was very comforting to pray for a higher power and have all my trouble transfered, one who would help me get through the college and…

Why war on drugs has failed

I saw this video on google tech talks. It talks about the war on drugs and why it has failed. How can government expect to defeat 500 billion dollar profit industry with a 50 billion dollar investment?

 

Its common sense if people are prohibited and asked to not do something more than anything they will end up doing that. If something is repressed it comes back stronger. Check out the below video to see to get more information about what I am talking about

Misrepresentation of words..

It amazing how organized religion and conservatives use the words that don't serve their purpose like

  • "Pro Life": Real word should be "Anti womens reproductive rights movement" because this movement focuses on taking away the rights of the women. 
  • "Pro Family": This movement should be probably renamed "Anti gay movement" because of the constant clamoring on their part to deny the LGBT community to marry to stop them from adopting kids
  • "Pro Second Amendment":…
