Separation of Church and Faith

If this report is acurate, it is a disturbing look into the results and goals of hate-crimes" legislation.

Gender-Bender

Via Sully, I find this article about a "man" who is pregnant.

You know, if my wife goes crazy and thinks she is a dog, it does not mean that if we have a kid it is a puppy. The person is obviously still anatomically and biologically a woman.

This quote from the third page, is, I find, in some ways the most humorous:

On successfully getting pregnant a second time, we are proud to announce that this pregnancy is free of complications and our baby girl has a clean bill of health.

Really? How do we know that it is a baby girl? Maybe it's a baby boy with a vagina - you know, like his "father."

That is all.

Separation of Church and State

To understand the battles of the Religious Right and anti-Religious Left better (both of which are only part of the Right and Left, respectively), you need to understand that the battle is not just between right-wing theocrats and left-wing believers in religious freedom. While some of it may be that, much of it is between right-wingers who believe in religious freedom and left-wingers who want to effectively establish secular humanism as the official state religion.

This was brought to mind during this exchange.

That is all.

Continuing the Revolution

In one of the comments to this post, I was directed toward this website, specifically to its list of candidates who apparently believe in Paul-esque standards of liberty (I am not yet sure of the criteria to get on the list).

More on this as I know more about it.

In any case, if you are interested in continuing the fight that the Ron Paul for President campaign started, and in expanding it to Congressional races, then this is probably where to begin. Visit the site and get familiar with it.

That is all.

On the Cuban Embargo

George Will argues for caution about ending the embargo on Cuba on the basis that trade with China has not brought freedom to that country.

I am unconvinced, though. Two things to consider: while politically China may be no closer to democracy than it was thirty years ago, almost certainly the degree of economic freedom has increased. Secondly, we must remember that China is a very large country, and that even a middle class that, in absolute numbers, seems large to us is only a small fraction of the overall population. Huge portions of its population (I think a majority) still live in rural poverty and virtually no amount of realistic economic growth is going to change this fact for at least a decade, probably two or three.

Change of this sort takes a long time in a country as large as China, and I don't see why we need to be pessimistic about the results of opening up the Chinese market in the 70s, or about what the results would be of lifting the Cuban embargo. It wouldn't clean up all of Cuba's problems, but it would be a lot better for everyone than what we have now.

That is all.

The Revolution Continues

For those of you who wish to campaign for Ron Paul-esque House and Senate candidates, here's a list of "Revolutionary" candidates:

Murray Sabrin

B. J. Lawson

With luck, the list will grow.

That is all.

Paul of Powerline: Please, McCain, Let Me Stick My Tongue Up Your Rectum

Tells you all you need to know about the SOBs at Powerline.

Oh, and about this comment?

If there are conservatives who sincerely believe that it makes little difference whether the Executive Branch is run by John McCain or Barack Obama, they are entitled to sit out the election. And if they’re going to sit it out, I’d appreciate it if they would sit it out entirely; in other words, stop attacking McCain for his “impurities.”

Go screw yourself.

That is all.

The Descent of Larry Elder into Neoconnery

Can you believe that the guy who wrote this in 2000 wrote this in 2007 or this in 2008? Or that the guy who wrote this right after September 11 wrote this crap (more here, here, and here) four-and-a-half years later?


My question:

Is he really that much of a neocon or is he on the take like Armstrong Williams?

That is all.

Paul Wins House Primary

There is still hope in the world.

Thanx and a tip o' the hat to Eric Garris on the LewRockwell Blog.

That is all.

New Computer

Although I bought it back in November, I have just got around to setting up my new Imac. This is the first post written on it.

More to come.

Ballot Access

Click on this link to be taken to ballot access maps for the major third parties.

I made these maps using photoshop, and they are based on the February 1st issue (the link will work as soon as the issue is posted) of Ballot Access News.

If you just want the Constitution Party ballot access map, here it is:
