  2. About half of my family tree hails from Kansas, and thereabouts(the rest of my people hail from next door in Missouri, another "shadowed" state...). My father and sister were born there. I spent endless summers there as a kid, fishing, swimming, and sweating in the glorious HHH (Hazy, Hot, and Humid)! Ironically (to me), it was where I remember learning to really love my country, spending hours in the Columbus, Kansas Public Library(SOCIALISM!!), reading biographies of great Americans and their accomplishments. It saddens and angers me to tears, at times, what I see happening there, to MY AMERICA. THEY want their country back? I WANT MY CHILDHOOD BACK, GODDAMMIT!!

  3. You know, where I grew up they always said, "Better dead than Red". Must of been the gift of prophecy.

    Something that I think was not brandished by the left nearly enough is the survey that showed that over 15% of those who think Obama is not or may not be a citizen *also* think that Hawaii is not a state or are not sure.

    As Voltaire said long ago, "I'm not saying that the conservative tend to be stupid. I'm saying the stupid tend to be conservative."

    I am really starting to think that Progressives are going to have to go after intelligence and education. I know that is offensive to the sensibilities to most progressives, and mine as well, but we really have to stop pretending that stupidity is "your opinion".

    Unfortunately, that also means we have to start getting a bit hostile to religiosity. As a person of faith, I know that would affect me as well. However, the right tarts up their ignorance and crazy with Bible verses and a Baby Jesus that weeps more than John Boehner, and corporate groups can legitimize anything to their base by gluing a plastic Jesus to the dashboard. I would gladly accept my expressions of faith in the public square as being viewed as indelicate *if* the same was held true of those who attack education, science, social progress, and international relations.

    We are getting to be well past the point that we should be saying the willfully ignorant, proudly uneducated, and superstitious should not be given footing in the public square.

  5. I'm with Mike on this one. I refuse to compromise with or humor the cretins on the Reicht. Compromising with these dim-wits means moving half way to stupid, and I'M NOT GOING THERE.

    It's also clear to me that Fundamentalist Christians in this country have a screw loose, and are farther from Jesus' camp than the average Muslim. How crapping on the disenfranchised people in our world (read: poor, gay, minority or female) makes one a "Christian" is beyond the understanding of a competent mind.
