Time to be back. Ominously exciting times. North Korea. Election in Venezuela. Morales….
Despues de un largo periodo he vuelto..ahora en bilingualidad. Why is people ‘so celebrating Neil Armstrongs’ walk on the moon? Big deal….big deal, I say. ..Im apalled by the lies delivered at the GOP convention. Harvard students cheating..?? chaaaaa nothin new under the godamm sun. Do we have a Higgs still? Denosivians genome sequenced…so???
I can’t stand Jerry Coynes’s sanctimonious wrath over anything that doesnt match his mismatched worldview. Coyne is a DA.
after the sad revisionistic racist south Carolinian debate Newt is caught in his own historical debris: he couldnt possibly survive his history; what a lying megalomaniac, squared headed animal.
UPDATE: he is pissed that Williams asked people not to cheer.They are calling foul play on free speech: cheering a racist megalomaniac could be free speech, but not in my house. good for williams
Islamophobia is not a ‘racist’ term?
Stephen Marche at Esquire jan 2012
“There are some truths so hard to face, so ugly and so at odds with how we imagine the world should be, that nobody can accept them. Here’s one: It is obvious that a class system has arrived in America — a recent study of the thirty-four countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development found that only
Italy and Great Britain have less social mobility. But nobody wants to admit: If your daddy was rich, you’re gonna stay rich, and if your daddy was poor, you’re gonna stay poor. Every instinct in the American gut, every institution, every national symbol, runs on the idea that anybody can make it; the only limits are your own limits. Which is an amazing idea, a gift to the world — just no longer true. Culturally, and in their daily lives, Americans continue to glide through a ghostly land of opportunity they can’t bear to tell themselves isn’t real. It’s the most dangerous lie the country tells itself.”
I find it funky, boring and weird that some take great pains to make a point using somebody else’s work: take AC Grayling in UK for example. He “wrote” Ihe Good book: a humanist bible(?)”, a compilation of wise sacred texts (he unsacres them) of which very little has been heard, thank God. I never read the Good Book, never will and I wonder if Dr GoodHair knows about T Jefferson “bible” (who doesnt anyways?). He could have saved himself a lot of cut and paste, which TJ did not (unsacring the Bible). In any case, USA people refuses to see Jefferson and founding fathers as inheriting the french enlightenment
The Guardian, typically, pontificates about Jefferson and almost anything else in and out of London: “Mitch Horowitz, editor of the new edition, said: “Ethically, Jefferson was a Christian, but – as he put it – ‘a real Christian,’ who believed in the moral philosophy of Christ rather than the religion later created around Christ, which Jefferson felt would have appalled the man himself.” ”Jefferson’s unorthodox approach to Christianity did not go unnoticed at the time, though it might come as a surprise to many on the religious right today, who tend to revere the Founding Fathers. Despite the fact that he would later allow the Capitol building to be used for church services each Sunday, Jefferson was described by preacher John Mason as someone who “writes against the truths of God’s word; who makes not even a profession of Christianity”.
“The author of the declaration of independence had been strongly influenced by the rationalism of enlightenment France, where he served as US ambassador from 1785-1789. Earlier in the century, philosophers such as Voltaire and Rousseau had disparaged the influence of the clergy and Christian institutions and sought to understand Jesus as a man whose teachings had been distorted by later generations.” (read carefully atheists: you are 300 years late)”.
Last gop (I refuse to use capitals) debate was a debacle: The dish Sullivan had to take a shower afterwards, was repulsed he was. I took a shower during: so repulsed I was. Now that most aspirants have seppuku, 切腹, themselves almost to death, and Callista is increasing her visibility, while Dems and others (me) grin, widely.
These gang of racists, liars, ignorant jerks running for president? We deserve it. I would say. But people there mostly was cheerful, booing Juan (Williams), cheering Newt racist and bewildering remarks. Perry claiming Turkey is a terrorist state? Newt accusing Barack of being a Food stamp president? Did Newt attend SNL seminars?
Gorgeous work (from La Tercera) Romero and Smith model Santiago,
After watching CBS morning news, I would like to suggest atheists read Dale Carnegies’ : “How to win friends and influence people”…..” (million citizens and all over the world take the expensive course!!).
