Pat Robertson tells mother: Your son’s stomach pains are caused by a witch ancestor (article and comment)

I hope this child received the medical attention he needed.  I'm just amazed that in 2014 people still believe illnesses are caused by demons and witches.  If this child dies Pat Robertson should be held responsible.  I'm hoping someone convinced this mother to ignore Pat Robertson's ignorance and get her son proper medical care.

Family says girl scarred by pit bull attack asked to leave restaurant article and comment

I'd like to know what about this girl;s eye patch is so disturbing.  I'd also like to know who the heartless jack ass was that complained and why store employees did not tell him or her to stick a sock in it.  I can't even imagine thinking this is an appropriate response.  KFC owes this girl and her family one heck of an apology.

'Relentless' Boycott Planned Against The Rams as they Drafted Michael Sam

Posted by Zman

This is how twisted this is.  If a player commits murder, sells drugs, beats his spouse or abuses animals that's OK.  But if he's in a loving relationship with another man OMG how horrible, he should not be in the NFL.  Like most boycotts, this one will just go away.   I think I'll be rooting for the St. Louis Rams this year and I hope Micheal Sam plays so well he wins an award at the end of the season.

Another Case of Be Careful What You Wish For, You Might Get It. Florida town’s choice: Violate Supreme Court ruling or open meeting with Satanic prayer

Posted by Zman

I was hoping this would happen. This town fought to be able to have prayer before town meetings,  Well they got what they wished for.  Now they have to allow prayer from any religion or face violating the Supreme Court ruling they fought so hard to win.   This is great.

Constitutional horror: Clarence Thomas argues states can establish official religion

It is scary that a Supreme Court Justice would think this way.  Not only does it violate the Establishment Clause, it violates freedom of Religion.  The article is linked below.

Another Case of Zero Tolerance Stupidity. La Salle Peru Township Highschool suspends girl for two days and bans her from Prom and Graduation for Having an Inhaler in her Purse

Well, one of our local High Schools proves once again how stupid zero tolerance policies are. This young lady was suspended for two days, not allowed to attend her Senior Prom or stand on stage at her graduation for the horrible crime of having a life saving device n her purse.  An inhaler was found in her purse while school employees searched for a cell phone that had been stolen from a woman's restroom.   I'll let the Grandmother of the teen involved give more details.  She wrote this letter to the editor appeared in the La Salle Newws Tribune  the other day.  

"To the dean of students and the board of education at La Salle-Peru High School:

My granddaughter, Haleigh Golgin, is a senior at this school. She was recently suspended for two days not allowed to attend any school function for 30 days — which included prom — and graduating on stage with her classmates.

The reason: a cellphone was stolen from a bathroom at the school, so every girl had her purse searched that used this bathroom. My granddaughter had an inhaler and few Motrin in her purse; she violated their policy of not giving the nurse these items. She had an order from her doctor that she could carry the inhaler but strange enough the nurse could not find it, and she simply forgot to take the six Motrin out of her purse.

So she violated the policy by having an unknown substance in her purse. They were clearly labeled.

When my granddaughter was 13 she died twice. She was a healthy teenager one day and the next day she was fighting for her life. She was put on life support, while we all watched her body shutting down — she was on a ventilator for more then three months and in a coma most of the time. She fought all odds to survive, I watched her every day, sat by her side prayed, made deals with the Lord for a miracle. She had surgeries that left scars that no child should have. She loved softball and was a great pitcher. We loved watching her play; now she cannot play due to her damaged lungs, hence the use of the inhaler.

Do you know what it’s like to not be able to breathe and why God invented inhalers? I watched her go from a shell of a girl who had to learn to walk, talk and use her hands again and what struggles she overcame. She is a miracle. She missed most of her eighth grade year at Parkside in Peru but was allowed to graduate on stage with her classmates, she made it across the stage with her mother’s help and had a standing ovation.

So you see policies CAN be changed. She fought to continue her schooling, had home teaching, summer school. She learned to eat again, not through her stomach from a tube but actually with a fork. She had perfect attendance at school did not even skip on senior skip day.

Policy or not, what you did was unforgivable — you would not even return my son’s phone calls. Prom and graduation were important to her.

Virginia Christians prepare for 40-day hunger strike against same-sex marriage (article link and my comments)

Refusing to eat because they are not getting their way? So pretty much they are acting like two year old children. Do they really think fasting will make the state somehow change its mind. Like they are going to say, "Oh a small group of people are not eating so maybe we should discriminate against gay people." Let us know how that works for you.  As I've said before, any god who would expect his or her followers to discriminate against others is not the kind of god I'd want anything to do with.

No More Windows XP?????

myth: windows xp will not disappear from your computer because MS is no longer supporting it.  I hear that daily from customers.  They think they will go turn on their computer and POOF! no OS aka operating system.  Many think they have to go to Windows 8.1.  This is not true. Ubuntu/linux is a free OS that works great from a bootable USB or CD.  Also you can upgrade to Windows 7 if you are not fond of windows (8) 8.1.  I have a macbook and I can even use Ubuntu from a usb stick flash drive.  My mac OS X still works fine but it is a free option to use linux.  Great website for How To Linux is http://www.pendrivelinux.com/tag/usb-ubuntu/

Pat Robertson, Do Christianity a favor and Please get off the Air

Posted by Zman

Recently on the 700 Club TV nut job preacher Pat Robertson commented about how gays used to be stoned to death and how Satan is responsible for the gay rights movement.  (Video and article below) It is people like this guy that give Christians a bad name. Now as most of you know I'm an atheist  but I know not all Christians or religious people think like this nut job. I know many people of many different faiths who are not at all like this.  They are open minded, caring people who treat others with respect and are all for marriage equality.  The problem is I know many who do think that all religious people are this closed minded. Pat, you're not doing anything to help your cause when you continually say nutty and outrageous things like this. Do your religion a favor and get off the air. You're actually making this Satan you talk about seem like the better person and god seem like the closed minded judgmental being that I'd want nothing to do with. . I mean if he is so bad then why would he be for tolerance and treating others equally. You're making this Jesus guy seem like the bad person. Does not sound like the message you should be sending. You're not making this god of yours seem all that appealing. So again. do your religion a favor and get off the air.   You are a very ignorant man who hides behind your religion to spread bigotry and hate.

Did You Know Most Hotels and Motels in the U S do not allow Direct Access to 911?

I heard this on the news this morning and I was not aware of this.  It just escapes me as to why they would even set up these systems this way.  Sadly it took a woman's death to bring this to light and to get something done about it.  My niece is on a band trip out of state and I hope the people over seeing the trip are aware of how the hotel they are staying at handles 911 calls.

From the article.

"DALLAS — Tens of thousands of hotels don't allow guests to directly reach emergency services when they dial 911, according to a national survey taken after a 9-year-old girl couldn't call for help while her mother was being stabbed to death in a Texas motel.
The killing of Kari Hunt Dunn in an East Texas hotel room spurred a petition that has garnered more than 440,000 signatures demanding hotels and motels be required to enable the direct dialing of 911. Many hotels require callers to dial "9'' before 911 or have some other system, such as calling first to the front desk, which advocates say can lead to panic and confusion in an emergency."

Besides The Hunger Games and Divergent, These Five Dystopias Should Also Get Film Adaptations.

Posted by Zman

As promised on the show the last two weeks, here's a blog post.  Now most of us know unless you've been living in a cave somewhere deep in the Rocky Mountains and even then you may know that Dystopian Societies are the big thing right now in young adult lit. Although both the Hunger Games and Divergent have much wider appeal to many different age groups from young adults to grandparents.  I have grandmothers I work with who are hooked on both series.  And if you listen to our radio show or know me in person you know I'm hooked on both series.  The success of The Hunger Games and Divergent has led many more young adults and teens to read more and that is always a good thing.    For those who don't know what Dystopia is  the opposite of a utopia, a time and place in which humanity is in some capacity repressed, held back, and lacking liberty in some capacity.  And with both series being adapted to film and getting rave reviews it is getting more people turned on to the genera.  We just sw Divergent today infact and it was very well done.  We'll talk about it more on tomorrows Candidradio Live on www.sky106.net at 7 PM EDT.  Anyway, the folowing article talks about five other Dystopian books that should be adapted to film and these are books I'll be adding to my reading list.

After threats and harassment, NC teen abandons atheist group

From the article,  "The whole episode is a sad and painful reminder of the formal and informal persecution, intimidation and harassment that atheists, agnostics and other freethinkers often must face.
It is also a stinging indictment of the hypocrisy, the arrogance, and the cruelty of the Christian community at large. One can only wonder, where were the so called “good Christians” while this teen was being threatened and harassed?"   Also the one girl who called her satin is not all that smart,  We atheists don't believe in a satin.  Just shows how ignorant some of these people are.

10 Things Never to Say to a New Midlife Mother

As we have some friends who have not had their first child until they were in their forties we've heard all the comments they have heard.  One friend who had her first at 39 had a waitress in a shocked voice ask our friend "How Old Are You"? The waitress was about seventeen and seemed to be utterly shocked that a woman in her thirties would dare have a child.   Seems that when you do something other perceive as "not normal"  there is always some rude moron that will make some dumb comment on it.  I cane across this article that goes over the 10 things you should never say to a new midlife mother and some good responses to give if you are a midlife mother and some idiot feels the need to say any of this crap to you.

From the article.

"1. "Are you the grandmother?"
Unless you need to ask this to determine whether an AARP card is applicable, or to somehow confirm lineage, don't even ask. Not only is this a painful question for any woman/mother over 40, but if applied incorrectly, it's an insult to the children who are usually listening. Think about the overall cost/benefit of asking this question, especially if little ones are in tow.
2. "How old were you when you had/adopted your child?"
Is this your business?
3. "Do you know how selfish you are?"
This references the fact that I may die long before I get to experience my children's milestones and leave my children motherless. However, people die at every age. Long life is not a sure bet for anyone.
4. "Why would you have/adopt a child at your age?"
Why not?"
