The Worst Movies of 2013

Reading the plots of the movies on this list I can see why we don't go to or rent movies hardly at all anymore.  If this is what Hollywood thinks is entertaining, no thanks,  I'll pass.  Not to sound like my grandparents but I can't believe people actually pay money to see this stuff.  Most of the movies on this list I would not go see if someone paid me.

Here's the link to the list.

My Thoughts on the Guy on Facebook Holding the Poster that says, "My Wife Will Give Me A Baby If I Get So Many Likes.

Posted by Zman

I've seen the picture of the guy holing the poster that reads, "if I get 500,000 likes my wife will give me a baby." on a few friends Facebook walls the last couple days. I really don't think major life decisions like having a baby should be made based on how many Facebook likes you get. I just can't even imagine how some people think that is actually a good idea. The choice weather or not to have kids should be taken a little more seriously.

Another couple found guilty of murder for parenting by "To Train Up a Child"

The Pearls are purely sick, evil, twisted individuals who have no business giving parenting advice. From the below article here is some of their parenting, "advice" "Using plastic tubing to beat children, since it hurts a lot but leaves fewer marks to alert authorities Wearing the plastic tubing around the parent's neck as a constant reminder to obey "Swatting" babies as young as six months old with instruments such as "a 12-inch willowy branch," thinner plastic tubing or a wooden spoon "Blanket training" babies by hitting them with an instrument if they try to crawl off a blanket on the floor Beating older children with rulers, paddles, belts and larger tree branches "Training" children with pain before they even disobey, in order to teach total obedience Giving cold water baths, putting children outside in cold weather and withholding meals as discipline Hosing off children who have potty training accidents Inflicting punishment until a child is "without breath to complain." That's not parenting, that is abuse and these sick, evil, child abusers need to be stopped. If the god they believe in supporst this kind of parenting than I cetainly want no part of a god like that. Full article and more info about Micheal and Debbi Pearl here

Massachusetts Just celebrated Ten Years of Marriage Equality, So Where Is All This Bad Stuff that is Supposed to Happen

First we here at Candidradio would like to congratulate Massachusetts on ten years of marriage equality and we are glad our home state of Illinois has finally approved the measure which will be signed in to law by Governor Pat Quinn this week. On the live show and the podcast we have talked about just how silly the anti marriage equality arguments are. They would be laughable if there were not people ignorant enough to believe them. They predict all kinds of dire consequences if we allow couples of the same sex to marry. Some even try to use the bible as an argument to why it should not be allowed but as we've pointed out many times with all the other things banned by the book of Leviticus: tattoos, eating shellfish, working on Sundays, Playing soccer on Sunday, wearing mixed fabric, There is even a requirement that a woman who has been raped has to marry her rapist, parents can kill their disobedient children, and the list goes on, that using the bible is a pretty weak argument. So now with Massachusetts having same sex marriage legal for ten years and many other countries having it for far longer, where are all these bad things that are supposed to happen. They claim it will lead to the "downfall of society as we know it" yet there is no evidence of this happening. They claim it will somehow "cheapen the family unit." again no evidence of this happening. The silly claims by the far religious right go on and on and you've heard us talk and blog about them many times. The one thing all of these silly arguments against marriage equality have in common is none of these homophobes can tell us how this stuff will happen or give any evidence that it is happening anywhere. The reason is because there arguments are false and deep down they know it. Their way of thinking is based on ignorance and fear and is thankfully dying off. Sixteen states in the U S have now approved marriage equality and the number is growing. hopefully in our lifetime marriage equality will be the law of the land and the homophobes like the Illinois Family Institute, Focus on the Family, and the American Family Association who try to hide their hate behind religion will be nothing more than a part of history that people just laugh about how ignorant and hateful those groups are. Granted there will always be homophobic people but hopefully as time goes on and we are seeing it today, that way of thinking becomes less appropriate and people except others for who they are. So congratulations Massachusetts on ten years of Marriage equality. Let's hope the rest of the country catches up very soon.

The Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas Debate Part 1458725695123 and One Thrid

Posted by Zman I'm seeing the "say Merry Christmas and not Happy Holidays" posts on my feed. I've never understood why some people get upset over a greeting or think it is somehow, "taking the Christ out of Christmas" Don't these people realize that happy Holidays simply refers to the entire holiday season. Merry Christmas refers to the specific holiday. and despite what these people want you to believe. People have been saying Happy Holidays for years, decades even. and how exactly does what someone calls it have any effect on how you celebrate Christmas? I get the feeling some people are not happy unles they feel persecuted. They call that a persecution complex. It seems in the past ten or fifteen years that some have decided to take offence to it. Trust me, no one is trying to take the Christ outof Christmas. There is no war on Christmas. Look around during the season. You can't breathe without being hit in the face with all kinds of Christmas stuff. If you're getting upset over a greeting then you're missing the whole point of the season. With all the problems going on around the world isn't it a bit silly to get upset over how someone greets you during what is supposed to be a festive season? You'd think if these people are so concerned over what they see as the "true meaning of the holidays" they'd be more upset over the commercialism of the holiday than a greeting. I mean there's something to get upset over. Not how someone greets you. Talk about getting upset over the wrong thing. I'm an atheist and I agree the holidays are way to commercialized. and yet I find the most strident Christmas supporters are the ones spending hundreds of dollars on their kids etc. yep, that's the reason for the season folks - maxing out the credit card, right?

The Radical Notion That Children Are People

Posted by Zman I really cannot think of anything else to add. This article says it best. Friom the article, "And so I have to wonder, what is it with this idea that violence against children is something to be treated so lightly, like a joke, or even directly embraced? What is this?! We wouldn’t let people get away with saying “back in the day, when we could beat our wives without being sent to jail, women knew to keep their clothes on and their mouths shut.” We wouldn’t let people get away with saying “back in the day, when blacks had to serve their masters or else face a beating, they weren’t lazy layabouts like today.” So why do people think they can get away with reminiscing fondly about the days when children got an “ass whooping” if they stepped out of line? How do people think this is acceptable?! The truth is that we live in a society that is not kind to children. Full article here.

North Dakota Mom Gives Fat Shaming Note On Halloween In Lieu Of Candy Read more at

How about if this judgmental ignorant piece of crap mind her own business and not tell others how they should raise their kids. I have a better idea on what this woman can do if she is so concerned about child hood obesity. Instead of writing an ignorant fat shaming note, how about handing out healthy snacks or don't even turn your light on in the first place. A letter like this will do far more damage than it will do good. My friend Kim wrote a great article in response to this "woman's" letter and you can read her article below.

Wal-Mart Employee Terminated for Defending a Female Assault Victim (Video)

Pretty sad when a company fires someone for doing the right thing. Did they expect him to just stand there and do nothing? Well,knowing Walmart they probably did. From the article "Apparently, Wal-Mart is also in the business of rolling back logic. A Hartland, MI branch of the community-killing “big-box” store has made a surprising move after a brave employee jumped to a woman’s rescue at around 2:30 am outside the store. Kristopher Oswald, who had been working at the store stocking pet food on the overnight shift for about seven weeks. He was enjoying his lunch break when he heard a woman screaming, and saw a man hanging on the hood of her car." Link to full story and video

Read This Amazing Letter Addressed To Parents Wanting to Sue Ex-NFL Player After Their Kids Wrecked His House (Video)

It's a sad state of affairs when instead of wanting to teach their kids who trashed an ex-NFL player's house about responsibility and accountability, parents would rather sue the ex-NFL player for outing their kids and supposedly "ruining their lives". What kind of parenting is that? These parents are to stupid to ralize that their kids broke the law.  They should be happy he did not have them arrested and hauled off to jail.  and lets not forget the kids outed themselves when they posted the pictures online.  

From the article, 
"Holloway got wind of all this while it was happening thanks to Twitter, and decided to do something about it. What horrible thing did he do? He started a Facebook page called Help Me Save 300 in order to identify the revelers and hold them accountable for their actions. He invited them over to his trashed house for a picnic, and to help clean up the mess. Holloway doesn’t want to punish the kids other than having them help clean up his place, he merely wants to teach them a lesson about accountability and responsibility.
Sounds perfectly noble, right?
Well, in a classic example of irresponsible parents raising bratty, self-important kids, some of the parents are threatening to sue Holloway for outing them and “ruining their kid’s lives”. How exactly does that teach their children a lesson? Those kids broke several laws that night – burglary, vandalism, trespassing, larceny, underage possession of alcohol, etc. – and these parents think the best way to handle it is to sue Holloway for outing their criminal children?"

In Barrow, Alaska, climate change in action

Here is the article we mentioned on the show last night bout climate change.

From the article, "Climate change seems a remote thing to many people, something they think about occasionally, if at all. Their day-to-day weather mostly varies as it has in the past, and they have a good idea of what the seasons will bring. However, for the people who live around the shores of the Arctic Ocean, climate change is plain to see. The dramatic decline of summer and autumn sea ice during the past decade is having profound and sustained impacts on Northern weather and climate. In Alaska, nowhere is this more evident than at Barrow."

How a believer and a non believer can see the same thing two different ways.

Posted by Zman

I find it interesting how those of us who do not believe in a higher being and those who do can see the same event two different ways.  Nothing wrong with that for the most part but it is interesting.  A good example, on Memorial Day weekend back in May Jenn and I were visiting family grave sites with my family who are religious.  We were at my uncle's grave.  He passes away just over nine years ago and he loved going to Wisconsin as we all do in my family.  My mom related a story about just after he passed away and was buried she and my aunt were visiting his grave near sundown and a deer walked to the edge of the wooded area next to the cemetery, looked right at them and slowly walked away.  My mom took that a a "spiritual sign."  Nothing wrong with that of course.  Does not do anyone any harm as in that case religion is not being used to discriminate.  Now me being an Atheist and a skeptic just saw that as something that a deer would do.  You have a wooded area where deer hang out next to a cemetery where people go.  Deer are probably used to seeing people and will probably stand and watch for a few minutes and slowly walk away especially near sundown when deer tend to venture out of the woods.  But people like to make connections where none exist.  It's a coping mechanism.  Nothing wrong with that in most cases.  If someone gets meaning out of something like that and helps them cope with the loss of a loved one no harm to anyone.  I just find it interesting that people find spiritual meaning in things that happen naturally and how a believer interprets things that can be easily explained.

Teen ‘Exorcists’ Claim Harry Potter Books Allow Demons To Possess Readers

There are still nuts out there trying to claim that Harry Potter books are leading children to witchcraft and the spells in the books are real.  Of course they have no facts to back up their false claims but then again, when have these self-righteous charlatans ever let facts get in the way.  It is also sad that this father has brain washed his daughters.

From the article.

"It’s not bad enough that these sort of charlatans take advantage of superstitious Americans, now they have to go embarrass us in other countries? Here we have an example of the worst of America – self-righteousness coupled with arrogance, the very basis of the “ugly American” stereotype – being foisted upon the hapless citizens of London. These three aren’t physically ugly but their message is decidedly unlovely: London’s teens need to undergo exorcisms!
Brynne Larson, along with sisters Tess and Savannah Scherkenback, are the subjects of a recent documentary by Charlet Duboc of Vice. She followed the trio, along with Brynne’s daddy, Bob Larson (who we shall get to in a bit), through the Ukraine, documenting the “exorcisms” they performed. Now the team has descended upon London, a city which, according to Savannah, is a hotbed of occult activity:
“It has been centuries in the making, but I believe it came to a pinnacle with the Harry Potter books.” “The spells you are reading about are not made up,” adds Tess. “They are real and come from witchcraft.  
Pardon me a brief facepalm. It amazes me that some people can’t tell fiction from fact. Maybe it’s a kind of wish-fulfillment or hysterical blindness, I don’t know. What I do know is that the spells in the Harry Potter books are make-believe. J.K. Rowling has explained this on many occasions. Trust me, witches can’t wave a wand, say a word and *poof* – if we could, I would be living in a big house in Hawai’i with a view of the Kona Coast and a billion dollars in the bank.

From my friend Steph at the Moral Outrage Blog, "FYI: If You're Blogging About How Other People Should Portray Themselves on Social Media

There is an article going around on social media about how girls should portray themselves on Facebook, you've probably seen it.  My friend Steph who does the "Moral Outrage" blog has a great response and I'd like to share her blog post with you.  

"From the Article," This article about how girls should handle themselves on social media has been going around, and I read a response to it this morning- actually, before I read the actual article- that had some good thoughts, but I wanted to try to put my own thoughts and words down about it.

First of all, it's mildly weird and creepy that you, lady, and your husband, are going through facebook photos of people you aren't facebook friends with. When the photos are public, we refer to that as as 'creeping' or 'photo stalking'. And it's something people do but it's a little weird. If you're doing it by logging into someone else's account or looking over their shoulder, and they are photos you normally wouldn't be able to see due to privacy settings, it's even creepier"

Streator Illinois loses drug dectecting dog, Chief of Police rather cold about it.

When a police dog or any dog for that matter dies, this is probably not the way the police chief should announce it.  "Streator's newest drug-detecting dog, Riky, died of natural causes this weekend. Chief Kurt Pastirik said the dog is under full warranty and the city will be getting one to replace him."

The dog is a living breathing being, not a dish washer or TV. Plus the dog was a member of the police force.  That was a rather cold heartless way to announce the death of a member of law enforcement. 

Uncreative Christian Pastor Rails Against the Evils of Rock and Roll Music

You'll get a big kick out of this one.  Religious nut case preacher John Hagee said at a sermon this weekend that " rock and roll music "is nothing more than Satanic cyanide" that needs to be taken outside of the home and burned:"  

didn't we hear this load of crap back in the 1980's?  I think he's a little late to the table on this one.  Mr. Hagee, the 1980's called, they want there religious nuts back.  We have enough of them here in 2013.  I mean calling rock music satanic? I knew these nuts were not very original but this is so dumb it is almost funny.  I also wonder if he has actually listened to rock music.  Probably not,  I'm also guessing he's never actually read the full bible either.  Most of these preacher nuts have not. 

If you want more of John Hegee's hilarity the full article is here

KTVU Pranked With Fake Asiana Flight 214 Pilot Names (Video)

Really, they actually fell for this one.  You'd think the names would have given them some clue that it was a prank.  Plus the NTSB does not reveal pilots names who are involved in crashes.  Somebody in their news department obviously is not all that bright.

University of Virginia student arrested in near fatal mix-up with police—for buying bottled water

Posted by Zman

The actions of the police in this case are inexcusable.  First, even if they thought she was buying beer illegally the use of this kind of force was uncalled for.  Second.  Maybe they should have identified themselves as police officers.  She had no way of knowing these baffoons were cops.  All she knew was some crazed nuts with guns were tryig to break in to her car and probably kidnap and gang rape her and her room mate.  To top it off, she had bottled water not beer.  Now I don't know about you but I'm legally blind, have very little eyesight and can tell a case of bottled water from a case of beer.  If these ding dongs can't tell the difference maybe they should not be police officers.  And again, a little overkill for someone you think is buying beer under age.  Sense these officers are apparently too dumb to figure this out I'll help them do this a little better next time.  If you think someoen is buying alcohol illegally pull them over, identify yourself and ask to see their what they bought and tell them what they are suspected of doing.  See, very simple and you don't have to act like a bunch of crazed loons to do it.  There was no excuse for this action and the person who gave the green light for this and actually thought this was a good way to stop underage people from buying booze needs to be fired, tarred, feathered, and run out of town.  Oh, they actually charged her with a felony too for allegedly hitting one of the officers with her car even though she did not know he was an officer.  Thankfully they dropped that charge.  Thankfully the twenty year old woman and her room ate were not hurt of killed.  I might recommend the bunch of bozo's running this police department re think their policy on how to deal with under age drinking.  My dead grandmother (may she rest in peace) could have handled this better.  At least the police are keeping the  streets safe from those juvenile delinquents who are buying bottled water.  After all that might lead to other horrible crimes like buying fruits and vegetables maybe even candy bars and potato chips, and we can't have that now can we.

Interesting article The Bible Defines Marriage in many ways.

Those who try to use the argument that the "Bible defines marriage between one man and one woman" to argue against same sex marriage show a lack of biblical literacy.  This article written by three professors.  Two from religious studies and one with a history back ground discuss the many definitions of marriage in the bible showing the holes in the "one man one woman" argument.

Story here. 

I'd recommend sharing this story with anyone you know who tries to use the "bible defines marriage between one man and won woman" argument.

One of the Silliest Facebook Religious Memes I've Ever Seen.

Ok, We've all seen Facebook mems Some are funny, some are dumb, and some are just plain strange.  I saw a religious one yesterday that trued to sight the source as proof of itself.   The meme had a picture of the bible and the caption read, "proof that god exists."  Really, That would be like me posting a picture of "The Lord of the Rings" series with a caption saying, "Proof Hobbits Exist."  or a pick of the Harry Potter books with a caption "Proof Harry Potter Exists."  Something being in a book does not prove it exists.  If you're going to convince me that this god of yours exists than you're going to have to come up with better evidence than the bible which there is  no archaeological or scientific evidence to back up any of the claims it makes.  Take the story of Noaa's flood for example. The bible tells us that god destroyed  all of man kind except for Noaa and his family. Who he instructed to build and arc to carry him, his family and two of every living animal one male and female so the Earth could be repopulated.  and after this arc was complete god would then unleash a storm that would last forty days and forty nights and flood the entire planet.  Problem is a storm like that is impossible.  The way weather patterns work just would not allow a storm like that to happen on that massive scale.  Just think of the amount of evaporation that would have to occur.   Also no evidence of such a flood can be found in the archaeological record. If a flood like that had actually happened it would have left some record behind.  Some would say, "well god hid the evidence."  That does not make any sense,  Why would a god hide such evidence,  if he were trying to teach huanity a lesson you'd think he'd leave evidence for all to see.  Just does not make any sense.  Plus we are still discovering new animal species so there is no way that Noaa could have had two of every animal on the ARK.  Also why would Noaa have needed to put fish on the ARK.  Don't fish live in water?  Seems no one has thought of explaining that one and how would htey ave survived on this Ark for that long out of water?  I'd love to hear how these people explain that one.

Also no evidence has been found to back up the story of the Exodus of Jews from Egypt described in the bible.  They kept meticulous records.  If such a massive departure of people had happened there would be some evidence to back it up.  What I think happened is the plagues described in the bible happened and the story of Moses came out of it to explain the events.  Keep in mind how many things were blamed on the gods or god being angry.  Pretty much every natural disaster was blamed on god being angry with humans for somehow disobeying him.  Now of course we know  that god does  not cause earthquakes, floods, etc.  We know the scientific causes of these things. Well most of us do anyway, Pat Robertson and his followers  still has not figured this out but they may learn it someday.  One can hope. The point is just because a book says something does not make it true.

Here is the archive link to listen to The Zman Express from Friday Evening June 7th

Just wanted to pass on as usual the archive link to my internet radio show on  I was on last night (Friday night) I was filling in for another DJ and littleflurry joined me to co host. I did not have my usual show on Tuesday night this past week as we had some server issues.  Anyway,  I have a feeling she'll be co hosting the show on sky 106 with me more often too as she had a blast and may even have her own show too.   It was a lot of fun doing a live show together.  We hope you enjoy it.

Mother Has Son Arrested for Stealing Her Pop Tarts

She has to be the stupidest mother alive.  The police are not much smarter as they actually charged him with a crime. For some reason I'm not surprised she swore at reporters.  Not only is she and the cops for that matter missing a couple of screws,  the whole tool box is empty.  I guess didn't have any real criminals to go after that day.

Oklahoma Tornado victims and all flood victims, we are thinking of you!

From our hearts here in Illinois to you all hit by these horrible tornado breakouts, flooding, we are thinking of you and encourage anyone to do anything they can to help.

At this link you can help those suffering from these natural disasters:

More Stupidity from Pat Robertson, God Caused Midwest Tornadoes Because People Did Not Pray Enough (Video)

In other words he is saying god is mad at people for not praying enough so he sends storms to cause destruction and death to get people to pray?   It made sense to believe that line of thinking back in let's say 1587 but we actually do know what causes tornadoes now.  I won't explain it to you Mr. Robertson as I'm sure it is too beyond your scope of understanding and your small mind mind might not be able to comprehend how weather patterns actually work, but Pat, it has nothing to do with the gods being angry.  You might want to pull your thinking out of the sixteenth century.  Also that makes God seem like a ten year old boy who is mad because he did not get his way so he's throwing a temper tantrum.

NOT so NICECAST, do not use, it does not work

I have tried to use NICECAST BY Rogue Amoeba however after uninstalling and reinstalling the PAID FOR version, it still is not working. When I contacted Rogue Amoeba the first time on 5/13, I sent them screen shots of all the settings. Since then, 7 emails I have sent asking for this to be refunded to me. 59.00. They still refuse to refund for software that DOES NOT WORK.  I have changed the settings to the default servers as when installed new.

This customer service is BEYOND horrible.

How do Those Who Claim They Can Talk to the Dead Actually Do It.

There are many people who claim they can talk to your dead relatives, but can they really.  Here's what they actually do to make you think they are communicating with your dead loved ones.  Read the following article before you go wasting your hard earned money to these frauds.

More proof that Psychics are frauds. Psychic Silvia Browne told Amanda Berry's mother she was Dead back in 2004 on The Montel Williams Show

Wonder how Ms Browne is going to explain this one as Amanda, her six year old daughter and two other women were found alive in a Cleveland home on Tuesday May Sixth. .  You'd think people would stop paying any attention to these people who do nothing but take advantage of those in their time of grief.  

From the original article published back in 2004. 
"For 19 months, Louwana Miller refused to give up hope that her missing daughter might still be alive.
Not anymore.
Desperate for any clue as to Amanda Berry’s whereabouts, and tired of unanswered questions from authorities, Miller turned to a psychic on Montel Williams’ nationally syndicated television show.
The psychic said what the FBI, police and Miller hadn’t.
“She’s not alive, honey,” Sylvia Browne told her matter-of-factly. “Your daughter’s not the kind who wouldn’t call.”
With those blunt words, Browne persuaded Miller to accept a grim probability that has become more likely with each passing day.

More Harmful effects of Abstinence Only Educationi.

Elizabeth Smart, who made national headlines when she was kidnapped from her home at the age of fourteen and found alive nine months later, Now in her mid-twenties, Smart runs a foundation to help educate children about sexual crimes. She now believes that children should grow up learning that “you will always have value and nothing can change that.” recently spoke at John's Hopkins University and said that Abstinence only education teaches rape victims that they are "dirty, filthy, and worthless."  A horrible message to be sending young women.

From the article,  "Smart said she “felt so dirty and so filthy” after she was raped by her captor, and she understands why someone wouldn’t run “because of that alone.”
Smart spoke at a Johns Hopkins human trafficking forum, saying she was raised in a religious household and recalled a school teacher who spoke once about abstinence and compared sex to chewing gum.
“I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’m that chewed up piece of gum, nobody re-chews a piece of gum, you throw it away.’ And that’s how easy it is to feel like you no longer have worth, you no longer have value,” Smart said. “Why would it even be worth screaming out? Why would it even make a difference if you are rescued? Your life still has no value.”  

Full article here  

Abstinence only education clearly does not work and is dangerous.  It needs to be stopped and actual sex education needs to take place.

It is also interesting that the states that push abstinence only education have the highest rates of teen pregnancy and the highest ratees of secually transmitted diseases

From the dumb law suit department Peoria man reportedly files suit against Derrick Rose

In the suit he claims that Rose's absence caused him mental distress and caused him to become obese.  I've heard of some dumb law suits but this has to be one of the dumbest I've heard of.  If a basketball players injury caused Mr. Thompson to have these issues I'd say he either has deeper problems or is looking for a quick way to make a buck.  I hope the judge laughs this guy out of court.

I know it's too soon for those displaced from the 2013 500 yr FLOOD.  But I want to do anything I can to get nationwide support to all those in the path of the FLOOD.  I am going to first talk to any businesses who can pledge storage space for future use, basic needs:clothes, food, drinking water, location to live until those can return home.  If you are a business or individual that can HELP, please use your local media outlets or  More info will be posted here as details go on.  I have no desire to take in cash myself for those flooded.  However I am going to talk to banks and see how fast local banks can set up accounts to donate to.  
I can think of a million things I use daily in my home that will be needed in the future for those flooded.

Backwards thinking GOP Rep Declares No One Except Those Procreating Should Have Sex, Especially Not Gays

So I guess he is saying that couples who are infertile, those like littleflurry and I who don't want kids, and older couples who are past child baring years are not supposed to have sex?  And what is the GOP's obsession with what goes on in peoples bedrooms.  Thankfully the tide is turning and fewer people are not so afraid anymore of natural biology.  A very interesting article on why many in the GOP are afriad of sex is below.

article here

From the article.

"As the states wrangle with the issues of marriage equality and the decriminalization of human behavior as related to consensual, adult sex, the voices of the frightened, the backward, the narrow-minded and the bigots come forward, if not louder, in some cases, crazier. They are, thankfully, becoming outnumbered by those who realize the cultural tide has turned, that despite the hysteria of GOP Christian fundamentalists like Rick Santorum (seen raging here about the suicide of Republicans if they choose to side with marriage equality) or Rep. Hagstrom, America-at-large is slowly becoming weary of this battle, ready to embrace the biology of it all; ready to put aside religious myopia and intolerance to simply accept others as they are, without judgment and certainly without legal intervention, and get on with other issue of importance. Hagstrom and Santorum, quite frankly, are very much on the wrong side of history."

Kansas House Passes Abortion Ban Bill Declaring "Life Begins at Fertilization"

On Friday the Kansas State House passed a sweeping abortion ban that among other things states that, "Life begins at fertilization"  The problem with this thinking is that most fertilized eggs are flushed out during a woman's period.  Most fertilized eggs don't get implanted in the uterus.  So pretty much what these ignorant people are saying is that any woman who has had more than one period and had sex is breaking the law.  Obviously these idiots have no understanding of biology.  Then again who ever accused right wingers of being educated.

April Fools in North Carolina pursue state religion

Two Republican Representatives in North Carolina have proposed a bill that would establish a state religion. This bill clearly violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the U S Constitution and would also deny North Carolina citizens other First Amendment rights.  These ignorant representatives actually think they can pick and choose which parts of the constitution apply to them.  It is both sad and scary that people like this get elected to public office.  Luckily this bill has very little chance of going anywhere and if it did it would be declared unconstitutional.

Here's the full article.

What's even scarier and sadder is they have other ignorant Republicans in the North Carolina House who actually support this bill.

Top Ten Most Ridiculous Republican Anti-Gay Comments, Including Justice Scalia

Hate wrapped in religion is still hate. discrimination wrapped in religion is still discrimination. You cannot use your religious beliefs to spread hate. The idea that same sex marriage will somehow "harm the institution of marriage" is just silly. If gays getting married bothers you that much than that says more about you then the same sex couple who wants to get married. All Americans deserve the same rights. Weather you be gay or straight you should have the right to marry. If you don't agree than you are for discrimination.

CNN Reports On The ‘Promising Future’ of the Steubenville Rapists, Who Are ‘Very Good Students’

I'm going to quote a couple friends who said it perfectly, "Wrong answer. They might have once been 'very good students' with 'promising futures'. Now, they are rapists. Don't try to make them sound soft and cuddly. Soft, cuddly people don't rape. Soft, cuddly people don't take advantage of people who are not capable of consent. They are rapists, and that is now their primary defining characteristic."

" They were taught well to play sports. They were taught well to do academics. Too damned bad someone didn't teach them respect for fellow human beings, and to obtain consent, and to NOT FUCKING RAPE PEOPLE."  

Does not matter how good of students they may have been or if they were great football players.  They raped a 16 year old girl, therefore they are rapists.  They are not the victims so the media needs to stop treating them like they are.    Horrible that a news agency would act this way.
