Just how much is a one way ticket to India?


I've said it dozens of times. People here in Tennessee are batshit religiously insane.

Just look at that monstrosity. A $260,000, seven story monument to ignorance.

That's it. I'm moving to Germany and crashing on Again's couch.

Ohh no wait. Better yet: India and crashing on Barnita's couch.

(sorry Again, she has a tattoo I'm dying to see)

Thanks to Tennessee Guerilla Women for the pic and the coverage.

That is just about the most uninspiring, cliche, pathetic thing I've ever seen (after the Bush administration, of course).

Time to order myself a few more rolls of Freedumb Paper.

Miss Liberty is a French, Brian - that is an insult to every self-thinking person...

Freedom "under" Faith isn't possible - faith sets limits, that is its first duty, because many too many need limits and restrictions to feel secure (and !! behave somewhat like decent)

If a nation expects to be both ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be. - Thomas Jefferson

Of all the vile, disgusting, low-class, obnoxious, tasteless, egomaniacal, and utterly profane exhibitions I have ever witnessed -- from sanctimonious, bible-thumping "holy rollers" *or* otherwise -- this outrageously bigoted, scurrilously propagandistic desecration of a meaningful national symbol of FREEDOM represents an ALL-TIME LOW. ==== "Liberty" espouses no religion whatsoever! And the original states which ratified the Constitution *insisted* that such be specifically expounded in the very First amendment. (That Bill of Rights was a demand of the states, without which the Constitution would not have been accepted.) ==== If the Federal government does not vigorously respond to that outrage by completely revoking any tax-exempt status that Xianist CULT may enjoy under the principle of "separation of church and state" -- which the sect itself has thoroghly violated by appropriating that national imagery and degrading it into a symbol of massive religious INTOLERANCE -- I certainly hope that some "upstanding citizen" eventually finds in his or her heart the righteous indignation to shove a rather large stick of dynamite up "Lady Theocracy's" ASS! ==== To think that the closet Nazis of this Congress very nearly *passed*, this time around, their long sought-after, utterly anti-Constitutional flag-burning amendment -- thereby ostensibly "sanctifying" a banal symbol that has NO intrinsic connotation (it's JUST a goddamn flag!) -- yet will very likely coyly "wink" at this vulgar monstrosity, which abrogates the very notion of religious freedom upon which this nation was founded, is enough to make one violently ill. Pass the [Am]air[ika]-sick bag, please!!!

Yes, there is nothing free about religion. God is an evil guy, he makes his children kill for him. And still they love him. He bribes them with dreams of heaven. LOL. What am I saying? Ok I'm more stoned than thought I was. Back to work now.

P.S- I have a nice and comfy couch. Anytme.

Re: Freedumb Paper ==== ML: Thanks, I like it! And obviously, it's *extremely* popular, since it's completely SOLD OUT! :-) ==== Good seeing you back, by the way. I was beginning to wonder whether you'd left us.

"God is an evil guy, he makes his children kill for him." ==== Barnita: Nah! Those are strictly "stupid human tricks" (a la David Letterman). God's okay. After all, he does hold the original "patent" on "peace weed". ;-) ==== But regarding the Xian fringe (and even far less radical components), I think Gandhi pretty much had it nailed: "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."

Me no like religion. Me no believe in God. He be reason for much dischord. He is only what some peron made up one night, when he be sitting by ownsome-lonesome and being potted out of brain.

CAn't really convince myself otherwise. The Gods of our religions are not the real Gods - they're fiction. But since they're the ones I must contend with cos there is no way out - living in the same world with billions of believrs - I'd have to agree with Gandhi. As we used to say in school - for an old bald vegetrian, Gandhi was pretty cool.

This quote seems fitting for this monstrosity, creationism, neocons, and the "benevolent America" cliche:

A myth is a fixed way of looking at the world which cannot be destroyed because, looked at through the myth, all evidence supports the myth. -Edward De Bono, consultant, writer, and speaker (1933- )

[OT] Well, it's about goddamn time! Kudos to Representative Chris Shays (also seeking restrictions on the rampant abuse of the "state secrets" privilege), who's clearly decided to take a stand against this regime's notoriously dictatorial arrogance. If this be (finally) the makings of a full-blown "Constitutional crisis", then let us make the most of it!: Rumsfeld Subpoenaed Over Abu Ghraib ==== A Congressional committee subpoenaed Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Friday at the request of U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays. ==== Shays, R-4, sought the subpoena after the Pentagon refused to answer questions regarding allegations that an Army whistleblower faced retaliation for discussing abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison. ==== Shays, chairman of the House Government Reform subcommittee on national security, is investigating allegations made by Army Spec. Samuel Provance that his attempts to provide information to investigators about prison abuses were rebuffed and that he then was retaliated against for providing unclassified information to the media. ==== "The bottom line is it's critical that our oversight inquiries be taken seriously by executive branch departments and that we get timely access to the information we need to do our job," Shays said. ==== "Today we are demanding that the Department of Defense provide information that is critical to our investigation." ...
