I’ve never seen an episode of the West Wing, but I would have liked to been there for the episode that has this gem of clip contained within it. I’ve posted this before, but I like it so *poof* here it is again showing exactly why religion, without question, needs to be kept out of […]Continue reading
Dvorak brings his symphony to a majestic close. In two parts due to youtube length limitations. Like the first movement, the fourth begins not with its main theme but with an introduction. 00:00:47 23. The main theme: an imposing march, introduced by trumpets and trombones, with timpani 00:00:48 24. The main theme, part two. A […]Continue reading
“Nothing is free.” Remember that golden nugget of advice given back when you were young? Of course you do, it made you wary of deals that seemed just perfect and produced nothing but unicorns and butterflies and the separation of you and your money once you made the agreement with the con artist in […]Continue reading
This is a compete repost of what guest blogger Starling on Shapely Prose, says about our rape culture and how it works for the people who have no choice but to live within its confines. This is a “S2″ moment, as in Sit the frack down and Shut the frack up. This is how […]Continue reading

Well, not charity in the most traditional sense of the word, but in the sense of regarding arguing with people about ideas and reaching a conclusion or at least more of a mutual understanding of what the other is saying. Inauspiciously, this rarely seems to happen on the internet, as the sectarian nature of […]Continue reading

Fantastic movement, keeps you on the edge of your seat. Follow along with some of the musical highlights. 1. Dvorak, Beethoven, and the Scherzo. Dvorak purposely confuses the listener’s expectations. 00:01:54 2. Using a little fanfare, Dvorak further builds up expectation before revealing the main theme. 00:00:21 3. When the theme is revealed, we find […]Continue reading

The ongoing media campaign to make the economy the monofocus of our societies continues on unabated. Do almost any news search and you will see economic principles overlaid and tied to the idea that somehow they are related to how healthy and how “good” a society actually is. Economic health is but one part […]Continue reading
Ah, the moral paragon that the bible claims to be, yet not one Commandment such as “thou shall not rape”… Pretty easy for an all knowing, all powerful being to foresee no? Apparently not.

The problem with making a reasonable argument is that it takes time and patience to construct properly. Nonstampcollector makes a great video showing exactly how unonbjective the christian god actually is. Guaranteed to make the religious cringe as they face contradiction after contradiction, and precisely why the video appears on this blog. Filed under: Religion […]Continue reading
One of the problems with christianity (and other made up bullshite) is that if given the time to actually think about what believing in it actually entails, you can easily end up among the growing ranks of the unwashed atheist hoard. The problem is squaring with what you been told with what actually is. If […]Continue reading
The stories woven by official narratives often have little to with the reality of the situation. Lewis Lapham, editorially in Harper’s Magazine, was bold enough to contradict the official version of events. He lost subscribers, was labelled “unamerican” and worse, for his views. Listen to what he has to say as we near the approved […]Continue reading

Early primate hunters nearly initiated their own extinction by using the advanced technology of the time to stress their environment and hunt at unsustainable levels. At one time, our future rested on less than 20,000 individuals world wide. Luckily we did not die off completely and came to flourish and expand across the globe. Despite […]Continue reading
Hope and Change. Neither apply to the appallingly right-centre Obama administration. Unless of course you count change for the worse: “President Barack Obama is sacking a controversial proposed regulation tightening government smog standards, bowing to the demands of congressional Republicans and some business leaders.” Oh fantastic, because business has its knickers in a twist and […]Continue reading
