The Accursed Anathema of Judeo-Christian History in the Western World: What It Means Today (tags)

The introduction of Christianity in the Roman Empire threatened Rome because even then Christianity seem to create “fanatical” minds—that were willing to die for their faith to a single monotheistic God who was seemingly too jealous and intolerant to tolerate the idea that other Gods also expected respect as worthy. The only loyalty those early proselytes had was a sole loyalty to a God outside the Empire. Then Constantine impressed by such zealots exploited Christian fanaticism as he made Christianity the official Roman religion—creating the especial emergence of Church to State (or as our American forefathers warned “temporal and spiritual tyranny”).

California ZIP codes will be connected to Sen. Feinstein's office.

Your Human Right to Hate (tags)

You have a human and animal right to hatred. Man has been described by philosophers and anthropologists as a creature somewhere between an angel and an ape. But irrespective of how idealistic and divine some people and groups think mankind is capable—the fact is we, Homo sapiens, are creatures of animal impulse and ego defensiveness. You have a right to be who you are—a creature of feelings and thoughts and attitudes. Or to put it another way, you have a right to be a “sentient” being which includes the right to experience hatred.

Blinded by America (tags)

It's far more important for us to criticize ourselves than it is to criticize others. If we want to promote democracy, freedom and peace, we should ensure that our words match our deeds-anything else is complete hypocrisy.

Britt claims (in his article “Fascism Anyone?”) typify fascistic regimes. Here’s a similar look at the list’s back end:

Tucker Carlson is a Thin Idiot (tags)

The fresh-faced pundit, recently pink-slipped by CNN, is bummed that Iraqis aren’t more grateful for all America’s been doing for them, and suggests their ingratitude will likely be shared by the victims of the recent tsunami, what with so many of them being Islamic and all.

YOUTH WILL VOTE BUSH SAYS FAT AUTHOR (tags)

The obese author of "MY AMERICA TOO" appeared on the Dennis Miller show on CNBC which changed it's start time (Al Franken bumped him by starting one half hour earlier on Sundance which likely prompted the change). Most of Miller's campaign teeth have been pulled because it conflicts with what he is good at, intelligent humor.

Bush Making an Issue of Kerry’s Military Service Is Dumber Than--Well, Anything, Rea (tags)

Why would a president who did everything he could to not put on a uniform during wartime but couldn’t wait to don one years later as the most protected person on Earth, cast aspersions about a guy who volunteered to wear one in Vietnam and upon arriving back home as a decorated vet did everything he could to help other soldiers take theirs off? For more details about the Bush Baby’s last-gasp grasp at a straw man, read on.

Protest in Midwest over Media Mogul's manipulations (tags)

Murdoch's network slants the news to please right-wingers who can't stand the truth, and the fans of Fox News are the kinds of folks who like to call themselves "conservatives," as if that is a title that commands respect.

Paul Krugman: It's fair to be uncivil when liberty is at stake (tags)

'One of the problems with media coverage of this administration," wrote Eric Alterman in The Nation, "is that it requires bad manners." He's right. There's no nice way to explain how the Bush administration uses cooked numbers to sell its tax cuts, or how its arrogance and gullibility led to the current mess in Iraq. So it was predictable that the administration and its allies, no longer very successful at claiming that questioning the president is unpatriotic, would use appeals to good manners as a way to silence critics. Not, mind you, that Emily Post, the doyenne of etiquette, has taken over the Republican Party: The same people who denounce liberal incivility continue to impugn the motives of their opponents.

Say no to the California recall and Schwarzenegger the Liar (tags)

Schwarzenegger said in his announcement on Jay Leno’s show that he would not accept special interest money and would be beholden to no one but “the people.” Then he turned around and raised millions from special business interests for his campaign, including from at least one company that violated environmental laws. He is just another lying, hypocritical Republican.

Ann Coulter exposes liberal hypocrisy (again). (tags)

Liberalize The Media (tags)

"The media is kind of weird these days on politics," former Vice President Al Gore is quoted as saying in the June 30, 2003 issue of Time Magazine. "There are some major institutional voices that are, truthfully speaking, part and parcel of the Republican Party." "Fox News Network, The Washington Times, Rush Limbaugh -- there's a bunch of them," Gore continued, "and some of them are financed by wealthy ultra-conservative billionaires who make political deals with Republican administrations and the rest of the media."
