If you had the choice between being slapped in the face and slowly boiled to death in cat urine, which would you pick? That’s how I chose the Democrats over the Republicans this election (respectively), despite the fact that I like neither. The Obama Admin’s flavor of corporate favoritism does taste bad, but it’s preferable to the heaping buckets of honey-dipper content that serves as the alternative. Still, overall, I like Barak:

“I’m always amused when I hear these, you know, criticisms of, ‘Oh, you know, Obama wants to grow government,'” Obama said, laughing “No! I would love a nice, lean portfolio to deal with, but that’s not the hand that’s been dealt us.”

At least two parties are necessary to maintain liberty and choice. Unfortunately, the reactionary, bigoted, hypocritical, hateful, dissembling, anti-people morph the Republicans/Conservatives have assumed just won’t do as an alternative to the Democrats. I’m glad to see the recent apparent rise of some reasonable and tolerant Republicans, like Meghan McCain, and I hope they abandon the Evangelical ninnies who have held all of our feet to the fire with their irrational superstition for so long. Most of all, though, I would love to have a sort of political Renaissance in the US engender a cultural and political Age of Reason. Probably not reasonable to expect that…

    So’s everyone who quotes Jesus. While I think Jesus is based on a real person, everything he said was written down twenty to years after he died. I couldn’t tell you the last thing my grandmother said to me and she died two years ago, much less my mother, years ago!

    Jesus simply means Zeus, because there was no “J” in old Latin Jesus, is just another way of saying Hail Zeus, or Hey Zeus, The real name was Immanuel,, it says so in Isaiah,, there is NO JESUS in the old testament or in any other text anywhere on the real name is Immanuel, and the Church hid Immanuel and placed ZEUS in his place and gave a pagan to the people to worship. “The Lord god will slay you Jesus the Myth, and call His Servant by a new name” It’s NOT Jesus.

  12. Duality Good and Evil, right and wrong gets confused by people all the time. You and are no exception. The concept of right and wrong is a perspective in men not an instinct.

    So lets simplify it.

    Whats the opposite of destruction?
    Life or existence.

    So the question remains is life or destruction good or bad in the context of our whole universe.

    Is the universe existence positive or a negative is the lack of anything existing at all a positive or a negative?

    Why?

    For several years, a company called Green Hat (not associated with Red Hat) has been in the business of creating sophisticated software testing equipment for developers, for service-oriented applications that use messaging queues. The problem with distributed application testing is that it’s getting more and more complicated, especially as a multitude of new and independently evolving frameworks introduce dependencies that can’t always be accurately simulated in a test environment. So yesterday’s acquisition of Green Hat by IBM brought up an interesting question: Will a company whose test environments were developed to Oracle, Java Message Service, SAP, Software AG, and TIBCO as well as WebSphere MQ continue to do so after being acquired by the maker of WebSphere MQ? Today, we have the answer. Sponsor In a statement to ReadWriteWeb, the director of product management and strategy for IBM’s Rational division – whose umbrella will now cover Green Hat’s tools as well…

    Notice that Adam never answered me. Does he or doesn ‘t he belive that Jews can be as evil as other humans. That’s a loaded question that someone would jump to answer as Yes or be revealed as bigot…unless they didn’t believe it and insist no one else believe it either.

  21. Nick Clegg’s proposed amendments do not safeguard the NHS against privatisation The last time a proposition was put to the country with such a slippery argument, the Liberal Democrats made a defiant stand, and said “not in our name”. The health and social care bill is not the Iraq war, but the claimed rationale has changed almost as often. At first the big idea was “promoting competition”, which was soon softened into “real choice”, before giving way to some fuzzier notion of devolving power to professionals – who, by the way, mostly bitterly oppose the whole thing. The Lib Dems have undoubtedly extracted a few concessions on the detail during the bill’s turbulent voyage through parliament. But as the final crunch votes loom in the Lords, there is still utter confusion as to the central purpose. The Conservative health secretary, Andrew Lansley, continues to claim that his bill will enable competitive forces to reign as they do in “any other sector”, likening the future NHS…

    Republican and Democrat leaders met with President Obama at the White House to discuss the potential debt limit increase Democrats and Republicans are on another collision course over increasing US borrowing authority as President Barack Obama told Republicans on Wednesday that he does not want spending cuts to accompany such legislation. House of Representatives speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell met at the White House with Obama and Democratic congressional leaders. A Boehner aide said the Speaker – the top-elected Republican – asked Obama if he is proposing that Congress pass a debt limit increase without spending cuts. “The president said, ‘yes,'” the aide said. On Tuesday, Boehner took a hard stance when he warned that any debt limit increase, which likely will be needed at the end of the year, would have to come with spending cuts that would more than offset the higher borrowing authority. White House spokesman Jay Carney did not answer directly…

    Andrew Marr explores the Age of Revolution. In the 17th and 18th centuries, people across the world rose up in the name of freedom and equality against the power of the church and monarchy. In America, people fought a war to be free from British rule. In France, bloody revolution saw the king and aristocracy deposed. And in Haiti, the slaves revolted against their masters. The world was also gripped by a scientific revolution, sweeping away old dogmas and superstition. Galileo revolutionized the way we saw humanity’s place in the universe, while Edward Jenner used science to help save the lives of millions.

    U.S. President Barack Obama is reaching out to what he calls the “caucus of common sense” to stop the $85 billion in government spending cuts that took effect Saturday. Mr. Obama said in his weekly address that there are Republicans who want to end tax breaks for the rich and Democrats who want to reform big government programs like Social Security and Medicare. So, he says he will continue to reach out to both to find a compromise. In the Republican response, …
