Anti-Obama author D'Souza pleads guilty to campaign finance violation


Favorite Quote: "Brafman, however, indicated he would ask Berman not to impose prison time, telling reporters D'Souza is a "fundamentally honorable man" who had committed an "isolated instance of wrongdoing.""

Cosmos! Ahh, here comes the hatred on parade...

Cosmos is having an impact on the believers; it's bringing all that hatred to the surface rather nicely!

If My Woo Is True, What Does That Make You?

Woo Woo, Boo Hoo, Who are You to not see the Woo? What would you do if the Woo saw you? If you saw the Woo, and It saw you, then you'd be right here where I am, too.

Do you know, it's a funny thing... a lot of the times when the dog wakes up and then the wife does too, or when the dog wakes up and he wakes the wife, I tell her "sorry, it happened again" and she sighs and then listens to me as I tell her what it was like this time, then she usually says something like "the poor dog, I wish you wouldn't do that"...

Back when I was waking my son up in the other room at 4 am or so every fucking time, she used to tell me "please try not to wake him up tonight, I need to sleep...." We even agreed that if I were doing salvia meditations that it was ok to turn off his monitor for a while, because if I can't hear him stir, I never think about him waking up, and when I think about him waking up and hear him when he stirs in his sleep, that's when and why I'd wake him up.. the feedback of hearing his little noises in that state and hoping they weren't the sounds of him awakening was what seemed to feed the cycle, create worry on my part, and causing him to wake up...

The "miraculous" has become mundane in my house. "Honey, stop waking the baby up with your mind, I need my sleep tonight..." lol.... Then I go talk to my atheist friends whom I respect an awful lot and try to figure out how to talk to them about it and not get the standard automated response, but it just isn't possible. What a strange thing life is.

We atheists agree that a god is almost infinitely unlikely, but it's odd, I think, that for some reason that level of certainty is automatically transferred to anything that seems too strange to be true. Happens in science, too. Every great discovery is always met with scorn and derision, then argumentation, and then and only then acceptance, but in the form of pretending to have never disagreed with it. Lol.

The simple (in concept) idea that this reality is actually a dreamlike state that interacts with it's participants, is considered as unlikely as talking snakes and unicorns (which I recently learned are also in the Bible!). It's never factored into that doubt that, by it's very nature, if it were so, we would not be able to tell. It would literally fulfill our expectations when we doubt in it. It would deceive us.

And it's not like what we're seeing in science right now is any more credible than the idea of reality being a communal dreamlike state.

I mean, how familiar are you all with the current front-runner nowadays among cosmologists and quantum physicists, the theory with the most "followers?" It's the Level III multiverse, where every single time we make a decision (or a waveform collapses, which turns out to be the same thing in the sense that decisions are linked to waveform collapse of ions and so forth) the whole universe splits and one of us goes one way and the other one goes the other! Two universes where there was only one!

Or an infinite number go one way and an infinite number go the other! Or infinite numbers of us, infinite "me's" do every possible variation of that decision, making the waveform collapse itself an illusion!

Or the whole universe is a mathematical object! (The Level IV Multiverse)

That last is a real one that is not as popular but it's not laughed at either anymore! (Max Tegmark, "The Mathematical Universe.") (I just read it.)

And there's many other variations on this, one more wild than the other. Compared to the simple sentence "reality is a kind of dream" quantum physics is now the REAL WOO!

If reality is a mathematical object (quite possible I think) or a multiverse that just prints up zillions of complete universes every microsecond, then now we're forced to ask, how is that credible and a dream reality just obviously fucking nuts? As to the mathematical option, if true, how does living in a mathematical construct as sentient mathematical objects ourselves feel so real to us? How can it? And how far is all of this from it being a dreamlike thing, really? Math alone can apparently have real existence in this universe, even form it! Universes can split into infinite parallel copies every millisecond!

Stuff like that can go on in an imagination, but certainly not in our reality! What are they even thinking? That's craziness...

Why, it's almost like their saying that the Universe is like a Big Brain or something...

"On Thursday evening, as the news broke that conservative author Dinesh D'Souza had been indicted by the feds for allegedly making illegal campaign donations to an unnamed 2012 Senate candidate (widely presumed to be Wendy Long, a long-shot Republican who was crushed by incumbent Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in New York), liberal commentators had trouble hiding their glee—or, what I called on Twitter, Dineshenfreude. After all, for years D'Souza has been a right-wing bad boy spouting the most noxious criticism of the left and being rewarded for his exploits. More recently, he was the fellow who derived the odious theory that President Barack Obama could only be understood if viewed as the secret keeper of the flame of Kenyan anti-colonialism—a notion that Newt Gingrich giddily embraced and promoted. D'Souza's movie, 2016: Obama's America, contends that Obama, driven by the remnants of this anti-colonial rage inherited from his father, had a covert second-term plan to weaken and impoverish the United States of America. It depicts Obama as anti-American, anti-Western, and anti-white."
-David Corn, "Mother Jones"

Great word, David Corn!

I find myself so immersed in dineshenfreude right now that I need to pee. It can't be good to feel so good about that little Indian weasel getting nailed for sleaze; I'm sure it will affect the disposition of my immortal soul... wait... I'm an atheist, so who cares? That smug greasy snake-oil-peddling hatemonger had it coming.

Here's a joke: What's the best way to "take out" Dinesh D'Souza?
You pick up Reince Priebus by the ankles and club him to death with him.

I'll be here all week.

Atheist Comeback Is PEFECT

I think this deserves a discussion.

Perfect comeback, no?

Happy Freakin' Holidays, Goddammit!

And so this is Christmas...

Hope all of you are looking forward to a better New Year

(Insert additional platitudes here)

Hey, if we satanic demonic hateful fuckwad liberals are at war with it, we're not very good at war. It's eating the calendar alive.

Another year of Fox News Libel against us, another year of right-wing Christians convinced that we're the evil ones, all while they're doing all the hating.

Another year of Obamaphobia on the right.


Yes, the gift of Christianity is self-righteousness and Pride. How nice.

Hey, whatever... we will all go back to our lives, secure in the knowledge that a sub-culture of shallow idiots will still hate us with all their hearts and souls for the crime of not wanting the whole world to stay the same forever.

On the right the leaders will continue to fill the minds of the shallow with hatred and fear, because without that it all would crumble and they might realize that we're just fucking human beings, too.

Can't have that, now can we?

Oh well... have a happy!

To my Christian brethren out there, be careful what you wish for. After all, without us to hate you might realize that you've been played for fools by desperate, evil men who only seek power over you to get your vote and your money.

I'd love to see you realize that. That would be so sweet. The expression on your faces would be priceless.

Ahh, I can dream, can't I?

The Ring of Truth

I love Pope Francis. Yes, I know, I'm the one that always raves against religion in general and Christianity in particular, but I love this man. He may have his flaws, and I'm sure that he does, but he is one man that has a lot of things right where other religious people have it wrong, and he's not afraid to tell them.

It's about humility. It's about serving others, not yourself. It's about love.

Newsflash! It's not the easy path.

So here's one thing that the new Pope said recently that I *wish* that I'd thought of saying years ago to some of the Christians that have visited here in years past, or just out there in the world in general. I wish I'd thought of posting it to message boards and News Blogs and such.

It's so simple, and so obvious, that I truly think that it might actually get through to some of them.

The exact quote is this:

"If one has the answers to all the questions, that is the proof that God is not with him"

I am stunned by the brilliance of that sentence.

I only wish that it might get through to some of them. To some of those who call themselves Christians and yet somehow have lost their way, have stumbled, have become blinded to the best part of the message.

Can you not hear the ring of truth in it? Are ye deaf as well as blind?

"If one has the answers to all the questions, that is the proof that God is not with him"

Hello everybody, or whoever is left out there that still 'tunes in' every now and then.

It's been a lot of fun, and you apparently can live in the past, can't you?

My interests lie elsewhere, but some of them are still here.

It's been a good run, so why stop it now.? I love you all, so why say goodbye.?

Goodby everybody, or whoever is left out there that still 'tunes in' every now and then.

It's been a lot of fun, but you can't live in the past, can you?

My interests lie elsewhere, and I have limited time now anyhow.

It's been a good run. I love you all.

Today's Infuriating Story

Today's Infuriating Story:

Right-wing Christian: Liberals are the real theocrats because they want to help the poor


What The Fuck?


“What is that saying?” Perkins said. “Is that saying then that the government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what the Scripture says.”

He said The Bible makes clear that individual Christians were expected to care for the needy, but not the government.

“As Christians, we’re responsible for the policies of this government because it’s us,” Perkins said.

Another Family Research Council official said last month that there was “nothing more Christian” than cutting millions of food stamp recipients off of public assistance.

Perkins said Jesus never asked the Roman government occupying Israel during his lifetime to help care for the poor using tax money, which he’d instructed his followers to willingly give up.

“He never said to Rome, to the Romans, ‘Hey, you guys need to make sure that you’re taking out of one person’s pocket to put into another,’” Perkins said.


-Yes, of course, Jesus totally approved of the Romans and the way they treated the poor. Tacit approval. Of course it was. Of course he did. Why, if he had had a chance to change it, to somehow make the Roman government more loving to the poor, perhaps even eliminating starvation in the whole area, he would have totally passed on it. Not his job. Doesn't relate. Very different. Apples and oranges.

They will go to any lengths to deny what they have allowed themselves to become, which is nothing less than their own worst fear. They, more than anyone else, are the "Anti-Christ."


Here's my list of the Modern Right-Wing Christian Sacraments...

-Deception (including self-deception)
-False Pride/Hubris
-Love of Money (Mammon)
-Detachment from Reality
-Contempt for the less fortunate

I bet we can think of a few more, too.
