  2. I wish Pelosi would get over that "one nation under gawd" bullshit.

    Clearly she needs a history lesson. Our forefathers left England because of institutionalized religion.

    If we're going to give our country over to religion, eventually there's gonna be a religion in power that she might not like...

    "One nation under Xenu?"

  4. Was anyone else irked by the so called 'coverage' on CNN and MSNBC last night? Endless bitching from James Carville on CNN about what a failure the convention was, even though he was talking over all the speeches, so how would he know. In fact, it was literally impossible to actually see or hear 95% of the speeches! Instead you got all the talking heads, with their backs to the convention stage, talking over every speaker. CNN pronounced the night a less than successful kick-off for the Dems. Well, I wouldn't know, since I was stupid enough to TIVO their coverage. The real failure was CNN and MSNBC. I'll be tuning into CSPAN or PBS tonight, so I can hear speeches, rather than endless, bloated rhetoric from self important so called 'journalists'.

  5. Re: to mikeinsanjose: Actually, our forefathers came to this country to found colonies whereon either 1. They were gonna make money, or 2. They were gonna set up enclaves where their particular version of Christianity was going to be the official institution of religion instead of the Church of England, and that religious dissenters may or may not have rights, depending on the particular colony. It was a century and a half later before the idea of a government without an established religion would take hold in any meaningful way, and thus be written into our current constitution. I agree wholeheartedly that all this gawd talk isn't particularly becoming of a secular democracy lacking an established religion, but some perspective on our origins must be acknowledged, because only then will we understand just how far we've come, and really what a miracle it is that the founders of this country were in some very crucial ways more progressive than most of our citizenry today.
