The Threesome – an Orgy of Stupidity:

After Michele Bachmann announced earlier this year, that she would not seek re-election -– at the time, I believed this lame duck idiot, would quickly fade into a state of obscurity – that instead of hearing her psychotic ramblings about how deeply the Muslim Brotherhood, had penetrated our Government with the help of the Obama Administration, that she would be spending a lot more time at home, deeply penetrating her gay-hating, gay husband, Marcus, with her favorite strap-on -- one would think that anyone being investigated for campaign violations, and by at least a  half-dozen federal and state agencies, just might want to finish out their term quietly, and just as far under the radar as possible? That is, anyone except this delusional idiotic Christian and moron.

From TMP:

Three Tea Party-supported Republican lawmakers thanked the Egyptian military for both the July 3 overthrow of former President Mohammed Morsi and crackdowns on protesters in the chaotic weeks that followed in a video released Saturday.

 The video, published Saturday, was apparently recorded a few hours after Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Steve King (R-IA) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) met with Egyptian military leader General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi over the weekend, according to the Washington Post.

 “I want to assure the people of Egypt that I, as a member of Congress, will stand strong in support of continuing military support, United States support financially, to stand for the military in Egypt,” said Bachmann, who led the remarks. “We know that you have been a partner. You’ve been a partner in the war on terrorism. You’ve acted bravely here on the front lines.”

Bachmann went on to suggest that the Muslim Brotherhood, the party of the former Egyptian president, was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.


"We have seen the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood has posed, here, for the people of Egypt. We’ve seen the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood posed around the world," she continued. "We stand against this great evil. We remember who caused nine-one-one in America. We remember who it was that killed 3,000 brave Americans. We have not forgotten. We know that you have dealt with that enemy as well.”

I know it’s been 12 years since the attacks happened on September 11 2001, but wasn’t it al-Qaeda terrorists and Osama bin Laden that was blamed for the attacks – and not the “Muslim Brotherhood,” and isn’t Bachmann a member of The House Intelligence Committee?

Personally, I don’t believe any of these 3 clowns understand anything about current Middle Eastern religion/politics – and least of which understand the dynamics of the current situation going on in Egypt.

Bachmann, King and Gohmert have done nothing more than become a major embarrassment here in our own nation – I really don’t understand just what they were hoping to accomplish in Egypt?

Rick Santorum: "colleges and universities are indoctrination mills"

From CBS News:

Obama wants more young adults to go to college so they can undergo "indoctrination" to a secular world DALLAS, Texas - Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum said Thursday that President view.
In an hour-long interview with conservative television host Glenn Beck, Santorum also defended his record on abortion and his vote in favor of President George W. Bush's No Child Left Behind education law.
On the president's efforts to boost college attendance, Santorum said, "I understand why Barack Obama wants to send every kid to college, because of their indoctrination mills, absolutely ... The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country."
He claimed that "62 percent of kids who go into college with a faith commitment leave without it," but declined to cite a source for the figure. And he floated the idea of requiring universities that receive public funds have "intellectual diversity" on campus.

I am not sure just where Santorum is getting his "62 percent" figure from - but I totally agree that there are many students of higher learning, who do in fact leave their delusional religious beliefs behind them after graduation from intuitions of higher education. But the relevant question here is why?

Could the reasons that students of higher learning are leaving their religiously indoctrinated faiths behind them be because for the first time in their lives, they have discover that there are actually other people who hold different religious beliefs than their own or have no religious faith at all. Or could the reasons be, that they have learned the fact that the universe is not thousands of years old, but is in fact billions of years old; or could it be that they have learned the fact, that the universe and all life here on earth, was not created in 6 days, as they were indoctrinated to believe as young children -- when in reality, the real fact is that these processes have taken billions of years, and are still going on even today; or could it be the fact that through the modern science of biology, and the complete DNA mapping of both humans and the great apes, that we now have unquestionable evidence, that both humans and the great apes, both evolved from a common ancestor, and that humans were not instantly created out of mud and a bone, and by, and in the image of some "god," as they had been indoctrinated to believe?

Yes indeed,  when most Christian students, realize that the foundation from which they had based their religious faith upon, was in fact, all just a big heap of delusional bullshit, most often than not, they will in fact abandon their religious faith.

And here in another speech, Rick Santorum said: "President Obama once said he wants everyone in America to go to college ...what a snob." And then still on this "liberal college indoctrination" theme, Santorum claims: "Obama wants to remake you in his own image" (just look at the crowd that Santorum's pitching this ignorant and racist rhetoric to and how they respond). The one thing that Rick Sanitarium has failed to mention, is that he is also a product of these same "liberal public colleges of indoctrination" (but I guess he's one of the other "38" percent, that has managed to hold onto their religious superstition, religious stupidity and religious ignorance).
The fact is that Santorum would like to defund all forms of public education, and then let the parents decide what they want to teach their own children. And he really means this - he and his wife are homeschooling their own children.

I never thought that I would see the day, when the idea of having our nation filled with uneducated and ignorant people, would be seen as such a good thing within the base of any political party. The base of the Republican Party has devolved into a cesspool of far-right Christian ignorance, stupidity and insanity - and this insanity seems to be playing real well to these uneducated anti-intellectual Christian-bottom-feeders (call me a "snob," its OK!).  

My only question is does Rick 'Sanitarium' really believe that playing this insane mix of Christian ideology, will win him the Presidency? I sure hope he wins the GOP nomination!

Obama calling GOP members of congress hypocrites:

President Barack Obama suggested Monday that congressional Republicans were acting hypocritically by opposing an extension and expansion of a payroll tax cut set to expire at the end of this year.

The president assailed the GOP in a statement at the White House, accusing them of reneging on a pledge to not raise taxes by voting against a Democratic proposal that would cut extend the tax cut in 2012, and pay for it by a surtax on the wealthy.

"Now, some Republicans who have pushed back against the idea of extending this payroll tax cut have said you’ve got to pay for this tax cut. I'd just like to point out they haven't always felt that way," Obama said.

"Over the last decade, they didn't feel the need to pay for massive tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans ... Indeed, when the Republicans took over the House at the beginning of this year, they explicitly changed the rules to say that tax cuts don't have to be paid for. So forgive me a little bit of confusion when I hear folks insisting on tax cuts being paid for."

Obama has proposed a 3.25 percent surtax on incomes over $1 million to pay for the middleclass tax cut extensions, and extending unemployment benefits. the Republicans refused to even entertain such an idea as millionaires and billionaires, paying more in taxes – so just what have the Republicans been willing offer as a compromise? A three-year pay freeze for federal workers, and the cutting of 200,000 government jobs. This counter offer was made by Mitch McConnell – the same Mitch McConnell who stated back in 2010: “the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term President.” The Speaker of the Republican controlled House, the orange prick, John Boehner, has suggested that he would support the bill with a rider attached that would accelerate the approval of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, and many of the other Republicans, also want the Bush tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires made permanent as a part of the deal.

Make no mistake about it, this is not about the Republicans becoming fiscally responsible, this is simply about the Republicans obstructing anything that would maintain or improve the current state of the economy – and them believing that the Obama Administration and the Democrats will be blamed for the impending economic disaster.

I hope that Obama and the Democrats gain a lot of political mileage by showing just whose interests the Republicans represent.

Ass-Clown Michele Bachmann:

Last night during the Republican debate, Michele Bachmann was asked which social programs she would cut if she became president. She responded:” I would like to go back and look at Lyndon B. Johnson’s, the Great Society.” She went on to say that the Great Society hasn’t worked, and it has put us into a modern welfare state – “if you look at China, they don’t have food stamps, and people save for their own retirement security, they don’t have AFDC, they don’t have the modern welfare state, and they’re growing.” Michele Bachmann, said???

I just find it astounding that someone as profoundly ignorant, uneducated and just plain stupid as Michele Bachmann was even elected to public office. I wonder if this ignorant idiot understands that food stamps, and the over $250,000 in farm subsidies that she received between 1995 and 2006, are all a part of the same program that she wants to cut (you hypocritical bitch).

Yes China does not have Aid for Depended Children or a food stamp program, Bachmann; however, China is a communist nation with a socialized government. And the vast majority of the workers, don’t make enough money to save for their own anything – and least of which, retirement, and they don’t have too – the government takes care of their basic needs, and their children also help support the parents when they get old as well – and this is why most couples want boys – and because of the one child law, some even kill the girls at birth. And yes Bachmann, China is in fact growing, and they’re growing mainly because of cheap labor, and free prison labor, currency manipulation and unfair trade policies, and a whole host of other reasons.

And both Bachmann and her anti-gay, gay-hating, gay husband both claim to be Christians? I wonder just what it is about the part about feeding the poor that “jesus” “said,” that they just don’t seem to understand.

Herman Cain is also the Sarah Palin’s brother from another mother:

Last night as I was watching the Republican debate and listening to these ass-clowns, trying to come up with coherent answers for simple questions on subjects that one would think that any candidate running for a chance at beating Obama in 2012, and winning the highest office in the land, would have at least taken the time to learn what the facts behind the real issues actually are?

Besides learning that the current frontrunners in this race to the bottom in this cesspool of stupidity and ignorance, both support the use of torture ("enhanced interrogation"), and Herman Cain (the Herman Cain who has said that one of his main priorities in his policy in dealing with China, would be preventing China from developing a nuclear weapon) now wants a clear objective for victory in both of the current wars being fought in the Middle East, and before we even start thinking about bringing our military personal home – sorry Herman, but you’re about 10 years late on the Middle Eastern wars, and almost 50 years late on China. And it also became very clear last night, that Herman Cain doesn’t know jack-shit about the Middle East, or about the different types of religious ideologue, and the direct effect that it has on the politics: however, Cain seems to have developed a new strategy when confronted with questions that he has no fucking clue how to answer – he simply resorts to spewing pretentious rhetoric – this became obvious last night, when he was trying to answer questions about Pakistan and Iran, and even so obvious, that even that cretin from Texas (Governor Rick Perry) looked over at him with a stunned look on his face – like wow, this guy’s even stupider than I am.

Last night’s debate took me back to the day when I heard Sarah Palin’s response to Barbara Walters’ question about if she thought that she could beat Obama in 2012, and Palin responded: “I believe so.” However, I believe Palin soon realized that she had no chance of beating Obama in 2012, or even wining the Republican nomination. So she simply decided to capitalize on her 15 minutes “fame.” Much like Newt Gingrich has been doing all along – the reality is that Gingrich has just a few too many skeletons in his closet to survive a race against Obama and win the White House – and I believe that when the door to Herman Cain’s closet is finally opened, that we’re going to find a whole fucking cemetery in his closet, and complete with an assortment of bats and ravens! And then there’s the fact that Herman Cain is also a lying psychopath:

WASHINGTON (October 10, 2011)—GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain said Monday he didn't want to run for president, but God called him to join the race.

The Republican candidate told CBN News that's why he believes "God's been in this from the beginning."

Cain said that when he felt God calling him to run for president, he resisted just as Moses did after being called by God to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt.

Like Moses, Cain says he told God, "You've got the wrong person. You can't be talking about me."

Cain told CBN News that it took a lot of those "conversations with God" to overcome his reluctance to seek the presidency.

So what about the other current candidates?

Mitt Romney: he is willing to say or do almost anything that will win him points with Christian conservatives. He has already changed his positions on almost everything he stood for when he was the Governor of Massachusetts; like women’s rights, and the abortion issue; health care, and a whole host of other issues as well – and personally, I believe he would even try and change his brand of religious delusion, if he truly believed that would get him into the White House – but conservative Christians, and most of the other Christian-nuts, simply will not vote for a Mormon.

Rick Perry: he will for sure win the support of the “Religious Right,” and most of those delusional and ignorant Christian-nuts in the Deep South, but I don’t believe that most of the other Christians will support this cretin in the general election, nor will the “swing voters.” And Obama would quickly lay his ignorant and delusional, psychotic ass to waste in the debates.

I know that a lot can happen between now and the Presidential Election – but I will say it would be a safe bet that Obama will easily win his second term as President.

So what if my science is wrong? The bible is wrong – part 1:

I remember back in the 1980s when a story was circulating around within the religious community, that “genetic science,” had finally proven that the description given in the bible of “human creation,” was in fact true. That science had proven that the ancestry of every human alive on the earth today, had all been traced back to one single woman – that science had proven the story of Adam and Eve in the bible, was in fact true. The only problem was that the “proof” which they were offering, was not based on real science – in fact, in the 1980s; we simply hadn’t yet developed the technology to base such a conclusion on. So just what was the big deal about proving that the story of Adam and Eve in the bible was in fact true, and why were the religious (mainly the Christians) even willing to manufacture stories, and even tell outright lies? Because the theory of evolution was fast gaining acceptance as a fact, and without dirt man and rib woman, and the talking-snake and the original “sin” (sex) that opened up the door for every other type of “evil,” then there was also no need for a savor – the whole story about Christ dying for our sins, then all falls apart like a house of cards in the wind.

So fast forward to the twenty first century; there are mountains of evidence, which all support evolution as a fact, and with 99.999% certainty; we now know that there was never any less than 5,000 pairs of genes (10,000 almost human and human beings) involved on the road to becoming the human beings that we are today; and we now know with 99.999% certainty, that both humans and all of the great apes, all evolved from a common ancestor – so where does this leave both the stories of Adam and Eve, and the story of “our” “savor” “Jesus Christ”? It leaves them all in the dirt, where they all belonged in the first place.

You really wouldn’t think that there would be much more here to debate on this subject? But there are current debates going on among the Christian scholars:

From NPR:

According to the Bible (Genesis 2:7), this is how humanity began: "The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." God then called the man Adam, and later created Eve from Adam's rib.

Polls by Gallup and the Pew Research Center find that four out of 10 Americans believe this account. It's a central tenet for much of conservative Christianity, from evangelicals to confessional churches such as the Christian Reformed Church.

But now some conservative scholars are saying publicly that they can no longer believe the Genesis account. Asked how likely it is that we all descended from Adam and Eve, Dennis Venema, a biologist at Trinity Western University, replies: "That would be against all the genomic evidence that we've assembled over the last 20 years, so not likely at all."

Researching The Human Genome

Venema says there is no way we can be traced back to a single couple. He says with the mapping of the human genome, it's clear that modern humans emerged from other primates as a large population — long before the Genesis time frame of a few thousand years ago. And given the genetic variation of people today, he says scientists can't get that population size below 10,000 people at any time in our evolutionary history.

To get down to just two ancestors, Venema says, "You would have to postulate that there's been this absolutely astronomical mutation rate that has produced all these new variants in an incredibly short period of time. Those types of mutation rates are just not possible. It would mutate us out of existence."

You can click (here) or anywhere in the above text and the link will take you to NPR and the whole story – it is well worth the read.

In the video below Ken Miller (a catholic) does an excellent job of explaining of how we now know that both humans and the great apes, both evolved from a common ancestor.

I’m going to explain what all of this really means to me in part 2 of this story – but I forewarn you, it will be done in the foul mouth style of The Dyslectic Atheist! But what does this all mean to you as an atheist?

Christian craziness at its finest – molesting the minds of innocent children

Many years ago, my friend tried to adopt a little stray dog that had wandered into his back yard, and had taken-up residency in his tool shed. This dog was extremely thin and mangy, and it had the worst odor of any other dog that I had ever seen before, and this odor was so bad, that I just can’t even begin to find the words, to even describe, just how bad that this dog smelled – my friend had even tried giving this dog a bath, but within minutes, this dog’s bad odor had returned, and had returned with an avenges even (this was simply the most mangy, and the most awful smelling dog that I had ever seen before).

My friend even tried feeding this dog. He had placed a large bowl, filled with dog food, right outside of the tool shed – but days went by, and this dog hadn’t eaten any of the food – it had seemed that this dog had simply disappeared. Then one night, my friend and I were cleaning some fish that we had caught, on a fishing trip the day before on a table in his back yard. And by the time that we had finished cleaning all of the fish, there was a big pile of fish heads and fish guts lying on the ground next to the table – then out of nowhere, comes this mangy and smelly little dog – snarling and growling, and foaming at the mouth. It then runs over to this big pile of dead fish parts, and then starts devouring the fish heads. And then after it had finished eating all of the fish heads, it then ran off and disappeared again.

Then over the next few weeks, my friend started finding the dead carcasses of small animals lying all over his back yard – there were dead rats, dead squirrels, dead cats, and even dead dogs - and all with parts of their heads missing.

Then one evening, and as my friend and I were sitting on the grass in his back yard, and sipping on some cold ones – out of nowhere, came this mangy and smelly little dog. It walks over to my friend and starts sniffing the back of my friends head – it then starts snarling and growling, and foaming at the mouth, and it then starts snapping at the back of my friends head, who then pulls out his pistol, and shoots this dog dead. We then dug a hole in the ground, and bury the thing. A few days later, my friend show’s me what looked like a large molehill, and it was right over the spot where we had buried this dog. We then both got shovels and started digging, but to our surprise, this dead dog was missing – my friend thought that maybe it wasn’t dead when we had buried it? And that it had simply awoke and dug itself out of the earth?

This case of the missing dead dog, had been a very troubling mystery for me for years – that was until last night, when I had watched this video -- at 5:50 in this video, this crazy and delusional, sick bitch, said to these children: “can I tell you a secret, don’t laugh if I tell you this, do you promise not to laugh – I know some kids, that have prayed for their dead animals, and they came back to life.”

Mystery solved ~ and I bet that I even know now, just what had happened to this dog’s first owner: poor kid!

Any reasonable and halfway intelligent adult and with a working brain (that is, a brain that hasn’t been halfway eaten by a Zombie-Dog – or hasn’t been halfway rotted away by Zombie-Jesus) can fully understand that my Zombie-Dog story is simply sarcasm – it’s simply a made up story – it’s simply make believe. And I would never write and post a story like this, anywhere that children the ages of the ones in this video might find it and read it.

To steal a quote from Vjack over at Atheist Revolution: “It really is remarkable, isn't it? It would be so easy to suggest that Ms. Daniels is in dire need of psychiatric treatment, but I think the more interesting question is how many others inhabit this bizarre world in which she apparently lives.”

Well, here’s one even crazier and deluded Christian bitch that we can all try on for size – and I can finally go and throw up now!
