I didn't want to post another article about how faith led to the murder of a bunch more people so soon after posting Islamic Extremism and Paris: Faith Isn't A Fucking Virtue, but here I am.

From the Planned Parenthood Shooter's perspective, his action was rational. This isn't a question of mental illness or insanity. 

He was taught to believe, by faith, that:

If you haven't taken the time to listen to the audio (or read the transcript) on my previous post, Islamic Extremism and Paris: Faith Isn't A Fucking Virtue, please take a few minutes to do that now. It's very important and informs the rest of this post.

This will likely be the most incindiary thing I post on my blog, probably ever. At least, I hope that no situation arises in the future which necessitates doing so. I will be following this up with another blog post in the next few days to talk more about the implications of our current situation, but I leave you with this today. It is the opening of the most recent episode of my favorite podcast, The Scathing Atheist.

I've been blocked by the Old Dixie Pride Facebook page.

I'm sure you can guess how much that hurts me.

The Old Dixie Pride page posts all sorts of stupid images promoting Confederate Flags. My friend, Ryan, and I have been having a great time educating this group of ignorant people about the history they claim to be so proud of.

A buddy of mine recently posted this on Facebook:

"For anyone thinking of voting for Hillary if she is the nominee. What would be the reasoning behind your vote?"

I am open to other candidates, but unless someone I like better comes along, I will likely vote for Clinton.

My reasoning follows this general pattern for any election choice, this one included:

1) Are they smart?

2) Do I agree with their policies?

None of us were really shocked that Cliven Bundy, a Thief and Freeloader who has become a Conservative Hero, turned out to be incredibly racist. However, his criminal behavior is the most important aspect of the story.

The latest news story in conservative media is about a rancher in Nevada named Cliven Bundy. The conservative media will have you know that Cliven is the victim of the Federal government who has taken his property and taken his freedom.

The Republican Party has become so dysfunctional that their elected politicians are downright afraid to even risk saying Obama is an American and was legitimately elected President. It has truly become a sickness among the GOP that such a reasonable statement cannot even be uttered. Congressional Republicans need to dance around it and play word games simply to avoid admitting Obama is an American and was legitimately elected President.

I know I'm a bit behind in posting these thoughts, but my schedule has been pretty tight so I'm still getting through my backlog of posts. There are a lot of questions and bad situations, so I'll try to cover the different points in a simple Q&A.

Should President Obama seek Congressional Approval?

Yes, of course he should.
