Welcome



Hi, I'm a liberal democrat and atheist. Here's brief description about me.

Some basic purposes of our government as stated in the Constitution are to promote the general welfare. The Declaration of Independence follows the same logic, saying we are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.. I wholeheartedly agree.

Republican Talking Heads: Why does anyone listen to these people? Joe the Plumber, an unlicensed plumber who lied to Obama. Sarah Palin, John McCain  who said "our economy is strong" during the bank failure crisis that we the citizens bailed out while the billionaires who created it lost nothing personally.

Other Topics
I actively support Single Payer Healthcare, I've written why. Here's more info.

Here are some entertaining quotes regarding religion.

The Treaty of Tripoli - (shows we are not a Christian nation)

A Peace treaty between the US and Tripoli of Barbari
Unanimously approved by the Senate on June 7, 1797 and subsequently signed by President John Adams.

Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

--------------------------------------------------

Here are some disturbing quotes from the Bush Family:


George Bush Sr. on atheism:
Question: "Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of Americans who are atheists?"
Bush Sr:.
"No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God."

Bush Family Values
Barbara Bush:
"Why should we hear about body bags and deaths," Barbara Bush said on ABC's "Good Morning America" on March 18, 2003. "Oh, I mean, it's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

George W. Bush:
Bush won't meet with Cindy Sheehan and other protesters.
``...I think it's also important for me to go on with my life, to keep a balanced life.''

A balanced life would be to listen to these protesters for once.

Iraq war protest 2006
Worldwide protest coverage from Seattle's local Fox affiliate and I appear about 40 seconds into this 80 second clip after talking a wandering cameraman into taking some footage of me that got on air.



--------------------------------------
The Telegraph reported in November of 2005 about this war crime "trophy" video. It appears to show private security guards in Baghdad randomly shooting Iraqi civilians. The video first appeared on a website that has been linked unofficially to Aegis Defence Services who were under contract to the U.S.

Former Texas Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes
Admits getting Bush into the National Guard, keeping him safe from combat.


--------------------------------------
Bush jokes about not being able to find WMD's in Iraq (March 2004) as reported by The Guardian. He did this at the Annual dinner of the Radio and Television Correspondents' Association. At the end of his presentation he used images of American soldiers to support his murderous war. He should be in jail for his lies that took us to war.
