Which proves what I’ve always said: Math is dangerous.

I don’t think it’s fair to label Discordians a “fake” religion just because they admit that it’s all made up. I believe them just as much as I believe any of the others.

The Greatest Fake Religion of All Time
Over fifty years ago, a group of pranksters founded a satiric religion devoted to creating conspiracy theories so insane that nobody would ever believe uncritically in conspiracies again. They called themselves the Discordians. And their weird ideas are still…

I say, hell yes, raise taxes on the rich (again — it used to be that way). Use that money to rebuild our suffering schools and crumbling infrastructure. The rich can move to another country any time they want, anyway — why should we keep bribing them with low taxes to keep them around? We’re a nation that built itself from scratch. Who needs parasitic multibillionaires that are getting far more out of this country than they’re giving back? Their money will still run through the international monetary system whether they’re “living” in America or not, so let’s call their bluff. I’m tired of watching my country fall apart as a trade-off for subsidizing inhumanly rich, greedy people while they tell us how lazy that poor people are.

I’m not talking about raising taxes on struggling people, I’m talking about raising taxes on the highest tippy-top, the ones who’ve benefited so greatly from the Reagan-to-Bush Era tax cuts. And if they don’t like it, fine. Let them move. All that trickle-down crap is nonsense anyway.

Signal boost to an important article, instructive and frightening (I hope) for Americans whether northern or southern.

Similar to what Reagan’s people did to Jimmy Carter with Iran in 1980.

George Will Confirms Nixon’s Vietnam Treason
Richard Nixon was a traitor. The new release of extended versions of Nixon’s papers now confirms this long-standing belief, usually dismissed as a “conspiracy theory” by Republican conservatives. Now it has been substantiated by none other than right-wing columnist George Will. Nixon’s newly…

Sad Dog is sad.

So wonderful to see these ancient critters. I wish they were still around to be admired.

New Flying Reptile Found in “Unprecedented” Pterosaur Boneyard
A huge boneyard of 47 pterosaur fossils has revealed a new species and unprecedented insight into the lifestyles of the…

This would be extremely popular, from my experience.
