Don't have time for much tonight. But I want to post something daily. Ralph Nader has decided to run as an independent. I don't think it will hurt the Democrats chances. Nader will be able to attack Bush and say things the democratic nominee can't. He will also attack the democrat and hopefully keep him honest. In the end Nader won't make much difference. We have already paid a terrible price for some people's choice in the last election to protest vote against the mainstream candidates. Some Nader supporters have even created a website to express their regrets for supporting him last time and indirectly helping Bush win. This time America will compromise for someone, anyone who is not Bush and be thankful.

A New Beginning

After much thought and contemplative analysis, I have decided to start anew with this blog. I deleted the original and all the posts on it. I looked at the criticism of some of the knuckleheads at a local conservative radio talk show host's site and improved the blog by adding a comments section so the conservatives can attempt to refute me or just call me names. Here are some of the stories I am interested in:

Go Larry!

Apparently George W. Bush, in addition to being a drunken, cocaine snorting, Vietnam dodging, AWOL son of an elitist congressman may have also knocked up an underaged girl and coerced her into getting an abortion, which he allegedly paid for. This was pre-Roe-v-Wade so the procedure was illegal and a felony. Larry Flynt (the porn king publisher of Hustler magazine) brought this story to the spotlight way back in 2000 but it faded when Flynt did not publish a book on Dubya. It has recently resurfaced alongside the Texas Air National Guard AWOL claims. My hope is that a revitalized media will follow up on this story and ask hard questions. If it is true, which I am not claiming, it could destroy Bush in the eyes of the conservative Christians who worship the ground he spits on.

The Truth Shall Set You Free

I keep asking the conservatives why they won't just be honest about their hatred of homosexuals but they keep using the disengenous and confusing "sanctity of marriage" argument. It seemed to me that no one admits to hating gay people anymore (hate the sin, love the sinner). Way back in the old days it was much easier to identify and pin down bigots by their cavalier hateful speech when used to describe gays, black, Jews, catholics, women etc. Now they all hide behind the politically correct speech they claim to loathe and buzzwords to communicate their dislike of certain groups. Many still use the hateful terms and epithets but only in the safe company of those with likeminded beliefs. I found a website that still preaches the most hateful intolerant perverse interpretation of the bible I have ever seen. It is not an aryan supremecist site or even some twisted offshoot of Christianity, it is the website of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka Kansas. The right reverend pastor Fred Phelps is an old school bigot with no tolerance for "fags" or people like me, "fag enablers". The chilling name of the site is God Hates Fags and it contains some of the most hateful, venomous, violent speach I have ever read. The sickest part of the site is a memorial to Matthew Shepard. Here is the link to the sickest most perverse thing I have ever seen on the internet (be warned it is horribly hateful and sick and paid for by the members of a Baptist congregation in Topeka Kansas). At least this sick fucking evil preacher is truthful about his feelings and those of his congregation (I wonder why the National Convention of Baptist's allow this deviant preacher to spew his bile filled rants under the banner and blessing of the Baptist church?). I am not comparing all Christians to this piece of shit preacher but I want to hear them take this man and his congregation to task for what he claims God and the Bible not only empower him, but also require him to do and say. It is the only Christian thing to do.

Could it Be?

Also on the internet rumor mill. Did conservative Texas Governor Rick Perry get caught by his wife committing a homosexual act with his Secretary of State? Only a few people know for sure but again the internet chat rooms and gossip pages are filled with claims from sources allegedly in the know. The Governor's wife is said to have retained high powered divorce attorney Becky Beaver (yeah, that's her real name). If this story is true (and I am not claiming it is) it would be devastatingly embarassing for the hypocritical governor who signed a Defense of Marriage Act into law and is on record criticizing gays.
