Thanks for the Reminder

I received a helpful reminder in an e-mail message this afternoon:

Jesus

Jesus died over 2000 years ago. Nobody has ever referred to him as the late Jesus, Not even the heathens. Nowhere in history. Nowhere has He EVER been referred to in the past tense! He is the Living God!

97% OF YOU [...]

Why an Americans Elect Signature Gatherer in California Called it Quits

Levi Denham, a former signature gatherer for Americans Elect in the state of California, wrote to me last week to explain why he’s refused to collect signatures for the 501c4 corporation’s presidential election effort any more:

I wanted to find a way to pitch this to people without feeling deceitful. Signing a petition that could [...]

Yes We Can Offer You Anti-Obama Merch

Rich Weitzman writes in today with a pointed question:

Enough with Bush, that is old news. Where are your anti-Obama products??? Especially since this moron just started a war in Libya???!!!

That’s a good question, Rich, and I have what I hope is a good answer: that we do offer anti-Obama products of various sorts, [...]

Allyson Schwartz Delivers Empty, Incorrect Message on the Patriot Act

Regular reader and Pennsylvania Green Party activist Ross Levin asked me to share a letter he received from his member of Congress, Representative Allyson Schwartz. Ross had asked Rep. Schwartz to explain why she had repeatedly supported reauthorization of the Patriot Act without any reforms (voting YES for Patriot Act powers most recently in February [...]

In this morning’s e-mail, Irregular Times received the following message:

Joys of Muslim Women by Nonie Darwish…

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. and Canada to elect the President or Prime Minister by themselves! Rest assured they will do so… You can look at how they have taken over [...]

#9 Way to Exasperate a Liberal: Start another Conservative Kill ‘Em All Rant

#9 out of our 365 Ways to Exasperate a Liberal: Pick a “Them” and make a call to Kill Them All.

Tim Wildmon and the AFA Caught Bearing False Witness Again

American Family Association President Tim Wildmon got caught bearing false witness last summer. To make a political point, Wildmon wrote of Barack Obama in 2001 that “in that same radio interview he bemoaned the fact that the Warren Supreme Court ‘never entered into the issues of redistribution of wealth.’” This is a false accusation. The [...]

If John Boehner Doesn’t Get His Way, You Didn’t Pray Hard Enough, Bub

In a letter I found in my mailbox today, Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association asked me to pray as hard as the heroic genocidal baby-killers of the Bible.

In a very real sense I am asking you and every other AFA member to act as Aaron and Hur did when Moses prayed to [...]

You’re not Banned and it’s neither Your Country nor Theirs. We’re all Free and it’s Ours.

Irregular Times received an indignant piece of mail this morning:

If Muslims can pray on Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying in public and erecting religious displays on their holy days?

Tell me again, whose country is this? Ours or the Muslims?

The answers are simple.

Christians can and do pray [...]

Fact Check: Did Barack Obama Order the USPS to Issue this Eid Stamp?

This morning, Irregular Times received the following message by e-mail, a cut-and-paste reproduction of a message you can find all over the conservative blogosphere:

Muslim Stamp…………….NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SAY NO TO A MUSLIM STAMP BUT YES TO A STAMP WITH “JESUS CHRIST” ON IT! ——————————————————————————–

Apparently they think that putting “hearts” and “butterflies” on the new stamp [...]

He Should Have Meant it Ironically

Yesterday morning, Tony Caputo sent me a little bit of love mail with this picture attached. Just in case I was wondering whether he agreed, he wrote “I Second That Statement!… A resounding “Amen” to this Sign!!!… This is a great sign… This sign is pure Genius!!!!… The Truest Sign in America Today.”

Tony Caputo [...]
