Sarah Palin Wasilla Church Kooky Masters Commission

The church has already developed some prophecies that reflect upon Sarah Palin’s position as Governor, and as a Vice Presidential candidate. The church’s leaders are proclaiming their belief that Wasilla is the key to God’s plans for Alaska, the United States, and the entire world. [...]

Independent Atheists Unite For Mutual Defense

It’s a small silver lining, but now atheists do share one thing: The need to come together for the sake of mutual defense. We don’t have a political party that will speak up for our rights. We need to speak for ourselves. [...]

FISA Amendments Act Earns Feinstein Opposition

Dianne Feinstein insists that the FISA Amendments Act somehow protects civil liberties. Sadly, that’s a lie. I’ve read the law, and I can state quite clearly that it does not protect civil liberties. It sacrifices them at the altar of Homeland Insecurity. The FISA Amendments Act gives the Attorney General the sole power to declare, without any court’s power to stop it, that the spy programs are legal. Guess who runs the spy programs. Why, goodness me – it’s the Attorney General! [...]

Day of Doom With the FISA Amendments Act

At 10:00 this morning, the Senate will meet to consider the FISA Amendments Act. Please, call your two senators now, through the congressional switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Beg them to vote NO, for freedom’s sake. [...]

Obama Promises Corrupt Religious Kickback Scheme

These religious programs are corrupt. They corrupt the government by setting government policy with the purpose of political allegiance. They corrupt churches by encouraging church leaders to campaign for the candidate who promises to write the biggest government handout check back to the church after Inauguration Day. [...]

Click here for an audio recording of the speech given by Barack Obama today, June 20 2008, reacting in opposition to the passage of H.R. 6304, a bill which would nullify the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Because surely he must have given one, because he specifically committed earlier [...]

Tomorrow, Congress Will Pass a Bill Permitting PHYSICAL SEARCHES without Warrant at its Sole Discretion. Put Down the Chips, Put Down the Remote and Call Your Representative. Now.

This post is also available as a podcast. Listen in if you like.

H.R. 6304 is a bill being pushed so fast that it hasn’t even shown up on Thomas yet for the public to read. Should it pass the House of Representatives tomorrow as scheduled, Americans will be stripped of the legal standing to [...]

Irregular Times Podcast Under the Stars

Three of we who write for Irregular Times met last week near Trumansburg, New York and recorded this podcast under the stars. I feel confident in stating that this is the first podcast in the history of the Universe to incorporate discussion of Seneca Falls, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, South Carolina, populism, American aristocracy, the [...]

Song: All I Ever Want (is for McCain to Make Some Sense)

I figure every election needs an anthem, and from what I’ve heard of the candidates’ own choices, well, we all should try our bit. Here’s my flawed contribution. Apologies to Elvis Costello: I mangled your tune, man, but it was for a good cause.

Here’s the audio, and if you don’t want to listen to [...]

Mohammed The Cartoon Video Podcast

Mohammed wanted to release his own video because, he actually doesn’t mind having cartoons made of him. Look, I know that this goes against Islamic theology, but right here we have the prophet Mohammed on video saying that it’s okay. [...]
