Earlier today, I came across a Freedom From Religion Foundation blog post by Andrew Seidel. It reads in part:
“Free thought and freethought only exist with the right to dissent and to proclaim that dissent. And yes, to criticize and even mock the ideas of others. Thomas Jefferson wrote to John Adams about his hope […]
On the Saudi television network Al Nas two nights ago, commentator Aadam Alam declared boldly of western Christians, “we need to kill them, we need to kill them“:
“We need to kill them. We need to kill them, the fundamentalist Christian terrorists hell-bent on killing us. You’re in danger. I’m in danger. We’re at war […]
If you spend enough time in alternative medicine forums, you’ll hear a claim like the one William made here today:
“There are cures for Cancer out there but big PHARMA is spending billions to prove that there isnt….because the cures there is no big bucks in natural cures. It all comes down to MONEY…MONEY….MONEY.”
Fox News takes to Twitter again in an attempt to show popular support:
Only 113 for a nationwide network? Ouch. You’d think Fox News would have learned its lesson from its recent #OverIt2014 disaster. Asking its followers to describe all the conservative and Christian-oriented reasons they were glad to see 2014 bite the dust, […]
Here at Irregular Times, we’re assembling a database to closely following the actions of the members of the new 114th Congress; look for it to come out early next week.

If a vulnerable family in need appeared at your door, would you help? Our would you turn them into the cold?
Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee would turn them away. As J. Clifford points out, Mike Huckabee promised in 2008 that he’d take away citizenship from American-born babies if they had non-citizen parents. Wrong blood […]
Someone who names himself the “Manhattan Medium” clearly wants to go somewhere. Thomas John seems to believe that the fake psychic business is his ride to Richville, and with a $1,000 fee to answer just two questions about dead relatives in a month, the potential for profit is significant.

J. Clifford’s one-image review of the new Hobbit movie by Peter Jackson reminded me that this third movie in the series had come out. I had forgotten, honestly, and that’s saying a lot. I have watched every minute of the making-of footage of each of the three Lord of the Rings movies by Peter Jackson, […]
