Where are the RFID Tags in Schools Now — and What are they Doing There?

Three years ago, I wrote:

Houston area school districts have implanted RFID chips into kids’ ID tags and installed gear around schools and buses to constantly keep track of children’s locations.

Get ‘em used to it while they’re young and they won’t think twice about it when they’re grown.

Where will implanted chip RFID tracking [...]

The Denver Airport Conspiracy Finally Unmasked

The general idea is that the Denver International Airport is filled with New World Order Illuminati Masonic Satanic symbols. [...]

Call to Protest at the First Presidential Debate in Denver October 3 2012

Occupy Denver has just issued a call to protest at the first presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

The first of the three Presidential “debates” will take place in Denver, Colorado on October 3rd. We have no doubt that this charade will produce plenty of false promises, lies, empty platitudes and misleading statements. [...]

In Solidarity with Occupy Denver, Connecticut Students Revoke John Hickenlooper’s Diploma

Nobody with a fun name like Hickenlooper should be such a Fascistloser. But, alas, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado is going far over the top, not content simply to pepper spray and shoot projectiles at political demonstrators but going so far as to issue summons against sympathetic citizens who were delivering supplies to the [...]

Selection Bias: In Video from 7 Cities, Americans Elect Underrepresents Women and Black People

Political campaigns in the modern era commonly use demographic targeting to conserve resources, appealing to certain portions of the population and largely writing off others:

J. Brian O’Day explains:

The point of targeting is to determine which subsets of the voting population are most likely to be responsive to your candidate and focusing your campaign [...]

Maze of Websites Brings Unity12 Operation Back to GOP Consultant Jim Jonas

Back in 2006, the Unity08 corporation formed to select its own candidates for President and Vice President of the United States. Unity08′s pitch: why not have a bipartisan team of one Republican and one Democrat working together in the White House? Given that the office of the President is imbued with power while the office [...]

Rally in Denver for the Separation of Church and State, 9/28/08

As the recently revealed Muthee-Palin sermon reveals, there are people out there trying to turn our secular democracy into a Christian theocracy — people whose ties may lead them to the White House. It’s not just the Republican Party to which I refer; last month in Denver, the Democratic Party excluded non-religious Americans from its [...]

When Democrats Agree to Inject Religion in Politics, Religions Fight Over Which One

The backlash was inevitable.

Last week, the Democratic Party filled its quadrennial convention with references to gods, appeals to gods and even the claim that gods are working for the Democrats. Well, that’s not entirely accurate; actually, all of the many references to gods during the Democratic National Convention were references to one, single, provincial [...]

Democratic Party To Officially Oppose Nonreligious Americans

According to the Constitution of the United States of America, the government is supposed to be uninvolved in matters of religion, and leave belief up to individual personal conscience. However, as of 2008, the Democratic Party will no longer support that position. [...]

Pulled Back Down To Being Atheist

I do not want to get over being disrespected and treated as a second-class citizen by the increasingly faith-based Democratic Party. I want the Democratic Party to get over with their discrimination and insults against nonreligious Americans. When the Democrats do that, I won’t have anything to get over, and I’ll be able to get about my business without having to make a fuss. [...]

The Vague Power of Faith In Democratic Politics

The Democratic Party is now making the same deal with tax exempt religious groups that it made a long time ago with corporate lobbyists: Come and show us what you can do to help get our candidates elected, and we’ll make sure that legislation and executive policies are changed to bring you a lot more money and power as well.
