Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

LIFE LESSONS
As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities.
Voltaire



Well, let’s see what many people believe?

WMD’s were found in Iraq.

Iraq was supporting Al Qaeda and involved in the World Trade Center attacks.

The war in Iraq is keeping us safe from terror attacks at home.

The people of Iraq are free and prospering, except for a few troublemaking insurgents who are dieing out.

The terrorists hate us for our freedom.

On other subjects:

Many people believe:

Global warming is a quant theory and needs more study.

Evolution is a quant theory and is not a proven fact of life.

Intelligent design is a rational explanation of how we got here.

The current changes to the environmental protection laws are improvements.

Doubling of the cost of a gallon of gasoline is the result of normal supply and demand.

Hurricane Katrina’s devastation was an act of God that couldn’t have been prepared for.

Switcharoo:

Many people believe:

People sneaking into the U.S. is a good thing.

The illegal aliens only take the jobs that Americans won’t do.

NAFTA and other trade agreements reached in the last 20 years have been good for the country.

China and Russia are our friends.

The Supreme Court decision that corporations have most of the same rights as a person under the 14th amendment was a good thing.


Flip-a-roony

Many people believe:

Tax cuts are good even during budget shortfalls.

Criticizing the President or the current administration is treason and shows a hatred of our troops in harms way.

Putting our troops in harms way in Iraq was not a blatant act of revenge and grab at control of a major oil source.

They are better off than they were yesterday.

President Bush spending less time on the ranch fishing and more time in Washington is a good thing.

Many people believe all or most of these things, but not as many as yesterday and more than tomorrow.

You should always read the fine print at the bottom.

.7% of all statistics are made up right on the spot

Then again I could be full of shit.

    People and their beliefs wear me out. But about the first set, I don't think many people believe those things anymore, I think it's just the government that keeps saying them to us.
