From Wonkette

This man needs a jobNobody was all that surprised when the White House’s petition site got turned into a vehicle for silliness, like the petition calling on the U.S. Government to build its very own Death Star, or to deport Piers Morgan for not loving guns the way a real American should. And then there’s the stupid ones, like the suggestion that we name sportsball goalkeeper Tim Howard as “secretary of DEFENSE,” haw-haw. But we’re pretty sure that Wonkers can all get behind this excellent suggestion: Appoint George W. Bush the next ambassador to Iraq. READ MORE »

I've just read Suzannas link about the Nigerian man who has been incarcerated in a mental hospital by he's family for saying he is an Atheist, its bad enough that psychiatrists have gone along with this sham but now some people who were calling for he's release are now saying he should be examined by independent doctors. in my opinion he should be released without any preconditions. if this happened in the UK or the US i would sue the bejebus out of them

Rich Doctors Like Republicans; Sorta Rich Doctors Like Democrats

| Wed Jun. 4, 2014 10:22 AM EDT

We jabber a lot these days about how the real action in income inequality lies in the 1 percent. That is, the big increases haven't really been between the earnings of, say, teachers and computer programmers, but between computer programmers and Wall Street traders. And rising inequality is even more apparent within the 1 percent: The super rich in the top 0.1 percent are pulling away from the merely rich in the top 1 percent at an astonishing rate.

Today, Sarah Kliff points us to a kinda sorta related chart that's pretty eye-opening. As high earners, you'd think that doctors would be more likely to contribute money to Republicans than Democrats. But it turns out that isn't true. A new analysis in JAMA Internal Medicine shows that merely well-off doctors—your allergists, your pediatricians, your pulmonologists—favor Democrats. It's only when you get into the territory of medical royalty—your surgeons, your urologists, your radiologists—that political contributions start to heavily favor Republicans. Even within one of the best paid professions in the country, there's a class divide, with the haves favoring Republicans and the have-nots favoring Democrats. That's fairly remarkable.

fun for all ages

Do you possess a small child? Do you wish your small child would color things to develop hand-eye coordination and patience or whatever it is that kids are supposed to learn from coloring? So maybe you’ll buy the little tot that brain coloring book or a Barbie book or something.

Unless you’re a weird demagogue of a parent, in which case you’ll buy little Johnnie or Joanie the Tea Party Coloring Book, because it is never too young to start indoctrinating. And if Wayne Bell, the publisher of these childhood classics, has his way, you’ll soon have your schools ramming this down kids throats as well.

Oh Lord

by digby

This always puts things in perspective for me:

Americans would more likely support a philandering presidential candidate than an atheist one -- by an 18 percent margin -- according to a Pew Research Center poll published Monday.

While 35 percent of respondents said they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who had an extramarital affair, 53 percent of Americans indicated that not believing in God -- the trait viewed most negatively of the 16 tested -- would make them unsupportive of a candidate.

In accordance with a widely cited study by the University of Minnesota, which found atheists to be the most disliked and distrusted minority group in the nation, only 5 percent of respondents said they would be more likely to vote for a secular candidate.

The Pew survey, which questioned 1,501 adults nationwide from April 23 to 27, also found a significant partisan divide on the issue.

While 70 percent of Republicans and 42 percent of Democrats expressed opposition to an atheist candidate, 49 percent of Democrats viewed a potential candidate’s atheism as irrelevant.

It's a good thing America's greatest writer  Mark Twain never ran for office.

This is because of the budget that the Loonie Tune Abbot government hand down that affects all the people that can least afford to carry the load that the buget forces on them so the Right wing Loonies can give it to their wealthy bosses!
