The NAACP is concerned and so am I

In what alternate universe do for profit charter schools make sense?

The only answer I got was, NONE!

One concern that I have is from a statement that (boy, this is hard to say) Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos made to the effect that vouchers to charter schools is a good way to put “god” back into education. She doesn’t respect our secular laws as to the separation of church and state and IMHO she is unfit to “serve” in that capacity.

I’ll leave the explaining to this article written for Education Votes. Be informed, not just opinionated. Click on the article….

On the Wings of the Night

Look what they’re doing (somewhat) covertly hoping you won’t notice.

While the main distraction was being perpetuated, see what your new (cough) president and his fascist, racist, bigoted cronies were up to……

When they thought that no one would notice……. too much, this is a list (that’s probably not 100% complete) of things introduced in the House of Representatives:

  1. HR 861- Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency
  2. HR 610- Vouchers for Public Education
  3. HR 899- Terminate the Department of Education
  4. HJR 69- Repeal rule Protecting Wildlife
  5. HR 370- Repeal the Affordable Care Act
  6. HR 354- De-fund Planned Parenthood
  7. HR 785- National Right to Work law (this one would effectively end all unions)
  8. HR 83-   Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities
  9. HR 147- Criminalizing Abortion (Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act)
  10. HR 808- Sanctions against Iran

I have never seen, or ever thought I’d see, such dysfunction and deceit in the elected officials in this country.


I guess I should have known when Sarah Palin emerged and took ignorance to new lofty heights in politics.


Then I became aware of the likes of dumb shit Michele Bachmann and Joni Ernst and realized that we had entered some form of alternate intelligence…… I mean when I was younger and didn’t pay as much attention to politics as I do now, I at least knew that even if someone was on the other side of an issue, that there was a bit of decorum politely extended and rational, civilized discussions would take place. Oh well…


Now I’m nearly ready to jump ship and swim until I die bcause the grip these semi-literate hate mongers have on the true illiterate hate mongers is, in my estimation beyond the point of no return.


Having said that…….I’ll be back!!!

Religion Has No Place in Education

Here’s some good news on the separation of church and state front.
We must remain vilgiant as these delusional types are continually trying to intertwine their (fake, man made) religion into our secular government.

As an atheist, I believe that we need to see more of this kind of progress. Then someday possibly a widespread awakening that all religion is fake and has no place in our governments worldwide will be the order of the day.

Theologies NEVER WORK!!! They harbor ancient myths as law and oppress and violate the rights of billions everyday. We must change if we are to save this planet and have a population free from discrimination and hate.

The World Must Lose It’s Delusion and Face the Truth

I have never believed in God…… I was agnostic about it for years and ambiguous to it at best.

Enter the age of retirement and the vast amount of information available on the internet. Things that were previously difficult to investigate, now become commonplace and there is nearly an infinity of information available. You just have to sort out the information that can be proven as true from the (again a vast amount) information that can be dismissed as conjecture, opinion or just plain made up lies that attempt to pass as truth.

Ahh, yes, TRUTH.

While all through my so-called “work life” I had never the time to, or the curiosity for exploring just what it is that makes so many people accept their particular brand of religion (there are 41,000 denominations of Christianity alone, without ever getting into Judaism or Islam) as the ONLY true religion, and the rejection of all the others as wrong.

Well I cannot put all what I have learned about religion, the Bible, Jesus and God into words as the more I write, the less clear I can become sometimes. So as an alternative I’ll be posting a random series with links to videos and articles made by the people who have tirelessly pursued the subject.

Today I’ll just put out one link to one video that I believe will fulfill my part of educating as many as possible, and doing my best as an online epistemologist, or better put, for the purpose of providing tools to use reason and research to help relieve people of their faith and help them accept reason and facts rather than myths and fairy tales.

The future of this planet, I believe hinges on getting as many people to examine their delusion of God and Muhammad, as these are the two main offshoots of these ancient manuscripts and the source of the delusion of billions of people.

The way to change the world is to change people’s minds. As more and more people openly discuss the fact that “God” and “Allah” are completely imaginary, the world becomes a better place.

Here goes… Watch this short video:

Remember we need not abandon religion completely, but knowing what’s rational and what can be dismissed as superstition is important for us to ever find a path to truth and [real] peace on earth
