Bitch, Bitch, Bitch...

Not that it really matters, but-

-In Texas you can get arrested for saying "Fuck" at Wal*fart. Wow- if you said "God Damn!" would they just shoot you?

-FauxNews is wetting its pants because the Senate may actually try to pass Health Care reform on the basis of a majority vote, instead of going for a filibuster-proof 60 votes. Aside from sending them back to the dictionary to see what the definition of "Democracy" is, one might point out to the fine folks at Faux that the Republicans had eight years to provide decent health care to Americans, and their only solution to the problem is, and always will be, "we're sorry you're sick, and the only way to make you better is to cut taxes".

-Flying anywhere in the near future? The FAA not only won't write rules that say airlines and airports must report bird strikes on aircraft, they now want to keep the information they have on the subject secret from the public. So ok, fine, the FAA is going to once again become the airline industry's trade association -can we get the government to start a new agency that actually oversees the safety of the flying public?

-Alan Keyes, whose grasp of reality has always been pretty tenuous, appears to have completely gone over the edge into WackoLand-

-R.I.P. Dan seals.

So, What's Up With That???

I know, long time, no blog, I'll be back soon!

But today one burning question- why does the Constitutional guarantee of separation of church and state only work one way? The churches get to avoid interference from the state (no taxes, not subject to many laws, employment laws, for instance), but the state isn't free from political interference from churches?

Annoyed minds want to know!
