Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter’s Tirades Against Atheism

leave a comment »

Bill O’Reilly: “The atheists are just stupid for making people angry”.

Is O’Reilly being stupid ever time he makes people angry? Then that would be all the time.

Ann Coulter: “This country was founded explicity on a belief in god.”

Really? Is that in the U.S. Constitution? Where exactly is that?

Ann Coulter: “It doesn’t even fit within the public forum definition of what speech must be tolerated. So, it is the government officials being idiots to even allow these atheist signs”.

Where are you getting this Ms. Coulter? Why wouldn’t this type of speech be tolerated? Because it’s not Christian?

Bill and Ann are intolerant and hateful. Then they try the switch-and-bait to put their characteristics on their opponents.

RedState Confused on Troop Increases

The Cheney doctrine of keeping the number of troops small so that they could be deployed quickly didn’t work in Iraq or Afghanistan. It took Cheney/Bush four years to admit the fact in Iraq to begin increasing the number of troops and they never did in Afghanistan. Obama is doing what should have been done in 2002.

The Cheney doctrine was a failure. The Republicans pushed out the only person with military intelligence in their administration – Colin Powell whose intelligent doctrine, known as the Powell Doctrine, was to use overwhelming force to get the job done.

RedState is wrong again. But I don’t think I’ve found one place where they are “right”.

Net Neutrality and RedState

leave a comment »

The RedState right-wing blog doesn’t hardly get anything right. The subject of net neutrality is not an exception. Looks like they would do some basic research before spouting non-sense. But if they did that, every post on their site would have to be changed.
