It’s alive!!!!! And, it’s wallboard.
Hey Mitt,you’re too late. Been to P-Town lately? I’m thinking not. It’s that town with the big phallic symbol you go by on your way out to sea in your yacht.

“The Matter with Us”
Once we have rejected the spiritual, we are left with the material. That should simplify our lives, right? Not necessarily. As John Rawles book, The Matter with Us: A Materialistic Account of the Human Predicament, notes on its title page:
The bridge of spaceship Earth is deserted; nobody is in charge. Down below, the passengers are fighting amongst themselves, damaging the craft, looting the stores, and squandering the reserves. As a fellow passenger it gives me no pleasure to report what I see. What’s the matter with us that we should behave like this? Surely, we would all prefer that many future generations should continue to enjoy the cruise of a lifetime in safety, comfort and good health; but that seems unlikely. And it was such a beautiful ship.
Of course, the situation isn’t all doom and gloom either. We got ourselves here, and at least for now, we have some choices about where we go next. Join us on Sunday as we talk to John Rawles about how we got where we are and what we can do to make sure the cruise goes on.
Actually, there may not be. Rights are, in part, what we decide as a society and it is not clear that the US has decided that health care is a right. Most civilized countries have, of course. Here’s what Santorum has to say about it: Continue reading There is no right to health care (Santorum)
So, who would say something as stupid as that? Actually a Professor of History. Who happens to be running for president:
That’s Gingrich speaking at CPAC and brought to us by Right Wing Watch.
You know who I’m talking about.
This is Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association. He is correct: Decades ago, homosexuality was considered abhorrent behavior and a violation of the laws of nature but people don’t think that as much any more. But he seems to have problem with that: Continue reading Sexually Abnormal Daytime TV Host Is Ruining America
Click here to put your name on the line to support Dems in the Senate in their efforts to battle the right wing fundie yahoos:
Time and again, our opponents have come after women — women’s rights, women’s health, women’s economic security.
They tried to defund Planned Parenthood through the budget process. They tried to restrict women’s health care through Medicare and Medicaid. This time, they tried to get Komen to cut off support for Planned Parenthood.
Enough is enough. We may have won this latest round, but our opponents aren’t going away. They’re launching endless attacks against women every single day, and we need to rise to the challenge.
We’ve got to build a grassroots force that’s ready to take them on whenever and wherever they attack women’s rights and women’s health.
And we’ll do it by coming together. Join us.
One million strong for women — add your name, your voice, and your support now.

From Kristin Montalbano:
Mark Twain once said, the Mississippi River is a “wonderful book with a new story to tell every day.” Well, Nat Geo WILD spent an entire year exploring the length of North America’s longest and greatest waterway in Wild Mississippi and we can tell you the man was NOT exaggerating. We gave a few of our favorite science, animal and nature bloggers the chance to check out the miniseries before it airs this Sunday – see what they had to say below:
According to Rick Santorum, it is.

I think Rick Santorum is trying to destroy America.
A team of researchers based in Namibia, South Africa, Australia and the United Kingdom now report fossils from a Namibian deposit that seem to be animals and apparently date to about 760 million years ago. This extends the known time span of animals on the planet by about 17 percent….
