Protection from the truth? How noble.

Tuesday, March 30th, 2004

Apparently the first rule of running a public school is to protect the educational environment from the truth.
An eighth grader in Florida is suing her school for the right to hand out pro-life material on National Remembrance Day, April 16. Nonprofit organization Freedom to Learn sponsors National Remembrance Day to memorializes the victims of […]

Libertarian or not to betarian?

Tuesday, March 30th, 2004

I first noticed my libertarian leanings during the debates for most recent state gubernatorial election. There was a guy in, if I remember correctly, a cowboy hat who looked like he could, in fact, be leading his own cult somewhere along the whistle stop route of the Alaska Railroad - that and he was […]

The most dangerous place in America…

Sunday, March 28th, 2004

Mrs. BDK made some good sense in her post. I found some stats about legalized child murder in the U.S. There are over 1 million murders in the womb each year. At around $300-$400 for each execution, it is a $300,000,000.00-$400,000,000.00 per year industry.
It seems that there is a downward trend. […]

What were they thinking?

A law was passed in Zanzibar that would allow for people convicted of having gay sex to be imprisoned for life. If gay sex is something the Zanzibari government wants to discourage, putting all the actively gay people they can find in prison together until death do they part is probably not the way […]

Racism and Evolution

Friday, March 26th, 2004

In his effort to eradicate the Jews and other people groups, Hitler kept by his side Darwin’s classic, the Origin of Species. Why would a maniacal fascist keep a science book around? It becomes more obvious when you read what nearly all copies read today do not bear - the full title: On […]

Giant B-flick sized Oysters, please waiter!

Thursday, March 25th, 2004

Giant fossilized oysters were discovered at the top of a mountain in the Andes a few years ago. The article I read is a few years old, but still relevant. There are two non-conspiracy theory possibilities that explain this:
1. The mountains rose up from the sea due to some serious plate action […]

Palestinian cowards

Wednesday, March 24th, 2004

Palestinian militants gave a 14 (16 by some reports) year old developmentally disabled boy $23 to blow himself up at a checkpoint. The reward? 72 virgins - and the $23, of course. I would like to hold this incident up as an example of horrific child sacrifice - one that seems foreign […]

My, my, my

Tolerance. It is a word misunderstood, misused and selectively practiced by most of society, especially those who so strongly advocate it.
To tolerate means to endure something or someone you find objectionable or offensive. It doesn’t mean to accept, embrace or agree with.
I am openly intolerant about certain things. I have come out […]

Hello world!

Monday, March 22nd, 2004

Hello world! I’m Elle and I am intolerant of many things. I’m so intolerant that I decided to build myself a cyber soapbox from which I will tell the world (or the two people who accidentally stumble in here) about it!
