Another Democrat. Another charity. Another "oversight."

Compare and contrast.

Nancy Pelosi:
Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly said Friday the speaker will amend her reports. He said it "was an oversight" that she had not listed her position dating back to 1992.

Hillary Clinton:
"The details of the Clintons' charitable family foundation and Senator Clinton's role in it have always been publicly available, but, in an oversight that leaders of both parties have made, it was inadvertently omitted from her Senate filing, which has been corrected," Hillary Clinton's press secretary, Philippe Reines, said yesterday.

I like how Clinton's spokesperson tries to bring the Republicans into the picture. "An oversight that leaders of both parties have made." As if that makes the situation not as bad as it really is.

Why I won't join Mensa

Because people like this represent the organization.

My IQ is in the low 150s. I could easily join Mensa, but I refuse to as long as so many of their representatives continue to be blatantly anti-Christian. This isn't the first time I've seen this sort of thing. I don't know why, but a lot of these allegedly intellectual people think that believing in God is either a cause or symptom of stupidity. Of course, history has shown this to be untrue. Many of the world's greatest thinkers have been Christians.

Besides, I don't need to belong to some organization whose primary purposes are to be a bragging point and some made-up indicator that supposedly makes your point of view more valid than another person's.

UPDATE: Well, I sent off an email to the author of the article explaining to her why her example of intellectual dishonesty and bigotry against Christians is exactly the reason why I won't join Mensa. I was utterly floored by her response:

"Please feel free to be set free by the truth by telling me the truth about where you obtained my email address."

You'd think a member of Mensa could've figured that out. It was no difficult feat. Apparently [allegedly] having a high IQ doesn't always mean someone is real sharp. I've been chuckling to myself and blinking in disbelief ever since I got her response.

Came here from a Google search for "'ted harvey' global warming." I don't think they found what they were looking for, though. My post referencing someone named Ted Harvey is about abortion survivor Gianna Jessen. Well, I hope they learned something anyway.

Do you remember?

Thanks to Lawhawk and Michelle for reminding us.

The Jihadists tried to topple the towers that day. They failed. We forgot. And then they succeeded on September 11, 2001.

Remember, so that they won't succeed ever again.

The difference between Minnesota and California

In California, when the temperature drops to 40 degrees, they bundle up to keep warm.

In Minnesota, when the temperature climbs to 40 degrees, we walk around outside with t-shirts on.

Scotland’s National Health Service says "mom," "dad," "marriage" are homophobic terms

Can't wait for this to come to America (and you know it will):

Use of ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad’ Too “Homophobic”, Scottish Nurses Told
EDINBURGH, Scotland, February 16, 2007 ( - Nurses and other health care professionals should avoid using the terms ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ to refer to family relationships since the terms could be offensive to homosexual couples with children, a new directive published by Scotland’s National Health Service recommends.

Issued in conjunction with the country’s leading homosexual activist organization Stonewall Scotland, the publication is entitled Fair For All - The Wider Challenge: Good LGBT Practice in the NHS. Americans for Truth reported Feb.11 on the publication’s release.

The booklet calls for a “zero-tolerance policy to discriminatory language” among Scotland’s health care system. Included in discriminatory language is the use of terms that assume a traditional family structure of mother, father and children, according to the NHS directive.

“LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered] people can and do have children, sexual orientation or gender identity has nothing to do with good parenting or good child care,” the booklet states.

“Individual circumstances lead to varied family structures and parenting arrangements. It is important to be aware of this. When talking to children, consider using ‘parents‘, ‘carers’ or ‘guardians’ rather than ‘mother’ or ‘father‘.

Along the same lines, the directive points out, use of the terms ‘husband’, ‘wife’ and ‘marriage’ is not acceptable since such terms exclude lesbian, gay and bisexual people. Instead, health care workers should use the terms ‘partners’ and ‘next of kin’. Since ‘next of kin’ is often understood to mean nearest blood relative, however, the booklet recommends that it may be preferable to use ‘partner, close friend or close relative’ to avoid confusion.

“This allows the patient to identify and choose who is important to them.”

Other recommendations include ensuring the health care environment is visually reassuring to LGBT people, with posters and magazines on LGBT issues on display.

“Posters with positive images of same-sex couples, alongside similar material depicting opposite-sex couples, should be displayed in all areas e.g. waiting areas, hospital wards.”

In order to better ensure the comfort and security of LGBT people in the health care environment, the NHS calls for sexual identity “monitoring forms” to be included in all registration procedures for both staff and patients. The booklet recommends five reply options to the question of sexual orientation, including ‘Lesbian‘, ‘Gay‘, ‘Bisexual‘, ‘Heterosexual‘, and ‘Other‘. Sections recording gender should be changed to have three reply options, ‘Male‘, ‘Female‘, or ‘Other, “where people can define their own gender.”

Among guidelines for implementing pro-LGBT policies in the health care system, the directive requires that management or team leader job descriptions include a mandatory commitment to combating any “discriminatory” language or attitudes among staff.

The booklet was funded by taxpayers through the NHS Education for Scotland, as part of the Equality and Diversity program.

No, you're not Spartacus. You're lame.

They've completely lost it.

So, we "godbags" are the Romans and they are the brave gladiator-slaves? Huh?

What is it with liberals and cigars?

First Bill Clinton had his cigar follies, now Rep. Ellison:
Rep. Tom Tancredo supported freshman Rep. Keith Ellison's controversial swearing-in on the Quran, but when the Colorado Republican wanted to relax in his office with a cigar, the Muslim Democrat's office called in the cops.

"It's very bizarre," Tancredo told The Hill newspaper. "Seemed to me not a good way to say hello."

The lawmakers have neighboring offices on the first floor of the Longworth House Office Building, the paper noted. Last Wednesday, about 6 p.m., Tancredo lit up as he was preparing for a trip to Mississippi. Shortly thereafter, an apologetic police officer walked into his office to inform him of the report.

Of course, all is explained by the very book that Ellison took his oath of office on:

What Does Islam Say About Smoking?

Christian-bashing bloggers fired... er... quit. PZ fumes.

This and this are what happens when you insult us "godbags" (and then try to retroactively call the insults satirical as if somehow that gets you off the hook). Live and learn, ladies. Hate gets you nowhere.

Meanwhile, PZ fumes. I guess Edwards lost his vote...

...for now...

PZ marvels at how many atheists are on Daily Kos

Proof that college professors often aren't real sharp:
Take a look at this promising poll at Daily Kos. This informal and unscientific survey of the netroots seems to be showing that a third of the readers are utterly godless, and that if you toss in the agnostics, freethinkers have got a clear majority. I anxiously await the hysterics from the wingnuts, who will be horrified at all the heretics and apostates and damned infidels lurking on the Left, with their forked tails twitching and their horns filed to sharp, pointy tips.

This is like walking into a church and marveling at how many Christians are there. Man.

Clue to the clueless (i.e. PZ and his ilk): We "wingnuts" aren't the least bit surprised that the left is populated by a large number of atheists, agnostics and others of a similar bent. We have been well aware of it for decades, in fact, and no, we're not "horrified" or even the least bit worried about that.
