I am glad I got my education before they started to dismantle it all.

For most of America,,,,,


Although he has some good points, there are times he is a bit condescending mixed with some good jokes.

But the local schools here tried to sneak indoctrination in the elementary school with a program called "Bible Snacks" that my friend kept her son away from.

Yeah Len he can be a bit condescending at times, I suspect it is because he has to put up with so much crap from religio-nutters.

He also makes sense in what he says but.

He did a lot of appearances with the Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty.

But yeah, he has a point, they have dumbed down education and are replacing it with religio-doctrination

It was a natural progression Len. Slick Willy Clinton took the Dems out to the centre right back in the 90's, the place where traditional Reps were.That moved the Reps out to the fringe right where they were taken over by the religio-nutters. 

The rest as they say, is history.

I want to ask you guys a question. 
Do you think politics is a religion?

Star, politics was closely tied with religion. That was why we were supposed to separation of church and state in America. Too many Idjits want to blur those lines here. they will criticize theocracies of other religions, but fail to realize that they are running along the same path.

Yes Len, Religion has destroyed us, I think most have mixed God with religion. To me the earth is God, I cannot see what that has to do with religion. Politics is in reality a belief. It is almost the same as lots of people think the world can function without some form of socialism. When you break it down communism 
is another form of capitalism. Man some crazy stuff.
You have to wonder what has happened to rational thinking, or critical thinking. Everyone want to go to heaven, but no one want to die.

Politics and religion combined is a form of ultimate control.

You make some good points Star. Socialism cannot function without a backing of Capitalism. Streets are an example of social ownership. The cost of maintaining the streets is shared by all in the community otherwise they would tolled.

Think of driving to work each day and each time you cross an intersection the toll charge rolls up $5.00 at each one. 10 intersections equals $50.00 and that is just one way. You would have to pay the same going home at night.

Think of having to pay lots for the water you use each day lead-laden and all. Think of the cost of taking the sewage away as well. All of those are socialist. The Police, the Fire Service and so on.

Karl Marx wrote that religion was he opiate of the masses, a phrase that Govts. often refer to, taken out of context. What Marx was referring to was that the employers were treating their workers abysmally and telling them that the depredation they were suffering was okay as they would get their reward in heaven after they die. The Republicans still follow that doctrine. That is why they don't give a whatsit for suffering people today.

Yep, you can have a society like we used to, some capitalism, but socialistic programs that do good for the people. We take many socialistic programs for granted as we bitch about "socialism". It always amuses me listening to "conservatives" that do that as I point out such things as Tim pointed at.
