Do You Believe In Magic?

magic busHere's my basic problem with organized religion.

Let's say I'm sitting on a bench waiting for a bus, and some guy happens to sit down next to me. To pass the time we might talk about sports, news, weather, or politics. We can relate.

Now let's suppose another guy sits down next to me and wonders out loud if I worship the same giant flying carrot cake that he does. And is insulted if I don't.

Do you know how many religions there are in this world? Do you know how many variants of Christianity alone there are? Do you know how many fist-fights you can get into on any given day on a bus? Why the (your chosen venue of spiritual punishment goes here) should I be expected to be versed on world theology just to keep peace while in transit? And (your imaginary friend's name goes here) help me if I happen to believe in the celestial divinity of a differing form of airborne pastry.

So please understand that I don't hate your particular brand of spiritual fantasy. I simply have more important things to think about. Like keeping an eye on those who fervently attempt to incorporate their chosen myths into the laws of this land.

Enjoy your Rapture, everyone! (What? You don't know what that is? Good for you!)



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #100 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(100) 10-21-2011: The Washington Post is firmly in the Conservative pocket but even they came right out and called the Republican jobs bill "ludicrous" today. Oh, snap!

NOTE: As a result of an unexpected wave of enthusiasm the Republican Job Creation update now has its own web site. It will remain on the RP but a web site of its own will raise its visibility on the 'net as we progress towards the critical 2012 elections. And I thank you for your support.

On the 7th day God Rested.

On the 8th day he created dinosaurs....which was a mistake.

Though God thought it was prety funny.

On the 9th day the God Police came and killed all the dinosaurs.

Then buried the evidence.

On the 10th day the God Judge issued a restraining order.

Now God spends all of his time sitting in the clouds
