  • Selective use of science ‘as bad as racism or homophobia’ (war against "bad" science)

    Research ^ | February 14, 2011 | John Dwyer and Laura Hood
    [British] Government Chief Scientific Adviser John Beddington is stepping up the war on pseudoscience with a call to his fellow government scientists to be “grossly intolerant” if science is being misused by religious or political groups. In closing remarks to an annual conference of around 300 scientific civil servants on 3 February, in London, Beddington said that selective use of science ought to be treated in the same way as racism and homophobia. “We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of racism. We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of people who [are] anti-homosexuality...We are not—and I genuinely think we...

    YORBA LINDA, Calif. (KABC) -- Hundreds protested in Orange County on Sunday night, accusing speakers at an Islamic fundraiser of being radical Muslims. "You're messing with Americans now. We're not England, we're not British, we're Americans," one protester yelled. The protesters are upset over the speakers who headlined an event at the Yorba Linda Community Center.

    Citizen Activist Grates On State Over Traffic SignalsFebuary 7, 2011 BY BRUCE SICELOFF - Staff Writer RALEIGH -- David N. Cox says he was merely exercising his right to petition the government, but a state Department of Transportation official has raised allegations that Cox committed a misdemeanor: practicing engineering without a license. Cox and his North Raleigh neighbors are lobbying city and state officials to add traffic signals at two intersections as part of a planned widening of Falls of Neuse Road. After an engineering consultant hired by the city said that the signals were not needed, Cox and the...

    Egyptian activists have circulated a 26-page plan called "How To Protest Intelligently" (via The Atlantic). Despite the polite title, the tone of this pamphlet is revolutionary. The demands of the people include "the downfall of the regime of "Hosni Mubarak and his ministers." Strategic goals include "to take over important government building." It also includes tips for fighting against riot police. Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/egypt-activist-plan-2011-1?slop=1#ixzz1DDAoFbP5

    By Stephen Eichler Thursday, February 3, 2011 The good news is emerging; cadres of invisible Patriots are empowering the Tea , working tirelessly behind the scenes to restore America. The names of the invisible Patriots carry no political weight, they do not seek glory, their acts will never be recorded in history books, but they are indispensible in the fight against the darkness which covers America today. These invisible Patriots are the true Americans guarding all we hold dear, many of them members of the Tea Party. You see, the acts of the Tea Party are etched upon our memories...

    MAY 2011 - Pro-Constitution (Anti-Communism) Month Weekly Thread #2 Concept is evolving for this activism project. It is now Pro-Constitution Month with strong anti-Communist messages. For ideas and suggestions roughed out so far please reference this threadBy May, Conservatives in Congress may already need a new fire lit under them, and this voluntary activism project has the potential to do that if it is done vigorously. Some of us who are still furious at the "shining path" we are on in search of a non-existant "workers paradise" may find this project satisfying We were warned by our Founders that...

    Not to state the obvious, but a Communist rebellion has arisen in our country which threatens our Freedom and is destroying our economy. It is time to act now, before we chance permanently losing our Constitutional Republic. " Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country."< I propose we form up a new branch of activism called the Sons of Liberty. This volunteer activism will have narrowly focused tasks: 1. To restore the good name of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, a true martyr in the fight against communism. 2. To work...

    Yesterday, we dodged a bullet with the failure of the DREAM act. (I know some of you believe it may rear its head again this session; we'll see.) Anyway, the radical amnesty element of the Democrat party is up in arms at that defeat. Yesterday, we had DADT get repealed. The repeal wouldn't be so bad, but that lowlife Lieberman is putting an amendment for the 2011 Defense Authorization Act Wednesday that will repeal U.S.C. 10 625, making sodomy in the military o.k. Aside from the whole 'these undermine America thing' (and I know they do), these two items have...
  • Tell your Senators to vote NO to the earmark laden $1.1 trillion "omnibus" spending bill

    12/16/2010 8:18:32 AM PST · by WOBBLY BOB · 26 replies · 1+ views
    Republicans need to hear from us just like the Democrats do so please contact both your Senators now. Just 4 eye-popping numbers in the Reid "omnibus" spending bill say it all: *1,924 pages long at $575.13 million spent per page *$1 billion -- for pre-funding of the un-Constitutional Obama/Pelosi/Reid health care takeover *6,488 pork-barrel earmarks identified so far Think about this. After failing to complete its budget for yet another year, this failed Senate is pushing this $1.1 trillion monstrosity of deficit spending. As Harry Reid arrogantly said, "We're not through. Congress ends January 4."

    I'm sorry for the vanity but I was just thinking.....Canonsburg Boro has a Council meeting this Monday. Any Pittsburgh-area FReepers wanna go? I am trying to get a group to go because I'd like to personally donate to the Council my copy of David Barton's "Separation of Church & State" so that these fools can get a little education. It seems that they are allowing a Satan-loving mental health patient (Megan Hartley) to dictate how this little town observes the Christmas Holiday. There have been numerous threads here on FreeRepublic about this story so I'm sure most of you have...

    DISCLAIMER: One reading this article might wrongly conclude that the Tea Party is exclusively aligned with the Republican Party – a belief that I would like to dispel immediately. I have met some very decent and principled Democrats at Tea Party events, and would like fewer things better than to see them bring the universally-applicable principles of the Tea Party to their own side of the political spectrum. The references to the Republican Party in this article only reflect my own personal experiences and affiliation. For the past many months I have been attending various Tea Party and other similar...

    We are on a roll. The great resurgence of American patriotism fueled by the Tea Party revolt made its voice heard this November 2nd. Not only did the corrupt Democrat Congress suffer a big reversal, but more importantly, Republicans won the largest majority of state houses they have had since 1928, and made a net gain of ten governorships, now holding a majority of 29 to 18....you may soon be able to express your defiance with a Gadsden Flag license plate. As reported first by Right Side News in October, the original idea was the brainchild of Virginia Tea Party...

    NOW is the time to contact your representatives to let them know what we are expecting out of this incoming Congress. Let them know we want NO compromise with the Dems, and no spending. We DO NOT want an omnibus spending bill. Make the Senate reject each item of spending, or de-funding, and make THEM defend their vote. The Dems and the White House has been talking down to the Republicans since 2006 (I know the WH just got into the game in 2008). Don't take it any more. We now have the purse strings. We now get to decide...

    Rarely has the political differences dividing our country been so stark. Certainly, the antebellum period prior to the Civil War was such a time. The Civil War itself remaining a clear reminder of what happens when political policies and actions are taken to extremes. Two very different interpretations of the 10th Amendment, protectionism of northern industry the Confederacy viewed as biased against southern agriculture, and a popular abolitionist movement in the north proved to be a volatile combination. The rest is, well, history. (Please, no flames - I know the causes of the Civil War were more complex and varied....

    Less than two years ago, Amy Kremer and Jenny Beth Martin were 30-something suburbanites in metro Atlanta, frustrated by recession, dismayed by the election of Barack Obama and waiting for the next chapter of their lives. Ms. Kremer, a former Delta Air Lines flight attendant, had quit her career to raise her daughter. The child had grown up and just moved out, and now Ms. Kremer was filling her time with two blogs—one on gardening, one on politics. "I had this empty space in my life," Ms. Kremer recalls. Ms. Martin, a software manager by training and part-time blogger, was...

    WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Wednesday temporarily stalled the landmark court decision allowing openly gay recruits to be accepted into the military. In response to an emergency request from the government, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco issued a one-page order allowing the Pentagon to continue enforcing the "don't ask, don't tell" law, which bars openly gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. The decision returns the law to the status quo before a U.S. District Court judge in California prohibited its enforcement. It will be in effect while the court...
