John Roberts, What is a Neocon?, Poll on Creation Science, E.L. Doctorow

3:41 PM

The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo Just a few articles and petitions (I hope they listen to them):

John Roberts

Ask John Roberts to release various documents about his work under Bush I, so that the Senators can make an informed decision about if they think he's liberal or conservative. Actually, at this point, I think that everyone should realize that he's conservative. Based on that, and based on the fact that conservatives are, by and large,

  • against Roe v. Wade
  • pro-death penalty
  • pro-neocon agenda (world leadership by force if necessary)
  • pro-Iraq War
  • anti-gay rights
  • occasionally pro-"creation science"
  • sometimes anti-global warming research

which are all obviously immoral or ignorant stances, anyone who is liberal should vote against him.

What is a Neocon?

Regarding the Neocon agenda: The Neocon website is It says, "We need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles." It also says, "We aim to make the case and rally support for American global leadership.... The history of this century should have taught us to embrace the cause of American leadership." That is a Neocon. It is signed by Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, Steve Forbes, Dan Quayle, Donald Rumsfeld, and Paul Wolfowitz.

How Many People Believe in Creation Science?

The Pew Research Center came out with a poll on Creation Science and religion. It mentions, among other things that 42% of Americans think that life on Earth has existed in its present form since the beginning of time. 48% believe that it evolved over time. Wow. Oh yeah. 64% of Americans say they are open to the idea of teaching creationism along with evolution in the public schools, and 38% favor replacing evolution with creationism in public school curricula. Hello? 2005? The 1850s called; it wants its ideals back.

Shirking Our Responsibilities

Nice article in the New York Times about Katrina and "black folks" by Frank Rich. If it expires you can likely search out the first few words of the article to see if anyone else has posted it.

The Unfeeling President Bush

Essay by E.L. Doctorow on the unfeeling president.

Concluding Thought

Remember when we all stood as one against corrupt government officials and they worked for us, instead of supporting the corruption in your party because it's your party? Let's get back to that. Truth over parties.
