Martin Luther, Adolf Hitler, Bob Vander Plaats and Iowa

Dropout factories, Blacks, and Latinos

More students are dropping out of high school every day, at an alarming rate. As of 2007 it was one student every 26 seconds. The cause: bad schools, poorly trained teachers, inadequate librarys, and politicians who want to "save money" at the expense of an educated populace, with the Tea Party and GOP taking aim at further dumbing down learning and the advancement of civilizationRead More

3/4ths of USA Senate GOP Doesn’t Believe in Science

While the teaching of Darwin’s theory of evolution still raises the blood pressure of USA Tea Bag Party Republicans/GOP, climate warming is now the monster of the moment. “Science is bunk” most Tea Baggers brag; and 74% of the GOP in the US Senate concur (http://blog.thenewstribune.com/letters/2011/04/11/gop-is-against-using-science-to-solve-problems/ and http://www.alternet.org/story/150340/ and http://blogs.alternet.org/speakeasy/2010/10/10/how-did-an-entire-political-party-decide-to-reject-climate-change-science/ on the economics of climate change and geopolitics, see: http://www.nationaljournal.com/columns/political-connections/for-energy-the-price-is-not-right-20110317?mrefid=site_search)...

Ignorance, GOP, Bible and Global Warming

Ignorance in the USA is not “creeping along” but running backwards surpassing all scientific truths and realities in quest of the alma mater narcotic nipple of complacency and wishful thinking—and it is not just in the USA, it is a worldwide contagion. Ignorance breeds hatred and violence as seen in the twin evils of the Florida evangelical church that burned a Koran, to the Afghani zealots who murdered in cold blood UN peace keepers.  As Stephen Pizzo wrote (03/24/2011): “For the nation that has, for a couple of centuries, been not only a beacon of freedom, but also a beacon of knowledge and science, Creeping Ignorance at the heart of our government threatens to turn us into a nation only Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter, et al[.], could love: one big festival of stupidity...

Among the states leading in hatred and calling for murder in the name of Christ is the state of Iowa, but throughout the USA there have been numerous evangelicals traveling to Uganda to encourage the enactment of state assassinations of gays and lesbians, while in Nigeria they argue for the killing of adulterers. What is unique is that most of these hate-filed groups are members of a pseudo-Christian group known as The Family.Read More
