International Blasphemy Day

Happy Internation Blasphemy Day, everyone. I bring you this poem from Cuttlefish. Check out his blog as well, it's a good one. The links at the end of this post.

The first amendment means, to me,
The right to play at blasphemy;
The right to say “There is no God”
Without the threat of firing squad.
To speak, or sing, or draw, or write
And not be paralyzed with fright.
To mock Jehovah if I wish;
To point and laugh at Jesus fish;
And though the image strikes me weird,
To pluck Mohammed’s silly beard.
To say such things as I may choose
Regardless of opposing views.

About the pow’r of Holy Writ
I proudly do not give a shit.

Aren't You Lucky

Fox News is, surprise, a source of lies.

I've been saying this for years, if you get your news from Fox, you're an ignorant fool. Fox doesn't report of reality for, as Stephen Colbert said, "reality has a well-known liberal bias." They report what their audience wants them to.

What I'm trying to say is this: Fuck Fox News.

Nationalism vs. Patriotism

I'm going to go over this quick. Nationalism is the belief that the country is always right. Many religious people, who believe America is God's chosen land are nationalists. They have no reason to disagree with God's whims. If America commits torture, that's okay because God wants America too.

Patriotism, on the other hand, are, in many cases, defenders of the ideals of a country. This word has been dragged down in America by that worthless piece of shit called the Patriot Act. That's always a problem. Make an evil agenda and give it a pretty name.

"How dare you oppose the Patriot Act? That's so unamerican!"

Ignorance, you know.

I saw a picture recently that basically said that Democrats oppose spending tax dollars on killed, via useless wars, and Republicans oppose spending tax dollars on healing, via universal health care.

Anyways, peace out.
