Wow, Mr Kengor is taking all the fun out of freedom. When I finally left my fundamentalist upbringing at age 30, that was the first time I felt real freedom.
While all conservatives seem very unhappy with these "secular humanist", I must confess I have never met one nor even seen one on TV. This makes me believe that, like the American communist, they don't actually exist. Obama's foreign policy seems pretty poor and makes me think he would be a lousy poker player. However, he has one strength which is useful in this difficult times. He seems disinclined to starting wars. This is appreciated by the average person, but not the conservative.
Small tents don't win elections. Assuming an athiest organization can get on board with limited government and a balanced budget, why shouldn't they be part of the republican family? Does everybody have to agree on everything?
George W. Bush signed the light bulb legislation, not a liberal.
Apparently one can be any type of societal deviant but be considered a good considerative if one parrots the appropriate conservative talking points. Now Ted Nugent is said to have crapped in his pants for a solid week to get out of the Vietnam draft. I can't say if that is true or not, but he does have 8 children by 6 different women. Does that sound conservative to anyone? Then there is Donald Trump. The punch line to every comedian's joke. And those guys with the long beards? Can't conservatives find any heroes that aren't jokes and buffoons?

What Are They Smoking in Colorado?

The use of tobacco was so widespread in America that it was once thought to be impossible to curb it. And yet tobacco use is now in serious decline and it is widely consider to be uncool to smoke. Was this accomplished by making smoking illegal? Of course not. Making smoking illegal would have made it only more desirable? A combination of targeted taxation, a persistent ad campaign, and cultural taboos defeated the very addictive habit of smoking and made it less and less prevelant. Marijuana foes could only hope for such success against the drug they oppose. Mr Brown is a dinosaur. Everyday there are fewer and fewer people who seriously believe making marijuana illegal is a viable solution to marijuana addiction and the problem it creates for society. For those who want to see less marijuana usage, follow the example of tobacco.
I can tell you. Yesterday, on American Thinker, I heard the first lady refered to as a baboon. Yes, a baboon. Previously, on Townhall and American Thinker, I have heard our president referred to an a monkey, a gorilla, and a chimpanzee. Are there resists in the Tea Party? Yes, lots of them.
Look Seawolf, the modern conservative uses the term "marxist" as a pejorative to throw at people they disagree with. Unless someone self-identifies as a marxist, to call him one is to just hurl insults, nothing more.
Earth to conservatives: No the world is not ending. You can use the federal court system to fight the executive.
As usual, Mr Giles has scaled the heights of stupidity. Didn't most of us send our children to public school? I did. Then I sent them to good colleges and then they got high paying jobs as professionals. I don't see how they could have done much better had I sent them to the most expensive private schools in the country. Parental oversight is key no matter what school you send your kids too. Help them with their homework every night, help them with special projects, help them prepare for their SATs. If you stay involved in every part of their education, public schools will do just fine.
