In judging a two-person singing contest, never award the prize to the second soprano having heard only the first.

Actually Theo, I didn't pick up on it as much as I stumbled upon it at one of my favourite legal blogs that specialises in the Constitution of the United States, the principles behind the Separation of Church and State and the issues that arise, as well as correcting erroneous claims of what the Founders had to say.
Bush Edits Out Jefferson's Religious Views
I wanted to open the thread with a question hoping to stimulate a bit of intellectual curiosity.When those who believe in any of the available gods understand why they deny all other gods, they should come to understand why atheists lack a belief in theirs.
July 5th, 2008, 03:02 PM #4Jefferson made many such statements, of course. Clearly they are best edited out by those who advocate nothing if not monkish ignorance and superstition.You can't fix stupidity.

I find that George W Bush , by far, the most irresponsible and reprehensible president (?) in our Country's history and has the Balls utter Jefferson's name and misquote the man to boot. As bad as Sadamn was, I beleive Bush has ruined more lives and institutions thru ignorance and arrogance by his twisted but purposeful applications and collusions. His abuse of the power of the presidency is unprecedented in the annals of humanity.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iE9TN...eature=related

Counting bodies like sheep...
And the sheep follow men who use a speech stating rights apply to all men in order to rally for murder by the millions...and in the same breath can gather adherence to stating not everyone (gitmo, gays, etc) deserves the rights of man to keep the mindless in line with other methods of control (cough, religion, ignorance, irrationality).
But maybe there's nothing wrong with letting lemmings jump from the cliff if they know no better. The hard part is finding a safe spot to watch from when the lemmings are equipped with nuclear weapons and ammunition containing depleted radioactives.
