Christians: "A Wholly Owned Subsidiary of the GOP"

Please stop being such suckers, my fellow Southerners. For fuck-sakes just stop it! Remove head from ass... Those Southerners whose heads ARE out of their asses, SPEAK UP! It is your Christian duty to help remove those Southern heads that remain lodged in asses.

Why Christian conservatives are souring on the GOP.
"... let's see what happens when the evangelicals he (Reed) once served absorb the evidence in the Senate report. It's damning. It depicts an enterprise that used religious voters as marks: Lobbyists effortlessly twisted them to achieve goals sometimes directly at odds with their beliefs. They were punk'd."
The Reed story confirms what many devout Christians have argued since conservative social activists became a force in national politics in the 1970s: Engaging in worldly political maneuvering is ultimately debasing. Promises made at election time go unfulfilled until four months before the next election, and then suddenly Republicans are talking about gay marriage again.
Why do terror experts hate America? Why? WHY?! Damn your "thinking" and "knowledge" and "insight".

U.S. losing war on terror, experts say:
"WASHINGTON - The United States is losing its fight against terrorism and the Iraq war is the biggest reason why, more than eight of 10 American terrorism and national security experts concluded in a poll released yesterday.

One participant, a former CIA official who described himself as a conservative Republican, said the war in Iraq has provided global terrorist groups with a recruiting bonanza, a valuable training ground and a strategic beachhead at the crossroads of the oil-rich Persian Gulf and Turkey."
...And not in a good "swinging" kind of way. Y'all, this shit is serious. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever use an electronic voting machine. Use an absentee ballot.

A Single Person Could Swing an Election:
"To determine what it would take to hack a U.S. election, a team of cybersecurity experts turned to a fictional battleground state called Pennasota and a fictional gubernatorial race between Tom Jefferson and Johnny Adams. It's the year 2007, and the state uses electronic voting machines.

Jefferson was forecast to win the race by about 80,000 votes, or 2.3 percent of the vote. Adams's conspirators thought, 'How easily can we manipulate the election results?'

The experts thought about all the ways to do it. And they concluded in a report issued yesterday that it would take only one person, with a sophisticated technical knowledge and timely access to the software that runs the voting machines, to change the outcome."
We're still in this fight.

Net neutrality amendment dies
"'The tie was a procedural loss and a huge political win at the same time,'' said Adam Green, spokesman for 'Every day and every week ... members of Congress hear from their constituents and momentum moves in favor of net neutrality.''"
This came from Americablog. It is a video showing Rove dining in the evening. Pretty creepy:
