Potentially, Maybe, Possibly, Making Plans, Might.....

Maddow was absolutely stellar last week. This post gives a good run down of how Maddow dominated. Really good stuff:

Daily Kos: Rachel Maddow is single-handedly changing this country's trajectory:
"The idea was that black voters weren‘t being denied the right to vote based on race. That would be illegal. No, those voters just couldn‘t pass this literacy test.

This isn‘t the plot of some Kagzo (ph) Klansman gothic short story. This isn‘t a theoretical for first-year law students. This isn‘t some State Department report on some tin pot dictatorship halfway around the world that we can‘t pronounce.

This is American history. This is really, really recent American history—as in this lifetime for a lot of people American history.

And the opening night speech at the national tea party convention this weekend proposed bringing the literacy test for voting back. And that proposal got a warm round of applause."

It stopped raining here in NorCal, thus proving that clouds do not exist..... or something.

Weather and Climate... not the same thing.

When Bill Nye is smacking you down..... you are a sad human being.

Bill Nye the Science Guy: Climate change deniers are ‘unpatriotic’ | Raw Story:
"'[We] remind you that global warming was the first term for this phenomenon that we now call can climate change,' he said. 'So it‘s very reasonable that a snowstorm in Washington that‘s this severe is a result of climate change.'

'There‘s more energy in the atmosphere, and this is stirring things up,' Nye continued. 'If you want to get serious about it, these guys claiming that the snow in Washington disproves climate change are almost unpatriotic. It's really, they're denying science.'"

"Potential Use" and "making plans". Sigh. Weak and wrong.

Damn. My people are getting organized. Nice.

The Scavenger : Atheist billboards in Sacto: 'Are you good without God?':
"Don't believe in the Man Upstairs? Atheists and agnostics want you to know that you're not the only one. And they've been spreading this message through a nationwide campaign that started last year. With the help of an umbrella organization called the United Coalition of Reason, local atheist groups have paid for billboards and other ads in about a dozen cities, including San Diego, Houston, Tulsa and New Orleans. Signs like the ones that recently emerged in Sacramento ask 'Are you good without God? Millions are.' Others proclaim 'Don't believe in God? You are not alone,' while the NYC subway ads point out, 'A million New Yorkers are good without God. Are you?'"

Some of these really are outrageous:
