F*ck Hope

Interesting thought process here.

I was just watching The Neverending Story, and one of the characters says "People who have no hopes are easily controlled, and he who has the control has the power."

I couldn't help but relate this to modern politics. Obama campaigned on Hope, and the Tea Party seems to disagree with everything he says, wanting to stay stagnant.

George Carlin once offered a slogan for uber-conservatives: "F*ck hope".

Perhaps Gmork knew this best. Maybe taking away hope for a better future, filling the people's heads with delusions that the past was some grand and perfect device that Hope has destroyed, has made these people easily controlled. And he who has the control (Beck, Rush, Palin) does have the power.

Our Founding Fathers Wanted America to be Christian! (Well, not really)

No fancy rants here, folks. Plain and simple:

"The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion" from the Treaty of Tripoli signed by John Adams and often attributed to George Washington.


Response to the Facebook Argument: Militant Atheism

I think Unreasonable Faith posted a comic that summed the entire argument up perfectly.
