"Faith: not wanting to know what is true." - Friedrich Nietzsche
I like this one:

"Christianity… is an old metaphysical fiction, stuffed with fables, contradictions and absurdities: it was spawned in the fevered imagination of the Orientals, and then spread to our Europe, where some fanatics espoused it, where some intriguers pretended to be convinced by it and where some imbeciles actually believed it."
— Frederick the Great, King of Prussia (1740–1786), quoted in Niall Ferguson’s superb history Civilization: The West and the Rest.

Freddy the G did not mince words. Not that I necessarily approve of what he said, but you have to admit it's kind of funny. He's probably rotting in hell right now.

Wernher von Braun (1912-1977)

One of the pioneers of modern rocketry was Wernher von Braun. Dr. von Braun was perhaps the leading force behind America’s space program. His team developed the four-stage Jupiter rocket that launched Explorer I, the first United States satellite. Another of his projects was the launching of the Saturn V rocket which put the first astronauts on the moon. Von Braun was considered one of the world’s foremost rocket engineers.

Dr. von Braun recognized that science alone can never satisfy the soul. He wrote:

It is as difficult for me to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advance of science. Far from being independent or opposing forces, science and religion are sisters... There is certainly no scientific reason why God cannot retain the same position in our modern world that He held before we began probing His creation with the telescope and cyclotron (1981, 35,38).

You are confused. It's Obama and the Democrat who are shutting down the government. Obama has no problem negotiating with REAL terrorist in Iran, while at the same time his closest advisers compare the Republicans to terrorist. With that kind of bizarre attitude and unconcealed hatred on Obama's team, it's no wonder they don't mind screwing the public with a government shut down.
Obama is, and always has been, a radical. Fomenting trouble, even to the point of harming the nation, is second nature to him. His ego is so huge the idea of any kind of compromise is unthinkable to him.
"...It's Obama and the Democrat who are shutting down the government..."

With all due respect buzzer, that's a load of bull.

The Senate passed a clean CR that even the republican leadership thought was a good idea and the far right base in the house shot it down for purely political reasons.

You can't make unreasonable demands and then blame the other guy when he refuses to do things your way.

A shut down looks likely at this point and the republican party will take the blame for any hardship that causes.

Let's start first with what they did to other countries, like Russia, its various subjugated slave-states and Eastern Europe. Not to mention China, Cambodia and a few other Asian "people's republics". Or what's still going on in North Korea. How about you explain socialism's little shenanigans in those places first?

We're all ears. Please don't bore us with "well, they were not the REAL socialism". That's racist and anti-multi-cultural. Those folks thought they were the real deal.(Half of them used the very word "socialist" in the name of their damn country!) I won't tolerate any intolerant disparagement of other cultures.

US shutdown likely as House Republicans amend budget bill

Setting up a high-stakes political showdown, the US House votes Saturday on a Republican plan that keeps government open through mid-December but delays implementation of President Barack Obama's health care law.

But Democrats made it clear that such a move will almost certainly result in a shutdown of federal agencies after the fiscal year ends Monday night.

House Speaker John Boehner gathered his caucus and convened a rare Saturday session as Congress struggled to break a funding impasse that, if unresolved, would require hundreds of thousands of federal workers to stay home.

More than a million US military personnel would remain on duty, but with no pay until a spending deal is reached...

http://news.yahoo.com/republicans-plot-unifie...

...a furious Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid attacked the move as "pointless" brinkmanship that could end in economic crisis.

"To be absolutely clear, the Senate will reject both the one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act and the repeal of the medical device tax," Reid said in a statement.

"The American people will not be extorted by Tea Party anarchists.”

"Obama the Centrist"

by Brad DeLong:

Despite the frequent cries of ... Republicans that Barack Obama is trying to bring European-style socialism to the United States, it is now very clear that the US president wishes to govern from one place and one place only: the center....On all of these policies – anti-recession, banking, fiscal, environmental, anti-discrimination, rule of law, healthcare – you could close your eyes and convince yourself that, at least as far as the substance is concerned, Obama is in fact a moderate Republican named George H.W. Bush, Mitt Romney, John McCain, or Colin Powell....[...more...]

I tend to be an agnostic (with a definite does of skepticism), but there is nothing in our scientific understanding of reality that precludes the existence of a supreme being.

You are free to enjoy anything you like. What you are not free to do is have someone else pay for it. Or perhaps you think you should be living in a huge house on a hill with some other folks working the fields while you sip mint juleps? Because believe it or not, free sh*t does not materialize of of thin air. Somebody has to do the work.

What you want is to be in charge of what's produced, even though it's others who do the producing. What does that make them? Just what to you call someone who works but the fruits of their labor are taken from them and given to others? Isn't there a name for that? Let's all put on our thinking caps and see if we can remember....

And what does that make you? Do you own a broad-brimmed straw hat, an parasol and an all-white, floor length dress, all set for the cotillion Ms. Charlotte? Do you say "fiddle dee-dee" a lot?

Just what are you & your ilk and what are those people who toil at your leisure?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

I wasn't talking to you. I was addressing the stripper. At least in her case there's a chance for some tittilating entertainment. You merely posting cut&paste DNC talking points, which only leaves you intellectually naked. I prefer the real thing.
