found this – Dan Abrams Verdict – 13 minutes in length, panel discussion on John McCain’s statement dating back to 1999.

“Republicans have hammered Michelle Obama for her remarks in February that she was proud of America “for the first time in my adult life.” Tonight, however, Dan Abrams showed footage he uncovered of a Fox News interview with John McCain on March 13, 2008, in which McCain said, “I didn’t really love America until I was deprived of her company.”

Abrams thinks McCain’s comments could undermine the “right wing’s steady attacks against Michelle Obama.” click me – McCain I Didn’t Love America Until Held Prisoner.

Barack and Michelle’s Love Story on cover of US Weekly

You a lie and a sack of dead toads if you try and say, this picture isn’t beautiful. I just get goosebumps looking at this lovely brown couple who are headed to the White House and there is no need to change the name to anything differently, the White House will do just fine.

Yes….I see brown people

Barack and Michelle Obama appear on the cover of the Us Weekly hitting newsstands later this week, further establishing their crossover appeal as both political and entertainment figures. The magazine will feature a six-page article on the Obamas’ love story as well as an album of family photos. The cover is headlined “Michelle Obama: Why Barack Loves Her” and teases, “She shops at Target, loved ‘Sex and the City’ and never misses the girls’ recitals. The untold romance between a down-to-earth mom and the man who calls her ‘my rock.'”

Obama forgoes $84 Million in Public Campaign Finance

Go Obama Go Obama Go Obama…. Go!!  Let’s see if John McCain picks up the baton?

Obama, who set records raising money in the primary election, will forgo more than $84 million that would have been available to him in the general election. He would be the first candidate to do so since Congress passed 1970s post-Watergate campaign finance laws. Sen. John McCain, the Republican nominee in waiting, has taken steps to accept the public funds in the general election.

Atheists Should Be More Moderate and Less Extreme

I just read a funny article “How Moderate Should Atheists Be? How Should Atheists Be Less Extreme?”

Many religious theists would like atheists to be more “moderate” in their criticisms of religion, religious beliefs, and theism. They contend that atheists are too intolerant of religion and should show more respect to religious beliefs.

And, I have been told quite often — answer with the very first thing which came to mind, because it is normally the correct answer. So here goes my first thoughts to the answer of this question….

“How Moderate Should Atheists Be….lol” How about as moderate as your everyday normal religious crackpot person. You know the ones that knock and bang loudly on the door each Saturday morning with their Watch Tower in hand and big black Bible in the other.

Or maybe they should be as moderate as the normal everyday person standing on the corner screaming and yelling scriptures and condemning you and everyone else within their earshot to a everlasting eternal fiery Hell.

How about this though, Atheists getting a satellite and cable network station – instead of TBN it would be named ABN ‘Atheist Broadcast Network’.

And, they could have two week long marathons preaching No God and collecting No Money for your entry into Heaven.

(keep reading this wonderful article at How Moderate and Tolerate should an Atheist be?) I really enjoyed the comment from Austine Cline —

It seems to me that demands for atheists to be more “moderate” are ultimately demands for atheists to self-censor and not bring up uncomfortable arguments, facts, and ideas which conflict with religion’s long hold on people’s minds.

People with Higher IQs less likely to believe in God

according to Telegraph.co.uk

A survey of Royal Society fellows found that only 3.3 per cent believed in God – at a time when 68.5 per cent of the general UK population described themselves as believers.

A separate poll in the 90s found only seven per cent of members of the American National Academy of Sciences believed in God.

Professor Lynn said most primary school children believed in God, but as they entered adolescence – and their intelligence increased – many started to have doubts.

He told Times Higher Education magazine: “Why should fewer academics believe in God than the general population? I believe it is simply a matter of the IQ.  Academics have higher IQs than the general population. Several Gallup poll studies of the general population have shown that those with higher IQs tend not to believe in God.”

He said religious belief had declined across 137 developed nations in the 20th century at the same time as people became more intelligent.

If Obama is President Will We Still Call It The White House

The Republican Party of Texas will donate to charity the $1,500 it received for leasing a booth at its state convention to a vendor who sold this racist button, according to reports.

At the Republican state convention, a booth hosted by Republicanmarket was selling a pin Saturday that says: If Obama is President will we still call it the White House.

There were other pins that weren’t necessarily conveying the positive, inclusive, united front that has been portrayed during the convention. One said, “Press 1 for English and Press 2 for Deportation.”

I say We can call it ‘The House That The Republicans Didn’t Take!’ Step aside Boys and Girls!
