Ronald, who poses as an intellectual on the JREF forum fancies himself as a defender of truth, while contradicting the majority of the American people and almost all the people in the rest of the world. He is what might be called a pseudoskeptic in the true intellectual world, but personally I would say that he is Not even wrong.

And Heeere’s Ronald…

In a more rational world, a mass delusion that gripped millions of citizens of the strongest, richest, and most technologically advanced nation would set off alarm bells in the citadels of culture. The guardians —— thinkers, teachers, writers, print and electronic media —— would recognize their duty and rise to meet the crisis. Here, in Twenty—First Century America, a sizable segment of the voting population believes that the President promoted a ruinous war through a deliberate policy of lies and deception, and the loudest cries of ‘Burn the witch!’ are coming from the intelligentsia.

Confronting irrationality is an unrewarding business. People believe strange things because they want to. A quirky notion is a security blanket, a battered recliner —— an object fraught with so much emotional baggage that the gentlest suggestion to throw it out provokes snarling resistance. Children often cling to a belief in Santa after they have matured past the innocent embrace of magic and logical impossibilities. Embarrassingly, many Democrats are willing to maintain a similar belief that George Bush misled the nation, even though five minutes’ reflection should suffice to reveal the almost surreal implausibility of it all.

This goes beyond audacity —— this is delusional. Everywhere, liberals and leftists are inhaling deeply, inflating their lungs in preparation for the salutary roar, ‘BUSH LIED!’ I will therefore assert again, very clearly, that nobody is actually prepared to defend the proposition that George Bush took this nation to war knowing that there were no WMDs in Iraq.

Here’s some more of the same crap…):

Evening Jukebox… Run

By- Suzie-Q @ 5:00 PM MST

Warning: If you are prone to epileptic seizures or seasickness, you may not want to watch this! It has been banned from MTV because it failed The Harding Test… due to the strobe effects. Other than that, it’s a great song and video and of course, I am a Gnarls Barkley fan! 🙂

As women throughout the world gather to observe International Women’s Day on this, the 100th anniversary of the New York City Bread and Roses March, they do so in the face of a seemingly intractable culture of impunity that enables increasingly horrendous acts of violence against women.

In Kenya, women are being gang-raped in refugee camps. In Afghanistan, young girls are forced into marriage. In Mexico and Guatemala women continue to disappear, the victims of brutal rapes and murder. In Iraq, women are being indiscriminately killed in the name of male honor. In the U.S. military, women are more likely to be assaulted by their fellow soldiers than by any enemy. The list, truly, is endless.

Glenn Beck Asks John Hagee: Is Obama The Antichrist?

By- Suzie-Q @ 12:15 PM MST

From: Think Progress– Beck: ‘Is Obama the Antichrist?’
(HT: Chris Achorn) 9:31 pm

Today on his CNN Headline News show, Glenn Beck asked Pastor John Hagee whether Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) is the embodiment of evil:

There are people — they say this about Bill Clinton — he might be the anti-Christ. Odds that Barack Obama is the Antichrist?

In 2006, Beck also called Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) the anti-Christ, stating, “I think we may have found our Antichrist and our next president.”

Mukasey’s Paradox

Jonathan Turley, professor of law at George Washington, writing today in The Los Angeles Times:

The recent decisions of Atty. Gen. Michael B. Mukasey to block any prosecution of Bush administration officials for contempt and to block any criminal investigation of torture led to a chorus of criticism. Many view the decisions as raw examples of political manipulation of the legal process and overt cronyism. I must confess that I was one of those crying foul until I suddenly realized that there was something profound, even beautiful, in Mukasey’s action.

In his twisting of legal principles, the attorney general has succeeded in creating a perfect paradox. Under Mukasey’s Paradox, lawyers cannot commit crimes when they act under the orders of a president — and a president cannot commit a crime when he acts under advice of lawyers….

When reduced to its purest form, Mukasey’s Paradox is that government officials cannot violate the law — but that because executive privilege is also a law, it’s sometimes necessary to violate the law in order to uphold the law.
