The Worst Thing About 9/11

Yes, it’s too bad 3,000 people were killed on September 11, 2001. Three thousand families were torn apart. But much, much worse is the blasphemy — the terrible foul un-Godly language that was uttered that day.

At least that's the viewpoint of the American Family Association (and the drones who love them). Remember, if you’re occupying a skyscraper that’s just been rammed by an airliner, your final words should be “oh, gosh darn it” rather than “F$#!#%&%$#$#%#%###!!!!”

If you’re a rescue worker pulling mutilated bodies out of the rubble, please confine your expletives to “oh dear.” No matter how revolted and sickened you are, you must never say “Jesus F#!%&%#!!”

On September 10th CBS will be airing an updated version of their documentary “9/11.” (It was first aired in March 2002.) The documentary is completely unedited.

The Rev. Donald Wildmon and other members of the bookburning community are appalled; but not because of the unspeakable horror of the 9/11 attacks. Not because of the thousands of family tragedies created that day. No, they’re up in arms because firemen and other rescue workers are shown swearing (gasp!).

The American Family Association is asking CBS affiliates not to air this documentary because of the uncensored language. They’re also demanding that the FCC impose maximum indecency fines against all stations that show this program. Get a life!

And Donald Wildmon — go play with your snakes.

The War on Christmas

As all decent Americans know, the Homosexual Agenda is the single biggest threat facing our great nation today. But in our eternal vigilance against the Gay Menace, we must not lose focus on some of the other threats to America’s moral fiber.

Take the War on Christmas. Yes, it’s still summer and Christmas is four months away, but we must always be on guard. Secular humanists are slowly but surely chipping away at everything we hold sacred.

“Happy Holidays” is replacing “Merry Christmas” at more and more department stores, and the cancer is spreading. Sam’s Club is the latest American company to turn its back on God. In the August issue of their in-house magazine, they use that blasphemous Happy Holidays nonsense.

Jesus is turning in his grave!

Homosexuals, uppity women demanding abortion, and now a bunch of Pagan cashiers who won’t say Merry Christmas — it’s just unbearable! Christians are being persecuted. And we need to act.

We must pray and pray. Pray often. Pray loudly. And pray some more. And we need to keep on pestering everyone we know with prayers and lectures and sermons until America comes to her senses.

Where Are They Now: Pat Boone

Anybody remember Pat Boone, that squeaky-clean icon of the 1950s and early ‘60s? He was famous for doing sterile white-bread cover versions of rock and roll hits. He took some of the wickedest examples of The Devil’s Music and transformed them into cute sugar-coated little ditties that Ward and June Cleaver could tap their feet to.

Well, he’s still around. He’s resurfaced as a comedy writer. He sometimes writes for WorldNetDaily — definitely one of the funniest wackiest comedy sites on the Internet. In his latest “article,” he does a dead-on hilarious imitation of a mouthbreathing Biblethumper. Check it out.

Enlistment Age: Going Up and Up

Don’t pay any attention to all that leftwing naysaying. Military recruitment is going just fine, thank you very much. The Marine Corps is bringing thousands of inactive Marines back to Iraq — well, ahem, sputter, uh, it’s, it’s not what you think. The Army has raised its enlistment age to 42 — uhh, mmm, squirm, now let’s not read anything into this.

Look on the bright side. Families are going through Boot Camp together. Family memories are being created. Imagine: you’re 42 years old, and your 19-year-old son is in the same company with you. Your drill sergeant runs up to you, face twisted in fury, and yells “Listen up, Worm! How many times to I have to show you this?!?!”

And there’s your son, watching Daddy get screamed at and dissed by a younger stronger tougher male. Ahh, a Kodak moment.

America is sure changing — and for the better of course. Low-income workers don’t need any help from the government because if they aren’t making enough money they’re just stupid and lazy. We don’t need to worry about Environmental Armageddon — if it happens, it was God's will. And military service is no longer just for the young and fit: if you can breathe and talk, We Need You!!!

Until recently the enlistment age was 35 (and most enlistees were much younger than that). Then they raised the maximum age to 39 because things were a little, well, uhh…you know…And now it’s 42??? We might as well just cut to the chase and start scouring retirement communities and assisted living facilities. “Sir! You moved! Uncle Sam Wants You!!!”

Pretty soon running 10 or 15 miles a day and doing jillions of pushups will be replaced by Yoga, deep breathing and various physical therapy movements. “Drop down and give me 40!!!” will give way to “now, try to move your arm slowly in a circular motion. That’s gooood.”

And think of the money saved by the Pentagon and the Veterans’ Administration. We have countries to invade; we don’t have money to spend on whiny veterans coming home and crying “Waaaaahhhh!!!!! I have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.” “Boohoohooooooo!!! I lost my right leg.”

The VA will be able to respond with “Hell, his great-grandson says he can’t remember anything anyway. We’re off the hook.” “He was already limping along with a cane. So what if he lost a leg — what’s the difference?”

Someday, foxholes will be full of soldiers reminiscing about their childhoods, and repeating the same stories over and over. And watch for armored vehicles patrolling the streets of Baghdad — with their left blinkers on.

Cuba: Agricultural Utopia

Before we march into Cuba and take back our colony, we might try learning from some of Castro’s achievements. How about that 97% literacy rate — something most countries (including this one) don’t even come close to.

Cuba has also achieved something that’s only talked about by natural-foods/back-to-the-land types and a few economists: a complete system of organic and self-sustaining agriculture. No other country has achieved this.

Cuba’s main crop used to be sugar cane. Most of it was exported to the Soviet Union, which paid five times the market price just to keep Cuba propped up. And Cuba imported most of its food from Russia. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1989, this arrangement collapsed overnight. Out of this desperation, they ended up creating an agricultural utopia.

With no more subsidies and very limited resources, Cuba had to do something other than exporting tropical crops and importing food. They had to maximize food production, and out of necessity this was done organically. They were no longer able to import oil from Russia; without this oil they couldn’t run their tractors or manufacture fertilizer or pesticides.

So they started using oxen instead of tractors. They started using natural compost instead of fertilizer. And they were able to control insect pests with natural pesticides and beneficial insects. Cuba has about 200 manufacturers of biopesticides. Their crops also thrive because of heavy use of crop rotation, intercropping and soil conservation.

One agricultural expert thinks Cuba may be the only country to have a completely organic and self-sustaining system of agriculture. He said “They had no choice. Their only choice was to look inwards, to the resources they had and say: ‘Can we make more of these resources?’”

Cuba has about 7,000 tiny plots of land in urban areas. Most of Havana’s produce comes from about 200 of these gardens.

For whatever it’s worth, Cubans have the same life expectancy as Americans, and a much lower infant mortality rate.

A sociologist at the University of California-Berkeley said: “What happened in Cuba was remarkable. It was remarkable that they decided to prioritize food production. Other countries in the region took the neo-liberal option and exported ‘what they were good at’ and imported food. The Cubans went for food security and part of that was prioritizing small farmers.”

It seems like other countries could benefit from this approach of organic non-intensive agriculture. Think there’s any chance of this system taking hold in Western countries?

Riiight. Over Monsanto’s dead body.

Rats Deserting the Sinking Ship

“Our mission [in Iraq] has failed.”

“Staying the course is pointless, and it’s time to start thinking about Plan B — how we might disengage with the least damage possible.”

“We do need a president who, I think, is intellectually curious. And that is a big question, whether George W. Bush has the intellectual curiousness — if that’s a word — to continue leading this country over the next couple of years.”

“Foreign policy realists considered Middle East stability the goal. The realists’ critics, who regard realism as reprehensibly unambitious, considered stability the problem. That problem has been solved.”

All right, who are these cut-and-run, Blame America First whiners? The above quotes are from, respectively: William F. Buckley, Thomas Friedman, Joe Scarborough and George Will. A real hotbed of anti-American activism, eh?

On Scarborough’s TV show, a recent topic was whether “George Bush’s mental weakness is damaging America’s credibility at home and abroad.” For ten minutes during this show, a caption at the bottom of the screen said “IS BUSH AN IDIOT?”

When someone told Scarborough that other presidents had been called stupid, Scarborough replied “I think George Bush is in a league by himself. I don’t think he has the intellectual depth as these other people.”

Also jumping ship is Rich Lowry. In April of 2005 he wrote “It is time to say it unequivocally: We are winning in Iraq.” Just this month his bubbling enthusiasm changed to “Success in Iraq seems more out of reach than it has at any time since the initial invasion three years ago.”

Lowry also asked whether Iraq is “Bush’s Vietnam.”

Why do these conservatives hate America?

Litigation and Big Tobacco

When the major tobacco companies were being investigated and sued for millions of deaths and injuries, their biggest refrain was “too much litigation,” “too many lawyers,” “too many lawsuits.” Now it seems some of these Big Tobacco executives have changed their minds, and they’ve decided that lawsuits are kinda fun.

A virtually unknown cigarette manufacturer in rural Washington is being sued by Marlboro. Supposedly their cigarette pack looks too much like the Marlboro pack, and Marlboro is suing for trademark infringement.

Who is this big threat to Marlboro? His name is Delbert Wheeler, Sr. He owns a small logging company and lives on the Yakama reservation in central Washington. Last year Wheeler decided to singlehandedly bring Big Tobacco to its knees started supplementing his income by making cigarettes and selling them to retailers on the reservation. The brand name is King Mountain.

So, one of the wealthiest corporations in the world is suing an individual Native American who’s trying to supplement his income with a small business. Sort of like Goliath hitting David with a slingshot.

Hunters and Stereotypes

Hunters and country singers have both been plagued with negative stereotypes. They’re just too easy to make fun of. It’s probably not fair, but then again stereotypes usually get started for a reason. This pitiful douchebag is a shining example.

Country singer Troy Lee Gentry has earned the title of lowlife scumbag of the week. He purchased a tame black bear from a wildlife photographer. He paid $4,650 for the bear, and then he killed it with a bow and arrow inside an enclosed pen. Brave little fuckstick, eh?

And that’s not all. Gentry videotaped the killing of the bear, and then he edited the video to make it look like he was killing the bear out in the wild, in a real hunting situation.

Gentry and the wildlife photographer who sold him the bear have both been given sealed indictments. If convicted they could face up to five years in prison. Hopefully they’ll both get 300-pound sweaty cellmates who will, uh, put them through their paces. They deserve to be passed around from cell to cell like a peace pipe (as Jack Nicholson said in Anger Management).

Gentry’s most famous country hit is “If you ever stop loving me I’ll kill you Bitch.”

Gas Prices: A Silver Lining?

No question, it sucks paying $3 a gallon, with $4 or even $5 per gallon staring us in the face. But since these prices are probably here for the long haul, they might lead to some long-term changes in America’s driving habits.

A new trend has just (barely) started: some people are moving out of the suburbs and into the cities. There’s no groundswell or anything, but it’s a beginning. America’s entire infrastructure — our entire culture for that matter — is centered around cars and driving.

This might have made sense when gas was 32 cents a gallon. It’s really a kick to watch some of those movies from the 1950s and ‘60s where people are cruising along Highway One in Southern California, and there’s no traffic. Sorry folks, those days are gone. Get over it. Will the American people adapt?

There’s a popular psychology parable about rats in tunnels. If a rat goes into a tunnel and finds some cheese there, this rat will keep going into the same tunnel expecting to find more cheese. But if no more cheese is put into the tunnel, the rat will eventually get the drift and stop going into the tunnel to look for cheese. The difference between rats and people: people never do get the drift. If there was once cheese in the tunnel (figuratively), a person will keep going back and back and back into that same tunnel, determined to find some cheese.

For the past 30 years we’ve had one energy crisis after another. Everyone says unprintable things about the oil companies for hoarding supplies. Everybody rants about those &%$#! treehuggers who won’t let us ransack every last acre of wilderness to look for more oil.

But nobody will change their driving habits. You can’t blame them (well, a little). Our entire infrastructure is geared toward everyone driving everywhere by themselves. Housing prices are forcing everyone to move out to the boondocks where they can afford to rent or buy something, and then commute 40, 50 or a hundred miles to their jobs.

And we’ve all seen subdivisions that are no more than 200 yards from a mall. But the mall is across the freeway and/or separated by a huge wall. So you have to drive out of your housing tract and get onto the main boulevard (which has no sidewalks; you’re risking your life if you try walking or cycling).

There have even been studies linking obesity to the fact that walking in the suburbs is difficult to impossible.

So maybe, just maybe, the reality of paying extortionate prices for fuel (just like everybody else in the world) will force us to adapt.

American Capitalism: a Parable

A friend forwarded this to me. A tip of the hat to whoever originated it:

A Japanese company and an American company decided to have a canoe race on the Missouri River. Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance before the race. On the big day, the Japanese team won by a mile. The Americans, very discouraged and depressed, decided to investigate the reason for the crushing defeat.

A management team made up of senior management was formed to investigate and recommend appropriate action. Their conclusion was the Japanese team had 8 people rowing and 1 person steering, while the American team had 8 people steering and 1 person rowing. So American management hired a consulting company and paid them a large amount of money for a second opinion. They advised that too many people were steering the boat, while not enough people were rowing.

To prevent another loss to the Japanese, the American rowing team's management structure was totally reorganized to 4 Steering supervisors, 3 area steering superintendents and 1 assistant Superintendent steering manager.

They also implemented a new performance system that would give the 1 person rowing the boat greater incentive to work harder. It was called the "Rowing Quality First Program," with meetings, dinners and free pens for the rower. There was discussion of getting new paddles, canoes and other equipment, extra vacation days for practices and bonuses.The next year the Japanese won by two miles.

Humiliated, the American management laid off the rower for poor performance, halted development of a new canoe, sold the paddles, and canceled all capital investments for new equipment. The money saved was distributed to the Senior Executives as bonuses and the next year's racing team was outsourced to India.

Bush: Tough On Terror???

As low as Bush’s polls have sunk, the American public still gives him somewhat high ratings for “protecting” us from terror. WTF?!?!?!

Then again, 50% of Americans still believe Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction right up until our 2003 invasion. And that percentage is UP from 36% last year! (Insert snide comment about IQs and education levels here _____________________.)

That legendary “Liberal Media” needs to spend less time on athletes using steroids, and Mel Gibson's latest blubberings, and more time on stories like this.

This story is now being covered by the mainstream media, but only because alternative news sources and bloggers have been hammering away at it for several days. Bush wanted to slash $6 million from funds for developing explosives detection technology. Hey Whiskeybreath, this technology is what we need for catching terrorists and hijackers. Heellllooooo!!!!!

Sure it’s fun to spout off slogans like “Wanted dead or alive” and “Bring ‘Em On” and “Fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here.” But along with all the spinning and soundbiting, there’s actually some work involved.

The Homeland Security Dept. has also failed to spend $200 million in research and development funds from past years. This money was finally rescinded by lawmakers. The department was also slow to start testing a new liquid explosives detector that the Japanese provided to the United States earlier this year. Anybody home?????

This recent terror plot uncovered in London — which Bush and Cheney have been squeezing for every last drop of PR — would have involved liquid explosives. Japanese airports are already using these liquid explosive detectors.

We aren’t gonna protect ourselves from terror attacks by invading other countries and Swiftboating everyone who disagrees with Bush’s foreign policy. It’s time to put away the soundbites and start working more effectively.

Poisoning People With Pesticides

An area near Sacramento, CA is about to be sprayed with pesticides. There have been several cases of West Nile Virus, and authorities insist that spraying is the only way to get rid of mosquitoes carrying the virus.

A lot of people are disagreeing over whether it’s necessary to spray an entire region with poison. But West Nile can be fatal, so there are valid arguments on both sides.

But this whole situation reminds me of the summer of 2001 in Sonoma County (North of San Francisco). Residents of rural Western Sonoma County were threatened all summer with the prospect of being sprayed with pesticides. And the reason that we might all be sprayed with poison had nothing to do with public health or safety.

We had this threat hanging over our heads all summer because an insect pest might be threatening the profits of the wine industry. The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors is owned lock stock and barrel by a few wealthy vineyard owners and winemakers.

If pesticides had been sprayed on the entire area, organic farmers would lose their certification and be forced out of business. People with certain health problems would have their lives endangered. And a lot of people just didn’t want their children and pets sprayed with poison.

All of these people were pretty much told to shut the fuck up and quit whining. Millionaire grape growers had spoken. Their prostitutes on the Board of Supervisors dutifully bent over whenever they were summoned by the wine industry.

The insect pest — the Glassy-winged Sharpshooter — was native to Southern California and was coming North on plants sold in nurseries. Some people thought nurseries should inspect all plants being shipped from Southern California so that insect pests wouldn’t be exported. But the nursery industry also has a lot of political clout and they decided that would be too much of a bother.

Grape growers had lots of ways to prevent infestations, but all of these methods would’ve meant a 1% profit reduction and/or would just be too much trouble. For one thing, there’s an ash-like substance that can be sprayed on the grape vines which would keep insects away. But this substance would turn the grape leaves an odd color and tourists wouldn’t go “oooohhh” and “aaahhhhh” as they drove by. No deal.

One way to prevent insect infestations is to have a diversity of crops. Sonoma County agriculture has become almost a mono-culture. In the past few years, longtime Sonoma County farmers have been plowing up their crop fields and chopping down their orchards faster than George W. Bush running to the liquor store. Grapes were the money crop, and now that’s practically all there is.

The more vineyards there are, the more clout the wine industry has. And more vineyards guarantee that any possible future insect pest will be "an emergency."

There’s Gold in Them Thar Invalids

Medicare patients make good hostages. You’ve probably heard about this already, but maybe you weren’t aware of the extent, of just how ruthless the Bush Administration will get when it comes to propping up the pharmaceutical industry.

U.S. Customs has been seizing packages of prescription drugs mailed from Canadian pharmacies to American patients. So far, about 40,000 of these packages have been confiscated. Do you understand what this means?? 40,000 patients were waiting for their prescribed medication to arrive in the mail — and it never arrived.

What the fuck is going on here? Again, we’re not talking about a third world dictatorship. This isn’t Afghanistan or North Korea. This is happening right here, today, in the United States of America.

And in all its decency, the government doesn’t even inform these patients when their prescribed medication has been confiscated. That means 40,000 people were thinking “thank God my blood pressure medicine will be arriving tomorrow or the next day.” NOT!! Gotcha!!

How many lives have been endangered because somebody’s heart medicine never arrived? How many people have died from this? No deaths have been reported, but that might be because our lapdog “media” has been instructed to keep quiet about it.

Since patients aren’t informed when Big Brother confiscates steals their drugs, they presumably aren’t reimbursed for the cost either. Oh well, they didn’t need the money. Plus, they’re just old and in the way.

Whatever happened to that Culture of Life we keep hearing about?

Right now there’s an amendment to a Homeland Security appropriations bill which would prohibit Customs from using federal money to steal people’s prescription drugs. ::smirk:: Let’s see how long it’ll take for that amendment to be deleted during the next committee conference. The Drug Cartel will instruct their prostitutes to bend over and delete that pesky amendment, and that’ll be that.

Putting aside the cold-hearted ruthlessness and meanspirited-ness of the Drug Cartel and their prostitutes (and that’s not easy to do) — conservatives are trampling all over their favorite slogans.

Socialized Medicine. OOOOHHHH!!!! For decades that ominous-sounding phrase was trotted out whenever anyone suggested a safety net for people’s medical costs. Try to present a logical argument, and you’d be met with “Socialized Medicine?!?!?!?!?!?” End of discussion.

But Socialized Profits — hey, cool!

Also, there was something about a “Free Market” I think it was. Free enterprise, laissez-faire, build a better mousetrap, find a need and fill it — ring any bells? If Safeway is charging too much for avocados, people will go down the street to Albertson’s and buy them. Joe’s Hardware Store is charging too much for that toolkit you need? Shop around — Ace Hardware has it for less. Prescription drugs are too expensive in the U.S.? Get the exact same drugs from Canada and pay half the price.

For some reason, those first two examples are perfectly legal, even encouraged. They’re examples of what differentiates America from those Communist governments we were fighting for all those decades.

But that third free enterprise example is illegal. Anybody have a logical reason?

Cuba: We Want Our Colony Back

Before we were so rudely interrupted, we owned a tropical island paradise, right here in our own backyard. This little "interruption" has been going on for forty-seven years now. Enough is enough!

For the past forty-seven years, decent Americans have been praying (e.g. “what the fuck are You waiting for???”) for an end to this un-American monstrosity at our doorstep. Now that Castro is either dead or near death, let’s put an end to this nonsense once and for all. We want our colony back.

God created Cuba for one, and only one, reason: to serve as an exotic vacationland where Important Americans could go to unwind. Cuba’s colorful natives and peasants were only too eager to serve as guides, servants and prostitutes for their American guests. It’s what they’re for.

They were happy then. They didn’t start running around sniveling about “unfairness” or being “exploited” until those damn Communists came in and got them all stirred up.

Our back yard was such a nice place before Castro came along and ruined everything. Cuba, Guatemala and El Salvador were all blessed with America’s favorite export: democracy at the point of a gun. Everybody was happy. Friendly generals were watching over American business interests, and simple happy natives didn’t have to worry about thinking for themselves. Everybody wins.

Those were the days…Ward and June Cleaver, Lucille Ball, and friendly colonial dictators who cheerfully said “how high, Sir” whenever we said “Jump!” It doesn’t get any better than that.

Let’s turn back the clock.

The Ghost of Tom DeLay

The noise is deafening. You hear it too? It’s the sound of the Republican Party scrabbling, flailing and writhing, trying to get that albatross off their necks. A judge has just ruled — Again — that the albatross has to stay.

Republicans have made their bed, and now they have to lie in it. They have to wallow in it and rub their noses in it. And they will LIKE it.

Yesterday a Federal Appeals Court upheld a previous ruling that Tom DeLay’s name has to remain on the ballot, even though he resigned in disgrace and fled from Texas with his tail between his legs.

Last March DeLay won the primary for this November’s election. Three months later he resigned, and Republicans have been hoping to put another candidate on the ballot to replace DeLay.

This makes two judges now who have ruled against them. Will they finally get it, or will they keep on appealing the case?

The criminal indictments against DeLay had already been pending for months and months when he CHOSE to enter the primary last March and run for re-election. He’s been so used to running Congress with an iron fist and a bucket of sleaze, he just assumed our checks and balances would crumble beneath him. Wrong!!

The king is dead. And the king has to run for re-election. Gotta love it.

Non-Smokers Crippled by Lung Disease

This has nothing to do with tobacco or second-hand smoke. An artificial-flavoring chemical has been creating deadly side effects among workers who handle it. Victims can lose 80% of their breathing capacity.

Diacetyl is used as a flavoring chemical. (If that link doesn't work, try some of these.) If you’ve had artificial pineapple, pistachio, cappuccino, or key lime flavoring — among others — you’ve probably ingested it. So far this lung disease has only affected workers who handle the chemical, and not consumers who ingest it. But who knows?

Some of the workers disabled by this disease have been young and physically fit, in addition to being non-smokers. The disease is called bronchiolitis obliterans. It literally obliterates the airways of the lungs, resulting in drastically reduced breathing capacity.

The Teamsters and United Food and Commercial Workers have urged the Bush Administration to place emergency restrictions on workers’ exposure to diacetyl. In a letter to the Labor Secretary, they said “Although the precise number of workers already suffering respiratory effects from exposure to diacetyl is unknown, the potential magnitude of the problem is sizable. It is now time … to use the scientific evidence to protect American workers from debilitating lung disease.”

Diacetyl was first linked several years ago to several deaths and dozens of injuries among workers at microwave popcorn factories.

The artificial flavoring industry, like most American industries, is “self-policing.” A public health expert said “It’s terrific that industry wants to play a role in solving the problem, but it’s the responsibility of regulators to ensure that employers provide a safe workplace. It’s not a question of how honest you are, or how good you are. It’s that the financial relationship clouds your judgment. And Cal-OSHA is not there to watch the data being collected.”

One of the manufacturers of Diacetyl — a German conglomerate — has known of its deadly effects since the 1970s. And the American flavoring industry has known of the ill effects since 1985, according to internal documents.

James Dobson: Prostitute

James Dobson is one of the best known and most powerful Biblehumpers in America. We all know his hateful attempts to marginalize millions of Americans. But how sincere are his beliefs?

Right now he’s trying to collect enough signatures for a “marriage initiative” in Colorado. He’s using paid signature gatherers. Nothing new about that. But, some of these signature gatherers are also circulating a petition to legalize marijuana. And Dobson knows about this contradiction.

This means Dobson’s group, Focus on the Family, is paying signature gatherers who are also pushing for a cause that Focus on the Family is righteously against.

The Bible of course doesn’t mention marijuana, but Dobson, like most of his fellow fireandbrimstoners, has preached against the legalization of the evil weed. But as long as he can get his “pro-family” initiative on the ballot, he doesn’t mind being in bed with another group that he hates.

Here’s another fact you might not know about Dobson: He’s a psychologist. His degrees are in Psychology, and not Divinity or Theology as you’d expect. Who would know better than a psychologist how to manipulate millions of people?

So, he’s a psychologist, and he’s paying signature gatherers who are promoting a cause that he violently opposes. Is this “Christian” really sincere in his beliefs? Or is he amoral? Maybe he's just a megalomaniac, crusading for his own power.
