RNC spokesman Doug Heye said “I can’t comment on him” when asked about Brown and his connection to the party committee. But Heye said Brown is “not on committee staff” and that the visit to the Voyeur nightclub “was not an RNC event.” He said the RNC is investigating the expenditure and is requesting that the money be returned.

It’s not an RNC event, eh?  That’s so cute.  He’s actually trying.  Seriously, if it were an RNC event, I’d imagine it would be an all-male bondage strip club.

US militia members charged in plot

Can anybody tell me why it is that us atheists are the most distrusted group in the U.S.? I have never heard of atheists getting caught up in this kind of activity. Yet, polls consistently show that we are the most distrusted and despised group in the U.S., below all the other usual whipping boys like Muslims, gays, and immigrants.

Also, I would like to know why incidents like this are not being trumpeted as terrorist plots. It’s only when an environmentalist or Muslim is involved (like that Fruit Of the Boom shithead) that an incident has anything to do with terrorism. But yet, the murderer of Dr. George Tiller was not brought up on terrorism charges. When somebody in Texas flew a plane—let me repeat that part—FLEW A PLANE—into a federal building, it was never discussed as a terrorist incident. Not to mention all the gun-toting right-wing scumbags threatening the president and members of Congress with loaded firearms. Or all these Christian militias we have running around the midwest.

Do me a favor.  Don’t ask me why I want to move back to the coast, okay?

Wow.  This may be one of the scummiest things I have ever seen.  I am ashamed for our nation to have been led by this piece of crap.  Okay, I already felt that way, but this is just…  scummy.

Science is fucking cool. Keep your jebus and your arks and unicorns, reality is pretty damned interesting.

Some people have claimed that high-fructose corn syrup is no different than other sweeteners when it comes to weight gain and obesity, but our results make it clear that this just isn’t true, at least under the conditions of our tests,” said psychology professor Bart Hoebel, who specializes in the neuroscience of appetite, weight and sugar addiction. “When rats are drinking high-fructose corn syrup at levels well below those in soda pop, they’re becoming obese — every single one, across the board. Even when rats are fed a high-fat diet, you don’t see this; they don’t all gain extra weight.

Aww, how – Wait!  What the fuck?
