So it’s veterans day and the day we remember those that fell.
I think it is also a time to remember to be vigilante.
A Christian group is using Fox News to go after Asatru. It’s disturbing the amount of misinformation. The two woman were honest and thoughtful…but the Nazi angle is untrue.
Apparently creationists are trying to get around laws against teaching religion in schools by using cdesign proponentsists instead of Creationist. They got caught.
The house passed the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007, lets hope the Senate comes to their senses and doesn’t let it pass. It’s scary. Take this passage for example:
`(2) VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization’ means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change.
Who decides that? The bill puts together a committee to analyze these things then decide what to do about. It could make anyone who disagrees with the government a criminal. All the reps from Colorado voted for it. Write to them and write to the senators.
And finally in news of the stupid: Taking photographs in the US is getting iffy:
Digital Cameras caught on because parents didn’t want to be thrown in jail for taking photos of their kids. You laugh? It was a real concern in the late 90’s. Folks barely could use a computer buy them.
