All morons hate it when you call them a moron.

(Sorry. I know I've used this quote on more than one occasion. It's just that it's so versatile and true.)

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

~ Isaac Asimov

Truest thing I've read in an awfully long time...


stupid thugs and the silence that allows them

A 15-year-old teenager was caught on video being severely beaten in his high school class room for being gay. The attack occurred at Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio, and was caught on camera as fellow class members watched one teen wait for the victim to enter the room, push him to the ground, and continually punch him in the face. The victim suffered broken teeth and a possible concussion. The perpetrator was suspended for just 3 days.

Union-Scioto has no policy in place that specifically protects students from being bullied or attacked based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The Union-Scioto Local School District does have a policy that prohibits harassment based on sex, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, among others, but it does not specifically protect against harassment based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Tell the Union-Scioto School District to protect LGBT students by prohibiting harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity and to send a message that this beating was unconscionable by expelling the perpetrator!

Our schools and classrooms should ALWAYS be safe. ALWAYS. It should be considered hallowed ground.

As a society, we've allowed this ignorance, this violence, this savagery of decency and rape of civility to happen. We've become use to not just bullies in schools, but guns. Oh... Another school shooting... We shouldn't be used to it. It should be unacceptable. And when it occurs, we, as a community should be swift in our intolerance of such inane behavior. But, more than bandages for symptoms, we should be looking for the cause; the root of the evil.

Silence is compliance.


Perry Is So Very... (RETARDED)

Texas Faces Massive Wildfires, Record Drought as Gov. Rick Perry Denies Existence of Global Warming Texas Gov. Rick Perry was back on the campaign trail at last night’s Republican presidential debate, where he questioned the science behind human-caused global warming. On Wednesday, Perry announced he was returning home to focus on a historic wildfire season in which some 3.6 million acres have burned—an area larger than the size of Connecticut. Perry has used the crisis to complain the federal government is not acting fast enough to assist firefighters, but critics have been quick to note the governor has slashed the budget for the Texas Forest Service, the first line of fire defense for most of the state. The wildfires come amidst a record drought. The state has seen its driest consecutive months since record keeping began in 1895, and the impact on the state’s agricultural industry has been devastating. We speak with Forrest Wilder, reporter with The Texas Observer. His latest article on this is "Texas’ Permanent Drought: Our Water Deficit Didn’t Start with this Drought. And It Won’t End with this Drought.

You've got to be a complete, fucking moron to not grasp and understand the catastrophic consequences of human mass pollution.
