Star Wars as Religion

Having posted yesterday about Doctor Who as religion, I was struck when today Hemant Mehta shared this video, “Darth Vader is My Savior”: It does actually make a good point towards the end, as well as being amusing, and so it’s worth watching.

From Chicken to Pizza: Papa John’s, Obamacare, and the Intelligent Consumer

Obama Healthcare Bill (Not) Defeated

BLT shared this wonderful remake of a famous scene (when the media reported prematurely and incorrectly that “Dewey Defeats Truman”: It was inspired by this bit of misreporting, which Jim West shared a screenshot of on his blog: If you have been hiding under a rock somewhere and still don’t know what this is about, [Read More...]

Rick Santorum’s Educational Hypocrisy

Lots of people have mentioned Rick Santorum’s outrageous anti-education statement. He said, “It’s no wonder President Obama wants every kid to go college…the indoctrination that occurs in American universities is one of the keys to the left holding and maintaining power in America.
