Stop Brainwashing Children

(Editor's comment: Today's guest poster says our society is brainwashing our kids and proposes that atheism (in the form of antitheism) is the only reasonable position to hold to make the brainwashing stop. He further states that agnosticism is tacit support for religion.

A Madman Comes to Power (Part 3)

A guest post by Frank Zindler.During the Republican primaries and the general election campaign of 2016, Donald Trump’s outré behavior and comments caused many careful observers and analysts to notice that there was something particularly unusual in his public statements concerning Russia and its strongman Vladimir Putin. Trump never had anything but praise for Putin, and Putin was reciprocating in a very flattering way. Then it became apparent that Trump’s bucket list of “things to do” was i … [Read more...]

A Madman Comes to Power (Part 2)

A Madman Comes to Power

A Madman Comes to Power:  A guest post by Frank Zindler.It is the greatest Constitutional crisis our nation has faced since the Civil War. A madman is soon to enter the Oval Office.
