What the hell do you mean there is no Seperation of Church and State?

I was just watching Hardball and some dumb bitch claimed there is no seperation of church and state. Both Chris Matthews and the other guest then claimed there was, so the dumb bitch said "I'll give you 1 million dollars if you can find the words seperation of church and state in the constitution". Of course she said this knowing that the EXACT phrase of "Seperation of Church and State" isn't in the Constitution but what she obviously doesn't know is that it is CLEARLY implied. Anyone who actually READS the first amendment can see that there is a COMPLETE seperation of Church and State.

The first amendment reads...

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Notice the FIRST WORDS on this amendment. It states : "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion." That means there shouldn't be ANY law that respects ANY establishment of religion. Many argue that this means only that there should be no state religion, unfortunately for them, they are wrong.

If that is what the founding fathers meant then they would have wrote "no law respecting THE establishment of A religion." It does not say that however, and thus clearly the word "establishment" is synonomous with the word "institution". Therefore the amendment means: "Congress shall make no law respecting an institution of religion" That means, not one single law that derives from a religious institution.

Democrats and Republicans both suck

I'm so sick of all this bullshit. Fuck the Democrats, fuck the republicans, FuCK all you. I am so angry right now. Both parties FUCKING SUCK. Any one who belongs to either party is a mindless fucking sheep.

You are all worthless, nothing but tools! Blind fucking tools.

I'm so sick and tired of it ALLLLLLLLLLL...

Slipknot - Eyeless

Insane - Am I the only motherfucker with a brain?
I'm hearing voices but all they do is complain
How many times have you wanted to kill
Everything and everyone - Say you'll do it but never will

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

I am my Father's son
cuz he's a phantom, a mystery and that leaves me
Nothing!
How many times have you wanted to die?
It's too late for me, all you have to do is get rid of me!

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

It's all in your head
It's all in my head
It's all in your head

I tried - You lied to me for so long
Everywhere I go, there's a sense of it
Freak on my antics and give me a choice
Doesn't matter if I give a shit
It's shit that you gave me

You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes
You can't see California without Marlon Brando's eyes

It's all in your head
It's all in my head
It's all in your head

Do you wanna feel pain?
Taking my name in vain; caring never felt so lame inside
Anybody else got pride? Do you wanna take my life?
Maybe I'll reverse my ride
Who the hell are you? Fuck you!
Better suck it up cause you bled through
Better get away from me
Stay the fuck away from me!

I feel safe - Seems your saved

Look me in my brand new eye

Mother Fucker

Look me in my brand new eye

Look me in my brand new

Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Delay

Well it is no surprise to me that my first story is about the Republican Party's ethics and their subsequent hypocrisy. That is not to say that hypocrisy is a stranger to the Democrats, because I know it isn't. However, the hypocrisy of the Republican Party is becoming quite rampant these days to say the least. Hell, the hypocrisy and ethics of the Republican Party are what make me hate the Republicans and only dislike the Democrats.

Let me start of by saying I can't stand House Majority Leader, Tom Delay (R-Texas). He is quite possibily the politician I hate the most (yes, even more than Asscroft). He is extremely unethical and a religious extremist. However I don't let my biased influence my objectivity, so here goes...

Apparently, after aftering being admonished three different times in one week--back in October--Delay is now being indicted for a felony.

And apparently there is rule within the Republican Party which states that any top party leader must step aside when he or she is indicted for a felony. The Republican party made this rule, back in 1993, when they were the minority party trying to end 4 decades of a Democrat controlled House. The Republicans claimed that they held themselves to higher standards than prominent Democrats, such the then-Ways and Means Chairman Dan Rostenkowski, who eventually pleaded guilty to mail fraud and was sentenced to prison.

Now take a wild guess at what the Republican Party wants to do? They want to change the rule, so that Delay won't have to step down. Why am I not surprised?

It seems the Republicans only want to be held to "higher standards" when they don't break those standards anyways.

Of course Delay and the Republican Party call the indictment "politically motivated", thus that is why they need to change the rule. Now, in Delay's defense (ugh it disturbs me to even say that), he and the Republicans might have a point. The attorney who has charge Delay is named Ronnie Earle. Ronnie Earle, an elected Democrat, brought charges against Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison ten years ago, but then quickly dropped them before they went to court. So these charges might be politically motivated.

However, I wouldn't take Delay and the Republican Party's word for it. Afterall, Delay and his party claimed that all of his admonishments back in October were also politically motivated by the Democrats. The thing is, the committee that admonished Delay those 3 times was bipartisan. The committee consisted of 5 Democrats AND 5 Republicans. The vote was unanimous to admonish Delay all 3 times. So Delay and the Republican's reasoning on his admonishments is clearly bullshit. If anything Delay probably got off easy since the ruling had to be a majority and the committee consisted of half of his party members. This leaves Delay and the Republicans with little crediblity on this matter.

Oh and by the way, the 3 colleagues of Delay that were indicted with these charges have all been recently convicted.

One can only hope Delay suffers the same fate.

Me: "Hey Everybody!" -- You: "Hi, Dr. Disenfranchised Voter!"

Ok, so I'm not really a doctor, but I felt it was a nice touch.

Welcome to my blog. My name is not important, as I plan on speaking for more than just myself. I will tell you a little bit about myself though.

I am a 20 year old college student. I am an ex-christian and am now agnostic. I consider myself mostly a libertarian, but I am more liberal than most libertarians I know. I am a registered independent voter since I find it silly to basically pledge yourself to a specific party since people change and parties change. A perfect example would how the Neo-Cons have hijacked the Republican Party. Anyways, I have no job (at the moment) and I'm still pissed off about the past election. I think the best way to sum my feelings about the election would be the Daily Mirror's headline: "How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?".

The sad thing is, I know why they can be so dumb. Bush's campaign was nothing but a terrorist campaign.

Now bear with me and let me explain what I mean since I've probably already turned off some readers with that comment.

Bush ran on nothing but fear. The main theme of the campaing was 9/11, 9/11, 9/11. His campaign also said many ridiculous things such as, that if John Kerry was elected were would be attack by the terrorists, that if John Kerry was elected the bible would be banned (which might not actually be that bad of an idea in retrospect, heh jk), and that Kerry would legalize gay marriage.

The dictionary defines a terrorist as someone who uses terror for political or financial gain. I think it is pretty clear to see that Bush used terror for both political and financial gain.

One thing this election has taught me is this, "If you vote for the lesser of two evils, you are still voting for evil". I voted for John Kerry and I don't regret it. However I don't think I'll be voting for the lesser of two evils again.

Anyhoo, welcome to The Disenfranchised Voter. Enjoy your stay.
