SCOTUS Pushes America One Step Closer Towards A Theocracy

The 5 political right-wing justices strike again dismantling our Democracy one section at a time, driving our Republic towards a theocracy.  Forgive them; they know not what 'THEY' (Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, Thomas and Scalia) do… thinkingblue

Colorado Pot Update (Surprise, Surprise)

It's time to bring sense into the world of pain and suffering... Big Pharma and its lobbies have had a grip on our collective consciousness for way to long. To those who perpetuate the defunct WAR ON DRUGS, I say, ‘Get Real’ there is No War on Drugs, oh there’s a war all right but it’s a war on who gets screwed and who does the screwing. As long as there’s $$$$ to be made by the Corporate Personhood ‘who’ (who instead of that because SCOTUS deemed them human people) controls the masses, Cannabis will continue to be known as something nefarious and destructive. (And you thought you were free... Yeah, FREE to pursue whatever Corporate Personhood decides for you.  thinkingblue

Are We Nothing But Guinea Pigs For Big Pharma Drug Testing?

It appears, according to TV commercials, that there is a Miracle Drug for everything, and I mean ANYTHING that ails you. Forget about the Snake Oil salesmen of the past, doctor's today don't have to use bells and whistles to sell Big Pharmacy Drugs, all they need is medical credentials, a prescription pad, millions of dollars spent on ads promoting pie-in-the-sky cures and a gullible populace that truly wishes to believe, good health is just a pill away! When are we going to grow up and realize, most professionals don't care about YOU, there’s just too many of YOU for them to feel honest compassion towards. Thus, YOU become just a dollar sign to them and to Big Pharma who keep filling bottles with pretty colored pills, not fully tested, until years down the road on the people who swallow them.

Another Big Thanks To NBC Nightly News!

To Be Or Not To Be Gay/Straight

A worthwhile reality read.
EXCERPT: I had known I was attracted to my own sex since I was 18. I came out as a senior in high school in Ohio and embraced my homosexuality. I found wide acceptance within my family, and I lived openly as a homosexual until the age of 24. But around that point in my life I found myself becoming very despondent, even suicidal. I attributed my unhappiness to my homosexuality. In reality, I was tremendously insecure, lonely and searching for an identity. I could no longer accept myself.
At the time I first began having those doubts, in the mid-1980s, I was attending Ohio State University, where the campus pastor introduced me to Christianity. I told him, “God can’t love me because I’m gay.” The pastor replied, in essence, that this wasn’t true, that God could love me, but he added that if I continued being gay, God would not be pleased with my life. I came to believe that homosexuality was something that God was against, and if I continued to embrace it, I would not be pleasing to Him.
No, wonder human beings do not make much sense, with the reliance on ineffectual religion.
Mentally troubled people seek advice from religious leaders who claim to know all there is about life (via a supernatural god); gushing forth  to those in desperate need for reality, subjective bible quotes that actually go against the teaching of Christianity (and others).
Common sense would simply suggest:  It takes love and tolerance to calm the troubled soul, which will eventually allow us all get along with one another. Not some god quote, made up by some opinionated Ahole...!  thinkingblue

I came across this Dear Amy newspaper clip some time ago. IMHO, it is the best explanation of what it would be like if you were forced to be other than what you were physically born to be. thinkingblue

There's Christianity and Then There's Phil Robertson

There's Christianity and Then There's
Phil Robertson

The other day while walking in a parking lot heading for a grocery chain, I saw in big bold letters on the back window of a pick-up truck these words: PHIL ROBERTSON FOR PRESIDENT. Not only does this crazy old coot have a religious following, he also has (apparently) convinced some of his admirers that he should politically lead our country.
Now I am aware that there are people who are limited in knowledge when it comes to the art of thinking or just don't have a clue as to what Critical Thought is all about but GOLLY GEE, Phil the Duck Robertson for President of the USA… That's one big barrel full of Bat Sh*t NUTS!
