Link roundup for 3 October 2010

I can well believe that inflation is "almost nonexistent" in France, but not this.

Actual witches have a few words for Christine O'Donnell.

Sometimes a picture says it better.

Tyler Clementi is the latest victim of technological bullying. At least charges have been filed

NOM lies about the effects of gay marriage in Massachusetts.

We've all seen that recent report that atheists know more about religion than religious people do. PZ Myers slaps down one religionist who tries to trivialize the facts.

Those teabagger-supported candidates who keep talking about "liberty" oppose the right to abortion even for rape victims. More here (found via Republic of Gilead).

Religious totalitarians' demands for "respect" are a ploy to attack freedom of expression (found via Disaffected).

Silent Witness Peacekeepers fend off the bleating fanatics, with colorful umbrellas.

Teabaggers who turn the Constitution into an idol are misusing it for purposes for which it was not intended.

"Angry" voters won't decide the election.

Meg Whitman's hiring -- and abuse -- of an illegal alien comes back to haunt her.

A high official in Michigan is unmasked as a weird, obsessive hater. More here.

Politics Plus draws a lesson from the One Nation rally.

Go ahead, show us the proof.

It's the time of year to go out and harass women.

NOM has launched a bizarre, ill-planned effort to preach its anti- gay message to California Hispanics. Latest reports here, here, here, and here; weird logic here.

PZ Myers purges his home of the taint of evil.

Germany's recent history teaches an important lesson: the health of the economy must take precedence over deficit reduction.

Ahmadinejad's speech at the UN drew widespread opposition.

An appeals court has ruled to stop ancient superstitions and taboos from interfering with federal funding of embryonic stem- cell research, at least until the next step in the legal fight.

This looks like an attempt to find a common language between two species -- neither of which is human.

[A shorter list than usual, I'm afraid. Last week I spent much less time on the internet than usual.]

Actually Guy ... I was laughing up at the posting of "Evil Slutopia" (that would be an excellent name for a band!) ... but about the ranting from Wiccan's/ Pagan's concerning satanic altar's and so forth!, out of O'Donnell. I mean ... this kid (O'Donnell)was probably stoned and wouldnt know a goddamn satanic altar from a masonic altar, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh :) .... why did I know that was coming? :) I just figured that someone was going to pick up on that and their panties would get in a bind over it. :)

and their panties would get in a bind

O'Donnell would never allow that to happen. Who knows where it might lead.....
