I can't believe Obama will talk to those creeps. There's reaching out, then there's sticking your arm down a sewer.

In conjunction with the invitation to Rick Warren at the Inauguration, it's a disturbing pattern. Can one entirely rule out the possibility that Obama is actually a bigot?

Darwin Day !!? .... I love it! And rightfully so for that matter. I mean we have day's honoring fictional storybook character's who are nothing but a myth. Darwin gave the globe a "vision and theory" that benefited the species, of all nation's (or at least those who would accept it).

President Obama "reaching out" .... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, that one was a great laugh, I have alway's said as far as reaching out and sitting down and talking, he was alot like me. I have sat with just about all that is considered scum of society, from serial killer's to neo-nazi's/ skinhead's ... and just about everything in between .... I reckon it's part of my informal self styled education since I only went to 8th grade, the rest came from the street's. :) And yes, I have put my arm in some sewer's, even my pecker for that matter! :) Actually ... this is one of the thing's I liked about Obama, I better shut up. :)

Thanx ....... :)

I left an earlier comment, but it apparently didn’t publish. Google was not accepting my password, but I finally got it to work by going to Blogger and signing in. I spent a lot of time today researching “The Family.” Read reviews of the book on Amazon and will try to get it from Talking Books Services. Post successful: I learned something. Thanks, BJ P.S. Is it possible for homo sapiens to unevolve? I’m seeing a trend. Lots of knuckle-dragging on the right.

This is so disappointing and discouraging. I suppose I kind of understand this in a kind of "keep your friends close and your enemies closer", and one of President Obama's heroes is Lincoln, who was well-known for appointing advisors who were not necessarily on his side, rather than a bunch of yes men. So ... maybe I'm making excuses for him?

But I did like the candor and general ballsiness of his confrontation with the Republicans, so maybe we can hope he'll someday do something similar with this bunch?

Sigh. One hopes.

We (in Australia) have an entire city named after Darwin, the capital of our Northern Territory.

RC: Considering some of the worthless royal parasites that some of our states are named after, I would think Darwin merits at least a continent.

BJ: Sorry to hear that. I certainly haven't rejected any comment of yours, so it must have been a Google or internet glitch.

I think it's a fact that there is no known case on record of natural selection reducing the intelligence of a species. But there are plenty of cases of humans deciding not to use their intelligence. Rational thinking is hard work.

GL: I hope you're right. Some real movement on DADT would be a good sign. But I do wonder if it's possible that Obama is actually prejudiced against gays, or at least has the kind of blind spot that makes the murderous ideology of groups like "The Family" seem acceptable in a way that the KKK wouldn't.

Magpie: I've seen that -- I've had an interest in maps since I was a kid. Have any of your local fundies ever tried to get the name changed? (In California there's a mountain called Mount Diablo, and some religious nutter there has been trying to get the name changed for years.)

Checking the atlas, I found a town of Darwin in Argentina and a Darwin Bay in Chile, and there is a volcano and an islet in the Galapagos named for him -- but nothing in the US:-(

In answer to your question Infidel, no-one has tried to change the name that I am aware. When they occur, name changes tend to be in favour of the pre-settlement Aboriginal name.

Religious cults do exist in Australia, but fundamentalism is not a political force of any note.

On Darwin Day, an appropriate activity is contemplating the missing link. Watch a teabagger. :-)

On the prayer breakfast, I thought he should not go, but am pleased that he had the integrity to confront the while there.
