Link round-up for 14 February 2016

Why do fundies find separation of church and state so hard to understand?

"And of course it didn't hurt that they were white."

Trump has finally done something unacceptable -- he's told the truth.

Interesting little piece about the new military "freethought" group. It reminds me of a couple of books I've read by journalists embedded with the US military (War by Sebastian Junger, and Generation Kill by Evan Wright), who got to know quite a few "atheists in foxholes" there.

Re the piece about Ted Nugent, I'm glad that, despite being a fan of hard rock and heavy metal, I've never really gotten into that guy's music. Another guy in the above genres who's become notorious for saying batshit insane things is Megadeth's Dave Mustaine. Oddly enough, I've heard that, when it comes to the actual music side of things, he's a really cool guy; it's just that he unfortunately also believes in a lot of really nutty shit (he's a big fan of Alex Jones, which probably explains a lot).

Zosimus: Unfortunately being a musician is no guarantee of being decent or even sane. Nugent has long been neither.

Woody: It's working now. Websites often temporarily go down for various reasons. I'm concerned about Fair and Unbalanced, though -- it seems to have been "stuck" for about a month now.

Woody -- not sure what happened to your question -- it seemed to vanish when I posted the reply.

I wonder if Trump will bring up Bickle at the next debate? A good strategy from his point of view.

Blurber: Wouldn't be surprised. He seems to be in a state of all-out war with Cruz at the moment.
