Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Ranting and Raving...

I often disagree with what the Raving Atheist has to say, but today's edition is worth reading if only for the following comment on voter turnout:

The Squad also responds to mail about a less important matter: the national election. A reader is concerned that his family, consisting of Democrats and Republics, is being torn apart by politics. The Squad responds that God, like Dan Rather, is non-partisan, and “[i]t is our ability to take the best ideas from both parties and form them into a national consensus that constitutes the enduring vibrancy of our democracy.” So what are the “best ideas” that should be extracted, that the family should form a consensus on? They don’t say. In fact, all that matters is that you vote, and enter the voting booth barking like a moonbat:

We're happy you have this problem in your family. We prefer to see an excess rather than a dearth of political passion. Wouldn't you rather have a passionately informed, politically engaged family than one of the more than 150 million Americans who don't vote and don't care?

Actually, I’d prefer that the skin-heads stay home no matter how excitable they are.

Not to be missed.
