40,000 laws under the books

DO YOU LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY? 40,000 new laws were passed in 2011. Another gift from your benevolent government "protecting" you.

Armed Chinese Troops in Texas!

TURN THE TABLES, WORK FOR PEACE AND PROSPERITY. What if America was occupied by a foreign military power? What should you do about it? And what should the people of the occupying country do...? A valuable thought exercise.

Jesus was way cool

"Jesus Was Way Cool" by King Missile

Jesus was way cool
Everybody liked Jesus
Everybody wanted to hang out with him
Anything he wanted to do, he did
He turned water into wine
And if he wanted to
He could have turned wheat into marijuana
Or sugar into cocaine
Or vitamin pills into amphetamines

He walked on the water
And swam on the land
He would tell these stories
And people would listen
He was really cool

If you were blind or lame
You just went to Jesus
And he would put his hands on you
And you would be healed
That's so cool

He could've played guitar better than Hendrix
He could've told the future
He could've baked the most delicious cake in the world
He could've scored more goals than Wayne Gretzky
He could've danced better than Baryshnikov
Jesus could have been funnier than any comedian you can think of
Jesus was way cool

He told people to eat his body and drink his blood
That's so cool
Jesus was so cool
But then some people got jealous of how cool he was
So they killed him
But then he rose from the dead
He rose from the dead, danced around
Then went up to heaven
I mean, that's so cool
Jesus was way cool

No wonder there are so many Christians

Bradley Manning: Almost Gone

A companion video for "Almost Gone" - a new song by legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash and musician James Raymond (son of David Crosby) - is being released today in support of accused U.S. Army whistleblower Bradley Manning.  The release is timed to Manning's first judicial hearing scheduled for December 16th, following more than 17-months in custody, including a year in solitary confinement that Amnesty International has characterized as "harsh and punitive."

Bad Lip-Reading: "Ron Paul"

First of all, I LOVE the Bad Lip-Reading video series... this one is especially endearing.  Based on his tremendous insight here, I like this Ron Paul almost as much as the real one. Unfortunately, most politicians sound this crazy WITHOUT being lip-read badly.

Rape a Virgin, Get a Wife

Deuteronomy 22:28-29: "If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels* of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives."

 *about 20 ounces of silver or about $300
