Happy Lent

According to a Gallop Poll, 79 percent of Americans polled believed the Earth revolved around the Sun. Only 79 PERCENT!!!! This has only been proven true for just about 400 YEARS!!!!! Are Americans that dumb? Or are these are the Americans who are not taught by a Science book, but some 'OTHER' book? Are these the ones who vote for wacko's like G. W. Bush just because he believes in the same superstitions as yourself? Even though his policies go against the very nature of that 'OTHER' book.

I know some of you are saying, "But J Ho, not all those people are religious believers, some might just be not smart enough to know the answer." Exactly!! Some (a very small number) are the moronically stupid who never learned anything, but what does that have to say about the majority of that percentage who believe it because a 2000 year old book says so?

Are these the same wacko's who immediately vote for 'Huckleberry' Huckabee just because he is a Southern Baptist Minister? Imagine if he ends up in a position of power in Washington: Mike Huckabee, Secretary of Education, "Today class, we are gonna learn how to handle snakes. Get out you Bible's and turn to Mark 16:17-18. It says,
'And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.'

Now, class, turn to Luke 10:19 and repeat after me,
'Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.'"

I am so depressed 21 percent of America can actually believe some of this bullshit. If the 'OTHER' book is true throughout, then the Sun revolves around the Earth, the Earth is 8,000 years old, and handling poisonous snakes will make you invincible. Now I am no lawyer, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express one night, but the definition of credibility is "capable of being believed; believable" As in a credible statement. Well, those three truths above are not true, thus the credibility of the 'OTHER' book is very low in my book.

21 percent of America. That's a big number. The number is growing every day. Those freaks have like 6 children a piece (and they are all home-schooled with Bible study and a little truth speckled in there to pass the state's requirements). 21 percent. That is a big enough percentage to elect a President (McCain) who says we might be in Iraq for '100 years'. And elected a President who started his holy war to begin with. 21 percent. Staunch right wing ultra conservatives who will not deviate from their positions who will vote for anyone who is old, rich, white, republican, church goer, flag wearin', NASCAR watchin', god fearin' male, no matter what his policy really is. No matter how corrupt this person is, as long as Rush Limbaugh likes him and he is seen going to church on Sunday and he makes reference to Intelligent Design being equal with EVOLUTION, they get the vote.

Meanwhile, Hillary and Obama are fighting for control of the Democratic Party. Both are about tied in the number of delegates each have and the decision for the Party's Nomination won't be decided until maybe the Democratic Convention. This could split the Party in two, and the bickering and warring factions and a possible third party candidate could break the Democratic Party in sections: with no-one having a majority of the population's consent. That's where that 21 percent comes in. They are like a rock. They don't change. Sure, Huckabee is pretty much out of it and McCain likely has the Republican Nomination, but that 21 percent is gonna vote for the Republican all the time because that is what the preachers say to vote for, that is what Fox NEWS says to vote for, that is what talk radio will start saying to vote for (once it is decided McCain can't be beat). That, along with some of the other 79 percent, will probably put McCain in the White House. Get ready for many more Lent's in Iraq.
