Shut up, Godwin!

Don't be shy, Jeff, tell us what you really think.
I'm not calling Ben Stein a Nazi. All I'm saying is: had he had the opportunity, he would have been a wholehearted Nazi supporter.

Dorchen makes a important point:
Just because George W. Bush won't be in office next year doesn't mean we've dodged the bullet of a white Christian supremacist dictatorship. We are not out of the woods yet, my darlings.
Anyone who thinks that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats intent on establishing equal rights for members of all phyla, not just chordata, will stop or even slow the theocrats and Republicans intent on transforming the United States to a third-world middle-class-free wage-slavery economy is on more drugs than even this hedonist and libertine can endorse.


  1. Guess I should introduce myself. I’ve been lurking around here for a couple of months now. I’m new at being an atheist, so I really appreciate your ability to strip a subject of the usual dreck. I love it when you come out and “nail” some subject with quintessential perspicacity and candor. Thanks and kudos.

    Thanks also for introducing me to some other amazing minds - Jeff Dorchen today. I don’t know how I have missed him, thus far. Through your recommendations, I have been reading a number of remarkable sites. I particularly love the Digital Cuttlefish’s brilliant verse.

    Anyway, thought I should ‘fess up to being a lurker here, albeit an admiring one.

  2. Welcome to the club! And thank you for the kind words.

    The Internet Infidels Discussion Board is a good place for newly "out" atheists.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
