Liberal media bias?

What liberal media bias? A study confirms what we’ve known for a long time, that conservatives dominate the Sunday morning news shows.

Conservative members of the current Congress have appeared more often on the network talk shows than their liberal counterparts. Senators and representatives from the conservative end of the ideological spectrum have made 57 percent of the appearances, compared with 42 percent for liberals, according to an Upshot analysis of data collected by American University.

Sean Hannity beaten as a child? That explains SO much.

Hannity belt

Sean Hannity claims he was beaten as a child, hit regularly with a strap, and once was even punched in the face.

That would explain SO much about his spiteful authoritarianism.

ISIL bans math, social studies and evolution

ISIS

What life is like when church and state holds hands. It sounds a little like the demands right wing Christians make of school boards.

(CNN) — In swaths of Syria now controlled by ISIS, children can no longer study math or social studies. Sports are out of the question. And students will be banned from learning about elections and democracy.

Instead, they’ll be subjected to the teachings of the radical Islamist group. And any teacher who dares to break the rules “will be punished.”

[…] Educators cannot teach nationalistic and ethnic ideology and must instead teach “the belonging to Islam … and to denounce infidelity and infidels.”

Books cannot include any reference to evolution. And teachers must say that the laws of physics and chemistry “are due to Allah’s rules and laws.”

The letter ends with a firm warning:

“This is an obligatory announcement, and all violators will be punished.”

Another Ferguson?

Darrien Hunt

Last week, cops shot and killed a black man they claimed had “lunged” at them with a Samurai sword.

That story was blown out of the water when the autopsy determined 22-year-old Darrien Hunt was shot to death in the back in the incident last Wednesday in Saratoga Springs, Utah.

Other reports are surfacing that Hunt had a toy sword, not a real Samurai sword.

Not surprisingly, the authorities are changing their story.

Our rights come from God?

Saying our rights come from God only puts our rights in the hands of those who claim to speak for God.

Jack Kingston explains the complete Republican obstruction game

GOP rep Jack Kingston lays out the Republican game plan, not just for ISIS, but for ANYTHING Obama does: “… Republicans don’t want to change anything. We like the path we’re on now. We can denounce it if it goes bad, and praise it if it goes well and ask what took him so long.”

In other words, no matter what Obama does, attack him for it.

Science and religion can’t live together

A new study shows that not only are science and religion incompatible, science is leaving religious areas behind.

“Places with higher levels of religiosity have lower rates of scientific and technical innovation, as measured by patents per capita,” said Roland Bénabou, the study’s lead author.
