On this blog, I'm going to leave the CD's on the shelf and vent my frustrations with the current state of political affairs.
Our country has problems.
Our tax burden is worse than our founding fathers fought a revolution over.
Our Federal government has grown into a monstrosity that would make Paul Revere start riding again.
We're back...in the United States' Socialist Republic!

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
Those pussies at the American Civil Liberties Union are at it again!
A portrait of Jesus that had adorned a southern Ohio public school district building since 1947 has been taken down after officials decided they could not risk losing a lawsuit to the American Civil Liberties Union.
The superintendent of Jackson City Schools said that the decision was made after cowards at the district's insurance company declined to cover litigation expenses. A student club that the school says owns the portrait took it down Wednesday morning at his direction.
The ACLU and the Freedom from Religion Foundation had sued on behalf of a student and two parents, calling the portrait an unconstitutional promotion of religion in a public school.
An ACLU spokesman says the lawsuit remains in effect, but will be dropped if the portrait stays down.
The "Head of Christ," a popular depiction of Jesus, had been in an entranceway's "Hall of Honor" in a middle school building that was formerly a high school.
It was near portraits of dozens of prominent alumni and people with local roots such as the late four-term Ohio Gov. James Rhodes.
The portrait was moved recently by a Christian-based service club to the current high school building.
A complaint that triggered the February lawsuit put the 2,500-student district in the midst of the ongoing national debate over what religious-themed displays are permissible.
And so, once again, the ACLU screws it up for students, but manages to strike another blow for athiests everywhere.
What amazes me, is that if all these athiests are so sure of themselves, why is it that people of faith seem to threaten them so much?
It's almost as if they are afraid they may have it wrong...
As for the lame-ass student and his asshole parents?
Can you please get a frigging life?
I hope the other students in the school have a lapse of faith and kick the living shit out of you.
Then I think some rolls of toilet paper blanketing your parents' house may be in order.
What Jesus would do? Probably not.
The feeling I'd get if I read about it in the news? Priceless!
