Sifting Around The Web 2
-Richard Reid: "I'll take a piña colada; oh, and infidel, don't forget to hold the rum, if you don't it's your head. Thanks." If you look closely on their uniforms it says "Club Gitmo". How suiting.
"In order to end the threat of future attacks and to delimit the life and scope of new police-state powers, we must therefore demand a war declaration, not further open-ended law-enforcement measures. Rather than worrying about how and when we place individual terrorists on trial, Congress must place regimes who support terrorists "on trial," declare them to be enemies of the United States, and demand their unconditional surrender as the objective of war. At this point the proceedings would be a mere formality: we are already in a de facto state of war with multiple regimes, so Congress has the duty to make it a speedy trial."
-There it is, plain and simple.
-My favorite statement by the reporter is: "The evangelicals are denying scientific evidence just to support Bronze Age myths."
-The pastor, Ted Haggard, goes on in the video to say that:
"You do understand that this issue right here of intellectual arrogance is the reason why people like you have a difficult problem with people of faith."-The real reason has nothing to do with arrogance. The real reason has everything to do with people denying truth, logic and reason and then substituting those essential concepts - that every human must live by - with faith and other irrational beliefs. Anton Thorn and Dawson Bethrick would both have a field day if they were in the shoes of University of Oxford professor Richard Dawkins. Which reminds me that he had a new book come out a week or too ago. I plan on buying it in the near future.
-Ted Haggard: "Get off of my land immediately." Who's acting arrogant now?
"The gift will go to establishing the BB&T Program in Capitalism, Markets and Morality. The program will offer undergraduate and graduate students from disciplines across UNCG the opportunity to examine the ethical and philosophical basis for free-market economies.-It's about time something is done to promote objective morality and capitalism on campuses across the United States. That reading room sounds awesome. BB&T is the shit.
The university is also creating the BB&T Distinguished Lecture Series in Capitalism, which will focus on ethical and core values in business. The BB&T Ayn Rand Reading Room will be established in the Jackson Library and will include Rand's fiction and nonfiction and works by other authors who support economic freedom."
