Sad Panda

I’ve been a bit disturbed the last few weeks as I flip through the news. It makes me want to crawl back into a hole and ignore the modern world, focusing on technology for work and fiction for fun. After the amazing run of news in the Zimmerman/Martin tragedy, with no shortage of hate filled comments to articles, themselves often shoddily written to garner attention, these are a few articles I see in the headlines today.

Anti-Evolution ‘Monkey Bill’ Poised To Become Law In Tennessee - Personally I think that creationism isn’t worth teaching in school. If you believe it, fine, I certainly can’t prove you wrong, but it’s a secular belief, not science. If you’d like your kids to know about it, teach it in a secular setting, not a public education place. For what it’s worth, the article obviously is looking to denigrate those that believe in creationism. There’s no reason to slant like that.


Author Revives 'Birther' Theory in Morristown

Seriously? I’m always surprised that people believe this, including my diesel mechanic and a few other people. I look at it this way. Even if Obama isn’t a citizen, the GOP has had four years (the last election cycle to now) to prove this and they have gotten nowhere. So maybe they’re the incompetent ones.

If you really believe this, then ask yourself this. Wouldn’t someone have come forward? Wouldn’t someone in the Hawaiian government who is a conservative dug up evidence? Do you really think that this could remain a secret?

Tea Party Introduces ‘Wacky’ And ‘Ludicrous’ Conspiracy Bill To Shut Down Arizona Energy Efficiency Programs

How do we elect people that are so friggin whacko? Are we that shallow that we listen to a few sound bites or or vote along party lines because we think electing someone from the red (if you’re blue) or someone blue (if you’re red) will destroy the country? Even if you agree with them? I’d like to think this is a joke and this State Senator doesn’t really believe the UN is plotting to make this entire world one country, or that it could. I guess if she still doesn’t believe POTUS is a natural US citizen she might believe that.

Mine Union President Compares Fate Of Coal Industry To Osama Bin Laden’s Death

Perfect example of a union guy that should be terminated. Sensationalism and nonsense.

At least I saw one well written piece:
