This Date in History

James Dean died in a car crash at the age of 25. Ironically in this tv spot done while promoting his then upcoming movie “Rebel With Out a Cause” (1956), he warns about the hazards of the road and that “the life you save could be mine”.



Am I the Only One Who Finds it Ironic that a Guy From a Show Called "Growing Pains" is Railing Against the Theory of Evolution?

Nearly a century and a half after the publication of Charles Darwin’s ‘The Origin of Species’, the debate over evolution goes on with no end in sight.

Now former Growing Pains star turned ubber evangelical Christian Kirk Cameron is promoting an effort to give away free copies of the book, but with a 50 page introduction that lays out the creationist theory, as well as allegations that Hitler liked Darwin, Darwin was racist, and hated women. Now the video of one Romanian woman is making the rounds as she rebuts Cameron’s claims that American is under assault by atheists.

Obama Captures Newt Gingrich’s Mind

Well its happened.President Obama has given his national speech that has been shown in classrooms throughout the country. A number of parents (most whom probably didn’t vote for him and have a rabid loathing of anything to do with Obama) have objected, and a number of schools aren’t showing the speech. But already it seems to have borne the fruit of socialism, thanks to the hypnotic power of Obama. Former Congressman, Club for Growth President, and Pennsylvania Senatorial candidate Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has previously accused Obama of starting a dictatorship, has been brainwashed. His message? Stay in school!

Perhaps Toomey and Gingrich and other conservatives with at least a scintilla of reason, intellect, or political acumen realize just how stupid the rest of their peers sound. Back in the 1960s it was the conservative elements of America that voiced the most outrage about the message of “Turn on, tune in, and drop out”. Now it appears that the post rational message of many conservatives seems to be that only commies stay in school.


Barney Frank Slams back Health Care Protester

As always Frank (D-MA, 6) is animated and lively in his response to the Obama is Hitler nonsense from a questioner who called Obama’s plan a “Nazi policy” at a Dartmouth town hall. According to Ben Smith (via the neoconservative “weekly Standard”) the questioner may actually be a Lyndon Larouche supporter, the general of a group of rabble rousing conspiracy theorists. Props to Barney Frank on this one, whatever you may think of his conduct on the financial crisis.
