O'Bummer In Chief

Buona sera. Mentally challenged (you're not allowed to say "retarded" any longer) Obama zombies still insist that B. Hussein Obama is a wonderful president and doing a great job. Personally, I suspect that it's their own egos that keep his approval rating above zero, because these ideologues refuse to admit that they were horribly wrong by putting him in office. Well, that and the greedy, lazy clowns in the "occupy" bowel movement who think that they deserve everyone else's money and property; they will pretend that O'Bummer is a good president.

So, let's do a quick check-in and see what the Occupy the White House mascot is doing lately.

The Obama administration does not want to allow Franklin D. Roosevelt's D-Day prayer added to the World War II memorial in Washington, DC. Ironically, FDR was a Democrat (whose disastrous policies extended the Great Depression by seven years), and it's Conservatives and Republicans that object to Roosevelt's prayer being removed. You can read about Obama's opposition to the prayer here.

It looks like the Christmas Tree Tax is put on hold, or scrapped altogether. But the fact that this glorified community organizer was willing to put a tax, even a small one, on Christmas tress is amazing. Notice, however, that it was a "Christmas Tree Tax", and not a "Holiday Tree Tax". Even though maniacs affirming political correctness say "holiday trees", we all know what holiday these trees are about, capice? The wording is just strange to me, is all. Sort of like targeting those of us who believe in Christmas. I heard someone on the radio say that it was like a dhimmi tax under Islamic rule. Is that the case, B. Hussein Obama?

Frenchie Sarkozy and Comrade Obama were trashing Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Classy national leaders, are they not? (They act like Dawkinsites.) I really don't know how anyone can respect either of those punks. Netanyahu deserves far better treatment.

The Religion of Atheism

In many practical aspects, atheism is a religion.

"How can you say that, Cowboy Bob? Atheism is a lack of belief in gods".

Yeah, sure. That's the cop-out redefinition, not the real definition. Except not all atheists got the memo, and some are confused.

As I was saying, in many practical aspects, atheism is a religion. It is a philosophy of life and conduct, and has many of the trappings of organized religion. Although atheists will tell you that they believe in "reason", they actually have a religion that is based on faith. A lot of it. I can't go there, Girlfriend.
Can't help it, I like this picture. Very appropriate.

Yes, atheism is a kind of religious cult. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, thinks like a duck... Capice?
Not only is this obnoxious and arrogant, atheism is not the fastest growing religion in the world.
OK, my observations are now concluded. It's time for even better stuff:
Atheism is the belief that there is no god. According to the Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy:
“Atheism is the position that affirms the non-existence of God. It proposes positive belief rather than mere suspension of disbelief.”
Buddhism is atheistic in the sense of denying that there is any overarching deity such as the Creator-God of the Bible. Atheism in the western sense excludes Buddhism, and adherents claim that it is not a religion. One Atheist said:
“Calling Atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair colour”
However, atheists make such claims so Atheism can avoid legal imperatives placed on religions in many countries, and can avoid some of the ideological hang-ups people have about “religion”. It also creates a false dichotomy between science (which they claim must be naturalistic and secular) and religion.
Atheism will be defined in the contemporary western sense: not just the lack of belief in a god, but the assertion about the non-existence of any gods, spirits, or divine or supernatural beings. Atheists in this sense are metaphysical naturalists, and as will be shown, they DO follow a religion.
