About Joseph8th

I am not a very nice liberal. I am very intolerant... of intolerance. I have little patience for public displays of religious belief, and zero tolerance for the insertion of religious belief into public policy. Believers are all bigots and bullies, until they prove themselves otherwise. Put another way: everyone starts at the bottom in my book, and has to climb their way out of the hole of my disrespect. Some people can do this in about 30 seconds. Some people just dig themselves in deeper. In short, I am a misanthrope, an atheist, and by god I am a patriot. My family came over on the Mayflower, and my grandma was an Adams, directly descended from a couple of U.S. presidents. This is the America I grew up in, and this is how my parents -- beatniks both -- raised me to act. Defend the underdog. Bully the bullies. Be rigidly intolerant of all intolerance. When you have to fight the political fight, make your own rules. The rest of the time, enjoy the beautiful country and soak up its diversity of cultures. Learn from everything, and don't be afraid to teach what you learn. Hah!

Signature Line

Nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in the United States is closely connected with this. --Einstein
