Here we go again!

I know that the health care debate in America is not exactly new, but I have, thus far, ignored it. I have ignored it to the benefit of my own mental health, in fact, because thinking about it sets me off, makes me angry. I'll get into more of this later, because I've recently seen red and the issue is now one that I am furious about. Again.

I watched a video of Bill Moyers Journal in which Bill Moyers interviews Wendell Potter, a former executive at CIGNA. The video can (and should) be watched here. In it, they discuss what is wrong with America's health care system and bring up several of the usual boogeymen, including "long lines" and "Socialism."

As I said, I'll discuss these things in later posts. For now, I just want to commemorate the time that I have spent not hating Republicans and conservatives. That time is over. Republicans are my enemy and "conservative" is, once again, pejorative. Game on, motherfuckers!

I am writing this post to all atheists who have a vested interest in debunking the myth of Jesus Christ. I am sorry if it bothers anyone that I am not continue the discussions that are going on your blog. Please contact me at the email address below and I promise I will never post on your blog again.

Here's what's up. A number of fundamentalist Christian blogs have come out swinging against a new book by Stephan Huller called the Real Messiah. The most recent being:

But there are many others. The only allies he seems to have on the web are a bunch of Jewish bloggers who like him because his mother was a Frankist (see wikipedia for more about this sect).

In any event Huller's book presents evidence that a two thousand year old throne in Venice proves that Jesus was not and never claimed to be the messiah.

Huller is going to appear on CNN in two weeks as part of his promotion of the book. As a big fan of his work I wanted to alert my fellow bloggers about this interview and have as many of us who have read the book to direct questions which challenge the existence of God and the whole Christian-fascist paradigm.

If you are interested in getting more information about his appearance please contact me at mastersonstuart@yahoo.com. If you haven't read the book here is a blog posting to familiarize yourself with his basic points when you do the phone in show:

Thanks again
