Thinking Like This Means Going Nowhere Fast

This is why beliefs, like assumptions, are so worthless:
Raising taxes is bad for the economy, and Americans don't resent the affluent. These are simple truths, even obvious ones, and yet they are controversial. In particular, President Obama doesn't believe them.
We think the operative phrase here is "take the long way home."


  1. But Mr Emcee,

    Isn't your atheism a belief?

    Enjoy your blog, and do you find all the er, interesting(!?) pictures by yourself, or do you accept suggestions?


  2. But Mr Emcee,

    Isn't your atheism a belief?

    No, atheism is just the natural state of being:

    Pray to God - he don't show up. Dare him (or ask him) to strike you down - he don't show up.

    No belief required.

    Now, as far as my atheism - which is even hard for some atheist's to grasp - I abandon the concept of belief altogether. I don't believe in believing. In other words, just as to assume makes an "ass" out of "u" and "me", believing in shit is just as bad an idea.

    Thanks for writing.

  3. Oh - I almost forgot:

    Suggestions of any kind are always welcome.
