Fuck Your God

"Hey, you have your religion in my politics" "Hey, you have your politics in my religion" Two tastes that could be great, just NOT together. Let's discuss how religious zealots are ruining the spirit of the United States and trampling your rights for the sake of their own god.

"Chuck" currently resides in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. While he finds organized religion and their fanatics to be morally bankrupt and power hungry he also believes in the Constitution and our Bill of Rights which allow all of us to believe in any god we choose and the ability to worship in any manner our selves feel to be correct and good and right. So long as we respect others' rights to do so as well. The latter concept being foreign to most religious folk.

Six Degrees of Separation

The governor of Illinois was arrested today by federal authorities in what is being said as an investigation into his attempt to "sell" president-elect Obama's senate seat. It is coming as quite a shock to many of us in this state known for extreme corruption through all branches of government. We already have a governor in prison. We have federal probes investigating Chicago city government, as well. It seems to go on and on and on. It's amazing how deep it runs and how common an occurance it is in this state. I've not heard any specifics about our soon-to-be but it is only a matter of time. You don't grow up in Illinois politics and come out uncorrupt. And I don't care how much Obama will deny it in the next four years, I won't believe him. Not only is he from Illinois he is from Chicago. It rubs off. Let's see what eventually comes out in the wash. My mom had a proverb for us when we were growing up; Be sure your sins will always find you out. In time.
