THE SKEPTIC ARENA



This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

California rejected Trump by a whopping 2-1 margin (over 4 million votes).

Now it's payback time

California's own representatives (Republicans) sold out their own state;
and yet conservatives in California will probably reelect them.
In fact, they know the fools will reelect them - otherwise they wouldn't do it.

How can you help people who won't help themselves?
How is there any hope, when people are brainwashed to such a degree
that they will choose leaders who deliberately work against them?

Believe me, if I knew the answer, I would tell you in a heartbeat.

Republicans sell out Americans to big business ...

again

You didn't really need all that privacy stuff anyway, did you?
I think we can all agree that privacy is vastly overrated;
especially when it gets in the way of corporate profits.

Regarding parents who genitally mutilate their daughters;
this is what should be done to every single one of those bastards ...

10 years in prison followed by deportation.

Most countries on Earth have these laws, yet few enforce them.
It's time that children's rights were given priority over
the rights of their parents to be ignorant dumb fucks.

Trump responds to the crushing defeat of Trumpcare (11:35)



In every other sentence, Trump tried to blame Democrats.
Why in the world would any Democrat vote to remove their OWN health plan?

In every other sentence, Trump groveled and praised the Republicans,
who were responsible for making him fail his greatest campaign promise.

Republicans control all branches of government.
Trying to blame the party with no power is pathetic,
but licking the asses of the Tea Party caucus who destroyed him,
shows America who is really in control ... and it ain't Trump.

For those of you who refuse to acknowledge that Republicans kill Americans
for no other reason than profit and power,
maybe this article will give you an idea of the kind of people

who now control all branches of our government

If that article didn't pull on your heartstrings
then you are probably a Republican.
Just take a close look at which organizations are on which side of the issue
and it looks like a good guys vs. bad guys action movie.

Killing is what they do. People ... animals ... it doesn't matter.
As long as there is money in it ... they're interested.

Here's Trump ...

Draining The Swamp

As American voters are finding out
Trump is draining the swamp of snakes

Keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

I sent the following email to dozens of Conservative Christians:

"In Exodus, your God bragged about murdering countless innocent Egyptian babies.
Then He created a holiday (Passover) to celebrate the slaughter of these babies.
My question isn't about Him though. My question is about you ...
Why would any moral human being worship such a hideous murdering beast?

And a follow-up question:

Since you do - how could you be considered anything other than monsters yourselves? 
"

For some odd reason, not one of them was willing to stand up and defend his God.

The powerful NRA flexes its political muscles

and more people are going to die

That's what the Plutocracy does - it kills Americans for profit.
Whether through military, medical, or legal means
they'll use every weapon at their disposal
to transfer wealth from you to them ...

even if it requires killing you

The Republicans (working for the Plutocracy)
didn't just take over the Federal government,
they have also taken control of most state governments.
At the state level, local bullies turn their states into a living Hell for the people;
who then obediently reelect them to their positions.

Here is a classic example of people trying to defend themselves
and clean up the corruption in their government ...

only to be thwarted by their elected representatives

No matter how clear Republicans make it, that they are working only for the rich,
the ignorant masses have been trained to remain loyal and take their beatings.

If you see the similarity with domestic abuse victims ... congratulations

Now that Conservative Christians
have taken over control of the U.S. government,
one of the first things they are doing is ...

shredding the Constitution

The "Christian Nation" they've worked so hard to create
may finally be coming into view.

Stand by America.
Conservative Christians now control our government.

That means we're headin' back to the Middle Ages

Did you catch the phrase Federal Tyranny ?
I believe they used that same phrase when their slaves were taken away.

This Congressman masterfully exposes the hypocrisy of Republicans (3:30):



Republican hypocrisy exposed for the millionth time;
and for the millionth time ... Conservatives don't care.
No matter how many times we expose the hypocrisy of Trump
or the hypocrisy of Conservative Christian beliefs,
the millions of "useful idiots" who enable Plutocrats, simply don't care.

And THAT ... is the power of brainwashing

Despite a late start, getting into the political arena,
I must really be catching on. How do I know?

Because I already had this one figured out:

Republicans will dump Trump for Pence in a heartbeat
if he doesn't dance to their tune


If you go up to the menu and click "Podcasts & Videos" and select #385
you will see that, before Christmas, I predicted the same thing.

Democrats won't be able to save him.
They have been rendered powerless by our brilliant electorate.

And why would they want to save Trump anyway?

Because Pence (our real  president) and Ryan are far worse.

2 months ago before Trump and his pack of wolves took over the White House,
House Republicans tried to gain control over the Ethics Committee
(which pretty much gave away their game plan from the get-go).
The outcry forced them to back off and wait until everyone's attention
is directed elsewhere (like Russia or "Mezicans").

Here is an example of why they tried to take control of the committee ...

and why it is only a matter of time, before they do

Hang on tight America, the rollercoaster is just leaving the starting gate.

In the ongoing battle between moral principles and money
even liberal socialist countries like Sweden knuckle under ...

to the almighty dollar

The silence of the Feminists is deafening.

Advice:
Concentrate less on Trump's pussy-grabbing
and more on things that really matter
like standing up for, and defending, this brave principled woman.

If this story doesn't make you puke
then you might want to take your "moral compass" in for repair:

half a million cows slaughtered ... to increase profits

Mull that last story over in your head while realizing that
millions of people still starve to death in our modern world.

Worldwide death toll from starvation

But American corporations are guided by one motive, and one motive only ...

Profits

Why has history been filled with so many bad leaders?
Why do so many incompetent sycophants surpass you at work?

Rarely does any society choose to promote "leaders."
Most often, leaders are chosen from among ... the most loyal followers.
