    So it’s remanded for political revenge VS remanded for actual fraud. I wonder, does it really take revenge to uncover fraud. ??!

      Make it “political” and I guess you get things done eh? how twisted is that!
      Take for instance Rupavahini’s misplaced fixation with Hitler! I mean its a good thing that the media is “educating” the “ignorant” regarding the Holocaust but then…I caught an advert today, i think they are showing the BBC Hitler docu. I happen to have the DVDs its a good watch and all that but…

      We need to find a way to make non theism political.We need some kinda angle.. 🙂
      Its election time! and the politics is trickling its way down to religurd..

        Well, the problem is non theists subscribe to many different political streams(myself being a conservative/libertarian but many of my atheist friends being liberals/socialists). As Richard Dawkins puts it, “its like trying to herd cats.”
