Congratulations Pete Stark

Congratulations Pete Stark (D-CA) for being this years Humanist of the year.

The American Humanist Association is an organization that promotes a value system that is derived from a completely secular view of the world. These values may change as more information becomes available. Pete Stark is being honored because he publicly admitted that he doesn't believe in god, and he is a representative in our congress. This is significant because many Americans feel that they would be least likely to vote for an atheist out of many other groups.

Congratulations again

legislative branch circumvented

The executive branch of the American Federal Government has effectively been circumvented. Not only that, the legislative branch has been cut out of law making in a very underhanded way.

First consider the NSHS executive order which describes the "power" that George W. Bush has to declare martial law, or "provide for the continuity of government." Next consider the fact that the executive branch has not allowed the continuity of government plans to be reviewed by the homeland security committee of congress to review these plans for continuity of government (video below). What in these plans requires that the plans not be reviewed by our legislative branch; I shiver to think of it.
