The Republicans have been running with the idea that the attack on the Benghazi consulate, in 2012 which led to four deaths including the U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, is somehow as bad as Watergate, the Holocaust, and the burning of the Reichstag. The fact is that the Republicans are harping on Benghazi because they want to smear President Obama once again and to try and undercut the potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton while trying to distract from their do-nothing Congressional leadership that refuses to do anything to help the actual people in this country.

Everything Should Be Open To Questioning? Not Quite

photo showing a happy coupleBeing an atheist, I have spent a lot of time debating religious people about all sorts of things such as my freedom to be an atheist to the US motto (In God We Trust) being printed on our money. The theist is on the wrong side of the debate all the time but they seem to believe my equality and freedom is subject to debate. No one would rationally support that kind of injustice.
