The son of evangelical preacher Billy Graham is such a dickhead. I was never a fan of his father mostly because I can't stand being preached at by anyone, especially hypocrites who are quick to condemn me to hell for not seeing things their way. Plus Billy Graham's so called 'specials' always came on TV and replaced some better show that I had been waiting all week to see.
Since the elder Graham died, his douchebag of a son has taken over the family business and has used to bully pulpit to speak about things that alienate people from each other as opposed to bringing them together. His father was a wise enough man to package his message that lifted up the common man. I may not have respected much of what he said but I respected his way of saying it. Billy Graham never made you feel small or even evil for not seeing religion the way he saw it.
This weekend Franklin Graham dove head first into all this 'birther' nonsense and suggest that Obama just show his birth certificate and put the whole controversy to rest. We all know the President has already done that. He is America and by his own admission a Christian. Hearing that, the younger Graham immediately criticized the President for not being HIS kind of Christian. Who the hell does this idiot think he is?
How ignorant is it to question how a person interacts with their God? No one ever questions the way that Franklin is a Christian and neither should he question Obama's faith. He would never say this if Obama was a republican, or white.
So welcome to the wacky right wing of the Republican Party holy man and thank you for making yourself totally irrelevant to me and my generation for the rest of your life. I suspect that sooner, rather than later, we will discover that many of your judgements come from inside your glass house. Fuck you.

I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
