It’s offensive when politicians try to convince us of something that they’re not. I once had this experience with a Republican state senator in California when, as a newspaper reporter, I pinned him down on his votes to raise taxes via something called the Vehicle License Fee. His answers to my questions sounded an awful lot like Sen. McCain’s protests covered by the Yuma Sun, or Nancy Pelosi’s “We have to pass the (health care) bill so you can see what’s in it.”
Nevertheless, ChiefExecutive.net just came out with its ranking of the best and worst states in which to do business and, well, you guessed it; California sucks!

By definition atheists all agree that God doesn’t exist; He’s a hoax… sort of like the Loch Ness Monster or Big Foot, only apparently more dangerous because somehow the belief by much of the rest of the world that there is a God and that He exists in some form must be enough reason to scream, shout and sue.
The protest angle in this is it seriously slows the amount of income taxes being collected by the government until that time when taxes are due (typically April 15th, but with legal extensions, this can be postponed). The goal is to slow the amount of money going on a regular basis into the US Treasury. Oh, they’ll eventually get the money, but it won’t be before it is legally due.
The popularity of social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook have given voices to those who previously had no voice, or at the very least were ignored as the lone voice crying in the wilderness. Moreover, social media seems to be the one bastion of media left where conservative thought and ideals can flourish.
