Riding the waves of sound…

If things look funky…

They probably are! I’ve slowly been working on a new design for this site… I just pushed an alpha version of the design, so if things seem weird, it’s me…

Oh, and this site (design wise) only really works on standards compliant browsers (I need to bring the css into sync with FireFox) for now… Shifty eyed IE  stands the corner brooding…

Primary target platforms are:

* iOS 4+
* Android 2.2+
* webOS 1.4.5+

Secondary platforms are:

* Safari 5+ (desktop)
* Chrome 5+ (desktop)

“I’m afraid of Americans”

GOP candidate: Hitler invented separation of church and state

To quote….

“Do you know, where does this phrase ‘separation of church and state’ come from?” Urquhart asked at a campaign event last April. “It was not in Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists… The exact phrase ‘separation of Church and State’ came out of Adolph Hitler’s mouth, that’s where it comes from. So the next time your liberal friends talk about the separation of Church and State ask them why they’re Nazis.”

Wikipedia – Separation of church and state in the United States

To quote….

“The First Amendment to the United States Constitution reads “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” The modern concept is often credited to the writings of English philosopher John Locke, but the phrase “separation of church and state” is generally traced to an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists, where Jefferson spoke of the combined effect of the Establishment Clause and the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. His purpose in this letter was to assuage the fears of the Danbury, Connecticut Baptists, and so he told them that this wall had been erected to protect them. The metaphor was intended, as The U.S. Supreme Court has currently interpreted it since 1947, to mean that religion and government must stay separate for the benefit of both, including the idea that the government must not impose religion on Americans nor create any law requiring it.”
