WARNING! I'm an atheist, and some of what I write here might, well most likely will, offend a religious person, a person of faith, if you will. It's not done with intent, that's just the way it is.

For some reason, religion is generally treated in a special way. Yes, for some reason, folks think that no one should make fun of religion or say anything negative about religion. I see no logic to this. We can say what we want about your favorite football team, the person who you voted for, and so on, but we're supposed to hold our tongue about your faith. Folks, that just doesn't make any sense. Anyway, I felt I would at least warn you. If you are a religious person I would encourage you to read my posts; with an open mind, please. If I say things that aren't true about your religion, please let me know. Leave a comment or send me an email. Would most likely be willing to discuss it with you. Hey, I'm up for learning something new.

Also, keep in mind, that if you are a Christian, my understanding is that you're saying that your god is the only god. Now, if that's true, which I understand it to be, then that of course is a direct insult to every other religion out there. You've said their god isn't the real deal; I'd call that an insult...

Kevin Trudeau Lost His Bid to Throw Out a $37.6 Million Fine...

(Reuters) - Infomercial pitchman Kevin Trudeau lost his bid to throw out a $37.6 million fine for violating a 2004 Federal Trade Commission settlement over his advertising and a federal appeals court said the amount might even be too low.
Trudeau has long battled federal regulators over his marketing of "cures" for such conditions as AIDS, hair loss, memory loss, obesity and financial distress.

Occasionally there is a little justice.
A few years ago I was in Sam's browsing in their book section. A lady had just picked-up one of Trudeau's books. The conversation with her went something like this:
"Hi. I don't mean to be rude and intrude, but do you know anything about him?" pointing to her book.
"Oh, yes."
"Do you know he's been in jail for fraud?"
"Ah, yes."
"Do you know most of what he writes is not true, that his books are just a scam?"
"Well, in one of his books I learned that a little vinegar helps with an upset stomach."
Well, folks, I guess that's just the way it is. And, yes, I guess it's true that there are a lot of suckers out there just waiting for the Trudeaus of the world to steal from them.
