"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves." -- John Adams

"No money shall be drawn from the treasury, for the benefit of any religious or theological institution." -- Indiana Constitution Article 1, Section 6.

"...no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinion in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish enlarge, or affect their civil capacities." – Thomas Jefferson

This is Why I Stayed Home All Weekend

I first saw this video on a science blog I read. I'm sure it's not the only one of its kind.
This is evolutionary psychology at work, but instead of the meat from a felled mastodon, the modern humans are fighting for consumer goods.
These people are fighting for Christmas presents right? Peace on Earth? Good will towards men?

Warning: Disturbing images of humans acting like crazed lunatics.




[UPDATE: 5 horror stories from Black Friday 2012

  1. Two people were shot in Florida
  2. A man in Texas pulled a gun on a line-cutter
  3. A boy in Massachusetts was abandoned
  4. A masked gunman shot up a ceiling in Colorado
  5. A woman pulled a gun on a cop in Michigan

Indiana Residents: Did you vote for Glenda Ritz?

Let Governor-Elect Pence and the Indiana Legislature know that we voted for her because we rejected the top-down, corporate reform model imposed by the state. We embraced Ritz's platform and her research-backed proposals to support and improve our public schools.

Sign the petition at:
