I'm curious about something.....

If someone has a blog and posts something that you believe is not factual, is it your perogative to go hunting for proof that backs your claim or is the onus on the blogger to back up their assertions with credible facts?

There is one blog that I keep 'challenging' the owner about the sources of some of their more....insane opinions and whenever I ask where did they read/learn/hear about the topic in question, I get static about looking for myself to back up their claims.

Just curious as to who the responsibility is on: the person on the soapbox or someone in the crowd.

Thanks for the comments, but I wanted to edit/amend this a little because (to me) it appears as though I'm whining. I'm not.

Just more.....confused as to the proper etiquette when initiating a debate, so as to not come across as a beserk troll looking to just annoy someone about anything they post.

Good Grief

This is going too far:

Declaration of Independence Banned at Calif School

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A California teacher has been barred by his school from giving students documents from American history that refer to God -- including the Declaration of Independence.

Steven Williams, a fifth-grade teacher at Stevens Creek School in the San Francisco Bay area suburb of Cupertino, sued for discrimination on Monday, claiming he had been singled out for censorship by principal Patricia Vidmar because he is a Christian.

"It's a fact of American history that our founders were religious men, and to hide this fact from young fifth-graders in the name of political correctness is outrageous and shameful," said Williams' attorney, Terry Thompson.

"Williams wants to teach his students the true history of our country," he said. "There is nothing in the Establishment Clause (of the U.S. Constitution) that prohibits a teacher from showing students the Declaration of Independence."

Vidmar could not be reached for comment on the lawsuit, which was filed on Monday in U.S. District Court in San Jose and claims violations of Williams rights to free speech under the First Amendment.

Phyllis Vogel, assistant superintendent for Cupertino Unified School District, said the lawsuit had been forwarded to a staff attorney. She declined to comment further.

This makes me wonder if crap like this is happening at my daughter's school here in San Diego.

To me, this is just going waaaayyyy too far in the let's-be-politically-correct-in-every-freakin-facet-of-education scheme.

It's not like the teacher was attempting to teach the Gospel to the kids - he was trying to show one of the facets of the Founding Fathers and why they did what they did before America declared independence.

Happy Thanksgiving 2004

Just an early message to everyone to have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow.

I'll be jamming lots of turkey and gravy into my pie hole tomorrow and being thankful that I'm alive, that my family is well and happy, and that I live in the greatest nation on the planet.

Enjoy Thanksgiving Day everyone - savor the time with family & friends.

I was reminded of this by Rob at Left & Right:

Don't be an asshat and think you can make it home if you're HAMMERED.

Be a freakin intelligent person: take a cab or let someone else drive.

Make it home ALIVE.

Unconventional Weapons in Iraq

It's always the simplistic methods that work the best in warfare:

As tanks geared up to trample Fallujah and American troops started circling the city, special operations officers rifled through their CD cases, searching for a sound track to spur the assault.

What would irk Iraqi insurgents more: Barking dogs or bluegrass? Screaming babies or shrieking feedback?

Heavy metal. The Army's latest weapon.

AC/DC. Loud. Louder!

Let's roll.

I won't take no prisoners, won't spare no lives

Nobody's putting up a fight

I got my bell, I'm gonna take you to hell

I'm gonna get you . . .

I'm actually waiting for Amnesty International to start campaigning against this 'torture'.....

Dr. Spears?

The things you would never know about some celebrities....

Britney Spears Guide to Semiconductor Physics

Britney digs semiconductor physics
It is a little known fact, that Ms Spears is an expert in semiconductor physics. Not content with just singing and acting, in the following pages, she will guide you in the fundamentals of the vital laser components that have made it possible to hear her super music in a digital format.
Interesting footnote: on this site - the Britney Spears Guide to Semiconductor Physics - I found what I initially thought was a joke, but it turns out that it's true: German actress Hedy Lamarr was a gifted electrical engineer and is credited for several inventions.

Real-life Forrest

What was it Forrest Gump said? 'I'm not a smart man'?

It's true:

Robbery suspect leaves big clue for cops

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police had help in tracking down a robbery suspect ... from the suspect. Police Chief Tom Casady said officers investigating a Nov. 11 robbery had a strong clue in a $75 check from the Cass County Jail to 39-year-old Kevin Martzett.

Court records on the robbery say a 19-year-old Lincoln man was standing in his yard at about 2 a.m. on Nov. 11 when two men drove up, pointed a gun at him, forced him to get in their car and drove to an ATM.

The records say the men took $45 from the victim's wallet, then forced him to deposit the jail check, withdraw $60 and give it to them. The men then let the teenager go.

The victim identified Martzett - with help from the check - as one of the robbers. Martzett was arrested Wednesday on a robbery charge. The other suspect was being sought.

I won't feel so bad from now on when I absentmindedly attempt to put the milk into the dishwasher, realize my mistake, and then try to put it in the cabinet....
