Taxpayer Money to Fund ‘Historically Themed’ Noah’s Ark Museum

by: Josh Kilburn


According to Answers in Genesis, it took Noah around 120 years to construct his ark. And while he had a variety of tools, there’s one tool I’m sure that Noah didn’t have: tax money.


Of course, that’s not stopping Ken Ham, who is desperately trying to prove Genesis is literal by constructing an exact replica of the Ark using an army of people and taxpayer money. That’s what he wants, anyway, since he’s convinced the state of Kentucky to approve his request to use taxpayer money on his “Ark Encounter.”


The final tab for this project, passed off to the taxpayers of the Bluegrass State, comes to about $73 million.


So, of course, the powers that be are behind him all the way. According to the New Civil RightsMovement:


But Ham has convinced the powers that be — yes, the governor supports the project — that it would pay for itself with the additional tax revenue it would generate.
The project would be funded by the Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority, which meets tomorrow to vote on the plan. Ham already got the state to approve $173 million in state funding three years ago but withdrew his request when he was having funding challenges on his side.
Mike Zovath, Ark Encounter’s project coordinator says they “expect” to get funding approval from the state “because the project fits all the criteria for the tourism act.”
Apparently, historical accuracy isn’t one of the criteria, although Ham insists the ark will be 510 feet long, supposedly exactly as described in the Bible — making it the “largest timber-frame structure in the USA.”
 
The Courier-Journal reports thatAnswers in Genesis embraces a literal interpretation of the book of Genesis and a belief that the Earth is only 6,000 years old — a view that runs counter to science. As a result, the Noah’s Ark theme park has drawn criticism that the state incentives, as well as a $10.25 million project put into the state road construction plan to improve the state road between I-75 and the park, violate the constitutional requirement of separation of church and state.”


Counter to science? Try counter to reality. I’ve mentioned before how the problem isn’t “big government” and “small government,” but “stupid government” and “smart government.” This is big and stupid government. The Journal continues:


“It’s a religiously themed project with potentially evangelical overtones, and therefore it would erode the separation of church and state for it to receive any money from the taxpayers,” said Sarah Jones, spokeswoman for the Washington-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
Asked if the group plans to take the matter to court, Jones said, “I can’t comment about the possibility of any potential legal action.”
Zovath said in response to such critics, “The state isn’t endorsing anything by incentivizing an attraction to bring tourism dollars into the state.”
Gov. Steve Beshear has supported the project. Regarding the new application to be considered Tuesday, Governor’s Office spokesman Terry Sebastian said, “The project will receive the normal review of the authority, and we wish the project success in bringing tourism and economic activity to northern Kentucky.”
They wasted a lot of words to say that they’re suckering the taxpayers into footing the bill for a $73 million Bible-themed tourist trap.

Republican Mayor Drops A Truth Bomb on GOP


Bill Maher on Refugee Kids








Oh the Places You’ll Go… and Get Kicked Out Of

Howdy there, partner,
Today is your day.
You made it to Brownsville!
Now please go away.

You had dreams of Miami,
You had dreams of Chicago.
One day, you thought,
“I’ll wash dishes at Spago.”

You thought our arms would be open,
Our streets would be gleaming,
Instead of that,
You got teabaggers screaming.

The teabaggers say,
“It’s not that we’re monsters
Or that we don’t care.
It’s just that God put us here,

 And God put you there.”
And just cuz you’re here,
Don’t think that you beat us.
Cuz we don’t love kids

 Unless they’re a fetus.
So cut us some slack,
Turn that frown upside-down,
It’s not our fault
You’re a little too brown.

But I say, welcome to America.
We could use some of your grit.
You’ll get used to Republicans,
They’re just full of shit!

So be careful out there,
Or immigration will catch you.
And remember to never believe
What you read on a statue.”

Sarah Palin TV

by: Josh Kilburn


Breibart reports that Sarah Palin, following through with her vow to go around the “mainstream media’s filter,” launched her own member-supported digital TV channel on Sunday evening.


That’s right; if you didn’t get enough of her on Twitter and Facebook, now you can get your daily dose of Palin by paying for a digital subscription. They pay me to sit through her speeches, I can’t imagine willingly sitting through one, let alone paying for the . . . “pleasure.”


Writing on Facebook, Palin asked her credulous audience: “Tired of media filters? Well, so am I. So, let’s go rogue together and launch our own member-supported channel! This will be OUR channel, for you and for me, and we’ll all get to call it like it is.”


First Paula Deen, now Sarah Palin. Consider this your warning to stay away from subscription-based networks.


Via Breibart:


Palin linked to her channel and a video that welcomes Americans to her “new project” that will allow her to “talk directly” to Americans on her terms.
The channel, which is a part of the TAPP network, has videos, speeches and “Sarah Says” video commentary from Palin. She will also answer questions, chat with subscribers, and provide behind-the-scenes videos of “some of the fun in the Palin household” and “adventures in the great outdoors.” She will also invite and interview various guests as well.
In a “Sarah Says” video that is featured on the site, Palin says the tragic downing of the Malaysian Airlines plane has “shifted the balance of world opinion against Vladimir Putin” since “there is a lot of evidence pointing to pro-Russian separatists” as being responsible for the “thoughtless massacre.” She said that Putin, though, still holds “oil and gas prices over the heads of those” who are dependent on Russia’s resources even as he is trying to distance himself from the separatists. Palin noted that Putin uses his energy resources essentially “as a weapon” against Europeans who are afraid to cross him. Palin said American needed to curb Russian power by developing its own resources and diluting Russia’s. She said America could be a “natural gas exporter” if the government got serious about development.


What happened to the right-wing support for Putin? It’s best we not ask; after all, they were always at war with Eastasia.

You Lost, Get Over It

Conservative Racists Stage Confederate Flag Protest in Lexington


by: Josh Kilburn


Organizers for the Sons of Confederate Veterans held a rally to protest Washington and Lee University’s decision to remove the Confederate battle flag from Lee Chapel. The rally drew a crowd of about 250 Confederate sympathizers from Maryland and Georgia.


The purpose of the protest was as an attempt to convince the universities to change their minds on the flag removal; apologists were out in full-force, as well.


A supporter from Maryland, David Barber wants people to understand the confederate flag is a symbol of southern pride not discrimination.
“I don’t feel the flags were racist by no means it’s its [sic] a christian flag an American flag,” Barber said.

The Sons of the Confederate Veterans held the rally because Washington and Lee University decided to remove the battle flags from Lee Chapel.

They say the purpose of the event is give people a chance to express their feelings.
“There was no public dialogue about this we tried to get the university to get public forum on the matter prior to making any decision and we didn’t anticipate a decision before September,” Brandon Dorsey, Command of Stonewall Brigade Camp Sons of Confederate Veterans said.

Historian David Chaltas spoke about Lee’s Christian background, adding that he also wanted to clarify any misconception about Lee, and the Lee taught African Americans to read the Bible. “At the very end he felt his mission was to make as much contribution to Christian education,”  Chaltas said.

Chaltas is trying too hard. The only thing you really need to know about Lee is that he committed treason; anything else is relevant only to people who specialize in the field of Civil War studies.

I wonder how many of these people ate Bergdahl alive for the allegations of desertion and joining the Taliban. With Lee, these weren’t allegations. Lee deserted his post in the United States, and it’s objective history that he did so.
