According to the woman who came up with the idea, no.

I'm gonna go with her on this one.

Thanks!  It's really fun.  And refreshing to be in a band that's not all dudes posturing!

"Mr. President, if a fake news site runs an article claiming a story to be fake news, does that constitute a double negative and therefore asserts the truthfulness of that news story?"

"It was my understanding that there would be no math."

Well played.

Also, I'd like to announce the first release by Donald., a political punk band I helped start.

Our first song and video is called "Sad."  It's only a minute and a half long, so watch it.

We also have a Facebook page.

Because it involves atheism, which to some people provokes a knee-jerk reaction to interject "Yes, but..." regardless of the content.

Well, today's the day.  Or maybe it's Monday, since he's taking the weekend off.

Hopefully, my steel-tipped workboots will show up soon.

Cain, what do you think of Samantha Powers' assessment of Russia in her UN report?
 Found here (yes, it's Vox): http://www.vox.com/world/2017/1/18/14300598/samantha-power-russia-final-speech

Basically, Russia finds it easier to gain power by destroying existing frameworks, but doesn't have a plan how to build new ones.

The original trope "There are no atheists in a foxhole" was created to give the impression that under times of extreme stress, all humans will look to a higher power to help them; ergo, atheism can be dismissed as human folly.

The subverted trope of the OP intends to show that using nothing but reasoning from the atheist's belief system, morality and good works do not have to be divinely inspired or derived, but can be concluded simply from the premise that there is no afterlife or higher power; that it's up to the individual, not god.

I remember his idea for crowd sourcing government in real time, based on some elaborate ranking system.


He did NOT like our critiques.
