Prompted by current events (aka: the Delaware debates), this segment delves into the Separation of Church & State clause within the 1st Amendment...and Christine O'Donnell's lack of knowledge about either.

I also discuss NPR's firing of Juan Williams for his recent comments and whether it was a 1st Amendment issue (as claimed) or the right thing for NPR to do. Plus the teaching of Creationism Vs Evolution in public schools and more! www.stimulatedboredom.com

Prompted by a recent slew of Facebook status's on the subject of the Pledge of Allegiance, I discuss the actual history of its origin and whether it is as romantic or as patriotic as people think it is.

Also, is it necessary to recite it anymore and should it be mandatory? Naturally this transitions into additional tangents of discussion and subject matter!

The Treaty of Versailles saddled Germany with sole responsibility for WWI and 31.4 Billion ($400 billion today) in reparations due to the allied countries. It was a national humiliation & considered a leading cause for Germany's hyperinflation pre-WWII and a main platform for Hitler's rise to power. 

This weekend, Germany will make its final reparation payment...92 years later. I discuss the treaty, its ramifications and the aftermath which helped lead to the conditions for WWII.

I'm heading back to Washington for Jon Stewart's, "Rally to Restore Sanity". In this segment I discuss why such a rally is needed, what I hope it accomplishes and whether or not we will eventually all be able to act like we are from the same f$@king planet again.
