Straight from twitter

With only the names changed, to protect both the innocent and the guilty.

twitterconservative: RT: President Obama Takes away National Day of Prayer, But we have “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month’? God Help Us!

afriend: I can’t find any authoritative information to that effect. I think you were duped.

twitterconservative: yep Guess you did miss it

me: If by “cancelled” you mean “issued proclamation recognizing” then sure.

twitterconservative: so close minded. open ur eyes to the truth and dint try and twist words and be politically correct

twitterconservative: and since ur a scientist as u say I’m sure u don’t believe in God either so that’s why u try and spruce up the cancelation phrase

twitterconservative: nope no confusion.he flat out spoke out and did not allow the prayer on the steps that’s a tradition

twitterconservative: Obama is about as non Christian as u can be and we all know that he lies with every word he says

Let’s see: poor reading comprehension, no understanding of sarcasm, incapable of assessing competing claims, extrapolating wildly without data. I think I had twitterconservative in my intro biology class a few years ago.

    You konw, it’s twits like these who make me glad I’m a chemist, because I didn’t have to argue with half-baked freshman logic about evolution when explaining reaction kinetics. On the other hand, I did have to explain reaction kinetics to a bunch of people who did not know what a log is… o.O

    The bunch (yes more than one) I had who thought 2 out of 4 was 2% because, ya know, there’s a 2 in it would have been just as much fun in your chem class as they were in my biology class.

    I think I did a pretty good job with the evolution stuff, but I worked rather hard at it.

    “cancel” and “proclamation recognizing” let’s see, there’s two C’s in both of those! Yes!

    And one e and one l! Now I get it! Thanks so much for clearing that up for me.

  5. […] Straight from twitter – perception and reality about Obama — Conservative “thought” untrammeled by facts. It must be comforting to have a hermetically sealed worldview that is not intersected by reality. (Snurched from Steve Buchheit.) […]
