Memberships

I just joined the James Randi Educational Foundation, and I renewed my membership with the American Civil Liberties Union. I'm glad I'm finally in a position where I can afford to help these organizations out.

The JREF was founded by magician the Amazing Randi (James Randi) who began seeing that some people were convinced that his illusions and tricks were real magic; he wanted to help people be more discerning and more skeptical.

(BTW, I can do that dice die trick, which I figured out by paying attention to details.)

This is a special that John Stossel did with James Randi about the "Power of Belief" and debunking the claims of psychics, astrologers, therapeutic touch practitioners, and so on.


The mission of the ACLU is to preserve all of these protections and guarantees:
* Your First Amendment rights
* Your right to equal protection under the law
* Your right to due process
* Your right to privacy
This should be important to all Americans and everyone within our borders.

Of course, the ACLU doesn't respect their own members' rights to privacy, they have horrid manners in dealing with calls about same and give glib, false answers to get you off the phone. I support the things they stand for, but I wouldn't give those jackals my name or address or number or email for the world, so they'll have to do without my money also.
