"Orthodoxy means not needing to think"

"In Oceania at the present day, Science, in the old sense, has almost ceased to exist. In Newspeak there is no word for 'Science.' The empirical method of thought, on which all the scientific achievements of the past were founded, is opposed to the most fundamental principles of Ingsoc." ~George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 9

The latest spin on Mitt Romney:

Voters Staying At Home Secretly Support Romney

Really? The sky was such a beautiful shade of green today, too.

Newspeak is alive and well. George Orwell would be proud.
