Blood on Their Hands?

So, a couple of days ago, I posted the picture to the left on my Facebook page and several other (more liberal) pages that I like. I did so as an experiment; I wanted to see how the various groups would react to the idea that the NRA shares some responsibility in the recent wave of gun-related […]

It’s Past Time Pt III

Almost two weeks ago, in the aftermath of the Aurora shootings, I asked when (and what) were we going to do about the easy  availability of guns to people with mental problems. The Aurora shooter was obviously deranged, yet somehow, he managed to collect a rather extensive arsenal including 6000 rounds of ammo, at least […]

An Open Letter to my Conservative Brothers and Sisters about Tolerance

Lately, you  guys have given the word “tolerance”  a strange, new meaning. You seem to think that if your behavior has crossed the  line and become hateful, mean-spirited, discriminatory, bigoted etc, and I point that out, I’m being intolerant myself. I’ve been wondering where you got this idea. I haven’t had much success so, as usual, I decided to […]

Why I Won’t Be Eating at Chik-fil-a Today or Any Other Day

  Well, at least until they quit funding assholes like the Family Research Council and those “pray the gay away” morons at Exodus International. Until then, damned if I’ll help fund a campaign that seeks to marginalize, discriminate and malign people I care about. Unfortunately, many  people don’t get it. I’ve been accused of denying the Cathy’s […]

Religion and Politics Pt. II

Talking about religion and politics is getting to be my stock in trade these days. The last time I addressed this aspect of But Not Yet, I said Diana (my significant other) would  frown and say I shouldn’t do it. But, since then, her scorn has diminished and she’s even liked some of my more […]

It’s Past Time

Well, we’ve had another mass shooting incident and we’re right back where we were after the attack at Gabrielle Giffords campaign rally. Back then, we were in the same place we were after the Fort Hood shootings. Before that, it was Virginia Tech. The arguments are always the same: the left screams for more gun […]

Odds and Ends

Today, I thought I’d take a few minutes to update you guys on my medical travails and then address something I’m not sure I could make a whole post out of. First, the medical crap. For those not in the know, about 5 years ago, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. The surgery and follow-up treatment […]

Things You Never Hear In Church

There’s a list that’s made the rounds for quite a while called the Top Ten Things You Never Hear In Church. It’s yet another case of Christians stealing something from pop culture and using it for evangelism. Only this time it’s actually funny and it even makes you think. And, not even about how lame the […]

I Am A Snob

I have yet another confession to make: I’m a coffee snob. Yes, I’m one of those people who consider drinking Maxwell House beneath them. Okay, maybe it’s not beneath me,  but it is really bad coffee. I don’t have to drink the most expensive coffee in the world, which is Kopi Luwak (I don’t care how […]
