God Still Hates Yoga Pants?

The world keeps on turning and, somehow, we’ve come back to the yoga pants conversation again. Before we go any further, let me state for the record, that I believe yoga pants are awesome. Think about it, we’re talking about something that makes women look good, but is also comfortable for them? Considering all the […]

Double Standards Abound

For the past few days, the internet has been abuzz with news about the militia stand-off in Burns, Oregon. From what I can see, it’s mostly progressive people perpetuating this chatter; my conservative friends are generally silent on the matter. The media hasn’t been much help, either. Much of their coverage has followed along the lines of […]

One Million Moms Is At It Again

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, One Million Moms is at it again. And, by “at it again”, I mean they’re upset about another TV show they haven’t seen. This time, it’s Samantha Bee’s upcoming series, Full Frontal. This time, however, there’s a new wrinkle: they’re wound up over the title of […]

Zombies In The Crèche?

As the song says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. And, that’s true…, as long as you color within the lines. But, if your approach to celebrating Christmas falls outside the norm, it is so not “the hap-hap-happiest season of all”. Don’t believe me? Just ask Jasen and Amanda Dixon of Sycamore, Ohio. Like many […]

#WorstResponders

Unless you live under a rock, the phrase “9-11” carries a certain weight. Many of us remember that day with a frightening clarity; one born of watching terrible events play out in real-time on our televisions. Some, like me, were sitting in a fire station and saw our brothers and sisters of the FDNY selflessly […]

Unintentional Irony + Thinly-veiled Racism = Final Thoughts With Tomi Lahren

I’ve stayed away from commenting on the shootings that occurred in San Bernardino the other day. I’ve done so for multiple reasons, including that I don’t know what to say and that I’m sick to death of hearing about these mass shooting atrocities. I also didn’t want to add to the cacophony of voices spewing […]

The War On Christmas

As many of you know, I’ve spent a great deal a decent amount a lot some time declaring that the War on Christmas is bullshit. In the past, I’ve hinted that it’s a smokescreen perpetrated by a certain news channel to blind the masses to how they’re getting screwed or a ploy by a cynical media whore […]

Don’t You Think This Stuff Is Getting Out Of Hand?

By now, everyone knows that Friday afternoon, Robert Lewis Dear attacked the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood office, killing 3 people and injuring 9. Any way you slice it, this was a terrible tragedy and it left the nation in shock. Well, not really. You see, the shit wasn’t even over before people took to the internet in an attempt […]

The National Religious Liberties(?) Conference

These days, it seems like bat shit crazy is everywhere you look. Between Ben Carson’s notion that Joseph (you know, from the Bible?) built the pyramids to serve as grain silos, people getting their shorts in a knot over a god damn paper cup and the mere fact that human hair ball Donald Trump is […]

Much Ado About Nothing?

On Monday, I weighed in on the Starbucks holiday cup controversy that, it turns out, isn’t all that controversial. At least, that’s what some folks are trying to say. Conservatives are claiming that no one is upset about Starbucks decision to go with an unadorned red cup this holiday season in place of the more […]
