Who’s It Hurting?

On Dan Whitney, Political Correctness and Trans Issues For reasons unbeknownst to me now, there was a time when I found Dan Whitney’s faux southern redneck pose (aka Larry The Cable Guy) funny. I shouldn’t have; even if you leave out all the racist, sexist, anti-LGBTQ crap he spews, it’s still offensive to southerners because […]

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 […]

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 […]

Watch Out, Fox. You’ve Incurred The Wrath Of One Million Moms

With all the craziness in the news lately, I thought we could all use a break from stories about Donald Trump’s racist/xenophobic/idiotic comments, Ben Carson’s memory issues and the terminal case of foot-in-mouth disease that seems to be afflicting all the Republican presidential candidates. I don’t know about you, but that bullshit’s getting a little […]

No One Leaves Home…

3:30 in the morning is entirely too damn early to get up, even if you only have to pee. When that’s the case, you can stagger to the bathroom and handle your business without turning on any lights or anything else that will wake you up enough to prevent going back to sleep. Getting up […]

Seriously, Y’all?

Okay, the dialogue about the Syrian refugee crisis has gotten way out of hand. Is a country that was founded by immigrants, some of whom were fleeing sectarian violence and persecution, seriously debating whether or not to accept people fleeing from sectarian violence and persecution? I would think that this is a no-brainer, but obviously not. […]

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 […]

It’s Not That Easy

I had every intention of writing a humorous post about all the ridiculous shit that happened last week; things like Mike Huckabee getting bent out of shape over rainbow-colored Doritos, people losing their minds at finding out Pope Francis met with Kim Davis, the blood moon/rapture lunacy, etc. Then, Thursday happened and all that went […]

Modern-day Pharisees

It’s a well-known fact that conservative Christians are the modern-day equivalent of those legalistic, New Testament buzzkills known as the Pharisees. From their obsession with sex to their penchant for out-of-context quotation of the Bible, conservatives are doing their level best to live out H. L. Mencken’s definition of puritanism: “The haunting fear that someone, […]

The Dumbest Thing On The Internet

I’m thinking about starting a new feature called “Dumbest Thing On The Internet”. If that happens, this will most likely be the inaugural piece.  It appears that some folks are a little upset over a recent change in the United States Oath of Allegiance. claiming it was done to comply with Sharia law. According to the latest […]
