A Few Thoughts On NC House Bill 2

It would’ve been more timely if I had written this yesterday, but I had a prior engagement with some wisteria vines and privet hedge that had to be kept. That’s probably for the best because, yesterday, I was still pretty pissed off about today’s subject and things were a little raw. Had I written this […]

Boycott Star Wars VII: Attack of the Idiots

Two nights ago, the unthinkable happened: nerds watched Monday Night Football. Not because they were into the game. What, are you crazy? No, a few days earlier, ESPN shrewdly let slip the news that the trailer for the new Star Wars movie would air sometime during the broadcast. So, America’s geek community spent the entire first […]

Oh Boy, Columbus Day!

It appears the name of the holiday we’re presently celebrating has been changed to “Be A Condescending Dick Day” and no one bothered to let me know. Sorry if that comes off a little rough, but I am so over all the Columbus Day bullshit some of my progressive friends have throwing up on social […]

Of Frogs, Pants and “Promoting Sin”

A couple of months ago, I pretty much swore off stories about Franklin Graham. The guy is a broken record, bitching about the “gays”, the “muslims” and President Obama and I was approaching burnout where he’s concerned. That all changed this morning when I read this Facebook status he posted yesterday: Yes, beloved, the Muppets […]

The Man We Thought We Knew

The long-awaited sequel/prequel/draft/who-the-hell-knows-what-it-is to Harper Lee’s classic “To Kill A Mockingbird” hit the shelves yesterday. Titled “Go Set A Watchman“, the novel has some folks stirred up. Why? Because, in this story, Atticus Finch (aka the greatest literary character ever) turns out to be a racist and a segregationist. That’s a bit awkward, isn’t it? […]

I Am Not Ashamed Of My Heritage…, Maybe

It’s a tough time to be a somewhat-progressive white southerner with a history fetish. On one side are all your liberal friends insisting that the War Between The States (which is the polite name and southerners are nothing if not polite) was all about slavery. On the other side are your conservative friends who maintain that the […]

Violence and The Radical Welcome Of The Church

There is a quote attributed to Winston Churchill that goes, “The United States invariably does the right thing, after having exhausted every other alternative.” While it can’t be verified that he actually said that, it is a pretty good summation of how Americans handle difficult issues. Or, it used to be. These days we seem […]

Why, That’s Just Crazy Talk!

Recently, a friend shared an article that quoted part-time pastor and full-time shill for Israel John Hagee as saying that women should be put in jail for calling out, “Oh god” when they’re knocking boots. I have to say I was ecstatic at this gift from comedy heaven; maybe not as thrilled as Jon Stewart […]

You Need A Big, Steaming Cup Of STFU

On Wednesday, I posted a response to an incredibly douchey post by Matt Walsh concerning Caitlyn Jenner. Unfortunately, Walsh isn’t the only person making shitty comments about Jenner and, by extension, trans people everywhere. Now, some folks might think I shouldn’t share the words of these assholes because it gives them the attention they so […]

Calling Matt Walsh A Christian Is An Insult To Christians

So, I fully intended to write a scathing satirical piece on how progressives are falling all over themselves to tell a wealthy white woman how courageous she is for coming out as transgender. I was going to make snarky comments about how the possibility of being misgendered on Twitter is exactly like the discrimination and […]
