You May Be Missing the Point of the Sheetcaking Bit

To say that the last 9 days have been a little crazy is an understatement on the order of calling the BP oil spill an “oopsie”. I’m not going into all that’s happened, we’re all aware. If you don’t know, you must be living under a rock. Get the fuck out and google some shit. […]

What About The Taco Trucks???

During the campaign, Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez warned that his culture was a very strong one and, if we didn’t do something about it, we’d have taco trucks on every corner. So, with the election of Donald Trump, who vowed to fix the immigration system, is that wondrous (possible) reality now just a fantasy? Shit. […]

Listen To Me, Damn It!

  When it comes to the situation in Baltimore,  Hugh Hollowell, my brother from another mother, has said that white people should  “Shut up, and amplify minority reports and black voices.” And, he’s right, that’s what we should do. But, the truth is, a lot of people won’t hear what those black voices are saying […]

News That’s Not Really News

I would like to think people come here looking for commentary that features depth and nuance. If that’s the case, I am so sorry because you’re most likely fucked; depth and nuance aren’t what you’d call my specialties. I wish they were, but you’ve got to work with what the good Lord gave you. Which, in my […]

It’s Advent (Sigh) Pt IV

It’s time for the next installment in this curmudgeonly bitch-fest about Advent. Today, we will discuss “joy”. And, before you ask, I don’t have a problem with joy: I have a problem with the way we talk about joy.  The word gets thrown around like it’s no big deal and, really, it kind of is. Our approach […]

Doing Important Stuff Here

  I hope  you all watched the Grammys last night, because something amazing happened: during the broadcast, 33 couples, both straight and LGBT, were married in a ceremony conducted by Queen Latifah while Macklemore performed “Same Love”. It was amazing! Okay, I can only assume it was; I didn’t watch because, well, it’s all just too […]

Hang Him!!!

That damn Tony Jones has done it again, saying controversial stuff and pissing off people all over the internet. This time, it was the atheists. Normally, I wouldn’t care because atheists are infidels who are bound for hell wearing gasoline underwear. But why let something as trivial as that interfere with the opportunity to vent […]

Jesus and Santa

Well, the heathens are at it again. The latest shot fired in the war on Christmas involves Santa Claus and Jesus. Now, as much as I hate having that fat pagan’s name mentioned in the same sentence as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I can’t let this attack go by without comment. What am […]

Privilege, It’s What’s for Dinner.

One of my favorite people in the whole world is Kimberly Knight. Her Coming Out Christian blog on Patheos is a must-read for me, we’re Facebook and Twitter friends and we even know each other in real life. A church and tech nerd of the first order, she’s “down with the J-man” and a Jesus […]

Listen Up

In the wake of the Zimmerman verdict, some of my conservative friends have posted stories about white people being attacked by black folks. They are almost always accompanied by the question of why these stories aren’t getting the amount of media attention that Trayvon Martin’s did. I find myself wondering if many of my progressive […]
