The other day Marco Rubio went on ABC News with host George Stephanopoulos. The topic turned to Rubio’s opposition to exceptions in anti-abortion measure in the case of rape. Stephanopoulos asked a very simple question of Rubio: “What do you say to that mom when you look her in the eye?” the ABC host wondered. And [Read More...]
Rubio: Being impregnated after being raped is horrifying, but you should still have the rapist’s kid.
Hillary gives stage to Steinem and Albright, both of whom proceed to shame women who don’t support Hillary.
It should be noted before I get into this post that I would love to see a first female President. However, I support Bernie because I think he’d be a better leader. However, if Clinton gets the nomination (which I think she will), I’ll likely vote for her since she’ll then be the best realistically [Read More...]
Surprising nobody, and despite Trump’s assurances, Mexico won’t be paying to erect a wall along our Southern border.
Remember when Trump said that if he wins the presidency he’d build a wall along the Mexican border and get Mexico to pay for it? Yeah, it turns out that’s not going to happen: Donald Trump may want to build a wall across the U.S. southern border to keep Mexican migrants out but don’t expect [Read More...]
Jeb Bush’s Super PAC crowdsourced over $300,000 to air this 30 second ad in New Hampshire during the Super Bowl. It’s George W.

From moon-landing hoaxers to anti-vaxxers to creationists to 9/11 conspiracists, there has always been—and will always be—people that dismiss science and [Read More...]

At the National Prayer Breakfast the other day Paul Ryan said about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard (so at least he picked the right venue for it): I’ve noticed a growing impatience, though, with prayer in our culture these days. You see it in the papers, or you see it on Twitter. When people [Read More...]
Good morning, all! [Read more...]
I was talking with my dad about this post (which you’ll need to have read in order to get the joke): My family is brilliant. Seriously, I stand in envy of my father, mother, and brother. But it’s so nice that all of us don’t feel the need to take ourselves seriously at all times. [Read More...]
Recently elementary students at Kellybrooke Elementary School raised money to feed the homeless for the City Union Mission right here in Kansas City. This is ordinarily cool — pretty much every atheist is all for helping the homeless (as opposed to, say, constructing enormous masturbatory crosses) — except there’s one problem: that money doesn’t go just [Read More...]
