Mitch McConnell tries to give GOP-led Senate credit for almost five years of job growth.

Since May of 2010 the United States has gained jobs every month.  Literally.  This is the longest such streak in national history: 58 months. However, Mitch McConnell would have you believe that credit should be given to the GOP-led Senate which began…last Tuesday.  McConnell said: “After so many years of sluggish growth, we’re finally starting [Read More…]

Your morning happiness: drinking problem.

This dog is plotting an intervention: I’ll be posting all day today, but tomorrow I make the 9-hour drive to Colorado, so unless I see something cool to snap a picture of on the road (which is unlikely since it’s a straight boring shot from here), tomorrow will be pretty slow. I’ll get caught up [Read More…]

More than half the residents of my hometown think sometimes it’s ok to kill for faith.

My hometown paper ran a poll that we did not crash over the question “Do you think any religion is worth killing for?”  By a tally of 107 to 102, the residents of Baxter County answered “yes.”  This isn’t the Middle East.  This is rural Arkansas in the United States. So when the fundamentalist Christian residents [Read More…]

Pastor brags of punching student who “didn’t take god seriously.”

Saw this on Hemant’s blog: Turn the other cheek?  Fuck that.  Punch him if he doesn’t believe you.  In this fantasy the kid says “Oh, you punched me.  Jesus must be real.”  In the real world this jackass gets arrested. Note how he says the kid was “bright” which made him “more dangerous.”  So not [Read More…]

In Saudi Arabia, words speak louder than actions.

The government of Saudi Arabia decried the terrorist attack on Charlie Hebdo, where a group of Muslim were once again so incensed by cartoons that they caused physical damage in the world, in this case in the form of murdering cartoonists, as a “cowardly attack.”  Awesome.  That’s a step.  But without action it’s empty words.

“Authentication.”

Yesterday 212 college atheist/skeptic groups were sent an email that would’ve been intimidating if the authors were, well, intimidating.  The subject of the email was “Authentication,” perhaps in an effort meant to command respect but shrieks of begging for attention.  Here’s the email in all its glory. I hereby declare- you to be – – [Read More…]

Texas legislator has introduced a bill that says Texas can ignore the courts.

So the 5th Circuit is about to rule on whether or not Texas’ gay marriage ban is constitutional.  It’s up in the air how it will go.  The 5th Circuit is pretty conservative, but lots of conservatives have ruled that gay marriage bans defy the Constitution. Either way, a state legislator in Texas has introduced [Read More…]

Islamic militant group Boko Haram commits its bloodiest massacre to date.

It’s not just cartoonists: This week, Boko Haram, the Islamist terror group based in northern Nigeria, launched a massive attack on the town of Baga, killing dozens, according to Reuters. Other initial reports put the number of dead in the hundreds or thousands. The attack is the latest in the group’s increasingly bloody campaign to establish an Islamic state in [Read More…]

Taylor Swift is turning your children gay.

I knew she was up to something: Larry Tomczak is now suggesting children are learning ‘homosexuality is a beautiful way of life’ because of the many pro-gay messages on television. Well, they’re learning that love is beautiful…because it is.  They’re also learning that being gay is acceptable…because it is. He suggests people like Ellen DeGeneres [Read More…]
