Texas sues to avoid taking Syrian refugees. Bush appointee tells them no.

Texas has been trying as hard as it can to deny Syrian refugees, even though the federal government has decided to take a small number of them.  They recently sued the federal government over this and, predictably, have lost: Texas hit a major setback on Monday after a federal judge rejected its efforts to block [Read More...]

Study shows teens are largely ok with porn. Josh McDowell Ministries has a plan.

Ok so the Barna Group, at the behest of Josh McDowell Ministries, has done a study on porn use and teens/young adults.  It turns out that young people (big surprise) are more sexually liberated than the previous generation (just like with every generation before them): When they talk about pornography with friends, 90% of teens, [Read More...]

MORNING HAPPINESS #2: Hitting the big shot.

I’m in the middle of working on my first post of the day while keeping my eye on twitter for anything developing.  I saw a link to this video on ESPN that made me smile all over the place.  It’s a high school basketball game where one team has an equipment manager with Down Syndrome.

Rubio: Being impregnated after being raped is horrifying, but you should still have the rapist’s kid.

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...]

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. Bush telling people to vote for Jeb: Dubya spent about eight years demonstrating that his judgement was…less than stellar — so much so that no other Republican candidate in the last three presidential [Read More...]

Guest Post: “Why do some people have trouble believing science?”

The following is a guest post for Dr. Peter Coppinger: Why do some people have trouble believing science?” I’m hardly an expert on this, but I can lend my experience as a college professor. 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...]
