Anti-abortion group going before SCOTUS to argue for their right to lie.

I normally don’t write much on weekends, but this is just too…good?  Well, it’s pretty lame, but you know what I mean. Back story: the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List put up dishonest billboards about an Ohio politician.  The billboards were blocked and the courts have upheld the decision. During the 2010 election cycle, [Read More...]

This loan program is an indictment on America.

Dan Fincke posted this.  If you ever wondered what was wrong with America, this is it:   As Lisa Wade put it: “Yep, it’s an invitation to K-12 teachers to go into debt to do their job.” There are apparently enough teachers going into debt to do what the state should be doing that a [Read More...]

County Judge Mickey Pendergrass wants a majority? Let’s give him one.

You all know I’m not in the habit of asking people to share my blog, but on this occasion I would appreciate if it very much if you would take the time to write a letter and to share this post far and wide.  Because it’s so close to home, this one’s a bit personal [Read More...]

Interview with Judge Mickey Pendergrass.

The local paper has an interview up with the judge who denied the atheists representation.  Much of what he said is worth commenting on. He says all the personal messages he’s getting are supportive.  No shit?  A Tea Party official is only hearing supportive comments personally?  Fancy that.  And so what?  If the majority of [Read More...]

Alabama legislator Jerry Fielding is just as bad as Phil Robertson.

Alabama state senator Jerry Fielding (you can guess his political affiliation) is introducing a bill that would canonize Phil Robertson as a hero and announce Alabama’s unanimous support for the shamed reality ex-star.  Here’s what Fielding told his local press: “Phil Robertson’s family values are shared by the vast majority of Alabamians, who are rightfully [Read More...]

My brother suffered through healthcare.gov…for 15 minutes.

I posted before about my parents signing up for the Affordable Care Act.  My bro just went through it himself: I tried to sign up for the ACA.  The website told me that I qualified for free healthcare, but that Kansas hadn’t expanded the program there.  It’s probably to protect freedom or something like that.

Uganda passes massive anti-gay bill.

Uganda passed a massive anti-gay bill last week.  Christians in America responded by caring more about one bearded bigot’s “freedom of speech” than about the right of gay people to not spend their entire lives in a fucking cage for loving a consenting adult. Uganda’s parliament has just voted (Friday) on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill (also [Read More...]

NY State Senator Andrew Lanza is dying to be persecuted.

You’ve probably heard by now that a state senator out of New York, Andrew Lanza, has griped about the American Atheists Times Square billboard on his official page.  Let’s just hop right in: The controversial activist group unveiled its latest anti-Christmas ad this week in Times Square along with a press release declaring that “Christmas [Read More...]
