Donald Trump: “I will win the Latino vote.”

After implying that immigrants (later qualified to just be the illegal immigrants, the ones largely fleeing poverty) are rapists and drug dealers coming to America with ill intent (which caused gobs of people/companies associated with Donald Trump to stop doing that), ol’ Donald is confident that he will win the Latino vote: “I have a [Read More...]

No physician assisted suicide for terminally ill patients in California. Thanks, religion.

A bill in California that would have given terminally ill patients the right to physician-assisted suicide has failed to advance.  The reason terminally ill, suffering patients should have to stick around to deteriorate in pain for however long it takes them to die naturally?  Why, the love of Christ, of course: A California bill that [Read More...]

Holy crap the news is boooooooooring today.  But I guess that’s a good thing.  If there’s little catching my eye that means people largely stopped fucking with one another for a whole weekend.  You go, humanity.

How the Baxter County nativity lawsuit is probably going to play out.

I was thinking about the Baxter County nativity case yesterday (if you’re unfamiliar with the case, I’ve covered it in great detail here and here) in which the county judge is, frankly, without a doubt discriminating against the atheists he’s charged with representing.  It occurred to me I need to write about how it’s going [Read More...]
