Dad on abortion.

Dad nails it again. What amazes me is that the anti-choice screamers aren’t doing the best possible and simplest things to prevent abortions. That would be funding and promoting broad based sex education and making contraception free and readily available. If you don’t want abortions, that is how you stop them. If, instead, you want [Read More...]

Dad on Paul Ryan's healthcare policy

Booyah. On Medicare, if Ryan is so sure his voucher program is better for seniors and the budget, why does he not have the courage to propose a clean-sweep change? It’s because he knows the voucher program will screw seniors, and the seniors know it, too, that’s why the 55 cut-off. It will do nothing [Read More...]

Dad on Paul Ryan

A couple of minor things about Paul Ryan. Ryan hasn’t spent any time working in the private sector. It has all been politics. Wasn’t that one of the right wing reasons why Obama shouldn’t be elected: never ran a business and limited experience in the private sector? How come that doesn’t apply to Ryan? Neither [Read More...]

Well, this ought to stir the Arkies up.

My hometown newspaper just ran this editorial.  If, in 2008, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had possessed the sort of influence evident by the overwhelming national response to his “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” initiative Aug. 1, he might have become president. Reacting to the gay marriage controversy stemming from remarks by Dan Cathy, president of the [Read More...]

Dad on the slippery slope argument

Another facebook friend tagged me in a comment asking for my assessment of the slippery slope argument.  On this occasion it was, “If you let gays marry, why not polygamists?” Dad got to it before I could and hammered it harder. [Read more...]

Dad owning Steven Hodges.

The same person who said, “It matters” re-posted something my dad had on his facebook. Then, because it’s Mountain Home, Arkansas, the believers came. [Read more...]

Dad refutes "It's just traditional values"

A friend of mine posted an article on Chick-Fil-A’s bigotry toward gays the other day.  A few people came on to defend CFA, including this person. Dad was having none of it. [Read more...]

Mom on prayer

Since I seem to have handed mom the keys to my blog lately (and since everybody reading doesn’t seem to mind), here’s something she sent Sandy on prayer. Pray for me if you must, but rather than pray for my sorry heathen soul, why not pray for god to help the thousands of starving children [Read More...]

Dad gets in on the act

Dad got a message on facebook too. John, I have to wonder- why do you dedicate so much of your time to disproving Christianity? Does our belief offend you so much? Can’t you just let us continue in our “ignorance” without posting about its stupidity so much? I am friends with you on facebook because [Read More...]

Mom breaking off a piece

Mom got a message from one of her old classmates on facebook. Carol, I just want you to know that I pray for you and John every day. I fail to understand why you are so afraid of christianity. Obviously you do not understand it. Let me just say this. You have never read a [Read More...]
