Operation American Spring continues to try and unseat the President.

Thanks to Ed Brayton for flagging this video, which was posted by one of the remaining American Spring protesters to brag. Such cohesion.  Much military precision.  Wow. Some of these militia members, who think they have the potential to overthrow the government against our actual military if only they’re allowed to carry whatever guns they [Read More...]

Look for content this evening…

So because mom and dad live in the boonies of Arkansas, technology isn’t exactly what it is in the ultra modern states like…Kansas.  *sigh* We’re getting hit by a crazy-ass thunderstorm that has slowed the internet down to hyper slow or completely unconnected (I’m using my phone to post this update).  This means I can’t [Read More...]

Comment of the day.

This is not a regular feature, but I saw a comment today that deserved some sort of award.  My dad shared my post about the “In God We Trust” on schools bill in PA.  Someone commented on that share saying: Sure, PA’s education system has a grossly unfair funding formula, and the Philadelphia School District, [Read More...]

John Oliver on net neutrality.

Ok, gonna post this before we get on the road.  I get asked a lot to explain net neutrality, and this is one of the best explanations I’ve heard: Watch the vid, then click here and make noise. If you want a glimpse at who is responsible for this?  Look at your local internet/cable provider: [Read more...]

Find me a wedding ring!

Ok, Michaelyn and I are driving 2.5 hours to the big city today on the hunt for wedding rings (squeee!).  We’ll visit my brother and watch the LCS today before heading out to stores.   But stores suck and they’re so unoriginal.  Here’s where you come in. We’re having a Doctor Who themed wedding.  We don’t [Read More...]

Detroit: as education and access to contraception dwindle, abortion rate goes up. Who’d have thunk it?

What if I told you…that if you take away education and access to contraception that the abortion rate goes through the fucking roof? Nearly one-third of all pregnancies in the city of Detroit end in abortion, a statistic public health officials blame on rising poverty and dwindling access to affordable contraception. Of an estimated 18,360 [Read More...]

I lurve you guys.

Hey all.  I’m still in Augusta, KS chilling with Michaelyn’s father and step-mom.  I’ve also come down with the plague she had last week, so I’m going to spend today resting and holding court with Michaelyn’s family when I can. But I wanted to thank you.  Last night the blog hit its average traffic for [Read More...]

Jon Stewart goes HAM in defense of US veterans.

For those who don’t know, going HAM is an acronym for going hard as a mother-fucker.  That’s what Jon Stewart did about reports that waiting lists to veterans hospitals were being manipulated to make it look like wait times weren’t a problem: The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily [Read More...]

Surprise, surprise, 30 million people didn’t show up for Operation American Spring.

Hyper conservative rallies in DC haven’t lived up to the hype as of late.  Remember the time that thousands of ex-gay activists were going to send a message to Washington? “Thousands.” Or the time “thousands” were going to bombard the Capitol in an effort to defund the Affordable Care Act? Yes, thousands…and one lady on the right [Read More...]

Dan Fincke creates class on “God Is Not Dead”, challenges Christians to take it.

Dr. Fincke wrote tremendously popular posts on why the arguments in the film God Is Not Dead (and I call it a “film” in the sense that I call what internet trolls have a “life”), well, aren’t very good.  Building upon that success, he has created online courses in addition to his others (I’m taking [Read More...]
