Video games are coming to morning happiness.  I regret nothing!

David Barton: opposition to women’s suffrage was based on biblical principles and was for the good of society.

Sometimes you don’t even have to analyze what they say…sometimes you just have to repeat it, drop the mic, walk away, and hope people have the moral fiber to be as disgusted as you are.

TN state senator compares the Affordable Care Act to the Holocaust.

I’ve grown cynical in my time as a blogger.  A lot of times when I see a headline like “Tennessee State Senator Compares Obamacare To The Holocaust” I’ll read the article and realize the comparison was tenuous at best.  That is honestly what I expected when I saw that headline.
