Be back tomorrow.

The last few days I’ve been having some issues with anorexia resurfacing.  It’s not terrible, and I’m far more equipped to handle it now than in the past.  But it’s a slow news day and my head just isn’t in writing today on account of it.  I’m gonna chill, watch Sherlock and Once Upon A [Read More...]

Western Center for “Journalism” puts out some epic level crazy.

I present this with no commentary.  It speaks for itself. Ironically, lots of the people who see this and nod their agreement voted for George W. Bush and supported him for the entirety of his time in office…even as the economy tanked.  But now that Obama is in charge and the economy is recovering their [Read More...]

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...]

Matt Dillahunty obliterates Cliffe Knechtle.

I think Matt Dillahunty is the best debater atheism has.  But holy shit, did he ever put a particularly powerful beat down on Cliffe Knechtle. Knechtle did a great deal of preaching.  Dillahunty did a great deal of owning. I’ve been on stage with Dillahunty in a debate.  It was one of the greatest honors [Read More...]

Arkansas Tech needs to disavow comments by homophobic teacher.

A teacher at Arkansas Tech, Wayne Helmer, recently penned an editorial in Prism, the journal of the American Society for Engineering Education.  In the piece Helmer insists that diversity should not include the LGBT.  The kindest thing I can say about it is that it’s factually errant.  Click here to see the excerpt I got [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: Dire, dire docks.

For this morning’s morning happiness I got you one of my favorite songs from a video game ever.  I might be in the mood to do these the rest of the week.  Anyway, here’s a remix of Dire, Dire Docks from Super Mario 64.  [Read more...]

Baxter Bulletin letter to the editor #3: John Bukovac Jr.

mmmMMMmmmm…feeling the beers.  Let’s keep going!  Here’s what John Bukovac Jr. had to say! From John Bukovac Jr.Bull Shoals: The last few days have been difficult to read stories regarding our nativity display. But, this is not the first case of Christians coming under attack for expressing our faith. The pastor of my church has [Read More...]

Baxter Bulletin letter to the editor #2: George Lyman.

One beer down (fortunately, I only have four in the fridge).  Now on to George Lyman’s entry in the most pig-ignorant letter to the editor competition. Sonny, I don’t think anyone is going to use the “kick me” sign on your back. You make more sense in a lot of situations than most people around [Read More...]

Baxter Bulletin letter to the editor #1: Stephen J. Lemmons.

Today there was a deluge of letters to the editor of my hometown newspaper about the nativity scene that were left marinating in a vat of stupid as fuck before they were sent in.  We’re going to go through all of them today.  Pack a lunch.  I plan to drink a beer in between each [Read More...]

Jon Stewart nails people freaking out over legalized pot in Colorado.

Like shooting fish in a barrel, but doing it behind-your-back to show how easy it is. [Read more...]

Your morning happiness: porcupine with a pumpkin.

I wish food made me this happy.  Enjoy this bit of morning happiness, because it’s about to be a rage-inducing day. [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...]

Science v. Religion.

In the wake of all the bullshit regarding the nativity scene in Mountain Home, Arkansas…this seemed appropriate: [Read more...]
