AFA’s Naughty or Nice List

  Christina here…. One “Million” Mom’s sent me an email! Dear Christina, As the Christmas shopping season begins full swing, here is our annual “Naughty or Nice” retailer list. We have taken the top 100 national retailers and reviewed their websites, media advertising and in-store signage in an effort to help you know which companies [Read More...]

Companies that suck: volume 1.

Some business owners are positively livid that they now, by federal law, must provide healthcare to the employees that make them rich.  I’ll try to update this blog with a list as I learn about them. Denny’s.  This one sucks.  I actually kind of like Denny’s. The owner of more than 40 Denny’s restaurants throughout [Read More...]

McCain misses Benghazi briefing to demand greater attention be paid to Benghazi.

John McCain and the rest of the GOP have gotten a bit of tunnel vision lately: Benghazi.  Even though the rest of the world seems to have mourned the tragedy and also tackled every other political issue, FOX and the Republicans seem fixated on this one topic (because it’s important, and certainly not for political [Read More...]

Tea baggers in Wisconsin want to arrest people for *not* breaking the law.

This is just a hoot. Rep. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) is one of the nine from Wisconsin who told the Campaign for Liberty he would back legislation to declare Obamacare illegal and allow police to arrest federal officials who take steps to implement it in Wisconsin. He said he believes the health care law is unconstitutional, [Read More...]

Michaelyn’s face as she got engaged.

The video of my entire Skepticon 5 talk will go up eventually.  However, one of the people with Camp Quest Oklahoma was there and managed to have a camera on Michaelyn while I was doing my proposing.  He sent me that video.  Here’s how it went down.  I had given roses to some of the [Read More...]

Comment roundup 11/16: Argument with Stan.

My mother posted this picture to her facebook this morning. First came one of mom’s facebook friends.  We’ll call him Bawb.  Bawb has since deleted his comment, but he charged saying my mom was uneducated, that explaining would be a waste of time, but that he would pray for her.  I didn’t take too kindly [Read More...]

Good guy google being transparent.

Google is in the habit of posting how many requests for private information they receive from governments around the world, because it turns out our governments (y’know, the ones employed by the citizens they like to monitor) aren’t to keen on telling us when they’re rummaging about our private information. Turns out those requests are [Read More...]

Romney really meant the 47% comment.

Remember when Mitt Romney “misspoke” that bit about 47% of Americans (read: the people he wanted to represent) being societal leeches?  Of all the times for there to be a hidden camera in the room, right?  About a month afterward Mitt, who would never lie to get elected, told America that what he said didn’t [Read More...]

Tales from the road.

My talk at the University of Missouri last night went swimmingly.  Afterward, MU SASHA, the SSA affiliate at the school, went out to the bar and dragged me along.  There, they attempted to pull a CASH (the SSA group at the University of Minnesota, which has a reputation for attempting homicide on all speakers who [Read More...]

Gideon Bible Gauntlet Run on College Campuses

If you see something here that almost resembles your question, but your main concern isn’t addressed, go ahead and ask again in the comments. I’ll do my best to respond.   Reader Question: At [Read More...]

Questions for the GOP

Steven here… This year we saw the Republican party get stomped. And primarily because they fielded a ton of “social conservative” candidates. I put “social conservative” in scare quotes by the way because it’s actually a misspelling of the word “wrong.” Several of these jerks would have won, and done so handily though if they [Read More...]

The Week in Review – Law and Atheism 11/15/2012

Another week, another legal roundup. I’m not sure whether an upvote or a downvote is due to the University of Louisville Hospital and University Medical Center for its new arrangement with the Catholic Health Initiatives. Financially it will be good. Whether reproductive health care will suffer for it is another issue entirely. There has been [Read More...]

FFRF Sues the IRS to Enforce 501(c)(3) Electioneering Restrictions

Remember last week when I said I’d probably give the Freedom From Religion Foundation an upvote every week? Well… I’m just going to use this graphic for them from now on. They’ve earned it. If I could adorn it with sparkly glitter and blinky neon lights without risking an epileptic seizure or migraine, I’d probably [Read More...]
