They just don’t want bloggers to be anonymous, and they want records of everything they say. It’s not so there’s unspoken pressure on them to not criticize the government that is becoming more oppressive by the day…why would you ever think that? Widely known as the “bloggers law,” the new Russian measure specifies that any [Read More…]
You want to see an entire universe of unhinged rambling? Here it is, direct from a member of the House of Representatives: We only want marriage for select individuals and people are calling us intolerant! Waaaaaaaaaaah! So much wrong here. Gohmert starts by saying he loves gay people, yet he wants them to have fewer [Read More…]
Wyoming’s state Board of Education just collectively told the world’s scientists, “Sorry, we know the science better than you do.” The Wyoming Board of Education decided recently that the Next Generation Science Standards need more review after questions were raised about the treatment of man-made global warming. Board President Ron Micheli said the review will [Read More…]
Orly Taitz running for CA Attorney General, would prosecute Obama for lack of birth certificate if elected.
If Orly Taitz were in Texas, I’d cry into my pillow every night for fear she’d be elected to some position of power. But since she’s in California I can just giggle at how flamboyantly ridiculous she is. Every time she squeals that President Obama isn’t a real American I can chuckle and move on. [Read More…]
Fucker shouldn’t be allowed to run for garbageman because he doesn’t understand how constitutional protections work: Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says lawmakers in his home state should impeach a judge who struck down the state’s gay marriage ban, saying the judge ignored the will of voters. In a blog post on his political action committee website, Huckabee on Sunday criticized [Read More…]
They say that brevity is the soul of wit, and this single sentence says so much: And even if you do take the bible literally when it hurts people, you’re a bad person if you obey. No good person accepts a wicked master. If someone gives a cruel command that you follow, you are just [Read More…]
There will be a LOT of posts today. Lots of stuff going on. So take a deep breath and drink in this pile of adorable: it’s a tiger, a lion, and a bear who were rescued from a captured drug dealer and were raised together. And for less feral fare, here’s a husky who definitely [Read More…]
I wrote a piece last month about a brave student who, after Christian parents convinced his school to ban an award-winning book because it had a line about masturbation, began distributing free copies of the book. Shortly thereafter I got wind of another book banning at a school district in Tennessee because the book The Curious [Read More…]
I cannot type the word “Michael” because I’m engaged to a woman named Michaelyn. Even when typing that last sentence I initially typed “Michaely” before back-spacing. Anyway, Michael (not Michaely) Sam’s jersey is the second highest-selling jersey among draftees at the moment: Outsports reported jerseys for Sam, who was the draft’s 249th pick, are currently second in [Read More…]
This article actually made me sympathize with some of the things Mormon missionaries must go through. I’ve known a few missionaries who no longer believed but who went on their mission anyway because it was expected of them by their family. The first thing I didn’t know: you pay to be a missionary! You can’t [Read More…]
This is silly, but not wholly unexpected: At least one member of the Arkansas House of Representatives has confirmed that he is pursuing impeachment against Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza following his ruling Friday (May 9) that overturned the state’s ban on gay marriage. But the speaker of the Arkansas House has vowed to block any [Read More…]
Michael Sam is the fist openly gay football player in division 1 history, and the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL. Before we get into any of my thoughts on this, I want to show you something absolutely beautiful. Here is Sam’s reaction after he got the call from the Rams [Read More…]
Near Fayetteville, AR and want to get same-sex married? This lady will help you get it before the stay.
Got this message on facebook last night: So Laura Phillips is going to be at the Washington County courthouse to marry people. Arkansas can legally marry same sex couples now (although for how long this will last is unsure), and she wants to make sure that someone is there to help people complete the legal [Read More…]
It is unfair that humility is part of being the perfect mother, because it often deprives my mother of the pride she deserves for the devotion and care with which she raised my brother and me. I don’t know many people who can claim that their parents are their best friends, but my mother is [Read More…]
