Month: March 2012
For Conservatives to find this couple’s twitter account. This is a horrific story. The short version, a father is playing basketball in their yard. His neighbor is outside shooting his gun. He asks his neighbor to please refrain from firing said gun while kids are out in the area playing. Man goes … Continue Reading Wow…Can’t Wait
Whole Lot Different
Right wing bloggers are in a tizzy. Why isn’t the story of Allen Coon getting the same outcry as the Trayvon Martin case?! It is a horrific story…two young men chased after Allen, doused him with gasoline and set his head on fire (it apparently was a fireball-thankfully not a … Continue Reading Whole Lot Different
I Am Amused-Meaning Amazed and Horrified
It impresses me the grand disconnect for their supporters that the same folks crying out about the government forcing you to get a product you don’t want and the grand infringement on freedom that is “Obamacare” are the same folks pushing legislation to force women to get mandatory ultra-sounds on … Continue Reading I Am Amused-Meaning Amazed and Horrified
Not The Victim
So, now we find some trying to make Trayvon out to be a thug. Zimmerman kills a kid and the police investigate the victim. Trayvon has no history of violence. He was suspended for grafitti. Everyone who knows him says they cannot believe he was the instigator. Zimmerman claims he … Continue Reading Not The Victim
*Sigh* Alan Moore.
So, I finally got around to reading this article. At around eight pages, it is a doozy. It is also a bit of a frustrating read. Moore makes some strong and very valid points about both the industry and the nature of Watchmen. There is no doubt to the long … Continue Reading *Sigh* Alan Moore.

Because We Need Them To Tell Us How To Live
So… Rick Santorum would use his Presidentcy to tackle Pornography. He believes the Obama administration favors Pornographers over Children. Mind you, he is not talking about child porn. He is talking about porn made for adults and starring adults. A common complaint from conservatives is their disdain for the nanny … Continue Reading Because We Need Them To Tell Us How To Live
Ryan Dobson or a Magic Eight-ball
Apparently, Ryan Dobson believes facts are not important before making grand judgements about others. Apparently, he believes it is important that Christians know as little as possible about a situation before they make a statement about it. But then, Focus on the Family is not a Christian Organization…it is a … Continue Reading Ryan Dobson or a Magic Eight-ball
Is It Something In Their Coffee?
So, Big Hollywood, true to the spirit of Andrew Breitbart has claimed Game Change was literally made for the sole purpose of derailing a Sarah Palin run for President in 2012. Part of their logic is she was kind of maybe going to run. She kept saying she really was … Continue Reading Is It Something In Their Coffee?
It’s A Gassssss…
Gas prices are rising. A couple months back, someone shoved a statistic in my face that gas has risen 83% since President Obama took office. It seemed hard to believe, especially amid claims in the article (from a conservative website) of the average gas price of $1.87 at the time … Continue Reading It’s A Gassssss…
Changing the Game
So, last weekend, HBO aired the premier of Game Change. A very loose adaption of the book Game Change by Mark Halperin and JohnHeilmann, but highly entertaining. The main focus of the book was the Democratic primary (specifically the race between Clinton and Obama).* The film was the chronicles of … Continue Reading Changing the Game
When Did Lies and Misinformation Become a Virtue?
I was impressed with how the Fluke Debacle morphed over the last week. It was bizarre, really. What was a young woman noting that reproductive health was something worthy of coverage by Healthcare Plans somehow became a Young whore wanting the government to pay her for sex. It was not … Continue Reading When Did Lies and Misinformation Become a Virtue?
Oh, Kirk Cameron, Yer So Funny…
You know…I like the responses from folks here, they are far kinder than Cameron was. Go, Stephen Baldwin! Just Something I’ve Observed(I don’t mean this happened here-just I have seen this in action): It’s funny, some Christians use harsh and insulting talk about gays, but when people respond, even playfully, … Continue Reading Oh, Kirk Cameron, Yer So Funny…
