Parental Consent or Parental Contempt?

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

What gives the parents the right to make this decision? (from Baloo) Last night, while you were dreaming of swimming in oceans of dark chocolate or of fluffy bunnies romping through fields of daisies, I was writing this blog article on parental consent laws. No, I don’t mean actually writing it. I was dreaming of […]

Jesse Helms is (Thankfully) Still Dead

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

I was cruising the internet looking for good photography, as I’ve been doing more often lately, and I came across this amusing advertisement from 1989: Jesse Helms was one of the most destructive senators we’ve ever endured. One of his little side projects was trying to defund the National Endowment for the Arts, because the […]

Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Look who has new nesting material! (Ray Comfort’s $100 bill, size comparison.) (Rat not included.) Last weekend, I went to the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. It isn’t the sort of event where I expected to encounter the forces of superstition, fear, and misinformation. Oh what a fool I am. Overall, actually, I was rather […]

Why We Fight

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

I was trying to write a thorough and thoughtful analysis of the decade since 9/11, but I was having trouble distilling all of my thoughts. I’m greatly concerned about the civil liberties we have so eagerly surrendered in exchange for a sense of security. I’ll be covering that issue more often in the future, so […]

Dark Matter Finally Identified!

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

I’ve solved the mystery that astrophysicists have been puzzling over for decades: What is dark matter? That’s easy! It’s Anti-Science! We’re surrounded by it. It’s everywhere! Just look. Here’s a bunch right here! It obviously makes up the majority of the matter in the United States alone; therefore (and I’m extrapolating here), it must make […]

Summer Vacation, 1976

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

“There is a Growing Tendency to Think of Man as a Rationally Thinking Being… Which is Absurd. There is simply no evidence of any intelligence on the Earth.” (YouTube page is here) When I was growing up, my family would sometimes go back to my grandfather’s farm in South Dakota for a couple of weeks […]

A Million Ticking Breiviks

Monday, August 1st, 2011

The “normal” right wing crazies are distancing themselves as much as they can from Anders Breivik. The truth is, he’s a right-wing crazy, and he’s a Christian. Deal with it. This week’s On the Media had a segment on Breivik’s religious beliefs. Give it a listen. They play a clip from Bill O’Reilly, who desperately […]
