American Life League is Anti-Life

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

(Image from The Pro-Choice Public Education Project) Today I received an email from the American Life League (ALL), one of the numerous extreme freedom-hating organizations run by extreme freedom-haters. The email is titled “STOPP’s Special Report on Planned Parenthood Clinical Trials”. ALL tells us that some medical research is bad, because Planned Parenthood is involved. [...]

Where’s MY Ceiling Cat?

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Atheists don’t have ceiling cats! What you’re looking at is the hole we had to cut in my ceiling on April 6th, when the upstairs neighbor’s drain overflowed. In addition to running down the inside of the walls, it also formed a puddle between the floors and was dripping down through the sheetrock. We had [...]

(From The Daily Irritant) [Update: Welcome to everyone coming over from Crooks and Liars! Why is it every time I write about dildos I get more traffic?] Yesterday, I got a quick mention in Sadly, No! about an old wetsuit/dildo mishap. If you’re one of those readers, welcome!

It’s called [...]

The “Ram”-ification of Charlie Butts

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

I don’t know what is with these fundies and their fascination with the mechanics of homosexual sex. That makes me think there was some sort of weird subconscious expression going on when Charlie Butts titled one of his recent articles “The Financial Ramifications of Same-Sex ‘Marriage’”. Or maybe I’m reading too much into it in [...]

Teabag Czar

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

I actually thought I’d have more time for blogging while living in a hotel. I don’t have all of my home distractions, like the Tivo, a fast & reliable internet connection, and giant plumes of mold spores. I’ve actually spent a lot more time dealing with contractors than I anticipated. That, plus watching the internet [...]

It’s Not a Choice It’s a Consumer

Monday, September 14th, 2009

(Image from God is for Suckers) The Orlando Sentinel (via Crooks and Liars and En Tequila Es Verdad) tells us about a bunch of loons who want a constitutional amendment in Florida and a dozen other states to define a fertilized egg as a person. Not only would this outlaw abortion, but also oral contraceptives [...]
