The man in FL who gave his AR-57 to the local police said (paraphrasing) “I’m a member of the most hated demographic. I’m a conservative middle class white male…. I hate to say it, but no gun reform will happen unless my demographic gets on board,” and I agree 100%. Come the hell on, we’ve … More Letter to Conservative Christians – Real talk.
In the midst of, and perhaps because of, the age of information comes the age of misinformation: conspiracy theories that can’t be disproven, red herrings, ad hominem attacks, fantasy, and flat out lies. No one embodies the misinformation age better than Donald Trump. But I don’t want to talk about him. He has enough of our … More The Misinformation Age
All this time, I’ve avoided talking about Donald Trump for the most part. I’m not going to expound upon the reasons why he shouldn’t be president; scores of other editors, bloggers, and Facebook jockeys already have done so, and in a better fashion than I could ever do. But just in case you missed it, … More In Case You Missed It…
Apparently, getting all up in other people’s business is good business. Religious laws aimed at if or when we can buy beer, how many spouses you can have, whether or not you can divorce them and under what circumstances, how you conduct yourself sexually – telling other people their business has historically been good business. … More And Another Thing…
Just now, on CNN, some conservative legislator from NC just said (repeatedly), “it’s not extreme to say that if you’re a boy, you use the boy’s bathroom” and vice versa. It IS extreme to make such a grand sweeping statement that decides for millions of people how they should live their lives, which is, they … More To Pee Or Not To Pee
“There are millions of people in this country that are tired of being looked down upon.” -Marco Rubio “The Obama economy is a disaster, Obamacare is a trainwreck, and the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind – the whole world is on fire.” – Ted Cruz “We will have so much winning if I … More Clash of the Candidates
There’s so much going on right now, so much to write about! The primaries are in full swing (go Bernie!), Trump has come up from a trashy entertainment wanna-be politician to a trashy entertainment wanna-be serious presidential candidate, Justice Scalia has died, and now Nancy Reagan has passed away. Let’s address the passing of Saint … More Paying Respects
I was about 9 years old, sitting in church, when the pastor asked all the children to come to the front. Then he proceeded to tell us abortion was wrong, so evil, and that the world was full of these wicked people. Then he told us to return to our parents and thank them for … More Be Pro-Compassion.
I filed a petition to change my name yesterday. I am an adult child who is disowning her father. If I tried, I could count how many times I’ve seen him my entire life. The last time I saw my dad in person was in 2003. This name change started 2 years ago when my … More A New Name
I’ve considered myself an ally of the LGBT community for years. And it’s easy enough to do, once you get past the “what the hell” and the “ew, anal sex!” and the “is that a him or a her” reactions. Cis-hetero people don’t know what to think and they need to be educated. We don’t … More What It Means To Be An Ally
