The Hateful Tea Party, Its True Origins, and President Obama’s Accomplishments

I was chal­lenged in com­ments on a friend’s Face­book wall yes­ter­day “pro­vide us with a spe­cif­ic exam­ple of Tea Par­ty hate ful (sic) speach and some thing good that Pres­i­dent Oba­ma has done for our coun­try.” The com­menters there also claimed that “THE TEA PARTY HAS NO REPRESENTATIVES IN CONGRESS” and seemed to be under […]

Where do first amendment rights go when you enter a courtroom?

I’m not even talk­ing about the rights of defen­dants or plain­tiffs, but those of peo­ple who are oth­er­wise present in a court­room who aren’t being dis­rup­tive. How much con­trol do judges actu­al­ly need in order to main­tain order in the court­room? At what point are they sim­ply being pet­ty tyrants?

Oh, he was obviously such a terrorist!

Dr Peter Watts, Cana­di­an sci­ence fic­tion writer, beat­en and arrest­ed at US bor­der Obvi­ous­ly, sci­ence fic­tion writ­ers are scary peo­ple. And his rea­son for being in Nebras­ka in the first place (help­ing a friend move) was high­ly ques­tion­able, so it makes total sense that the bor­der patrol would search his vehi­cle. Get­ting out of the […]

Why make an exception for rape and incest?

I always look for­ward to Dr. Mar­ty Klein’s Sex­u­al Intel­li­gence newslet­ters, so I was tick­led to see one in my inbox today. But one of the head­lines took me by sur­prise: End Rape & Incest Excep­tions to Stu­pak Abor­tion Ban. Dr. Klein always has excel­lent analy­ses, and this one is no excep­tion. If you’re against […]

Miscellany

I lost track of who orig­i­nal­ly linked to what, so I can’t cred­it them prop­er­ly. But thank you to who­ev­er they all were, any­way! Filed under “anoth­er rea­son I’m proud to be a home­school­er”: Cal­i­for­nia court rules that pri­vate school can oust les­bian stu­dents. I do under­stand that it’s a pri­vate reli­gious school and that […]

GAH! Facebook request

If you have a Face­book account AND an under­stand­ing of the fact that “pro-choice” does­n’t mean, “Ohmigod! Lock up any­body who does­n’t want to have an abor­tion! Force every­one to pro­vide them! Spend ALL the gov­ern­men­t’s mon­ey on them!” would you pret­ty please help me try to get through to an old friend? Yes, I’m […]

How do YOU feel about companies “promoting homosexuality” ? Tell the AFA!

Actu­al­ly, they don’t want to know how you feel. They want a very care­ful­ly select­ed group of peo­ple to answer their loaded ques­tions as desired, so they can claim, as usu­al, that they did research that showed that “every­body” hates queers. They ask: Should cor­po­ra­tions be pro­mot­ing homo­sex­u­al­i­ty? Sev­er­al cor­po­ra­tions are now sup­port­ing the homosexual […]

Procreate or else!

Ok—if het­ero­sex­u­al mar­riage is so sacred because it takes a man and a woman to pro­cre­ate, those het cou­ples had best be prov­ing that’s why they’re mar­ried, right? Or at least, that’s the log­ic behind a bal­lot mea­sure pro­posed in Wash­ing­ton state. Pro­po­nents of same-sex mar­riage have intro­duced a bal­lot mea­sure that would require het­ero­sex­u­al cou­ples to […]
