Freedom vs. Responsibility

I’ve been having an ongoing discussion with a libertarian who seems convinced, as most of them seem to be, that there’s some grand conspiracy to keep everyone from acknowledging the supremacy of the libertarian position.  This is crazy conspiracy theorist talk.  You’d think they could see how ridiculous it is. But it’s also funny, he […]






Hillary’s Health

I’m not saying I don’t trust Hillary.  Wait a minute, I don’t trust Hillary, not for a second, she’s proven herself to be nothing but a manipulative lying bitch about every subject under the sun, so it comes as no surprise that when her side is saying she’s got pneumonia, I don’t buy it and […]






Slowing Down… Maybe

Not too long ago, Jack, over on Atheist Revolution, wrote a post about slowing down his blog output.  He’s running out of steam and frankly, so am I.  I’ve been doing this blog for more than 10 years and during that time, I have posted, between here and my other blog, every single day during […]






Voting For Those You Hate

I hate both Trump and Clinton.  I detest them both with a passion.  Never before, at least in recent memory, have both the Democrats and Republicans picked candidates that are so utterly reprehensible to the American voting public. Yet you really have to hold your nose and pick one of them, just to keep the […]






Irrational Rationalizations

Once again, the absurdity of irrational rationalizations strikes, in a ridiculously common way. Now that Mother Teresa has been granted sainthood, the crazy religious are out in force, attacking anyone who criticizes the life and beliefs of Mother Teresa.  I wrote about this a very long time ago and got pretty much the same reaction […]






Is a Fetus Human?

I usually don’t engage in abortion debates because I find them to be horribly overly-emotional affairs, with people on both sides wailing and gnashing their teeth and nothing ever getting intellectually resolved.  Debating abortion with theists is usually about as pointless as debating religion because they are psychologically incapable of changing their minds, or even […]






YouTube is Still Stupid

A couple of months ago, I wrote how I had received a “community standards strike” on my channel on YouTube, thus causing me not to be able to upload videos longer than 15 minutes.  I appealed the decision, of course, because I was completely in the right, but it took them almost 3 months to […]






#BLM Doesn’t Understand Law Enforcement

The mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, just had a meeting with the local chapter head of Black Lives Matter, who handed out a list of demands regarding law enforcement. Among their demands were: 1. Better police training. 2. De-escalation training. 3. Reduced funding to Atlanta PD. 4. End special operation to reduce gun crimes. 5. […]






The Last of the Atheist Podcasts

Well, that does it.  I have just deleted the last of the atheist podcasts I listened to, and for the same reason as all of the others.  The ludicrous liberal bent has just made it all but impossible to listen to them any longer.  So to Cognitive Dissonance, a not so fond farewell. And it’s […]






Horror Show Monday: Easter Bombing

Hey, what’s the religion of peace been up to lately?  Oh yeah, murdering lots of people!  This time out, the Taliban launched a deadly attack on Easter Sunday near Islamabad, Pakistan when a suicide bomber, intentionally targeting Christians, erupted, killing 69 people and injuring more than 340 others. But yeah, Islam doesn’t hurt anyone. Pakistani […]






Anti-Suicide Fanaticism

Every once in a while, the subject of suicide comes up and it just leaves me shaking my head.  It was in response to someone who is a member of a gun club.  Some young woman went to the club, rented a gun for the range and promptly used it to kill herself.  And, of […]






Picking on ChristianMingle?

In a recent court case, a judge ordered the owners of ChristianMingle, a “Christian” dating service, to allow same-sex couples to use the service, even though homosexuality is a sin according to a lot of Christians.  Of course, this immediately caused Christian whiners to come out of the woodwork, screaming that this is blatant discrimination […]
