Why Third Parties Fail

I see a lot of people complaining about the two-party system in America, saying that it’s failed the American people and we ought to have more parties.  They forget that we have a ton of third parties, those parties have simply failed to gain any significant backing.  While some people trot out the conspiracy thinking […]

The Libertarian Delusion

I always find it funny how delusional ardent libertarians are.  They are supremely convinced that some day, the whole world will just magically adopt their political ideology and when it doesn’t happen, there must be some grand conspiracy afoot keeping them from their rightful place at the head of the line.  This is nothing new, […]

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 […]
