The Dumb, It Burns!

Every time I start to think that social media is at all worthwhile, something like this happens.  So I’m hanging out over on Gab.ai, which is sort of a free-speech Twitter replacement of sorts.  I knew that the far-right crazies were there, just like they are over on Minds, but I hadn’t run into any […]

Why Are Theists So Stupid?

I got into a short squabble with an irrational theist today whose answer to any given question is “the Bible provides all the answers”.  It doesn’t matter what you’re talking about, the Bible is the one and only source of all wisdom, ever.  It doesn’t make a difference if you point out that she’s just […]

Why Free College is So Problematic

Rhode Island has become the fourth U.S. state to offer free community college to all comers, bringing cries of support from the political left and anyone who understands the problem with this roll their eyes.  And there is a problem with this, one that nobody on the political left seems to understand.  If everyone has […]

The Solution to Having No Time

I can’t tell you how many people I see, both online and in my personal life, who constantly complain that they have no time to get the things that they need to do, or that they want to do, done.  They whine long and loud that life is just too busy, that there isn’t enough […]

Talking to Libertarian Idiots

This is nothing new, I’ve complained about it before, but as with most things, there is nothing new under the sun, just the same old stupidity everywhere.  This time, back on that old canard of “natural rights”, yet another libertarian went bat-shit insane, to the point that most people were just pointing and laughing at […]

Dealing With Death: The Pet Edition

The absurd fear of death is everywhere, I just managed to piss off a bunch of people after someone posted that John Hurt had died and I said “people tend to do that”.  I also wondered when they were going to start with the incessant whine that “2017 is the worst year ever”, like they […]

Memes are Stupid

I know I’ve said this before, but memes are stupid.  And yes, I know that the stupid pictures with text like the one to the left aren’t theoretically memes in the Dawkins sense, but that’s how they’re treated and labeled most often.  So that’s what I’m going with. Memes are what happens when you’re too […]

Independence Day in a Divided Nation

I’m posting this on an off-day for Bitchspot, but that’s just how the 4th of July falls this year.  I wanted to say a couple of things about how this no longer feels like a national holiday because this no longer feels like a nation.  We have become so completely ideologically deadlocked, with both sides […]

I’m Not a Hypocrite

I ran across a post over on Godless Mama’s blog, where she describes a number of things, apparently that she’s seen, that she describes as hypocritical.  I’ll be the first one to agree that hypocrisy runs rampant online and that people from all groups can and often are guilty of it.  That said, and I […]
