Why Are People Unethical?

So I come across this random discussion going on about a really, really minor automobile accident that happened in a parking lot, someone backed into this guy’s car and basically barely tapped it, causing absolutely no visible damage whatsoever. So the guy says he took the car to a mechanic and the mechanic said there […]

Liberals are Horrible People

No, not all liberals, but certainly a considerable number, especially on the far fringes of the political left.  Why?  Because in a recent discussion about colleges uninviting conservative speakers, these people, as is no real surprise, turned right to victim blaming. Of course they did. No, colleges shouldn’t allow conservative speakers because apparently, it’s somehow […]

Two Kinds of Theists

The more that I think about it, the more I realize that there are really two distinct kinds of theists in the world.  You have the fanatics and the idiots.  On the one side, you have the people who believe what they believe and nothing in the world is ever going to stop them from […]

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 […]
