The Stupidity of Reporting Comments

This doesn’t happen as often as it used to, but there are still people who will report my own comments on my own blog to IntenseDebate, as if they are totally unaware that the report comes right back to me.  I am the only one who can delete a comment.  IntenseDebate cannot.  So you’re asking […]






What is Wrong With These Crazy People?

Now as everyone knows, I’ve been checking out Minds as a new social media platform, not because I have any love for social media, but because a lot of people have been abandoning places like Twitter and Facebook and moving over there and these are, what I thought, were “my people”. But wow, was I […]






Can’t Change The Crazy

I don’t know why I bother sometimes.  I was having a recent discussion about religion and someone popped in and said that it was a complete waste of time to complain about the failures of religion because the religious will just be more motivated to cling to their beliefs anyhow. What’s the point, other than […]






Everyone Isn’t Like Me

I can’t tell you how sick I am of hearing this, but when I end up in a discussion about personal responsibility and I bring up the fact that I can and do live within my means, that I do make responsible decisions and that I do all of the things that my personal philosophy […]






The Libertarian Lunacy Returns

While there’s a lot of drama going on with the Trump victory and the whiny, crying Clinton supporters, there’s one more thing that nobody should be surprised at, the complete and utter failure of the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.  Anyone with half a clue knew that he’d lose and by a ridiculous margin, but you […]






Reality Has to Mean More than Fantasy

I came across a debate today, one that I wasn’t involved in, but you had a crazy libertarian on one side proclaiming that natural rights were real, so there, and on the other, you had a skeptic who kept asking him a lot of the same questions that I ask regularly.  Questions like “how do […]






Sometimes You Just Know It’s Crazy

Sometimes, it’s so blatant that it’s obvious, that someone is talking out of their crazy ass and nothing they have to say has any validity, but sometimes, you just get this feeling in the back of your skull that this person has some serious issues, even though they start out sounding somewhat sane. So anyhow, […]






Crazy Celebrity Death Cults

Hey, guess what, Harper Lee died.  So what?  Yeah, that’s what I said, but apparently there are a lot of people who are just totally broken up about it because someone who once did something might have finally died of old age.  Unfortunately, these people act like it’s a national tragedy. Why?  I will never […]






The Stupidity of Gun Control

This kind of stuff is rampant among the left, and I know that I’m saying a lot about the left recently, but a lot of this garbage has come floating to the surface recently.  This is probably no more true when it comes to the gun banning arguments that the liberals make, particularly following well-publicized […]






That Old Time Libertarian Religion

If there’s anything that doing a YouTube channel has taught me, it’s that libertarians are crazy.  In every comment I get from them, it becomes harder and harder to tell the difference between them and fundamentalist Christians.  There is nothing but blind faith and empty assertions in their ideas and when you point that out, […]






Mohammad on Busses?

Pamela Geller, the same one who put on the art show in Garland Texas that was shot up by ISIS-backed Muslim terrorists wants to see the artwork from the show gracing public busses and subway stations.  She wants to see depictions of Mohammad shown far and wide as a way of proving to the extremists […]






Liberals Don’t Understand Mythology

Every time I think that the craziness of radical liberals has gone as far as it can go, I find an even more bizarre story of lefty loons gone out of their minds.  Strap in, here we go again. The Washington Post reports that students at Columbia University are demanding that classes on Greek mythology […]

What’s Wrong With Being Stupid?

This is really why I’m increasingly convinced that having religious debates is pointless. I recently had a discussion with someone who self-described as a moderate theist, they refused to even say what kind of theist they were, although I’m relatively certain they are some kind of new-agey Christian type.  So we start talking about evidence […]






Shallow Consumers: The Car Edition

A couple of months ago, I agreed to join a year-long study of American consumers on automobiles, answering questions about what is important to me about modern cars and the direction that the automotive industry is going.  It takes me a couple of minutes a week, usually answering one or two short questionnaires about various […]






Wanting the Mutually Exclusive

I’ve been debating online on various forums for a very, very, very long time.  Mostly, I stick to general purpose forums, not dedicated to politics or religion, because it gives me a one-size-fits-all solution, with members from all walks of life and subjects across the board. You have the far right neo-cons and the far-left-liberals, […]






Public Opinion Polling Stupidity

I know I’ve mentioned in the past that I, from time to time, engage in some public opinion polling.  It lets me make my opinions known to companies and I score a couple of Amazon gift certificates now and then.  It’s really win-win.  Unfortunately, recently, I got a “warning” from one of the polling places, […]






History Isn’t Sexist

I recently had a kerfluffle with an Internet liberal feminist, although even though she self-identified as a feminist first and foremost, it could have been with any number of social justice warriors on the far left.  I responded to her demand that we as a society do more to recognize and celebrate the contributions that […]






Acceptance vs. Approval

I know I’ve said this before, probably because I’ve said just about everything there is to say about religion and politics before, but once again, I came across something on YouTube that made me want to present the simple reality to the incredulous once again.  In fact, I came across this on a couple of […]






Religious Admissions of Failure

I really get sick and tired of this kind of thing, but it is the final wheezes of a failed position.  How many theists have said to you, after going through a long debate where they have never been able to back up a single thing except through professions of faith, that they’re going to […]






Creepy Chaplains are Creepy

I just had to throw this quick post up because yesterday, I met a friend for lunch and while we were out, we passed by a local hospital that had a weekly farmer’s market in their parking lot.  I’m assuming that it’s weekly because the signs said “Wednesday Farmer’s Market”.  So we stopped and bought […]






The Crazies Are Everywhere!

Just so people don’t say that I only attack the religious crazies, something that’s patently untrue if they’ve ever read the blog, here’s a story about a crazy man who attacked a woman’s car, dressed in medieval armor and carrying a sword, because he truly believed himself to be a high elf battling the evil […]






Logic Escapes Christians

I know this is like a broken record, but lots of theists out there, Christians particularly in this example, just don’t have the slightest clue what logic is.  I had someone argue that there is an objective morality because, assuming God exists, then such a morality is a characteristic of God. Says who? Let’s look […]






Avoiding Ferguson No More

I’ve purposely not addressed the Ferguson shooting, I’ve carefully avoided talking about Michael Brown and Darren Wilson and the whole nonsense that arose following both the shooting itself and the Grand Jury announcement.  For one, it doesn’t matter, it’s just been children acting like children and people taking advantage of a situation to riot and […]
