Liberals and Personal Responsibility

I got asked this question recently, how do I know that liberals reject the idea of personal responsibility, since I make that claim so often.  And my answer is simple.  Look at the social programs that liberals support, programs that simply cannot exist if personal responsibility does. So what do I mean by personal responsibility?  […]






Excuses Excuses

This has been a long-running problem for me and I just don’t get it at all.  But on the radio this morning, there was a call from a woman who underwent some kind of personal tragedy and she thought that was a good reason to get away without paying her mortgage.  Um… no. See, when […]






Mental Health & the Cops

Some people have ridiculously unrealistic expectations.  In a recent case where the police fatally shot a mentally ill black man who took up a shooting position against them, we now have the idiots on the left screaming that, in addition to enforcing the law, cops ought to be mental health professionals too. Because that makes […]






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 […]






The Untruth Behind Privilege

So I usually try to give a little benefit of the doubt to young people who post stupid things on the Internet, at least if I see them trying to make some sense and apply some logic to their writing.  After all, they just don’t know any better and how are they supposed to learn […]






Progressives Want No Consequences

It always surprises me to watch liberals argue for zero consequences for their actions.  I know it shouldn’t since I’ve seen it so often, but every single time you’d think there’s no way in hell they couldn’t see where they went wrong this time, they always come back and act like victims of their own […]






The Work Ethic and Getting Ahead

Not too long ago, I wrote about someone I used to know who complained that he wasn’t getting ahead and I gave my general suggestions why he wasn’t getting anywhere.  However, I’ve had a couple of conversations since then with people about getting ahead at work and I’m always shocked at the attitudes of the […]






Lazy People Piss Me Off

I recently ran into someone I used to work with about 7-8 years ago.  He spent almost the entire time we were talking complaining how unfair his work was, that he could never get into management, that he could never move up the ladder, but I already knew why that was.  It wasn’t because he […]






I Hate Debating Abortion

This is one of those subjects that I mostly gave up talking about online a long time ago, mostly because you’re never going to convince anyone of anything because everyone, on every side, has a wholly emotional take on the subject matter.  You have the people on the right who can’t discuss abortion without bringing […]






Should Kids Get Scared?

This seems like a pretty good topic for Halloween, so good in fact that I’ll do two posts on Saturday.  I subscribe to a couple of movie review YouTube channels and one of them is the Nostalgia Critic.  He’s usually funny, his reviews are entertaining, but you don’t turn to any of these channels for […]






Getting “Tagged” Out at Tag

The stupidity of liberals never ceases to amaze me.  They are dedicated to taking everything that is fun, everything that kids enjoy, and stripping it from their lives because it doesn’t fit into their liberal agenda.  Take this case, for example, out of Washington State, where the Mercer County School District has banned the game of […]






Following Your Dream

This really isn’t anything spectacular, but I have watched the ever-growing adventures of someone over on a forum I read, someone who clearly has never learned a damn thing about common sense in her life and continues to make every mistake possible and seems utterly clueless why things keep going wrong.  I’m posting this here […]






Debating the Religiously Incredulous

I keep running into people on religious debate boards that are convinced that if they hold a religious position, they have no responsibility at all to defend any of their claims whatsoever, just because they are religious.  Of course, they hold everyone else accountable for answering any questions put to them, but questions they can’t […]






Let’s Stop Being Different

Following the recent demands that the South get rid of the Confederate Flag, I’ve seen a lot of people asking that, in light of the unpopularity of the Confederate Flag, what the South can use to define its individuality and culture and my instant response was… nothing.  Stop pretending that you’re some other culture.  Stop […]






Lack of Basic Responsibility, Politeness and Respect

Okay, I’m going to go on a rant here and I’m not really mad at anyone in particular, I’m just sick and fucking tired of the lack of responsibility and politeness some people and groups have, where they really don’t give a damn about anyone or anything and it fucking shows. Last week, The Atheist […]






Disobedience of the Law

This is pretty much guaranteed to piss off just about everyone who reads it, I’m sure, but I recently got into a discussion on a forum with someone who was incensed over the jailings, beatings and executions of atheist bloggers in Muslim countries. Yes, it is likely that most people reading this agree that the […]






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 […]
