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 […]






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 […]






Unsupported Liberal Claims of Racism

Liberals and the regressive left spend a lot of time claiming that there is institutional racism out there, but can never actually present any evidence to back it up.  Oh, they throw around a ton of claims and anecdotal evidence showing that blacks generally perform worse than whites, but they can never make the demonstrable […]






Replacing Religion

Not long ago, Jack over on Atheist Revolution wrote a post on replacing religion.  It’s an interesting question, but one that I’ve never really felt necessary.  It’s like saying “what other cancer would you like to replace your lung cancer with?”  Well, none, of course.  That doesn’t mean that we can’t have some kind of […]






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 […]
