Shifting the Goal Posts on Education

Education is a  subject near and dear to my heart, I think it is essential to a successful society to have its members well educated and knowledgeable of reality.  However, liberals want more, especially when it comes to the poor.  A self-professed liberal recently started ranting that we needed to achieve “equality” in education by […]

#BlackRacistsMatter

Oh look, the left are racist again and nobody is paying any attention!  At Dartmouth College, you got #BlackLivesMatter protesters who invaded the college library and started screaming racial epithets at white students and not only does nothing happen to them, the school pulls all coverage of it off of the website of the Dartmouth […]

Liberals Hate Police

I was having a recent discussion about the case of a school field officer in South Carolina who was called by a teacher to handle a disruptive student, and was fired for brutality.  And you know something?  The whole student body came out in support of the officer, none of them are calling for his […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.12

Ding! Dong! The Witch is Dead! As we celebrate national gay marriage, we pause long enough to talk about a crazy evangelist who wants to send Bibles to starving Iraqi refugees, a teacher who disciplined a second grader for being an atheist, ridiculous southerners standing up for the Confederate Flag and the potential fallout from […]

Why I’m Opposed to School Vouchers

I see a lot of people, typically libertarians and religious kooks, who are pushing for a school voucher system.  For the libertarians, it’s part of their overriding irrational hatred of all things government and for the religious, it’s usually part of their desire to syphon off money and students from the secularly-controlled public school system. […]

8 Educational Myths

I run across all kinds of lists, I’ve examined a lot of them in the past and here is another, 8 claimed educational myths, the answers to which also seem to be myths.  I find it funny that people can look at supposed myths and then get it so entirely wrong on their own. It […]

Enough of This “States’ Rights” Crap

You know, I get sick and tired of watching the idiot libertarians carry around their placards declaring “states’ rights” because we can all see right through it.  The only reason they care about the states at all is because nobody on the national scale takes their politics seriously.  They can’t get their candidates even close […]

The Realities of Minimum Wage

It’s really sad that I have to explain to people how things used to work, back when minimum wage actually did what it was supposed to do. Lots of people who just want to turn the minimum wage into a living wage are far too young to have been around when the things I’m going […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #59

It’s an all-news show this time around, Satan is fooling people with graham crackers, fundamentalists want to run for office to keep kids from crying and Tennessee atheists can distribute books in public schools, but should they? Plus, the Internet kills religions dead, more British people believe in ghosts than gods and Pat Robertson thinks […]

Science in America?

There have been a lot of commercials on TV lately, aired by ExxonMobil, calling for bettering our students in science and math.  I absolutely support that, I think it’s embarrassing that American students rank in such low positions, we ought to be #1, not #25. But you know something?  There are reasons why we are […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #51

Wow, there’s some really bad audio this week, which is too bad because we have a lot of important stuff to talk about.  Bear with us as the Devil messes with Mike’s recording setup as we complain about Vicky Hartzler and he claims that abortions stop a man’s fundamental right to be a father, we cheer […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #49

It’s a non suicidal week mostly, we talk about goblin craziness in Zimbabwe, Ken Ham declaring victory before the debate, exactly as we predicted, a televangelist telling a caller to kill themselves and a satire piece that we take somewhat seriously because it’s not that far from the truth.  We also address listener Iamanatheist’s questions […]

Keep Your Hands To Yourself

Yes, it’s another example of the stupidity of liberals.  Personally, I think the whole “no touching” thing in schools is absurd at higher grades, the idea that nobody ought to ever come into any sort of physical contact with anyone else, for fear that someone might declare it sexual harassment, is idiotic. However, this is […]

What’s Wrong With American Education?

Some people involved in education are just not clear on the concept.  On Constitution Day (September 17), Modesto Junior College student Robert Van Tuinen had a dream, he acquired pamphlet-sized copies of the U.S. Constitution and stood on campus handing them out to interested passers-by.  This sounds like a good idea, after all, our nations is based […]

The “Stupid People Are Stupid” Argument

I get sick and tired of people saying “leave the religious alone, they’re stupid, you can’t stop them from being stupid.”  Well, okay, I can’t hold a gun to their head and make them stop being idiots, the fact is that most of them are just ignorant and uninformed, they don’t know any better and […]
