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 […]

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 […]

Fear of Responsibility

Not too long ago, Vjack over on Atheist Revolution posted an article asking whether health care was a right or a privilege.  So I stupidly said “neither, it’s a responsibility” and the inevitable liberal dogpile began, along with the inevitable name-calling and moral degradation that inevitably comes from the left. But that doesn’t change anything, […]

What Happened to Customer Service?

I really have no idea, but customer service, that standard given to customers by proprietors of businesses, has gone straight through the floor in recent years.  There was a time when Nordstrom-level of service was the goal, today, far too many companies just don’t care anymore and that struck home twice in recent days. About […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

My Name is Lucifer! A woman prays behind the wheel, causing grevious harm to a grandmother, Michelle Bachmann celebrates the end of the world, the Duggars want back on TV to counsel sexually abused teens, more religious states are accepting the superiority of secular society and we talk about the stupid names that parents give […]

The Bitchspot Report Podcast #2.16

Is He In You? In a longer than usual show, we look at pharmacists who are no longer allowed to deny medications on religious grounds, a Nepalese boy who is murdered by Hindus for magical reasons, the Mayor of Hawkins, Texas is an idiot and doesn’t understand the separation of church and state and Iran […]

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 […]

Explaining Responsibility

While I was writing the post on Gary Johnson’s platform, discussions raged on about libertarianism and libertarian positions. I got into somewhat of a fight over the difference between freedom and responsibility and while my libertarian counterpart refused to see reason, I wanted to go into a bit of detail here because I think it […]

The Problems with School Vouchers

Libertarians tend to push a school voucher solution to the problems of education but very few of them have bothered to think it through.  I think it’s because there’s a very fundamental problem in libertarian thinking.  What they’re really saying is “give me mine, fuck you.”  They’re only thinking of the individual in the equation, […]
