Joseph Farah – Da’esh and Obama

I generally am amused by Ed Brayton’s stellar coverage of American Wingnuts but this one seems to have managed to limbo under his radar.

Observe as Joseph Farah enlightens us with a rather amusing article which simply doesn’t get how the world works or indeed the situation. Or maybe he does and he prefers the tired old habit of American Conservatives where they simply lie. [Read more…]

Not the Ducks – Suzanne Somers, Quackery and Fearmongering

Suzanne Somers joins a long line of celebrity figures who espouse the evils of universal healthcare with her rather shocking piece on the Wall Street Journal.

It’s shocking to begin with because there is on that page without any sense of irony a little advertisement that says (and this is verbatim)

“Read More From the Experts”. [Read more…]

Evilution I – The Dawkinator

All Power to the Hypno-Dawkins


Part one of today’s posts consists of wailing on the Washington Post’s very own Jordan Sekulow, Lawyer and someone who Just Does Not Get Atheism. Which is perfectly fine, not everyone gets it. It’s a choice to not get it, just like it is a choice to correct his misconceptions with how atheism, evolution and the world works. [Read more…]

A Taste of Things to Come – Rise of the Backstreet Abortionist

American women have lost a great deal of freedom in the past few weeks. All across the USA various states are planning to either reduce funding to bodies such as Planned Parenthood or to try and make abortions more difficult to perform and obtain. South Dakota has passed laws to reduce the period of abortion to just 20 weeks. Women have to undergo a series of unnecessary and traumatic procedures just to decide what to do with their own bodies. Recently we have seen the rise of “stealth” pro-life and the shutting down of clinics by making other laws hard to abide by.

The most recent one being Texas. After the epic filibuster by Wendy Davis, hopes were up that women in Texas would be safe but it was not to be. Rick Perry pushed the bill through. Women in Texas are not allowed to get proper basic healthcare any more.

That’s right. Abortions are considered BASIC Obstetric and Gynaecology. The right to one is basic control over reproduction. Many of my patients have BETTER (read it and weep America) access to contraceptives, real honest sex education, family planning and abortion than Texan women.  [Read more…]

We Don’t Have a Problem. Nope! Not at All!

One of the main problems with the Atheist Community with regards to minorities is the often explicit racism we face.

And none more so in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. While poking through the Facebook Fights that ensued I came across this charming  number from some “atheists”.

Stay Classy

I wonder why there are so few of us when people like this exist within our ranks.

Stay Classy America. Justice was served, but that isn’t something to be happy about.
