And You Shall Know us By Our Love

“They obviously have information on plots to carry out jihad, Oh, but you can’t offend them, can’t make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen. Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.” – Sarah Palin This was at an NRA meeting. And it got cheers.

Easy Mode Blues

I never really understood Alan Keyes. Let’s face facts. The majority of black people in the USA are poor due to the social and economic pressures of American society. Simply declaring racism to be over does not stop racism. And we live in a strange world where we can accept that different coloured horses don’t …

Hags of Lag – Guns don’t kill, Games Do

A lot of what we do as people who play games has harmed our image. A lot of the ideas and stereotypes about us are from the behaviour of our online players. The idea of gamers as nowt but childish, sexist, racist children is harming us. And people have noticed, we aren’t a group of …

In Defence of Jim Carrey

I know I give the rubbery faced anti-vax kook a lot of grief for his beliefs, but this that’s because he deserves it for that. But Ted “Yosemite Sam” Nugent is an idiot. Dear America. Before we start. The correct argument for using guns is “Guns are Cool”. Not that guns somehow reduce your murder …

Hags of Lag – Learn to Report Honestly

The Hollywood Reporter’s taken an “interesting” stance on Adam Lanza (the American School Shooter at Sandy Hook) Note how they blame Videogames (I will point out? There is a reason why we want our gamer population to behave a bit more “sensibly”. Because calling people fags and various racist things makes us an easy fucking …

Hags of Lag – Guns don’t Kill People, Videogames Do

The USA loves scapegoating. The lack of technological acumen within the US government makes them prone to scapegoat things that aren’t really the issue. You shouldn’t blame sexting on mobile phones, you should blame it on a culture that encourages the sexualisation of children and teenagers. And US Senator Lamar Alexander should know better than …

What a Rush – Don’t agree with Idiots, it makes you look like one too

I ran into the link at Patheos on Bill Blankschaen’s blog (Bill in the Blanks). And he agreed with the incredibly moronic comment on Rush Limbaugh’s show. It’s so stupid that I have to warn you to sit down lest the stupidity strike you down with a vicious blow. This is weapon’s grade stupidity, pure …

Yosemite Sam

For many people across the world one of the stereotypes of Americans is “Gun Totting Cowboy”. And now there is even more reason to buy into the Yosemite Sam stereotype… Oh Rick! We are are laughing at you, not with you. Prayer doesn’t stop bullets, if it did we would be building our tanks with …

In Defence of Piers Morgan

You know what? Someone has to do it… So I accept. I have an ulterior motive for this defence of Mr. Morgan… We worked so hard to get rid of him, we don’t want him back… Right… without further adieu, let’s plunge into this latest and greatest moronic pile of tripe courtesy of Larry Elder… …

Hags of Lag – Murder Machine


The NRA had their press conference few days ago. We all kind of knew this was coming, and the NRA generally wait for a bit before unleashing blame on pretty much everything apart from the guns they so love after tragedies like this. I am dealing mainly with the backlash against video games, music and …
