Christian Misses the Meaning of Santa Claus

Richard Land is pissed that even if you celebrate Christmas, you don’t really mean it in the way HE wants. It is apparently terrible being a Christian during Christmas. From Richard Lang’s prospective as a good little Xian who goes to church twice a week, Santa is just another Golden Calf and we are all …

Congress Sets Record

The new gold standard in disdain. Congress’ approval rating has sunk to a new all-time record low, with just 11% of Americans approving of the job our elected legislature is doing. Which means Congress’ supporters have dwindled down to blood relatives and their favorite lobbyists, thankfully for the congressmen and women there are so many …

The Endorsement Newt Doesn’t Want

GingrichAdulteryBilboard

Adultery centric dating site, Ashley Madison, endorses the cheating-prone candidate. In my benign travels around the internet (read: porn), I have stumbled across occasional advertisements for Ashley Madison, an internet dating service geared to those who are already in a relationship.

The Wrong Route

its-a-trap

Scientology tries to weasel its way into the minds of the disenfranchised during the year of protest. The Route Out. On the surface, this website appears to be nothing special.

The Cost of Free Speech

Wisconsin Administration drags its feet on controversial new protest law. We Americans are having to slowly adjust to the uncomfortable reality that money now equals free speech and that the more money you have, the more “free” speech you can use to push the opposition into irrelevancy.

Christmas is for Everyone, Except for Obama

Right Wing attacks President Obama for relatively modest holiday vacation. Presidential holiday vacations are usually both uninteresting and long. Bush and Regan both routinely took 20 or more days of vacation during the holiday season, which is more than most people get, but less than others. For example, I get 30 days this year (Woohooo …

WoW’s 99% Feels the Hurt Too

A study of the economy of the world’s most popular MMO, World of Warcraft, reveals income inequality in the virtual world. I used to play wow. A lot. When college ended and it was time to move on to “real life”, I managed to sell my virtual character for real money, to the tune of …

Islamaphobia and Islamists

The devil is in the details. One last post before getting out of dodge. I have written several articles about Islamaphobia in American, the Arab Spring, and Islam inside the Middle East. Sometimes earing the ire of the Far-Right for my views. But today I took some time to watch fellow FtB blogger Maryam Namazie …
