There’s a Problem With God’s Sequencing Here

We’re all used to very religious people latching on to a coincidence and claiming the hand of God (or other deity of choice). But this is the clearest example of muddled thinking I’ve come across in a very long time. Let’s set the scene first: INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis woman believes a higher power helped …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. One step closer to my dream of seeing Rove handcuffed and marched off to jail: Three weeks ago, Karl Rove blew off a congressional subpoena and refused to testify on the scandal surrounding the politicization of the Justice Department.

The Right-Wing Death Machine

I’ve been meaning to do several posts: one on the shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, one on the disturbing rhetoric of violence and death that so obsesses the neocons, and an article in the National Review that spews hate even while it’s preaching tolerance.

Gracias, Gracias Mil Veces

(Oh, dear lord, I didn’t realize the word for “times” looks almost exactly like “feces.” Silly español. Don’t take that the wrong way.) I just wanted to give you all a huge thank you, En Tequila Es Verdad style. I expected a few comments from the regulars, not the flood from new, old and lurkers …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Make sure your nitro pills are handy and you have doctors standing by: Bush & McCain are wrong. Shocking, I know: Back in 2004, Bush told a Florida audience, “[John] Kerry said, and I quote, ‘The war on terror is far less of a military operation and far more …

Soliciting Opinions

I feel like I’m getting stuck in a rut. Religion, politics, politics, religion, tiny bit o’ science, pinch o’ writing, religion, politics, lather, rinse, repeat. Beating up on right-wing fuckwits is losing its lustre. The more I beat, the longer the queue gets. I’m beginning to think they like it, the sick little masochists. So …
