Obama on religion

Whatever else he may be — and however much he’s been chastised for being too centrist and too slow in tearing apart the remnants of Bush and Cheney’s near dictatorial regime — he is 100% correct here. I’m sure someone will post suggesting that this makes him evil or something. I’d say he’s pragmatic about …

One of the arguments our favorite Creationists troll par excellence Zdenny has made in recent weeks is that God’s love is perfect, and if you believe in God (and are a True Scotsman), then even a chemical imbalance in your brain will keep you from doing horrible things to your friends, family and children. So …

Sarah Palin’s farewell speech, as read by William Shatner

Well this sure explains a hell of a lot. Sarah Palin’s farewell speech was actually a beat poem; artistic! THAT’S why it made no fucking sense whatsoever!! They’re not supposed to!

Random Crap That’s In My Tabs

Today I will launch a semi-regular (by which I mean a whenever-I-feel-like-it) feature, wherein I itemize a bunch of stuff that’s in the various tabs in my Firefox. I have this habit, you see, of keeping certain tabs open over a number of sessions, either because I want to eventually blog about them, or because …

MS’ duplicitous “olive branch” to Linux is aimed at the backs of our collective skulls

Recently, Microsoft got a good deal of press for having open-sourced its Hyper-V drivers for Linux, releasing them under the GPL v2 even. To anyone paying attention to Microsoft’s earlier rhetoric about the GPL being “un-american“, this is surprising news. To those of us who know what’s actually going on underneath the finely crafted patina …
