Another ridiculous poll

The Montgomery, Alabama police have pious plan to send out priests along with the police on emergency calls. “Trained” priests, apparently, which means they’re going to be spending money on completely unqualified people who can provide no material assistance to tag along with the police. Why? Because it makes someone in the chain of command …

Validating religious symbolism…with a poll


This is a cross in Middleboro, Massachusetts. It’s on public land in the town. Would you believe that the people of the town stupidly looked at that and decided there was no conflict at all between a great big Christian symbol that says OBEY WORSHIP and secular government? None at all. Let’s just pretend that …

A poll…by AXE? Really?

This was entirely predictable. Axe, the deodorant company with the really horrible sexist ads, is doing something admirable, sponsoring a contest to send people to a space camp in Florida. They’re doing it with a poll, unfortunately (please, people, just stop! Popularity contests are not measures of merit!), and the one woman in the Malaysian …

I think this poll has already been trashed

909,000 votes? I think the robots (who are all atheists, obviously) have already slammed into this poll. You may still use your feeble fleshy appendages to click on it anyway, puny human. Do you think the words “under God” should be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance? Yes 90% No 10%

An acupuncture poll

Every time I despair at the stupidity rampant in my own country, along comes the UK to reassure me that it is a worldwide phenomenon. Does acupuncture work?  51% Yes  49% No Jebus. Seriously?

Mississippi madrasas…with a poll

The reminiscences of right-wing kooks are so very different from mine. As a young child I remember very vividly reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and also morning prayer. When you talk about the “good old days” those are visions that come to my mind.  Of course those are things that have been taken away but …

A poll for the Irish gay folk

Big ol’ shameless liars with a poll for Jesus


Every once in a while, someone chastises me for calling someone a liar. It’s rude, they say, and you don’t know if they’re intending to utter a mistruth, so you can’t really call them “liars”. Oh, fuck that noise. When you get patent phonies like the Christians of Evansville, you have to call it as …

Go frack this poll

The Ventura County Star has a poll up on hydraulic fracturing in California: How concerned are you about fracking (hydraulic fracturing) in California? I have little or no concern about it. I’m concerned about its effects on water and the environment. I’m concerned about a possible link to earthquakes. I’m concerned that overregulation of it …
