Jesus weeps at the Pope

I can personally bear witness that poverty is a lot more fun when there’s company and the Pope is making it cool. Especially when he’s pointing out how rigged the game has become. Last week the Pontiff drew praise from all corners when he further noted just a few of the many grotesque inequalities between …

The filibuster is in jeopardy

As luck would have it, one of my family members is in ICU and I have a series of comprehensive medical tests today myself, so I may be scarce for a day or two. In the meantime please consider a small donation to your humble atheist blogger this week. I really need it and no …

It’s beginning to look a lot like the war on Christmas

Ahh the holidays, my favorite time of the year. And while I had hoped to wait until next week to start blegging for holiday reader contributions, circumstances have forced me to hang out that shingle starting today. I’ll have the gruesome details later, but it’s bad: let’s just say my employer doesn’t particularly want someone …

Election day all over again

Screen-Shot-2013-11-04-at-4.07.32-PM

Time is definitely going by faster as I age. It seems like only a couple of months ago that we were electing a President and now it’s that time of year again. There are a number of interesting races worth following, starting the VA governor’s race between Terry McAuliffe and the Cooch. This should be …

Those who fool us

pyramid-kap1

I seem to be feeling a bit better, finally, at least for now. And I came across this image while following links on a social inequality piece a few days ago. It’s from the time of Karl Marx. Boy, they dialed in that religious platform eh? In fact the whole thing It seems quite applicable …

Herman Cain blames Satan

Herman Cain, a blast from the past. Another over-paid pampered CEO whose ego grew so huge he thought he could really be President. Cain was never going anywhere of course, but don’t think for a second he knew that, far from it. These clowns have way more faith in themselves than your average non-pathological person …

People who should be publicly loathed

Yet another data point in the there-is-no-God because she would never let-this-asshole-keep-breathing conjecture. Pity the zillionaires, like poor lil ole AIG head-honcho Robert Benmosche:

Conservatives release hostage demand list

Republicans have leaked their demands for not plunging the nation into economic apocalypse and it’s even more revolting than usual. Would you believe it’s a wish list of tax breaks and cash giveaways to big business and rich people, deregulation, neutering consumer protections for Wall Street, and a big “fuck you” to everyone else?

Pope sets out to make social conservative heads explode

The usual suspects want into your private parts and, now, under your hood

I’m very grateful to those who have chipped in to help get me through the next few weeks. I’m well over halfway to where I need to be. Here’s an example of the kind of obstacles people like me have to deal with. These clowns want to deny benefits to hungry people who can’t find …
