There are days (like today) when I just can't stand it. I want to wrap my bitter little hands around his throat for believing in such a murderous, sadistic concept. (Er...) How he can be so fucking idiotic and such a smart person at the same time? How do we live under the same fucking roof?
I just told him that Israel was was horrible and that the US is wrong to support Israel just because his precious Jebus might come back, and then I stormed out of the room. So, of course, he's mad… Continue
More than just about any other single value, I want my kids to get the importance of dissent. I want them to be willing to voice a reasoned minority opinion and to encourage the same in others.
When we moved to the red-state South, I knew (blue to the core as we are) that at some point we'd end up taking our lumps from one majority or another. No big brous-haha so far, just some minor fish-out-of-water moments: Laney having the occasional… Continue
Reading up on news blog posts always leaves me upset lately.
Attacks against women, secularism, and nearly anyone with common sense abound everywhere. I know that ignorance is not bliss, but jeez, being constantly reminded that the world is full of such crazies sucks.

I'm perhaps a little too worried about this, but I found it rather horrifying. I've heard of similar cults, but this is the first I've heard of this one. I know it's a long article, but read some of it, at least. I think it's good for us to be reminded of just how crazy people can get.
I am sure we are all familiar with the vast array of scams on the internet but this, in particular, caught my eye.
When I opened my inbox this morning I was greeted with this:
Being an inquisitive sort, I went to visit their site and see what they are about. The first thing to strike me as odd was the lack of any link to tell you what this organization is about. They begin, immediately, asking for personal information without so much… Continue
Being as I live about 20 minutes from the Xcel Center I can't help but go to the Republican Convention next week. I've mentioned in the past that I hope to get some good audio to use for the show (I'll definitely have pictures if nothing else) and I plan to stick to that.
I've been poking around the web and making phone calls to find out who's going to be where and at what time. It seems 11am Monday, on the steps of the capital, is the place to be. A number of groups have coordinated… Continue
As a feminist and as a Democrat I was so amazed by both Obama's and Hillary Clinton's historic campaigns. I voted for Obama, but I would have supported Clinton if she had won and definately look forward to the day that I see a woman president. With that said, I'll be proud to vote for Obama and Biden, especially because of their support for women's rights.
Well, this morning, we all learned that McCain's VP running mate will be a woman. An anti-choice woman. Both McCain and Sarah… Continue
It's obviously a commercial for the book and it's obviously satire. (Is that a religious guy peeking over the fence?). Patriarchal idiocy, fun, or both? Demeaning or stereotype busting? Good/Bad Marketing?
I don't have a problem with the ad content (production values aside), but it bothers me for reasons I can't put my fingers on at the…
I went back to the church a few weeks later to hear about how god is the only foundation for absolute morals. Hoo boy, let me tell you about that one! From this visit, I learned something very important. I learned that this church is set up in a way that does not allow for any sort intelligent discourse. The first visit was an interview, so I did not think it was representative of the church’s usual Sunday meetings. But this Sunday was a typical Sunday meeting of people with like interests who… Continue
