Indiana State Codifies Hate
In a shocking (to civilized human beings) development, Indiana Governor Mike Pence flourished his burning cross ballpoint pen and signed Senate Bill 101, the ” Religious Freedom Restoration Act,” a so-called “religious freedom” law which forbids state or local governments from “substantially burdening a person’s ability to exercise their religion–unless the government can show it…
“Don’t Go There, Guvna’!” Bobby Jindal & Mythical Euro-Sharia
I missed the whole “No-Go Zone” brouhaha of Fox News and Bobby Jindal in real time, having more important things to do like chase my wife around the house, whooping like a b-movie indian and accompany her on a quick lark of a trip down to Pittsburgh, an hour to the south, and back, for…

An American, Too
I found this interesting sign during a recent google adventure, and it led to some interesting research. Frank Tanaka immigrated to the USA in 1903, when he was 16 years old. Twenty-nine years of hard work later he opened a popular Japanese restaurant in Salem, Oregon and became a respected businessman. His story, told on…
Quotes From The Dark Side: Michele Bachmann
This woman has spewed so much idiocy, I could write all day and not cover half of the hilariously frightening bile to come from her mouth. I’d call is A Cavalcade of Blowhard Bachmann Ejecta. “Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon…
