Why Everybody Hates Atheists

@rsmccain Science! pic.twitter.com/ZBYaLZ5rQ5 — Lee Ritz, M.D. (@lee_ritz) December 4, 2013 It’s not just because atheists kill babies, because not all atheists do. But let’s admit that, in a universe of accidental randomness, there is nothing particularly special about a little clump of cells. Or a bigger clump of cells, for that matter. So if […]

Obama Scrooges Christmas

Re-elect Obama, the tax-hiking enemy of a free-market economy — hey, that’s got to be great for the holiday retail season, right? Confidence among U.S. consumers dipped to its lowest point in December since July amid rising economic worries, according to a monthly index released Friday.

2012 The Best Year Ever?

by Smitty A fine Trifecta outing: It’s useless to judge the quality of the year as it ends. We’re too close to the details. We know that all of the numbers get adjusted down later. And the Big Doom will like arrive in 2013, though it will be labelled as ‘reform’, one predicts. Merry Christmas!

The kids woke up at 7 a.m. to […]

I’m not sure which is more profoundly offensive: The song itself, or Richard McEnroe posting it under the title, “A Ron Paul Christmas”: There are so many layers of sick humor atrociously bad taste hate crime involved, I’m not sure where to begin: Orthodox Jews will be horrified by this shiksa‘s expression of carnal lust for Jew-flesh; […]
