Angry White Man

It’s getting so you can’t open your mouth anymore without someone taking offense. Everyone it seems is feeling persecuted. Gays and Christians are fussing over rainbows and flags. Conservatives and Liberals are fighting over just about everything (with Libertarians caught between them). Regular citizens are afraid to walk outside because there are so many street thugs waiting for a chance to cut’em up or shoot’em just to get their wallets. Female athletes are rightfully pissed off because males are getting their peckers chopped off then competing in women’s sports. Continue reading

Sometimes, The Republicans Are The Jackasses

Well here we go again. Christians are once more seeking to worm their doctrine into our public schools. This time it’s in Arkansas. State Representatives Mary Bentley (R) and Gary Stubblefield (R) have sponsored a bill (HB 1701) to allow teachers the option of teaching Creationism to K-12 students as a theory. It’s passed in the State House on a strict party line vote and as of this writing is awaiting a vote in the State Senate. Continue reading

Jumping The Gun

So the governors of Texas, the state of my birth and Mississippi, my adopted home state have decreed that it’s time to “open up for business.” I hope that goes well but I must admit being a bit skeptical. Both governors apparently think that we’re safe from the pandemic at this point. But no we aren’t. Not even close. The end result will be a new wave of infections and unnecessary deaths that will rightfully be the fault of these two short-sighted men. Continue reading

The Sins of the Fathers?

Of all the craziness being pushed by the Left in America, I think the idea of “slavery reparations” might be the most outlandish of them all. Yes, there was a time when reparations would have been justified – back when the majority of former slaves were still alive. But now? Generations have come and gone. Race is no longer a factor where civil rights are concerned. The time for reparations has long since passed. Continue reading

Memo To Evangelicals

Ok y’all I’ll apologize in advance but I got to say this to the Evangelicals who are still out there ranting about the election: Can you please just shut the hell up for awhile? The rest of us are sick of you. We’re exhausted from you. You keep spouting all these ridiculous claims. You keep insisting that somehow Donald Trump will still end up being President for another term. Do you have any sense of reality? Are you so crippled by your perverse beliefs that you cannot see what’s right in front of you? Or are you just plain stupid? Enough already! Save it for the midterms.

What’s Next?

All through the Trump presidency, Mr. Trump has been a bit of a loose cannon when it comes to social media. One could make the case that Democrats aside, his own mouth (and by extension his keyboard) is his worst enemy. Has he exaggerated at times? Yes. Lied? Yes. Been truthful at other times? Yes again. But now it’s crumbling down all around him. Twitter and Facebook have muzzled him, and Joe Biden is about to replace him. The latest leg of his lifelong ego trip is coming to an end.

Overwhelmed In America

As not only an American but just as a human being, I’m shocked and dismayed at the path my nation is traveling. It was bad enough when people just whined and traded lawsuits when they didn’t get their way. But now we’re burning cities and killing people. Protestors turned our capitol into a third world city in early January – because things didn’t go their way. Was there corruption involved in the election? Yes, absolutely. Was the violence justified? No it wasn’t. And now politicians and public figures are pointing fingers of blame at each other when all of them share some some measure of responsibility for the chaos. Continue reading

Mental Midgetry

America is heading down a dangerous road. I’m not talking about Socialism or Anarchy (yeah, those are bad too). I’m referring to our free-fall into ignorance. Far too many Americans are rejecting obvious facts in favor of what they want to believe. They’ll reject a beneficial scientific discovery because they think it conflicts with their religious beliefs. They reject common sense precautions against Covid-19 because they’ve been deluded into thinking their rights are being violated. We reject vaccines because some goofball on youtube strings together a bunch of unrelated information. We are becoming a nation of people unwilling or unable to think outside the box. I find myself torn between wanting to help fight the tidal wave of stupidity or just giving up.

The Great Human Disconnect Of The 21st Century

AngryBabyMaskMore and more Americans are becoming disconnected from reality. Does anyone recall the USA ever being in such a mess? Violent civil unrest, unwarranted attacks on innocent people, rampant conspiracy theories, looting and rioting and more. We’ve had civil unrest in the past, and not all of it bad. Women, blacks and gays all had to fight for equality in a nation dominated by old white men reluctant to give up their stranglehold on American society. They won, and that’s a good thing. We’re supposed to be a free nation. But… We might be free but we’re certainly not united.
