Cuz it's only just now July

So, except for the loss of the right to your own body, the expansion of religious authority, the discovery that gun regulations and clean air are out of the question, and dealing with the fact that treaties between the US and sovereign tribal nations are really just a joke, how is your summer going so far?

Even dumber than Trump

I swear I didn't think it was possible, but Georgia's GOP candidate Herschel Walker is one for the books. His first response to the Uvalde shooting was "What I like to do is see it and everything and stuff.Ē Yesterday he proposed ďa department that can look at young men thatís looking at women, thatís looking at their social media ― what about doing that?Ē


GEORGIA, don't do this!

Pew Polling on abortion

This will not be a popular decision.

Don't have the nerve to post this elsewhere

but I thought Biden's line, "faith sees best in the dark," from an otherwise great speech, was unfortunate. No argument, but that's exactly the problem with "faith."

An Open Letter to Marjorie Taylor Greene

Dear Ms. Greene:

I am writing to express my sympathy for the criticism you have received from the press for certain minor verbal gaffes (gazpacho for gestapo; commander and chief for commander in chief, etc.,etc. ) These errors in vocabulary are petty and negligent and in no way merit the abuse you have suffered.

While you are only a freshman in Congress, your skills are quite sophomoric. Clearly the Libtards lack appreciation for your fatuity and the enormity of your accomplishments. (And when it comes to COVID, your colossal nescience beats their trifling science, hands down!)

By way of encouragement, I am enclosing my check for 14 rubles to be used to refudiate these criticisms, to pay down your Congressional non-masking fines, or for any purpose you choose in fartherance of your goal of becoming one of Americaís great bloviating harridans.

Regards,
A Georgia constituent

Anybody else gritting their teeth

at the confirmation bias and sheer lunacy coming from the "faithful" over the tornado tragedies? I just heart a pastor whose church was totally demolished say, in all seriousness, "God is in control."

Powell's funeral

I had a great deal of respect for Colin Powell. And the funeral, I suppose, was lovely. But in watching in I realized how comfortable I have become in the decades since I discarded religion. There is just something creepy now about even the best of religious ceremonies. They're still sad, but for unintended reasons. I feel badly for the folks who still cling to all that supernatural horse puckey.

Halloween: An Occasional Poem


Halloween is another holiday for children.
And when I had themóthe children I mean,
And when they were young and exuberant
I had no love for it.
(Halloween, I mean, not the children or their exuberance.)
They were so obsessive, my kids!
Worrying about costumes as early as September,
Changing their minds and never caring about simplicity.
(In costumes, I mean. My children were simple enough.)
But I had told them they could be anything!
And I found I didnít mean it.
Not, at least, at Halloween.
Because some costumes are harder than others.
Starfishes, say. Or monster trucks.
Things that require moving parts.
Or electricity.
I know I disappointed them.
(The children, not the starfishes or trucks)
Encouraging them to sublimate their dreams
In the interest of something cheap and easy,
Boxed. And available at Walmart.
But I didnít like them so much back then.
Making the costumes, not the children.
But now that Iím old and all of that is over,
Well, not exactly over, because they call me on holidays,
(Not the costumes, but the children),
I find that Iím in just in love with it!
(The holiday, not the children, who Iíve always loved dearly)
Because Halloween now is something very different.
Itís an excuse to bring chocolate home from the grocery.
The day that your husband lets you dress the dogs in clothes,
The day that being old and scary yourself
Is really pretty cool.
I find that I have a lot more love for all of it now.
The dogs, of course.
And the holiday,
And the children.

So, did everyone survive

The day of Praying the Atheists away? I'm still here, and atheist AF.
