A burger and fries is how much??

Was a time when young people went to work at McDonald’s expecting nothing but some job experience and some spending money. As the economy got worse and worse you’d hear people talk about not finding jobs. Inevitably someone would say, “McDonald’s is hiring” as a way to say, “something is better than nothing.” So imagine [...]

Tim Tebow, Jason Collins and Chris Broussard…and courage.

Normally the news that Tim Tebow was released…well, any news about Tim Tebow, really, would be the talk of sports talk radio. But not yesterday. Yesterday (and today, and probably for the rest of the week) the talk – and not just on sports talk, but all over the radio dial – was about another [...]

Short Stories…

I have a bunch of stories to follow up on, so I’m going to try to get a start with a few short words about these. Atheist Billboard: Quit the Church – I still don’t know why atheists want to be upset that there are people who believe in God. I’m not sure I would [...]

Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva published an article in the peer reviewed Journal Of Medical Ethics with this abstract: Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and  newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, [...]

Choice

As you have no doubt heard already, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has changed their minds and have reinstated their support of Planned Parenthood. Why they decided to withdraw their support in the first place, and why they flip flopped in roughly two days time is fairly unclear. But it doesn’t really matter, does [...]

No Jesus prayers

You can pray. Just don’t say Jesus. Or Christ. Or Savior, or a number of other words that will not be allowed in Forsyth County, North Carolina government meetings. From this point forward, the county will have to police all prayers offered at their meetings to conform to a federal appeals court’s assessment of a [...]

Supreme ignorance

The Supreme court has decided to ignore a case that allows the city of New York to ban schools from renting their space to churches for use on weekends. That was an awkward way to say that, but I kind of liked my play on words for the title, so I had to go with [...]

The bratization of America

That’s right: bratization. We’re becoming a nation of brats. We have to have things our own way or we complain. We think nothing of saying things that are hurtful or just plain stupid and wrong, because after all, this is America, I have a right to my opinion. Well, sure you do, Sherlock. But that [...]

First Presidential Candidates, now kids

Seems like it isn’t too hard these days to sexually harass someone. In fact, it’s so easy, even the kids are getting in on it. Last week a 7 year old boy was suspended and the police were called – the police(!) – because he sexually harassed another boy. Apparently the two boys (let’s just [...]
