Obama Pic Decision Turns Back on Consitution and Judiciary



Three weeks after saying he would release the pictures, President Obama is moving to prevent the press from obtaining the pictures of the confirmed acts of torture. The courts have already ruled that any “secrecy” considerations are insufficient to overrule the first amendment right to free press. Obama, ignoring the court and taking a play, from the Bush Administration’s playbook, said today he would try to block the release of the… Continue

Alezheimers, Waltzing IV's and The Living Loss of a Loved One



Over the last few years my grandmother-in-law’s memory has been slipping away from her, but has been more of an inconvenience than a danger. At times, she seems like she might be a good natured, well loved, background character in a sitcom about senior citizens. Convinced the cat has run away, stolen by the neighbor, or met a horrific end, every few minutes, she queries anyone in her eye-line as to the relative location of her nearly homebound… Continue

Bishop Accidently Acknowledges Church and State Separation at Anti-Gay Marriage Rally

Lone Bigot Marian Barry



“There is a difference between civil rights and sacred rights.” – Bishop Harry Jackson



Washington D.C. City Council voted to recognize the same-sex marriages performed in other states. Twelve council members voted to ensure equality for all of their citizens and one voted in favor of letting his religious beliefs trump his duty to all of his constituents.



The lone dogmatist on the city council was… Continue

Fraternity Alpha Delta Phi Comes Out To Westboro Baptist Church



On March 9, 2009 the crazed Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) set their sights on the University of Chicago. In customary WBC fashion, the members displayed god related hate speech with unabashed delight. The event took on almost a festive atmosphere as counter protesters refused to take the fundamentalist wack-jobs seriously. Unwilling to go unnoticed amongst the roasting marshmallows and clever signs, the Chicago Chapter of Alpha Delta Phi launched… Continue

British Man Officially Unbaptized



At eleven years old, John Hunt refused to attend church because he no longer believed in god. Forty-five years later now Doctor John Hunt told the church he wanted his baptism record removed because as a baby, he could not consent. After a bit of a struggle, Dr. Hunt became the first person in England to have his baptism cancelled.



“It struck me there was a lot of hypocrisy around. One Sunday I came back home and said, "Mum, I'm not… Continue

Child Advocate Wastes Precious CPS Resources in the Name of God

In my work as an advocate for foster children in America, I’ve seen personally a level of abuse that might damage the psyche of an average person. I once saw a two year old child, with a face still so swollen he couldn’t open his eyes, returned to abusive home after two weeks in the hospital because “it was just the first time it happened.” So when I hear the abuse word thrown out willy-nilly, devaluing the plight of children who are actually abused, it makes me want to start a crusade.… Continue

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review - Shoddy Production and Smokin' Hotness





Forged in the heat of war and personal tragedy, claw wielding Wolverine was born. Shoddy production and inconsistent writing makes me wish that X-Men Origins: Wolverine could be retroactively aborted.



After his life is turned upside down, the young James Logan - Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) embarks on a tragic journey with co-mutant Victor Creed (Live Schreiber) that spans four wars and endless killing. When the wars finally end, they are dispatched to be members of… Continue

Attorney General Refuses to Prosecute "Good Faith Torture" - Could there be such a thing?



Please notice that in this picture, the penis is blurred out. I guess that's the offensive part of this picture.



After many weeks of discussion, President Obama finally coughed up the word we all have been waiting to hear. He relented to using the honest word, the word we’ve been using for five years, the only word that could be applied to our treatment of many “enemy combatants.” It is not a pretty… Continue
