Misinformation Works; Dangerously So

Yes; misinformation works. Places like Fox News excel at it. Nutjobs like Pam Geller and her ilk have been very successful at promoting fear of anything associated with Islam. They achieve this by simply lying, and playing into the xenophobia already present in many members of the far-right-wing. I follow someone on Twitter named Joe …

A Mad Rush

It’s not the rush you’d expect. This one happens to be Erik Rush, and I refer to him as mad not because he’s angry, but because he seems to be rather mentally unhinged. My story begins with a blog post by Ed Brayton. Ed’s post is “Rush: The Commies are Coming, Led by Obama!” The …

Blasphemy Day 2011

Happy Blasphemy Day! Yes; it’s that time of year again. Let the shameless blasphemers raise their voices in decrying the ignorance and stupidity of any laws against that thing some call blasphemy. I’m lucky to be living in the United States, where the thing some people call blasphemy is not against the law. “Congress shall …

It’s a Conspiracy! Episode 1

This is the first of what I hope to be a continuing series of blog posts about certain conspiracy theories and the joyous laughter I get from perusing them. I enjoy conspiracy theories in the same way that I enjoy certain other types of fiction. I’m not implying that there are never conspiracies between people …

Can You Feel the Righteous Love?

I could probably write a blog post every day based solely on articles found on WorldNetDaily (or WingNutDaily, as it is often called). There are actually some very good reasons for why I don’t do that, though. I probably wouldn’t get much done because of the imminent facepalm involved with reading most content on WND. …

Woomeisters like Bill Kirkland Say the Darndest Things

While I was receiving chemotherapy treatment on Wednesday, 2011-05-04, a tweet from a friend of mine caught my interest. [Yes, I play on Twitter while the chemotherapy drugs drip into my veins.] Looking back in my timeline, I found that the tweet from @zeno001 followed this brief exchange: Wow! It appeared that Mr. Kirkland was …

Help! Help! I’m being repressed!

It has recently come to my attention [by way of a post at Dispatches From the Culture Wars] that a group of Christians in the State of California feel that they need to codify their rights to evangelize and spread the gospel because those rights are in grave peril. They think that an amendment to …

Why Do I Even Bother?

Sometimes I have an exchange of words, comments, ideas, etc. with someone, and I am left wondering why I even bothered. I’d like to show you just such an exchange so that you can get an idea of why I feel this way at times. Twitter is an interesting medium for conversations. The limit of …

The Sky Is Falling! Seeds! Buy Seeds!

This advertisement is being promoted by WorldNut Daily. Surprise, surprise. …in an economic meltdown, non-hybrid seeds could become more valuable than even silver and gold. I love the “graph” that purports to show the value of gold, silver, and “Nonhybrid Seeds.” It’s odd that there aren’t any numbers on that graph, isn’t it? I suppose …
