Thanks to Samantha Bee, Georgia Passes Important Law to Help Protect Rape Victims (Video)

If you follow my writing at all, you’re probably aware that I’ve become a huge fan of Samantha Bee’s new show on TBS, Full Frontal. I’ve called it a mix between Jon Stewart’s Daily Show and John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight – but with Bee’s own hilarious style and flair. Well, a few weeks ago she absolutely tore into Georgia […]

A Monument To MLK Will Be Built Over The Birthplace Of The Modern KKK

Just when you thought the Confederate flag controversy was going away, it looks like we’re in for another round of outrage from secession apologists and the “heritage, not hate” crowd.

Georgia Children Humiliated For Not Participating In School Prayer

In the 1960s, the Supreme Court ruled that government-sponsored school prayer was unconstitutional.

Man Flaunts Gun at Little League Game, Tells Parents “There’s Nothing You Can Do About It!”

Welcome to the world in which most conservatives seem to want to live.  One where everyone has a gun holstered at their hip like we’re back in the days of gunfights at the O.K. Corral and disputes were often settled with armed standoffs in the streets. Recently, a man in Georgia scared the hell out […]

Georgia Governor Set to Sign Possibly the Most Extreme Gun Bill in the Country

The gun debate is probably the one debate that I loathe having the most.  For some reason it just seems to render people incapable of using common sense for nothing more than the fact that they like guns.  The fact that people think that guns have nothing to do with gun violence or sensible gun […]

Godzilla & the Little Girl Who Prayed Her Papa Could Stop the Next Cold War

As my six-year-old daughter and I drove home from her school on Tuesday, I informed her that something important had happened to the world map.  A conversation ensued about the Crimean Crisis. We pulled to a red light and sat in silence for a bit.  My mind drifted… … Earlier in the day, I had […]
