I Don’t Want to Buy an Orange Shirt–But I Know I Must

I don’t own an orange shirt.  But I know I need one. I don’t want to buy an orange shirt.  But I know I must. … In late May, I reached out to my good friend, Pastor Thomas Dixon, the Democratic Party-Green Party fusion candidate for U.S. Senate in South Carolina. “Pastor Dixon,” I said.  […]

President Obama’s Executive Action Is A Good Thing For Gun Owners

President Obama is considering taking executive action to address the horrific gun violence problem we are facing here in the United States, and gun fanatics are predictably freaking out.

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Whips Huckabee and The Donald Into Biblical Shape

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! First, I want to thank each and every one of you Republican Presidential Candidates for coming here today.

The Harsh Truth About Gun Violence: We’re Not Going to do a Damn Thing About It

Sometimes I sit back and think to myself, “I can’t believe there are tens of millions of people in this country who honestly believe that our Second Amendment is meant to give citizens the right to violently overthrow the government.” It’s just so absolutely absurd.

This Is Why Businesses Insist On Gun-Free Zones

In the wake of the recent theater shooting here in Lafayette, the usual gun fanatics have come out of the woodwork to claim the shooter chose the Grand 16 because it is part of a number of “gun-free zones.” Gov. Bobby Jindal, ever the opportunist, quickly came out and said that now was not the […]

Guns, God and Bullsh*t: The Real Truth About the Republican Party

Long ago I reached my tipping point with Republicans as far as it pertains to me being able to take the vast majority of them seriously.

John Boehner’s Reasoning for Blocking Research Into Gun Violence is Appallingly Stupid

I’ve professed many times that the group of people I despise dealing with more than any other are gun fanatics.

It’s Time We Put An End To The Ridiculous Argument That “Guns Don’t Kill People”

Gun fanatics are easily some of the most irrational people I often come across. These are people who look at a deadly inanimate object with actual admiration and affection. Just look at these open carry advocates. These are people who dedicate themselves not to ending homelessness or feeding starving children, but to the belief that […]

Bent Back Mountain: Sarah Palin’s Iowa Speech Translated

Attendees of the Iowa Freedom Summit were treated to a well-scripted eloquent exciting speech from Half-Governor Sarah Palin over the weekend. She was introduced to the crowd by Iowa’s own Steve “Cantaloupe Calves” King, who pointed out that Grifter Sarah Palin had moved the party to the right. Way to the right. Over a cliff, if you […]

South Carolina Republican Wants The NRA In Charge Of School Curriculum For 3 Weeks Each Year

It has been my long-standing belief that the National Rifle Association is one of the most detrimental organizations to society in this country. Not because I’m anti-gun, but because I think there’s a huge difference between gun rights advocacy and a group of gun-obsessed radicals who are basically just shills for gun and ammo manufacturers.
