If the Devil won the GOP nomination…
Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” ~ Matthew 4:8-9 While there’s much that we don’t yet know as to where […]
Want bigger government? Vote Republican.
When’s the last time you heard a Republican President or a Republican Party nominee for President actively campaign on the elimination of Social Security? Or on the elimination of Medicare? Or on the elimination of Medicaid? Or on a dramatic reduction of the military industrial complex? Or on the elimination of the property tax, through which actual home […]
“What Happens In Vegas” is running for President.
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” If only. Now “what happens in Vegas” is running for President…and winning. Or at least leading in the polls so far, anyway. The Republican polls. With truckloads of support from “evangelical conservative Christians”, to boot. “Conservative Christian” leader Jerry Falwell Jr., President of Liberty University, made news recently […]
American “conservatives” fund Planned Parenthood (again) in new budget deal.
In case you haven’t heard, a new “budget deal” has apparently been struck between the Pagan Political Right and the Pagan Political Left in Washington DC. So did we defund Planned Parenthood? Nope.

August 6. That’s the day America is waiting for. That’s the day that it is on! August 6 in Cleveland, Ohio: Trumpamania gets real. Or unreal. Or more unreal. Or…well…you get the picture. Whatever it is, this Trumpamania thing is getting serious. Seriously funny, seriously sad, and seriously bizarre all at the same time. It’s […]
Confronting the Gay Orwellian Party: Dragging the Pagan Right out of the closet and into the light.
Ever wonder why the “conservative Republican Party” seems to routinely serve as the right side wingman of a movement that is always leading the culture – wingmen included – to the left? Ever wonder why the “conservative Republican Party” always seems to end up defending the leftward lurches that it “fought against” a generation or so ago? (How many […]
Obacalypse Now: War, Famine, Pestilence, and Wicked Leadership in Romans 1 America.
Okay, so you can probably tell by the title that this post isn’t exactly gonna be “the feel good hit of the summer”. In some ways, that’s a pretty solid assessment.
