McCullough on New Jersey Ruling

One thing has become very clear: you can always count on Kevin McCullough to bring the crazy when it comes to gay rights (and pretty much anything else). Take a gander at this column responding to the New Jersey gay marriage ruling. Despite all that their angry-mob front groups argue in front of television cameras…

Australian Imam Justifies Rape

Another example of a barbaric belief that the whole world must condemn and fight against.

Rumsfeld’s Mount Misery

Wow. I’m not sure what to think about this. It’s too easy to take the easy cheap shot on this, but it still gives me the creeps, mostly because of the connection to Frederick Douglass. And I just can’t imagine why anyone would want to live in a place like this. Donald Rumsfeld’s summer home…

Could Gambling Bill Swing the Election?

Some say it could. The Las Vegas Sun reports that conservative scholar Charles Murray is warning the Republican party about the political damage the bill is going to do to them: That’s the prognosis of poker-playing scholar Charles Murray, who warned in a recent newspaper opinion piece of the political damage Republicans may face from…

A Classic Forgotten Song

This is very cool, the video for Somewhere Down the Crazy River, by Robbie Robertson. This was a minor hit for him from a rare solo project. Click here.

TMLC on the New Jersey Ruling

My first thought when the New Jersey gay marriage ruling came down was, “Oh boy.

And it includes this delightfully ironic quote: Patrick T. Gillen, the Thomas More…
