Ethics? We Don’t Need No Stinking Ethics

The following is a screenshot of text from the Lifetime Adoptions Facebook page*: “Adoptions have increased in the past few weeks because women want more for their children and babies.” Bullshit. Adoptions have increased in the past few weeks because millions of people are unemployed or have had their hours cut back severely**, thanks to … Continue reading

So Biden Made a Cake

I’ve seen a few people post the Laurie Goff quote about Joe Biden being awesome for “playing second fiddle to a Black man.” It immediately pissed me off, but it took me awhile to find the words to explain why.   Finally, I came up with the proper analogy: It’s like the Dad who gets … Continue reading

Where Are We Going and Why Are We In This Hand Basket?

Today, I’m going to talk about something I don’t usually write about: politics. Despite the fact that most of my state’s Democrats threw all Californian children under a bus, I am still a registered Democrat. Although, that’s only because I can’t change my party affiliation online. But I am a liberal. When I take the “Which … Continue reading


Right after the Sandy Hook tragedy, easily half of the blogs I read came out with related posts. Most of them were trite. Some of the bloggers, I felt, were trying too hard to make the tragedy relevant to themselves. Some tried to make political statements. Overall, I didn’t care for any of them.
