Did John Roberts Just Sign An Arrest Warrant For Barack Obama?

The Obama Interpol arrest rumor isn’t just false. It’s blatantly false. Only an ignorant, gullible idiot could believe these articles… which has me concerned that Republican voters may in fact accept the story as true. [...]

Under Penalty of Law

Lucky me, I am NOT under penalty of law, so I can let my dog poop wherever it wants to.

You Great Big Samsung Rebel You

You are a rebel. You are such a big rebel that you don’t even know what kind of rebel you are. You just rebel against… stuff… by perpetrating a sort rebelliosity… involving pouting your lips. Why, if you weren’t so busy tapping the screen of your Samsung Galaxy smart phone, you would be standing in [...]

Amusing Conspiracy Theories Linked With Neo-Nazi Holocaust Denial

Last week, I wrote about the strange conspiracy theory known as Project Bluebeam, which contends that fake alien invasions will be used to create a global tyranny. Before that, Peregrin Wood wrote about the odd idea that Homo Capensis, a species of human-alien hybrids, has been working behind the scenes for tens of thousands of [...]

Bill Clinton and Project Bluebeam

Yesterday, a reader named Jamie visited our article about Homo capensis conspiracy theories. Homo capensis is supposed to be a species of big-brained alien-human hybrids that hide behind the scenes, pulling the strings, enslaving Homo sapiens.

Jamie agreed that the Homo capensis idea was quite silly, but for a reason I wasn’t expecting: The political [...]

Are Bison Predicting A Yellowstone Volcanic Eruption?

This morning, over at the right wing conspiratorial web site, Before It’s News, they’re predicting that the Yellowstone National Park could soon see massive earthquakes, and perhaps even an eruption of the Yellowstone volcano. Such an eruption would be a very serious event, killing 90 percent of the people living within 1,000 kilometers of Yellowstone, [...]

Ironies

This weekend, the Ending Spending Super PAC reported spending almost 100,000 dollars to influence a congressional election in North Carolina.

I read last night that a fellow named William Empsen wrote that there are seven types of ambiguity – not six or eight.

What ironies have you recently encountered?

Is There Another Species Of Humans – Homo capensis – Enslaving Us All?

The use of cradle boards and other apparatus with young children has been used at different times of human history to purposefully create elongated skulls, flattened skulls, bulbous skulls, and other unusual cranial shapes. [...]

Argument From Oliver Wendell Authority

“Taxes are what we pay for a civilized society.” — Oliver Wendell Holmes, U.S. Supreme Court, 1927

So said the long-serving, widely respected Supreme Court justice. Can’t you just hear that basso profundo. Cast James Earl Jones for the reenactment. Cast Morgan Freeman.

“It would be strange if it could not call upon those who [...]

Alien Space Probe? Beings Of Light Around The International Space Station?

A group calling itself Secureteam10 claims to have “footage showing a very large flying object” approaching the International Space Station. A video posted by the group does indeed show something odd in the same frame as an external shot of the space station.

What that thing is, it’s impossible to say. It looks and behaves [...]

Do Not Fear To Be Eccentric

“Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, because every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.” – Bertrand Russell

It isn’t good advice just because Bertrand Russell said it… but it is good advice.
