Rand Paul Looks Out of Country and Out of State for Political Inspiration while Helping Tax Dodgers Hide Money

Last week, Senator Rand Paul “of Kentucky” introduced special legislation, S. 887.

You may notice that I placed “of Kentucky” in quotes in the last paragraph. That’s because, according to Open Secrets’ analysis of Senator Paul’s contributions, he’s not mainly funded by the actual people of Kentucky. In the 2012 election cycle, Rand Paul received […]

Warped Ark Encounter Coming Unpegged In Kentucky

Ken Ham seems to have forgotten something crucial about the myth of Noah’s Ark. In the ancient allegory, the ark was not a successful symbol of salvation. The ark failed to communicate the promise of salvation. Nobody took it seriously. Noah’s Ark is Christianity’s great legend of a divinely inept public relations campaign. […]

Unmanned Drones To Go Spying Under The Sea

Until Congress gets rid of the Patriot Act and the FISA Amendments Act, laws that enable excessive, out of control government espionage against American citizens, no money should be approved to fund technology that can be used to spy against us more effectively, whether that technology is deployed in the sky, on the ground, or under the sea.

Grassroots Ozark and Local Paper Break News on Uranium Mining Plan in Aquifers for 4 States

When the private-schooled, hothouse-cultivated journalistic son of a journalistic legend participates in declaring The Death Of Journalism this week because some newspapers and radio networks are laying off staff, I can’t join in. The currently dominating institutions of journalism grew from small enterprises run by whomever could get access to a printing press. The most […]

Is This Statement by Barack Obama Terribly Sexist?

More than one person has told me that the following statement made by Barack Obama last night qualifies as “terribly sexist”:

The road here has been long, and that is partly because we’ve traveled it with one of the most formidable candidates to ever run for this office. In her thirty-five years of public service, […]
