KIAV to Albo: Can’t Say We Didn’t Warn You

25-Feb-12

A few days ago, this blogger predicted a dire consequence of all this talk about contraception and other issues in the general vicinity of it: Less leg for you. You start rattling your sabers about taking the power of contraception away from women, fellas, and next thing you know, you’re doing a lot more shaking […]

How About a Real Defense of Valor

24-Feb-12

The Supremes spent some time this week hearing arguments about whether it could be a crime to claim falsely to be a war hero. Or, is there a first amendment right to lie? The genesis of this burble is a law that was passed back in 2005 that responded to a small scandal wherein a […]

Have an Abortion. We Dare Ya.

16-Feb-12

More on this from Bill Tchakirides… Rachel last evening did a pretty good job examining the law the Virginia assembly is fixin’ to pass that ostensibly at its very un-worst only forces a woman seeking an abortion to succumb to an unnecessary medical test first. What she and Virginia Delegate David Englin came to the […]

Do It All For The Nookie

15-Feb-12

Ladies, leave the room for a second. I need a word with the guys. Thanks. Are they gone? Excellent. Fellas, I’d like to talk to you about contraception. Now, don’t make that face. This is something you might not have considered. If the ongoing war on contraception in this country is successful — and believe […]

Behave Yourself

Note also the awesome irony, or should I simply say idiocy, of a middle-aged fat guy being dragged away by cops as he screams at a gaggle of […]

I’ve been saying for quite a while now that the issue of marriage equality would one day have to be put before the Supreme Court. Here we go.

RIP Roger M. Boisjoly, Go Piss on Ronnie Raygun

06-Feb-12

Roger M. Boisjoly died recently. He is remembered as the rocket scientist for Morton Thiokol who tried to get NASA to call off the launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger. That’s the shuttle that blew up and killed the entire crew and the school teacher and all, on January 28, 1986. Boisjoly and a handful […]

What the Komen Freak-Out Belies

03-Feb-12

I don’t think I even need to characterize the recent flare-up regarding Planned Parenthood and the Komen Foundation. Despicable. But I do have a few observations on the issue. First, have a look at the Komen budget pie chart. This is an organization that spends as much on overhead as it does on screening and […]

I want to make darned sure that Papa Bonk reads this one, so I’m posting it here. It is awesome. To My Old Master
