Blaming and Punishing The Victim

According to Wikipedia, victim blaming happens when “the victim of a crime or any wrongful act is held entirely or partially responsible for the harm that befell them,” and that is the most apt definition I can think of. To put it simply, victim blaming is when the victim is blamed for something someone else … Continue reading

The Reason Bad Things Happen to You is Because You’re a Dumbass

Let’s pretend, dear reader. Pretend you’re a wanted criminal. The crime is irrelevant to this hypothetical situation, so whatever crimes you’ve always dreamed of committing but haven’t because you have, you know, morals…pretend you did that. Finally. Next, let’s pretend that the police are so inept that they can’t catch you, which, let’s face it, … Continue reading

A&E, Phil Robertson, and Unpopular Opinions

Duck Dynasty. We’ve all heard of it. Sadly. It is A&E’s popular show about a wealthy family who owns a company called Duck Commander, which is famous for its duck calls. I have seen only a few minutes of the show when I was forced by my boss to watch it as he laughed about something … Continue reading

The Knock Out Game?

I don’t often watch the news. Every time I do a story will inevitably run which further drains my hope in humanity. I have no tolerance for the political shitstorm in which this country is currently embroiled; it’s all posturing by politicians pandering to their respective extremist parties. Even worse than the political bullshit is … Continue reading

You Must Be 21 to Smoke

New York City made news last year when it banned the sale of sugary drinks (soda, pop, Coke, whatever they call it in your part of the country) in containers larger than 16 ounces in restaurants (and other establishments) with ultimate goal of healthier New York City residents. The bill was quarterbacked (sorry, it’s football season) … Continue reading

This Should Never Have Happened

So with all the mass shootings going on recently you’d think there’d be an even greater emphasis on gun safety by gun owners.  You’d think with all the attention and criticism heading their way by the non-gun-owning population that they’d be doing what they can to not give any more ammunition (pun not intended) to … Continue reading

Jason Collins: Trailblazer

Finally.  An active player from one of the four major American sports leagues has finally “come out” of the closet.  It’s long overdue and frankly I’m surprised it has taken as long as it has. The intrepid soul who came out is Jason Collins, a Center, most recently for the Washington Wizards.  He bravely announced that … Continue reading

Surf Your Way Into Jail

[Editor's Note:  Please welcome BrainRants, Stuph Maphia™.  Funny story.  A few weeks ago 1jaded1 asked me if I read BrainRants.  I thought she was confused and meant brainsnorts, and I said yes without further thought.  Then a day or two later I received a comment from BrainRants and then realized that I was the one … Continue reading

Flag Half Mast

I have not yet addressed the bombings in Boston. There is really no information on who did it, how they did it, or why they did it. Fingers are being cast in multiple directions. It’s the Muslims’ fault. It’s Obama’s fault. Other’s are using this tragedy as a platform to talk about gun control. Somehow … Continue reading

White Smoke and the Next Apocolypse?

This isn’t meant to be a post about religion or faith. You can read TD thoughts on his faith in his most awesome post. My response to the judgers is “Some like it hot”…*owned but TD stole it and I’m too tired to chase him down.*  I tend to avoid churches except for the psalm … Continue reading
