One Person’s Atheist Journey

I can relate to to all of these points, but items one and five resonated the most with me. The most enlightening point for me: all humans are atheists, to varying degrees.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother's Day

This is my mother during her first few days as a grandmother to my now seven year-old son. She’s been such a wonderful mother to me, and my son loves “Mimi” to pieces. Thanks, mom, for being such a great mother and grandmother. Happy Mother’s Day!

A Textbook Example of Corruption

This article from The Week does not need my commentary. It describes corruption, and reminds us that the right wing is hell-bent on executing people. It is sickening.

After Oklahoma’s botched execution, here comes the cover-up – The Week.

What Part of “Shall not be infringed” Don’t You Understand?

What part of “Well-Regulated Militia” don’t you understand? One’s rights shall not be infringed, within the context of a well-regulated militia. For the sake of clarity, we can define a militia as one or more citizens. Flaunting your gun in a public area, just because you can, does not mean you qualify as a well-regulated militia. Threatening peoples’ lives, because they have a different viewpoint about what types of guns to sell does not make you a well-regulated member of a militia. In fact, either of these behaviors probably indicates you are insane, in which case, I don’t want you in a citizen militia. The second amendment should remain intact; it makes America unique. However, with great power, comes great responsibility. There may one day be a need for a citizen militia, but we damned well better be sure it’s competent, well-regulated, and composed of citizens who take their second amendment right seriously.

They Grow So Fast

Take advantage of every second you spend with your little one, even the less glamorous moments of epic, “How-in-the-hell-did-he-do-THAT?” diaper changes and projectile vomit. Before you know it, your little baby will be seven.
