The internet is currently ablaze with comments about Arts & Entertainment Network suspending Duck Dynasty family patriarch Phil Robertson after his comments in an interview with GQ, in which he quoted the Bible and said that homosexuals would not go to Heaven and that it will “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from […]

Under the “How Damn Stupid Can You Be?” category, consider the case of the police officer who was asked by the principal of his daughter’s elementary school in Mesa, Arizona not to wear his uniform and duty weapon when picking his child up from school. According to news reports, the principal of Entz Elementary School […]

Maybe it’s just me, but did you ever notice that quite often, those who complain about something the loudest are the worst offenders? I was reminded of that again recently when I read a news story from Katy, Texas, in which a family complained that they were disrespected by the manager of an Applebee’s restaurant […]

If a U.S. Marine farts in the desert, can it be heard in the Halls of Montezuma, or on the shores of Tripoli? I sure hope not, because the natural act of passing gas has become a politically incorrect hot potato, so to speak. And don’t even ask me to visualize that comment! A few […]

Schools across America are cracking down on bullies, with a zero tolerance policy toward any type of physical or verbal abuse between students. This comes in the wake of some terrible incidents reported in the news the last few years, in which students have committed suicide because they could not tolerate the bullying they have […]

Are you as sick to death of the politically correct bullcrap that has taken over every level of our society as I am? We have gotten so twisted and turned around in our never ending quest not to offend anybody, in any way that, frankly, it offends me. Now that’s double-speak for you, isn’t it? […]

The news is full of reports of outrage by travelers who are being subjected to pat downs  by TSA personnel that many are calling intrusive, insensitive, and even obscene. Some of the things I am hearing are completely disgusting, including a 61 year old bladder cancer survivor who said the pat down he received was […]

I’m sorry for the title of this blog, but there’s no other way to say it. I’m pissed! Television station KSBW in Salinas, California reports that the pinheads that run Denair Middle School, in Stanislaus County, ordered a thirteen year old student to remove an American flag from his bicycle on Veterans Day. The news […]
