This is not the educational system of an advanced country.

Multnomah county (which is mostly Portland) is pretty advanced, but apparently we've got at least one backward judge.

Even back then, they saw both points of view.

Christian love:  church leaders fight each other over which people the church should shun.

Fox decides that Ingraham's attack on the Parkland students is worth fighting for.  But her right to free speech doesn't include a right to have advertisers keep funding her program.  See a lesser Hogg hater get pwned here.

Religion keeps a tenacious grip on its captives.  It also gives them weird sexual obsessions.

The Trump regime compiling a database of friends and enemies in the media is totally nothing to worry about.

Bruce Gerencser continues his story of a Christian marriage.

Wingnuts rally around Kevin "first, hang all the women" Williamson.

Motherhood is terrible because that's the kind of culture we have (found via Miss Cellania).

The truth offends me, so shut up.

Here's some background on the Roseanne Barr / Hitler photos.  The idea that anyone found this funny is nauseating.

A veteran speaks out on the gun debate.

Maddow pwns Hannity.

Prominent wingnuts love The Camp of the Saints (see my review of it here).

Abandoned by the US, Syria's Kurds turn to France, prompting a Trumpish outburst from Erdoğan.

Trump's trade war with China will inflict heavy economic casualties -- among his own supporters.  It could finally overcome Congress's reluctance to impeach.

Evangelical Trumpanzees have no choice but to embrace hypocrisy.

A Pruitt miasma has settled over the EPA.

Like olden-day gangsters, Trump and the Trumplings are engaged in a tit-for-tat war with the law.  All Trump's bullshit will come to a head right before the election.  Here's what it means to say he's a "subject" rather than a "target" of Mueller's investigation.  And Mueller may have found that witch Trump claims he's hunting.

As Republicans realize they can't win on tax "reform", they'll resort to bigotry and division.
