Okay, chickadees, we’re taking a break from election politics this week and visiting the good ol’ prayer in school argument. With a nursery rhyme twist!
Takedown: Thank you, Ann Romney
There has been a lot going around the internet these past few weeks regarding the conventions. I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to most of it, because I think that the conventions are little more than unpaid advertisements for either side and while the speeches can be inspiring, there isn’t much new. This […]
Takedown: Deport Them All!
Full disclosure: I’m married to an immigrant. One who “did it right.” I guess that according to this week’s crapdate, he is marginalized by those who are here without documents, and I should probably be really angry. Why are they ruining it for us? (But I’m not. Weird, right?)
Takedown: Sue Your Doctor!
I get really upset when people don’t vaccinate their children. I get upset because there are people who can’t get vaccinated, and they are at a higher risk for horrible diseases because people make choices based on rumors and fearmongering. I get upset because my own child is at a higher risk of getting these […]
Takedown: Like this!
Oh, the Nice Guyâ„¢. You know the type. “Why do women always go for the jerks, why don’t they go for Nice Guys like meeeee?” The Nice Guy syndrome is problematic in and of itself (like people should be rewarded for their kindness with sex), but this crapdate takes it to the next level.
Takedown: How to suck at your religion
You know when something bothers you just a little bit, and you ignore it, and then it bothers you just a little bit more, and you ignore it, and then it bothers you just a little bit more, and you ignore it, and then BAM you can’t ignore it anymore? That’s what this week’s Takedown […]
Takedown: Bingo Was Its Name-O
Everybody loves a good game of bingo, right? Just because somebody is racist and classist (among other things) doesn’t mean they can’t play along. At least, that’s what this crapdate poster wants you to believe.
Takedown: It is Called Weather!
I’m not sure how the conservatives got to be the party of “don’t spend your children’s money! No more social programs!” but at the same time “use up your children’s resources! Ignore any consequences of being wasteful!” Except there is a common thread – That Which Is In The Best Interest of Businesses. Right?
Takedown: The five best sentences EVER
I hope you are ready for the best reading experience of your lives: this week’s Takedown promises to deliver the five best sentences you will ever read. This is technically true, if you have never read any other sentences and never intend to; otherwise, it’s your standard issue crapdate.
Takedown: Khrushchev warned us!
I love it when everything comes together in one ridiculous crapdate. This week, we celebrated (well, some of us celebrated) the fact that the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Health Care Act, and some of those who didn’t celebrate it were quick to bemoan the end of America as we know it, socialism at its […]
Takedown: Father’s Day is So Confusing
Hey there! It turns out that even if you flee the country and move to an apartment that is 10 miles from the nearest indoor toilet, crapdates keep rolling in. They never take a vacation.
Takedown: Wife Her
Ugggggh. There are few things that make me grimace like woman-on-woman hate, or something that is clearly designed to pit women against each other. I always wonder about the person who created the picture in the first place – I have a sneaking suspicion they are created by women looking for a boost to their own […]
Takedown: Divided We Stand
This week, two separate crapdates have made their way in front of my eyes, but they are essentially the same. I’ll start with the shorter one:
I’ve been getting too angry at my computer screen lately, so this week’s takedown is something that made me burst out laughing when I saw it. I mean, sure, it’s still craptastic, and there is a lot to talk about, but – well, you’ll see. It’s funny.
Takedown: Nobody Owes You Anything
There are certain words that, in and of themselves, are polarizing. Jargon that is used by either side of a debate, and once somebody utters one of these words, it’s almost always a good idea to back away slowly, as the conversation is not likely to go anywhere. One example is “Obamacare.” President Obama has […]
