Time to get reamed by healthcare! Lyme Patient Edition

I’m not going to talk about promises made, or private insurance for entrepreneurs and small business owners, or anything like that.

I’m going to talk about our particular plan, from Forrest’s place of business, and how we’re utterly screwed next year because of it.  He works at a decent company that’s been fairly awesome about [...]

No shoes handy? Kill a roach the convoluted way!

Guaranteed to amuse your significant other!

Turn a glass upside down on it while it’s sitting on your carpet like a derp, its antennae blowing in the wind from your box fan (not kidding…it almost looked happy). Fret for a minute about how you’re going to deal with it if it scurries out while you’re [...]

Ah, racism.

A WWII veteran was waiting outside of his local VA lodge to escort a lady friend in (this is very common – my grandmother, when she went to events in Clarksville, would have chaperones all the time, because that’s just how these folks operate), and two young black males beat the crap out of him [...]

Call and response.

Someone who used to be a very dear friend of mine posted the following in a public forum, this morning (I broke it up because it was a giant wall of text…I guess for impact purposes):

Last night I was down in the city with my fiance and his mother and stepdad, who are visiting [...]

My cats and their toes.

Sophie, as you may recall, is staying in the other bedroom with Forrest right now, since she likes to climb all over my head while I’m sleeping, and I have enough trouble with sleep as it is.  She’s been thriving in the other room, as it’s smaller, has more places to hide, and her food [...]

So, according to Arizona…

…every woman who crosses the state line could be pregnant at any time, without knowing it.  Seriously…think about it.  If she has sex, no matter where she is in her cycle, she’s just risked having a 2-week-old fetus (by the definition of this law) MAGICALLY IMPLANTED into her uterus.

Dear World,

What is it with [...]

“Legitimate rape”? Are you kidding me?

Jezebel pretty much covers the snark portion of this situation, so I’ll leave that to them.

You guys want to know why I’m not talking about politics, anywhere?

THIS IS WHY.

BECAUSE EVERYONE IS A MORON IN AN ELECTION YEAR, MORE SO THAN USUAL.

Yes, “everyone.”

Have you ever heard of “magical thinking”?  It’s very [...]

*[EDITED AND UPDATED]* All I’m going to say about Obamacare can be summed up in this short entry.

(I posted this on Facebook just now, and I know there are folks who read here who aren’t on my FB who might have something to add.)

***Okay, so in comments on FB, someone asked me where I got this idea.  I’ve gotten it EVERYWHERE.  The places that aren’t outright saying this can’t agree on [...]

Awww…how sweet!

[updated:  Due to formatting issues, there are periods separating paragraphs.  Something happened when I copied text from their blog to screw the formatting, and I don't have time to fix it, so revel in my jerry-rigging for the time being.]

During my gun-blogging hiatus (basically, the past two years), I didn’t pay much attention to [...]

Internment camps, again? Interesting concept, America. Also: FAIL. [UPDATED]

Yes, I’m behind on this news, seeing as how it began far before Thanksgiving.

Apparently  Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and John McCain, R-Ariz, feel as though “reaching across the aisle” to agree on something involves fightin’ them some terr’ists, m’kay:

A bill on the Senate floor raises the question of whether the Senate has forgotten [...]
