Gingrich: ‘New fascism’ . . .

N American Ice Age copy

By Larry Leonard

April 7, 2014 — He’s talking here about global warming, according to this piece intended to trash him. It’s a juvenile piece, like so much of what passes for modern journalism. If you go to it, its one of those that is set up sticky. Hard for some computers to get back

By J. Matt Barber

Hey, gals, want to avoid being raped? Put away that Lady Smith 38. No need for pepper spray. Self-defense classes? Not necessary. The solution is simple. The best defense against rape is to just cast away your “deeply troubling” Christianity and become a secularist slut.

Anarchy (or not) for Christmas

Obam mad

By Art Hyland

“Why is it we fought against tyrannical, socialist enemies (during hot and cold wars) only to systematically and gradually adopt the same senseless governing philosophies. . .”

Modern Stromatolites, Australia

by Larry Leonard

“Okay, you are now a planetary scientist. Humans have existed on the planet for maybe a million years or so, in one stage of development or another. I believe our appearance was pre-ordained by the original laws of “nature” created by an architect: a super-intelligence people call “God,” but you
