The bullfighting baby the world deserves, but not the one it needs right now

Because the world loves jokes at my expense, we are continuing with our stories involving bulls.

Because the world is a dark and unpredictable place, this time the story involves a baby.

Yes, it’s time to talk about the bullfighter who took his baby with him into the ring while putting a large, dangerous animal through its paces.

Because the world is a fascinating, ego-driven place, we know about this due to the bullfighter posting a picture of it on his Instagram account. Continue reading

Will the new arms race in America be the most devastating one?

There’s a new arms race in the United States, a race the Americans have never lost.

They won the race to the atomic bomb, using it to help win World War II. They won the arms race against the Soviets to end the Cold War.

But who will win when the new arms race pits American vs. American? Continue reading

I thought Florida was the Gunshine State

Let’s get right to it: if you don’t live in Missouri, your freedoms are in grave danger. While the continued Obama-ization of this country threatens to take away our God-given rights to guns, the Show Me State is taking matters into their own hands.

Last year, Democratic Governor Jay Nixon vetoed the bill that would have made Missouri the last bastion of freedom in America, and Republicans came up just short of the votes needed to overturn that veto.

The Winter of My Discontent

As you may recall, my first run-in with snow left me a bit out of sorts. That was just a prelude though, as things recently got much more severe.

Last week, the temperatures plummeted and we had a day of non-stop snow.

Do you owe degrees to someone? Like, Satan? I imagine he has a lot of extra degrees because of the hellfire and whatnot. Continue reading
