    Jesse James, Sandra Bullock need to confront Nazi connections

    I have plenty of conservative friends, as well as plenty of liberal ones. In day to day life, I – like most of us – tend to judge people on their actions, not their political stances.

    I have never had a friend that was a neo-Nazi, however. There are some people I – like most of us – refuse to meet halfway.

    Tea Party Big Tent: Racists and Homophobes Welcome

    I'm not sure why I'm surprised. I suppose I thought that, even though I recognize that racism exists, it had at the very least become so impolite to use racial slurs in public that even the most strident bigots would keep their disgusting language to themselves and their cronies.

    A letter to the people of Iran

    Dear People of Iran,

    I saw that your government has been blocking foreign Web sites, so I’ll make this quick:

    Could you guys please overthrow your current regime and replace it with something less strict and less crazy? Because, trust me on this, President Obama is just waiting for a good opportunity to build bipartisan support via bombing you guys into the Iraqian age.

    NAMBLA speaks out: "At least we aren't the Catholic Church"

    For countless decades, Catholic parents around the globe sent their children to work with the Catholic Church in a variety of ways – alter boys, choir members, etc. Many times, this experience is helpful to the child, who learns responsibility, hard work and a deeper understanding of God.

    And many other times, the child returns, completely broken and emotionally destroyed because they were sexually abused by pedophile Catholic priests.

    The New York Times and dagblog's own Larry Jankens reported today on the recent growth of the "states' rights" movement among right wing militants and Tea Party activists opposed to big government. The states' rights supporters are known as "Tenthers" for their veneration of the 10th Amendment, which reserves for the states all powers that the Constitution does not explicitly grant to the federal government.

    Shock and Amen: Let's take the war to God

    From a U.S. federal court, comes the latest inconvenient truth for antivaxxers to deal with:

    The Business of Universities

    A lot of people who talk about reforming American universities like to say that they should be "run like a business." Those people seldom explain what they mean by that, because they take their "like a business" phrase as self-evident and self-explanatory. But American universities, even if they're non-profits, already run like businesses. In fact, they are businesses. The only question is what kind of businesses they should be.
