  • Forget Gun Control, Let’s Ban the Senate

    The failure of the gun control bill isn’t an example of cowardice on the part of senators who didn’t vote for it, or some fatal flaw on behalf of its sponsors. It’s just another case of the Senate being cripplingly, pathetically gridlocked and unable to do anything for anyone…

  • Eighty-One Years for Weed?

    Here’s how absurd the war on drugs has gotten: an activist from Keene, New Hampshire, is facing 81 years in prison for dealing marijuana, and while he's admitted to the crime, he’s still fighting the case in court today in hopes the jury will acquit him.

  • Does Don Draper Want to Legalize Heroin?

    The idea that mass incarceration and the war on drugs are racist as well as massive failures has gained a lot of traction over the years. But it wasn’t until the past few days that the movement to end the drug war achieved the mark of every mainstream political cause in America—a…

  • New Atheism's Nasty Streak of Islamophobia

    If your project is to convince people that religion is evil and should be wiped from the face of the earth, and that rational, enlightened atheism is the beacon of truth towards which we must steer the storm-battered ship of the human race, is directly assaulting religion, or one…

    Now that it’s possible to legally buy and smoke marijuana in many parts of the US, it’s safe to say that weed and its by-products will be ingested freely throughout the country in the next decade. But have you ever shotgunned a blunt into your dog’s face?

  • Why Does Sarah Palin Want Your Money?

    Sarah Palin isn't running for office, she doesn't have a TV show anymore, and she's less and less politically relevant. But she really, really wants people to pay attention to her, so she made a video all about how great she is. What a likable woman!

  • Are We There Yet? - The March/April Issue of 'Endtime Magazine'

    The latest issue of 'Endtime Magazine' features a prediction that Jews will sacrifice live animals on the Temple Mount, a four-headed cheetah with wings, a "miraculous" recovery from brain cancer, and the rather alarming news that Iran now has a nuclear weapon.

  • The American Student Who's Planning an Israeli-Palestinian Music Festival

    Since spending four months in Jerusalem, a college student named Andrew Roseman has been working to create a festival (called Man of a Thousand Teas) that would feature musicians from both sides of the Green Line and bring Israelis and Palestinians together, at least for a day.

  • Relax, Soda Isn’t Killing Anyone

    A study says that 180,000 people die every year thanks to sugary drinks. Really? Like, if we could magically erase soda and energy drinks from the Earth, the 180,000 people who died of diabetes and heart disease would still be alive? That sounds right?
