So I was in love [...]

He can’t, so he is suing White Castle for not accommodating his fat ass. The religion of victimology gains another voice.

Return to the Planet of “No Judgment”

Thursday, September 15, 2011 20:57 2 Comments

Earlier this year I wrote an article about the inane Planet Fitness chain and its commitment to making sure you don’t judge anyone within its walls.

Raw Milk and Meddling Propagandists

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 20:11 1 Comment

I like to cull raw milk propaganda off the web every now and then, if only for some quick laughs. Why raw milk? Because raw milk is under siege by the political powers and special interests probably more so than any other thing that I can think of within the last few years. Well, on [...]
