Mike Huckabee with his favorite child molester.
On Thursday afternoon, erstwhile reality TV star and fired antigay shill Josh Duggar posted another agonized confession to the family’s Facebook page, this time for having an account with the hookup site for married people looking to cheat, Ashley Madison. In the post, Duggar confessed to having an “addiction” to pornography and to having cheated on his wife, Anna, the mother of his three children. Users of the social medium Twitter quickly pounc...

Anasazi Wall at Chimney Rock Points to Crab Nebula Supernova

What power lies in building a wall that points to a spot in the sky where a strange new Day Star That Faded appeared?

 A reminder that “there’s where it happened”? Or did they believe some kind of spiritual force flowed from that spot in the sky and concentrated at the Chaco-style great house with a wall that points at the spot?

And surely there were skeptics. What if pointing to the spot in the sky enraged the mysterious powers of the Day Star spirit? What if it wasn’t enough to appease it?

At the spot up on Chimney Rock where the observatory is built, little native stone was usable. That means it all had to be carried up a narrow, steep trail, along with wooden beams, plaster, and water (to mix with the plaster).

I keep thinking about the morning that Day Star appeared. Like a hole burning through the sky, quite unlike anything any living being had seen (without the use of psychotropic plants). It must have been shocking.

Any skywatcher priest who failed to predict it would lose esteem and respect. And there was no way to predict it.

"The far-right is mainstreaming slavery; it’s pushing for women and even young girls to die from complicated pregnancies or to birth the children of rapists; it’s planning to strip the citizenship clause from an amendment that was ratified 150 years ago; it’s embracing racist colloquialisms; and it’s acting upon videos that are proven hoaxes. The Republican race for the presidency is all about who’s better at blurting ridiculous non-sequiturs — all of it following the lead of their reality-show frontrunner. The Democrats, in spite of their faults, are the only grown-ups in the room."
While Democrats, for all their problems, still mostly seem like adults, the GOP has completely lost the thread

George Zimmerman and his new ally Andy Hallinan — the owner of the Florida gun shop that loudly declared itself a “Muslim-free zone” earlier this summer — have both been leaning increasingly toward inflammatory rhetoric against the U.S. government. In a message on the social medium Twitter, Zimmerman said on Friday “Si vis pacem para bellam,” Latin for “If you want peace, then prepare for war.” Hallinan, meanwhile, told conservative Miami talk ra...
