Piers Morgan's conversation with transgender author Janet Mock did not have to go the way it went if he'd followed a few simple rules:

Maybe it strayed over, to the Straybrains column . . ."

Is the Bible fact or fiction? Good question.

Do you think cross-contaminated, US Government and corporate-affected central funding, screened, by corrupted media is like Nazism?

Looks like abortion-rights supporters in Texas (and elsewhere) may have celebrated too soon on that bill that would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks:

California may become the first state in the nation to outlaw the "affluenza" defense. (As in, "I'm rich & my parents were permissive, so when I got drunk, got behind the wheel of a truck & killed four people, it wasn't my fault!")

That Siberian coffee stuff is starting to get around . . . 

Seen STARSHIP TROOPERS (1998)?  Robin knows how one or several characters were developed, if she looks at them closely.

Normally, movies and TV sketch people, like Obama, Kerry, Bush, Boehner (Jabba), Pelosi, Gingrich (Fat Bastard), etc.

But in ST I and III, they sketched people, an entomologist and a plumber, known, to Robin.

Do yew all quit shooting, at MJ's daddy, long enough, to check out some flicks?

So, what is Robin's Google+ page, with maybe one LA Times paste, per month, but hey, along comes an eastern right-wing-nutjobbing, neo-con posse, to spam the Google?

I guess I'll mosey on over, to the LA Times, to see if the eastern RWNJ is snaking around, over there.  Later . . .

SCOTUS DOMA decision: No more "skim-milk marriages" for us. (Also, I think Bill Clinton should personally reimburse Edith Windsor for that $360,000 she paid in estate taxes when her wife died, don't you?)

"Must the young woman of Haitian descent who grew up speaking Creole and Spanish sit up straight and speak in a clear, forthright voice?" Ummm, yes if  you  are an adult of non "Retarded" intelligence and want to live in this country you progressive liberal hack.  Sad a young man died but you live.
