QUIVERING HOMESCHOOLERS

This profile of the religious leader who inspires the Quiverfull folks is among the most depressing pieces I’ve read in a long time. Women must submit to their husbands. Even their husbands’ physical abuse?

And, BTW, the “church” has a popular homeschooling curriculum.

Sometimes I wish there really were a Hell so that folks who do this to women could be consigned there.

“The House Republican caucus, in its spare time, sells heroin to children.”

It must be true. I read it on the intertubes. Tell everyone you know.

MY LEAST FAVORITE AD(S)

It was a tie. The Doritos one where the guy licks his friends’ fingers and his pants was just gross. And some ad that launched a baby into a window was sick. I don’t even remember what product was being advertised but if I did, I’d never purchase that product or service. Simulated child abuse? Really?

MY FAVORITE AD

I thought the “House” promo spoof of the old Mean Joe Green ad was hilarious. Yeah, it’s been done before. But House tossing the kid his cane was too funny.

WORST. HALF-TIME SHOW. EVER.

A bill has been filed to give “free” gov’t money to home educating families. But ONLY if the kids go to the g-schools first.
