Flowchart for a rational debate (View larger) With Democrats nearly fading to obscurity after the 2016 elections — Republicans gained control of all three branches of the federal government, control 34 of 50 governor’s mansions, and 66 of 99 state legislative bodies — I think Democrats are mistaken to oppose everything the new regime proposes.[…]

What’s The Difference? It’s Easy To Spot.

In light of my recent entry about Kim Davis, the Rowan County (Ky.) clerk refusing to issue marriage licenses despite a court order, someone contacted me with this message: “Wil, did you see this post?

They Were Asking For It, Said The Victim-Blamers
