June 2024


My best seasonally appropriate greetings to you…

Today is the second of five days off – Berlin, Germany, and the “Christian” world are celebrating the birth of their savior.

And I get time off.

So… what have I been doing with this time off?

Wednesday I sped-listened to five podcasts, read two magazines, read a graphic novel, read part of a […]

I’m Thankfully Unburdened

The older I get, the more I realize that I have somehow, luckily, escaped having a huge albatross strung around my neck.

The albatross otherwise known as religion.

On some level, I’ve had a miniscule wish for it – I remember after reading the Little House in the Big Woods (and the rest of the […]

So I am proud of the fact that I pay taxes in Germany, save for one thing….

Sehr geehrter Herr Adam

durch die steuererhebende Stelle des Finanzamts sind wir informiert worden, dass keine ausreichenden Information über Ihre Zugehörigkeit zu einer der Kirchen vorliegen, die auf der Grundlage der Bestimmung des Grundgesetzes zur Steuerhebung berechtig sind.

Unfortunately the original video was taken down, but because many people wanted to make sure you could hear his […]

Germany’s Going Down the Drain

I was recently reminded why Germany, as a country, is an awful, despicable, horrible country.

I bet his in-laws love having him visit…

Destination Unknown

Throughout the last several years, conservatives tired of listening to liberals suggest that perhaps America needs some adjustments and new leadership have uttered that wonderful challenge, “If you don’t love America, why don’t you get out?”

It’s implied that the destination can be Canada with its high taxes and horrid universal healthcare, Sweden with its […]


I suppose it is hardly news, but I must confess, McCain is turning out to be even sleazier than I could have possibly anticipated.

And it seems endemic to all Republicans.

I was reading one of the British Quality papers a day or two ago, and the Obama campaign has a squad of people who […]

Dire Emergency

I got the note below from the American Family Association and by God, I am now worried! Pastor Don is convinced that the world will end if the liberals win.

Dear Adam,

The upcoming election is the most critical election in the history […]

Republican Values

What mean spirited Christians! I thought their God was an all loving God…
