In many ways, the Ashley Madison hack is a perfect victimless crime. I mean, sure, there are “victims,” but they are not victims we are morally bound to give a rat’s ass about. Do you feel bad for the low-level Falcone thugs who have their 4th, 5th, and 8th amendment rights violated by Batman? In the words of Mr. Blond »
The moments when ESPN does something for the public good are practically nonexistent. Yet for all the times that I have poked fun at Bristol or ridiculed its on-air “talent” it is time to praise ESPN for spearheading a legal battle that benefits all of us. »
I had assumed that Tasers and stun guns were protected under the Second Amendment right to bear arms. I also assumed spears were protected. And shuriken. I was pretty sure that this violent-ass amendment could be used as a justification to protect an implement that a man can project into another man to cause harm or… »
In Virginia, some lady ordered a package from Lowe’s (the place that Home Depot pretends to be) and ordered the store not to send a black delivery man. Somebody at Lowe’s agreed. And so they called Marcus Bradley back from his delivery route and replaced him with a white driver to take the package to the racist lady’s… »
I know there are a lot of Jets haters out there, but this team should be celebrated for the gifts it just keeps on giving. »
What’s going on right now with some members of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Bernie Sanders, and some of the white liberals who support him is really complicated. The most progressive candidate running for president getting hit from the left by some African-American female activists might be surprising. But the… »
Dear God, we need more lawyers. We need more lawyers who are better able to help the nation’s dumbest people, because our dumb need protection from our worst judges.
Amid this wave of cops shooting unarmed black people, you’ve got a lot of people asking if cops just started shooting people, or if modern technology is just catching cops doing what they’ve always been doing.
Some men just want to watch the world burn. And those men probably wish they had the idea to use a drone to drop heroin and pot in the middle of a prison yard in Cleveland.
When is it too early to start teaching children that cops can be frighteningly violent based on minimal provocation on the part of weaker victims? It’s never too early, evidently.
The backlash to the backlash has started. First, Walter Palmer was tarred and feathered on the internet for killing Cecil-the-Lion. Now, Palmer has received death threats and had to close his dentistry practice and so the internet is worried about mob justice. Jason Gilbert on Fusion is spot-on. We all know that this… »
I feel really bad for Cecil-the-Lion. But it’s hard to feel like we, as a country, have any standing to be morally outraged about the death of a lion when you watch the video of Samuel-the-Black-Man get shot in the face during a traffic stop over a missing license plate. Hamilton (Ohio) County Prosecutor Joe Deters… »
President Barack Obama plans to make Pell grants available to a limited number of prisoners as part of a pilot program. Pell grants are federal loans for tuition, books, and other education expenses that are available to low income students. Prisoners are people, though our system tends to treat them like undead… »
In an alternate universe, Defaltegate ends after the AFC Championship game. Tom Brady strides to the podium and says “I like the footballs with as little air pressure as possible, I didn’t know we crossed the lower threshold. When the refs informed me, we went out and scored 478 points in the second half. I’m Tom… »
