I know it’s hard not to blame websites and services like Paypal or for refusing to help WikiLeaks in their time of need and protection. But the truth is that they are victims as well of the same brutal bullying that’s causing so much grief for WikiLeaks. Rather than blame them for caving in to great and dangerous pressures from an undefeatable opponent, you should rather aim your outrage and rebellion at the true culprit: the censorial tyrants of the US Government.

  • Lifelong quadriplegic man not allowed to refuse life-sustaining medical treatment because he is “depressed”. Another example showing how laws need to be based circumstantially, not absolutely.

  • I tried counting the number of falsehoods in this (mercifully) brief exchange with Gretchen Carlson and Bill O’Reilly on the subject of atheist Christmas billboards, but my brain went on strike claiming cruel and unusual punishment.

  • US Air Force now using nearly two thousand PS3s as a supercomputer [pictured]. No, seriously. And I don’t even have one. *sad face*

  • *Gigglesnort* Oh, so true …
