It’s Wednesdog!

This week’s Wednesdog is brought to you by Talulah (surprise, surprise).


Talulah thoroughly enjoyed our recent travels to Carbondale and Michigan.

While we were in Michigan for that one weekend, we left Talulah with our house guest and all our new friends we made that weekend. Talulah absolutely LOVED her time playing on the beach with seven people who thought she was the bee’s knees.

When Tina I returned on Saturday night and resumed beach fun on Sunday, Talulah has what we call a “puppy hangover.” But Talulah’s a child, and she’ll work herself up to try and keep up with chasing the ball and following everyone around.

So enjoy these couple shots of Lu dog getting her beach on.



21. Teach your chitlins right! Tell your boys you don’t answer to no woman … spit to the ding.

Consider this funny if it weren’t so asinine. The guy in this video tells the interviewer that he doesn’t listen to no woman.

I mean, it’s biblical. So I see where he’s coming from. But holy hell, isn’t it 2012 when picking and choosing is the way the kids operate?

Oh, and he claims to be from Mars … naturally.

About the vid:

A man accused of dumping tree parts on a Detroit street tells a reporter “I don’t listen to women.” The man – Ihor Stetkewycz of Warren, Michigan – also claims to be from Mars. More on the story here.

See you next Tuesday Nooner: Democrats for Santorum

About the video:

Democrats: Vote Santorum. For now. Really enjoy it.

To any who oppose such tactics on moral grounds, one might ask if they’re part of the same group of people who oft bemoan the passive, compromise-y tactics of the current administration. Be the change you’ve been waiting for, and so forth.

To those who say Santorum is an actual threat in national polls because Rasmussen has him up by three amongst left-handed seniors or whatever: whatever. Careful observers will note that in a field of candidates this jaw-droppingly lame, everybody gets a taste of sweet sweet candy–if only for a moment.…

Santorum: Obama “A Snob” For Wanting Everyone To Go To College

Santorum called Obama a “snob” because he said he wants everyone to go to college. Santorum says that a college education means that students will become indoctrinated by liberal professors.

As if the first 18 years of a kid’s life isn’t enough time for parents and churches to take ahold of a brain.

And what happened to yours truly, who went to a conservative Presbyterian college … and turned out liberal?

It’s not Santorum I’m worried about here, either. It’s the audience who is clapping for such insanity.

Santorum’s opening his mouth, we should clap!

Imagine that: education = a bad thing.

Don’t get smart, ya’ll, that’ll lead to godless hedonism. Stay all dumb and shit so you can raise your stupid kids right.

It’s more like Santorum doesn’t want an educated constituency. Allah forbid any of them knew how to think for themselves.




Rob Bell: Love Wins

There’s a new book from Rob Bell, a Christian pastor from Michigan, called “Love Wins” coming out at the end of March. I’ve read Rob Bell before, and he’s not horrible.

One of my uncles doesn’t think he qualifies as a Christian, so that means he must be doing something right.

Here’s what the book is about:

[Love Wins is a] Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived.

Rob Bell addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—the afterlife—arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever…? With searing insight, Bell puts hell on trial, and his message is decidedly hopeful—eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. And ultimately, Love Wins.

Resident regular-reading believer Julie Ferwerda posted this video on facebook the other day, and I thought I would at least act as a sort of proponent of the book here. I certainly don’t agree with the message, but I can see the value in the message. It appears more and more Christians are sincerely trying to bridge the gap between Christianity and other ways of thought. And for that, we have to at least give it a nod.

WordPress won’t let me embed these videos, but give it a watch. It’s worth it at least for the photography and production value.

If I get my hands on a copy, I’d love to at least review it here.
