America’s Also-Ran Industrial Complex

Also Ran Candidates

Tina Dupuy: There’s a pretty sizable, well-fed group of people who make a living pretending they want to be president: starting super-PACs, collecting speaking fees, selling email lists, selling books, scaring granny into buying gold coins, scaring grampy into buying doomsday survival kits.

A Tale of Two Christmases

Millions March

Tina Dupuy: Now we have a legally immune, self-policing, occupying army with a widely acknowledged racial bias loose in our cities. And your personal experience with them is largely based on your income level, age and race.

Thank Secularists for Christmas

Is America Christian

Tina Dupuy: We’re a nation of mainly Christians but not even really good Christians. We go to church as much as Europeans, we just lie about it more. Churches are closing down and filing for bankruptcy, yet Americans tell pollsters they’re in church every Sunday.

Officer Darren Wilson Isn’t the Point

Ferguson Institutionalized Racism

Tina Dupuy: There’s a tendency among those unwilling to accept the idea of institutionalized racism to err on the side of the law and believe police wouldn’t be stopping and arresting black people if they weren’t committing crimes. When you’re in handcuffs everyone looks guilty.

Republicans Can Stop Pretending They Want Immigration Reform

Republican Immigration Reform

Tina Dupuy: Republicans get to be morally superior. “We’re a nation of laws,” they regurgitate. Unless you’re the company hiring all the cheap labor with little ability to redress grievances, then we’re a nation of turning a blind eye and enjoying the cheap goods and services.

Think Over ‘Under God’

Atheists Pledge of Allegiance

Tina Dupuy: The Pledge is a jingoistic chant created by a children’s publication to celebrate an explorer turned brutal torture-happy tyrant with a Hitler salute. It’s not the best tradition we have in this country.

The Governors Who Cried Quarantine

Cuomo Christie Quarantine

Tina Dupuy: The failure of leadership during Hurricane Katrina was vast and widespread, but it started way before the storm. It started with leaders erring on the side of hysteria coupled with the disaster-porn fetish of 24-hour cable news.

Decriminalize Poverty; End the War on Drugs

End War on Drugs

Tina Dupuy: If you added up all of the per-capita incarceration rates of every other English-speaking country, they’d still have a lower rate than the U.S. We lock up more than Russia. Way more than China. We lead the world in warehousing humans.

Please Politicize Ebola

Politicizing Ebola

Tina Dupuy: We should politicize Ebola because the outbreak is a perfect example of why government dysfunction is needlessly hazardous to our health.

Congress Supports War

Congress Supports War

Tina Dupuy: Saying they want universal coverage with mostly private insurance along with Medicare but not Obamacare is like saying they want highways maintained by a federal agency with the initials D.O.T.—but not by the Department of Transportation.

On the Internet, There’s No Such Thing as a True Science Denier

Science Denier

Tina Dupuy: It’s understandable how religious people bristle at science. They’ve grown accustomed to being able to carve out exactly what they like from religious texts, leaving the objectionable stuff behind.
