Grope and Vote for Roy Moore!

Grope and Vote for Roy Moore!

As Martyman fans know, our hero loves to dress up for the holidays. In fact, just a few minutes ago, Martyman walked into my office and asked if I would take his picture, so he could include it in the thousands of Christmas cards he was mailing out. I was just about to click the […]

From the Liberal Ten Commandments, #8

From the Liberal Ten Commandments, #8

Imagine if the United States had an egomaniacal president who thought he was smart enough to drop nuclear bombs here and there without negative consequences. What if you could go back to AD 31 and present the people of Galilee with a new liberal version of the Ten Commandments? How would that affect our culture […]

Caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Caribou in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Marty’s photo of the day #2370: These caribou are in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—the most pristine and remote region in the United States. In the coming weeks, greedy Republicans will likely open up parts of this refuge to oil drilling. “Praise, Jesus!” they will say, as they rape the land for oil company profits […]

National jewel soon to be poisoned

Marty’s photo of the day #2369: This is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge—the most pristine and remote region in the United States. In the coming weeks, greedy Republicans will likely open up parts of this refuge to oil drilling. “Praise, Jesus!” they will say, as they rape the land for oil company profits and political […]

The Republican Party in a nutshell

The Republican Party in a nutshell

The Republican Party is a cult that preys on gullible people and gets them to vote against themselves. That’s why America doesn’t have universal health care, and why so many Republicans still believe that global warming is a hoax. Republican leaders built their cult by pretending to be good Christians and getting the far-right Christian […]

The Cult of Republicanism

The Cult of Republicanism

A cult is a group of people that shuts out conflicting information and rejects facts in favor of an alternative reality. It’s time to call today’s Republican Party what it is: a cult. The Republican Party hasn’t always been a cult, but you can trace its conversion to one to the late 1980s and the […]

Republicans: What is your moral justification?

Republicans: What is your moral justification?

Hey, Republicans! A few of my Democratic friends have criticized me for being too hard on you. Being a liberal, one of the requirements I put on myself is to be open-minded. That being the case, here is your chance to tell me to shut up. For this discussion, let’s start with some basic facts: […]

Martyman demands royalties!

Martyman demands royalties!

Marty’s photo of the day #2071: Yay! I have finished writing my new science fiction comedy novel (or at least I have it ready for an editor). The book even has a title: Time is Irreverent. Yesterday, I mailed out the first copy of the manuscript, and I let Martyman check it out before I […]

Watch out Martyman

Watch out Martyman

Marty’s photo of the day #2063: Watch out Martyman! Here’s what Montana’s Republican candidate for Congress, Greg Gianforte, said before going out to shoot massive numbers of prairie dogs with Donald Trump Jr.: “What can be more fun than to spend an afternoon shooting the little rodents?” When the Republican Jesus heard that, he thought, […]

Martyman cleans up his act

Martyman cleans up his act

Marty’s photo of the day #2146: If you remember where we left off yesterday, Martyman had taken a terrible fall and broken off both of his legs. Fortunately, years ago, I bought a backup body, should something ever happen to the original. As long as we were starting with a new Martyman body, I decided […]

The Republican Jesus: On Guard for Military Contractors

The Republican Jesus: On Guard for Military Contractors

Marty’s photo of the day #2127: Now that Donald Trump has released his Federal Budget Proposal, the Republican Jesus is busy guarding his money to make sure it only goes to military contractors and tax cuts for the super-rich. And, just as important, he is guarding his food to make sure it isn’t given to […]

More from the Republican Jesus

Marty’s photo of the day #2107: Now that millions on the far right believe that God has appointed Donald Trump as President of the United States, the Republican Jesus has insisted that I let him take over my photo of the day from time to time to post scripture, updated by the GOP (God’s Own […]

Five groups you can blame for President Trump—and be at least partially right

Five groups you can blame for President Trump—and be at least partially right

Tuesday’s election was so close, you can blame any group for Trump’s victory and at least be partially correct. After looking at the numbers, here are five groups that I am at least partially correct in blaming: 1) Bernie or Bust voters: By voting for a third party candidate, or by refusing to vote, you […]

Jesus talks to Republicans about Trump

Jesus talks to Republicans about Trump

“Hey Republicans! Jesus here. As people who claim to follow me, you should know that I never said anything against abortion or gay marriage, and you certainly should know that I would always support a person’s right NOT to get shot over your childish fascination with guns. Yet you say you can’t vote for Hillary […]

Evangelical Christians and their dishonest support for Donald Trump

Evangelical Christians and their dishonest support for Donald Trump

A recent PRRI poll shows that 7 out of 10 Evangelical Christians support Donald Trump for president. To me this demonstrates just how easy it is to manipulate almost any religion for personal gain. Throughout history, leaders have used religions to control people—especially women. Religions have also become handy tools for inspiring terrorism, justifying wars, and […]

My Born Again Christian father would have sat this election out

My Born Again Christian father would have sat this election out

My father died in 2011, at the age of 84. Although I loved my dad, sometimes it was hard to distinguish whether he was my parent or my “personal evangelist.” He was a Born Again Christian, who followed the Republican Party as if it were “The Father, Son, and GOP.” When we didn’t argue about […]

Martyman, rats, and mice. Oh, my!

Martyman, rats, and mice. Oh, my!

Last night, at 2:30, my dog Lucy went crazy. It wasn’t one of her normal barks. It was one of those “Dad, get up! Mass murderers are at the door!” barks. Thinking it was actually just a bear, I rolled out of bed and hurried to a window. I looked out to see a pickup […]
