‘Insane leftists FTW’! This anti-Hobby Lobby protest sign takes the crazy cake [pics]


People who like to call themselves “pro-choicers” have descended upon the Supreme Court today to protest the right of Christian-owned Hobby Lobby to not offer health care coverage for contraception that could kill a developing embryo.


Naturally, they’ve brought some of their best artwork with them:



Now, we all know it’s tough to top a stuffed uterus. But this sign may have done it:


Dude … dude?


Persuasive as usual, libs!

Truth-ache! Nutshelled: Don’t miss this perfect Obamacare ‘glitch’ pic


Instant classic? We say, “hells yes.”

The O-care health insurance exchange websites remain error-riddled today. The White House is hilariously touting the number of visitors, but conveniently does not know how many have actually enrolled (wink wink, nudge nudge).

Perhaps they should borrow that photo for placement on the websites. It says it all.


‘Metaphor alert!’ WH touts high number of visitors to O-care website; Enrolled? Crickets

Day 2: DoL official says healthcare.gov is ‘open for business’; Twitter users say otherwise

It’s so popular! Congressman says Conn. Obamacare applications skyrocket to 167

Patience exhausted: MSNBC reporter tries to sign up for O-care exchange on air, gives up

Getting worse! Fed marketplace, state O-Care exchanges: Guys, you can ‘keep’ errors [pics]

‘Classic’ @BarackObama beclowning: ‘Obamacare is here’; So is hilarious mockery

Heckuva job! @HealthCareGov shamed into apology after touting glitchy O-care website

Oops! California’s health insurance exchange: It’s you? And spelling is hard [pic]

Online adventures with Obamacare: Reps admit ‘known’ security bug, but ‘please be patient,’ guys

‘So much for security!’ Health insurance websites continue ‘head desk’ fail

Hilarious! DNC touts ‘what affordable care looks like’; Citizens: Fixed it for you, DNC! [pics]

Surprise! Obamacare health insurance exchange websites don’t work; HealthCare.gov a total mess

Instead Of Building Playgrounds For Children, These Cities Are Building Parks For Seniors

Communities need safe places for children to run and play. After all, children are our future…and raising an entire generation of future leaders can sometimes take an entire community. But what about the older generations? They shouldn’t be forgotten.

And, now, there are companies helping seniors stay happy and active.

This may look like a normal playground, but it’s for seniors. Not children.

The populations of many countries are getting older — and to help senior citizens stay healthy, some cities are building senior playgrounds.

People are living longer, and as we age, we can’t stop being active. That’s why countries like Spain are installing these positive hubs in communities.

Not only do these playgrounds help improve physical health, the parks also provide mental and social stimulation to its visitors. These senior playgrounds are social gathering places, too. Older generations are at risk for feeling isolated or depressed, but these parks encourage senior citizens to get out of the house and stay positive.

It may seem silly at first, but these kinds of projects help the senior community around the world.

These parks have exercise equipment such as elliptical machines, stationary bikes, and hand-eye dexterity games. They are all low-impact and easy for the seniors to use.

Companies like Must Have Play know that it’s important to keep seniors active — and hopefully their parks will begin to catch on in America like they have in Europe.

‘Oh, karma’: Ghouls rush to blame Rick Warren for son’s suicide


@rubinreport It sounds like his son had SERIOUS mental health issues beyond depression.

— GayPatriot (@GayPatriot) April 6, 2013

@gaypatriot I would imagine. But if you’re gay and your dad is the biggest preacher in the country it could lead to mental health problems.

— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) April 6, 2013

As more and more news outlets report the tragic death of Pastor Rick Warren’s son, it’s clear that no one knows anything beyond what Warren revealed in an email to staff announcing the suicide. We’re certain that even Warren, who wrote that son Matthew decided to take his own life “in spite of America’s best doctors, meds, counselors, and prayers for healing,” is asking why such a tragedy had to happen. While some are simply asking the questions that anyone might ask, many ghouls are laying blame at the feet of Warren himself.

@rickwarren your son died due to your anti-gay hate toward gay people including your son..

— boymv18 (@boymv18) April 6, 2013

Son of Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren has committed suicide. Place your bets on when its discovered he was gay. #ReligionKills #TCOT 

— ReallyRick (@TheReallyRick) April 6, 2013

Trust me, I AM being as charitable as I can be about hateful bigoted Pastor Rick Warren’s obvious failure with his own son!#Christian #Bible

— ✰Ҡℒăąẗμ βẵℜąḋⒶ Ñîḵẗø (@BlazePhoenix_) April 6, 2013

@blazephoenix_ I would’ve committed suicide if my dad was Rick Warren too.

— Rashid Hussein Obama (@rashid7053) April 6, 2013

I wonder if Rick Warren’s son was gay and killed himself because of his father’s anti-gay bashing?

— Mark Andrew Croft (@War_of_Kings) April 6, 2013

So what are the odds that Matthew Warren was gay and his father’s rhetoric contributed to his depression and suicide?

— Matt (@tpamatt) April 6, 2013

Rick Warren’s son committed suicide. They never say what his “mental illness” was. Being gay is a “mental illness” according to Warren.

— Michael Ditto (@janus303) April 6, 2013

@cnnbrk evilbible.com rick warren is a gay basher, rape, misogyny, slavery, incest & pedophelia condoner! son suicide #atheists

Is homophobic preacher Rick the prick warrenresponsible for his sons death? Remember he contributes $$ to Uganda where gays were murdered!

— WILLEM KRAAL (@WILLEM6) April 6, 2013

Pastor Rick Warren never let up his bigotry while gay youth’s parents were grieving. Now he is grieving his own son’s suicide. Oh, #karma.

— David Tessaro (@davetessaro) April 6, 2013

Dear Rick Warren: now U know the “anguished grief” parents of gay teen suicides feel after listening 2 U and UR ilk’s anti-gay hate speech.

— Jeffrey Christian (@jeffreychrist) April 6, 2013

A lot of degenerates like @6kidneybean hoping Rick Warren’s son was gay so they can attack religion: twitter.com/6kidneybean/st…

— El SOOPer!! (@SooperMexican) April 6, 2013

Blogger Sooper Mexican did his best to compile some of the most offensive remarks before they were deleted, but sadly, we don’t imagine there will be a shortage of new ones any time soon as long as Christians are involved.

Seriously, find a heart if your reaction to a Rick Warren’s son’s suicide is snark or hate.
