The Harsh Truth About Gun Violence: We’re Not Going to do a Damn Thing About It


Sometimes I sit back and think to myself, “I can’t believe there are tens of millions of people in this country who honestly believe that our Second Amendment is meant to give citizens the right to violently overthrow the government.” It’s just so absolutely absurd. The United States has the most powerful military that’s ever [...]

Atheist Bill Maher Slams Catholic Rick Santorum: ‘I Like the Pope Better Than You Do!’ (Video)


While I make no secret of the fact that I am a Christian, I also don’t hide the fact that I’m not the biggest fan of organized religion. In organized religion I see nothing but humans taking faith and twisting it for their own desires. If you ask me, faith is meant to be a [...]

Mike Huckabee on Fox News: Planned Parenthood is No Better Than Terrorists (Video)


Republicans opposing the Constitutional right for women in this country to have an abortion is nothing new. Despite the fact that this issue was settled over 40 years ago by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade, the GOP continues to try to do everything it possibly can to prevent women from being able to have [...]

Jeb Bush Blatantly Lies About Planned Parenthood in Desperate Attempt to Save His Campaign


It’s not exactly a secret that most Republicans oppose the Constitutional right for women to have control over their own bodies, including choosing for themselves whether or not to have an abortion. Even though this issue was settled over 40 years ago, Republicans continue to do anything and everything they possibly can to deny women [...]

A Message To Kentucky Clerks Likely Trying To Become Rich Off Bigotry: #GoFundYourself


It’s been over two months since the Supreme Court ruled that bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional. Naturally, this ruling didn’t sit well with many Republicans who somehow believe religion plays a part in this country’s legal definition of marriage. These tend to be the folks who think “religious freedom” means they have the right to force [...]

Ted Cruz Reaches New Low, Uses Tombstones Of Dead Soldiers to Fearmonger About Religious Freedom


I make no apologies concerning my utter disdain for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). Maybe I’m biased because I live in Texas, but for my money he’s easily one of the worst members of Congress – if not the worst. Practically everything he says is just some pre-rehearsed talking point that’s usually a flat-out lie. It still amazes [...]

Liberal Blog Shamefully Uses Blatantly False Headline to Exploit the Deaths of Alison Parker and Adam Ward


On the heels of yet another horrific shooting, it should come as no surprise that many aspects of the media tried to exploit a tragedy to make as much money as they possibly can. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about thoughtful op-eds concerning guns or gun violence, or actual news reporting based on [...]

Jeb Bush Reaches New Low in Sad Attack Against Donald Trump


Let’s face it, the only reason why Donald Trump is leading the field of seventeen Republican candidates is because he’s better at being a Republican than these other candidates. By that I mean he panders to bigotry, ignorance, racism, hate, paranoia and idiocy better than probably all of the other candidates combined. That’s saying something, [...]

Ted Cruz Makes A Fool Out Of Himself During Interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly (Video)


During his short time in the Senate, Ted Cruz has proven himself to be an absolute joke. It baffles me that there are millions of people in this country who actually take this clown seriously. Not only is he one of the most ridiculous politicians we have in this country, but almost nothing he says is [...]

Republican Party Contemplating Desperate Move to Take Out Donald Trump, Rig Primary Election


I will admit, following politics as much as I do, practically nothing surprises me anymore. From unbelievably ridiculous campaign ads to comments that seem straight out of a Saturday Night Live sketch, often our political process is just one big circus. That being said, every once in a while something does come along that surprises me [...]
