Republicans Have Sold the Soul of the American Worker to the Devil Known as Corporate Greed


Not too long ago, I joked with a friend that I sometimes wish Republicans would take over all of Congress and the White House for 12 years and pass anything they wanted. That way, after those 12 years, we would never have to worry about Republicans ever having power again. Though the obvious problem with […]

Conservative Radio Host Mocks Troops Suffering from PTSD as ‘Weak,’ Belittles Those Suffering from Depression


Normally, protocol would dictate that I offer some kind of introduction as to what the reader is about to read. But in this instance, nothing I say can possibly even come close to describing the absolute and total ignorance that I just came across. So, since I can’t do this abomination I just heard justice, […]

10 Republican Talking Points and What Conservatives Really Mean When They Say Them


While there’s almost no shortage of things about which I can criticize the Republican party, one area that I don’t hesitate to admit that they’re masters of is propaganda. If Fox News says it, you can damn sure bet conservatives all over this country will be parroting it within 24-48 hours. Words and phrases repeated […]

John Oliver Delivers One of His Best Segments Yet – And Nobody Seems to Care (Video)


I’ve watched every episode of John Oliver’s new HBO show Last Week Tonight since it debuted a few months ago. Besides the quality of the information presented on the show, I think what’s drawn me in the most is that Oliver seems to go out of his way to cover stories people need to care more about. […]

Fox News Panelist Defends President Obama, Slams Tactics Her Network Often Uses Against Him (Video)


As most of us know, about 95 percent of what keeps Fox News going these days is devoting nearly every show on their network to bashing President Obama. Pretty much no matter what the president says or does, Fox News is often right there to tell conservatives exactly why it’s the worst thing that’s ever […]

Ted Cruz Looks Like an Absolute Idiot Discussing Ebola During CNN Interview (Video)


Texas Sen. Ted Cruz epitomizes pretty much everything that’s wrong with politicians. He has no ethics and almost everything he says is nothing more than his attempt to pander to voters hoping it will advance his own personal agenda. I’ve said numerous times that I fully believe the only reason why Cruz became a senator […]

Ridiculous Yahoo Article Tries to Exploit Sexual Harassment for the Sake of Fake Outrage


I might get slammed for my opinion on this, and that’s fine. But I just ran across a Yahoo! Sports article that made me ashamed that I actually bothered to even read it. It started out when I saw the headline: Tristan Thompson kisses a sideline reporter, and he really, really screwed up. For those of you who […]

What The Hell Have Republicans Really Done For Conservative Voters?


Conservatives like to go on and on about the horrific policies of the Obama administration and how terrible Democrats are. But something that I seem to always notice is missing is what their party has done for them. See, as a liberal who voted for President Obama, I can tell you what he’s done for this country: […]

What the Hell More Do Americans Want From President Obama?


It goes without saying that the honeymoon is definitely over for President Obama, and it has been for quite some time. His approval rating teeters near all-time lows, while it’s looking very bleak for his party heading into this year’s midterms. And while I understand that no president is ever more popular than their first […]

BREAKING: Michael Dunn Sentenced to Life Without Parole for Murder of Jordan Davis


I’m sure many of you are aware of the 2012 shooting in Florida where Michael Dunn claimed he was “standing his ground” when he shot and killed unarmed teenager Jordan Davis. While this story would have normally made headlines anyway, the attention given to it was amplified by the George Zimmerman case where he was […]
