Breaking Down the Mental Instability of the Radical Gun Fanatic


I had a short back and forth with a gentleman online yesterday who I would label a certifiable gun nut. Though I’m sure he just sees himself as a “proud patriotic American.” It was clear from the start that nothing I was going to say to him would ever alter his beliefs about guns. In […]

The Real Reason Why Republicans are ‘Outraged’ Over President Obama’s ‘Strategy’ Comment


It was the comment heard round the world: the moment when President Obama stepped up to the microphone during a press conference and dared to say that he doesn’t yet have a strategy for dealing with ISIS. Which is exactly what I think he should have said. But all day yesterday, whenever I flipped on […]

Hillary Clinton Finally Spoke Out on Ferguson and What She Said Was Absolutely Brilliant


For nearly three weeks, people from both sides of the political spectrum have asked, “Where’s Hillary Clinton’s comments on Ferguson?” Which is to be expected. She’s a very prominent public figure and likely 2016 presidential candidate (and probable winner). So, naturally, people wanted to know what she had to say. But, alas, it was nearly […]

President Obama was Right: The Truth About Violence and the World in Which We Live


On Friday, President Obama made a comment about social media that’s apparently offended a few folks. Shocking, right? That never happens. Well, this particular comment pertained to social media and how it affects how we view the world. Obama said, “And the truth of the matter is, is that the world has always been messy. In part, we’re […]

Real Christianity vs. Whatever The Heck It Is Conservatives Actually Follow


For a while now I’ve been a big advocate for reclaiming Christianity back from the radical right-wing fake Christians who’ve hijacked it for far too long. I’ve just grown absolutely sick and tired of people associating Christianity with whatever it is these conservatives seem to worship. Because it sure as heck isn’t Christianity. I’ve called […]

Prediction: Our Incompetent Congress is About to Screw Up Everything To Do with ISIS


As ISIS continues to become a huge problem not for just the United States, but the entire world, it’s clear that something must be done. We must stop this radical Islamic terrorist group from achieving their ultimate goal of creating a massive Islamic state ruled by their extreme and barbaric leadership. And, to his credit, […]

Why Obama’s ‘Don’t Have a Strategy’ Comment on ISIS was Exactly What He Should Have Said


Sometimes I just sit back in awe of how ridiculous people can be. I get that I’m somewhat part of the “media” and a large part of what I do is dissecting comments made by politicians. But like with most everything I do in life, I try to take emotion out of it and see […]

Breaking: Federal Judge Halts Key Part of Texas’ New Controversial Anti-Choice Law


Last summer, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D) became a national sensation when she bravely fought for women’s rights in Texas during a nearly 13-hour filibuster to block a controversial law that would have restricted women’s rights within the state. Though her efforts were brave, and temporarily successful, they ultimately fell short of blocking the […]

Texas State Senator Slams Fellow Republicans, Admits Radical Conservative Policies are Ruining Texas


It doesn’t happen all that often, but every once in a while I’ll run across a Republican who said something that actually made sense. It seems Texas Republican State Sen. Kevin Eltife is a little fed up with Republicans who seem more concerned with pandering to his party’s rhetoric instead of actually, you know, governing.  He […]

Hosts on Fox News’ ‘Outnumbered’ Defend Sexual Harassment: ‘Let Men Be Men’ (Video)


Most people who follow me probably know that I’m not always the biggest fan of people who go overboard with being “politically correct.” I think nowadays some people are going entirely too far with it. It seems we’re approaching a point in our society to where people can’t say anything without it offending someone. It’s as […]
