TX Senator Pathetically Takes to Twitter to Mock Thousands of Americans Who Won’t Be Able to Vote


Voter ID laws, or as I like to call them the modern day poll tax, have sparked quite the debate these last few years. In fact, I was forced to pay a poll tax in Texas this year before I was allowed to vote. Since Republicans can’t just outright charge Americans for their right to vote, […]

Jon Stewart Slams Republican Stupidity in Texas, Asks ‘What Would Jesus Shoot?’ (Video)


Being a liberal in Texas isn’t easy. I’m constantly surrounded by people who literally seem to make up reality as they go along. Many of these people see facts as opinions and believe the Bible is more credible than science books. Needless to say, I get frustrated from time to time. Well, on last night’s episode […]

Fox News’ Doctor Ablow Pushes for Global ‘American Jihad’ on Every Other Nation on Earth (Video)


Fox News’ “medical expert” Keith Ablow is quickly making a name for himself as one of the most deplorable members of the media.  It’s a true testament to the despicable nature of Fox News that someone like Ablow is often featured on the network. He’s a fanatic, a fraud and an absolute scumbag. Well recently […]

Danny Trejo Teams With Jon Stewart To Expose The Dangers Of Latinos In Texas


Immigration is one topic that’s almost guaranteed to spark a fairly intense debate. And while I definitely have my views on how we should handle both legal and illegal immigration, the issue itself is not as simple as some try to make it out to be. Many people on the left believe that we should […]

Jon Stewart Remakes Koch Brothers Commercial So That It Actually Tells The Truth (Video)


I guess if you’re worth billions of dollars, it doesn’t really matter if you waste some of it advertising on a show with an audience that’s clearly not in your typical “targeted demographic.” So while it’s a bit surprising to hear that the Koch brothers bought themselves some propaganda ad space on The Daily Show, I guess it […]

Stephen Colbert Perfectly Mocks Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert’s Epic Stupidity (Video)


While there are many politicians currently serving in our government who have no business being in the position that they’re in, there are some who I have absolutely no idea how they managed to get elected. Those whose ignorance is so profound that it’s difficult to wrap your brain around the fact that people willingly […]

Sarah Palin Makes Ridiculous Comments About Her ‘Haters’ On Fox Business (Video)


Who would have ever thought back in the summer of 2008 that a presidential candidate choosing his vice presidential running mate would have unleashed such misery upon this country. Prior to John McCain’s VP pick in 2008, I’m willing to bet almost nobody outside of Alaska had ever heard of Sarah Palin. And considering how […]

The Dangerous and Idiotic Obsession Millions of Americans Have with Guns Has to Stop


I’m a firm believer in the right for every American to own a gun for self defense; in fact, I own one myself. That being said, how many guns and how many bullets do we need to defend ourselves from criminals? In the average Americans lifetime, how often will they fire a gun in self defense? […]

My Experience Dealing with the Poll Tax I Must Pay Before I Can Vote in Texas


Election day is quickly approaching, and all over the country there’s talk of strict new voter ID laws that have been passed in many Republican-controlled states. And as it just so happens, I live in Texas; one of the many states that have passed these new strict voter ID laws. Well, by complete and total […]

Rand Paul Wants You To Be So Fearful Of Ebola That He’ll Lie Through His Teeth To Make It Happen


It’s no secret that I think Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is a spineless fool who’s going to say and do whatever he feels like he has to do in order to win the GOP nomination in 2016. While there are other politicians I despise more (Ted Cruz, John Boehner, Louie Gohmert), in my book Rand […]
