Guns vs. Ebola: The Great Republican Hypocrisy


Since the dawn of conservatism, the one belief that’s been a constant is their staunch anti-government stance. This nation fought a Civil War because southern conservatives believed that their states had the right to own human beings as property. These Confederate states seceded from the United States over what they claimed was an “illegal” push […]

Rush Limbaugh Pushes Conspiracy that Voter Fraud Might Be the Reason Why Democrats Keep the Senate


You know how often I heard the term “voter fraud” prior to 2008? Practically never. You know why that phrase was rarely uttered? Because voter fraud isn’t – and has never been – an issue. And no matter how much Republicans try to act like it is, it’s just not. There’s absolutely zero evidence anywhere showing that […]

A Message to All Liberals: Stop Complaining, Get Off Your Asses and Go Vote

I’m not sure if I’ve ever been more frustrated with liberals than I have been heading into this year’s midterm elections. If Democrats lose the Senate in a couple of weeks, we might as well just write-off the last two years of Obama’s presidency. Because if you thought Republican obstruction has been bad these last […]

Conservative Author Defends Confederacy, Wants South to Secede and Name New Country ‘Reagan’


Former Reagan administration aide and conservative columnist Douglas MacKinnon recently came out with a new book titled The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creation a Traditional Values Country…Now.  Now, I know you’re probably wondering why you should care about what this person has to say. Well, because a move to secede isn’t as “radical” as […]

Ted Cruz Busted by Fact-Checking Site for Lying About Obama’s Surgeon General Nominee


Republicans opposing someone who President Obama has nominated for any number of positions is nothing new. In fact, Republicans opposing nearly anything and everything the president does is nothing new. It’s essentially been the motto of the GOP since he was elected in 2008. And when it comes to lying about the president, Texas Senator […]

Greg Abbott Refused to Answer Whether or Not He Would Have Supported Ending Bans on Interracial Marriage

greg abbott

There are many questions we can be asked that don’t have a simple “yes” or “no” answer to them. But then there are those questions that shouldn’t be difficult to answer, such as whether or not interracial marriage should be legal. The answer, unless you’re a racist or a bigot, should clearly be “yes.” Well, not […]

New Pew Study Exposes Rush Limbaugh for the Fraud That He Is


Rush Limbaugh is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable names in all of conservative media. Though I’m not sure if you could call what he does “news.” He’s really nothing more than a right-wing pandering shock jock who’s made millions by essentially saying outrageously offensive things on purpose to get people riled up. But no […]

Fox News Host Degrades Young Women, Says They Should Stick with Tinder or Match.com


When it comes to voting demographics, females are one of the groups that drive me the most insane. For the life of me, I really don’t get why so many women vote Republican. Just take the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 for instance. Of the 535 members of Congress (House and Senate), there […]

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, […]
