Bought And Paid For: Wisconsin Supreme Court Saves Scott Walker From Corruption Charges

I don’t regularly follow the politics of Wisconsin extremely closely, but something just doesn’t seem right about that state. By all accounts, Scott Walker has been a below average governor, isn’t even very popular and was damn near booted out of office just a couple of years after being elected. Yet somehow he won re-election this past […]

Guns, God and Bullsh*t: The Real Truth About the Republican Party


Long ago I reached my tipping point with Republicans as far as it pertains to me being able to take the vast majority of them seriously. It’s not that I want to have such a massive divide between myself and my conservative counterparts, it’s just that I can’t deal with people who are completely irrational. […]

Jon Stewart Hilariously Mocks Mike Huckabee Without Saying a Single Word (Video)


In one of the most unique segments I’ve ever seen on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart managed to hilariously mock Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee – without saying a single word. All he did was comically react in various ways to several clips of Huckabee saying all sorts of absurd and ridiculous things. Of course, this all […]

Confederate Flag Supporters Purposefully Terrorize Black Child’s Birthday Party (Video)


It’s not a “hot topic” like it was a few weeks ago, but the debate over the Confederate flag is still circulating around the Internet. While I’m not being constantly bombarded on my Twitter account by people trying to proclaim the flag isn’t tied to racism, I still get the occasional Facebook message from the random […]

Hypocrite Bobby Jindal is Threatening to Arrest People who Use Religion to Justify Hatred


Our First Amendment is sometimes a tricky thing, the two biggest caveats obviously being freedom of speech and freedom of religion. In fact, those two aspects of our First Amendment often intertwine. The trick to the “freedom of…” is that for the most part you don’t get to pick and choose who enjoys those freedoms. When you […]

Mike Huckabee Reaches Disgusting New Low with Latest Obama Nazi Reference

Mike Huckabee Fox Rumors

While Donald Trump gets a lot of the negative press, I still view presidential candidate Mike Huckabee with far more disdain. Trump is clearly more abrasive and vulgar than Huckabee, but at least the eccentric billionaire doesn’t go around pretending to be some holier-than-thou Bible-thumper pushing radical religious fear-mongering. I’ll take a billionaire loud-mouthed bigot over […]

55 Years For Pot: John Oliver Exposes The Horrors Of Sentencing Guidelines (Video)


Over the last few years I’ve become a fairly staunch advocate for a complete overhaul of our criminal justice system. In particular, the way we treat drug and other non-violent offenses. While I’m not saying those who distribute, sell or traffic drugs shouldn’t face punishment, I just think it’s absurd how we’re literally ruining lives […]

Let Me Explain Why Donald Trump is an Absolute Genius


I’m not going to lie, the more I study Donald Trump the Republican presidential candidate, the more I think he just might be an absolute genius. Now don’t get me wrong, I still think he’s a vile human being, but as a Republican presidential candidate he might just be brilliant. Let’s start out with how […]

Rachel Maddow Busts Rand Paul Trying to Hide the Shame of His Dwindling Campaign


As most of you might have heard, Sen. Rand Paul is running for president. Though I wouldn’t blame anyone who might have forgotten that he is a presidential candidate considering it’s been a few months since he announced and the GOP field has become laughably crowded. We’re approaching a point where it’s going to be […]

Donald Trump Just Said Something That Wasn’t Offensive, But It Should Terrify Republicans


The entire “Donald Trump the Republican presidential candidate” saga has absolutely fascinated me. While the talking heads in the media continually try to break down “The Donald,” the fact of the matter is his rise to the top of the Republican presidential circus shouldn’t really surprise anyone. After all, Trump may very well be the perfect […]
