Pathetic John Boehner Calls President Obama ‘Reprehensible,’ Heaps Praise on Netanyahu (Video)


It’s my opinion that when all is said and done, John Boehner will go down as one of the worst House Speakers in United States history. Not only has he presided over possibly the most dysfunctional time in our Congress’s long history, but he’s often found himself having to grovel for the cooperation of a […]

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence Embarrasses His State Even More During Bizarre Interview (Video)


The public backlash following Indiana’s passage of a law legalizing discrimination against homosexuals based on “religious beliefs” has been swift and it’s been fairly intense. Well, Indiana Governor Mike Pence decided to do an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that was easily one of the most awkward and bizarre interviews I’ve ever witnessed. Repeatedly, Stephanopoulos asked […]

It’s My Right To Discriminate Against Republicans Since I Do Not Agree With Their Lifestyle


Many conservatives who oppose equal rights for homosexuals do so based on “religious principles.” It’s a defense for ignorance that I always find amusing considering how many “biblical laws” are completely ignored because it would be almost impossible to abide by them. According to the Bible, stoning a woman to death for cheating on her […]

Elizabeth Warren Shoots Back At Wall Street’s Threats of Blackmail: ‘I’m Not Going To Stop’


In her short time in the Senate, Elizabeth Warren has become one of the biggest superstars for the progressive left. She has built a large part of her political career on being someone who’s fighting for the average American, and she’s proven time and time again that she’s not afraid to take on big banks […]

Nebraska Farmer Humiliates Big Oil Committee, Asks Them to Drink Water Polluted by Fracking (Video)


While I’m too young to remember the peak of big tobacco’s true absurdity (“doctor recommended” cigarettes, “scientific” evidence “proving” smoking isn’t unhealthy), I can’t help but feel we’re seeing almost the exact same level of ridiculousness from big oil today. Whether it’s these big energy companies funding “scientific research” to try to cast doubt that […]

Ted Cruz Whines Because Too Many Americans Support the Constitution (Video)


Whenever the subject of religion and our Constitution is brought up, it never ceases to amaze me how ridiculous many of these evangelical Christians can get. Even though our First Amendment clearly states that our government cannot base laws on religion, and our Constitution lacks even a single mention of Christianity, millions of Americans still believe […]

Bernie Sanders Rips Apart ‘Horrendous’ Senate Budget That Would Hurt Millions (Video)


Republicans are nothing if not predictable. They’ve essentially had the same economic philosophies since the 80′s, with a few slight tweaks here and there. Whenever they pass any sort of budget it always boils down to more spending on defense, tax cuts for the rich and huge cuts in social programs for the poor and needy. You […]

Sen. Rand Paul Just Sold His Soul and Cost Himself Any Chance at the GOP Nomination (Video)


Under no circumstances have I ever been a fan of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY). While I don’t loathe him like I do someone like Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), he’s slimy on a whole other level. Not only that, but he’s just an absolute fraud. While I never cared for Ron Paul, I could at least […]

Arizona Republicans Want Doctors to Tell Women That Some Abortions are Reversible


Words cannot express how sick and tired I am of having this debate over a woman’s right to have control over her own body. It’s absurd that we’re over 40 years removed from Roe v. Wade, where our Supreme Court ruled that every woman has the right to have an abortion, and we’re still having […]

Jon Stewart Shames Fox News for Celebrating That They Were Actually Right About Something (Video)


While Fox News champions itself as “fair and balanced” and a beacon for truth, most of us with common sense and the ability to think for ourselves are well aware that the network is nothing more than conservative entertainment. They are easily the most outrageous and over-the-top “news” (and I use that word loosely) channel […]
