Anti-Obamacare Former Sheriff Now Begging for Money to Help Pay Medical Bills


It’s no secret that most conservatives are not fans of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). In reality, millions of conservatives are actually big fans of the law considering they’re benefitting from it - they’ve just been pumped full of so much propaganda and blatant lies for the last several years that I’m convinced many of them […]

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Gives Absurd CPAC Speech Showcasing True Conservative Ignorance


Something I’ve always joked about is that my life would be much simpler if I was just a conservative. Instead of trying to understand science or deciphering complex problems to come up with rational solutions, I could just blindly applaud gibberish and nonsense as long as it was filled with plenty of conservative talking points […]

Exposing Libertarianism: The Belief That We Should Give More Power to Those Who Are Corrupting Government


Anyone who follows me knows I am not the biggest fan of libertarians. In fact, I loathe the whole ideology. I’m not saying that all libertarians are bad people (I know a few who are great people), I just happen to believe their ideology is ridiculous and doesn’t make any sense. These people believe in […]

Addressing the Stupidity Emanating From Those Who Oppose Net Neutrality


For about three days I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around the fact that there are millions of people who are speaking out against net neutrality. This issue has proven just how ridiculously partisan and divided we have become. Sadly, most of those I have encountered who oppose net neutrality have absolutely no idea what the […]

Republican Senator Brings Snowball to Senate Floor to Prove Climate Change is a Hoax – No, Seriously (Video)


I’ve often argued that climate change is a perfect example of just how simple-minded and shortsighted conservatives can be. One of the biggest issues I face when debating many of them is their complete inability to see the forest for the trees. Almost everything with them is based on simplistic talking points and instant gratification. If […]

42 Statements Made By Ted Cruz Were Fact-Checked – The Only One That Was True Was About Toilets


In case you haven’t heard, the annual CPAC conference is currently taking place. That means the Internet is sure to be inundated with some of the most ridiculous nonsense you’ve ever heard spewing from the mouths of those who are speaking at this event. Nothing brings out true idiocy quite like a bunch of Republicans […]

Jon Stewart Destroys Fox News, Exposes 50 Of Their Lies In 6 Seconds (Video)


Unless you’re a conservative or someone who doesn’t follow news or politics at all, most people are well aware of the fact that Fox News is nothing more than right-wing propaganda. There’s a reason why our politics has become more partisan and divisive than ever starting around the late-90′s when the conservative entertainment network was […]

Latest Senate Move Once And For All Exposes That House Republicans Are The Problem


Who’s to blame for the fact that we can’t get anything done in our government? Democrats have blamed Republicans, Republicans have blamed Democrats and essentially every conservative in this country has blamed President Obama. The thing is, anyone with even the slightest bit of common sense knows that the biggest problem in this country has […]

New Poll: Vast Majority of Republicans Don’t Believe President Obama is a Christian


Recently there’s been a fairly big deal made of Rudy Giuliani’s idiotic comments pertaining to President Obama and his belief that Obama doesn’t love America or Americans. Personally I’m not really sure what all the fuss has been about since the majority of Republicans have been trying to paint President Obama as “anti-American” or “not one […]

Jon Stewart Tackles Bill O’Reilly’s War Zone Lies, Tells Us Exactly What We’re Missing (Video)


The controversy surrounding Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly is actually a bit humorous to me. While I understand why some people care (Brian Williams just got suspended for lying in a similar way), to really act “outraged” because someone on Fox News might have been lying about something that happened 30 years ago isn’t exactly what […]
