Proof That Illegal Immigration Was Worse Under Ronald Reagan Than It Is Under President Obama


According to Fox News, and pretty much any conservative you run across, President Obama has refused to enforce our immigration laws which has led to a record number of illegal immigrants rushing to our borders. Of course that statement sounds troubling – and it would be – except the facts simply don’t support it. Currently, President […]

Hateful Protests Erupt After Texas Republican Calls for ‘Compassion’ for Immigrant Children


Texas Tea party Republican state Rep. David Simpson faced the wrath of some of his constituents on Wednesday because he dared to suggest that we might want to show a little “compassion” toward these immigrant children who continue to flee dangerous situations in Central and South America. Because nothing says “good Christian values” quite like harboring blind […]

Radical Gun Activists and the Westboro Baptist Church Have More in Common Than You Might Think


On the surface, radical gun activists (commonly referred to as gun nuts) and Westboro Baptist Church members might not seem to have a whole lot in common.  Gun activists are fairly clear with what they want (more guns - everywhere) whereas the Westboro Baptist Church focuses on an irrational hatred and fear of homosexuality (among other things). […]

Rick Perry Busted Blatantly Lying About Number of Homicides Committed by Illegal Immigrants


No one in this country has tried to exploit the immigration crisis at our border more than Texas Governor Rick Perry.  It seems a week doesn’t go by where he hasn’t traveled to the border for a new photo-op with a mounted machine gun near by. You know, because this picture of him and Sean […]

Dishonest Liberal Websites Wrongfully Accusing Ted Nugent of Calling Native Americans ‘Unclean Vermin’


I can’t believe I’m having to write an article defending the draft-dodging statutory rapist Ted Nugent, but I ran across this story and found the dishonesty by many who wrote about it to be inexcusable. So I guess this isn’t really a defense of Nugent as much as it is my condemnation of those who blatantly […]

People Making a Huge Deal out of Tony Dungy’s Comments on Michael Sam Need to Stop Acting Ridiculous


Before I get started, let me predict that at least half (if not more) of the people who come across this article and are “outraged” by Tony Dungy’s comments won’t read anything more than the headline. I’ve noticed a trend lately among many individuals that I find extremely troubling.  I call these people “rage seekers.” […]

Marco Rubio Whines That Conservatives Who are Intolerant Toward Others are Being Treated with Intolerance


When I state my belief that conservatives just don’t “get it,” I mean they really don’t get it.  And the worst part is, they only seem to be getting worse.  Once upon a time I spent most of my time debating Republicans on actual issues.  Now I spend more time trying to explain indisputable reality and […]

Ted Cruz Pathetically Uses Temporary FAA Ban on Flights to Israel to Attack President Obama


Senator Ted Cruz has become so ridiculous that it’s hard for me to view him as anything but a caricature of what tea party conservatives think politicians are supposed to act like.  Because I really just can’t take anything he says seriously. Take for instance his comments attacking President Obama because the FAA issued a […]

John Boehner Finally Confirms Bush is Responsible for Immigration Crisis, Admits Obama is Trying to Fix It


I’m sure you won’t hear about this on Fox News or any other right-wing media source, but House Speaker John Boehner actually admitted that George W. Bush was the president responsible for the current immigration crisis at our border. Not only that, but he basically admitted that Republicans are the reason why nothing is being […]

The 10 Republicans I Really Hope Run for President in 2016


Fresh on the heels of the news that Michele Bachmann is considering another presidential run, I felt inspired to list the ten Republicans I really hope do run in 2016. The 2012 GOP primary was so amazing that I can only imagine how great 2016 is going to be.  Because if you thought the crazy […]
