The Media is Desperate to Make Ferguson About President Obama


The situation that’s going on in Ferguson is clearly controversial.  Right now there are more opinions than facts and the whole situation has just gotten completely out of hand. But there’s one thing I’ve noticed – the media really wants to drag President Obama into this. I’ve seen a few instances on Fox News where pundits have […]

Republican Senator: Fox News ‘Totally Not Fair and Totally Not Balanced’

Most liberals are well aware that when it comes to reporting the news, Fox News is an absolute joke. Their slogan is “fair and balanced,” but it’s obvious to anyone who’s even the slightest bit objective that they’re neither. Which is fine. If they want to be a shill for the GOP, go right ahead. […]

Cop Busted Driving Drunk Asks To Be Let Go As A ‘Professional Courtesy’


The situation currently going on in Ferguson, Missouri has put the behavior of many of our nation’s law enforcement officials in the headlines for the last several days. But no matter what your opinion is concerning the events that continue to go on in Ferguson, I believe most people can agree that unethical and immoral […]

Protests, Tear Gas, Riots and Looting: It’s Been Absolute Chaos in Ferguson

I’m going to once again attempt to write about Ferguson, Missouri.  Though I’ll be honest with you, I’m not at all sure where this piece might end up once I’m finished with it.  Because out of all the topics I’ve covered in my time writing, this one has honestly exhausted me. What can anyone really […]

A Simple Explanation Showing How Facebook is Destroying Credible Journalism and News


Facebook is an easy target to bash – and rightfully so on a lot of levels.  They claim they’re all about the user experience, yet it seems with every one of their updates users become less and less satisfied with their service.  But much like Walmart, as much as people complain about it, they still […]

Fox News Panel Outrageously Tries to Exploit Chaos in Ferguson to Stir Up Fear About Obama (Video)


Leave it to Fox News to find any reason to stir up the “President Obama is out of control with power” line that they’ve been pushing since before he stepped foot in the White House. And being that the big story this past week has been the events going on in Ferguson, that seems to be […]

Fox News is the Fear-Mongering Propaganda Machine That’s Dividing This Nation


It never ceases to amaze me how so many conservatives still believe in the laughable Fox News motto of “fair and balanced.”  I think that’s honestly one of the things that bothers me so much about Fox News.  It’s not just their trash journalism, or blatant misinformation, it’s that they honestly try to portray themselves […]

Walmart Strikes Again With A New Attempt To Further Destroy Small Businesses


Walmart is a bit of an enigma, isn’t it?  I rarely meet anyone who enjoys shopping there, and the company itself has an atrocious PR imagine, yet it still manages to be an absolute corporate powerhouse. But when it comes to Walmart, most of us picture their massive 24-hour “supercenters” that sell everything from groceries […]

Police Watch Dog Group Busted Trying to Slander Officer with Blatantly Edited Video


A recent video has gone viral pushed by a supposed watch dog group calling themselves Florida Cop Watch.  Their Facebook page champions them as a group out for “peace, justice and accountability.” In this 31 second video it allegedly shows a man being unlawfully arrested and tasered by two Florida police officers. And I’ll admit, if […]

Paul Ryan Gives Absolutely Laughable Reason for Not Watching Political Drama ‘House of Cards’


I’m sure most people by now have heard of the popular Netflix show House of Cards.  I’ll be honest, I got addicted to it this past February.  I burned through both seasons in about a week.  That’s kind of the downside to Netflix, it’s far too easy to “binge watch” some of your favorite shows. The […]
