It Looks Inevitable, Donald Trump Will Eventually Be The Republican Nominee

When Donald Trump first announced that he was running for president, many political pundits, myself included, wrote his campaign off as a joke. While it may have been a publicity stunt to begin with, it is becoming more and more apparent that Trump intends to become the GOP nominee and face off against Bernie Sanders […]

Donald Trump Is Now Using Ted Cruz’s Canadian Birth Against Him

From the beginning of Donald Trump’s campaign, he and Ted Cruz have had what seems to be an unspoken agreement between the two not to attack each other. As a result, they’ve managed to isolate the rest of the field as candidates like Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson have soared in the polls, only to […]

Hillary Clinton’s False Statements On Bernie Sanders’ Healthcare Record Are Disgraceful

I have made it a point not to speak ill of any of the candidates in the Democratic presidential primary, and have even defended allegations against Hillary Clinton by conspiracy nuts that claimed she works for Monsanto – although it is no secret that I am an ardent supporter of Bernie Sanders. I accepted the […]

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, Desperate For Another War, Wants To Bomb Iran

Two Navy vessels experienced mechanical difficulties yesterday and drifted into Iranian waters in the Persian Gulf. The crews of the two vessels were briefly detained by the Iranian military before being released, along with both ships. Iran determined the act was not intentional, the United States apologized for accidental incursion, and what looked like a […]

Donald Trump And Ted Cruz Are Killing The Republican Party

Does anyone remember Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole, or both of the Bush presidents? It seems like not so long ago that the Republican Party represented conservative ideology, but they weren’t completely insane. In the years since the rise of the Tea Party and hyper-partisan media, the GOP has drifted so far to the right that […]

Thanks To Democrats, Medicaid Expansion Is Coming To Louisiana

For the past couple of years, many people here in Louisiana have fought to get Medicaid expansion for the hundreds of thousands of folks who desperately needed it. Bobby Jindal turned down the federal funding in hopes that it would score political points with the GOP base for his ultimately doomed presidential campaign. Political experts […]

The NRA Is Lying, Liberals Don’t Want To Take Your Guns

Living here in Louisiana, it isn’t hard to find a pickup truck with an NRA sticker on it. Guns are part of the culture here, and I’m OK with that for the most part. The Second Amendment was intended to ensure that men of military age were able to own weapons to defend a fledgling […]

Donald Trump Says He Wants To Run Against Bernie Sanders

Donald Trump has been pulling out all the stops in his campaign to win the Republican nomination for president. While he and other GOP candidates have done everything they can to secure the votes of the primary base, Bernie Sanders has been talking about real issues like police brutality and income inequality. Since the beginning, […]

Mike Huckabee Lashes Out At The Religious Right For Ignoring His Failing Campaign

Despite all of the media’s attention being on the latest insanity from Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, candidates like Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee are still in the race – even if their campaigns are on life support. It’s becoming increasingly obvious that establishment Republicans don’t have much of a chance outside of Marco Rubio, […]

Dear Liberals, Where Ted Cruz Was Born Doesn’t Matter

Ted Cruz and the GOP, along with the conservative media, have happily exploited the “controversy” over President Obama’s eligibility to be president. Even though he was born in Hawaii and has produced his birth certificate, right-wing conspiracy nuts continue to deny the fact that President Obama is a citizen. While many members of the GOP […]
