The Simple Truth is Most Republicans Believe in a ‘Reality’ That Doesn’t Actually Exist

Once upon a time, my political debates with my conservative counterparts focused more on ideological differences on issues like abortion, tax policy, the death penalty, or issues related to the use of our military. These were normal political debates between people who simply disagreed on some key philosophical differences on several issues. Those days are long […]

John Boehner Admits Republicans are Frauds on Obamacare

For those of us who don’t call ourselves Republicans, having a member of the GOP admit to something we already knew is something we never tire of seeing. The most recent example of this happened Thursday when former Speaker of the House John Boehner essentially admitted that Republicans have been lying for years about “repealing Obamacare.” As […]

5 Republicans Who Are Just as Much of a National Disgrace as Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s awfulness has been well-documented, but he’s far from the only Republican who Americans should publicly condemn for being terrible human beings. Sure, Trump’s the one “in charge,” but there are many members of his own party who know he’s dangerous, incompetent, and unfit for office — yet they defend and support him anyway. If you […]

One of Donald Trump’s Executive Orders is Already Hurting Military Families

One of the main concerns I had with Donald Trump getting elected was my fear that his incompetence is dangerous enough to hurt Americans, or even take us closer to war, without him even realizing it. There are plenty of awful things he’s deliberately said or done, but the “unintended consequences” of his ignorance are, […]

Once Again, Trump’s Tweet Proves He’s an Incompetent, Conspiracy-Driven Idiot

To be honest, I used to dread checking Twitter to see the latest idiotic drivel Donald Trump had sent out. However, now that he’s becoming more and more of a joke each and every day, I’ve actually found myself looking forward to his frequent Twitter temper tantrums. While I still despise the fact that he’s in […]

Liberals Aren’t the Ones Treating Trump’s Supporters Like Morons – He Is

Every day I receive messages from supporters of Donald Trump criticizing me for something I’ve written where I’ve either pointed out how terrible he is or how ignorant they are to defend and support him. I can’t help but laugh at how hostile many of these folks are toward people like myself for believing that someone has […]

There’s One Thing That Proves Trump’s Comments on Anti-Semitism Were Pure B.S.

Donald Trump’s behavior is often described as “unpredictable,” but I wholeheartedly disagree with that assessment. Sure, it’s often erratic and unhinged, but he’s someone who’s fairly easy to predict. That’s why, in my opinion, his comment “condemning” a massive spike in anti-Semitism since his inauguration was as fake as his spray-on tan. First, this is […]

10 Reasons Why, No Matter How Awful Trump Gets, His Supporters Don’t Care

To be honest, I’m guilty of over-generalizing Donald Trump supporters as “stupid.” When I use the word “stupid,” I’m not actually referring to their intelligence as people (at least not always), but more “stupid” in a sense of being dangerously naive or woefully ignorant. In my opinion, to be a fairly intelligent Trump supporter takes deliberate ignorance. But […]

Many Liberals are Dealing with Milo Yiannopoulos All Wrong

Until his interview with Bill Maher, I hadn’t really sat down to watch Milo Yiannopoulos say much of anything outside of bits and pieces of interviews he’s done or articles I read concerning something he’s said. And even from that small sample size I was never impressed with anything I saw. Don’t get me wrong, I […]

My Response to One of the Dumbest Things I’ve Ever Heard Bill O’Reilly Say (Video)

Maybe I’m making too big of a deal out of this comment, but something about it rubbed me the wrong way. It happened Monday evening on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor when host Bill O’Reilly, as he’s known to do, went on tirade against liberals and the media, claiming that he believes it’s a “10 to 1” […]
