Time to Discuss an Unfortunate Trait That Both Progressives and Conservatives Share

Without a doubt, politics is an emotionally-driven subject that can often make otherwise normal people completely irrational and impossible to reason with. It’s a topic that’s filled with millions of people who: Attack anyone who tells them what they don’t want to hear. Buy into conspiracies when the truth/facts don’t support what they think should […]

Here’s the Sad Reality About the War of Words Between Trump and Kim Jong-Un

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is an absolutely horrific human being. He’s a brutal, authoritarian dictator who routinely murders people, even members of his own family, while presiding over an impoverished country filled with millions of people who are starving, brainwashed, live in constant fear, and completely isolated from the outside world. That said, I […]

Here’s Why Trump’s NFL Rant Was His Most Blatant Display of Racism Yet

Following Donald Trump’s hateful NFL rant, I hope, at least for this week, we see a huge wave of NFL players kneeling or sitting during the National Anthem. Trump’s rant in Alabama on Friday night perfectly exemplified what a vile, racist cretin he is. While trying to play to his crowd (in one of the most […]

I spent some time contemplating if I was going to write this article. While I saw the value in the message, I also felt like I might be exploiting a bad time in a friend’s life just to tell this story. Ultimately, I chose to go ahead and write this because I felt this event […]

5 Sad Reasons Why It’s Pointless to Try to Reason with Trump Supporters

Before getting started, let me begin by saying that while I know debating any supporter of Donald Trump is absolutely maddening, and usually completely pointless, I still think people should do it.

Dear Media: Here’s the Question That Really Needs to be Asked When Covering Trump

Words cannot express how sick and tired I am of the mainstream media acting as if we should believe anything Donald Trump says. Not only is he possibly the most dishonest human being ever elected to public office, but he’s proven time and time again that he just says… stuff, which often doesn’t make any sense. He’ll […]

Here’s One of the Best Examples of Trump Supporter Ignorance You Might Ever See

Anyone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook is probably aware that every once in a while I’ll have a debate with a supporter of Donald Trump that stands out in such a way that I’m compelled to turn it into an article. I do this mainly for three reasons: Feeling that a tactic I’ve […]

Dear Republicans: Whether You Like It or Not, You’re All Huge Fans of Socialism

I find it slightly comical that Republicans (and even some Democrats) scoff at the idea of socialism in any form, especially considering this country has been partially driven by socialism for decades. In fact, most Americans absolutely love socialism. If you doubt me, go ask any state that’s been decimated by some sort of natural/man-made disaster how […]

Here are 5 Republicans Who are Just as Terrible, If Not Worse, Than Donald Trump

While Donald Trump makes most of the headlines nowadays, I’ve spent the last few months reminding folks to remember that, even though he’s absolutely terrible, there are plenty of other Republicans who are just as bad, and maybe even worse. One of my biggest concerns with the rise of Trump was that his special blend of […]

Donald Trump Could Be on the Verge of Making One of His Biggest Mistakes

When it was announced that seemingly no-nonsense former General John Kelly was going to become Donald Trump’s White House chief of staff, the first thought that went through my head was, “This isn’t going to end well.” I’m not sure why some struggle with understanding that, as much as Trump talks about wanting “the best […]
