Once Again Trump Contradicts Himself, Tries to Take Credit for Obama’s Idea

On Monday evening, Donald Trump made his “big speech” where he was supposed to discuss Afghanistan and the role the United States would have in the country going forward. In case you missed it, let me summarize the gist of Trump’s “plan”: it’s essentially the exact same thing Barack Obama did. In December 2009, Obama […]

Humanity, Not Quite Ready for Civilization: Reverence for Life in a Washed-Up World

The fifth and final part in a series that explores whether humanity is ready for Civilization. Click these links to read Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV. Sometimes you have to break a thing down into its simplest parts to understand it afresh. At other times, you have to be broken, or […]

GOP Rep. John Duncan Calls Out Fellow Republicans For Supporting ‘Endless War’

It isn’t often that you’ll find me agreeing with Republicans on anything, but I believe in giving credit where and when it is due. Today I read an op-ed from Rep. John J. Duncan Jr. of Tennessee’s 2nd District over at The American Conservative and I have to admit, I was quite impressed. Granted, it’s one […]

President Obama Isn’t Responsible For ISIS Or Leaving Iraq

It was announced yesterday that President Obama had authorized the use of air strikes against ISIS in Iraq. As usual, I made the mistake of reading the comments on our local news station, KATC. The remarks ranged from blaming President Obama for withdrawing from Iraq too soon, to the usual questioning of his birth certificate, […]

Louie Gohmert: American Deaths in Afghanistan Prove Obama Doesn’t Want to Protect Our Troops

Texas Representative Louie Gohmert has made a name for himself as someone who isn’t afraid to spew nonsense so obscure and non-traditional that it’s hard for most Americans to mentally grasp what he’s actually saying. In other words, he’s said a lot of really stupid things. His most recent verbal dumping of stupidity came as […]

Did George W. Bush End Up Giving Osama bin Ladin Almost Exactly What He Wanted?

I’m sure this might ruffle a few feathers, but I’m sitting here in 2014 and I just can’t shake this feeling that what we’re seeing right now might have been what Osama bin Ladin was hoping for all along. Going back to September 11, 2001, the horrors we all felt that day seemed insurmountable.  But as […]

Will Republicans Finally Admit George W. Bush was One of the Worst Presidents in History?

While liberals have constantly said that George W. Bush was one of the worst presidents in United States history (if not the worst), Republicans have often dismissed those claims. They couldn’t really use the economy to defend him since we saw one of the worst crashes in United States history as his second term was […]

Ted Cruz Says He Would Have Used Military Force to Rescue Afghanistan POW Bergdahl (Video)

I’m going to go on record and say that I believe there was absolutely no “right way” to secure the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held by Afghanistan rebels for five years.  No matter which way it happened, it would be both right and wrong. Period. Did President Obama “negotiate with terrorists”? […]

Afghanistan War Veteran Suffering from Seizure Saved by Dog That Dialed 9-1-1 (Video)

I say it pretty often that in a business such as mine where it seems that everything is negativity, cynicism or some kind of battle, it’s nice to write a story that diverges somewhat from “the norm.”  Though I’m sure there will be plenty of people who have something to say about why this soldier […]

Why I Refuse To “Support Our Troops”

I remember 9/11 like it was yesterday. Like many other people who are old enough to remember that day, I can tell you where I was and what I was doing on that crisp September morning when the world as we knew it changed forever. At the time I worked at a gym, and within […]
