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 […]

Former GOP Congressman: ISIS is Right to Laugh at Americans Because We’re Weak, Lack Morals

I am by no means someone who gets easily offended. In fact, I frequently call out the overly “politically correct” nature of liberals. But an article that former Republican House Rep. Allen West posted on his official Facebook page and published on his website was one of the most offensive things I’ve read in quite a […]

The Right-Wing Propaganda Bubble Is A Very Profitable Lie

If you’ve ever gotten into an online “discussion” with a member of the right wing, you may have been subjected to what is sometimes called link spam. This happens when you, a well-rounded individual who gets your news from numerous sources, use facts to back up a statement. Whether it’s climate change, or debunking the […]

Fox News Contributor Allen West Busted by Fact-checking Site Blaming Obama for Policy Started by Bush

Blaming President Obama for something that Bush did is nothing new for Republicans. Hell, they’ve been doing it since before Obama even moved into the White House.

The Left’s Problem With Facts Concerns Me Greatly

From time to time, people will be puzzled when I write articles on science. Trust me, all I have to do is mention GMOs, Monsanto, conspiracy nuts or Food Babe, and I will suddenly be inundated with angry comments wherever my article is posted. Take for example a story I wrote a little while back exposing […]

The Hypocrisy Of The GOP Regarding The Military Reaches New Heights

We’re all familiar with the insanity of the modern GOP; the statements and attitudes that regularly grace our newspapers and media outlets are a seemingly endless flow of whatever piece of reality-starved drivel which has meandered its way out of a Republican mouth. We, of course, have the usual offenders: Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Ted […]

The Ice Bucket Challenge, in which people pour a bucket of ice […]

Allen West Questions Tammy Duckworth’s Patriotism

Allen West, while appearing on the May 21st broadcast of The Janet Mefferd Show, said this about Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois: I just don’t know where her loyalties lie. You know, for her to have been a veteran, a wounded warrior for the United States Army, she should know that this is not the […]

The Daily-Ish: Dubya Paints, Louie Gohmert and Allen West Keep the Crazy Train Going

After his presidency ended, Jimmy Carter founded the Carter Center. Even today, he travels extensively, working to advance important disease prevention and eradication efforts in developing nations, conduct peace negotiations, and observe elections. George H.W. Bush served as honorary chairman for an organization dedicated to solving social problems through volunteer service, and up until recently, was involved in several […]

Ted Cruz: A Scary Mixture of Michele Bachmann and Allen West

Once upon a time, Michele Bachmann and Allen West were new, shining stars of the GOP.  The tea party was gaining strength, and Representatives Bachmann and West were two of their up-and-coming leaders. My, how times have changed. Since then Michele Bachmann has announced her retirement (at the end of her current term) from Congress, […]
