White Supremacist David Duke on Donald Trump: He Speaks ‘A Lot More Radically’ Than I Do

This was the election cycle during which the GOP planned on showing us that they had moved beyond the Southern Strategy. They were happy about the campaigns of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, both of Hispanic origin. They also had a woman, Carly Fiorina, as well as Ben Carson, a celebrated neurologist who also happened […]

Did President Obama Declare December ‘National Muslim Appreciation Month’?

In the wake of the Paris and Beirut terrorist attacks, the conservative media has made an all-out attempt to somehow tie these acts to President Obama. In the years that he has been president, they have tried to paint him as being indifferent or even sympathetic to radical Islam. These claims are not based in […]

President Obama Mocks Republicans For Paranoia Over Syrian Refugees

Almost anywhere you go in this country, especially in rural areas, you’re bound to see cars and trucks with decals celebrating guns and slogans talking a big game about standing up to terrorism.

Here Is Why Republicans Love Ben Carson So Much

Conservatives want to believe that there isn’t a problem with race these days. As they see it, once segregation was ended over 60 years ago, all of the years of slavery and inequality were instantly erased.

5 Ways Barack Obama Has Been a Better and Far More Effective President Than Ronald Reagan

While I’ll admit that comparing two presidents is extremely difficult (because let’s face it, times are always changing) there are a few ways people can go about determining if one president has been more successful (or even liked) than another.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Blames Obama For Lack Of State Health Care Funding

Almost 5 years ago, I left Florida shortly before the 2010 election in which Rick Scott was elected governor. One of the promises he ran on, which he briefly┬áreversed┬áin 2013, was to block Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. Since then, Florida’s legislature, which is firmly in the control of conservative Republicans, has refused […]

Delusional Mitt Romney Seriously Thinks He Has A Chance In 2016

President Mitt Romney? Gee, didn’t he get the memo last time that the majority of voters didn’t want him to be in the Oval Office, or is this just the new fad for billionaires? The Republican 2016 clown car is already idling in the driveway and the potential riders are starting to line up for […]

Viva Cuba! Viva Democracy! Finally

In updating our long-standing policy of aggression with our next door neighbor Cuba, President Obama is doing something historic and significant. Cuba will now finally be open for US citizens to visit for any number of reasons, including religious, familial, and business purposes. However, I think we should question our assumptions in the fifty year […]

10 Reasons Why I’m Thankful Barack Obama is Our President

I’ve made it no secret that I simply don’t understand why so many people have such negative feelings toward President Obama. While I’ll be the first to admit that he hasn’t been perfect, considering the circumstances he inherited and has had to deal with since becoming president, I think he’s done a damn good job. […]

5 Reasons Why Barack Obama Will Go Down as One of the Least Appreciated Presidents in U.S. History

I remember back in 2008, the night Barack Obama was elected, thinking to myself that this was as good as it was going to get. While I was happy to see him elected, I knew then that the expectations about what he was going to be able to do as president were so overly inflated […]
