Bernie Sanders: “Too Big To Fail Banks Are Too Big To Exist”

Remember seven years ago when the big banks were begging us for a bailout which President Bush eventually signed off on, to the tune of $700 billion? Senator Bernie Sanders remembers, and after six big banks just admitted to manipulating lending and foreign exchange rates, he wants the largest of the financial institutions to be […]

Martin O’Malley, Not Hillary Clinton, May Be The Best Choice In 2016

Last week I was talking with a friend about the dysfunctional nature of national politics.  My friend, a conservative, admitted that President Obama has done a good job with the economy. After picking my jaw up off of the ground, we discussed how we are less than thrilled with the idea of another Clinton in […]

Is Germany Filing War Crimes Charges Against George Bush And Dick Cheney?

A story from December refuses to die, and once again it’s popping up in a few liberal Facebook groups I belong to. Headlines from Addictinginfo.org and Liberalamerica.org both claim that Germany is filing war crimes charges again former president George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and members of the CIA for their part in […]

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, […]

Dick Cheney And Other Bush Administration Officials May Finally Go To Trial

Did you know six members of the Bush Administration may finally end up in court? While I’d really rather see Bush painting his self portraits in solitary confinement or Rumsfeld riding the bulls at Angola, that’s not going to happen. Our friends over at Quiet Mike have been following this story for a while and […]

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 […]

Dear Dick Cheney: Nobody Gives a Damn What You Think About Iraq

Normally I try to keep things a little more professional, but when it comes to seeing Dick Cheney on my television giving advice about Iraq, I find myself losing all sense of professionalism and going into full, “Are you f-ing kidding me?” rant mode. There’s a rule I’ve said we should follow for quite some […]

You Have Got to be Kidding: Are Republicans Really Trying to Blame Obama for Iraq?

I love this Republican mindset that just because George W. Bush is no longer president, he’s not to blame for anything that’s currently going on in this country – or the world for that matter. Republicans were blaming President Obama for our economy almost immediately after taking office.  As if he could wave a magic […]

Top Bush Admin Official Says Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld All Guilty of War Crimes (Video)

I recently had a discussion with a conservative who, as expected, had no trouble bashing President Obama for what a “lousy job he’s done as president.”  Now I didn’t get into it too much with this individual because I stick to a rule about not engaging in political debates with people who clearly aren’t on […]
