Ted Cruz Understands Science Less Than The Average Kindergarten Student

It’s not a shock that the Republican Party has a huge problem when it comes to climate change science. It’s not so much that they don’t believe in it, but that candidates like Ted Cruz rabidly deny climate change because it is what their campaign contributors and their base want to hear. According to a […]

Meteorologist Destroys GOP: Acknowledging Climate Change ‘Doesn’t Make You Liberal, it Makes You Literate’

I fully believe we’re eventually going to look back upon this time in our history with disdain and amazement that tens of millions of people doubted overwhelmingly accepted science on climate change. All because a political party that’s largely backed by big oil somehow managed to convince them that the majority of the world’s scientists […]

The Pope’s Visit Puts Into Perspective How Screwed Up the Republican Party Has Become

In case you haven’t heard, Pope Francis is making his big U.S. debut this week. It’s a visit I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. Not only am I a fairly big fan of this pope, but I’ve been extremely interested to see what sort of reaction he’s going to trigger from conservatives […]

Group Of House Republicans Admits Climate Change Is Real Ahead Of Pope’s Visit

Pope Francis is coming to Washington next week, and he’s sure to anger a lot of Republicans with his expected remarks on climate change. Granted, his views on income inequality and the Syrian refugee crisis are also controversial to conservatives – but the climate change thing has really got them angry. Now a small number […]

Pope Francis Tells Catholic Clergy: Take In Refugees, Or Pay Taxes Like Everyone Else

Pope Francis will be visiting the United States starting next Tuesday, and if his remarks to Catholic religious orders are any indication, his speech to Congress is sure to ruffle a few political feathers. Since Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope in 2013 and took the name Francis, he has angered many conservative Catholics and […]

Rick Santorum Perfectly Showcases Just How Ignorant Republicans Are About Science

While I wouldn’t call it an uncommon topic, I still don’t feel climate change is on the forefront of nearly as many discussions as it should be. Climate change is one of the most important issues we face, not only in this country, but across the entire planet. If our planet becomes uninhabitable, it doesn’t matter what […]

Rick Santorum Says Obama Gives Muslims & LGBT Refugees Preference In Order To Destroy America

Thanks to the ongoing Donald Trump love fest, the rest of the Republican field is desperate to get any possible attention from the conservative media. Because of the fact that there are so many candidates battling for a chance to get noticed, they’ve had to try to outdo Trump when it comes to crazy rhetoric, giving […]

Atheist Bill Maher Slams Catholic Rick Santorum: ‘I Like the Pope Better Than You Do!’ (Video)

While I make no secret of the fact that I am a Christian, I also don’t hide the fact that I’m not the biggest fan of organized religion. In organized religion I see nothing but humans taking faith and twisting it for their own desires. If you ask me, faith is meant to be a […]

Not One GOP Mayor Attends Climate Change Summit With Pope Francis

Pope Francis recently released an encyclical calling climate change “one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.” As expected, Republicans lashed out at Pope Francis, and presidential candidate Rick Santorum chided him by saying that Pope Francis should “leave science to the scientists.” There are few issues that Republican politicians from right-wing to moderate […]

Bernie Sanders Introduces Solar Energy Bill To Help Low Income Americans

One in five American schoolchildren live below the federal poverty level. In Mississippi, the state with the highest percentage, one in three children are from poor households. 46.5 million people currently live in poverty in the United States, with 20.4 million living on an income that is half the level that designates the poverty threshold.
