TX Gov. Greg Abbott Caves to Conspiracy Groups by Vetoing Bipartisan Mental Health Bill

When current Republican presidential candidate and former Texas governor Rick Perry announced he wouldn’t run for re-election in 2014, many Democrats in the state (and around the country for that matter) rejoiced in the news. I was not one of those people. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of Rick Perry – not […]

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Thinks Obama’s Invading One Day, Begs Him For Help The Next

It’s not really a big secret that Republicans are absolute hypocrites when it comes to many things. They’re the “small government, fiscally conservative Americans” who haven’t had a president from their party balance the budget in over 50 years (no, not even the “conservative icon” Ronald Reagan) and Republicans are huge fans of expanding government […]

Texas Republican Calls Out Gov. Greg Abbott: Stop ‘Pandering to Idiots’

In case you haven’t heard, Texas Governor Greg Abbott officially brought crazy to the highest office in his state when he ordered the Texas Guard to monitor the activity of the U.S. military. Why did he do this, you ask? Well, because conservatives have become so paranoid the last few years that there were quite […]

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Orders State Guard to Monitor the Activity of U.S. Military

I don’t even know where to begin with this as it’s one of the most insane stories that I’ve ever come across. While right-wing rhetoric is often fairly “out there” and anti-government, typically the craziest stuff is left to fringe conspiracy theorists who believe in nonsense like chemtrails, “false flags” and the general belief that […]

Jon Stewart Slams Republican Stupidity in Texas, Asks ‘What Would Jesus Shoot?’ (Video)

Being a liberal in Texas isn’t easy. I’m constantly surrounded by people who literally seem to make up reality as they go along. Many of these people see facts as opinions and believe the Bible is more credible than science books. Needless to say, I get frustrated from time to time. Well, on last night’s episode […]

Greg Abbott Refused to Answer Whether or Not He Would Have Supported Ending Bans on Interracial Marriage

There are many questions we can be asked that don’t have a simple “yes” or “no” answer to them. But then there are those questions that shouldn’t be difficult to answer, such as whether or not interracial marriage should be legal. The answer, unless you’re a racist or a bigot, should clearly be “yes.” Well, not […]

Disabled Wendy Davis Supporter Blasts Greg Abbott Campaign For Calling Disabled Speakers “Props”

Greg Abbott’s gubernatorial campaign recently reacted with outrage to an ad from Wendy Davis’s campaign that explained how he was a hypocrite when it came to disabilities. Conservative websites and even some liberal ones like Mother Jones blasted Wendy Davis for the ad, claiming that Greg Abbott’s disability was off-limits for political discussion. This is […]

Greg Abbott Writes Completely Ridiculous Argument Against Marriage Equality

Sometimes I think conservative Republicans, especially those from Texas, couldn’t do anything else that would surprise me. After all, this is the state that gave us George W. Bush, Rick Perry, Ted Cruz, Louie Gohmert, and Steve Stockman. Remember Stockman and Gohmert, the two members of the House that make Michele Bachmann look like a […]

NRA Hero Ted Nugent Says Poor People Need to Stop Whining, Being Stupid

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from the self-admitted pedophile Ted Nugent, but we had to know it was only a matter of time before this disgusting human being made news again.
