Republican Senator’s Dreadful Comments After Vegas Massacre Show How Useless GOP Has Become

As I’ve said numerous times over the past year or so, the more Republicans are forced to defend the indefensible, the more outlandish their answers are going to become.

I Have a Message for Those Saying Now Isn’t the Time to Talk About Gun Violence

After the atrocious massacre that happened in Las Vegas, the last thing I want to hear anyone say is, “This isn’t the time to have a debate on guns.” Words cannot express how sick and tired I am of hearing that line. It’s what they said after mass shootings at: Columbine: 13 killed Aurora: 12 […]

I Don’t Want to Buy an Orange Shirt–But I Know I Must

Ridiculous Fox News Analyst Asks if the San Bernardino Massacre was a ‘Literal War on Christmas’ (Video)

It’s not exactly “breaking news” to say that our media has become really bad or flat-out awful at times.

Even though for much of the day no one […]
