Republican Tax Cut Disaster: Kansas’ Economy Continues to Sink After Governor Promised Growth

It’s no secret that the Republican party’s economic ideology is based on tax cuts, commonly referred to as “trickle-down economics.” It’s generally the belief that the more the rich have, the better off the rest of us will be via more jobs, higher wages and a stimulated economy. Except, that’s not at all what’s happened. Over the […]

Judge Roy Moore Suggests Civil War Possible In Opposition To Marriage Equality

It goes without saying that after the recent ruling by the Supreme Court which legalized same-sex marriage, right-wing conservatives are extremely angry. Few of them have done more to blockade equal rights and try to insert religion into government than Alabama’s own Chief Justice Roy Moore, who has made an entire career out of defying […]

Kansas Republicans Just Admitted That Cutting Taxes to “Boost the Economy” is a Scam

It’s not exactly a secret that the entire Republican economic philosophy is built on tax cuts and deregulation. Practically every time House Speaker John Boehner talks about a “jobs plan” that Republicans are pushing, it’s just a bill that calls for tax cuts for the rich and deregulations that favor big business. Basically whenever you […]

Bobby Jindal Wants To Slash Funding For Education, Duck Dynasty Will Keep Tax Breaks

On an almost daily basis, I wonder why the hell I’m living in Louisiana. Scorching heat and humidity, roads that look like they’re from a third-world country, and a corrupt criminal justice system in which it’s often hard to tell the criminals from the police – that’s Louisiana. If you’ve ever tried to figure out […]

Kansas Republican Kris Kobach: ‘Not A Huge Jump’ To Think Obama Will Exempt Blacks From Prosecution

On his radio show last week, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach told a caller that it was “not a huge jump” to think that President Obama would stop the judicial system from prosecuting African-Americans, regardless of the severity of their crimes. While it is important to remember that he didn’t actually say that he […]

Kansas GOP Senator Mary Pilcher-Cook Wants To Criminalize “Harmful” Books

A Republican senator in Kansas, Mary Pilcher-Cook, has introduced a bill to the state house to amend the current public morals standard.

Jon Stewart Destroys Alabama’s Biblical Hypocrisy: ‘You Have F**ked Yourselves With Your Own Statute!’ (Video)

I was talking with a buddy of mine yesterday about gay marriage and how I cannot wait for the conservative freakout when the Supreme Court rules that bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional, thus legalizing same-sex marriage on a national scale. It’s going to be epic and hilarious – and a long time coming. Though […]

Kansas Governor Just Legalized Discrimination Against Members of the LGBT Community

I’m not going to lie, when it comes to the debate over equal rights for members of the LGBT community in this country I’m utterly and completely exhausted. Not because I’m tired of fighting for these rights, but because I’m so sick and tired of the ridiculous arguments made by those who oppose giving members […]

Republican Economic Failure and Idiocy are on Full Display in Kansas

Who would have ever thought Kansas would end up being the state that would absolutely shred Republican economic foolishness? Granted it’s a fairly conservative state, but it’s Kansas. Not that there’s anything wrong with the state, but it’s just not a place where a whole lot often goes on. However, since Governor Sam Brownback decided he […]

Kansas Minister Has Received Death Threats, Had Church Vandalized for Performing Gay Marriages (Video)

Just last month, Kansas became one of an increasing number of states to allow same-sex marriage. Like in many other states trying to keep homosexuals from enjoying their constitutional right to marry whomever they love, a judge ruled that Kansas could no longer prevent gay couples from getting married. But with great change often comes […]
