Senate Blocks Bill Aimed At Protecting Members Of Our Military Who Are Sexually Assaulted

You would think protecting members of our military from being sexually assaulted, or ensuring that those who do carry out such a heinous act would face justice for their actions, would be one of those rare “no-brainer” issues that Congress could come together on to get something positive accomplished. Well, while everyone was distracted by […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Addresses the Joint Chiefs

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! It’s not every day a man of the cloth is invited to address the Joint Chiefs of Staff. So to begin, I want this august body to know that Cubic Zirconium Cathedral Ministries is always here to serve Uncle Sam, Adam Smith and Lady Liberty. I wouldn’t call that the American […]

Stephen Colbert Perfectly Mocks Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert’s Epic Stupidity (Video)

While there are many politicians currently serving in our government who have no business being in the position that they’re in, there are some who I have absolutely no idea how they managed to get elected. Those whose ignorance is so profound that it’s difficult to wrap your brain around the fact that people willingly […]

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Insults Members Of Our Military With Ridiculous Rant (Video)

In what sounds like a story straight from The Onion or The National Report, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stated that he opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell because apparently all gay soldiers want to do is lay around and get massages all day. I’ve listened to his comments, and even read a transcript of them, and I […]

Let’s Be Honest, Most Politicians Just Use the Military as Political Props to Make Themselves Look Good

I’m sure this article might ruffle a few feathers, and that’s okay.  I think sometimes the best discussions are developed from topics that are controversial.  And in light of these recent VA scandals, I’ve reached a point with the finger-pointing between both political parties that I simply can no longer stomach it. Because when it comes […]

Imagine Every Veteran and Current Member of Our Military Were Gay, Would Republicans Honor Them?

After I wrote an article covering the reprehensible behavior by six states that are deliberately making it harder for members of our military to register for benefits simply because they’re in a same-sex relationship, I thought to myself, “What if every veteran and current member of our military were gay?  Would Republicans still honor them?” […]

On Veterans Day, A Look at the Abysmal Voting Record Republicans Have in Support of our Military

There are millions of conservative Americans in this country who I fully believe have the utmost respect for the brave men and women who’ve served, or are currently serving, in our armed forces. That being said, the party which they support clearly does not. Sure, Republicans will talk at great lengths about the endless respect […]

Texas, 5 Other States Attempting to Prevent Members of Our Military from Receiving Benefits

It’s not all the time I run across a story related to politics that truly enrages me.  Sure, I’ll read plenty that frustrate me or even make me angry, but it’s rare that I get a feeling of such total disgust it lingers with me for quite a while afterward. Well, that’s exactly what happened […]

Beam Me Up: Obamacare in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

I love Dick. Don’t worry, this article is not a Rick Warren-inspired cry for help for gay conversion therapy.  The reference is to Philip K. Dick, quite possibly the greatest science fiction author of all-time. If you are not familiar with Dick, you probably have seen a movie or two inspired by his brilliantly warped […]

If It Were Men Being Raped, Then I Bet The Military Would Take Sexual Assaults Seriously

I’m so sick and tired of this double standard in our society.  Women being treated as second class citizens, even in 2013, with absolutely no legal basis for doing so. It’s equally as infuriating when panels of men are chosen to “rule on women’s rights.”  Why groups of men are determining issues on women’s health […]
