Some in the Media Wasted No Time Using the South Carolina Shooting to Further Divide Us

As I sit here, I’m overcome with a varying degree of emotion. First, just sadness over the tragedy that happened in South Carolina. There’s really no other way I can describe it but completely heartbreaking. For someone to be so consumed with hatred that they would be driven to commit such a horrific act of […]

This Is Why Hillary Clinton Needs Bernie Sanders To Run For President

If Hillary Clinton is the Democratic Party’s nominee in 2016, I will vote for her. With that in mind, I still want to see her face a couple of challengers in the primaries, and it’s not just because I’m uncomfortable with her simply being handed the nomination by default. Now, a lot of people are […]

Sen. Lindsey Graham Says He Would Use Military Force Against Congress As President

Conservative pundits and politicians love to portray President Obama as a lawless domestic tyrant who has shredded the Constitution.

The Media Shoulders Some Of The Blame For The Divide Among Police And Civilians

Police accountability and justice shouldn’t be a “left vs. right” issue, but sadly, that’s exactly what it’s turned into.

These 10 Companies Paid No Taxes Despite Earning Billions in Revenue

There’s always a lot of talk from conservatives about those “lazy welfare moochers abusing the system.”  Republicans like to pretend as if it’s these people who are responsible for all of our country’s problems.  That somehow the financial crash that led to trillions being added to our national debt was the fault of the poor […]

Hobby Lobby’s Case Isn’t About Religious Freedom, It’s About Destroying Obamacare

I really thought the Hobby Lobby thing had been covered from just about every angle, until a Mother Jones report was released today in which they uncovered the fact that Hobby Lobby’s retirement fund has over $73 million invested in pharmaceutical companies that produce contraceptives. Yes, you heard that right. The company that wants to […]

Has Reddit Gone Too Far? Moderators Banning Popular Political Blogs They Deem “Bad Journalism”

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not an expert on Reddit.  Aside from when one of our articles picks up some traffic from the website, or when someone pointed me in their direction, I’ve never really paid much attention to the site. Though I do work with people who are very familiar with Reddit […]
