Edward Snowden Says He’s ‘Very Fortunate’ to be in Russia, Makes Ridiculous Claim About Guantanamo

I try to avoid talking about Edward Snowden because discussing him with many people, especially his supporters, is like debating guns with gun nuts. People who support Edward Snowden don’t care what he says or does.  They don’t care that he leaked a lot of classified information that had nothing to do with the Constitutional rights […]

Let Me Show You Why Edward Snowden is a Traitor and Not a Patriot

Recently I wrote an article mocking Edward Snowden for claiming that the only reason he’s stuck in Russia is because the United States pulled his passport.  I mocked that because Snowden would have to have been a complete buffoon to not know that after he publicly came out as the person who leaked these NSA documents, the […]

Edward Snowden Finally Proves Once and For All What a Narcissistic Traitor He Really Is

Even if some of the information Edward Snowden has leaked was important for the American people to know, in my opinion he’s still a traitor to his country. He illegally stole a ton of information, fled the country, then released that intelligence information to the world. And don’t give me this whole “he’s a patriot standing up for the […]

Rand Paul Pathetically Tries to Take Credit for Planned Changes to NSA Policies

I remember when I was in school, a professor told me that to be a high profile politician means you have to essentially be an egomaniac.  Basically they have to believe that everything they do is great, most people are inferior to them, and if something they say or do turns out to be wrong […]

Stephen Colbert Slams Both the NSA and Edward Snowden

In my opinion, Stephen Colbert is a bit of an enigma.  Similar to people like Zach Galifianakis or Will Ferrell, he seems to live much of his life in a state of perpetual satire and character.  Even when outside of the confines of his show, it’s rare that you see him act in any form of […]

Supreme Court Decision Shreds Fourth Amendment, Allows Police to Enter Homes Without Warrant

It’s rare that you’ll see me write something “alarming” about a Supreme Court ruling that has an impact on our Constitutional rights.  But when I read about their latest ruling which now gives police permission to enter a home without a search warrant, it did set off a few of my red flags. In a 6-3 […]

Free Form Planet Earth, 2.0: Reboot in 3… 2…1…

Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria, Uganda. Hey, Dorothy, you’re not in the Kansas House of Reps anymore. Putin on the Ritz.  Michael Sam’s media blitz.  Yanukovych on the fritz.  Duke Energy, in the ditch. The world is on fire, folks.  Tongues o’ flame.  And as per usual, Pussy Riot gets the blame. Hate vs. Love. Heterogeneity vs. […]

No, Obama’s Remarks on Changes to NSA Surveillance Programs Don’t Vindicate Edward Snowden’s Actions

President Obama recently held a press conference where he announced several modest changes to how the NSA can collect data and how they handle their surveillance programs.  Changes that apparently neither NSA opponents nor NSA defenders are happy with. Well, the cheers of “Edward Snowden the patriot” have suddenly become louder as his defenders see […]

Republican Peter King Has Some Very Harsh Words for Fellow Conservative Rand Paul

Being that I’m not a conservative, I think it goes without saying that I simply don’t understand the inner workings of the Republican mind.  Heading into an election year, I fully plan to see a seemingly endless stream of right-wing ridiculousness making the headlines as Republicans battle other (more extreme) Republicans. Heck, we’ve actually already […]

Rand Paul Planning Ridiculous Stunt, Wants to Sue Obama Administration

I’ve joked (kind of) that the motto of the Republican party really needs to be something like, “Blaming President Obama/Democrats for something we caused since January 20, 2009.”  I mean, let’s face it, these are the same people who actually try to convince millions of Americans (and have been extremely successful at doing so) that […]
