An Open Letter to Bill Clinton, from a Former Neighbor and Bernie Sanders Supporter

Dear President Clinton: We used to be neighbors, though I doubt you would remember me.  I used to live just down the street from you on F & 19th.  I often took evening strolls by your government housing quarters on Pennsylvania Avenue, and waved.  Every once in a while, a sniper atop the White House […]

Ronald Reagan’s Daughter: ‘My Father Would Be So Appalled’ At Today’s Republicans

Ronald Reagan is constantly invoked by Republican politicians, as well as conservative media talking heads. Inevitably, Rush Limbaugh or the current members of the GOP primary field will refer to themselves as “Reagan conservatives” – despite the fact that he would almost certainly be seen as a raving liberal lunatic under current conservative standards. For […]

Conservative Politics Is A Massive Scam

Conservative politics has become less about governing and presenting ideas, and has moved to becoming a long scam designed to take money from their base.

The Rise Of Bernie Sanders Shows Shifting Views on Socialism in America

While I’ll admit that comparing two presidents is extremely difficult (because let’s face it, times are always changing) there are a few ways people can go about determining if one president has been more successful (or even liked) than another. However, when it comes to former presidents (at least in the modern era) no one […]

We Cannot Stop Gun Violence With Prayers, Or More Guns

This past Thursday, in the movie theater my family and I usually go to see movies at, a man opened fire during a showing of the movie “Trainwreck.” Three people, including the shooter, were killed and four people remain in local hospitals. The community is still in shock, and it will be a long time […]

Oklahoma Republican Party Compares Food Stamp Recipients To Wild Animals

In many a truck stop or convenience store across the United States, you’ll find an assortment of bumper stickers for sale with slogans on them like “Don’t spread my wealth, spread my work ethic” or “Work hard, millions on welfare depend on you.” These are just a couple of examples of what is known as […]

GOP Candidates Get Asked Who The Best Living President Is, Proceed To Embarrass Themselves

If you follow politics at all you’re probably well aware that, for the most part, it’s just a dog and pony show. As voters, the simple fact is we are completely ridiculous. While both liberals and conservatives will complain about the dishonesty of government, or how we’re sick of politicians not representing the American people, we […]

Fox News Complains That Reagan-Era Program Has Been ‘Hijacked’ By Obama

President Obama recently blasted the folks over at Fox News for constantly stereotyping poor people as being lazy and wanting handouts. This portrayal has long been a talking point repeated over and over again by conservative media as well as the people who parrot the propaganda word for word. Even conservatives who receive financial assistance […]
