Russian Propaganda Machine ‘Russia Today’ is Essentially Their Version of Fox News

It’s no secret that I (and most liberals) consider Fox News nothing more than a propaganda machine for the Republican party.  It’s laughable that they’re even allowed to call themselves “news.”  It’s not just that they’re clearly biased, it’s that they blatantly push opinions as facts and ignore reality to perpetuate myths. Shows like The O’Reilly […]

The Daily-Ish: Dubya Paints, Louie Gohmert and Allen West Keep the Crazy Train Going

After his presidency ended, Jimmy Carter founded the Carter Center. Even today, he travels extensively, working to advance important disease prevention and eradication efforts in developing nations, conduct peace negotiations, and observe elections. George H.W. Bush served as honorary chairman for an organization dedicated to solving social problems through volunteer service, and up until recently, was involved in several […]

It’s Time to Face Facts: When it Comes to Ukraine, There’s Not Much We Can Do

For the last several weeks, the situation in Ukraine has been all over the news.  And along with the continued news coming from Ukraine has been a seemingly endless stream of “experts” telling anyone who would listen to them what we should be doing. None have been more vocal than Republicans who have taken an […]

Godzilla & the Little Girl Who Prayed Her Papa Could Stop the Next Cold War

As my six-year-old daughter and I drove home from her school on Tuesday, I informed her that something important had happened to the world map.  A conversation ensued about the Crimean Crisis. We pulled to a red light and sat in silence for a bit.  My mind drifted… … Earlier in the day, I had […]

Dear NeoCons, Sanctions Don’t Lead to Liberation

John McCain and Fox News’s Todd Starnes will not be satisfied until they see starving Russian babies paying for Putin’s crimes. The brains and/or the penises of NeoCons must be hard-wired to need a constant influx of blood running the streets of foreign countries – preferably blood spilled by American bombs, but starvation will work as […]

Why the Hell Are People Asking Dick Cheney What We Should Do About Ukraine?

As the situation in Ukraine continues, there seems to be no shortage of “experts” offering their opinions on what we should, or shouldn’t be doing as it relates to Putin’s decision to send Russian troops into Crimea. And of course, no matter what President Obama does, Republicans are going to say it’s wrong or that […]

Evangelical Pastor John Hagee is a Fraud and his Theory About Ukraine is Utterly Ridiculous

Normally I don’t write articles about random pastors and the idiocy they spew.  If I did, I’d never stop writing.  But when it comes to Cornerstone Church founder and senior pastor John Hagee, I’ll make an exception. See, I’ve dealt with this man and his family before.  Years ago when I was a waiter in […]

Am I the Only One Who Notices the Republican Lovefest with Vladimir Putin?

You would think with Russia sending its military into Ukraine (and potential world catastrophe being talked about) it would be a moment where we could come together as a nation to say, “We’ve tried with this tyrant but he obviously has no desire to work with the rest of the world.  It’s time to get […]
