Dr. Ben Carson And Dr. Oz Are More Alike Than You Think

As Dr. Ben Carson has risen in the Republican polls, he’s made a series of increasingly bizarre statements. In Pennsylvania, he’s tied with billionaire Donald Trump and trails him by five points in Iowa. Carly Fiorina has also cut into Trump’s lead, based on strong appearances in her first two debates. The popularity of the […]

GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert’s Weird Fantasy About An Island Of Gay People Has Me Puzzled

Texas congressman Louie Gohmert is one of the greatest – and most under-appreciated – accidental contributors to political comedy. While The Daily Show and others focus on the countless ridiculous comments made by Republican presidential candidates and other high-ranking conservatives, Louie Gohmert tends to slip under the radar with some of the weird things he […]

California Senate Passes Bill Ending “Personal Beliefs” Vaccines Loophole

Vaccines do not cause autism. Repeat after me, vaccines DO NOT cause autism. We’ve been over this time and time again, but there are still people out there who take the advice of D-list celebrities and a discredited British doctor over the overwhelming consensus of the medical and scientific communities. Yet, there are still states here […]

It’s The 21st Century, Why Are We Still Arguing About Vaccines?

Vaccines save lives. Smallpox, polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, yellow fever, tetanus, and measles have all been brought under “some degree of control” by vaccines. Vaccines are especially helpful in poverty-stricken countries, where infant mortality is extremely high. Vaccines allow families in poor countries the freedom to only have as many children as they want, not […]

There’s No Vaccine For Obama Defiance Disorder

A few years ago, there was a joke going around about yellow snow. If President Obama came out against eating yellow snow, members of the right-wing would issue statements, arguing for it. How dare Obama try to control what we eat, why does he hate winter, is Obama prejudiced against dogs, etc. We’ve seen it […]

In One Tweet, Hillary Clinton Brilliantly Hammers Anti-Vaccine Advocates

The debate over vaccines has never been more mainstream than it is right now. If you ask me, this is a debate we should have been having years ago. It’s a shame that it took a measles outbreak to finally get the ridiculous anti-vaccine movement exposed on a national scale. For far too long, this […]

Jon Stewart Slams Republicans And Liberals: ‘Vaccine Ignorance’ Has Created ‘Strange Hospital Bedfellows’ (Video)

Words cannot express how glad I am that the ridiculous “anti-vaxxers” are finally being properly slammed in the media. For far too long this “movement” has been building without much resistance from the mainstream media, which isn’t surprising considering our “news” nowadays is more about what makes ratings instead of what people probably need to […]

Rand Paul: Vaccines Are The First Step Toward Martial Law

Rand Paul makes sense on some issues. In fact, he makes so much sense on issues like drug legalization and civil liberties that a lot of people on the left (myself included) find themselves thinking, “Hey, this guy isn’t so bad!” and almost completely forget about the fact he’s a Republican – or that he […]

Fox News’ ‘Outnumbered’ Spirals into Pure Nonsense as Hosts Try to Discuss Vaccines (Video)

It’s always interesting when an issue is brought up among conservatives that mixes two conflicting ideological issues. As we all know, conservatives are vehemently anti-government. If the government “mandates” anything, the conspiracy wackos typically spiral into some irrational fear-mongering diatribe that usually ends with some sort of Nazi reference or implication that there’s some other […]

Why Are Liberals Denying Science When It Comes To GMOs?

One of the most infuriating things about dealing with some people on the left is their rejection or mistrust of science. Sure, we like to point and laugh when politicians like Bobby Jindal call the Obama administration “science deniers” – especially when Jindal has a degree in science and we know he’s just catering to […]
