Alabama Favors Liquor Sales Over Voter Rights

If you’ve been following me for a while, you already know I like a nice bottle of whiskey. After a long day at work, I like to unwind with a glass of Jameson or Tullamore Dew with a couple of ice cubes while I write about the latest stupidity in our current political news. Unlike […]

These voter ID laws that have been passed all across the country by many Republican-controlled state legislatures have been an absolute joke.

TX Senator Pathetically Takes to Twitter to Mock Thousands of Americans Who Won’t Be Able to Vote

Voter ID laws, or as I like to call them the modern day poll tax, have sparked quite the debate these last few years. In fact, I was forced to pay a poll tax in Texas this year before I was allowed to vote. Since Republicans can’t just outright charge Americans for their right to vote, […]
