We need better debates!

It seems like it is a hobby with Republicans: the incessant whining about how the media treats them unfairly.  Of course, when liberal bias is defined as a journalist not parroting Republican talking points, of course, there's going to be bias.  Lately, the whining has been about how the debate moderators have been asking "gotcha"...

Was Ben Carson caught fibbing?

I guess I should be glad that I made my bull snot meter graphic.  I have a feeling that I am going to use it many times in the course of the next year. Anyways, during the debate on Wednesday, Ben Carson was asked a question about his involvement with a controversial product.  His response... Continue Reading →

Bad optics for the NFL

Is it me or has the NFL become fine obsessed? DeAngelo Williams was fined for having "find the cure" on his eye black. William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats. Cam Heyward was fined for having "Iron Head" on his eye black. Gay's fine is somewhat understandable.  Based on the actions of some of... Continue Reading →

Has Hillary flip flopped again?

In a recent interview, Hillary Clinton has said that she would allow banks to fail in a situation similar to what we had in 2008. When Colbert turned his questioning to Wall Street reform, he asked directly if Clinton were president, "and the banks are failing, do we let them fail?" "Yes. Yes, yes, yes,... Continue Reading →

Good apples in blue

Well, I am going to do something politically incorrect.  I'm going to point out a case where police officers were caught performing an act of kindness. Recognizing the family was down on their luck, Gower and Hawkins decided to buy the girls — ages 1, 3 and 4 — car seats instead of ticketing the... Continue Reading →

Another bad apple in blue?

So, we have yet another case of where a police officer is being accused of being heavy handed. A South Carolina police officer in Richland County slammed a girl to the ground and dragged her out of a high school classroom, sparking outrage Monday night when videos filmed by students surfaced on social media. Though... Continue Reading →

Was the purpose of Benghazi to bring Clinton down?

If it was, it appears to be failing. Buoyed by what most analysts proclaimed a victory in the first Democratic Presidential nomination wannabes debate, an 11-hour Benghazi hearing that even conservatives now believe was a Halloween-monster-sized mistake for Congressional Republicans, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign is going into full gear as the (largely)...

Is the tea party dying?

According to a recent poll by Gallup, it seems that the tea party is starting to fade. Americans' support for the Tea Party has dropped to its lowest level since the movement emerged on the national political scene prior to the 2010 midterm elections. Seventeen percent of Americans now consider themselves Tea Party supporters, and... Continue Reading →

And the winner is Hillary

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton went before the Benghazi inquisition to answer some questions. Thanks to Kevin McCarthy, many suspicions about the committee were confirmed. This gave Hillary the upper hand going into hearing. Since we are creatures that need to declare victors in any conflict, the question has been raised on who won. A trip... Continue Reading →

Pharma bro gets competition

A recent controversy involving a medication for toxoplasmosis is coming to an end.  The company owned by Martin Shekreli (aka Pharma Bro) is being undercut by a competitor. A drug company plans on introducing the first competitor to Daraprim, the parasitic-fighting drug that’s met national controversy for its skyrocketing price tag. The company, Imprimis Pharmaceuticals,... Continue Reading →

Celebrate diversity… but not if you’re white

When I was in school during the 90's, multiculturalism was the big thing.  We were supposed to accept and celebrate diversity.  Oh, how things have changed. Self-appointed guardians of culture have proclaimed that Miley Cyrus shouldn’t twerk, white girls shouldn’t wear cornrows, and Selena Gomez should take off that bindi. Personally, I could happily live... Continue Reading →

And another has been claimed…

Given the number of candidates that running for the nomination of their party for president, it is only natural that some are going to have to drop out of the race.  Lincoln Chafee joins the ranks of Jim Webb and Rick "good hair" Perry.  This does not come as any surprise as the media clearly...

Was Hillary mansplained?

In case anybody missed the obvious, Clinton appeared before the Benghazi inquisition to answer questions.  One of the accusations that was leveled by liberals at the Republicans conducting the hearing was that she was mansplained. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton faced hours of questioning from the House Select Committee on Benghazi Thursday. As the... Continue Reading →

I guess that they think we forgot

One of the problems with the American electorate is that it has a short memory. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who bitterly opposed Democrats' use of the so-called nuclear option in the last Congress to break filibusters of presidential nominations, tapped several members of his caucus to look into whether new changes need to...

Want a glimpse of what tyranny is like?

There is something smelly in Wisconsin and I am not talking about cheese. Republicans in Wisconsin set their sights on reforming the John Doe process after it was used against Walker and his staff — six of whom were convicted for embezzlement and other charges. A second John Doe investigation targeting Walker himself — for... Continue Reading →

Harry Reid endorses Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House

I’ve been curious as to what the reblog feature does. This post brings up a good question. Is Reid and Paul in cahoots or is Reid trying to undermine Paul?

America's Watchtower

 Paul Ryan has earned a notch in his belt, if you can call it that, in his bid (don’t let him sell you on his “reluctance” to take the job) to become John Boehner’s successor as Speaker of the House and it comes from none other than Harry Reid, who apparently endorsed his candidacy last night. While admitting he does not have much in common with Paul Ryan Harry Reid talked about how he has been able to work with him in the past.

  Here is more:

The Democratic leader offered his surprise backing for Ryan (R-Wis.) to assume the House speakership, saying he hopes Ryan runs and wins the job because he’s a “Paul Ryan fan.”

“He appears to me to be one of the people over there that would be reasonable. I mean look at some of the other people,” Reid said. “I don’t agree with him…

Nothing to see folks…

Looks like some people got their knickers in a bunch because the cast of the new Star Wars has too much melanin in their skin. The hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII exploded on Twitter Monday, just hours before the release of a new trailer during ESPN’s Monday Night Football game between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia...

An overreach of religious freedom?

One of the big topics du jour is the concept of religious freedom.  Many state legislatures have passed laws because the Christian god somehow disapproves of baking cakes for gay couples.  However, even the supporters of these laws did not intend on what is happening in DC. The District of Columbia’s transportation department has offered... Continue Reading →
