Looks like another Republican has come out and said something that was not supposed to be said in public. No, it turns out some Democrats weren’t being paranoid or doing spin. Yet another Republican admits the Benghazi committee was designed to go after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for political reasons. In so many... Continue Reading →
Jeb Bush has come up with a way to create economic prosperity. Maybe it’s reverse psychology, or maybe Jeb Bush is trying to reenergize his flagging White House bid by diving cuboidal-head first into absurdity, but the Republican presidential candidate has come out as an advocate for an unlikely cause: recession. I guess since his... Continue Reading →
It seems that Trump and Bush have been going back and forth on GW's handling of 9/11. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump once again provoked a tit-for-tat row on Friday by saying former president George W. Bush must share some of the blame for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Let's look at some facts. GW... Continue Reading →
While this article is not specifically about politics, these cognitive biases are inherent within us. Everybody is guilty of them. Heck, even I catch myself at times. These biases factor into how we view politics. Not only do they affect how we think, they are used by the politicians and media to spread their propaganda.... Continue Reading →
I was wandering the Internet and stumbled on an interesting article. When writer Hanna Rosin recently published an article on Slate.com stating that “the patriarchy is dead,” much of the feminist response amounted to “burn the heretic!” New Republic editor and blogger Nora Caplan-Bricker accused Rosin of “mansplaining”—the femosphere’s pejorative term for supposedly obtuse and...

In Michigan, a police officer shot and killed an unarmed 17 year old while he was fleeing from an officer. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday against Eaton County Sheriff's Sgt. Jonathan Frost and the county, says the officer was driving a new patrol car on Feb. 28 that had "improperly bright or misaimed headlights, even on... Continue Reading →
From the moment that Donald Trump announced his candidacy, conservatives were speculating that he was a plant for Clinton. Well, they are not the only ones who can fashion a tin foil hat and wear it. Allow me to offer my speculation: Bernie Sanders is a plant. Some other have made some interesting points. Bernie... Continue Reading →
One of the first topics in yesterday's debate was the Protection of Legal Commerce in Arms Act (or PLCAA for short). The consensus was as one would expect from Democrats. If there was a surprise, it would have been Sanders as he stuck to his guns (pun intended) on his gun control record. The PLCAA... Continue Reading →
Playboy without nudity is like caffeine free diet mountain dew... what's the point?
This is another sign that the Republicans are a party in turmoil. Paul Ryan's name has been floated as a possible contender to replace Boehner as speaker of the house. Alas, there is opposition from conservatives. It seems that Ryan is not conservative enough. LOLWUT?!?! Is this not the same man whose budget that was... Continue Reading →
Another viral video has surfaced showing a copy applying a choke hold to a teenager in Texas. I encourage one to watch the video which is linked by the article. The Round Rock Police Department says on Thursday afternoon there was a disagreement between two male students. In a press release, RRPD says the Round... Continue Reading →
Jeb Bush has been talking about how the Democrats have been getting voters by offering free stuff. Well, it is not fair to pick on him because that is what the vast majority of Republicans and conservatives have been saying. You can be assured that this is going to come up more often. New York...

American Conservative, a very good conservative publication, posted an article about how the concept of being middle class no longer includes being your own boss. We Americans pride ourselves on being entrepreneurial, and praise for the start-up culture that created Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Airbnb and other global success stories is a staple in the media....

There has been another shooting... I'm not going comment on it now... However, get ready for the finger wagging and chest beating from the pundits and politicians followed by inaction.
I am sure she does; if only because Sanders and O'Mally oppose it. Where have we seen this song and dance before? Oh yeah, she supported NAFTA before she was against it.. If anybody truly thinks that she would not sign TPP if given the chance, that person is clearly naive.
It seems the rumor about McCarthy withdrawing his nomination for speaker of the house was true. Now, begins the next phase... speculating why that is. One of the rumors explaining this is that he was having an affair that someone was threatening to expose. If true, I am not surprised. How often do we hear... Continue Reading →
To be honest it seems to be that way. Both the liberal media and the DNC have been stacking the deck in her favor. The liberal media do not give any coverage of her opponents; thus keeping the public in the dark about them. Plus, the DNC not only scheduled a scant few debates, they... Continue Reading →
Rumor is that Kevin McCarthy, who was considered to be the top choice to replace Boehner as speaker of the house, has withdrawn his candidacy for that position. This really should not come of any surprise as he make a so-called gaffe about the Benghazi hearings essentially stating what many of us suspected; the hearing... Continue Reading →
Yet, again. There's been another mass shooting. Yet, again. Nothing is going to be done to address it. The attitude is well... stuff happens. Yes, "stuff happens." However, when "stuff happens," maybe we should try to figure out why "stuff happens." But no, we are not even allowed to study why "stuff happens." Why is... Continue Reading →
Ok, I really suck at this blogging thing. I want to do all of these wonderful things but I simply do not have the time to do them. Rather than trying to do something that I know I am not going to be able to do, I'll just stick to commentary and opinions about what... Continue Reading →
