Exchanging the Truth for a Lie

2016-05-14_0716-trump-the-conman

2016 has been a head of head-shaking and face-palming for millions of American Citizens as we watched with disgust, disillusionment, and dismay as millions of other American Citizens grasped onto a seemingly unending stream of fake news stories. They then proceeded to repost, retweet, and retell them as if they were factual stories, grounded in…

A Word to Pro-Lifers

From the start of this election season that ended up with Donald Trump as the President-Elect, there have been many stories, posts, videos, and other forms of communication regarding the most prominent single-issue that conservatives have been focusing on. Abortion. This, of course, is not new for conservatives. It is a mantra, of sorts. Kind…

More than fifty-three percent of women voted Trump over Clinton, in spite of Trump’s rampant and unapologetic misogyny, his brazen degradation of women by classifying them according to a superficial numerical scale, his wanton belief that they can be sexually assaulted at will, and his record with his current and former wives. A lot of…

The Importance of Progressive Activism

There is line between being outspoken and being a complete jerk. Yes, it is a line that I have crossed now and again. I suspect I will cross it again, in the future. I take issue when there are attacks against those who are unable to – for whatever reason – defend themselves. I take…

Faith in Humanity: Lost

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was interviewed by Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Tuesday, October 25th. It didn’t go well for the Newt. They got into a rather heated exchange, which culminated in Gingrich accusing Kelly of being “fascinated with sex” for reporting on the accusations of sexual assault allegedly committed by Donald Trump. Kelly’s…

Proof Trump Never Mocked Disabled Reporter?

Sometimes in life you just have to be a sweary guy. This is one of those times. If profanity makes your ears burn, stop here and put in a Disney Video… I just read the most insulting thing today on Herman Cain‘s Facebook page. No, I don’t follow Herman Cain. It was a repost. The…

Thanks, Obama!

wlpg1

Thanks, Obama, for almost 80 straight months of economic expansion. We are horrified that the US economy has improved. How dare you! You have some nerve for your part in our enjoyment of the longest period of job growth in the private sector in our history as a nation. I just cannot believe that you…

The Hillary Clinton Conspiracy Train

conspiracy

No, Hillary Clinton did NOT say that Christians in America must deny their faith. No, doctors are not ripping fetuses out of wombs days before delivery. No, the Democrats are not falsifying every legitimate poll. No, Clinton operatives didn’t assassinate Justice Antonin Scalia. No, dead people are not voting in this (or any) election. No,…

Victim Blaming, the Disabled, and God

ot-god

On the list of things that piss me off, nestled right there near the top, are people informing me that my disabilities are punishment from God.  It is only my desire not to be incarcerated which stops me from resorting to my more base instincts. This happens more often that you might think. I used…

George Soros: Anti-Communist, Progressive Advocate

goodwp-com_22326

George Soros. If you read the right wing websites and the tin foil hat outlets, you’d thing this man is single-handedly destroying democracy accross the entire planet. You’d think he was an advocate for turning the world into a communist haven. You’d be exposed to all kinds of conspiracy theories, and when you are done,…

Regarding the Final 2016 Presidential Debate

trump_angry

Last night, Secretary Clinton and Mr. Trump faced off for the last time as debate opponents. Needless to say, Clinton wiped the floor with Trump. Yes, Trump performed slightly better than he did during the last debate, but Hillary was on top of her game. She conducted herself with poise, professionalism, and clarity. Trump, on…
