by Jacob Sprecher I’m not really sure what to make of President Obama’s recent statement in support of same-sex marriage. Anyone that’s not 80 years old or a brain-dead hillbilly knows full well that marriage should be legalized across the sexual board, and, thusly, we should all be gleeful at the “evolution” of President Obama’s [...]

Pertinent shit.Let’s take a step towards solving our financial calamity by ending the nearly 40-year war on drugs. Just the thought of the waste of lives and money boils my bones. Bill Haney sums it up nicely (in a tldr fashion) on the Huffington Post: Prohibition was repealed during the Depression of the 1930s, as [...]
With the recent release of secret CIA memos concerning torture techniques used by military personal to obtain information from “the enemy”, people are turning this whole thing into a gigantic deal. With saying that, I do not condone torture of prisoners for many reason BUT shit happens in war. We have killed thousands and thousands of people the past [...]
While US Navy SEALS were parachuting onto the deck of a US Warship, authorized by President Obama to use deadly force in the rescue of American ship Captain Richard Phillips, whom was successfully recovered after snipers shot three Somali pirates dead, the usual suspects in the right-wing punditry club were too busy calling President Obama a coward for his failure to act and relishing the impending doom of Capt Phillips, to even notice.
If, like me, you’re the kind of person that loves wasting the hours away by watching the degenerative brain candy that is cable news, then you’ve no doubt heard that reliable old political nugget “class warfare” bandied about quite a bit lately in regards to the tax policies of our new President.

This morning Rick Santelli laid down the pwn on the Obama Administration’s Mortgage Bail-Out plan and I have to say he’s got a point: at what point do we need to stop sponsoring financial stupidity, both institutionally and individually?
Senator Gregg Statement on His Withdrawal for Consideration of U.S. Commerce Secretary
On my daily stroll through Faux Fox News today, I saw a little link that was in a sea of “Obama Is Power Crazy” and “Democrats Are Nazi Zombie” posts that looked like it could use some attention. I clicked the little guy, and came to a delightful read about how Halliburton was bribing the [...]
This “war” has been going on now for what seems like forever. It’s been a whopping 6 years since President Bush’s ‘Mission Accomplished’ speech on the USS Abraham Lincoln, yet even with Obama in office, I don’t see much of an end in sight. There has been countless cries against the gutless human rights violations, [...]
When I woke up the morning after the elections were over, the first thing I did when I got to work was hit the web in search of responses from the two biggest anti-left personalities: Bill O’Reilly & Rush Limbaugh. Through the last 3 months or so, I’ve seen a distinct yet subtle difference in [...]
