Glenn Beck: Conservatives Should Boycott Disney Because They're Making a Film About Charles Darwin

YouTube See, this is why America is a laughingstock to much of the world: the casual anti-science ignorance of right wing clowns like Glenn Beck.

A Meeting of the Minds: Rand Paul and Far Right Racist Rancher Cliven Bundy

Back in April 2014, Rand Paul's father Ron came out in support of far right racist anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy (who is on video saying "the nigra" was better off under slavery), and yesterday Rand also expressed his support for Bundy's "cause." This is the real Rand Paul; the guy who...

Bristol Palin Strikes Back at "The Ghouls at Gawker" And Other Critics

She uses bad words, so you know she's pissed! So here are the things you should all get straight before you continue to mock me, judge me, and talk about me. None of us are perfect. I made a mistake, but it's not the mistake all these giddy a$$holes have...

RIP, Chris Squire

YouTube I first heard Chris Squire's amazing bass tone on the album "Yes," which I discovered in a cut-out bin at Records Hawaii way back in 1970. I believe I paid 99 cents for it, and at the time I may have been the only person in Hawaii who was absolutely...

Pro-Confederate Flag Rally in South Carolina: Attendance... Sparse

6 Myths About the Confederacy, Debunked

Time to clear up some misinformation. 1) "It wasn't about slavery." It was totally about slavery. How do we know that? Because the Confederate States were very clear about that particular fact in their Declarations of Secession. Take Mississippi for example: Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery--...

GOHMERT! "God's Hand of Protection Will Be Withdrawn" Because of Same Sex Marriage

The Gohmert is very worked up today (along with the rest of the wingnut-o-sphere) because his fundamentalist religious bigotry can no longer be enforced by the government. Being unable to impose their beliefs on the rest of America, in their warped world view, is of course tyranny. And not only that....
