With the holidays coming up and with all the tension taking place in the news this week, I figured we all needed a laugh. Nacho Punch provides that by poking fun at our greed and mass consumerism with a fake movie trailer done in the style of horror film, The Purge. Enjoy the video above and Happy Thanksgiving.
Senator Ted Cruz was a kind of guest of honor during his visit of top Jewish donors and Israel supporters in NYC and during a lunch he actually said that he's not very conservative, I kid you not. I'd have to say that's the joke of the year. NY Observer: Mr. Show More Summary
Fox News is always trying to prove that there's an ulterior motive for profit when it comes to influential members of the Black community. The grotesque contortion of facts that support the narrative that Black America deserves what it gets is the unanimous opinion of the guests on the 'news' network. Show More Summary
To be clear, Democrats don’t deserve all or most of the blame for an economy that still punishes the poor and middle class 7 years into the economic crisis that began building in 2007 just because Obama has been president for most of those years- not even close. Show More Summary

This might be one of the more achingly stupid and infuriating conversations I've ever seen on Fox -- and that's saying a lot. Megyn Kelly, who's the "smart" one on Fox (she graduated from third-tier Albany Law School and then workedShow More Summary
Andrea Mitchell had Ruth Marcus and Chris Cillizza on to gnash over Chuck Hagel's confirmation. But I fail to understand her logic here. Speaking about the prospects for Hagel's replacement, Marcus says "We have a very important pending...Show More Summary
Darren Wilson is 6'4" tall and weighs around 210 pounds. I offer these facts so that you have some perspective as you read through some of his impressions of Mike Brown, and his descriptions of the 'disadvantage' he found himself in. Wilson's...Show More Summary
That whole Ferguson grand jury charade last night was utter and illegal bullshit. You know why? Because the only purpose of a grand jury is to see if there's a prima facie case -- that is, does enough evidence on its face exist to bring charges? Of course it did. What the corrupt, smug and arrogant St. Show More Summary
Chuck Hagel is resigning as defense secretary under pressure from the White House. As Dave Weigel notes, John McCain is vigorously defending Hagel: In a morning interview with NewsTalk 550, McCain struck back at the idea that Hagel was incompetent, or that he was the problem with the administration. "I just talked to him," said McCain. Show More Summary

Apparently, there's a group of "truthers" who believe that Stevie Wonder isn't actually blind and that it's some sort of prank that got way out of hand. As interesting as that might sound, it's also pretty insensitive and weird. They...Show More Summary
Not that it wasn't expected. Still, this was only a probable cause proceeding, and the corroborated testimony of more than five eyewitnesses seemed like pretty compelling testimony to at least try Darren Wilson for the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. Now we know their decision. It feels unjust. Watch the live stream of the crowd reaction above.
So sick of these businesses who can't even extend human kindness to the people who help them make their money: Last week, a delivery driver for a restaurant in Napierville, Illinois made what he thought was a reasonable request–he needed time off to have cancer surgery. Show More Summary
No, really. They're not even Swedish! They're a "charity" that's based in the Netherlands, allegedly to promote design and architecture.
