No, Rush Limbaugh Did Not Say That Robin Williams Killed Himself Because He Was Liberal

Once one no longer cares to take more than a cursory glance at a subject, or position with which they disagree, their credibility in all things becomes suspect. Studying politics can be, at times, extremely satisfying, and fascinating. At other times, it can make me want to punch concrete walls until my hands break. I’m prone to using incendiary rhetoric (to appropriate a liberal buzz-phrase) in my writing, and I’m not ashamed of that, because I have taken the time to study, and understand–to Read more […]

What is an Uncle Tom?

The term Uncle Tom as an epithet has never made much sense to me. If you’ve ever read Uncle Tom’s Cabin, you know that Uncle Tom was the protagonist, a slave who was martyred by his master when he refused to give up the location of some runaway slaves. Harriet Beecher Stowe was not responsible for the parodies and adaptations that proliferated after her novel gained widespread success, and it was from those parodies that the term Uncle Tom derived its negative connotation: The popular negative Read more […]

“Moderate” Republicans Doing More Damage Than Democrats

Compromise is to be used when one possesses common ground with their opponent. If one does not have any such common ground, a place where beliefs overlap, there is no benefit to compromise. In fact, without common ground, compromise doesn’t even exist. Moreover, if finding common ground requires one to violate their beliefs, even in the slightest, what is the point? What is the cost, morally, strategically, and politically of compromising, when it forces us to bend what should otherwise be a straight Read more […]

Rush Limbaugh Delivers “Atta-boy” to Seth MacFarlane

Never in three trillion years would I have predicted that Rush Limbaugh and Seth MacFarlane would ever be on the same page on anything. But apparently, they’re friends. Limbaugh has done some voice work for MacFarlane’s show Family Guy. And in the midst of professional connections, they became pals. According to Limbaugh: When [MacFarlane] did the Academy Awards this past year, he was getting all kinds of grief, and I sent him a couple of notes, a couple of “atta-boy” notes. He wrote right Read more […]

George Soros Backed Catholics Blast Rush Limbaugh

Milton Friedman said: “One man’s opportunism is another man’s statesmanship.” Opportunism is the language of politics. Well, allow me to make a clarification. Opportunism is the language of politics, but it shouldn’t be. In a perfect world, politicians would speak in honest terms, and deliver the goods when the time came—though in a perfect world, I suppose we wouldn’t need politicians. Opportunism is a dirty game. It isn’t truthful. Opportunism is a thin mask covering a disfigured face. It’s Read more […]

Who’s More Racist?

In a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports on race issues in America, the polling company comes to an astounding conclusion. A majority of Americans think that blacks are more racist than whites or Hispanics. In fact, even a full 31% of African Americans believe blacks to be more racist. Interestingly, the poll numbers seem to split more closely along party lines than racial ones. “Overall, just 30% of all Americans now rate race relations in the United States as good or excellent.

This is it, folks. Today is Election Day, 2012. It seems like it’s been said about every election, but this is truly the most important presidential election in our lifetimes.
