Double Speak

© Rebecca Hendin I don’t get it. The Chicken Hawks seem to be claiming that the only way to avoid war with Iran is to go to war against them. Isn’t this the same logic that got us into trouble with Iraq and other countries? As the book said, “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, […]

Swift Boating Trump?

The Republicans are desperately trying to get rid of Donald Trump. I mean they have even asked him nicely to shut up, or at least dial it back a few notches. But Trump continues to be Trump, and he keeps rising in the polls. What’s a GOP to do? Their plan was to wait for […]

Time Delayed Hypocrisy

© Chan Lowe Have all those Republicans who are condemning Obama’s nuke agreement with Iran forgotten it was Saint Ronnie who illegally and secretly sold weapons to Iran (even though Congress had passed an arms embargo against them) in order to fund a terrorist group in Central America? I guess when the GOP votes to […]

Taking us Back to our Fore-Fore Fathers

© Matt Bors How did we change from a country of immigrants, to a country that calls immigrants “criminals” and “rapists”? Aren’t immigrants (most of) us? Heck, if you go back far enough, even “native” Americans came from somewhere.

Channeling Intent

© Ruben Bolling I know I’ve already pointed out the hypocrisy of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia but this comic was just too funny. I think I have a new theory. Maybe the conservative justices are just treating the Constitution like the Bible. After all, you can justify almost any behavior by selectively picking verses […]

It is more than 5 years later…

And all that stuff has been implemented. And please, before you leave, make sure Sean Hannity has his waterboarding charity event.

The Crankiness of Scalia

Scalia seems to have had a very bad day. He didn’t get things to go his way. But that’s ok because Jon is here, To humorously make the hypocrisy clear. As Stewart explains it, “I think we found Scalia’s tell. The Crankiness of Scalia’s insults runs inverse to his intellectual consistency.”

Catholic in Name Only

Republicans successfully purged moderates from their party by saying that they were RINO — Republicans in Name Only. But now we are seeing something truly amazing — conservatives who profess to be Catholics attacking Pope Francis and calling him names, because he issued a papal encyclical on climate change that calls on us to reject […]

Terrorist Propaganda

Glenn Greenwald makes a strong argument that the word “Terrorism” has become a meaningless propaganda term in the West. Or maybe not meaningless, but the meaning has sunk to “any heinous act of violence perpetrated by a Muslim or other minority, usually against white westerners”. How else do you explain how hardly anyone is describing […]

Charleston South Carolina Shooting

Jon Stewart points out the utter hypocrisy our response to Islamic terrorism compared to our own ongoing racial terrorism: Some people have suggested that Jon Stewart run for political office. Maybe even president. And I don’t mean like Stephen Colbert ran for president. This video is evidence that Stewart could easily make the transition from […]

Affirmative Political Action

Yesterday I posted about how Americans almost unanimously say that our system for funding elections is broken and needs to be dramatically changed. Here’s a good example of why they feel that way, and an organization that is doing something about it. The Campaign Legal Center (CLC) has announced that they are suing the Federal […]

Leaving Science to the Scientists

One advantage that people of faith enjoy is that they are not limited to being consistent. A good example is presidential candidate Rick Santorum. Santorum has long been a proponent of “intelligent design”, which is a fancy term for requiring public schools to “teach about the role of God or a Creator” as part of […]

Gender, on Balance

Jon Stewart points out the underlying hypocrisy of the media reaction to Bruce Jenner becoming Caitlyn Jenner:

The Rape of Logic

© Jen Sorensen Even many people who are “pro-life” carve out exceptions for rape and incest, not to mention if the health of the mother is threatened. But not the Helms Act, which makes no exceptions. And that’s what leads to this incredibly stupid situation. We condemn radical Islamists because some of them treat women […]

Executive Disorder

Last month, Indiana passed a strong anti-gay-rights law and it caused a national backlash against the state. So you might think that other states would think twice before doing something similar. But that logic doesn’t apply to Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana and likely presidential candidate. Instead of thinking twice, he is doubling down. […]
