Bought and Paid For Journalism

Never heard of Sinclair Broadcast Group? Well you should know them, because they very well could be filling your head with far-right-wing propaganda. And if Donald Trump has his way, it will get far worse. Believe me.

Conservative Response to Jimmy Kimmel

This blog recently posted about Jimmy Kimmel and the near-death of his newborn son. Kimmel made the point that nobody should be put in the position of having to decide if they can afford to save their child, and scolds Trump and the Republicans for being heartless. Well, conservative Jonah Goldberg decided to respond to […]

Stephen v. Stephen

Stephen Colbert’s conservative alter-ego makes an appearance on The Late Show, to complain about Trump’s budget: BTW, in the “interesting silver lining” category, after lagging behind the two Jimmies ever since it started, Colbert’s The Late Show has now been the top late night talk show for seven weeks. In other words, ever since Trump […]

Getting the Hell out of Dodge

In the TV show “Gunsmoke” the bad guys were often ordered to “get the hell out of Dodge” — a reference to Dodge City, Kansas. Well, it looks like somebody has told that to Kansas Governor Sam Brownback. The word is out that Brownback is not only leaving the state, but leaving the country as […]

Flagging Trump’s Russian Connections

On Friday, Donald Trump gave a speech at CPAC. But before Trump spoke someone wearing a suit passed out Red, White, and Blue flags with Trump’s name on them. People began waving them. Except, the colors were not in that order, they were White, Blue, and Red. Apparently unbeknown to the attendees, that is the […]

Disinformation as Art

The website realtruenews.org pretends to be a conservative website, but its stories are all made up. In fact, the creator of this site Marco Chacon has elevated to a high art his goal of seeing how outrageous and unbelievable he can make a story, and still fool people. He has written up fake transcripts of […]

How the GOP created the Abortion Issue

At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, most evangelical Christians didn’t care about abortion. Back then, people who were against abortion were almost exclusively Catholics, while evangelicals are protestants — you know the people whose name comes from the fact that they protested against the Catholics. But six years later the GOP needed […]

What is a Conservative?

Most people think of the Republican party as being made up of evangelicals and fiscal conservatives, held together by AM radio and Fox News. Never mind that when Republicans were in power they spent money like drunken sailors while not accomplishing much in their social agenda (and even going backwards on gay rights). But at […]

Please Don’t Move to Canada

Some liberals still think Canada is a lonely outpost of sanity. They haven’t been paying attention lately. If you think you’re going to move to Canada if Trump gets elected president, you might want to have a Plan B. We aren’t the only country to have a crazy conservative backlash!

Risky Business

© Tom Tomorrow Why is it that people become terrified over insignificant things, while totally ignoring the things that are really killing us. And I think I am safe to say that this is not something that is limited to right wingers. For example, liberals who are afraid of immunizations. In fact, liberals are generally […]

Foundation of Civilization?

The Family Research Council (FRC) says that their mission is “to champion marriage and family as the foundation of civilization, the seedbed of virtue, and the wellspring of society”, which is social conservative speak meaning that they fight against same sex marriage. They seem to be losing the gay marriage battle, and it sounds like […]
