When is government subsidized health insurance okay?

According to Paul Ryan, it is acceptable when it is Medicare..not so much when it is for the rest of the population. While he was Chair (and author of the Path to Poverty Prosperity) of the House Budget Committee, Ryan claimed that his “new” Medicare plan would control costs by having a more competitive market […]

Losers Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney: Hillary Clinton “beatable” in 2016

This is ironic, coming from two men who’ve demonstrated they know nothing about how to win a presidential race. “Looking at her record, seeing how ineffective she was in securing more security, is going to be a great handicap for her in the general election,” said Romney. “I don’t think it’ll hurt her in the […]

Paul Ryan takes Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS after voting to cut funding for ALS research

Yesterday I posted video of me taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and I noted that ALS research is a cause worth donating to, especially given the drastic cuts to ALS funding by the federal government.

” Hammerin’ Hank ” knocks another one out of the park

Home run king Hank Aaron ( sorry Barry Bonds, but Hank will always be my home run king ) came under fire recently for saying that racism is alive and well in America. At an event marking the 40th anniversary of his record breaking 715th home run Aaron told USA Today, in apparent reference to […]
