“Smoking Doesn’t Kill” and more Horrifying Quotes from Mike Pence, our Potential Future President

Yeah, Trump’s VP choice Indiana Governor Mike Pence really said that! In his defense though, he was given $100,000 in campaign donations from the tobacco industry.

The Tangled Web of Republican Hypocrisy

Few things in the world, this side of Booby Trap, excite me as much as Republican hypocrisy. How better to prove my point, than to reveal the person that I am arguing with, lives their life contrary to their principles.

Bernie’s America Begins Today

Bernie just uttered that endorsement, that so many Bernie supporters vowed would never happen. I am certain that in time, most Bernie supporters will follow Bernie’s advice to think about the future instead of the past.

Regardless, different ecological factors have contributed to a dramatic decline in fresh water mussels. Contaminated seawater, for example, kills off many mussels. But the ones that remain are some of the strongest specimens in the world. In fact, mussels are the oldest living creatures in Europe. Like the fresh water mussel, our democracy… Keep Reading

According to Conservative Breitbart, Bernie Supporters are Racing Over to Hillary Not Trump

Now that Bernie has all but retired from this election, one constant threat you hear across the near empty stadiums Bernie gave his speeches at is, “I won’t vote for Hillary, I’ll just write Bernie’s name on the ballot.” I have written many articles on how those threats are really insignificant considering how many of those Bernie supporters were Republican or Independent, or anything but Democrat.
