Let's not add to Egypt's ArsenalJul 17, 2014vincentlibertarian44
President Obama should reconsider the recent release of military aid to Egypt because it is more important to be true to our core values of a free press and justice based on a rule of law rather than waste these convictions with a regime that gives no value in regional stability. After this week’s rocketry and counter bombing in Gaza we find that General Sisi is no man of influence. That Hamas in Palestine chose to ignore a cease fire brokered by Egypt indicates that the Anwar Sadat peace keeping influence in...
Yoenis Cespedes Wins 2nd MLB Home Run DerbyJul 15, 2014ClayTaylorNC256
The Home Run Derby is a competition in MLB (Major League Baseball) in which the objective is to hit the most home runs in one game. The competition has been an annual event since 1985 and has been catching the attention of baseball fans around the world ever since. It's much like the NFL all star game in which two competitors are chosen as captains, then the captains choose from any players in the league to fill their teams. Basically taking the excitement from all years games and mashing them into one. This...
Vietnam’s Overdue Alliance With AmericaJul 13, 2014vincentlibertarian48
My previous post called the Kurds our natural friends who we are about to betray if we insist that they self sacrifice themselves to the impossible task of holding Iraq together. Now I see Tuong Lai's editorial "Vietnam’s Overdue Alliance With America" with a sense of guilt by a baby boomer who wondered why we fought Ho Chi Minh, a revolutionary leader who asked the Truman Administration for help to liberate Viet Nam from French colonial rule. Why was it again that we rejected our heritage and sided with the...
Tax Preparation Industry is the Wild West of the 21st CenturyJul 12, 2014jaredsxtn126
The tax preparation industry is one of those industries that everyone loves to hate. Since the average American doesn't understand the tax code, these organizations step in and promise to take care of everything for you. All you need to do is give them a hefty fee and voila, your taxes are now done. If you're lucky, you'll get some money back. If you're not, you may wind up owing some money. And if you're really unlucky, you visited a sham organization and now owe the IRS thousands of dollars. When you think...
LeBron James Rejoins With Cleveland; Haters Forced To Do 180Jul 11, 2014sbfriedman163
After weeks of uncertainty and guesswork by the league and media, LeBron James has finally decided what team he wants to play for since becoming a free agent; he's coming back to where it all started, back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. That's right. The prodigal son is returning. LeBron James is going back to the town that openly expressed a mountain of hate directly squared at him for when he left. You abandoned us, they cried. Traitor, they screamed. Now, 4 years later, those same people are still around....
Strange Full Moon To Disturb Sleep All SummerJul 11, 2014ClayTaylorNC264
Folklore has said the moon cycles have a large role in humans and animals sleep methods and quality. With the next full moon approaching July 12th, I wonder how many people this will actually affect. There have been some very interesting studies done before, during, and just after full moon cycles that show this folklore to actually hold great weight. A Florida animal expert studied the patterns of several different animals while the moon was in full peak and showed several changes in...
The Kurds are an Oasis of Sanity not to be SquanderedJul 10, 2014vincentlibertarian56
In Iraq we support borders drawn in the sand by European colonialist close to a century ago. Now we ask the only sane actor in the region, the Kurds with aspirations for independence such as was ours, to throw themselves back into the boiling cauldron of Iraq. What is it with our foreign policy in my baby boomer lifetime that fails our natural friends and bolsters reactionary forces that deny our revolutionary heritage and ultimately fail us? The U. S. should recognize that Iraq is broken and that we can’t...
My Ballot for the 2014 Emmy AwardsJul 10, 2014sbfriedman322
2014 Emmy nominees were just announced. Here are the main categories, with my picks for who I think should win and why. Major Categories: Outstanding Drama Series: "Breaking Bad" (AMC) "Downton Abbey" (PBS) "Game of Thrones" (HBO) "House of Cards" (Netflix) "Mad Men" (AMC) "True Detective" (HBO) Full disclosure: I haven't watched any of Downton Abbey. So, I obviously can't comment there. But, the contenders for this main category are clearly Breaking Bad and True Detective. While Games of...

Latest Conservative Lies Added

StartedRepeated LieAboutQuotes (SORT)
04/16/14The Census is Being Manipulated to Skew Obamacare Numbers Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
President Obama's critics are claiming that the Census Bureau has changed its annual survey's questions to determine the amount of individuals who have health care coverage so the Obama Administration will be able to report that more American's have health coverage than actually do. The truth of the matter is that the new questions were developed during the Bush Administration, well before Obamacare became law, and are intended to provide a more accurate number of the amount of individuals who have health insurance coverage.
2013Small Businesses Dropping Majority of Employees Due to ACAObamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Republicans are falsely claiming the Affordable Care Act has forced upwards of 75 percent of small business owners to fire employees or to cut their hours so they won't have to pay for health insurance coverage. In actuality, only 17 percent of businesses have notified their employees that there will be layoffs or their hours will be cut.
2013 DECMedicare application is used to create a gun registryMedicare, Gun Control & NRA0
The NRA and other pro gun advocates are falsely claiming that the application for Medicare asks individuals to disclose how many guns they own so they can make a gun registry. The fact of the matter is that there is no question on Medicare's application which asks about gun ownership and there never has been.
11/27/13President Obama Closed The Vatican Embassy Vatican City, Barack Obama, Republican Party & Italy0
Conservatives are claiming that President Obama has closed down the American embassy in the Vatican. In actuality, there are no embassies from any country within the Vatican, because the county is too small. The Obama Administration has decided to move out of our current embassy in Rome and relocate to the same compound as the American embassy to Italy. It will be located in a separate building within the compound and will have its own separate entrance.
11/19/13Obama Omitted "Under God" From Gettysburg Address RecitationBarack Obama0
Republicans are up in arms after President Obama didn't say "under God" while participating in a taping of the Gettysburg Address for filmmaker Ken Burns. In actuality, the original version of the Gettysburg Address did not contain those words and President Obama was reading from the copy that Mr. Burns provided for the President to read.
2013 NOVMedicaid Expansion Will Bankrupt StatesMedicaid & Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Many Republican states have claimed they rejected Medicaid expansion because it would have bankrupted their state. In actuality, multiple independent economic experts insist that expanding Medicaid will be very favorable to the states because of the out sized role the Federal Government plays and also the savings that states will realize by not using other vital resources on their uninsured citizens.
2013 NOVMedicaid Doesn't Provide Quality Health CoverageMedicaid & Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Many Republicans claim that Medicaid doesn't provide quality health coverage. The truth of the matter is that Medicaid has improved the lives and provided quality coverage to millions of citizens. States that have expanded Medicaid have documented lower costs because individuals that would have typically gone to the emergency room for routine care now go to their physician, which costs much less.
10/24/13Obamacare Website Costs Upwards of One Billion DollarsObamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Conservatives are falsely claiming that the much maligned Obamacare website cost the Federal Government upwards of one billion dollars. They are pointing to numbers that show the company that was tasked with building the website, CGI Federal, has received over $600 million dollars from the Federal Government. What they are neglecting to mention is that this number is the total amount of dollars this company has received from the Federal Government with nearly all of it coming before the botched website. In actuality, the co...
