Americans Really Have No Idea How Our Government FunctionsSep 19, 2014jaredsxtn2384
A recent survey conducted by the Public Policy Center of Pennsylvania asked over 1,400 American adults to do a simple task that every elementary school child should know, which is to name the three branches of our federal government. The results leave me more than a little frustrated and despaired. Over one third of respondents could not name the three branches of government. More than one third! Think that things can't possibly get worse from there? I'm sorry to inform you, but things get much, much worse...
Corporal Punishment is Just a Fancy Name For Legalized Child AbuseSep 14, 2014jaredsxtn12231
When does corporal punishment cross the line into child abuse? This is a question that will garner a different answer from a broad swath of people and one that is not easy to come by. Some people, especially those from an earlier generation, tend to strongly believe in the right to discipline their child in a way they see fit. Others will say that corporal punishment is legally sanctioned child abuse and that we need to protect vulnerable children who can not protect themselves. Both sides are uncompromising in...
It's Déjà vu All Over Again; Obama Prepares the Nation For War With ISISSep 10, 2014jaredsxtn43282
While the rumors of America's impending return to active hostilities in the Middle East have been getting louder by the day, I continued to hold out hope that the President would resist the headwinds and use his prime time address to educate the nation how it is impossible to defeat an ideology with bombs and missiles alone. I know this naive way of thinking is unrealistic, but I can't help but feel a little disappointed that the President has succumbed to the pressure of the war hawks on both sides of the aisle...
Will The Chain of Male Heirs Be Broken With Kate's Second Child?Sep 8, 2014jaredsxtn03633
What is it like knowing that you are fourth in line to a throne that stretches back to 871 AD? One lucky individual is about to find out after Prince William and Kate Middleton announced they are expecting their second child. Their new child will fall behind Princes Charles, William, and George in line of succession to the throne. The British Royal family has largely been relegated to a figurehead position, but their influence over England and the United Kingdom is unmistakable. Queen Elizabeth yields...
'Dancing With The Stars' Cast and Matchups Revealed!Sep 4, 2014ClayTaylorNC2415782
This will be ABC's 19th season for the ever so popular 'Dancing With the Stars'. Every year seems to top the last with over the top performances, new interesting contenders, and a more than healthy volume of watchers. Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announced the new cast live today on 'Good Morning America' in Times Square. I have to say this years cast is more of a surprise to me than last years. The main two people who caught me off guard the most were Tommy Chong, and Randy Couture. Chong seems to of been...
GOP Impoverishes not EnrichesSep 4, 2014vincentlibertarian0043
John Heilemann on Charlie Rose mentioned Congressman Paul Ryan as having a compelling GOP message in development so that I watched his CPAC presentation from last spring where I failed to see anything to save the Republican party from disappointment this fall and obliteration in 2016; specifically because their focus on austerity will be contrasted by good economic news. "Surprise: Per Capita Medicare Spending is Falling" as reported in The New Times' Upshot is part of the lie that Republicans are good stewards...
Yes, Even Celebrities Have a Right to PrivacySep 1, 2014jaredsxtn03245
The recent release of photos purportedly showing Jennifer Lawrence and a number of other celebrities naked is a serious breach of privacy that should upset anyone who believes in the ideal that everyone, even celebrities, have an inalienable right to privacy. This right is not something that is given away whenever an individual achieves stardom and it must be protected. Lawrence is one of countless celebrities who have seen their most intimate moments broadcast for the world to see, but the rise of revenge...
What is it about John McCain?Aug 31, 2014vincentlibertarian1268
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fall_of_Saigon#mediaviewer/File:Saigon-hubert-van-... Senators John McCain and Lyndsay Graham's New York Times Op Ed of the 29th of August "Stop Dithering and Confront ISIS" has a rather pointless "just do something" sense to it that belies the fact that McCain was a prisoner of war in a conflict based on the same sentiment. Once again I re-iterate that Obama will go down in history as a great president for resisting emotional appeals to do something in a hasty irrational...

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...
