What Has Happened to Conan?Apr 14, 2014jaredsxtn52
What has happened to Conan O'Brien? This is a question I asked myself more than once last night as I watched the MTV Movie Awards that the comedian hosted. The former 'Late Night' icon, who justifiably had the right to be jaded after his historic crash and burn as host of 'The Tonight Show,' just didn't seem like the comedian I used stay up late and watch during my teenage years. He was trying too hard and didn't look comfortable throughout the show. The problem with a personality like Conan O'Brien hosting...
It's Time For The NHL PlayoffsApr 12, 2014ClayTaylorNC349
It's that time of the year again, and I couldn't be more excited. There's something about a good hockey game that is more exciting than almost any other sport. Of course I have always been a fan of the best team there is, the 'Chicago Blackhawks'. There are many fans for this team that jumped on board right after they won as underdog against the 'Philadelphia Flyers' a few years back. But no, not me. I was there with them ever since I first got into hockey. With that being said, the Stanley cup playoffs are...
The Federal Income Tax: A Patriotic Duty For a Better AmericaApr 11, 2014jaredsxtn84
April 15th is a day that elicits a strong emotion in many of us Americans. While millions of Americans have already filed their Federal Income taxes, there are always millions more procrastinators out there who wait until the final minute to submit their paperwork. Everyone has their own reasons for doing their taxes when they do them. Most people who know they will be receiving a tax rebate have filed their taxes long ago while the last minute stragglers tend to be those individuals who will most likely owe...
'Game of Thrones' Season 4 PremierApr 6, 2014ClayTaylorNC125
The long awaited, and highly anticipated season 4 of 'Game of Thrones' airs tonight at 9:00pm. There has been much debate over what will take place this season. With 'Daenerys Targaryan’s' dragons seemingly getting more and more out of control, some think they may end up turning on her in the end. Dragons bow down to no one. These animals aren't cute pets anymore, and are bound to snap eventually with primal instinct. “They’re getting bigger and it’s simple logistics,” Emilia Clarke Said. If that day does happen...
Who are America's Real Welfare Queens?Apr 6, 2014jaredsxtn109
What if I said the welfare queen in Texas or the single mother baby making factory in Chicago aren't real people? Would you be surprised to find out these are mythical people created by Ronald Reagan and the conservative right as they began their decades long war in their never ending drive to paint poor Americans as the real problem? The conservative movement has done a phenomenal job staying on message for the past two decades of turning rich against poor and washing over the reality that America's real...
The Case For Section 8Apr 4, 2014jaredsxtn102
One of the most misunderstood and falsely maligned Federal programs in the United States is Section 8 of the United States Housing Act. The program, which provides assistance to over three million citizens, helps ensure that people have a roof over their heads when they hit hard times and is designed to help lift people out of poverty by helping them save up for a place of their own in the future. The biggest misconceptions about Section 8 is that it's free housing. When many well off people think of public...
April Fools in a High Tech World 2014Apr 1, 2014Zach F91
April Fool’s day is here, and with it, the internet pranks. Hi-tech companies have started going to great lengths to have a little fun. In 2004, the popular MMORPG World of Warcraft announced they were introducing the two-headed ogre as a playable race and that 2 players would have to cooperate to control one character. In 2012, Google released and 8-bit version of their map software. And in 2013 YouTube announced it was shutting down for 10 years to find “The Best Video on the Internet” and Reddit.com divided...

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...
