Yes, Even Celebrities Have a Right to PrivacySep 1, 2014jaredsxtn0276
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, 2014vincentlibertarian1231
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...
Joan Rivers in Medically Induced Coma After Throat Procedure Goes AwryAug 29, 2014jaredsxtn221341
Actress and comedian Joan Rivers is in a medically induced coma and in serious condition at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital after going into cardiac arrest during a routine medical procedure. Ms. Rivers was undergoing throat surgery to repair her vocal chords when she stopped breathing and was rushed to the hospital. According to her daughter, Melissa River, she is now 'resting comfortably' at the hospital. Rivers is now 82 years old and has publicly battled numerous health problems before, but none to this...
Corporations Are Paying Historically Low Tax RatesAug 28, 2014sbfriedman2484
The corporate tax rate is a heavily debated topic in this country. And many on the far right and those on the side of big business sight that upwards of a 35% corporate tax rate is far too high a premium to pay in taxes, just to do business in the United States. 'What, are you trying to force large manufacturers and job creators to do their business in other countries, or what?', they ask. It's a fair question. And, when you add in (on the top end) up to another 4.2% state tax for big business, that's a rate...
Why is Funding Head Start a Political Issue?Aug 27, 2014jaredsxtn23152
Few federal programs have as much of a direct impact on the lives of millions of low income citizens in this country than the Head Start program does. Head Start, which was enacted as one of President Johnson's 'War on Poverty' initiatives and conceptualized by a woman named Jule Sugarman, originally started as a three week program to get low income children caught up on what they need to know to be able to start kindergarten. President Jimmy Carter greatly expanded the program during his Presidency, providing...
Who Will Take MTV Video Music Awards? Full Nominees ListAug 23, 2014ClayTaylorNC12157
The MTV Video Music Awards has been gaining momentum and popularity ever since it began in 1984. Now fast forward all this time to today, and so much has changed in every way possible. And as history has proved, this year will surely top the last. The Award ceremony has caught plenty of criticism over the last few years, as to its lack of caring for the actual music. More for the lights and glitter. A few years ago Adam Levine tweeted, “The VMA's. One day a year when MTV pretends to still care about music. I'm...
Labor Day Milestone: Fair Labor Wasn't A Standard Until 1938Aug 22, 2014sbfriedman23224
It's standard in today's American workplace to work 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week. But did you ever wonder where they came up with those numbers in the first place? The short answer, labor unions lobbied Congress for decades until The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 was signed into law by President Franklin Roosevelt. So, I just want to take a few moments to outline just how that went down, in light of the fact that Labor Day is just around the corner. You may think that 40 hours a week is too much for the...
How Tennis' US Open Became "Open" In The First PlaceAug 20, 2014sbfriedman02216
There's an interesting story to be told about the The US Open Tennis Championships, an annual sporting tournament that has its roots dating all the way back to 1881. And that story has to do with the tournament's history of inclusion, and it's ability to innovate the sport of tennis throughout the years. Today, this tournament is the last in succession of four major tennis tournaments that make up the Grand Slam, or Majors as they are called, for tennis. And the tournament as we know it now consists of five...

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...
