Watch: Republican Mistakes Kids Attending ‘Y’ Camp for Refugees

After being warned by local sheriff Paul Babeau that buses of immigrant kids were being transported into town, a large protest was organized to block the them. To be fair, another group also showed up to welcome the kids. Republican state legislator and congressional candidate Adam Kwasman rushed in to take advantage of some free […]

The night before George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin his wife left him. In an interview with ABC, Shellie Zimmerman said that she had left her husband George the night before the shooting. If you don’t know anything about domestic violence statistics, this might not have set off any alarms. But I do, and suddenly the […]

Nope, that’s not a typo. According to the latest PPP poll, 29% of republicans polled felt Obama was more responsible than Bush for the poor response to Katrina and 44% were not sure. Only 28% properly identified Bush as the president who failed to adequately respond to the crisis. Thanks Obama! The latest survey from […]

A senior reporter from Fox 31 in Denver demonstrates how easy it is for anyone to get their hands on high powered assault weapons, no questions asked. In just a matter of hours, Senior Investigative Reporter Josh Bernstein bought an AR15, an Uzi and a 9mm MAC 11 with three 30-round magazines and a box […]

A report released by the Violence Policy Center,  “Violence Policy Center Firearm Justifiable Homicides and Non-Fatal Self-Defense Gun Use” destroys the NRA’s claim that “the only thing that stops a bad man with a gun is a good guy with a gun” and that only a miniscule amount of crimes are stopped by armed would-be […]

Another Republican accidentally tells the truth.

State Rep. Rayne Brown says that to many communities and to law enforcement this “is no laughing matter.” North Carolina law already forbids “indecent exposure,” but it doesn’t specifically define “private parts” as including breasts. The proposal adds that definition, including “the nipple, or any portion of the areola, of the human female breast,” with […]
