Occupy Wall Street: Effective Protest or Waste of Time?
Despite numerous eviction attempts, the approach of winter weather, the return of the NBA, and the ongoing Kardashian saga, the Occupy Wall Street protests are still going strong. Protesters began a sit-in style protest in New York's Zucotti Park in September. Groups in other cities around the world followed suit in protesting income inequality, bank bailouts, and high unemployment. The protests have attracted attention from media outlets ranging from Fox News to Saturday Night Live. But...

Romney's In, But How Far Can He Go This Time?
Whether you think he's homely and earnest or just another flip-flopping, slick-haired use car salesman or robot husband prototype, you better get used to Mitt Romney because he's not fading into political obscurity anytime soon. The former Massachusetts governor is once again tossing his hat into the ever-expanding GOP presidential ring, where most polls place him as the steady frontrunner. Like some of his fellow contenders, he made the Thursday announcement in New Hampshire, where ...

Westboro Baptist Church Too Extreme for the KKK
The Klu Klux Klan and the notoriously homophobic Westboro Baptist Church are ironically like gays and many pro-life conservatives: they're two groups that could easily work together, but one group's hatred is too extreme for any potential ally. At least that appeared to be the case on Monday before President Obama led the Memorial Day ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery. Three members of the Topeka, Kansas-based cult of hate church found themselves face to face with about 80 ...

The 7 Terrorist Leaders Still On the US Hit List
Osama bin Laden was undoubtedly the biggest terrorism target in the world. Eliminating the leader of al-Qaeda is nothing short of a great accomplishment, especially after more than a decade of searching. He was, however, just one man. In the global war on terror, if you take out one leader, eight other guys will pop up to take his place. In the United States' current case, there are at least seven major extremist leaders that the United States is still after. 7. Abu Yahya al-Libi A ...

Should Paternity Testing Be Mandatory? The Mildred Baena Case
Hey guys, want to know what I've got that most of you don't? Peace of mind that my kids are, in fact, mine. Unless you've grown a child inside your uterus and cursed Mother Nature herself upon that babe's birth, it's hard to really truly know a child is of your genetics, save for a paternity test. Sure, your wife/girlfriend/booty call/one-night-lay is a stand-up girl who would never cheat...just like Rogelio thought his wife was. Who the hell is Rogelio, you ask? ...

The 15 Violent Hotspots Around The World
For all of Mitt Romney's talk about us living in " peacetime," the world seems to be growing further unstable each day. Fueled by the global economic crisis, protests, riots, and unrest have broken out all over Northern Africa and the Middle East. This only adds to the already ongoing violence from conflicts that started years ago. The United States is directly involved in four of them. Here are the 15 violent hotspots around the globe: 15. Afghanistan This September will ...

The People Guiding the Obama Agenda
The United States makes a lot about the power of the president. It is true, the President of the United States has quite a bit of reach, but with so much jurisdiction a president is really only as good as his aides and advisers. The diligence and agenda of those advisers quickly becomes federal policy. This is why it is curious that Obama has picked so many bankers, lobbyists, and corporatists to run his government. Take a look at the resumes of these 7 top Obama officials and think about ...

No Trump & Huck? Who Gives a F@#k!
Why would Mike Huckabee, an ordained minister, leave a handsomely salaried gig where he simply preaches to the choir? Why would a tycoon like Donald Trump forsake a seemingly never-ending TV series where he mercilessly enforces his will upon others with just two words? I'm surprised these two potential candidates were even considering the pay cut to become President of the United States. Not wanting to rock their own boats (or yachts, in this case), the former Arkansas Governor and the guy ...

Will Osama Help Obama in 2012?
The successful mission to take out Osama bin Laden is one of the biggest achievements of the Obama Presidency. In the long run, it does not do much to take out the Al-Qaeda leader 10 years into a war we started with a completely different country, but it looks good on your resume. Unfortunately, politically, this could not have come at a worse time. The short-term bump that Obama got was nice, but will amount to little help in 2012. In 2000, the election was run on healthcare, education, ...

Santorum Is Getting Hard On McCain
Rick Santorum just can't stop poking his way into the news. Ever since he made it clear that he wants to be president, he's been butting into embarrassing positions and situations. With his cat-fights with Romney and Gingrich, Santorum is proving that he's eager to thrust himself in the middle of a sticky situation. And just when it seemed that Santorum already had both his hands full, he's gone off and pricked McCain. When it comes to the cockfight known as the Republican ...

Bush Surprisingly Not "Overjoyed" at Bin Laden's Death
For someone whose presidency was defined by the actions masterminded by the world's most wanted man, one would usually expect him to be thrilled along with the rest of the country when that man has finally been brought to justice. Instead of expressing sheer joy over the death of Osama Bin Laden, former President George W. Bush continued the subtle approach he's taken to world events since he left office more than two years ago. While speaking to a crowd of hedge-fund managers in ...

Is Rap a Credible Form of Poetry? The Common vs. Palin Case
Did you hear the one about Sarah Palin throwing a fit over a rapper being invited to perform at the White House's poetry event? Turns out it's totally true. What a crotchety old sack of wheeze. After word spread through the grapevine that the rapper named Common was to be joining Michelle Obama's evening celebrating poetry, both Fox News and one Mrs. Sarah Palin simultaneously got their panties in a bunch. Turns out Common once said something less than nice about President George ...

The Coolest Ways to Smuggle an Immigrant Across the Border
Since the Greeks first smuggled a horseload of illegal immigrants into Troy, people have been doing their best to evade the long arm of the INS (the Immigration and Naturalization Service no longer exists under that name, but it is still the most effective acronym for illegal immigration humor). The following would-be immigrants tried to cross the border and failed, but you have to admit, they did it with style. 1. Disguised as Marines The punishment should be 3 years in the military.

The 7 Top GOP Candidates the GOP Hates
There is no doubt that the Presidential election season has already begun, and with just 18 months to spare. While the Democratic nominee is obvious, the Republican nominee is far from it. Right now, the Republicans are looking at a field of candidates that is exactly the same or worse than last election's cast of lovable losers. This could be the reason why not one candidate has any enthusiasm backing them or could beat Obama in an election before he has even started campaigning and is at ...

Are The Palins Pulling Apart?
As we get ever closer to 2012, Sarah Palin is seeing her popularity among most Americans fade by the day, but there was probably at least one person she thought she could count on for support. The Mama Grizzly was so supportive of her daughter Bristol when she was on Dancing with the Stars that Sarah probably assumed Bristol would return the favor. Instead there are rumors that the eldest daughter of the Palin clan and her mother are at odds over several different political issues, and the ...
