Bill Maher on the myth of the "lesser of two evils" which tends to turn off liberal voters, especially those who were butthurt that Bernie did not get the nomination, and instead stayed home instead of voting for the Democratic nominee. We all have reaped what they sowed, and Bill has something to say about it...

Maybe you've said it? Maybe you've had a friend say it? "ALL lives matter!"

It's a great way to prove a point, but are you really proving a point, or are you merely trying to silence someone or something that makes you feel uncomfortable?

This isn't the first time we've run into this...

Here's my take on the rebel flag controversy... I think people on both sides of the issue have some valid points, BUT the points are not equal in terms of pros/cons.

My first impression when I heard news that there was talk to outlaw the flag was, "Great, this will come in handy the next time someone kills nine people with a rebel flag. :/

With the rampant rages in the social media circles over everything from living wages to police brutality, there's a growing air of discontent brewing in American culture.

Unfortunately, it's always been there.

And it reminds of what John and Yoko said almost half a century ago, "War is over (if you want it)."

Those simple words hold such power and meaning, and it seems people today still don't understand what they meant.

I was prompted to use my horrible Photoshop skills to expand their message and inject a new meme into the social landscape... feel free to share....

I'm not one to jump on the meme bandwagon, but I'd like to see this idea propagate. When it all comes down to it, ISIS/ISIL is not a threat to America any more than the mythological "WMDs" Saddam Hussein supposedly had. Let's make sure our fellow Americans are reminded of the mistakes of the past so we're not doomed to repeat them.

If you have a cool graphic that also illustrates this point, let us know and we'll feature it here.

I can't help but think... why do gun nuts always choose to "exercise their 2A rights" in cozy, whitebread, surburban establishments like Starbucks, Home Depot and Chipotle?

Edward Snowden Interviewed By German TV

[Activists]
This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.

In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.
