It seems for every event, there is a questioning of the facts presented in the case. For every piece of legislation, there is an outlandish suggestion of ulterior motives. Yet for the IRS scandal, everyone seems to more-or-less in line with the facts with little question. But, dear readers, what if conspiracy theories truly abounded?

I have enough conservative friends (and some liberal ones) who have been praising Rand Paul's filibuster while condemning Eric Holder and Barack Obama. But I started to ask, what is REALLY the difference between Holder and Paul? When I actually started to get beyond the hype (it's been a few years since the last ACTUAL filibuster), I looked at what each man actually said.

From what I can tell. It's not much different. So join me below for a little game of Who Said It? Rand Paul or Eric Holder.

I don't know why I searched for "Obama" today on Facebook. I think I wanted to see how many likes he had compared to Romney, but what I found was interesting.

The Bible: The New GOP Edition (Part I)

by Poingly

I had a friend post on Facebook this morning about how Christians need to leave the Democratic party, that we can't separate religion and politics, etc. Having read large portions of the Bible, I can safely say that it actually aligns more closely with the Democrats instead of the Republicans. But lo-and-behold, I was actually reading the WRONG Bible, printed by the liberal Bible-printing media. It had apparently been translated with a left-wing bias.

Fret not, friends! I have recently uncovered the PROPER translation of the Bible, and I will be posting various parts for all of you! Hopefully, this clears things up.

Today's exerpt is Luke 10:28-37.

Thank you, NYPD

by Poingly

Usually when someone says the word "bank robbery" you think of a person stealing money from the bank. I'm sure when the police got my call, they didn't expect that the crime in question was a bank stealing money from a person.

It seems a lot of people were up in arms over Rosen's comments today. Not exactly for what she said, but for the implicit implications that stay-at-home mom isn't a real job. I can understand the outrage, and I can understand Rosen's apology. However, I am still waiting for Ann Romney's apology for the implicit implications of her own statements.

"They should die"

by Poingly

"They should die." The words haunt me to this day. I was discussing with a friend from high school about health care, government, and so on. Through the years I have become very liberal, and he has turned quite conservative. I cannot remember the exact question I asked. It was something along the lines of what happens when a person doesn't save enough for retirement or can't afford health care. He responded with three simple words: "They should die."

My workplace is pretty left-wing. I actually will take a conservative devil's advocate position around the water cooler just to make sure a debate is thorough. We were talking about the debt ceiling debate, and one of my co-workers just goes on how dysfunctional and broken government is and how it can't work. This is where I had to argue from my heart.

Hitting Donald Trump in his wallet

by Poingly

Does anyone ever shop at Macys? I know I do! Or at least I used to! Today upon entering the store I discovered Donald Trump ties and shirts along with a giant picture of the racist birther himself. I found this highly inappropriate and told the cashier so. She agreed with me. I called them up (800-264-0069, by the way--the number is rather difficult to find), and aired my complaints. They said that if enough people complained they would do something about it, so I am going to call on folks to do something about it.

A spooky way to help GOTV

by Poingly

I always thought it was sort of annoying when political campaigners would come to my door growing up (now that I live in an apartment in the most Democratic district in the country, this rarely happens anymore). It just seemed sort of rude and invasive. But what if there's a way to get the people to come to you? Well, you're lucky that today is just such a day: Halloween!
