past 48 hours, opinions have formed on each side of the aisle
about the causes for the unthinkable massacre at a town
hall event hosted by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on Saturday.
Some more reasoned thinkers have looked at the shooter’s
mental history and YouTube ramblings for clues. Others
are rightfully questioning how a mentally ill man was able to
legally purchase the murder weapon in the first place. But
some illogical and cruel attention-seakers are still looking to pin
the events on a vague reference to Tea Party rhetoric and Sarah
Palin directly. What saddened me the most were some of the
opinions I saw in the immediate wake of the chilling events
that occurred in the Tucson supermarket. I was shocked
by a lot of the blog posts and tweets that were being sent to me in
the first few hours of the tragedy. Logic and reason mostly win out
as time passes, however to see the liberal scapegoating before my
eyes was a sad display of the continued evil and divisive
immaturity that remains a force for the Far Left of this

The USS Cole was attacked in the Yemeni Port of Aden, on October 12, 2000. 17 sailors died and 39 more were injured in the suicide attack. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack and Jamal al-Badawi was detained just days later. His confession to recruiting the other bombers led to several arrests including Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. Since then al-Badawi has escaped from Yemeni prisons twice along with others convicted for the Cole bombing. He last surrendered to Yemeni authorities as part of an agreement with al-Qaeda militants, although he was released in return for a pledge not to engage in any violent or al-Qaeda related activity. Ten years later none of the defendants convicted in Yemen of the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole remain in prison.

Recently I’ve been hearing this phrase a lot; the world is upside down. People are slowly catching on to the fact that things are un-like how they used to be. Political polarization mixed with outlandish irrationalities and head-shaking ignorance is becoming common place. But unfortunately many of these stories, which defy sound logic or objectivity, simply fall through the cracks of our 24/7 news cycle. In an attempt to document the patently outrageous, I have decided to start an ongoing series called, The United States of Absurdity. We will be documenting stories that we hope only represent the fringe of a fringe with sources and very short commentary. And as our upside down world slowly renders The Onion obsolete, at least they won’t be able to say that we’re all crazy. Let’s begin.
How bored are “Human Rights” groups in America? (more…)

In wake of the recent Israeli/Gaza debacle one common theme is emerging; the world really hates Jews. You would think such a profound lack of moral clarity would be highly alarming to the rational masses. But these days, brainwashed Muslims, uninterested Americans, and welfare loving Europeans have immediately trounced on the unjust opportunity to bash, discredit and rant against the only bastion of freedom in an un-free world. Israel.
The facts of this story are very simple. But like the Arizona Illegal Immigration debate, getting the facts to the users has proven too much to handle for our media, the UN, and Jew hating Muslims worldwide. Let me give you the background on recent events occurring in the middle-eastern area called the Gaza Strip. (more…)

I started watching his show the O’Reilly Factor about 8 years ago. At the time I was looking for answers to help justify my position politically while constantly being bombarded with a liberal outlook from my teachers at school. I remember having daily debates on whether we should even retaliate against Al Qaeda. What I found listening to Bill’s Radio Factor and watching his TV shows was a bold and independent thinker taking on all the toughest issues. I was drawn to his level-headed conclusions and appreciated how he always had in mind the best interest of the “folks”. (more…)
