The American Dream Lives On

If there is a concept nearly every liberal can agree on, it’s that the American Dream is dead. Some will even go as far as to claim that it never existed to begin with.

Rand Paul Lists His Festivus Grievances

It would be difficult to come up with a sitcom that has as profound an effect on pop culture as Seinfeld.

Liberals Put Atheism Before Starving Children

In the United States of 2014, feelings matter more than facts. And since then liberal lawyers who make up the ACLU “feel” that promoting secular atheism is more important than seeing starving children get some much-needed food, it’s only natural that they would serve up a Christmastime warning to a middle school that dared to associate themselves with a charity ...
