Fox Anchor: Young Women Serving On Juries Is A Bad Idea Because They “Don’t Get It”

"Excuse Them So They Can Go Back On Tinder Or Match.com"

Kimberly Guilfoyle and her co-hosts on “The Five” decided on Tuesday’s edition of the show that young women are just too out of it to be functional members of society. They argued that most people become conservatives as they get older, and that young women start as liberals until they marry and gain enough “life experience” to do a political 180 (the party starts at around the 1:45 mark in the video). They claimed, with completely straight faces, that single women tend to lean to the left because they believe they “need the government to take care of them.” So, I guess they think that women aren’t capable of functioning without a husband to pay for their shit or facilitate their lives. Then if there’s no man to assist them, we’re supposed to presume that these “helpless” women want their government to take care of them in a dude’s place? I mean, considering the U.S. government’s track record as of late (and really, since the beginning of history) no sane person, especially a sane woman, would ever actively plan on Congress or the Prez coming to save them. But alas, this was only the beginning of Guilfoyle’s ramble. Keep reading »

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett’s Staffers Allegedly Circulated Pornographic Emails

Tom Corbett

Last week, the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office released a slew of sexually explicit emails, pictures and videos that had been discovered in email exchanges between eight staffers of Republican Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett. The imagery was allegedly circulated when Corbett still served as the state’s attorney general, a position he left in January 2011 when he was elected governor. Corbett, who is currently running for re-election, claims he had no knowledge of the emails at the time and that while he was told about “inappropriate” emails in May, he hasn’t seen the imagery in question. Attorney general Kathleen Kane, whose team made the discovery, initially refused to share the explicit emails with the public but eventually allowed a select few journalists to view the footage in the company of armed agents.

Sarah Palin Is So Proud That Bristol Palin Allegedly Punched Some Guy "Repeatedly" At A Party

And after two weeks of silence regarding her family’s participation in a bloody brawl at a snowmobile party in Anchorage, Sarah Palin did not disappoint.

On Friday, the former governor of Alaska posted a message on her Facebook page praising her daughter Bristol as a “straight shooter” who defended the family during the brawl  — which is not mentioned directly, but obviously being alluded to with this post. Keep reading »

The Soapbox: Why I Cannot Be Friends With People Who Don’t Share My Politics

The Soapbox: Why I Cannot Be Friends With People Who Don't Share My Politics

Some years ago, a young man that I was casually dating invited me to a birthday party with some of his friends who all moved to New York City, from Florida, to go to college. It was a scenario I had long grown accustomed to: I was the only Black girl amongst a group of non-minority people, laughing, drinking and talking.

Then this statement came out of nowhere and immediately wiped the smile from my face: “The best way to keep America safe is to just deport all of the Muslims,” a young White boy said in between sips of a beer.

It pierced my ears, momentarily paralyzing me. My eyes darted towards my friend to gauge his reaction to the words that pierced the air like an arrow launched from a bow, striking me in my chest. He seemed completely unmoved.

“Well, we don’t have to get rid of all of them, just the terrorists really,” he responded plainly.

We never spoke after that day. Keep reading »
