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

In Sarah Palin World — by which I mean not the state of Alaska but a state of mind — everything can be explained with a jab at the liberal media and a few references to Jesus. 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.

Dream Or Nightmare: App Encourages Partisan Grocery Purchases

“Spend How You Believe"

It’s no secret that major corporations don’t operate in a vacuum, and that a hefty chunk of their money could easily be funding your favorite (or least favorite) politicians. Companies behind popular food and household products are no exception to this. In a world with way more behind-the-scenes rigging going on than any of us would like to believe, I’m a big proponent of knowing exactly where our hard-earned money is going. All that said, is it really necessary to only buy foods produced by companies who support our favorite political party? I’m not totally sure. Keep reading »
