Earlier this week, America celebrated Women's Equality Day, a holiday designated by U.S. Congress in 1971 at the behest of a Democrat Congresswoman from the state of New York. Naturally, those who like to perpetuate the myth that women have it terribly rough in these United States were out in full force - most notably, the White House.Read more
Desperate times call for desperate measures, I guess.
We've all seen it before... campaign ads that twist and distort facts. Scare tactics and character assassinations fly through political winds like, well, a bad flu virus?
Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor is fighting for his political life. And, in what appears to be a desperate attempt to knock down his Republican opponent, Tom Cotton, Pryor’s campaign just released an ad that might top all hyperbolic ads...Read more
This week, Scarlet Johansson, who is best known for her roles in the Horse Whisperer (1998) and Lost in Translation (2003), has decided, in light of the recent Supreme Court ruling on birth control, to voice her displeasure with the ruling by releasing a t-shirt that she designed. She designed the t-shirt for Planned Parenthood Action, the political arm of Planned Parenthood, for the upcoming November mid-term elections.
Johansson's shirts are bright pink with a retro design and scream "Hey, Politicians! The 1950's called....They want their sexism back".

Democrat congressional candidate for Virginia's 10th Congressional District, John Foust, slammed his opponent, Republican Barbara Comstock, for never having a "real job". Earlier this week at a campaign stop for his aptly named Women's Priorities Tour in Leesburg, Virginia, he said that Comstock's job creating priorities were, in her mind, "giving tax benefits to special interests and the super wealthy. I don’t think she’s even had a real job.”
While the accusation is grossly untrue, even in the technical sense, his accusations went far beyond the length of Comstock's resume.Read more
