The Epi-Pen Price Hike Shows America’s Healthcare System Is Broken

The Epi-Pen Price Hike Shows America’s Healthcare System Is Broken

Mylan Pharmaceuticals is the most hated thing on the internet this week not named Trump. The drug pusher drew the media’s wrath after they rose the price of EpiPens to over $300 – a 400% increase in just four years. Even the height of Trump’s wall isn’t growing as fast as the cost of Epi-Pens. But while people are understandably upset that a company is price gouging sick kids, even more jarring was the way the price hike was defended: Mylan’s defenders note that the $609 list price of EpiPen may get all…

France Was Right To Ban The Burkini

France Was Right To Ban The Burkini

A number of French beach communities have decided to ban the “burkini”, a swimsuit designed for Muslim women that covers their entire bodies like the wrapper around a fast food hamburger. While there is an argument that this ban denies certain citizens of their right to religious expression, those arguments forget that France is a place for topless beaches full of cigarette smoking hotties with exquisite breasts. Allowing people to run around in burkinis would fundamentally change western culture. Musicians would have to sing songs that go, “it was an itsy bitsy teenie…

Kamau Bell’s Letter To Michael Phelps Shows The Left’s Racism

Kamau Bell’s Letter To Michael Phelps Shows The Left’s Racism

When it comes to ridiculous Olympics statements, it is clear that CNN host W. Kamau Bell takes the gold. The comedian published an open letter asking Michael Phelps to step down as America’s Olympic flag bearer in order to let Ibtihaj Muhammad, a Muslim-American fencer who competes wearing a hijab, carry the American flag. Bell said that Phelps already had enough glory and didn’t need another honor. Then he further justified asking Phelps to step down by invoking Donald Trump – because how could any self-respecting liberal opine on the Olympics without bringing up…

GOP Leaders Backing Hillary Instead Of Gary Johnson Shows The System Is Rigged

GOP Leaders Backing Hillary Instead Of Gary Johnson Shows The System Is Rigged

A growing number of Republicans are endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. Former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman said she was with Hillary, as did top strategists for Jeb(!) Bush and Chris Christie. In addition, a former Minnesotan Republican senator said he’d cast a vote for Hillary if it decided the election. And on Thursday, the first sitting Republican congressman, Richard Hanna, announced that he would vote for Hillary in the 2016 election. It’s hard to blame Republicans for deserting their candidate. Trump, who claimed he would be the most presidential candidate since Lincoln,…

It’s Always The Most Important Election Ever, and the GOP Nominee is Always Dangerous

It’s Always The Most Important Election Ever, and the GOP Nominee is Always Dangerous

If you listen to the news, it goes without saying that the upcoming November election is the most important decision in America’s history (though the Washington Post, Bloomberg, and the Nation have still felt the need to say it). On top of that, The New Yorker and Washington Post have boldly warned that a Trump presidency is a dangerous and unique threat to democracy. And while it’s true that Donald Trump is often times an idiot who insults people for no reason, it’s also important to note that this hysteria around the election and the GOP…

Who You Gonna Call? The Speech Police

Who You Gonna Call? The Speech Police

Twitter has banned conservative voice Milo Yiannopoulos this week after a blow up he had with Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones. Jones, who had starred in the surprisingly controversial remake, had been complaining about the racist and offensive harassment she was receiving on twitter, which led to Milo engaging her and ultimately got him kicked off the social media platform. But while many of the tweets targeted at Jones were vile and way over line, none of them actually came from Milo. In fact, if you look at Leslie Jones’s interactions with the gay conservative…

What Each Candidate Has In Common With “Pokemon Go”

What Each Candidate Has In Common With “Pokemon Go”

Pokemon Go has taken America by nerd-storm. The app, in which users walk around the real world trying to get to specified spots in order to catch virtual creatures, has led to unexpected-exercise for millions of millenials. Due to their inexperience with areas of the earth that aren’t their living room, Whole Foods, or artisanal macaroon shops, these pretend “Pokemon trainers” have been shot at, crashed cars, and fallen off of cliffs as they’ve ventured into the real world for the first time in decades. Pokemon Go has become so successful that Hillary Clinton even…

The FBI Made The Right Decision To Call Hillary A Criminal, But Not Charge Her As One

The FBI Made The Right Decision To Call Hillary A Criminal, But Not Charge Her As One

The FBI came under both praise and criticism after it recommended no charges be filed against Hillary Clinton for her email scandal. Director James Comey stated during his press conference that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case” (though that obviously doesn’t rule out “badass” Freddie Gray prosecutor Marilyn Mosby who loves charging people without evidence). Comey had authority to bring charges against Hillary because the attorney general had to recuse herself after a suspicious meeting with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix airport tarmac. If anyone still believes Democrats are the party of the…

The Military Made a Good Business Decision Allowing Transgenders in the Military

The Military Made a Good Business Decision Allowing Transgenders in the Military

For the first time ever, transgender people are allowed to serve in the military. While many on the left are celebrating the move to lift the ban on transgender troops as a step towards equality, Republicans are criticizing the move as “prioritizing politics over policy.” But those Republicans are missing the mark. Politics cannot be separated from policy so long as the military is funded by politicians who are elected by the people. So long as we live in a democracy, politics must be intertwined with military policy. The ban on transgender people had…

The Freddie Gray Verdicts Show The Danger When The Left Has Outrage, But Not Answers

The Freddie Gray Verdicts Show The Danger When The Left Has Outrage, But Not Answers

If you were looking to showcase the dangers of social justice warrior group think, the police trials related to Freddie Gray would be a great place to start. For those who don’t remember the controversy, Freddie Gray was a 25 year old Baltimore man with some twenty drug and criminal charges against him, five of which were still pending at the time of his death. Gray was arrested by the Baltimore police, and a week later he died of spinal cord injuries. Baltimore then decided to stick it to the evil white…
