Whether you're too young to remember, or the hyper-speed news cycle has rendered your long-term memory functionally obsolete, you may find it difficult to recall the tumultuous 1990s discussions about broad multimedia censorship. There have been violent video games since the 1970s, but the 90s really drove home the visceral content both figuratively and literally.… Continue reading In a Dark Dark Web (and other stories)

Doesn’t “Ban the Box” Sound Like Slut Shaming?
When you mention "Ban the Box" to anyone, you almost immediately have to launch into a defensive stance. Most logical people would certainly interpret the tragically-named civil rights initiative as some kind of counter-feminist movement at best, or an Islamic Male-Pride March at worst. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on actual data, "Ban the Box" is… Continue reading Doesn’t “Ban the Box” Sound Like Slut Shaming?

Aww Skeet Skeet, Mr. President
In response to an interview that Barack Obama did for New Republic magazine in which he stated that he "always" goes skeet shooting at Camp David, an onslaught of Republicans cried "bullshit". This became the hot-button issue for a whole goddamn day. Nothing else seemed to matter.Has anyone seen the president shoot a gun? Pics… Continue reading Aww Skeet Skeet, Mr. President
Political Cartoon of the Day (The First Debate)
The first Obama/Romney debate last night was pathetic. Romney spewed bullshit and Obama laid back and took it all over himself as if he were in a Brazzers video. #PornPolitics
This picture of Obama is circulating around the internet with varying suspicions that he’s reading this book (by journalist Fareed Zakaria) as a manual for how to destroy America. If you see someone post this with a message of apocalyptic doom, tell that poster to go fuck themselves.(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Post-American_World)
Say what you want about Rick Santorum, the man contains himself with an almost Shakespearean acting skill.
Weinergate: Why do we watch?
Go back in time for a moment. I'll wait. Skip around the 60's and 70's with the ease your time/space transporter allows and visit some people you may recognize; your family, important historical figures. Inquire about the social climate at that time: the unrest over the assassination of a beloved President and his brother, the… Continue reading Weinergate: Why do we watch?
Every generation realizes a new and compelling explanation for the easily explicable. For our parents, it was the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a bright, young, ailing superstar president caught between two worlds. For us, the tragedy of September 11th and the struggle with the notion that perhaps the simplest explanation wasn't the most plausible.… Continue reading Lex Parsimoniae
The SuperDPS Guide to Conspiracy Theories
From the beginning of time, the mentally unstable have turned healthy skepticism and questioning authority into a madhouse of unpredictable, unprovable, and unimaginably nonsensical theories. The eternal unanswerable question is "Why?" Why would the government fake a moon landing, house alien life forms, cover up the paranormal, or orchestrate a terrorist attack? The reason we… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Conspiracy Theories
So I'd like to start out by saying that I think terrorism is pretty cool. Just the idea of blowing something up that you don't like is pretty ballsy and I secretly admire it. As a matter of fact, I feel like the only reason that we hate terrorism so much is simple--we're on the… Continue reading Terrorism Rules
New Year’s Resolutions for a Better 2011
We all want to believe in a better life, a sustainable way of living, and a semi-guided path to follow our dreams without the soul-crushing monotony of a mundane existence. But let's face it: for most of us, these goals are about as likely as Kevin Smith winning a Best Picture Oscar (or, Christ, even… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions for a Better 2011
What the fuck are we doing? Examining the Political Climate of 2010
Lately my brain has been a McDonald's PlayPlace of ambivalence and disgruntled pessimism over our country's current political climate. I can't bring myself to be apathetic because--in all honesty--there aren't many issues that I would consider myself to be "on-the-fence" or "*shrugging my shoulders*" about. (Don't you love how we can use those little action… Continue reading What the fuck are we doing? Examining the Political Climate of 2010
Arizona VS the Evil Brown People
We don't often give Arizona much consideration. We're aware of it--along with its deserts, its Phoenix, and...uh...John McCain? Outsiders have very limited insight into the goings-on in the Grand Canyon State; but recently, its popped into the media spotlight for--you guessed it!--blatant racism! Of course we all know that illegal immigrants are only here to… Continue reading Arizona VS the Evil Brown People
The SuperDPS Guide to Prohibition
Hopefully, we've all had a decent-enough education to know that at one point in American History, the consumption and sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited by the United States government. Fortunately, this occurred at a time in History when our government could learn from their mistakes and push "we fucked up" initiatives after stupid decisions… Continue reading The SuperDPS Guide to Prohibition
Obama VS Bush: Let the Conspiracy Begin
I fucking hate it when assholes say, "9/11 was an inside job." It takes a special brand of cunt to blindly blame the George Bush for the deaths of thousands of people. There are thousands of deaths that you can blame on Bush...so why grasp at straws? The point is that whether or not 9/11… Continue reading Obama VS Bush: Let the Conspiracy Begin
Climate Change Clusterfuck
So it turns out we were wrong again. Another era of being caught up in sensationalism and "end of the world" hysteria has come upon us. But where do we stand now? Has everything that we've come to believe about a supposed Global Warming been complete horse shit? The short answer is "yes," with an… Continue reading Climate Change Clusterfuck
Greetings from Gangland, Mexico!
Back in March of 2009, President Obama put plans in motion to shift 500 federal agents to the Mexican border, directing $200 Million in military monies to combat the uncontrollable--and arguably unimaginable--amount of violence directly related to drug trafficking. Their primary concern was to keep the metaphorical Mexican sewage from seeping across the fences. On March… Continue reading Greetings from Gangland, Mexico!
ORLY?!: Taitz, Liddy and the Abortion of Birthers
A while back, in April, I covered an archaic and objectively retarded Conservative movement idiotically dubbed "Teabagging." Of course, this term was despised by the actual "Teabaggers" who wished to their non-existent gods that the fine people of FOX NEWS hadn't permanently cemented their spot in history with a title associated with dunking one's scrotum… Continue reading ORLY?!: Taitz, Liddy and the Abortion of Birthers
Why I Hate Canada and Want to Go Home!
Recently, I took a trip to Canada (of all fucking places); Ottawa to be specific. Naturally, I had no idea what was actually in Ottawa except for a few examples of gorgeous Gothic architecture that I could see any time I want in America through something called Google. So why does anyone travel anywhere? What… Continue reading Why I Hate Canada and Want to Go Home!
Trailers of the Week: Memorial Day Edition
Before you start to fling about your rampant accusations, let me just say--in my defense--that I am inflicted with the most horribly debilitating of physical and psychological diseases. No, it's not Swine Flu. It's Summer Laziness. The symptoms of which are chronic procrastination, writer's block, and an ever-increasing ass-groove in what had once been a… Continue reading Trailers of the Week: Memorial Day Edition
An Open Letter to the Gay Community
Dear Sirs, Madams, and those elusive Sir/Madams, While I must admit that a majority of my knowledge about Gay Issues comes from movies (no, not those kind of movies) and various friends, associates, and those I've met throughout my scholastic and professional career. I'm not gay, nor have I ever had a homosexual experience...not that… Continue reading An Open Letter to the Gay Community
Teabagging, as I Understand It
Rapidly sweeping the country like some sort of limbless terrapin is a form of non-violent protest called "Teabagging." Now, I know what you're thinking, but the invaluable mainstream media has assured me that this has absolutely nothing to do with the practice of delicately dunking one's own Chicken McNuggets into the unsuspecting gaping maw of a sleeping companion. Far from… Continue reading Teabagging, as I Understand It
The Six Recession-Proof Ways to Get Cities Out of Debt
An overwhelming amount of us live in super-sized, congested, polluted cities. I happen to live in Philadelphia, and in addition to the hazards of our everyday lives, we are dealing with a staggering and crippling economic "depression." Because of this, we have cutbacks running wild, elevated panic in the marketplace, and nothing on which to… Continue reading The Six Recession-Proof Ways to Get Cities Out of Debt
In a recent article, I mentioned the ridiculous and intellectually offensive item in the news regarding a certain political cartoon. I know you're all sick of seeing it, but here it is: I don't know why, but I am extremely frightened by the outrage that this cartoon has caused. Actually, that's a lie. I know… Continue reading Chimpanzee That!
50 Things on the Internet You DON’T Need to See!

In this article I will pluck 50(that's right) from things on this list and describle them The first 30 will be the WORST, hopefully saving you the trouble of wasting as much of… Continue reading 50 Things on the Internet You DON’T Need to See!
A Warm Recession
Judging by the epidemic of lay-offs, stock market plunges, and clusterfuck pissing competitions throughout the Legislative Branch, our country seems to be (for lack of a better phrase) bucked-fackwards. While this financial game of Jenga plays out, we can do nothing but scream from the comfort of our own homes tents cardboard kingdoms for our elected officials… Continue reading A Warm Recession
The Feeling You’re Feeling
I currently have this strange sensation inside the darkness that is my tummy. It's not angry...it's not even hungry. I think it may be partially hungry, but not wholly. The abstract emptiness that I'm feeling may be somewhat caused by the abundance of lukewarm Coca Cola I've been drinking. Perhaps my inner sanctum is trying to… Continue reading The Feeling You’re Feeling
