Ongoing Series: When the Left and Right got it horribly wrong.

These days it's hard to remain objective. When you're inundated with news on all sides, it feels nice and cozy just burrowing yourself deeper in your echo chamber. Once there, it gets easier and easier just to go with what confirms your beliefs. But alas, we all must remain vigilant in the face of the onslaught of agenda pushers and outright falsehoods that litter our news feeds, especially when it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

With that said, here is the first entry in my ongoing series where the left and right got it horribly wrong.

THE RIGHT
Claim: The IRS is targeting conservative groups.
Conclusion: Wrong

Back in 2013 reports surfaced of an alleged targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. In an era where Obama and the Democrats reigned supreme, this was a godsend to the Republican establishment. The claims, as many were convinced, were that while most non-profits could obtain tax exempt status with relative ease, those with a clear conservative bent were being t…

Now I have a Machine Gun. HO-HO-HO

In certain circles, Die Hard is celebrated not as the perennial action flick we all know and love, but as a cherished Christmas tradition. Many argue its intentional choice of setting during the Christmas season elevates the film beyond its action tropes. But could this be? In this light, a once evergreen message of violence and gore in the face of villainy would becomes a heart-warming tale of a man reuniting with his family for the holidays.

"But that isn't the point of Die Hard," you say.

"Shut up this is my article," I say.

The push to include Die Hard in the pantheon of Christmas classics isn't without controversy. The type of individual arguing so strongly for its holiday inclusion is the same person who points out semantic pedantry at the expense of everyone else's fun. See below.


In preparation for this magnum opus of an article I found these types littered across the vast wastes of the interwebs.

Halloween Horror Film Retrospective: It Follows

In 2014, a remarkably original horror film came out in the way of It Follows.

The plot was simple.

A near unstoppable, malevolent "ghost" is following you incessantly. Not running, or flying, just walking. It is always somewhere coming for you, but at a near leisurely, albeit deliberate, stroll. The kicker, however, was that if you were able to get laid, you would then pass this coital phantasm on to that person.

As a defense against this walking hard on, you too could run, or drive, or even fly across the globe to get away from it, but the brilliant conceit was that it was always coming. It was only a matter of time. And if it caught you, you were dead. And not only would you be dead, but it would then begin following the person who passed it on to you. It would continue down that line until it hit the original adulterer.


That conceit, the tone and cinematography of the film, and its general sense of uneasiness made it at the very least an exciting new foray in the horror g…

Anatomy of a Vegan

If you've ever known a person in the mafia, a gangbanger, or a convicted serial killer, you've effectively met a vegan. Their cold, heartless demeanor, masked behind an "animal loving" facade is right at home with Jeffrey Dahmer and his ilk.

What's most alarming about vegans is their unbridled narcissism. Vegans believe their actions and diet are in some way benefiting animals and the world. It's a God Complex, nay a Messiah Complex, but it saves nothing and benefits no one.

In looking into the psychology of vegans, we find these constants.

Their mother never loved them. Not much to add to this one. While mother complexes cause a myriad of psychological issues, from psychopathy to irritable bowel syndrome, veganism seems to always come as a side effect.They browbeat and shame those that disagree with them.Trying to argue the merits of their lifestyle with a vegan is like getting a dog to stop licking its butthole. Even though it's wrong, it feels so good t…

How do you sleep at night, VEGANS?

If you've ever met a vegan, it's a small miracle you're even reading this now after having been bludgeoned within an inch of your life by all the facts they espouse.

The truth, however, is that despite what Big Vegan would have you believe, their industry is one flush with ill-begotten cash and bogged in a trail of blood so thick you'd think you were in the Red Sea. 
Each year, vegan food harvested by any means kills millions upon millions of animals. So much so, that the very moral and ethical basis for such a lifestyle is all but completely negated.
Now do I believe animals should be treated justly? Without question. I want any and all of our livestock to be well-cared for, nay pampered, before their meeting with the Almighty. But what I will not concede is that a lifestyle that through its enactment kills scores and scores of small rodents, snakes, and all manner of God's creatures by way of combine harvesters tearing through vegan fields, is better than my own …
