What Michigan Means For Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders won the Michigan primary — 50 percent to Hillary’s 48 percent. This isn’t something huge, mind you. The delegate count is still far and few in between, with Sanders needing landslide victories in future states to stay afloat. Not a single poll, however, has given Sanders any chance of victory in Michigan. The closest had Clinton leading by five percentage points, but the average poll had her leading 20+. Sanders’s win, as said by FiveThirtyEight (who predicted a less than one percent chance for Sanders to win Michigan), is the greatest polling upset in modern political history.

The Problem With Being Remembered

At birth, there is an introduction. A heavenly beacon of light to start it all. The world opens, and we begin to live. It all seems so wonderful, magical, and sensible. The first few chapters are great, and we all cling onto our chairs as we witness the stages of life develop right before our very eyes. In the middle, we learn. We turn into madmen – cynical to life’s wonders. I call this character development. At death, the story ends. Some end abruptly, others with a bang that allow them to stand out against countless other stories.

On the Death of Nancy Reagan

Although it would take a full day to list the Reagan Administration’s war crimes (that list containing scandals such as the Iran Contra), it would be impossible to claim that her years in the political limelight alongside her husband meant nothing. It’s sad that her name goes alongside the terrible “prayer” tweets with absolutely no meaning that the GOP candidates send out every time anything happens, but the Reagan name will always live on throughout history. Through her Just Say No campaign and all the other influential roles she played in the 40th President’s administration, Nancy Reagan will go down in history as one of the most effective First Ladies in American History.

Presentation: Effects of The Great War on America

This presentation, given 3/1/16 and 3/2/16, is on the effects of the Great War on America. The slideshow was basically used as something to have on the screen while I talked for a solid eighty minutes. A few people asked me to put it up on Google classroom. I don’t know what Google classroom is. It’s on my site now, are you happy?

Here's the Advertisement That Made John Kasich Uncomfortable

When it comes to politics, candidates have to find methods to connect with voters. In the past sixty years, campaign advertisements have relatively stayed the same. When it comes to modern records, it’s incredibly easy to commit negative mudslinging against rival career politicians. John Kasich, the so-called moderate in this race, is no different.

Brain Dead: Ben Carson Drops

Ben Carson, the retired neurosurgeon who started up his campaign on May 3rd, 2015, has finally dropped out of the race. At least, unofficially. Maybe in spirit, but not in title. Carson refused to actually say the words “suspending my campaign”, like so many members of the political clown car have stated before him. He, like he’s done his entire campaign, beaten around actual substance and created a word salad of nonintellectual psychobabble. Here’s his official statement…

Super Tuesday Results

Super Tuesday is mostly composed of conservative-based states. Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia all have a Republican foundation, even on the moderate Democratic side. They also outweigh the benefits given off by more liberal and progressive states, such as Colorado, Minnesota, and especially Vermont. Let me say this right now: Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee. But…despite popular claims, we could see changes in the Democratic primaries if things go the right way for Bernie Sanders.

Ancient Aliens: Historical Fraud

Ancient Aliens is NOT a documentary. It is NOT a non-fiction program on a trustworthy and respected non-fiction channel. It’s throwing all respect, all caution for proper programming and research for legitimate claims, through the window. It should be mocked. It should be ignored. It should be cancelled. This April is the 6th year anniversary of the pilot episode, we’re on over one hundred episodes of complete and utter historical and scientific inaccuracy.
