Please get vaccinated

Thursday, August 19th, 2021

This little corner of the internet has been dormant for quite some time. Since the last time we’ve posted, America elected a narcissistic, sexist, xenophobic, racist, shuckster of a president in Donald J. Trump (and thankfully voted him out of office four years later). Perhaps it is for the best that we weren’t posting during […]

Ferguson, Grand Juries and Justice

Friday, November 28th, 2014

It would be fair to say there’s been too much media attention surrounding what’s been going on in Ferguson, Missouri. No one outside of the state probably even heard of the St. Louis neighbor before 2014. But when Officer Darren Wilson shot Michael Brown on Aug. 9, 2014, that all changed. Wilson was white, Brown […]

Koster gets caught with hand in cookie jar

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

Photo via Wikicommons, CCL Attorney Generals rarely make headlines. Many people probably don’t even know what their Attorney General does at either the state or federal levels. But after a New York Times article came out just a couple weeks ago, Missouri voters definitely know what an Attorney General isn’t supposed to do. Chris Koster […]

Why Democrats got rocked in the 2014 Midterms

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Liberals can be cute about it and say that they won some elections they thought they might lose. They can rationalize it and say that the losses weren’t as bad as they could have been, or that they did better than they thought they were going to. If they’re really desperate, you might hear them […]

Your vote counts: Cast your ballot this Tuesday

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

PoliticalProgresives is well aware we’re preaching to the choir when it comes to telling people to vote. Chances are if you’re reading an obscure political blog, you’re already planning to cast a ballot next Tuesday. But maybe you’re living with people who aren’t planning on exercising their constitutional right to vote. Maybe you know people […]

Fox News: Young women belong on Tinder, not in voting booth

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

When our writer waddles his way over to the local gym, he inevitably ends up being stuck on the treadmill that’s right in front of the TV that has Fox News on it. Some days, he’s mercifully lucky and the closed captioning isn’t working so he doesn’t know what’s being said. This week, he was […]

Ben Affleck and Nicholas Kristof set the record straight on Islam

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

You’ve probably heard Ben Affleck is in the news for something other than Batman related things, and that’s probably for the best. But if you haven’t seen the video of the interview, you might not have realized that there were more people in the discussion than just Affleck and Bill Maher, whose show all the […]

Scalia poo-poos seperation of church and state

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Supreme court justices often make the news for cases that they rule on. It seems like every year, there’s at least one high profile case that the court has to rule on. This year was no exception (See: Hobby Lobby). But this week, a supreme court justice made news for a different reason. Justice Antonin […]

Why the Latte Salute isn’t a big deal

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

For the first time in what seems like months, the biggest news story was not related to the NFL. For the first time in what seems like years, it wasn’t about ISIS, Ebola or Ferguson. This seems like cause for celebration at first glance. Did something good finally happen to break us away from the […]

Why it’s ok (for now) Hillary hasn’t officially decided to run

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

Two of the more common questions our writer gets asked are “Will Hillary run for president,” or “Why hasn’t Hillary declared she’s running yet?” Let’s answer that first question right away: we fully anticipate that Ms. Clinton will run in 2016. If she didn’t, it would be the biggest political shock since Eric Cantor lost […]
