Entire Jon Stewart Segment on The O’Reilly Factor UNEDITED [VIDEO]

This is a bit long, but it’s absolutely amazing.

Jon Stewart destroys O’Reilly and FOX NEWS. I apologize for the advertisement, and O’Reilly, but if it weren’t for that, they wouldn’t have this available.

O’Reilly really embarrasses himself here, on several occasions, but doesn’t seem to realize it at all (or maybe he just doesn’t care because he assumes no one will ever see the unedited version).

what do you think?

I’ve decided something

I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s really not enough entertaining content (to me, anyway) in the realm of “politics” alone for me to keep up a strong pace here, and as the name of this blog indicates, what I’m concerned about is America, not beaurocracy.

I’m realizing that one of the main problems with politics is that it is entrenched in religion. Despite the claim of full separation, your church affects your chances of being elected head of state.

It didn’t always used to be that way. Abraham Lincoln didn’t go to church.

I think I must bring in what I believe to be the essential hidden truths of human spirituality. I understand the ideas I am going to post may seem ridiculous or scary at first, but they are not my ideas. They belong to many intelligent scholars. I just think, like Christians, that if you open your heart to the truth, you will be set free. Only, the truths I present will be very realistic and open to rational debate (read: very scary to some).

Some of these truths have been reported and confirmed for decades, but have remained hidden due to being condemned by the church (read: crushed by a powerful institution), or baselessly rejected (read: cowardly slandered by career-minded academics and public figures).

It’s weird to me that there are still such important truths out there that remain oppressed and hidden due to taboo, even with the internet! So I will take it upon myself to join those who have been bravely trying to shake off the shroud of fear, and bring about a new day of honest reflection.

I hope you like it.

This is what happens when you disregard the rights and lives of people around the world.



Nobody likes you.

I think this pretty much sums it up.

Congratulations, Barack.

Let’s hope he’s right.
