Climate Change

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Obama recently said that climate change was a one of the biggest threats to our national security. Naturally, republicans jumped on that and screamed, "what about ISIS?" Well, if the planet is under water I don't think anyone will be worrying about terrorist attacks.

Big Bankers

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The banks will pay billions in fines for rigging foreign markets but nobody will go to jail. They were not jailed for assorted schemes that led to the 2008 financial crisis either. They just keep living their lives and collecting bonuses.

Profiling

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It's interesting how the police and the media didn't call the Texas biker gangs "thugs" or describe their brawl as a "riot" even though far more people died there than in Ferguson and Baltimore combined. I guess there are different standards when the offenders are white.
