Self-Inflicted Comebacks are the Pinnacle of Humanity

Why True Sports Fans Will Always Root for the Self-Inflicted Comeback At its peak, more than 12 percent of America was watching The Masters.

Quoting is Simple, But Lying Gets More Clicks

Quoting Someone in 2019 is Very Easy, So Why Do People Still Get it Wrong?

Bibi Gets Late Push from Beto

Beto O'Rourke's Latest Remarks Might Push Bibi Across the Finish Line For all of the talk and furor over Russia possibly meddling in the United States' 2016 Presidential election, the U.S. has no problem when it comes to sticking its nose into other countries' processes, none more so than when it comes to Israel.

The Pope is a Dope on Jerusalem

The Pontiff Pontificates About Jerusalem, Ignores Reality This might anger some people. A Jewish guy taking a shot at Pope Francis, the leader of the Roman Catholic Church.
