Top 5 Reasons To Ditch Liberal Starbucks For Dunkin’!

In case you live under a rock and missed the big news this week… Starbucks has decided to start a #RaceTogether campaign (translation: baristas will be “engaging” you in a discussion about race relations in the United States.) In the morning. Before you’ve had your caffeine. They think this is a good idea.

If you need an alternate, we’re suggesting Dunkin Donuts. Here’s why:

1.  #RaceTogether! Did you read that first paragraph above? We’re all for having a national conversation about race, but the 30 seconds I want to spend getting my morning caffeine rush is not the right time–and the 19 year old college-dropout barista is not the right person.

2.  Joe Biden once tried to talk about race as it relates to coffee. And that went, well, very badly. Choose Dunkin…because America’s got to find a way to apologize for crazy Uncle Joe, somehow.

3.  Dunkin has a happy symbol on their cups and napkins and stuff. Just a couple of harmless letter D’s. Sesame Street-esque, almost. Starbucks has a symbol of… Starbucks, a double-tailed siren from greek mythology. Siren, as in a sea-creature who would allure sailors to their deaths. Yup, that’s a goddess of death on your cup ‘o joe.

4.  Starbucks is a very, very liberal and anti-Christian company. Support traditional marriage? You’re not welcome by the death goddess. Don’t take our word for it, though.  To quote the CEO, Howard Schultz, “You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company.” In a nutshell, Starbucks would rather you evil Christians NOT buy their coffee!

5.  Your wallet. Hey, if you want to pay $50 for breakfast, go ahead. But Dunkin is cheaper and, quite frankly, way more delicious than that no-foam double shot 10 pumps vanilla white venti mocha decaf soy latte with an extra shot and cream at 120 degrees. (Plus, we’re pretty sure just saying those words makes you a racist. Just sayin.)

Democrats Just Launched A Cult-Of-Personality Contest To Promote President ‘Selfie’ Obama

If there’s one thing Barack Obama seems to love without reservation, it’s…Barack Obama. And the devoted Democratic Party is more than happy to take every opportunity to spread the love among adoring social media sycophants.

Case in point: the Democrats’ latest contest inviting folks to enter for a chance to score a trip to the DNC Winter Meeting in the nation’s capital, where the lucky winner will get to meet the president and come away with that prized possession — a selfie with the man himself.

On their official Twitter account, the Democrat Party is now tweeting to its 356,000 followers the call to action. Forget about learning what POTUS thinks about terrorism, Iran, North Korea, Russia, the economy, the IRS, ObamaCare, Al Sharpton, or even the Grammy Awards. The important thing is to get that moment in the head-trippy spotlight with the rock starriest of commanders in chief, Barack Obama.

Naturally, not everyone on Twitter finds the prez-promoting, donation-seeking contest to be all that cool, as these caustic comments on The Democrats Twitter account prove:

Of course, Obama’s devotion to social media and its vast audience of mostly young and often politically detached users is nothing new, as Twitchy observes:

First it was an interview with “Queen of YouTube” GloZell Green. Next came a sit-down with the brightest thinkers at Vox, the site for brainiac-nerd types.

On Tuesday, President Obama will take his talents to BuzzFeed, the site for people who like lists, cute kittens, and lists of cute kittens, where he’ll sit for another interview and also shoot a video with BuzzFeed Motion Pictures.

WATCH Joe Biden Say Something That Led Him To Explain Six Times That He Was Just Joking

ADVISORY: THE VIDEO CONTAINS LANGUAGE THAT MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME (BUT APPARENTLY NOT TO THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.)

As much as Barack Obama seems to care less and less about the constitutional consequences of what he does, Joe Biden continues to show that he really doesn’t care about the cultural consequences of what he says.

The vice president is, without a doubt, inclined to shoot from the hip…at least that’s the general location from which he shoots off his mouth. For some it’s a disturbing sign of a deteriorating political culture. For others, it’s a refreshing expression of an everyman kind of candor.

Before we get to Biden’s latest instance of “Joe being Joe,” let’s revisit some of his more recent gaffes, courtesy of a piece on time.com:

Speaking at the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum, Vice President Joe Biden on Friday praised former Sen. Bob Packwood, who resigned in 1995 after 19 women accused him of sexual harassment and assault.

On Wednesday, he called lenders of bad loans to people serving in the military “Shylocks,” a derogatory name for Jews, earning him a rebuke form the Anti-Defamation League.

Also, this week, Biden referred to the First Prime Minister of Singapore as “the Wisest Man in the Orient,” an antiquated word deemed offensive by many Asians.

And at an event in Iowa, Biden seemed to leave the door open for ground troops in Iraq to fight the militant group ISIS, a day after President Barack Obama specifically rejected such an option.

Add to that list of Joe Biden’s more memorable moments what he just said during a presentation at the prestigious Institute of Politics at Harvard University. This Biden-ism was something for which the vice president felt the need to tells the students six times that he was only joking.

You can watch the brief video above.

Obama May Want To Stop Letting Biden Speak In Public After Yet Another Offensive Blunder

Vice President Joe Biden made it clear that he is frustrated with today’s crop of Republican legislators during an appearance at the Democrat National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum Friday. The longtime senator, who in his current capacity serves as the chamber’s president, admitted that he has worked with a few admirable GOP colleagues along the way.

The current Republican leadership, he lamented, seems disinterested in helping downtrodden women and the middle class, suggesting the party needs an influx of “guys like [Sen.] Mac Mathias and [Sen. Bob] Packwood” among others.

The latter example, of course, was unceremoniously relieved of his position nearly two decades ago amid rampant allegations of sexual misconduct. The fact that Biden cited Packwood — especially in front of a room packed with women — as one of the good Republicans led to widespread social media criticism.

Making matters worse was the fact that his remarks came on the heels of two other prominent gaffes. As Western Journalism reported, Biden was criticized by many in the Jewish community for using the term ‘Shylock,’ which is regarded by many to be offensive.

He followed that up with an outdated reference to Asia as “the Orient,” which is deemed by many to be an insensitive descriptor.

Culminating with his praise of Packwood, Biden’s detractors found plenty of ammunition with which to mock him.

Six Of The Best Social Blunders In American Politics

washington-dc3811

Chances are if a politician is speaking, he or she is trying to string words together that are likely to strike a chord with whatever audience happens to be at hand.

Do politicians ever believe the words they’re saying? Probably. It must happen from time to time.

While a lot of the words that come out politicians’ mouths are unimaginative (if you recall, President Obama’s original campaign slogan was “Yes We Can”), others can be downright stupefying.

There are moments of unintended greatness where politicians say something that’s either incredibly misguided or incredibly stupid, totally by accident. These gaffes are what some politicos live for. Let’s take a look at six of the best gaffes in recent memory:

1. “Chuck, stand up, let the people see you.”

Anyone who knows anything about Joe Biden knows that he is a man who is all too prone to sticking his foot in his mouth. In 2008, then-vice presidential candidate Biden was at a campaign stop in St. Louis when he tried to get the audience to recognize the work of state Senator Chuck Graham (D-Columbia). Biden asked Graham to stand up in order to be recognized by those in attendance. The problem? Graham, a paraplegic, is confined to a wheelchair. The vice president quickly corrected his remark, telling the people to stand up for Chuck instead. They did.

2. “We bomb Russia in five minutes.”

Everyone has to test out a microphone before going forward with a live speech. President Ronald Reagan learned that the hard way. Prior to giving a weekly radio address in 1984, Reagan joked about outlawing Russia before saying that the U.S. was going to commence bombing it within five minutes. While the press corps and staffers in attendance found the The Gipper’s off-the-cuff remarks quite funny, the same could not be said about Reagan’s political foes and other Americans, who thought the comment was insensitive and made in poor taste.

3. “Brownie, you’re doing a heck of a job.”

If Hurricane Katrina never happened, chances are not that many people would know who Michael DeWayne Brown is. Appointed the director of FEMA under President George W. Bush, Brown was in charge of helping restore normalcy to New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana following the unprecedented 2005 storm. Nearly 10 years later, that city is still not the same ­­– a testament to the chaos that unfolded after Katrina hit. Still, shortly after the storm came and left, Bush famously complimented Brown in a quote that will live on forever.

4. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Yes: an educated man who ascended the ranks to be elected to represent his congressional district uttered those asinine words. U.S. Rep. Todd Akin (R) was actually running for a Missouri senate seat against Claire McCaskill (D) when he said those words on television in 2012. At the time, Akin actually served on the House Science Committee. The worst part about this whole situation? Nearly 40 percent of Missourians still voted for Akin.
