Bobby Jindal’s Stand Against Religious Freedom

Bobby Jindal Restricts Free Speech

Tina Dupuy: Sure, governor, you’re all for religious freedom you agree with. That’s not freedom. That’s selective religious intolerance. That’s cherry-picking which faiths you support and which faiths you want to see in jail.

Trump: Rising From the GOP’s Ashes

Donald Trump Tops Polls

Tina Dupuy: If we’re going by cognitive dissonance theory, Trump is the true believers doubling down on their resolve and grasping at straws to justify why Republican policies, when put into practice, utterly fail in every imaginable way.

Tina Dupuy: There are only 20 countries on this planet that have a GDP bigger than what we spend on our ubiquitous military.

Republicans at Odds with Corporate America

The GOP’s Daddy Issues

Rand Paul Plagarist

Tina Dupuy: Apparently the tipping point in B-more needs to be met with boilerplate from people running for president. Blah blah moral code. Blah blah family structure. Blah blah idle blather tax cuts Benghazi Monica Lewinsky ISIS.

End the War on Deadbeat Dads

Deadbeat Dads

Tina Dupuy: What Scott’s death has highlighted is a system that is cruel, arbitrary and punitive toward fathers and strangely dismissive of the best interests of their children.
