17 Reasons for Optimism in the Age of Trump

It cannot be understated how much Trump’s election has deepened and widened an already enormous divide in our country. Many people have legitimate concerns about this man that are based on things he has said and has already done as president. This is unlike Obama’s detractors and their wild conspiracy theories, like Obama being a foreign born Muslim, who was going to impose Sharia Law, take everyone’s guns, and force...

Stop Asking Me To Be Sympathetic Towards Trump Voters, Anthony Bourdain!

The level of contention in American has reached such a level that even Anthony Bourdain has managed to piss me off, and that’s saying something since I went out of my way to give him a shout out in my travel memoir.

To keep the NSB presidential theme going, I decided to dedicate this Top5 to tonight’s presidential debate (and the election). If you are a fan of either Trump or Clinton (or a hater of either/both), then I guarantee you that one of these will tickle your funny bone. Like if you support Trump, Share if you support Clinton.

Moderate Conservatives Are Ruining the Country

Editor’s Note: This article was first published by us three years ago. In it, Brian explains how moderate Republicans were supporting and empowering a party that could destroy America and whose base was “bat-shit crazy.” With Trump’s win in Indiana this week, and no one standing between him and the Republican nomination, Brian insisted we republish it to show what’s at the root of the Trump phenomena and...
