November 14, 2013

On The Better Half: President Obama explains new tweaks to the ACA, white supremacist finds out he has African ancestry on live television, Rush Limbaugh says more disgusting things about single women, a moving statement from the Philippines climate change representative and a disgusting commentary from Fox News hack and your calls and IMs.
