I Support Marco Rubio Because, Not in Spite, of His Immigration Stance


Great great post on the issues with Trump’s immigration plan and debunking the myth’s about Rubio’s supposed support for “amnesty”.

So, I’ve been rough on Donald Trump lately, and while I don’t regret my views, it’s time for a positive post. However, it is on immigration, so in the process of explaining the issues or giving comparisons, there might be some negativity directed at Trump. Just know, that as of right now – three sentences in – my plan is to keep my dislike of Trump as in control as possible.

Mentioning immigration is a very quick way to spark a heated debate, as I have learned in recent days. If you speak poorly of Donald Trump AND his immigration plan, you might as well change your Twitter handle and get your blocking finger ready; hell prepareth to raineth down upon thee. Such is life. As the old saying goes, stand up for what is right, even if it means you stand alone. Thankfully I have found that I do not stand alone…

No One Has A Pizza Party Themed Wedding: Memories Pizza is the Ultimate Troll

Jonah Goldberg at National Review called the media/liberals/etc. “trawling trolls” over the outrage about Memories Pizza refusing to cater gay weddings and, while I generally have no compunctions against calling the media/liberals/etc. trolls, I have to say that Memories Pizza is the real troll in this situation.

For those that are unaware of the definition of “trolling”, it’s a term of the internet age that means “make a deliberately offensive or provocative online posting with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.”

Who are Superheroes Supporting?

Here at Elementary Politics we are out to keep you on top of both politics and pop culture. As such we have noticed that tumblr has revealed these two things are both crossing and the cause of the upcoming film Captain America: Civil War.

But while it is all too clear that Tony Stark is backing Mitt Romney and Capt. Steve “let me end the surveillance state” Edward Snowden Rogers is unquestionably in the Rand/Ron Paul camp we decided to where other heroes were standing in their current support for possible presidential contenders.

New On Elementary Politics: Things Feminists Hate: Women Protecting Themselves


This seems counter to any logic that I can conceive of. Even the most backwards of the modern feminists should believe in women being proactive about their safety. I mean, what could be more demeaning than expecting women to sit back and wait for the patriarchy to straighten up and act right?

Nonetheless, it’s true.

“I Got My Feelings Hurt on the Internet!” Here’s an Idea, Turn Off Your Computer

Very few things have caused me to roll my eyes harder than reading an article about an atheist feminist who is claiming to have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of harassment on the internet.


This woman is not related to the story at hand, but her sign fits rather well.

A Washington woman has come under fire over claims her PTSD caused by online harassment and Twitter trolls is equal to that of military veterans.

Melody Hensley was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 16 months ago following online abuse, which she says is the result of her being an outspoken feminist and atheist.

She caused upset to many military veterans and their families and friends when she claimed her PTSD from Twitter trolls was as bad as mental anguish suffered by those who do active duty.

Daily Mail

I’ve often stated that those being bullied on the internet have a very simple solution to their problem…turn off the computer or delete the twitter or facebook account that is the source of your trouble, change your email address, etc. This is usually in response to children being harassed by peers or similar issues, but it’s even more applicable when it comes to an adult woman who fears her mental health has been compromised by her internet activity. Internet hate fuels me, but I understand it can be upsetting for some, which is why an adult needs to learn their limit and disconnect from the social media causing their distress when it becomes to severe.
