There was a time when politics was about issues that affected the lives of individuals and their families, when voters aligned themselves with politicians who represented their values regardless of political party. Now, smear campaigns are flooding the media airwaves that are smoke and mirrors to distract voters from important issues: the economy, education, health, and military security.
A disturbing trend is the constant race baiting. The polarization of Americans is at its worst during this presidential race. Any effort to discuss facts that impact American lives are dashed when many who question President Barack Obama's leadership are called racists. If you are a Black American who questions President Obama's job, some consider you an Uncle Tom or Aunt Jemima. However, if you support President Obama, some will consider you closed-minded and in stride with the New Black Panther Party.
If you are against Mitt Romney and you are Black, you will receive a virtual high-f...Read More »

Ali and John discuss the conspiracy theory that Hurricane Sandy was masterminded by Obama using the U.S. government's secret weapon HAARP, which is an atmospheric, ionic program that can create the perfect storm. These conspirators believe Obama did this so that he could save citizens from a big hurricane and gain more votes in the upcoming election.
Do you believe Hurricane Sandy was a conspiracy? Tell us in the comments.
More can't-miss moments: Ali talks Kelsey Grammer, who took his 3-month-old baby to the Playboy Mansion for their annual Halloween party; Tata, a Bangkok-born masseuse who claims that getting slapped in the face will help ward off wrinkles; and Erico, the pro-wrestler who auctioned off the side of his face for $15,000 and got a Romney tattoo.

It's not every election year that our food supply makes its way on to the ballots. However, rarely is food a political issue. This year the issues of genetically modified foods and the labeling of these foods has become an issue of citizen's rights and and human welfare that goes in to the hands of Californians next week. We want to make sure all voters know where they stand and learn more about this issue that, if passed, will affect all Americans.
Californians will vote for their Right to Know on November 6.
Genetically modified organisms (or GMOs) are plants or meats that have had their DNA altered in a lab. These organisms have been altered in order to grow a product that might resist pesticides within its own tissue, may yield bigger crops, heartier fruits, or withstand an odd climate despite it being unnatural and completely experimental. These type of organisms are very common in the US, more so than most consumers are even aware of. The majority of corn, soy, cotton, and sugar beet crops grown i...Read More »

At the culmination of the political season, the candidates are using every last trick to sway public opinion. Ann Romney is being the good wife, trying to show the American public that her husband is in touch with the average American, or at least with the average American Costco shopper. She appeared on the "Rachael Ray Show" yesterday to share her Costco shopping tips and Mitt's favorite meals, and revealed how far she can stretch the Romney family's dollars.
On the show, Mrs. Romney said she can feed all five sons and their families, a total of 30 people, for $137.50, or $4.50 per person. What did she purchase on this trip to feed her large extended family? Romney focused on convenience items that she could serve without much preparation, like large bags of spinach, pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, raspberries, and containers of frozen cream puffs. She's a big fan of frozen desserts, because they're ready to serve.
