Ted Cruz Signs Up for Obamacare, Loses Freedom

Sen. Ted Cruz, who previously shut down the government in an effort to stop Obamacare, claiming it "takes our freedom away," announced this week that he himself is now signing up for it. As Cruz feared, as soon as he logged into, he immediately lost all his freedom. The Texas senator will remain trapped in one of the Affordable Care Act's mandated "Obamacages" until he either succeeds in repealing the law that provides health coverage to over 16 million Americans, or until he is set free by a death panel.

Guns Don't Kill People, Babies Kill People

After an Idaho woman was shot and killed by her two-year-old son, who found the mother's gun in her purse, the NRA has issued a statement that this tragedy could have been averted if only the mother had carried a second gun, with which to defend herself against her child.

Talking Torture with the CIA (Audio)

With a Senate report raising new concerns about the CIA's use of torture (and possibly adding a new meaning to the term "bottom feeder"), here's what Inquisition Radio was able to find out from the agency (without resorting to enhanced interrogation techniques). Joe Smith contributed to this report.

KY Senator Calls Climate Change 'Made Up Science;' Skeptics Call Kentucky 'Made Up State'

With the People's Climate March approaching this weekend, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) announced a new investigation he hopes will discredit some of the climate scientists, whom he claims "are making up their facts." This comes as some skeptics claim the senator himself may be making up the state of Kentucky. 

"Kentucky is a hoax" claims a spokesperson for a group of Kentucky deniers. "It's just a money-making scheme for the bourbon industry." As evidence, the group cites the fact that none of them have ever been there. 

Although a vast majority of geographers and the state's 4.38 million residents believe in Kentucky, as a news organization, the Inquisition must give equal weight to both sides of the argument.

Millions Flood Websites for Unpopular 'Obamacare'

Within the first hours that they opened, millions of masochistic Americans flooded the websites of the new insurance exchanges that, according to Republicans, they don't want.  Demand for the unpopular "Obamacare" was so high that the websites had trouble accommodating all the traffic. This is not surprising, as Americans typically flock by the millions to things they hate.

With over 10 million visitors, nearly as many people went to New York's health exchange on the first day as watched the despised finale of Breaking Bad, a show named for how universally disliked it is.

Delays caused by the 16,000 hits per second on California's exchange have led critics to call it the biggest failure to come out of the Golden State since the reviled new iPhone.

Republican lawmakers remain committed to overturning the hated health law so Americans can once again enjoy the things they love, such as being denied care because of pre-existing conditions, having their premiums jacked up at random, and facing total financial ruin if they ever become sick.

NRA Head Calls for 'National Database of Lunatics,' Stops Short of Signing Himself Up

Yesterday on Meet the Press, NRA leader Wayne LaPierre argued that the Navy Yard shooting could have been prevented if only the Navy had more guns. And although he has opposed the registration of guns, he called for registering America's mentally ill in a "national database of these lunatics."

Last year, LaPierre argued that the fact that President Obama took no action to restrict guns during his first term was proof of a "massive Obama conspiracy… to destroy the Second Amendment" during his second term. He also has suggested that President Obama will make it illegal to fly the American flag and that efforts to reduce gun violence will lead the UN to commit "mass executions of gun owners." Despite his call for a national database of lunatics, this leader of one of America's most powerful lobbying groups stopped short of offering to sign himself up.
