Imagine a world where clicks equal dollars. Where likes and shares not only feed our egos, but also our children. A world where retweets and comments satisfy our inner desire to be accepted and liked, and pay our mortgages. Or do we live in that world already?

Mike Rylander With all the noise the recent CAA-signing of “Instagram star” Fat Jew made, or the continual noise other social media superstars make, or the spontaneous celebrity status that a good viral video can bestow on any schmuck with a cellphone and a YouTube account, there is a strong case to be made that

Jeb Bush recently told Republicans in Iowa that he was “proud” of his brother’s tough stance on torture following the 9/11 attacks. To me, this is outrageous. This should disqualify Jeb Bush completely from being the commander in chief of our military as well as the President of the United States.

Off The Grid It is a crime to torture someone you have captured at war. That is a crime. There are no exceptions to a crime. On one hand Jeb Bush is saying: generally feeling, I don’t support torture… But I can see the point where there would be an occasional exception. No there isn’t.

Three American friends on a European vacation and one local man overpowered a heavily-armed man in a crowded, high-speed train to Paris — all four were awarded France’s highest honor on Monday.

Off The Grid It’s phenomenal! I think they are exactly what people said they are: heroes. I believe they were smart enough and quick enough to do what needed to be done. I heard that one of them said something along the lines of, “I’m not going to just sit here and die.”That’s exactly correct.

21 young people are suing the American government and President Obama for allegedly violating their constitutional rights by causing climate change in the development and use of fossil fuels.

Off The Grid According to Alternet, the lawsuit, which was filed in a US District Court in Oregon, alleges, “that, in causing climate change, the federal government has violated the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, property, and has failed to protect essential public trust resources,” and that “Despite knowing CO2 emissions cause dangerous climate change

U.S. tax revenues are at a record high. Over $2.67 trillion has come in so far this fiscal year, according to the latest Treasury Department report. The burden of who pays the bulk of U.S. taxes has shifted over time from companies to individuals.

Off The Grid Since corporations are individuals, why not have them pay an individual tax rate the same way people do? They want to be people? Let’s take it the whole route and make them people then. The point of the matter is that corporations are controlling the government and thus, are paying less. When

Kentucky Clerk who has been refusing to issue marriage licenses has been summoned by a federal judge.

Off The Grid Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has been summoned by U.S. District Judge David Bunning to explain why she shouldn’t be jailed or fined for contempt. Davis has been making headlines since she stopped issuing marriage licenses after the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage. The Supreme Court ruled against her request to be

Public Policy Polling asked Republican voters if they believe Obama was born in the United States. 29% said yes Obama was born in the USA and 40% said Ted Cruz was born in the USA when he was in factborn in Canada.

Off The Grid Here’s a suggestion: maybe we need an intelligence test in order to be able to vote.But that would probably eliminate half the voters! That was a joke, joke, joke, people.

It’s my final day as Off the Grid’s vigilant producer and co-cost. Here is what I learned from Jesse Ventura and Off the Grid…

Brigida Santos Today is a bittersweet day. I have spent the last nine months working my ass off (with the help of TEAM OTG of course) to make this show informative, entertaining and different from anything else on tv. Many of you may be wondering what exactly it is that a producer does. In a nutshell, my job is to come
