GOP Right Boobs of the Week – Which One’s the Hole in the Ground? Edition

by @SueInRockville and Milt Shook This has been a banner week for the Trump-led Republican Party. The week started with a tragic loss, which created a virtual vortex in the Republican ideology because it forced them to confront three issues That they don’t exactly like to deal with, and not …

Stop the Hostage Taking

Once again, whereas PUBs and the professional left could be experiencing the fruits of an enormous victory in this election season, they are once again trying to figure out a way to completely screw it up. At the center is Bernie Sanders, who thinks the way you get “revolution” is …

Dear Gunloons…

I have been advocating for stricter gun laws for more than 30 years. It’s personal to me, as someone I knew and loved was gunned down senselessly in a robbery by someone who had no business with a gun. This was in the 1980s and in the intervening years, guns …

Obama Calls Out Stupid Trump

Once again, President Obama showed why he is a credit to the United States as President with his level-headed approach to policy on all levels, as well as his willingness to take on the idiots in the Republican Party, led by their titular head, one Donald J. Drumpf, er, Trump. …

Congresscritters who take NRA Money are Accessories to Murder

by @SueinRockville, from her post at Daily Kos Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart”- Anne Frank As we begin to mourn the dead once again after another mass murder in America and with all the usual knee-jerk responses, let’s go back to the beginning and …

It’s Not About Religion, It’s About Hate

Okay, it’s time to be honest here… In keeping with my basic philosophy, I never use the names of mass shooters, but that will work great in this case. For the sake of this article, let’s call him Biff. Biff was born in the United States from parents who were from …

America the Bloody

So, I wake up this morning to word of the “worst mass shooting in U.S. history,” at a night club in Orlando, Florida, where someone opened fire, killing 50 people and injuring more than 50 others. As far as I know, I didn’t know anyone in that club, but my …

There is no “Abortion Debate.”

There is really no such thing as an “abortion” debate. What we are actually having when we discuss abortion is a freedom debate. Who gets to decide whether or not a woman should stay pregnant against her will? Should it be the woman herself, or should she be forced to cede that power …

Why Bernie Sanders Lost

Contrary to what many Bernie Stans think, I happen to like Bernie Sanders a lot. Back when I listened to a lot of progressive radio, I used to look forward to Brunch with Bernie on the Thom Hartmann Show and I liked when he got up in front of Congress …

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Flip-Flop Edition

by @SueinRockville and @MiltShook For those who still aren’t convinced the GOP is brain-dead and on life support, you’re not paying close enough attention. The emergence of the 17-Klown Klown Kar at the end of last year was only the beginning. Now, they seem to have nominated Donald Trump as …

Sending Messages and Holding “Them” Accountable

I’ve been around a long time. I’m not old, yet, but I’ve been around a while. No matter how long I’m around, however, I will never understand why PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade, sometimes called “emo progs,” but I’m not a fan of that term.) and pundits on the professional left …

While Far Lefties Were Sleeping

Over the last few months/years, I have had PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) and the professional left tell me that the single biggest issue that we have to deal with is “income inequality.” The second biggest? College debt. The third biggest? “Single-payer,” which they assume is synonymous with “universal health care.” …

Don’t Waste Your Time Fighting With Republicans

I’m a lot like many of you. Some days, we just can’t help it. There are times when we just feel like diving into a Republican right wing fight because we want to “win.” It can feel like a bit of an ego boost; most of these people are not …

Not as Polarized as Advertised

I don’t know about you guys, but I am sick of the press telling me how “polarized” the politics is. And don’t tell me you haven’t heard or read it. It’s all they talk about. On every issue and every discussion, we’re told that “the two sides” are so far …

Here’s the Thing About Privacy

It used to be really easy. If we wanted privacy, we could just stay at home, hide under our covers and keep to ourselves. Alone. No problem, unless we wanted to work for a living. It’s funny, but while we complain about privacy constantly, are we really worse off than …

No Enthusiasm? Bull.

One very serious problem with the media narrative for this year’s election is that it doesn’t center on anything factual. Facts have given way to speculation and conjecture. Now, part of that is because there are so many aspects to this year’s election that we seem to have not seen …

Republican Right Boobs of the Week: Trump Clinches Edition

While my friend @sueinrockville spends some time with her family, I get to keep up our new tradition on my own this week. There is a lot of Trump news, as always. Republicans have to be crazy as loons to allow this idiot to be nominated, and this is why. …

My Two Cents: Trump vs. Bernie? Why?

Okay, I opened up comments – for now – so can someone please explain to me, what would be the purpose of a debate between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders? They both appeal to largely the same people, albeit on opposite ends of the spectrum. They appeal to people who …

The Progressive Circular Firing Squad

Once again, we see the far left’s tendency to try to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  This election year, we have a unique opportunity. On the Republican side, we have the weakest presidential candidate in the history of the Republican Party – someone who makes 1964-edition Barry Goldwater …

The Facts About Gun Violence

The NRA has been sending the following ad far and wide to get the gunloons excited about guns and overall gun looniness. It actually conceptualizes the average American good ole boy standing up to ISIS and blowing them all away with their freely purchased guns. It’s pure fantasy, and with …
