Flashback: How to be a Republican, But Not a RINO!

This is what you have to believe if you’re to be called a “real Republican.” Of course, the next logical question would be, why would anyone want to believe any of this crap? And right wingers who happen upon this list; come on, you know I’m right. You have to

How Republican Thinking Costs Us – Repeatedly.

Ya know, I’m sick of hearing about how Democrats who are supposedly “tax & spend liberals” and it’s the Republican Party who will save the country from everything. There is literally nothing Republicans have done in recent years that hasn’t cost us, as American taxpayers, billions and even trillions of

The Importance of Common Sense

For the last few days, I have watched as both extreme sides of the political spectrum have gone completely crazy over the concept of Syrian refugees. Yes, I said BOTH SIDES. Look, I am all for bringing in more refugees, but the issue is not whether or not we bring

Um, No; “Intelligent Design” is NOT Science

For some stupid reason, I allowed a friend to refer me to something “intelligent” that a prominent TV host said yesterday regarding how we have to allow people to look closely at “Intelligent Design” as, well, scientific theory. Well, no we don’t. What is referred to as “Intelligent Design” is

Telling the truth about Syrian Refugees

As probably should have been predicted by, well, everyone, the terrible attacks in Paris last Friday night brought out the xenophobic right in full force. With their idiotic cries of “American safety must come first,” they have responded with the cowardice and lack of humanity we have come to expect

Dear America: Get a GRIP!

Okay, folks, stop with the hysteria. Fear in the wake of the Paris tragedy is not helpful in the least. I mean, we did this before, in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and all we did was make terrorists stronger. That’s what they feed on; there’s a reason

Your Embrace of Paris is NOT “Misguided”

There seem to be people out there in progressive pundit-land who believe that we either have to show solidarity with all countries who suffer through terror or none at all. Apparently, the ability to walk and chew gum at the same time is a skill that far left liberals believe

#DemDebate Post-mortem

The biggest takeaway from last night’s Democratic debate was about Republicans.  Seriously, anyone who can look at the presidential fields of both parties and continue to claim both parties are the same has been proven a complete idiot. When they discussed anything, from “Wall Street” to immigration, the subject was

Correcting the Record: Minimum Wage Increases are Good for the Economy

One of the key points Republicans tried to make at the last debate on Fox Business was a fantasy in which someone making very little money makes more and it’s somehow disastrous for the economy. In fact, Ben Carson even claimed that “every time” the minimum wage increases, we lose

Dear Petulant White “Progressives”…

Okay, so I was listening to the podcast of today’s Stephanie Miller Show (Good bye, Chris LaVoie, you will be missed!) and some white liberal who bragged about being affiliated with Occupy called in because he took offense at the notion that people like him were going to “take their

Heading Toward Apocalypse…

… NOT. See, I generally don’t do that. I don’t believe we’re better off being negative about much of anything, let alone everything. That said, once again we’re here, a day after an election where we are forced to lick our wounds because we progressives keep doing the same things

It’s Time We Called the GOP What It Is; Our Enemy

Tonight is another Republican klown show, er, “debate,” and there is little doubt that it will be long on chaos and short of proposals that may help the American people. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, of course; things have been this way for a while. If we want to change this

Reposted Yet AGAIN: The “Gerrymandering” Red Herring!

I can’t believe this “gerrymandering” crap still hangs on in October 2015. This is basic math, for chrissakes! To obtain a majority in the House, you need 218 seats. In the 29 states that actually register voters by party, Republicans have 27 percent of registrations, which means three-quarters of voters are

A Call for Congressional Candidates to Take a Test on the Constitution

Here’s the thing: Before they are allowed to take a seat in the United States House of Representatives or the United States Senate, every single member is required to take the following oath: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all
