Republican Family Values? What a Joke!

The greatest political oxymoron in history has to be the concept of “Republican Family Values.” I mean, the fact that they can get traction for this for almost 40 years is astounding to me. Earlier, I posted a list of … Continue reading

PCTC GOP Crazies of the Week

Compiled by @Sueinrockville and Milt Shook Election Round-up Ted Cruz definitely had a “busy” week. From his partnership with John Kasich which evaporated  faster than an ice cube on a Cleveland sidewalk in July, the week began with a National Enquirer … Continue reading

Cutting the Crap on Clinton and Bankruptcy

As most of you know, or should know, I was a Martin O’Malley supporter first, and then I flirted with supporting Bernie Sanders until I saw and heard his untenable position on guns. (And no, they have not “evolved.”) So, … Continue reading
