The GOP “Small Government” Punchline

It’s hard to Have a discussion with a Republican without them mentioning their fetiish for what they refer to as “small government.” Of course, we all know that’s a joke; their definition of “small government” Is pretty absurd. On the one hand, their model is supposedly a government “small enough …

Why the GOP Isn’t Dead Yet

If you understand politics to any serious degree, you should realize that the current incarnation of the GOP is pretty much the walking dead, politically speaking. That said, like the corpses in that iconic TV show, being politically “dead” is meaningless, in a certain way. I cringe every time I …

The Republican Lottery Capitalist Model

As I said, this election and the next few after this cannot simply be a referendum on Donald J. Trump. The Republican Party has been broken for a while, and Trump is just the end result of at leas a half century of fealty. Progressives have to realize that we …

The Real Political Enemy

This election is not about Donald Trump. I say that because Trump is not a problem, so much as a symptom. Our problem is the Republican Party, and has been for a while. A good, solid, sane political party could not nominate someone as horrible as Trump. The current GOP …

Cutting the Crap on the Second “Debate.”

The most surprising thing about the coverage of last night’s debate came when I saw a breaking news alert from CNN saying that “Trump performed better than expected…” How is that possible? Was someone expecting the orange man-child to develop seizures or pull out a gun and fire at Clinton? The …

Repost: What’s So Awful About Hillary? A Challenge

I posted this on July 28, and so far, nothing. I’m posting it again because some are claiming Hillary’s just horrible. Again. Prove it or shut up… ————————————————- This is going to be quick. I know, I say that a lot and then come up with 2000 additional words, right? …

Stop With the False Equivalence

Where the hell does this bullshit come from? When people discuss politics, it seems to be almost an obsessive compulsion to try to equivocate among all of the candidates. Just stop it. The following are all facts: Hillary Clinton has been accused of many, many things. She has undergone numerous …

No, the ACA is NOT Failing

I have to admit, I am getting a little tired of the hyperbole that tries to pass for journalism these days. It’s getting really, really old. For example, there is this “analysis”from Monday’s New York Times about the Affordable Care Act. The headline, “Ailing Obama Health Care Act May Have …

More That Voters Need to Know About Donald Trump

It is difficult to address all of the issues that make Donald Trump unfit for the presidency, but after the last long post, which you can find here,  I realized quickly that I hadn’t done much more than scratch the surface. There will be a few other parts to this coming …

Data Show Why NO ONE Should Ever Vote GOP

I know many of you think you look smarter when you do so, but the fact of the matter is,  individual politicians can’t do much of anything in a democratic system, so focusing on individual voting records is kind of dumb. Since 1981, Democrats have only had control of the …

WTF are You Protesting?

The number of “progressives” and “liberals” who are plannng to vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson seems to be dwindling, thank goodness. However, the number should be zero. No liberal in their right mind should even think about voting for Gary Johnson, who is a right winger who happens …

The Trump Debate Crap Cut

I have been watching these debates for a long time. I remember sitting in my living room with my mom and hearing Gerald Ford tell Jimmy Carter that Eastern Europe wasn’t under Soviet Union influence. That was a single gap and it quite likely cost Ford the 1976 election. My, …

End the Freakout Cycle

You know what’s going to happen tonight. We all do, if we really think about it and think about it hard. There will be a debate tonight. Hillary Clinton will show up and offer a huge helping of competence and she will demonstrate that she knows what she’s doing. She …

Unicorn Progressives and “Principle.”

I know many “political junkies” are too busy panicking to think about it, but do you have any idea why so many mainstream Republicans are putting aside their hatred of Donald Trump to vote for him anyway? Do you know why they will hold their nose and vote Republican, no …

Utopian Blues

Let’s talk about the dumbest “political” question I have ever been asked in my life. I was asked this on Twitter yesterday. I made the observation that every progressive in the country must be absolutely four-square pro-Hillary by now because the fate of the country is at stake. And their …

The GOP “Doubled the Debt,” Not Obama

I say this a lot, but this is an important concept that absolutely must be said and repeated ad nauseam until the average person gets it. The reason the debt has gone up under Obama is NOT because the government is spending too much money. Now, let me explain. This is …

Cutting it on the “Clinton #1 was Bad” Claim

What is it with so many progressives, who keep talking about the last Clinton Administration as if it turned the country into a hellscape? I mean, when you suggest that Bill will be living in the White House with President Hillary Clinton to unicorn progressives, you’d swear you just shot …

Bubble Progressives

I’m apparently supposed to be scared to death right now.  Apparently, I am supposed to believe that Hillary Clinton is in serious trouble in her presidential run, and that I should be afraid because half the population plans to vote for Donald Trump. Okay, that’s not the only reason I …

Hearts and Minds

I spend far too much of my time talking to “progressives” who speak as if they’re political experts, even though they seem to have no clue as to how politics works. They blame Democratic committees for Democrats’ losses in recent years, as if the DNC and the DCCC do more …

Jesus Loved the Poor; He’d Never Vote Trump or the GOP

Can you claim to be a Christian and also plan to vote for Donald Trump? Sure. It’s a free country; if you want to call yourself a dog and bark to communicate, you can do that if you wish. It all depends on how accurate you perceive yourself as being. …
