Don’t Worry, Choose Sanity

I want to say something about polls. More specifically, i want to cut the crap on those who speak of an individual poll as if it reflects reality. No individual poll has ever reflected a precise perception of reality at a specific moment in time. There is a reason why …

We Already Have a “People’s Party”

We are in crisis right now, which means we, as progressives, should be in crisis mode. That means we have to do whatever works to get us out of this crisis. The biggest problem this country has, really, is an apathy problem. Too many people think voting is an option …

We Have to be Anti-Republican, and Donny is a Republican

I love making fun of the current occupant of the White House. I even make fun of him directly on Twitter, it’s so much fun. However, even as we make fun of his sorry ass, as the least-qualified person to ever hold office and someone who probably got where he …

The Only Unicorn is a Frappuccino

I hate the fact that I have to address this AGAIN, but it is so frustrating, someone has to say it. I have been active in politics – including party politics, since I was 14 and worked for McGovern’s failed campaign. In ALL of that time, I have been a …

Stop Being Negative

Okay, I have to make this quick, but it’s something that has to be said. I am a progressive… What i mean by that is, I am a full-on Pinko, radical liberal who wants everyone in society to have the opportunity to do well. I want everyone in this country …

And Some Blame Goes to…

I blame a lot of people for making us have to deal with Trump in the White House. I blame the Russians, for pushing anti-Hillary stories in the media and for quite possibly hacking the vote in some areas of the country. I blame conservatives for putting aside their claims …

Perspective 

It boggles the mind how many “political junkies” seem to think that obsessing over a single vote by a Democrat on something that ultimately doesn’t matter is the hill upon which they wish to sacrifice the progressive movement. It really needs to stop. First of all, you people look stupid, …

One More Thing We Have to Do…

I feel especially prescient lately. Within the last few days, a number of news stories have come to light explaining that Lord Donny really is not a big fan of his job as “president.” And there is a single thread running through all of them. He doesn’t like the job …

Yes We Can, Pro Lefties – and We Have To

As you have probably figured out, I am tired of lefty “political junkies” telling me what we can’t do because “the GOP won’t ever go along” or “voters didn’t do X before, so there’s no reason to expect them to do it now.” You know, silly shit like that. I …

The Yellow Brick Road Ahead…

The most difficult aspect of this past election could very well be the denial that has come from far too many on the far left. Look at the pro left in recent days. With ten days to go before inauguration, a great many of these folks are still hanging onto …

The Real (Snow)Flakes

I dunno about you, but I’m tired of being called a “delicate snowflake.” It was perhaps amusing at first, but now it’s just ironic. I mean, the people referring to liberals as “delicate snowflakes” have as a hero someone who cannot take even the smallest slight without lashing out at …

Look at the Big Picture

I’ll get into this to a greater degree in a separate post, but we are not really as “polarized” as the media likes to claim. What we actually have is two really loud extremes; the right wing has both a short-term and a long-term goal of “winning,” while the far …

The Tone Deafness of the Unicorn Left

As I keep saying, there is a clear reason why liberals and progressives always come out on the short end of the stick. And we should also know and understand that reason. It’s because a small-but-really-loud strain of unicorn progressives prefer drama over reality and almost always go after Democrats for being …

Destructive Anger

Oh, my God, people! Get a grip. I get it. The prospect of Donald Trump becoming president is scary as hell. I was hoping that the Electoral College would do the right thing, but I wasn’t expecting it. It would have been even more unprecedented than Trump, the most completely …

Avoiding Reponsibility

Many years ago, I was a very successful retail manager. My last retail management job featured me taking a small electronics store in a high-end shopping mall and turning it from a money loser to making a substantial profit within a year. I did such a great job that the …

Being Liberal Means Being a Democrat…

There’s no other choice… Look, government is important to all of us. It is how we, as a society, manage to make society better and preserve our human rights. Strong government has been demonstrated to make us better as a people; it is how we all get together and do …

Wasting Time by Manufacturing Outrage

It is a unique talent that unicorn progressives and the professional left have; to manufacture outrage. They’re very prolific. And I must admit, such a thing does draw clicks. That’s because unicorn progressives don’t seem happy unless they’re phenomenally pissed off about something. In fact, a frequent throwaway line for …

How’d That Work Out for You? 

This is an important time for the progressive movement. It is a time for all liberals to work together for once. It’s a time for everyone on the left to organize and work together to fend off what could turn out to be one of the most trying times in …

Taking Advantage of Trump

If we do our jobs properly as Americans (NOT just as liberals/Democrats, but as Americans), Donald Trump is in for a world of hurt come January 20, 2017. It is very obvious that he and the Republican Party in general think he will essentially be the “boss” of the United …

We Live In a Democratic Republic, So…

We live in a democratic republic. Again, I am always amazed that I have to write/say that out loud to so many self-described progressives, but apparently, I do. And what that means is, you can demand all sorts of nice things, but if the people occupying government don’t want to …
