Informational Responsibility

I’m currently living in Tucson, Arizona. Everyone who lives here knows all about Interstate 19, which is a relatively short leg of Interstate highway that goes from the southern part of Tucson and empties out in Nogales, Arizona, which is on the border with Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. The fact that

Your Vote is Not Your Own

A lot of people have weighed in on the Susan Sarandon statements on Chris Hayes’ show the other night. From the looks of it, Hayes’ audience must have tripled the other night. No, wait, I forgot; once again, it’s people on social media amplifying a message that is at once

A New E-Book: What Liberals Want – Just $1

Have you ever wondered how to get people to understand the Liberal point of view and to get them to vote for us in elections? Well, here you go. Here’s a short ebook that explains what liberals in the United States actually want and you can have it sent to anyone

“Bernie or Bust?” You’re an Idiot!

Do you know why progressives always lose? Sit down and read up, folks, because this is important. I came across an article in the Huffington Post by some tool named Russ Belville. Now, I’ve never heard of  this guy before, even though his byline proudly describes him as host of

A Progressive Rant, Part II: Bernie Stans

(Before I start, the following does not apply to most supporters of Bernie Sanders, but the extremists, who make sure they are prominent. They know who they are.) You know, there’s a reason why many of us who have worked in or with campaigns of various types refer to primaries

A Progressive Rant, Part 1

We need to talk, progressives. Not all progressives, just the really loud ones who screw the rest of us on a regular basis. Before I start, what I want you to do is clear your mind and open it up. I really shouldn’t have to do that, since you’re supposedly

Fix Yourselves

People, let’s talk. We have a serious problem. First of all, a lot of you who claim to be “political junkies” don’t seem to understand what politics is. As I have written before, politics is not the same as issues or ideology  or any of that. The confusion regarding the

Opening Up Club Progressive

Last week, I discussed the “progressives” who seem to treat progressive politics as if it’s a special club for only a select few; a kind of “He-Man Woman-Haters Club” for liberals. This time, I want to talk about the damage these members of “Club Progressives” do. It seems that almost

Stop Being Stupid; the Only Issue That Really Matters

Perhaps you heard… Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Obama’s rules regarding power plant emissions that is part of his efforts to rein in climate change. The ruling was a party-line (yes, I said party-line because, who are we kidding?) vote of 5-4. The stay lasts until a lower

No One is Pure

Over the last few weeks, some PUBs and professional lefties have been bringing up the fact that Hillary Clinton was a “Goldwater Girl” back in 1964, thereby implying that she’s not a “true Democrat.” Likewise, a great many people have been complaining for months because Bernie Sanders isn’t a “real

Who Gets to Be “Progressive”?

(Okay, before I start, I’ll remind everyone that PUB refers to “Progressive Unicorn Brigade,” those (usually white) “progressives” who demand perfection from Democrats. (I’m not a fan of the term “emoprog.”) I have been a progressive my entire life. Well, almost my entire life; when I was 10, the Nixon-Agnew

The Inanity of “Revolution.”

About once a month, something comes across my Facebook feed along the lines of, “I don’t know how the hell we children of the 1950s and 1960s survived. We were tough and we did all kinds of things that are considered really dangerous these days and, as a result, we

Reality and “Corporate Interests”

I am growing very tired of the asinine argument that we’re no longer a democracy because we’re supposedly dominated by “corporate interests.” It is especially tiresome that so many people make this argument without giving any actual specifics. Of course, the reason there are no specifics is because the concept

Unicorns and Rainbows and Stupid “Progressives”

Okay, so I’m looking at my Facebook feed this morning and I am confronted with an epic 3400-word screed about how Hillary Clinton is, well, a “Republican.” Really. The entire article was so clueless, I felt compelled to use it as an example of why we progressives lose and hand

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

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

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

There is Nothing More Progressive than Ousting the GOP

The first thing every progressive should know is, most voters are already preternaturally inclined to vote for the Democratic Party. We’ve known this since the 1930s. Since 1932, registered Democrats have outnumbered registered Republicans by a significant margin, even when there was a trend in which more and more voters
