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 things Democrats have passed that make family life easier. Before

Some Words Mean Nothing

“The reason I talk to myself is because I’m the only one whose answers I accept.” ― George Carlin I want to talk about two words. Or, more accurately, two terms, that have come into serious overuse this election season; “establishment” and “status quo.” PUBs and professional lefties love those

Don’t Give Me That Do-Goody-Good BS

Money is definitely a problem in the United States. I will not say otherwise. I mean, the fact that Congresscritters have to spend nearly every waking hour trying to raise money so they can keep their jobs is a major problem. It’s also a major problem that the holders of

Guest Post: An Honest Appraisal of Bernie Sanders & His Bullies

 Another great piece by @SueinRockville. (And if you’re going to rip her or me for it, you’ll need basic facts to back you up. Just saying…) “No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not

The Scourge of the Progressive Movement

Let me ask you a question. Now, this question is rhetorical, so I don’t expect you to answer it for me, although there is a comment section, so feel free. If there is something you should have learned about by now, after reading this and other blogs I have maintained

Yes We CAN! and We Have to!

Over the weekend, I was catching up on last week’s Stephanie Miller Show and I heard a “Bernie or Bust” type caller advise everyone that he will never vote for Hillary. I suspect he was a troll caller, since he said he was an Afghanistan veteran with teenage sons and

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
