React at OUR Peril

How do I put this? Oh, I know… STOP REACTING TO SHIT. Seriously… stop it. Look, I am not happy with What Donna Brazile said about what she claims happened to the DNC in 2016. I think it was horrible … Continue reading

Incrementalism: It’s How Politics Works

I am watching a Twitter fight evolve between pragmatic liberals like me and dreamy-eyed unicorn progressives over… wait for it… “incrementalism.” The center of the fight is based on Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare-for-All” bill, which will never pass this Congress in … Continue reading
