Welcome to the Real World: The Racism of the GOP

Let me just say this… If you are surprised that today’s Republicans are racist, you really haven’t been paying attention. Over the weekend, the reliably racist Rep. Steve King of Iowa asked the following question of a New York Times … Continue reading

Cutting the Crap on Immigration Nonsense

There is a reason this blog is called “Please Cut the Crap.” There is just so much bullshit floating around out there, someone has to cut through it and tell you the truth. For example, there’s the hysteria – for … Continue reading

The Racism of the Left

It doesn’t matter how “right” you think about everything… It doesn’t matter that you think of yourself as a “loyal progressive” who will never compromise your “principles.” It doesn’t matter that your “ideals” are upheld by the entire professional left … Continue reading

The White Privilege of the Political Left

On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, 2018, I am prepared for a bunch of different things. For example, I am prepared to get sucked into a Twitter racist vortex, in which people with no lives will text the “n-word” … Continue reading

Dear Men…

I’d like to say I’m shocked by how many prominent men have been caught with their pants around their ankles, as the saying goes, but I’m really not, nor should I be. By and large, men are pigs and when … Continue reading

Calling Out Fake Christians

While many will take this post as a diatribe against Christians, it really isn’t. It’s a plea to start calling out FAKE Christians. You know who I mean; people who wield their alleged Christianity like a blunt instrument, or those … Continue reading

Why Trump Waited So Long and Still Blew It

All weekend, Lord Donny barely Tweeted. He claimed to be in meetings all day, but we all know he was probably playing golf. We know this because he doesn’t attend many meetings and when it rains enough to wash out … Continue reading

The Warriors for Free Speech

Funny. I have been a “warrior for free speech” all my life. I have worked continuously to make sure everyone’s speech is properly protected from government and private interference, to the extent possible. For example, I would never deny that … Continue reading

Major Flashback: Pro-Choice is the Essence of Liberty

For the New Year, I decided to repost something I wrote and published for the first time on April 18, 1997. It’s depressing, in a way, that it’s even more fitting now than it was when I wrote it. Women’s … Continue reading

Where Have You Been? Welcome Back!

I am flabbergasted, and I don’t flabbergast easily. It’s probably because I am a white liberal, but I am amazed at how many of my fellow white liberals are screaming that they are now worried that the election of Donald … Continue reading

White Privilege is Fact. Period.

A few days ago, I got tired of the asinine postings about Colin Kaepernick. I mean, I can’t believe so many people care about this nonsense. So, on my personal Facebook page, I did the unthinkable; I posted about 4 … Continue reading

Voter Suppression Can Only Work if…

Anyone who thinks the Republican “message” is why they keep beating us in elections is remarkably gullible. There I said it. Phew. Republicans win because of a two-pronged approach that we could counter easily, if PUBs and the professional left … Continue reading

Document Dumpers are Not “Heroes”

Just before the convention last week, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) had to deal with the release of thousands of emails through Julian Assange and Wikileaks. According to most sources investigating this matter, it is likely the hack that led … Continue reading

Walk and Chew Gum

There was a disturbing analysis in this morning’s New York Times, suggesting that, while the shootings of two men by police may have given more life and extra urgency to the Black Lives Matter movement a few days ago, the … Continue reading

Shove Your “Thoughts and Prayers”

This week has featured a lot of tragedy. And make no mistake, it’s all tragedy. The police who were gunned down in Dallas last night is a tragedy. The killing of unarmed black men is a tragedy. And all we … Continue reading
