The Abject Stupidity of Trumpcare

It really is this simple… The Republican Party is not capable of running the government properly. If you doubt that, look at their healthcare replacement. There is no way in which is isn’t a travesty,. And yet, they just lie about it. The latest example is HHS Secretary Tom Price

How the Unicorn Left Helps the GOP

Over the past few weeks, I have been bombarded by messages from far lefties who think they are the smartest people in the world about politics. Now, many of these “progressives” have 100-200 purchased followers and many have been Tweeting for less than a week, or just took up Tweeting

STFU Bernie!

We need to be tired of this crap. Seriously… BERNIE: The Democratic brand is WORSE THAN TRUMP. Really? Worse than gutting health care & deporting DREAMERS?pic.twitter.com/teJTD6sAv7 — Mikel Jollett (@Mikel_Jollett) June 23, 2017 The far left’s current chew toy, Bernie Sanders, just told CNN that the “Democratic Brand” is really

Repost: Gun Control Has to Be Non-Negotiable

We don’t need “gun responsibility.” We don’t need “gun safety.” We need GUN CONTROL. If you’re wondering why, all I can say is, get your head out of the latest news about which Kardashian married which basketball player and which tiny little girl singer is dating which skinny white boy

Nothing Wrong With Democrats, Bernie!

I keep being told that there is something fundamentally wrong with the Democratic Party. Apparently, their “strategy” is lacking and that is why they keep on losing to the reprobates who represent the Republican Party. I am told repeatedly that Democrats don’t “fight.” I’m told that Democrats are just as

Disposing of Left Wing Trolls

So a day or two ago, I was perusing the Stephanie Miller Show Fan Club Facebook page and someone posted something of a troll, in which he (of course, it was a white man – who else would dare?) posted a declaration that Bernie Sanders would win in a walk

Trump and the London Terror Response

First of all, my heart goes out to the people of London this morning, after a series of attacks by assholes who claim affinity with extremists last night.  As of this morning, seven were killed and about 50 or so were injured. It’s a tragedy, to be sure. British PM

Stick Your Griffin Fake Outrage Up Your…

I know I discussed this issue from one angle yesterday,, in which I didn’t talk about Trump at all. But there’s another angle to this that has everything to do with Trump. If you expect people to be outraged by Kathy Griffin’s severed head photo shoot – easily the most

Forget Barron; What About Malia and Sasha?

Look, I get it… When Kathy Griffin posted an image of herself holding up a severed head that looked a lot like Donald Trump, it was wrong on many levels. For one thing, it was in bad taste; not surprising from Kathy Griffin. For another thing, we can’t let violent

Pulling Out of the Paris Accords is Stupid. Here’s Why.

The more I examine the Trump approach to climate change, which is to deny its existence and then pull out of a treaty in which President Obama and his people worked for years to get 190 countries to agree on, the more it looks like Lord Donny is doing two

We Can Do This, You Know… And We Have To

I find myself laughing at all of the breathless punditry, asking if (name of someone in the Trump Administration) has broken the law by (citation of something specific. The implied hope is that someone will do something to make it so that Lord Donny will be impeached and removed. There

Who’s Really a “Neoliberal”?

I am tired of the insult that so many on the far left toss out to those liberals who actually want to see progress in society, in which we are referred to as “neoliberal.” This is the actual definition according to Merriam Webster: neoliberal: noun – a liberal who de-emphasizes

The Importance of Truth and Facts

I”We the people” are actually in charge of this country. I just thought it was time someone pointed it out because many of us seem to have forgotten. We allowed an asshole and all of his asshole friends to be elected president through our benign neglect of the democratic process.

It’s OUR Money, Not THEIRS

One of the most absurd ways in which this country has been Republicanized comes with the concept that  the government benefits that some citizens receive are always “someone else’s money.” Republicans, especially Trump and the ironically named “Freedom Caucus,” believe that businesses that get millions or more in tax money

Being a “Political Junkie” is a Luxury

For nearly 250 years now, we have lived in one of the most stable democracies in world history. We are still that, but there are signs that such stability may be in trouble. And the reason for that is actually our fault, as Americans. I mean, it is tempting to

The Worst First 100 EVER

The first problem with writing up an assessment of the first 100 days of the Trump fiasco comes with trying to decide where to start. Many pundits have characterized the goings-on in the Lord Donny regime as something resembling an out-of-control tennis ball machine, since so much is coming at

100 Days of Pure Corruption

Okay, so, as of tomorrow, Lord Donny will have contaminated the White House with his stench for 100 days now. I’m going to split this up into two pieces because the first part of this is something important that not enough are talking about. Tomorrow, the actual 100th day, I’ll
