No, Pundits, This “Presidency” is Over. Period.

For all intents and purposes, the Lord Donny “presidency” is over. The only thing left to do is the formality of getting rid of him bodily. He began the week by making a policy speech on Afghanistan that was notable only because Lord Donny showed that he was able to …

The Press Conference That Should Spell Donny’s Doom

If you watched any of Trump’s press conference yesterday, you learned two things. You learned why his people don’t normally allow him to hold press conferences – he really sucks at it – and you also learned that Donald J. Trump is within a hair’s breadth of just plain quitting. …

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 a golf game, he takes to Twitter to insult people, …

Principle vs Ego

To all of you people who are STILL always on about “Blue Dogs,” I just have one thing to say: Get a life. You already got rid of most Blue Dogs, to the point that Republicans control everything. And might I say, the results of your campaign haven’t been very …

The Sinking “Progressive” Ship, the SS Bernie

I really hate to break it to many of you Bernie die-hards, but you are on a ship that has been sinking for years. Actually, the ship has been sinking for almost 50 years. It started to sink in 1968, when some “college educated” white liberals decided to give up …

Don’t Let Up! The Fight Goes On!

I am getting a sense that a lot of progressives and others are looking for the finish line on healthcare. They’re looking for a time when we no longer have to fight to keep health care reform. Every time the Republican assholes in Congress fail to pass a bill, a …

Proof GOP Can’t Govern; Red States Just Suck!

As I have pointed out repeatedly, the difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties has never been more stark. The Democratic ideology is about helping as many people as possible, whereas the Republican ideology is all about low taxes and not spending money on anything, except tax cuts. One of …

White Privilege on the Left

Common Dreams posted this yesterday and also put it in their Facebook page: A Thought for Sanders: Maybe He Should Join the Democratic Party? It’s a thoughtful article. While I don’t agree with everything in it, the basic idea is a good one. The caption on the Facebook post was, …

Why Republicans Can’t Govern

Imagine, if you will, that a major political party had adopted an ideological construct that was built on the following concepts; Government can’t do anything right; Every dime the federal government spends is essentially wasted; It is impossible for government to create jobs; It is impossible for government to create …

A Dose of Reality

What is our fascination with pointless publicity stunts that can’t work? Just this morning, a relatively prominent liberal Tweeted that “the Democrats” should “collectively” propose an alternative to the Republican ACA fixes. It was suggested that “the Democats” include a “public option” (another “progressive” noted that “Medicare for all” had …

Take Your “Neoliberalism” and Shove It…

You know the difference between a “neoliberal” and every other liberal out there? The people who use the term are doing so because they believe it makes them look smarter and more politically astute to… well… others who think the same way they do? And that is the key problem …

The Problem Isn’t Trump, but the Entire GOP

You know, in the last few days, I have caught myself calling the Republican healthcare bills, “Trumpcare.” I have done this numerous times. I apologize. See, here’s the thing. It should be called “GOPCare.” This is a Republican idea that Lord Donny hasn’t even read. He only feels like he …

The Fiscal Irresponsibility of #Trumpcare

If anyone is waiting for the Republican Party to do anything to “fix” the health insurance system, they are wasting brain cells. It’s never going to happen because it, quite literally can’t happen. You see, it is possible for Republicans to deal with economic matters, in the abstract, but they …

Fighting BS From the Far Left

Just in the last few days, I have been told that many actual liberals who are fighting the good fight and trying to get Democrats elected are “shills” who are trying to hurt Bernie Sanders’ chances in 2020, I have been told that many on the left agree with the …

Cutting the Crap on Paul Ryan’s Lies on Twitter

This will be a quick one… Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Tweeted this out just now: An American company taxed at 44.6% here would only be taxed at 15% in Canada. How do we expect our businesses to compete globally? — Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) July 7, 2017 As you …

To the Death of the Confederacy

The first thing I need to say before I start is that I am well aware that the target of this diatribe is a small percentage of the population. The fact that they are loud and obnoxious doesn’t negate the fact that the vast majority of Americans will like this …

Why Americans Don’t Like Progressives: Case Study

Sometimes, the professional left says something true that is still self-defeating. Like the following: Look at David Corn’s reaction to a Lord Donny Tweet crowing about a stock market rally that has been ongoing for about 7 years. Then, I’ll explain why it’s really bad… Only 52 percent of Americans …

Jobs and Income: Democrats vs. Republicans

Every election season, unicorn progressives and the professional left try to entice me to vote for an independent or third party. Hell; over the weekend, one of them was already pushing Someone like that for 2020. As if we don’t have 2018 to worry about. This points to two of …

To Be Better at Politics, Know What it Is

One of the biggest problems with the progressive movement is that a great many voters don’t like us very much. Now, for some of the unicorn types and the professional left, who see “popularity” as a synonym for “selling out,” being unliked is seen as a badge of honor. However, …

Repost: Cutting the Crap on Campaign Finances: “Wall Street” Doesn’t Support Dems. At All.

I’m reposting this because I feel that I need to. Also, WordPress is being buggy and won’t allow me to re-copy the tables below intact. But this is for everyone who’s told that Democrats are just as “beholden” to “corporations” and “Wall Street” as Republicans. It’s not even CLOSE, really. …
