The Unlikable Left

Continuing my rant… Part Four. (I wish I knew how many parts there will be, but there’s a lot to cover.) There are two overarching problems that largely prevent progressives from leading progress in this country. One is, we don’t … Continue reading

Racism Isn’t Exclusive to the Right Wing

In this, the third part of my rant on the actual liberal elites who (again, ironically) refer to pragmatic liberals like me as “liberal elites” somewhat sardonically, I want to talk more about their fantasies about how “progressives” are supposed … Continue reading

Neoliberalism, My Ass

Continuing my rant… In this section, let’s talk about ideology for a bit. Imagine, if you will, that you come back from your Caribbean vacation to find that your house is flooded. You have $20,000 available to fix whatever needs … Continue reading
